A dating guru has revealed the very unique way she caught a cheating boyfriend: by tracking his FitBit activity.
Nadia Essex, a former British reality star who featured as an expert on the show Celebs Gone Dating, took to TikTok to share her story in a now-viral video, revealing how she busted her former partner being unfaithful to her during a night out with his friends.
Responding to a fellow user who asked people to reveal ‘the moment you knew your relationship was over,’ Nadia, 39, explained that her boyfriend had gone out without her, and in the morning, she received a very suspicious notification from their synced fitness trackers that he had burned 500 calories ‘between 2am and 3am’.

What? Nadia Essex, 39, revealed in a now-viral TikTok video that she caught her ex-boyfriend cheating on her via his FitBit
Story time: In the clip, the mother-of-one revealed her now-ex-boyfriend had been out with his friends the night before when she went to make him breakfast in the morning
‘Oh honey, I’ve got a doozy,’ she began. ‘So when my ex-boyfriend came home from a night out, I woke up in the morning and thought, “Let me make him some breakfast.”
‘I got a notification on my FitBit – the FitBit that we had synced together – that between 2 o’clock and 3 o’clock in the morning, last morning, he had burned over 500 calories.’
Nadia did not explicitly say whether she had asked him about how those calories had been burned; however, she made it very clear exactly what she thought about the situation – suggesting that the boyfriend had been ‘exercising’ while in bed with another woman.
‘I shoved that breakfast where the sun don’t shine, darling,’ she concluded the clip, which has quickly gone viral, racking up more than 400,000 views – and plenty of comments from entertained viewers.
Now that’s suspicious! She then got a notification from their synced FitBits that informed her he had ‘burned 500 calories between 2am and 3am’

Many commenters were stunned by Nadia’s story and felt awful that she had to go through that, with one person writing: ‘Omg this one made my heart actually sink.’
Others joked that they were definitely going to buy FitBits – one for them and one for their partner – now that they know the fitness tracker can also detect cheating.
‘Buy FitBit and sync to his,’ one TikToker commented, sharing writing emoji to show she was taking notes.
‘Noted: get a synced fit bit,’ someone else said, while another shared: ‘I’ve been in 2 minds about getting a fitbit, guess who’s on her way to get one ASAP.’
A few people suggested Nadia’s ex may have just been dancing at a club when he worked off all those calories, but she put that theory to rest.

Look of love: Nadia has since moved on, and now she is a mom. She welcomed her first child, a son named Ezekiel Michael Essex, last March
‘He wishes that was what it was,’ she responded.
Viewers were also taken aback by her former partner’s stamina and found it hard to believe he burned 500 calories in the bedroom.
‘Where the hell I am going wrong. 10 minutes and done,’ one woman commented, while another joked: ‘Activity trackers always overestimating the amount of calories burned.’
‘For an hour? Do they even last that long anymore?’ someone else asked, prompting another response from the television personality, who noted that ‘this was a few years back to be fair.’
Nadia has since moved on, and now she is a mom. She welcomed her first child, a son named Ezekiel Michael Essex, last March.
The mom has yet to reveal the name of her son’s father, only sharing that he lives in the US and they are longer together.
