The father-of-two, 29, who dumped his partner of 10 years for his Ukrainian refugee girlfriend, has been pictured with the 22-year-old after they moved into his parents’ home.
Security guard Tony Garnett can be seen embracing his lover Sofiia Karkadym after she moved into the long-term couple’s home for 10 days, having fled war-torn Lviv.
Mr Garnett who lives in Bradford, West Yorkshire, said he has fallen in love with Sofiia and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.
And Sofiia, who fled the city in western Ukraine, said she ‘fancied’ Tony as soon as she saw him and that the pair are living their very own ‘love story’.
The new couple are now living with Tony’s mother and father, although they are looking at properties to move into.

Yesterday, jilted mother Lorna Garnett shared her anger after she let the Ukrainian woman into her home.
Lorna says she was left heartbroken after her partner decided to leave her for Sofiia.
Speaking to the Sun on Sunday, Lorna said she believes Sofiia ‘set her sights on Anthony from the start, decided she wanted him and she took him’.
She added: ‘She didn’t care about the devastation that was left behind. Everything I knew has been turned on its head in the space of two weeks.’
Lorna told the newspaper she had reservations about the scheme but felt it was the right thing to do after seeing the ‘terrifying’ situation in Ukraine on the news.

‘And this is how Sofiia has repaid me for giving her a home.’
