mitchell johnson reveals he has been suffering depression since he was a young boy

Mitchell Johnson candidly discussed his battle with depression on Monday night’s episode of SAS Australia.

The former cricketer was left noticeably panicked and upset after he froze and failed to ‘shoot the enemy’ during the earlier challenge.

During an interrogation with directing staff Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham and Ollie Ollerton, the 38-year-old explained that his lack of confidence stemmed from professional cricket no longer helping him ‘block’ his struggles with mental health.

Mitchell informed viewers of his backstory, saying: ‘In 2011 in South Africa, I just wasn’t enjoying myself. I wasn’t enjoying being a professional cricketer and, I guess, being looked at and judged all the time.

‘I just took everything personally. I was physically exhausted, and I was mentally exhausted, as well.’

During his interrogation, Mark and Ollie asked why his demeanour had entirely changed following the gruelling earlier challenge.

‘I just thought about it too much, just the lead-up of it.’

Ollie informed him: ‘It’s about making decisions when everything around you is falling apart!’

Explaining himself further, Mitchell continued: ‘I picked up the weapon and then panic set in. I struggle with confidence at times.

‘I just think I’m in that transition now where I’ve been out of playing cricket for two years. I found out I got depression. But I think the depression is something I’ve had from even a younger age’.

Mitchell bravely continued: ‘Cricket blocked things out in a way. It sort of hid the depression, but there were a lot of times where you go back to your room, you’re away from family, and you start to dwell on things.

‘Through my career, I just dealt with it. It’s just about me know, moving forward and taking it upon myself to be active with certain things and to keep my mind going’.

Mark reassured him: ‘That’s exactly what you’re doing. You’ve got to put your mind somewhere else. 

‘Take every day as it comes, and don’t be afraid to push forward and go for it’.

The Block’s Darren Jolly goes MISSING and posts worrying tribute

the blocks darren jolly goes missing and posts worrying tribute

The Block star Darren Jolly has shared a worrying social media post hours after he was due to appear in court amid his messy marriage breakdown.

The 38-year-old former Block star was scheduled to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he faces multiple charges.

However, on Monday afternoon he went missing after putting up the extremely concerning post after 7pm. 

‘I’m done, the unbearable pain of not seeing my beautiful girls for the last fourteen months is too much to cope with,’ he wrote.

Sad split: Darren Jolly claims he hasn't been in contact with his two daughters 'for months' after splitting from his wife, Deanne, in September. Pictured together on The Block

‘I am the victim of extreme parental alienation and no one in the family court system cares. No one is looking out for my girls.’

Jolly shared a photo of himself with his two daughters and lamented that he was unable to see enough of them, and the pain it caused him. 

‘Looking back through these photos broke what little I have left of my heart as it showed how much my girls loved me. 

‘Today, fourteen months after I separated from my marriage, my girls have so much hatred towards me now and have refused or scared to feel anything for me. 

‘I have been sent hate letters and texts and it’s slowly built up inside me and after holding on for so long, I have broken. I can’t go on any longer. 

‘The straw that broke me was being arrested last Friday.

‘To my parents, my family, my friends, Lucy, I love you. To my girls, I’m sorry. My love will always be in your heart. Love Dad xx.’

Darren Jolly and estranged wife Deanne are both facing serious criminal charges in the fallout of their messy break-up. 

The 38-year-old former Block star was scheduled to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he faces multiple charges. 

The matter was expected to be adjourned off along with thousands of other criminal hearings as Melbourne’s struggling court system continues to fight its way through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Daily Mail Australia can also reveal Deanne faces near identical charges to her ex, with a hearing scheduled to take place at Ringwood Magistrates’ Court on Thursday. 

 The nature of the charges cannot be published due to legal reasons. 

Darren and Deanne had announced their split in September last year after 15 years of marriage.  

Darren has made no secret of his battle with mental illness since the split. 

In February, he spoke candidly about his business troubles and the breakdown of his marriage at AFL club Collingwood’s annual general meeting. 

‘Spending three weeks in a mental facility to deal with depression. Leaving my 15-year marriage because I fell out of love and wanted a happier life,’ he said at the time. 

Darren told his former team mates his mental health became so bad around that time that he ‘almost did something stupid and ended [his] life’.

‘Everything was too much to handle and I lost control. I lost my drive to keep going, I lost my purpose in life, I lost my direction and I lost my path. I thought it was easier just to go,’ he confessed.

At the depths of his struggle, he admitted himself to hospital and described it as the ‘best thing [he] could have done’.

It was the same month Darren claimed he hadn’t been in contact with his two daughters Scarlett and Lily ‘for months’. 

‘To my daughters, I miss you like crazy and just want to hold you,’ he posted on Instagram.

The couple had been popular contestants on Channel Nine’s renovation series The Block, appearing twice in 2014 and 2015, and winning the latter season.

In a statement to the Herald Sun last year, Deanne confirmed the pair’s acrimonious split and claimed Darren had been the one who instigated it.

‘This is a very difficult time for me and my girls. We have been blindsided and left devastated by Darren’s action. But I’m focusing on my two daughters, who are my number one priority,’ she said at the time.

