Malin Andersson stepped out for an alfresco lunch with a female pal on Saturday after dumping her new beau when she found out he had a secret pregnant girlfriend.
The Love Island star, 28, put on a brave face as she enjoyed drinks near her Cambridgeshire home after taking to her Instagram to say she feels ‘used’ after her short-lived romance with Michael Sadler, 35, came to an end.
Speaking on Friday night on her Story she said: ‘I’ve gone through a lot of s**t in my life, a lot of heartbreak, pain and trauma and when you let your guard down and trust someone it isn’t always like that.

‘In this industry I can feel used a lot, it comes with friends and other people who want a bit of it and it actually bothers me, it upsets me the using part.
‘I just want an easy break, all I’ve ever wanted is just to be happy and find someone and settle down but sometimes when we’re looking for it it doesn’t happen like that.
‘I’m here to tell you to put yourself first and follow your intuition. I feel like a piece of s**t really but I’ll be fine I always am and men are trash!’

Malin revealed she had dumped her tattooed-faced beau after having a heart-to-heart with his secret girlfriend, who revealed she’s expecting his fifth child.
The devastated star ended her 18-month romance with Michael after his partner of seven-years Rebecca Barr, 38, contacted her to reveal he has four children and one that’s due in August.

Malin, who was photographed on MailOnline this week holding hands with Michael, was clueless her boyfriend had been hiding a secret life for months.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Rebecca warned Malin to stay away from Michael, who she branded a serial liar.
She said: ‘I am just terrified at the level of narcissism, the lies, and everything that’s happened.
Sad: She continued: ‘In this industry I can feel used a lot, it comes with friends and other people who want a bit of it and it actually bothers me, it upsets me the using part’
‘I spoke with Malin last night, it’s really quite disturbing. He caught Malin at a vulnerable time.
‘To everyone else he’s so lovely, but he needs to be exposed. In my soul I cannot let another women go through what I’ve been through for seven years.
‘I really feel like I need to speak my truth in whatever sense that needs to work but I’m just so worried about his motives. I don’t think she’s the first Love Island star he targeted.’
As well the baby they’re expecting in August, Rebecca and Michael share son Luciano, two, and he also has three other children from a previous relationship.

It is understood Michael did not tell Malin about any of his offspring during their time together.
It’s believed the pair first met when Michael reached out to Malin claiming to be a ‘security professional’ shortly after her ex Tom Kemp was sentenced to 10 months in prison.
But Rebecca alleges that Michael lied about his job as a bodyguard when in reality he’s a guard at a car park.
She claimed: ‘She didn’t even know he has children – he has five children, I’m pregnant with baby number five, we’ve got one together and he’s got three from a previous relationship.

‘Malin said he initiated contact about 18 months ago when her ex went to prison under the guise of being a concerned security professional and apparently they’ve been talking for 18 months but I didn’t know anything about it.
‘He’s not a close protection officer and his name is not Michael James, it’s Michael Sadler. He told Malin he’s Italian and he’s not – it’s all an absolute lie, everything from start to finish.
‘When he says he’s a close protection officer, he’s a static guard for a car park and a doorman but he’s never actually done any level of close protection, ever.
‘He’s technically qualified; he got his license a couple of years ago but he’s never had the opportunity to do it.’
Pals close to Malin say she’s heartbroken and can’t quite believe Michael never told the truth about being a father and she’s looking to draw a line under it and move on.

But Michael is determined to win her back, telling MailOnline: ‘I love Malin to bits.’
A source close to Malin confirmed: ‘Michael has been living a secret life for months. Malin had absolutely no idea she was being lied to.
‘She has fully cut ties with Michael and blocked him on Instagram. She doesn’t want anything to do with him.’
Rebecca’s conversation with Malin was sparked by MailOnline’s pictures of them on a date together this week.

According to Rebecca, Michael claimed he was going to work on Tuesday night but it later emerged he had been with Malin at a restaurant in Essex.
Rebecca said: ‘He told me he was doing a night shift on Tuesday and obviously that’s when he went out with Malin.
‘He got back here at 11/12 and we spent the next day together and we were going to have a proper chat about everything but then I saw the article.
‘There was not an ounce of remorse or shame.’
Rebecca claims Michael got his face tattooed to strike fear into people, alleging he loves to ‘shock and scare.’
Suffered: Malin’s ex Tom Kemp was imprisoned last September after he admitted to assaulting the reality star, which left her with a broken her hand (pictured 2019)
She said: ‘He got them done while we were together. It’s a mask.
‘He loves the element of fear it gives people that they don’t approach him, it intimidates them, he loves to shock and scare people but it’s a persona.
‘He didn’t have them up until a couple of years ago. He’s insecure and a pathetic person. He’s constantly in the mirror like ‘babe how do I look?’ He adopts all of these personas.
‘Now he’s American army and he really identifies with that but prior to that it was like Peaky Blinders, and really buying into that gangster mentality even though he has no affiliation with anything.’
Malin’s ex Tom was imprisoned last September after he admitted to assaulting the reality star, which left her with a broken her hand.
Tom was released in December after three months and will serve the rest of his term on Home Detention Curfew.
