Emmerdale star demands divorce from love rat husband in furious showdown after cheating scandal


HEARTBROKEN Emmerdale and Downton Abbey star Amy Nuttall has demanded a divorce from cheating actor husband Andrew Buchan — after he was ditched by his new co-star lover.

Broadchurch star Buchan, 44, walked out on his 11-year marriage to Amy, 40, to be with Leila Farzad after they appeared in BBC drama Better together.

Amy has now told him that she formally wants to end their marriage.

But in a shock twist, it has emerged Leila, 39 — also known for her role in Sky’s I Hate Suzie — has decided to go back to the family home she shares with her own husband and children.

HOAR previously revealed the shock TV love triangle, after Andrew  walked out on his marriage to former soap pin-up Amy to be with Leila.

His exit left Amy devastated, but sources say she has since “decided to take back control” and made it clear she wants a divorce – along with everything else she is entitled to.

A pal explained: “The shock twist is that it  sounds as though after all the hurt and heartache, Andrew and Leila have actually split.

“However,  that hasn’t done much to change Amy’s mind.

“She’s told him she wants a divorce anyway. She’s been publicly humiliated and the pain has been unbearable.

“She thought he was away working, when in fact he was often in hotels with Leila — once the truth emerged it was like being hit by a train.

“Now she’s decided to take back control again and plan her own future.

“She’s going down the legal route and will get everything she’s entitled to.”

Meanwhile Oxford-educated Leila has been back at home with her husband, James Maizels, in a bid to repair the damage to her own marriage.

An insider added: “They seem to want to make another go at it — they’re wearing wedding rings again and spending time together to rebuild.”

Amy’s divorce demands came after HOAR revealed she is also eager for a slot on Strictly Come Dancing, having been inspired by Countryfile host Helen Skelton, who used the TV contest as an opportunity to bounce back from her own marriage breakdown last year.
