When Dean Wells begged his TV bride Tracey Jewel for forgiveness after his brief dalliance with "manslayer" Davina Rankin, she believed he was committed to repairing their fractured "marriage" and dedicated to getting it back on track.
But the gorgeous marketing consultant should have known better!
"Dean said he wanted to demonstrate his renewed commitment to Tracey and announced he was going out to buy a new wedding ring for his finger, to replace the one she'd given him that didn't fit," reveals a set insider.
"But instead of spending any of his own money, he just went home and polished up the ring his ex-wife gave him when they were married," our source adds with disdain.
"Tracey had no idea his new, perfectly fitting ring was actually a recycled relic from a past relationship!"
According to our source, Tracey, 34, was shattered when another contestant revealed Dean's latest low blow.
