'He's an idiot when he's drunk': Gavin Henson's ex Carianne Barrow puts the boot in again following Cardiff rugby team axe
08:15 GMT, 10 April 2012
They split up last year after apparently finding love on The Bachelor and they've been locked in a bitter war of words ever since.
And now Gavin Henson's ex, who he chose as 'The One' on The Bachelor, has taken a dig at the fallen rugby star yet again after he was axed from the Cardiff team for his drunken behaviour.
The blonde TV star has stuck the boot in by calling him 'an idiot' who can't handle his drink.
Speaking out: Gavin Henson's ex from The Bachelor, Carianne Barrow, has blasted him for being 'an idiot' when he's drunk following his sacking from his Cardiff rugby team
In a new interview for new! magazine, Carianne has opened up more about her six-month relationship with the sports man.
And she has chastised him for failing to get his boozing under control.
She told the magazine about his behaviour when he's under the influence and said: 'He's an idiot. Just really annoying, uncontrollable and won't listen.
'It was like babysitting a small child.'
'The One': Carianne was picked by Gavin on the Channel 5 show, but they split last year
Carianne explained that Gavin wouldn't drink often, but when he did he would take it too far, and admitted she thinks he is 'too selfish' to be in a relationship.
She added: 'He doesn’t know when to stop. We were together for six months and, as a rule, he didn’t drink much. But when he did, he drank uncontrollably. He couldn’t handle his alcohol.'
Her comments come just a week after Henson was dropped from his team Cardiff Blues, following his drunken behaviour on a flight back from Glasgow a few days before.
Charlotte Church's ex, 30, apologised for his actions saying
he was 'truly embarrassed' but he has been dismissed with immediate
effect following a meeting of the Blues management.
The club described his behaviour as 'unacceptable' and cancelled his eight-month contract.
And now Carianne, who was picked by Gavin on the UK series of The Bachelor, has described him as 'argumentative' when he's had alcohol.
Speaking out: Carianne spoke to new! magazine as she blasted his behaviour
She added: 'I just feel sorry for him really. He knows he can’t really handle his drink, which is one of the reasons he doesn’t drink a lot.
'But when he does drink, he drinks in excess, sometimes to the point where he’ll only stop when he’s passed out.'
Barrow also blasted comments made by him that they remain friends and insisted they haven't spoken since the break up.
She told the magazine: 'It’s bulls**t. We’re not friends. We don’t speak. I feel sorry for him. I think he’s really shallow. He treated me like an idiot.'
And it's not the first time she's slated the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant.
She has previously slammed him for being 'boring, weird and spineless'.
Carianne said: 'It was so boring. I'm really loud with
a lot of energy, but when I was around him I had to dull myself right
'If we weren't sat in silence, we'd be talking about the weather.
It made me realise just how little time we'd spent together on the show.
'Gavin didn't like it when I danced
around the house, singing and having fun – he'd stare at me and ask if I
was OK. He also stopped me from doing quite a few modelling or TV jobs,
telling me it wasn't good for my profile. I went along with it because I
was in love.'
