A mother who lived a lavish lifestyle as part of her ex-husband’s $270,000 Bunnings fraud has moved on from her jailed former lover and fallen for a personal trainer.

Tania Leonard, 41, found a new flame after she and her ex-husband Andrew Alasdair Ryan, 47, were exposed for swindling the warehouse chain.

The couple were both convicted of fraud, stealing and possessing tainted property charges at Brisbane’s District Court last Wednesday.

Leonard and Ryan used their ill-gotten gains to live in a ‘mansion’ in Tamborine, Queensland, also buying their daughter a $50,000 equestrian horse by scamming two friends, the court heard.

Ryan – the mastermind of a three-year plot which on-sold or got a cash refund for stolen Bunnings goods – was jailed but Leonard walked free for playing a lesser role.

And while on bail, Leonard found new love in the form of a local personal trainer, Marcus Fuller.

‘Little arm workout today with the missus,’ Mr Fuller captioned one gym photo of the athletic pair.
