The married soccer star who had a six-month affair with Imogen Thomas has confessed all to his devastated wife.

She confronted the footballer after becoming suspicious that he was the person hiding behind a court order that gags the media from revealing his fling with the Big Brother beauty.

And friends say the wife was “in tears” when he admitted the truth. But she has agreed not to walk out for the sake of their family.

“For the past two weeks the player’s wife has been wondering if it is her husband being referred to in all the newspapers as the footballer who had an affair,” a source said.

“She has been fearing the worst. But she needed to hear it for herself so confronted him, demanding to know the truth.

“She asked him straight out if he had been cheating and he admitted he had. The ­infidelity has left her ­devastated.

“But she’s determined to try to make the marriage work and keep her family together.”

The Sunday Mirror cannot name the world-famous star, who is hiding behind a super-injunction to protect his ­reputation.


  • Two weeks ago we revealed how former Miss Wales Imogen, 28, would often meet the player in hotels. But when the affair was about to be exposed, the player went to theHigh Court.

    Imogen says the move has left her feeling betrayed and that she is now preparing to flee Britain to escape the nightmare.

    She broke down in tears last week and revealed she’d been threatened with prison if she identified the footballer she had an affair with.

    Speaking on ITV1’s This Morningshe said: “I’ve been thrown to the lions. I had no intention of talking about the man.”

    She also told how she was stunned when contacted by her former lover’s legal team. “I was sent an email and burst into tears,” she said. “I was so shocked because it said if I ever spoke about it I’d be sent to jail.”

    The footballer is one of a string of wealthy male sports and TV stars to win controversial gagging orders to cover up how they have cheated on their wives.

    A married actor went to court to stop 23-year-old prostitute Helen Wood ­spilling the beans about their sexual ­encounter.

    And last week BBC ­journalist Andrew Marr, 51, went public to admit he had taken out an ­injunction to hush up an affair.

    Married dad-of-three Marr, 51, was granted the gagging orderin 2008 to ban reports he had a fling with a Fleet Street political journalist.

    The ex-BBC political editor, ­married to Guardian columnist Jackie Ashley, 56, thought he had fathered a child with his lover, although DNA tests later proved he was not the dad.

    Marr, who says he has saved his ­marriage, said he has decided to tear up the injunction after becoming ­embarrassed by it.

    “I did not come into journalism to go around gagging journalists,” he said. “Am I embarrassed by it? Yes. Am I uneasy about it? Yes.”

    The spate of super-injunctions has led to concerns that a back-door privacy law is being created by judges, accessible only to the rich and famous.

    Prime Minister David Cameron has also waded into the debate, saying ­Parliament and not judges should decide where the right to privacy begins.
