BRITAIN’S Got Talent warm-up act Ian Royce has entered The Priory today to help him beat his alcohol addiction.

Ian will now complete a 28-day programme at the rehab facility.

He tweeted: “To rehab I do go… Thank you so much to everyone for your help…

“Pucker up @PrioryGroup  I’m on my way.”

Earlier this week, Ian recorded a video thanking fans for their support as well as his celeb backers.

The short clip sees him saying he “surrenders” to pretending everything is fine, adding: “It’s OK to not be OK.”

The BGT hype man previously sent a touching message to his famous colleagues after they chipped in to pay for his treatment.

He tweeted: “I am so grateful to so many for saving my life….. Thank you so much everyone and my amazing girlfriend xx @SimonCowell @antanddec @robbiewilliams @ollyofficial thank you for a light…..”

Former BGT act Steve Hewlett replied: “Job Title…Warm Up Man & Support to The Stars Support is what you have Ian. In 2013 after my BGT final act as soon as I walked off stage to the incredible audience reaction… you were there with a man hug and congrats! I’ll never forget that. I’m just one here for you now”

We reported that Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly have donated £5,000 to help pay for Ian’s rehab stint.

The 50-year-old has recently admitted he is battling alcoholism and a friend created a GoFundMe page to raise £20,000 so he can check into rehab facility The Priory to get help.

In a video, Ian, who has admitted considering taking his own life in the fundraising bio, said: “Please, please, please give me some hope.”

I’m a Celeb stars Ant, 43, and Dec, 44, were more than happy to show their support to their BGT colleague, each donating £2,500 to his fund.

Their donations came after it was revealed X Factor and BGT head judge Simon Cowell will also be helping Ian, nicknamed Roycey.

Meanwhile The Mirror added that Robbie Williams, 45, who was a judge on The X Factor last year, said: “Mate, I’m happy to pay for your rehab, consider it done. We are all rooting for you.”

Fellow singer Olly Murs, who was runner up on The X Factor in 2009, also pledged £2,000 to the GoFundMe page writing: “Roycey, stay strong, my friend.”

Coronation Street’s Kym Marsh was another famous face to back Ian, saying: “Ian, I am sending you so much love. I can’t wait to see you back.

“You are loved by so many people. Keep on keeping on.”

Meanwhile Olly Murs has donated £2,000 towards Ian’s fund

After receiving the donations, which have totalled £12,165 so far, Ian said: “I have a lot of s*** to get rid of in my head.

“Happy now thanks to Robbie and all the people that have donated. I have a light, I have hope.”

Ian is hoping to take part in The Priory’s 28-day programme, but he will also need additional treatment for a brain aneurysm he suffered while drunk.
