'Heartbroken' Hayley Palmer claims ex-boyfriend Mark 'The Beast' Labbett 'lives up to his nickname' after dumping her in a three-minute phone call


Hayley Palmer has branded her ex-boyfriend Mark Labbett ‘beastly’ after he dumped her in a three-minute phone call.

The ‘heartbroken’ TV presenter, 42, and The Chase star, 58, announced their split in May, just days after their one year anniversary. 

Now, Hayley has claimed Mark ‘lives up to his nickname’ after ‘blindsiding’ her by brutally breaking-up with her over the phone.

She also revealed Mark ended their year-long romance because he did not want to divorce his ex wife Katie.

Speaking to The Sun, Hayley explained: ‘He has really lived up to his name. The Beast has been a beast.

‘It has come as a complete shock. I thought we were really happy.

‘I’m heartbroken and blindsided. His behaviour has been beastly.’

Hayley added she was disappointed that Mark didn’t discuss their relationship issues face-to-face and has now blocked him so he can no longer contact her.

MailOnline has contacted Mark’s representatives for comment.  

Last month, Mark announced his split from girlfriend Hayley, after one year together.

Mark and 42-year-old Sky Entertainment reporter Hayley marked their one year anniversary on social media in May – but he later now claimed there was too much of an age gap between them. 

Confirming news of their break-up on Instagram, Palmer wrote: ‘It is with regret I announce that myself and Mark have gone our separate ways. We had the best year together and I truly wish him all the best for the future.’
