Heathrow. Inset,
angry tweet
from passenger
DONALD Trump’s close
adviser Jared Kushner had
at least three undisclosed
talks with the Russian
ambassador to the United
States, according to seven
current and ex-US officials.
These are believed to have
happened during and after
the 2016 presidential campaign and included two
phone calls between April
and November last year.
The new information, as
well as other details, sheds
light on why Mr Kushner,
who is the president’s sonin-law, first attracted FBI
attention over whether
there was any collusion
between
the
Trump
campaign and the Kremlin.
It also shows that his
contacts
with
Russian
envoy Sergey Kislyak, who
Mr Kushner met at Trump
Tower in December to
establish “a line of communication”,
were
more
extensive than the White
House acknowledged.
While the FBI is looking
into Mr Kushner’s Russian
contacts, he is not a target
of that investigation.
His lawyer Jamie Gorelick claimed Mr Kushner
did not remember any calls
with Mr Kislyak between
April and November.
He said: “Mr Kushner has
no recollection of the calls
as described. We have asked
for the dates of such alleged
calls so we may look into it
them and respond.”

Police said the group was
“approached by a number
of suspects possibly on

Some frustrated passengers were
stuck on the tarmac at Heathrow
for hours. Others were stranded on
planes in Rome, Belfast and Bulgaria
by the “very severe disruption”.
A BA spokesman apologised and
vowed to tackle the problem.
But passengers blasted “disgraceful” customer service and said the
meltdown had created “carnage”.
Terry Page, 28, from London, was
booked on to a flight to Texas but
was stranded in a Heathrow queue
for two hours.
He claimed BA “made no

isn’t working either.”
Philip Bloom, who was stuck on
board a Heathrow-Belfast flight,
added: “We haven’t been told very
much, just that there is a worldwide computer system failure.”
BA could face huge compensation
claims. A spokesman said: “We

then I asked him to take us to the

THE parents of Manchester bombing victim Georgina Callander joined
hundreds of supporters to release
yellow balloons in her memory.
Dad Simon and mum Lesley paid their
tearful tribute to the 18-year-old in the city’s
St Ann’s Square.
Georgina, an Ariana Grande fan who had been
pictured with the star, died in hospital on Monday
night with her mother by her side.
Lesley told of her anguish at seeing Georgina’s
life slip away. She said: “I was just screaming and
shouting at her. I was rubbing her hands, I was
rubbing her tummy, I was rubbing her face.”
She added: “It was just a flicker of hope that she’d
move her hand or move her leg or try and open her
eyes a little, just to acknowledge that I was there,
just to let me know that she was very, very poorly
but she knew that I was there.”
Dad Simon told a mum who was hugging her son
at yesterday’s tribute: “Look after him, because
you never know.”
The show of support in Manchester came as
Brits refused to be cowed by the terror threat.
Dozens of events are taking place all weekend.
Yesterday, football fans packed Wembley Stadium
as Arsenal beat Chelsea in the FA Cup Final.
Arsenal fan Mike Purtill, 51, said: “I do feel safe. I
don’t think you can allow something like that to
stop you going on with your day-to-day life.”
The Aviva Premiership rugby union final
between Wasps and Exeter Chiefs also went ahead
at Twickenham.
Manchester is today hosting the Great Manchester
Run and the Great City Games has been running
all weekend.
And thousands flocked to the Chelsea Flower
Show, Birmingham Pride and Radio 1’s Big
Weekend in Hull.
After a minute’s silence to remember the victims
who lost their lives, Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw
told the crowd: “After that we’re going to make as
much noise as we can, to defiantly make a really
loud noise as a community of music lovers, to
show that we are here for everyone affected by
that.”
Assistant Police Commissioner Mark Rowley
said officers had reviewed security at more than
1,300 events around the country ahead of the bank
holiday weekend.
Yesterday, PM Theresa May revealed the terror
threat had been downgraded after a spate of
arrests following the atrocity.
But hospitals have remained on high alert, while
armed police have been seen patrolling trains and
beaches.
Police urged people to go about their bank holiday
break as usual.
Mr Rowley added: “Go out as you planned. Enjoy
yourselves and be reassured by the greater policing
presence you will see.
‘We can’t let the terrorists win by dissuading us
from going about our normal business.”

Mother of
POLICE have been accused of
ignoring a warning bomber Salman
Abedi had links to a “rape gang”
with terrorist connections.
Abedi, 22, was teenage pals with Bilal
Ahmed, jailed last year for his part in the
gang rape of a 16-year-old girl.
The suicide bomber behind Monday’s
Manchester Arena attack, in which
22 people were killed, had been
photographed sitting with Ahmed
as teenagers in Manchester.
In 2013, Ahmed and two friends
took turns raping a schoolgirl
they lured into a hotel room
during a game of hide and seek.
Last night, the mother of their
victim, who cannot be named, said
she reported members of the group,
including Abedi, to police last year.
She said they failed to follow up her
lead because they were “under-resourced”.
The mum said known extremist Abdullahi
Ahmed Jama Farah was another associate of
the killer.
Farah was jailed last year after creating a
terrorist “communications hub” in his mother’s
house in Fallowfield, Manchester.
The rape victim’s 50-year-old mum, from
Cheshire, said: “The moment I heard Salman’s
name, I just knew it. I just had a feeling that
there would be a link.
“They are all friends, they are all connected.
Jama hung around with those who raped my
daughter and obviously so did this person
responsible for the attack on the Arena.
“They are all bad eggs. They are all connected.
They are all rotten. They are all friends and they
are ending up terrorists and rapists. I can’t
understand why the police can’t follow it up.
“I was watching TV when I saw that Jama had
been convicted of terrorism. I knew he hung
around with the gang who raped my daughter
and I thought, ‘Blimey, if he is a terrorist, then
others in the group could be too’.”
She added: “I phoned the terror police and
reported it. This was February last year.
“I phoned the same officer I reported it to and
confronted him on Tuesday on this. He said he
remembered speaking to me about it.
“I looked the gang up on Facebook when I saw

commit a terrorist act and Salman clearly has.”
The mother has spoken out to encourage
others to report any suspicions about
potential extremists.
She added: “People are scared to
say stuff like this as they are
scared of being called racist.
“After reporting it I wasn’t
convinced police did anything.
“Now I see Salman, who clearly
hung around with them, has
become a suicide bomber.
“They are not acting on it due to
their lack of resources.”
The rape victim was a gifted
musician who was introduced to the

‘I warned police of

DAILY STAR SUNDAY, May 28, 2017
concerns about Abedi pals as police release fiend’s final photo
MONSTER ON
HIS WAY
TO KILL
THIS is Salman Abedi minutes
before he murdered 22 people
with a backpack bomb.
Police released the final image of the
Manchester attacker last night following
more raids against his terror network.
It shows the suicide bomber walking
through Manchester on his way to carry out
the massacre at a pop concert filled with
young people.
The release of the photo came as Theresa
May downgraded the terrorist threat level,
prompting speculation police have smashed
the gang behind the attack.
The Prime Minister said the move from
“critical” to “severe” came after “a significant
amount of police activity”.
The decision by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre [JTAC] indicates a fresh attack is
“highly likely”, rather than “imminent”.
It also means that 1,100 troops deployed on
the streets are likely to be withdrawn from
tomorrow night.
Speaking after an emergency Cobra
committee meeting yesterday, Mrs May said:
“The public should be clear about what this
means – a threat level of severe means an
attack is highly likely.
“The country should remain vigilant.”
She sanctioned a “gradual withdrawal” of
Operation Temperer, which saw servicemen
and women supporting the police.
As officers continued their terror hunt
yesterday, two men, aged 20 and 22, became
the latest to be arrested.
They were seized in Cheetham Hill, north
Manchester, in an operation which saw the
bomb disposal unit carry out a controlled
explosion.
There are 11 men in custody in connection
with the attack at a concert by US pop star
Ariana Grande at Manchester Arena on
Monday night.
British-Libyan Abedi caused carnage by
setting off a bomb packed with screws and
ball-bearings, leaving more than 100
people injured.
Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, Britain’s leading antiterror officer, said of the latest activity: “The
high pace and rapid progress of this investigation is continuing.
“There are 17 searches either concluded or
continuing on various addresses, largely in
the north west of the country.
“We are getting a greater understanding of
the preparation of the bomb.
“There is still much more to do. There will
be more arrests.”
His comments were echoed by Greater
Manchester’s Chief Constable Ian Hopkins,
who claimed “significant progress”.
He added that “key players” allegedly
connected to the atrocity had been arrested.
Yesterday bomb disposal experts were also
called to a street in Manchester’s Moss Side.
Neighbours reported hearing
an explosion and seeing a
man being taken away
but police did not
confirm
whether
anyone was arrested.
Locals said they thought
® EXCLUSIVE

Abedi had been performing witchcraft at a
flat he used as a “bomb factory”.
Mohammed El-Hudarey, a friend of the
property’s landlord Aimen Elwafi, said a
window in the tower-block apartment in
Blackley, north Manchester, had not been
opened for two months.
Mr El-Hudarey said: “We didn’t even
think 1% he was a terrorist or a
bomb-maker.
“We thought he must have been a drug
dealer or doing witchcraft.”
Abedi moved into the flat around
three months ago and moved out six
weeks before the attack.
Mr Elwafi was said to have been
“shocked and very upset” after
finding out Abedi was the bomber
and contacted police.
Officers urged anyone who saw
Abedi in the days before the
attack to come forward.
They believe one of the last
locations he visited on Monday
was a flat he was renting in
central Manchester.
‘No trial’
camps
planned
THOUSANDS of
®
British terror
suspects could be held
in special camps under
a crackdown on jihadis,
the Daily Star Sunday
has learned.
It comes as the SAS
prepares to re-form a
special unit called Task
Force Black with Home
Office permission to use
lethal force.
The option of locking
up suspected terrorists
without trial in internment camps if the
security situation in
Britain deteriorates was
discussed last week,
according to Government sources.
MI5 has revealed
there are 23,000
extremists living in
Britain and its agents
are at full stretch
following last week’s
Manchester bombing.
Calls for a form of
temporary internment
came during a meeting
of Cobra – the Government’s crisis management committee.
The tactic was last
used from 1971 to 1975
in Northern Ireland
®
during the Troubles
when almost 2,000
suspected IRA members
were detained without
trial.
One source said last
night: “Those
detained would be held
in special camps, they
would not be prisoners
and in some cases they
would simply be off the
streets for a matter of
days, not weeks or
months.
“It would be a deeply
controversial move and
does not yet have full
Government support.”
Colonel Richard Kemp,
who chaired the Cobra
committee’s intelligence
group, is a supporter of
the plan.
He said: “There is an
option for British
citizens who are
strongly suspected by
the intelligence services
of being involved in
terrorism but who we
cannot put in front of a
court because we don’t
have sufficient evidence,
and that is internment.”
The latest move to
combat terrorists
comes with the reformation of the SAS
Task Force Black.
The 80-strong squad
will operate closely with
police firearms officers
but special forces
commandos will lead
any assault on suspects.

PRINCE Harry is searching
for a home with Meghan
Markle – but there must be
space for a polo field.
He is keen to put down roots
near William and Kate’s Anmer
Hall in Norfolk.
Harry is said to be considering a
few properties but advisors have
been told there must be room for him
to practise his horsey hobby.
A source told the Daily Star Sunday:
“Harry has family on his mind more
than ever.
“Until now he’s been busy
with the Invictus Games,
his appointments and his
other charity work so
his
cottage
in
Kensington
Palace
has been more than
enough for him.
“But
with
an
engagement looming and potentially
the patter of tiny feet,
Harry is house-hunting big time.
“None of the properties
are too big or ostentatious
– that’s not his style. But agents
have been briefed there needs to be
enough land for a polo field. That’s
always been his dream.
“He wants a relaxed country pad he
can retreat to at weekends to join his
wife and kids, entertain his mates
and live a normal life.”
Grade II listed 17th Century
Twyford Hall near Dereham is said
to be a frontrunner for Harry,
who loves its relaxed, shabby chic
splendour.
With eight bedrooms and six reception rooms there is room for a

family to grow – and the selfcontained lodge on site is perfect for
weekend guests.
There is also 70 acres of parkland
and woodland for Harry’s equestrian
plans.
Our source said: “Harry loves the
fact Twyford Hall needs a little work
so he can really put his stamp on the
property and make it his home.
“And he loves all the natural woodland and grounds, a world away from
busy Kensington Palace and
London.”
Meghan is said to
favour the more-established Guist Hall, a
stylish
Georgian
manor house with
lavish gardens.
But the place is
lacking the grounds
Harry wants, with
just 10 acres to play
with.
However, it is just a
short drive to Burnham

couple’s
favourite foodie hot spot.
We revealed earlier this month
that Meghan fell for the delis in

loves anything quaint.
“She’s blown away by our
country’s historical and
architectural beauty but, as
a stylish woman, she is
leaning towards the more
sophisticated properties.”

FALLEN star John Leslie
is in talks to appear on
Celebrity Big Brother.
He hopes the show will help
to reignite his TV career.
® by JAMES INGHAM Showbiz Editor
CELEBRITY Big Brother chiefs
are struggling to sign up
housemates for the new series
because they want huge fees.
Channel 5 hope to bring back
former fans’ favourites and winners
Stephen Bear and Charlotte Crosby,
pictured below.
But the 27-year-olds are believed to
want more than £750,000 each.
The pair, who are now dating, have
previously proved huge ratings
winners for the show.
Producers are desperate for them
to return but do not want to pay the
amounts they are demanding.
A show source said: “After last
year’s successful All Stars and New
Stars series, bosses want to do
something similar and bring back
Stephen and Charlotte.
“Not only are they popular
previous winners with fans they
are also now a couple. It would be TV
gold to get them in the house.”
The latest series will reportedly
feature new faces alongside some
previous contestants in what has
been dubbed the Summer of

never do reality TV, he
thinks a stint inside
the Big Brother
house will change
his fortunes.
A source said: “John
was approached a few
months back. He always said
he’d never do reality TV but he
now feels that he’s got nothing to
lose. Big Brother is known for its
controversial housemates, and
bosses can’t wait to get him in the

Scots-born Leslie was a huge TV
® EXCLUSIVE by SUSAN HILL
star back in the 1990s after starting out on Blue Peter. He fronted
Wheel of Fortune before landing a
£350,000-a-year job on ITV daytime
show This Morning.
But his career was rocked in
2002 after Ulrika Jonsson claimed
she was raped by “an acquaintance”. Leslie’s name was
wrongly
linked
to
the allegation by
presenter Matthew
Wright on live TV.
Ulrika didn’t name
her attacker and Leslie
was never charged, but he
was axed from This Morning.
In 2003, he was accused of two
sex assaults on an actress in 1997.
He was subsequently cleared but
was then dogged by a sex tape
which emerged of him with
ex-girlfriend Abi Titmuss.
Leslie’s TV career dried up and
he lost everything. In 2008, another
unfounded rape accusation was
levelled at him. No charges were
brought, and he landed a job on
local radio in Edinburgh.
But in November 2015 Leslie was
suspended after a woman claimed
he had sexually assaulted her.
Once again, no charges were
brought. The source added: “After
the last allegation, John was
convinced that his broadcasting
career was over for good.
“All he’s ever wanted is to get
back on TV and Big Brother have
given him that lifeline. They also
reckon he’d be brilliant TV,
especially if he starts revealing
details of his wild party days.
“He’s been open about enjoying
three-in-a-bed sex, watching porn
and bedding a string of women,
but always maintained he was
100%innocent when it came to the
accusations.” Big Brother returns
to screens next month.

