The actor discussed how fans reacted to her inner 'Wonder Woman' after releasing a statement declaring she'd left Seann and taken their cat.

Rebecca Humphries has opened up on the "revelatory few weeks" that followed her split from comedian Seann Walsh, 32, after his kiss with Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya Jones, 29.

In an open letter published to Vogue, Rebecca revealed: "On October 8, I had an aim: to present a more fully formed and accurate version of a woman than the neater, simple character of 'spurned partner' that was already being run with.

"The woman whose truth I was standing up for was myself. In doing so came revelation number one; that of a strength and resoluteness I had forgotten I possessed...

"But perhaps the biggest shock (no mean feat), has been of the thousands of people who recognised the Wonder Woman behind that statement was at the same time standing in the ruins of a shattered reality - and their rush to offer humour, perspective and life-force to help rebuild it."

Rebecca went on to reveal how in the moments her statement went viral on social media, a friend played empowering anthem 'I'm Every Woman' and thrust a glass of wine in her hands.

After her statement revealed that Rebecca had moved out of their home and taken the cat, fans had sent her framed prints of quotes lifted from the statement, including one that read: "I took the cat."

Rebecca's statement concluded by her thanking fans for their unwavering support in the wake of the kiss scandal.

She put: "Thank you everyone for your kindness. It has gifted me the tools to sweep up the shattered bits and rebuild myself - but better. This time round I shall be diamond studded with self worth."
