The mum-of-three reveals how hard family life has been during the Channel 5 show...
Danielle Lloyd took to the This Morning sofa today, opening up about her former relationship with Jamie O’Hara, who’s currently appearing on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother.
The 33-year-old has previously spoken out about the horrific trolling that she’s been experiencing on social media ever since her ex husband entered the CBB house, explaining that she’s been suffering with anxiety as a result.
Now, the mum-of-three has opened up about the effect that Jamie’s time in the reality gameshow is having on her family.
Danielle explained, ‘He’s in there not understanding what he’s saying and the impact its having on me and the children’s lives.’
The model – who shares sons Archie, 6, Harry, 5, and George, 2, with her former husband – continued: ‘Archie goes to school and people are saying “look what your dad said about your mum last night” it’s not nice.’
The pair divorced back in 2014 after allegations of ‘cheating’ surfaced, and Danielle is now happily engaged to her new partner.
During his time on the show, Jamie has hinted that he’s paying out a lot of money to his ex, insinuating that it’s draining him.
Danielle clarified, ‘He does pay for the mortgage on the house, which is a lot of money, but that was the court’s decision. It is where his children live.
‘It’s been up for sale for 4 years which I know is a financial burden. But it’s not the case I’m after a life of luxury.’
Discussing her career, she insisted: ‘I earned a lot more when we met. I pay my own way.’
Presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield also asked her about one of the talked-about moments on the show; when Jamie’s football career was referred to in the past tense.
She said, ‘I know Jamie and I know that will have really hurt him because we’ve had many conversations, and when he’s been injured and stuff it’s been really hard for him.
‘He has had depression in the past because of it. I know him as a footballer and all he wants to do is play football. It’s his profession.
‘I just don’t understand why he’s blaming me for it. It’s not my fault.’
Viewers took to social media to discuss the interview, and a few of them weren’t too impressed with her appearance.
Reactions included: ‘I don’t see Danielle’s logic here. She’s on #ThisMorning talking about Jamie because he has been speaking about her on #CBB’, ‘How much of an attention seeker is Danielle Lloyd going on #thismorning moaning about Jamie speaking about her on #cbb’ and ‘So Danielle Lloyd goes on #ThisMorning to complain about Jamie talking about her…by talking about him?!?!?!?!?’
However, others praised her bravery, with tweets including:
Whichever way you look at it, divorce is never easy. And we wish the family all the best.
