BEN Jardine is most famous for being on hit TV show Married At First Sight – and the breakdown of that marriage.
He is everything you need to know about the evicted Celebrity Big Brother 2018 star who is set to become a dad very soon.
Who is Ben Jardine and when did he appear on Married At First Sight?
Ben, 36, is a millionaire property tycoon.
He appeared on Married At First Sight earlier this year and ended up marrying Stephanie.
The couple were the only Married At First Sight newlyweds to survive the show.
However, soon after the cameras stopped rolling, they split – and Stephanie began divorce proceedings this month.
Ben tied the knot with Steph – a total stranger – on September 30, 2017, in front of Channel 4 cameras.
But after a rocky three months, he told her that he wanted a divorce and was shocked to learn he may have to wait 12 months for it to be made official.
Speaking to The Sun Online earlier this year, Ben said: “Steph’s a wonderful woman with a heart of gold and we were both 110 per cent in it to make it work.
“I never got into this to get divorced so didn’t ever consider that we’d have to stay together for a year if it didn’t work.
“I’m a Catholic boy and I take marriage very seriously – but it just wasn’t working.”
What is Ben Jardine’s net worth?

Before this, he was the Senior Commercial Manager Associate at Mace Group.
Is Ben Jardine a father?
On August 15, 2018, The Sun Online exclusively revealed Ben is set to become a father eight months after his split from Stephanie.
He told us: “They say ‘God loves to turn purposeless chaos into something beautiful’ and He (or She!) really has in my life!
“I have been blessed. Out of all the chaos of this past year, something beautiful has happened, which I will forever protect and be grateful for.
“I never thought it would happen to me. Everything happens for a reason. It’s going to make a man out of me and I’ll be a great dad.”
Ben’s daughter Siena Grace was born in late November 2018, leaving the new father “head over heels”.
He posted a photo of his newborn daughter on his chest on Instagram with the caption: “Thrilled to announce the arrival of little Siena Grace. #amazing
“Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! #buzzing #heresheis”
