Jack has previously opened up about his issues with addiction.
Speaking out, he said: “To touch on what’s going on, I’m really struggling. Really struggling with anxiety and depression, addiction and I’ve made some good steps today to get help.
“I can’t do it on my own. In this fame industry it’s hard, it’s so cut throat. One minute people like you and one minute they don’t.
“I’ve had a lot of fake friends come and go, I was surprised when I was in my dark space, all the people who said they would be there, weren’t.”
Kerry, who has been open about her own issues with addiction in the past explained that she had to move 400 miles away and “cut people out of her life”.
She said: “Even when addicts go into rehab, in my opinion, they can’t go straight back to their old life afterwards – you have to really re-evaluate things.”
Last year, Jack made the heartbreaking confession that he had tried to take his own life after his “money ran out”.
Jack made the brave admission on The Steven Sulley Study podcast.
Blaming his downfall on his lack of routine after he left the ITV2 show, Jack said his life quickly “spiralled out of control”.
The worst moment, he claims, is when he realised he wasn’t making the same money he used to.
“Christmas time I took an overdose mate,” he said on the podcast. “I was ready to go. I didn’t want to be here. It’s upsetting to think.”
Despite his downfall, Jack is set to make an explosive return to the world of reality television by joining the cast of The Only Ways Is Essex to confront ex-girlfriend Frankie Sims.
