Christine McGuinness was beaming with pride as she said seeing her former addict father stay free from his heroin addiction 'feels like a dream'.

The model, 36, shared a sweet picture with her father, Johnny, on Instagram on Thursday, and revealed he is now 'full of life'.

While supplying the drug can lead to life behind bars. The drug is highly addictive and can be injected, smoked or snorted and carries the risk of death due to overdose.
