Olympic gold-medalist swimmer Rebecca Adlington has opened up about her happy lockdown arrangement.
Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster set tongues wagging with their outrageously flirty chemistry during the BBC’s Olympic coverage a few weeks ago – and a touchy-feely appearance at last night’s GQ Men of the Year Awards has added further fuel to the fire. The swimming stars arrived together to attend the glitzy ceremony at London’s Tate Modern, and partied late into the night before heading off in a black cab together. A stray hand on Mark’s thigh in response to the former World Champion’s gentle ribbing that Rebecca “only won a bronze” at the London Olympics was among the many highlights.
Rebecca Adlington has shared some words of wisdom for any celebrities who might take on Channel 4′s The Jump in the future. Rebecca was one of many who suffered nasty injuries during this year’s series, dislocating her shoulder whilst practising the air jump, which forced her to pull out of the show.
It’s been a whirlwind 12 months for Rebecca Adlington, from giving birth to daughter Summer to sadly splitting from Harry Needs. Speaking exclusively to Yahoo Celebrity UK about Summer’s love of water, Rebecca, who is ‘very very excited’ about Rio this year, explained: “She’s so lovely. Despite the increasing (and ridiculous) amount of pressure women face to lose their baby weight ‘quickly’, Rebecca told us that her focus was on Summer and that she’s proud of the stretch marks she’s got from her pregnancy.
Rebecca Adlington has spoken about her split from Harry Needs for the first time, insisting the two are still best friends. The two got married in Staffordshire in August 2014, and have nine-month-old daughter Summer together. “We move forward with respect for one another and our focus and commitment is on parenting our gorgeous daughter Summer.
It was revealed last week how Superman actor Dean Cain may have been a key factor in swimmer Rebecca Adlington’s marriage breakdown. 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.
It looks as though Rebecca Adlington has had a wardrobe clear out, after she was reportedly spotted returning her wedding dress following the shock announcement of her split from husband Harry Needs. To play devil’s advocate, it is quite plausible that she was visiting the bridal shop for an entirely different reason, especially since her sister Chloe is set to wed this year.
The ex-Olympian swimmer’s sudden break-up from fellow swimmer Harry Needs after 18 months of marriage has left her friends stunned. Insiders were quoted by The Sun newspaper saying the 49-year-old comforted Adlington, 27, after she was ruled out of the dangerous series by injury. Adlington recently posted this still on Instagram from a video showing her partying with Cain.