TRIBUTES: Gregg Allman
Tears for
seventies
hitmaker
MUSIC star Gregg Allman
has died aged 69 after a long
battle with ill health.
The singer-songwriter was
a founding member of ’70s
hitmakers The Allman
Brothers Band.
He was married five times,
including to the singer Cher
– mother of his son Elijah
Blue Allman.
His death was announced
on his website last night,
revealing he “passed away
peacefully at his home in
Savannah, Georgia”.
There were reports last
month that he had been
admitted to a hospice but it
was denied at the time by
his spokesman.
It is understood Gregg
was struck down with a
respiratory infection, a
hernia, irregular heartbeat
and had undergone a liver
transplant.
In March he cancelled all
of his 2017 tour dates
supporting his upcoming
album, titled Southern
Blood, due to poor health.
Close
friend
Michael
Lehman wrote online: “I
have lost a dear friend and
the world has lost a brilliant
pioneer in music.
“He was a kind and gentle
soul with the best laugh I
ever heard.”
Gregg formed The Allman
Brothers Band in 1969 with
brother Duane, using a mix
of Southern rock, blues,
jazz and country music to
deliver a string of hits.
The siblings had a series
of chart-toppers including
Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More
and Whipping Post.
Gregg leaves behind wife
Shannon, five children and
three grandchildren.
His website last night told
fans: “The family will
release a statement soon.”
BILL OF
‘JUMBO’
FAMILIES
SUPER-SIZED
families
are costing taxpayers
millions in benefits.
A record number of households with ten or more children
get an average of almost £10,000
a year in housing benefit.
The £2million annual bill for the
214 jumbo families comes despite a
Government pledge to cap payouts.
They receive the money to pay
rent, which is often substantial
because of the need for big homes.
Their average monthly housing
benefit payment is £779 – more than
many working families pay for
their mortgage.
Critics of the system say it
encourages irresponsible parents
to bring up their children at the
taxpayers’ expense.
Others say it inflates rents, with
the annual cost of housing benefit
now reaching £24billion a year,
almost £500m a week.
Mum-of-12 Cheryl Prudham gets
annual state handouts worth more
than £40,000.
Cheryl, from Warrington, Cheshire, sparked fury on Channel 5
documentary Benefits: Britain’s
Most Shameless Mum.
The 34-year-old, who is expecting
baby number 13, told how her
family raked in thousands while
splashing out on expensive holidays
and designer clothes.
Before
meeting
ex-partner
Robert, Cheryl was already mum –
by two different men – to George,
17, Jack, 15, Caitlin, 12, Maisie, ten,
Millie, nine, and Madison, eight.
After marrying the delivery
driver in 2010, she had Leon, six,
Lenny, five, Lainey, four, twins
Lexy-Rose and Lacey-May, two, and
Tillie-Grace Ellen, one.
She said at the time: “I’m addicted
to having babies and want to
have another one soon. I don’t
think it is anyone’s business – I can have as many
children as I want.
“I’m claiming benefits
that the Government
have created for me.
Why wouldn’t I take
advantage of them?”
Last year mum-of-12

& ISOBEL DICKINSON
be single. Married Edwards, from
Devon, pocketed £144,113 in tax
credits, £9,606 in housing benefits
and £988 council tax relief.
The number of jumbo-sized families on housing benefit has risen in
recent years, Department of Work
and Pensions figures show. In 2013,
there were 188 and by 2014 the
figure had reached 205.
In 2015 it dipped to 203, before
reaching the current record of 214.
In total there are 14,511 households with six or more children
receiving housing benefit payments
that total £119m per year.
Families in London – where rents
are the most expensive in Britain –
get the most housing benefit.
Separate figures on out-of-work
benefits show there are 80 households with ten children in them
being supported by handouts
because their parents are not
working.
There are 20 families with 11
children in a similar predicament
and ten households with 12 or more
children with no working parents.
John O’Connell, from the Tax
Payers’ Alliance said: “It’s not for
the Government to dictate how
many children a person has but it’s
unfair to expect taxpayers to subsidise a lifestyle for others which
they cannot enjoy themselves.
“Many hard-pressed families
across the country are forced to
make extremely difficult choices
about what they can and can’t
afford.
“Those relying on taxpayer-funded benefits should not be immune
from those considerations.”
A DWP spokesman said: “Our
welfare reforms are incentivising work and
restoring fairness.
“By limiting the
amount people
can claim in out
of work benefits, we are ensuring those
on benefits
now
face
the
same
choices as
those
in
work.”

BRITAIN’S Got Talent judge
David Walliams says The X
Factor is boring and Simon
Cowell is “talentless”.
He ripped into the rival series
hours before the BGT live shows
kick off tomorrow.
Comic David said he often finds
himself watching X Factor on catch
up “and fast forwarding through the
performances. I think to myself ‘Why
am I watching this programme?’”.
And he claimed BGT is a better show
because it offers viewers variety.
He said: “Because people on Britain’s
Got Talent will do anything, hopefully
it never gets boring.
“It is a feelgood show, unlike other
talent shows which keep telling you
how important it is and that you are
going to be the biggest star in the
world.
“With BGT you know exactly what
you are going to win – some money
and the chance to perform at the Royal
Variety Performance.
“You are not told you are going to be
the biggest star the world has ever
known and that you are going to sell
millions of records around the
world.”
Walliams regularly clashes with
Simon on the BGT panel – often
tongue-in-cheek. Now he has hinted he
thinks the music mogul is deluded.
He said: “I don’t think I have any
wisdom to impart to anyone. Simon
does – and this is a man with no
discernible talent whatsoever.
“It is the strangest thing. He thinks
he has got pearls of wisdom for everybody but he can’t sing, he can’t dance
and he can’t tell jokes.”
But David admitted: “His talent is for
spotting talent, and he is good at that.”
As part of a BGT twist, the judges will
select one axed act of their choosing to
go through to the live final as a wildcard.
Camila Cabello, Alfie Boe, the cast
from Bat Out of Hell The Musical, 5
After Midnight and magician Richard
Jones will perform at the semi-finals.
And Little Mix and Diversity will
join forces to perform together at the
grande final.

to have a hard time
knowing I am away

Miley also revealed
she has given up weed
and booze for the time
being to focus on her
new music.
She added: “That is
a part of my personal
journey and me being focused.
“I just want to be clear about what
I am putting out to the world
right now. Feeling foggy and hazy I
cannot be as direct about what I

It certainly makes a change from
riding around on huge inflatable

Liam is the talk of
TWITTER trolls
■
have ridiculed
Liam Payne for his
new “street” accent
– comparing him to
X Factor joke figure
Honey G.
The former One
Direction star
appeared to have
swapped his
Wolverhampton twang
while appearing on
The Graham Norton
Show and replaced
it with a mish-mash
of street and cockney.
And his strange new
accent didn’t go
unnoticed by stunned
viewers who took to
Twitter to blast the
pop hunk.
Comments included:
“Since when did Liam
come from North
Weezy? He’s turned
into the new Honey G”.
“What part of East
London does #LiamPayne come from??
That accent he’s
putting on @grahnort”
“Isn’t #LiamPayne
from Wolverhampton?
Whys he putting on a
different accent?”
“Why has #LiamPayne’s voice
changed so much?”
I exclusively revealed
last month how Liam
will rap on his debut
solo album but fears
fans will write him
off as a Vanilla
Ice-wannabe.
He also made
his first live solo
performance of new
single Strip That
Down on the BBC One
chat show.
But despite the
backlash it isn’t all
bad news for the
former boyband star.
His new hit charted
at No.3 on Friday’s
Official Singles’ Chart.

PETER
Sutcliffe
has been deluged
with
sick
“fan
mail” since moving
back to jail.
The Yorkshire Ripper,
70, has received dozens
of letters and cards of
support and “love”.
Some women have even
sent him saucy snaps of
themselves.
The correspondence to
HMP
Frankland,
Co
Durham, is mainly sent by
women fascinated by the
serial killer who murdered
13 women.
A source said: “He must
have received between 50
and 100 letters since last
August.
“Some offer sympathy,
others tape coins or
money to a card – and the
most shocking tell him
they ‘love’ him.
“A lot ask him to write
back to them so that they
can begin a relationship.
Frankly, it’s weird.”
The most disturbing
letters are censored or
removed by prison staff.
The source added: “In
the past, letters have been
smudged with lipstick.
“One included a pair of
knickers. The new ones
■ EXCLUSIVE
by ANDY GARDNER
tend to say, ‘It’s wrong to
send you back to prison.
You are ill.’”
Despite the rush of
letters, Sutcliffe has told
staff to bin most of the
correspondence.
He claims to be too busy
to write back to his new
admirers.
The monster is held on
the Dangerous and Severe
Personality Disorder unit
at Frankland, where he
was moved from Broadmoor psychiatric hospital,
Berks, in 2016.
Other notorious inmates
held there include serial
killer Levi Bellfield and
Soham
murderer
Ian
Huntley. His new pen pals
include two Jehovah’s
Witnesses, a female truck
driver and an Italian
woman.
Any money sent to
Sutcliffe goes into his
prison bank account.
Sutcliffe received 20 life
terms in 1981 for the 13
murders and the attempted
murder of seven others in
Yorkshire and Greater
Manchester.
He was recently visited
in jail by police probing
17 further assaults.
The list of attacks is
thought
to
include
several with hammers
– the same method
the Yorkshire Ripper
used on his helpless
victims.
STRUGGLING: Mariah and Lionel
Fans tune out

MUSIC legends Mariah Carey and

Lionel Richie are struggling to fill

WARPED:

Fan mail is
given to brute,
stadium tour.
Thousands of tickets are still
available for all 22 US dates despite
seat prices being slashed to as little
as £22.50 in cities including Oakland,
California and Newark, New Jersey.
The duo’s All The Hits gigs have
been further rocked by reports that
Mariah, 47, and Lionel, 67, were
bickering at rehearsals ahead of their
first gig in July.
The singers, who have amassed
10 Grammy Awards and sold
300million albums between them,
can’t agree on anything from playlists
to backing musicians and dancers,
according to a member of Mariah’s
production crew.
The source added: “They are also
blaming each other’s teams for not
generating enough publicity for the
tour.
“There are fears now there could
still be a lot of wide open spaces
at stadia when they hit the road.”
A spokeswoman for Mariah insisted
there is “complete harmony” between
her and Richie over the arrangements
and “plenty of time” left for tickets to
be sold.

DEN STAR’S
TREAT…
A MAJOR security operation was
■
launched at a jail after a tip-off that
a gun was to be smuggled in by drone.
Governors at Liverpool prison
alerted police following the call and
staff reported two sightings of a
four-engined drone.
The male caller told staff a handgun
was on the way to a named prisoner
being held at the Category B prison.
Guards then saw a drone hovering at
11pm on April 15 and again 90
minutes later.
A source said: “The anonymous
tip-off gave detailed information.
The man said a handgun would be
delivered to a named inmate via a
drone.
“Then a drone – or perhaps two
– appeared at the designated
time and a security operation
was launched. So far, a gun has
not been found.”
Merseyside police spent four hours
at the jail, which has 1,300 inmates.
The officers joined staff in checking

the perimeter of the Victorian building.
One inmate was moved to the Care
and Separation Unit.
A second search, which involved
sniffer dogs, was conducted later
but nothing was found.
Glyn Travis, of the Prison Officers
Association, said: “The big fear is that
drones will bring in weapons.
“This sort of incident highlights how
important it is to have enough staff to
deter smuggling.
“Any sort of weapon, particularly a
gun, could cause carnage behind
bars. We need more officers and for
them to be paid a living wage.”

THAN WITH THUNDERBALL*
DRAGONS’ Den investor
Deborah Meaden spends a
fortune on massages for
her beloved horses.
The multi-millionaire admits her
fondest indulgence is to make sure
her four-legged friends are chilled
and relaxed in their fields.
Leisure supremo Deborah, 58, says it
would be the last straw if she didn’t
make certain her stable of animals
were pampered to bits.
She said: “I get tension in my shoulders thanks to all the travelling I do, so
I have weekly £50 massages at my
home.
“I also treat my six horses to £60
massages every two months to make
sure they are in shape.
“Most of my horses are
rescued – they have come out
of racing or have had something wrong with them.
“It is really embarrassing
how much I spend on
them each year –
many thousands of
pounds.”
Deborah spoke as
she started filming
for the 15th series of
Dragons’ Den, which
returns to BBC Two
■ EXCLUSIVE by JOHN MAHONEY
later this summer. She and the panel
will be looking to splash their cash to
make the dreams of budding entrepreneurs come true.
For this series, Moonpig greetings
cards chief Nick Jenkins, 50, and food
and drinks restaurant queen Sarah
Willingham, 43, have quit the Den.
They are being replaced by former
banker and cash machine retail expert
Jenny Campbell, 55, and vitamins
company guru Tej Lalvani, 42.
Deborah, who lives in a ten-bedroom
Somerset farmhouse with husband
Paul, 53, doesn’t use credit cards since
running up a £3,000 debt when she was
18 – equivalent to around £20,000 now.
She will also never forget her worst
financial disaster.
Deborah explained: “Buying
something called a credit
bond. I got a flippant call in
2007 from someone sitting in
an office saying they
had lost me half a
million pounds.
“It taught me a
lesson.
“I realised I care
more about my
money than anyone else does.”

WHITE Gold is The Wolf of Wall Street
for Essex double-glazing spivs – the
Rats of Romford if you like. Or more
accurately the Prats of Pitsea.
Set in 1983, it portrays salesmen as
lying wide-boys who couldn’t give a
flying footbolt about the poor sods
they have over.
Double-glazing isn’t like that now, of
course, because now creeps like them
are running energy companies.
The show charts the rise of Vincent
Swan and his bickering oppos
Fitzpatrick and Lavender.
But nothing quite works. It’s cruder
than a Benidorm stag comic, as sharp
as a Cabbage Patch doll. And even
the 80s soundtrack strays into 1978.
Swan is supposed to be the Wolf
but is more Bell-end than Belfort and
was lucky to only get chinned once.
“Salesmen are like vampires,” he
said. “Never invite one into your
home…he won’t leave until he tastes
blood.” True then, true today.

Even people studying for a Masters

“Woah, take a break, love”.
It can’t help that the titles are
full of things she can’t afford
to eat: Taste of Honey, Pigeon
English, Animal Farm...
Her plight suits the soap’s
propaganda that “half the
country is at food banks”.
But it’s self-inflicted.
Denise walked out of her
job like she walked out on
Kush and out of that food
bank. The woman chooses to go
without. She could do bar work,
she could get a market stall (there’s
never a wait in Walford). She could
start shagging Ian again...
Pride be damned, he’s got a restaurant! Snacks are his speciality!
Besides, he’s not getting any at home
and face it, she’s had a lot worse.
Yet she’d rather scoff out of bins. It’s
just a shame she can’t tuck into that
massive chip on her shoulder.
Mick’s storyline is loopy too. He
bought the Vic outright with readies.
Why couldn’t he take out a mortgage to
fix the roof? Why couldn’t he borrow?
(Mick asked about a no interest loan and
the bank said: “We’re not interested.”)
And why wasn’t Lady Di covered by insurance? Her condition was freshly diagnosed not “previously existing”.
Yet hard-hearted Shirley, the woman
who gave up her kids, forged Mick’s
signature to sell the pub’s freehold in
order to save the pooch...
It makes no sense but then soap
writers are more interested in
pushing iffy agendas than in
crafting credible plots.
When they do come up
with a headline-grabbing
yarn, it’s inevitably recycled. “Who shot JR” begat
“Who shot Phil” begat “Who
pushed Ken” and “Who
Killed Lucy”...
I’ll let you in on a secret –
Bobby didn’t do it. Lucy committed suicide! She topped herself after
reading her story arc for the coming
year. They’ve forgotten soap’s golden
rule: Thou shalt not omit adultery.
Mickney – if it goes all the way – can’t

THE ROCKET TELLS OF ADDICTIONS TURMOIL
FIVE-TIME world snooker
champion Ronnie O’Sullivan
says he is still battling drink
and drug demons.
He has turned his life around
after spells in rehab to fight his
addictions.
But Ronnie, 41, exclusively told the
Daily Star Sunday he faces a daily
struggle to stay clean.
Ronnie, who has had a well documented battle with alcohol, cannabis and depression, said: “I very
rarely drink and no longer really
want to drink, but I still have it in
me. It’s a conscious choice.
“I’ve had to change my
circle of friends. I make
sure I have a lot of positive
things in my life.
“But the Ronnie who
loved drink and drugs is
still in me. If I don’t run,
I don’t train and I don’t

hang around with the right people I still
have it in me to go down that route.
“But that just means I’m more
conscious and aware of staying one step
ahead of it now.”
Ronnie, who lost his 1998 Irish Masters
title after testing positive for cannabis,
was one of the first sporting stars to talk
openly about mental health issues after
suffering with depression for years.
He praised Princes William and Harry
for breaking down taboos by publicly
speaking about their own problems for
the Heads Together campaign.
Ronnie, nicknamed The Rocket, said:
“I think what the princes have
done is fantastic. I spoke
about it years ago when
there was a lot more
stigma, but thankfully
times are changing.
“I have so much admiration for William and
ON CUE:

authorities

Harry. They have some of their mum in
them. Harry may be a prince, but he
comes across as just one of the lads.
“William has to toe the line a bit more
as he’s the future king, but what wonderful kids Prince Charles and Princess
Diana had. It will do huge things for
those with mental health problems.
“I know how much I helped other
people by speaking out about depression
from all the feedback I got. Knowing that
has been one of the most important
things I’ve ever achieved in my life.
“Thankfully I don’t get depressed much
any more, but again it is still in me. I had
a really bad week recently when I
couldn’t shake myself out of it. But
generally I’m much better.”
Perfectionist Ronnie turned his life
around with the help of sports psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters.
He admitted: “I’ve had to learn not to
listen to the voice in my head saying it’s
not good enough. People always say they
wouldn’t change anything, but I would
change lots of things if I could. My dad
going to prison. Ever picking up drink
and drugs. I would change those things.
“There’s no better feeling than being fit
healthy and running outdoors. I got sidetracked for a while, but I’m glad to have
control of my life back.”
The dad-of-two has released his debut
novel, Framed. The crime thriller is
loosely based on his childhood growing
up in the seedy clubs of Soho with his
dad jailed for murder.
And he admitted he is thinking about
retiring from snooker to write full-time.
Ronnie added: “Yes, I would absolutely
retire to be a writer. I’ve already thought
about it. But I will wait until I feel I’m
secure enough to know I can make a
successful career out of it.
“I’m already writing my second book
and there are more to come, but whether
I can make a successful career out of it
only time will tell.”
● Framed by Ronnie O’Sullivan is out
now in both hardback and paperback.

