Abbey Clancy reveals 'deep fear of water'

March 12, 2012 - London

Abbey Clancy says that unlike husband Peter Crouch, she is very afraid of the sea and looking at it makes her sick.

She describes her Stoke City footballer hubby as being "like a fish".

"I've always had a deep fear of the water. Peter's the opposite. He's like a fish. When we were on holiday recently in Ibiza, he persuaded me to try scuba diving. I've never been so terrified in my life," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

However, the model and TV personality is glad she didn't let fear keep her from enjoying something "incredible".

"We were taken out on a boat and I had to do a backflip into the water. Once I was in, it felt amazing though. I went right to the bottom of the sea and swam through these caves. I'm proud of the fact that I didn't allow my fear to let me miss out on an incredible experience.

"Next I want to conquer my fear of heights. I'd quite like to jump out of a plane," she said.
