"It's a tricky situation," the Queensland father admitted on Wednesday's episode of Talking Married. "I've definitely gone about things the wrong way, behind Tam's back. It's something that goes against who I am [but] I was following my heart."
The "tricky situation" includes saucy text exchanges and steamy hookups with Mick Gould's wife Jess, which fans expected to be exposed during this week's dinner party.
"When Cyrell came storming in, I was just like, 'she's found out'," Dan recalled of the moment he thought they'd been caught. "So, when I heard her coming through the doors, the heart started bouncing, and I'm like, 'alright, I gotta face the music here.'"
So why did the reality playboy remain tight-lipped? Blame it on the booze!
"I didn't feel like it was the right time. I was a bit intoxicated as were a few people there, so it might've gotten a bit out of hand,' Dan insisted to the show's hosts.
As for his wife Tamara, Dan admitted he regretted not giving her the "respect and attention" she deserved. "I was nervous the whole time doing it [cheating]."
