EXPERTS are encouraging all smokers to switch to vaping, even pregnant women. A US study into e-cigs in 2016 suggested vape fumes could harm a woman’s unborn child. But Prof Linda Bauld, from Stirling University, said: “There is no circumstance where a woman should be discouraged from vaping instead of smoking where the alternative is they continue to smoke.” However campaigners were against the move — or allowing vaping in hospitals. Joyce Robins, from Patient Concern, said: “It is a daft idea. I don’t think they should be setting aside spaces for vaping when there is no room for beds. “And with such uncertainty around the evidence, we should not be telling pregnant women to use them.” Public health officials claim the controversial move would help boost efforts to quit smoking. One Brit a minute is admitted to hospital due to cigarette use, with 79,000 in England killed annually. Public Health England said vaping was 200 times less likely to cause cancer than smoking. It also found no evidence passively inhaling fumes is a risk to those nearby. Officials now want vaping allowed inside and outside hospitals. PHE said in a report that NHS trusts should ensure “e-cigarettes are available for sale in hospital shops”. Martin Dockrell, tobacco control lead for PHE, added: “We would certainly encourage them to make at least some single occupancy rooms where people can vape.” The report was compiled by experts from King’s College London and the University of Stirling. Ann McNeill, professor of tobacco addiction at KCL, said only half of smokers know e-cigs are less harmful. email@example.com 79,000 smokers killed every year in England due to cigs CALL FOR PARDONS CAMPAIGNERS are demanding pardons for suffragettes who were jailed battling to get votes for women.

DECEMBER: LAA now says Downey’s defence is so strong there is only a slim chance of success. FEBRUARY 2018: LAA caves in. I want to thank every Sun reader for their support — VICTIM’S DAUGHTER SARAHJANE YOUNG lawyer Matthew Jury said: “We don’t know what has changed. “Perhaps the relentless stream of letters we sent to everyone, from the Minister for legal aid (no reply), to the Lord Chancellor (no reply), to the Prime Minister (no reply). “Perhaps it was the countless MPs and Peers who voiced their support and asked questions in Parliament (only to be fobbed off). “Perhaps it was the relentless pressure of the Hyde Park Justice Campaign, backed by The Sun. “Perhaps the Government had become aware the families were scheduled to meet the Shadow Justice Secretary and feared the opposition would get the jump on them.” The civil claim against Downey seeks tens of thousands of pounds in damages for personal injury, as well as aggravated and exemplary damages over the attack. Simon Tipper’s brother Mark Tipper, 57, said: said: “We’re getting closer to justice. “It’s a huge breakthrough and I can’t thank our lawyers and The Sun and its readers enough.” Sources yesterday said the families previous applications had failed to meet criteria for funding but new evidence that was submitted meant the threshold had now been met. firstname.lastname@example.org The Sun Says — Page Ten JUSTICE FIRST THE civil action is not about compensation but about justice and closure, said the families’ lawyers Jason McCue and Matthew Jury. They said some of the families also hope their campaign will persuade the authorities to look again at five other terrorist incidents Downey is linked to. The lawyers added: “Perhaps they’ll inspire other victims denied justice to come forward and take the fight to the terrorists. You can’t put a price on that and it’s the least the Government owes them. It must do more than offer tea and sympathy.” The lawyers said that despite routinely funding those accused of the most terrible crimes, the LAA refused the Hyde Park families five times. They added: “The first time we applied for legal aid, the agency told us to approach a veterans’ charity instead. “It was the equivalent of needing a triple bypass, only for the NHS to tell you to write to the British Heart Foundation for help.” 5 6 ............... Tuesday, February 6, 2018 Treasury bid block by No10 By TOM NEWTON DUNN A TREASURY compromise bid to end a raging Cabinet row over an EU free trade deal has been shot down by No10. Under pressure from Brexiteers, Downing Street dismissed the pitch — backed by Philip Hammond — to keep elements of the EU’s Customs Union for a few years after Brexit and its transition period. Under the officials’ plan, Britain would only fully leave the key Brussels institution once new trade deals are signed. That may take many years, leaving the UK suffering a drop in trade. A senior Treasury source said it meant proBrexit Cabinet ministers Boris Johnson and Liam Fox would eventually see “their great prize”. But Downing Street aides insisted the PM would not be going ahead with the plan.

It emerged yesterday two crunch Cabinet Brexit meetings this week will still not solve the dilemma, with the key decision kicked into next week at the earliest. Mr Barnier told a press conference at No 10: “Without the Customs Union and outside the Single Market, barriers to trade and goods and services are unavoidable. The time has come to make a choice.” Sitting beside him, Mr Davis insisted it was “perfectly clear what we want to do”. He added: “We’ve said we want a comprehensive free trade agreement, and with it a customs agreement. And to make as much trade as currently exists as frictionless as possible while still giving ourselves the opportunity to make free trade deals with the rest of the world.” Pro-EU Labour MP Heidi Alexander said: “Michel Barnier, like all of us, wants an end to the fudging, dodging and U-turning.” email@example.com The Sun Says — Page Ten Running for PM, Michael?

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 Sun THE SAYS Road to justice NONE of the excuses over IRA Hyde Park bomb suspect John Downey ever held water. Yet they kept coming. It “wasn’t in the public interest” to fund a private prosecution with Legal Aid. There was “no benefit”. Downey, a convicted IRA man, had a “strong” defence. And, most ridiculously, that the tens of thousands raised by a Sun appeal disqualified victims’ families from getting public money. Meanwhile officials spent a fortune defending jihadis. We are delighted the Legal Aid Agency has finally seen sense. That the families of the four massacred soldiers will get their moment in court. And that Downey will face justice after the shameful blunder that ended his criminal trial. It would not have happened but for this paper and our amazing readers. We know a good cause in the public interest when we see one. It is scandalous not one conviction stands over that terrible day in 1982. We hope justice will now at last be done. Hamm fisted CABINET Remainers will try any trick. The Chancellor’s latest effort deserved its short shrift from No10. Philip Hammond wants to keep some EU customs union rules until our new trade deals are ready to roll out. But that simply kicks the can down the road. He or a successor could then argue the new agreements weren’t significant enough to finally cut all ties. It’s a ruse, in other words, to prevent Brexit ever really happening. MPs must all get real. No reasonable interpretation of Brexit could keep us tied to Brussels’ rules and handicap a new independent trade policy. It is the worst imaginable outcome. To be a success, Brexit must be done in full. Remainers endlessly argue that Leavers never voted to leave the single market or customs union. What cobblers. Both are fundamental to the EU. What did “leaving” mean if not that? Naomi nails it NAOMI Campbell is dead right over the farcical ban on F1 grid girls. They’re models like me, she says. And they love what they do too. Quite right.

Many of us have had a good chuckle at the authoritarian antics of the blue-haired, nose-pierced offence-takers who have colonised Britain’s universities. We chortled as hypersensitive millennials at more than 20 unis forbade the playing of Robin Thicke’s song Blurred Lines. We mocked as some student unions cancelled fancy-dress parties out of terror someone might wear an offensive costume. Like the Cambridge University students who called off an Around The World In 80 Days party on the basis that it is “racist” to wear clothes from different cultures. We shook our heads as students banned tabloid papers or No Platformed “offensive” speakers, from Ukip politicians to critics of radical Islam like Maryam Namazie. Yet while these campus moralists might have provided us with much mirth, it is time we took them seriously. Because this joke isn’t funny any more. The carbuncle of censorship on our universities is a profound problem for 21st-century Britain. It is churning out a new generation of intolerant young adults and they could have a dire impact on public life and liberty. This week, the fourth annual Free Speech University Rankings were published — and they make for grim reading. Every year, the magazine I edit, spiked-online.com, analyses university speech codes and policies to see how free higher education is. The answer? Not free at all. This year’s rankings show that 94 per cent of universities restrict freedom of speech, through bans on certain speakers or speech codes that curtail “offensive” chatter. Time to stand up to stupid bans of the student Stasi BANNED rld In . . . ‘racist’ Around Wo 80 Days SHOUTED DOWN . . . ‘fascist’ MP Rees-Mogg is abused Lowest tactics of new moral army That leaves only six per cent of unis that do not restrict speech. This is a terrifying state of affairs. Universities are meant to be citadels of knowledge, places of thought-experimentation and open debate. No longer. Over the past three years, British universities have enforced 81 explicit bans, including on student groups deemed insufficiently PC. So last year, Balliol College at Oxford banned the Christian Union from its freshers’ fair on the basis its beliefs — in traditional marriage, for example — would be experienced by some students as a “micro-aggression”. This is one of the lowest tactics of the new moral army on campus — to define certain beliefs as “violence” and therefore deserving destruction. Forty-eight per cent of unis have religion policies that warn against “offending” faith groups. Forty-six per cent have transgender policies forbidding “transphobic” speech. Bear in mind that the term “transphobic” covers not only the verbal abuse of trans people — which we can all agree is awful — but also certain moral beliefs, such as that that there are only two sexes. You can now potentially be shunned from campus for committing the thought crime of thinking there are two genders rather than 71, as some PC warriors claim. The feminists Julie Bindel and Germaine Greer have both been hounded off campus simply for saying there are differences between HOUNDED OFF CAMPUS . . . feminist Germaine is men and women. Thirty-seven per cent of universities have No Platform policies which ban far-right people. But today, almost anyone can be defined as “far right”. Witness what happened to Conservative MP Jacob ReesMogg at the University of West England last week. A gang of masked middleclass “anti-fascists” stormed the lecture room in which he was addressing students and screamed “fascist” at him. These posh Stalinists used menace to try to silence an MP. This is the logical conclusion to the new campus censorship — where anyone who refuses to bow before the PC mob’s moral strictures can expect to be shut down. Young adults who believe they have the right to live in a “safe space”, to glide through life without encountering a disagreeable idea, will think nothing of using force to silence those who offend them. Such unstable and not welcome BANNED cklisted by unis . . . racy Thicke song bla narcissistic censorship is bad for universities — because it will chill debate — and society. Soon these stiffs will graduate and many will get big jobs in politics and the media. And they will bring with them their arrogant conviction that anyone who offends them deserves to be expelled from polite society. Before long, you won’t even have to visit a uni to experience the tyranny of the new PC — it will be everywhere. We must toughen up young people What can we do? How can we hold back the wave of censorship that is washing over campuses? We need to try to toughen up the young, to encourage them to see words and speech as things they should engage with rather than as threats to their psychic well-being. Last year, Jo Johnson, as Universities Minister, set up the Office for Students, which he said would put pressure on universities to respect freedom of speech and discourage, or even outlaw, No Platforming. This might yield interesting results. It could help a new intake of students to realise that words don’t actually wound them and being exposed to “controversial” speakers is not the end of the world. But we also need more students, academics and public figures to stand up to the Student Stasi. We need more people to defy their mad bans and to rebel against their edicts about what music, ideas and arguments may appear on campus. The student censors have got away with it for too long. The solution is nothing short of a liberal rebellion — bring back controversy to the academy and tough luck to those who can’t cope with it. Maybe uni isn’t for them. lBrendan O’Neill is editor of free speech magazine spiked-online.com. 1GM Tuesday, February 6, 2018 ............... FOR YOUR TRIES ONLY By DAN SALES Hit by car . . .

Booze game on BBC EXCLUSIVE by DAN SALES VIEWERS twigged as rugby pundit Brian Moore slipped words into his BBC1 commentary to let them play a Six Nations drinking game. Boozy fans have to take glugs when key words and phrases from a list posted on Twitter are mentioned. Ex-England ace Moore, 56, trotted out a string of them as Ireland beat France 15-13. Fans thought it was just chance — until he even managed to utter the bizarre jackpot word “covfefe”. The phrase was once tweeted by President Donald Trump by mistake and was deemed so unlikely to be heard that it meant viewers had to down their drinks in one. The Welsh fan who came up with the word list hailed it a “commentating masterclass”. Others who took to Twitter included one who joked: “Brian Moore clearly bored of this match.” A source confirmed: “He had seen the drinking game.” The words only came during the first half — suggesting the BBC also cottoned on and curbed his antics. dan.sales @the-sun.co.uk Joker . .

Researchers studied almost 200,000 traffic tickets issued by US cops in the state of Maryland over the past five years. They then matched the results with The Fast and the Furious opening weekends. Although ticket numbers did not rise, the speeds clocked were far higher than normal. Anupam Jena, of Harvard Medical School, said: “We can see a clear increase in the average speed. But there was not an increase in number. “It seems to take people already prone to driving fast and make them drive faster.” Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in 2013, starred in the movies with Vin Diesel.

It fears they could be left in debt if the cryptocurrency’s value continues to deflate. Cancer’s gland link THE ageing of the body’s defence system may play a larger role in causing cancer than previously thought, say researchers. Their findings may explain why men are more at risk of cancer. T cells from the thymus gland, which destroy cancer cells, decline as we age. But the gland in women shrinks slower. So the key to fighting cancers may lie in the immune system rather than genetic mutations. The study, led by University of Dundee, looked at two million cancer cases. Dr Thea Newman said: “If we’re right, it could be a new way to treat and prevent cancer.” 1GM Tuesday, February 6, 2018 ............... V T n o Ally Ross 13 firstname.lastname@example.org TIME TO EVICT BIG BROTHER SUMMONING up all the fake outrage at his disposal, Celebrity Big Brother’s Shane J huffed: “Ann Widdecombe’s morally conservative views have been impinging on housemates’ behaviour.” Which was true, they had and were the main reason why it was a relatively good series. Channel 5 actually booked someone famous who was prepared to stop the others behaving like just another bunch of drunken, C-list scumbags. Widdecombe was also the most entertaining contestant and, at the risk of pointing out the bleeding obvious, would have made a much more appropriate “year of the woman” winner than a bloke who merely dresses up as one. She has, after all, triumphed over real prejudice in her career, rather than the confected variety Shane J tries to trade off. Celebrity Big Brother wasn’t about to let that happen, though. This is no longer the funny, self-confident, unpredictable, maverick show that gave us leftfield winners like Jim Davidson and Gary Busey. It’s a needy, insecure, virtue-signalling enterprise that’s so past its sell-by-date it’s even got narrator Marcus Bentley ripping-off Iain Stirling’s Mr Sarky Trousers routine. In other words, Big Brother is now copying Love Island, which began life by copying Big Brother. Show’s over. Get rid. llll QUIZ show dim-bulbs of the week.

