He approached ME! The woman who ended up in bed with footballer Andy Carroll just days before his wedding to Billi has claimed he approached her during the boozy night out
It comes after Billi was spotted without her engagement ring while out shopping with her mother on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the woman who ended up in bed with Andy just days before his wedding has claimed he approached her during the boozy night out.
Bar manager Taylor Jane Wilkey, 27, claimed the footballer used a ‘basic chat-up line’ on her and was a complete ‘gentleman’ at nightclub hostpot The Avenue Dubai.

Taylor told the Sun: ‘It was an amazing day, the booze was flowing and Andy seemed to be having a great time.
‘He came over to chat to us and asked what we did, he seemed nice, a gentleman.

Taylor and fitness instructor Phoebe Robb, also 27, were taken back to Andy’s luxurious hotel suite at Fairmont the Palm.

The next day, Taylor, from Scarborough, shared photos of her laying in bed with the footballer and wearing his hotel bathrobe after a 17-hour day with him and his pals.
Taylor has now detailed the boozy night with the West Bromwich striker and claimed that she and her pals were not told Andy was on his stag-do.
Taylor, who works in Dubai as a bar manager at a high-end hotel, described her time with Andy as ‘really boozy’ and said the striker was ‘steaming drunk’.
Reflecting on the night, Taylor said they arrived at The Avenue Dubai, a nightclub in the Shangri-La Hotel, at around 1am and headed to the VIP area, where Andy had booked a table.

She said they all had shots of Grey Goose vodka before Andy danced around with underwear on his head, while one of his friends fell off a chair and through a false wall.
‘I remember Andy dancing around with the waistband from a pair of Calvin Kleins on his head and the DJ kept giving him a shout-out,’ she added.
The wild bender saw Andy and his friends spend around £30,000, where Andy drunk at least 20 rounds of vodka, 10 glasses of sangria, and 10 shots of Jägermeister and Grey Goose vodka.
But Taylor insisted that the night was just ‘innocent fun’ and apologised to Andy’s fiancée Billi for the ‘mess’.
Speaking about the photograph of herself in a bed with Andy, Taylor insisted ‘nothing sexual’ happened between them and expressed her embarrassment for passing out on the bed.

Taylor, who claimed the pictures were leaked on Snapchat after she sent them to her friends back, said she has done nothing wrong and added that Andy was too drunk for anything to have happened between them.
‘He didn’t try anything – and even if he had wanted to, he was too drunk,’ she said.
Taylor admitted she felt guilty for taking photographs of them both in bed, and of her wearing his dressing gown, as she said it was just meant to be a ‘joke’.
She also insisted she was not naked in the picture of them both in bed, saying she was wearing a strapless dress and that other people were in the room at the time.
It was later revealed that Andy had also slept alongside a second woman – Taylor’s friend, 26-year-old Phoebe Robb, a personal trainer from Leeds.
The stag group’s day of drinking last week began at midday at Cove Beach Club, where they were filmed partying.
