Iama Premier League player Jermaine Jenas is being prosecuted for allegedly using his cell phone while driving.

The incident reportedly took place while Jenas was driving a black Range Rover in London on October 14 last year. The 39-year-old’s case will be heard behind closed doors at Bromley Magistrates Court on Friday and he could receive a driving ban and a fine if found guilty.

The One Show host is prosecuted in accordance with the single justice procedure. He allegedly drove the vehicle in Marsh Lane, Stanmore “when he was using an interactive communication device at the time, a portable mobile device,” according to court documents.

Jenas is best known for representing Nottingham Forest, Newcastle, Tottenham, Aston Villa and QPR during his professional career, making 280 Premier League appearances. He also won 21 senior caps for England, winning once against Switzerland in February 2008.

The former midfielder won the League Cup with Tottenham in 2008 and was named the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2003. His career effectively ended in April 2014 – at the age of 31 – after suffering a serious knee injury in training. He never played professional football again.

Jenas became a football expert and performer after his career ended. He was named as the regular host of The One Show in 2021. He recently made the draw for this year’s World Cup and was overturned to replace Gary Lineker as host of Match of the Day.

Those who use their phone in an emergency or for contactless payment are exempt. The law also does not apply to those who are parked or using a device to park their vehicle remotely.

Several ex-athletes moved to performance after withdrawing from competition. Peter Crouch, Andrew Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp, Ian Wright, Dion Dublin, Alex Scott and Mirror Sport columnist Sam Quek are among those who have led a television show.
