DANNY Dyer has opened up about the drink and crack binges that left him feeling like he would die – days after his daughter’s boyfriend Jack Fincham told The Sun he took cocaine.

The 41-year-old EastEnders star said in an interview that he smoked the deadly drug during his 20s, admitting: “I was in such a dark place, I was slowly committing suicide.”

He told the i newspaper: “I had no hope, I hated myself, couldn’t look in the mirror for more than five seconds. It just repulsed me, what was looking back.

“I was just pressing the ‘f*** it’ button all the time. It got to a point where I thought I was going to die – I don’t think I’m going to wake up.”

Jack, 26, admitted earlier this week that he had binged on cocaine after giving into regular offers of drug-taking that TV fame had brought his way.

His girlfriend – and Danny’s daughter – Dani has warned him never to take it again after he told her what he’d been up to.

He said he dreaded telling Danny, adding: “I’m sure most dads would take a dim view of it. I’ve made a mistake and I’m sorry for it and that’s the truth.

“But I went out all night, I was drinking and I just got carried away and made a stupid, stupid mistake which I wish I’d never done, you know. I regret it.”

Speaking in today’s interview, Danny told how he was on stage in New York in 2001 after a night taking crack.

He admitted: “I was abusing myself so much, my brain wasn’t ready and I didn’t have a clue what to say.

“The blood rushed from my feet to my head and I was petrified. I felt so vulnerable. Never really been the same since.”

He added: “It’s like a boxer who wins 27 fights and no-one gets near him and then they get knocked out and they’re never the same again.”
