Things for Dougster are well and truly on the up…
We were so worried about McFly’s Dougie Poynter when we heard that he had checked into rehab in March this year. There was quite a bit on his plate and because of this he suffered with alcohol issues.
Now though Dougie’s life is back on track and he credits his stay in rehab for saving his life.
"I went into rehab after a long time having issues with myself. One thing led to another and all of a sudden I was in there,” he told The Sun.
"It was either that or God knows what would have happened. It was solely the best thing I've ever done, it completely and utterly saved my life. I'm all hunkydory now.”
The I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here winner also admitted that it wasn’t easy when he first left treatment.
"When I came out I was a bit confused as to the way I was going to be living my life from then on, but I guess I got lucky.
"After a few months I started seeing changes, my relationships with family and friends, and life in general, got better."
We’re so glad to hear Dougie talking like this again and it’s good to see how well rehab can work.
Are you a fan of Dougie? Think he is a good role model for people suffering with mental health issues?
