'She wanted everything her own way - she was a bit of a brat,' says Ceri.

'And worse, I'd just taken out an £18,000 loan that she'd asked me for - thanks to her, I was in financial trouble, too.

'I can't remember the rest of Sunday, as I was in a complete daze; it was so surreal to suddenly find out all this, that I'd been lied to all along.

'She wanted a business of her own - that was her big thing,' says Ceri.

'In Eastern Europe they think we all have lots of money and opportunities, so she thought Dad would open a business for her.

Chris says: 'She would cook dinner then run upstairs and leave Dad sitting alone in the living room all evening.' According to divorce papers, she moved out of the marital bedroom in 2004.

But it was her cost of living which proved hardest for Keith to handle. 'She racked up big phone bills calling the Ukraine, took regular trips out there and flew her two children, from a previous marriage in the Ukraine, back and forth to visit.' Lidiya was also receiving £700 'housekeeping' money each month - almost everything Keith drew from the business.

Keith Morgan, from Henllys, South Wales, whose farm had been in the family for 30 years, married Lidiya in 2002.

They had been introduced two years earlier as pen pals by a local man who had married a Ukrainian - though the first Chris knew of his father's relationship was when he disappeared for six days.

I grew very fond of her and started seeing her regularly.' Lidiya, who revealed little about her background in the Ukraine, told Peter that she had been recently widowed in Wales and was still living unhappily in the marital home - but had been left nothing in the will and that her stepchildren were causing trouble.

'I thought the situation sounded terrible and felt really sorry for her - losing her husband and then having nothing to survive on.

'Last weekend I couldn't have been happier because we'd just got married. I don't know how I'm going to cope.' When Peter met 54-year-old Lidiya Shulga last July - after striking up a relationship on a dating website - she portrayed herself very differently.
