Nev Schulman, the main man of MTV's hit programme Catfish: The TV show, is trying to move on after he was wrongly accused of sexual misconduct.
Pending investigations halted production of the TV show in June, after a woman who previously starred in the show accused the host of making inappropriate and sexual comments to her whilst filming.
MTV has now said those claims were not "credible and are without merit".
Nev spoke to PEOPLE about how he's trying to get on with life after the ordeal.
“I’m doing much better now…It was a really difficult time for me, as much for my wife and my family. It was tough.”
The presenter continued to explain how he strives to live an honest, good life which means taking responsibility for his actions.
“I’ve lived a number of different lives in my 33 years. I’ve experienced different things, I’ve been in different social circles and I’ve made mistakes. I’ve been very honest about those and I’ve been accountable, I’ve apologised and done everything I could to make right where I may have wronged.
I’ve been judged for those mistakes — publicly and privately. That’s tough and doesn’t feel good but it’s important and something I’ve made part of my life,” he explained.
During the time the allegations were being looked into, the 33-year-old detailed just how difficult it was, but he always had endless support to help him through.
“To be accused of something that I squarely did not do and to have the harsh judgment that followed and no way to counteract or do something in the moment to correct that was very difficult,” he replies.
“It was frustrating. I just felt so powerless.”
“Luckily I had the amazing support of the fans of the show but also of my colleagues, the crew…Several people who had been on the show actually reached out to me and offered to speak up in my support if necessary. I’m just so thankful and grateful to everyone.”
In May, Nev denied the allegations of sexual misconduct by a woman he has chosen not to name, but who did appear on the show.
In a statement to PEOPLE, the host said:
“The behaviour described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth."
“I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.”
Catfish will be returning to our TV screens tonight for a 7th series.
We for one will definitely be tuning in – the withdrawal has been real.
