A FORMER escort who claims to have slept with footballer Wayne Rooney has apologised to his wife Coleen.

Jennifer Thompson, pictured, from Bolton, gave a public apology in The Sun newspaper and said she had changed since the birth of her daughter, Izabella, four weeks ago.

Miss Thompson, aged 23, is currently living with her parents and daughter in Bolton.

She told the newspaper that she has “learned the hard way that work, responsibility and lots of love and support are the only ways to truly feel content with yourself”.

Miss Thompson hit the headlines when it was revealed Rooney had allegedly cheated on his wife with her when Coleen was pregnant with their son Kai.

She is also alleged to have had a fling with former Manchester City footballer Mario Balotelli.
