In her first TV interview, Vanessa Perroncel has caused quite a stir, strongly denying her alleged affair with England football-player John Terry and stating her desire to resume her relationship with former partner Wayne Bridge.
The lingerie model said to GMTV's Kate Garraway of the relationship between her and John: "Friends, we were friends. That's what we were."
And in an interview with last month, Vanessa said: "He was my friend. I'd known him for eight years. I split up from Wayne and he was there for me."
She added on GMTV that "there was never any malicious intention in what I ever did".
Vanessa and John apparently had an affair over four months in late 2009, after she had split from Wayne - Manchester City star and John's teammate at Chelsea.
John - married and father of twins - was stripped of the England captaincy amid reports of his infidelity.
