I’m A Celeb star James Haskell wore mum-in-law Judy Finnigan’s dress on boozy river cruise

I’M A Celeb star James Haskell wore mum-in-law Judy Finnigan’s dress on a boozy river cruise.

The England rugby ace, 35 — married to Chloe ­Madeley, daughter of TV’s Richard and Judy — had to hide a stripper’s modesty and got so drunk he “lost control” on the Thames in London.

In new book What A Flanker he writes: “It was a steaming hot, early summer’s day and people were starting to recognise me, despite — or, more likely, because of — the fact I looked like that bearded Austrian woman who won Eurovision.

“The dress I was wearing actually belonged to my now wife’s mum.”

He said the stripper had her boobs out on board, adding: “Disgusted mums are clasping hands over children’s eyes. I’m shouting, ‘Lads! You’ve not thought this through! Get her below deck!”

He also donned a wig as he sunk prosecco, beer and rum with fellow Wasps players who caused mayhem on the vessel.


James said: “There’s no getting away from it: she’s lost control. Like that old Joy Division song: ‘Confusion in her eyes that says it all. She’s lost control.

“And she’s clinging to the nearest passer-by.’ When I say ‘she’, I mean me.

"Because I’m standing on a boat in a wig and a dress, a woman for the day.

“It was a steaming hot early summer’s day, the towpath was rammed and people were starting to recognise us

James had two stints at two stints at Wasps, from 2002-09 and then 2013-18.

The former England international retired last year whilst at Northampton Saints.

He and Chloe, 33, started dating in 2014 and they married in 2018.
