Flirt Alert

by | 14th, May 2003

‘LINDA Barker spends her TV life redecorating other people’s homes, but she might now have to spend a bit of time patching up her own marriage.

Changing grooms?

According to the Star, the ‘flirty’ 41-year-old gave her husband the cold shoulder when she emerged from the Australian jungle after a fortnight of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

The paper says hubby Chris Short thought she was playing to the cameras when she flirted with winner Phil Tufnell on the show.

‘But instead of the romantic reunion he had hoped for when her stay in the jungle was over,’ it says, ‘a tanned and lithe Linda barely acknowledged her other half.’

The Sun hears Linda admit that she did fancy the Middlesex cricketer – ‘I fell for the twinkle in his eye – I defy any woman not to.’

But it claims her husband is not jealous.

‘I don’t mind if other men fancy my wife – I don’t blame them,’ says Chris.

‘She’s sexy, she’s beautiful but, best of all, she’s mine. I can see the attraction like everyone else.’

But what about your wife fancying other blokes, Chris?

The Star tries to stir the pot, quoting a friend of the couple as saying: ‘It was a completely different Linda who came out of the jungle, one none of us had ever seen.

‘Her flirting went into overdrive and Chris is concerned about what his wife has become.’

Back to the Sun and the answer would seem to be a millionaire.

The paper claims Tuffers, Linda and John Fashanu could each scoop £1m from their exposure on the show.

Tuffers has already sold the serialisation rights to his autobiography to the Mirror, which this morning regales readers with stories of the spinner’s five-in-a-bed romps in Australia.

‘I was like Billy Bunter with the keys to the tuck shop,’ he says of the incident.
