Burgess, nicknamed “Slammin’ Sam”, and his wife Phoebe Hook separated just a month after they welcomed their son Billy in late 2018, with his father-in-law taking out an Apprehended Violence Order against him soon after.

The 32-year-old initially pleaded not guilty to charges of intimidation and common assault and in February of this year was found guilty of intimidating his ex-wife’s father, Mitchell Hook, a decision that was later overturned by the courts in March.

During that same period Burgess as arrested for driving an unregistered vehicle and without a valid licence, after failing a roadside drug test.

“I lost my career, and my kids and my marriage,” he tells Ant Middleton during his interrogation.

“I’ve lost it all…I obviously lost respect for myself.”
