'I've been an idiot:' Ex-boxer Ricky Hatton enters rehab

Monday September 13, 2010

Former world champion boxer, Ricky Hatton is checking into rehab at the end of this week, after admitting to a year-long personal struggle with drugs.

Ricky was filmed two weeks ago by concerned friend and fellow boxer, Emma Bowe, allegedly taking cocaine.

Since the incident, the 31-year-old has been described as "devastated and distraught", and is keen to face his problems.

In an emotional heart-to-heart with his fiancée Jennifer Dooley, the ex-boxer reportedly said: "I've been an idiot and I'm so sorry and ashamed. I need and want to sort myself out."
