In an interview with British newspaper The Times, Johnson said: "At the end of 1989, I was already showing signs of ill health. I had to pull out of a major German TV show with some mysterious flu. Did I have an inkling? Oh God, yeah. But I thought that if I didn't talk about it, it would go away. I was nearly in the grave. Well, Holly Johnson was at death's door between 1991 and 1996."
