Dan Osborne 'disgusted' with himself

Dan Osborne is "disgusted" with himself over the tapes in which he's heard threatening to stab his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin.

The 23-year-old star has spoken out for the first time after recordings of him threatening his ex-girlfriend, with whom he has 17-month-old son Teddy, emerged earlier this year, to claim he was "pushed" over the edge.

He said: "I'm disgusted with myself. I said the worst things you could ever say to a person, but it was in the heat of the moment during an argument and I didn't mean any of it.

"I'd never hurt anyone and I'd never hit a woman. I want people to understand I'm not an angry person. The day I reacted like that was after two years of being pushed and pushed and pushed. I wish I could turn back time and deal with things differently."

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star - who was sacked from the ITVBe show after the tapes were made public - claims he said the things he did because he was made to believe Megan was trying to stop him from seeing his son.

Dan - who also has daughter Ella with girlfriend Jacqueline Jossa - told Now! magazine: "There were things said that implied someone else would bring my son up. I never wanted that. That's why I said the most stupid and embarrassing things, like, 'You can never be with another man'. I never meant that. I just didn't want someone else bringing up my son. It was the scariest thing in the world."
