Wayne Lineker has spoken about the true nature of his relationship with Chloe Ferry – admitting he is seeing the reality star.
Businessman Wayne, 58, who has previously appeared on The Only Way Is Essex and is the brother of former footballer Gary Lineker, recently set tongues wagging when he shared a picture of himself and Geordie Shore star Chloe, 25, online showing off an apparent engagement ring.
And while he admits the pair was just teasing their followers with a possible wedding, he confirms they are ‘really, really tight’.
During an interview on FUBAR Radio show Access All Areas, hosted by TOWIE’s Bobby Norris and journalist Stephen Leng, Wayne was asked who his celebrity crush was, prompting him to respond: ‘Oh, that’s Chloe obviously!’
Bobby quizzed: ‘Miss Ferry. I saw all about this engagement! How did it come about Wayne?’
Wayne replied: ‘Me and Chloe just have a laugh all the time. We’re in the mansion and she had a wedding ring.
‘She went, “Come on, Wayne, let’s pretend we’re getting married.” And we took all the pictures and everything and we didn’t end up doing it, we just forgot about it.
‘And she phoned me up last week. Because, I mean, we are seeing each other a little bit and having a bit of flirtatious banter and we’ll see what happens in the summer.
‘But she said, “Come on let’s post it! Let’s have a laugh!” I said, “You know it’s going to go viral don’t you?” She went, “Yeah course I do!”’
Wayne added: ‘But yeah, me and Chloe are really tight. She came on my podcast last week, No Excuse for Abuse, and she was amazing you know. But yeah, we’re really, really close and she’s coming to Ibiza for the summer.
‘And so, we’ll see what happens.’
When asked by Bobby if the pair were ‘seeing each other… romantically’, Wayne concluded: ‘We’re always flirting, Bobby.’
However, if Chloe is hoping to be taken down the aisle, she may have to wait for Wayne to come around as he thinks he may be a bachelor forever.
He said: ‘I’m happy on my own. I’m very happy in my own company, so we’ll see what happens. But yeah, it’s a funny one.
‘I mean, to be my girlfriend must be very difficult with the industry that I’m in, you know. I do accept that.
‘So yeah, I’m sort of training my mind now to get ready for a single life forever.’
