BRADFORD (Park Avenue) made a signing with connections to a reality star this past week if you didn't know.

Striker Jacob Blyth, who is married to Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan, joined the Horsfall-based club on a one-year deal from Chorley.

Last month, the pair tied the knot in Ibiza after five years of being in a relationship. The couple got engaged in June 2019.

Hagan, 29, made her name on the MTV series featuring alongside the likes of Charlotte Crosby and Vicky Patterson.

She started out on the show in 2011 and remained a key figure for half a decade.

When she returned to the Newcastle-based programme in 2018, Blyth also appeared alongside her.

Last year upon leaving Oldham Athletic, our sister paper The Oldham Times said: "He (Blyth) has struggled to find roots and establish himself, and is arguably better known for starring in the television programme Geordie Shore as the fiance of Holly Hagan."

The 29-year-old has been somewhat of a football journeyman since leaving Leicester City in 2016.

The striker has been bouncing up and down the leagues in both England and Scotland.

Blyth hopes to have now found his home in BD6 despite being absent from last night's pre-season friendly against rivals Bradford City.

Wonder if his newlywed will be seen enjoying the Bradford nightlife anytime soon.

Speaking about signing for Bradford, Blyth said: “I am really happy to be joining Bradford (Park Avenue) and can’t wait to get going.

“Having spoken to Bows and (assistant manager) Danny Boshell, the project here is something that excites me.

“I’m looking forward to being with the lads and competing next season.”
