Wayne, 35, added that he is still grappling with the impact the scandal has had on him and his career. He said, “People still look at me differently.
“For me it is important that people remember me and not what I did.”

Wayne made headlines in 2004 after it was discovered he had visited three prostitutes at the age of 16.
It was alleged that he paid Charlotte Glover, then 21.140 pounds, to have sex with her in 2002. In the same month, he reportedly paid for sex with Gina McCarrick, then 37, and a grandmother who was wearing a rubber catsuit.
At the time both women were working in a brothel in Liverpool and he was caught by CCTV.
Wayne apologized and said, “Stupid, it seems now, I’ve visited massage parlors and prostitutes on occasion.

“I deeply regret it now and I hope people understand that it was the kind of mistake you make when you’re young and stupid. It was at a time when I was very young and immature.”
