Jermaine Pennant’s best friend has revealed what his relationship status actually is.
Fellow footballer Kevin James dished the dirt on the Celebrity Big Brother star’s on-off marriage to Alice Goodwin.
The 38-year-old claimed Jermaine was NOT with his wife during the week before he entered the famous house.
Speaking on Bit On The Side, Kevin defended Jermaine’s actions and insisted Chloe Ayling should take responsibility for her role in their blossoming relationship.
Kevin confirmed that Jermaine is definitely married as he was an usher at the wedding.
Talking about the marriage, he said: "Well from what I know the relationship has been very, very on and off since they’ve been married. It’s been up and down.
"Since before he was going in there, what I heard from the last week they wasn’t together."
Presenter Rylan Clark-Neil looked stunned and the audience gasped.

Kevin then tried to explain why Jermaine did not reveal he was married at the start.
He continued: "I don’t like to say modern day relationships but to me he does look a bit confused in there.
"When you’re in a relationship that’s on and off, and has been for a long time, he didn’t feel the need to mention it as it’s something that’s at the end."
Things got a tad awkward as Chloe was sat in the BOTS studio listening in.
Kevin said: "It’s obvious to see she likes him. He’s admitted it. The facts are there, she said he likes her, you can’t deny those facts.
"I do feel Chloe has known and did know he was in a relationship. A little bit of onus should be on her and not just Jermaine."
Kevin also confirmed that he had not been in contact with Jermaine’s wife Alice since the show went to air.
