How I found fiancee was advertising as a hooker; LOVER'S DATING APP SHOCKER FOR EX-BOYBAND STAR; BY ABZ FROM 5IVE; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: HALINA WATTS Showbiz Editor

HEARTBROKEN pop star Abz Love has told of the moment he discovered his fiancee was offering herself as a [euro]2,300-a-night escort.

The 5ive frontman split with Vicky Fallon in March, a month after finding out she had a seedy profile on AdultWork.com.

He recalls how he made the shocking discovery after using the satnav on Vicky's phone.

In an exclusive interview, Abz, 37, says: "At the beginning of March she was going out a lot, partying and coming back late.

"She said she was hanging out with new people, doing different things and I was getting worried.

"Even in those moments we were talking about having a baby and getting married. But we were out one night and we used her phone for the satnav, so it was unlocked when I went to the car.

"I picked it up to bring it to Vicky and as I was walking back I saw the Sugar Daddy App and opened it.

SHAKING

"I went back to the car for a bit and read some of the messages. I also saw an app for AdultWork but it required a passcode, so later I found her profile on the website.

"I searched for escorts and there she was. I couldn't believe it the world started shaking. I took screen shots as her profile was still public before she deleted it.

"It was so horrible. She was my fiancee. It's f****** filth. It's more than PS500 for two hours. I can't believe I nearly married an escort.

"The next day I brought it up and she just looked at me and said: It's your fault, you haven't had any work for two years, I'm glad you found out'. She was spitting so much venom at me."

Vicky's profile name was Sugarp**sy26" and she offered to "fulfil your wildest fantasies and desires" - at up to [euro]450 an hour, [euro]760 for two and [euro]2,300 for a night in a hotel.

Vicky told the Irish Sunday Mirror: "I don't have rich parents I can turn to. I was at my lowest ebb. I joined a site called AdultWork.

"I was on it for about two weeks. I was absolutely s******* myself, I didn't know what I was going to do.

"I was so scared and I didn't know how I was going to survive. But I never met up with anyone and I came off it.

"Why would anyone do that unless they were pushed to the edge? "It's so awful. I was honest about where I stored my passwords, I've always been very honest with him and that's where he found them. I just tried to play the game, make some money.

I'm so embarrassed."

Vicky said she and Abz had hit financial trouble and she had to sell furniture and personal belongings after his work dried up. Abz shot to fame in 1990s boyband 5ive with Sean Conlon, Ritchie Neville, Scott Robinson and Jason "J" Brown.

Hits included Slam Dunk (Da Funk) and Everybody Get Up. They went on to star in the 2013 ITV2 series The Big Reunion, albeit as a quartet without Jason.

At the time, Abz credited Vicky for bringing him back from the brink following drink and drug addiction.

In 2014, he quit the band for good to become a farmer in Wales with Vicky, 32.

DADDIES

A year later they starred in BBC2 series Country Strife: Abz on the Farm, followed by a Christmas special.

Abz, real name Richard Abidin Breen, started dating Vicky in 2009.

Last month she told how their financial woes became so great that she rejoined website Seeking Arrangement, where rich sugar daddies pay for young acquaintances to enjoy their luxurious lifestyles with them.

She said: "I used a sugar daddy site when I was single and desperately needed help. I didn't want to go back there but couldn't see any other way out. Although I never actually met up with anyone this time, when Abz found out that I'd signed up he called me a, 'low, dirty scumbag w***e'.

"I was actually relieved it was out in the open because I knew I was done with him and our toxic relationship."

Abz has decided to speak out because of the effect the breakdown of the relationship had on him.

He said: "In the end I found the relationship emotionally and psychologically draining. She really hurt me. I've been thinking about getting counselling. She said a lot of things which weren't nice. It made me feel ill.

"She said it was a toxic relationship and it certainly was. It damaged me and I feel I need to speak out about it. When we first starting going out she had a sugar daddy, I knew about that. She then got rid of him, she tried love instead of money and we had some amazing times together.

"Really beautiful, amazing moments where we'd grown together. But this is far worse than any of that. It's heartbreaking."

Abz - who is now couch surfing with friends in London while he tries to rebuild his life - fears Vicky plans to make a TV show about him. He adds: "If there is anything to come from this, don't be a farmer and don't move to the middle of nowhere.

"I'm a fool for love, I'm a bit of a nitwit and rubbish with money. I admit that.

"I've just got try to sort my life out, pay off my debts, that's my main priority. I can't even afford a solicitor.

"She's got the house and I'm on mates' sofas in London."
