Meeks’s wife Melissa, 38, says she had ‘no idea’ her 33-year-old husband was enjoying a liaison with Miss Green while ostensibly on a working trip to Turkey. She told The Mail on Sunday that the picture left her feeling ‘humiliated’ and signalled an instant death knell for their eight-year marriage.
Melissa says: ‘I know it takes two to tango but she knew he was married. To me, that’s unforgivable. My whole world has been torn apart by this. What do I tell our children? My heart is broken.
‘What sort of woman would do something like this to another woman? My marriage wasn’t perfect but I thought it could be saved, until this happened.
‘Of course I’m angry at her. What she did is unforgivable. And I’m angry at him too. What they did destroyed my entire world.
‘Did either of them think about the children and how this will affect them? They’re the innocent victims in this. And so am I.’
And last night she branded the photographs ‘brazen’, adding: ‘It’s all been so public. They weren’t even trying to be discreet. I’ve been publicly humiliated, which makes the pain so much worse.’

The pair finally had a showdown on Wednesday when Meeks brought the children home. Melissa says: ‘We had it out on the doorstep. I told him how devastated and angry I am. He kept apologising – not for the affair, but for the way I learned about it. I feel humiliated, not just because my husband was caught with another woman but for the fact they were so brazen about it. He told me, “I didn’t mean it to happen like this.” Those pictures will haunt me for ever.
‘He kept saying, “I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this.” We talked about divorce. I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over.’ The finality of the statement makes her eyes cloud with pain.
