Britain’s
first

be his own man over
immigration.
He distanced himself
from PM Theresa May’s
hardline policy.
Hinting at a more liberal approach, Mr Javid
insisted he will put “his

HOME STOP ROW
NEW Housing Secretary James
Brokenshire was embarrassed
last night as it emerged he
tried to block 60 new homes
in his constituency.
Old Bexley and Sidcup in
South East London was earmarked for up to 40 per cent
more homes in Sajid Javid’s
drive to build 300,000 houses
a year. The plan for 60 homes
eventually succeeded.
The
revelation
came
as
housing groups called for
action on the “biggest housing
emergency in decades”.
Mr Brokenshire’s job comes
week after a cancerous tumour

Expenses scandal peer

A TORY expenses scandal
peer dubbed “Lord Moat”
sparked fury last night after
leading an ambush to seize
control of Brexit negotiations.
By HARRY COLE
“This my Lords is a wrecker’s amendment. And I wish it ill.”
Lib Dem peer Lord Roberts sparked
uproar in the chamber by comparing
the proposed Bill to something out of
Nazi Germany.
He said: “My mind went back to Berlin in March 1933, when the Enabling
Bill was passed in the Reichstag. That
transferred democratic rights of the
parliament into the hands of one man.
His name was Adolf Hitler.”
Brexit Minister Steve Baker slammed
the “disgraceful, irresponsible rhetoric”.
Lib Dem peers said they were “in the
driving seat” over Brexit. Lord Newby
added it was “vital that Parliament, not
the Government, decides whether or not
any Brexit deal is acceptable”.
MPs will now vote on the amendment. Crossbench peer Lord MallochBrown, chairman of the pro-EU Best
for Britain campaign, said: “This feels
like a turning point. This is a massive
defeat for the Government.”

If MPs back him it will trigger a
constitutional crisis as the PM will
not have the final say on any deal.
Ex-minister Viscount Hailsham, who
as MP Douglas Hogg charged the taxpayer to clean the moat at his manor
house, put down a wrecking amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill.
Critics say it was designed to hamstring Theresa May by giving unelected
peers and MPs the chance to throw out
her Brexit deal and decide what happens next — even staying in the EU.
The House of Lords was branded a
“cosy cabal of Remain” after backing
the change 335 to 244.
Tory peer Lord Fairfax, who said it,
added: “This is designed to delay, frustrate and ultimately block Brexit.”
Lord Dobbs, creator of telly hit House
of Cards, said peers were trying to
“drive Brexit onto the rocks”. He added:

Former

Aidan will take his own life after

Shayne, 33, who joined Corrie in

“In my personal experience I’ve

“So for me, I just drew upon an
honest truth and how I would feel
in that situation.
“When you are in those moments
you can’t shy away. You either do it
with conviction or you don’t.”
In his final scenes, to be shown
next Monday, Aidan will subtly say
goodbye to unsuspecting friends and
family. He tells ex-fiancee Eva,
played by Catherine Tyldesley, that
he loves her and she is “better off
without him”. He later closes his

incident when he threatened to quit over pay.

BREAST DRUG HOPE
THOUSANDS of younger women with
one of the deadliest breast cancers may
benefit from a new drug, say experts.
Patients with triple negative cancer
who also had the BRCA gene mutation
were twice as likely to respond to carboplatin chemo as a standard form.
The aggressive cancers are most
common in women under 40. London’s
Institute of Cancer Research found
tumours shrank in 68 per cent of 376
patients. The drug also delayed disease
progression for seven months compared
with four for current treatments.
Breast Cancer Now, which co-funded
the trial, called it “a landmark step”.

Mr Jones told legal blog RollOnFriday that he was suspended last
June just a day after he rejected a
request from Lexlaw’s managing
director to reconsider his resignation
amid a salary dispute.
The lawyer said the spanking session had happened long before he
quit and claimed it was raised only
so Lexlaw would not have to pay
him for his notice period.
Mr Jones studied at Cambridge
from 1996 to 2000, gaining a firstclass degree in mathematics and a
special prize in astrophysics before
studying law. He joined Lexlaw in
October 2012 and specialised in corporate finance, before leaving last
year to become a freelance barrister.
On the row, Mr Jones said: “I had
a consensual BDSM relationship
with
another
employee,
which
included one brief incident in private
on work premises several months
before the disciplinary proceedings.
“I was appalled to find out that
my employer was monitoring my
personal communications over a period of at least several months.”
He claims the disciplinary action
was in “retaliation” for him handing
in his notice and “not a result of
the much earlier incident”.
A spokesman for Lexlaw confirmed
“inappropriate
workplace
activities” had taken place last year
involving a senior barrister.
They declined to comment further
other than to say: “The activities
that took place are as unacceptable
in our workplace as they would no
doubt be in any workplace.”

He has accused bosses of offering

2010, discriminated against on the
grounds of race with my salary.”
The BBC said: “We expect this
employment tribunal to be heard later
this year and are defending this claim.”
Mr Patka declined to comment.

SAJID REPLACES RUDD
It’s the l1st non-white in top govt job
best job
but full lSon of an immigrant bus driver
of risks
lNow tipped as a possible PM
By
NICK TIMOTHY
Ex-Home Office & No10 adviser
FOLLOWING Amber Rudd’s
resignation, Sajid Javid fully
understands the dangers of his
new job.
Like
other
departments,
the
Home Office makes laws and
policies, but unusually its officials
take countless sensitive decisions
about visas, citizenship, deportations and more. This is where the
political risk lies.
The new Home Secretary has
rightly promised to address the
Windrush scandal. This has seen
people with every right to be here
treated as illegal immigrants by
employers, landlords and the state
because they lack the right papers.
As the son of immigrant parents,
Javid could have been affected by
the scandal himself.
He needs to show his human
side and fix the problem quickly.
But he must not overreact. Lefties are using Windrush to attack
the “hostile environment” policies
that tackle illegal immigration.
Javid should defend the approach
robustly: it should be difficult
for illegal immigrants to rent
property, get a job and
open bank accounts.
If
anything,
Javid
must toughen up Britain’s defences against
illegal immigration.
And he needs to
develop a comprehensive
policy
to
control legal immigration too.
Britain
needs
migrants
with
the
talent and skills who
will benefit our economy,
but annual net migration —
which is the number of people
coming here minus those leaving
each year — is still running at a

NEW
Home
Secretary
Sajid Javid — the first
ethnic minority MP to
hold one of the four top
jobs in Government — has
vowed to stand up to
Theresa May on migration.
Mr Javid, the son of a
Pakistani
migrant
bus
conductor, yesterday insisted
that he would put “my own
stamp” on the Home Office.
And he attacked Mrs May’s
hostile environment policy on
illegal
immigrants,
introduced
when she was Home Secretary.
Last night ministers claimed he
would use his surprise promotion
as a springboard to succeed Mrs
May as Prime Minister.
Yesterday he was already using
the Tory power stance adopted by
David Cameron and Mrs May.
Mr Javid, 48, was summoned to
replace
Amber Rudd yesterday.

She quit after admitting
misleading MPs on deportation targets following
the Windrush scandal.

Home Secretary and For-
The son of
immigrants,

by Windrush
himself
‘He must ensure police
have powers they need’
That number must come down.
And a post-Brexit immigration
policy, which allows us to control
European immigration, is an urgent
priority.
So too is tackling crime. Overall,
crime is still lower than at any
time on record. But violent crime
is rising and knife crime is a
problem, especially in London.
Politicians should not interfere
with day-to-day policing, and political responsibility for policing in
London lies with the mayor, Sadiq
Khan. But Javid needs to ensure
the police have the powers they
need to keep us safe.
All this needs to be done while
we face a grave terror threat. This
is the invisible part of Javid’s new
job. He will work closely with
MI5’s chief, Andrew Parker, and
sign piles of warrants every day
that allow the police and spooks to
track organised criminals and terrorists using covert surveillance.
Tackling the extremism behind
the violence is also vital: as a
Muslim, Javid has shown already
he has the confidence to do that.
His workload will be immense,
his responsibilities awesome, and
24-hour police protection will feel
strange for a while.
But Javid has landed one of the
best jobs in government — the hard
work starts here.
Clashes . . . Mr Javid with the PM and in the Commons yesterday
eign Secretary. And senior Tories
say that puts him in prime position to take over at No10, uniting
a party torn apart by Brexit.
Mr Javid is said to be “on
manoeuvres” for a future leadership bid. Bookies have already
slashed the odds on him being the
next PM from 66/1 to just 5/1.
One minister told The Sun:
“Sajid
has
been
making
noises for a little while about
a leadership run, quietly
asking a few of us what his
chances would be and if we
might support him.
“The Home Office gives
him a massive platform,
and he already has an unbeatably
good back story. I would be
amazed if he doesn’t go for it
when the time comes to move
Theresa on, which will probably
be next summer.”
His appointment surprised many
in Westminster, as Mr Javid and
Mrs May have clashed in the
past over migrant students.
Aides said she promoted
him because he is “a details
man” with barrels of energy.
A senior Downing Street
figure said: “Being Home
Secretary means you need
a very sharp eye for detail
Resigned . . . Ms Rudd
and you have to be prepared to
get your hands very dirty. If you
look around the Cabinet, there
aren’t many who fit that bill.”
Addressing
MPs,
Mr
Javid
vowed to “do whatever it takes” to
end the Windrush scandal, where
ageing Caribbean migrants face
wrongful deportation.
Questioned over the need for a
new Brexit immigration policy, he
said:
“Every
department
I’ve
worked in I’ve almost certainly
been putting on my own stamp.”
Mr Javid hit out at taunts from
Labour’s shadow home secretary
Diane Abbott, who has Jamaican
parents, saying: “I am a second
generation migrant too. She doesn’t
have a monopoly on anger.”
He also rubbished the hostile
environment mantra, used by Mrs
May just last week to describe the
policy of making it harder for
illegals to prosper.
Mr Javid said: “It’s not a phrase
I’m going to use. It doesn’t represent the values of our country.”
He added: “It’s about action.”
Mr Javid previously challenged
Mrs May for the Tory leadership
in 2016, on a joint ticket with
Stephen Crabb. They were eliminated in the first round of voting.
Ms Rudd’s Cabinet exit has
slashed the number of women
around the top table to just five.
Mr Javid paid tribute to her
immense integrity yesterday.
She was also hailed by him as
an outstanding parliamentarian.

