Parents of woman at centre of Rooney allegations apologise to Coleen

Coleen Rooney has received an apology from the parents of the woman who footballer husband Wayne allegedly paid £1,200 (€1,450) a time for sex.

Hamish and Dana Thompson spoke out after claims that their daughter Jennifer, 21, regularly slept with the Manchester United and England star while his wife was pregnant.

Mr and Mrs Thompson issued a statement, saying: "Following the various newspaper articles concerning our daughter Jennifer, we would like to offer our most sincere apologies to Coleen Rooney and her family.

"This may sound somewhat hollow, but my wife and I would never condone what has or may have happened.

"We had absolutely no idea about any of the allegations and claims that have been made."
