By HARRY COLE
SOCIAL media must
be regulated to stop
the spread of fake
news before the next
election, a landmark
Lords review has ruled.
Under a radical overhaul,
voters
would
need to be told who
paid for online political
ads and campaigns.
Labour?s Lord Lipsey,
who led the inquiry,
said: ?More needs to be
done to educate the
population to spot fake
news and propaganda.
?One step the Government can take is to
require all online campaign communications
to carry an imprint to
say who published it,
as is the case for
printed material.?
But the review did
not call for opinion
polls to be outlawed in
the run-up to elections
? amid claims by critics that firms try to
skew the results.
Instead, it said pollsters must reveal who
paid for their surveys.
Lord Lipsey added:
?The murky world of
online political communications pose an
insidious threat.?

RECORD PENALTY
JUDGE
Shame . . . star at crash scene
By JACK ROYSTON, GARY
O?SHEA and NEIL SYSON
A JUDGE handed Ant
McPartlin an �,000
drink-driving fine yesterday
?
but
the
millionaire
will
have
paid it by the weekend.
District Judge Barbara
Barnes asked Ant?s lawyer
how long it would take the
disgraced TV presenter to
pay the fine, believed to
be a UK record.
Barrister
Liam
Walker
replied: ?Two to five days.?
Ant, who earns �0,000-aweek, was also banned from
driving for 20 months after
admitting being twice the limit
when his Mini smashed into
two cars.
After the hearing at Wimbledon
magistrates?
court
a
haunted-looking Ant, 42, said
he was ?truly sorry?.
The Saturday Night Takeaway presenter, who checked
into rehab after the crash,
added: ?High standards are
expected of me, I expect them
of myself. I?ve let myself down,
I?ve let a lot of people down.?
In a fuller statement to
police following his arrest, he
said: ?I Anthony McPartlin
wish to say as follows: I accept
that on March 18 I drove a
vehicle on the Lower Richmond Road while under the
influence of alcohol.
?I?m very sorry I did this.
I?m ashamed and mortified
that this happened.
?I accept full culpability for
this and wish to apologise to
all concerned.
?I appreciate that by being
in the public eye, higher levels
of behaviour are expected of
me and it is important I set a
positive example to others.
?I?m incredibly disappointed
that I have let myself and so
many others down on this
occasion.
?I recognise I need
to deal with this?
?I?m addressing what I now
recognise as problems with
alcohol and emotional issues.
?I recognise that I need to
deal with this.
?As a consequence I have
sought
immediate
specialist
help and support to ensure
that nothing of this nature
happens again.?
A source said Ant went
straight from the court back to
rehab, adding: ?He?s going to
be out of contact with the outside world again while he
focuses on that.
?He was very open about his
remorse and totally regrets
everything that happened.
?As he?s made clear he?s now
focusing on dealing with the
issues which caused this incident which means sticking to
the expert advice. So he?s
going to remain in treatment for the foreseeable
future.
?He needs to deal with
his
issues
thoroughly
and is determined to see
his rehab through fully
and come out the other
side.?

Christine Woodhall after walking their dogs.
He lost control of his black
Mini while taking a corner in
Mortlake, South West London.
He careered on to the wrong
side of the road, glanced off a

hit a BMW. The court
heard Ant, who is
divorcing wife of 11
TV pal . .
loved by
millions
with Dec
years Lisa, had been seeking
help for ?alcohol and emotional issues? at the time of
the accident but was having ?a
brief relapse?.
Christine had no idea he
had been drinking. No details
were given in court of exactly
what the presenter had drunk
before the accident or where.
Restaurant owner Faheem
Vanoo was in the Mini Cooper
with wife Shilpa, four-year-old
daughter Amaira, who needed
hospital treatment, and two
colleagues.
He said: ?The black Mini
came down facing the wrong
side of the road.
?I moved to the left to avoid
a serious head-on collision. We
were hit with considerable
force. My wife?s face hit the
car seat causing injury.
?My family were in considerable shock and believe if I
had not taken evasive action
we could have died as a result
of Mr McPartlin?s reckless
driving.?
BMW driver Dr Audrey Ng
said the impact was so violent
she initially feared Ant had
been killed.
Her terrified nine-year-old
son screamed in terror, believing that he was going to die.
Ant looked ashen-faced in
the dock as Judge Barnes
addressed him.
He nodded as she said: ?You

?He hopes that in time he

Since 2015 there has been no
ceiling on drink-driving fines.
Instead, they are calculated
based on earnings.
The
previous
record
is
thought to be the �,000 that
Manchester City?s Yaya Toure
was fined in 2016.
Ant first went into rehab in
the summer for drink and
prescription drug addictions.
His road ban could be
reduced to 15 months if he
completes
a
drink-drive
awareness course.
Ant, of Chiswick, pleaded
guilty to driving with 75
microgrammes of alcohol in
100 millilitres of breath.
The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.
Ant will be off screen for
the forseeable future.
He was seen alongside presenting partner Dec Donnelly
over the weekend as Britain?s
Got Talent aired its prerecorded audition shows.
But ITV confirmed Dec will
host the live shows without his
TV partner of almost 30 years.

RICH ?CLOBBERED?
ANT?S massive drink-drive fine
came under rules that tie penalties to the weekly income of
offending motorists.
The presenter faced the embarrassment of having his �0,000
weekly earnings revealed in court
as the judge calculated how
much he would be forced to
cough up.
Drivers are ordered to pay 150
per cent of their weekly income
? but Ant?s fine was reduced
because of his guilty plea.
There was previously a �000
maximum ? but that has been
changed to allow for sky-high
fines for the wealthy.
Footballer Yaya Toure was
fined �,000 in 2016
after claiming he accidentally drank a brandy and

Dr Ng added: ?As there was no

?Then the driver of the black

Dr Ng said she was stunned

She added: ?I?m horrified that

Mrs May faced claims she
acted illegally by authorising
the RAF attacks without
getting MPs? backing first.
She said: ?The leader of
the opposition has said that
he can only countenance
involvement in Syria if there
is UN authority behind it.
?The House should be

Britain,
the
US
and
France unleashed 105 missiles on the Syrian regime
in response to the chlorine
gas attack on Douma that
killed 75 and wounded 500.
During
the
three-hour
debate, Mrs May called it ?a
stain on our humanity?. But
pacifist Mr Corbyn said the
strikes were legally questionable and demanded a
War Powers Act to force the
Government to seek Parliament?s approval before any
future military action.
The PM hit back by
saying any delay would have
put RAF lives at risk.
She denied she was just
following orders from the
US, saying: ?We believed it
was the right thing to do.?
Late last night, the Government easily defeated a
protest vote, called by the
SNP, by 314 to 36.
Also last night, a Syrian
military base was said to
have come under missile
attack. The Shayrat air base
at Homs was targeted but
the missiles were shot down,

?Killer?, 16

A BOY of 16 appeared in
court yesterday charged
with the rape and murder of 14-year-old Viktorija Sokolova, whose body
was found in a park.
The handcuffed teenager spoke only to confirm his name, age and
address during the fiveminute hearing.
His tearful father and
uncle were also at Dudley magistrates court.
The boy, from Wolverhampton, was remanded
in custody pending a
crown court hearing.
Viktorija,
who
was
killed by a blow to the
head, was discovered in
the park by a passer-by

