A British man who started a relationship with a Ukrainian refugee after he and his long term partner gave her a place to live has now dumped her just months later - but his ex said she 'wouldn't have him back in a million years'.

Tony Garnett, 30, fell for Sofiia Karkadym, 22, just days after she started living with him and his partner of ten years Lorna Garnett, 28, who is the mother of his two children.

The security guard and his now ex-girlfriend made headlines in May after he left Lorna and moved out of the family home after 10 days with his new lover so they could start a new life together.

Tony now claims he has thrown out Sofiia after accusing her of not being able to handle alcohol and accusing her of interfering with his relationship with his two daughters.

Lorna, of Bradford, told her friends that she 'knew it would end in disaster' for them but was surprised that it happened after only four months and that she 'wouldn't have him back in a million years'.

She is unable to speak publicly about Tony due to court proceedings, but The Sun reported that she told her friends that: 'He has thrown away so much.

'He can't see me because of a restraining order and he hasn't been seeing the children.

'But it's hard to feel any sympathy.'

A friend reportedly said that Lorna has been hurt Tony's actions but has remained strong and that 'her entire focus has been on the children'.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Tony revealed : 'I am 100 per cent through with her. We are finished as a couple.'

Tony claimed that matters came to a head when they rowed on Saturday night while celebrating his 30th birthday at their home in Bradford, West Yorkshire. He said he ended up calling police after Sofiia apparently damaged a wall, leading to officers attending the address.

Tony told MailOnline how he had become 'fed up' with what he described as her irrational behaviour during the four-and-a-half months they were together.

He said: 'I can't take her abuse or anger any longer.

'I left Lorna and my two children for her, and I made every extra effort I could to help her keep us together.

'I worked so hard to make this relationship work. I knew that we would look like tw*ts if we broke up because we have a media profile and all the attention that has been put on us on television and on the internet.

'I also genuinely felt sorry for her. She left her home and her country which was at war and knew nobody here.

'Yes, I felt and I thought I was in love with her. But there is a side to her which I just cannot put up with any longer. She gets angry and aggressive.

He claimed that: 'On Saturday night she picked up a knife and stabbed the wall several times.

'It really scared me and I had no choice but to call the police. That doesn't make me happy at all. But I was worried about my safety. '
