"I wasn't scared — but he's a drugs counselor. What was I thinking?

"Then I was handed a load of crack. Barry was very frightened — that kind of messed everything up a bit really."

The marriage ended in 16 days and O’Connor said  "It felt like I was living in a coffin. It was going to be a coffin for both of us and I saw him crushed.

"The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man."

She accepted Herridge had been left "frightened" by her mad search for drugs on the night they were married.

Sinead says now she will never marry again and added: "I don't think I will even date anyone."
