Myleene Klass has been left reeling after discovering her estranged husband's friendship with a 25-year-old backing dancer he met on tour, it has been claimed.
Graham Quinn, walked out on the 34-year-old presenter in April, just days after he and Sarah Robinson are believed to have seen each other in Cardiff on the X Factor tour.
Security and tour manager Gray and Sarah, who made headlines in 2010 when Matt Cardle fell for her, became friends while they both travelled with the X Factor tour in February.

Now magazine reports that Sarah and Gray, 38,
were seen chatting warmly to each other in the bar after shows on the
Quinn's security company then went to travel with JLS on their tour, and on March 14 Sarah tweeted: 'Good luck to
@JLSOfficial for opening night and @grayirish for secruing the
premises!! We miss you!' (sic)
A few weeks later separate messages on Twitter revealed that they were both in Cardiff at the same time.
Rumours: Gray and Sarah (who split from Matt Cardle last month) are said to have grown close while working on the X Factor tour earlier this year
On April 3, Sarah tweeted: 'On route to Cardiff … Feeling very thoughtful …' She later tweeted that she would be in town, dancing for the X Factor tour, until the 6th.
On April 5, Gray replied to Claire
Richards of Steps when she enquired whether he was in Glasgow with JLS, that he had left to go to Cardiff instead to 'cover the X Factor tour.'
Sarah, who has been a backing dancer for stars including Paul McCartney and Shirley Bassey, caused such a stir on last year's show when she was banned from dancing with teen band One Direction because she made them too nervous because of her stunning looks.

Sarah split from Matt Cardle four weeks ago and Gray told Myleene in April that he was leaving her and their daughters Ava, four, and Hero, 15 months.
‘Myleene still can’t take it all in,’ a friend of the star's told the Daily Mail recently. ‘Graham came home that night, packed his things and said he was off and that the marriage was over. Myleene begged him to stay – she thought there must be a way they could make it work.
‘But he’s barely spoken to her since. No one can understand it – of course they had their problems, just like any couple, but there was no warning sign, no big row beforehand.
Short-lived: Myleene and Gray, who became engaged in 2005, only married in October
‘They have two young daughters and he has responsibilities. Myleene’s been left with two little girls to look after on her own.
'Myleene has been in floods of tears for the past few weeks. Of course the heartbreak has affected how she looks – she’s not been eating much. It’s only really starting to sink in now that Graham won’t be coming back home and it’s over, but she’s still stunned.’
It has also been reported that Graham already had a new home lined up when he moved out.
A source said: ‘When Graham left, Myleene thought he would be staying with friends. Then she found out he had bought a flat. You can’t just buy property in a few days – so he must have been planning his departure for months, which makes Myleene feel sick.’
Dividing assets: Myleene is understood to have offered Gray half of the sale of their 2.5million home – but none of her 12million fortune
The pair met 2001 when Quinn was a bodyguard for Klass' pop group Hear'Say.
Meanwhile, Cardle, who won The X Factor back in 2010, is said to be 'devastated' over his recent split from Sarah.
The pair met during their time on the show together, and began dating shortly after he was crowned the winner. They had been quietly dating since then up until last month, according to Now magazine.
According to the Sun, Sarah split from her boyfriend of four years, singer Blair Dreelan, just weeks before embarking on her relationship with Cardle. Dreelan is a member of boy band Ba5e, who had auditioned unsuccessfully for X Factor three times. A spokesperson for Klass declined to comment.
