Currently without a football club, Jamie O’Hara has a bit of time on his hands and has followed in the footsteps of ex-wife Danielle Lloyd and joined this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.

Since playing for different clubs and being married to a glamour model, Jamie is spicing things up in the Borehamwood Bungalow and dishing the gossip left right and centre.

He’s already been spilling the beans on the downfall of his turbulent marriage and moaning to fellow housemates Nicola McLean and Bianca Gascoigne about his struggle to pay £15,000 a month in child maintenance.

Despite admitting his ex-wife asked him not to talk about her on TV, Jamie has been very chatty.

We think it’s time we find out more about him.

Who is Jamie O’Hara?

Jamie O’Hara is a British footballer known for playing in midfield for Tottenham Hotspur, Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C and captaining the Under- 21 England team.

Who was Jamie O’Hara married to?

No stranger to scandal, Jamie is known for his fiery marriage with former Miss England ex-wife Danielle Lloyd.

Danielle joined CBB in 2007 where she famously made headlines for racist behaviour towards Shilpa Shetty alongside Jade Goody and Jo O’Meara. It’s unlikely Danielle is enjoying the latest edition of CBB as it also includes her rival, former WAG Nicola McLean.


After the birth of their three sons, Archie, Harry and George, the couple married in 2012 before divorcing two years later following allegations Jamie had been unfaithful to her.

Last year, Jamie publically accused Danielle of bribing him and not letting him see their children. And later on Twitter he discussed paying for their £13k mortgage, all bills, £2,500k in maintenance and £500 of nursery fees in spousal support, describing it as draining.


Why is Jamie O’Hara on Celebrity Big Brother?

It’s seems to be all about the pounds for Jamie, who says his involvement in the show is down to the pay cheque he needs after a pricey divorce.

Early on he opened up about his financial stress, saying Danielle was accustomed to his high salary and expected it to continue. His fall from football grace, with a series of loans and injuries soon led to a cut in his income and a burden to finance their luxurious lifestyle.

Jamie is now taking his CBB gig as a chance to rebuild himself and pay the bills.

Does Jamie O’Hara have a girlfriend?

No, but if you’re looking to win his heart you may have some competition as he admitted to fancying fellow housemate Jasmine Waltz during a task.

The pairs flirtation has caused a stir, but Jasmines confessed that she would struggle to overcome Jamie’s past. She’s also shown favouritism towards Calum Best as she chose him over Jamie when asked who she would rather ‘get wet’ with. She was also seen cosying up to Calum in bed enjoying a spooning session, before a left out Jamie joined in.

Also on his love radar is Nicola McLean, yes his ex-wife’s ex-BFF. The two flirted as Nicola revealed they had kissed beforE, and she later asked him to come into her bed once the lights were off.

Earth to Danielle, feel free to enter the CBB house any minute now!
