Dancing On Ice: Jason Donovan praises wife who saved him from drug addiction

They're celebrating 20 years together today

Jason Donovan has paid tribute to the wife he credits with saving his life.

The Dancing On Ice star shot to fame in the 1980s, but his world quickly spiralled out of control.

Things took a turn in the early 1990s, after a the star became a pariah for taking legal action against a magazine for claiming he was gay.

All despite the fact he had very publicly dated pop icon Kylie Minogue.

The star previously revealed that his cocaine addiction cost him “years” of his life.

He said in his autobiography that he would have “days” of no sleep because of the drug.

In 1998, when he met his wife Angela, he confessed he had finally hit rock bottom.

When they fell in love, Angela threatened to leave him if he didn’t clean his act up.

Thankfully he listened, and the pair went on to marry a decade later.

Jason said: “Ange gave me my life back, made me see what love really was and to the day I die I will be grateful to her for that.

“Without her, who’s to say what would have become of me.”
