Bigamist ... Danielle Loxton
AN ex-husband outed his former wife as a serial bigamist — after she married his friend.
Steven Barker began to unravel shameless Danielle Loxton's secret when he tried to get a divorce — and he found out she was still married to her first husband.
Mr Barker finally blew the whistle on his still wed ex when she then later married his pal Stacey Porter.
Loxton was handed a suspended prison sentence after her double life was exposed.
The 37-year-old married her first husband, Peter Clarke, in 1994. They split up two years later but did not divorce.
In 1999 she married Mr Baker, who worked with her at Pontins in Southport, Merseyside. The relationship broke down and they divorced.
But Loxton went on to marry his friend Mr Porter, while still legally married to Mr Clarke.
Loxton admitted two charges of bigamy at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday and received a seven month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
In October this year, her Facebook status described her as "single".
When her crimes eventually came to light, Loxton still denied to police that she had married twice more while still married to her first husband.

Mr Baker, from Aspley, Notts, said: "She is a convincing, compulsive liar. I think she is a fraudster.
"She caused upset, heartache and stress. I believed everything she told me. She was very convincing.
"It was a happy marriage for the first two years. And then after that I wouldn't say it was happy. We had our problems."
Adrian Reynolds, defending Loxton, said she had taken steps to getting divorced — but ended up cutting corners.
He said: "Whatever the reasons for her behaviour, she hasn't done it for any financial motives. It is difficult to pinpoint anything she has gained from it.
"Her life seems to be a succession of failed relationships. It is just a bizarre case."
Loxton, who is on benefits, was ordered to pay court costs of £1,000 and will be supervised by the probation service for a year.
