Despite admitting that he has never seen the show before, David Ginola has been smashing this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity.
He has won the hearts of the nation, and his fellow campmates – especially actor Danny Miller.
But who has David’s heart, and does he have any children waiting for him outside the castle?
Here is all you need to know about David Ginola, including his love and family life.
How old is David Ginola?
David is 54, making him one of this year’s older contestants.
He was born on January 25, 1967, in Gassin, a village near St Tropez in France.
Which team did David Ginola play for?
The midfielder began his career in his native France playing for clubs including Toulon, RC Paris, Brest, and Paris Saint-Germain.
He joined Newcastle United in 1995 and played there for two years before moving to Spurs, where his achievements included being part of the squad that won the League Cup in 1999, as well as winning player of the year awards from both the Professional Footballers Association and the Football Writers Association.
Ginola moved to Aston Villa in 2000, and Everton in 2002, the same year he retired.
Since then he has worked as a football pundit for the likes of the BBC, BT Sport, Sky Sports, and Talksport, as well as producing his own wine at his vineyard in Provence.
He has also dabbled in reality TV in the past, taking part in the French version of Strictly Come Dancing – Dance Avec Les Stars – in 2011.
Speaking about I’m A Celebrity, he revealed he’s already had a brush with Ant and Dec, explaining: ‘I know the Geordies! I’ve met Ant and Dec before and I know they are massive fans of Newcastle United.’
“When you play for the club (like I did), all of the fans are amazing and very faithful. Newcastle is very lucky to have fans like them!’
Who is David Ginola’s girlfriend and do they have children?
Ginola is currently in a relationship with French model Maeva Denat, who is 22 years his junior – and the couple welcomed a baby daughter in 2018.
Maeva and David were first linked in 2016 when they were photographed holding hands in Paris.
He already has two grown-up children with his ex-wife Coraline Delpin – son Andrea, 27, and daughter Carla, 23.
David and Coraline married in 1991, and then split in 2016.
David is evidently missing his family, after bursting into tears on Monday night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity after the campmates received their letters from home.
Danny Miller noticed the footballer was feeling down, and asked: ‘Are you homesick?’ to which David replied: ‘Oh yeah, every day. Every day I’m more in love with my girlfriend. Every day I’m more in passion with my life.
‘I can’t wait, I can’t wait to get out and tell them how much I miss them. I think I’m going to hug my little girl for two hours. She will not understand.’
I’m A Celebrity 2021 continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
