Seventies pop heart-throb Leif Garrett hates watching new TV phenomenon DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES - because it breaks his heart witnessing his ex love Nicolette Sheridan kissing on screen.

The I WAS MADE FOR DANCING singer romanced the British-born actress when she was just 16 and subsequently left him devastated six years later when she ditched him.

And now the fallen pop star can't watch his ex because it brings back too many bad memories.

He says, "Our love was too passionate and tempestuous. She dumped me and broke my heart but she will always be the love of my life."

Garrett reveals Sheridan moved in with him and his mother when she was 16 - with the blessing of her actress mum SALLY ADAMS and her partner, late KOJAK star, Telly Savalas.

He adds, "We had an incredible, fantastic sex life. She was very athletic and coordinated, and we couldn't keep our hands off each other."
