A WOMAN who ended up ‘three in a bed’ with Andy Carroll has revealed she had no idea who the footballer was.
Taylor Jane Wilkey, 27, didn’t recognize the ex-Newcastle striker, 33, when they met in Dubai last week – insisting “he’s hardly Jack Grealish”.
Photos surfaced of a shirtless Carroll flanked in bed by two blondes during his bachelorette party last week.
The Sun revealed how bar manager Taylor and fitness instructor Phoebe Robb, 26, ended up back in their luxury hotel room after a day of bingeing.
But Taylor, who insists nothing sexual happened, admitted she had no idea how famous Carroll was.
She recalls, “To be honest, we didn’t even know Andy Carroll was part of the group when we first met her.
“All the guys seemed to be in PR or marketing or had their own business, nobody mentioned football.
“But then we realized it was Andy, I didn’t know how well known he was, he’s hardly Jack Grealish or Marcus Rashford.”
Carroll spent the end of last season with championship team West Bromwich Albion, scoring three goals in 14 games.
But the club recently announced that they would not offer him a new contract.
Taylor, from Scarborough, North Yorks, said his bachelor party group got a table in Cove and ordered bottles of vodka, jugs of sangria and trays of Jagermeister.
She added: “It was a great day, the alcohol was flowing and Andy seemed to be having a blast.
“He came over to chat with us and asked what we were doing, he seemed nice, a gentleman.
“But at no point did anyone mention it was a bachelorette party, we were told it was a boys’ holiday. I didn’t know he was getting married.”
Taylor said Carroll took the party back to his suite at the Fairmont Palm Hotel at the end of the night.
She explained how she decided to take a selfie with a sleeping Carroll around 5am after being asked by her friends for the facts of her night.
He came over to chat with us and asked what we were doing, he seemed nice, a gentleman. But at no point did anyone mention it was a stag party, we were told it was a boys’ holiday.
The bed incident has since infuriated his bride-to-be Billi Mucklow, 33.
But Taylor, 27, insists – as frustrated fans well know – the striker failed to score that night.
In a direct appeal to his heartbroken fiancee, she added: “I’m sorry Billi I know how it looks but we didn’t have sex.
“She needs to know that nothing sexual happened between me and Andy, I swear.
“He was a gentleman, he just had so much to drink and passed out on the bed.
“He didn’t try anything – and even if he wanted to, he was too drunk.”
She added: “I should never have put myself in this situation but nothing out of the ordinary has happened.
“I just feel bad for taking pictures – it was all meant as a joke because Andy was so drunk we just laughed.”
Our revelations have caused friction between Carroll and former Towie star Billi.
After crisis talks over the weekend, she deleted Carroll from her WhatsApp profile and replaced it with a snapshot of her children.
The couple are set to marry this Sunday, but it was unclear if the wedding will go ahead.
Those close to Billi say she is willing to fight to keep her family together. But she tells Andy to “hand over everything” in terms of the pictures to save their wedding.
