 Admitting that they began when he was just seven years old, Matt Willis has opened up about his battles with drug and alcohol addiction.

The Busted star, 35, detailed how he would "get high" off his asthma inhaler when he was just a child as he admitted: "I'm an addict all the way through".
The rocker, who shares three children with wife Emma Willis, said his career in the music industry had nothing to do with his addiction problems, and that he believes he'd have had problems with drug and alcohol abuse no matter what line of work he'd ended up in.
Speaking to television presenter Matt Johnson and life coach Ben Bidwell in their new mental health podcast series The Naked Professors, he said: "I was in trouble before the band ended, I was a massive alcoholic.
"I don't think being in a band made me the way I am. I would have been the same if I worked in Tesco or a bank, I am an addict all the way through."
Matt says his addiction to drink and drugs came from not being able to deal with his feelings and that he started getting high at the age of seven.
He said: "Everything that takes me away from feeling the way I feel is a problem for me because I cannot deal with how I feel, so I will do anything possible to take that away and change the way I feel.
"I was mildly asthmatic as a kid and I used to hide under my duvet and take as many hits of my inhaler as I possibly could when I was about seven because it would make my head throb, make my lips tingle.
"I'd be getting high in my bed at seven years old so I have always had this in me to find ways to get away from dealing with who I am and how I feel. Quitting drinking was one of the hardest tasks in my life."
He added: "I did cocaine a few times every now and then when I was drinking to keep me sober. We'd call it a sharpener, so I'd be a bit p****d, do a couple of lines and go, 'Oh I'll be alright'.

"I hated it, hated everything about cocaine, hated the way it made me feel, hated everything about it but I couldn't stop doing it which is madness.
"It is my illness. You have this hole and you try and shovel everything in it to fill it but the hole is never ending."
