Jack Fincham has told how he suffers "a lot with [his] mental health" and "battles demons" on a daily basis.
The former 'Love Island' star – who shot to fame on the 2018 series of the ITV2 dating show – says living "under a microscope" has "taken a massive toll on my mental health", and he has urged people to "be kind".
He wrote: "I don’t normally do these kinds of posts but I wanted to speak out about it. Only my close friends and family will know that I suffer a lot with my mental health and battle demons every single day of my life, which many of us do. I just want you all to know that it WILL get better and life is going to throw stuff at you that you think you can’t get through but you WILL. Things are on the up now and over the last few years living life under a microscope it has taken a massive toll on my mental health, but I’m working away at being the best possible me I can be. Nobody is perfect but such is life, we’re all human at the end of the day so be kind always please. You literally never know what people are going through privately and you never know what can tip them over the edge. Sometimes, from the outside looking in, a confident geeza like myself, you would never believe suffers with mental health privately, but it exists and mental health has no stereotypes. (sic)"
The 'Don't Rock The Boat' star says his "therapy" is boxing and exercise, and he has encouraged others to find a hobby which gives people an "inner release".
He added: "My therapy is exercise and boxing it helps me focus, my best advise is find a hobby that gives you that inner release. Male suicide rates are far too high and something needs to be done. I have a voice and I want to use it. Just be kind. Be kind. Lots of love Jack x (sic)"
