Was Wayne Bridge married before?
Although Wayne hasn't been married before, he was in a long-term relationship with French model Vanessa Perroncel.
The couple began dating in 2005 and in November 2006 she gave birth to their son Jaydon Jean Claude.
However, the pair weren't to last and the couple split in 2009.
Soon after she split from Bridge, Vanessa was claimed to have had an affair with his married teammate John Terry.
Her friends alleged that John had seduced her as he comforted her over the break-up.
In January 2010, she became the subject of a super-injunction imposed by a High Court judge which prevented the press reporting the allegations – but it was lifted a week later.
To this day, Vanessa has continued to deny that she had been secretly seeing the footballer behind the back of his wife, Toni.
Wayne told The Sun how sad it is that people won't let him forget the day he refused to shake Terry's hand before a 2010 match.
He said: "The most disappointing aspect of it all is that I’m probably more famous for not shaking someone’s hand than I am for playing football."
When was Wayne Bridge on I'm A Celebrity?
Wayne appeared on the 16th series of I'm A Celeb in November 2016.
The 41-year-old came fifth in the competition, leaving in a shock double elimination alongside Martin Roberts, two nights before the final.
He had to confront his fears before he even touched the ground in his new jungle home, skydiving his way into camp from 10,000 feet.

The athlete also had several unfortunate encounters with the creepy-crawlies he hates.