SAJID Javid’s life story is one
of the most exceptional the Conservative Party has seen.
Through hard graft and natural
wit, he’s gone from growing up
on a crime-ridden street in Bristol to the Home Office’s HQ on
Marsham Street in London.
He shared a two-bed flat with
his parents — first generation
Brits, immigrating from the Punjab in Pakistan — and four

HOME OFFICE
HUGH ‘FAULT’
A TOP Home Office civil servant was yesterday blamed for
costing Amber Rudd her job —
over a disastrous briefing at
the peak of the scandal.
Tories demanded immigration
and enforcement chief Hugh
Ind, below, be grilled over why
he told the ex-Home Secretary
there were no removal targets
before her Select Committee
appearance a week ago.
Damning emails seen by
The Sun show he told
Ms Rudd’s advisers there
were “no removal targets
for immigration enforcement officers, regional
or national”.
In memos sent to her
press team and “Windrush
Gold
Command”
he
added the Home Office only
had an “overall ambition” to
improve the effectiveness of
enforcement work.
The emails were sent last
Wednesday after Lucy Moreton
of the Border Force union told
MPs on the Home Affairs
Select Committee there were
targets. Challenged shortly afterwards, Ms Rudd denied this
and said: “That’s not the way
we operate.”
Furious Tory MPs last
night also questioned who
was
behind
leaks
of
sensitive documents that
led to Ms Rudd’s fall.
One senior Tory said:
“There is a big feeling
civil servants decided to
do her in.”

LABOUR’S immigration policy
was in tatters last night after
shadow Cabinet ministers contradicted each other over
deporting illegal immigrants.
Shadow trade secretary Barry
Gardiner told BBC Two’s Daily
Politics show he backed targets
for removing all illegals.
But in a car crash interview,
shadow home secretary Diane
Abbott refused eight times to
say what she would do when
quizzed by GMB’s Piers
Morgan. She finally said
there should be targets
for “deporting foreign
national prisoners”.
Remoan
revival
a threat
to No10
By
TREVOR KAVANAGH
Associate Editor
MOMENTS
after
Amber
Rudd quit as Home Secretary
she was being hailed as the
new leader of the Tories’
raucous Remoaners.
“We’ll give her a huge welcome
to our back benches,” tweeted
“Angry Anna” Soubry.
Note the word “our”. These
deluded Euro-zealots think they
represent the Tory party.
Ms Rudd, a resolute antiBrexiteer, might be tempted to
accept. If she does, she will be
dealing her party a second kick
in the guts — and stymying any
hope of a comeback.
The overwhelming majority of
Tory MPs, elected on a Brexit
manifesto,
support
the
2016
referendum vote explicitly to leave
the EU, its customs union and
single market.
Hardline Remainers represent a
tiny faction, yet they threaten to
bring down their own government
by
siding
with
opportunistic
Jeremy Corbyn, Scot Nats and
Lib Dem left-overs.
Ms Rudd is personally amiable
but, as she proved in Brexit
debates with Boris Johnson, has a
savage bite when roused.
She is certainly ambitious. She
would like to be PM.
Sabotaging Brexit and keeping
Britain in the EU in all but name
might now seem the only way she
can achieve her goal.
It would be a huge gamble. Her
self-inflicted resignation has damaged an already floundering government and left key immigration
policy in tatters.
Town hall elections are three
days away and, thanks to her, the
Windrush fiasco has given Labour
traction among ethnic voters.
Coupled with looming cliff-edge
votes on Brexit, her shift from
sacked minister to leader of a
rebel pack would be a blatant act
of disloyalty.
Theresa May has somehow survived a catalogue of catastrophes
— not least last year’s botched
election. But she is still fighting
for her life.
Without apparently unelectable
Mr Corbyn, Labour would be
miles ahead.
His
personal
ratings
have
crashed over his bizarre support
for Russia, Syria and Labour’s
anti-Jewish rabble.
But the Momentum surge that
snatched
away
Mrs
May’s
Commons majority is still a force
to be reckoned with — as Thursday’s polls are likely to prove.
With Brexit deadlines approaching crunch point, the PM cannot
afford to fight on all fronts.
Remoaners
might
see
this
moment of weakness as the time
to pounce with Amber Rudd at
their helm. That would be reckless to the point of treachery.
Brexiteers
representing
the
democratic will of 17million voters
would not stay silent.
A Tory civil war could yet hand
Britain over to its first truly
Marxist Prime Minister.

THE
SAYS
A smart move
SAJID Javid is energetic, intelligent and
focused. He is a surprising choice for
Theresa May as Home Secretary, given
their history, but an inspired one.
Resolving the Windrush scandal is his
first priority, then soaring violent crime.
And this son of Pakistani migrants
must steer Mrs May towards an immigration policy based more on the economy’s needs, not some random limit.
Mr Javid is better placed than most to
sort out the vast, shambolic Home
Office. And we welcome that top job
being occupied by a Minister so clear
that Brexit means nothing without
leaving the customs union.
Amber Rudd is an able politician and
a likeable woman who had a shocker of
a fortnight and was badly briefed. Her
vilification by Labour and its frenzied
trolls for political gain was grim.
So is their deliberate stoking of the
Windrush row to confuse two issues.
Those affected are legally here and
were appallingly mistreated by officials.
That is not the excuse Labour apparently seeks to go soft on ILLEGAL
immigration and stop deporting those
with no right to be in Britain.
As for Ms Rudd, we hope she resists
her Remainer instinct to defy Mrs May
in Commons votes on Brexit.
It would be political insanity — and could
destroy her Government and her party.
Lords’ shame
UNELECTED peers have become a cancer
eating away at our democracy.
Yesterday a disgraced Old Etonian
infamous only for billing taxpayers
£2,200 to clean his mansion’s moat led a
bid to negate the will of 17.4million voters. The Government MUST defeat it or
its negotiating strength will be crippled.
Brexit has shown the true colours of
this chamber of doddering has-beens,
rejects and stooges who now openly
admit they are out to halt Brexit.
Their expenses fiddling destroyed
public faith in politicians. This could be
the last nail in the coffin.
Britain will not stand meekly by and
watch these titled clowns usurp the biggest democratic mandate in our history.
How can they be so blind to the danger?
Zeal on housing
IT takes guts to accept a demanding Cabinet job weeks after life-saving surgery.
For that we admire James Brokenshire, new Housing Secretary. We’re
just not yet sure he’s the right man for it.
Housing doesn’t need a safe pair of
hands. The dire shortage of affordable
homes is robbing a generation of the
chance to buy, eroding faith in capitalism and bolstering Corbyn’s Marxists.
Mr Brokenshire tried to block just 60
new properties in his constituency. But
he is now going to have to tear up
archaic planning rules nationwide.
He’s an unlikely revolutionary. But this
role requires it.
2GM
BY PICKING JAVID, PM ACCEPTS SHE
NO LONGER DICTATES TO CABINET
IF everything had gone
right for Theresa May in
the past 12 months, Sajid
Javid would be sitting on
the back benches.
A year ago, close allies of
the
Prime
Minister
were
gleefully tipping him for the
chop
in
a
post-Election
reshuffle. But yesterday he
ascended to one of the great
offices of state.
What
makes
Javid’s
appointment so remarkable is
that Theresa May cares about
the Home Office — which she
was in charge of for six years
—
more
than
any
other
department and she and Javid
have not seen eye to eye over
the years.
If the Prime Minister was at
the peak of her powers, he
would not be the new Home
Secretary.
When Theresa May made
Amber Rudd Home Secretary,
it
was
on
the
implicit
understanding that she would
continue her legacy at the
Home Office.
Rudd accepted this trade —
and swallowed her own doubts
about several of Mrs May’s
policies.
This
approach
was,
ultimately, what did for her.
Javid, a far more independentminded politician, will not
repeat that mistake.
Indeed, no senior member of
the Cabinet offered the job
would now be prepared to
make the trade that Rudd did
back in 2016.
Mrs
May
simply
isn’t
powerful enough to demand
that kind of loyalty any more.
Rudd’s
departure
exposes
Mrs May in two ways.
First, the firebreak between
her and the Windrush scandal
has been removed. Any further
revelations about what has
gone wrong will end up on the
Prime Minister’s doorstep.
Second, it has shown how
Mrs May now has to reach out
in even her most senior
Cabinet appointments, promoting those who have clashed
with her in the past.
The troubling
demise of
May’s yes
ministers
IN . . . newly appointed Javid is all
smiles at Home Office yesterday
‘Javid will be his own
man at Home Office’
When the political Cabinet
met for the first time after
Mrs May’s Election disaster
last
year,
Javid
was
ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL in setting
out what was wrong with the
way she and her team had run
Downing Street.
The Prime Minister was left
in no doubt as to Javid’s
frustration with how her team
had undermined him.
But the reason why he was
briefed against is fascinating,
given his new job.
Javid’s offence was not to
kowtow to Mrs May.
At the height of the May
ascendancy, when she was the
most popular Prime Minister
since polling records began,
most ministers went along
with whatever she wanted,
whether they agreed with it or
not. Javid did not.
He argued ferociously against
what he saw as her antibusiness proposals.
He fought particularly hard
against her desire for tests for
foreign takeovers of British
companies.
In meetings he sided with
Chancellor Philip Hammond in
arguing that Britain shouldn’t
become like France, a country
where the government stopped
foreigners buying a yoghurtmaking company on national
interest grounds.
Mrs May now finds herself
presiding over a Cabinet where
ministers know they can push
their own positions with little
consequence.
So Jeremy Hunt and Gavin
Williamson
have
both
campaigned publicly for more
money for health and defence
respectively.
Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary
POWER
STRUGGLE
. . . Mrs May
yesterday
OUT . . . Rudd on Sunday, hours
before she was forced to quit
By JAMES FORSYTH
Boris Johnson has openly set
out the kind of Brexit he
wants, unafraid to get ahead of
the Prime Minister’s position.
David
Davis,
the
Brexit
Secretary, is now letting it be
known what the differences
are between his approach and
that of the Prime Minister’s
chief
adviser
on
the
negotiations, Olly Robbins.
If Javid was prepared to
stand up to Mrs May at the
height of her powers, what
will he do now?
He certainly won’t be her
patsy at the Home Office. He’ll
be determined to put his own
stamp on the department.
A more ruthless politician
than Amber Rudd, he won’t
feel any compunction about
breaking
from
the
Prime
Minister’s Home Office legacy
where necessary.
Why, then, has Mrs May
appointed him?
Well, I understand her initial
instinct was to consider Karen
Bradley, the Northern Ireland
Secretary, for the job.
Bradley is a May loyalist:
She was one of her junior
ministers at the Home Office,
an enthusiastic backer of her
leadership bid and is her most
reliable ally in the Brexit
inner Cabinet.
However, senior figures at
No10 persuaded the Prime
Minister
that
appointing
Bradley would look like she
was circling the wagons — that
it would project an image of
weakness, not strength.
With
a
growing
feeling
among the Cabinet that Mrs
May has retreated into the
Downing
Street
bunker,
listening more and more to
officials such as Olly Robbins
and less and less to ministers,
appointing a cipher to be
Home Secretary would have
caused dangerous levels of
anger and resentment. Mrs
May, to her credit, listened and
the decision to appoint Javid
was made.
His instincts on immigration
are different from Mrs May’s.
He doesn’t regard it as a
numbers game and is one of
the Cabinet ministers most
privately sceptical of the PM’s
aim to reduce immigration to
the tens of thousands.
If Mrs May was in a
stronger position, she would
have appointed someone more
prepared to defer to her views
on this subject than him.
Javid will be his own man
as Home Secretary, not the
Prime Minister’s. Mrs May,
who knows the Home Office
so well, will find that hard to
take at times.
But his appointment is a
recognition that she isn’t any
more in a position to dictate to
her senior ministers.

