Ben Cohen's ex-wife Abby has revealed she hit "rock bottom" after he dumped her for his Strictly Come Dancing partner Kristina Rihanoff.
The rugby ace left his wife of 11 years and struck up a new romance with the Russian pro dancer.
Abby, 38, mum of Ben's two kids, opened up about her pain as she promoted a new web series show she's working on, The Updaters.
The lifestyle photographer said she's going to use her heartache to help the contestants on the show, who get makeovers to improve their confidence.
She said: "I know from personal experience what it’s like to hit rock bottom and it's devastating.
"With wonderful family and friends I’ve built myself back up…"
Abby and Ben split in 2013 after his appearance on Strictly and they divorced in 2016.
Ben and Kristina are still a couple and they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Mia, in 2016.
Abby is being joined on the show by another heartbroken celebrity wife, Lisa Armstrong.
The make-up artist, who split from husband Ant McPartlin last year, will be giving people new looks for the web series.
She said she hopes to inspire women not to believe false celebrity images and phoney advertising that can strip people of their self-confidence.
Lisa explained: "The celebrity version of perfection that bombards us every day is not real.
"Nobody is immune to insecurities, nobody! We all have issues that chip away at our confidence on a daily basis.
"Social media makes us hold ourselves to unrealistic standards… There is no such thing as perfection and uniqueness is what makes us all so very special.
"Make-up has the power to bring out your best features, it highlights rather than distracts.
"I hope to show that with faith and with courage we can all shine!”
