'I'm Not Alone' hitmaker Calvin Harris has been teetotal since he embarrassed himself several times while he was drunk
Calvin Harris gave up alcohol after he dived into a crowd at a music festival.
The 'I'm Not Alone' hitmaker - who has been teetotal for eight months - quit drinking following several embarrassing incidents which resulted in him throwing himself into a throng of fans.
He said: "It was a series of events where I realised it was getting embarrassing. When I saw myself on T4 On The Beach in 2007 it was extraordinary.
"Usually I can remember things if I've been drinking, but I couldn't remember being there. I was just watching and thinking, 'Who is this guy?' It sounded amazingly out of tune and I dived into the crowd. I get a lot more done now that I don't drink - I get up early and do stuff."
However, there is one alcohol-fuelled evening the 25-year-old star does not regret.
He explained: "I met my girlfriend at my second show and it was lovely. I was in a terrible state and I told her that I loved her within half an hour. Usually that would put someone off!"
