The Saturdays star Frankie Bridge has revealed her husband Wayne has cut all ties from his former football friends as “most of them are d***s”.
Mrs Bridge, who has two children with the former England footballer, has lifted the lid on her husband’s relationship with his one-time friends.
She told The Sun: “He’s not got any footballer mates. He doesn’t hang out with the other players. He doesn’t live that life.
“I suppose you could say about famous people, people in bands, most of them are d***s.”
But Mrs Bridge insisted her husband, who she has been married to since 2014, “isn’t like that”.
She added: “Anyone that meets Wayne just doesn’t dislike him. I’ve not met anyone that doesn’t like him, because he’s a good person.”
Defender Mr Bridge was caught up in a scandal a decade ago when it was claimed his team-mate, former Chelsea and England captain John Terry, slept with his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child Vanessa Perroncel after the pair split.
Both Terry and the French model denied the claims, but the scandal persisted and led to Mr Bridge refusing to shake hands with Terry when the pair played against each other following Mr Bridge’s £10million move to Manchester City in 2009.
Mr Bridge, who played for England 36 times, eventually retired in 2014 after stints at West Ham and Reading.
Mr Bridge and Terry played for Chelsea and England together for six years from 2003 as Chelsea won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and two League Cups.
But despite his decorated career, Mr Bridge now appears to have put his footballing past firmly behind him.
He took part in I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016, and now dedicates his time to being a dad to his children with the Saturdays star, Parker, six, and four-year-old Carter.
