TV pal says Giggs’ brother ‘in shock’ over alleged affair

RYAN GIGGS’S brother Rhodri is “in shock” after his world was “tipped upside down in one night” by claims the Manchester United footballer had an affair with his wife, a close friend said.

TV star Will Mellor told ITV1’s Daybreak programme: “It’s a horrible time, imagine having your world tipped upside down in one night.”

Asked if Rhodri, 34, was still in shock, Mellor said: “Yes, horrendous time for everyone who’s innocent in this and I just hope it blows over sooner rather than later and he can start rebuilding his life..”

Meanwhile, Giggs had a two-year affair with a third woman, it has been reported, amid claims from his family he is a "sex addict".

The claims emerged after footballer Giggs, 37, who has two children with his wife Stacey, 32, obtained a court order banning publication of details of an alleged affair he had with Big Brother housemate Imogen Thomas.

The injunction was breached in the House of Commons after details appeared on the internet.

Yesterday it was claimed Giggs had a two-year affair with a third woman, which occurred during his engagement and birth of his first-born child.

Giggs’ aunt Joanna Wilson, 49, of Cardiff, accused him of preying on woman, by using his star status.

“I can’t believe the mess Ryan’s made of his life. He’s a predator,” she told the Daily Star. “I’m disgusted by his behaviour.

“One thing’s for sure, he can’t keep his trousers up and he needs help for it.”
