Gethin Jones responds to charges that he purposefully mislead followers with a fake wedding photo.
In an exclusive interview with This website, GETHIN JONES rebutted charges that he purposefully mislead followers by publishing a photo of himself wearing a gold band on his wedding finger, claiming that he “didn’t even believe” his Instagram post would generate such a sensation at the time.
Gethin Jones, 43, of BBC’s Morning Live and The One Show, has rejected suggestions that he “on purpose” provoked uncertainty among his 95,000 Instagram followers with his fake wedding photo. It comes after Gethin made headlines at the end of last year when he posted a photo of himself wearing a gold wedding band on his ring finger.
Fans were taken aback by the post, which led them to believe that the singer had married.
Gethin later clarified that he was “still single” and that he was just wearing the ring because he had spent the day filming a Christmas commercial with jewellery manufacturer Clogau.
Gethin has since stated that he was “rinsed quite a lot” after his incident by those who thought he shared the photo on purpose to create a frenzy online.
In an exclusive interview with This website, Gethin was asked if he was surprised by the response to his article, to which he replied, “Oh that went well didn’t it?! Jesus!
“Weirdly, I got a lot of backlash for that, with people saying things like, ‘You did that on purpose, it was an advertisement.’
“I was on a shoot for Clogau, a jewelry brand I’ve worked with for a long time, but I honestly didn’t give it a second thought.
“I know no one will believe me when I say that, but it’s typical of me; I didn’t even give it any thought.
“I left my phone, and when I returned, I was like, ‘Oh my God!’”
Gethin went on to say that after news outlets published pieces about his getting married as a result of the Instagram post, he was immediately overwhelmed with calls from his agency.
“I was like, ‘What?!'” says the author. As he recalled his chats with his representative, Gethin acknowledged.
“It’s like, who am I marrying today?” said the former Blue Peter presenter in response to other rumors about his dating status.
“I will never be able to fight my story.” Brinkwire Summary News.
