Chloe Madeley is claiming that she is the main beneficiary of her husband James Haskell sleeping with 1,000 women in the past.
The 33-year-old fitness guru has said that instead of pouring scorn on her former England rugby playing lover for his pursuit of sex in the past, she is celebrating that she is enjoying the results of his experience.
James, 35, has had a “very eventful life” according to Chloe and she says she’s “fine with it” as the former I’m A Celebrity campmate pours his passions into their relationship.
Speaking to The Sun, Chloe said that James has been with “far above what your average would be” when it comes to bed partners while she has “a very humble number of notches on my bedpost.”
Chloe said that she was more of a “relationship girl” and had “seven medium to long-term relationships” while James confesses to only “two girlfriends” before Chloe, as he enjoyed the trappings of the bachelor life.
Chloe admits that bed partners are still viewed differently with “slut-shaming is still prevalent” leading to women being “more secretive about their sex lives because it’s seen as distasteful for us to talk about it.”
She continues to say that it’s a “huge double standard” as “the more sex” men have, the “more celebrated” they become.
Chloe is the daughter of former daytime TV favourites, Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan and she said that she almost called time on her relationship with James when he said that marriage did not interest him.
Her dad Richard advised her to walk away as it became a sticking point in their time together.
Chloe said that her desire to be married became ‘intense’ and that James “made it really hard for me” as he “didn’t know if he wanted to”
The more Chloe talked about it, the more James “shut it down.”
Chloe had a difficult decision to make as she “had to think about whether I was willing to walk away from the person I was pretty sure I should be with for the rest of my life.”
It was during the moment of doubt as to whether their relationship had hit the wall and there was no way over the marriage ‘obstacle’, James proposed out of the blue.
Chloe was not impressed with the sudden change of mind as she looked back at the time they had lost together.
She said: “I was so angry that he’d put me through all that — and still am to this day.
“We lost six months of our relationship to arguing and feeling miserable and I look back at that time as hell.”