MUST “The next series include women,” others will demand. And Channel 4 will be dumb enough to bend to their will, one year. At which point, Ant Middleton, Foxy, Ollie and Mark “Billy” Billingham should thank them for their indulgence and hand in their armbands. For this would be the moment their contest sacrificed authenticity for political correctness — currently women are not allowed to serve in the SAS — and lost not only the viewers’ trust but the uncompromising tone of this Special Forces selection show which is the only place on telly where you can actually hear someone shout: “It’s your own fault, you f***ing idiot.” More to the point, why the hell would anyone want to try to fix Who Dares Wins when it isn’t broken anyway? It’s quite the opposite, in fact. A show without any significant production clangers. A genuine thrill and a surprise, every week, from the moment the first caption appears. “Day 9.” NINE?

It means, no sooner have you been broken by the story of recruit 13, Dan, whose wife was murdered in the most appalling circumstances, than you’re being scared witless by Ant and Billy’s demolition of Walter Mitty James, recruit seven, who’d lied about serving in the Parachute Regiment. That pair, and nearly everyone else, had disappeared by the second half of Sunday’s show, where two had emerged as the front-runners. One was recruit ten, Matt, with the boyband looks, who came as close as anyone to disarming the WDW’s fearsome interrogation team, with a surprise request during 18 savage hours of questioning. “I want to go to the toilet. “Is it OK if I p*** myself?” (Long pause and just a hint of a smile from shouty lookalikes THIS week’s £69 winner is Julian Lloyd-Webber and Lou Ferrigno’s definitive take on The Incredible Hulk.

How could you not want him to win, after that? Especially as his opponent was an outstanding but dead-eyed “anomaly” called Jonathan, a former insurance salesman, whose attitude to telling grieving widows their policy didn’t extend to flying their dead husband home from holiday left even Ant shocked. “I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it. It’s just a job.” “Just a f***ing job? You’ve got no empathy, no heart. Sleep on that.” No question who they table wanted to win then and you got the feeling they’d have kept the series going until they finally found a challenge where Matt could overcome his opponent. As luck would have it, though, he beat Jonathan in the first rope-dangling playoff, allowing Ant to declare: “Both of you have successfully passed.” If this decision jarred a little bit, for such an uncompromising show, it was forgotten and forgiven by the extraordinary scene that closed the series. The rains finally eased, a flash-flood finally brought the stunning African backdrop to full technicolour life and, as the team disappeared over the horizon, one of them found the most perfect way of summing up the previous five weeks. “Oh lads, f***ing outstanding.” llll OBSERVATION round.

Which, as about 50 per cent of readers will be able to confirm immediately, they are most definitely NOT. With nothing more exciting than a few arsey badgers for company, though, Martin and the other two presenters – Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan – have to do something to see themselves through the long, cold nights on this show. Innuendo is one coping strategy, surprising facts are another: “Foxes’ testicles double in size at this time of year.” And a third is giving the badgers celebrity names, like Marc Almond, who seemed to have a curious fondness for “anal rubbing”. The presenter really dicing with death and a #MeToo boycott, however, was Chris Packham, who paused but didn’t blink when he announced: “Scientists from Oxford, Sheffield and East Anglia University, in conjunction with the Netherlands Institute of Ecology, have been contrasting great tits in Holland and the UK . . . ” The current punishment for which is?

His show dogs were spared destruction orders by JPs in Blackburn.

Mark Aizlewood, 57, and Paul Sugrue, 56, were directors of a company claiming to offer apprenticeships at 80 pro clubs. The firm billed colleges, which claimed the money back through the public purse — but hundreds of its students did not exist. Ex-Wales international Aizlewood, of Newport, South Wales, and ex-Man City striker Sugrue, of Cardiff, were convicted of fraud yesterday at Southwark crown court.

THAT’S NUTS STICK IT TO ’EM ON YOUR BIKE FOOD ROW ENDS UP IN COURT ARGY BHAJI By ALEX WEST A CHEF threw chilli powder in the eyes of an Indian restaurant diner who complained about his starter. Kamrul Islam, 47, was enraged by David Evans and his wife telling a waiter the tandoori chicken was “rubbery”, a jury heard.

Kamrul Islam ‘Indian restaurant chef threw chilli in diner’s face’ whose daughter is West End singing star Sophie Evans, 24. Mr Evans, 47, then followed him back and is said to have told the chef: “You can’t speak to my wife like that — what are you doing?” He was left “doubled up in pain” as the chilli powder was hurled in his face. The pipe fitter was taken to hospital where medics flushed out his eyes with saline water. Prosecutor Stephen Donaghue said the waiter had fetched the chef after asking the dad and his college lecturer wife Michelle, 48, if they were happy with their food. The couple had both moaned that the starter at the Prince of Bengal curry house in Tony- pandy, South Wales, was “tough and rubbery”. Islam is said to have raged at them: “It’s f****** tandoori.” Mr Donaghue told the court: “He was clearly annoyed and upset that the complaint had been made at all.” The chef denies ABH. He claims he tried to be polite but ended up throwing the spice in self defence because he thought angry Mr Evans pursued him “with a view to violence”. He told cops the dad had “formed his hand into a fist as if to throw a punch” as he stood at the kitchen door.

FORMULA ONE HITS BACK University paper ban on the rise By DAN SALES ONE in ten universities now bans newspapers such as The Sun — with critics accusing the snowflake generation of rejecting free speech. A study found 55 per cent of 115 universities “actively censor speech” and 39 per cent “stifle speech via excessive regulation”. Just six per cent are truly free and open, according to data compiled by politics and culture magazine Spiked. Meanwhile Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, pictured, has revealed he turns to The Sun first in the morning. He told journalism students it “has its finger on the pulse of the British nation in a way that other papers don’t”. He then reads others including The Times, but does not bother with The Guardian.

Youngsters enjoy F1 thrills at Silverstone J N SN WFLAKE JUST when it looks like F1 is making progress by banning shamefully objectified grid girls, they ruin it all by replacing them with grid kids. How is the exploitation of child labour any better, I ask you? Now Naomi Campbell has joined Kylie among the women who have let down the sisterhood with her backing for trackside glamour.

Generation SPICE GIRLS TO BACK THE NEW CROP OF GIRL POWER STARS THE SPICE GIRLS reunion could launch a new record label – and a new generation of girl power. The legendary pop group want to give something back to new talent as part of their reunion, which I revealed last week. New music lover MEL C raised the idea of signing their own acts through a Spice music company at their first meeting in six years at GERI HORNER’s house on Friday. And all five members, including VICTORIA BECKHAM, MEL B and EMMA BUNTON, were keen on the idea. My Spice insider revealed: “The girls all brought their ideas to the table and that included Mel C raising the prospect of a Spice Girls record label. “It went down very well because they are all excited about backing up-and-coming talent, possibly even new girl bands. “This reunion is all about securing the Spice Girls legacy, and their own company could be one way to do that.” The meeting went so well that l Jordan Peele quit acting after being offered role of Poop in The assures fans she is fine after kidnap plot l Erykah Badu heading Nicola Fahey, Daniel Sperling, Howell Davies and Lucy Jones CROC NOT A DUN DEAL A SPOOF trailer for a new Crocodile Dundee movie during the Super Bowl ads caused almost as much excitement as the epic game. PAUL HOGAN, left, the original Mick Dundee, made a cameo with fellow Aussies MARGOT ROBBIE and CHRIS HEMSWORTH, as well as US comic DANNY McBRIDE, right, in the spot to promote Oz. But the ad was so popular there is now a fan campaign to get it made. I’d watch it, mate. NIPPLEGATE FEUD STILL NOT OVER FOR JANET JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and his dancers made sure on Sunday night there was no repeat of his 2004 Super Bowl performance, avoiding any sign of epic wardrobe malfunction. But I can reveal the US singer had been hoping to duet with JANET JACKSON, whose breast he exposed by tugging at her costume during the infamous set 14 years ago, right. But his request was rejected by the diva who’s still hurting from the fact Justin never tried to make amends for the original onstage flash. A source said: “She feels Justin has benefited from the scandal as her career suffered because of it. “When his team reached out to bring them back together at the Super Bowl, she considered it but pulled out when it became clear they only wanted her on stage in a bid to get better viewing figures.” Justin, who yesterday announced four UK dates for his Man of the Woods tour, took plenty of flak for his performance in Minnesota, main picture with a dancer and inset far right, despite it being nipple-free. He outraged fans of PRINCE by singing alongside a projection of the legend, despite the late star once having called the idea “the most demonic thing imaginable”. Things were better for P!NK, far left, who nailed the US National Anthem – and SYLVESTER STALLONE and AL PACINO were among fans thrilled, left, by the Philadelphia Eagles’ win over the New England Patriots. Meanwhile DANNY DEVITO made a joke of himself by dressing up as an M&M for an advert, left, and Justin also got grief as sound issues marred his set. Perhaps Janet was fiddling with the wires. dames Victoria is now open to a series of concerts, despite her initial commitment to the project being dependent on not singing a note. The band source added: “Initially the talk about this reunion was more about endorsements and TV shows. “But after the meeting there is growing confidence about a full-scale tour, at the end of this year or early next year. “Mel C still needs to be convinced but Victoria is on board for the moment. They’ve been in constant contact on WhatsApp and on the phone since the first meeting and are all genuinely excited.” I broke the news last week that the Spice Girls were to re-form with Victoria for £50million, and have stayed at the forefront of the story ever since. Emma returned to her Heart FM breakfast show yesterday and confirmed: “There’s lot of opportunities for us especially right now, needing a bit of girl power in the world.” Couldn’t agree more. l THE SPICE GIRLS are considered one of music’s most clean-cut bands. But fans couldn’t have avoided reading speculation online last week regarding a suspicious-looking substance on Geri phone in the background of their reunion picture, left. Just to clear things up, the girls weren’t having a drug-fuelled afternoon tea and scones. The “substance” was in fact an Apple earbud. They’re all about the music, see.

Recent research found a single date costs on average £127 — so that means singletons are pumping £5.89billion into the economy every year. But Lorraine Adams, at dating website Lovestruck.com, reckons you can still date stylishly on a budget. She says: “J-Lo said, ‘Love don’t cost a thing’ — and she’s right. A good date is about getting to know the person, not flashy surroundings. “And if you’re strapped for cash, it makes sense to spend less so you can see your new love more quickly again.” Here, we team up with Lorraine to show you how to date well on the cheap. Go on a breakfast date. It’s usually under £10 per person, even in the poshest restaurants. If it goes well, you can see your date again in the evening. Visit a free museum or gallery. These are always romantic venues and you can have fun spotting each other’s doppelgängers in the portraits or statues. Take a picnic to a local park or beauty spot. Al fresco romance is always exciting. Take a free taster class. Local venues often run courses such as salsa dancing or cocktail making. A group activity takes the pressure off facing each other and, if it goes well, you can go out afterwards. Look for vouchers and deals. This is not being cheap, it is being clever with your cash and that is an attractive trait. Set your date a fun challenge.

