Seann Walsh's ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries has revealed she is "glad" that pictures of him kissing his Strictly Come Dancing co-star were published as it made her realise she was "not crazy".
Actress Humphries publicly dumped the comedian in the aftermath of the controversy in which he was photographed locking lips with married Strictly dancer Katya Jones.
She released a statement on social media alleging that Walsh gaslighted her when she voiced her suspicions about his relationship with Jones and called her "psycho/nuts/mental".
Speaking to the podcast The Hotbed, Humphries has now revealed she is glad the photos were made public.
She said: "I'm glad that it happened this way, because otherwise I would never have known that I am not crazy."
Referring to her very public split, she added: "I'm glad it came out, I know I'm embroiled in this television's programme's history now, I obviously thought it would be because I went on it and won it!
"But it's just my circumstance and I can't feel bitter about it, I can't feel angry or vengeful about it, it's just how it is, really."
Humphries went on to explain that her scathing response to Walsh's actions was not about the kiss itself, but about his previous behaviour towards her throughout their relationship.
She said: "I'm not this puritanical Mary Whitehouse character who thinks that snogging someone when they're drunk is not OK under any circumstance.
"I'm absolutely not perfect and I'm also an actress and I've experienced watching these sorts of things happen in professional environments myself as well, as an observer, I should say, so I know it can happen.
"I know these things happen but I hope that it's clear that I wasn't responding to that particular incident; it was the attempt by a person to make me question myself in order to get away with doing whatever they liked."
Humphries added that she was thankful for the support she received from the public, saying: "People wanting to share their raw experiences with me, people wanting to make sure that I didn't feel alone, it's just absolutely held me up and carried me forward."
Stand-up comedian Walsh and Jones, who is married to fellow Strictly professional dancer Neil Jones, apologised after the photos of them kissing after a night out were published in The Sun newspaper.