The Woking coroner was told
that in 2011 BMW had identified a
fault leading to complete electrical

In 2014 the Driver and Vehicle

But BMW fixed just 36,000 of the
affected cars and in 2016 convinced
the DVSA to drop its probe.
Ed Ramsay, on behalf of Mr

Mr Hill said of the fault: “This is
deemed not critical because the
driver is still able to steer the car
and brake.” The inquest continues.

though, was the group
dynamic and the
puncturing along the
way of some monstrous
old egos who set out on
this ITV adventure a
month ago.

being Bobby Crush, “a

receiving the response
“You’re a penis?”, Jess

being rumbled inside

teepee and a disgruntled/

snarling: “They should
use Su Pollard for waking

Which they might just
have to, if Last Laugh In

series.
Bring it on.
Smug legal drama
The Split made
me file a motion...
MONTHS ago, the idiots
who run BBC1’s drama
department heard writer
Abi Morgan pitch her
idea for a series about
“the
female-dominated
world
of
divorce
lawyers”.
But not a single word that
followed. Not even the bit
about “divorce lawyers”.
She
could’ve
told
them
she’d cast Zippy, George and
Bungle in the main roles and
they still wouldn’t have been
listening. By that point, it was
already “Go! Go! Go!” for The
Split, which succeeds in doing
the only thing the BBC really
cares about passionately these
days — politically correct boxticking — but fails in every
other respect, including the
most obvious one.
It’s the wrong subject. Even
those of us who’ve never
needed one instinctively hate
divorce lawyers, especially the
rich, right-on London variety.
So attempting to humanise them, in the
space of six episodes, is like setting off
up Mount Everest in a pair of flip-flops.
Suffice to say this one wandered off a
cliff before it even reached base camp.
What episode one offered us, though,
was an unlikely story about three sisters
all working as high-profile London
lawyers.
Fiona Button’s Rose is getting married,
Annabel Scholey’s Nina definitely isn’t
and Nicola Walker is a sanctimonious
pain in the rear called Hannah who’s got
the job of telling the others “Dad’s back”
after a 30-year absence.
“What does he look like?”
A lot like the bloke from Buffy The
Vampire Slayer, seeing as you ask, Nina,
which isn’t the only credibility issue with
the casting.
As well as refusing to believe Anthony
Head is their dad, I’m assuming none of
you believe any of those three are sisters,
let alone lawyers. You’re also probably

Clumsy casting wouldn’t matter so
much, obviously, if The Split had some
give-a-toss plots and a decent script.
It’s got neither, though, and if it’s not
drowning in baffling legalese it’s coming
across like one of Davina’s shampoo

“Hello, Hannah.” “Hello, Nina.”
“New hair?” “New job.”
It doesn’t end there, though. Any full

to
Apprentice and Celebrity Big
Brother housemate Andrew Brady.
Just weeks earlier Caroline, 38, had
dumped him amid cheating rumours
and concerns he was using her name
to boost his career.
Pals worry she has taken a major
gamble on Andrew, 27.
Just six months ago he told industry figures he was desperate for the
trappings of fame and planned to bag
a famous girl.
Her friends believe it is highly
unlikely the pair will ever make it
down the aisle — and certainly not in
the same year Caroline’s most famous
ex, Prince Harry, exchanges vows
with Meghan Markle.
A friend said: “Caroline is unquestionably happy with Andrew and
regards his proposal after just three
months of dating as incredibly
romantic. But there remain so many
question marks over him.
“He’s so desperate to be famous
and has already been found out once.
Known for cockiness,
not business acumen

she won in 2014
“The fact she forgave him was a
surprise, so you can only imagine
what the reaction was among her
friends when she broke the news
surrounding the engagement. There is
genuine concern.”
Yesterday his reputation was dealt a
fresh blow when former girlfriend
Rachael Rhodes said he planned to

Caroline

The radio DJ said: “The last time I
saw him he described our wedding,
told me how many kids we were
having and what colour their hair
would be. He told my mum what
ring he wanted to get me then, like
magic, poof!”
Caroline made her name in kids’
TV before hosting ITV2 spin-offs of
flagship shows I’m A Celebrity . . . Get
Me Out Of Here and The X Factor.
She stepped up to present The X
Factor’s main show alongside Olly
Murs in 2015, having won the BBC’s
Strictly Come Dancing in 2014.
Now she hosts Love Island, which
last year became a surprise ratings
winner and cultural phenomenon.
Her casting seemed perfect given
Caroline’s chequered love life, which
includes a headline-grabbing hook-up
with another famous Harry — One
Direction’s Styles. Some labelled her
a cougar in 2011 for dating the singer,
who is 14 years younger than her.
She has also had romances with
music manager Jack Street, who
guided Sam Smith’s rise to the top,
and artist Blue Logan.
Caroline met Andrew in February,
shortly after he was evicted from
Celebrity Big Brother.
He had been desperate to appear
on the show following his 2017 stint
on The Apprentice. On the BBC1

He was “fired” in week eight, not

Once inside the house, Andrew
was accused of having a “showmance” with Shane Jenek, better
known as drag performer Courtney
Act, in a bid to win over voters.
The insider added: “Alarm bells
began to ring when Andrew openly
enquired how to use the paparazzi
to his benefit, which was so brazen
many people thought he was
joking. He was desperate to stay
relevant after his stint in the
house, fearful he would just
disappear like so many reality
stars who appear on Celebrity
Big Brother.
“Andrew also embarked on
a campaign to attract
more social media followers but made it
clear he was not ‘prepared to pay for them’.”

Like many reality stars, he made
cash and spread his name touring
nightclubs, even posing in selfies
for money.
It was around this time he met
Caroline in a bar in East London.
They soon became inseparable,
giving the media hints something
was going on by posting nearidentical videos on Instagram.
When their relationship became
public and pictures of Andrew and
Caroline more frequent, the Love
Island host smelled a rat.
A friend said: “Caroline had
managed previously to keep her
dates relatively low-key. She was
rarely spotted out and about.
“But now her every move with
Andrew was being captured. She
even woke up one morning, opened
her curtains and saw photographers
outside. She’d never had that
problem before.
“When she saw pics of Andrew
leaning out of a window topless, for
all the world to see, she confronted
him about it.”
The couple split briefly, Caroline
influenced by girls’ claims they had
been intimate with Andrew during
his nightclub appearances.
The friend added: “Andrew was
so desperate for these stories to be
denied, he requested that these
girls were asked which part of his
body he had pierced to prove they
had been with him.
“Sometimes he was let off. Girls
said his nipples but didn’t mention
the ring in his c***.”
After a make-or-break trip to his
native Cheshire, away from prying
eyes, Caroline decided to give
Andrew another chance.
Suddenly, nobody was capturing
their every move and the kissand-tell stories stopped. Andrew
culled thousands of glamorous
followers on Instagram.
So has Caroline tamed him?
And has Andrew put an end to her
losing streak with men?
Those who know the telly star
best pray both are true.
A pal added: “Everyone just
wants the best for Caroline. She’s a
hugely popular figure, not only
within her friendship group but in
work circles too.
“Lots of people simply want
what’s best for her and don’t want
her to experience any heartache.
“They all want to see her get
married,
settle
down
and
be
happy.”
Hopefully the Apprentice also-ran
will end up being Caroline’s perfect
candidate after all.

LILY ALLEN has finally admitted
what we have all known for years
– her music is rubbish.
She says she hated her
dreadful 2014 album Sheezus and
couldn’t stand performing it live
because she was so bored of the
painful songs and the people she
was on the road with.
Lily, below, explained: “I said
to the record label, ‘I am not
doing any more promotion. I
don’t care about this album
any more’.
“There were meant to be,
like, two more
singles and I was
like, ‘No. I don’t
want to release any
more’.
“I just did not
want to be doing it.
“I even felt really
isolated in the
shows with the
audience as well,
as the band I had I
did not like.
“I did not like the people. They
were not listening to me when I
said I wanted things to change.”
I’m sure the feeling was
mutual.
Speaking on GEORGE EZRA’s
podcast, she added: “It was like, ‘I
don’t want to be in f***ing
Wisconsin on my own, playing
music that I am not really into with
these people that don’t really care
about me and I don’t care about.
What the f*** am I doing here?’”
I have been wondering what
she’s doing here for years, too.

TROUBLED STAR’S KNICKER-FLASHING MARKS END OF TOUR
SHERIDAN SMITH sparked
fears of a meltdown as she
brought down the curtain on
her car-crash tour the only
way she knew how . . . with
two hours of knicker-flashing
and obscenities.
The troubled star threatened to
get naked on stage, opened her
legs to expose her underwear and
told the audience that she was
“bonkers” at the show on Sunday.
And that was before the interval.
The actress and singer — who
played singer and Blind Date host
CILLA BLACK in a 2014 ITV drama
— told the Cardiff crowd: “This is
so new to me, because obviously
I’m used to playing roles and hiding
behind characters, so bear with
me. I feel naked right now. I will
get naked — but in the second half.”
And she almost did.

teased: “You can see my Spanx,
can’t you?”
Uncrossing her legs, she added:
“Sorry — you can see them now.”
Sheridan, who quit stage show
Funny Girl in 2016 after battling
stress

also
confessed to the audience she was
“nuts” in a rant at a punter.
She said: “We’re all a bit nuts.

‘You’re bonkers, but all the best

Cardiff gig marked the end of a
nine-date tour which also included
a show in London, far right, and
Edinburgh, where she was said to
have urged the crowd to get drunk,
flashed her boobs and given out
her hotel room number.
Barred from hotel
Sheridan didn’t hold back on
Sunday either, again calling out
details of her accommodation to
punters during the gig at the
Wales Millennium Centre.
It is not the first time her wild
behaviour has sparked concerns.
Sharing an anecdote about filming
the
Cilla
drama
in
Liverpool in 2013, she revealed she
was barred from a hotel after
bringing “half the club” back to
her room. She said: “We’d just
started filming. We had to be
there for months. We might have
gone out and had a bit of a sesh,
and decided it’d be fun to bring
half the club back to the hotel and
play Blind Date — as you do.
“This went on for hours until the
phone rang. It was the manager
and I’m barred for life from that
hotel. So I spent the whole shoot
in a hotel on my own.”
Earlier in her tour, Sheridan
admitted she “lost her mind” during the past two years and blamed
men for sending her “crazy”.
Let’s hope she is getting plenty
of support from those around her
to make sure it doesn’t happen
again.

don’t tell them what you buy. Put the
food into the more expensive packaging you already have. It may be a
sneaky move but it’s one that will
work a treat.
Bulk buying is a good move to
save cash. You can pick up
cheaper toilet roll, laundry detergent
and many other items online. Try
looking at Groupon or Amazon for
their current deals.
Plan your family meals. Not
only can you track how much
you plan to spend, but you can
use similar ingredients to cut
down on food waste. If you
have fussy kids, get them
involved as they will be more
inclined to eat food if they
have a hand in making it.

