At the time, he said in a statement: “I have absolutely no memory of what happened because of excessive alcohol consumption and it was for this reason that I behaved completely out of character.

“However, I take full responsibility for my actions that night.”

Gareth previously starred in The Archers, where he played Gavin Moss.
