Johnny Vegas has opened up on his mental health struggles in recent years, revealing that at one point he thought that he was "dying".
The 53-year-old comedian was filming the second series of his Channel 4 show Carry On Glamping when he had to halt production due to his problems.
The programme follows Vegas and his assistant Bev as they run his 'Field of Dreams' glamping site in Derbyshire.
In the new series, he admits to the cameras: "I don't want to be dramatic, but I don't know if I would be here discussing it now. I honestly thought I was dying. It was horrible.
"I felt my body was shutting down. A lot of things were building up and with the (glamping) site, there was so much to get done.
"I was coping, I was drinking, getting through stuff, still living it large and my body and mind weren't up for that. It was like being snow blind."
He continued: "I can't see the wood from the trees, everybody wants something from me and I've got nothing left to give. I am running on empty.
"I don't know what would have happened if I hadn't put the brakes on."
Johnny Vegas: Carry On Glamping returns to Channel 4 at 9pm on January 24.
