Myleene Klass opens up about husband leaving her
Myleene Klass was the centre of headlines in April this year when her husband of seven months (and partner for 11 years) Graham Quinn left her. The couple, who have two young daughters together, became the source of speculation surrounding their relationship and TV presenter and classical pianist Myleene has waited until now to talk about the harrowing experience.
"I thought Gray [Graham] and I were so happy," she told You magazine.
"I had just walked down the aisle, so of course I didn't see it coming - I hadn't even got my wedding dress back from the cleaners.
"When it first happened and I was in the middle of the storm I was just so very, very hurt. I felt I would sooner have taken a bullet. Actually, at the beginning, every morning when I woke up, I thought I had taken a bullet to my heart."
Myleene and Gray married in October last year in a secret ceremony with fewer than 20 guests and, having been together for over a decade previously, it seemed like a perfect match made in heaven.
The couple met in 2001 when he was a bodyguard for Hear'Say, the pop group that made Myleene famous. They became engaged in 2005 and have two daughters together, Ava and Hero.
"I thought I had taken a bullet to my heart."
Myleene, who has also starred in the famous Marks & Spencers adverts, also admitted that she 'grieved' the end of her relationship.
"Your love for someone isn't a tap - you can't switch it on and off. It hurts. There were days when I didn't want to get out of bed and my mum would say to me, 'It's OK, you are just grieving.' And she was right - it is a kind of grief, a grief that you have to work through."
She has also explained how she got over those initial difficult days - in the sanctity of her friends and her daughters.
"I remember [Lauren Laverne] knocking on my door one day and walking in and putting a big tub of ice cream with two spoons on the table and saying to me "Talk and eat!" My friends were like my backbone when I didn't feel I had one. I am so appreciative that they all let me talk, talk, talk," she explained.
And, despite everything she's been through - the end of a long-term relationship, her daughters' father leaving the family home and having it all played out under the media spotlight - Myleene remains positive for the future.
"I don't want to sound like Oprah but no person should be able to take away your ability to love and trust," she said. "I will always love but I don't think I will ever again give anyone the power to destroy my trust."

Try 32 years and counting
Many of us have survived the exact same situation and I applaud Myleene's dignity. Wishing you well hun xx.
Why on earth do these media-obsessed people feel the need to tell everyone everything about themselves? Aside of course from the on-going publicity, the money, the job prospects..............blah blah. Why should I have the merest interest in someone else's relationship problems? I've had enough of my own thanks, no-one wanted to know about them and I wasn't going to tell anyone anyway.
If you've got a relationship problem, keep it between the two of you - the rest of us don't give a tuppenny damn.
Now let's hear his side of the story.
Maybe he got fed up with her egotistical personality.
She was everywhere, felt like there was no getting away from her.
As for loyalty.... well, she was dumped by M & S and is now in another clothes company adverts.
She went ahead with the marriage even though their relationship was rocky, thinking that that would bring them together - like having kids to save a failing marriage!
I think that having these people continually thrust in front of us day in day out, spouting about everything in their lives, seems to make them think that their self inflicted problems are more important than everyone else's woes. If it were genuine and not yet another publicity grab, I would sympathise, but she really should, as my Gran would say, buck up and get on with it!
Sad as it is, it happens everyday out there in "real world", why do "celebs" think they have the monopoly on heartbreak?
Erm, she's been gone for ages and now suddenly she's all over the tv and appearing here? She must have one hell of an agent or maybe in one of the best secret handshake gangs to survive like this.
BE GONE WOMAN!!!
