Actor faces serious heat over controversial new relationship

It looks like Greg Woods, who plays Trevor Royle in Hollyoaks, is not in the good books at the moment.

Greg, who split from his wife of ten years last summer, has had to take to social media to address the backlash he's received about moving on and beginning a relationship with actress Sheridan Smith.

Taking to Twitter to defend having congratulated his girlfriend on collecting the gong for Best Drama Performance for her role as Cilla at The National Television Awards, the dad-of-three said: "I am single, my ex and I separated last summer and are currently going through a divorce."

Greg's wife Catherine is said to be struggling to deal with the speed in which her ex-partner moved on from their relationship, with a source close to the pair, saying: "Catherine was devastated when she realised Greg was dating Sheridan so soon after they split."

It came as a shock to the mother of Greg's children to learn that the Hollyoaks actor is in an established relationship, with a source revealing: "She found out in November that they were sending each other flirty messages on Twitter, but didn't know things had gone any further."

Aw, break-ups can be so tough.
