Celebrity escort Jenny Thompson has made a public TV apology to Coleen Rooney two years after kiss-and-tell revelations rocked the WAG's marriage.

The 23-year-old said she wanted to say sorry following the England and Manchester United star's infidelity with her while she was working as a £1,300-a-night prostitute.

She said she has given up being an escort, changed her lifestyle, become a mother, and is full of regret about her past.

"At the time I knew that and there is no excuse for what I did," she told ITV's Daybreak.

"At the time my excuse was, 'It's a job'. That was my excuse at the time, but now looking at it, it was wrong and being a mother now I can see how that must have felt, to do that to a family."

Asked what she would like to say to Coleen, she replied simply: "I'm sorry."

Reports broke in September 2010 claiming she had slept with Wayne while his wife was pregnant with son Kai.

Jenny, who is working on a book about her life, later revealed she worked as an escort and has been linked with a number of Premier League footballers.

From a comfortable middle-class background in Bolton, she became a regular on the Manchester club scene in her teens and began working as an escort as a way of being a rebel, she said.

"It's weird. I was always quite rebellious when I was younger and I always had certain issues with myself, self esteem, and going into that - there was never any particular reason, I think I was rebelling. I was doing something I was not supposed to do and at the time it felt like it was exciting, but now, looking back, it was the total opposite."

The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