Carl Martin, 33, discovered the ban
after contacting Tory council chief

proposed eviction of homeless people.
He received an email from an
official, which read: ?Camping will
not be allowed along the processional
route but folding chairs and some
form of cover will be allowed.?
Retail manager Carl, of Felixstowe,

The

THE
SAYS
Rudderless
AMBER Rudd has to start getting a grip on
the Home Office.
The incompetence revealed by the
scandalous treatment of Windrush
immigrants is staggering.
Within hours, the Home Secretary and
her Minister inexplicably contradicted
each other on whether any of these Brits
were wrongly deported.
Ms Rudd cannot shirk the blame. She
has been in her job for nearly two years.
Her boss, the Prime Minister, was
Home Secretary before that. Any failings are on the Government?s watch.
Those affected must be assured that
they can stay in the country to which
they have contributed so much. The
Home Office has to sort out this mess.
Otherwise how can Ugandan Asians ? or
3million Europeans who have been rightly
told they can stay after Brexit ? have any
confidence in the system?
Time for calm
THE Prime Minister was right to bomb the
Syrian regime after its assault on civilians.
But with that complete, it is time for
Mrs May, President Trump and President Macron to offer a strategy to calm
tensions between the superpowers.
Clearly no one should hide behind
woolly words about ?peaceful solutions?
when a rogue dictator gasses children.
The refusal of the Russian and Syrian
regimes to let inspectors do their work
shows the absurdity of Jeremy Corbyn?s
calls for an independent probe.
But there is no benefit to anybody in
Moscow, London, Paris or Washington
pouring more fuel on the tinderbox.
Cool heads must now prevail. It is time
for real diplomacy.
Silence in court
THE CPS have again kept vital evidence
about celebrity misbehaviour confidential.
At his sentencing for drink-driving
yesterday, details of the case against
Ant McPartlin were not revealed in
court. We may never know how the TV
host came to be so far over the limit.
This flies in the face of the principle of
open justice.
Ant?s behaviour could have been used
as a cautionary example for others.
This cover-up means there?s no chance
of that happening.
A poor tribute
MET Police boss Cressida Dick needs to
step in to cool Hither Green tensions.
Bungling local cops should never have
allowed a floral tribute to a burglar outside the house he raided.
It is blindingly obvious that they can?t
let a deliberately provocative procession
go past, either.
On public order grounds, this funeral has
to be re-routed.

CORBYN RAMPS UP ELECTION WAR
Shabby of Labour
to exploit Grenfell
fire to win votes
By
CLARE
FOGES
SOME historical events are
so seismic that people
remember exactly where
they were when they
heard of them.
The assassination of JFK,
the death of Diana and the
election of Emma Dent Coad
as an MP last June.
According
to
the
lady
herself in a recent article,
?when I won Kensington for
Labour,
the
world
shifted
a little?. In another piece
she suggests that ?everyone
remembers those 20 votes?
that got her over the line.
A bit of self-regard from an
MP is forgivable. Less so are
her claims that the reasons for
this Labour victory became
clear days later, on the night
Grenfell Tower burnt.
According to Dent Coad,
the
?towering
tombstone . . .
captures all that has gone
wrong with politics over the
past few decades?, that is
Conservatives
who
would
knowingly house the poorest in
a death trap because their
veins run thick with black bile.
PROTEST
. . . MP
Emma
Dent

Saturday
Stirred division
But, dear voters, she makes
clear there is a chance to put
that right in just over two
weeks? time, when the local
elections on May 3 can mark
the
?end
game?
for
the
?selfishness and opportunism?
that caused the fire.
Jeremy Corbyn took the
same ghastly approach by
invoking Grenfell at his local
election launch.
He
accused
Conservative
politicians
of
being
both
heartless and hopeless after
the tragedy, arguing that ?the
brutal and inescapable truth
is that the fire simply would
not have happened if the
occupants had been wealthy?.
It is political opportunism of
the most vile variety and yet
no one seems willing to call
out Labour on it.
Winston
Churchill
once
suggested
that
politicians
should never let a good crisis
go to waste. With this tragedy,
the Left did not have the
decency to wait until the
building stopped smouldering.
They were making political
capital from the start, with
protest
banners
screaming
?blood
on
Tory
hands?,
followed
by
jabs
at
Government callousness and
allegations that the public
inquiry was a stitch-up (the
MP David Lammy professed
horror
that
the
chosen
chairman was a ?white, uppermiddle-class
man?).
So
had not been offered anything
permanent. The fact is that
survivors
are
refusing
properties because they say
they do not suit their needs.
They are within their rights
to do so, but to suggest they
have been neglected is wrong.
The
council
has
spent
�5million
to
secure
307
homes. All this is ignored to
make Grenfell grist for the
grievance mill.
Labour?s seizure of
the
tragedy
for
political
gain
does
not only matter in
terms of the local
elections.
It
is
a
warning
of
an
approach that would
be utterly poisonous
were the party ever
to return to power.
It is a worldview
which
insists
that
behind every tragedy
is a conspiracy of
greed ? if you are
suffering, it is not
bad luck. It is the
wealthy, and Tories in
particular, who are
deliberately holding you down.
So says Dent Coad: ?The
team in control think people
in social housing are lesser
beings . . .
less
important,
grasping and a nuisance.?
Corbyn says Grenfell is ?a
monument? to ?the disdain for
the powerless and the poor?.
Them versus us; rich versus
poor; Tories versus the rest.
Poison and distrust
OPPORTUNIST

Stormzy,
was
rapping: ?Theresa May, where?s
the money for Grenfell? . . . you
just forgot about Grenfell, you
criminals? to the cheers of
right-on music industry execs.
For ten months the Left has
stirred division and peddled
misinformation
with
no
counter-argument made.
Terrified
of
appearing
insensitive to the plight of
survivors, no one will defend
the efforts made by the
Government or the council.
Some reluctance is understandable, of course. When
people with so little have lost
so much, any political tit-for-

It could have happened in a
private block, too. According
to
Government
figures
in
February from the Building
Safety Programme (set up
after Grenfell), there are 130
private residential blocks, as
well as 158 social residential
buildings, clad in aluminium
composite material unlikely to
meet present safety guidance.
It may be electorally useful
for Labour to suggest that
if only we could requisition
homes from the greedy rich or
get the Queen to cough up
more (Dent Coad?s suggestion),
the suffering of the poor
would cease.
But this simplistic nonsense
sows poison and distrust.
Labour?s exploitation of
Grenfell should not only
be a turn-off to the
voters in these local
elections. It should be a

