Strictly Come Dancing star Matt Di Angelo has been branded a marriage wrecker by ex-boyband member Andy Scott Lee, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The 28-year-old – a former member of the band 3SL and a subsequent Pop Idol finalist – told the paper that he ended his 19-month marriage to Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton, after discovering she and former EastEnder Di Angelo had had a fling.

“I’m speaking out now because I’m sick of the lies,” Scott Lee said.

“The truth is Matt Di Angelo killed my marriage. Michelle and I didn’t split up because we drifted apart – I ended it because she cheated on me before. But Matt was the straw the broke the camel’s back.”

He told the paper that he found out about the pair after reading a message to a friend which she had accidentally left on a laptop they shared.

The message included details of the time she and Di Angelo had spent together – but also added that neither of them wanted to end their relationships.

“At first she denied it outright,” Scott Lee said, “but I had evidence. I’d had enough of her lies so I told her the marriage was over.”

Di Angelo – who played Deano Wicks in EastEnders – announced this week that he had split with his girlfriend Flavia Cacace, who was his dance partner on Strictly.

The pair blamed conflicting work schedules for the split.
