Francine Lewis has FORGIVEN 'cheating' husband Joel Ryan in divorce U-turn


Francine Lewis has forgiven her ‘cheating’ husband Joel Ryan and confirmed the couple of 22-years will not be getting a divorce.

The Britain’s Got Talent comedienne, 46, accused Joel of betraying her on live TV in April, saying she was ‘devastated’ after discovering the father of her two children had been playing away with his best friend’s partner.

After vowing she would never go back to Joel, 43, Francine revealed to MailOnline on Thursday evening that the pair have reconciled and even went on a romantic holiday together in May to Venice, where they resolved their differences.

‘I wasn’t thinking straight’: Francine Lewis has forgiven her ‘cheating’ husband Joel Ryan and confirmed the couple of 22-years will not be getting a divorce 

Speaking at Thursday’s London Lifestyle Awards, Francine said: ‘Initially, that’s what I thought. I thought I’m telling everyone now because there’s no going back and that helped me.

‘But obviously I wasn’t thinking straight, I was angry, and I didn’t know all the details and the facts at that point… it had just been 24 hours.

‘There were messages and no affair… I have no proof of anything else.’

In April, during an appearance on GB News to discuss fraud, Francine revealed: ‘Last night, I found out that he was cheating on me with his best friend’s girlfriend. I wish I had gone there and then because he put me in that situation and now, he’s put me in this situation. I’m devastated.

‘I’m still in shock and I’m numb but I’ll get through it, I have to, I have two children.’

Reliving the moment she discovered that Joel had been disloyal, Francine previously admitted ‘I thought I was going to collapse’, saying she was ‘screaming’ and calling him every name.

She was sent incriminating messages that made her believe Joel and the other woman, who remains unnamed, had been sleeping together behind her back.

However, she now says there was ‘no affair’ and has ‘no proof’ that Joel had sexual relations with his friend’s partner – beyond the ‘crude’ text messages he sent back in March. 

Speaking to the Daily Mail in April, she said: ‘When I read the texts he’d sent her I wanted to throw up. I don’t want to reveal what was in them – that’s not fair on my children – but let’s just say they were enough for me to want to end my marriage. There was intimate conversation and there were also deleted texts from him so I can only imagine what was sent.’

Francine, who spoke about her marriage at London’s Landmark hotel added: ‘Joel has moved back home – it’s a work in progress and he is doing his utmost best and a very good job

‘At the time I was like Joan Collins… I wanted revenge.

‘But I still love him and as we work through this, he is becoming the man I met.’

Francine rose to fame in 2013 when she appeared as a contestant on ITV show Britain’s Got Talent as an impressionist, where she got through to the final stages of the competition.

She became known for her impersonations of Katie Price, Stacey Solomon, and Cheryl Tweedy, and today regularly appears on news segments and opinion panels.

The TV star has been married to Joel for 17 years and in a relationship for 22 and they share two children together.
