Laura Woods got more than she bargained for during a recent radio phone-in, after a Premier League star admitted he had a crush on her live on air.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek took part on Woods’ show on TalkSPORT and played a game of ‘SOS’ alongside co-host Ally McCoist.
The Chelsea player was asked to put himself in a number of different situations and asked to pick a teammate or a manager that would deal with the scenario in the best way.

It comes after Woods single-handedly shut down a Spurs fan online.
In a Twitter exchange that has since gone viral, one Tottenham supporter told Woods to "bore off" before calling her a "woke Arsenal b****". The comments came after Woods celebrated her team's 3-0 win against Fulham on 12 March.
In response, Woods savagely hit back, "Insulting me still won’t make your team fun to watch, Julian," which was immediately flooded with people in hysterics.
Boxer Leon Mckenzie responded: "Although you shouldn’t even reply, to foolishness….I actually enjoy the humour when you do," while another joked: "'Got re-tweeted and owned by Laura Woods' I think Spurs fans count that as a trophy."
Piers Morgan even chimed in with laughing emojis and a thumbs-up.
