Footballers’ Wives was a British television drama focusing on the players of the fictional Earls Park Football Club competing in the English Premier League, as well as the lives of their wives and girlfriends. Running between 2002 and 2006 on the ITV network, it immediately became a smash hit and never lacking in drama or controversy.
In the drama of the soccer’s lives and their alluring partners, there was also nudity, infidelity, and attempted murder. And all of that just in the first episode.
It has been eleven years since the Footballers’ Wives ended and now the time has come to walk down the nostalgia lane. If you have wondered what happened to your once favorite cast members after the scandalous ITV show ended, you are about to find out, thanks to Pretty52.
1. Zoe Lucker as Tanya Turner
The lead character, Tanya Turner was the undisputed Queen of the WAGs (a British acronym meaning Wives and Girlfriends of Sports Stars). She got married three times and each time her husband ended up dead. And her cattiness was legendary! Remember when she said: “Just a friendly warning for the future, you go anywhere near my husband again and it’ll take more than Botox to sort your face out!”
After the show ended, Zoe has been all over British TV, from EastEnders to Holby City and Hollyoaks and even on Strictly Come Dancing.
2. Cristian Solimeno as Jason Turner
Jason Turner was Tanya’s first husband. Although married to Tanya, the womanizer had very little shame about publicly cheating on her. The ultimate bad boy got pushed off a rooftop at the end of the second season. After the show, Cristian has been on The Vicar of Dibley and Hollyoaks.