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 1GM CRISP TEST AS DORITOS GO FEMALE-FRIENDLY FAINT-HEARTED members of the fairer sex who fall into a swoon at the thought of eating corn chips are in luck – “lady-friendly” Doritos are on the way. They will be quieter to eat, cause less mess and the packet will fit in handbags. Indra Nooyi, boss of Doritos owner PepsiCo, said of women snackers: “They don’t like to crunch too loudly in public. And they don’t lick their fingers generously and they don’t like to pour the little broken pieces and the flavour into their mouth.” The Women’s Equality Party hit out at the firm for “tired stereotypes”. So how do women cope with all the macho crisps currently on the market? We asked our fair lady AMY JONES to test some favourites. Here she rates them out of five each for discreetness of crunch, handbagsuitability and how few crumbs they left on her white gloves, giving each an overall score for ladylikeness out of 15. REFINED . . . Sun lady Amy rates crisps for their decorum – and to see if they fit her bag Bag lady 8 15 Kettle Chips, Sea Salt & Balsamic (40g, 84p) Crunch test: Look elegant and the sound is too, at an ear-pleasing 64.6 decibels. 4 Glove test: Despite plain look a tinge of colour is left on my favourite gloves. 3 Handbag test: My weak lady fingers struggle to plunge these crisps in their plump, air-filled pack into my handbag. 1 Walkers, Ready Salted (32.5g, 68p) Crunch test: What a din! They may be thin but at 70.6 decibels they are noisier than they look. 2 Glove test: My gloves are still splendidly white. These leave barely a crumb. 5 Handbag test: They fit at a squeeze, but there is room for nothing else and a gentlewoman needs more than just crisps in her bag. 5 9 15 12 15 Hula Hoops, Big Hoops BBQ Beef (50g, 89p) Crunch test: Too loud to eat in company, but a crunch of 71 decibels makes them an acceptable solo snack. 3 Glove test: How fun – they fit over my dainty lady hands! Leave only merest tinge of yellow. 4 Handbag test: Just about fit but it’s an inelegant process. 2 5 15 Frazzles, Crispy Bacon (18g, £1.05 for an eight-pack) Crunch test: My delicate lady ears! These crunch at a beastly 79.2 decibels. 0 Glove test: My gleaming gloves are left a shocking lemon yellow. 1 Handbag test: They fit nicely – which is their only redeeming quality. 4 Doritos, Original (55g, 89p) Crunch test: At 60.9 decibels these are most pleasing to mine ears and the quietest of the bunch. 4 Glove test: My dainty gloves are stained a devilish yellow, but it’s nothing the maid won’t be able to scrub orf. 3 Handbag test: Rather a struggle to fit them in. There is barely any room for my hat pin. 3 9 15 3 15 Wotsits, Really Cheesy (36g, 84p) Crunch test: Fie! The shape alone is enough to offend my delicate sensibilities. And the crunch is a whopping 72 decibels. 3 Glove test: My mitts are stained a vivid orange. One would never find oneself a man with such hideous hands. 0 Handbag test: I can’t close the clasp. 0 Mini Cheddars, Original (25g, 84p) Crunch test: The hushed sound reminds me of a powder compact gently shutting. At a mere 64.6 decibels, these are suitably lady-friendly. 4 Glove test: Gloves are left clean and crumb-free – bliss. 5 Handbag test: The crisps fit easily into my bag, leaving plenty of room for my make-up. 5 10 15 Quavers, Cheese 34g, 84p Crunch test: At 65.7 decibels these have a perfectly polite crunch. 4 Glove test: Surprisingly little colour is left on my gloves but the pong will hang around all day. No lady wants to smell like cheddar. 3 Handbag test: Too big. I struggle to do up clasp on my bag. Totally unsuitable. 2 7 15 Monster Munch, Pickled Onion (40g, 84p) Crunch test: At 68 decibels the crunch is mildly monstrous. As we all know, a lady should be seen and not heard. 3 Glove test: They leave no colour, but rather a lot of crumbly residue. 3 Handbag test: Dearie me. The garish purple packet pokes out the sides of my bag. Most unbecoming. 1 7 15 McCoy’s, Flame Grilled Steak 47.5g, 84p Crunch test: Despite their intimidating manly ridges, they come in at a well-mannered 68.3 decibels. 4 Glove test: Thumbs take on a nasty shade of yellow. Unbecoming. 2 Handbag test: Clearly designed for gentlemen, these crisps will not fit in a tiny lady bag. 1 12 15 Agony . . . Jack Dunn A&E sent dying lad off with laxatives By THEA JACOBS A BOY of 17 in agony with stomach pain and struggling to breathe died after being sent home from A&E with laxatives. Jack Dunn was told he had constipation. In fact, he had deadly ketoacidosis which causes a build up of acidity in the blood. Dad Kieron found the “healthy and fit” student dead in bed next day. He said: “It was the worst moment of my life. “I believe Jack would be alive if simple tests had been carried out.” Kieron, of Porth, South Wales, says a doctor at Royal Glamorgan Hospital admitted feeling “baffled”. But the dad added: “We trusted them. “When Jack struggled to breathe the doctor thought it was anxiety. But it was his organs closing down.” The local health board declined to comment. Clock tee cock-up RACE organisers admitted making a balls-up by giving 10k runners a T-shirt with the shape of a willy on the front. The dark blue tee had the black outline of Dewsbury Town Hall and clock tower. But Adrian Harker, 38, who got his T-shirt after finishing Sunday’s run in Dewsbury, West Yorks, said: “It’s not the town hall at all — it’s a bloody c*** and balls, man.” Other runners also griped it looked rude on social media. Race organiser Bernard Disken joked: “We are always anxious to raise the profile of the race.” Slippery soap end 14 15 Squares, Salt & Vinegar (40g, 84p) Crunch test: The perfect size for my itsy-bitsy lady mouth and their crunch is a mere whisper at 62.5 decibels. 5 Glove test: No one would know you had snacked. They leave no trace. 5 Handbag test: I look most ungainly shoving these crisps in my bag. Their generous portion size lets them down. 2 A COMPANY is selling what it claims is the first non-slip soap. Tetra Soap has a unique shape with four prongs that makes it easy to grip when wet. Designer Mike Mak, 34, said: “Soap has been a day-to-day product throughout our 5,000-year human history. “But Tetra Soap is easy to grab even wet and will maintain its unique shape — so it will be easy to hold until the very end.” The £16 soap comes with a felt coaster.

A technician said she would have to cough up £685 to fix a faulty compressor on her Citroen C1. But when her taxi driver dad Dean got a second opinion from another garage in Brighton, he was told the car does not even have air-con. Stevie said: “I have no knowledge of cars, so I just trusted that they’d got it right when they said I needed to pay to get the air conditioning fixed. “I was so upset when I heard. I don’t have that kind of money. I’m a By JOHN LUCAS student with a part-time job at Topshop, so that would have been a quarter of my monthly wage.” Dean, 45, said: “I took the rest of the day off to come and pick her up because she was in a right state. “She thought her car was kaput.” Kwik Fit reimbursed Stevie the £50 test fee and apologised, saying it was a “genuine mistake”. A spokesman said: “We made a misdiagnosis which led to a wrong quote being given. Unfortunately it was not picked up when we got a price for the part from our supplier. “It would usually be flagged if a vehicle doesn’t require the part.” He added: “We would have quickly seen it was not an air--con issue and provided the right advice.” Quote . . .

Colin Firth as tragic Donald FLAPPY HOUR Pub staff took two hours to catch a pigeon that flew into the Yates in Solihull, West Mids. h in The Mercy TENSE TIMES . . . for Firt 1GM Tuesday, February 6, 2018 ............... OF O DISGRACED ROUND-WORLD YACHTSMAN By GRANT ROLLINGS FOR seven months and two days, the four young children of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst awaited the return of their father from the high seas. SAIL OF THE CENTURY . . . Donald on his plywood trimaran The Devon inventor made headlines breaking speed records as he piloted his plywood boat in a round-theworld race, using self-designed navigational aids. He seemed set to win a £5,000 prize — worth £85,000 today — for posting the fastest solo time, plus global publicity for his gadgets. But for the final month there was radio silence from his leaky vessel, the Teignmouth Electron. It was found adrift in the South Atlantic on July 10, 1969, with nobody aboard. Donald’s log books revealed he had lied about his position in the race — before apparently taking his own life. A new film called The Mercy, starring Colin Firth as the sailor and Rachel Weisz as his wife Clare, explores what drove Donald to such desperation. Donald’s family and the actor who plays him believe he never intended to trick his way to the prize and just wanted to avoid financial ruin. Colin, talking about the consequences of Donald caling off the race, said: “We are in no position to judge. The conditions of stopping were so brutal. “That was the kind of pressure, the solitude and everything you’re up against. I don’t think anyone can possibly understand that.” Donald had mortgaged his house and his struggling business making his “Navicator” positioning device to get the boat built. He faced losing everything if he quit the race early. Inspired by Sir Francis Chichester’s 226-day solo circumnavigation of the globe in 1966 — when he stopped once — The Sunday Times challenged sailors two years later to follow his 27,000-mile route without a single stop. He faced risking his life or financial ruin Whoever set the fastest time would get a trophy and the £5,000. Donald, a rookie of 35, was one of nine sailors who took on the challenge. Racing to set off before the contest’s cut-off date of October 31, 1968, he did not have time to make the boat’s hatches watertight or make the self-steering gear secure. Before heading into the choppy Atlantic from Teignmouth, Devon, he wept with fear. His widow, now 85, recalled: “I held him in my arms and comforted him. Neither of us slept at all. “To Donald, taking care of the family was everything and he was desperately worried.” He faced a terrible choice — risking his life in an unseaworthy boat or suffering financial ruin. He gambled on fixing the 41ft trimaran boat on the way but left crucial tools on the quayside. Prophetically, as he cast off he whispered to his eight-year-old son Simon: “Look after your mother.” Having boasted that his trimaran could manage 220 nautical miles a day, he averaged just 130. In those days, before satellite tracking, navigation relied on sextants and the position of the stars. Communication was via crackling, delayed radio and Morse code. Nobody but Donald knew his true position. In a reckless moment of what must have been terrible desperation, Donald, violently seasick, claimed via radio to have covered an incredible 243 miles in a day on December 10. With the amateur suddenly a serious contender, a media frenzy exploded back home. Five competitors had been forced to retire, leaving Robin KnoxJohnston, Bernard Moitessier and Nigel Tetley battling Donald — and the elements. At Christmas, Donald GRIEF . . . his widow Clare. Left, Clare at the time of the voyage with children James, Rachel, Simon and Roger 6They found boat . . . he isn’t on it 7 ‘Hero’ sailor who lied to world and got in too deep claimed to be sailing past Cape Town in South Africa. In fact he was passing Brazil. He then cut off all contact for three months. Chichester grew suspicious, telling The Sunday Times the winds were not strong enough for Donald to post those times. But his warning was ignored. After repairing his boat on shore in South America — against the contest’s rules — Donald announced on April 10, 1969, he was heading home, his journey almost complete. In late April Knox-Johnston, who had started earlier, completed the course. Moitessier pulled out of the race, leaving Tetley and Donald to battle to beat Knox-Johnston’s time. Then Tetley sank while racing through a storm in a bid to stay ahead of Donald. Sir Robin, now 78, who was knighted for his feat, told The Sun: “The moment Tetley sank, Donald knew his logs would be checked. If he had come in third, he would probably have got away with it.” Knowing his deception would be exposed on his return, Donald appears to have cracked under the pressure. He wrote 25,000 words including rambling passages about becoming a “cosmic being”. He signed off his log on July 1 with: “I have no need to prolong the game” and: “It is finished — it is finished. IT IS THE MERCY. The truth has been revealed.” Nine days later, the unmanned Teignmouth Electron was discovered. Simon Crowhurst, now 57, said: “My memory was two nuns coming down the drive and speaking to my mother and my mother taking us to the bedroom I shared with my brother Roger. She sat us down on the bed and said, ‘The boat’s been found — and he’s not on it’. Then she broke down in tears.” It is unclear what exactly happened to Donald. It is PAIN . . . Rachel Weisz as Clare thought he took his own life but he may have been swept into the sea in an accident. Sir Robin feels sure it was deliberate, saying: “If you look at the logs, this is an absolute tragedy. The pressure was too much for him. “Right from the beginning he was under pressure, with his boat not being up to scratch, then being faced with the Southern Ocean, which will test any man, I can tell you. I suddenly saw this big (wave) coming, probably 80 or 90ft, curling at the top and breaking. “I thought, ‘I haven’t got time to get below’, so I climbed up the decking to get out of the way. The boat disappeared underneath me. We call them watery Himalayas.” Though he had never heard of his rival before the race, he donated his prize to Donald’s widow. Sir Robin, now chairman of sailing adventure firm Clipper Ventures, wanted to keep Donald’s deceit secret. He said: “My view was, ‘We have to look after the family. “There are four kids there — the eldest is 12. What’s is like to go to school and have children chanting ‘your daddy killed himself’? “I wanted it hushed up. A lot of us looked at it and said, ‘Poor bastard’.” But the log books were released after the inevitable investigation into Donald’s death. His family wish Donald’s ordeals could be forgotten. Daughter Rachel Weber, 55, who turned six while Donald was at sea, told The Sun: “It is a disturbing experience to see the death of a loved member of a family portrayed on screen. The Mercy tells the story of events that affected our family deeply. If it were up to us, no feature film would have been made.” But she praised the movie for its “empathy” and Knox-Johnston understands why the winner was not the enduring story of the race. He concluded: “The story is about Crowhurst. It is a story that no one could believe.” l The Mercy is in cinemas on Friday. 29 30 ...............

The BBC has commissioned another run of the dark comedy from the twisted minds of League of Gentlemen stars Reece and STEVE PEMBERTON. Just last Tuesday Reece panicked devotees when he tweeted: “Last episode next week and that’s that.” But in a statement yesterday he and Steve, above, said: “Having tried and failed to convince the BBC to produce a full Cheese & Crackers series (or at the very least a Summertime Special), we have reluctantly agreed to do another series of Inside No9. “We will once again attempt to trick, tickle and terrify you – but not necessarily all at once. Unless there’s a twist. Which there won’t be. Or will there? “Huge thanks to BBC Comedy and BBC Studios for their continued support, and to our loyal fans.” Sounds confusing to me. bi bit helped SA ARA AALTO ratings X Factor Finlandre than surge to mo debut as 1.1million on her y night. a judge on SundaFinland Considering tion of only has a popula, that’s around 5.5millioning for eth certainly som .

Twitter: @danwootton MY TEAM: Andy Halls, Hannah Hope, Rod McPhee and Benjy Potter Harry Hill to win Bake Off? Only one way to find out...BUNFIGHT! LAURA’S SURVIVAL INSTINCT LAURA WHITMORE isn’t shivering like the rest of us. The host, right, ditched the chilly UK for South Africa and ITV2’s sun-soaked new show Survival Of The Fittest. Teams will take on mental and physical challenges in a battle of the sexes. EastEnders actor DANNY DYER will be keeping a close on things as daughter DANI has signed up. She said: “Dad told me not to do anything silly.” Hopefully the show will make February sizzle. HIS Tea Time show saw him welcome guests to a spoof kitchen to knock up wacky dishes, but now it’s time for HARRY HILL to make a showstopper of his own. I can reveal the TV funnyman has signed up for The Great British Bake Off celebrity special, part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer series. The comic will join the likes of Desperate Housewives actress TERI HATCHER, who I told last week had agreed to take part. He will also do battle with Scottish Tory leader RUTH DAVIDSON, Made In Chelsea’s JAMIE LAING and KATE MOSS’s sister LOTTIE in the series expected to screen next month. A TV source said: “Channel 4 are over the moon. “He’ll bring a really funny side to the show, and producers hope he will bounce off NOEL FIELDING and hosts SANDI TOKSVIG. “He also knows judge PAUL HOLLYWOOD so, hopefully, their chemistry will come across well. “He’s been a big fan of the show for some time so jumped at the chance to take part, plus it’s for a good cause.” However Harry, real name Matthew Keith Hall, has an ulterior motive for wanting to take part in the first celebrity edition of the show since it moved channel from the BBC. When I let him take over my Bizarre TV column in 2016 he said he planned on following up on his X Factor musical I Can’t Sing! with “a Bake Off musical”. He just needs to find something to rhyme with soggy bottom. COLE ‘SEETHING’ OVER SHOW AXE HE has a reputation for speaking his mind, but axed Strictly dancer BRENDAN COLE has had surprisingly little to say about his former employers at the BBC. And I’m told the reason the New Zealander, right, is biting his tongue is because he’s convinced that show bosses will do a U-turn on their decision to drop him after 14 years. But while Brendan has been publicly silent since his departure was made known last week, I can reveal he has been privately scathing about the show’s producers. A telly source said: “Brendan has refused to criticise the BBC publicly over its move to sack him as he’s certain he will be asked to return to the show because he is a big personality. “But behind the scenes his attitude towards the corporation is different. He’s seething that his contract hasn’t been renewed. “He’s trying to give the impression that he’s not bitter, but deep down he is spitting feathers. “He’s slagging the Beeb off to anyone who will listen in private.” It’s exactly that sort of behaviour that cost you your job in the first place, Brendan. l IF BILL ROACHE gets fed up on Corrie, he’d fit right in on Doctor Who. The 85-year-old, right – who has played Ken Barlow since Corrie began in 1960 – reckons he’s defying the ageing process using the power of his mind. He told the Radio Times: “Age has no ailments attached to it – all your cells renew themselves equally all the time. The body was designed to go on for ever.” Sounds like someone’s had too many strong ales in the Rovers. COMIC . .

