I’m a Star…I Need to Get Out of Here! Stars have spoken out about former boxer David Haye’s ‘throuple’ arrangement.
Earlier this year, the 43-year-old boxer sparked controversy by seeming to date not just girlfriend Sian Osborne, 30, but also former The Saturdays singer Una Healy, 42.
While none of the three addressed the accusations while they were together, David appeared to confirm the connection on Valentine’s Day when he paid respect to the ‘Queens’ in his life.
After the entrance of retired boxer Tony Bellow, 40, a former professional adversary of David, their arrangement has now been addressed in the camp.
Grace Dent and Nigel Farage both addressed David’s unique connection on Thursday’s programme.
Tony had to ask his campmates what a ‘throuple’ was, but once he knew, he put his support behind it before backing down.
It was actually Farage who alerted him to what it was, explaining: ‘He was living with two birds’.
‘Oh, David’s living the dream, believe you and me,’ Tony then exclaimed.
But he added: ‘I don’t get it. I can just about deal with one to be honest.’
Given the potential of becoming involved in a throuple, This Morning anchor Josie Gibson expressed her opinions, saying, ‘Imagine being the other woman, though?
‘I don’t… I couldn’t do that.’
Their conversation began when Tony discussed his work and how he only became wealthy after starting to battle David.
Tony said he was’skint’ before his first battle with the heavyweight fighter, in which he earned the highest money of his career.
Tony claimed he used to antagonise David before fights, and although defeating him twice, he believed his archrival was the “better fighter.”
Una claimed earlier this year that she was ‘hoodwinked’ into dating David when he was also seeing Sian.
Una said that she was hoping for a monogamous relationship but chose to date polyamorous David because their romance was “casual.”
But following a group vacation to Costa Rica, she realised the arrangement ‘wasn’t right’ and decided to leave.
‘There’s no dynamic there – she’s not my girlfriend – he’s both our boyfriend and I just thought, “I’m out, you can have him”,’ she told Vogue Williams and Joanne McNally on their My Therapy Ghosted Me podcast.
Sian, on the other hand, appeared to label Una a ‘lie,’ with The Sun subsequently claiming that she uploaded a dictionary definition of the phrase hoodwinked on social media.
I’m A Celebrity continues tonight on ITV and ITVX at 9pm.
