Their getaway comes after Jermaine insisted he still doesn't place any blame on his wife Alice or any other woman in his life - for his behaviour, after appearing to claim he cheats because he was abandoned by his mother. 

Speaking to new! Magazine, the footballer also said that a lot of his behaviour stemmed from 'gaining attention,' after his candid revelations that he was abandoned at the age of three because his grandmother 'didn't want a brown baby.' 

Jermaine has made headlines in recent months after kissing model Chloe Ayling during their stint in Celebrity Big Brother house, but has since been forgiven by his wife Alice.

Jermaine explained: 'People misunderstood it... But the bottom line is, I've never had a mother figure in my life. And a lot of my actions were about gaining attention from females as a result of that abandonment. 

'It's no one's fault, it's just the way it is. When things were going bad for me, I wanted that gap to be filled. I'm not putting the blame on anyone, not my mum, not my dad, not Alice. 

Jermaine recalled the day his dad discovered his mum had cut all contact with him and had started a new family with a new partner when the footballer was just three-years-old.

He added: 'The story I've been told was that her mum-my grandmother-didn't want her to have a brown baby. So my dad brought me up from then on.'

Jermaine went onto explain that he has only spoken to his mum once since she abandoned him, after needing a signed document as a teen so he could play football abroad.

In 2018, Jermaine found himself in yet another scandal when he was seen  kissing model Chloe Ayling on the thigh during a game of spin the bottle on Celebrity Big Brother.

Following the devastating scandal, Alice revealed that the couple sought therapy and she decided to give her husband one last chance by drawling a line under his behaviour. 

She continued that this time there were 'no excuses' and if Jermaine were to cheat again it would be the final straw and there would be 'no going back'.

During the interview, Jermaine went on to reveal that he had put a lot of work into their relationship to make things better and that he and Alice were now in a better place.

Earlier this month, the couple addressed Jermaine's CBB scandal during a session with dating experts Paul Carrick Brunson and Anna Williams on Celebs Go Dating.

Speaking about the backlash that ensued following her husband's Celebrity Big Brother appearance, Alice said: 'I think it was blown out of all proportion', before asking Anna: 'Do you think it was acceptable?' 

Anna replied: 'In an answer? No I don’t think it’s acceptable.'

Jermaine then appeared to imply that he has cheated on a majority of his partners after his own mother was absent from a young age.  

He said: 'The majority of the girlfriends I had I have had I haven’t been faithful. I don’t know if that is because I’m acting like a bad boy or because I never had a mum around.'

Pushing the issue further, Paul asked: 'So where was your mother?'

Jermaine continued: 'She just wasn’t in my life. When you’ve got a mother that bond is there, the way you love her people then take that into their relationships with a girl, they look at that woman and look at their mum. I’ve never had that.'  

Alice also revealed that despite being married for five years the couple had not progressed due to Jermaine's infidelity.

She said: 'We’ve been married five years and we haven’t progressed in the way a normal marriage with progress, we should have three children running round the house.'

Alice and Jermaine tied the knot at a lavish ceremony in Cheshire in 2014 after dating each other for three years.
