Jessie Wallace will pay out £20,000 for her cancelled wedding after agreeing to share the costs with her former fiance
Jessie Wallace will be forced to pay £20,000 for her cancelled wedding.
The 'EastEnders' actress called off her nuptials less than four hours before the ceremony after discovering her fiance Vincent Morse sent his former girlfriend Karen Short a series of racy messages and has agreed to split the bill for the cancelled nuptials and honeymoon with her ex.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Vince was panicking at the cost. It would have left him with nothing. But Jessie realised the fairest thing is to split it down the middle."
Jessie is currently staying at the luxurious hotel in Greece where the couple had planned a lavish £10,000 honeymoon and pals say she is determined to put a "brave face" on things despite her embarrassment at recent events.
The source added: "She is embarrassed to be on honeymoon without a husband but is putting a brave face on things."
Jessie recently revealed she feels as if she can cope with heartbreak now because she has been through so much in her life.
She explained to OK! magazine: "The way I look at it is that I've had so much to put up with. I've reached rock bottom. I've been at the point where I couldn't get much lower, so everything else just piles on.
"I can take it now - there's something in me that's got a lot stronger."
