Britain's "worst mum" Karen Matthews has reportedly fallen out with her fiancee over her obsession with Emmerdale star Jeff Hordley.
Paedophile partner Paul Saunders is understood to resent how she idolises Cain Dingle, played by Hordley, 40.
Matthews even has his face as her phone's screensaver along with the Emmerdale theme tune as her ringtone, reports the Sunday People.
Matthews, 44, kidnapped her own daughter Shannon in a bid to grab a £50,000 reward. She was jailed in 2009 and freed after three years.
Saunders, 57, a handyman, was jailed for five years in 2010 for sexually abusing a child. Now he is said to be upset that Matthews called Cain her “dream man”.

A source said: “Karen is a massive Emmerdale fan. If it’s on, no one is allowed to speak.
“Her and Paul are constantly bickering about her obsession with Cain. He hatesit because he’s a long away from looking like Cain Dingle.”
Matthews, 44, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, has horrified pals by moving Saunders into her one-bedroom flat in the south of England, where the taxpayer picks up her £650-a-month rent.
Her pal added: “People are turning their backs on her because of Saunders.

Matthews has told friends that she loves Saunders, that he is a “changed man” and they plan to marry this year.
Our source said: “She says she won’t get anyone else and that Saunders looks after her. But how can she have him near her?
"It’s disgusting. No one will want to witness them two getting hitched.”

Matthews speaks to old pals in Dewsbury regularly on the phone and on social media but she is legally banned from the town, where she let police and locals search for nine-year-old Shannon for 24 days. In fact her daughter was being kept out of sight in a flat.
Saunders admitted sexual activity with a girl beginning when she was 15, making indecent images of her and two counts of sexual assault.
