'I've let down my wife,' says Vernon Kay on texts

Wednesday February 10, 2010

After the revelation that he sent racy text messages to five different women, married presenter Vernon Kay has spoken of his shame.

"I'm so sorry. I've been an idiot and I've let my family down," the All Star Family Fortunes host tells the Sun.

Vernon and Strictly host Tess Daly have been married for six years and have two daughters together.

"Tess is extremely upset about this and we're working through it," he adds.

"But in some ways I'm glad this story has come out. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

"I knew it was getting silly. I'm never going to do it again and hopefully I can clear the slate clean and start again.

"I've been stupid and daft but I'm not a sex pest," he continues.

"I've only done this with four or five girls and I've known them all well - they've been friends or work colleagues."
