Former MP Lembit Opik is at the centre of another love split - after being ditched by his fiancee over his friendship with another woman.
Bulgarian lawyer Sabina Vankova dumped the ex-politician after spotting pictures of him with Russian Natalia Khomutinnkova on what he said were work trips to Paris and Nice.
It marks another twist in the 55 year old’s rollercoaster love life which has led to him being dubbed Britain’s most unlikely lothario.
While he’s not exactly your typical heart-throb his conquests include a Wonderbra model, one half of the Cheeky Girls and a redhead 24 years his junior.
And it’s left people wondering just how on earth he does it - and what might lie beneath the grey hair, geeky appearance and buttoned-up suit.
While his nickname at Westminster - Tripod - could provide a clue, that Wonderbra model, Katie Green, seems to have the answer.
While their 2009 romance was widely slammed as a publicity stunt, it didn’t stop her raving about his skills between the sheets - and his mouth organ.
She said: “Lembit’s the best lover I’ve ever had. When I first met him I thought he was a geek – the village idiot.
“But after a couple of hours I was bowled over by the force of his personality. I could see why girls fall for him, and I did too.
“And he laughs women into bed. He’s got a great sense of humour and had me in stitches with his silly jokes. But he’s massively intelligent too. I suppose you could say he blew my mind.
“He takes his harmonica everywhere and plays rhythm and blues tunes. He’d whip it out and serenade me, it was lovely.”
Lembit’s first high-profile romance was with Welsh weather presenter Sian Lloyd when he was the Lib Dem MP for Montgomeryshire. They met at a party and dated for four years, even getting engaged before an acrimonious split in 2006.
Sian branded him “not capable of an adult relationship’ and blasted him for drinking two bottles of wine per night. She also claimed there had been an overlap between her and Lembit’s next love - Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia.
She found fame with her sister in 2002 when they released their song Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum).
At the time they got together, Lembit was 41 and Gabriela was 24.
While Gabriela insisted she wasn’t to blame for his break-up with Sian, she gushed about the first time they had sex saying: “There was such a build-up of desire and a huge explosion between us. Lembit was very gentle and passionate.”
When news of the relationship got out, green-eyed fellow politicians were said to be quizzing Lembit on just how he managed to pull two such good-looking women.
The pair announced their engagement after he popped the question on a Roman holiday, but separated in July 2008 following what was described as a “difficult period”.
By 2009, he was linked with 21-year-old model Katie after they met at an anti-size zero event.
By 2010, he had moved on again - to another 21 year old, Merily McGivern. By this time, Lembit had lost his seat and was trying to launch a career as a comedian.
The student, who became his PA, had no idea who he was when they met but Lembit soon put her straight. “‘The first thing he said to me was “I’m really famous, you know!”,’ she said.
Despite her dad’s disapproval, the pair spent two years together and were engaged when they split.
That colourful love life went quiet until 2017 when Lembit revealed he was expecting a child with latest squeeze, property lawyer Sabina, after a two-year relationship. They later had a daughter Angelina.
Could he finally have settled down? Sadly it was not to be.
Later that year Sabina ended their relationship over an alleged night out with George Best’s former wife Alex. Alex denied any romantic link saying they were just friends.
Another twist last year saw Alex found guilty of drink driving and banned from the road for two years - after spending the day boozing with Lembit.
As gripping as any soap opera, the saga of lothario Lembit’s love life looks set to run and run...