A GIRL was badly burnt

Anysia Gardener, four,
was in a swimsuit when

Mum Charissa Chapman, 24, said: “She was

Anysia was taken to a

One shoplifting video, viewed
202,125 times, showed how to
line a bag with foil and clingfilm so that security tags did
not trigger alarms. It stated:
“This is very effective. Now
you can go

Helker, a German who
started
collecting
in
the 1980s and got the title
in 2004.
James,
who
studied
tourism at college, hopes
to smash the record by
early 2019.
The lad, from Huddersfield, West Yorks, said: “I
have always been a railway enthusiast. I was
obsessed with Thomas
the Tank Engine so it
spiralled from there.”
James — in a wheelchair since he was two
with an undiagnosed condition — collects the tickets
from
personal

to 5,000 a day from

his local station.
Killed by
Triumph
A KEBAB delivery driver got his car skewered after parking on top of a meter.
He lost control of the Peugeot 307 while
reversing and his bosses posted a picture
on social media.
Oz, the owner of Oz’s Pizza and Kebab
House in Dawlish, Devon, said he had “limited experience with automatic vehicles”.
Or he could be just shish at parking . . .
A CAR enthusiast died
after his vintage motor
rolled on top of him as
he worked on it.
Adrian Stock, 75, was
trapped under the 1951
Triumph Herald with leg
and chest injuries.
The retired engineer
was flown to hospital
from his home in Brecon,
South Wales, but died
nine days later.
A neighbour said: “The
car is his pride and joy.
He keeps it in his garage
and works on it.”

STANDING in the fierce
heat, with chains cutting
into his flesh, Arthur’s
only source of water is
too far away to reach.
But even if he was closer, the
desperately
thirsty
elephant
would not dare move.
By ROBIN PERRIE
T
he life of a vet is incredibly varied,
and this week has been no
exception. In fact it’s been a real
rollercoaster of emotions.
No matter how long I do this job, I am
faced daily with situations where I don’t
know what the outcome will be, and
those cases can be the hardest.
Julian [Norton, Wright’s co-star on TYV]
and I have, quite literally, treated all
creatures great and small this week –
from tiny hamster Christopher Nibbles to
Dobbie the llama.
I was called out to Richard Todd’s farm
to help deliver a calf. It was a tricky
business and let’s
just say that it didn’t
have a glamorous
ending for me.
I also paid a I WAS CALLED

their farm, getting up at the crack of
dawn to tend to their cows. They are true
Yorkshire characters.
Julian has been busy at the Llama
Trekking Centre, where he was reunited
with Dobbie, who he helped a while
ago. But I’m not sure Dobbie was too
pleased to see Julian this time. Tune in
tonight to find out why.
One of my more difficult cases was
Dachshund Bella, who was brought in
with a swollen tummy. Bella is the muchloved dog of owner Amy, who was very
worried. I had to get to the bottom of
what was wrong, which, unfortunately,
required surgery.
Find out how Bella and the other
animals got on in this evening’s episode
of The Yorkshire Vet.

The Yorkshire Vet

A BRIT motorcyclist is
fighting for life in Brazil
after losing a leg in a
horror drink-drive smash.
Christopher Peck, 34,
was a fortnight into a
dream
South
America
trip when the drunk’s car
slammed into him.
Doctors amputated his
leg at the scene. He was
later put in an induced
coma with brain swelling
and kidney failure.
Ex-Navy sailor Christopher,
of
Workington,
Cumbria, works as a
fisheries protection officer
in the Falklands.
The crash happened on
April 20 close to the
border with Bolivia.
Local media reported
the drink-driver, 32, had
been out of jail for only
four days after a similar
offence. He was not hurt.
Chris’s
sister
Natalie
said: “He is such a loving
lad. It is devastating.”
Steel in a
meat pie
A PIE company has been
fined £25,000 for selling
a chicken and bacon
slice containing a steel
plate that had been put
there deliberately.
Peter’s Food Services
stuck the plate into the
£1.50 slice to check metal
detectors were operating
correctly in their bakery.
But it was lost in the
check — and found in the
slice by a customer.
Council officers visited
the factory in Bedwas,
South Wales, and found
shortfalls in procedures.
The firm admitted placing unsafe food for sale
and was also told to pay
£500 to the customer by
Newport magistrates.
Nott film
landmark
A BOOK shop constantly
mistaken as the one in
romcom Notting Hill has
put up a sign telling film
fans to go away.
The Book & Comic Exchange, which has a blue
door like the one in the
film, can hold only a few
customers at a time but
was mobbed by tourists.
Fed-up staff at the
West London store put
up a sign stating: “This is
not the shop from the
rubbish film Notting Hill.
“So don’t ask! We don’t
know where it is either!”
A fan on Instagram
wrote: “A brilliantly angry
sign.” The Travel Book
Shop that featured in the
1999 movie shut in 2011.

A set of unused tickets
for every Euro 96 match
found in a suitcase in
Stoke-on-Trent could get
£150 at auction in May.
YOUNG: Elephants are taken from
the wild as babies and put in secret
training camps where they are
taught to fear their mahouts (trainers)
KRAAL: A ‘crushing cage’ made
from wood that acts as a tiny prison
for elephants. They are kept in here
for months, unable to move
PAJAN: The term for breaking the
spirit of an elephant by beating,
starving, chaining and torturing it
into complete submission
ANKUSH: Wooden stick with a metal
hook, designed for beating. It is rested
against the elephant – if it drops to
the floor, the animal is beaten
If he did, he would receive a
vicious beating from the man standing
beside him brandishing an ankush, a
fearsome wooden stick topped with a
sharp metal hook.
Exhausted and stressed, Arthur sways
his head from side to side — looking to
the passing tourists as if they can come
to his rescue.
But when a group stops to take a
look, all they do is pose for selfies.
The Sun is in India on a mission to
uncover the suffering of elephants
which are beaten, broken and chained
up for decades to pull in tourists.
With us is Harry Potter actress
Evanna Lynch, who admits that until
recently she would have been one of
those travellers happily snapping pictures for an exotic Instagram post.
The 26-year-old, who played Luna
Lovegood in the wizard movies, said:
“Just a few years ago I dreamed of
going to India and riding an elephant.
But then I couldn’t have imagined the
abuse the elephants suffer.
“Now I know, and I think everyone
else needs to see this and know too.”
Arthur is one of 50 elephants kept in
pain and terror at an “elephant temple”
in Guruvayur, in Kerala, South India.
It is a popular destination for
thousands of the more than 850,000
Brits who visit India each year.
Evanna, who is also an avid animal
rights campaigner, continued: “I have
been so shocked. We saw one elephant
chained up — it couldn’t move at all.
Wounds are covered
over with grey paint
“It had a stick resting on its head so
if it moved the stick would fall. If it
did the trainer would give it a beating.
“I asked the man standing there how
long the elephant might have been
there, and he told me probably his
whole life. That is unfathomable.”
India’s elephants are snatched from
their mothers in the wild when they
are babies and taken to secret “training
camps”. Here they are beaten, starved
and tortured into complete submission
in a process called “pajan”.
The first step is for the beasts to be
forced into a kraal or “crushing cage”.
This is a wooden structure designed
to keep the elephant so tightly caged it
cannot move — not even to turn
around, nod its head or sit down.
Trainers then starve the animal and
keep it awake for days on end.
Exhausted and on the brink of death,
the elephants are then beaten with
wooden weapons, specially designed to
inflict as much pain as possible.
This happens every day for at least
six months, but can go on for years.
When finally their spirit is so broken
that they let their trainers ride them,
they are deemed safe enough to be
rented out or sold to tourist attractions
and temples across India.
Nearly half of the elephants die from
this abuse, and of those who survive to
be sold, another ten per cent die within
a year due to stress. But their suffering
is a tourism goldmine.
Elephants can be rented out for rides,
festivals or to temples for anything
from £34 to £1,600 a day — in a
country where the average labourer
only makes £10 a day.
While much of the most violent
training takes place out of sight of
tourists, the brutal reality of elephants’
lives is far from hidden.
When we arrive at Kerala’s Kochi
airport
a
giant
elephant
statue
welcomes us, complete with chains
around its feet.
Within half an hour of being on the
road we are overtaken on a motorway
by a rusty truck carrying an elephant
tied down by chains, wires and rope.
Seconds later another passes.
They are being transported from
camps across the country to one of
India’s famous elephant festivals, Thrissur Pooram, in Thrissur, Kerala.
We are on our way to the same
event, where we find more than 90 ele-

been through, Evanna
and I travel two hours north into deep
forest to the village of Kodanad, where
our guide tells us there is a training
camp. After some careful negotiations
with guards we manage to enter, posing as tourists who “just want to see
the elephants”. Inside we see the terrible, stark reality of their lives.
Chained to tree stumps, they are in
appalling condition.
Autoor is 16 years old and we find
her swaying her head from side to side,
over and over again — a sign of huge
distress.
It is impossible not to want to comfort her, but before we get too close a
trainer approaches and whacks her
with a stick, she immediately stops
swaying, instead standing completely
still. We quickly move on until we find
a clearing in the forest. It is here we
find the saddest of sights — a lone
elephant locked in a crushing cage.
The wooden cell stands so tall at first
it is almost impossible to make out the
elephant stuck inside.
‘This is every single
tourist elephant’s fate’
Then the trainers arrive and begin
hitting and stabbing the elephant
through the cage with large sticks.
It is too much to bear and, with our
guide getting increasingly anxious about
our pictures being discovered, we
quickly leave.
I ask our guide, is this how all ele-
phants are trained, or are some tamed
more humanely?
His response is chilling: “This is
every single tourist elephant’s fate. The
only reason they obey is with fear.
They have been broken.”
Duncan McNair, founder of charity
Save The Asian Elephants (STAE) is
campaigning for a law banning UK
holiday firms and tour companies
advertising trips for these sorts of
encounters with animals.
He says: “Elephants are some of the
most intelligent, emotional creatures in
the world and the abuse they suffer is
unimaginable.
“Those horrors ensure the rest of
their life is lived in fear.
“I’m confident that if any tourist ever
saw this, or even a small aspect of it,
they would be appalled.”
With tears in her eyes, Evanna said:
“When
people
who
have
ridden
elephants in the past or visited these
places see this article, I don’t want
them to feel guilty — they were misled
by the irresponsible tourist industry.
“What we need to do is to put that
guilt into action and not visit these
places in future.
“I’d read a lot about the abuse elephants suffer but seeing it up close has
given me the ability to speak from my
heart and tell others that we can make
a change by not spending our money
and posting these tourist images.”

TWO months ago I revealed
that ITV comedy Benidorm
was set for the chop, above
– only to face a barrage of
abuse online from the show’s
writer DERREN LITTEN.
This week he was forced
to admit what I knew all
along, that the show has
been axed after a decade
on TV. He wrote on Twitter:
“Crazy to think Wednesday
will be the last episode of
Benidorm. I created the
series over 11 years ago . . .
“It’s difficult to think what
else there is to do. Thank
you for watching.”

