The GOLDEN TOUCH singer sought medical help after touring and living it up - but was so unimpressed by the treatment he received he checked out after removing the syringe from his own arm.
Borrell says, "The day after the tour I got this pain in my chest. It felt like my stomach was bleeding from the inside out.
"I went to A+E (accident and emergency) and they gave me a blood test but didn't bother analysing the blood, they just left me there with a syringe in my arm.
"I thought, 'F**k this', she was so c**p at putting it in, a f**king child could have done it better. I could've done it better when I was 19, put it that way.
"So I ended up pulling it out and walking out and I had a week off.
"It was slightly unexplained. Too many downers and champagne, I think it was, when you split the lining of your stomach.
"You know what Kurt Cobain did in Rome? I was determined not to take drugs but then I was taking a lot of Valium and prescription drugs and then I started getting a bit clever with it and taking way too many drugs without actually taking any drugs."04/01/2005 08:59
