Vanessa Perroncel wants to get back with former boyfriend Wayne Bridge despite having a relationship with John Terry - his former Chelsea and England team-mate.
The French model has endured weeks of tabloid headlines about her relationship with Terry but is yet to give up hope of starting afresh with Bridge, the father of her three-year-old son Jaydon.
"He [Bridge] must be hurting and it must be horrible for him, but I still love him with all my heart," the Sunday Mirror quoted Miss Perroncel as telling friends.
"I wish we'd never broken up in the first place. I don't know what Wayne is thinking but if I could have him back it would be amazing, for me and Jaydon.
"I know how painful it's been for me to read all the stories this week about all these men I am supposed to have slept with so I can only imagine what it's been like for him. After all the lies written I can't imagine he'd want me back."
Antonia Graham, a friend of Miss Perroncel, told the newspaper: "Vanessa has never stopped loving Wayne but she doesn't know if he feels the same. He is the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, not John. She just hopes it is not too late."Reuse content