A telly source said:
“Viewers will enjoy seeing Jeremy squirming as

it’ll be using his genuine

is contestants can bank

In a radio interview on
Sunday night, she said: “I
think if I tried to get the same
fee as Simon, I don’t think I’d
manage that – because there
is an argument for people,
whether they’re male or
female, who are valued more.
“GLENN CLOSE, in a
movie, isn’t going to get the
same as if I was in the movie
with her. There’s the argument
and the reverse argument –
and I think that stands.
“Simon is more important to
them than I am and that’s a
fact. I’ve never complained
about the money, I’m just
lucky to have the gig after 12
years still.”
It’s a refreshing point of
view that will no doubt please

Husband had a
tit-for-tat affair
Dear Deidre
I HAD sex with my
husband’s
best
mate
during the early days of
our relationship. After 12
years my husband has
now got his revenge.
We are both 37, we married ten
years ago and have two girls aged
ten and six. We had only been
dating for a few months when I
stupidly had this fling with his
so-called mate, who he shared a
flat with. The friend was two years
older than us.
He came on to me when my
husband — who was then my boyfriend — was at work.
I knew it was wrong but I fell
for the attention he gave me. One
day we had sex when we were
alone in the flat and it carried on
for a few weeks.
Then one day my boyfriend
came home early from work and
caught us in the act. He took it
tough but he forgave me, his mate
found somewhere else to live and
we got over it. I thought it was
done and dusted and it has never
been mentioned again — until now.
I planned a party to celebrate

our tenth wedding anniversary. I
drank lots of prosecco at the do
and I can’t remember everything
that happened but I caught my
husband and my best friend
snogging in the bathroom.
I know I completely lost it. I
screamed at them and I think I
may have hit her. I finally fell
asleep and when I woke, my husband was sitting beside me crying.
He said it had been going on for
six months and that I should forgive him as he once forgave me.
He blamed me for his fling. He
said it was because I had made
him paranoid that he wasn’t good
enough. I told my friend I never
want to hear from her again and
she has not been in touch.
I find it hard even to be near
my husband and we are sleeping
in separate rooms.
I know my kids are noticing
something is wrong. I am confused
too. If he wanted her, why hasn’t
he left me, now the secret is out?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t buy into him
putting all the blame for his affair on
you and what happened in the past.
You have had ten years of marriage
and two daughters since then.
Clearly he doesn’t want to break up
his home and be with your “friend”. He
is sorry and wants you to forgive him.
Tell him that can only work if he is
willing to talk about what really lay
behind his cheating, as it is going to be
recent issues in your relationship, not
old history.
If you love him deep down, suggest
couple counselling, where you can
both speak freely in confidence and
raise the painful issues you are not
speaking about right now.
My e-leaflet Cheating – Can You Get
Over It? explains how you can. Try to
get yourselves back into the same bed
as soon as possible even if you are not
ready to have sex with him yet.

Dear Deidre
MY partner has left me
because she discovered I
help my daughter out with a
weekly allowance. She says it
goes against her principles.
I am 56, she is 53, and we

years after meeting online.
We seemed perfect for one
another. We were discussing
finances and buying a home
together when I mentioned I
give my daughter £25 a week
to help with living costs.
My daughter is a single
parent, doesn’t drink or
smoke but runs out of money.
My grandson is only four and
my daughter hasn’t been able
to find part-time work.

She is the woman of my

your partner learned she
had to take care of herself
as no one else would. Now
she feels resentful.
Help your daughter as
long as it feels right to you
but ask your partner to

this. Hopefully you find the
gulf between you isn’t as
wide as it feels to her.

PLAYING snooker with his
mates down the club is more
important to my husband
than taking me out or visiting
family and friends.
He is 45, I am 35 and our
12-year marriage has had its
ups and downs. He goes out
with the lads at least three
times a week and most
weekends. He says I should
go alone if I want to go out.
We have no children.
He started losing interest
in sex last year. He says he’s
past it yet he can be out until
all hours with his mates and
usually comes home the
worse for wear.
He makes it all my fault,
though, by saying that sex is
all that’s important to me.
I’ve moved in with my sister
but I can’t stop crying. He
doesn’t even seem that
bothered I’ve gone.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: I think
this is more about alcohol
than snooker. His behaviour
comes across like that of an
addict, and too much
alcohol would tie in with him
losing his sex drive too.
To settle your own mind,
suggest you two meet to
talk about whether your
marriage can be saved.

on as they are, accept
you’re best apart from him.

CHILCOTT
BRIDE’S DASH FROM RECEPTION TO GIVE BIRTH
AS new bride Abbie Green
was enjoying her wedding
reception, the celebrations
were suddenly cut short –
when her waters broke.
The 22-year-old had known it
would be a close call — she was
due to give birth the week before
her marriage to tree surgeon Rob,
25. But baby Freddie had been in
no hurry to arrive.
Abbie says: “I’d planned to walk
down the aisle days after becoming
a mum, but when I passed my due
date and there was still no sign of
the
baby,
I
realised
I’d
be
waddling down the aisle very
heavily pregnant.
“At first it felt a bit daunting,
but I was so happy to show off my
bump and marrying Rob was the
most important thing.”
She adds: “We’d been trying for
a baby for so long. But when the
doctor announced the due date was
October 8, 2017, I was nervous.
We’d booked our wedding for
October 13. But I love Rob and I
wanted to tie the knot as planned.”
After three miscarriages in three
years, Abbie had begun to think
her dreams of becoming a mum
may not come true.
When Rob proposed in July 2015,
it was a welcome distraction.
Abbie, of Stow-market, Suffolk,
says: “I was over the moon. We go
on holiday to Hemsby in Norfolk
every year and we were walking
along the beach, like on any other
holiday, only this time Rob got
down on one knee.
“I didn’t hesitate to say yes and
couldn’t wait to start planning the
wedding. I still longed for a family
but the wedding helped us both to
relax about our baby plan.
“We did keep trying, alongside
planning the wedding, but for two
years nothing happened.
“After our third miscarriage I
was referred to a specialist
clinic. They were amazing.
“When
the
doctor
announced I was pregnant,
it
was
like
all
my
Christmases had come at
once.” But there were
By LYNSEY CLARKE and
HARRIET BULLOUGH
new worries when Abbie was told
her due date. The couple chose to
stick to the original plans but to
scale back. Abbie says: “We’d
wanted a big white wedding but
decided to make it more babyfriendly. We kept the arrangements
for our 150 guests the same but
opted for a quieter reception.
“We also planned to spend our
wedding night with our new baby,
and put off a honeymoon until
later in the year.”
Abbie’s pregnancy went smoothly
but she was faced with the
prospect of walking down the aisle
at 40 weeks pregnant.
‘Rob sprang into action’
They married at Stowmarket
Register Office then were driven to
the reception nine miles away at
Chamberlin Hall in the village of
Bildeston.
She says: “The reception was
brilliant and everyone was having
a blast. But at 11pm I felt really
funny. I thought I was going to
wet myself and dashed for the loo.
“But as I rushed off, water just
gushed everywhere. I was gobsmacked. We’d joked all night
about the baby arriving, and
suddenly it was.
“Everyone just stopped, no one
knew what to do.
“But Rob and my family sprang
into action and I was bundled into
our car which was still covered in
ribbons. I was still wearing my
wedding dress and mascara was
Love,
honour
...and
a baby!
running down my face. I can only
imagine what I looked like.
“The nurses’ faces said it all
when I arrived at the hospital. It
must have been quite a sight. I
couldn’t wait to be a wife and
mother — but I hadn’t expected it
all the same day.”
Within hours of arriving at the
hospital in Ipswich, the new bride
gave birth to her son at 5.35am.
Abbie says: “I thought it would
take hours, but Freddie wasn’t
waiting for anyone. I didn’t even
have time to take my veil and
tiara off. Freddie was born in
the early hours of the next
morning, and he was just
perfect.
“My little boy weighed a
whopping 9lb 1oz. It was
overwhelming, but such
an amazing feeling to
finally meet him.”
Now Freddie is six
months old, and Abbie
is settling into married
life and motherhood.
She
says:
“I
wouldn’t have had it
any other way.
Going
into
labour
on
our wedding
day
made
it
much
more
special.
“I

TOO GOOD
TO BE BREW
WE are a
nation of tea
drinkers, sinking
165million cups a day.
That’s good news as it
is good for us too.
CLARE O’REILLY
reveals how a cuppa
can help health.
CHAMOMILE TEA HAS
ANTIMICROBIAL BENEFITS: It has
long been known to promote sleep,
but the flower-based brew also has
antimicrobial benefits, which means it
contains agents that can kill bacteria
and fungal infections.
BLACK TEA
INCREASES LIFE EXPECTANCY:
Studies involving more than 850,000
participants in the US found drinking
three cups a day reduced risk of heart
disease by 27 per cent, cardiac death
by 26 per cent and stroke by 18 per cent.
BLACK TEA LOWERS RISK OF
DEPRESSION: A study that looked at
the findings of 11 previous reports
from China, covering 23,000 people,
found that drinking three cups of
black tea a day reduced the risk of
depression by 37 per cent.
GREEN TEA REDUCES RISK OF
LIVER DISEASE: A combined study of
more than 800,000 found green-tea
drinkers are less likely to have chronic
liver disease. It’s not known what
compounds help, but liver cancer and
cirrhosis rates fell too.
PEPPERMINT TEA CONTAINS
ANTI-TUMOUR
COMPOUNDS: This is
often linked with aiding
digestion. However, US
research found it also
contains anti-allergenic
compounds and is packed
with antioxidants, as well
as anti-tumour properties .
GREEN AND
BLACK TEA
REDUCE
BLOOD
PRESSURE:
Eleven trials
across the
globe, which
examined more
than 800
people, found
green and black
tea reduced levels
of low-density
lipoprotein, also
known as bad
cholesterol.
BLACK TEA REDUCES
DIABETES RISK: Analysis of
15 studies from the US,
Europe and Asia with more
than 500,000 participants
found that drinking two
cups of black tea a day cut
the risk of developing
diabetes by 4.6 per cent.
BLACK TEA
REDUCES
DEMENTIA RISK:
A study from
Singapore found
drinking three or
more cups of
black tea every
day meant
participants were
50 per cent less
likely to show early
signs of dementia
compared to a
group who

FEELING VIBE
FOR FESTIVALS
By KRIS HALLENGA
IT is pretty hard to get into the summer
festival spirit when the weather can’t
make up its mind about the seasons.
I am enjoying the bluebells in my
garden (come on, I’m in my thirties
now) from the comfort of my centrally
heated house. It’s ridiculous.
But that doesn’t mean plans don’t
have to be laid for the upcoming
festival season – and we are once again
preparing for fun-filled boob chats
across the UK.
Belinda the Boobmobile will be
coming out of hibernation to provide
festival revellers with information that
could save their lives. Win-win.
Frankly, not even the weather would
deter us after having experienced some
of the wettest weekends in the past.
Most young folk are happy to party and
live it up in a field, even if their tent is
swimming away.
And that means the team need to get
on board, too. I say that with slight glee
as I actually no longer take part in the
summer boob tour.
But you can’t keep me away from a
soggy field entirely. The twin and I are
taking our coffee and cake van to a
couple of Cornish festivals this summer.
It’s a parallel universe to be chatting
bundts (our German-style cakes), not
boobs. But that doesn’t mean people
won’t bring up the subject of breasts,
despite us not being there for that.
Sense of pride
BEST
FOR
holiday
essentials
STRIPPING to your
swimwear can be
daunting, but River
Island has bikinis
and swimsuits with
mesh lining that act
as shapewear by
sucking you in and
smoothing lumps
and bumps. With
beach dresses,
bags, shades and
sandals too, you’ll
soon sort your
suitcase.
AFTER
launching its
first curve
collection in
January, M&S
now stocks up
to size
32 and is your
port of call
for all the
essentials.
With clever
details and
comfortable
fabrics, you
can pick up a
classic trench,
shirts, satin
trousers and
must-have
mules as key
summer
staples.

