Rutherglen Reformer - - Road Watch -

Ruther­glen co­me­dian Scott Agnew re­vealed he was bat­tling de­pres­sion.

In a brave in­ter­view, Scott said he had been di­ag­nosed with bipo­lar dis­or­der af­ter years of men­tal health is­sues. He had prob­lems with drugs, drink and sex, as well as thoughts of com­mit­ting sui­cide.

Scott was set to use his ex­pe­ri­ences as the ba­sis for a new show at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe.

He said:“My great­est fear is some­one blind­sid­ing me with some­thing so if you’re the one throw­ing mud at your­self then it won’t stick.”
