In the aftermath of the scandal, Seann endured a lot of trolling with their story flashed across the front pages of newspapers, with the couple quickly splitting amid the scandal.

Speaking about how it felt to be thrust into a media storm, Rebecca told Lorraine Kelly: ‘It’s completely overwhelming. I’ve been obsessed with telly and magazines since I was about 12, and suddenly there I am in them all.

‘It felt like a bizarre stress dream I was having but the one thing I will say about that time is that all of that support was just like one validation after another.’

She added: ‘You are not crazy, you are not the things you’ve let yourself believe for years that you are… In fact, in that particular situation, you were right and all of that just flooded me. It’s a great opportunity for me to say thank you so much to everyone who was so supportive at that time.’

Lorraine, 62, went on to point out that the betrayal was all the more heartbreaking as it occurred on Rebecca’s birthday, with the actress going on to note that she’s now focusing on prioritizing her own happiness and well-being over everything else.

She said: ‘Yeah it was my birthday. It’s sort of etched in my memory, you know!’

‘Finally I’m not people pleasing, I’m not prioritizing someone’s life over my own and this idea of ​​being in love over myself I’ve learned so much about love that’s so much healthier, passion doesn’t have to be dangerous, you don’t have to give up your life to be a part of it.

‘Well the fact is if I hadn’t stayed that long then I wouldn’t have learned my lesson in the most profound way possible. Now as a result of that storm and bonfire I can really never go again.

Rebecca then went on to detail the lessons she’s learned from her split with Seann, telling the host: ‘We’ve been conditioned by pop culture to believe that love and having a partner, getting married, having children is the most important thing in our life, and when we have it we have to cling on to it at all costs.

‘Before I got into this relationship, I would have identified myself as someone who was confident, smart, sassy, ​​sexy.

‘I see it all the time, these fabulous women who dim themselves and who allow their shine and their sparkle to be taken away from them to keep these relationships alive that [are] hurting them.’

It comes after Rebecca revealed how her very public breakup came after years of emotional abuse.

Seann, 36, became embroiled in the show’s biggest-ever scandal when he was pictured kissing Katya, who was married to fellow Strictly dancer Neil Jones, during a boozy night out.

Following the incident Rebecca released an impassioned statement in which she revealed Seann called her ‘psycho’ and ‘nuts’ for questioning his friendship with Katya, whom he kissed on Rebecca’s birthday – before the photos were made public.

Other infidelities soon emerged, with Seann’s career nosediving in the years since. Meanwhile, Rebecca has landed more acting roles, most recently starring in his Prime comedy Ten Percent.

A year after she left Seann, she spoke in the House of Commons about the issue of gaslighting while she has also been working on a memoir entitled Why Did You Stay? which sees her reflect on her turbulent relationship in a bid to help others in similar situations.

‘If you’d met me [towards the end of the relationship] you wouldn’t recognize me now. I’m a completely different person,’ she told the Sunday Times about her years with Walsh.

‘Anyone who has ever been in a relationship like that will know how much it drains, how tiring it is.’

‘Being called things like [crazy] is so insidious that, before you know what’s happening, it’s actually starting to inform what you’re doing even outside the confines of the relationship.

‘You lose your keys one too many times, you’re a crazy b***h. It is a drip, drip, drip of poison. When that happens over years you start to self-identify as crazy and unhinged in a way that no longer feels glamorous and passionate.

‘It feels like you’re deteriorating and that you’re very lucky that someone loves you despite that.’
