McFly star Dougie Poynter has spent the last month in rehab.

It's thought the 23 year old is struggling to come to terms with his split from Frankie Sandford of The Saturdays.

The pair were in the process of buying a new house together when they split in November. Frankie is now dating footballer Wanye Bridge.

McFly have confirmed that bassist Dougie Poynter has been in the Priory for the last four weeks as he struggles to get over this split with The Saturday's Frankie Sandford.

Tom from McFly wrote on his Twitter over the weekend, "Obviously you're all reading rumours about Dougie. Please don't worry. We don't know what the tabloids will say tomorrow but he is in rehab. He's just been having a tough time lately and needed a few weeks rest so he's fighting fit and ready to slap that bass for you on tour. X"

Dougie himself last tweeted back on 14th February.

The band have delayed the start of their tour, moving the first three dates to the end of the schedule.