It’s both surreal and lovely to have
people offering gratitude and loveliness
about CoppaFeel! They might have
been following our journey for a while,
recognised me from my documentary
or were readers of this column.
No matter how far removed I am from
anything CoppaFeel! related, I will never
let go of that ginormous sense of pride.
I still get to organise our annual
music festival, Festifeel, in London. We
are once again taking over the House of
Vans in Lambeth on October 6.
And with the help of Fearne Cotton at
the music helm and comedian Jayde
Adams sorting the comedy acts, we put
together a killer line-up.
I love working with Fearne because
we both get so excited about acts.
It is like organising your very own
perfect festival, with the added bonus
that we raise heaps of money for
CoppaFeel! and get to tell even more
people to check their boobs.
It’s bloomin’ hard to put together,
which is why I’m spending far too much
time in my PJs, stuck to my laptop.
But it’s all worth it, especially if you
lot come and enjoy the day.
We will be announcing acts over the
coming months and we are selling
early-bird tickets. So get your mitts on
those at festifeel.com.

The page where you tell Britain what you think
IT is ridiculous that Amber Rudd,
pictured, has been forced to resign
as Home Secretary.
Her opposite number, Diane
Abbott, is still hanging in there
despite showing she has a tenuous
grip on reality and can’t even add
up. I’m sure most British people
want deportation targets and for
the Government to stick to them.

I CANNOT believe ABBA
are
back
together
and
recording two new songs. I
hope the tracks are just as
good as they were in the
Seventies and Eighties. Welcome producers, let’s have our “dear
old Corrie” back. We need it.
back, ABBA.

THANK you, Lorraine, for the
article on Corrie in Saturday’s
Sun. I am one of the real “oldtimers”
who
have
watched
Coronation Street since day one.
I always enjoyed the humour
of many of the characters
but sadly it’s gone in
favour
of
gritty
storylines.
Every
day,
the
news
is
full
of
horrors. Please, new
THERE’S no doubt Donald Trump’s
tub-thumping about nuking North
Korea had the desired result.
Kim Jong-un’s peace summit
with South Korea’s Moon Jae-in
would never have happened but
for
Trump’s
threats,
as
crazed as they seemed.
Love him or loathe him,
Trump, pictured, is a vital
ally for Britain.

Brexit traitors
insult us all
IT is disgraceful
that MPs, particularly Tory MPs,
are ignoring the
electorate
and
pursuing their own Brexit
agendas.
£50
LETTER
They think they know better
and insult us all by insisting that
we stay in a customs union and
single market, which would, of
course, leave us at the mercy of
the EU dictatorship.
Theresa May needs to knock
them into line. The same applies
to the unelected cronies in the
House of Lords.
GEOFF GREEN
Nottingham
MOST British people require
politicians to do just two things:
Honour the referendum and have
the backbone to carry it out. Parliament seems full of people who
only wish for fame or to line
their pockets.
If the Prime Minister goes back
on this, the Tories will not see
power for a very long time.
ALAN BYRNE
Ripley, Derbys
IF these jumped-up politicians
want riots and civil unrest, just
keep on as they are — going
against democracy and the will of
the people — and wait for it to
kick off.
Theresa May, you have nothing
to fear. You have more than
17million people on your side.
JOHN RYCROFT
Leeds
THOSE who are campaigning to
derail Brexit should be dealt with
severely.
If the rebels don’t like the idea
of being outside the EU then let
them relocate to the European
mainland.
Shame on the unelected, antidemocratic, self-important peers.

IF selling Wembley Stadium
means England playing fixtures
up and down the country, I am all
for that. Give football fans a
chance to see them play near
their region.
ANDY K, Hereford
IF Soubry and Co somehow stop
Brexit, l will be livid. I haven’t
been angry for years. Civil war
will happen if you take
democracy off people.
PATRICK, Carlisle
PARENTS are paying hundreds
of pounds on the new computer
game craze Fortnite. Do they
have any control these days?
REGGIE, Norwich
THE House of Lords believes we
peasants do not understand what
is best for us. But unlike people
in the past, we live in a democracy and have voted for a future
outside the EU.
That future would be golden
with strong support, but they
would rather see it fail.
New
powers
demanded
by
peers could be used by them and
Remainers
to
overturn
the
referendum result.
If they have their way, the next
referendum should be on their
abolition.
TONY HUBBERT
Caerphilly, Glamorgan
THOSE MPs who want to stay in
the customs union have no
respect for what the majority
voted for in the referendum.
It’s an insult to say we didn’t
know what we were voting for. It
was made very clear.
I am getting angry now that we
may not get the Brexit we voted
for and the country will be very
dissatisfied with the MPs going
against us.
BRIAN SUMMERS
Norwich
I AM fed up that certain parliamentarians, and even more so,
the Lords, are determined to
scupper Brexit. How dare they?
Some of these wish to go
against the will of the 17.4million
people. Has democracy disappeared?
Mrs May, stand up for the
people of the UK who voted out.
Let Brexit mean Brexit as you
have so often said. Take the bull
by the horns and get us out of
the EU by any means next
March.
CAROL BURNELL
Wickford, Essex
ABORTIONS, circumcisions and
teeth extraction are best left in
the hands of experts.
So it beggars belief that people
can turn to a website for
“tutorials” on how to perform
them
and
other
skilled
procedures themselves.
YouTube can’t simply relinquish
responsibility by claiming it’s a
site for free speech.
CAN someone explain to me
what is wrong with setting targets for the deportation of those
who are in this country illegally?
They are stealing the places of
those who have a legitimate right
to be admitted to the UK.
I sincerely hope new Home
Secretary
Sajid
Javid
targets
these people with vigour and
removes them from these shores
as quickly and efficiently as
possible.

A cool decision to give more love in order to get more love
works out for you. Even if it sometimes seems you have been
together for ever, only now does a relationship fully reach its
potential. If you are single, love at first sight is a sexy surprise
for you. Work plans move faster if you team up to win a contract.
You will be sure of the future you want, and what it will cost, so
you can seem cold-hearted as you choose ideas purely for the
profit they make. As for love, as Pluto back-flips through your
partnership chart, a love match is back to its best. If you are
single, your next partner is super-strong and wonderfully kind.
Venus is in your secrets chart and helps you identify the right
partner for a dreamy romance. But Pluto in your marriage zone
offers an intriguing and very demanding partnership. It’s
important to make a clear choice. Work-wise, you make
progress in a subtle way by checking every fact for yourself.
It may be the opposite of the question you expected to be
asked, but your answer will stand out and it can change your
working life for the better. Venus and Mars are on good terms
and a relationship that seemed one-sided turns into an equal
love match. Unattached? You will find love in hypnotic eyes.
The strongest relationship is the one in which each partner
supports the other’s ambitions, as well as being passionately in
love. If you are still waiting to meet The One, today’s most likely
locations are a new office block or an unusual food shop. The
moon shines on family, as you develop home makeover plans.
Your best money-making ideas could click into action but it
means working out every detail, especially the timing and
costings. Love grows faster if you go with the flow of feelings,
rather than analyse everything a partner says. If you seek new
love, a friend has already found someone special for you.
Deep emotions mixed with sensible thinking ensures your love
decisions are right, though they are far from the choices you
expected to make. When you face a job decision, look at who
you would be working with and learning from. A relative you
have yet to meet could be the source of rich luck for you.
When you worked together you used to argue about everything.
Now you meet again, it feels like love, and with Venus in your
marriage chart you may soon be talking weddings. You have
such warmth that everyone remembers you, which helps job
plans. Seeking love? It starts with a laugh in a pizza place.
Your deepest self is a surprise to you, and this is a day to
explore it further and really get to know yourself. If you are
single, your status can change after a very firm handshake from
a super-fit Taurus. With Pluto so active in your sign, money
comes from unusual places. You’re a star turn in a talent show.

You are ready to reveal your independent side instead of being
a restrained version of the real you. This does make life more
challenging but you are up for it. In relationships, you go for the
love you secretly want, not just the one you know you can get.
As Saturn and Pluto rewind, work doors will open up again.

So much romance is scattered through your day, from sudden
declarations of love to secret crushes. All of them are focused
on one person – you. Venus helps you get noticed at work too
and guides you to a job that will feel more like fun than work. Do
finish a conversation about property so you have all the details.
Your mood is thoughtful and your ideas are clever, so you can
surprise yourself by seeking to stay close to one person for as
long as possible. If you are looking for love, it starts when you
raise funds for charity. The Mars effect makes it a great day to
go from reliable team member to inspirational player/manager.

THE boss of MCDONALD’S
UK says coffee and a booming
delivery service have helped
it serve up strong results.
Unveiling trade figures for the
first quarter of 2018, Paul Pomroy
told The Sun it has enjoyed 12
straight years of growth.
The US fast food chain now
serves 3.7 million customers
every day in the UK.
Global like-for-like sales at
McDonald’s were up 5.5 per
cent — beating estimates of
3.7 per cent.
Mr Pomroy said of the UK:
“Our business is going from
strength to strength on coffee.
We have just launched our first
By STEPHEN BOUVIER
barista outlet in St Paul’s in London.
We are also expanding our delivery
tie-up with Uber. Some outlets are
serving 100 people a day through that
route — ten per cent of their volume.”
The chief exec said its 120,000 UK
employees get holiday pay and health
insurance — as well as the offer of a
fixed-hours contract.
He added: “I want to be
able to walk into every crew
room in the country and look
our people in the eye.”
The firm is working with
green packaging companies
to ensure all of its litter can
be recycled. Its delivery fleet
also runs on biodiesel from
deep fat fryers.