TWO houses dating back
11,000 years have been
declared Britain?s oldest
dwellings by experts.
Remains of the wooden
shacks were found during
a decade-long dig at a
Stone Age site.
The archaeologists also
found early evidence of
carpentry,
jewellery,
a
domesticated
dog
and
nearby
the
butchered
bones of 200 horses.
The discoveries at Star
Carr, North Yorks, are at
odds with the belief that
Stone Age Britons were
small groups of roaming,
hunter-gatherers.
Instead, they reveal a
civilisation which settled
on the site for 800 years.
The houses were built
along the shores of a
lake, from which the villagers feasted on fish.
The University of York?s
Prof Nicky Milner, who
has co-authored a book
on the discovery, said:
?People back then were a

than we tend to think.?
The chain has closed its
Facebook,
Twitter
and
Instagram accounts for its
900 pubs and head office.
It said they brought nothing
to the business and staff would
prefer to talk to customers.

of social media.

to a toxic mix of politicalcorrectness and left-wing
bias. Some of those

dialling frenzy after last

of ITV?s Last Laugh In Vegas.
First call?
Probably Opportunity Knocks
pianist Bobby Crush, who for a
few weeks back in the mid-1970s
seemed to have the world at his
fingertips.
Then came nothing. Bobby
vanished and I always wondered
why ? until I saw him making
life a perfect misery for eight

Crush is the reason that, after a
particularly heavy meal, Australians love
to say: ?I?m fuller than a Pommie?s
complaint box.?
The hire car, the air con, the mansion?s
kitchen, its kettle, his bedroom, the
curtains.
Almost
nothing
is
to
his
satisfaction.
If Bobby?s glass is permanently half
empty, though, singer Jess Conrad?s is
brimming
over
with
the
simple,
inexplicable joy of being Jess Conrad.
News which may come as a bit of a
surprise to the rest of us, given Jess has
not actually had a hit record since the
JFK presidency.
Jess, though, seems blissfully unaware of
his own place in the grand scheme of
things, referring to the rest of us as
?ordinaries? and himself usually in the
third person.
?Listen, Jess is talking.?
Personally, I?d have Jess and his ego on
the first flight out to Australia as well.
Jungle ready or not, though, Last Laugh
In Vegas would still struggle if it was just
a mickey-taking reminder that older
contestants make the most interesting
reality TV contestants. Fortunately, it?s not.
GOOD Morning Britain has moved
studios and given the forwarding address

jeopardy.

been going really badly, under the expert
guidance of Frank Marino, and you fear
for them at the big, end-of-series Vegas
variety show.
Beautifully touching
As well as the slightly dark edge to
proceedings, though, the series is also
beautifully touching and laugh-out-loud
funny, often within the same segment of
the show.
So one minute Anita Harris is dwelling
tearfully on her lost youth and Vegas
showgirl career. The next, Bobby Ball is
making an emergency call home shouting:
?I ain?t packed me braces.? Which, for
Bobby, is like Elvis going on stage without
the rhinestone jumpsuit.

After the removal of his prostate,

Albert said: ?I feel shocked, sad.

don?t expect them to turn you away.
?I was waiting for my appointment when an administrator gave
me a form to fill out.

At the same time his future in
the UK was also in jeopardy.

mum, who had returned to Barbados, died two years ago, she could
not go to the funeral.
Judy, 63, said: ?It really hurt. It is
the unfairness and injustice that
upsets me more than anything.?
The situation has also seen
her run up debts on her rented
flat in Archway, North London,
and narrowly escape eviction.
She said: ?I want people to
know how serious this is.
?If you can?t have that resident
permit, you can?t bank, you can?t

She said: ?This has impacted my

EGYPT PILLS
BRIT IN JAIL
MOVES to make cheap
blood pressure pills more
widely available on the NHS
to cut heart and stroke risk
could backfire and cost
lives, a study warns.
NHS watchdog NICE is
thinking of lowering the eligibility threshold so millions
more can get the drugs.
But
Australian
medics
claim it will help just one
in five new patients.
Sydney University?s Katy
Bell said labelling people
with low risk of the disease
unwell increases their anxiety ? known to cause blood
pressure spikes. She added:
?It also means more may
experience serious adverse
effects from treatments.?
The NICE review follows
new guidelines from the
American Heart Association
which adopted lower blood
pressure targets to include
an extra 31million adults.
Fellas like
blondes
in genes
WOMEN are twice as likely
as men to have naturally
fair hair ? because blokes
prefer blondes, experts say.
Researchers
discovered
more women are fair haired
after the DNA analysis of
almost
300,000
people
identified 124 genes that
play a major role in determining colour.
Prof
Tim
Spector
of
King?s College London said
it may be because men prefer blondes, while women
will opt for a man with
darker hair ? so this combination were more likely
to pass on their genes.
He added: ?It could be
for evolutionary reasons, as
blonde women are more
likely to be successful with
men and dark-haired men
are more likely to be more
successful with women.?
The study could help
police predict a suspect?s
hair colour from DNA.

A MUM yesterday admitted the manslaughter of
her toddler son who died
after falling from a sixthfloor flat window.
Gemma

had been due to stand
trial accused of murdering 18-month-old Elliot.
She denied murder, but

No details of their findings and what happened

At the time, officers had yet to

Mr Johnson was later given

FEST OF LUCK FOR NIC ON LIL
NICOLE APPLETON won?t
have to wait long for her
showdown with LILY ALLEN
? the warring pair are both
on the bill for the Common
People festival in
Southampton next month.
Nicole, far left, was
stunned after The Sun on
Sunday revealed Lily?s plans
to share details of her 2009
mile-high romp with LIAM
GALLAGHER, who the ALL
SAINTS singer was married
to at the time.
After seeing the news,
Nicole tweeted the warning:
?One day our paths will
cross, @Lilyallen!?
A festival source said: ?It?s
a pretty small event, which
means it will be almost
impossible to keep Nicole
and Lily apart, especially as
Nicole wants a confrontation.
And who can blame her.?
PADDY MCGUINNESS?s
wife CHRISTINE has taken
great joy in the revelations
from Lily ? after Nicole was

