He said: ‘You drink the Epsom salts first thing and then within 20 minutes, the whole of the clinic – which is full of wealthy fat people – are all rushing to the lavatory.
‘I lost a stone – we were only there six days. I was so emotional, depressed and confused and Paul was skeletal.’
Revealing more about the stay, Michael said he and Paul decided to leave early after his pal ‘nearly died’ following an incident which was ‘a bit grim and cleared them out’ during a hike.
