A woman has put her £2,000 wedding dress on eBay in a bid to pay for the divorce from her 'cheating husband', who left her 'footing the bill'.

Samantha Wragg, 28, from Chesterfield, wore the ivory 'art deco' dress on her wedding day in 2014 but claims her groom soon left her for another woman.

The blogger wrote that she only has two photos of the dress, as she "deleted everything" with her ex-husband's "disgusting face" on when she learned he had been living with another woman.

"If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you," she wrote on the listing, before adding: "I hope this dress brings you a lot more happiness than it brought me in the end".

The dress, which is a size six and comes complete with a veil, was brand new two years ago and has already reached more than £27,000 on eBay.

Writing on her blog, Samantha said she "can't count" the number of messages she has received from men and women wishing her all the best, and has even had a couple of marriage proposals.

Although her ex-husband made a "terrible and a really hurtful mistake", Samantha said she has forgiven him and wishes him "all the best with everything".

"I’m very happy now so I hope he is too," she said.
