The husband of a wedding planner, who disappeared alleging that she cheated thousands of pounds on couples, said he hoped "justice would be done" after her apparent arrest.
Dana Twidale, 42, of Hull, East Yorkshire, is being investigated by the police and the Action Fraud hotline for complaints from engaged couples, catering and event rental companies, and DJs.
A number of men in love, including their estranged husband Carl Twidale (45), also claim that the mother of four children cheated them out of large sums.

Mr. Twidale says he lost £ 4,000 and an applicant who met her through the Tinder dating app claims he gave her £ 10,000 for her mother's funeral – only to find out that her mother was still alive was.
Now the hairdresser has spoken to Mr. Twidale to tell how he thinks their seven-year relationship was "a big lie".
He said, "It made me realize that I didn't even know who she was or who I was when I was with her, and now it just feels like I woke up from a really long dream.
"I put on a brave face, but it's all just so emotional. I've lost seven years that I can't get back, and I often just sit there and start crying.
"Every now and then I remember a happy memory of our wedding day that puts a smile on my face, but that annoys me more because she wasn't really my wife, does it? I don't know who she was because everything she did was a lie.
"I don't want to be a martyr at all, I just want all of her victims to be fair, but people keep telling me that I am the greatest victim of all."

Mr. Twidale said the Humberside police called him on Saturday and said his wife was "arrested and detained".
But the group refused to comment "for privacy reasons" earlier this week, and it was not clear whether they were in the UK or Spain, where they were discovered three weeks ago.
The police later clarified MailOnline that the force would not confirm or refuse to arrest a designated person, according to the instructions from the College of Policing.
Ms. Twidale was photographed by a tourist who sunbathed and swimming with one of her children in a holiday complex in Benidorm.
Her husband had been trying to track her down since she disappeared from her rented house in the city six weeks ago.
He added Facebook groups across Europe and published pictures of her in the hope that someone would discover her.
Mr. Twidale said this allegedly led to her being arrested in Spain, with the images most likely being sent to him by someone in the Benidorm complex.
It is believed that Ms. Twidale fled with her second youngest child and Mr. Twidale has already asked his wife not to drag her into the chaos.

After the allegations of fraud surfaced, Mr. Twidale was shocked when he was approached by his wife's ex-boyfriend, who said she saw him at the same time as Mr. Twidale and claimed she had him over £ 10,000 deducted.
Mr. Twidale said: “Dana is the most amazing, fun-loving and contagious person there is, and I felt so special and happy to be with her because she is so attractive. I thought she was completely out of my league.

"All you are looking for in life is to meet that one person that you can grow old with, and I really thought I was on my feet with Dana and thought she was all I wanted from a partner because it was just amazing and was fun for a minute. but it was really all a lie.
"I have since found out from other men who have contacted me that it is only her MO to treat boys like this … and then move on to the next one, so I cannot believe that she ever really loved me."
A Facebook page titled "People Affected by Dana Twidale, Wedding Planner Help and Support" is full of posts from people who claim to have lost money.
Nigel Wainwright wrote: “I met her through Tinder and we went out a few times. She told me that her mother died in December and had rotten in a coffin.
"I paid for this funeral. All lies – her mother is alive and well. I just found out what a lying, wicked person she was last week. She skinned me for every penny I had. & # 39;

Mr. Twidale said he was shocked by the allegations. "It has affected dozens of people and stolen tens of thousands," he added. "My life was a lie."

The couple met at their cousin's funeral and lived together within a few weeks before marrying in 2014 after a six-month romance.
However, they separated two years ago. Even after the couple filed for divorce, the couple continued to meet and even tried to revive their relationship, with Mr. Twidale last seeing his estranged wife on July 14th.
He said, "When we tried to get back together and get things going again for Christmas, I later found out that she had sent a message to Nigel, a man she had met with, while she was was in bed with me, which really hurt.
"If I saw her, would I tell her why? Why me? I have so many questions that need to be answered.
& # 39; she had everything; a successful wedding business, a loving family and a good relationship. I have no idea why she did it. It doesn't make sense. & # 39;
After spitting in 2017, Ms. Twidale started a wedding planner business with a woman with clients across the UK. Couples claim that they received large sums but did nothing.
Nicky Thorpe, 32, who married in Harrogate, North Yorkshire last week, says she paid Ms. Twidale "well over £ 2,000" before realizing that she had been "cheated" on.
She says her ceremony only took place after a cry for help on local radio. Jade Savage said she was disappointed by Ms. Twidale ten days before her wedding in August.
She wrote on Facebook: “With the generosity of completely foreign people and the love and support of family and friends, our wedding day took place on Saturday.
"It turned out to be better than what it would have if this bad woman did it anyway."
In the course of the fraud investigation, Mr Twidale contacted the Humberside police, who informed him that Ms Twidale had been subjected to nine allegations of fraud.
Anyone affected should call the Humberside Police Department at number 101, as well as Action Fraud, who will also investigate alleged victims' allegations
