I'm A Celebrity's Emily Seebohm on how she caught Mitch Larkin ‘cheating’

Olympic swimming champion Emily Seebohm has opened up about her past relationship with former swimming partner and boyfriend Mitch Larkin.

The couple broke up in 2018, with Emily claiming they fell out so badly they had to hire lawyers to help them deal with the house they had bought together.

“With another swimmer?” Davina asked, to which Emily replied: “Yeah”.

“And then he denied it hardcore, hardcore denied it. I was stupid. I made it public because I posted stuff. I was so angry.”

Emily went on to say that she “saw messages” and had a “gut feeling and then I looked at his phone and it blew my mind”.

“When two people break up it’s never enjoyable for anyone,” she said in a piece-to-camera.

“I think there’s some things that I would like more privacy with but unfortunately that just wasn’t the case for that situation and it sucked.”

Davina asked Emily if she found it tough having to see him frequently, due to their close working relationship.

“Not anymore. It was. It used to make me really anxious. I'd get scared of seeing him,” she said.

Mitch Larkin has previously denied cheating on Emily, telling the Courier Mail: “I did not cheat. I absolutely did not cheat.”

Emily said she is now in a happier place saying:“For me personally, I believe going through hard things is the only way you can find things that are so good in your life.

“I’m in a much better place probably because I’ve been so open in the last couple of years. “I’ve found so much love for my family which I always have, love with my friends and love with my new partner and I get that love back from all of them.”