BREXIT’S

BREXIT has made the
UK less attractive to
top professionals from

LINKEDIN has found.
The number moving
here has fallen 26 per
cent, the job search

said after speaking to
600

A total of 96 per

“With just under a
year to go until we

it’s clear that this is

Haye’s a
big shot
THE
By GARY STONEHOUSE
DAVID HAYE is so confident
of flooring Tony Bellew he
gave fight fans pre-paid
betting receipts for £100
on him to win by KO!
The Londoner dished
out the slips as he arrived
in Bellew’s hometown of
Liverpool, with the recipients set to pocket nearly
£200 if he is successful.
Haye, 37, was eager to
make amends with Bellew’s
army of Scouse followers,
having acted “like a football hooligan” before their
last fight in March 2017.
Then, Bellew won with
an 11th-round
stoppage.
But
ahead
of Saturday’s
rematch, former
twoweight world
champ Haye
(above),
sipping
from an ‘I love Liverpool’ mug at the Echo
Arena, said: “If you
want to waste your
money, bet on Bellew.
“Last time round I was
a bit angry, this time
round not so much.
“You guys are unfortunately going to see the
end of Tony Bellew.
“This time it will be very
explosive. I love you all.”
But Bellew is sure he
will
win
again
at
London’s O2 Arena.
Bomber, 35, said: “David
has had a great career
but on Saturday it ends.”
Paisley’s wacky route to top
CHRIS PAISLEY’S stunning
final shot at the Zurich
Classic of New Orleans
was worth £130,000 —
and proved the Geordie KEEPS HIS EAGLE EYE ON
in
association
ace has found the Midas
with
THE WORLD OF GOLF
touch this season.
Paisley clinched his maiden the system of cringeworthy has really paid off and the
David Facey
European Tour win in January
and added top-five finishes in
two more big events.
He was almost knocked over
by jubilant partner Tommy
Fleetwood when he holed a
47-yard pitch for a closing
eagle at the 72nd hole in
New Orleans on Sunday.
That
propelled
the
English duo from jointseventh place into a
share of fourth.
Instead
of
leaving
with just under £93,000
apiece,
they
each
pocketed £158,000 —
£9,500
more
than
Paisley banked for
winning the South
African Open!
Paisley, 32, puts his
glory run down to
DRIVE TIME . . . Chris
Paisley has finally hit
top gear this season
forfeits he imposed on himself
if he did not meet training
targets.
For example, if he failed to
hole a certain number of putts
or did not get his chips close
enough, he would have to
immediately drop down and
do press-ups or sprint up and
down the range in front of his
startled fellow pros.
He said: “I realised my
practice was not really emulating the pressure of playing
shots out on Tour.
“I’m quite a shy person and
the thought of doing push-ups
on the practice area in front
of other people was so embarrassing that it really did
create pressure for me.
“Avoiding that embarrassment was a key motivator. It

difference in my game was
amazing.”
Paisley
and
Fleetwood
became close in their amateur
days, playing on the same
Walker Cup team in 2009.
And European No 1 Fleetwood invited the Hexhamborn ace to be his partner at
last week’s PGA Tour event.
They finished just three
shots behind winners Billy
Horschel and Scott Piercy —
and are certain to be invited
back next year.
If
Paisley
continues
the
progress that has lifted him
into the top 20 on the Ryder
Cup world points list, they
could even be reunited in

TEMPLEGATE’S TOP TIPS
BOX CLEVER
DIOCLETIAN (nap) should love the step up in trip in
Brighton’s 2.50. He showed promise in some decent
maidens in the autumn when he didn’t look in love with
fast ground. Today’s conditions should suit him much
better and Jason Watson is a good young jockey with a
fine record when riding for Andrew Balding.
CHARLES FOX (5.55 Newcastle, nb) is a handicapper
to follow for shrewd James Fanshawe. He won over
a furlong further at Kempton, but showed plenty of gears
and should be just as potent dropped back to sprint trips.
POET’S VANITY (7.15 Kempton, treble) has more to
offer. Andrew Balding’s filly was a Group 3 winner at
two, but failed to match those heights during her Classic
season and now drops in class for her seasonal return.

SKY WANT ASCOT COUP
SKY SPORTS RACING, the new name for
ATR, is expected to make Ascot an offer
they can’t refuse to tempt them away
from Racing UK. Chester and Bangor
yesterday signed up to the new Sky
channel in deals which are a significant
boost after ATR lost the rights to racing
in Ireland at the end of the year. Sky
Sports Racing will be available at no
extra cost to all Sky TV subscribers.

TRUMP . . . fired up
Judd dig
at end of
the Wald
By HECTOR NUNNS
JUDD
TRUMP
accused
Ricky Walden of ‘taking
liberties’ as he set up a
sizzling Crucible rematch
with John Higgins.
The Juddernaut beat
Walden 13-9 after winning
the last five frames.
Trump, chasing a first
world title, will now face
four-time champ Higgins
in a repeat of the brilliant
2011 final, which was won
18-15 by the Scot.
The Bristol left-hander
said yesterday’s comeback
was inspired by Walden
taking on an ambitious
red to the middle pocket
— when he led 48-6 on
points and 9-8 in frames.
World No 3 Trump, 28,
pounced on the miss to
clear up for 9-9.
He said: “Rocky took on
a crazy ball and it spurred
me on. Something inside
me fired up.
“One ball can change
the match. It was the first
time in the championship
I felt alive and I made a
really good clearance.
“It felt like a liberty.
Maybe he thought the way
I was playing I wouldn’t
clear up. He shouldn’t be
playing that against me.”
Walden, 35, said: “Judd
can think what he wants, I
play the shot as I see it.”
Ding Junhui wrapped up
a 13-4 win over Anthony
McGill — and now plays
Barry Hawkins in the
quarter-finals.
Mark

13-7 to set up a clash

Hearn on

SNOOKER’S bosses are
considering yellow and red
cards to curb slow play.
This season average
shot times have been
published for the first time
— with ‘Rocket’ Ronnie
O’Sullivan fastest and Lee
Walker of Wales slowest.
And snooker supremo
Barry Hearn wants to put
pressure on the plodders.
Referees have powers to
intervene but further sanctions up for discussion
include warnings, cards,
fines, docking frames and
disqualification.
Hearn said: “We are in
the entertainment business and some players
don’t recognise that.
“We won’t put people on
the clock, like golf, but
assess it then look to see
if the rules need changing.
“Thirty seconds a shot
should never be consistently exceeded but it is.
And that’s boring as hell.”

Mercedes star Hamilton

Sunday but has accused

regulations
on
driving
behind the safety car.
And the Brit will speak
to race director Charlie
Whiting for clarification.
Hamilton

said:
“The rules are
when the safety
car goes, you’re
not allowed to
stop-start.
“You’re
not
allowed to gas
and then brake,
you’re
not
allowed to fake
the car behind. If
there was not that rule,
then that’s what you
would do and eventually
catch them sleeping.
“In Baku, Sebastian did
it maybe four times.
“We’re the leaders, so it
cascades down, it has a
domino effect.”
Four-time
champion
Hamilton complained to
Whiting over the radio
during the race.
But Whiting said:
on
Sunday:
“As
long as no one
does
anything
obviously
dangerous
then we are
happy.”

bust-up
By JORDAN
DAVIES
LIVERPOOL’S day with destiny is dawning
but after 80 minutes of heavy metal
football last week, they will be ruing
their late collapse that gives Roma hope.
The Serie A giants are imperious at the
Stadio Olimpico — yet to concede a home
goal in the Champions League this season.
Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona
have all failed, while the Catalans were
dumped out in the previous round after a
3-0 second-leg defeat.
That scoreline tomorrow would be enough
for Roma again — and they are 30/1 with
Sun Bets to replicate it.
But if any side can shatter Roma’s proud
defensive record, it would be Jurgen Klopp’s
red arrows.
Liverpool are the top scorers in the
competition with 38 goals while Mo Salah,
Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane between
them have scored more than any other side.
Salah is 16/5 to score on his return to
Rome — while the Egyptian and Edin Dzeko
are both at 7/2 to find the net, with Sun
Bets.
But before that, there is the small matter
of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich tonight.
Real hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg in
Germany — but Bayern will take hope from
eerily similar circumstances last season.
After a 2-1 defeat at the Allianz Arena,
the Bavarians won 2-1 in Madrid to force
extra time before Cristiano Ronaldo eventually took control to send Real through.
Bayern are 11/1 with Sun Bets to win 2-1
and force extra-time again.
Yet the Champions League is Ronaldo’s
playground and he can finish off Bayern.
The Portuguese sensation is 5/8 to score
and 14/5 to bag first, both with Sun Bets.
Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski, meanwhile, are a special 3/1 to score any time.

ANDY
CARROLL
was
banished from West Ham’s
training ground yesterday
after a heated row with
David Moyes.
The striker confronted boss
Moyes over his decision to
snub him when he made a
triple substitution in Sunday’s
loss to Manchester City.
But Moyes took no prisoners
and sent his moody targetman
home early following an angry
exchange — and could now
fine Carroll two weeks wages
of £200,000.
There is no suggestion the
row turned physical.
Sub Carroll had stormed
down the London Stadium
tunnel before fulltime
against
City
and did not return
to his seat as the
Hammers
were
thumped 4-1.
He later said he
had gone to use the
toilet. But he was
caught on camera
fuming after Moyes
sent on Javier Hernandez, Joao
Mario and Arthur Masuaku in
the 65th minute.
Speaking after the game,
Moyes promised to “deal with”
Carroll and suggested he was
not being a team player.
Carroll’s
involvement
in
Saturday’s crunch at Leicester
is now in serious jeopardy —
while his future at the club
under Moyes looks uncertain.
The ex-England international
only recently returned to fitness
after a four-month ankle KO,
scoring in a draw with drop
rivals Stoke a fortnight ago.
Carroll, 29, has made just 14
Premier League appearances
this season — seven as a sub —
and scored three goals.
West Ham did not respond
STAR SENT HOME
when contacted by SunSport
for a comment.
This is not the first time
Carroll has been on the wrong
side of Moyes.
The Scotsman criticised him
for a poor performance in a
2-0 loss to Watford shortly
after taking over in November.
Meanwhile, Pablo Zabaleta
admitted he played a big part
in his old club’s latest record.
City became the quickest team
ever to reach a century of
Premier League goals.
And it was West Ham
defender Zaba (inset) who
brought up the 100.
The Argentine, 33, said: “I’ve
been told it’s a Zabaleta own
goal so I helped City for the
record.”