Figures obtained by the Daily Star
Sunday show that more than 150 male
and female troops caught untreatable
gonorrhoea and syphilis – diseases
which often lead to troops being
medically discharged.
And in one regiment based in the
north of England, one in ten soldiers
was diagnosed with an STD after sleeping with the same group of local girls
over a four- month period.
The situation within the barracks in
Cheshire became so grave that posters
were put up warning of the dangers of
unprotected sex.
The figures released in a Freedom of
Information request also show that at
least 140 service personnel have been
diagnosed with HIV – the potentially
lethal virus which attacks the body’s
immune system.
The Ministry of Defence has revealed
that between January 2012 and May
2017, a total of 11,681 troops contracted
an STD, 1,082 of which were female.
But the FOI also makes clear that the
real figure could be higher because
many military personnel would have
had treatment at an NHS clinic.
The huge numbers of troops who
have contracted an STD suggests that
armed forces advertising campaigns
and warnings by medics about unsafe
sex appear to have failed.
The Army, which is composed of
around 87,000 troops had the highest
numbers of cases with 7,120 men and
711 women affected. There were also
■ EXCLUSIVE
by PATRICK WILLIAMS
2,383 members of the Royal Navy and
1,912 RAF personnel who contracted
STDs.
The most prevalent disease was
Chlamydia, one of the world’s fastest
growing STDs. It can lead to infertility
in men and women.
The disease is particularly prevalent
among people under the age of 25 and
was featured in a storyline on the BBC
soap EastEnders.
Chlamydia spreads quickly because
symptoms may not emerge for several
months after infection.
Overall in the armed forces 4,109
male and 581 female troops contracted
Chlamydia during a five-year period.
There were also 1,467 personnel who
contracted genital herpes, 2,267 with
genital warts and 163 troops were
diagnosed with hepatitis B and C.
A senior Army medic said: “STDs
have always been a problem with
troops but in this day and age we had
hoped that the safe sex message was
getting through. These figures are a
real worry.
“We have an increasing number of
troops from all three services testing
positive for HIV and that is a careerending condition.
“We have troops with untreatable
gonorrhoea and other STDs which can
have a severe effect on a soldier’s
health. Troops with serious STDs can’t
deploy on operations or take part in
arduous training.
“But these figures could be the tip of
the iceberg. Many troops will go to
NHS clinics if they believe they have
an STD and that will not appear on
their military medical records.”

WE MUNCH ON 4.4M DIGESTIVES EVERY DAY...

■
best-loved biscuits turns
125 this year.
Sir Alexander Grant came up
with his secret recipe for
McVitie’s Digestives in 1892.
The McVitie’s factory in
Harlesden, London, was home
to the Digestive for years and
the Queen Mother, Prince
Charles and Margaret Thatcher
have all taken tours.
The original simple recipe is
still used today. What has
altered is the bright red
packaging, as our snaps show.
From a design dominated by
the names of original makers
McVitie & Price through to the
bright packaging we know
today, these photos chart the
changes to the teatime treat.
The biscuit’s name originally
came from the inclusion of
baking soda in the ingredients,

any digestive properties.

The paedophile could soon be
serving the public in its farm shop
and working in the jail’s piggery.
She is currently in top-security Bronzefield jail and had hoped to be freed when
she ended her minimum seven-year term
in December.
But a Parole Board panel decided the
mum of two is still a danger to the public.
They recommended she go to an open jail
and she will not be considered for release
again until at least 2019.
George will now be sent to relaxed East
Sutton Park in Kent while she is prepared
for freedom.
It houses fewer than 100 women and is
in a Grade II listed Jacobean mansion set
in 84 acres of grounds.
Inmates grow fruit, vegetables and
flowers and rear livestock. Produce and
meat is sold in the prison’s farm shop.
Lags are also allowed to visit farmers’
markets in the Home Counties.
Bronzefield in Middlesex sends around
80 inmates a year to East Sutton Park in
readiness for their release.
Ministry of Justice information about
the jail revealed: “The farm has rare
breed pigs, sheep, beef cattle and 17
livery horses.
“There is also a profitable farm
shop. In addition to working in the
prison-based shop, the team attends
local farmers’ markets in the
surrounding area where they
also sell the flowers, vegetables
and home-grown pork and
lamb, as well as the highlyacclaimed range of sausages
that are prepared at the
prison.” Inmates can gain
■ EXCLUSIVE by JOE HINTON
qualifications in catering, gardening and
animal husbandry.
A recent report by prison visiting group
the Independent Monitoring Board said:
“The tasks range from working in the
house, to keeping the extensive grounds
in excellent condition, to working in the
market garden producing vegetables and
flowers for the local farmers’ markets
and the farm shop and to caring for a
range of animals including horses, pigs,
cows and hens.
“For many women, the outside environment is not one to which they are accustomed. From discussions with both staff
and women, it is clear that many find the
environment therapeutic, allowing them
time and space to work through problems
and plan for the future.”
George, 47, was among at least five
members of a nationwide paedophile
gang linked to the Little Teds nursery in
Plymouth. She worked at the nursery and
was jailed for abusing toddlers and
photographing assaults for fellow paedos.
Privately-run Little Teds was closed in
June 2009 when George was arrested and
police began an inquiry into the abuse,
which started in late 2008.
She sent vile pictures to IT consultant
Colin Blanchard, 46, with whom she had
an online relationship.
Blanchard, from Rochdale, Lancs,
admitted 17 offences relating to indecent
images of children and two sexual
assaults on children. He was jailed
indefinitely.

BRIDE WITH BONES OF 100-YR-OLD MAKES IT TO ALTAR
A BRIDE with the “bones of
a 100-year-old” walked for
the first time in more than a
decade as she made it down
the aisle on her wedding day.
Jessica Taylor, 26,
endured
years
of
gruelling physiotherapy to make it to the
altar on her own
two feet.
The ME sufferer has
been bedridden for 11
years after she was
struck down by the
debilitating illness following a bout of flu aged
14.
The life-altering disease caused
her bones to weaken so much she was
told she might never walk again.
But after her boyfriend Sam Bearman
■ EXCLUSIVE
by AMY-CLARE MARTIN
popped the question she was determined to defy the odds and build the
strength to tie the knot without
the help of a wheelchair.
Friends and family had
tears in their eyes as
Jessica – accompanied
by her dad Colin –
walked into the village
church
wearing
a
beautiful white gown.
Not only did she make
it to the altar, she even
managed to enjoy a
heart-warming
first
dance with new husband
Sam, 25.
Jessica said: “It was amazing
and such an achievement for me
because I wasn’t particularly well
beforehand.
“My aim was just to walk down the
‘My dream
of walking
down aisle
came true’
aisle – but that was a huge task and a
huge ask for me.
“But I had planned it for two years
and it was a wonderful day. It was the
perfect wedding.
“It was amazing for Sam as well
because he knew how dedicated I was
to be able to do this.
“He knew how important it was to
me. It’s every guy’s dream seeing the
one they love walking down the aisle. It
was just amazing.”
To prepare for the challenge Jessica,
a charity campaigner from Rochester,
Kent, had two years of physio, occupational therapy and specialist treatments.
She had been bedridden for so long
she developed osteoporosis. Doctors
told her she had the bone density of an
old lady before she turned 20.
But Jessica defied even her own
expectations, and managed to stand for
her wedding photographs and a first
dance to Rachel Platten’s A Better
Place. She added: “Being able to stand
up with my bridesmaids and have our
pictures taken was really special.
“The other highlight was being able
to do the first dance. Sam also just
picked me up and swept me off my
feet.
“It was such a good day.”
Eighty friends and family joined
Jessica and Sam for the celebration in
Upnor, Kent. More came later for the
reception.
The newlyweds are planning a cruise
through the Norwegian fjords for their
honeymoon.
Jessica was captain of her netball
team and on track to secure grades for
a top university when she was first hit
by her condition.
She has written a book chronicling
the worst years of her illness when she
could not move or speak. She hopes to
publish A Girl Behind Dark Glasses
following a Kickstarter campaign
which raised £6,450.

ARSENE WENGER has ordered the Arsenal
board to make the right decision on his
future – not the popular one.
Before yesterday’s FA Cup Final victory
over Premier League champions Chelsea,
the majority of Gunners fans wanted his
21-year reign at the club to end.
Whether lifting the trophy for the seventh
time last night will be enough to persuade
the same supporters he should stay,
remains to be seen.
But the decision will be made in the
next 48 hours with a crunch board
meeting on Tuesday to resolve whether
the Frenchman stays or goes.
Wenger, 67, labelled the public
protests against him this season as
“unacceptable and unforgiveable” and is

than bow to the hate-mob.
The Arsenal supremo said: “A strong club
has people who make the right decision.
“That’s why the board and manager are
so important. What’s wrong with modern
society is it’s about making the popular
decision, not the unpopular one.
“Is sacking this manager popular or
unpopular? But that has nothing to do with
competence and it’s why, more than ever
these days, the people responsible for
these decisions need to be strong enough
to make the unpopular one.”

Arsenal’s dramatic winner
BIT HANDY:

Alexis Sanchez
controls the ball
before his opener
WHO says Arsene Wenger isn’t a
winner?
The Arsenal boss picked his reserve goalkeeper
and a makeshift defence with Per Mertesacker
making his first start for 13 months.
But Wenger still lifted the FA Cup for a record
SEVENTH time after a season in which he has
suffered more criticism than ever before.
Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey were the
Gunners goalscorers as Chelsea were denied a
league and cup double.
Diego Costa scored for Chelsea to make it 1-1
but they had to play with 10 men from the 68th
minute after Victor Moses was sent off for two
bookable offences.
It was a record 20th FA Cup Final for Arsenal
but, despite their illustrious history in the
world-famous competition, they were very
much the underdogs.
Chelsea’s status as champions and Arsenal’s
list of absentees through injury and suspension
ensured that.
But the Gunners made a flying start with a
controversial fourth-minute goal.
Sanchez played the ball forward and it was
headed back to him by Chelsea centre-back David
Luiz.
This time the Chile ace tried to find Ramsey
who was in an offside position in the penalty

area. But the Wales midfielder did not touch the
ball and Sanchez burst forward in pursuit of his
own pass to guide the ball past keeper Thibaut
Courtois.
Sanchez also appeared to use an arm to control
the ball at one point.
At first, referee Anthony Taylor ruled
it out for offside but after consulting
his assistant, reversed his decision
and gave the goal – to Arsenal’s
delight and Chelsea’s anger.
It was Sanchez’s 30th goal of
the season in all competitions
and he thought he had made
a second for Arsenal in the
15th minute.
His superb pass set up
Mesut Ozil but, while the
Germany midfielder’s shot
lacked power, it still beat
Courtois.
Gary Cahill, however, came to
Chelsea’s recsue by clearing off the line with a
nifty backheel.
Surprisingly, Arsenal continued to dominate
against the team of the season.
And three minutes later they came even closer
to increasing their advantage.
Ozil’s right-wing corner was glanced on by the
head of Danny Welbeck, the ball hit the post and
Ramsey somehow failed to convert the rebound
from point-blank range.
The midfielder could claim, though, that he was
at a tight angle.
Chelsea did not seriously threaten until the
28th minute when David Ospina – given the
nod in goal ahead of regular No.1 Petr
Cech – did well to deny Costa.
But Wenger (left) was delighted
to see his men quickly get back
to creating chances.
Courtois saved at the feet
of Welbeck then turned a
volley from Granit Xhaka
for a corner.
When Chelsea had a rare
sight of goal in the first
half, Pedro drove over the
bar.
A dressing room mix-up
meant that in the first half
Chelsea did not wear the

black armbands they were due to
don out of respect following last
Monday night’s terror attack in
Manchester.
That was rectified at half-time
– and so was Chelsea’s form.
They were more like the
champions from the start of
the second period and Ospina
had to make saves to deny
N’Golo Kante and Moses.
Pedro then sent a well-struck
effort inches wide.
Bellerin was then denied by
Courtois before Chelsea were
reduced to 10 men midway through
the second half.
Moses, already yellow-carded for a
foul on Welbeck 11 minutes earlier, was
shown a red for blatantly diving in an
attempt to win a penalty. Alex OxladeChamberlain was next to him but there was
no contact.
But Antonio Conte’s depleted troops hit
back 14 minutes from time when
Costa chested the ball down and saw his
right-foot shot take a slight deflection off
Mertesacker on its way into the corner of
the Arsenal net.
The Gunners, though, were back in front
three
minutes
later.
Sanchez found
substitute Olivier
Giroud, who had been on
the pitch only a matter of
seconds in another inspired move
from Wenger, and the France
striker crossed for Ramsey to score
with a diving header close to the
penalty spot.
But there was still time for
Colombia international Ospina to
make a vital save from Costa and for
Ozil to hit the post for Arsenal.
Wenger said: “I’m very proud of
winning it for the seventh time.
“I had the luck to get it seven times
and I had the luck to win seven finals
out of eight so that is something
special.”

THIS is the first time Alexis Sanchez

to achieve the feat since Robin

when the Dutchman
netted 37.

AARON RAMSEY
celebrated lifting the FA
Cup at the double
yesterday – three years
after scoring the late
winner to beat Hull in the
final at Wembley.
This time Rambo’s
diving header disposed
of champions Chelsea in
a remarkable 90 minutes
at the home of English
football.
Alexis Sanchez scored
the opener for Arsenal
before Diego Costa
equalised.
Ramsey, though, was
not going to be denied
being another glorious
match-winner.
And with it, the Arsenal
star opened his heart on
his boss Arsene Wenger
who won a record
seventh FA Cup to
rename it Arsene
Wembley!
Ramsey, 26, said: “Of
course, I want Arsene to
stay. He’s been fantastic
for me, fantastic for the
players.
“Hopefully he will still
be here next season
because we all owe
him a lot. I can’t
describe this. It has
to be a successful
season for us to win.
“And to get the winner
again, I really love this

“I’m happy for the
manager to get another
FA Cup win.
“I’m delighted. I
love to make late
runs in the box and
thankfully Olivier
Giroud put it on a
plate for me to get
the winner.”
Danny Welbeck
was equally pleased
but would not get
involved in the
speculation over
Wenger’s future.
Welbeck said: “It was a
great performance. We
stuck in there when they
equalised.
“We dug deep and
Rambo got us the goal
and we won. We have got
the FA Cup again.
“It’s not for us to make

BOSS: WE HAVE
TO GET BETTER
AAt Wembley
IT IS only 13 months since his name
was confirmed as Chelsea manager but
Antonio Conte seems to have been
around for donkeys.
Adored by his players, worshipped by the King’s
Road faithful – and happy to irritate opponents
with crazy, manic pitch-side antics which make
Jurgen Klopp look sane and restrained in
contrast.
But love him or loathe him, Conte is here to stay
in England. He has become totally immersed in
our game, our beliefs and our obsession with our
national game.
So much so that the Italian, his wife Elisabetta
and daughter Vittoria are looking for a permanent
luxury mansion in England’s green and pleasant
land.
There is a bumper £40million contract ready to
sign when he gets back from his well-earned hols.
And an endless rack of black suits and ties in his
wardrobe for next season as he looks to kill off any
opposition.
Conte has won over the media who are
appreciative of a man who is late for every
conference but arrives with an apology.
Life could not get any rosier for the champion
Chelsea boss, irrespective of yesterday’s result.
Conte breezed into Stamford Bridge and revived
the fortunes of a team which finished 10th and a
massive 31 points behind previous Premier League
champions Leicester – to romp to title glory.
Not bad for starters. And there’s much more to
come with Conte witnessing for himself on the
drive to Wembley what his first FA Cup Final
means to everyone around England and the world.
On the team bus, working his way through the
hordes, Conte was wrapped up in the fervour, the
passion and the culture of men, women and
children embarking on a pilgrimage of hope to the
national stadium.
All right it was not your usual fun-filled arrival.
Armed cops and armoured carriers lining
Wembley Way were a stark reminder of the
security conscious world we live in after the
terrorist atrocity in Manchester.
But once inside the blue and red adorned stadium,
minds troubled by the arena massacre slowly
focused once more on the typically English
spectacle set before us.
Conte admits he is in love with the oldest cup
competition in the world. Others would say it has
been devalued in recent years. Conte would not.
Even before a ball was kicked against Arsenal, he
was in raptures about how the FA Cup has found a
permanent place in his heart. He watched from
afar when he played and bossed in Italy.
And now he is here, Conte cannot get enough of
what he calls a “unique” competition as he led out
his blue-kitted warriors for the presentation to the
royal party. It was a scene he had acted out in his
dreams.
Conte, standing a couple of yards from white
shirted Arsene Wenger, said before battle began:
“I have watched a lot of English games on
television, including cup finals like this.
“I watched Manchester United against Crystal
Palace last year and have seen other finals in the
past. It’s a great occasion, and so to now be involved
in this situation and to experience it in the first
person is great.
“Every stadium is full of people and you can see
it, smell it, breathe it ... amazing atmospheres. It is
great the way people live the competition in this
country. It is unique.”
Conte would have been well-versed from his
non-stop watching of past classics that things do
not always go your way.
He received a four-minute warning that Wembley
can be a heartbreak venue, too, when Alexis
Sanchez put Arsenal ahead with a hotly disputed
opening goal.
To be fair 1-0 did the Gunners a disservice. They
could have gone in at half-time three goals up.
Conte’s misery was compounded when Victor
Moses was sent-off for diving. The curses muttered
under his breath told you what the Chelsea boss
thought of referee Anthony Taylor’s decision.
Diego Costa allowed Conte to breathe again with
a deflected equaliser but Aaron Ramsey stuck the
final dagger into the Italian’s heart with his headed
winner.
So there will be no celebratory Havana cigar, no
glass of the champagne his squad quaffed in
copious amounts to celebrate their title triumph.
No double.
But that’s the beauty of the FA Cup. Everyone
can have their day – and Conte’s is still to come.

CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte admitted last
night that his team must improve next
season.
Conte says he wants MORE from his
Blues after yesterday’s disappointment –
despite the fact his men streaked to the
Premier League title in his first season.
He said: “We didn’t start well. The first 25
minutes weren’t very good.
“We started to play better in the second
half and when we had our best moment the
referee gave a red card.
“It was Moses’ second yellow card and it
was one of the key moments. And it was
very difficult to say if it was the right
decision. I thought I saw contact. I thought
we were unlucky.
“We won the league and it was right to
celebrate. My players put a lot into winning
it. But now the most important thing is to
remember we had an incredible season.
“Next season we have to improve.”
Chelsea forward Willian said: “We did not

Gianluigi Buffon
Buffon looking to
break Champions
League duck with
a vintage display
By PAUL HETHERINGTON
GIANLUIGI BUFFON will not have any problems
getting the drinks in if he finally wins the
Champions League on Saturday night.
The Juventus and Italy legend now has his own
wine business.
Buffon is on the label and whether it is red, white
or rose, the goalkeeper’s company can provide fine
wines – Italian, of course.
And when it comes to the day job, Buffon is a fine
shotstopper.
Now 39, Buffon still holds the record as the
most-expensive goalkeeper in the world at
£32.6million.
That record has stood for 16 years, since he
moved from Parma to his beloved Juventus.
Buffon has won everything in his career – even
the World Cup – EXCEPT the Champions League.
His last near miss was two years ago, when Juve
were defeated in the final in Berlin by Barcelona.
And now another famous Spanish club stands in
his way – and this time it is the greatest European
Cup side of them all.
Real Madrid will be striving to create more history
in Cardiff.
If they win, they will become the first club to
successfully defend the trophy since the European
Cup format changed and it became the Champions
League 24 years ago.
To prevent Real achieving
their goal, Buffon will have to
deny Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth
Bale – if picked to play in
his home city after injury
– and the rest of the
stars from the Galactico
club.
What is certain,
though, is that there will
not be a cooler player
on the pitch than
Buffon.
The Juventus No.1
said: “The thing I find the
most satisfying about
being a goalkeeper is the
feeling of calmness you can
transmit to your team.
“When they know they
have you behind them,
that’s a sort of power. It

Nahki Wells Is keen
to follow Jamie Vardy’s path
into the Premier League
NAHKI WELLS has a dream
– to become a Premier
League star after following
in the same golden footsteps
as Jamie Vardy.
The Leicester hitman came from
the same humble beginnings,
working his way up from grassroots
football with a few quid in his pay
packet.
But Vardy (right) was rewarded
with fame and riches and hailed as a
champion with 16 appearances and
six goals for his country.
Now Wells, 26, is 90 minutes away
from Premier League stardom of
his own as Huddersfield take on
Reading at Wembley tomorrow in
the £200million shoot-out to join the
elite.
The Bermudan belter began his
career with the strangely-named
Dandy Town Hornets and Bermuda
Hogges before working his socks
off in his big breaks at first Carlisle
(pictured far right) and then

Bradford City. Wells has been
triumphant at Wembley before
with the Bantams in a
League Two Play-Off
Final four years ago.
He would now love it
if history repeated
itself and he could
take another giant
step on the Vardy
stairway to football
heaven.
A self-confessed
Manchester United
fan, Wells said:
“Does the Jamie
Vardy story inspire
me? It does.
“Which is why I really
believe that players like myself do
deserve opportunities like that.
“Because no one would have
expected him to go from being a
non-league footballer to scoring
20-odd Premier League goals and
playing for England in such a short
space of time.
“That is the ultimate fairytale and
I’m looking to go one step
closer to it.
“To get my foot in
the Premier League
door and then
to try and do
what he’s done
and go to the
P r e m i e r
League and
hit the ground
running.
“You know,
he is a late
bloomer as well.
He’s doing it in
his late 20s and
early 30s so there’s
still time for me. There are still
opportunities there.
“This game on Monday means
everything and it could be the
difference in me being able to do it
and not being able to do it.
“This was always the dream. It
was one I always thought was
possible. But at times you do doubt
that dream will come to a reality.
“Minor setbacks on your route
happen. But to come from playing
local football at the age of 20 and
then being offered a professional
contract at 21, to be playing a
domestic cup final at 23 and then to
possibly be a Premier League player
at 26, it’s all remarkable.
“It’s all happened in a short space
of time but it’s what I have been
dreaming about since I was young.
“It’s in my own hands and it’s one
I can’t pass up.
“It’s been a benefit coming up the
hard way. Some of these players
don’t know what it’s like to play in a

JAAP STAM has picked up
numerous traits from his old
Manchester United boss Sir Alex
Ferguson – including the Scot’s
infamous hairdryer treatment.
But the Reading boss, whose
side face Huddersfield tomorrow
in the Championship Play-Off
Final at Wembley, insists he rips
into his players far less often
than Fergie did.
Stam was a key part of the
United 1999 Treble-winning team
but in August 2001 was suddenly
sold to Lazio after Ferguson took
exception to some comments in
the defender’s autobiography.
However, despite that unhappy
ending, the Dutchman admits
many of the methods and
techniques he now employs as
a coach stem directly from the
legendary Old Trafford supremo.
Asked if that meant delivering
hairdryer blasts inside the
Royals dressing room, too,
ex-PSV and Ajax centre-half
Stam, 44, said: “Yes, but not as
much as he did! The time to do it
is when you need
to get the players
performance for Terriers
were clouds. But I was back on
the pitch doing what I loved
within 10 days and it wasn’t
going to stop me.

Manchester City and they
played United in the FA Cup.
It’s something special.”

Jaap Stam (left)
with Fergie in
his United days
sharp because you think they’re
not bringing what they should be
to the team. To wake them up, to
be very much in their face and to
be aggressive with a player does
work sometimes because it
gives them the feeling, ‘Okay,
I am back again’.
“Other things Fergie taught me
were about organisation and the
way to build teams. He’d look for
the right player to fit a certain
position rather than because they
were the best player available.
“But I have got things from
other great coaches too. Guus
Hiddink was very good at
man-management and the way he
talked to his players individually.
“Dick Advocaat was great at
the tactical side and making sure
everyone understood it was
about the team.
“So you learn from all your
managers – even things not to
do from those not so good.”
Many of Stam’s United
contemporaries have avoided
management like the plague
while others – including Roy
Keane, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
and Gary Neville – have
proved a mixed bag in the
dugout.
Stam, though, has
worked wonders
in 10 months at
Reading – his first
job as head coach in
his own right.
The ex-FC Zwolle
and Ajax No.2
added: “Until you
start coaching you
don’t know how
much you’ll enjoy it.
“I only started to
help out my first club.
I did it for two days a
week. That’s when I
got the bug. I’m
ambitious to work at
the very highest level
but happy to do it in
stages.

many who do this have

NO REGRETS: Paul Tisdale
It’s going to
be Paul or
nothing at
Wembley
By MIKE DEVONISH
EXETER CITY boss Paul
Tisdale has sounded a stern
warning to his players ahead
of today’s League Two
Play-Off Final: “Have no
regrets”.
The Grecians have been
riding high after Jack
Stacey’s 25-yard winner in
the 95th minute of their
semi-final second leg against
Carlisle United.
But Tisdale has urged his
men to forget that moment of
elation to ensure they finish
the job against Blackpool at
Wembley.
“Take nothing for granted,”
he said.
“You come through the
play-off semi-final as high as
a kite just because of the
nature of it – to win a
semi-final two-legged game
– you feel you have achieved
something.
“You feel absolutely
exhilarated but you have still
got one game to go.”
Tisdale, 44, has been in
charge of the club for almost
11 years – behind only
Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger in
the current longest-serving
manager stakes.
And he has twice taken
Exeter to the national
stadium, experiencing both
highs and lows.
He saw his side lose the
Conference Play-off Final
when Morecambe beat them
2-1 in 2007 before seeing off
Cambridge United 1-0 at the
same stage a year later.
Tisdale insists that he will
be aiming to ensure his
side’s semi-final heroics were
worth it today.
He said: “My experience of
the previous two times is that
when you look back on the
semi-finals: the game we had
against Oxford in my first
year was a wonderful game
but then you lose in the final
and then that semi-final
doesn’t turn out to be so
important.
“The next year we won the
play-off final and then the
Torquay semi-final previous
to that turned out to be very,
very important.
“Both games were really
exciting and were terrific
games.
“But our target has to be to
make the Carlisle United
semi-final important by
finishing the job.”
Tisdale, who will be without
injured duo Matt Jay and
Robbie Simpson for today’s
game, is desperate to see his
side perform on the day.
“It is an awful place to lose
and a great place to win,” he
said. “We have to make sure
we get the most out of the day.
“I just urge the players to
make the most of it and play
to the best of their ability.
“If we do that, then we can
have no regrets no matter
what happens.”

GAME OF THE SEASON
Chelsea’s charge to the title started with a first-half
hammering at Arsenal on September 24. They were
trailing 3-0 when manager Antonio Conte decided
he had seen enough and switched to a back
three. The rest is history.
MOMENT OF THE SEASON
Forget the ethics of it – Chelsea players forming a
guard of honour to cheer legend John Terry off the
field in his final league game for the club. The purists
booed it. Fans loved it. Football is showbiz.
GOAL OF THE SEASON
You would not call him agile or athletic but the way
Andy Carroll lifted his often-injured body off the floor
to score a sensational scissor-kick from 12 yards out
against Crystal Palace in January defied logic and
physics. A wonderful moment.
BEST SIGNING OF THE SEASON
Got to be Manchester United signing old warrior
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored for fun
until his injury. You wonder how many
he might have finished with.
Not bad for a veteran of 35. His
DNA should be bottled.
WORST SIGNING OF
THE SEASON
Moussa Sissoko (left). Bought
by Spurs for £30million from
Newcastle, played just 13 games
and did not score once. He was also
banned for three games after elbowing
Bournemouth’s Harry Arter. No wonder boss
Mauricio Pochettino admitted the player “failed to
live up to expectations”.
QUOTE OF THE SEASON
“I was close to clocking a few,” – Bradford manager
Stuart McCall after being goaded by Millwall fans
who had invaded Wembley’s pitch following their 1-0
League One Play-Off final. Should have done.
PLAYER TO WATCH 2017-18
Fulham’s teenage left-back Ryan Sessegnon, 17.
Much sought-after by big clubs, the England U17s
youngster became the first player born after the
millennium to score in the English pro leagues.

DREAM: Boss
Gary Bowyer
hopes his team
can end the
season on a high
The toffee trial came during a hard-fought 3-1 victory
at Newport County in March with the Seasiders’ boss
claiming they were not his favoured treat anyway.
But now Bowyer, 45, is hoping for the chance for
revenge with a promotion to League One, which will
hopefully see him pitched against the club that sacked
him – Blackburn Rovers.
But that is all in the future.
The present brings a battle with Exeter at Wembley
today for a club who were in turmoil before Bowyer’s
arrival, having suffered back-to-back relegations.
And former Blackpool hero Keith Southern, who was
involved in two play-off-winning sides during his
10-year spell at the club, could not be happier if Bowyer
bites back.
Ex-midfielder Southern (below) said: “It’s never easy
coming into a club when it was a losing football club and
had been for two or three seasons.
“Gary came in and he had to turn the tide – and he has
managed that.
“He has recruited really well and brought in
league-specific players.
“A lot of them have been promoted from this league
and know how to win in this division which is vital.
“I hope as a former player and fan that he gets the job
done and gets a promotion on his CV because I think he
deserves it.”
Bowyer said: “My initial aim was to bring stability
to the club. I wanted to lay some foundations to build on.
We have progressed quickly, a lot quicker than I ever
expected.
“The progress the players have made is fantastic.
“It’s been very good and I’ve enjoyed it. When anybody
mentions Blackpool you smile
because everyone knows
what it’s like to visit
Blackpool – and I’m
fortunate enough to do
it every day, driving
in and seeing the
Tower.
“I am proud of
what
we
have
achieved but we now
have one more game
to eclipse what we
have done so far.”

STEVE MILLAR
GAME OF THE SEASON
Chelsea’s 3-1 win at Manchester City in December.
The game had everything – great goals, two red
cards and the first real indication that Antonio
Conte would go on to a title triumph.
MOMENT OF THE SEASON
Claudio Ranieri (below) being sacked by Leicester
in February, just 298 days after winning the
Premier League title. A decision which broke the
Italian’s heart.
GOAL OF THE SEASON
Emre Can’s wonder strike earlier this month. The
Liverpool star’s acrobatic overhead kick
stunned Watford and keeper Heurelho
Gomes as he flapped at thin air.
SIGNING OF THE SEASON
Man United grabbing Zlatan
Ibrahimovic on a free transfer
– and getting their money’s
worth courtesy of 28 priceless
goals before his injury KO.
WORST SIGNING OF
SEASON
Claudio Bravo’s arrival from
Barcelona in August to replace
Manchester City keeper Joe Hart as No.1.
A complete waste of £17million in a cock-up season.
QUOTE OF THE SEASON
“I am not always laughing like crazy. I am a normal
person. I am not a clown – even though a few people
think I am.” Jurgen Klopp being honest and having a
laugh.
PLAYER TO WATCH 2017-18
Gabriel Jesus, who arrived at Man City in January,
made an immediate goal impact and gave golden
glimpses of a great future for next season.

GAME OF THE SEASON
Swansea 5 Crystal Palace 4. Five

MOMENT OF THE SEASON
Chelsea’s win at Manchester City in
December. That convinced me and
many others the title was heading

GOAL OF THE SEASON
Andy Carroll’s airborne volley for
West Ham against Crystal Palace.
Scorpion kicks are spectacular but
have an element of luck. Carroll’s
cracker was breathtaking technique.
BEST SIGNING OF THE SEASON
A manager – Jose Mourinho. Three
trophies including the Community
Shield and a return to the Champions
League for Manchester United. Appoint
a winner and you get success.
WORST SIGNING OF SEASON
Moussa Sissoko. Did Tottenham really
pay Newcastle £30million for him?
Spurs don’t get much wrong but
this one they did.
QUOTE OF THE SEASON
Jose Mourinho: “I am very far away
from having the team I want at
Manchester United.” Honest
assessment and makes you wonder
what he’ll achieve when he has.
PLAYER TO WATCH IN 2017-18
Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City).
Aged only 20, quick and scores goals.
A Samba starlet to make Pep
Guardiola’s side even better to watch.

From little acorns, mighty oaks can grow. Not
everyone has a lot of spare cash to start playing poker
with. When you’re kicking off your poker experience
with a tiny bankroll of £100, £50, £20, or only £10:
1. You must play tight
2. Be very selective about what games you play
3. Play cash games or Sit&Gos only
4. Play at the very lowest stakes, and
5. Slowly build your bankroll Here’s why:

GAME OF THE SEASON
Arsenal 3-4 Liverpool. A classic opening weekend
showdown set the ball rolling for some crazy high-scoring
Premier League clashes – and ultimately proved
crucial in Liverpool finishing fourth ahead of Arsenal.
A goal up after 30 minutes, the Gunners were 4-1 down
on the hour mark before a late rally.
MOMENT OF THE SEASON
Stoke’s Austrian ace Marko Arnautovic hammers a penalty
high into the stands at Swansea, who then break to make it
2-0. What a vital few seconds in their great escape.
GOAL OF THE SEASON
Andy Carroll’s overhead rocket for West Ham against
Crystal Palace at the London Stadium was breathtaking.
Nothing lucky about it as he leapt acrobatically to fire
in an unstoppable peach.
BEST SIGNING OF THE SEASON
N’Golo Kante (Chelsea): Some bemoan the £32m
Frenchman being FWA and PFA Player of the
Year because he is a holding midfielder.
Rubbish. The ex-Leicester ace is
wonderfully gifted all over the park.
WORST SIGNING OF SEASON
Jordon Ibe (Bournemouth): The £15m
club-record buy from Liverpool (right)
was conspicuous by his absence
almost all season. Not value for money.
QUOTE OF THE SEASON
“The psychological environment for the
players was absolutely horrendous. Certainly,
my personal situation has contributed.” Arsene Wenger
ends months of denial about his contract stalemate.
PLAYER TO WATCH 2017-18
Rob Holding (Arsenal): The ex-Bolton central defender,
21, shone in the final weeks of the campaign. Tough yet
composed, he appears to have a bright future.

