By her own admission, Kaley Cuoco had a tough time in 2015 with the end of her two year marriage to Ryan Sweeting. This week, the star sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about the breakdown of their relationship, and how she has been coping since.

"You know, last year was very bizarre and we go all through really weird ups and downs," said 30-year-old Kaley, who is in the middle of finalising her divorce. "And sometimes I'm a little bit more seen. And everyone goes through that stuff.

"So I already feel like 2016 is going to be a much better year than 2015. And ya know, it's been rough, but things are good. I'm much, much better now. I'm in a much better place than I was."

Kaley winced as she confirmed she and Ryan were married for just a year and a half before their split. "I know. I know. I know. I had the date tattooed on my back and everything just to remind me," the Big Bang Theory star said.

"Maybe you should have put it on your front," quipped Ellen. "Yeah. I know. I know. Don't tattoo wedding dates!" Kaley replied, before explaining that she got the tattoo covered up with a new moth design.

"I had to cover it, I had to cover it with the wings," she said, as she turned around to show off her new inking at the base of her neck. Asked about the significance of the moth, Kaley joked: "Because, it was big enough to cover the numbers! Big wings… It's just what I picked out when I was there."

Meanwhile, the newly-single star sparked romance rumours last week when she was spotted leaving a Grammys party with country singer Sam Hunt. But in an interview with Extra, she dismissed the speculation. "Really not! Really not!" Kaley said. "If I walked out the stable with my horse, they would say I'm marrying my horse!"
