Break­ing point

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

The Choir’s Gareth Malone has told how he de­cided to take a ca­reer break be­cause he didn’t want to “crack up”. The BBC star, who starts a UK tour on May 27, says he saw a campaign to get men talk­ing about their men­tal health just as he was feel­ing over­whelmed him­self.

Gareth, 42, says: “I took a break be­cause I felt I needed it. I saw it com­ing – if I carry on work­ing at this level I’m go­ing to stop en­joy­ing it.

“It’s such a priv­i­lege to do this sort of job. I don’t want to crack up.”

The dad of two feels great now, and says: “Tour­ing, be­ing in front of an au­di­ence, is my favourite thing to do.”