O BILLBOARDS REVEALS HOW SHE FOLLOWED HER

■
felicity.cross@dailystar.co.uk
WITH her long blonde hair and
tanned curves, Laura Crane
looks the ultimate Californian
surf babe.
PIN-UP:
Laura’s
in demand
as a model
But the 22-year-old actually hails
from Bristol.
The professional surfer is a two-time
British champion, has broken into
the European top five and competes all over the world.
And she has graced billboards in ads for Billabong
and Nikon cameras.
She has
also lived in Bali,
Australia and now
Portugal in her search for
the perfect wave.
But Laura says her heart will always
belong to Britain.
She said: “North Devon is where my life
changed in ways I could have only dreamed
of and that’s given me the life I love so
much. I grew up in Bristol, but we often
visited our holiday home in Croyde.
“After a while we were travelling there
nearly every weekend, so it made sense to
move. My dad started surfing and he taught
me when I was 11. I took to it quickly and a
year later I was competing.”
Laura would swim or surf before and
after school and took part in the British
Championships when she was just 14. But
it hasn’t all been plain sailing.
Laura said: “I’ve had my fair share of

DREAM
cuts and bruises. When I was in Bali I fell
into a really shallow reef and cut the whole
of my body. It was really horrible.
“And I saw a shark in Hawaii, which was
terrifying. Everyone says, ‘Oh you’re a
surfer, you must be used to seeing sharks.’
But you never, ever are. I was hyperventilating, paddling, kicking, doing everything
I could to get myself to the sand!”
Having spent almost half her life competing, Laura no longer chases medals.
And alongside her modelling work, she
has now become a spokesperson for the
surfing industry.
“She said: “I stopped competing two
years ago when I had reached fifth in
Europe. It got to a point where I was surfing because I felt like I had to and I was
losing the love.
“It’s my main passion and it was becoming a job, so it felt like the right thing to do
to stop competing.
“I really enjoy making the videos and
using the opportunity I have to try and be
an inspiration for girls. I want to be a
person that girls can look up to.
“I’m from the UK and had this dream of
being a pro surfer but I got told a million
times it was never going to happen.
“I feel like way too many young people’s
dreams are shot down and through my
videos and content I want to encourage
people to follow their dreams.
While home for Laura will always be
Croyde, she’s currently living in Ericeira,
Portugal, so she can surf every day.
She added: “For me surfing is about the
waves – and Portugal has such a big range.
When there are perfect waves, no surfer
can say no!”

at @lauraloucrane.
Laura’s tips to
be a surfing star
● TAKE lessons. You can spend hours trying to
figure out how to stand up, but an instructor can
show you how in 20 seconds. Make sure you get
someone qualified – almost every UK surf school has
them.
● TIME in the water is crucial to progress. Surfing is
a sport where once you get the basics it’s just about
getting out there and practising.
● MOST beaches in the UK have hire shops
where you can get a board and a wetsuit quite
cheaply. As you start out in the sport, the
biggest challenge will be where you place
your feet, so your board needs to be a
large one to help. Then you can
move to a smaller board.

Baywatch reboot’s crass and lazy
UNDERWORLD: BLOOD
WARS (15)
DON’T worry if you missed the four
previous films in Kate Beckinsale’s
vampire series. I saw them, but the
details are fuzzier than a werewolf’s
backside. Thankfully, my ailing
memory didn’t stop me enjoying this
nonsense. Part Five is a blur of
scraps and shootouts involving folk
trussed up in plastic and grizzled
chaps who, when the budget permits
it, turn into dogs. Kate can still kick
ass in that catsuit.
ANDY’S RATING: ★★★
XXX: THE RETURN OF

In cinemas on Friday
AFTER playing sinister religious
zealot The High Sparrow in Game of
Thrones, Jonathan Pryce is in a
much more forgiving mood in this
gentle Brit flick.
He plays grieving Jewish widower
Nat who is forced to take young
tearaway Muslim refugee Ayyash (Jerome
Holder) as his assistant in his failing
London bakery.
As soon as we learn that Ayyash’s dad
is missing in Darfur and presumed dead,
and Nat’s son has refused to keep up the
family business, we can pretty much tell
how this will play out.
Religious differences are put aside as
Ayyash finds a father figure and Nat
rediscovers his love of life.
On the way, we also get some tired
comedy involving cannabis-spiced dough,
Pauline Collins as a merry widow and
panto turns from Phil Daniels and Ian Hart
who play a cackling property developer
and a thuggish drug dealer.
Pryce is magnificent, bringing heart and
humour to a very underwritten part. But
the hackneyed plot delivers few surprises.
It’s sweet but feels a little half-baked.

But to be honest, I just don’t have it in me.
I laughed seven or eight times during his
Baywatch spoof. By my maths, this means
it has seven or eight times more decent
jokes than the recent CHiPs movie.
This equates to about a quid a
chuckle at the average price of a
cinema ticket. Not too bad.
The first one, technically more
of a giggle, arrived during the
opening credits.
Dwayne Johnson’s giant
lifeguard leaps from the surf
in super slow-motion clutching a rescued paraglider.
As a pod of dolphins jump
out of sea behind him in
celebration, the title fizzes
across a perfectly blue sky.
The writers clearly took their
inspiration from 2012’s 21 Jump
Street, by far the funniest remake
of a defunct TV series.
Baywatch is nowhere near as clever,
but there is that same desire to own its
ridiculousness.
The plot (prepare to roll your eyes) sees a
team of ridiculously photogenic lifeguards
including Kelly Rohrbach, foiling a drug
baron’s take over of their beach.
“Am I the only one that thinks this is clearly a
job for the police?” asks Zac Efron’s ripped
rookie when Johnson’s Mitch hatches a plan.
“What you are describing sounds like an
entertaining but far-fetched TV show.”
Local cop Sgt Ellerbee (Yahya Abdul-Mateen
II), is just as frustrated with Mitch’s crimefighting.
“You are lifeguards,” he shrieks. “Your job is
to make sure swim-happy white folk don’t
drown!”
It’s not just the series’ plot lines that are
skewered. There’s also a recurring joke about
those famous shots of girls jiggling around in
bikinis.
“Why does she look like she’s running in
slow-motion,” someone asks as Kelly
Rohrbach’s lifeguard runs out of the surf.
“She looks wet, but not too wet”.
This is the mystery that was once
pored over by teenage boys across
the globe.
Far less successful are the halfhearted stabs at gross-out
comedy.
There’s a painfully unfunny
sequence where a horny
teenager gets his appendage
stuck in deck chair, and a
very weird bit where Efron
has to rummage under a
dead man’s genitals (no, I’m
not making this up).
Both scenes confirm something I have long suspected
– Hollywood has run out of knob
jokes.

Q: Why bring back xXx?
A: When we first did this movie,

Killer’ because it had beaten that
year’s Bond. And nobody expected
that. I feel like we’ve seen a lot of

and there has been a desire to
return to this unique and different
type of secret agent.
Q: When the first film came out in
2002 we hadn’t seen many tattooed
spies. Was he the first?
A: Until that point we had never
seen a protagonist in tattoos. It has
definitely affected subsequent
generations because now it’s
almost impossible to find someone
without a tattoo.
Q Have Xander’s tattoos changed?
A: Yes, they have. Creating the

IF you stayed up for the Oscars in February you
might have already Googled this one.
Now Brits finally have a chance to see the
unheralded Swiss flick that took on Disney for
Best Animated Feature.
It turns out the brisk, 70-minute, My Life As A
Courgette (or My Life As A Zucchini to Yanks) is
just as odd as its title.
It’s a touching drama about a lonely nine-year-old
boy with blue hair, saucer eyes and a Frank
Sidebottom head who is sent to a children’s home
after accidentally killing his alcoholic mum.
The stop-motion animation is beautfully done, the
dialogue is sharp and the English language dub
(which features Will Forte, Ellen Page and Nick
Offerman) is pitch perfect.
All the main characters, even the home’s ginger
bully, are sympathetically drawn.
Orphanages are usually miserable places in
movies but this one is a genuine source of comfort
for the kids. At times, the film feels like a heartfelt
tribute to those who work in social care.
I’ve no idea what Disney kids will make of it, but
this adult found it very difficult to shrug off.

On the first one I had my first
Dungeons and Dragons character
over my stomach. In this one,
aspects of his ink are relevant
both on screen and off screen.
Q: What causes Xander to come
back?
A: This story is essentially about
a man being called back into
action. The NSA is up against a
group they can’t handle, that just
wiped ’em and their old rigid and
ways of dealing with things.
They have to go back and get
this wildcard named Xander to go
up against them.
Q: It’s a very international cast.
Why does it work?
A: I wanted to go not just to all
the multicultural actors that lived
in California but into entirely
separate film markets and
entirely different regions and
celebrate their heroes and their
actors.
Q: How do the action scenes
compare to the previous films?
A: You can’t talk about “Triple X”
without talking about the action.
We even came up with a new
fighting style called MXMA –
motocross martial arts.
We were able to implement that in
the movie and it’s just so fun. I
guess I don’t normally say this
because so many of the
characters that I play are dark or
brooding.

THIS WEEK: Day out at the beach becomes a fight for life,
REBECCA’S R
FEARS FOR
HER BABY
EBECCA White fears
she is losing her baby
when she starts to
suffer from crippling
sstomach
tomach pains.
Her horrified sister Chrissie
rushes her to hospital where
they wait anxiously to find out
whether everything is going to
be OK.
As viewers know, Rebecca got
pregnant following a one-night
stand with Robert Sugden.
During last week’s episodes, he
finally told his husband Aaron
Dingle what had gone on.
This week viewers will see Aaron
warming to the idea of Robert
becoming a dad and he gives him his
support.
The popular couple, dubbed Robron
by viewers, look like they may become
a happy family, despite Robert insisting he wants nothing to do with the
child.
But Rebecca ends up doubled over in
pain, sparking fears she could lose the
baby.
An Emmerdale insider said: “Robert
doesn’t care about Rebecca or the baby.
All he wants is Aaron.
“But Aaron is coming round to the
idea of Robert becoming a dad and it
looks like they will get through his
cheating.
“The news came as a huge shock but
it’s a more mature Aaron we see as he
looks to his future.
“He loves taking care of his little
sister Liv and reckons becoming a dad
could be the making of Robert.
“So it really would be cruel if Rebecca
lost their baby.
“Everything is now out in the open
so there is no reason for him not to be
involved.”
Watch the scenes and find out what
happens to Rebecca’s baby during
tomorrow night’s episode on ITV.
Kyle is on to a loo-ser
KYLE Kelly begs his former
■
lover Ryan Knight not to give up
on their relationship after cornering
him in the toilets at The Dog.
As the former lovers talk in secret
they are completely unaware of
Scott Drinkwell lurking in one of the
cubicles.
As viewers discovered last week,
policeman Ryan is bisexual and was
with Kyle on the night his new wife
Amy Barnes was murdered.
The dramatic twist looks to have
led fans to rule out Ryan as a
suspect in her murder but he is
desperate to keep his romp with
Kyle a secret.
When Kyle follows him into the
toilets at the pub Ryan tries to give
him the brush off. But Kyle isn’t

having any of it and pleads with him
to give their relationship another go.
Ryan, who has secretly already
moved on with Mercedes
McQueen following Amy’s death,
listens to what Kyle has to say. But
as they talk they have no idea Scott
is in the toilets with them – and he is
desperate to find out who Mercedes’s mystery new man is.
A Hollyoaks insider said: “Adam
Rickitt arrived in Hollyoaks as Kyle,
the ex of Nancy Osborne.
“The fans didn’t have a clue that
he would be getting involved with
Ryan. But while Kyle wants them to
make a go of things, Ryan is
desperate to keep their romps
secret.
“He feels guilty as he knows he
should’ve been with Amy when
she died. The last thing he wants is
it to get out, but as Ryan leaves
viewers see Scott in the loos.”
Channel 4 viewers can watch
all the drama and find out what
Scott has heard a week on Friday.

Nick gets that
sinking feeling
SEETHING
Feelings running high as warring pair
F
URIOUS Shirley Carter
rages at Whitney Dean and
accuses her of meddling in
family business.
But once she has said her piece,
Whitney shares some harsh home
truths – sparking a huge argument
between the warring pair.
Shirley set up the deal to sell the
freehold of the Queen Vic while her
son Mick was away.
Whitney felt uneasy about what was
going on behind his back and has
been trying to get back into his good
books. And Shirley has been trying to
limit the fall-out ever since Mick
discovered the truth.
During tomorrow night’s episode,
Shirley has her fill of Whitney sticking her nose into Carter family
business and decides enough is
enough. She accuses her of worming
her way into the family and doesn’t
understand why Whitney is still hanging around now that her estranged
husband Lee has gone.
The comments leave Whitney
fuming and she retaliates by telling
Shirley exactly what she thinks of
her.
An EastEnders insider said: “Shirley
is not one to be crossed but Whitney
more than stands her ground.
“She ends up giving her a piece of
her mind.
“The tension between the pair has
been simmering for weeks, so when it
all comes out it’s not pretty.
“The Carters have had a rough few
months of it and it’s not looking like
they are going to pull together any
time soon. Mick has always made
Whitney feel part of the family even
after Lee left.
“So it’s going to be interesting to see
what she does following her argument
with Shirley.”
BBC One viewers can watch the
showdown between Shirley and
Whitney tomorrow night.

while lovers Kyle and Ryan are spied on during heart-to-heart
N
ICK Tilsley is trapped in
quicksand – just as the tide
starts to come in.
Realising the danger, he tries to
call for help but drops his phone into the
water.
Bosses won’t say what happens to Nick,
played by Ben Price, but the actor quit
his role earlier this year so it’s not looking good for him.
This week, viewers will see Nick’s
fiancée Leanne desperately try to sort out
the men in her life. She orders Steve
McDonald and Peter Barlow, the
fathers of her children, to join them at
The Bistro.
Nick arrives with Leanne’s adopted son
Simon and suggests they all put their differences aside and enjoy a family day out
at the beach.
Everyone reluctantly agrees but things
soon get out of control as the three men
have a kick-about on the sand.
Nick tells Peter he saw him on the night
Ken Barlow was attacked and could have
given him an alibi weeks ago but chose
not to.
The revelation makes Leanne realise
their relationship over.
During a heated row she chillingly tells
Nick that the best thing he could do would
be to walk out into the sea because they
would all be a lot better off without
him.
A Coronation Street insider said:
“Leanne realises that Peter and
Steve aren’t the problem, it’s
Nick.
“His jealousy has reached
crazy levels these past few
weeks and she knows deep
down he is never going to
get over his issues.
“Nick trudges off down
the beach as the rest of the
group decide to head home.
It’s then that Nick becomes
stuck.
“The scenes are really
terrifying.
“He can’t move and the
water is rising rapidly.”
Watch the drama as Nick
fights for his life on ITV on
Wednesday.
PIPER Willis will lead a student strike against
■
the changes brought in by scheming acting
principal Finn Kelly.
During this week’s episodes, Finn takes over
Susan Kennedy’s job when she collapses after
he tampers with her MS medication.
As the warped teacher starts to put
his stamp on Erinsborough
High, Piper makes a stand.
But will it backfire on her?
A show insider said:
“Finn is furious and
Piper doesn’t know what
he’s capable of. He’s not
about to let her cause him
any trouble.”
Catch all the action on
Channel 5 next month.

world is set to have dire
consequences for his sister.
Viewers will see dealer Zannis
target Tori to get back at Brody.
He sneaks into her home and
poisons a jug of water which
Tori drinks before collapsing.
An insider said: “Brody will
never forgive himself if his
sister dies because of his
actions.”

taking my golf clubs and my girlten feet tall.
friend on the same holiday but the 20
Within minutes, though, I had
visited two bunkers, used my
putter three times and the smile
had been wiped from my face.
This was on the first hole at Quinta
do Peru, one of six golf courses in
and around Lisbon owned and run by
the Orizzonte Group.
The fairways are lined with tall
trees, water hazards guard many of
the greens and there is an abundance
of villas dotted around the course –
the type that make visiting golfers
think, “I wouldn’t mind living here”.
Thankfully, my golf improved
following the first-hole disaster and I
walked off the 18th green with my
scorecard looking pretty good.
In the Portuguese capital it is
possible to have a golfing holiday
while staying in a city-centre hotel,
two things people don’t normally put
courses within driving distance of
the city centre and loads of things
for non-golfers to do may just
change my mind.
Our base for the trip
was the landmark fivestar Altis Grand. The
stylish rooms are
furnished
with
ebony and stainless
steel
pieces,
the
marble
bathrooms
have spacious walk-in
showers, plus there’s a
swimming pool, gym,
hammam steam room
and spa. Gin and tonics on
the hotel’s stunning roof-top
bar as the sun set over row after row
of terracotta rooftops made for a
memorable first night.
Next morning we set out in a cool
and compact streetcar, heading west
to the Belém area.
It is here you will find the palace
which used to be home to the
Portuguese royal family, as well as
the
magnificent
16th-Century
Jerónimos Monastery, now a world
heritage site.
Anyone
wanting
to
sample the best views of
Lisbon should meander
up the narrow, winding streets away from
the centre to St
Jorge’s Castle.
From
its
walls
visitors can see across
the Tagus river to the
Vasco da Gama bridge
and the surrounding
neighbourhoods.
Meanwhile, if you fancy
just soaking up the atmosphere
of the city, the pretty Rossio and
Commerce squares are packed with
shops, bars and restaurants and have
a buzz about them at any time of day.

