Ulrika Jonsson says her marriage broke down because of Gladiators curse

TV bombshell Ulrika Jonsson has compared her time on Gladiators to the infamous 'Strictly Curse' and says it was to blame for her marriage breakdown.

The stunning blonde, 54, was originally working as a weather presenter and said the early starts meant she didn't spend much time with her husband.

She joined Gladiators as the host back in 1992, and in a recent column she described it as a "sexy world."

Ulrika told The Sun: “I faltered. The second year of the show’s recording, a member of the camera crew caught my eye on the dance floor at a party towards the end of the filming.

“We ended up dancing together, albeit not Strictly-styley.

“Not intimate but enough for me to get a taste of something enticing and forbidden.

“Nothing happened but I developed feelings for this man and came home a much-changed wife. I didn’t want to be at home.”

She said her “marriage broke down” following the incident and she was later unfaithful to her husband.

At the time of the attraction, she was married to cameraman John Turnbull, who she married in 1990, before having a son together in 1994.

The couple them divorced in 1995.

The star presented Gladiators with John Fashanu until 1996.

Ulrika previously talked to the Daily Mail about her actions and how she now regrets what happened.

She said: "I was so young. I didn't know myself. I did some not very nice things. I was unfaithful, which is more than not nice."

Ulrika has been married three times and has four children.

She had a daughter with Markus Kempen in 2000.

Her second husband was Lance Gerrard-Wright from 2003 to 2006. He was intended to be the "prize" for the female contestants on dating show Mr Right, that Ulrika was presenting.

She then married Brian Monet in 2008, before separating from Brian back in 2019.
