The rapper insists he's changed and comes clean about his bad boy past

MC Harvey became public enemy number one after he cheated on wife Alesha Dixon, 33, with Cheryl‘s Popstars: The Rivals co-star Javine Hylton in 2006.

Although he went on to have daughter Angel, 3, with Javine, 30, before their 2009 split, 32-year-old Harvey tells us that he wishes he never hurt the Britain’s Got Talent judge.

admits: I regret cheating – 110 per cent. It wasn’t a nice thing to do
and I totally hold my hands up to that. I don’t like hurting people.

‘I think Alesha
and I had too much success at too early an age. People forget that we
got together when we were 19.

‘Suddenly I was getting £250,000 cheques
when I was 21 and everyone was expecting me to be this grown-up man.

‘After what I did, I went from being the golden boy to being treated like a murderer. But it was my fault.’
