His platinum hit 'Read All About It' and songs such as 'Goodnight' have given fans a glimpse into this tragic story. But now for the first time Stephen discovers what really happened to his Dad. Opening up to close family for the first time about his estrangement from his father, re-connecting with old relatives, meeting others affected by suicide and laying bare his own demons, Stephen faces tough answers.
Through this personal journey, Stephen explores the wider scourge of male suicide in the UK. As the biggest single killer of men under 45, latest figures show suicide accounts for nearly 5000 male deaths a year in the UK.
