I'm A Celebrity's Frankie Bridge reveals real reason she played hard to get with Wayne

FRANKIE Bridge played hard to get with partner Wayne because she assumed the fact he was a footballer meant he was “bad news”.

But the I’m A Celeb star said she quickly realised the former England soccer star was in fact the one and her “knight in shining armour.”


Revealing how the pair met through mutual friends Frankie – who is tipped to win I’m A Celeb – said: “After a few weeks of blowing him off – he was a footballer, I just assumed he was bad news – I got in touch. We agreed to go for a meal. I turned up 45 minutes late, but he didn’t seem to mind and we had an amazing time, chatting until the restaurant closed.

“I felt we had a lot in common, in that we’d both worked from a young age and committed most of our lives to our careers. We just clicked.”

Looking back, the Londoner said that things were never plain sailing for the pair but that her and Wayne fought for each other.

She says they both came with their own baggage and insecurities from past relationships and it took some time for them to break down barriers and “figure out what the other needs.”

Frankie, writing in her memoir Open, added : “For instance, Wayne found it really hard to tell me he loved me for a really long time. He used to say ‘I hate you’ instead, but we both knew what he really meant, though.

“I was happy to wait for him to decide in his own time when he was able to actually say ‘I love you’ because I already knew he did. That’s how I knew he was someone special. He turned out to be my knight in shining armour.”

Our story comes days after the Sun revealed how Wayne loves one part of her body – her butt – that she’s paid for a cast to be made of it for him.

The Saturdays star, 32, told campmates she then gave the sculpture to Wayne, 41, as a present.

Chatting around the campfire, the mum of two said: "He always used to be like, 'I just want a cast of your a**e ' so one year I was like, 'That's what you're getting.'

"We have it up on the wall, it's upstairs. I forget sometimes and I remember I was doing a Zoom and everyone online was like, 'Is that your bum in the background?'"

Super fit Frankie has launched her own exercise, nutrition and wellbeing programme on fitness app Results Wellness Lifestyle.
