Dougie decided to make the step into recovery after struggling to cope with his split from his girlfriend, Saturdays star Frankie Sandford.
When Frankie dumped him back in November, sources say that he's been having a difficult time getting over the breakup. The source says:
"Dougie was absolutely heartbroken when Frankie dumped him. He saw himself getting married and having kids and being with her for life. And he was just crushed. It got to the point where he was struggling to get through the day so he decided to seek help at the Priory clinic. He’s been in there working hard on getting his head straight. He’s not had a phone or been in touch with any of the band. But they’re backing him all the way and hoping he comes out a far happier person."
We're glad he's taking the right steps to get better. We wish him the best and can't wait to see him get back on his feet.
