“And it’s something I’ve never really spoken about. I kind of felt for a while that people were jumping on a kind of bandwagon.

“I take mental health really seriously. So I was always very very conscious that I don’t want to appear to be doing something for attention.

“But I do think it’s something important to say at the moment,” he explained.

“I don’t always feel 100% and I practice positivity…some of it is what you’re born with but definitely you can get skills that enable you to change your view of a situation.”
