“He was cheating on Steph with me follow my accounts for the photos,” she wrote on Instagram.
“He broke my heart tbh I’m 20 years old he should of known better I thought an older man would be mature but obviously he’s proven there all the same.” (sic)

She said: “If I knew he was with her I never would of given him the time of day… [it’s] about a man using young ladies and women for he’s own publicity he wants the publicity he has it.
“I wish I was never in this situation but why does he get to be happy after hurting me…Wouldn’t wish this feelin on my worst enemy… I’m a 20 year old who has never been in this situation and humiliated on the TV.

The accusations come just a day after it was revealed Steph had no idea about her separation from Ben until she read about it in the media.
“So we all found out via this article just now too. Even Steph. What a t**t,” she wrote online.
OK! online has gone to Ben’s representative for comment.
Ben said on Fubar that things started to go downhill when they moved in together following their wedding, which was broadcast on Channel 4.
“Stephanie and I are still friends but I couldn’t give her what she wanted and what she needed, and time is of the essence,” he explained.
“And why waste someone’s time if it’s not there? It killed me. After the end of the show we were giving it a go, but as my mum said, you don’t know someone until you’ve lived with them.
“One of the things I didn’t like was when she said ‘You’re my husband.’I was like, ‘OK, but I’ve got to get to know you first.'”
But following his appearance, he discussed his romance with former Apprentice star Luisa Zissman.
In one clip posted on Instagram stories, Luisa says: “They’ve broken up she was a psycho!”, before turning to Ben and asking: “Was she really psycho?”

Ben laughed before answering: “No… she was a little bit suffocating.”
Luisa then rather meanly said: “She suffocated you with her big a** in your face?”
Ben and Stephanie’s split means the final episode of the series saw every couple featured going their separate ways.
