Maeva D'Ascanio is facing fresh heartache after discovering boyfriend James Taylor kissed another woman behind her back, OK! can reveal.
The Made in Chelsea couple's future was thrown into doubt after James, 27, was filmed being unfaithful while out partying at nightclub Raffles – just weeks before he brutally rejected Maeva's marriage proposal.
In yet to be aired scenes of the E4 series, Maeva, 29, is left devastated after learning of James's infidelity, spoiling their chances of settling down and starting a family together.
"This was the very last thing Maeva wanted," a source told OK!
"She was left humiliated by James after he said no to her proposal, but she's since had to discover much worse.
"For Maeva, the timing was awful; while she planned a romantic proposal, James was kissing someone else and keeping it a secret from her. She only learned the truth when a video of James from the night he cheated resurfaced.
"James admits that it was a huge drunken mistake; he loves Maeva and will do anything it takes to win her back, but it all depends on whether he can prove he's trustworthy."
Maeva asked James to marry her after growing impatient waiting for him to pop the question, deciding to take matters into her own hands.
Turning her down, James insisted he wasn't ready for the commitment and would propose to Maeva in his own time. He has since bought an engagement ring.
The couple's two-year relationship hasn't always been smooth sailing and they briefly split in 2021 after Maeva admitted to being unhappy.
During their time apart, Maeva propositioned ex-boyfriend and fellow co-star Miles Nazaire, asking him: "Do you want to have sex with me?"
After years of waiting for James to propose, Maeva finally decided that she was going to pop the question herself.
However, when she finally got down on one knee and proposed, James’ response took her by surprise.
James heartbreakingly said: “I can’t say yes, this is silly. Never in a million years would I let you propose to me. Why did you think that was a good idea?”
James’ jaw dropping rejection left Maeva feeling humiliated and she stormed off in tears.
In an exclusive interview with OK! last Novemebr, fiery French beauty Maeva revealed that she has already met with a wedding planner and admitted she knows exactly how she wants her big day with James to go down.
"I’ve already had a meeting with a wedding planner," Maeva revealed. "When she saw me she said it’s the first time she’s seen someone who is planning her wedding and she’s not engaged yet.
"It’s always good to plan, you know! I’ve planned it all already."
