A hunky polo player has claimed he had sex up to 20 times with Jeremy Kyle’s wife as the mouthy talk show host was away in the US.
James Carr, 25, claims he bedded Carla Germaine, 40, in the space of “six or seven meetings”.
James claims the pair became pals when she went for a polo lesson three years ago and they swapped numbers after a night out.
The dark-haired hunk, who played for England twice in 2011, said they shared first kiss in March after meeting at Ascot’s Bar One, before becoming lovers in June.
TV star Jeremy, 50, announced last week that his 13-year marriage was over and he and Carla had been living apart since earlier this summer.
James claimed meetings with Carla would take place at the house he shared with friends opposite the couple’s family home in Berkshire.
He told The Sun: “Carla called after midnight asking if I wanted to meet her outside for a cigarette.
“We had a smoke and a chat and she told me Jeremy was in America. Then suddenly we began kissing. Without talking, I took her hand and led her inside my house.
“Carla took her high heels off so her shoes wouldn’t make a noise on our stone stairs. We didn’t want to wake my housemates. We started having sex – it was amazing.”
The sportsman claimed their trysts “didn’t mean anything” and they were “just having fun”.
He said rumours of their affair soon spread around their home town and they “cut all ties”, with their last contact being last month.
No-nonsense ITV host Jeremy confirmed the end of his marriage to Carla on Thursday, saying they had “sadly grown apart over recent years”.
“After 13 years of a generally happy marriage, my wife and I, Carla, have separated amicably,” he later said, confirming the news.
