Premier League icon turned much-loved reality star, Wayne Bridge remains to this day as one of England’s most consistent performers at the top level after an impressive 20-year playing career.
A product of Southampton’s world-famous academy, Bridge outgrew his south coast surroundings at a young age and switched to Chelsea in 2003 where he went on to win the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup. From there, he had spells at Man City, West Ham and Sunderland, whilst being a consistent inclusion in the England national team, earning 36 senior caps. Following retirement, Bridge won the hearts of the nation when he spent two weeks in the jungle on ITV’s reality show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, earning praise across social media and magazine columns for defeating the stereotypical footballer stigma with his ‘good guy, down-to-earth’ attitude.
