The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco has revealed the meaning behind the large moth tattoo she now has on her back to cover up a previous inking of her wedding date.

Following her wedding to Ryan Sweeting back in 2013, Kaley had her wedding date inked just below her neck, at the top of her back. The former couple then announced they were divorcing last year, and she has since had the tattoo covered up with a large moth design.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week, Kaley was quizzed about the meaning behind the moth. Ellen asked if it had some significance to her at all, but Kaley confessed she simply picked it as it was big enough to cover the numbers already there...

In short: Nope. No meaning at all.

Kaley said: "Don't tattoo wedding dates! The tattoo was a mistake, I had to cover it... with the wings. It's a moth. The significance is it was big enough to cover the numbers..."

"It's just what I picked out when I was there."

At the time, Kaley had marked her trip to the tattoo parlour by sharing a photo of herself having the inking done. She thanked her tattooist for helping her to "right her wrongs", before adding: "Note to self- do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids."

Kaley's new tattoo came just two months after she revealed she was divorcing Ryan. The US beauty and her ex-husband released a statement revealing they had "mutually decided" to split.

Opening up about her divorce to Ellen, Kaley admitted things had been "rough" for her.

She said: "I am getting divorced. Last year was very bizarre and we all go through really weird ups and downs... I already feel like 2016 is going to be a much better year than 2015. It has been rough, but I'm much better now and I'm in a much better place than I was. "

Since then, Kaley has had to continuously dismiss rumours she is dating her ex-boyfriend and co-star Johnny Galecki again.

The duo (who play married couple Leonard and Penny on Big Bang) dated for two years, before splitting back in 2009. Kaley and Johnny have continued to stay friends, however, and their close relationship often has fans speculating if they are getting back together.

Several reports had suggested Kaley had turned to Johnny following the breakdown of her marriage, with sources claiming her feelings for her co-star had never gone away. At the time, a rep for Kaley had slammed such reports as "ridiculous" and "untrue" and Kaley and Johnny have insisted their relationship is purely platonic.

Kaley told fans: "So sorry to disappoint, but no home wreckers or secret flings going on here. Me and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki are just the best of buds - Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice."

While Johnny said: "No scandals/ home wreckers/ pregnancies here, y'all. Just profound friendship. @normancook"
