Vanessa, who previously opened up about her dating fortunes going forward, shared a statement revealed that the former couple had parted ways due to Ben's infidelity in their relationship.

The Tony 'n' Tina's Wedding theatre star confirmed the claims were true at the time. but has now insisted he's not a "serial cheat".

Speaking about his nearly two-decade long relationship with Vanessa, Ben explained in a new interview that there were many difficulties.

"There were two people involved, this was my life as well," the star told MailOnline. "Marriage means a lot to me, and I wanted to be married and she didn't want that, so we were going in different directions."

"She had no intention of marrying me. For me it was important and for her it wasn't," Ben went on. "I wish at the very beginning she had said that, but she didn't."

The star claimed that he didn't know what was "going on" in his former partner's head but it was a "shame" they couldn't work things out between them away from the public eye.

The star said: "It’s now clear that it’s over and I feel that you know once the trust is gone you can’t really get that back.

"I’m pretty disappointed and shocked about those horrible things but also full of resolve because I’m not going to let this defeat me."
