The 'Voice Kids UK' judge was adamant he wasn't going to rely on medication when he was struggling with his mental health and, instead, he became hooked on podcasts and started seeing a counsellor which made him feel so much better.

Speaking to OK! magazine, he said: "Everyone's minds are different but I got myself better by seeing a therapist, listening to podcasts and I didn't take medication, as I wanted to face it. I was making myself ill; it affected my work, my life and my happiness more than anything. I get a little bit of it now but nothing like it used to be."

The 32-year-old singer didn't realise he was battling with anxiety until he shared his physical symptoms with his McFly band mate Dougie Poynter - who spent some time in rehab for depression back in 2011 - while they were lining up together one day.

He explained: "One of the first people I talked to was Dougie [Poynter]. We were coming out of this queue when we were travelling and I felt so claustrophobic, as though I couldn't get out of a situation of anxiety. I said to him: 'Mate, sometimes I feel weird like my heart rate goes up, cold sweating and my head goes dizzy.' Dougie said: 'I feel the same.' From then, I was like, so it's not only me."

Danny has been very open about his past recently as he admitted last year that he hasn't spoken to his father since he walked out on him and his mother 14 years ago.

He said: "I don't want to kick it off again. Anything negative, I just get rid of it. I kind of have to for my own sanity and happiness. I need to move on with my life."

But the hunk doesn't have time to sit and dwell on his relationship with his dad Alan as he's now a father to his own son Cooper after his wife Georgia gave birth this year.
