The Britain’s Got Talent host went on to explain that one binge on a cocktail of tramadol, morphine and alcohol ended with him being rushed to hospital.
“It was five in the morning and I was screaming in pain so I rang Lisa,” he said, adding that his wife was upstairs while he was on the sofas due to his injury preventing him from moving around. “I said, ‘You’re going to have to call me an ambulance. I’m in a bad way.’
“I was insane,” he confessed. “It sends you crazy. It was to the point of hearing things, seeing things in the garden and the pain was getting worse.”
