For years he was known as the Made In Chelsea 'bad boy' partying to excess in high-end nightclubs.

But Spencer Matthews has revealed it was the anger he was harbouring about losing his brother at the age of ten that drove him to start abusing alcohol at a young age.

In an emotional interview on the Mail's brand new Everything I Know About Me podcast, the star said he rejects the term 'childhood trauma' and therapy he sought after his sibling disappeared descending Mount Everest 25 years ago made him feel 'uncomfortable'.
