After being tormented by aliens, Tom Fletcher of Strictly Come Dancing was left “paralyzed with fear.”
McFly vocalist Tom Fletcher, who is now competing in the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing, has spoken up about his contact with aliens in an exclusive interview.
Tom Fletcher, the star of Strictly Come Dancing, has been stalked by aliens his entire life.
Little green men left the McFly singer “paralyzed with fear,” and he could only sleep if the TV was on.
“One of the first things I remember is the aliens that have tormented me my entire life,” Tom, 36, added. My father was the one who first introduced us. He used to tell me stories about them when I was younger.
“One story in particular stands out in my mind: of travelers staying in a log cabin overnight, only to discover an alien had been watching them for hours after its face vanished from the moonlit window.
“That narrative implanted in my mind an extraterrestrial that would never leave.”
Tom stated that he was afraid of being visited while on tour with his band.
“Even as an adult traversing the world, I’d constantly return to my hotel room and lie there scared of the alien at the window,” he explained.
“I’d sleep with the TV on, the volume turned down, and the bathroom door open, even after performing in front of hundreds of thousands of people.”
Tom claimed that when he was concerned about his mental health in 2010, he went to see doctors and told them about his alien anxieties.
“My despair peaked over Christmas,” he remarked.
My spirits were as low as they’d ever been. And, while I knew I didn’t want to be like this, there seemed to be no way for me to get out of it.
“I went to see my doctor and attempted to explain what was going on in my thoughts as best I could. He didn’t hesitate to recommend me to one of the Priory’s doctors.
“I’d be seen by two doctors during the next few months.” One of them diagnosed me with bipolar disorder, whereas the other did not.
“Whatever the case may be, when the symptoms of bipolar disorder were read to me, it was as if a light went off in my head.”
“During manic episodes, anything appears to be possible. Depressions are times when nothing seems to be meaningful. That was my existence.” Tom claimed he was too terrified of night terrors to wake his wife Giovanna, the I’m A Celebrity winner from last year.
“The doctor asked if I had difficulties sleeping, and I told him I didn’t,” he continued.
