“When I was in Sydney, I met this girl on Instagram and messaged her because we had mutual friends.

"I booked this cinema in the park with a double bed, bottle of champagne and we watched A Star Is Born-best first date ever.”

However, upon hearing this Stevie-Leigh was shocked as she was living with him at the time.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: “I never thought he had cheated on me but from some of the stuff he has said it appears that he did.

“It’s such a massive shock. He told me he was going to see A Star is Born with two male friends - I had no reason to suspect him.

“To find out like that it was another girl is awful. He seems to be saying all sorts. I didn’t know he had slept with 100 girls.”
