Blackadder comedian Rowan Atkinson is being treated for depression following the critical failure of his latest film Johnny English.

The 48-year-old MR BEAN star was reportedly upset following bad reviews for the spy caper, and decided to check himself into the $6,000 (GBP3,500) per week COTTONWOOD DE TUCSON clinic in Arizona, America.

Rowan - who told wife SUNETRA he needed to "find himself" - spent five weeks recuperating at the celebrity clinic.

Despite the critical mauling, Johnny English was the fifth highest grossing film of the year (03) in his native Britain.
