Pickard, who was also fined £850, may have his ban cut by three months if he takes a rehabilitation course.

The 37-year-old was driving in Milton Keynes at 1am on October 15 when he was stopped by police for a routine check. After being taken to a local police station, a blood test revealed that he was 14 milligrams over the legal alcohol limit.

Pickard's solicitor today told the court: "He wishes to express his remorse and regret, and he acknowledges he made a grave error in judgement.

"He had consumed alcohol earlier that day. He thought the alcohol had gone from his system and he apologises." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
