Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Dan Osborne opens up on ‘toxic relationship’ with his ex

Dan Osborne has opened up about his ‘media storm’ in the Celebrity Big Brother house.


The former TOWIE star is one of thirteen housemates in this year’s ‘Eye Of The Storm’ themed series.

Dan hit the headlines in 2015 over allegations made by his ex – including tape recordings – about their relationship.

Before entering the show, Dan said: “It’s no secret that I’ve been through a storm in the media – the recordings of an argument that I had in a previous relationship, but if anything it’s made me a better person now.”

In tonight’s show, Dan opened up to Sally about the media frenzy.

He recalled: “My ex who I had my little boy with, our relationship was just like a toxic relationship, we were young.


“It was a horrible relationship. We pushed each others buttons and stuff. And I got angry just like everyone does and just said stupid things. And I was being recorded. And it went into The Sun and absolutely everywhere.

“I mean I said stupid things. I take full responsibility for it. And you learn from your mistakes. I was young and you say things when you’re angry.”

Dan continued: “Obviously I never meant one word of it and it’s horrible, it’s embarrassing now even. I hate it. I hate the fact I even done that. If I could turn the clock back I would.”

He explained how the tapes and fallout led to him getting sacked from The Only Way Is Essex.

“I got sacked, I lost that job straight away and it was just gone,” he explained.

Dan also discussed the following court battle to see his son.

“I was in a bad, bad place back then. Really bad. Depression and everything,” the reality star added.
