EastEnders: Neil McDermott splits from wife after sex scandal

EastEnders star Neil McDermott – who plays Ryan Malloy – was spotted by The Sun photographers yesterday leaving the home he shares with wife Michelle after revelations yesterday had had a one night stand with a 16 year old fan.

It appeared that Neil had some of his possessions with him and was tellingly not wearing his wedding ring.

He and wife Michelle have a daughter who’s just weeks old, and as reports regarding his infidelity suggested, baby Arabella was only three weeks old when Ryan met and slept with a teenaged fan.

The paper states, “McDermott bedded soap fan Chloe Peebles in a budget hotel room two weeks ago while wife Michelle Edwards was at home with their newborn daughter.

“Yesterday there was no sign of devastated Michelle, 29, at their two-bedroom mid-terrace home in Sutton, Surrey.”

It’s believed his mother was at the couple’s home yesterday, and she and Neil left together. Yesterday, Neil issued an apology to Michelle, saying, “I’ve caused heartache to those I love most, which I deeply regret.”

Meanwhile, Peebles told the paper, “I felt terrible. I didn’t want to be a home-wrecker.”

Perhaps you shouldn’t have sold your story to the highest bidder then Chloe?
