Doctor Who’s Billie Piper confesses she misses ‘boozing all day in the pub’

Billie Piper has admitted she misses boozing all day in the pub as the UK gears up to ease its lockdown in April.

The Brit actress, 38, confessed that she longs to be "free" again and have a big drinking session.

Billie revealed: "When people ask, 'What do you miss about not having kids and being free?' it’s those spontaneous pub days.

"Where you’re like, 'I’m going to stay for eight hours and that’s it'. There’s no 'you’re a bad person' if you do that. There’s no guilt.

"There is really no downside to it apart from maybe a hangover."

The former Doctor Who star has two sons with her actor ex-hubby Laurence Fox and a daughter with her Tribes frontman partner Johnny Lloyd.

It comes after the star said she needed to "fall apart" following the breakdown of her marriage to Chris Evans.

Billie made headlines when she eloped to Las Vegas to wed Chris when she was just 18 years old, while he was 16 years her senior but their marriage only lasted three years.

They were married from 2001 to 2004.

In an interview with Red Magazine, she described her 20s as “wild” in reaction to being treated like a “flashy sales girl" in her youth.

She explained: "I really needed to fall apart in that sort of reckless 20s way.

"To not care about looking put-together every waking moment of my life or saying the wrong things as a role model to children."

Billie came to prominence as a singer at age 15 with her single Because We Want To, before later starring in Doctor Who, and Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

Billie said her early relationships were fuelled by an "extreme desire to feel loved and safe" coming from spending a lot of time alone as a child.

"I've (since) learned about attachment issues and co-dependency, which I never saw as a problem, until I did that work on myself," she revealed.

Their marriage only lasted three years but the pair are said to still be close friends with Billie comparing their relationship to “your university years”.
