Ben Stokes and his wife have slammed ‘nonsense’ claims that the cricket player attacked her at the 50th NatWest PCA Awards which saw him crowned player of the year.

Pictures from the event show Ben holding Clare around the neck and pushing her backwards but in response, the pair have insisted that the allegations are ‘nonsense’ and they regularly ‘squish each other’s face’ to ‘show affection’.

Taking to Twitter, Clare shared: ‘Unbelievable what nonsense these people will make up!

‘Me and Ben messing about squishing up each other’s faces cos that’s how we show affection and some pap tries to twist it in to a crazy story!

‘And all before we then have a romantic McDonalds 20 mins later!’

She tagged Ben in her tweet and he later retweeted and added a kissing emoji.

Clare and Ben became engaged in 2013 and married four years later in 2017; they are parents to a six-year-old son and four-year-old daughter.

He praised his ‘supportive’ wife after he helped England to win the Third Test match in the Ashes earlier in 2019.

‘Clare has been brilliant and so supportive throughout the years. Your family goes through everything with you, good and bad, so it is great to be able to celebrate with them at times like this,’ he said.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Ben and Durham County Cricket Club for comment.

‘You take a lot of personal pride when you receive this award because it’s your peers that vote for you,’ he said at the ceremony, accepting the awards which was voted for by his peers.

‘Earning this award is a huge moment and something I am very gracious of.’

To celebrate the occasion, the pair were later seen arriving back at their hotel with a bulging bag fg McDonalds.

His bag was full of delicious goodies including a box for a quarter pounder, but we wonder if he’s a fan of the mozzarella sticks or the new spicy nuggets?

The 28-year-old helped England win the World Cup for the first time earlier in 2019, when he made 84 not out in the final before he was chosen to bat in the tie-breaking super over.

He also made 135 runs to help England to a thrilling win the third Ashes Test against Australia at Headingley.

Stokes and his teammates also celebrated that win with food from the golden arches.

‘Me, Buttler, [Chris] Woakes, Burns and [Joe] Root all jumped in an Uber and got £55 worth of McDonald’s drive-thru on the way. There were quarter pounders and Filet-O-Fish flying everywhere,’ he said after.

However, the past 12 months have seen him found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

The sanction came after the England star was involved in a late-night brawl in the streets of Bristol in 2018.

Stokes accepted he had punched the two men on a night out, but said he was acting in the defence of Mr O’Connor and Mr Barry, who had suffered homophobic abuse.

In court, Stokes maintained that he heard Mr Ali and Mr Hale directing homophobic abuse at Mr O’Connor and Mr Barry. After two hours of deliberation, he was cleared of affray at Bristol Crown Court but still faced the cricket sanction from the CDC; he was fined £30,000 and banned for eight matches, all of which he had already served by that time.
