WATCH: Jermaine Pennant reveals all on surprise Jeremy Kyle appearance!

From the Champions League Final to Jeremy Kyle..

Footballers often make the news for the wrong reasons and Jermaine Pennant is someone who's regarded as something of a controversial character. Now at the age of 35, the former Notts County trainee has hung up his boots and retired from the game after an eventful career. He finished with a couple of Community Shield winners medals from his time with Arsenal and Liverpool during his 19 years as a professional but his highlight came back in 2007 when representing the Reds. Under Rafa Benitez he was part of a Liverpool side that made it to the Champions League Final when they were narrowly beaten by a star studded AC Milan side.

But since then his football career petered out, dropping down the ladder representing clubs such as Wigan, Bury, Billericay and even moving over to India to play for Pune City! However, despite this he continues to be a man in the news with his personal life constantly in the news. Earlier this year he became just the second footballer to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, which didn't really do his controversial image too much good. The public didn't know that he was actually married going into the show and neither did the other contestants, so his behaviour around some of the female housemates did not go down well at all.

Pennant received a lot of stick from both the media and fans of the show for what unfolded and on Friday he decided to speak out... on Jeremy Kyle of all shows! He appeared on it alongside his wife Alice Goodwin to speak out about exactly what happened on the show and his relationship - it's really worth a watch!

See exactly what unfolded below in a 3 part video:
