Ben’s back into re­hab

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Halina Watts SHOW­BIZ EDI­TOR

HOLLYWOOD star Ben Af­fleck has checked back into re­hab as he con­tin­ues to fight his drink de­mons.

The 46-year-old has told friends he is de­ter­mined to stay sober for his chil­dren and be­lieves he has sev­eral more months of treat­ment at his ad­dic­tion clinic.

A source close to the Bat­man star said: “He was go­ing to move out and be an out­pa­tient, but he’s checked back in. He’ll stay most nights at the clinic.”

It emerged last week that Ben had fi­nalised his di­vorce from Jen­nifer Gar­ner, also 46, who is the mother of his three kids.

The pair are still close and she is sup­port­ing him through his treat­ment.

But Ben is be­lieved to have cooled his re­la­tion­ship with Play­boy model Shauna Sexton, 22.

Our source said: “He will al­ways be con­tin­u­ing to work hard to get bet­ter.

“This is not a dis­ease you cure in one go. He wants to work, see his kids and fo­cus on his re­cov­ery.”

FOR­MER fe­male test crick­eter Eileen Ash has had a sports hall at Hewett Academy School in Nor­wich named af­ter her to mark turn­ing 107.
