Andrea continued: ‘Our home looked like a movie. He told me that my Christmas present was behind the ball on the Christmas tree.

‘When I had a look, and turned that ball around it said on it “Marry Me”.

‘I instantly turned around in shock and there he was on his knee, holding a box with a ring in it, asking me the most important question of my life.’

But as quickly as their relationship blossomed, things came to an abrupt end when Andrea called time on their marriage after just six months.
