Vernon Kay’s affair keeps getting dragged to the headlines even after years, making fans wonder what went wrong for the BBC Radio host. The talk of his ties with a model has never left his side and neither hers, as she has been frequently about it through the decade. The girl is none other than Rhian Sugden, a popular glamor model who was in the talks in 2010 and the following years.
It is not just her fame that drew attention towards her, but rather the texting affair scandal she had with a TV star, Vernon Kay, who was married to Tess Daly since 2003. Working as a page 3 model, Rhian Sugden had much to say about the scandal, and the entire controversy took a huge toll on the ones involved.
While this controversy has been a matter of talk since the early 2010s, it seems to be taking a serious point years later. Hence, in this blog, we will dig deep into the likes of what the controversy has been about and what it beholds, decoding everything about it.
Vernon Kay and Rhian Sugden Affair
Well, the entire case between Rhian Sugden and Vernon Kay was how the cheating stemmed through explicit messages. Both the stars popular from the 2010s were found to be in an affair when Vernon Kay had already been married to Tess Daly since 2003, while Rhian Sugden was entirely single and young at that time and in her high-performance era.
While one thing led to another, their affair and Vernon’s cheating got caught in public through their chats, which put both in a bad light. Vernon seemed to have come out of it pretty soon and successfully, while Rhian faces backlash. Moreover, Vernon’s claims and statements, in this case, do bring him out as what Rhian deems him to be.
His little remark on the show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, about his family being embarrassed, got him an easy exit, which hurts Rhian. She also feels guilty and has apologized to her for the scandal. Nonetheless, at present, both are living their separate lives, with Vernon busy with his family and career and Rhian with her husband, Oliver Mellor.
Rhian Sugden’s Take On The Affair
Rhian Sugden, after finding herself deep into the scandal founded in 2010, got her chats exposed in public with Vernon Kay, who was married to Tess Daly at that time. The man – Vernon Kay, survived the scandal quite easily and did not face many backdrops in his career, yet Rhian Sugden faced her part of the story quite differently.
Recently, in 2020, Rhian Sugden claimed that Vernon Kay and herself had equal parts to play in the affair, yet he got away with the scandalous situation with a radio apology. Rhian Sugden had to face a major backlash due to the problem that even ruined her career and life entirely. This was claimed by her in a documentary in 2020.
She even stated that this scandal took place at the time when she was enjoying her peak and career development, but Vernon Kay and the affair with him threw her to the grounds too badly.
Rhian Sugden even made an appearance on Page 3: The Naked Truth and opened up about the case where she even added that Vernon Kay had the opportunity and fortune to give an apology publically both to his family and fans, which worked out for him quite well, resulting in his career skyrocketing but Rhian only ate dust. The situation and the past make her sick at times.
Vernon Kay’s Take On The Scandal
Vernon Kay has been quite shut about the situation after it all settled down after the happenings of 2010, which is why things might have seemed to go quite smoothly, or it did as well. Still recently, in a reality TV show named I’m a Celebrity… In Get Me out of Here in 2020, Vernon Kay opened up about his situation and his take on the scandal to his campmates on the camera show.
At the show during the recording, Vernon claimed the scandal to be a thing of the past and that he has forgotten entirely about all that has happened between him and Rhian Sugden and has moved on.
