Married At First Sight's Stephanie Posts Tearful Account Of Her Break-Up From Ben
Married At First Sight star Stephanie Saint Remy has posted a tearful account of her break-up from Ben Jardine on Instagram, and she didn't hold back.
In a series of heartbreaking Instagram stories, Steph broke her eight-month silence and answered probing questions from fans, claiming the 'bottom fell out of her world' when she realised the relationship was over.
The couple were married during the third series of the Channel 4 show which aired in February, but just a few weeks later in March they announced their split.
Steph only found out that Ben was expecting a baby with another woman last week after he exclusively revealed the news to The Sun.
Speaking on Instagram about the moment she found out her ex was to father another child, Steph, 32, said: "Ben said to me that I would make an amazing mum and if he found out the next day that I was pregnant he would be the happiest man alive.
"That memory really hurts me now, because I've been told by one of his friends since that the girl he got pregnant had conceived around this time."
The couple are currently in the middle of divorce proceedings, but were the only pair from the series to survive the show. Steph claims that the couple had discussed starting a family together before she later discovered that he had got another woman pregnant.
Steph claims she discovered Ben had cheated on her after he admitted in a radio interview back in February that he had a 'kiss and cuddle' with another woman.
Brokenhearted Steph described the moment she found out to her followers, recalling: "The bottom fell out of my world.
"I started to shake as I opened my phone and clicked on a link someone had sent. There was my husband sitting there laughing and joking about how he had cheated on me and we were getting divorced.
"I literally fell to my knees. I was shaking like a leaf and sobbing so hard that my friend started to panic. There was just too much to process.
"My friends dropped everything to be there for me and took it in turns to stay with me. I could hardly eat, and every day was spent in a daze, going between crying at what my life had become and laughing at the ridiculous situation.
"After a while anger set in and I just wanted to tell the world what really happened, but I knew that if I did, I would just be bolstering him, and he was already standing on my shoulders trying to reach for fame."
Ben entered the Big Brother house last week and has openly admitted to his fellow housemates that he did kiss another woman while he was with Steph.