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 1GM dear deidre Head to thesun.co.uk/deardeidre to read more readers’ letters. To find how my problem page works, see thesun.co.uk/deardeidrefaqs Ex’s brother is my baby’s dad Dear Deidre I AM having a baby but the father is my ex’s brother. We are madly in love but he cannot leave his wife and three kids. I thought I could not have kids so it is a major shock to discover I am pregnant and I don’t know what to do. I am 27 and he’s 33. I split from my ex two years ago but even then I knew it was his brother I really wanted. He is the most handsome guy I have ever met plus he’s funny, kind and caring. When I was with my ex I got on well with his brother’s wife so even after me and my ex split up she still invited me over to theirs. At a party a few months later I got chatting to her husband. He asked me to come upstairs to see the bedroom he’d just decorated and where he’d installed new wardrobes. I was gushing about how amazing it all looked when he took a step forwards and before I knew what was happening we started kissing. He said he’s always fancied me. Nothing happened that topic4today AROUND 85,000 women are raped in England and Wales every year, with the attacker likely to be known to the victim. It leaves emotional scars for years, if not life. Email me for a copy of my Have You Been Raped? e-leaflet, which explains available support. firstname.lastname@example.org night but he texted me the next morning and we ended up having sex in his car. It was amazing and our affair has been ongoing ever since. We meet whenever he can get away and I always make myself available as I live for the moments I can be with him. His middle child, a seven-yearold boy, has cerebral palsy so life is not easy for him and his wife and he’s a great dad. I know the score and I would never ask him to leave them. We never use contraception as I saw no need. I tried for a baby for a few years in my early twenties. It didn’t happen so I convinced myself I couldn’t have kids. There’s no doubt though. I did two pregnancy tests because I could not believe the result. I know this situation is morally wrong but I love him so much. Now what do I do? 0 DEIDRE SAYS: I agree this is a very difficult dilemma and I can’t make the decision for you but it’s inevitably going to lead to emotional pain and hurt. Have you told him you’re pregnant? Have you really looked at how you feel about this pregnancy? I understand it feels very special if you believed you couldn’t have children but the reality is you may end up as a lone parent if you go ahead. Are you up for that? You will face a lot of criticism from your ex and your lover’s family too. I can’t help but feel sorry for your lover’s wife. Caring for her son must be so demanding and maybe that is partly what your lover has been escaping from. My leaflet on Unplanned Pregnancy will help you think this through and explains where to get help to talk over all the implications. Dear Deidre I AM sick and tired of disappointing my wife because I cannot last any length of time when we have sex. I am 36 and find my problem embarrassing. I suffered depression a few years ago and totally lost my sex drive. But after a long struggle I have stopped the medication prescribed for my depression and feel better in myself. My wife is 35 and has been amazing throughout but now I just want this part of my life to Dear Deidre MY ex and I split up months ago but it still hurts that he has posted pictures on Facebook of him with another woman at a family wedding. We are both 26 and were together for two years before our break-up four months ago. He asked me to go to this wedding with him. I said no, as we’d officially split but he told me – and keeps telling me – he still has feelings for me. That’s completely different from his Facebook messages be back to normal, too. I get so frustrated with myself. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: You have done brilliantly to recover so beware of focusing on this one negative. Enjoy sharing intimacy, emotional and physical, with your wife and don’t be obsessed with lengthy intercourse. There are lots of ways to satisfy each other and the less you fret the better it is likely to be. My e-leaflet Want To Last Longer? explains self-help sex therapy. about being so happy with this other woman. I no longer have feelings for him so why do his mixed messages disturb me so much? Should I block him? 0 DEIDRE SAYS: Even when we are sure a relationship is best over, we can still hanker for the good bits. Your ex is, at best, being immature in trying to hang on to you as well as enjoy his new relationship. Tell him to stop or you will have to block him. Do it if he doesn’t get the message.

Or follow me on Twitter: @deardeidre I AM in a relationship with an older woman but feel it is hopeless as my mother would never allow us to have a future together. I am a guy of 24 and have gone out with girls my own age, but all the women I have fallen in love with have been in their late thirties, forties or older. My current girlfriend is 44. We meet at least once a week and the sex is brilliant. I have my own place so can do what I like but I come from an Asian family and they have no idea about my girlfriend’s age. She is wonderful but Mum would never accept us. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: There will be a reason why you are always attracted to older women. Is it simply rebellion against your family, or are you scared of commitment so it feels safer to fall for someone who is unlikely to have kids with you? I understand the pressures but if you believe she’s the one you won’t be happy unless you stand up to any family opposition. You can find understanding at asianfamilycounselling.org (0208 813 9714).

We were together for six months but broke up for four months. In that time he met this girl. I was gutted. Then he called to say she’d dumped him. We have got back together but I am insanely jealous and hate that someone else got so close to him. I want everything to be perfect. I care too much about what other people think and even what this girl thinks. I can’t get it into my head that we were apart when it happened. I keep thinking I can’t be the girl for him. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: He turned back to you when this other girl dumped him so it’s not surprising you find the thought of her threatening. It’s up to your boyfriend to make it clear that you are the only girl for him but he’s saying she was the love of his life. That is so insensitive and cruel, he doesn’t deserve you. Tell him that either he shows proper appreciation of you or you’ll dump him too. l I’M answering your problem calls live on ITV’s This Morning today from 10.30.

Emmeline Pankhurst’s female army wore purple for loyalty and dignity, white for purity and green for hope as they campaigned for equality. But there are other women, and men, who have changed our lives through fashion. Ditching corsets for bras; swapping full-length skirts for minis; several bold style Edited by JOELY CHILCOTT changes have helped liberate us over the years. Here, CLEMMIE FIELDSEND looks at the dress choices that bettered our lives and wardrobes. ’BOT YOU’LL BE SEEING IN 2118 AGELESS women, cloned kids and robots at the photocopier. It may sound like a scene out of a Hollywood sci-fi movie. But 100 years from now, it could be the reality. Here, futurist Dr Frank Shaw, from the Centre for Future Studies, explains how things will look for women in 2118. AGELESS ERA In 1918 a woman’s life expectancy was around 60 years, today it’s 83. By 2118, new technology and gene therapy could mean immortality. Researchers are unlocking the mysteries of ageing – and getting closer to turning back the clock. Forget cosmetic surgery and anti-ageing creams. Genes will be manipulated so women don’t age at all. ANDROID WIFE Housewives will no longer exist. The dirty work will be undertaken by humanoid robots who will clean windows, do the laundry and make home repairs. The 2118 smart home will be all about quality of life, not an overworked wife. WORK IT, OR NOT Future work will be focused around making complex decisions which require human ingenuity. It will be a question of how to be human in a world run by robots. Computers will eventually be able to replicate creative tasks and learn to create music and art. WOMEN’S LIB SWIMWEAR IN 1907, sassy Annette Kellerman was arrested for wearing a form-fitting one-piece swimsuit on a beach in Boston, US. Despite the intitial furore, the swimmer’s rejection of the traditional ankle-grazing swim dress led to the arrival of more comfortable beachwear for women. Six years on, Carl Jantzen, who owned a knitting company in the States, invented the first two-piece swimwear, a closefitting costume with shorts and a short-sleeve top. Other variations followed, top right. Then in 1946 Frenchman Louis Reard changed things for ever by creating a two-piece number exposing the midriff – a design which he named the bikini. LINGERIE During the Twenties, women Women will have smashed through the glass ceiling long before 2118. Gender equality will have been established. By 2118, women will have prominent, influential roles throughout society. They will have the skills and attributes that will be crucial to future commercial success. SEX-BOT It is likely that dating and sex with androids and gynoids – male and female robots – will become commonplace. We won’t be able to tell them apart from humans. A robot that works in the same office will understand flirting and humour. Women won’t need men for reproduction and will be routinely impregnated by artificial insemination instead. FAMILY CLONE-IT If human cloning is accepted, this could lead to offspring being copied from a parent, a friend or even a celebrity. In 100 years, children will interact with surrogate artificial intelligence (AI) parents in a number of ways. They will be supervised, taught how to do maths and entertained by robots. Imagine a family connected via mind-to-mind communication, capable of communicating, sensing, and using each other’s knowledge, skills and language. Mum really will know what you’re thinking. had tired of restricting corsets and the Cadole company in Paris developed the “breast girdle”. During the Thirties, knickers and bras became softer and were made of elasticised fabrics to make underwear feel like a second skin. Over the following decades, lingerie, centre right, became one of fashion’s most lucrative areas, with the average woman buying 207 bras in her lifetime. TROUSERS Puerto Rican Luisa Capetillo was arrested in 1919 for daring to be different. Her crime? Being the first woman to wear trousers in public. During the Twenties and Thirties, women began to wear trousers as leisurewear, thanks to Hollywood sirens such as Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn, who were often seen in strides. During World War Two, with rationing of clothes, women started wearing men’s trousers while they were away. As these pairs wore out after the war, women wanted replacements and it was then that female trousers really took off. fashion for ever. Skirts had been getting shorter since the Fifties, but when customers kept demanding higher hemlines, Mary came up with the revealing miniskirt and minidress, below left. She said; “They are curiously feminine, but their femininity lies in their attitude rather than their appearance.” Thanks to Mary, our knees are free and our hems our higher. WRAP DRESS Diane von Furstenberg, now a fashion powerhouse, pioneered the wrap dress in 1974. It was seen as a symbol of women’s liberation due to its flattering shape — designed to show off women’s curves to the max. And with its simple tie at the waist, it could be slipped off without a fuss. MINI SKIRT Diane famously The Swinging Sixties saw London-based said: “Well, if you’re Mary Quant design a trying to slip out without waking a garment that sleeping man, zips would are a nightmare.” change women’s SUIT The trouser suit was a staple of fashion rails in the Eighties as women embraced a looser fit with strong shoulders. Wearing a suit was some women’s way of being taken seriously in the world of business. Climbing the ladder meant looking the part too. But thanks to those ladies, the power suit is no longer synonymous with men but is immediately linked to women. And if Meghan Markle is wearing one, then we certainly cannot fault it. BOB HAIR This ’do may just be another style option to most, but its origin shows it is much more than that. The early Twenties saw flapper girls and actresses, such as Colleen Moore, bottom left, opt for the look, with many seeing it as a symbol of female liberation. Flapper Ellen Welles Page said: “I consider getting rid of our long hair one of the many little shackles that women have cast aside in their passage to freedom. Whatever helps with their emancipation, however small it may be, is worthwhile.” It was a big step for women and is one of the most iconic looks of all time. So next time you go to a hairdresser’s and ask for a bob, strut your stuff as you walk out. SUNTANS We know Coco Chanel for all she gave us in fashion, — but she also brought us the suntan. While on holiday in the Twenties, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel caught the sun, which at the time was a faux-pas because being tanned was seen as a sign of being poor. But onlookers thought the sun-kissed glow looked good on her and they wanted in on the golden look. Tans quickly became a sign of wealth and beauty. So not only can we thank her for label Chanel, we can also thank her for fake tan. Who knew? FUTURISTIC FASHION 3D printing will be used to adapt the structure of clothes so they can be more tightly woven at one point, and more open at another. Clothes will maintain the right temperature in response to the environment, be used to charge batteries on mobile phones and send messages to loved ones. HEALTH ADVANCES Alzheimer’s is the leading cause of death among British women but by 2118 we will have found a cure. Children will be bred to order. Mothers’ eggs will be artificially fertilised to create babies that grow in bottles. They will not be born, but decanted. Sex will be for pleasure only. 35 YEARS OF TODAY we see how style has helped women shape the century and what lies ahead.

MyBody by Myleene is a 12-week programme costing £49.95 that comes with an exercise DVD, wallplanner and sandbell weight. It focuses on toning, fat-burning and core strength. The mum of two, who turns 40 in April, says: “I’ve kept up my exercise my whole life. “But I’m not talking excessive behaviour — these days you are made to feel like you either have to be a ‘gym bunny’ or on the sofa with your remote control, but you can have a balance.” ‘Incredibly in love’ Myleene has also found a new balance and peace in her personal life. She is living happily with PR-man boyfriend Simon Motson, 44, after a bitter split from her ex-husband Graham Quinn — the father of her two daughters — four years ago. The former I’m A Celebrity star says: “Turning 40, I don’t think I could have planned for where I wanted to be at this time in my life. “I would never have put this together. I’d take the rough with the smooth because if I hadn’t had the rough I’d never be able to appreciate how amazing love is, how amazing I feel now. “I feel really proud where I am in my life, I’m incredibly in love. I do believe if I hadn’t been through those experiences, I’d like to think I’d still be grateful. But if I’m being really honest, would I have been? “Probably not. Now I know who I am and I know I am so happy. I’m going to own every year, I don’t want to go backwards, I don’t want to be 21. “I’m more confident and content now than I ever have been. I’m going to own 40.” Following the exercises from her workout programme that Myleene shared in yesterday’s Fabulous, on the right she reveals more of her top moves and fitness tips. mix the eggs with the Greek-style natural yoghurt, seasoning with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into the pan and continue cooking over a high heat until sizzling and bubbling. Transfer the pan to the grill and cook until it is golden and the egg has set. Serve immediately with hot buttered toast. l Recipe from Rachel’s Organic. WIN YOUR fave false eyelash firm Eylure is offering 25 lucky winners five pairs of its fabulously fluttery lashes.

