Davina was living between France and the UK at the time.
She said: “When I say I’m half nun, half wild child, it’s because of that life that I’ve had… drugs at 12 with my mum. Smoking weed at 12, coke at 14.
“I did coke with my mum at 15, I did it with my sister at 14. And then I’d get back to the UK and it would be back into your second hand clothes and safe, small life.”
She added: “I probably need to clarify that me and my mum only did drugs twice.
“I mean, I know that’s twice times too many in my book. But I don’t want to give this impression that she and I were taking tons of drugs together, because that would be a false impression.”
Davina credits Caroline for looking after her at the time despite the drug use.
She said: “My sister was my lifeline in Paris. Even though we did do drugs together, and I know that sounds bad, she was my rock. We stuck together.”
She added: “I did like going to Paris because I was young and they didn’t stop me from doing anything. It’s crazy.”
Davina continued to take drugs as she got older and eventually she became addicted to heroin.
The star admits she took drugs because it helped her cope with her inner demons.
She said: “What drugs did for me at that time was they made me feel safe. They made me feel like I was being hugged in that maternal way. They filled this hole.
“And then as soon as the drugs started running out, the hole would be there again and I’d think, ‘God, what’s the next thing I can get?’.”
