Liz McClarnon insists that she doesn't hold a flame for Lee Ryan
Their 'will they, won't they' saga has kept viewers of The Big Reunion gripped.
The pair got close in September 2001 when Blue and Atomic Kitten were in New York during the 9/11 terror attacks.
They got engaged in 2003, but later split after Liz said she found it too hard to be half of a celebrity couple.
She's since remained tight-lipped about the romance, while Lee's been less than gentlemanly - even claiming he 'never loved her'.
However, now it's payback time as Liz finally speaks out to tell us that, far from him being the love of her life, she never seriously planned to marry him anyway.
'He proposed in a hotel in Oxford. It was nice, I suppose. I got caught up in it,' Liz reveals.
'I said yes. But I never actually thought once about getting married or walking down the aisle.
'You should know it isn't going to happen if you can't picture it and I never did.'
The news will come as a blow to loudmouth Lee, who shocked viewers of the series by suggesting that Liz still had feelings for him.