It will help strengthen and tone leg muscles in particular. REVERSE LUNGE: Start with feet hip-distance apart, holding the sandbell close to the body, elbows bent. Keeping your chest up, step back with one leg and bring your heel off the floor to lower your knee toward the ground. As you do this, straighten your arms to bring the sandbell weight directly out in front of you. Push through the front foot, to return to start position. Then repeat exercise on other leg. SIDE LUNGE: Start with feet hip-distance apart, holding the sandbell close to the body, elbows bent. Take a step to the side, keeping toes pointed forward and bend at the knee, pushing hips back, keeping chest up and sandbell held close to your body. Hold at the bottom for one second then push back off the foot in the side lunge and return to the start. Repeat on the same leg for the entire set before g g changing. f See the vide’so o Myleene workout at / thesun.co.uk fabulous Plank to side plank Boxing jab THIS is a great, fun exercise to do with a partner. Stand with left foot in front of your right, hands up to protect your face, and tuck elbows in, chin down. Have a slight bend at your knees. With clenched fists, throw the jab straight out, rotating your palms down. Keep your elbows in and aligned with your fist and the rest of your body. As soon as your fist reaches full extension, quickly pull back to its original position and repeat. Swap when you’ve done your repetitions. l DO each exercise for 45 seconds then rest for 15 seconds. Do four to five rounds. Always warm up before exercise – and consult a doctor if you are new to exercise. START in a plank position, elbows below shoulders, palms on floor, forming a straight line along the body, abs engaged. Slowly twist the body to the side and bring the right arm up to the sky, balancing on the left arm while keeping hips raised off the floor. Hold for a second at the top then return to the starting plank position. YOUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE By KRIS HALLENGA TODAY marks 100 years since women finally got to vote. It’s amazing to think that my great grandmother was around to see that happen. The fact that there was a time in this country when women couldn’t vote still really baffles me. But now that we have that vote, it doesn’t exactly mean we have equality. I am sure we can all agree that we have some way to go until that happens. I do, however, believe in recognising milestones and celebrating people who went out of their way for something they truly believed in, and sacrificed so much in the process. As a result, women have more equal lives to men and have a voice. It’s now easy for young people to take this for granted, which I guess is why a lot of people don’t bother voting. I think we should celebrate not just the fact that a monumental shift happened 100 years ago, we should also celebrate choice – something we too often forget we have the privilege of. Choice plays a big role in my life, more than I would sometimes like, thanks to having cancer. I get to choose my treatment plan. There would likely have been a time when there were no choices at all. It was one way or the highway. I presume my grandmother, who had breast cancer at 30, wasn’t offered many options for treatment. She was given a mastectomy and no further treatments. She then lived for many years and cancer didn’t darken her life again. Right now, I am standing at the foothill of a mountain of treatment options, which is both comforting and really bloody confusing. Recently, I was told my cancer is more active again so I need to change treatment. This is easier said than done and no one can tell me the one clear plan of action that will help me. But I am kind of used to that now. With choice comes big responsibility and I will admit it all seems a bit much sometimes. If I hadn’t already been through nine years of this, I would wonder how I could manage any more. It’s lucky, then, that I have this rather big desire to stay alive for as long as possible, which is quite the driving force. We flex our right to decisionmaking most days. Sometimes our decisions can bring life-changing results. But even when they don’t, it’s good to remember those who had no choice and no voice, at all. Just coppafeel and look out for the following... LOOK for changes in skin texture such as puckering LOOK for swelling in your arm pit or around collar bone FEEL for lumps and thickening LOOK for constant pain in your breast or armpit LOOK for change in discharge LOOK for a change in size and shape LOOK for nipple inversion and changes in direction LOOK for a rash or crusting of the nipple or surrounding area 38 ...............

STEVE CHATFIELD Bushey, Herts WHAT a fantastic article by Tony Parsons, pictured. The British public are sick of being called everything from racist to homophobic — yet everyone still wants to be here. These idiots should go and live in the countries they so fervently support instead of degrading the UK, which has given them everything. DIANNE ELLIOTT South Shields, Tyne and Wear Fee won’t stop health tourism THE new crackdown on health tourists coming to this country is a welcome move – but the charge is nowhere near enough. £50 LETTER Every migrant should pay the whole cost of their treatment. I would never travel abroad if I did not have medical insurance. Those who come here specifically to get free treatment are costing us taxpayers hundreds of millions of pounds each year. It’s ridiculous. ANNABEL HAMMETT Ness, Cheshire THERESA May is doubling the fees visiting foreigners have to pay to use our NHS. But the £400 charge still falls short of the £600 promised in the Tory election manifesto — and is unlikely to deter those seeking cheap treatment here. This new figure is expected to raise £220million a year but that is just a smidgen of the £2billion cost of health tourism. SANDRA QUEEN Harlow, Essex THE proposed £400 charge for temporary migrants from outside the EU to use our NHS is a fraction of what British taxpayers stump up through tax. Yet again it’s the indigenous people who suffer discrimination. LAUREN SMITH Bristol THE Government’s plan to charge health tourists double is just posturing. Many do not bother to pay anyway. I will never agree that the NHS needs more money until they have stopped both health tourism and waste — such as paying massively inflated prices for run-of-the-mill medicines.

ALLAN MULHOLLAND Balby, South Yorks I HAVE tried to attend talks by Jacob Rees-Mogg but they are always booked up weeks in advance. How lucky Bristol University was to have him take the time to come and give a speech. Then you have time-wasters like Joshua Connor disrupting the evening — and Joshua says he believes in open democracy and freedom of speech. SANDRA HAYWOOD Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Notts ANON YOU can’t kill geese for landing on a golf course. Find another way to move them on. LES, Norfolk I WAS disgusted by Emmerdale’s acid-attack storyline. It’s time soaps stopped glamorising these sadistic attacks and had thoughts for real-life victims. LORRAINE, Whiteley, Hants thorn in Britain’s side for years. But the Tory pledge to treble fees has been reduced to doubling. Our poor A&E units have been snowed under. Ambulances with seriously ill patients have had to queue for hours outside hospitals. Meanwhile, health tourism continues to cost this country a staggering £2billion a year. It’s a disgrace and the Government must act now. ADAM IRVING Newcastle upon Tyne THERE is an anti-Jacob ReesMogg mood that is becoming rather nasty. He is a man who exercises free speech. Does anyone think being smack-facingly aggressive is clever? Young people of today do. But why? Simply because they cannot get their point across to a wider SO 1,000 Royal Marines and two assault vessels are to be scrapped. This must not happen. It could be prevented immediately by cutting the £17billion in overseas aid. The security of the UK and the armed flexibility of the Marines must be maintained. ALAN ANDREWS Paignton, Devon CUTTING troops is short-term thinking that will end up costing us much more in the long term. At a time when nearly every world power is increasing its military spending, why is the UK Government determined to cut troop and equipment numbers to such dangerously low levels?

With Mercury at the top of your chart, you get a clear view of the key people in your life. And the best answers to big questions come from the head, not the heart. A comfortable lifestyle and a love that grows with time may not sound like a dream romance but when you try it – wow. It could start when an intuitive friend makes the introductions. Helping a colleague finish a project makes you realise their job would be perfect for you. So don’t let careless words spill out. The non-stop determination of Saturn and a boost of extra energy from Mars may not be your usual style, but it helps you achieve so much today. This is also a day when love should be cherished, not taken for granted. Single? A Capricorn whose smile really gets to you still needs to know you’re interested. There’s lots to learn and like about a potential partner who arrives in your life, but resist asking or telling too much about past relationships. The moon inspires you to create a space to call your own at home where ideas will flow. The best way to help a relative with decisions to make is to listen. Flattery can be a clever way to disguise the truth when you are asked to give your opinion of a friend’s new look – but could lead to trouble later, so be tactful. When a face from a previous workplace reappears the love spark returns. In a long-term partnership, now’s the time to set new goals. The decisive edge of business planet Mercury can help you get deals done that make everyone feel they’ve gained something. Ambitions linked to the showbiz world change from being just daydreams to a detailed action plan. Someone whose feelings are usually well-hidden, gets romantic and you’re the reason. The moon moves into your birth sign and the atmosphere immediately gets more co-operative. Now is the the right time for you to be ambitious and go for the job you really want. If you’re single, falling in love with another Scorpio is a brave move leading to deep passion, rows and sultry reconciliation. Saturn turns you into a money expert, so instead of just hoping for the best you check all the facts. A savings target is ambitious but achievable – and developments in your love life inspire you. If you’re single, your new love wears two wrist watches – one is sporty and the other high fashion. You have a deeper understanding of how people think and feel – both newcomers and those you know well. This helps shared projects succeed. You see a different side of a partner that adds fun to the relationship. Talk again about home plans and this time the family will listen. Luck is written in gold and silver.

Following a disruptive rostering crisis last year, the low-cost Irish airline agreed for the first time to recognise the British Airline Pilots’ Association. Ryanair said similar talks in other countries were being finalised, adding: “We expect some localised disruptions and adverse PR so investors should be prepared for the same.” In the last quarter of 2017, it reported a 12 per cent increase in net profit to £84million. Revenues rose four per cent to £1.2billion while passenger numbers were up six per cent to 30.4million despite flights being cancelled due to the rostering fiasco. A £661.3million share buyback was announced to keep investors sweet. Staff costs this year will rise by £39million due to a 20 per cent pay rise for pilots and larger crews. Laith Khalaf, analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “The dials are moving in the right direction at Ryanair, but Michael O’Leary has switched the ‘fasten seatbelt’ sign on.” NEW CAR BUYS FALL NEW car sales are falling, with business purchases down by nearly a third, figures show. There were 163,615 cars leaving showrooms in January, down by 6.3 per cent compared with the same month last year. Demand fell across the board as people held on to cars for longer, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Business buys fell by 29.7 per cent, with a 9.5 per cent drop for private purchases and 1.8 per cent for fleet. Dual purpose cars (SUVs) were the only segment to see growth, with demand up 6.6 per cent. SERVICES SEE DROP GROWTH in the UK’s allimportant services sector has faltered, according to a closely-watched index which fell to its lowest level since September 2016. The purchasing managers’ index dropped from 54.2 to 53.0 in January. Although still above the 50 mark, which indicates expansion, it was well below hopes of a slight improvement for the month. IHS Markit, which compiles the survey, reported that firms – spanning transport companies, to IT outfits, hotels and restaurants – said growth was curtailed by a loss of clients and “lingering concerns” surrounding Brexit. 43 Tel: 020 7782 4050 e-mail: email@example.com £1 BUYS €1.13, US$1.40 BRENT CRUDE $67.75 Edited by TRACEY BOLES STOCK SHOCKER THE FTSE100 fell sharply yesterday to a two-month low with investors jittery at the prospect of rising interest rates, particularly in the US.

WESFARMERS — the Aussie firm that owns the DIY chain — said performance has been “weak”.

It reported a 16 per cent year-on-year rise in sales of its “mycoprotein” meat substitute. CEO Kevin Brennan said: “Around the world we are seeing a signifi- cant increase in meat-reduction diets, including both flexitarianism and veganism.” Quorn said it was due to increased awareness of the environmental impact of meat production. The firm, which exports to 20 different markets, aims to be a billion-dollar business by 2027. performance by Homebase is expected to drag Bunnings UK into an underlying loss of £97million for the first half of the year. Wesfarmers MD Rob Scott said: “The Homebase acquisition has been below our expectations which is obviously disappointing. “In light of this, a review of Bunnings UK has commenced to identify the actions required.” It is understood the 19 Bunnings pilot stores are among the better performing. Peter Davis, the man who spearheaded the foray into the UK, is to retire. He will be replaced by Damian McGloughlin, previously UK retail director at rival B&Q.

British Retail Consortium boss Helen Dickinson said: “2018 didn’t have a bad start in a lean month.” TESCO BOOKING BOOKER boss Charles Wilson will head up TESCO’s UK business following the supermarket’s £3.7billion takeover of his wholesale firm. The appointment will see current UK and Ireland boss Matt Davies, who joined Tesco in 2015, leave in April. Tesco group CEO Dave Lewis said: “Charles Wilson brings substantial commercial and retail experience and has an exceptional track record of increasing performance and driving growth.” The 52-year-old is in pole position to eventually take over from Lewis at the top of the group, analysts say. 44 ...............

After a third defeat in eight visits to the Super Bowl, he said: “Losing sucks but that’s part of it. You try to win and sometimes you lose. “I expect to be back but we’ll see. I have to process this a little bit but I don’t see why I wouldn’t be back. “The Eagles played a better game and they deserve to win. That’s why we’re not the champs.” Brady’s opposite number, Nick Foles, threw for 373 yards and three touchdown passes on his way to being named Super Bowl MVP. The Eagles quarterback, who almost quit two years ago when he fell out of love with the game, also took a touchdown catch from Trey Burton. Foles, 29, stepped in for the injured Carson Wentz in December and the Eagles have not looked back since on their run to Minneapolis. He said: “We have a great group of guys, a great coaching staff. We felt confident coming in and we just went out there and played football. “We’ve played this game since we were little kids.

