    Roman Kemp insists men shouldn't be afraid to talk about their mental health

    The 28-year-old star has spoken openly about his personal struggles since his pal Joe Lyons took his own life last summer, and Roman - who explored the issue of mental health in the BBC documentary 'Our Silent Emergency' - has encouraged other men to follow suit


    He said: "I selfishly made that documentary for me because I felt like it would give me access to the people who I knew I wanted to go and speak to, to help myself.

    "But what shocked me the most was people going, ‘Oh my God, you took an antidepressant on TV’ - that was the last thing I was worried about.

    "In the same way geezers drink protein shakes and they go to the gym to make their bodies bigger, I have to take them to make my brain better. I have no shame about that."

    Roman attends therapy to help manage his mental health, and he admits that it makes him feel more "stable".

    He told The Sun newspaper: "I go to therapy all the time. It’s so important not to think that doing that means you’ve failed - that’s so messed up because it’s the opposite.

    "Going there makes me mentally more stable than people that don’t. I’m trying to make it better."

    Meanwhile, Roman split from his ex-girlfriend Anne-Sophie Flury last year, and he's confessed that finding love has proven to be a challenge.

    He shared: "I find dating apps quite tough. I got banned from Hinge because people said it was a fake profile.

    "How am I meant to meet people? You go to a bar, you get agg. You don’t want that. You want to get to speak to someone first.

    "But I’ll be totally honest, I don’t like chatting to someone a long time online before meeting them. I find that very odd. If I like that person then I’ll probably want to meet up with them for a drink."