CLASS:
The beautiful
Quinta do Peru
golf course
stunning capital has it all
Back to the golf and Quinta Da
Marinha, in the Cascais area on the
west coast, is the type of course that
players of all abilities can enjoy.
Good golfers will relish testing
themselves on difficult holes such as
the par-four second and tough par-five
11th, while the view as you approach
the third green, along the Atlantic
coast, is about as good as it gets.
The 18th, a par-five which weaves its
way through two huge lakes, is a
classic finishing hole, and I was glad
to make a six having somehow dodged
all the water.
We hired clubs from MyCaddy
Master, which is great if you don’t
want the stress and expense of travelling with your own equipment. We
used top-of-the-range Callaway gear
for 40 euros for three days.
Three other courses which should
be on the agenda for any Lisbon golf
trip itinerary are Oitavos, Estoril and
Penha Longa.
The first two have previously hosted
European Tour events, while the
undulating Penha Longa, a Ritz
Carlton resort, offers the sort of
spectacular scenery which makes the
front pages of holiday brochures.
While Lisbon’s golf was making a
good impression, so was the food.
Seafood fans will love Ibo, a former
warehouse just feet from the Tagus,
which celebrates Portugal’s links to
Mozambique. It offers dishes such as
piri-piri Tiger Prawns, fish loins in
coconut sauce and crab curry.
A few streets away is Rib, a
magnet for meat and red wine lovers.
Another fine restaurant with super
service close to Rossio Square is
Gambrinus, where the seafood bake
served in a scallop shell was superb.
Meanwhile, the locals outnumber
the tourists at Granja Velha, an
authentic Portuguese restaurant.
The speciality fish dish, which was
somewhere between a paella and a
risotto, was delicious and I knew this
was my kind of place when the waiter
put the pan containing the leftovers
on the table for us to pick at.

New Meg
in Monaco
of fast Renaults
■TheFANS
rejoice!
French firm are
using the Monaco GP to
unveil the new Renault
Sport version of the
Megane before its
officially unveiled at
September’s Frankfurt
motor show.
Apparently it’ll feature
the trademark yellow and
black colour scheme – a
shame because I like this
stealthy camouflage
prototype version.
Electric revenue
SAW some stuff in
the week that really
surprised me…Ford’s
market value is
$44billion.
That, in itself, is not
surprising perhaps. But
when you read electric
car maker Tesla is worth
$51bn it makes you
scratch your head.
Put simply, the financial
forecasters are more
likely to invest (and more
likely to invest more) in
■
Tesla’s future than the
Blue Oval’s. It’s all about
the technology.
Which is why Ford have
just fired Mark Fields as
their CEO and replaced
him with James Hackett,
a man previously in
charge of developing
their self-driving cars.
That tells you a lot
about our motoring
futures, right there. It’s
going to be driverless.
And pretty soon, too.

feeling a bit of a fatty – a little
lacking in the grip department?
Fear not, because the
Performante version solves
those problems in a flash.
It’s a whole 40kg lighter than
the standard Huracan and is
the first Lambo to adopt an
active aerodynamic system to
generate (or lose) downforce
as and when needed.
By changing spoiler settings
and controlling flaps, the air
movement over, under and
through the car can be
adjusted on the fly.
Just what you need when

gets some air
on his CBR at
Cadwell Park
Track
WHAT does 0-62 in
under three seconds,
can hit 165mph and costs
£2,500?
No, it’s not a skydiving course.
It’s my “new” (11-year-old) Honda
CBR600RR.
I’ve moved up a notch from last year.
My previous £500 ’orrible ’onda – a
20-year-old CBR600, dealt with seven
pretty hectic track days. But was just
too old to really mut the custard. A nice
man from Yorkshire gave me my £500
back for it.
This is precisely what happens when
the track day bug bites. You start off all
un-serious about the whole job and the
next thing you know, you’re selling
household chattels and body organs for
your next stronger fix.
The nice man from Yorkshire will
day Honda’s crazy fun for just £2,500
discover this.
Shopping around
for another bike was
pretty time-consuming, even though I
knew exactly what I wanted.
Honda’s venerable CBR600RR has
been around since 2003. It got a refresh
in 2005 and a total re-write in 2007 and
has been much the same ever since.
It’s pretty much the perfect formula
for me. With a tad over 100bhp and
around 170kgs all-up weight there isn’t
an embarrassment of power to overwhelm the available grip.
The 600RR was also the bike in
Honda’s range to draw most heavily on
their
four-stroke
MotoGP
bike
expertise, especially when it came to
mass centralisation, geometry and
stance. Its chassis balance is legendary
as a result.
It’s also the bike that provides the
engine for the Moto2 grand prix feeder
class. How good an endorsement is that
for both power and dependability?
With a rev ceiling of 17,000rpm it’s
hard to understand how Honda could
make an engine like this reliable. But
they have.
You should hear what 17,000rpm
sounds like when your chin is pinned
to the top of the tank and the throttle
bodies are fully open. It’s an insane
noise.
Insanely good, I might add.
My bike was the sixth in my sniffingaround queue. I’m a fussy old git.
There was something not quite right
about the others – too much money, no
spare wheels, no V5 in the owner’s
name (run!) and generally not enough
evidence of luuurve and affection.
I’m a great believer in actually visiting a bike at the owner’s house. Tells
you a lot about a person, doesn’t it?
From the state of their back yard or
front garden you can glean a lot about
how much they care about their
possessions.
Mark in Huntingdon was clearly a
fusser. He had spent strong money on
stuff that mattered and the whole bike
was OCD clean.
He wanted three large. We haggled
and ten minutes later it was in the back
of my truck heading for home for £500
less than he wanted.
What a massive bargain.
To match these performance figures
and to lap Brands Hatch in under 50
seconds in a car you would need to
spend £50-60-70,000. Possibly more.
Last Monday was my first outing of
the year at the sublime Cadwell Park.
That’s the infamous “mountain” I’ve
just jumped in the picture. All I had
done prior to this was cover the engine
cases in R+G crash protectors and fit a
(crucial) front brake guard.
The pessimist in me expected a bit of
clutch slip, maybe a misfire, maybe
warped brake discs or suspension
settings all to cock.
Not a bit of it. The bike is perfect –
and therefore an even bigger bargain
than I first thought.
Bike track days are a bargain, too.
Just £109 for a whole day – seven
20-minute sessions – on a track swept
clean by marshals, with no side roads,
no Gatso cameras, no speed limit and
everyone travelling in the same
direction at pretty much the same
speed – flat out.
Seven 20-minute sessions might not
sound like much but boy, my arms and
shoulders aren’t half aching while I’m
typing this.

saving.

RITS could save

this
half-term,
despite an 8%
hike in holiday
M&S Bank says the cost of a
holiday next week has risen by
7.9%, or £280, year-on-year.
But families can still save more
than £950 on a getaway if they choose
a lesser-known destination instead
of more popular resorts.
A firm favourite with Brits, Spain
offers the biggest alternative destination saving this year with families
able to pocket an impressive £952 or
21% by choosing to stay in the southern resort of Fuengirola rather than
Seville.
Direct flights to Fuengirola are also
more than £500 cheaper than ones to
Seville, with accommodation costs
also significantly cheaper.
Bulgaria is the best value destination, costing £3,172 for a family of
four. Families heading to Greece
could save £500 by opting for Zakynthos instead of Crete. Meanwhile,
There’s a hol lot
of cash to save
choosing to holiday in the coastal
town of Ystad in Sweden is £488
cheaper than the capital Stockholm.
Despite more expensive flights,
accommodation in Ystad is almost
half the price when compared with
Stockholm.
The research by M&S opens the
door to some great savings for those
who are prepared to try something
new, which is another great reason to
look at these alternative destinations. As well as saving hundreds of
FREE
pounds, holidaying Brits can also get
the chance to visit somewhere new
away from the usual crowded tourist
hot spots.
TRAVEL MONEY TOP TIPS:
Try to be flexible with flight times.
An indirect, night or weekday flight
could prove cheaper.
Shop around and check comparison
sites for prices.
Always set a budget and remember
to factor in travel money for snacks,
excursions, taxis, tips and other

WELCOME to our
Wordsearch with a
difference.
Not only are there 21 lost
names hidden in the grid,
written forwards,
backwards, up, down or
diagonally, but if you find
them and cross them out,
the letters that remain will
spell out a further related
name.
As usual, we’re not going
to tell you what the lost
names are, but they do all
have a strong connection.
The hidden name played a
fencing master – and that’s
a clue!

MODERN BACK PAIN RELIEF
SCIATICURE
SCIATIC NERVE PAIN
TM
Breaks pain signals
using an integrated
Accupressure pad
Accupressure Wrap is the quick-start to
back pain relief - and to getting your
life on track - AFTER JUST ONE USE!
Drug free, no electronics,
buttons, wires or magnets
Worn invisibly under clothing
all day, and even as you sleep!
How Sciaticure™ technology works:
Independently tested and proven
When you wear a SciaticureTM Accupressure
wrap just under the knee, the integrated pad
places gentle pressure at the top of the calf,
breaking the pain signal along the Sciatic
Nerve. And, worn during the day, the pressure
continues its work invisibly under clothing, so
you can just get on with life.
Fits in seconds, removed in moments
Supported by Dr. Malcolm Pope, inventor
of renowned Biofeedbac Technology
Comfortable – adjustable to any size
Perfect for men and women of all ages

Five-time Naps Table champ
Moorestyle’s best bets…
EPSOM DERBY
SO what happens when
you haven’t got a “sexy”
horse on your hands, yet
his trial form time and
time again keeps being
vindicated?
Well, you simply go with
plain Kev and support
him in the world’s greatest
Flat race, the Epsom
Derby on Saturday… Cue
CRACKSMAN.
Yes he looked green and
undoubtedly ill at ease in
his warm-up race at the
Surrey track in April but
ultimately overcame those
negatives to record a
workmanlike success.
Since then the
runner-up
Permian has
landed the
Dante Stakes,
the third
finished
second in the
Dee Stakes and
the fifth lost his
maiden tag.
The son of Frankel
has since floated over the
hallowed turf in the
“Breakfast for the Stars”
workout and has improved
massively at home.
Add to the equation his
trainer John Gosden, rider
Frankie Dettori (above)
and the fact no stand-out
horse has emerged from
Aidan O’Brien’s yard and
it adds up to Cracksman
taking his career tally to
three from three.
Cliffs Of Moher is the
best colt that Aidan can
offer up in resistance to
the Gosden winning
machine and he is surely
much better than his
uninspiring success at
Chester. Best of the rest
could well be Benbatl, a
quality colt that has been
crying out for a step up in
trip.
Rhododendron is a short
priced favourite to
improve on her 1,000
Guineas second at
Newmarket in the Investec
Oaks on Friday.
She looks a cast-iron
certainty to see out the
extra yardage but the
value lies with another
O’Brien inmate RAIN
GODDESS. She ran an
outstanding fifth in the
French 1,000 Guineas and
finally gets a chance to
race over the distance she
was bred for.
Grab the 25-1
each-way and
see her push
her more
illustrious
stablemate all
the way to the
winning line.
Jack Hobbs is
sure to start
favourite for the
Coronation Cup at
3.10 on Friday but his
profile is inconsistent, so
I will oppose him with
Jockey Club Stakes
winner SEVENTH
HEAVEN, a Galileo filly
that would benefit from a
fast pace.
Today WALKAMI, who
got off the mark at the
third time of asking over
fences, should defy a
mark of 108 to land the
nap at Uttoxeter 4.45.
THE WEEK AHEAD
DANDILION returns to
the scene of her sole
victory at Wolverhampton
(6.10) on Tuesday and
granted a run through the
field in the closing stages
with her hold-up style, she
looks sure to go close.

conditions could not stop
Churchill becoming the
fourth Ballydoyle horse to
complete the 2,000
Guineas double.
Last season’s champion
juvenile justified the hype
when he claimed Classic
glory on his reappearance
at Newmarket three weeks
ago and was a short
priced 4-9 favourite to
follow up back on home
soil in the Tattersalls Irish
2,000 Guineas.
It was not totally plain
sailing in the soft ground,
but his class shone
through in the closing
stages as Aidan O’Brien’s
relentless colt powered
two-and-a-half lengths
clear in the hands of Ryan
Moore.
The jockey, a man of few
words, was unusually
ebullient in his post-race
assessment.
He said: “I think he’s a
very talented horse, he
does everything you want
him to do as a jockey and
he ticks all the boxes.
“When you sit on him,
there’s a lot of power
underneath you and he
never misses a beat.”
O’Brien was winning the
race for the 11th time and
has now trained seven of
the last 10 winners of the
first Classic of the Irish
season.
He said: “He’s a great
horse. He’ll probably go
for the St James’s Palace
Stakes.”

HARRY SPEEDS IN
JET-HOOVED Harry Angel emerged
as a potential sprinting champion at
Haydock yesterday.
His victory in the Sandy Lane Stakes was the
first part of a Group Two double for jockey
Adam Kirby and trainer Clive Cox.
They also bagged the Temple Stakes with
Priceless.
But it was Harry Angel who made the biggest
impression by leaving his rivals trailing.
Harry Angel shot out of the stalls and dictated
the pace at the head of affairs.
It was clear entering the final furlong that he
was not for catching and he passed the post with
four-and-a-half lengths in hand.
Kirby said: “He’s a very big, strong horse and

I think we were all aware that there was nothing
in the race quick enough to lead him.
“I just let him do it and it will do him good
because he’s had a race and he’ll improve again
from this.
“I think the world of him. We haven’t seen the
best of him yet. He’s a machine.”
Priceless, owned by Chelsea director Alan
Spence, held off Goldream and Alpha Delphini
to win the Temple.
Cox added: “She’s just getting better and
better. Since we dropped her back to five
furlongs she’s just improved and taken a step up.
It will be the King’s Stand Stakes next for her.”
Westwood’s hot
on trail of Dodt
LEE WESTWOOD produced golf worthy
of the late Seve Ballesteros to
stay in contention to win the
BMW PGA Championship at
the 24th attempt. He carded

a third round of 72 to lie three shots off
the lead held by Australian Andrew Dodt.
After 14 holes at windswept Wentworth,
Westwood had hit just one green in
regulation and was three over par. But
the ex-world No.1 then parred the difficult
15th and birdied the last three holes.
The Ryder Cup veteran, who has twice
finished runner-up in the European Tour’s
£5.4million flagship event, needed just 23
putts and earned some high praise from
caddie Billy Foster.
Westwood, 44, said: “Billy said he had
not seen an exhibition of short game and
putting like that since he worked for Seve
25 years ago.
“After 14 holes I hadn’t had a birdie putt
and I was just grinding, trying to get up
and down when I missed the green,
which was pretty often.
“It felt odd and nice in a way. I had gone
through the confused and slightly angry
stage and was just laughing, wondering
who this was chipping and putting.
“I’ve worked hard on my short game
and maybe it has finally clicked.
“I feel like I have all the shots. I’m just
enjoying playing golf at the moment and,
as one of the oldest guys out here, being
able to compete.”
The last four groups were a combined
17 over par as halfway leaders Thomas
Pieters, Scott Jamieson and
Francesco Molinari shot 78, 76
and 74 respectively.
But Dodt defied the conditions with a
68 to finish on eight under par, a shot
ahead of South African Branden Grace.
Westwood and Molinari were two
strokes further back with Open champion
Henrik Stenson, Ireland’s Shane Lowry
and Japan’s Hideto Tanihara on four
under. Tanihara’s 67 was the lowest score
of the day and lifted him 32 places up the
leaderboard.

