The ex-Take That singer has opened up about his personal battle with mental health in a new interview.
“Fortunately and unfortunately, left to my own devices, I’m inclined to sabotage everything," he stated in an interview with The Sun newspaper.
“I’ve got a disease that wants to kill me and it’s in my head, so I have to guard against that.
“Sometimes it overwhelms me and sometimes it’s a tool I need to get on stage. Sometimes I live in bliss and it’s wonderful.”
He added: “But most of the time I’m human — having a human experience, trying to deal with the trials and tribulations of what goes on between my ears.”
“The things I’ve put myself through, I’ve been close to… It’s like, ‘By the grace of God go I’. It’s been so close so many times.”
