Gareth Gates Beats Stammer, Wants To Tell Jordan Sorry

‘Pop Idol’ season one runner-up spoke with The Sun about how he’s been able to conquer his stammer and what he had to say about his much talked about fling with balloon boobed pin-up Jordan.

But being able to speak has changed my life.” As for Jordan: “The truth is we did have a relationship. She was made to look foolish because I denied it all, and I regret that. I don’t blame her for slagging me off over it. I don’t regret my relationship with Jordan. I’ve never bumped into her anywhere but I do hope I will so I can have a chat with her and apologize.”
