The Footballer, His Wife and the Car Crash 3 November 2022: Thursday on ITVBe 11

This brand new documentary for ITVBe tells how the death of former premier league star Jlloyd Samuel left his wife questioning whether she knew her husband as shocking revelations of a double life emerged after he was killed in a horror crash.

With exclusive access to Jlloyd’s wife, Emma, and the people who had first-hand experience of the heady early Premier League era, this documentary reveals the truth behind the shocking story which has emerged since the player’s tragic death in 2018 when his Range Rover collided with a van and burst into flames, killing him instantly.

Jlloyd’s footballing dream that started on the streets of Bow in East London, became a nightmare, as gambling debts, injury and family tensions came to the fore – a cautionary tale of the reality of so many players, their wives and girlfriends and families in the newly glamorous first years of the premier league with the onset of big money deals and a culture of excess.
