Celebs Go Dating viewers shocked as Jermaine Pennant says it’s his MUM’S fault he cheated on wife Alice


CELEBS Go Dating viewers were left shocked this evening as Jermaine Pennant said it was his mum’s fault that he cheated on his wife Alice.

The footballer, 36, famously failed to tell his Celebrity Big Brother housemates he was married before trying to make a move on kidnapped model Chloe Ayling.

Jermaine Pennant said he cheats because he didn’t grow up with a mum in his life

Discussing his behaviour as he underwent therapy on the E4 show, he said: “The majority of the girlfriends I had I have had I haven’t been faithful, I don’t know if that is because I’m acting like a bad boy or because I never had a mum around.”

When asked by Paul Carrick-Brunson where his mother was, he replied: “She just wasn’t in my life.

“When you’ve got a mother that bond is there, the way you love her people then take that into their relationships with a girl, they look at that woman and look at their mum.

“I’ve never had that. We did break up for a period and it was dark, it was a lonely place. For some reason we always find our way back.”

Those watching at home were surprised by his comments and took to Twitter to comment on it.

One person wrote: “Jermaine cheated on his wife because he didn’t have a mum around growing up? Strong blame game #CelebsGoDating.”

While another added: “Basically Jermaine needs to grow up #CelebsGoDating.”

Alice, 33, meanwhile admitted:  “We’ve been married five years and we haven’t progressed in the way a normal marriage with progress, we should have three children running round the house.”

When Anna asked if Jermaine knew this, she replied: “The baby thing is a huge thing. I’ll have another baby when I know me and him are staying together forever and I relationship is as good as it can be.

“We do think in a very different way, this communication thing is the biggest thing because when he doesn’t deal with his emotions in the right way he’ll go out on a bender for the night and not come home. I’ll call his phone and be like, “where the fuck are you?”.

“When things get bad it does happen. Because the communication techniques are so different it just doesn’t work.”

Alice is still on the fence about starting a family
