If you’re a true crime fan, chances are you’re currently obsessing over all things Dirty John.
After meeting on an online dating site, Newport Beach-based businesswoman Debra soon moved in with John and less than two months later, they married in secret.
But unfortunately for the mother-of-four, John was not who he claimed to be.

Debra believed John was an anaesthetist, who had just returned from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders.
Instead, he turned out to be a compulsive liar, a manipulator and an incredibly well experienced con artist.
With thousands of people engrossed in the chilling drama, we decided to take a look at what some of the major characters in Dirty John look like in real life.
Here’s what we found.
Debra Newell (Connie Britton)
Debra Newell is portrayed in the show by Friday Night Lights and Nashville star Connie Britton.
In the 80s, Debra founded a successful interior design business called Ambrosia Interior Design (called Madeira on the show), which employed up to 50 people in its heyday.
At age 59, Debra met John on an over 50s online dating site.
Including her brief marriage to John, the Newport Beach-based businesswoman has been married a total of five times.
Since her relationship with John, however, Debra hasn't gone on a single date.
Debra also has four kids, who she raised in California's Orange County.
