Another criticised him in a more direct manner, as they said: ‘I can’t f***ing stand Ben Jardine. Hope Steph is watching this knowing she dodged a major bullet. What a cretin.’ 

While one Twitter used said: ‘I can already say I’m not going to like him, he doesn’t take responsibility for his actions and deflects the blame on others. 

‘I would be happy to see him be evicted first as he has a massively arrogant vibe about him.’

On Wednesday it was revealed Ben is preparing to become a father with a mystery woman, just months after his separation from on-screen wife Stephanie.

The love rat revealed to The Sun that he will be a dad by the end of the year, as he joyously said: ‘God loves to turn purposeless chaos into something beautiful” and He (or She!) really has in my life! I have been blessed’.

Speaking about the star, who first hit screens on the extreme dating and marriage show earlier this year, insiders told MailOnline: ‘The new relationship is in its very early days and he is unsure how to establish their romance.’ 

Ben first hit headlines when he married former policewoman Stephanie however they were plagued with reports of strife in their marriage and cheating claims. 

After being spotted headed to the lawyer to address their divorce, news has now surfaced of his new love – yet he remains secretive over their relationship status.  

The excited reality star told The Sun: ‘Out of all the chaos of this past year something beautiful has happened, which I will forever protect and be grateful for. 

‘I never thought it would happen to me. Everything happens for a reason. It’s going to make a man out of me and I’ll be a great dad.’      

In happier times: Ben shot to fame on Married At First Sight when he tied the knot with policewoman Stephanie, despite never having met her  

Ben announced his marriage was over during an interview with FUBAR Radio in March, much to the shock of his wife Stephanie.

But amid the bitter split, the estranged couple are finally moving ahead with their divorce, as they visited a solicitor’s office last week to start proceedings. 

While they have kicked off proceedings, Ben and Steph will have to wait until January 2019 to officially divorce, with Ben explaining to The Sun he hadn’t considered the timeline when he announced the split.

‘We were both 110 per cent in it to make it work. I never got into this to get divorced so didn’t ever consider that we’d be have to stay together for a year if it didn’t work,’ he insists. 

It’s all over: The property millionaire announced the couple had split in March, and later accused his estranged wife of trying to hold up divorce proceedings  

‘Now I just want closure. That’s why I revealed we’d split, I was sick of lying and everyone burying their heads in the sand thinking we’d sort it out.’

Ben previously accused his estranged wife of holding up their divorce proceedings and not giving him the closure he needs to move on from their relationship. 

Speaking to The Sun Online in March, the property millionaire claimed his police officer ex wasn’t impressed that he announced their TV marriage was over during an interview with FUBAR Radio.

He began: ‘At the end of the day you need to draw a line under it. Stephanie knew months before that radio interview, and I asked for my divorce papers, I’d asked and asked and asked.

‘And it was like, “I’m never gonna get these divorce papers”, because I never got them. We’re divorced – do you know what I mean, that’s what it’s about.’
