Imogen: I've been thrown to the lions

BIG Brother star Imogen Thomas says she's been "thrown to the lions" by a super-injunction banning her from naming her married Premiership star lover.

The 28-year-old lads' mag favourite complained that she was paying for the affair she had with the "family man" footballer but he'd got away scot free because he had the cash to gag her.

Talking on today's This Morning, the former Miss Wales denied she had ever intended to sell her story and that the first she heard about the injunction was when she was contacted by the footie star's lawyers.

She told hosts Phillip Schofield and Ruth Langsford: "Like I said I had no intention of speaking about the man, I just wish that my name was protected, I didn't have fifty thousand pounds to get an injunction.

"How I feel is I've been thrown to the lions and told to deal with it. I can't deal with it, I'm coping with a lot of stress and pressure on my head.

"This has just been such an awful experience for me and no one's taken that into consideration.

"Yes I'd say I've done wrong and I'm paying for it."

Imogen admitted that she'd had a six-month fling with the footballer and had met with him in hotel rooms for romps - including on nights before key games.

The glamour girl said the star had told her that she was the love of his life and even the footballer's agent was shocked when he found out about their tryst because the player was known to be devoted to his family.

Imogen added that she was totally shocked when she first heard she was to be gagged by the courts, saying: "I just had a phone call from the other party's lawyers and I was just totally baffled because there was no way on earth I wanted this come out ever.

"So I was like, 'What do you mean I'm getting injuncted?'"

The reality TV star added: "I honestly didn't understand anything about it. Obviously I got sent an email I had to read it through. I just burst into tears because it all happened so quick and I was so shocked by what was happening really.


"And I had to deal with it and one thing it said is if I ever, ever spoke I would be sent to jail. And I had no intention of speaking."

Imogen said she never wanted the footballer named, but regretted that her part in the affair had been made public.

She added: "You know as foolish as this sounds I honestly didn't think that this would get out into the public domain or anything.

"I always said I had no intention of selling the story. If I was to do that it would have happened six months ago.

"Like I said before I don't want his name to be splashed all over the newspapers. I have thought long and hard about this. I've had time to reflect."
