In a conversation with Barnaby Slater, Rhodri explained that he only found out about Ryan and Natasha's eight year affair on the day it was printed by the press.   

'I found out on the day the papers put it out,' he explained. 'Her mum came to my house at six in the morning.' 

Rhodri couldn't talk to his ex wife about the affair as she 'took the kids to Spain the day before and turned her phone off.' 

He added that he had had 'an inkling a couple of years before but mum talked me out of it.'

'It was a night of a United party and I was supposed to be meeting her and I was ringing her and she wasn't answering. I thought "I'll know where she'll be." I went to the party and she was in there.' 

Both Ryan and Natasha attempted to reconcile with Rhodri, with Ryan telling him the affair didn't mean anything and was 'just sex', but Rhodri insisted 'it was not real, it was all fake'.   

'Six months down the line he said he's going to do this, do that and then nothing has happened... He expects me just to forget it and act like things are normal but no, I went to the papers and from that day they never spoke to me.'

Rhodri said he has been left hurt by his mother siding with Ryan, admitting: 'It's like I've done the affair.'

'I've got three children, one whose five who she's never met and one who's 13 who she hasn't seen for seven or eight years, what have they done? They live a mile away.' 

'Ryan's got a son who's exactly the same age, these people should be mixing with each other and looking out for each other but instead they don't even know each other, that's the sad thing.'
