Seann Walsh has admitted cheating on his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries was a 'form of abuse' and revealed he is 'in therapy' and has 'cut the booze' in the wake of the scandal which marked the end of their five-year relationship.

The comedian, 33, caused much controversy when he was caught kissing his married Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Katya Jones, 29, during a drunken night out in October 2018. 

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, which will air on Saturday night, Seann said he's trying to 'sort myself out' and conceded he was 'selfish and stupid' with the way he behaved towards actress Rebecca, 31, in the wake of their split.

Speaking about how he's changed in the last five months, he told show host Jonathan, 58,: 'I’m that guy, therapy and trying to sort myself out and also more recently cutting out the booze until I feel that I’ve changed and I’ve got past that.'

The stand-up comic addressed Rebecca's claims that his behaviour was tantamount to 'abuse', adding: 'I think if you lie and cheat on the person that you're meant to care for and be in a relationship with, then that is a form of abuse, of course it is.'  

He said: 'Obviously I was stupid and I was selfish and I was hurtful to someone that I cared about and someone that I respected, and I still care about and still respect. I will always be sorry about what I did.

'I think when it all blew up, I don’t think I reacted in the correct manner. I didn’t know what to do, it was huge.

'It has been some time since then, I have had a lot of time to look at my actions, look at my behaviour and take responsibility as well. 

'I think when you have gone through something like that, you end up thinking in cliches, like "If I could go back in time, I’d behave differently and treat her differently" but unfortunately all I can be is as sorry as I am and as regretful as I am.'

Revealing his regret about how the situation played out in the public eye, he added: 'The thing is, especially with how public it was, if you behave the way I did privately,
