Tony said: ‘I made a mistake by getting into a relationship with Sofia’
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Tony revealed: ‘I’m with her 100 per cent. We ended up as a couple.’
Tony claims the affair broke out when he cried on Saturday night while celebrating his 30th birthday at his home in Bradford, West Yorkshire. He said he called the police after Sophia damaged the wall, which sent officers to the address.
Toni told MailOnline how she was ‘fed up’ with what she described as his irrational behavior during their four-and-a-half months together.
He said, ‘I can no longer tolerate his abuse or anger.
‘I gave up Lorna and my two children for him, and I did everything I could to help him keep us together.
‘I worked very hard to make this relationship successful. I knew that if we broke up we would look like tw*ts because we have a media profile and all the attention is on us on television and on the internet.
Sofia Karkadym (pictured) arrived in the UK in early May after fleeing the war in Ukraine.
‘I felt really sorry for him too. He left his home and his country which was at war and nobody knew him here.
‘Yes, I felt and I thought I was in love with her. But there is a side of her that I can’t stand anymore. He becomes angry and aggressive.
He claimed: ‘On Saturday night she picked up a knife and struck the wall several times.
‘It really scared me and I had no choice but to call the police. That doesn’t make me happy at all. But I was worried about my safety. ‘
The fight broke out when two other Ukrainian refugees – Sofya Rastorhuyeva and her boyfriend Ilya Tronevich – were staying with the couple.
They moved in with Tony and Sophia after seeing a desperate appeal from them on Facebook, pleading to live with them.
Heavily tattooed Tony added: ‘I made a mistake by going into a relationship with Sophia.
‘As I said before, my relationship with Lorna had already ended and I was really sad.
‘But it wasn’t the right thing for me. I tried to help him. I really have.
‘I haven’t left her and have been texting her mum to help her with the help of Google Translate.
She may be suffering from PTSD. But she’s from Kiev where there hasn’t been much war.
‘I hope she finds a safe place to live and is in a happier place. But she’s not for me.’
Tony, who received a barrage of abuse online over his relationship with Sofia, said he would soon be looking for a new home and would be parting with other Ukrainian refugees.
He said that after the bust-up, Sofia sent him several messages, saying she loved him and begging for reconciliation.
But he told her he didn’t want her back, adding that he had already given her ‘chance after chance’.
Tony said he accused her of ‘ruining’ his 30th birthday.
He claimed he contacted the local council and the Home Office and told them they would try to rehouse him.
Tony and Lorna first moved to Sofia after applying to be part of the government’s refugee scheme because they wanted to help people fleeing war-torn Ukraine.

The couple were planning to visit Sofia’s family in Ukraine so that Tony could formally ask his father for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Tony says his relationship is over
But Tony grew impatient with how long the process was taking and joined Facebook groups where Ukrainians were looking for sponsors.
He contacted Sophia through a group and she arrived in the UK on May 4 to live in Bradford with him and Lorna and their daughters, aged three and six.
Tony said how they ‘just clicked’ and got on well immediately, partly because he can speak Slovak which is very similar to Ukrainian.
The two began to communicate in a language Lorna did not understand, watch TV after she went to bed, and regularly went to the gym with each other.
They both said that although they were ‘moving on with excellence’ at the time, ‘it was nothing more than that’ and they were ‘innocent’.
But they ‘found excuses to touch and brush each other’ and tensions arose in the house.
Tony said he would come home to a meal cooked by Sophia who would tell him ‘how lucky he was to have Lorna’.
Lorna was so exasperated by this situation that she finally asked Sophia to leave the family home ten days after she arrived.
But she was shocked when Tony told her: ‘If she’s going, I’m going’.
The new couple ended up finding their place with Tony’s parents and before beginning the process of applying for a permanent visa for Sofia.
Toni said at the time: ‘I’m so sorry for what Lorna is going through, it wasn’t her fault and she didn’t do anything wrong.’
Sophia added, ‘As soon as I saw him, I imagined him. It happened so fast but this is our love story. I know people will think bad of me but it happens. I could see how upset Tony was.’
After Tony had his vasectomy reversed, the couple talked about their hopes of eventually getting married and having children of their own.
‘I want to propose to this beautiful woman,’ he told MailOnline.
Sofia said, ‘We are planning a life together. I want to be a mother. I want to have a baby.
‘I’m a young woman so it can wait a few years and I hope Tony can reverse his vasectomy so we can be a family together.’
While their rocky relationship made headlines, Tony revealed that he had suffered a barrage of abuse on social media over his decision to leave his family home.
He also spoke of his hopes of starting a pop career after recording a rap about his experiences.
Tony insists that his relationship with Lorna was already on the rocks before he met Sophia.
A friend of Lorna’s told May how the now-single mother was ‘devastated’.
