Actor Ben Freeman moves on

Love cheat Ben Freeman has been thrown out by his wife after she caught him cheating with Wicked co-star Gina Beck.

Now can reveal that Ben‘s wife of two years Jennifer Biddall – mum to his 15-month-old son Joseph – has been left ‘distraught and livid’ over his betrayal.

Speaking outside their home in Windsor, a tearful Jennifer, 32, told Now she’s desperately trying to pick up the pieces.

Wiping her eyes, the former Hollyoaks actress said: ‘I can’t even speak at the moment.

‘I just hope everything works out.’

Former Emmerdale star Ben, 32, was exposed last week when he was spotted kissing Gina, 31, who plays good witch Glinda to his Prince Fiyero in West End musical Wicked.

The pair were openly embracing before heading back to Gina‘s flat in Wanstead.

Ben‘s marriage had until now appeared happy and he and Jen even had a joint column in a baby magazine.

But sources claim Ben has been getting close to Gina since January, when Jennifer was in Australia with Joseph.

A friend of the couple tells Now that Jennifer heard rumours and confronted Ben a few weeks ago, before throwing him out.

The friend says: ‘Jennifer was livid. She screamed: “How could you do this to me and our son?”

‘She was absolutely distraught. Now he’s been caught out it’s made it even worse.

‘She feels embarrassed and stressed.’

Ben – who previously made headlines in 2008 when he was acquitted of rape in Barbados, a charge he always strongly denied – has been spotted at Gina‘s flat three nights in one week, although his rep insists he’s living with his mum.

Gina was engaged to fellow actor Martin Neely until recently.

Now contacted him but he refused to comment.
