Marc Bannerman’s jilted girlfriend Sarah Matravers has spoken out about her devastation over the very public end to their relationship – and admitted they had even discussed starting a family.

The 33-year-old actress had been with Marc for two years before he joined ITV1 reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and apparently fell for Cerys Matthews on camera in just a matter of days.

A tearful Sarah, who met Marc on the set of Footballers’ Wives: Extra Time, told Grazia magazine: “Two weeks ago, Marc and I were laughing together, snuggling up in front of the fire. I was even willing to give him the biggest commitment a woman can give – a child.”

Last week, Sarah moved out of the north London home she shared with Marc and is apparently staying with a friend.

She added: “In the space of a fortnight, I’ve seen him cheat on live TV. Now I’m struggling to accept that the man I loved is not the person I thought he was; that I won’t be pregnant in the next couple of months; that I’ve had to move out of my home…

“The hardest thing of all was seeing him fall for Cerys. I think it would have been easier to cope with if it was just sexual chemistry – but seeing them staring into each others’ eyes, seeming so intimate, that was impossible,” she said.
