I still beat myself up over the way I split with Stacey Solomon, says Jackass star Steve O


STACEY SOLOMON’s whirlwind romance with Jackass star Steve-O was one of the most unlikely showbiz relationships ever.

But never before have either revealed the real reason behind their split — until now.

In his new autobiography, wildman Steve-O admits he ghosted the Loose Women host weeks after moving to the UK to live with her after they met while filming Channel 4 show The Jump in 2015.

He says: “I was smitten, I lavished her with attention, I got what I wanted and then I broke it off.

“I had become not only part of her life, I’d become part of her kids’ lives too. And then — poof — I was gone”.

Stacey, who married former EastEnders star Joe Swash in July, has remained tight-lipped about the end of their six-month relationship.

Asked why they split shortly afterwards she said: “You’ll have to ask him why — I’m still trying to figure it out.”

But Steve-O, who was battling a sex addiction during their romance having previously been plagued with booze and drugs issues, admits he had form for suddenly breaking off relationships and cutting all contact.

He explained: “I’d meet some woman, pour on the charm to convince her I really cared about her (which I invariably thought I did) sleep with her a few times, then lose interest and ghost. Wash, rinse, repeat.”

But he admits he was in the wrong with Stacey, especially because the former I’m A Celeb winner made him part of her children’s lives.

Revealing in his new book A Hard Kick In The Nuts, Steve-o said: “To this day, I still beat myself up about the way it went down.

“Ironically, I don’t think Stacey does. We aren’t in touch any more, but she has corresponded with my family and seems to bear no ill toward me.

“She seems to be a happy person who can go through life without gigantic grudges, even when they might be totally justified. What a freak.”

Steve-O, who is famous for outrageous stunts, is now engaged to stylist Lux Wright.

If they make it to the altar it will be his third marriage.

Stacey will no doubt be happy with the way things turned out.

DURING his 21 years as Martin Platt on Coronation Street, there was a lot for Sean Wilson to be proud of.

But since leaving the cobbles in 2005 he’s gone on to become an award-winner in another field – as a cheesemaker.

And it is in his new career that Sean feels he has really excelled.

Looking back, he told me: “What was funny to me was even the royal family pretended they didn’t watch Coronation Street.

“But fast forward, I’m making my own cheese and I’m down in Windsor farm shop, I’m selling the blue cheese and new customers are coming to taste it.

“I get a tap on the shoulder and a lady says, ‘I’m one of the Queen’s Councils, and I shop for the Queen and I’m interested in your blue cheese.’

“She tasted it and said, “Oh, My God, it’s lovely.”

“We had a good long conversation about it so I gave her a piece. So the Queen had some of my blue cheese.”

“Then I super glued the wing mirror back on and leant on it with my breasts and then my breasts got stuck to the wing mirror.

“I swear to God, I’m not making it up. Then I shouted to the kids, ‘get me some scissors.’

“I was leaning over and the T-shirt I was wearing was totally stuck to them, so we had to cut the T-shirt off to free me.”

We’ve all been there, I’m sure.
