Former EAST 17 singer Brian Harvey was rushed to hospital on Sunday (22MAY05) after falling ill at his east London home.

The troubled star, 30, was treated in a rehabilitation clinic last month (APR05) for depression, but denied press reports he had attempted suicide.

Harvey - whose girlfriend EMMA B is currently appearing in British reality TV series THE FARM, fell ill at his home in Walthamstow, with both police and the ambulance service being called to the scene.

A spokesman for London's police headquarters Scotland Yard confirms, "We were called at 3.15am to an address in E17 (postcode). An ambulance was already in attendance.

"A man who had collapsed at the address was taken to a north London hospital. Police have now left and there is no further involvement for us."
