There is one rule every girl knows - NEVER go on a date with your friend's ex. Perhaps someone should tell Danielle Lloyd's mate Maria Fowler that...

Talk about Fowl-er play!

It’s only been a couple of weeks since Danielle Lloyd, 30, kicked her cheating husband Jamie O’Hara to the curb and put their £1.9 million home up for sale after he reportedly slept with two women behind her back.

But now the mum of three has had to deal with ANOTHER shock – her glamour model ‘pal’ Maria Fowler, 28, has been spotted out with Jamie, 27.

Ex-TOWIE star Maria was pictured leaving Liv nightclub in Manchester with Jamie and some friends before they all headed to the Hilton Hotel at 4am.

Despite the reports, Maria insists she hasn’t done anything wrong and wasn’t on a date with Jamie, tweeting: ‘So hilarious people believe what they read. Would love it if people knew the actual TRUTH.’

The ‘date’ was certainly enough to upset Danielle. She apparently called Maria, who she has been friends with for five years, to find out the truth.

It’s not the first time Maria has broken the girl code and been snapped enjoying the company of a friend’s ex.

She did the same with Katie Price‘s Argentinean model ex-fiance Leandro Penna too.

Maria went for dinner with Leandro in November 2012 just one month after his relationship with Katie ended, and Katie immediately took to Twitter to call her ‘shameful’.

Maria has another pal who is going through heartbreak at the moment – Nicola McLean.

The 32-year-old talks exclusively to us in the new issue of Now, out tomorrow, about her marriage split, and is accusing her husband Tom Williams of cheating on her in Las Vegas.

Maria, if you’re reading this, it’s probably best you DON’T go on a night out with Tom now too. Just a tip.