She posted on Instagram,

Drake has a
new lovebird
HE DATES BRIT RISING STAR RAYE
GLOBAL superstar DRAKE is
making more than just sweet
music with Brit singer RAYE.
I can reveal the pair are dating
after some late-night studio sessions.
And the Canadian, below with Raye,
has been wining and dining her in
one of London?s swankiest restaurants.
A music insider said: ?Raye is a
massive fan of Drake?s work and
reached out on Twitter to send him
one of her songs.
?He was clearly impressed by her
songwriting talents and when
they met to record, it
quickly became obvious it
wasn?t just her music he
was interested in.
?It?s early days but the
pair have already been
out on a string of dates,
with Drake taking her to
his favourite restaurant,
Nobo Berkeley in central
London. He even turned
up to watch her perform for a fashion
bash
at
London?s
new
venue
Lost Rivers Leake Street on Friday.
?He?s got form for dating the hottest
and most up-and-coming stars in the
world so Raye isn?t reading too much
into it, they?re just having fun at the
moment.?
I awarded Raye ? who has penned
hits for LITTLE MIX and CHARLI XCX
as well as making her own chart
assault with her JAX JONES banger
You Don?t Know Me ? my Next Big
Thing last year. Drake must agree ?
although she has some way
to go to match his
levels of success.
Last Friday Drake
scored a new No1
with his latest single,
Nice For What, following its surprise
release just six days
earlier.
And
last
night on Instagram he
announced that his
next album, Scorpion, will be released
in June.
The new romance for the singer follows a long string of celeb conquests
to his name, including RIHANNA, RITA
ORA,
SERENA
WILLIAMS
and
MADONNA ? but he hasn?t publicly
dated anyone since his romance with
JENNIFER LOPEZ ended in 2017.
Drake, who clearly has a love for
Japanese food, also took J Lo to Nobu,
but this time in LA, after they
connected backstage at her All I Have
Las Vegas show in 2016.
He aired his woes after being
dumped by the singer in his tune
Diplomatic Immunity, singing: ?2010
was when I lost my halo, 2017 I lost a
J Lo, A Rotterdam trip had me on
front page, though? ? seemingly referring to her relationship with new man,
baseball player ALEX RODRIGUEZ, who
she began dating after things with
Drake cooled off.
Hopefully Raye can provide him
with more than just writing material.
FESTIVAL GETS EMIN-ENCORE
THERE was no chance of NICOLE
SCHERZINGER blending into the crowd
on the final day of Coachella.
The former X Factor judge, far right,
wore this bright bra top and boots to the
California music festival on Sunday,
where RITA ORA and RIHANNA also
spent the day partying.
They got to see EMINEM close
the three-day event, bringing on
special guests 50 CENT, DR DRE and
BEBE REXHA, who joined him to
perform his 2013 hit The Monster,
which Bebe originally wrote. Tickets
were in such demand for the event
that it will take place for a second
time, with exactly the same line-up,
this weekend.
Punters will have to dig deep into
their wardrobes to keep up
with this lot.

Cheshire?s Chief Constable Simon Byrne is
alleged to have ruled

He was suspended last
August after staff lodged
74 complaints.
A hearing in Warrington was told he created
an ?intimidating, hostile

He is also said to have
wasted three hours interfering in an arrest he
wanted to claim as his
own to win a competition
between senior officers.
Mr Byrne, 54, denies
gross misconduct.

further
claim he was never officially informed he was
under investigation.

INJURY TRIGGERS BREAK-UP
Pills can
free true
feelings
By
CAROL COOPER
Sun Doctor
YOU can?t make someone
gay any more than you
can turn a gay person
straight.
There are drugs that
can modify sexual behaviour ? for instance testosterone may increase
aggression and sex drive
in both sexes. But no
drug can transform someone?s preference.
It?s more likely Scott?s
true sexuality was lying
dormant, as happens to
many young gay people.
The drug may have
eased Scott?s anxiety and
released his inhibitions so
profoundly that it appears
to have thrown a switch
in his sex life.
Diet boy
rail death
A LAD of 17 was killed
by a train after having
anxiety and body confidence issues and wrongly
believing he was overweight, an inquest heard.
Kameron
Lyons
had
been fasting and mentioned to his doctor the
controversial 5:2 diet.
GP James Milligan said
he admitted having suicidal
thoughts
and
believed he was overweight, despite having a
normal body mass index.
Girlfriend Clodagh Ireland said: ?He would
think a lot about body
image. I would often have
to get him to eat.?
Aspiring

Kameron, of Wilmslow,
Cheshire, was hit by a
train at Handforth station, Macclesfield coroner?s court was told.

Unemployed Scott said it
was a shock to friends when
he came out but he was
happy with his sexuality.
He said: ?I want to keep
on taking it because it makes
me feel happy about my sexuality. It?s liberating.?
Experts don?t think pregabalin changes your sexuality
but it can remove your inhibitions. Lyrica maker Pfizer
said the drug has been
proven effective in ?a large
number of clinical trials?.

s the former trainee of Alf Wight,
who brought the world of a
country vet to life for millions of
people under his pen name of
James Herriot, I?ve seen it all in my years
as a vet. And this week was no exception.
I?ve experienced the heartbreak of
losing a pregnant ewe but managed to
save her two baby lambs (above). Seeing
life and death at such close quarters is all
in a day?s work, but having to put an
animal to sleep is always hard ? it?s
the worst part of the job. Being able to
bring new life into the world, on the other
hand, is the reason I do this job ? there?s
nothing quite like it.

week I also got to
meet a wallaby called Wendy from
a local farm park, she was losing
weight and wasn?t well.
Another case in the show is Griff the
terrier, who swallowed a rather large
tennis ball. Griff is no ordinary dog, he?s a
top agility dog and is used to jumping
fences and running through tunnels. But
a game of fetch turned nasty when he
swallowed the ball.
Julian [Norton, Wright?s co-star on The
Yorkshire Vet] had to perform emergency
surgery on him and it was even trickier
as poor Griff suffers from epilepsy.

BORN prematurely at 29 weeks,
Tyler has pulmonary vein stenosis, a
serious condition where the heart
cannot receive oxygen-rich blood.
Shortly after his diagnosis, Tyler
had a stroke at just ten months old.
He spent the first 15 months of his
life in and out of surgery ? including
operations to have balloons fitted in
his veins to help blood flow.
His mum, Katie Richardson, 33,
from Brighton, says:
At six months old Tyler went blue
and almost stopped breathing.
He was diagnosed with pulmonary
vein stenosis and doctors told us he
was incredibly fortunate to be alive
without having had treatment so far.
His veins weren?t open enough so
the decision was made to put balloons
in. He needed bigger ones fitted at nine
months old but when they started failing we were told they needed to be put
further into the vein ? but doing so
would make his condition life-limiting if
they failed.
If we?d said no, Tyler would have died
that night.
The ones he has now have been in
for more than five years but could fail at
any time, which would mean he would
lose his life.
He was one of the youngest patients
in the world to have the procedure and
back on the ward he wouldn?t settle.
I managed to get him to sleep on his
right-hand side but when he woke up
he couldn?t move his right side at all.
A small clot had travelled up to his
brain and caused a stroke. All this
before he was even one.
He started a rigorous course of
physio and occupational therapy to
regain the use of his right side but he
won?t ever get the use back fully.
Tyler finally came home when he was
15 months and ten days old. We were
told it was 50:50 that he?d survive until
he was two ? he?s seven in April.
We count every day as a blessing
and couldn?t be more proud of him.

CLAIRE BRYANT?S daughter,
Phoebe, from Bristol, has suffered
reflex anoxic seizures since she
was little more than a month old.
They occur because the
electrophysiology of her heart
stops it beating. Claire, 32, a
teaching assistant, says:
Phoebe was six weeks old when
I heard the most awful sound on
her baby monitor at home. It
sounded like she was dying and
choking at the same time.
We called an ambulance and she
was resuscitated. They kept her in
hospital overnight but couldn?t find
anything, so we were sent home.
6
This kept happening for the next
seven months but doctors couldn?t
find a cause.
She was eventually diagnosed at
12 months and needed an
emergency pacemaker, which was
fitted a month later.
She still suffers the seizures but
now the pacemaker kicks in. While
she?s a normal little girl, she can?t
use iPads or iPhones because they
could reset her pacemaker back to
factory settings.
Phoebe is really proud of the little
box inside her chest. The first year
of her life was terrifying but her
future looks so much brighter.

