Rebecca Adlington Gushed Dean Cain Was ‘Better Than Superman’ Before Marriage Split

It was revealed last week how Superman actor Dean Cain may have been a key factor in swimmer Rebecca Adlington’s marriage breakdown.

The pair grew close while appearing on Channel 4 show The Jump.

And the early warnings Olympian Rebecca, 27, thought Dean was absolutely super were there from the beginning.


In an interview that has emerged today, Rebecca, above, gushed about 49-year-old ex-TV Superman star Dean: “He is nicer than Superman, he’s better than Superman. Being in the house together forced us to bond quicker than we normally would.

“Day three we were doing the skeleton and he gave me a hug.”


The swimmer posted on Instagram the above still from a video showing her and Dean, along with the below snap of the pair partying.


The pair have also been said to have partied late into the night in each other’s rooms while shooting The Jump in Innsbruck, Austria.


But Rebecca, pictured above with estranged husband Harry, who has a nine-month-old daughter Summer and has not been so open about Dean’s influence on the split, saying: “No comment.”
