She is the UK’s most jealous woman and has been diagnosed with Othello syndrome, a psychiatric disorder which causes delusional jealousy. Debbi also checks his emails, phone,and bank accounts a few times a day , looking for evidence of an affair which (so far) has never happened.

She said: “I get so worried that he’s been eyeing up the shop assistant that I just have to know the truth. I think he’s gorgeous but that’s not the issue – it’s about whether or not I can trust him not to look at women while he is out on his own. I don’t want him thinking they’re hot.”

Her fiancee is not even allowed to watch and TV programme featuring any women. This includes the Weakest Link, because of Anne Robinson!

Mr Wood, 30, admits he is willing to put up with it, saying: “Sometimes I get nervous and the lie detector test results come back inconclusive because my heart is hammering, which makes Debbi doubt me. I’m willing to put up with it because I know we’re soulmates.”
