LATEST: British singer Brian Harvey has recovered from the depression that has plagued his life since his girlfriend EMMA B ended their relationship - because the model has now rekindled their romance.

The former EAST 17 star was treated in a rehabilitation centre for clinical depression in April (05) after the pin-up beauty - real name EMMA BLOCKSAGE - left him.

The following month (MAY05) Harvey was rushed to hospital after collapsing at his east London home following an alleged overdose of sleeping tablets, which his manager, SIMON HARRISON, described as a "cry for help".

And on 31 May (05), Harvey was crushed under the wheels of his own car in a near-fatal accident, but denied press reports he had attempted suicide again.

But the troubled star is now recovering at home, following seven weeks in hospital, and feels lucky to be alive now that his ex-girlfriend has returned to him.

Blocksage says, "Right now I wouldn't say he was suffering with depression.

"He feels lucky to be alive - he wants to live and be with me."
