‘With divorce…that has not been discussed. We are picking our way through and however that works and it’s a work in progress. I am a work in progress. Steph is a work in progress.

‘It is not in my nature to hurt people and so I have to reconcile myself with the fact that I have done that. Indeed I have done that and I tried very hard not to.

‘I also say, is it possible to come out and not hurt your wife? No of course it isn’t. My greatest concern is that she is okay.’
