“I didn’t realise how serious a decision I was making when I got on that plane to come here and get married. Love is a funny thing.”

"I sacrificed everything for my family and my marriage.”

Before she met Graeme while on holiday in his native South Africa, Morgan was member of the pop group Industry with Michele McGrath, Lee Hutton and Donal Skehan.

Morgan was heartbroken to find out her husband was cheating on her earlier this year when she received a text by accident which he had intended to send to his legal advisor.

“I found out on 18th January, two days after I returned from Ireland, that Graeme started the process by having his first meeting with a divorce lawyer. When I asked him if he had seen a divorce lawyer he denied it.

“As karma would have it, Graeme sent a message intended for the lawyer to me by mistake," Morgan confirmed to the outlet.

"There weren’t problems or anything like it then. Even as recently as September, Graeme wanted us to have a third baby.

"His plan was for us to start in January. He was very open about it – even to our parents.”

The couple have two children together; Cadence (2) and Carter (1).

Morgan said she is determined to give her children a better home and is relocating to Ireland with them.

“Graeme can visit them as often as he can.

“He can afford to travel and does travel a lot. When they’re older they can visit  him too," she said.
