Uh-oh! Flip or Flop’s Christina El Moussa kicked off 2018 with a new man by her side — hunky British TV host Ant Anstead. Now, his ex-fling is revealing to Life & Style he may not be the man Christina thinks he is.

Life & Style has exclusively obtained text messages from a woman who claims she hooked up with the English car guru while he was married to his wife of 12 years, Louise (A rep for Ant denies the claims).

In late 2017, Ant, 38, announced that he and his wife Louise had quietly separated in July. A year before that, however, he was trading sexually explicit photos, direct messages and Skype calls with a sexy English blonde he met on social media, the woman exclusively tells Life & Style, until their five-month flirtation-turned-fling fizzled out in late 2016.

Ant started following the woman on Twitter in 2015, she claims: “He was 100 percent with his wife then. He kept liking things and pictures I was posting before we started direct messaging each other. It was all a bit flirty.”

Eventually, he suggested they meet for drinks at a London hotel. “He outright asked me if I was looking for something,” she says. (Early texts show that Ant told her he was married and asked if she was interested in “a fling.”) “He kissed me [that night], but that was about it. He was very concerned about being seen in public.”

After exchanging some X-rated messages, he invited the woman to a charity soccer game in which he was playing. There, she claims, things got hot and heavy: He pulled her into a private bathroom and she performed oral sex on him. “In the middle of it, his wife phoned and he panicked, so we stopped,” she says. “He’s very charming but has got a way of being quite manipulative. He can be hot and cold. Sometimes he’d make you feel really special, and then other times he’d act like a total d–k.”

“Christina is so not his type. Ant once told me he didn’t like reality TV people!” claims the woman, adding that she thinks Ant is in it for the fame and will cheat on Christina, 34, too. “A leopard,” she tells Life & Style, “doesn’t change its spots.”
