She then spent the holiday season in treatment, and has been spending the last year openly discussing her ongoing recovery.

Revisiting the Timberline Knolls centre in Illinois, she said: "We got to watch the countdown on New Year's Eve in here, and by the time it hit one, I just started sobbing like, 'I can't believe I'm bringing in the New Year in rehab."

The 'Skyscraper' singer's story is told in one-off documentary Stay Strong, due to air in the US on MTV tonight (March 6).

She says: "The first time that I walked into Timberline Knolls, I sat there to eat my first meal, and it was chicken, rice, vegetables and milk, and I took like two or three bites of the chicken and was like 'OK, I'm done'.

"That's when I realised maybe I do belong here because I can't finish a meal."

Demi releases her third album Unbroken in the UK on April 2.
