Sunetra Sarker has split from her husband and is now dating her business partner as she prepares to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Sunetra Sarker has split from her husband.
The 'Casualty' actress - who is competing on the current series of BBC One celebrity dance contest 'Strictly Come Dancing' - is now dating business partner Scott Carey, 42, after leaving her husband of ten years Nick Corfield, 44, last year.
Sunetra, who stars as Dr. Zoe Hanna in the BBC medical drama, and Scott became partners in Keep Me Fresh - a £45 device that kills bacteria - in February.
A friend of the star told The Sun newspaper: "Nick was the love of Sunetra's life and she thought she would be with him forever but they drifted apart.
"She met Scott and he swept her off her feet.
"They started Keep Me Fresh together, which is a play on the way they feel about each other.
"They are besotted and Scott will be coming down to support her on 'Strictly'."
The 41-year-old star first met Nick while on holiday in Jersey in 1989 and after rekindling their love during a chance meeting on the island ten years later they got married in 2003 and a year later had son Noah.
Speaking previously about their relationship, Sunetra said: "You don't realise when you meet someone at 16 that it isn't always going to be as perfect as that.
"Going back and meeting him again made me realise how special he was."
However, she's now loved up with Scott and, after the Strictly launch show last weekend - which saw her paired with show veteran Brendan Cole - she took to Twitter to thank her new beau for his support.
She wrote: "After the madness of last night - a calm sunny day in London with Scott #happybirthdayboyfriend xxx (sic)."
