‘I wouldn’t be standing here before you today if it wasn’t for how committed I could see you are to this relationship. Together we have faced more challenges than anyone that’s come before us.
‘Rumours and accusations have riddled our story. Others have stepped in in our relationship. I wasn’t proud of my actions throughout the experiment.
