Harry Judd feels proud to have inspired people to speak openly about their own experiences of anxiety.

The 31-year-old musician has previously admitted to struggling with anxiety during his music career, and Harry's candidness has been well received by his fans on social media.

Harry - who stars in McFly alongside Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones - shared: ''I've just been sat looking through Facebook and Twitter and all these people have reached out to me and said, 'Thank you for talking about it.'

''I had a message from a girl who said she's suffered from anxiety for ten years and she's never spoken to anyone, and having seen me talk about it she's going to speak to someone. That's a win.''

Harry discusses his battle with anxiety in his new book, 'Get Fit, Get Happy'.

But the musician has insisted he's not nervous ahead of the book's release, because he's made a conscious decision to lead a stress-free life.

Harry told new! magazine: ''I try not to have any stress in my life. The book actually talks about anxiety that I've suffered.''

This comes shortly after Harry suggested his drug use contributed to his bouts of anxiety.

The musician experimented with marijuana when he was at boarding school and he continued to use the drug into his late teens and 20s.

The 'All About You' hitmaker recently said: ''I had a very happy childhood, I can't for one minute complain. Very, very happy. I joined the band and when I was 17 and I was a confident guy, and everything was great.

''But it was when I was about 19 when things started to turn for me and I did start to suffer with anxiety.''
