Tamzin Outhwaite, Carol Vorderman, Gillian Taylforth are just a few of the celebrities who have shared their secrets on how to keep healthy over the festive season.
They've shared their top tips and the products they use to help keep the winter bugs at bay.
Actress follows a simple health routine to make sure she's at the best all-year round. She says: "I take Selenium - ACE tablets, which have antioxidants and help with your immune system."
Selenium-ACE + Vitaberry is specifically designed with immunity in mind. It contains the essential trace mineral selenium, plus vitamins A, C and E with the added benefit of natual antioxidant polyphenols from fruit, to help maintain a healthy immune system and offer protection against free radicals. (Available from Boots, Tesco, Waitrose and Morrisons, prices at £5.95)
Carol Vorderman explains: "I rarely get ill, I eat well and take Sambucol Ummuno Forte Effervescent Tablets, which I find really helps to boost my immunity and ward off colds. On the rare occasion that I have developed a cold or flu, I have found that Sambucol helps to fight it off. As soon as I start feeling poorly, I just add one to a glass of water and let the fizz do the rest." (Available from Morrison, Boots, Superdrug, Holland & Barrett, RRP £8.99)
Masterchef winner and TV presenter, knows how to keep well in winter: "Comvita UMF5+ Manuka Honey has antibacterial and antiviral properties, so it’s great for fighting colds. Look out for the UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) on the pot – the higher it is the more potent the honey.”
Tamzin Outhwaite is supporting the launch of Covonia’s new Double Impact Lozenges. “I always keep a pack of Covonia Extra Strong Lozenges handy, especially before a performance.”
(Available from pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide, priced at £1.79 for a 51g pack.)
, TV Presenter on Loose Women says:  “I heard from a friend that Rhodiola rosea can help relieve symptoms of stress, such as fatigue and exhaustion.  Trying to juggle a full time job constantly being in the public eye alone is certainly quite stressful, let along looking after my daughter and renovating my 17th century house is definitely quite a lot to take on at once.

"So I felt I could do with a little pick me up to help manage my energy and stress levels, especially during the winter months. I started taking the herbal medicine Vitano, which contains Rhodiola rosea, as I wanted to try a natural approach and I really noticed how quickly it helped reduce my stress levels and gave me an instant energy boost, plus I was able to concentrate better both at home and at work.” (Available from Boots, leading pharmacies and health-food stores, RRP £13.27)

And finally, impressionist Alistair McGowan uses Zinc and Echinacea to keep colds at bay, using your voice to make a living means he can’t afford for it to be affected by coughs and colds. He says: “I use Echinacea and zinc to ward of colds. My problem is that colds affect my voice and make every impression sound like me with a cold, so if ever I lose my voice, I don’t just lose one but 120 voices.” (Both available from Holland and Barrett, prices start from £5.49)
