Strictly's Tony Adams reveals he once had a STALKER in new memoir 


Tony Adams has shockingly revealed that he once had a stalker as he detailed his ordeal in his new memoir. 

The former footballer, 55, who is currently competing on Strictly Come Dancing, recalled the ‘strange episode’ that took place following his retirement from sport.  

Tony explained that shortly after meeting his wife of 20-years, Poppy, ‘another woman’ also entered his life, who began circling his house in her car, leaving him gifts and even purchased two Dalmatian dogs like his.

Recounting the moment, he explained: ‘Another woman came in my life in an episode I was not very comfortable with. In fact her behaviour was very strange, as you might expect of some one who I can only describe as a stalker.

The sportsman detailed how he had met the lady whilst walking his dog but things soon escalated when she began driving slowly past his house and even leaving out packages of pills after she found out about his back injury in a newspaper article. 

He continued: ‘I suppose if it had been the other way around – a woman being stalked like this by a man – it would have been scary, but it never really frightened me, which was probably why I never did anything about it.’

‘I didn’t want to be unkind. In some ways, it was touching and I even felt a little flattered. At first,’ he concluded. 

Elsewhere, Tony joined his Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya Jones at rehearsals in London on Tuesday. 

The former footballer looked smart in a quirky velvet three-piece suit whilst he carried a gym bag and a change of clothes.

Speaking to The Sun, Katya admitted Tony takes ‘every possibility’ to have a break from rehearsals, but she has faith he will find his footing yet.

She said: ‘He always had a six-pack — of biscuits! Definitely, over the last two weeks.

‘He takes every possibility he can to take a break. There was this woman who kept making him tea. He’d say to her, “Keep talking so I don’t have to go back into training.”‘

She added: ‘But nothing is a challenge too difficult for me. I love teaching, I love seeing people improve.’
