Star who kissed Zoe Ball wasn't 'shocked' by her marriage ending

The boy band star Zoe Ball shared a kiss with felt it was only a matter of time before her marriage ended.

Franklin Lake singer TayTay Starhz feels that the 45-year-old presenter and her spouse Fatboy Slim - who announced their separation at the weekend - would have marital issues without the embrace they shared on a night out in London last year and takes no responsibility for the breakdown of their relationship.

He said: "Zoe wasn't happy in her marriage and she decided to cheat. I bet I wasn't the first or the last.

"If that drunken kiss was one of the catalysts that ended her marriage then it's not my issue.

"I'm single and have no family responsibilities. I have no one else to answer to."

The 23-year-old singer also said he thinks it's best that she and the 53-year-old DJ - whose real name is Norman Cook - have gone their separate ways.

He told The Sun newspaper: "It'll be the best thing for her if she's told Norman she's unhappy and wants to walk away.

"She was being a cheat so it's a good thing for them both to go their separate ways."

TayTay also said he wasn't "shocked" to hear the news the pair had split up earlier this week.

He said: "I wasn't shocked with her splitting up with Norman, obviously she's after something completely different if she was kissing me in a club."

And he also claimed he had no idea Zoe - who has kids Woody, 16, and Nelly, six, with Norman - was married when he kissed her and insisted he wouldn't have done so if he'd been aware.

He said: "People made out it was my fault because she's married but she gave off the impression she was single.

"I was on a night out with my friends and she lunged at me. I would have swerved her completely if I knew she was married."

TayTay - who is 22 years Zoe's junior - also said thinking about the night they locked lips makes him cringe because of the age difference.

He added: "She was dancing towards me. It was like a scene from 'Fifty Shades Of Grey', she was holding my neck and then she leaned in for a kiss.

"It was just physical that night, she didn't even ask for my name. The kiss wasn't just a peck on the lips, it was a proper French kiss with tongues. I'm still cringing now because she's old enough to be my mum."

Announcing their split, the pair said in a joint statement: said in a statement: "With great sadness we are announcing that we have separated.

After many exciting adventures together over the last 18 years we have come to the end of our rainbow.

"We are still great friends and will continue to support each other and raise our beautiful children together, living next door but one."