AFTER a series of infections and

Type C, a rare genetic condition
under the Alzheimer?s umbrella.
Mum Elaine, 38, from Dudley,
West Mids, says:
Despite being just 5lb when she

When she was 18 months old she
got a throat and ear infection. Doctors also found she had a swollen

She was formally diagnosed with
Niemann-Pick Type C at 20 months.

LIKE his mum Jo Tidmarsh, 40, and
grandad Kip O?Brien, Alfie has
familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH).
It is a hereditary condition which
causes high cholesterol and can
lead to a heart attack at an early age.
Kip, 69, had his first aged 30. Mumof-three Jo, a teaching assistant
from Leighton Buzzard, Beds, says:
My dad had a triple bypass after his
first heart attack and, because he
was so young, my brothers and I were
tested for FH. I was the only one that
had it too.
While I don?t remember life without
the diagnosis, I felt very different growing up. I couldn?t have chocolate or fat,
everything had to be home-made, no
processed food, no birthday cakes and
I was on medication.
But no one told me I could pass it on
to my kids. Only after I had my eldest,
Charlie, now 16, did doctors tell me.
Dad had another bypass when he
was 51 and was referred to Harefield
Hospital in London, which has a
research department looking into FH.
The support was amazing. When I
had Frank, now 11, and Alfie, they told
me all the boys
should
be
tested.
They
isolated Dad?s
gene that caused
his FH so knew
exactly what to look for.
When I found out Alfie was the
only one to have it, I was heartbroken
for him. He was three so didn?t know
any different but I?m determined it won?t
isolate him as much as it did me.
He knows he has it and he knows he
can?t have chocolate and cake and
treats like his peers do but he?s amazing. He?s not on medication at the
moment, just diet and exercise, but he?ll
go on to statins next year.
His future looks brighter than mine
did. Doctors are confident they can
disable the mutated gene in Alfie
before he starts his own family.

AT five years old, Caitlyn Banks?s
daughter, Tilly, was diagnosed
with cataracts.
Caitlyn is a freelance marketing
manager from South West
London. The 34-year-old says:
We were on holiday in Devon
and because Tilly was in reception and learning her letters and
words, I?d ask her to read signs.
She was having to squint at the
ones that were far away. I made an
appointment for her at the optician?s but it seemed like her sight
was deteriorating even more.
On the way to the eye test I asked
if she could read the number on a
6
bus ahead of us ? she couldn?t see
the bus, let alone the number.
The optician said she had cataracts. Tilly?s dad had them when he
was young but I had no idea they
could have been hereditary.
We were referred to Great Ormond
Street. Prosthetic lenses were
placed behind her eyes and they
removed the cloudy lenses.
The difference was incredible but
she?s still losing vision, so doctors
are investigating why.
Tilly has to sit at the front of the
class but other than wearing
glasses, she is no different to any
other little girl.

JESSIE J is no stranger to dishing

judge on the UK and Australian
versions of The Voice.
But in an unexpected career
twist, the singer has swapped the
spinny chairs for a slot as a
contestant by entering ? and
winning ? a Chinese TV equivalent
of The X Factor, Singer.
Posting to Instagram yesterday,
she wrote: ?I was the first
international artist to ever be asked
to compete. An honour alone.
?I know a lot of people were
shocked when they found out. Like
why would I compete in a singing
competition?
?I?m

DRAMA
FOR BEN
AFTER wearing wings made
out of daggers for his role in
X Men: Apocalypse, trying on
Victorian garb should have
been a doddle for BEN HARDY.
But while filming new BBC1
period drama The Woman In
White, ex-EastEnder Ben
struggled to go to the loo
because of all the layers.
The star, who played Peter
Beale in the BBC soap, said:
?Going to the bathroom can
definitely be tricky.
?I rarely wear anything other
than trackies so wearing
Victorian costume every day for
three months was definitely a
change of style.
?It gives you an appreciation
of the effort the Victorians had
to go through every morning.
?But, fortunately, I wasn?t the
one having to wear corsets ? so I
can?t complain too much.?
The psychological thriller
centres around a Victorian
madhouse and also stars
JESSIE BUCKLEY, CHARLES
DANCE and DOUGRAY SCOTT.
It starts on Sunday at 9pm.
Ben?s certainly moved up in

RETURN FOR SHIPWRECKED
IF you ever spent a
weekend hungover in the
Noughties, chances are you
caught an episode of
Shipwrecked.
The classic reality show was
last on our screens seven years
ago, but Channel 4 is planning
a reboot.
Bosses have earmarked the
programme, which dropped a
load of buff young castaways on
a
tropical
island
for
the
ultimate gap year, for a return
in 2019 after being inspired by
the success of Love Island.
A TV insider said: ?Lots of
people have fond memories of
watching Shipwrecked in their
youth
and
dreaming
about
joining the fun in paradise.
?Now Channel 4 have decided
to give millennials the same
experience,
after
Love
Island proved sun-kissed
hunks
and
beauties
frolicking in a tropical
setting can result in huge
ratings.
?While there have been
similar shows recently, like
The Island and Mission
Survive, they are all about
making people miserable
by forcing them to fight for
their lives in the wild.
?On
Shipwrecked,
the
biggest
hardship
the
castaways faced was getting
tan lines. It should go
down well with the snowflake
generation.?
Shipwrecked was one of the
earliest reality shows, launching
on Channel 4 way back in 2000.
It ran for three series before
going off air in late 2001.
In 2006, it came back with a
new ?battle of the islands?
format
where
rival
tribes
competed to recruit newcomers
in a bid to be the largest group
and take home up to �0,000
in prize money.
In total, Shipwrecked ran for
eight series, with a final
?back to basics? edition on E4
in 2012.
The show marked the first
TV
appearances
of
JEFF
BRAZIER
and
SARAH-JANE
CRAWFORD, as well as Celebrity
Big Brother winner STEPHEN
BEAR.
Anyone wanting to follow in
their footsteps had better start
doing sit-ups now.

Strictly lover?s a
cha-cha-cheat
Dear Deidre
I?VE been having sex with
a woman I met at the
Strictly Come Dancing tour
? but she already has a
boyfriend.
I?m a single guy of 33 and haven?t
had a girlfriend in two years.
My sister is a mad Strictly fan.
She had tickets for one of the
shows but her best friend caught
flu and couldn?t go.
Ballroom dancing isn?t my scene
but I agreed to keep her company.
We found our seats and I was
next to this lovely girl who was
there with her mate.
She fell in my lap when she was
trying to go out during the
interval and we both laughed.
When she came back I jumped
up, saying: ?I?m not taking any
chances this time.?
It broke the ice and she told me
she was 36 and she?d loved ballroom dancing since she was little.
She lives only a few miles away
from me. The conversation just
flowed. I asked her whether I
could have her number at the end
of the show and she put it into my
phone. I couldn?t stop thinking

