Former Australian Idol winner, Stan Walker, has released the first trailer for an upcoming documentary feature following his serious health issues and the emotional impact it’s had on him and his family.
The first clip for Stan shows the 27-year-old struggling with an unidentified illness which will see him undergo a complicated operation.
“They're all expecting me to get up and walk around, but I'm scared,” he admits before later asking “what if there's complication and I die?”
Stan’s gaunt appearance has been a talking point amongst concerned fans in recent months, and this is the musician’s way of opening up about what’s been going on, as well as drawing attention to the illness.
Stan’s mother also features in the clip, with an emphasis on how hard this has all been for her.
“It's been hard for my mum, she cries every day and she blames herself too,” Stan explains.

The documentary will be airing tonight on New Zealand television and is coming soon to Australian screens.