There will not be much in it but we fancy the hosts to overcome their topflight opponents, with a draw halftime and Birmingham full-time at 11/2 with Sun Bets. BOWLED OVER . . . Brit’s joy, Brady woe The London-born running back and his Philadelphia Eagles took down NFL legend Tom Brady and the Patriots in a thriller at US Bank Stadium. Ajayi, 24, moved to the US aged seven and this year was traded midseason from Miami to Philadelphia. He said: “Everyone dreams of being a champion and I can say, even when I’m gone, I’m a Super Bowl champion. “The journey and the challenges that I’ve been through, but to still be able to touch and kiss that Lombardi Trophy and to understand that I’m a Super Bowl champion, is the greatest feeling in the world. “It’s rare to be in positions like this, coming from London, getting to the States and even being a Super Bowl champion. I’m so thankful to be on the Eagles.” Patriots quarterback Brady, 40, had his bid to become the first man to win six Super Bowls dashed. His dream was all but ended when he suffered the only sack of the game near the end of the match. Brady threw for 505 yards and three touchdowns in a near flawless performance but his Patriots were DIAMOND: Lukas Jutkiewicz to score anytime against Huddersfield, 21/10 with Sun Bets. NEXT BEST: Birmingham v Huddersfield, draw half-time and Birmingham full-time, 11/2 with Sun Bets.

Q/POT: £5.60 H SIR GEOFFREY (nap) can be our golden oldie in Southwell’s 3.35. He may be 12 but his legs certainly aren’t feeling it as he returned to winning ways here last month. He has a great record with jockey Keiran O’Neill and can go in again. FOOLAAD (3.05 Southwell, nb) can make a fool out of the bookies again. He has been in excellent form and was last seen winning a better race than this. He is expected to notch up another course and distance win. STAR ASCENDING (4.40 Southwell, treble) can end the day on a high. He has been thriving at this track recently and can defy another rise in the weights. H H 8-1 JENKINS A FAIR BET JENKINS looks the pick of Nicky Henderson’s five entries for Saturday’s £100,000 Betfair Hurdle at Newbury as the Seven Barrows trainer hunts a sixth win in the race. The six-year-old is officially 8lb ‘well in’ after his latest success at Ascot last month and the sponsors fear a gamble. Jenkins (right) is joint market leader with Lalor at 8-1. Mare Irish Roe next best at 10-1 for the two-mile thriller. Lalor bids to give Kayley Woollacott a big winner following the sad death of husband Richard. Betfair’s Katie Baylis said: “Jenkins won over course and distance in 2016 and the fitting of blinkers has seen him win his last two races in great style. We fear him. ” nBETFAIR HURDLE, sponsors bet: 8 Jenkins, Lalor, 10 Irish Roe, Kayf Grace, Lough Derg Spirit, 12 Bleu Et Rouge, Kalashnikov, 14 High Bridge, Knockanuss ABC: M-Market Rasen, Se-Sedgfield, So-Southwell About Glory 1.40Se Abraj Dubai 1.30So Agent Louise 4.20Se Ange Des Malberaux 1.40Se Anne’s Valentino 4.40So Antunes 1.50M Appletree Lane 2.20M Archimedes 3.35So Bal De Rio 2.45Se Be Mindful 2.00So Beau Mistral 4.10So Betjeman 1.30So Bezos 2.30So Bigpipenotobacee 4.00M Black Kettle 2.10Se Blistering Dancer 4.10So Blue Cove 4.20Se Board Of Trade 3.25M Bogart 3.05So Brecon Hill 2.45Se Broadway Belle 4.20Se Budarri 2.45Se Burrows Edge 2.55M Cash Again 3.15Se Charin’ Cross 4.20Se Chasma 2.20M Cherubic 2.00So Chookie Royale 2.45Se Classic Pursuit 3.05So Clayton Hall 4.40So Coiste Bodhar 4.10So Couldn’t Could She 1.30So Cousin Pete 4.30M Craggaknock 3.25M Cully Mac 1.40Se Dans Le Vent 2.55M Dawn Dancer 1.30So Deben 4.10So Deolali 1.30So Dig A Bit Deeper 3.50Se Dolly’s Dot 1.40Se Duhallowcountry 2.10Se Dun Faw Good 3.15Se Easter In Paris 2.20M Fare Thee Well 3.50Se Farmer Matt 4.30M Fiddler’s Flight 1.40Se Fighting Back 2.45Se Final Reminder 1.40Se Flemerina 2.20M Foolaad 3.05So Fortinbrass 3.35So Foxy Lady 2.00So Frankie Ballou 2.10Se Future Security 3.25M Generous Day 3.25M Gettin’ Lucky 4.10So Going Native 2.30So Hamelin Pool 1.50M Hard Graft 2.30So Helen Sherbet 2.30So Henry’s Joy 3.50Se Herewego Herewego 2.55M Heydour 2.55M High Anxiety 3.35So Houndscourt 4.20Se Instant Replay 3.15Se Interchoice Star 3.35So Ipcress File 2.00So Jack Blane 4.10So Jack Devine 3.50Se Just Minded 4.00M Kath’s Boy 3.35So Keepinupwitdjones 2.45Se Kilronan Castle 3.15Se Knight In Dubai 2.55M Knocklayde 1.40Se Lady Jayne 2.00So Love Rat 1.30So Make Good 2.30So Master Of Finance 3.25M Memories Galore 3.05So Midnight Malibu 3.05So Millrose Bell 4.20Se Minella Tweet 4.00M Money For Nothing 2.10Se Montague 2.30So Monthyne 2.55M Monzino 4.40So Naasik 2.45Se New Tale 3.35So Nicely Indeed 3.25M Night Shadow 3.35So Odds On Oli 2.00So Oistrakh Le Noir 1.50M Oriental Relation 3.05So Oscar O’scar 3.15Se Oyster Card 4.40So Pacific Fleet 1.30So Pastoral Music 2.45Se Pearl Acclaim 3.05So Phantom Isle 2.45Se Phoeniciana 4.00M Piazon 3.05So Plansina 2.00So Poetic Presence 4.20Se Political Slot 2.00So Poorauldjosephine 2.00So Poppy May 4.10So Princess Tara 3.25M Princess Way 4.10So Pronto Tonto 2.55M Quadriga 2.45Se Randy Pike 3.50Se Razin’ Hell 3.05So Real Milan 4.30M Red Shanghai 4.40So Romulus Du Donjon 4.00M Sable Island 1.50M Sammy’s Choice 4.10So Scorpo 3.50Se Shelneverwalkalone 3.35So Silchester 1.30So Simafar 1.50M Sir Geoffrey 3.35So Sir Jack Yeats 4.30M Skipping On 2.10Se Sleep In First 2.10Se Spin The Coin 1.40Se Spiritoftomintoul 4.40So Star Ascending 4.40So Stoical Patient 2.20M Tael O’ Gold 1.50M The Delray Munky 4.20Se The Roof Hub 1.30So Titan 2.45Se Toby Lerone 4.30M Top Cat Henry 3.15Se Towering 3.25M Trick Of The Lyte 3.35So Trust Me I’m A Dr 3.50Se Turtle Cask 4.20Se Warden Hill 4.30M What’s Occurring 2.55M Wolfslair 1.40Se Working Class 1.50M Zoltan Varga 1.50M ALTHendo SYSTEMS GO happy as star returns NICKY HENDERSON has given Altior the thumbs-up ahead of his first run of the season at Newbury on Saturday. The superstar chaser will go for a seventh straight win over fences in the Game Spirit Chase. He has not been seen on the track since last April when he won at Sandown. The eight-year-old was diagnosed with a breathing problem in mid-November and underwent an operation soon after. Henderson By STEVE JONES is confident the issue has now been sorted and Altior has impressed in all his recent gallops. The four-time champion trainer said: “The intention is to run Altior at Newbury. His work has been good, I couldn’t be happier. “If the ground is good to soft or soft then Altior will be declared for the race.” Henderson (left) has a good chance of getting his wish for decent ground as Newbury have already put MARKET RASEN 1.50 ENHANCED PLACE ODDS AT 188BET JUVENILE HURDLE (Class 4); 4-y-o; winner £4,549; 2m 1f.

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 JOY . . . Eve, Thomas and Glen Muir the merrier together By DAVID COVERDALE WHEN it comes to curling, Team GB are hoping that three Muirheads are better than one. Four years ago in Sochi, Eve Muirhead, now 27, became the youngest skip to win an Olympic medal when she led the girls to bronze. Now this year in PyeonChang, she will be joined by brothers Tom and Glen. The Muirhead boys admit they have been inspired by the achievements of Eve. And they vividly remember where they were when their sister made history in Russia. Tom, 22, said: “I was at the back of a lecture room in Edinburgh watching it on my phone. I was screaming inside. “Seeing the medals was the moment it sunk in for me and I thought, ‘That’s what I’m gunning for in the next four years’.” Glen, 28, added: “I was at the market selling sheep. Fortunately, at the cafe at the market, there was a big TV.” There is another family connection in the men’s rink as skip Kyle Smith is joined by his brother Cammy. Kyle Waddell and Tom Muirhead make up the rest of the four-man team, with Glen Muirhead selected as an alternate. Team Smith begin their campaign against Switzerland a week tomorrow. As for the women, Eve Muirhead — now in her third Games — skips her brother Glen’s girlfriend Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Lauren Gray, with Kelly Schafer an alternate. Eve said: “I haven’t seen my brothers that often so it’ll be good to spend a few weeks with them at the Games.” World up for Brits By VIKKI ORVICE GREAT BRITAIN will host the inaugural athletics World Cup at London’s Olympic Stadium. The competition on July 14-15 will feature one female and male athlete from eight nations in all track and field events in a straight-to-final format. USA, Germany, Jamaica and South Africa are among those taking part. Each nation will be competing for a £1.4million prize pot over two evening sessions. Seb Coe, president of the sport’s governing body the IAAF, said: “This is one of the exciting innovative events we are seeing in our sport.” And UK Athletics chairman Richard Bowker added: “This will be an incredible event.” 1GM ENGLAND v WALES SCRUM ’N ’AV A GO! DRIVING FORCE . . . Jones revealed England have prioritised the scrum during training sessions 4 DAYS TO GO WIGGLESWORTH . . . call Youngs is hit for Six By JONNY FORDHAM BEN YOUNGS will be sidelined for up to four months after rupturing knee ligaments. The England scrum-half, 28, had a scan last night and was told that his Six Nations was over. And the Leicester man — who suffered the injury in Sunday’s 46-15 Six Nations win against Italy — will see a surgeon this week to see if he requires an operation. Youngs’ understudy Danny Care will be ready to step in but was horrified by Youngs’ injury. Harlequins ace Care, 31, said: “You never want to pick up such a bad injury. I was gutted to see Ben in so much pain. “It would be great to get into the No 9 shirt for the Wales match, having had 70 minutes under my belt against Italy. “Hopefully, we can get going from where we left off against them.” Saracens’ Richard Wigglesworth could earn a first Red Rose cap since 2015 after being called up as Care’s back-up. Exeter hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie has also been called into the Red Rose squad for Tom Dunn. 6 NATIONS Eddie lets his pack do the talking By JONNY FORDHAM EDDIE JONES refused to put the boot in on Wales — the fans to be pumped. We have for now! great fans and these are the sort England’s mind games specialist was served up a perfect halfvolley when he was asked about Saturday’s Anglo-Welsh clash at Twickenham. But Jones, usually the circus ringmaster in the build-up to these mouthwatering Six Nations showdowns, let it pass. In 2016, the Red Rose chief piled into the “terribly illegal” scrum that Warren Gatland’s side were “ruining the game” with. And last year he teased the Welsh all the way to kick-off over whether he wanted the Principality Stadium roof open or closed. And he also told the Cardiff crowd to throw as many daffodils as they wanted, as his side were ready for dirty tricks. This time, the build-up has started as a Cold War between the Aussie and Wales’ Kiwi coach Gatland. Jones (right) said: “I’m not concerned about Wales at this stage. “What I am excited about is getting back to Twickenham and playing in front of 82,000 people. “They’re going to be so up for it. It’s going to be an unbelievable atmosphere. “I can’t wait to get there. We want of games they love — the most traditional rivals in European rugby against each other, both at the top of the table. It’s what you want.” In November, the bristling packs came face to face at the infamous ‘Battle of Bristol’ training session. Since that day, Jones has been convinced his side are well on the way to having the best scrum in the world. After beating Italy 46-15 in their championship opener on Sunday, he hailed his eight’s best performance under his watch. He also credited nutty scrum professor Marc Dal Maso after the consultant flew in last week from Toulon. Jones said: “Dal Maso is a crazy scientist. “He’s one of those blokes, he’ll be sitting in the room and banging his fists together — he’s got the perfect picture of a scrum in his head. “I’ve never met a bloke like him. “He brings something different because he’s got so many unusual thoughts. “He might bring six things forward and one of them will be absolutely brilliant. “It’s a great resource for us to have. He floats in, floats out, brings one or two ideas and we work out whether it’s good for us to do it. “There has been great coaching by Neal Hatley too and great physical development by the players. “They’ve got stronger and more flexible, so we can scrum lower. It is a combination of the players and coaches working together. We’ve obviously prioritised it. “We had the scrum session in November against Wales and there is the possibility of having another one.” After starting their Six Nations defence with a bonus point, Jones also reckons his injury-hit squad is greater than the sum of its parts. He added: “Our game is based on collective talent. EIGHT EXPECTATIONS “We don’t . . . scrum expert Marc Dal have a lot of Maso has been dubbed the individuals who can run through ‘crazy scientist’ by Jones brick walls, we do it through collective talent.” Tweet @SunJonny Fordham England Wales Ireland France Scotland Italy P 1 1 1 1 1 1 W 1 1 1 0 0 0 D 0 0 0 0 0 0 L 0 0 0 1 1 1 F 46 34 15 13 7 15 A Pts 15 5 7 5 13 4 15 1 34 0 46 0 Stars give Gats a lift GEORGE NORTH and Liam Williams have given Wales a big fitness boost for the crunch clash with England. Warren Gatland’s star backs returned to training and are in contention for Saturday’s Six Nations showdown at Twickenham. Williams is fit again after intensive rehabilitation on an abdominal problem. North missed Saturday’s 34-7 drubbing of Scotland because of a knee injury but proved his condition with a try in Northampton’s 36-10 Anglo-Welsh Cup win over Harlequins that day. Wales skills coach Neil Jenkins said: “George playing last week was a big boost for us and it’s the same with Liam. “They are both worldclass players and they’re a big positive for us. “We are under no illusions over how tough it’s going to be at Twickenham.” 1GM Tuesday, February 6, 2018 ...............

