Myleene Klass has thanked well-wishers for their support and kindness following the shock breakdown of her six-month marriage to Graham Quinn, a security boss.
Writing on Twitter, the mum-of-two said:
"Thank you all of you for the thoughts and msgs of support for me and my girls. They've given me comfort, courage and hope. #strongmamas X"
The news of the couple's surprise split came a week ago, with reports suggesting that Graham had dumped TV presenter and classical pianist Myleene on her 34th birthday on April 6, - something he has since spoken out to deny, saying:
"Who in their right mind would drop someone on their birthday? I'm not sick in the head, do you know what I mean? Especially after 11 years with the girl. You know, I have respect for her. I'd never do something like that... I feel like a scapegoat right now."
Graham told the Sunday Mirror that the marriage 'wasn't great' and had 'unfortunately' come to an end, adding that his children were the 'main thing'.
He also hit back at claims that he had not seen his daughters, Ava, four, and Hero, 14 months, since the split, saying:
"It's rubbish that I haven't seen the kids since I left. I have seen them a couple of times. I've been away and I'm away until the end of August."
Myleene had married Graham in a small ceremony with just 16 guests on 21 October, 2011. She kept the news of the wedding private, only announcing it on Twitter after the event, and posting a pic with the caption: "I didn't dream it! My husband and I."
They had been together for 11 years, and engaged for five. They met in 2001 when Graham was a security guard for Myleene's band Hearsay. Heartbroken Myleene has reportedly not told her daughters that their daddy is not coming home.
Parentdish ran an interview last year in which Myleene answered plans about her wedding after such a long engagement. She said
"Well, every time we plan a wedding, a baby comes along! It seems to bother everyone else more than it bothers us
"Ava wants a marriage but she doesn't know that we are not married. She thinks weddings happen so you can wear a pretty dress. Knowing Gray, though, if we did marry, it will have to be so covert because he can't bear attention. If more than 20 people were at the wedding, I'd be jilted at the altar!"
Our sympathies go out to Myleene.
