Another article of Harry talking about Dougie in rehab, it says practically the same that the one I posted yesterday. (you can check the one I posted yesterday HERE)

McFly drummer Harry Judd has spoken out about the agony he suffered watching bandmate Dougie Poynter check into rehab after his break-up with The Saturday’s Frankie Sandford.

Poynter, winner of ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’, split from the popstar just prior to Christmas 2010, and ended up going to rehab the next month – something which his mate Harry Judd just couldn’t bear to see.

“It was really hard,” Judd confessed, “he’s one of my best mates. He was 15 when he joined the band and I looked after him a lot. I was really upset for him, but he’s turned his life around. He’s a credit to himself.

“He’s very mature for his age and – like Tom and Danny – he’s a very special person and very unique. He’s genuinely the most lovable guy. He deserves the happiness he’s having right now. All I care about is Dougie. He has a beautiful new girlfriend; I’ve never seen him so happy.”

Poynter is fine now and spoke about the break-up with the Daily Mail: “Of course I was gutted about the break-up. It was totally unexpected and I really thought things were going well between us. It was bad timing just before Christmas too. I didn’t fit in with The Saturdays and JLS crowd and party scene anyway.”

McFly have lined-up a nice UK tour for March later this year. If you’re a fan, get your hands on a pair of tickets.

Pudd Love is so cute<33

Strictly champ Harry Judd has opened up about the pain of seeing his McFly bandmate Dougie Poynter go through rehab.

Dougie – who was crowned King of the Jungle on the last series of I’m A Celebrity – checked into rehab in February last year following the breakdown of his relationship with girlfriend Frankie Sandford of The Saturdays.

Speaking of the experience, Harry told OK! magazine: “It was really hard. He’s one of my best mates.

“He was 15 when he joined the band and I looked after him a lot. I was really upset for him, but he’s turned his life around. He’s a credit to himself. He’s very mature for his age and – like Tom and Danny – he’s a very special person and very unique.

“He’s genuinely the most lovable guy. He deserves the happiness he’s having right now.”

Shortly after he split from Frankie last January, Dougie told the Daily Mail: “Of course I was gutted about the break-up. It was totally unexpected and I really thought things were going well between us. It was bad timing just before Christmas too.

“I didn’t fit in with The Saturdays and JLS crowd and party scene anyway.”

Harry has been quick to reassure McFly fans that Dougie is now fine, saying: “All I care about is Dougie. He has a beautiful new girlfriend, I’ve never seen him so happy.”

Aaww, bless!

  1. 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. His break up with The Saturday’s singer Frankie Sandford was difficult for him 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?

  1. Pop star DOUGIE POYNTER is convinced his stint in rehab saved his life.

    The McFly musician checked into a clinic in March (11) to deal with his alcohol issues following the breakdown of his relationship with The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford.

    The bassist has since bounced back, winning reality TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! earlier this month (Dec11), and he now reveals he is glad he faced up to his problems.

    He tells The Sun, “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.

    “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.

    “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.

  1. McFly guitarist Dougie Poynter opens up about his ‘darker days’ to Mark Wright on I’m A Celebrity

    Dougie Poynter has vowed never to touch alcohol again after successfully completing a stint in rehab earlier this year.

    The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant told TOWIE’s Mark Wright that he loved drinking ‘just a bit too much’ and felt like an ’empty shell’ before he was admitted for treatment.

    ‘I was just constantly bummed out,’ Dougie, 24, admitted on last night’s show.

    ‘For like years of my life, if I really think about it.

    I loved isolating – just being by myself and getting battered.’

    And Dougie admits that his problems got worse when he split with Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, 22, after dating on and off for 2 years.

    ‘That’s when it escalated even more,’ he tells Mark, 24.

    ‘I wasn’t really comfortable in my own skin any more.

    ‘So I went and saw this bloke and he sent me to rehab.

    ‘It was hard…it was really hard…but it was one of the best things I ever did.’
