Take That, alcoholism

It appears that Mark Owen has some sort of deal with The Sun for revealing juicy revelations in his private life: yesterday we found out that he’d been putting it about as much as Tiger Woods and today we are told that for many years he was knocking back the grog like George Best. We can only imagine the price that’s being paid for this goldmine of celebrity tittle-tattle....

The Take That heartthrob has also enlisted the help of his best mate Robbie Williams to pull himself back from the brink of full-blown alcohol dependency. With Take That back on top that might be handy for the boy Owen.

‘I told the lads a few weeks ago that I am trying to deal with a drink problem,’ he revealed today to the sleazy tabloid. ‘I spoke to Rob about it, too. I've always tried not to involve anyone else, including the boys. Maybe the lads might have suspected sometimes. But they knew I was making the right moves to go forward and they respected that.

‘Me and Howard were up late in the studio and we were talking about me being drunk. He was saying I do this thing with my head, where it sways around and he can't understand what I am saying. So they were all aware I got myself in a state. I admitted I had a drink problem I never knew I had.

‘I felt better after that. You want friends around you and friends close to you for help. I'm glad I've told them, so they look after me a bit now. I still have the odd drink but it might have to turn to cold turkey eventually.’
