Ex Arsenal professional Ian Wright has entered this year's Jungle, but who is his wife Nancy Hallam and how many children do they have?

Ian Wright has only been in the I’m A Celebrity Jungle for a few days, but he’s already cementing himself as a firm favourite with viewers.

But while we know about his life as an Arsenal player on the pitch, there’s not much we know about his family.

So as he takes on another challenge in tonight’s episode, here’s everything you need to know about his wife Nancy Hallam and eight children.

Who is Ian Wright’s wife?

Ian got married to wife Nancy Hallam back in 2011.

While we don’t know much about Nancy, in 2018 Ian reportedly described his wife as “the perfect woman.”

He also has kids Shaun, Bradley, Brett, Stacey, Bobbi and Coco from previous relationships.

In his 2016 memoir called A Life In Football: My Autobiography, the 56-year-old opened up about his family life.

He reportedly explained: “I’ve got eight kids with four women. Two I married, two I didn’t.

“Sharon [Philips] is mum to my eldest boys, Shaun and Bradley Wright-Phillips. My third son is Brett.

“Then Deborah [Wright] and I got married in 1993 and we have a son, Stacey, and a daughter, Bobbi.

“My daughter Coco was born in 2006 and I support her but play no other part in her or her mother’s life.

“And I married Nancy [Hallam] in 2011, and we have two daughters, Lola and Roxanne.”

He added: “I didn’t set out for it to be like that. I wanted to get married just once and never planned to have so many children in so many different circumstances.”

Has Ian Wright been married before?

Ian was married once before to Debbie Martin who he tied the knot with back in 1993.

She is mum to his son, Stacey, and their daughter, Bobbi.
