Newly reformed boyband Boyzone have blamed bitter arguments and alcohol for their hasty split almost ten years ago.
In their prime, the Irish group - who split in 2000 - were so exhausted from their hectic schedules, they began to hate one another, and eventually turned to alcohol to help ease their pain.
Boyzone member Shane Lynch, 31, recalls, "I found myself drinking through the day just to find some sort of happiness - but I couldn't find it. That's not a good place to be in.
"We hated it, we hated each other and we were overworked."
The fivepiece is due to kick off a series of live dates across the U.K. later this month (May08), with the sold-out tour scheduled to begin in Belfast, Northern Ireland on 25 May.