That is the fear of Ricky Hatton, who was stopped in his comeback fight in 2012 after a lengthy lay-off. Fury (left) has not boxed since he beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 but is edging closer to a return after applying for his boxing licence back. The Gypsy King wants to face world IBF and WBA champ Anthony Joshua.

TRIPLE THREAT What happened when John Cena, Braun Strowman and Elias faced off on Monday Night Raw? GERMAN CUP Bayern Munich keep up their treble hunt with a quarter-final clash at Paderborn. Trapped in an inferno THE Munich air crash was WHEN reporter Tom Jackson of the Manchester Evening News a traumatic experience for died in the Munich air disaster 60 years ago today, DAVID MEEK everyone connected to was asked to take his place. Here David, who covered Manchester United from then until Manchester United and 1995, recalls the tragedy and the painful aftermath which will the entire football family for ever be central to the club’s history. and beyond. Over the years we have that part of the plane got out crash and which went on to grieved for those who lost their lives and sympathised with all those whose lives were touched and damaged by the tragedy. For me, personally, my working life underwent a dramatic change. The editor of the Manchester Evening News, Tom Henry, took me away from writing about politics to take the place of our United correspondent, Tom Jackson, who was one of the eight journalists on board who lost their lives. I think of those football writers as fellow journalists who were caught up in the disaster, after the plane crashed on take-off following a refuelling stop at Munich, on the way home from United’s European Cup tie against Red Star in Belgrade. Football fans easily remember the eight players who lost their lives. Perhaps not as clearly do they recall the eight journalists, the big guns of football reporters, who also perished. In fact, only one reporter survived — Frank Taylor of the News Chronicle and he suffered some terrible injuries. The reason the journalists were particularly hard hit was because they were all sitting in the same part of the plane, tucked up at the back — as is the custom when the press and players fly together in order to give the players more leg room. The flight home was no different, except this time the ill-fated tail section was ripped off and spun wildly into a building, catching fire. The sports writers had no chance and I don’t like to think about the manner of their deaths, trapped in the blazing inferno. Nobody from alive. Frank Taylor lived to tell the tale because he chose to sit further up the plane. There was still a fire danger for the rest of the aircraft, as the surviving pilot shouted out to those players who had scrambled out of the wreckage. Harry Gregg and Bill Foulkes had miraculously emerged, dazed but unhurt, and heeded the pilot’s warning. They started to run until goalkeeper Gregg thought he heard the sound of a baby crying coming from the aircraft. He immediately stopped and ran back to the wreckage. He forced his way inside and came out with a baby in his arms, which he handed to one of the surviving cabin staff. He went back in a second time because he had seen the baby’s mother trapped in her seat. He kicked out some more panelling to make the hole in the fuselage big enough to complete the rescue. Baby Vesna Lukic, only 22 months old at the time of the crash, grew up to become a teacher in Belgrade. Heroic Harry, who had been at Old Trafford for only six weeks following a £23,000 transfer from Doncaster, acted with great bravery and I think the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Munich would be the moment to give him a medal. He and Bill played in the makeshift team put together by assistant manager Jimmy Murphy that beat Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup fifth round 13 days after the reach the final against Bolton. Harry says it took him 40 years to confront his Munich demons. But, looking back, he says of the crash: “There were no screams, no human sounds, only the terrible tearing of metal. “All around was dark and it was as if I was frozen in time. “I couldn’t comprehend the scene of utter devastation around me. It was only in hospital that the enormity of the situation hit home.” As well as the eight United players who lost their lives — Roger Byrne, Mark Jones, Duncan Edwards, Tommy Taylor, Eddie Colman, Liam Whelan, David Pegg and Geoff Bent — two were so badly injured, Johnny Berry and Jackie Blanchflower, they never played again. Two club coaches, Bert Whalley and Tom Curry, were killed, as was the long-serving United secretary, Walter Crickmer. A lot of people wondered where United manager Matt Busby got the strength from to return to football and start all over again. I went to see him soon after he had come home. He had aged terribly and told me the hardest part for him was the way Johnny Berry kept coming to his room in hospital to say that Tommy Taylor is some friend, he hasn’t been to visit. Sir Matt said: “They set my foot one bone at a time and it was cruel — but it didn’t hurt me like Johnny coming to my room every day to say Tommy Taylor was a poor friend. “I just didn’t know how to tell him the tragic truth.” Now is the time to give Harry a medal Swansea v Notts Co 8.05pm, BBC1 CARLOS CARVALHAL is the “Unpredictable One” says his Swansea skipper Federico Fernandez. The Swans have lost just once in nine matches since the former Sheffield Wednesday boss took over. Fernandez said: “The manager is a special guy — you never know what to expect. “He talks about history but it’s funny and he is passionate and clever. He’s doing a great job.” League Two County have used Cardiff’s training facilities to prepare and coach Mark Crossley said: “This is a free hit for us.” No Mour chat, Cot Birmingham v Huddersfield 7.45pm STEVE COTTERILL revealed his Birmingham players have banned themselves from ‘stupid’ talk about Manchester United. The Blues will claim a fifth-round date with Jose Mourinho’s men if they beat Huddersfield tonight. But boss Cotterill said: “There might have been a bit of chat about United coming back on the bus from Huddersfield but there hasn’t been any more since the draw. “The players know anything they say stupidly about United is going to come back and haunt us with Huddersfield.” Kitching designs Rochdale v Millwall 7.45pm MARK KITCHING is sure that Rochdale’s new-found momentum can see them beat Millwall. The League One relegation battlers were denied a shock result in south London after a last-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw. Midfielder Kitching, 22, said: “We have built on that performance and are playing really well.” The winners are set for a money-spinning home televised tie against either Tottenham or Newport. Lions boss Neil Harris said: “It’s a game we want to get through with a carrot at the end of it.” 1GM Tuesday, February 6, 2018 ............... THE BIG REF ROW PREMIER LEAGUE RIDICULOUS ATKINSON . . . query Now no one understands the offside law MOSS Dave Kidd IN the course of one penalty decision at Anfield on Sunday, two uncomfortable truths were laid bare for the refereeing fraternity. Firstly, that the offside law is a dog’s dinner. Secondly, that while refs may condemn players for dishonesty, they’re no paragons of virtue themselves. Long gone are the days when you could get away with the tired old gag about women not understanding the offside law, especially in an age when NOBODY comprehends the current version. Former World Cup refs Graham Poll and Mark Clattenburg had differing views as to whether Jon Moss was correct to award Harry Kane the first of Spurs’ two late penalties in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool. So how are the rest of us supposed to have a clue? The issue was whether Kane should have been judged offside, given that Dejan Lovren had miscued a clearance into his path. Age-old logic dictates that Kane CHIEF SPORTS WRITER must have been interfering with play, given that Lovren acted rashly in the knowledge that the hottest goalscorer on the planet was lurking behind him. But apparently that logic no longer applies. And to properly decipher the current version of the law would take a PhD in advanced code-cracking. But the second aspect is even more troubling for Premier League refs — the fact that when Moss consulted with linesman Eddie Smart, he clearly asked, through his microphone, whether fourth official Martin Atkinson had seen anything on TV as to whether Lovren had touched the ball. Now, this practice is OFFSIDE Q&A not allowed — although everyone has long suspected the refs were at it, asking help from a fourth official within sight of a replay screen. When Moss was caught by the eavesdropping TV coverage, the referees’ body PGMOL issued a statement claiming he had been ‘misguided’ in this but that Atkinson, conveniently, had not answered him. So we’re expected to believe Moss instantly awarded a penalty on the basis of Atkinson blanking him? In a court of law, it wouldn’t need Rumpole of the Bailey to crossexamine the heck out of that story. The incident seems even more ridiculous at present, with the VAR system being trialled in certain cup games but not in the Premier League. While Moss was clearly breaking the rules, this made it seem more of a grey area as to whether he was really doing anything seriously wrong. And whether you agree with VAR or not, it was refreshing to be able to hear the officials communicate with one another — even if only to realise what we always expected: that they’re pretty much making it up as they go along. Still, at least Kane had the decency to produce a poor penalty which was saved, making the whole argument irrelevant anyway . . . Assistant Referee EDDIE SMART JON MOSS KANE in offside position but is he active? WHAT DOES THE LAW SAY? Law 11 states a player in an offside position receiving possession from an opponent — who DELIBERATELY plays the ball — is not considered to have gained an advantage. WHEN DID THE LAW CHANGE? The law was changed by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) in the summer of 2015. It stated then . . . A player in an offside position is penalised if — at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of his team — he is, in the opinion of the ref, involved in active play by l Interfering with play l Interfering with an opponent l Gaining an advantage by being in that position WHY DID THE LAW CHANGE? Lawmakers wanted to give the advantage to the attackers in situations where the ball is deliberately played by an opponent or when the opponent makes a deliberate block. MARK HALSEY’S VIEW ON THE LAW . . . The offside law at present is unsatisfactory and an ass for refs, players, managers and fans. It’s a grey area and there is too much interpretation. HALSEY’S VIEW ON SUNDAY — DID HARRY KANE IMPACT ON DEJAN LOVREN? WAS KANE INVOLVED IN ACTIVE PLAY? I think Kane has impacted on Lovren and therefore he is interfering with an opponent — that would have definitely meant offside was given under the previous law but I still feel there is room for that interpretation to be given as offside now. Having spoken to officials past and present, many agree with me but this was an incident that has divided people. The IFAB need an independent review of this incident and the offside law needs to be refined because it is too confusing for everybody. Smart: All I need to know is did (Dejan) Lovren touch the ball or not? Moss: I don’t know. Smart: If he’s not touched the ball, it’s offside, so you’re chalking off the penalty. It has to be offside if Lovren hasn’t touched the ball. Christian Eriksen: He did touch the ball. Emre Can: He didn’t. Smart: I can’t be sure if Lovren touched the ball or not. That is the question I am asking. Moss: Just talk to me again. Smart: You know what I’m asking. I need to clarify, has Lovren touched the ball? If he has, it’s a deliberate action and, therefore, it’s a penalty. If he hasn’t, it’s offside. Moss: I’ve no idea whether Lovren touched the ball to be honest with you. Martin, have you got anything from the TV? (Both look towards fourth official Martin Atkinson) Moss: I’m giving the penalty. From Back Page Premier League and Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves tweeted that Atkinson did NOT look at a pitchside monitor. Moss’ bosses at the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) revealed his mistake in a statement released yesterday. It read: “He asked a question to his fourth official Martin Atkinson and acknowledges that referencing ‘TV’ was misguided.” But PGMOL backed Moss and his team for their performance — saying they got the first penalty decision right. Moss spoke to his assistant Eddie Smart as Liverpool appealed for offside after hitman Harry Kane pounced on Dejan Lovren’s miscued clearance — and was then brought down by keeper Loris Karius. Following Moss and Smart’s discussion, West Yorkshire whistler Moss said: “I’m giving the penalty.” PGMOL insisted Moss was convinced a Reds star played Kane onside. A spokesman said: “Moss knew a Liverpool player had touched the ball but not that it was Lovren. “Atkinson did not reply to the question, so had no involvement in the decision.” Kane missed the resulting spot-kick — but Kop boss Jurgen Klopp was fuming after the Tottenham star grabbed a late equaliser when Spurs were given a second penalty. LALLANA . . . last night Throat-grab Lallana’s red ADAM LALLANA saw red last night after grabbing a player by the throat. The Liverpool forward, 29, was using the Under-23s clash against Tottenham to try and get match fit after an injury-stricken season.

The Belgian centre-back, 31, has seen his last few years wrecked by injuries. But he is now fit and wants to ensure the final year-and-a-half on his contract is glittering.

Kane was given the boot by the Gunners as an eight-year-old, ending up at Spurs via Watford. Since breaking into the first-team picture — after loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester — Kane has written himself into Spurs legend. The England striker, 24, became the second-fastest man to score 100 goals in Premier League history when he netted the 95th-minute penalty that earned his team a 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday. And as he prepared for Saturday’s North London derby with Arsenal at Wembley, Kane spoke of the extra motivation he feels playing against his club’s By CHARLIE WYETT greatest rivals. He recalled: “I was playing for Arsenal’s youth team. I was behind enemy lines so to speak but it was a great opportunity. “One day when I was eight, I was walking to the park with my dad and he said out of the blue, ‘I’ve got to tell you something’. “He put his arm around my shoulder and said, ‘Well, Harry, Arsenal have released you’. I do remember how my father reacted and how it made me feel. “He didn’t criticise me. He didn’t criticise Arsenal. He didn’t even look especially bothered by it at all. “He just said, ‘Don’t worry, Harry. We’ll work harder — and we’ll go on and find another club’. “After Arsenal, I bounced around a bit. I was spotted by a scout from Watford who offered me a trial and then after playing for them against Tottenham I got the opportunity to join Spurs’ youth academy. “The white kit fitted better on me. “I remember the first time we played against Arsenal — and even back then I had a chip on my shoulder.” Those words from dad Pat had the desired effect. And as he prepares to lock horns with the Gunners again Kane, who has six goals in his seven games against Arsene Wenger’s team, told the Players’ Tribune: “Rejection is the best thing that ever happened to me. “It gave me a drive that wasn’t there before. “When I was lacing up my boots for my first start in the North London derby SPURRED ON . . .

