In a preview clip from Thursday’s episode of Morgan’s show, Everett explains how he felt “no guilt” about the affair.

He says of Yates, “We were very, very close, I must say, for a long time, and she’s someone that I adored and still do.

“I think I was in love with her. I adored her.”

“How did you square off Bob in all this?” Morgan asks, to which Everett insists he “just ignored him,” admitting Geldof knew about the affair.

When asked if he felt guilty, Everett says no: “I don’t know, I think it would be for her to feel guilty, not me.”
