(Reuters) - Former reality TV star Josh Duggar on Thursday admitted cheating on his wife after reports that he had subscribed to the Ashley Madison affair website.

Duggar, 27, a former campaigner for family values who appeared on the TLC show "19 Kids and Counting," apologized for being "the biggest hypocrite ever" in a statement posted on his family's website.

Hackers this week dumped a batch of data stolen from the Ashley Madison website detailing millions of members. The site's tagline is "Life is short. Have an affair."
