Rebecca Vardy Laila Rouass Amber Gates Love BBC show actress Rebecca Vardy Laila Rouass Amber Gates Love

Footballers' Wives' Laila Rouass insists the show was 'tame' compared to real life

She shot to fame in Footballers’ Wives, the noughties drama whose storylines were so ludicrous it became a cult hit. Laila Rouass played glamorous bisexual Amber Gates, whose baby was swapped at birth by a midwife who had been bribed by her rival, found out husband Conrad had been cheating on her after finding the letter T scratched on to his buttocks and faked her own kidnap to get back with him.

But the actress believes that rather than being hilariously far-fetched, the show she starred in for two years was actually ahead of its time.

Laila, who joined the show in 2004, says: “Some people said it was outrageous, but when you read now what footballers have been up to, you realise that we were tame.
