McFly's Dougie Poynter talks going tee-total

McFly's Dougie Poynter has revealed that his McFly bandmates have been toning down their drinking in an effort to help him out.

Poynter entered rehab early last year, with his admission attributed to stress and his break up with the Saturdays' Frankie Sandford.

The bassist is now also tee-total and he told the Mirror that his bandmates have reducing their drink intake to help him - although the novelty of drinking seems to have worn off for the boys. He said:

"None of the boys really drink now to help me out. We are all a bit more grown-up now, so the novelty has kind of worn off. In the early days of McFly, we went wild!"

The I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! 2011 winner also revealed that he's not missing alcohol - and admits that he is a lot more productive as a result. He added:

"I'm not missing the booze. I had to give up because I always took it too far. Now I'm clear-headed, I like being hangover-free - I get a lot more achieved. Once you get through that barrier at events and nights out, you realise you aren't getting drunk and it's fine."
