Former co-star Nitin Ganatra was one of the first to reply, implying that the food ban was his suggestion.

He said: “That’s the way forward. You’re welcome.”

She replied: “Owe it all to you.”

As fans began to share their own tales of going alcohol free, Tamzin admitted: “It’s amazing how much energy I have.”

Tamzin has not revealed if the food ban is temporary or permanent, but it’s no secret that she strives to maintain a generally healthy lifestyle.

She often posts about her hot yoga sessions and recently told her 220,000 Instagram followers that she was attempting to get herself back into regular gym sessions.

Sharing a photo of herself lifting weights, she said: “I’m finding the gym a little tricky to get back into, but having @tc_childie with me always makes it joyous @davidlloyduk#couplesthattraintogether…”

The mum of two is dating actor and personal trainer Tom Child, who is 21 years her junior.

The relationship is her second since her divorce from Miranda actor Tom Ellis in 2014.

Tamzin and Tom split in 2013, amid rumours that he cheated on her with Lost actress Emilie de Ravin.

The Lucifer actor is now engaged to US star Meaghan Oppenheimer and recently shared pictures from their wedding shower at the home of Hollywood director Len Wiseman.
