It's been a rocky year for former TOWIE star Dan Osborne, who became the subject of a police investigation last year when audio recordings of him verbally abusing his ex went public.
In the tapes, Dan can be heard threatening to stab Megan Tomlin – the mother of his toddler son Teddy – if she moves on with someone else. The recordings came to light when Jacqueline was two months pregnant with the couple's daughter, Ella, and she says it was extremely hard for her to deal with at the time.
"I've listened to the tapes, I was completely shocked by what I heard," the 22-year-old told OK! magazine. "I thought it was disgusting but it's something that we've worked out – he's been punished enough."
Speaking about the aftermath of the incident, Dan says he was thankful his now-fiancée listened to him and was willing to move on. "The things that came out of my mouth were really stupid but they were said in the heat of the moment because I was scared of not being able to see my son,” Dan said.
"If I was any kind of monster or wasn’t remorseful for what I said, then there’s no way Jacqui would still be with me."
Eastenders actress Jacqueline says she may never fully accept what Dan did but she has come to a better understanding of the situation now. "I don't think I'll ever forgive him for what he said. But at least I understand his reasons why," she explained. "Daniel and I are a family now, so it didn’t cross my mind to end the relationship."
We're glad to see they have been working hard to repair the damage of the last year.
