Wayne Rooney is "really enjoying" his community service

Wayne Rooney is

Wayne Rooney has spoken for the first time about his drink-drive shame, declaring it a "stupid mistake".

Rooney pleaded guilty to drink driving at Stockport Magistrates' Court following an incident in the early hours of September 1, having visited a cocktail bar in Cheshire.

Rooney was stopped while driving the auto that belonged to Laura Simpson - who has since found fame following the incident - while his pregnant wife Coleen, was away.

Wayne Rooney was also banned from driving for two years following the incident in September, in which he was at the wheel of a vehicle three times over the legal limit.

As well as a driving ban and community service, the incident also almost led to the break-down of Roo's marriage to Coleen, who was reportedly furious at his behaviour. I held my hands up. "I made a mistake", Rooney told Talksport. 'I've got children and it is not nice for them to see that'.

But Rooney, 32, said he has learned from it - and is loving community work at a garden centre.

He said: "I'm still doing it and am about halfway through it".

"It's a refreshing place to go and it's relaxing, you're working with people, doing different things which I wouldn't have done if I didn't go there, so it's been great going there". The Toffees are in action again on Monday night when they face Swansea, looking to keep up their unbeaten run under Allardyce. The staff there are doing a fantastic job and when I go they make me feel really welcome.

Asked if he received any backlash as a world-renowned footballer, he said: "We actually don't even talk about football in there".
