The Herald still has this up:
That all changed when The Voice premiered on RTE1 in January 2012. All of a sudden, Bressie lost his anonymity. It took its toll.
"I think it was coming anyway, but I started suffering badly from anxiety," he says.
"I'm quite open about it, and I definitely don't blame the show on it. By chance, it happened at the same time as the show kicked off."
Indeed, there was a moment during the show's first season when Bressie felt he was about to have a panic attack on live television. "I'd never had that in my life," he recalls. "I didn't know what they were."
"If you're in the public eye," he continues, "and you suffer from anything like depression or anxiety, you really have a responsibility to make people aware of it. Because I'm 31, and I found it hard to deal with. Could you imagine being 13 and trying to figure out what the f***'s going on?"
