Wayne Bridge Confuses Everyone With A Conversation Surrounding ‘Cheating’

The former footballer caused a bit of a stir on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. And we can't imagine what his wife Frankie thought...

We’re sure you’ll agree that Wayne Bridge was a brilliant addition to this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. 

The former footballer proved himself to be incredibly down-to-earth, never fearing to open up about his home life or to show his emotions – leaving us all swooning and tearing up in equal measure.

But there was one comment – which, we admit, totally went over our heads at the time – which left many people confused.


The 36-year-old raised quite the number of eyebrows when the camp’s conversation turned to the subject of infidelity. According to Now, when contestants were asked about what percentage of men believe that sending a naked selfie is cheating (err, is this actually a debated topic?), Wayne replied: ‘It’s not actually cheating, is it?’


Natch, Twitter had quite a bit to say on the subject too, largely because of the fact that OF COURSE IT IS.

We’re sure that Wayne was just innocently posing the question for his fellow campers, but that didn’t stop fans from reacting.

One tweet read: ‘Err Wayne, I think Frankie might have something to say about that!’

Wayne’s wife Frankie kept schtum on the topic, but she did post a particularly cryptic Instagram following the airing of the conversation, after admitting that she was having trouble sleeping.

Of course, this could have been totally unrelated, but it didn’t fail to get the internet talking nonetheless.

‘Couldn’t sleep. So watched all my @bbcstrictly dances back… they make me happy,’ she tweeted.

A few days later, The Saturdays singer shared a photograph of a checklist, along with the words:  ‘5 things to quit… right now people! … easier said than done. But worth a try! #quotes #try #imanoverthinker in fact #alloftheabove.’

The star previously opened up to Now about her struggles with anxiety, so we were really hoping that she was okay with her husband being so far away.

Now that the show’s over, they’ve been reunited, and Frank’ has wasted no time in sharing some photos from the wrap party. And what an ADORBS couple they are.

Great to see you guys together again!
