The reality star clashed with artist Steve and booted him out of her house branding him 'too reliable and dull'.
Confused Steve, 34, was thought to devastated at the shock split as Kerry, 31, has spent months gushing about her new man since they met at a sports dinner last October.
But as Steve was ordered to collect the few items he had moved into Kerry's Oxted mansion he was said to be 'bewildered'.
