    Darren told The Sunday Times: ‘I was homeless. I slept in a friend’s car in North London. Mine had been driven away by the bailiffs and this friend’s husband let me sleep in his old car.

    ‘I would park up in this car park in Hampstead from the summer until about November when it started to get too cold. I had no sleeping bag. I just slept under some coats.’ 

    It was after his split from Hear’Say singer Suzanne Shaw and performing as Joseph that he had to live from the car.

    He went on: ‘I didn’t even have a bank account. I barely ate or drank, and I didn’t even need money for the drugs because I’d spent so much with my dealer over the years, he was giving me freebies.’ 

    Darren’s expensive drug habit worked out at £2,100 a week at one point. 

    He also said that he believes he has spent a staggering £500,000 on cars, and even spent £30,000 on an engagement ring for his ex Tracy Shaw.

    Darren now lives with his fifth fiancee Sophie Ladd and has three children. 

    He suffered from a drugs relapse 15 months ago when he locked himself in his bathroom and had a week long cocaine binge. 

    Now sober, he is set to make a comeback on tour with the show Footloose.
