Demi Lovato hopes that her new documentary will help her fans through their "deepest, darkest struggles".

The 28 year old released the trailer for her new documentary last week, revealing she was still suffering with brain damage following a near-fatal overdose.

Skyscraper singer Demi had three strokes and a heart attack in 2018 after the overdose, which left her "five to 10 minutes" away from death.

She has now discussed the documentary, named Dancing With The Devil, in a conversation with Ellen DeGeneres on her hit chat show.

Demi told 63 year old Ellen: "I talk about a lot. The world has been so loving and accepting of me telling my story and just, there's been so much love and support.

"What's great is we live in a time when nobody's perfect, and we're not gonna get role models by watching people not make mistakes.

"We are going to meet and learn from our role models who have overcome their deepest darkest struggles. I wanted to show everyone — first I wanted to set the record straight.

"I just wanted to tell the world, 'Hey, this is what happened, this is how I got through it, and hopefully this can help you too'.
