EASTENDERS star Mica Paris has revealed her intensive health regime, including five days a week workouts.

Mica opened up on being a grandmother, and how she’s able to stay active for them due to the way she’s taken care of herself over the years.

She told HOAR: “I’m still going. Music keeps you young and alcohol ages you and makes you old and it’s really bad for the voice.”

The star doesn’t drink alcohol, but admits she had some “wonderful times” when she used to.

Mica continued: “I don’t miss drinking. You suddenly get to a place where you don’t even think about it.

“I can run around and I gym it five days a week. When my grandson comes, he’s nearly four, and trust me that boy has me running around. I need to be fit for him.”

Discussing her “strict” routine, Mica elaborated: “I drink spirulina every day and have done for twenty years, as well as 2000 milligrams of vitamin C.

“I also take things to balance my hormones, whether that’s evening primrose or starflower. It’s very important to keep hormones balanced.

“I also workout for 40 minutes a day, five days a week, and do pilates once a week too. I’m good to go!”

As well as her busy music career, Mica also has a documentary coming out this year which she’s “very excited for.”

“I’m also going to be making album number 10 this year, and I have a book coming out so those are my three big projects this year. So wish me luck.”

Mica was speaking before her performance at the Nordoff Robbins Legends of Rugby Dinner.

Following a stunning act that had everyone up on their feet, the talented star took to Instagram and wrote: “Singing my heart out for @nordoffrobbins last night, thanks so much for having me 💥.”

Mica, a beloved TV presenter and musician, released her debut album So Good in 1998 which went Platinum.

She’s also turned her hand to presenting on both the radio and TV.

Featuring on Gok Wan’s Miss Naked Beauty, ITV’s CelebAir, and she co-hosted BBC’s What Not To Wear.

In 2006 Mica took part in Strictly Come Dancing, where she was partnered up with professional Ian Waite, but the pair were eliminated in the second week.
