Calvin Harris revealed he used to drink two bottles of Jack Daniels a night, before he gave up alcohol.

The DJ has opened up about his high alcohol consumption in the past and gave up drink four years ago after he realised that it was affecting his health and work.

The 34-year-old told fans about his excessive drinking habits during a Twitter Q&A last night, in which a fan said that they missed seeing him on-stage.

“The last thing I want to do is down 2 bottles of jack daniels a night, live on greggs pasties and sleep on an absolutely stinking bus all year, scream down a mic for 55 minutes and pretend to play a keyboard 5x a week those days are behind me son,” he responded to the fan.

When another follower criticised the DJ’s past choices and called him “pretentious”, Calvin said: “Uh no just someone who’s already done that in their life for years.”

“Wouldn’t dream of encouraging anyone to drink 2 bottle of JD a night and live off Greggs the baker got me in a right old state my dear,” he added.

The DJ previously told BBC: “I stopped drinking because it actually was making me ill. It was affecting my brain in the worst way.”
