Jermaine Pennant wife Alice Goodwin announces pair have split after nine years

Alice Goodwin announced on Instagram she has split from football and Celebrity Big Brother star Jermaine Pennant after nine years together.

Taking to the social media platform, the model and Celebs Go Dating star discussed the breakdown of her marriage, and said as a pair they had "explored all avenues".

She began: "Hi guys, before any speculation starts I’d like to let people know that Jermaine and I are no longer in a relationship. We have spent nine years together with ups and downs, but ultimately we couldn’t make it work.

"I will always care for Jermaine and wish him the best but at this point, all avenues have been explored to make the married work and sometimes things are meant to be.

"There is no drama, scandal, animosity of bitterness just two people whose journey has come to an end together. We have made this decision mutually and we are both looking forward to what the next chapter has in store."

The couple tied the knot back in May 2014 after dating each other for three years.

Their private wedding ceremony, held in Chesire, had an exclusive guestlist featuring family, close friends and a number of famous faces.

The duo first got together in 2011 when Jermaine dumped then-fiancee Lara Murphy for the brunette bombshell.

During Jermaine's stint on Celebrity Big Brother in 2018, the ex-footballer stirred up trouble when he heavily flirted with Chloe Ayling and told her his relationship was "f****d".

Moving past his ill-fated reality stint, the pair briefly separated in 2019 following explosive rows about whether to start a family.

While Jermaine wished to expand their brood, Alice wanted to wait.

The disagreement led to a series of explosive rows and they ended up parting ways.

He told The Sun Online: "I started to act like a baby and questioned our bond. We had a row and our rows lead to another row.

"Being immature I unfollowed her on social media and she unfollowed me. She deleted, I deleted. And the next thing you know we split up.

"We unfollowed each other to get one jealous and one angry. It was tit for tat."

The couple were also seen having relationship counselling on E4 show Celebs Go Dating last year.
