Speaking to Coleen Nolan, US reality hunk Austin Armacost has admitted that he has an issue with drink, although he doesn’t believe he is an alcoholic. The admission comes after Austin’s fiery few days where he has been embroiled in arguments with dancer James Jordan and singer Stacy Francis.

During an argument, James told Austin that he became a c**t when he drinks.

Speaking directly with Coleen Austin said,

“I can definitely say that I have an issue with drinking. I don’t think I’m an alcoholic…I hardly ever drink when I’m at home!”

Coleen, who is famed for her sage advice on Loose Women said,

 “I think you’re using it as self-medication in here. Even when you have a drink, there’s a really fun lovely part of you! It’s just when you have one that takes you over the line…”

Later, Austin makes amends with Stacy Francis saying,

“Can I just say, no drama, Stacy I do not dislike you at all! I’m really liking you!”
