Speaking of their teenage romance, Wayne says in the documentary, “I think when I was about 11 or 12, I knew I wanted to marry him, and I told him at the time.” I said ‘when we grow up we’re going to get married and you’re going to have our children’. She was looking at me like ‘yeah good!’

Coleen agrees, admitting her husband: “He’s a charmer, growing up, that’s how he won me over. The more I said no, the more he said ‘I will have that date one day.’

Coleen remembers a young Wayne as ‘cheeky, full of confidence, always up for something… I always remember he used to hang around near my house and every once in a while his mum would yell in the street, ‘Wayne!’

Later in the documentary, Wayne and Coleen are seen overseeing renovations to their new Cheshire mansion, while thinking back to the first home they shared together when they were 17 in Formby, Merseyside.

“The thought of it all was nice and great, but obviously you were away every weekend and I was leaving my mom and crying all the way back to mine,” Coleen says. “It was all of a sudden and it was only a matter of months, it all happened.”

“We’ve always grown faster than expected, I think. We’ve had to try to be more sensible than most people and be aware of situations and what’s going on around us.

The couple are also seen talking honestly about the issues they faced in their marriage, including Wayne’s notorious brothel visits and the escort scandal.

Wayne’s wife of 14 years insists in the film that “I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t forgiven him” as she reflects on their 20-year relationship.

Reflecting on the tough times, Coleen concedes: “The first time around we were young so there was a lot of fighting.

Admitting she didn’t approve of the company Wayne kept as a young footballer, Coleen insists: “I knew the bands Wayne was hanging out with weren’t good for him.” Lovely people but together, with alcohol, not good and I told him that from day one.

“I didn’t want him to stop being friends with them, but I didn’t want him to date them because they were in bad situations.

“Alcohol is largely to blame and still is, to this day with things that have happened recently. It’s not a good thing for Wayne to be unsupervised.”

Wayne is also seen discussing the period, admitting, “I put myself in the wrong place and when you’re in the wrong place and there’s alcohol involved, you’re going to make bad decisions and you’re going to have to suffer and deal with the consequences.

“That’s what happened, it doesn’t take away from my love for Coleen, it happened. It was a bad decision to make, I raised my hand and we worked on it.
