In the Instagram post, he said that he is still working hard with sobriety and is going to continue outpatient care.

He said: "This week I completed a 40 day stay at a treatment centre for alcohol addiction and remain in outpatient care.

"The support I have received from the family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It's given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.

"Battling addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle... I am fighting for myself and my family. So many people have reached out on social media and spoken about their own journeys with addiction. To those people, I want to say thank you. Your strength is inspiring and supporting me in ways I didn't think was possible. It helps to know I am not alone."

He finishes by saying: "I hope down the road I can offer an example to others who are struggling."
