She said at the time: “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.

“He was divorcing me. He had cheated on me. He was announcing it on the radio. There are very few moments in your life that truly rock you to your core. Where you feel like this moment cannot be real. Because if it is, then your whole life is about to change.”

Despite originally denying it, Ben eventually admitted on CBB that he cheated on Steph before their honeymoon.

"I wonder now if we’d had a few more conversations with the experts whether that might have helped. Instead, it felt a bit as if we were told we were a match and then left to our own devices."

Sam McDonald and Jack Finn-Kelcey

Sam and Jack never actually made it down the aisle after Sam said the process was too much pressure and pulled out before the wedding.
