Anyone else going to be watching this tonight?

I watched the first one with Rio talking about the grief of losing Rebecca, it was so heartbreaking what the family all went through, I'm so pleased he seems to have found happiness. He seems like a nice guy.

BBC 1 at 9pm tonight.

Can't believe this is on the BBC! And the 9pm slot too.

I want to like him but lots of rumours he wasn’t faithful to Rebecca, even with Kate I think. I’ll watch though, I feel for those babies.

RIP Rebecca

Why? It's probably because his last documentary was well watched I think and that was BBC 9pm slot from memory.

I think so but can’t find anything to back that up so don’t know where I heard that from! I can find articles about the other 10(!!!) though confused

Either way I think she seems lovely and I think she’s doing a good job with the kids. Can’t be easy

He admitted to cheating , it wasn’t just rumours and he lost a court case against a paper publishing details of affairs.

I do hope they’ll be happy but how she’d ever trust him.

It was said in Court in 2011 that he'd been unfaithful with at least 10 women when with Rebecca. I can't stand him.

They're exploiting the children.

magicfarawaytrees Mon 10-Feb-20 20:27:22

I literally cannot stand these two.

In court in 2011 he admitted to cheating on his wife 10 times (and these are just the ones that are known). He then played devoted, heartbroken husband in the media when his wife died.

He has enough money to live the quiet life and do a Jeff Brazier with those children until they become old enough to be in the spotlight (if that’s what they want). But no, he’s beyond greedy and wants to make a quick buck from them and paint himself as a ‘nice guy’. It’s rumored he moved this thick Kate from Towie in before his wife even died. She is in the Daily Mail nearly every day wearing Lycra or inappropriate bikinis in front of the kids boring on about ‘healthy eating’ or exercising or the hardships of being a stepmother. Give me a break. Couple this with the constant Instagram pretentious guff they post daily (again using the kids as props) and constant paid for daily articles in the Daily Fail, they are incredibly greedy and fame-hungry. Haven’t they got enough money? Obviously not if they constantly choose to sell out his young children who have already been through enough.

I feel so sorry for his first wife and young children. They are a truly vile couple.

One affair was said to be for 13 years, another five. He also admitted filming himself having sex. He said “I succumbed to the advances of women’ and the publicity was stressful and embarrassing for him, poor lamb.

Janus Mon 10-Feb-20 20:33:16

To be fair, you never see the children’s faces so not sure if they are exploiting them?? She seems very hands on with them. I too would find it hard to totally trust him though.

missyB1 Mon 10-Feb-20 20:33:16

This man makes me feel sick! A bloody cheat and a hypocrite. So many people fawned over him after his last documentary about his “grief”. He was unfaithful multiple times and tried to get court injunctions to shut the newspapers up. God knows what his poor first wife had to put up with.

Thesearmsofmine Mon 10-Feb-20 20:36:14

I really dislike the pair of them. I saw a story where she was going on about the little girl saying she isn’t her real mum (or similar) and I just think those things are private, that child is grieving her mum and lashing out and that they shouldn’t be selling this to all and sundry.

MsTSwift Mon 10-Feb-20 20:38:48

Hideous man she seems none too bright. Poor late wife and kids.

getyourarseoffthequattro Mon 10-Feb-20 20:40:40

How are they exploiting the children? You never see their faces.

I think its unfair to call Kate "thick" as well.

Taking on 3 kids whove lost their mum isnt an easy job. I have a lot of admiration for her whether shes wears innapropriate bikinis ( i mean wtf hmm) or not.

Id rather someone like her raise my kids than someone as judgemental and mean as some posters on this thread

missyB1 Mon 10-Feb-20 20:43:09

He will no doubt cheat on this wife too, that kind of leopard never changes its spots.

Oblomov20 Mon 10-Feb-20 20:44:13

He is vile. Cheating with 10. Her moving in before his wife even died.

" I did nothing as a footballer, I threw down my dirty washing and someone picked it up. I didn't know what a play date was, I didn't know anything with the kids because I never did anything with them". Is that supposed to be endearing?

all her claims of how hard it is now.

Excuse me while I vomit!

PanamaPattie Mon 10-Feb-20 20:45:55

I can't stand either one of them. At least he's got a housekeeper and a mother for his children. She frees up time for his extra curricular activities.

covetingthepreciousthings Mon 10-Feb-20 20:47:18

Her moving in before his wife even died.

Is this true?

He moved her in before his wife had died? Really? Is that true?

I was going to comment, but @magicfarawaytrees has written it far more eloquently than I could have done.

What she said basically.
