Troubled Take That star Mark Owen is due to leave rehab in April, his friends have disclosed.
The 38-year-old checked himself into a private clinic earlier this month, following his confession of alcoholism and infidelity.
The father-of-two is said to be responding well to treatment and friends now believe he will be returning home to wife Emma very soon.
"Initially, everyone thought he might be in the clinic for months but Mark has been responding really well to treatment," a friends tells the Daily Mail.
"As a result, it has been decided he will leave the clinic next month."
"Mark knows that when he comes out he has to try and persuade Emma to give him another chance. That is what he is preparing himself for now - because no decision has been made on their marriage so far."
