Megan Tomlin has talked about her relationship with TOWIE's Dan Osborne for the first time...

Dan Osborne‘s ex girlfriend Megan Tomlin, mum to his 15-month-old son Teddy, has spoken out for the first time about their relationship following two leaked tapes in which the TOWIE star lost his temper.

‘I wasn’t until I first reported Daniel to the police in September last year that I realized his controlling and abusive behaviour was part of a pattern and there were warning signs I could have watched out for,’ teacher Megan, 23, says.

‘What I initially took to be concern for me very soon turned into controlling behaviour,’ she adds.

Last week, a tape was leaked in which Dan, 24, can be overheard saying: ‘I swear on this boy’s life I will end your f****** life if you shag another man. Never in your f****** life are you going to be with another man. I can swear on my son’s life.’

And Megan tells Dan: ‘Ow, get off me! Get out of the house now! You’re horrible.’

Dan insists he’s never been violent to a woman and has tweeted to defend the claims, saying: ‘Wasn’t and never have been violent towards any woman’.
He also said: ‘You don’t know me, my family etc know the truth. Sorry that a story is being made by something from about 8 months ago #boringnow.
“[It] was never about anyone other than the love I felt for my son. We live and learn. It’s the past and bored of reading about it.’

Last week Dan tweeted his joy at spending time with his son Teddy, saying: ‘Waking up to my little man!! Sooo happy I now have this every single week.’

Dan has take time out from filming TOWIE to be with girlfriend Jacqueline Jossa, 22, and their six-week-old daughter Ella.

The couple have put on a united front with Jacqueline even telling one Twitter follower: ‘my relationship is lovely thanks. You know nothing.’
