Big Brother wild child Marco Pierre White Junior has shocked the nation by revealing that he has finally turned his back on his drugs lifestyle after finding love.
The booze and drug-loving 21 year old reality star has said that since he met business student Francesca Suter six months ago, he has managed to turn his life around and is now enjoying a much more relaxed life in the country away from the temptation of drugs.
“I’ve cut myself off from a lot of people who do drugs and drink,” the son of the famous chef told the Mirror.
“Now I’m relaxing, tending to the animals. We’ve got pigs, bulls – and turkeys. And I’ve got Francesca.”
Marco’s new life living on a farm in Wiltshire has given him a new lease of life and he is now determined to steer clear of drugs for good.
But while he is smitten with his new squeeze, he feels that he still has to get her parents on side.
“I’ve met her family. I love them – I hope they love me,” he said. “I think I’ve got a bit of work to do to prove I’m no longer the guy I was.”
Marco has previously opened up about how he start taking cocaine at the age of 12.
Since leaving the Big Brother house last summer, he has regularly posted videos on Snapchat showing him in crazed states seemingly under the influence of something or other.
Recently he revealed that his cartilage inside his nose had collapsed which meant that every time he sneezed, his nose would gush with blood.
But when he met Francesca, he knew he had to choose between drugs and love.
“I’ve never felt like this about anyone before,” he said of choosing Francesca, “I don’t want it to end. She’s the most amazing girl.”
“We’ve been dating for three months,” he recently told OK! online. “But we’ve known each other seven months. It feels a lot longer, and I’m totally smitten.
“I was in love four years ago, and I thought that was love. But now, it’s like – you can’t go a day without breathing, I can’t go a day without her. It’s like breathing.”
