Britain’s Got Talent Star Francine Lewis left GB News presenters speechless after she accused her husband of having an affair live on air.
The comedian rose to fame on the ITV talent show in 2013, where she wowed judges and audiences with her impersonations of the likes of Stacey Solomon, Cheryl Cole and Katie Price.
On Friday (April 22) Lewis appeared on GB News to discuss the story of how she and husband Joel Ryan lost £90,000 by investing their money in a bogus stockbroker firm.
However, she shocked the show’s hosts after she finished her segment by claiming she had just found out that Ryan, with whom she shares two children, had been cheating on her.
“There are little scams all the time, but you know what’s ironic?” said Lewis. “Stuck through the whole thing with my husband, got through it, and then I found out last night that he cheated on me with his best friend’s girlfriend.”
Host Patrick Christys looked stunned and said, “Gosh, right.”
“So you know what? I wish I would have gone there and then because he put me in this situation and now he has put me in this situation. I’m devastated,” Lewis said.
When asked if she was okay, she continued, “I will. I’m still shocked and dazed but you know what? I’ll get through it I have to, I have two children.”
After saying she felt “such a jerk again” and being reassured by the presenters, Lewis dabbed her eyes and impersonated Katie Price, saying: “Well looks like another divorce, what can I say? I love that.”
In a statement shared with GB News (via MailOnline), Ryan rejected his wife’s allegations.
“I did not have an affair and I deny any allegations made against me,” he said. “I sent some messages to a friend’s partner and I really regret sending them, but I wasn’t cheating or having an affair.

“I love Francine very much and I am ashamed for what I have done and deeply regret the pain I have caused. I just want to focus on my marriage.”
Lewis later tweeted: “I am overwhelmed by the wonderful news I received following my @GBNEWS interview. I never air my dirty laundry or talk about personal things but it was so heartbreaking to receive this message and see the messages sent!
“I didn’t want to cancel the show but it just came out because it was still so angry and so raw. I’m human and I couldn’t keep it to myself! @GBNEWS.”
