TV personality Ulrika Jonsson has confessed she once spent the night with songwriter and actor Frank Stallone, the brother of Rocky star Sylvester
Ulrika Jonsson has revealed she once spent the night with Sylvester Stallone’s brother.
The 54-year-old TV presenter told how she enjoyed a night of passion with Frank Stallone after going on a date with the songwriter and actor who is 17 years her junior.
During an interview on Vicky Pattison’s podcast The Secret To, Ulrika was quizzed about her love life and told her Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins co-star that she ended up going on a date with the Hollywood hunk because he had told work colleagues he fancied her.
“I am so intrigued about your love life. Is everyone? Do you get this off everyone? Tell me who the most famous person you’ve kissed is? Because that’s what I want to know really,” Vicky asked.
“Oh my god. I don’t even know. See I can’t remember these things Vicky,” she laughed, before recalling her romp with the star.
“I had a date with – this is before I was even famous actually so I don’t know how this happened – a date with Sylvester Stallone’s brother,” Ulrika confessed to the stunned host.
“F*** off. That’s so good. Is he handsome?” Vicky exclaimed.
Ulrika went on to reveal she met Frank when she was working as a secretary for ITV’s breakfast show TV-am more than 30 years ago, because he was a guest on the programme.
“I was like 20 or something… He like, let it be known to the showbiz section that he’d like to take me out,” Ulrika explained.
“Honestly, I was so green and naive I had no idea, so I went to some premiere or something with him. I do think I still slept with him as well,” she quipped.
While she didn’t reveal the name of Frank, he is the only sibling of Sylvester Stallone, and is 17 years older than Ulrika.
She went on to admit that she got a “bit carried away” working on the breakfast show in the early days of her career, and was “swept up” in the showbiz environment.
“It goes back to that thing if you’re working in that environment you have celebrities coming in all the time. You feel like you’re a part of something. You get kind of, I guess a bit swept up in it,” Ulrika said.
She began her TV career on the ITV breakfast show in 1989, and became a household name thanks to her stint as weather girl on the channel’s flagship news programme Good Morning Britain.
Frank Stallone, now 71, is a Grammy nominated singer/songwriter, and has composed songs for many of his older brother’s movies.
He’s also starred in the Rocky saga, Get Carter and American Mobster.
