Mark Owen has entered a rehab facility to treat his alcohol addiction
Mark Owen has gone to rehab.
The Take That singer, who last week revealed he had cheated on his wife Emma with ten women before they were married, has checked into a clinic for his alcohol problem.
He said: "I've made my bed and I've got to lie in it. I was very lucky to marry Emma because I've not always been a great partner.
"I have had issues for a long time. I've drunk for the last ten years and it got to a bad point. That's been my issue. I have been a prat."
Mark, 38, married Emma in November 2009 and the pair have two children - Elwood, three and Willow Rose, 14 months.
His Take That band mates - Gary Barlow, Jason Orange and Howard Donald - have given Mark some time off from recording their new album to deal with his issues.
A source told the Sun: "They have told him he can just come back when he's ready. There is absolutely no time pressure. "
Since the revelations, Emma has been seen without her wedding ring.