PEP
GUARDIOLA has
vowed to make the ‘right
decision’ for Joe Hart if
West Ham choose not to
keep him.
The goalkeeper’s future
is uncertain as he nears
the end of a season-long
loan with the Hammers.
Hart, 31, has a year left
on his City deal but little
chance of forcing his way
back into the team there.
Guardiola sent him out
on loan to Italians Torino
just months after arriving
at the Etihad in 2016.
And after his side
thrashed West Ham 4-1 on
Sunday the City boss said:
“That was the toughest
decision I’ve made since I
was a manager.
“He was an incredible
professional when we were
together and there are no
doubts about his quality.
“But I am here to make
decisions, sometimes good,
sometimes not. We will
find out in the future.
“He’s our player and, if
he does not continue here
next season, we will talk.
“We are going to speak
with the club and we will
take the right decision for
him.”
Hart watched from the
stands at the London
Stadium as Leroy Sane,
Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho were on target for
City, while Pablo Zabaleta
scored
an
own
goal
against his old club.
And Zabaleta claims
uncertainty over the goalkeeping
position
has
affected the Hammers,
who sit just three points
above the drop zone.
Hart and Spanish stopper Adrian have been in
and out of David Moyes’
struggling side.
Zabaleta said: “That situation has not been easy
for both goalkeepers.
“Sometimes as a keeper
you need the confidence
of keeping your place in
the starting XI.”

The Seagulls defender felt the wrath of Turf

against West Brom back in January.
Bong’s charge was found not proven but the
FA said it was “completely satisfied” the
complaint was “made in absolute good faith”.
An FA statement read: “The FA considers the
behaviour of some supporters on Saturday
towards Gaetan Bong to be unacceptable.”

Rivals call

ROMA fans were last night
ordered to behave —
as Liverpool’s supporters
were urged to be careful.
The first wave of the
Reds’ 5,000-strong away
support will arrive in the
Italian capital today.
There are fears of more
violence following trouble
in the semi-final first leg
at Anfield which left home

condition in hospital.
Liverpool have told their
supporters to avoid walking to Stadio Olimpico for
tomorrow’s second leg and
only use special shuttle
buses from the city centre.

director Monchi pleaded
for a peaceful night.
He said: “There’s a lot

“It is the time to be

will be harder than beating Barcelona.”
Referring to the injured

Liverpool, who lead 5-2,
urged fans to respect monuments and avoid hanging
banners and scarves on
fountains or statues.
They will be turned away

Buvac exit gives Klopp headache
JURGEN KLOPP will be missing
the man he calls ‘the brain’
as he bids to mastermind a
stunning Champions League
success with Liverpool.
By CHARLIE
WYETT
The Kop boss has been rocked by
the shock exit of his long-time No 2
Zeljko Buvac ahead of his side’s
crunch second leg with Roma.
Klopp and Buvac have worked
together for 17 years, ever since they
were team-mates at Mainz.
But Buvac, 56, suddenly stepped
down after Saturday’s 0-0 draw
with Stoke at Anfield.
Klopp’s squad were told on
Sunday that he had quit and the
club
confirmed
yesterday
that
Buvac will not be involved for the
rest of the season due to personal
circumstances.
It seems unlikely, though, the
Bosnian will return to his current
job in the Anfield bootroom.
Liverpool fly to Rome today
ahead of tomorrow’s return with
Roma — carrying a 5-2 lead from
last week’s first leg of their
Champions League semi-final.
So the timing of Klopp’s most
trusted right-hand man leaving is
bizarre — and unhelpful.
Klopp, 50, and Buvac struck up
such a close bond at Mainz they
promised each other that whoever
made it into management first, the
other would follow.
After success together at Mainz
and Dortmund, it was no surprise

than Kop ace Mo Salah stands to

McDermott said: “I might get
some stick for it in Liverpool — but
I don’t really care.
“I don’t need the money. But I
don’t need medals to be proud of
what I’ve done. I already know —
and that will not go away.
“I’ve got three kids who are doing
very nicely, but I want to give them
something before I die. They can
pay off the mortgage.”
The European Cup medals have
reserve prices of £10-15,000.
And McDermott is also selling his
four league title gongs, which are
going for £8,000 each.
Salah is this morning expected to
add the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award
to his PFA honour.
McDermott won both in 1980 and
they are on offer for £6,000 each.
All those big prizes could bag
around £90,000 — but in total
there are 43 items up for sale.
McDermott hopes to earn in the
region of £150,000 altogether, while
Salah’s proposed new Liverpool deal
is worth £185,000 a week.
MAC’S AUCTION
l The Sporting Memorabilia auction by Graham Budd
Auctions is taking place at Sotheby’s in New Bond
Street, London, on Tuesday May 22.
Buvac followed Klopp to Merseyside in October 2015.
An attacking midfielder as a
player, Buvac has always been
regarded as the coach with the
expertise and eye to detail to complement Klopp’s man-management
and decision-making.
Buvac’s importance was clear
when Klopp missed a game against
Sunderland two years ago with
appendicitis and again earlier this
season through illness.
Buvac, although not keen on the
spotlight, took charge both times.

behind with eight.
Going forward, Klopp’s lads have
been as good as it gets in Europe
this season and I just can’t see
them missing out on a place in the
final tomorrow.
I know Roma haven’t conceded a
Champions League goal at home
all season but they haven’t had
to handle Salah, Firmino and
Mane either.
I’d go so far as to say last
week’s performance at Anfield —
bar the last ten minutes — was the
most impressive I have ever seen
from an English club in a twolegged tie.
And when you consider some of
the great displays there have been
over the years, that’s one heck of
an achievement.
Roma were just blown away by
that Red onslaught.
They were in total disarray and
not even Barcelona managed that
— and they put four past them in
their quarter-final first leg.

Liverpool
have

up
dramatically, compared to the start

Keeper Loris Karius looks a lot
more confident and Virgil van Dijk

Unless there is an almighty
capitulation, Liverpool are heading
to Ukraine.
The sky really is the limit for
Klopp’s men this season.

away the most vulnerable.
Scoring has been a real issue and
27 goals, the joint-worst in the Prem
with Swansea, tells its own story.
Sadly a lack of depth and quality
caught up with them, and with City,
Chelsea and Arsenal to come, I don’t
think they will get another point.
Southampton gave themselves
hope by beating Bournemouth.
The Terriers are just three
points ahead of Saints but
with a far worse goal difference —
and that could be their undoing. I

HARRY’S
Kane battles the
odds in pursuit
of Golden gong
By DAN
KING
BRAVE Harry Kane rose above
adversity to settle Spurs’ nerves
and keep dreams of personal
glory alive.
First he was relentlessly ridiculed
for claiming a goal off Christian
Eriksen.
Then his own part-time employers at
the FA mercilessly mocked his FA Cup
semi-final performance.
And just hours before kick-off against
Watford, the governing body completed a
triple whammy when an independent
panel disrespectfully decided not to bring
a charge against Mo Salah, the man
heartlessly hoping to deprive Kane of a
third Golden Boot in a row.
For the first half, all that unfairness
seemed to be weighing down the poor
24-year-old as he tried to break his
wretched run of one game without a goal.
But three minutes after the break, he
ended his drought to give Tottenham
breathing space in the match and
ultimately in the battle to secure a topfour place.
OK, enough sarcasm.
Kane’s goal should do his confidence
good after he had found the net just
twice in eight games and looked sluggish
since returning so quickly from injury.
It was a morale-boosting win for Spurs
after an FA Cup semi-final defeat by
Manchester United.
And Kane’s strike, not to mention Dele
Alli’s opener, will also have been a
welcome sight for England manager
Gareth Southgate, who was sitting in the
Wembley stands.
But both Kane and Spurs were not at
their best against a surprisingly committed Watford side, who wasted some great
chances in the first 45 minutes.
Playing Javi Gracia’s team had looked
like the closest the Premier League had
to a gimme.
The all-but-safe Hornets had been dozy
drones for weeks, sleepwalking towards
another anticlimax rather than buzzing to
finish the season on a high.
It would still be no surprise if Gracia
became the latest Watford boss to pay
the price for a lacklustre second half of
the campaign — especially as he was not

there for the first half. But in the opening 45 minutes, they gave Spurs plenty to
think about and it took Kane’s goal early
in the second half to dishearten them.
It soon became clear that Spurs were
going to have to shake their fans out of
the disappointment of their FA Cup
defeat, rather than the other way round.
There was a large number of empty
seats at a stadium in which it is hard to
create a sizzling atmosphere at the best

The Hornets keeper may have been put
off by Christian Kabasele ducking under
Kieran Trippier’s cross but there was still
no excuse for fumbling the ball straight
to Eriksen.
The Dane worked it to Dele, who drove
home from 12 yards.

Etienne Capoue played in Andre Gray,

STAKING HIS CLAIM . . .
Kane slots home Spurs’ second
and then jumps for joy (inset)

Oliver did not think it was a penalty.
Then Doucoure should have done better
in the other 18-yard box than hitting his
shot straight at Lloris.
Spurs were giving the ball away more
times in one half than they had probably
done in entire games.
In the 44th minute, Lloris was forced
not only to make a fine save from
Richarlison but also to rush out to tackle
Doucoure 30 yards from his goal.
Spurs needed another goal and their
main man provided it inside three
minutes of the restart.
Kane failed to connect with Son’s cross
but side-footed home when Trippier sent
the ball back to him.
Jan Vertonghen then hit the post with a
header and Kane completely missed the
follow-up, but Watford were still hoping
for their first away goal since January 2.
Richarlison somehow fired over the bar
from six yards then substitute Gerard

good condition to play in
the World Cup.
“Is there still a physical
hangover from his ankle
injury? Of course.
“It wasn’t a great period
for him and he is human
and was a little affected.
“With the help of everyone now he is doing well.
“He needs to improve
his performance still but I
am happy.
“It’s 150 games in the
Premier League and 105
goals — what more can
you say about him? The
numbers talk for him.”
Kane now has 27 Prem
goals for the season, four
behind Mo Salah in the
race for the Golden Boot.
Yet he could have had a
hat-trick against Watford.
The hitman had one
effort disallowed for offside while he also failed to
convert a rebound after Jan
Vertonghen hit the post.
Kane said: “I feel sharp
and probably could have
got more today.
“I would have liked to
play better over the last
few games but I feel good
and I’m looking forward to
the last three games and
a strong finish like last
year, then a big summer.”
Kane
finished
last
season with seven goals in
his final two games and
added: “Last year I got
29 so I want to beat that.
“Last year was an unbelievable end but we will
see what happens. Hopefully I can do the same.”
Kane sealed the win that
puts Spurs five points
clear of fifth-placed Chelsea after Dele Alli had
punished a first-half howler
by keeper Orestis Karnezis.
Watford have now failed
to score in seven away
Prem games.
But, with 38 points on
the board, boss Javi Gracia
is adamant they are not in
a relegation battle.
He said: “I prefer to be
optimistic.”

DREAM TEAM RATINGS
HARRY KANE has notched
105 goals in 150 league
appearance for Spurs. Only
Alan Shearer has scored
more (121) after the same
number of Prem games.
FOUR
Callum’s
five star
Deulofeu had the ball in the net, only to
be ruled offside.
Kane then suffered the same fate when
he failed to hold his run for what should
have been a routine collect-and-finish
from Vertonghen.
The Spurs and England man will have
to settle for moving to within four goals
of Salah, who has 31 with a maximum of
two matches to play, to his rival’s three.
The
Watford
fans
sang:
“Arsene
Wenger, he’s won more than you.”
Don’t take it personally, Harry.
