Rachel Hunter denies Ryan Giggs rumours

Rachel Hunter has her own Bill Clinton moment - "I did not have sexual relations with that man".

New Zealand model Rachel Hunter has insisted that she never slept with Manchester United football star Ryan Giggs.

There have been rumours circulating for 10 years that Giggs and Hunter hooked up at the World Sports Awards in Monaco.

Since Giggs was outed in the British parliament this week as the footballer who is alleged to have had an affair with Welsh model and Big Brother star, Imogen Thomas, stories of Giggs former conquests have been doing the rounds in the British tabloids.

Rachel Hunter is adament though. Speaking to the New Zealand Herald newspaper, Hunter said “I never slept with Ryan Giggs. That rumour started in Monaco years ago, so please inform them [the people] of that. I have met him, but that was it.”

In 2001, it was reported that Giggs was infatuated with Hunter and that he had been bombarding the model with phone calls.

At the time of their meeting at the world sports awards, Hunter had been separated from her former husband Rod Stewart and Giggs had recently broken with his girlfriend.

The UK’s Sun newspaper reported that the Manchester United star “really, really liked her” and that he thought she was beautiful. Great use of the word ‘really’ from the Sun there.
