So Solid Crew star MC Harvey has spoken about the moment he confessed to singer Alesha Dixon that he'd been cheating on her, admitting it was "the worst thing" he'd ever had to do.
The rapper, 43, was forced to admit to a relationship with singer Javine Hylton, 40, in 2006, after details of the affair leaked out.
Speaking on the Anything Goes with James English podcast the singer said: "The day I left Javine's house, it was so weird. I'd left her house and I was driving home to my marital home and as I'm two miles from my house, she (Javine) rang me and said 'she knows, she knows' as I pulled up on my drive.
"When I walked in the front room, Alesha just said to me: 'Do you want some food Harvey?' and I'm thinking 'Yeah of course I will'." Harvey said he then sat down with Alesha, 43, to watch TV – where an episode of the Tyra Banks Show about cheating was on.

He added: "She was there watching TV when she paused it and my heart sank. She said: 'How long has it been going on Harvey?' and that was it. I thought she was going to kill me. To this day, it is the worst two days I've ever spent in my house."
Harvey went on to say he received a phone call from his mum telling him to stay in the house as he "owed her that" after "breaking her heart". He added: 'It came out in the papers and everyone hated me. I was a love rat. My mental health was like 'oh my god'. I went from being in a celebrity relationship and being loved to being hated within 48 hours. But it was self-inflicted.

"When I went through the madness of it all, and I went through the Alesha stuff and then obviously when I got with Javine, the mother of my daughter, I should never have been with her. It was a toxic relationship and once I escaped from it and I got out of the whole situation, I said to my mum one time, 'mum I feel like my dad'."
Harvey added: "I'm old school, and, I love being in love, I love the family unit, but I should have learned more about myself and I should have got the s******* out of my system."
The rapper met the Britain's Got Talent judge when they were 21 and they married at 26. The marriage lasted only eight months as Alesha discovered Harvey's infidelity with West End stage co-star Javine.
