Myleene Klass opens up for the first time about her split from husband Graham Quinn

Myleene Klass was left devastated when Graham Quinn, her partner of 11 years and husband of just 7 months,
announced he was leaving her in April.

The couple, who met when Graham, 38, worked as
a bodyguard for her Popstars group Hear’Say, are mum and dad to Ava, 5,
and 18-month-old Hero.

‘I thought Gray [Graham] and I were so happy,’ says Myleene, 34.

‘I’d just walked down the aisle, so of course I didn’t see it
coming – I hadn’t even got my wedding dress back from the cleaners.

‘I was just so very, very hurt.

‘I felt that I would sooner have taken a bullet.

‘Actually, at the beginning, every morning when I woke up I
thought I had taken a bullet to my heart.’

Graham quickly moved into a new bachelor flat.

‘I withdrew, I couldn’t grieve in public,’ Myleene tells You magazine.

‘On the day that I knew Gray had really gone – I had to
leave the family house too.

‘I didn’t fall apart because I knew that above everything
else the children needed me to be strong for them.

‘The children have been my absolute salvation.’
