"Dougie was dancing for ages with this really gorgeous brunette," the insider revealed.
The success track numbers of the pop group Mc Fly is attributable to the efforts of him and the band members.
"Their work commitments have meant they have been spending more and more time away from each other and it has made it difficult to maintain their relationship.
They’ve decided to have a temporary break to see if they can work things out.
The Mc Fly star admitted he was embarrassed at first about needing to seek treatment for alcohol addiction as he worried it made him a ''cliche'' but is now celebrating eight years of sobriety and could not be happier.
He told The Sun Online: ''I've been sober for almost eight years. You're a bit of a prisoner.''The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome and that's pretty much what I was doing.''There were so many things that I wanted to do but I couldn't do because I was trapped by addiction.
