Sherrie Hewson has a new boyfriend.
The 'Benidorm' star has refrained from finding love for the past 16 years because she was still holding a grudge against her ex-husband Ken Boyd - who cheated on her numerous times throughout their two-decade long marriage - but is thrilled she's finally let go of the anger she was holding on to and has now met someone else.
Speaking on the 'Loose Women' on Tuesday (17.01.17), she said: "I have met somebody else. And I have been out a couple of times."
Although the blonde star refused to divulge too many details about her new romance, it's thought coming face-to-face with her ex-husband, who she hasn't seen since 2002, at their daughter Keeley's wedding in October helped her bury the hatchet.
She explained: "I think it's been 16 years. I should've seen him the night before, sat down and said: 'Hi, how are you?' and get that bit done and we were both walking her down the aisle so I walk round the corner and he was there. Within one minute we were walking down the aisle. But sadly, it back footed me ... this was unbelievable, I didn't show it because it was my daughter's wedding and it was the most glorious day of my life. When I went to do the speech, I didn't know where I'd gone.
"All the memories came back - all the bad times. We didn't really speak because there was no point. He stayed on for two days and I was with all the family but I didn't really interact. I didn't mention him in my speech. He mentioned me. He just said: 'I think we should thank Sherrie but I did have a small part in this, you know.'
But the meeting clearly affected the 66-year-old actress more than she realised as she was later struck down with a nasty virus due to the immense stress she endured.
She explained: "Then I became quite ill, I think it was a virus but I completely shut down. I just went home and sat there and thought what has happened to me? I just got really poorly, I haven't faced anything for 16 years. Because I've had this day and because I got really ill, I thought maybe this will get rid of it now. Closure."