In another Instagram post earlier this year, Darren hinted he was going through a difficult time.

He shared a quote that read: ‘The truth always comes out in the end no matter how hard you try to hide it or stop it. Lies are just a temporary delay to the inevitable.’

'To my daughters, I miss you like crazy and just want to hold you,' he wrote. Pictured with Lily

In a post on Instagram in November, Darren claimed he had fallen into a ‘dark hole’ following his marriage breakdown.

‘To everyone who helped put me in that hole, go f**k yourself,’ he added. 

Darren had been a champion AFL footballer for Melbourne, Sydney Swans and Collingwood before becoming a reality television star. 

In the months before the couple split, he lost a staggering 16kg and underwent a complete body transformation.

The couple, who were known as ‘Daz and Dea’ on The Block, had married in 2004.

The duo’s arguments became infamous during their time on the Channel 9 series, and the pair previously opened up about their sometimes turbulent relationship in their audition tape to appear on the show.

‘Sometimes he’s a bit insensitive,’ Deanne insisted.

Darren noted: ‘She can be short… she can snap.’

Back then, Deanne remained confident that nothing ever got malicious, adding: ‘We don’t mean to say anything that’s mean’.

Despite all their hard work in the 2015 season of The Block, Darren and Deanne walked away with a profit of just $10,000.

They bounced back the following year, taking away a whopping $935,000 after they returned to take part in The Block: Triple Threat.

That sum made them the show’s biggest winners in history.

candice warner grilled about that toilet tryst with sonny bill williams on sas australia

Candice Warner was left enraged after she was grilled about her ‘toilet tryst’ with Sonny Bill Williams on Monday’s episode of SAS Australia. 

The 35-year-old wife of cricketer David Warner was pulled blindfolded into an interrogation where she was asked by ex-Special Forces soldiers Ant Middleton and Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox why she feels she is judged so harshly by the public. 

The WAG became visibly enraged as she recounted South African fans wearing masks featuring Sonny Bill’s face in an attempt to further humiliate her. 

The masks were a reference to the 2007 incident in which Candice and Sonny were photographed being intimate in a hotel toilet.

Candice told the show’s interrogators: ‘There were incidents in South Africa where people were trying to make fun of me, mock me, belittle me in front of my family because of an incident that happened in the past. And that they think that’s funny.’

Asked to elaborate on the fling with Sonny, Candice snapped: ‘It was just a bad mistake. I don’t want to talk about it.’ 

She was slightly more open during an on-camera interview prior to the interrogation, saying of the toilet tryst: ‘In my early 20s I made a very big mistake. It is something I am not proud of but something I can never take back.

‘I put myself in a situation where I shouldn’t have and because of that I brought embarrassment, shame to my family.’

In the interrogation, Candice at times shook with rage as she complained that she felt her family were unfairly judged.   

‘Too many people are very quick to make judgement on myself and my family. I haven’t done anything.

‘They are ill informed from some media that don’t know the entire truth about us. They call us bad people, bad parents. The hardest thing for me was being told I was a really bad mother’.   

The retired professional ironwoman admitted she is often angry and defensive, and feels she must put on an aggressive ‘front’ due to the perceived ill treatment. 

‘I am always on the defensive. People question my integrity. They used to think I was a bit of a joke. I’ve come on here to show people what myself and my family are made of. 

‘And I think I have been through a fair but. And I am still here and I am still fighting. I still have my husband’a back and for me family is all that matters.’

She was more open during an on-camera interview prior to the interrogation, saying of the toilet tryst: 'In my early 20s I made a very big mistake.

She was also questioned about the 2018 ball tampering scandal in which her husband David was implicated – and Candice denied he’d done anything wrong.   

‘When we came home from south Africa in 2018 when there was an incident with the Australian cricket team, there was a ball tampering incident,’ she began. 

The interrogator asked: ‘He tampered the ball? Or supposedly tampered the ball?’

Candice snapped: ‘No. That’s other people’s opinion. He’s never said he’s part [of it].’

In the lead-up to the Cricket Australia ball tampering scandal in 2018, Candice was taunted by South African fans for her brief sexual encounter. 

South African player Quinton de Kock was fined for allegedly provoking David with a sledge regarding Sonny and his wife, while South African fans wore masks featuring Williams’ face. 

Cricket South Africa was forced to apologise after two officials posed for a photograph with fans wearing the masks.

‘The miscarriage was a tragic consequence, a heartbreaking end to a horror tour,’ she added.  

The mother-of-three also reflected on the scandal that made her a tabloid fixture for years – extending an apology to Sonny Bill and his family.

‘I finally received a weak apology from Cricket South Africa [for the fan taunts]. I realised they’re the ones to feel ashamed, not me,’ she told the magazine.   

‘I’d like to extend that apology to Sonny Bill. He’s a husband and father, so imagine how his wife would feel and his kids.’

Sonny Bill married Alana Raffie in 2013 and they share four children, daughters Imaan, Aisha and sons Zaid and Essa.
