He and Alisha, who play lovers in the drama, were drinking at a bar during a break in filming last month in New Orleans.

On Wednesday, Justin apologised to his wife and family in a statement on Instagram, admitting he had drunk “way too much” but insisted “nothing happened” between him and his co-star.

“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my costar,” he wrote.

“I drank way too much that night and I regret my behaviour. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son.”

He added: “I apologise to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be.

“This was not that.”

Justin and Jessica tied the knot in October 2012 and have a four-year-old son Silas together.
