McFly bassist Dougie Poynter has checked into a rehabilitation centre as he struggles to move on following his split from Frankie Sandford.
The musician's on/off relationship with The Saturdays star came to an end in November, marking their second split in less than a year. And now Poynter has reportedly entered Britain's The Priory clinic for a month to overcome his personal issues.
McFly bandmate Tom Fletcher has confirmed his pal is in rehab, writing on his Twitter, "Obviously you're all reading rumors about Dougie. Please don't worry. We don't know what the tabloids will say tomorrow but he is in rehab. He's just been having a tough time lately and needed a few weeks rest so he's fighting fit and ready to slap that bass for you on tour."
Speaking about his heartache before he entered rehab, Poynter told Britain's Daily Mirror, "It's crap, but what makes it worse is getting constant reminders. When it's a regular person, it's bad enough because you hear their name once in a while, or your mutual friends see them. But I see her everywhere! In magazines, on TV, on the radio. It's horrible!"
We hope you get well soon Dougie!
