Ex Hi-5 star Lauren Brant linked to Footy Show 'affair'
FORMER Hi-5 star Lauren Brant's heartbroken ex dumped her after finding out she had an affair with Beau Ryan, according to a woman's magazine.
What was meant to be a romantic holiday in New Zealand quickly turned to heartache for the former kids' entertainer Lauren Brant and her fiancée, personal trainer Warren Riley.
Lauren, who went to school on the Sunshine Coast, reportedly admitted to sleeping with hunky NRL Footy Show larrikin, Beau Ryan, on more than one occasion when they starred together in the Sydney theatre production of Aladdin and his Wondrous Lamp earlier in the year.
Warren said he discovered his wife-to-be was cheating after he unearthed text messages on his phone.
"It's kind of a punch in the stomach. I felt completely sick," Warren told Woman's Day.
A spokesperson for the 30-year-old sports star told Woman's Day: "Beau and his family are on holiday spending much needed time together and we have no comment to make on their personal life."
Lauren took to social media to post a string of cryptic updates. "Feeling free as a bird x," she mused on Twitter.

On Friday she wrote: "It's about time all you guys out there go and buy your girls some flowers x."
On Sunday, babies were the subjects of her tweet: "In a kids clothing store - looking at babies clothes. Clucky much?"
And just moments later, she penned: "Because I'm happy..."
