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.
