Denise Van Outen's fiance Eddie Boxshall 'sacked from city firm' over 'plot to steal customers'
Eddie Boxshall, 45, was dismissed by SCB & Associates for "gross misconduct and material dishonesty", a tribunal heard last week.
He had proposed to Denise just weeks before.
Eddie is accused of sending hundreds of emails containing clients’ details to his private email account.
He had earned £110,000 a year buying and selling stocks of oil.
Ruth Stone, SCB’s lawyer, said he was acting "suspiciously" after agreeing to go on three-month gardening leave.
She said: "As there was a significant possibility of Mr Boxshall shortly leaving the company’s employment and Mr Boxshall had been acting suspiciously in the office, Mr Emanuelsson and I were mindful of the risk that Mr Boxshall might seek to appropriate the company’s confidential information and subsequently use it to compete against the company."
She said her suspicions were heightened when he formed his new company Black Gold Energy Ltd.
But he protested: "I regularly sent myself work-related material to my personal email address so I could review this information in my own spare time.
Denise previously revealed Essex boy Eddie is desperate to have a baby with her.
The presenter and actress says she wishes she had started a family at a younger age – and worries she's missed the boat.
