McFly star Dougie Poynter is "doing great" on his road to recovery after checking into rehab, according to his bandmate Danny Jones.
The bassist was admitted to a clinic earlier this month (Mar11) to seek help for personal issues, reportedly linked to his stressful break-up from The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford in November (10).
The group has been forced to axe the first three dates on their upcoming tour to allow Poynter extra time to rehearse after completing his rehab stint - but Jones insists his pal is "very excited" to hit the road.
Jones tells Britain's OK! TV, "He's doing great. We've sent him a lot of love and he's had lots of support. We'll see him next week and he's very excited for the tour. We wanted to rehearse and get it really good for the tour. We don't want to rush it so (the postponement) gives us that bit of extra time."
Mcfly's Above The Noise trek kicks off on 18 March (11) in Sheffield, England.
