THEY used to prop up many a bar into the wee small hours… but the boys from McFly are supporting one of their own now instead.

The band have all decided to quit the booze to help Dougie Poynter, who went into rehab last year following his split from Frankie Sandford.

I’m A Celebrity winner Dougie, 24, said: “None of the boys really drink now to help me out. We are all a bit more grown-up now, so the novelty has kind of worn off. In the early days of McFly, we went wild!”

He’s not wrong. Dougie, along with Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Strictly Come Dancing champ Harry Judd, were one of the thirstiest bands in pop.

But Dougie went on: “I’m not missing the booze. I had to give up because I always took it too far. Now I’m clear-headed, I like being hangover-free – I get a lot more achieved.

“Once you get through that barrier at events and nights out, you realise you aren’t getting drunk and it’s fine.” The boys are joining Harry on his Strictly tour, which landed in Liverpool last night, so the drummer can rehearse for their upcoming tour in April.

A source said: “Tom, Dougie and Danny are joining Harry on lots of his tour dates so they can squeeze in some rehearsals ahead of April. He can’t be in two places at once, so they’ve all agreed to take their practices to him. They’re basically seeing it as a huge road trip. And it gives them a change of scenery from the studio.”

Now that’s what I call teamwork.