DAILY STAR SUNDAY, May 28, 2017
LEWIS HAMILTON’S dream of a title
takeover turned into a nightmare in
Monaco yesterday.
The Brit’s hopes of a third grand prix victory
there were sensationally shattered when he
failed to make it into the final shootout for
today’s sixth round of the season.
Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne crashed with less
than a minute to go in the second session and
the resulting yellow warning flags forced Hammy
to drastically slow down and lose out on a chance
to squeeze into the top-10 grid decider.
The shock setback means the three-time champ
will start down among the no-hopers in 14th for
the 78-lap, 161-mile race around the perilously
bumpy, narrow and twisty circuit where there
have been 28 winners from pole in 63 GPs.
Hamilton, 32, must chase Ferrari’s awesome
twosome of 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen and
four-time title-holder Sebastian Vettel who roared

helter-skelter track, has not tasted the victory
champagne since triumphing in Australia in
2013 and he has not had a pole-topping position
since the French GP in 2008 – 128 races ago.
The Finn, 37 – rumoured to be in his last season
with Ferrari – said: “That was good fun. It feels
great to be on pole.
“What I must do now is make the best of it in
the race. And that is exactly what I shall do.
“It has been too long a wait for a win but being
up front here in Monaco, where pole position can
be so crucial, is a clear advantage. But I know
that Sebastian will be chasing me hard.” German
master Vettel, the championship pacemaker over
second-placed Hamilton, was never out of the top
three in each of the sessions and he said: “Kimi
did brilliantly.
“Our one-two is great – a real highlight that
shows how superb our cars are, thanks to all the
guys in the garage. It was a lot of fun.
“Now it is up to us two drivers to cash in and
make sure the team are rewarded for their great
work and effort.”
Hamilton’s poorly performing
Mercedes was never on the
pace and he said: “That’s
pretty much the weekend

done. I will just be driving around in whatever
position. I will try to get into the top 10 but it will
be a nice Sunday drive I imagine.
“I am deflated. I just struggled with the car and
I can’t pinpoint the problem. It is a sad, sad
moment but it is not in me not to keep pushing.
“It is all so disappointing. The lap I was on may
have got me into the top 10 but I think I would
still have struggled to make it in to the top five.
The Ferraris were really quick.”
Team-mate Valtteri Bottas snatched a last-gasp
third spot but said: “The Ferraris were much too
quick for us and we will have our work cut out.”

BROOK KO’D BY EYE TROUBLE SELL 44
KELL BROOK suffered heartbreak
in front of 27,000 home fans after
being stopped in the 11th round
by Errol Spence last night.
American Spence silenced
Bramall Lane by taking the
Sheffield star’s IBF world
welterweight title after
forcing two knockdowns.
When Brook went
down for the
TOUGH
COOKIE:
Spence
and Brook
■ by NICK PARKINSON
second time in the 11th round, his
left eye was shut and he was
counted out on one knee by
referee Howard Foster.
Brook suffered a broken right
eye socket in a
fifth-round KO
loss to
Gennady
Golovkin in
September but
it was his
other eye
that was
the
problem
in his
fourth
defence.
It was a
fight that
swung one
way and
then the
other
before
Brook
fell
apart, going down in the 10th and
then the 11th.
Spence, 27, took the initiative
early on with single jabs and it
was soon apparent that his speed
would cause Brook problems.
But Brook, 31, who won the title
from American Shawn Porter
three years ago, broke through
Spence’s guard on a few
occasions with right hands.
A fascinating fight ebbed and
flowed one way and the other,
with Spence’s speed evident
when he landed a right to the jaw.
Brook was unable to load up on
his punches and the fourth and
fifth rounds were messy with
clinches.
Brook landed his best punches
of the fight in the eighth round as
he began to find the openings he
had been waiting for.
But Spence responded with
more volume of punches
including a left and a right flush
to the temple in round nine.
Brook’s left eye was almost
swollen shut when he sank to a
knee in the 10th after being
caught by a body shot and then a
left and right to the jaw while on
the ropes.
The champion looked in trouble
briefly but showed great fighting
spirit and powers of recovery to
then go on the attack later in a
thunderous round.
But it was Brook’s last stand.
Brook was a Cyclops by the 11th
round and when he sank to his
knee again pawing his left eye
without Spence throwing a punch
it was all over.
Brook said: “It was a very tough
fight. I got caught in the seventh
in the eye and it felt like the
Golovkin one. It was getting
worse I got double vision and I
couldn’t see out of it so I had to
stop. I’m gutted to lose my belt in
front of my own fans, devastated.”
Spence said: “I showed true grit
to win. The goal for me is to unify
the belt.”
Earlier on the undercard, George
Groves won a world title at the
fourth attempt after overcoming a
slow start to force a sixth round
stoppage of Fedor Chudinov.

DAILY STAR SUNDAY, May 28, 2017
Tresco
leading
chase
A THRILLING finish is on
the cards at Taunton today
as Somerset chase
another 219 to beat
Hampshire in Division
One of the County
Championship.
Craig Overton, who has
been knocking on the
England door, took 3-26 as
Somerset dismissed
Hampshire – for whom
Mike Carberry top scored
with 51 and Gareth Berg
added 49 – for 293.
That set the hosts 258 to
win and they reached
stumps last night with all
10 wickets intact as Dean
Elgar (17*) and Marcus
Trescothick
(22*, right)
steered
their side
to 39-0.
At the
halfway
stage of
the other
top-flight
game, Essex trail Surrey
by 154 in their first innings
after closing on 215-3.
Dan Lawrence is
undefeated on 78 in
Essex’s total.
Former England skipper
Alastair Cook was out 36,
while his fellow opener
Nick Browne made 52.
Earlier, Surrey were
dismissed for 369 with
in-form Kumar
Sangakkara’s fifth
successive century
ending after he had
reached exactly 200.
Jamie Porter took 4-89
and Matthew Quinn 3-66.
Broad’s

DIVISION TWO leaders
Nottinghamshire are
well on their way to
racking up another victory.
Trent Bridge visitors
Gloucestershire buckled
in the face of the hosts’
430-9 declared and were
dismissed for 149 despite
a defiant 53 from skipper
Phil Mustard.
Stuart Broad (below) and
Luke Fletcher took three
wickets apiece.
They were asked to
follow on and ended day
two on 37-1 to still trail by
244 runs.
Second-placed Kent are
well in control against
Sussex.
After
posting
369 in
their first
innings,
Kent
dismissed
their
visitors for
164 with Darren Stevens
taking 5-40.
However, skipper Sam
Northeast decided not to
enforce the follow on and
his batsmen responded by
reaching the close at
116-0 with Daniel BellDrummond on 68* and
Sean Dickson 42*.
The runs continued to
flow on day three at Derby
as Derbyshire, replying
to Leicestershire’s
mammoth 619, reached
532-8 to trail by only 87.
There were centuries
from captain Billy
Godleman (141) and Shiv
Thakor (132).
BIG BEN:
Stokes clocked
up a mighty 101
Stokes just ton-derful
BEN STOKES again demonstrated his
star quality with his second ODI
hundred as England won a last-ball
thriller by two runs to wrap up the
Royal London Series.
Stokes cashed in on his remarkable early
fortune as his century helped England score
330-6 at the Ageas Bowl.
Half-centuries from Quinton de Kock (98),
David Miller (71*) and AB de Villiers (52),
and some late big hitting from Chris
Morris, then took South Africa to the
brink of a series-levelling victory.
But defending seven runs from
the last over, Mark Wood (right)
held his nerve to restrict the
tourists to 328-5 and give
England an unassaible
2-0 lead ahead of the final
game at Lord’s tomorrow.
Stokes said: “It’s always
nice hitting the ball well and
knowing you’re in a bit of form.
“These one-dayers are a great
opportunity for that, and for the whole
team, and we’ve seen Jos hitting the ball
nicely too, which is great for us going forward.
“Hopefully we can just continue this form into
the Champions Trophy.”
Stokes, cleared to play after a knee injury scare
in the series opener, was dropped twice before
going on to equal his career-best 101, hitting 11
fours and three sixes from 79 balls.
On a day of six dropped catches by South
Africa, it was Stokes who made them pay most
heavily, along with Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 65 and
telling runs too from skipper Eoin Morgan (45).
After England had been put in under heavy
cloud cover, Jason Roy’s lean run continued
when Kagiso Rabada took his off stump
Alex Hales had just been dropped at long-on off
Keshav Maharaj when he edged an attempted cut
to De Kock off Dwaine Pretorius.
Joe Root batted well but was then cut off in his
prime, run out backing up when Pretorius
deflected a drive by Morgan on to the stumps.
Morgan lived dangerously, but his fourth-wicket
■ by NEIL NAISMITH
stand with Stokes was worth 95 by the time De
Kock gathered a low catch off Rabada in the 33rd
over. Stokes completed his hundred with a
scampered two, only to hole out at long-off soon
afterwards, giving Maharaj a wicket in his
final over.
Buttler (65*) hit four of his five fours in
one over off Andile Phehlukwayo as he
and Moeen Ali saw England rack up
111 in the last 10 overs.
With the ball in hand, Stokes
had Amla out in his first
over. Liam Plunkett (3-64)
made an impact by having
Faf du Plessis out
edged behind and
also grabbed the
much-needed
wicket
of
De
Villiers, who had
joined De Kock
in a significant
stand.
De Kock was
finally snared by
Moeen but Miller
stood firm and hit a
superb half-century
from just 34 balls.
He found a new
ally in big-hitting
Morris and their
e f f o r t s
dragged the
tourists close
to victory
b e f o r e
Wood’s

MURRAY STILL GETS TOP MARKS
WORLD No.1: Murray
ANDY MURRAY’S form is not a cause for great
concern yet but that would change if it carried
on through Wimbledon, according to his
former coach Mark Petchey.
The Scot arrived in Paris for the French Open
having won only five matches since February
and on the back of a comprehensive loss to
Fabio Fognini in his opening round in Rome.
The world No.1 has excelled on clay the last
two seasons – winning Masters titles and
reaching his first final at Roland Garros 12
■ by MIKE SWANN
months ago but the chances of a repeat this
year appear remote.
But Petchey said: “Obviously it’s not what he
would have wanted but sometimes in life it
doesn’t always go smoothly.
“There is a little bit of luck involved and
having to play Fognini late at night in Rome
was a very tough draw.
“Andy’s always been very good at not getting
too high with the highs and too low with the
lows and you’ve got to try to keep it in
perspective.
“Some things in his game compared to last
year perhaps would be the bigger concern for
him, not dominating as much with his
forehand, and I think his serve in recent weeks
hasn’t been as accurate as he would have
liked.
“I’m sure those are the things Ivan Lendl and
Jamie Delgado will be trying to fine tune.”

JAMIE AIMS TO BE
GAT’S NO.1 CHOICE
JAMIE GEORGE wants to
climb out of the shadow of
Dylan Hartley once and for
all by becoming Lions
boss Warren Gatland’s
first-choice hooker.
The Saracens star has had
to play second fiddle to
Hartley for England
but, having got the
nod ahead of his
country’s captain for
a place in the Lions
squad, George wants
to prove he should
lead the front-row
band in New Zealand.
George and his Lions
pals are packed and ready to
fly out tomorrow for their battles
in the world champions backyard,
aiming to become Lions legends
and end the 46-year drought since
the last tour triumph there.
And George insists he cannot
wait to prove he deserves his place
awarded by Gatland (above).
Ireland’s Rory Best and Wales’
Ken Owens are the other
contenders to wear the No.2 jersey
in the Tests but George, 26, said:
“A Lions tour gives you an increase
in energy.
“Despite your body feeling a bit
battered at the end of a long
season, that does not come into it
as I am so excited about being
with the Lions.
“I have got a week now without
doing too much and that will be
nice for my body.
“It was fantastic winning the
European trophy with Sarries and
it was a bit surreal getting selected
by the Lions. Now I’m here and
really looking forward to it.
“Everyone would prefer to start,
but at the same time whatever role
I am given I will do to the best of
my ability. For England so far it
has been off the
■ by GARY FITZGERALD
bench; whether it is the same
here, I don’t know.
“But whatever opportunities I
get I will be giving it my best.
“I guess it’s a change not to be
competing with Dylan but it
will still be really tough
competition.
“Both Rory and Ken
are fantastic players.
“If we can push
each other along and
the competition is
strong, it will only be
better for the team.
“I am hugely looking
forward to working with
both those lads.
“Rory and I are good
competitors when we
play against each other
for our countries.
“I have a huge amount
of respect for him.
“He is a top man and
has been helping me
out a lot in camp with
the calls.
“We have been
bouncing ideas off
each other and I am
really looking forward
to working with him for
the next seven weeks.
“Warren has said it is a
level playing field for everyone.
“My mindset is that you have to
earn the right to get the shirt.
That is my ambition.
“I know that I will have to be on
my best form up against two
world-class players.
“But I am doing
everything to
get myself
r i g h t
w h e n
t h a t
chance
comes.”

STING IN
THE TALE
■ by GARY FITZGERALD
Wasps 20 Exeter 23
(after extra-time)
GARETH STEENSON was
the Exeter hero as his
extra-time penalty
confirmed the Devon men
as English champions for
the first time.
The fly-half had kicked
the Chiefs level against
Wasps with just seconds
remaining in normal time.
Steenson then stepped
up to nail the biggest kick
of his career with two
minutes left in extra-time
to win a pulsating clash.
Chiefs dominated the
first half and led 14-10 at
the break after wing Jack
Nowell and full-back Phil
Dollman crossed for tries
converted by Steenson.
Wasps gave themselves
a major lift on the stroke
of half-time when Danny
Cipriani, Tommy Taylor and
Dan Robson combined to
feed Jimmy Gopperth.
The Premiership’s Player
of the Year darted over the
try line and converted
himself.
Wasps picked up the
momentum at the start of
the second half and went
in front when Elliot Daly
grabbed Christian Day’s
chip through and touched
down for Gopperth to
convert easily.
Gopperth increased the
lead with a penalty but
Steenson hit back to make
it a three-point game with
just 15 minutes remaining.
Chiefs turned down one
easy penalty chance but in
a dramatic finish took the
clash into extra-time when
Steenson kicked a penalty
with 30 seconds to go.
With extra-time pointless,
It looked like the game
was going to be settled by
penalty kicks.
But then Wasps
collapsed a scrum and
referee JP Doyle gave
Steenson the easy task of
sending his kick over.
Two minutes later, he and
his team-mates were
celebrating after lifting the
Premiership trophy.
Hero Steenson said: “To
be standing here from
where we were seven
years ago is amazing.”
Scarlets won the Pro12
title for the first time
since 2004 as they
produced a brilliant
display to defeat Munster
46-22 in Dublin.
The Welsh side surged
clear with tries from Liam
Williams, Steff Evans,
Gareth Davies and Tadhg
Beirne. Tyler Bleyendaal
touched down as Munster
trailed 29-10 at the break.
DTH van der Merwe
added another Scarlets try
before consolations from
Andrew Conway and Keith
Earls while James Davies
went over late on.
★
Jones hasn’t ruled out being Ed boy for Lions
EDDIE JONES has left the door ajar to one day
become the Lions king.
The Aussie admits he would “never
say no” to being head coach if the
circumstances were right in the future.
Kiwi Warren Gatland leads the best
of Britain and Ireland for a second
time for the forthcoming Test series
with world champions New Zealand.
And Jones, who had successful
spells with Australia, South Africa
and Japan before transforming England from
World Cup flops to potential Webb Ellis Cup
winners in 2019, said: “I don’t sit there at night
thinking, ‘I hope I’m going to be the next Lions
coach’ but then again I am open to everything.
“I’ve never said no to anything. People in
Japan ask me if I would consider going back
there and I’ve told them the same. I don’t say no.
“I’m coaching England up to 2019 and after
that we’ll see where we go.
“The Lions job is a unique one. There’s no
natural progression to it. They decide at a
certain time and if you’re in the market at the
right time, you are going to get a call.”
With so many of his first-choice players
heading off on Lions duty, Jones has picked a
youthful, fairly inexperienced squad for the
two-Test campaign with Argentina.
He has named Chris Robshaw and George
Ford as co-captains for today’s tour warm-up
match against Barbarians at Twickenham.