BACK TO HAUNT ’EM . . . Kane nets penalty at the Emirates in November 2016 to earn Spurs a 1-1 draw GETCHA Harry ahead of clash back in 2015, I had a flashback to when I was 11, playing against Arsenal’s youth team. It was like deja vu. “Before every match, I always visualise scenarios of exactly how I’ll score. “Left-foot curler into the bottom corner, right-foot volley from the corner of the box. “I’ve always been that way. I get really detailed about it — I’ll picture my opponents, the cut of the grass, everything. This time, I pictured defenders wearing the red Arsenal kit and I got goosebumps. “We were in the tunnel and I thought, ‘it took me 12 years but we’ll see who was right and who was wrong’. “I scored two that day and the winner in the 86th minute was something I’d never even dreamed of visualising before. “It was a header — probably the best I’ve ever scored. “That feeling when it hit the back of the net, I’ve never felt a rush like that in my whole career. “I remember walking round the pitch after the final whistle, clapping to the fans and it felt like, ‘I told you so’.” Kane admitted he questioned himself, especially during that spell at Leicester in 2013. He added: “When Tottenham sent me out on loan for two years, there were so many moments when I questioned whether I’d ever get the chance to score even one goal in the Premier League. “I remember sitting in my flat and having this terrible realisation, ‘If I can’t play for Leicester in the Championship, how am I supposed to play for Spurs in the Premier League?’ “That was the first time in my career, I’d say, that the doubt crept in. “But I also learned a lot of great lessons during those years. It wasn’t just about Arsenal, it’s a little deeper. “It was about proving something to myself and to my family, who believed in me every step of the way.” Having now reached his century, Kane thanked his family, including fiancee Kate, boss Mauricio Pochettino and the thousands who sing the Tottenham anthem ‘He’s One of Our Own’. And to those Spurs fans who wonder if Kane might be considering leaving the club — with Real Madrid and Manchester United both heavily linked — his message was one to delight them. He added: “I dreamed of playing for Spurs since I was a boy. “For a long time my motivation was simply to close my eyes and picture myself scoring against Arsenal in the Premier League. “I’ve done that a few times now and it never gets old. “Now, I close my eyes and picture myself lifting the Premier League trophy at our new stadium with my mates. “I’d trade the next 100 goals for that feeling. “Two hundred has to be the aim — and hopefully quicker than I got to 100. “It is nice, I am going to enjoy this moment but let’s see how many I can get this year and go from there.” Tweet @CharlieWyett What Daniel Levy must do now is make sure that club is Spurs and no one else. I know Harry has been very open and honest about his love for Tottenham. Totally committed to the cause, with absolutely no desire to do it anywhere else. Yet the whispers continue that some day, maybe not too far in the future, Real Madrid will come calling. It is always easier to pledge loyalty when there is no tricky decision to be made. Which is why Levy has to dig deeper than ever before and put an end to any murmurs once and for all by breaking the bank for Europe’s greatest scorer. Yes, I know Kane still has 4 years left on his contract and I’m well aware he doesn’t exactly scramble for loose change to buy a loaf and a pint of milk. But his latest landmark — hitting a century of Premier League goals — should be the spark that sees Levy make a statement of intent. If Harry is happy to stay at Tottenham, then pay him the wages his status merits. And if that means sending a rocket through the club’s pay structure, so be it. Not just for Kane’s future and peace of mind, but for every other player at the club and those that may have their eyes on signing further down the line. Tying him down for six years, maybe even longer, would prove how serious Levy is about keeping him for good. And that would also be a massive help in bringing in the supporting cast — or, in some ARE THE TALK OF FOOTBALL cases, keeping it — that his talents merit. It’s great to hear Harry talk of his dream of helping Spurs win major trophies and it would be a travesty if he ended with nothing to show for it because of a lack of back-up. So get your skates on Daniel, because if you don’t then, sooner or later Real, Barca, PSG or one of the game’s other giant spenders will put that loyalty to the test. Make no mistake, it’s not a case of who would want Kane in their side, but where couldn’t he go? I certainly can’t think of anywhere. Not bad for a kid who many insisted was a one-season wonder not too long ago. I’m not the only one who thinks if he steers clear of serious injury, he has a real chance of beating Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 260 goals. The way he’s going, he’ll do it in about four years, never mind by the end of his career. What I’ve always loved about Harry is his hunger, his appetite, his burning desire to score. It’s why I said very early on that he really excited me, how he was such a fantastic finisher and why he would always score goals. A part of his game which rarely gets a mention is his work-rate, his willingness to close down defenders and win the ball. It’s a great attitude to have and one all the greats possess. And what impresses me is how he invariably gets his effort on target. No wonder tearing up the record books has become something of a habit where Harry is concerned. Now Levy must do the same to Kane’s Spurs contract and replace it with one that sends a message to every other club on the planet — that Harry’s going nowhere. Ever. CLEVER BOOTS . . .

They played with confusion in the second half. And they showed a lack of personality throughout. These were the words Antonio Conte used to damn his own team last night. The manager of the Premier League champions sounded like a dead man walking and the transcript of last night’s press conference at Vicarage Road might end up being regarded as his suicide note. Conte had been requesting a vote of confidence from owner Roman Abramovich before this match. After it, he delivered an alarming vote of no-confidence in his own players. Conte insinuated that if his best was not good enough, then Abramovich should sack him and he can go home to Italy. Asked whether he thought he could survive this thrashing, Conte said he could not predict the future and then he mentioned his team’s last two results. Chelsea 0 Bournemouth 3. Watford 4 Chelsea 1. Intolerable results for Abramovich. Add some coded mutterings which suggested he fears his own players might have been briefing against him and you would be a brave man to bet on Conte lasting the week. Chelsea, as is their wont, have veered from triumph to disaster. The champions are an illtempered, fractious rabble — a reflection of their manager’s mood. Chelsea’s turbulent boss has whinged long and hard about transfer policy and overseen a run of just two wins in ten matches. Their Champions League berth is under threat and that is when Abramovich often pulls the trigger. Yet whoever decided to spend £40million on Tiemoue Bakayoko seems to have proved Conte right about their problems in the transfer market. After Eden Hazard cancelled out Troy Deeney’s opener, Chelsea were blitzed by three late goals from Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra. But Bakayoko set the scene when he was sent off after just 30 minutes, following one of the worst individual performances you will ever see from a Premier League player. When ref Mike Dean gave him his marching orders, his 19 By DAVE KIDD CHIEF SPORTS WRITER second yellow card was a little harsh. But you could see what Dean was getting at — he was, in effect, dismissing the Chelsea midfielder because his first touch had been so bad it was endangering the safety of opponents. Having teed up Richarlison for a clear run on the Chelsea goal, with one of several misplaced passes, Bakayoko was sent off for two fouls on that same player in the space of five minutes. As he trudged off, aiming a melancholy round of applause at the travelling fans, the Chelsea faithful sang ‘you’re f***ing s**t’. A short-handed Chelsea were soon behind — but this was not all about one man’s personal nightmare. For Watford this was only a second win in 13 and a timely one as they had been sliding towards a relegation scrap. In his first programme notes as Watford’s tenth manager in 5 years, Javi Gracia described his new club as being ‘like a family’. Yep, the sort of family which disowns key members every six months and ends up swearing at one another on the Jeremy Kyle Show. Yet Conte is the one under threat at present. Having whinged about his lack of striking options and then landed a battle-hardened Premier League centreforward in Olivier Giroud, he left him on the bench. He recalled David Luiz for a first Premier League start since October and the WATFORD beat Chelsea for the first time in almost 19 years — since a 1-0 win in the Premier League back in September 1999. Brazilian was soon being tormented by Deulofeu. Deeney was wasteful for Watford, Willian for Chelsea but none were as shoddy as Bakayoko. Richarlison was the victim of Bakayoko’s two yellow-card challenges — the first one clumsy, the second courtesy of a first touch which made the second a lunging tackle. It took 12 minutes for Watford to capitalise on their extra man. Luiz got in a muddle and Deulofeu scampered round the back of Gary Cahill, Thibaut Courtois dashing out to clip the winger’s left foot. Deeney, who always scores penalties and rarely celebrates them modestly, stayed true to form. Deulofeu and Richarlison both curled efforts wide and Abdoulaye Doucoure forced Courtois into a flying save. But Giroud’s arrival gave Chelsea more of a focal point and Cesc Fabregas forced one decent stop from Orestis Karnezis before Hazard curled home a beauty, eight minutes from time. Yet Janmaat cut in from the right and played a one-two with Pereyra before firing Watford back in front. Then Deulofeu scored a supreme solo effort after picking up the ball inside his own half. Long before Pereyra lashed in the fourth after a Doucoure pass, Chelsea’s fans had been looking forward to their next Champions League clash by singing ‘Barcelona we’re coming for you!’ And for all the world, when Abramovich hired Conte, he did not expect his club’s supporters to be singing that song with their tongues so firmly in their cheeks.

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois has clipped Gerard Deulofeu and assistant Ian Hussin waved his flag straight away to indicate to Mike it is a penalty. But why on earth has Deulofeu thrown himself into the air following the contact? Just go down normally. On another day Mike could have cautioned Deulofeu for simulation. The 3 CHELSEA conceded four goals in a single Premier League match for the first time in more than three years. Before last night, the previous time was in their 5-3 humbling at London rivals Tottenham back on New Year’s Day in 2015. 3 ALL three of Troy Deeney’s goals in the Premier League this season have been penalties against sides in the traditional “big six” — Arsenal, Manchester United and now Chelsea.

Bakayoko gets second yellow for challenge on Richarlison challenge and got a second caution but he should not have been cautioned for the first one. Dean showed inconsistency when Daryl Janmaat stopped a promising attack on Chelsea wideman Pedro. It was a surprise he was not cautioned considering his earlier decision to punish Bakayoko. Blues boss Antonio Conte complained and Richarlison was cautioned soon after for a careless challenge. CHELSEA have been shown seven red cards in all comps this season — the most of any Prem side. Only Grimsby (eight) have had more of sides in England’s top four tiers. fear FINGER . . .

I work every day and I give 120 per cent. OK? If this is enough, it’s OK. Otherwise, the club can take a different decision. But I’m not worried. “Tomorrow is another day. I can be the Chelsea coach or not. Which is the problem? My conscience is clear. “I try to do everything. If it’s not good, the club can make a different decision. Life goes on. “I have great disappointment, for sure. Our performance was very poor tonight. “We started very badly and without personality. We played with fear. I think this is the worst situation that I can see as a coach. “To play football in a great club, it means you must have a personality because it’s simple to play when there is confidence. “In this type of moment, you can see who is ready to play for a great club, to play with personality and also to risk something.” Ten-man Chelsea crumbled just two minutes after equalising through Eden Hazard and have now lost two games on the spin — conceding seven goals. Chelsea had Tiemoue Bakayoko sent off after half an hour for two bookable offences and he appeared to suffer abusive chants from his own fans as he left the pitch. Watford were sent on their way to their biggest ever Premier League win by Troy Deeney’s 42ndminute penalty. Conte said: “We can lose, but we have to try to play football and try to be positive. Instead, we started very badly. Then the yellow cards. “We were able to draw level and I think, in that moment, we must be good to manage the situation. “Instead, in ten minutes, we were able to concede three more goals.” Conte’s predecessor Jose Mourinho tempted fate by claiming he had been ‘betrayed’ by his players just before getting the boot in 2015. The Italian said: “Do you think that a club can decide to sack a coach if there is not the support of the players? “You think the players have this power? Yes? This is wrong.” Watford boss Javier Gracia said: “The match changed with the sending off, but I was happy with the way we played even before that.” Ancelotti, who had two years at Stamford Bridge between 2009-11, is out of work having been sacked at Bayern Munich in September. And ex-Barcelona boss Enrique, who won two La Liga titles and the Champions League in Spain, is also available. 56 ...............

Today The Sun publishes a special pullout to celebrate the cententary of them getting the right to vote. The 100 women featured have made history . . . and touched the lives of millions. 100 years 100 women 2 ............... Tuesday, February 6, 2018 1GY 100 years, 100 women Heroines who led the way By JANE MOORE Sun Columnist IT was a landmark moment for the rights of women. On February 6, 1918, King George V gave assent to The Representation Of The People Act, giving females the right to vote for the first time. OK, it was only some women, but it was a start. You had to be aged over 30 and be pretty well off. But at last, more than eight million extra women (and five-and-a-half million men) had a say in who governed them. To celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage we have compiled this special pullout, featuring 100 women who have made a mark on Britain over the past 100 years. We cannot claim that this is a definitive list. How can you compare a Hollywood star with a Nobel Prize scientist, a sporting great with a social reformer, a Page Three girl with an author? Some changed lives, others changed history. Others simply brought excitement and entertainment to millions. The 1918 law change came after years of struggle by two groups – the militant suffragettes and the nonviolent suffragists. In the decade before the Great War women took to the streets, with the more extreme campaigners even planting explosive devices. During the war, millions of women did jobs vacated by men who had gone off to fight. It kept the factories open and the war effort on track. That made it harder to deny us a vote any longer. Of course our list is open to debate. And the real female heroes have never been famous. They’re the grafters, the mums and the carers, who work to earn cash then work again at home to keep families going. Haven’t we come a long way since Emmeline Pankhurst and Co? It was not until 1928 that all women over 21 got the vote. And 18-year-olds didn’t get it until 1969. The gender landscape has completely changed. But the battle for equality is not yet won. Look no further than the BBC gender pay gap row, the #metoo campaign and the row over the darts and F1 girls. It’s a work in progress, propelled by the courage of modern-day women speaking about their experiences, emboldened by the early heroines. The fight goes on – inspired by these women and more . . .
