The statement read: "I know a lot of you would have seen the news about me this week and I know I have let a lot of you down but there are always two sides to a story and mine will be told in good time.

"After months of receiving help and guidance I now know I was suffering from a mental breakdown and on that night I simply snapped.

"This is not me condoning my actions I am just trying to paint a picture of what was going on in my life at that time. All I ask from everyone is that you read the key parts of the report and not the sensationalised headline.

"I cannot apologise enough to my ex-partner for putting her through this. An eight-year relationship will now be remembered for nine minutes of madness and I will forever be sorry for it.

"I have also heard about a statement that's been released from someone that I called a friend, again I will address this and its content in due course too!

"I'm sorry for letting you all down, I do not deserve anything from anyone but just know I am sorry.
