Toyah & Robert Fripp

Engaged, 25th December 1985 

Even Toyah, swept along in this steamy romantic fervour, threw caution to the wind and ditched her live-in-lover of six years, Tom Taylor. All of a sudden she flew off to Canada to join her "hero", the very ancient 43 year old "egghead" rock star Robert Fripp, leaving her management to tell a rather surprised Tom the news. 

He was left the Ford Granada car but ordered out of their shared North London home, and no doubt spent a sorry Christmas house-hunting and crying into his  xmas-pud. Toyah, on the other hand, is reported to be jolly happy and "very much in love".
