On Wednesday afternoon Katie posted a tirade of tweets hitting out at both Jane and Kieran, where she revealed she was planning on divorcing the builder and part-time stripper amid claims he'd been having “a full blown sexual affair” for as long as seven months with her friend, who was even a bridesmaid at the couple's wedding.
The news was even more shocking as just days earlier Katie had confirmed that she was six months pregnant with Kieran’s baby, the couple’s second child together and her sixth overall.
In a joint statement with her husband, Jane has now confirmed that she was unfaithful with Kieran, saying: “It is true that Jane and Kieran Hayler had an affair. This is something that Jane deeply regrets and we will not provide any more details about it. It is true that Kate found out about this affair yesterday.”
However, Jane’s husband has previously played down Jane and Kieran’s affair, claiming it was more of a “drunken kiss” and that Katie had created “a storm in a tea-cup” with her string of angry tweets.
After posting her furious messages, Katie was spotted by photographers outside of Jane’s home wearing hot pants and Ugg boots, where she had reportedly arrived to talk it out with the couple.
In a statement she released later, the star said she was “appalled” by the revelations, saying: “I appreciate most people will have seen my tweets on the subject of my marriage to Kieran. I make no apologies for them though it will be appreciated that, sending them immediately after Kieran confirmed to me what he had been doing for the last 7 months, those tweets were a sign of my heart breaking.”
