Ok maybe some of you don’t want to read that as it contains spoilers from Unsaid things but if you don’t mind I advice you that is so heartbroken, but in the other hand it shows how proud we all the galaxy Defenders are of Dougie knowing the pain and the difficult times he has passed through and how strong he come out of all of them.

He revealed that he attempted suicide in a fume-filled car before checking into rehab, where he was treated for depression

Tormented McFly star Dougie Poynter told last night how he was driven to the brink of despair by his inner demons.

The I’m A Celeb winner revealed that he attempted suicide in a fume-filled car before checking into rehab, where he was treated for depression.

Singer and bass guitarist Dougie, 24, made the shock confession at a Channel 4 recording of Alan Carr’s Chatty Man – and drew gasps from the audience.

He blurted out his feelings in an emotional interview as Carr asked him about the band’s autobiography, Unsaid Things… Our Story, which includes his bid to kill himself in February 2011.

Dougie told the show he had been in a “really dark” place at the time.

Carr added: “Last time you were on Chatty Man you weren’t yourself.

“Now I realise you were battling drink and drugs. Did you feel better once you wrote about it?”

Dougie replied: “It’s always good to reflect on that sort of stuff. I’m in a really, really good place now. It is quite easy to forget.

“It’s quite therapeutic to go back, quite scary and a bit of an eye opener into how dark it can get if you take your foot off the gas and stop looking after yourself.”

Bandmate Harry Judd added: “Half the time you didn’t know what you were doing – it was us telling you.”

Dougie replied: “Yes, because I was so battered.”

Tom Fletcher said the band didn’t want to hide the truth from fans.

He added: “We are all in good places now. Dougie has sorted himself out and I am married.”

A pal revealed that Dougie spent more than a month in the Priory.

He made a good recovery and went on to win the 11th series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

The friend said of his suicide bid: “We were all devastated.

“His drinking was out of control and he thought ending it all was the easy and perhaps only option available to him.”