about her ? she was gorgeous. I
texted her the next morning
saying I?d loved meeting her and
we arranged to meet for a coffee.
She said she had a boyfriend
but moving in with him had made
their relationship worse, not better.
She explained he didn?t want to
do anything as a couple and their
sex life was dire.
She said: ?I never feel desired
by him any more. I might as well
just be his friend.?
We met in a wine bar a few
days later when her fella was
away on a stag weekend. She
invited me back to her place and I
knew this was the moment. We
kissed and it felt amazing.
She led me through to her
bedroom and the sex was the best
I?ve ever had.
We?ve been meeting regularly
since. We?ve even had sex in our
lunch hour at my place. I know
it?s wrong as she?s attached but it?s
just so exciting.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It might be but you
only have sex keeping you together
right now. If you had the chance to
make her your regular girlfriend,
would you take it? Or is it the thrill of
the chase and being caught which
adds to the excitement?
If you have feelings for her, be
honest and tell her. Ask whether she?s
prepared to take the plunge too and
leave her boyfriend for you.
If she will, then give her a bit of time
and space to sort everything out.
If not, then don?t get sucked into
what will be a dead-end, no-strings
relationship because you?ll end up
getting hurt.
My e-leaflet Your Lover Not Free?
explains the pitfalls of this kind of
situation. You may then decide that it?s
time for you to get back into the dating
game, to find somebody free for a
special relationship.

to your husband that your
orgasm depends on his care
and skills as a lover.
You are more likely to
consider his sexual needs if
he shows consideration for
yours. My e-leaflet Love And

him understand the changes
you are experiencing.

about missing him or

Dear Deidre
MY daughter is seeing a boy
who is an emotional wreck
since his mum left the family.
This guy and my daughter
are 16 and it?s a difficult time
with GCSEs looming. He has
an older sister but she?s
married, so there?s just him
and his dad at home.
I help to run a trampolining
club where my girl and her
boyfriend are members and I
can sometimes hear the way
he talks to her. He sounds
very low at times.
My daughter has told me he
finds it hard to trust women
now and asks if she?s going
to desert him too. And he?s
controlling, telling her which
friends she can have.
She?s worried he?ll do
something silly if she doesn?t
do as he says. I?m worried
too. Should I contact his dad,
or the school, or leave it alone?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Contact
his dad and explain you?re a
concerned parent and
coach at the club and worry
his son isn?t coping well.
Suggest he contacts the
school to arrange some
counselling to help the lad
through his exams, and
perhaps his dad can speak
with him now he?s aware.

MY boyfriend won?t tell his
family that he?s in a gay
relationship.
He?s 19 and I?m 21 and we
met at university during
freshers? week. We became
an item three months ago.
I?ve told all my family about
us, although it was difficult,
but he shows no sign of
sharing his excitement about
our relationship.
He?s told a couple of
friends at university we?re
together but he won?t tell his
parents and family at home.
It feels as if I?m the only one
making it real. If he is too
scared to admit he?s gay, I?m
worried that this relationship
may never work.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Putting
pressure on him to come
out before he?s ready may
push him away. Coming out
to your own family was
difficult and maybe he fears
his is more homophobic.
Three months isn?t that
long together. If he wants to
introduce you as a friend,
where?s the harm in that?

and he can find support

THE medical advice you
receive might be more out
of date than you realise.
Last month, experts
revealed that rest and
painkillers are no longer
considered the best
treatments for back pain.
LAURA STOTT looks at
other common ailments
and popular wisdoms to
see how medical advice
has changed over time.
Shirts on
the button
TIP
DOCS GO
BACK ON
ADVICE
ADVICE THEN: Rest if you
have backache.
ADVICE NOW: Sore spines
are a recurring condition for a
third of sufferers. But experts
have dismissed the idea you
should put your feet up and
rest. Medical bible The
Lancet now suggests the
opposite is true and the best
way to beat back pain is to
stay active and keep moving.
THEN: You can catch a cold
by going out with wet hair.
NOW: Cold and flu bugs are
caused by viruses, which you
can?t catch without exposure
to lurking germs. While going
outside in freezing
temperatures with sopping
hair will probably make you
feel chilly, experts believe it
won?t make you any more
vulnerable to these viruses.
THEN: Eating late can make
you gain weight.
NOW: Diet plans often claim
calories consumed after 6pm
are a sure-fire way to pile on
the pounds. But it is now
thought the overall amount
eaten daily has more impact
on your waistline than when
you eat. A healthy, balanced
diet and exercising sensible
portion control is the best
way to avoid weight gain.
THEN: Cracking your joints
causes arthritis.
NOW: There is no proof that
clicking, cracking and
crunching noises from
knuckles, ankles, knees and
shoulders means joint health
is deteriorating. The noises
are caused by gas bubbles in
joint fluid being released by
movement. Unless there is
pain or swelling, it is probably
harmless.
THEN: Eating chocolate
gives you spots.
NOW: Skin experts now
agree that individual foods,
such as chocolate, do not
directly cause acne. While
scoffing Dairy Milk isn?t solely
responsible for breakouts,
dermatologists admit a
balanced, low-sugar diet is
key for a clear complexion.
THEN: Feed a cold and
starve a fever.
NOW: Starving yourself and
limiting food intake won?t
help your body fight off the
flu. For both bugs, staying
hydrated and consuming
nutritious foods is crucial for
getting better.

2 tbsps butter, melted
2 tbsps chopped tarragon leaves
Salt and pepper, to taste
For the salad:
1 courgette, cut into spirals using

1 large carrot, cut into spirals
1 avocado, finely sliced
A handful of pine nuts
For the lemon butter sauce:
2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps fresh lemon juice

Pepper, to taste
PREHEAT the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Blend
the tarragon with breadcrumbs and add
salt and pepper. Once fully blended, stir in
the melted butter.
Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large pan

