Wayne famously refused to shake John Terry’s hand after it was alleged the former England captain and his ex-girlfriend had an affair

Helen Wood has blasted I’m a Celebrity contestant Wayne Bridge just days into the latest series hitting TV screens.

The former escort wasn’t pulling any punches as she gave her verdict on the retired footballer’s first days in camp.

Before heading into the jungle, Wayne admitted he was best known for refusing to shake John Terry’s hand after the former England captain allegedly had an affair with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel, the mother of Wayne’s then three-year-old son.

He said he hoped his stint Down Under would help people learn more about him.

This whole thing is so different for me. I have never really put myself out there publicly before,” the dad-of-three shared.

“People either say ‘I am famous for playing football’ or some might say ‘I am famous for not shaking someone’s hand’ but I would like people to get to know me for who I am.”

Referencing the awkward moment and the alleged affair, Helen said it’s not hard to see why “John Terry got a look-in on his ex bird”.

“Wayne Bridge, going to be a big girl’s blouse,” she wrote.


Look, seems like a normal guy, but with a personality like that, not hard to understand why John Terry got a look-in on his ex bird,” she added in her column for the Daily Star.

Helen also took a swipe at Adam Thomas and Jordan Banjo.

“Adam Thomas has a moody streak that will reveal itself soon, and I don’t think Jordan Banjo will last that long. Annoying much?”

However, one person who doesn’t feel the same as Helen is Wayne’s best pal actor Jake Wood, who bet £100 on his success.

Alongside a picture of a bookmaker’s betting slip receipt, he said: “Get your hard earned on it folks, my mate Wayne Bridge is sure to win I’m A Celebrity.”
