A WOMAN who ended up “three-in-a-bed” with Andy Carroll has revealed that she had no idea who the footballer was.
Taylor Jane Wilkey, 27, didn't recognise the ex-Newcastle forward, 33, when they met in Dubai last week – insisting "he's hardly Jack Grealish".
Photos emerged of a bare-chested Carroll flanked in bed by two blondes during his stag do last week.
The Sun revealed how bar manager Taylor and fitness instructor Phoebe Robb, 26, ended up back at his luxury hotel room after a day of raucous boozing.

"All the lads seemed to be in PR or marketing, or had their own business, no one mentioned football.
“But then we realised it was Andy, I didn’t realise how well known he was, he’s hardly Jack Grealish or Marcus Rashford.”
Carroll spent the end of last season with Championship side West Bromwich Albion, scoring three goals in 14 games.
But the club recently announced it would not be offering him a new contract.

Taylor, from Scarborough, North Yorks, said his stag group had a table at Cove and were ordering bottles of vodka, jugs of sangria and downing trays of Jägermeister.
She added: “It was an amazing day, the booze was flowing and Andy seemed to be having a great time.
"He came over to chat to us and asked what we did, he seemed nice, a gentleman.
“But at no point did anyone mention it was a stag do, we were told it was a lads’ holiday. I didn’t know he was getting married.”
Taylor said Carroll took the party back to his suite at the Fairmont Palm hotel at the end of the night.
She explained how at around 5am she chose to take a selfie with a sleeping Carroll after being asked by her friends for the low-down of her night.
He came over to chat to us and asked what we did, he seemed nice, a gentleman. But at no point did anyone mention it was a stag do, we were told it was a lads’ holiday.
The bed incident has since enraged his bride-to-be Billi Mucklow, 33.
But Taylor, 27, insists the striker — as frustrated fans know well — did not score that night.
In a direct appeal to his heartbroken fiancée, she added: “I’m sorry, Billi, I know how it looks, but we didn’t have sex.
“She needs to know nothing sexual happened between me and Andy, I swear.
“He was a gentleman, he just had so much to drink and passed out on the bed.
“He didn’t try anything — and even if he had wanted to, he was too drunk.”
She added: “I should never have got myself in that situation, but nothing untoward happened.
“I just feel bad for taking photos — it was all meant to be a joke because Andy was so drunk, we were just having a laugh.”
Our revelations have caused friction between Carroll and former Towie star Billi.
After crisis talks over the weekend, she wiped Carroll from her WhatsApp profile and replaced it with a snap of their children.
