In March, the 29-year-old spoke to New Idea about drink driving.
‘I can’t stand hypocrites,’ Cyrell told NI. ‘People who dish out advice and then follow none of it themselves.
‘Drink driving is a scourge in NSW. It kills so many people and regardless of how you view the law it is there to protect us all.
‘In my case the facts of the matter are that I should not have been driving. I did and it was foolish, but not deliberate in the sense I believed I could do as I please and get away with it.’
Cyrell went on to say that she believes that no one should drive at all if they’ve had even one drink.
‘There’s no discussion then,’ she says. ‘And everyone gets home safe.
‘Any amount of alcohol can lead to a momentary lapse in concentration and then it’s a game of Russian roulette. We roll the dice on our show in the search for love. There’s no need to do it on the roads as well.’
The outspoken star said despite the low-level nature of her offending she still felt deep shame and regret. She wanted her case to serve as a lesson to others thinking of driving without the right licence and with alcohol in their system. “Don’t risk it. Get an Uber or get your husband or wife to pick you up.”
