What did wife Jackie say about Ben cheating?

His flirty remarks will surely raise eyebrows with wife Jackie Belanoff Smith.

They re-surfaced less than a day after Jackie insisted Ben would “never” cheat again.

Ben shares two children Aoife, nine, and Tadgh, six, with his ex-wife Una.

The former couple split after Ben confessed he’d had an affair.

“I was the one who committed adultery… It’s not ideal but we’re very amicable,” he said at the time.

Ben went on to marry Jackie a year and a half after the end of his first marriage.

Earlier this week she told OK! she hadn’t even considered the idea Ben could cheat again.

She said: “From day one he’s never made me feel paranoid or insecure. He’s not once worried me.

“I think you just know, deep down, when that could happen and it’s not a possibility with us, so I’m not concerned.”
