The Wanted's Max George reveals his first serious mental health episode came after they got a No1 hit

SINGER Max George has told how he experienced his first serious mental health episode after The Wanted had a No1 hit.

Max, 32, recently disclosed he had been struggling with depression since 2010.

The boy band’s debut single All Time Low topped the chart that year.

Max told the latest edition of Hello! magazine: “It doesn’t matter what you do or who you are, you can literally have everything you want, but as success happened, mentally I was breaking down.

“My first proper episode was when The Wanted went to number one.

"I’d achieved everything I had ever wanted but I couldn’t handle how it exploded so fast.”

He said it took him a long time to accept his mental health issues and to speak to loved ones.

Max, who took part in Strictly Come Dancing last year, is being supported by his girlfriend Stacey Cooke, ex-wife of footballer Ryan Giggs.

The Wanted went on indefinite hiatus in 2014.
