Andy Carroll’s fiancée Billi Mucklow has reportedly wiped him from her WhatsApp profile after he was pictured asleep next to a blonde barmaid in Dubai.
The former TOWIE star, 34, is said to have replaced a snap of them together with a photo of just their children after his damning photo became public.
According to The Sun, Billi fled the couple’s Essex home on Saturday and is now struggling to decide what to do next.
Claims: Andy Carroll’s fiancée Billi Mucklow has reportedly wiped him from her WhatsApp profile after he was pictured asleep next to a blonde barmaid in Dubai
The publication reports that Billi is demanding Andy, 33, ‘hand over everything’ in relation to the pictures before their wedding.
They also added that Billi wants to see every single image from the night in question to fully understand what happened.
A friend said: ‘It’s the only way she can move on — however bad it is.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Billi Mucklow for comment.

The couple had announced their engagement in November 2014, after Andy had popped the question during a romantic mini-break in Rome, Italy.
Earlier this month, Billi and her female friends jetted to Dubai for her hen-do, which was ‘gate-grached’ by her fiancé after he arrived in the UAE towards the end of her girls’ trip.
The delighted wife-to-be shared a happy snap of the pair as they enjoyed dinner, while renaming her Hen Party a ‘STEN do’.
However, on Wednesday, Andy was pictured sleeping next to with a blonde beauty Taylor Jane Wilkey, while in Dubai on his stag-do, which followed on from the ‘STEN’ celebrations.
Photographs show the recently released West Brom forward – who at the time of his transfer to Liverpool was a British record signing – passed out on a bed beside the 27-year-old bar manager.

Others show Taylor wearing the father-of-four’s personalised bathrobe with ‘Andy Carroll’ embroidered on the chest.
The bar manager, who says the pictures were leaked on Snapchat after she sent them to her friends back in the UK, insists nothing sexual happened with the 6ft4in forward. ‘It was all just a bit of entirely innocent fun,’ she told The Sun.
However friends of Andy and Billi told the paper the pictures were ’embarrassing’ so close to their wedding, which is set to take place in just two weeks after an eight year engagement.
According to The Sun, Andy was partying at the Cove Beach club with Taylor when he invited her and a female friend to his hotel suite for an afterparty.
She told the Sun: ‘It was an afterparty. We all went back to his hotel.
‘I didn’t sleep with him, it wasn’t like that, there was three of us in the room.’

Taylor, from Scarborough, North Yorkshire, but who now works in Dubai as a bar manager at a high-end hotel, described her time with Carroll as ‘really boozy’ and said the striker was ‘steaming drunk’.
At the beginning of May, Andy shared his excitement for the wedding with a romantic image of him cuddling Ms Mucklow.
He captioned it: ‘When You Have The One No Matter What Happens!! #5weeks ❤️ @billimucklow’.
With his towering frame, Andy, had already established himself as a talented striker for boyhood club Newcastle United before confirming his relationship with TV personality Billi, 34, in 2014.
Billi found fame on reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex in 2011, but quit reality TV two years later to run a Bikram yoga studio in Essex.
Long-term: Andy has been loved up with Billi for nine years, with the pair getting engaged in 2014 and finally preparing to tie the knot next month
She started dating the Geordie footballer in the summer of 2013 but they kept their relationship under wraps until the following February.
It would prove to be a transformative period for the footballer – by then on loan at London club West Ham United after moving from Newcastle to Liverpool in a £35million deal.
With Billi’s stabilising influence playing a significant role, the boozy off-field antics that threatened to overshadow a career already hampered by a catalogue of injuries were curtailed.
Indeed, the nightclub brawls, boozy nights out and off field assault allegations soon became consigned to memory as Andy underwent something of a rebrand – a change owed in no small part to his partner.
He even followed his partner’s lead by taking up yoga, and speaking in 2019 the footballer credited Billi for helping him change his lifestyle.
‘I’ve got no doubt that I was daft when I was here, and no doubt that I was daft for a couple of years after as well,’ he told nufc.co.uk.

‘But I met my missus, and we’ve got four kids living at home now, we’ve got animals, we’ve got responsibilities. There’s no more behaviour like it was, you know. I was stupid, I was young, and I was carried away with the lifestyle that I had.
‘Now it’s completely different. I’m actually a dad, I’ve grown up, and got responsibilities, so… I’ve got a purpose.’
Billi and Andy welcomed the first of their two children together, son Arlo, now six, in June 2015, with the couple confirming the news on social media shortly afterwards.
Their second child as a couple, son Wolf, arrived two years later in November 2017, making Andy – already a parent to daughter Emilie, 11, and son Lucas, nine, from a former relationship – a father-of-four.
It would be Billi’s third child. The former TOWIE star also shares daughter Penelope Blu with ex-boyfriend Daniel Harris.
A timeline of Andy and Billi’s ‘STEN do’
Wednesday, May 18: Billi and her friends travel to Heathrow to fly out to Dubai. As previously reported by MailOnline, Billi leaves without two of her hen party because one of her closest friends is deemed unfit to fly after consuming too much alcohol.
Sunday, May 22: Billi posts a number of images of her in Dubai on her Instagram, including one in a green top enjoying a drink from a cup with the words ‘Mrs Carroll’ on the side. Her and her hen party share a snap by the pool of them all wearing white shirts with the words ‘drunk in love’ written on the backs. Carroll, fresh from his release by West Bromwich Albion, arrives in Dubai with a group of around 15 friends, reportedly including Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett and goalkeeper Mark Gillespie.
Monday, May 23: Billi posts a photograph of her and her husband to be together in Dubai. ‘STEN – Hen Party Crasher @andytcarroll,’ Billi captioned the snap, showing her in a polkadot dress and him in a black shirt. She later shares images of herself at the airport, grabbing food before flying home to the UK. Photographs show Billi arriving at Heathrow on Monday.
Wednesday, May 23: Andy, who is staying at the £500-a-night Hotel Fairmont, parties at a club on Cove Beach with others including a hotel bar manager – Taylor Jane Wilkey. She later tells The Sun that after a ‘really boozy’ day, she and a female friend went back to his hotel. She takes photographs inside the hotel, which she says were sent back to friends in the UK and leaked. She tells The Sun that nothing happened between them, but friends close to Billi and Carroll describe the photographs as ’embarrassing’.
