Michelle, 40, is coping with the bitter collapse of her 19-year marriage.

She is divorcing husband Michael, who is reported to have started a new relationship with former Ultimo designer Samantha Bunn, 31.

It was reported that Michael told Michelle their marriage was over as they prepared to eat Christmas dinner with the family.

But she is getting over her heartache with Dubai-based businessman Karl French, 44.

The pair met through former Celtic boss and Liverpool legend John Barnes and have recently returned from a photo shoot for Hello! magazine in the Maldives.In 2010 the Mones were told that their plans for an extravagant extension to turn the home into a massive mansion had been given the go-ahead.

Plans included a swimming pool and whirlpool bath, sauna, gym, bar, and cinema room.

The Mones had struck a deal to buy their next-door neighbour's six-bedroom villa and planned to demolish it to make room for the extension.

But other neighbours objected to the project, with 94-year-old widow Jean Hunt leading the complaints to South Lanarkshire Council.

Despite the fuss the Mones were told they could press ahead on the condition building work started within three years but building never started.

On Tuesday the Ultimo boss launched a self-tanning range and spoke of her recent brush with melanoma.

The mother-of-three underwent an operation at Glasgow’s Ross Hall Hospital last weekend to remove a growth from her shoulder.
