BBC Factual has announced a new documentary with musician Matt Willis about his battle with addiction in Matt Willis: Addiction and Me.
The no holds barred, raw and open documentary will uncover the struggles the musician, actor and dad of three has experienced with drug and alcohol addiction.
It was a battle that pushed him to the brink, and despite reaching dizzying heights of success as part of the band Busted, Willis was finding it hard to cope behind closed doors.
Willis will look at the potential reasons behind his addiction and speak to other families, experts, counsellors and support groups to try and understand why some people become alcohol and drug dependent.
With an everyday effort to remain clean, Willis also looks at the help available to those fighting addiction and the latest developments in treatments.
The documentary highlights the importance of the unwavering support Willis receives from his friends, family and wife Emma in helping him stay clean.
Matt Willis commented: “Whilst I live an amazing life and I am hugely grateful for the opportunities I’ve had, when it comes to my mental health I still find myself battling with the ripple effects of my old addictions. I know I’m not alone and I’m determined to discover how others, like myself, can learn to live with this.”
Matt Willis: Addiction and Me will air on BBC One and be available on BBC iPlayer.
