Andy Carroll, a former Premier League footballer was photographed lying in bed with a mysterious woman before his wedding to Billi Mucklow, a reality TV star.

Andy Carroll, pictured lying on a pillow beside a woman, has been viralized just days before his marriage to Billi Mucklelow.

The photo is harmless fun, though, as it was taken during the Dubai stag party for nine-cap England international. Nearly eight years after the proposal by former Liverpool striker, Carroll is expected to wed The Only Way is Essex star Billi.

After a long day at Dubai’s Cove Beach Club, Carroll took this awkward photo with Taylor Jane Wilkey, the bar manager. According to reports, he invited Carroll and her two friends to another venue before returning to his hotel for an evening party.

This is when it is believed that Carroll was seen lying down next to Taylor. Another image of Taylor wearing his personal robe is also taken.

Taylor said to The Sun, “It was an aprèsparty.” “We all went back home to his hotel. Andy, Andy and my female friend were there. He didn’t stay with me, it was not like that. There were three of us in this room. It was a long day, and it was also a night of drinking. It was our 12th time at Cove Beach. It was a very boozy day. Andy was hot, it was all of us drunk.

Taylor continued: “We returned to Andy’s suite in the hotel and played some music, then he went to bed and fell asleep. I was there with my friend up until the early hours of the morning and took the picture as a joke.

“My friends back home were berating me so I snapped that photo for a joke and sent it to them. There was nothing sexual. It was just banter.

Carroll, who was just released by West Brom, was in Dubai to gatecrash Billi’s hen party before setting up his own stag-do celebrations after his partner returned to England. Former Newcastle striker team-mates Mark Gillespie, Paul Dummett were reported to have been part of the stag party.
