Joe Westerman’s wife has said the thought of kissing him makes her want to vomit after seeing footage of him performing a sex act on a woman in an alleyway behind Greggs.
The Castleford Tigers loose forward, 33, has told Lauren Westerman, 33, that ‘words will never ever explain how sorry I am’ for the unsavoury incident with a blonde estate agent after a night out in Pontefract town centre.
Ms Westerman had said she would ‘never be able to get it out of my mind’ after telling friends her marriage is ‘one trillion per cent finished’. She insists Westerman knows ‘there’s no coming back’ from his sex scandal.
She said: ‘Truth is, he only told me because it was on social media. But I’m glad it was found because the thought of kissing him after that just makes me feel sick.’
Lauren has said Westerman sent her a series of grovelling texts to try and save their marriage.

His angry wife said the video has caused irreparable harm to her and their three children, one of whom is 14, but she added she was ‘glad’ she had seen it.
In texts sent to her, Westerman said: ‘I can’t explain what happened cos I physically can’t remember.
‘It’s disgusting and I now have to live with it forever. Losing you and the kids is heart-breaking Lauren, you deserve so much better. You always said alcohol would f*** me up.’
His wife replied that she had warned him about his drinking. He replied: ‘Story of my life. I miss you like crazy. U was perfect.
‘I need you to know I can’t remember anything about that night. I look like a zombie.’
Ms Westerman spent Valentine’s Day alone with their three children, saying she felt ‘so sorry’ for them after they were cruelly sent the video on Snapchat by other children at their school.
The woman in the video is thought to be the wife of one of the rugby league star’s best friends and has now lost her job following the incident, according to Ms Westerman.

She told The Sun: ‘There are absolutely no excuses for what he’s done, not just to me but to our children and wider family.
‘I went on to Twitter and saw it had been deleted and deleted loads of times and then about half an hour later it was posted.
‘I just felt physically sick.’
Ms Westerman said Westerman had confessed to his actions the following day after he had been caught in the video following a day-long drinking session.
He later made a grovelling public apology to his family and friends after the graphic video went viral on Twitter.
Speaking about the woman in the video, Ms Westerman said: ‘It’s the children I feel for. Our children and her children.
‘She’ll never live it down. She’s lost her job and there are memes of her sweeping the internet, her children are going to see that.’
Ms Westerman said she has been left ‘numb’ over the incident.
The pair married in 2014 and have three children together.
It’s believed Westerman has also been shunned by his so-called best friend who he has known for many years.
Ms Westerman said her marriage to the rugby star is over after his actions, saying: ‘The thought of kissing him after that just makes me feel sick’

She reportedly told friends: ‘There’s no way you can come back after something so horrific.
‘It is one trillion per cent finished.