LOVE GURU REVEALS
By LAURA STOTT
HOW far would you
go to make him put
a ring on it?
Controversial dating coach
Sami Wunder claims wannabe
wives should scrap playing
cosy couples when they want
their bloke to propose ? and
make him sit up and take
notice by seeing other guys.
Self-styled ?Get The Ring?
teacher Sami has been helping
women find men and persuade
them to go down on one knee
for the past two years.
And so far her unconventional
commitment-capturing methods,
dubbed ?rotational dating?, have
resulted
in
96
engagements,
numerous pregnancies and many
more happy-ever-afters.
German-based Sami?s tactics
came from her own experience
as she tried to find a soulmate.
The 29-year-old, who previously worked as a consultant for
an
international
development
organisation, says: ?Eight years
ago I was single, going through
an intense dating period and I
knew something had to change.
?I wanted marriage and kids
but men I met just wanted to go
to the bedroom.
?I wasn?t OK with being test
driven. It was heart-breaking
and it made me feel cheap.
?I saw one man for two
months and really thought he
was The One ? until he ended it.
That was when I realised I was
treating men as the prize and I
needed to be the prize for them.?
Sami?s
dating
lightbulb
moment came from watching
how love rivals would successfully bag their diamonds.
?Don?t chase him ?
see other men?
She noticed some women who
went on to land their dream
man initially stayed cool around
the object of their affections.
Instead
of
clamouring
for
official girlfriend status, they
were still playing the field and
continuing to have other flings.
Sami, who calls the women she
coaches The Wunder Divas, says:
?I saw the best way to get a
man to commit was to decline
being his girlfriend in the beginning and to continue seeing
other men. The more you like a
man, the more you need to step
back from him. Don?t chase him,
don?t ask him where it?s going,
do not let him become the catch
?? remember YOU are the prize.?
Soon afterwards Sami, who is
originally
from
India
but
currently commutes between the
UK and her home in Germany,
met her husband Chris, who
works in the aerospace industry.
They met while both studying
at the University of Berlin.
Sensing the 31-year-old was
The One, she tested out her new
multiple dating ? or ?rotational?
? tactics. She refused to commit
and continued dating other guys
unless Chris was prepared to be
her ?forever man?.
Sami says: ?After two months
Chris and I went for lunch and
he said, ?Where is this going? I?d
like you to be my girlfriend?.
?I told him I really liked him
but I didn?t want to be any
man?s girlfriend. I wanted a
family, kids and to settle down
and I would not accept any
commitment less than marriage.
?Of course I didn?t want to put
pressure on him and it was his
choice to stay or leave. But until
he made a solid offer, I said I
would like to keep my options
open in a non-sexual way and
be open to the man who was
ready for a full commitment.
?I still remember his first
reaction ? shock, disbelief and
silence. We kissed goodbye and I
did not hear from him for two
days. Then he asked me out
again. On our next date he told
HOW TO GET HIM
AND KEEP HIM
DO NOT
USE THE
SEVEN CS
1. Criticise
2. Complain
3. Compare
4. Coddle
5. Correct
6. Control
7. Change
BUT DO
IMPLEMENT
THE THREE As
1. Appreciate
2. Accept
3. Affirm
me I had really ?made him think?
about what he wanted out of
this, and he would love to see
where the relationship could go.?
It worked, and nine months
later the couple married. It is
now
five
years
since
their
wedding and they have a twoyear-old son, Aaron.
After achieving her dream of
having a family, Sami realised
her rotational dating insights
could help other unlucky-in-love
ladies secure fianc閑 status.
Sami says: ?Rotational dating
simply means dating more than
one guy at a time, and that
when you meet someone you
think could be your future lifepartner,
you
should
initially
refuse to be his girlfriend.
?You continue spending time
with other men and only offer
your commitment and exclusivity
to a man who is prepared to
offer you the same in return.
?Be upfront about it. Explain
that, for now, you are still seeing
other people and tell him if you
sleep with them you will say so.
?The method is for women who
know they want to settle down
and be a wife.
?It isn?t manipulation. It?s
about owning your worth in
front of men and not wasting
time accepting less than you
want. If you want marriage and
multiple dating means the guy
you like stops calling you and
disappears, then he is not interested enough.?
Sami, who also refers to herself as a Get-Wildly-SuccessfulAt-Love coach, insists her dating
advice is not necessarily about
passionate bed-hopping.
She says: ?Seeing several men
doesn?t mean sleeping with them
all. If you want to have sex on
your different dates then it?s your
shout. But I would always advise
holding off as long as possible.
?Instead, have connection dates.
Go for coffee or walks and talk.
Not having sex won?t frighten a
man if he?s serious about you.
?Always remember you want
him to crave that commitment
with you.?
Sami claims she has advised
around 40,000 women worldwide

TRICKS TO LANDING MR RIGHT
Make your
iend
boyfriend
propose...
by dating
other guys
SAYS RELATIONSHIP GURU
Sami Wunder
What is
rotational
dating?
SUCCESS
. . . Sami with her
husband Chris
MISSION . . .
Sami tested
her dating
methods
while wooing
her future
husband
on
love
through
her
online and offline dating
communities.
But,
once
you have secured a rock
and made your vows, it
takes work to make the
relationship last and Sami
says the key is having
distinct individual roles.
She says: ?A couple
needs one partner to
have masculine energy
and the other to have
feminine energy.
?Masculine
energy
means things such as
planning, seizing the
lead and taking action.
And the role of feminine
energy
is
to
receive it, to be soft,
allow things and to be
in the moment.
?It?s
OK
if
a
woman
wants
to
have the masculine
energy, but I believe
in a couple women
should apply their
feminine energy.
It?s not about
being weak or a doormat. Men
enjoy being masculine.?
Sami
also
says
coupled-up
women should avoid what she
labels
the
?seven
Cs?.
She
explains: ?Criticising, complaining,
comparing, coddling, correcting,
controlling and changing. All of
these will push men away.?
Instead, they should implement
the ?three As?, which are to
appreciate, accept and affirm their
man. These, she insists, will
inspire his love.
?Don?t rush into
saying I love you?
She says: ?With the obvious
exceptions
of
unreasonable
behaviour, stop trying to change
your man and accept that his
habits are here to stay. Men will
never respond to nagging. They
thrive on appreciation.?
Sami also cautions that women
should not be lulled into saying
the L-word too early.
She says: ?Even if you?re feeling
the urge, don?t rush into saying, ?I
THE idea is to see multiple partners
and not commit to one man until he
is ready to commit to you.
The technique also involves
holding off on sex for longer,
focusing on dates that will help
you ?connect?, such as going
for walks. And don?t be
the first to say: ?I
love you.?
love you?. It?s better if he says it
to you first.?
Sami?s one-on-one love coaching
does not come cheap. Packages
start from just under �750 ?
while a five-month intensive programme, designed to help women
attract a partner and get that proposal ? costs �,300. For even
more
loaded
singletons,
six
months of individual coaching will
cost �,000.
But those without that kind of
cash should not despair.
Sami also offers free advice
online at samiwunder.com, or you
can buy her e-book dating manual, called Your Feminine Roadmap To His Commitment, for �.
And despite protests from some
members of the opposite sex
about her methods, which can
seem designed to cold-heartedly
?hook? them, Sami insists: ?I?m
not anti-men. I love them.
?Blokes think I?m against them
but they aren?t honest with themselves about what they want.
?They try to fight it but really
they like it, that?s why it works.?
I GOT BACK
ON TRACK
By KRIS HALLENGA
THIS column serves so many
purposes. It teaches you about what it
is to live a life with cancer, shares the
goings on of a life-saving breast
cancer charity, gives me an
opportunity to talk about my cat
obsession and ultimately lets me
remind you to check your boobs.
If you are a regular reader, you?ll
know on the whole I focus on positive
stuff. That?s because most of the time I
am well, getting on with life and cancer
doesn?t really obstruct my plans.
I think it?s important to be honest at
all times, so that I don?t paint only a
pretty picture of having this disease,
no matter how well I seem to be coping
on meds and the fact I am surviving it
longer than most.
You deserve the full picture. What?s
the point in leaving out the rubbish bits?
In January I was told my cancer was
progressing, in my liver and my brain.
This sent me in to a tailspin because
I wasn?t expecting bad news. In fact, as
I spent time on holiday in Sri Lanka and
Hawaii, I felt the best I had in a while.
I found it hard to believe I?d managed
to sprout quite a few new brain lesions
in that time.
Positive news
A new plan was needed, in which I
sought the help of new people who
could help me physically and mentally.
I had to carve out a new path, say no to
certain treatments and yes to others.
Anyone with cancer will know there
is no clear route to getting better. One
thing that may work for one person can
have the opposite effect on another.
Fast forward three months and after
brain treatment involving zapping 15
tumours and a change of drug to help
my liver, I got the news that my cancer
is once again stable.
I am not sure I?d be telling you this if
I hadn?t got positive news last week.
But while I want to share good news
and the struggle it?s taken to get here, I
want to reiterate this has been my life
for nine years.
You are never out of the woods. But
what I can now do with a mere morsel
of good news is breathe again. My
shoulders feel lighter and I can stop
going mad with every small pain I feel.
I am tired but it?s not the cancer that
is exhausting me. It?s the constant
need to be switched on, to think one
step ahead of cancer, learn how to
cope, guide my way to being OK with
whatever might happen.
This is the stuff they don?t tell you.
While I still have cancer, and I?m every
bit as screwed as I was nine years ago,
I will relish this day with a renewed
outlook and a much fuller pair of
lungs. Until next time.
Just coppafeel and look
out for the following...
LOOK for changes
in skin texture
such as puckering
LOOK for swelling
in your armpit or
around collarbone
FEEL for lumps
and thickening
LOOK for constant
pain in your
breast or armpit
LOOK for change
in discharge
LOOK for a
change in size
and shape
LOOK for nipple
inversion and
changes in
direction
LOOK for a rash
or crusting of the
nipple or
surrounding area

