Wayne Bridge to open up about John Terry feud on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here
Wayne Bridge is expected to open up about his feud with John Terry on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here'.
The footballers are said to have fallen out ever since John allegedly had an affair with Wayne's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel in 2010 and Wayne subsequently refused to shake John's hand when they played in a match against each other.
He told The Sun newspaper: "This whole thing is so different for me. I have never really put myself out there publicly before.
"People either say that I am famous for playing football or some might say I am famous for not shaking someone's hand but I would like people to get to know me for who I am."
Meanwhile, producers are hopeful Wayne - who is married to The Saturdays star Frankie Bridge and has three-year-old son Parker and Carter, 14 months, with the singer and Jaydon, nine, with Vanessa - will feel comfortable to discuss the topic with his campmates.
A source said: "Wayne never really sought fame when he was a footballer so it's surprising he agreed to go in the jungle. But ITV believe they've made a real coup getting him on board as he's never discussed the John Terry scandal before. They're secretly hoping the subject crops up during while the celebs talk endlessly around the camp fire to pass time."
And Carol Vorderman is also looking forward to heading into the jungle.
She said: "Now I am a menopausal Mama, I am having the time of my life. I am doing a lot more adventurous stuff and it's the sense of adventure that I love about this show. It's a very free time in my life.
"I know people will ask 'why does Carol need to do this?' But I have never paid attention to what others think. I make my own decisions. I like the show and want to do it. I have been watching the show for years and have laughed so much. It is so funny."
'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' hits screens on Sunday November 13 on ITV.
