    Catherine said: "If he had told me he was married before our wedding, we'd probably still be together.

    "But I can't forgive the lies he told. He took advantage of a single mum and her kids for his own gain. There's no way I'd ever have him back."

    Janice, 35, said: "George couldn't wait to get a ring on my finger. We got engaged after only three weeks.

    "But after Ross was born he turned nasty. He blamed him for everything, but after he left I realised he was under a lot of pressure because he was in debt.

    "I didn't go out because he used to call me a fat, ugly bitch.

    "He left me with about pounds 18,000 of debt but he has now agreed to pay some of it.

    "He may even have been having an affair with someone while still married to me. I found lots of hotel bills and receipts I knew nothing about."

    At Paisley Sheriff Court yesterday, Bradley, of Deacons-bank, Glasgow, admitted bigamy.

    His lawyer Vincent Forrester said: "He has had four different relationships. The last one ended disastrously.

    "This has been shattering for Mr Bradley."
