Bangers and Cashs Derek Mathewson leaves wife for co-star 26 years his junior

Bangers and Cash star Derek Mathewson has reportedly left his wife after falling for a female colleague 26 years younger than him.

The 71-year-old TV personality has become a fan favourite amongst viewers of the family-run car auction series which airs on the Yesterday Channel.

He has thought to have split from wife Sue after growing close to Vicki Ivens, 45.

Vicki worked in the office at Mathewsons and has appeared in a number of episodes of the popular TV show, like Sue.

Behind the cameras, Sue has reportedly given Vicki her marching orders after discovering phone bills appearing to confirm her blossoming friendship with Derek.

Vicki has reportedly left Nicholas, her husband of 20 years, and is believed to now be working at Flamingo Land.

A source told The Sun: "Vicki told her husband in September last year that she was in love with Derek. She said it was as friends — like a dad thing.

But last month, Sue turned up at Nicholas' house with a list of phone numbers. He checked his bill and there were about 180 calls between them in three weeks."

The insider went on to reveal that Nicholas confronted Vicki, who is said to be glad that she didn't have to lie anymore.

Vicki and Nicholas have reportedly since divorced and Sue is thought to be thinking of doing the same.

Daily Star has approached Derek's representatives for a comment.

Speaking about his love of his car business previously, Derek said: "A lot of people can’t live without this or that, but we have so many cars coming through here, and I get my fix from many different things.

"I know I’m very lucky. I’m living my dream and what I know is a dream for many people."
