Is Nancy making a dig at 'loser' ex-boyfriend Sven?

Nancy Dell’Olio has made an embarrassing dig at ex-boyfriend Sven-Göran Eriksson by admitting that she’s faked orgasms in the past.

The flamboyant Italian dated Sven, 64, for around a decade until they split in 2007 and even stood by him when he was exposed for having affairs with Ulrika Jonsson and FA secretary Faria Alam.

But she appears to be getting her own back after making the cheeky revelation during an interview on This Morning.

I can’t remember the circumstances of faking it but he was trying and to make him feel better I faked it,’ says Nancy, 51.

Of course. Women are more complicated than men and it is more difficult for us to achieve orgasm.’

The dig comes after Nancy, who has appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and is keen to continue building a showbiz career, called her ex a ‘loser’ who is holding her back.

Life operates in terms of natural selection: there are winners and losers – Sven’s got no career, no status,’ the former lawyer tells The Telegraph.

Who cares about him any longer? He is the real loser. I’m eager to turn the page.

Sven’s become the dead weight that keeps me from soaring. I have too many exciting projects to get on with, I can’t let him get in the way.’
