Broadcaster Niall Boylan has revealed for the first time how he seriously considered taking his own life after his marriage collapsed last year.
“For about four months, I was so depressed. There was one night I genuinely felt like there was no way out,” he has said in an exclusive interview with Hot Press magazine.
In the startlingly honest interview with the magazine’s senior editor Jason O’Toole, Boylan talks about everything from finding love again after his marriage break-up and his battle with alopecia to taking drugs in his wild youth.

He said she had started to talk about it but, "I didn’t push her because it was upsetting her".
