Maddie Durdant-Hollamby: Man who killed 'beautiful' dancer had 'hundreds of lovers' & boasted 'I always get what I want'

A MARKETING director who stabbed his "beautiful" dancer girlfriend had "hundreds of lovers" and would boast "I always get what I want".

Ben Green, 41, bragged to friends of bedding hundreds of lovers — many in their teens — in rented houses across the country.

Former friends of the marketing director said that he would always brag that he would "get what he wants" and treat women like his "property".

He is thought to have been dating his victim — marketing executive Maddie Durdant-Hollamby, 22 — for around a year after meeting her at work.

Police believe he killed her last Friday at his home in Kettering, Northants, before taking his own life in the property. 

The bodies were discovered shortly after 1pm following a report of concern for her welfare.

It is understood they had discussed splitting up.

A former pal said of Green: “It was chilling the way he always said he would get what he wanted. He treated women as his property.

"Ben liked women much younger than him. 

“He had zero respect for his conquests and would be so rude to them."

The former friend added: "I knew him for a year and there would be hundreds of women in that time. I have never known anything like it.

"He would be having sex with eight women at the same time while married with kids."

He added that Green, who was a "monster and a woman-hating sex addict” would rent homes across the country to sleep with women.

Preliminary post-mortem reports show Maddie – who worked as a marketing executive – died of stab wounds, and Green of self-inflicted knife wounds, Northamptonshire Police have revealed.

Police says her death is being treated by detectives as murder, and no-one else is being sought in connection with the incident.

Maddie was originally from Wimblington in Cambridgeshire, where dad Steve, 48, and mum Rachel, 47, still live.

In a tribute, her parents said: “Maddie was a kind, caring, and thoughtful young woman, who touched the lives of everyone she met.”


Maddie's mum Rachel paid tribute to her late daughter who had " grown her own set of wings and gone to fly with the angels."

"Baby girl… you were our world and our lives are not complete without you in it. Heaven is so lucky to have you," she wrote in a Facebook post.

In a statement issued through police, her family said they were "absolutely devastated at the loss of Maddie, our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter and niece".

"Our hearts are broken and we cannot begin to imagine life without her. The shock and pain we are feeling is indescribable," they said.

"She was a beautiful person both inside and out, who loved nothing more than spending time with her family and friends.

"Maddie was a kind, caring, thoughtful young woman, who touched the lives of everyone she met.

"A talented dancer, her creative talent continued through school and into her career in marketing. Her life has been sadly cut short just as her career was blossoming.

"Our thoughts are with everybody who knew and loved Maddie as much as we did."

  • If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
