Lizzie Cundy tried to set up Meghan Markle and footballer Ashley Cole right after split from wife Ch

Before sliding into Matt Cadle's DM, Meghan Markle could have ended up in a relationship with Ashley Cole, Lizzie Cundy revealed during Friday's This Morning.

After coming to London searching for a British boyfriend, former Suits star Meghan finally ended up with Prince Harry and their newborn baby, Archie,

Liz told This Morning hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that, 'I didn’t know who Meghan was,’

‘This was before Harry, a few years before Harry, and they said, “Lizzie, will you sit next to this girl, she doesn’t know anyone in London”. I was like, “Who is she? I haven’t got a clue.”’

‘We got on like a house on fire,’ insisted Lizzie.

‘She was so funny, really loved London and she wanted to find a boyfriend.

‘I did actually say, “Do you like footballers?” So I gave her my phone and Ashley Cole, because he’d just split up with Cheryl and they look kind of similar.

I was getting that together, I was making the call to Ashley. He was like, “Who is she?”’ Imagine what could have been…

Lizzie’s bombshell comes after it was revealed Meghan asked to meet up with X Factor winner Matt Cardle just months before meeting prince Harry when Matt started following her on Instagram.

A source close to Matt claimed that, 'Matt couldn’t believe a Hollywood star like Meghan would even know who he was so he was very flattered and they chatted a little bit online before she suggested meeting up,’

alleging that the former Suits star was in London at the time.

But Matt Cadle then met his girlfriend Amber Hernaman and ‘ghosted’ Meghan.

The insider told The Sun that, 'It felt like there could have been a connection but the timing was wrong. He didn’t reply to her last message.’

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.

My view: Oh wow just wow, ex WAG Lizzie Cundy likes to expose her famous ex friend, Meghan Markle, while Meghan Markle loves dumping and ghosting some of her ex C-list friends especially the ones that are too low-class for her new royal lifestyle. So MM decided to go for posh Victoria Beckham instead of Lizzie Cundy, they were both ex WAGS. Lizzie is now paying MM back and playing Meghan's game of using people to climb the social ladder, while Lizzie Cundy is using Meghan's name and past juicy stories to sell her sensational book. Handsome Footballer Ashley Cole missed out hooking up with MM, because her friends told her he was a womanizer, according to Meghan. But Lizzie Cundy revealed in her book that she actually called Ashley and told him about Meghan, the footballer didn't know who Meghan was at the time, so that was how they started following each other on social media. Lizzie Cundy's ex husband was a footballer. Her book launch boasts a glittering list of celebrities in London.
