Take That star checks into rehab

Take That star Mark Owen has checked into rehab - just days after he admitted cheating on his now wife for five years.

In a very public confession on Wednesday (March 10) Owen admitted to The Sun newspaper that he was "deeply sorry" to have cheated with several women during his relationship with Emma Ferguson, the mother of his two children. He and Ferguson married in a lavish ceremony in the Scottish Highlands last winter.

The boyband member, who was previously thought to be squeaky clean, also said he had fought issues with alcohol for the last 10 years.

"I carried on drinking through my relationship with Emma and it got to the point where she asked me to stop," he said.

"I've never liked drinking during the day but once the kids went to bed, I'd get the bottle open and off I went.

"I have been a prat. I wasn't thinking - I don't think logically when I'm drunk. I'm not the person I want to be when I'm drunk. I can be a nightmare to live with."

A spokesman for the 38-year-old said: "I can confirm Mark checked into a private clinic on Friday (March 12)."