Pin with

THIBAUT PINOT won a
thrilling stage 20 to leave
the 100th Giro d’Italia
perfectly poised ahead of
today’s deciding time trial.
Only 90 seconds now
separate race leader Nairo
Quintana from Domenico
Pozzovivo in sixth – with
the first four riders all in
with a realistic chance of
victory.
Movistar’s Quintana
finished fifth in the 190km
stage between Pordenone
and Asiago to hold on to
the leader’s pink jersey.
But the Colombian leads
by only 39 seconds from
defending champion and
home favourite Vincenzo
Nibali.
Pinot’s victory moved
him into third place.
Fourth-placed time-trial
specialist Tom Dumoulin,
who had held the pink
jersey until Friday, is also
still very much in
contention.
Today’s 29.3km time trial
is from Monza to Milan.
Tom on
Don roll
■ by DAVE FERN
TOM SYKES won his first
race of the season – with
his NINTH straight
victory at Donington Park.
The Huddersfield ace
loves the Leicestershire
circuit and now moves to
second place in the World
Superbikes standings.
The sixth-round win
leaves him 50 points
behind Kawasaki
team-mate Jonathan Rea
who crashed in the
closing stages while
second.
Sykes dedicated victory
to former MotoGP
champion Nicky Hayden
who died last week after a
cycling accident in Italy.
“It’s been a strange
weekend without Nicky
around and this one is for
him,” said Sykes.
Local favourite Leon
Haslam was second and
Pata Yamaha’s Alex Lowes
snatched third place on
the last lap. Chaz Davies
also crashed out.
Cats’ win
purr-fect
NICKY CATSBURG took
the main race at FIA
WTCC round at the
Nurburgring, Germany.
It was his first victory for
Polestar Cyan Racing.
The Dutchman made a
great start from second
on the grid to take the
lead away from Norbert
Michelisz in pole at the
first bend.
He then held off Rob
Huff at the second and the
Brit slipped to third
behind Michelisz.
Catsburg led by only
three 10ths of a second
after the first lap of the
Nordschleife but he pulled
away over the final two
laps, winning by three
seconds.
Michelisz was pressured
by Huff for the entire
distance of the race but
his Honda’s superior
straight-line speed
kept him ahead of
the Citroen driver.
Catsburg’s
team-mate Thed
Bjork was fourth.
Local lad Tom
just crazy
for Cas
TOM HOLMES has stepped
up from a milk crate on the
terraces to becoming a key
member of Super League
leaders Castleford’s ‘great
entertainers’.
Now Holmes signs autographs
rather than asking for them from
players he lines up alongside.
Instead of being fourth-choice
half-back the youngster, 21, has
risen up the pecking order in the
wake of Rangi Chase’s sudden
departure to Widnes.
Unsurprisingly the teenage
Tigers’ fan finds the situation all a
bit surreal, especially after his
eye-catching 95-metre breakaway
try against Leeds at Magic
Weekend.
“I’m a local lad and a massive Cas
fan,” said Holmes ahead of
tomorrow’s game at Leigh.
“I stood behind the sticks on my
milk crate cheering them on. So it’s
a dream playing out here.
“I got autographs off players like
Andy Lynch.
“I love this club and it’s incredible
to be here. I was a mad supporter
when we got relegated in 2006 but
stuck with them.
“Now, everyone is talking about
Cas, Cas, Cas and it’s great to be
here. Where else would you want
to be?”
With first-team action limited,
Holmes dropped down to the game’s
second and even third-tiers with
Batley and Oxford.
“I never really thought about
elsewhere, it was just about waiting
patiently for my chance,” added
Holmes, whose latest run-out came
in the Tigers’ 32-22 win over Chase
and the Vikings on Friday.
“I hadn’t played many Super
League games
■ by TREVOR BAXTER
before going to Batley but it helped
get me that experience.
“It was a challenge at Oxford.
They were struggling but once I got
some game-time it was good for me
to try and control a team and be
around players.
“So I’m really grateful Daryl has
given me the opportunity to start a
few games since Rangi left. It’s
really helped.
“I’ve listened and I’m just trying
to string some consistent games
together.”
Playing alongside England star
Luke Gale has been another
privilege for Holmes.
“Watching Luke in training, you
learn a lot. But playing at the side
of him is something you dream of.
I’m desperate to cement that spot in
the team.”
Leigh gained a first-ever Super
League away win at Hull on Friday
and Holmes knows Cas face a
testing 80 minutes in front of the
Sky cameras.
“Anyone can beat anyone in this
league and there have been some
big upsets,” he said. “But we want
to win something this year and I
can really see it happening.”

SMITH OUT TO MAKE AMENDS
WARRINGTON boss Tony

Smith’s Wolves were

Barkley’s
departure
could see the
arrival of Gylfi

Everton

EXCLUSIVE
■ by PAUL HETHERINGTON
WEST HAM have
emerged as major
rivals to Tottenham
for Everton and
England midfielder
Ross Barkley.
The Daily Star Sunday
has been told that
Hammers boss Slaven
Bilic (below) will meet
Barkley’s wage demands
of £140k a week.
That is just over double
his current pay packet.
Everton and manager
Ronald Koeman are
preparing for his
departure after he failed
to sign a new
contract by the
end of the
season.
They have
made it clear
that they are
prepared to
pay up to
£35million
for Swansea
midfielder
Gylfi Sigurdsson,
27. And Everton are also
weighing up a move to
bring
back Wayne Rooney whose
13-year career at
Manchester United is
expected to end this
summer.
Tottenham have set the
pace in the race for
Barkley, 23, who has also
been linked with a
move to United
under boss Jose
Mourinho.
Everton’s
valuation of
£50m and the
player’s
hefty wage
demands are
seen as major
stumbling
blocks. Barkley
is keen on the
MICHAEL CARRICK has signed a new
one-year deal at Manchester United, the club
announced last night.
Carrick, 35, who joined the club in 2006, said:
I am delighted that my journey with this great
club is going to continue.
“My focus now is looking ahead to my
testimonial match on Sunday; it will be a very
proud moment for me and my family.”
Boss Jose Mourinho said: “Not only is he a
great footballer, he is also a great role model
to our younger members of the team. I am
delighted he has extended his contract.”
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid striker Antoine
Griezmann has denied reports that he already
has a deal to join United in the summer.
Griezmann tweeted: “The rumours are
unfounded. I’m still Colchonero. My direction
will be established after discussion.”
prospect of joining Spurs
and linking up with his
close friend Dele Alli.
He also sees a move there
helping him regain his
England squad place.
But West Ham are
thinking big and want to
make a statement with
flagship signings.
They have already begun
their summer recruitment
by signing right-back
Pablo Zabaleta, 32, on a
free transfer from
Manchester City – as
predicted in the Daily
Star Sunday two weeks
ago.
Everton, meanwhile, are
also keen on Ajax midfield
ace Davy Klaassen, 24.
Klaassen captained the
Dutch league runners-up
in the 2-0 Europa League
final defeat by United.
TOTTENHAM have offered £2million for
Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez.
But the Spanish club want £3m for the
keeper who is currently on loan at White Hart
Lane.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sees Lopez,
23, as back-up to Hugo Lloris because current
cover keeper Michel Vorm is 33 and has only a
year remaining on his contract.
Tottenham, though, face competition for
Lopez, highly regarded by Pochettino, if they
fail to reach a compromise with Espanyol.
Liverpool are also eyeing the Spain
Under-21s international.
Spurs are looking to take the next step up
after coming second to champions Chelsea –
their highest finish since 1963 – and will move
into their new stadium in 2018-19.
PAUL HETHERINGTON
LIVERPOOL are the latest club to
join the chase for Fulham starlet
Ryan Sessegnon.
The left-back, 17, is already high
on the wanted list of Chelsea,
Arsenal and both Manchester
clubs.
Sessegnon made his first-team
debut in the EFL Cup against
Leyton Orient in August aged 16
years and 81 days. His goal
against Cardiff made him the first
player born in the 21st century to
score in English league football.
NEWLY promoted Brighton have joined
Turkish giants Galatasaray in the hunt for
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
The England Under-21s player, 19, scored 26
goals on loan at Championship side Bristol
City last season.
Galatasaray, along with Brighton, are
monitoring his forthcoming talks with Chelsea
boss Antonio Conte.
Chelsea don’t want to give up on the striker,
fearing another Romelu Lukaku situation.
They could send Abraham out on loan again
next season to continue his development.
South London-born Abraham, whose brother
Timmy joined Fulham, finished the season as
Bristol City’s Player of the Year, Young Player
of the Year and Top Goalscorer – the first to
win all three awards in the same season.
TONY STENSON
TERRIERS PLOT
MOOY SWOOP
HUDDERSFIELD are planning a double raid
on Manchester City for midfielder Aaron
Mooy and goalkeeper Angus Gunn.
The Championship play-off finalists, who
meet Reading tomorrow at Wembley, had
Aussie Mooy on loan last season.
And they are also eyeing England Under-21s
ace Gunn as a loan target for next season.
Gunn, 21, is seen as a potential replacement
for Danny Ward, who is on loan at the Terriers
from Liverpool.
Mooy, meanwhile, has created a big
impression this season and Huddersfield will
try to make it a permanent deal if they win
promotion tomorrow afternoon.
But they would have to meet City’s valuation
for the Aussie international which could be as
high as £15million.
Sunderland have been watching him while
there is also interest from Championship
winners Newcastle as well as Leicester and
Middlesbrough.
City boss Pep Guardiola could yet take
Mooy, 26, on the club’s pre-season tour of the
USA and would then decide once the tour
ends whether to keep, sell or again
send Mooy out on loan.

Our man in

know
MOURINHO
LOVING LIFE
IN THE CITY
JOSE MOURINHO is manager of
Manchester United – but he’ll continue
to be a city boy next season.
And that’s got nothing to do with
Manchester City, either!
It’s about Mourinho’s lifestyle as he
manages United and his decision to be
based in a city centre hotel, rather than
move out to the Cheshire stockbroker
belt.
The United boss (below) is planning to
continue to use the five-star Lowry Hotel
as his Manchester home.
He’s happy there and United have no
issue with his living arrangements as
long as the Old Trafford chief is
comfortable.
Jose’s regime is to be up and about
early in the morning and he is then driven
to United’s training complex at nearby
Carrington.
On a normal day, he then returns to
his hotel early in the evening, leaving
him conveniently situated for
Manchester’s city centre
restaurants for dinner.
The United manager, 54, is also
able to benefit from
Manchester’s
superb transport
links and can
quickly be at the
city’s Piccadilly
railway station where
there are three fast
trains an hour to take
him back to his family
home in London.
PAUL

GARY PALLISTER has
told Man United boss
Jose Mourinho he MUST
buy three new players
this summer AND keep
David De Gea.
The former Manchester
United defender reckons the
Special One will be deadly in
the transfer market – with top
targets Antoine Griezmann,
Romelu Lukaku and Monaco
star Tiemoue Bakayoko on the
Red Devils’ radar.
But persuading Spain’s No.1
De Gea to STAY at Old
Trafford has to be Mourinho’s
priority, Pallister says.
The ex-England ace, 51, said:
“I’m sure there will be at least
three players coming in. With
the injury to Zlatan, Jose will
be looking for support for
Marcus Rashford, especially
as the future of Wayne
Rooney (right) is
unclear. So we
need help in
the striker
department.
“Plus he’ll
possibly be
looking at another
creative player in
midfield and a
defender as well.
They are the three
key areas we need to
strengthen.
“There has been a lot of talk
about David De Gea.
“Let’s be straight, he is one
of the best goalkeepers in the
world. If he was to go, a lot of
fans would be sad to see him
leave.”
But they will be excited by
what’s coming in.
Monaco trio Bakayoko, Djibril
Sidibe and Benjamin Mendy
are on Mourinho’s shopping
list as are Everton powerhouse
Lukaku, £85million man
Griezmann and Benfica’s Victor
Lindelof, Nelson Semedo and
Ederson.
Pally said: “There is no doubt
Jose will be active in the
transfer market and I
don’t think there’ll be any
problem with him
chasing down any of the
targets he is after.
“He’s obviously got
good contacts and seems
to get what he wants most
of the time. He’ll be
probably a lot happier a year
■ by GARRY DOYLE
on with the squad he’ll have.”
And even happier following
Wednesday’s Europa League
triumph in Stockholm – which
guarantees Champions League
football for United next
season.
Plus there is Mourinho’s
remarkable record of winning
the domestic title in his second
year at ALL the clubs he has
been at.
Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan,
Real Madrid and Chelsea again
all ended up champions in
Mourinho’s second season in
charge.
And Pally can see the upward
trend continuing at Old
Trafford next season.
He said: “When you start
winning trophies, your
confidence grows.
“I know that from
experience.
“Under Sir Alex
Ferguson, we went
FA Cup, Cup
Winners’ Cup,
League Cup in
1990, 1991 and
1992 – all leading
towards the league
title success in
1993.
“Once we got a taste
for it, we wanted more.
“That’s the same with this
team.
“They’ve won the League
Cup and Europa League.
Capturing two trophies in
the one season makes it a
successful one.
“And
once
you
gain
confidence from that, you can
dream of winning even bigger
prizes.
“Jose has proven to be a top
manager – one of the very
best.
“And after a year assessing
things, and a year where Paul
Pogba, as a prime example,
has got used to the pace of the
Premier League, I have no
doubt that United will come
back into the new season with
all guns blazing.
“With Pogba, you can see
some of the fantastic things he
does. He’s as strong as an ox,
has got a great engine and is
capable of scoring great goals.
“So the future is bright.”

MATTEO DARMIAN is set to stay at

from former club Torino and Inter Milan.
United boss Jose Mourinho has been
pleased with Darmian’s contribution,
after the Italy full-back’s future appeared
to be in doubt.
Inter want him on loan but the reliable
defender has two years remaining on
his Old Trafford contract. And
Mourinho is happy to keep him, as he
covers for Antonio Valencia at right-back
and is also an option on the left.
The United boss showed his faith in
him by playing Darmian there in

BRADY GUNNS FOR CRITICS AS
ARSENAL legend Liam Brady reckons
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is getting a
raw deal from the club’s fans.
“Wenger Out” chants have provided the
soundtrack to yet another season at The
Emirates but Brady (right) who worked
with the Frenchman for nearly two
decades, is disgusted by the treatment his
former boss is getting.
The Irishman, 61, who lit up Highbury
during a glittering career with the club
■ by GARRY DOYLE
from 1973 to 1980, returned to Arsenal in
1996 and was director of the Arsenal
Youth Academy until 2014, working in
tandem with Wenger. So it’s no surprise
he supports the under-fire Frenchman.
Brady said: “Did you hear what Sir Alex
had to say about Arsene? How he has
kept his dignity amid the criticism, how he
has shown outstanding qualities handling
the whole situation. The key thing for me
was when Alex talked about long-termism
and stability. I totally agree with that.
“Arsene has done a tremendous job over
such a long period of time. He has worked
tirelessly and smartly for the club.
“Arsene has kept Arsenal competitive.

DAILY STAR SUNDAY, May 28, 2017
JUAN MATA claims Jose Mourinho
has changed from the manager he
knew at Chelsea.
The Manchester United midfelder insists
Mourinho IS adapting to the culture of the
Old Trafford club.
That might not have been too evident in
United’s 2-0 win against Ajax in the Europa
League Final last Wednesday.
By Mourinho’s own admission, it was a
“pragmatic” performance designed to secure
a crucial victory vital to his and United’s
future.
It was all about clinching Champions League
qualification and as is usually the case with
the United manager, it was a job successfully
done.
But Mata claims United have, can and will
play in the attacking style for which the club
became famous under Sir Matt Busby and Sir
Alex Ferguson.
The Spain star said: “He has changed. It is a
different environment, it is a different club
and squad.
“This club has always known that they play
one kind of football, which is all about
attacking and creating chances.
“We are doing that and he is happy with
performances. Everyone can see the players
are playing with more confidence.
“He is the same person, with almost the
same staff. But what has changed is the
environment.”
United fans have sung all season, to the
Herman’s Hermits hit I’m Into Something
Good, that: “Jose’s playing the way that United
should.”
And Mata, who insists he has a “good
relationship” with Mourinho and despite
being sold by him from Chelsea to United, is
confident the club’s supporters will be happy
with the style of play they’ll see on the pitch.
Mata, 29, added: “This win was smashing for
us. We went to Stockholm with a chance of

Champions League
and we’ve done it.
“We’ve brought
another trophy

have a dig at
Tottenham,
Manchester
C i t y a n d
Liverpool –
who all finished
above United
in the Premier
League – in claiming
his team had qualified for the
Champions League in the right way.
The United boss said: “We weren’t strong
enough to win the Premier League but we
were to win the Europa League.
“For me, the best way to qualify for the
Champions League is to win the Premier
League or the Europa League.
“So we have done it the right way. We prefer
this way to finishing fourth, third or second in
the Premier League.
“That’s because we go back to the Champions
League through winning a trophy.”
United legend and club ambassador Bryan
Robson, 60, said: “It was really important that
Manchester United won this trophy.
“Getting into the Champions League is so
important, because that’s where this club
should be.
“It will also help the manager go out and
attract really good players in the summer.”
And he added: “It’s also another European
trophy for the club.”

WENG SAYS ABUSE IS ‘A DISGRACE’
that missing out on it for one year merits
criticism. The number of points they got this
season exceeded what they got last year. But
last year they finished second.”
Wenger (left) described the criticism he has
faced at Arsenal this season as “a disgrace”
he will “never forget”.
The Frenchman, 67, has faced fierce
protests from fans calling for him to leave the
club he has led since 1996.
“I don’t mind criticism because we are in a
public job,” he told BBC Sport’s Football
Focus before yesterday’s FA Cup Final
against Chelsea at Wembley.
“I believe there’s a difference between being
criticised and being treated in a way that
human beings don’t deserve.”
He added: “The lack of respect from some
has been a disgrace and I will never accept
that. I will never forget it.
“The behaviour of some people during the
season, that is what hurts me most. It’s not
my person that is hurt but the impeccable
image of the club around the world. That kind
of behaviour does not reflect what Arsenal is.
“A strong club is a club that makes a
decision. It is wrong that in modern society it
is not a question of whether a decision is
right but whether it is popular.
“That has nothing to do with
competence. People with
responsibility have to make the
right decision.”

ARSENE WENGER was in seventh
heaven last night as he set a record
in the FA Cup.
The Arsenal boss won the trophy for
the seventh time, something no other
manager has achieved.
It was the Gunners who took the
lead through a controversial Alexis
Sanchez goal. Diego Costa equalised
for Chelsea but Aaron Ramsey headed
home the winner 11 minutes from time.
Arsenal’s 2-1 win at Wembley denied
Chelsea a Double and Wenger said:
“We showed strength, unity and
played spectacular football.
“I am very proud to have won this
trophy seven times.”
On his future, Wenger added: “I
have been very clear in saying the
board meeting on Tuesday will make
it clear. Do I want to stay? I have
been clear on that too.
“It’s up to the board to decide
whether I’m the right man. Do
I think I’m the right man? I do.
And it’s not down to this final. It
would be ridiculous if 20 years
depended on one game.”
