A spurned local wife has put her £2,000 wedding dress up for sale on eBay - to pay for the divorce from her "cheating husband."

Samantha Wragg, 28, from Chesterfield, wore the ivory 'art deco' dress on her wedding day in 2014 but she claims that her groom 'ran off' with another woman soon after they tied the knot.

According to the Daily Mail, the blogger has put the size 6 designer gown up for a starting price of £500 on the auction website with a description taking a swipe at the alleged exploits of her soon-to-be ex husband, who she says left her footing the bill for a divorce.

Writing on the auction website she wrote: '"Sorry that there are only two pictures but when I found out my husband was living with another woman, I pretty much burned/permanently deleted everything with his disgusting face on it.

"If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you!

She added: "Hope this dress brings you a lot more happiness than it brought me in the end and if not...well, you can always sell it on here!"

The dress is strapless, with a long lace train and has been altered to fit Samantha's petite frame so would be 'perfect for someone who is 5ft or under with heels and is looking to save some money on a dress," she said.

In a final dig, she added: 'If you've got any questions - either about the dress or the skank that my husband ran off with - then please feel free to contact me!'

The Art Couture dress - which she says needs dry cleaning to get rid of the "stench of betrayal" has now attracted bids in excess of £13,000.
