East 17 Star Overcomes Agoraphobia For Band’s Comeback

Tony Mortimer of spoke with The Sun about the boy band’s comeback, and his reclusive behavior after the band split nearly a decade ago. “Toward the end I hid away after gigs and when the band split up I became really agoraphobic,” he said. “If you walk out of the house everyday and hundreds of people mob you it has a mental effect. The day after we split I had nothing to get out of bed for and when I did I got hassle. So I stayed indoors up until only two and a half years ago. I put myself through therapy, got self-coaching CDs and saw a psychiatrist. I still get long times where I don’t leave the house. But I’m a stronger person now. It will be hard to go back to who I once was but I think I’ll be fine.”
