A British mum-of-nine who abandoned her husband for her young Gambian boyfriend converts to Islam so she can marry him
A British mum-of-nine who dumped her husband of 23 years for a young Gambian man she met online has converted to Islam so they can get married.
Heidi Hepworth, 45, now wears a hijab and prays to Allah every day as she prepares for her wedding with her taxi driver boyfriend, Mamadou Salieu Jallow, 31. Heidi said she proposed to her Gambian boyfriend and he accepted.
They are planning to have the wedding in a mosque in Gambia, a nation that is predominantly Muslim and which Heidi says is "a happier and more caring place than Britain".
