Jodi Gordon’s redemption: How the Home and Away star is staying sober and single


Jodi Gordon has banished her demons as she embarks on a new chapter of wellness and sobriety. 

The Home and Away star, 37, spent 30 days in rehab for alcohol addiction earlier this year, and is now on the path to redemption after embracing a healthier lifestyle, banning booze and staying single. 

‘Life isn’t always perfect, you go through your ups and downs’, Jodi exclusively told Daily Mail Australia at the launch of Life Botanics‘ new vitamin range in Sydney on Tuesday.

‘I’ve made some big changes this year. So it’s been a journey of getting my life to a place where I’m making changes, really taking time to invest in myself,’ she added. 

Jodi, who is Life Botanics’ celebrity ambassador, said she’s been making positive changes in recent months, including following an exercise regimen, practicing meditation and looking after her nutrition. 

‘I’m making changes where I want to create the life that is good for me. Looking after myself, my wellness. Just waking up in the morning and seeing what I really need and what’s going to be beneficial for myself to get through a day,’ she explained.

The most pertinent change, however, is her new-found sobriety. 

‘Quit alcohol. I don’t drink,’ said Jodi, who previously described booze as her ‘poison’.

Earlier this year, Jodi underwent ‘immersion therapy’ at an alcohol rehabilitation clinic called The Sydney Retreat in Stanmore, where clients are offered a ’30-day recovery program’ for $8,800.

She checked herself in following her acrimonious split from investment banker Sebastian Blackler.

The exes are currently subject to court ordered AVOs prohibiting them from contacting each other until April 2024. 

Jodi has suffered a string of doomed romances over the years, including with Channel Seven heir Ryan Stokes, entrepreneur Aidan Walsh and a lawyer only known as Cedric.

She also dated controversial real estate agent Warren Ginsberg in 2016, years before he was was convicted after pleading guilty to drug possession last year. 

When quizzed on her love life, Jodi told Daily Mail Australia that she is now single and hopes to stay that way for the time being. 

‘There’s nothing happening [in my love life],’ she said, adding: ‘I talk about health and wellbeing and things like that, and part of that is taking care of myself. Making changes for me means looking after me and not involving anyone else in it. So definitely, no time for that.’

Jodi continued: ‘Giving back to myself and making sure I’m in a good place. There’s no inviting anyone else into my life until I’m in the right space.’ 

The soap star has rarely been out of the headlines over the years – in part due to her modelling and acting career, but also because of her off-screen scandals. 

Discussing her public image, Jodi praised Life Botanics for supporting her despite negative headlines, praising brand owner Jimmy Seervai for his ‘loyalty’.

‘Life Botanics have been incredibly supportive. Jimmy and I had a chat the other day and he said to me, “We believe in you. We’ve believed in you from the first day we met. We absolute love who you are,”‘ The Celebrity Apprentice Australia star said. 

‘That means a lot to me, and that’s what a partnership should be – you stand by each other. And I think loyalty stands for something these days. And there’s trust there in that relationship as well,’ she continued. 

Jodi partnered with Life Botanics at the start of the year, and swears by the brand’s hyaluronic acid capsules and marine collagen powder to hydrate the skin and promote hair and nail growth.
