Frankie Bridge Opens Up About Her Husband Wayne’s Emotional Time In The Jungle


For anyone that’s been keeping up with I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, you’ll know that Wayne Bridge has been proving himself to be a lovely human and an utterly adorable husband.

The former professional footballer is married to one of our very own girl crushes, Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays. 

Wayne has been getting pretty emotional about being away from his lady and their two children. And now, his wifey has spoken out about what it’s been like to watch him from home.

Don't know about you… but I'm ready to watch @itvimacelebrity #teamwayne #ready #jungle #nomakeup #messyhair 🐍🕷

Cue the pulling of the heart strings.

Making an appearance via video call on the jungle spin-off show, I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp, Frankie confessed that she got teary watching him.

The 27-year-old told host Stacey Solomon,’It’s so nice everyone’s getting to know him.

‘I have seen him laugh so much and he’s been himself so I know he’s comfortable.

‘But obviously when he was upset I cried.’


Did she have any advice for him going into the jungle? Of course she did! ‘I told him to be himself. He’s a nice person. I told him it’s amazing what you’ll do when there’s a camera on you,’ she explained.

Frankie also revealed that her husband ‘hates being on camera.’

She continued, ‘That’s what he was most nervous about. He’s getting more comfortable now.’

Wayne got a great reaction from viewers when he was seen comforting Martin Roberts after he broke down in tears. Frankie said that this is totally like him, saying, ‘He hates it if anyone cries. I knew he would have hated that.

‘Everyone keeps texting me like, ‘your husband’s so sensitive’, I’m like ‘yeah you should have seen him on our wedding day’.’

This comes as rumours have started to circulate that Wayne’s ex wife, Vanessa Perroncel, might be on her way into the I’m A Celebrity jungle. Errr.

According to The Sun, sources alleged that she’s now angry that he’d denied the rumours he was going into the jungle.


Apparently, Vanessa was offered a place in the famous outback six years ago, and might just change her mind now…

Yup. We’re not really sure either.

But excuse us while we continue to enjoy this year’s amazing I’m A Celebrity line-up.
