Former East 17 pop star Brian Harvey has entered a clinic for depression - but his spokesman has denied reports the singer attempted suicide.
Brian Harvey found fame in boy band East 17 in the early 1990s
A worried friend took Harvey, 30, to hospital after he took "one or two" sleeping tablets, the spokesman said.
He was later released and went on to play a gig the following night.
"I spoke to him this morning and he is finding the story of his supposed suicide attempt quite amusing," said his spokesman.
Harvey is being treated at the same clinic he went to before going on reality TV show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here in 2004.
His stay in the Australian jungle was delayed following the death of his grandmother, but he quit the show after less than a week.
On Tuesday, his spokesman said: "Reports of Brian attempting suicide are totally untrue.
"On Friday night, he was feeling depressed and his dad came round to see him.
"His dad gave him one or two sleeping tablets which knocked him out big time.
"Later that night, a friend went round to his house, saw him out cold and thought something was wrong, so took him to hospital."
Doctors soon realised Harvey was fine and sent him home.
The spokesman added: "Brian's sleep problems are part of his depression and he realised they were a danger sign.
"So yesterday, he checked himself into a clinic for a week's treatment. "
Harvey has previously boasted about drug-taking, admitting swallowing 12 ecstasy tablets in one night.
He has failed to replicate the success he had in early-1990s boy band East 17 since attempting a solo career.
