'Sordid sex fantasies' wrecked life
EastEnder Jessie Wallace's former fiance Vince Morse has admitted his "sordid sex fantasies" wrecked the couple's relationship but he still wants them to get back together, it has been reported.
The actress called off their wedding at the last minute after the 50-year-old catering boss admitted sending an explicit picture of the 39-year-old to his ex-girlfriend.
The Sun quoted Morse as telling a friend he was "drunk" and "showing off" when he sent the topless picture to his ex-girlfriend Karen Short.
He said: "It looks like it's destroyed the love of my life. It was probably the most stupid thing I've ever done. I'm an idiot. My sordid sex fantasies have ruined my life."
The Sun reported Wallace, the BBC1 soap's Kat Moon, spoke to Morse on Wednesday - the first time since she cancelled their wedding at an upmarket venue in Richmond, south-west London.
In a recent interview, Wallace said she fell in love with Morse on their second date. She said she knew he was the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, shortly after they met on a blind date.
Morse proposed after just three months.
"I wasn't looking for a relationship but then I found the love of my life," she told OK! magazine.
Wallace, who has been engaged twice in the past, said she moved 70 miles and transferred her daughter Tallulah, six, to another school to be with Morse in Surrey.
The actress joined EastEnders in 2000 as Kat Slater, and became one of the soap's favourite characters. She quit in 2005 but returned, with co-star Shane Richie (Alfie Moon), last autumn.
