Ben Foden’s wife Jackie Belanoff has joked that “he’s going to cheat on me” after her Rugby beau called his Dancing on Ice co-star Rachel Stevens “the sexiest woman in the world.”

Taking to Instagram, Jackie wrote: “Current mood: just getting so nervous by all the comments everyone's been making, you've all convinced me my husband's gonna cheat on me!!!"

“Hoping for him to get voted off those show Sunday so he doesn't have an affair with Rachel, please don't vote for him on Sunday,” she added.

"He's going to cheat on me if not already if he stays in! Thanks for all your concerns, you all just know your stuff!” the post continued.

"Thanks for being so vigilant and smart... in this day and age it's just wrong and stupid to have faith and trust in someone you love."

It came after Ben made a comment during an interview former S Club 7 star Rachel was giving to a reporter.

After being asked what she has over the other competitors on the show she replied: “Oh my goodness… You just go into it as yourself and take the opportunity to learn.

“It’s such a fun, amazing show. I just want to go in and do the best I can. Ultimately you have to bring yourself and have fun.

“You’re putting on a show. That’s what is so special. We’re all bringing something different and our own unique thing.”

Ben then interjected: “That – and you’re the sexiest woman in the world Rachel.”

The comment soon hit headlines, just days after his wife Jackie Belanoff swore that she was sure her Rugby player husband would never cheat on her.

“I don't care what anyone thinks of him. It makes me feel awful when people don't know how awesome he is,” the 36-year-old told OK! Magazine in a joint interview with her beau.

“But all his friends, family and people in his life know who he is and love him. I have the best person ever. I feel bad that he feels bad but it doesn't bother me."

Taking to Instagram, Ben clarified the story behind the seemingly bizarre comment.

Taking to his Instagram stories he said: “Just want to address something the red tops have been printing today about me referring to Rachel as the sexiest woman in the world.

“We were in an interview, and someone asked Rachel, ‘how do you carry around the weight of being the sexiest woman in the world? voted by FHM in 2005 or whatever.

“And then later on, another reporter asked Rachel ‘what do you have over other competitors in the competition?’ And obviously Rachel was very respectful and modest, and I threw in at the end ‘oh don’t forget you’re the sexiest woman in the world.'”

“Obviously they’ve taken that and written a headline, and made it something it’s absolutely not,” he added.

“Sorry Rach, my foot in my mouth as usual.”

He also added: “Obviously Jackie is my sexiest woman in the world, she gets my vote every time.”
