Former Cronulla Sharks winger and The NRL Footy Show funnyman Beau Ryan, took leave from Channel Nine after it emerged last month that he had cheated on his wife Kara with model and singer Lauren Brant.
He has now spoken for the first time since the incident was revealed, saying that he has been addressing personal issues as he prepares to return to his starring role on The Footy Show.
‘I’m very much looking forward to getting back to work on Thursday with the rest of the guys,’ he told the Daily Telegraph. ‘I’ve been away addressing some personal issues.’
He has spent the past few weeks on a family holiday to the U.S. with his childhood sweetheart Kara and two-year-old daughter Remi.
There have been rumours Beau and his wife will appear on A Current Affair, although a Nine Network spokesperson denied those suggestions. It has not been confirmed or denied whether or not he will address the situation on his return to the show on Thursday night.
