It just seems we are constantly bombarded by news stories of celebrities that can’t behave themselves. Our much loved Tess Daly – the Strictly Come Dancing host is reported to be ‘shattered’ after her husband, Vernon Kay - All Star Family Fortunes presenter confessed to exchanging lewd SMS messages with five girls.
After taking time to come clean, Kay finally confessed to sending inappropriate messages to glamour model Rhian Sugden, just 23 year old. He was embarrased further when a further four girls came out the woodwork to say he had also been ‘sexting’ them too.
It was close friends who broke the sensitive news to Tess Daly of Kay’s indiscretions and while she was devastated, she felt positive about working through the issue. That was until she heard there were other girls…and now former model Miss Daly, who has been married to Kay for 6 years and shares two daughters, feels ‘the trust is gone’.
A source has confirmed: ‘Vernon has sworn on his family’s life that he did not sleep with anyone, so we’re all just hoping there are no more skeletons left in the closet…they are not going to split, but let’s just say he’ll be in the dog house for some time.’
Vernon Kay, who also presents a Saturday show on BBC Radio 1, said the text exchanges began as innocent but developed more explicitly. He added: 'I've been an idiot and I've let my family down.' Kay said while he had initially treated the messages as ‘harmless banter’, he now realised his behaviour was not appropriate for a married man.
Kay awaits news from Radio 1 bosses to say whether he can take time off from forthcoming Radio 1 commitments to spend time with his family.
