Ulrika Jonsson admits huge regret for cheating on husband

The MasterChef hopeful has been doing some soul searching

| Updated:

MasterChef finalist favourite Ulrika Jonsson has been reflecting on her past relationships, having just celebrated her 50th birthday.

The blonde bombshell originally shot to fame as a morning TV weather presenter.

With a string of relationships under her belt, and having had four children with four different men – resulting in the cruel nickname ‘4×4’ – the gorgeous blonde has been discussing her first marriage to cameraman John Turnbull, father to her oldest son, Cameron.

She told Weekend magazine: “I did some not very nice things. I was unfaithful, which is more than not nice.”

Ulrika was also married to German hotel manager Marcus Kempen, with whom she shares daughter Bo, and Lance Gerrard-Wright, who she met on a TV show and had daughter Martha with.

She is currently happily married to advertising executive Brian Monet, father to son Malcolm.

The former Gladiators presenter has also been linked in the past to a number of men in the limelight, including Prince Edward, footballer Stan Collymore and former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson.

Speaking candidly about how she feels about turning 50, Ulrika also admitted that the arrival of the menopause has shocked her.

She told the magazine: “It’s been harder to get my head around the start of the menopause than the age thing because I still feel like I’m 18.”

The former weather girl has proven herself a natural in the kitchen in this series of Celebrity MasterChef and is a favourite for the top spot in the final.

Ulrika said of her place in the final: “On the one hand I’m elated – but I know this is going to get tougher.”
