Jessie Wallace's ex fiance Vince Morse has revealed that his fantasies for a threesome destroyed the couple's relationship.
The EastEnders actress cancelled the couple's wedding hours before the ceremony was due to take place, when her ex admitted sending a topless photo of Jessie to his ex-girlfriend, Karen Short.
The wedding was due to take place at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond, with 350 guests and a magazine deal.
According to The Sun, the 50-year-old catering boss told a friend: "I had this fantasy and I was really drunk.
"Me and Jessie had a silly row like many couples do. I was angry and tried to make my fantasy a reality by sending Karen that picture. I was showing off and when you're drunk you do all sorts of stupid thing.
"It looks like it's destroyed the love of my life. It was probably the most stupid thing I've ever done. I'm an idiot. My sordid sex fantasies have ruined my life."
Jessie, who has a six-year-old daughter and has been engaged twice in the past, previously told OK! magazine that she fell for Vince on their second date.
Vince is hoping to win Jessie back, saying she "is the only woman I want".
On the night before her wedding, hotel guests heard Jessie shouting.
One told the Sun: "I've never heard anything like it. She was wailing in grief, then growling in rage. She kept screaming 'How could he humiliate me like this? How could he do it?' … She was a woman in pieces."
The guest added: "EastEnders couldn't have written a better script."
