Dappy says he is not a "vile monster"
Dappy reckons a lot of people have in the past have unfairly made him out to be a "vile monster".
The 'No Regrets' man finished runner-up on Celebrity Big Brother this week and it seems a lot of viewers have warmed to him.
However, he came into the show with something of a negative reputation having one year earlier been given a suspended sentence for assault.
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on ITV, Dappy stated that some people in the media have historically tried to unfairly tarnish his name. He said:
"I didn't think I'd get that far because going in there a lot of people had a misperception of me and certain groups of the media painted me out to be some sort of vile monster. I'm hard-bodied on the outside but I've got a sensitive side too, everybody's got a heart, it beats. I've got a family that love me at home and that's what I think people didn't really understand."
