East 17 singer Brian Harvey sparks concern as he claims he’s been ‘held prisoner’ in his own home for five years in worrying video

In the clip, the troubled singer, 43, tells fans he is "going to war" against those who have allegedly made him a "prisoner in his own home".

The 18-minute speech sees Brian, who was diagnosed with clinical depression in 2005, also claim he is a clone and express fears for his own safety.

Brian says: "I've been a prisoner in my own home now for about five years. Four to five years.

"I've got to be trapped, like a prisoner, in my own home after selling 22million records. I've never done nothing to no one. I just chose not to get involved."

He tells fans to "open your eyes and wake up" before vowing to "go to war" on his tormentors.

Speaking to the unnamed threat, he says he is going to launch legal action and a crowd fund campaign.

The dad-of-one says: "I'm waiting for you to turn up at my house police, I'm waiting for you.

"And don't think I ain't got clones cos I have and we are going to f*****g war."

Holding up a bible, Brian says: "You are not going to win it? Because you ain't got God on your side."

The troubled singer was arrested last year for allegedly sending malicious tweets.

Harvey sold 18 million records had a string of top ten hits as lead singer of East 17, including It's Alright which reached No3 in the charts in 1993.

But he was sacked from the band in 1997 over comments appearing to condone the use of ecstasy in the wake of the death of teen Leah Betts.

He appeared in the I'm A Celebrity jungle in 2004 but quit after a row with Janet Street-Porter.

The following year he famously almost died when he fell under the wheels of his Mercedes after gorging himself on jacket potatoes.