You are adjusting to the serious strength of Saturn, surprising
yourself with your ability to turn down easily won rewards and
take on hard work. A task you have delayed speeds through the
moment you start it. In passion terms, partners sense you are a
keeper, no matter what, and love is so special.
There is a sense of life and love repeating itself but, even if you
have been asked for promises or guarantees many times
before, try to answer like it is the first time. If you are attached, a
little emotional me-time goes a long way. Single? You could
bump into new love where your favourite food is served.
If there is a deep change you want to make, choose the early
morning as a starting point. A business group of three is ready
to expand, so move yourself up their wish list with a strategic
call or chat. Others find themselves drawn to you, including
someone you have been interested in for as much as two years.
Switching from patience to high expectations in a love bond
may not feel a natural move but is right for this moment. As
soon as you show you want commitment, a partner responds.
Single? A ?will we, won?t we? connection turns into love over a
coffee. Luck plans a double visit to door 55.
Your strength at work or in personal plans is that you are not
afraid to draw a line under past events and try something new.
Build your brand by tapping into Venus? caring power to boost
your people skills and your ability to persuade. Love speaks
your name quietly in a noisy room but you hear it so clearly.
This is a strong love day for you, as you are prepared to go the
extra mile emotionally. Partners will respond with promises or
plans that are so genuine. If you are single, don?t give up even if
a love interest hesitates. You will get a second chance. You feel
close at heart to someone working away.
A family turnaround linked to ?S? can be resolved if you give
yourself enough thinking time. The rest of your chart is perfect
for togetherness, as work names reunite and a perfect lovematch starts to look even better. Jupiter thrills you when you
hear a set of familiar numbers being read out loud.
You have answers to communication questions ? but maybe
they aren?t what others expect. So switch on full tact when it
comes to revealing them. However much you deny you want a
personal change, deep down you know you do. Your best
chance of winning is linked to your favourite make of car.
Look closer at people and projects that take up too much time
and goodwill, then set a time limit. Some chart decluttering is
starting and you will emerge from it feeling positive. Working at
togetherness is worth it in love. Single? You will be drawn to a
newcomer who tells great jokes and has an irresistible smile.
Your own sign is now the most creative and exciting, helping
bring out the part of you that pushes boundaries. Lifting some
restricting rules just a little leads to meeting and matching with
some life-changing faces. Your pleasure measure is higher
than ever before and the love in a partnership doubles.
A heart-touching day for romantic words. If you are single,
someone you first see singing or reciting lyrics can be your
soulmate. Current partners will be swept away on a wave of
thrilling promises. At work, reluctance to let your true motives
be seen fades away and you win support for precious plans.
Holding back words or actions in case something better is out
there is not the right love route for you. When both partners are
upfront, you can build a new and better reality. If you are single,
the moon is urging you to act fast to get closer to someone who
transforms houses into dream homes.

Quit . . . ad boss Sir Martin
SORRELL
?NOT AD
HIS FILL?
SIR Martin Sorrell, who
resigned from ad giant
WPP after a misconduct
probe, is likely to stage a
business comeback.
Sources said Sir Martin,
73 ? who founded WPP
33 years ago and turned it
into a multi-billion pound
company ? was not someone who would ?sit around
growing roses?. But it was
too early to say what he
would do next.
He resigned after losing
confidence in WPP?s board
and because he wanted to
put his family ? and the
best interests of WPP ?
first following allegations
that he had misused company funds.
WPP said the amounts
involved were not material
and the investigation had
finished. The nature of the
reasons for the probe ?
and its outcome ? are
not known.
Sir Martin, who has
denied wrongdoing, quit on
Saturday saying the allegations were ?putting too
much unnecessary pressure
on the business?.
Yesterday WPP?s share
price fell by 6.48 per cent
to close at 1,111.00p.
CITY
Sun
COMMENT
SIR Martin turned a 1985
investment in a wire shopping basket manufacturer
into an advertising giant
with more than 200,000
employees.
His departure has many
ramifications.
Clients including Ford,
Mars and Shell could walk.
WPP ? a sprawling network of ad agencies ?
is now vulnerable to a
break-up.
The next CEO will battle
declining ad spending and
the growing threat of web
giants cutting out agency
middlemen.
In short, WPP is facing
its biggest challenge since
the global financial crisis.
Sir Martin?s successor
certainly has their work
cut out.
GOOGLE?S
APP FIGHT
A TECH minnow used by
TESCO MOBILE is taking
on GOOGLE in court.
UNLOCKD, which provides
software that rewards
smartphone users for
viewing adverts when they
unlock their phone, has
been kicked off the tech
giant?s Google Play store.
It has applied for a High
Court injunction, accusing
Google of abusing its
dominant market position.
Unlockd, in which Sun
owner Rupert Murdoch?s
son, Lachlan, has a stake,
has postponed its market
debut in Australia until the
issue is resolved.
Google claims that
Unlockd breaks its app
store policies.

revealed
at
the
weekend it had snapped up
a six per cent stake in
Costa?s owner Whitbread ?
wants
to
demerge
the
coffee
chain
from
its
stablemate Premier Inn.
It is pushing for Costa and
Premier Inn to become two
separate listed entities in the
belief that it would boost value
and create jobs.
The investor believes they are
too different to stay together.
If separated, Costa could be
worth up to �illion while
Premier Inn has an estimated
value
of
�illion.
That
adds up to more
than
Whitbread?s
current market capitalisation of nearly
�illion.
News
of

?
which
employs 50,000 people
in the UK ? sent its
shares up seven per cent

she wanted to finish revamping

Mr King, who joined in

The firm said: ?After

nCRACKSMAN, due to have
his first race of the season in
the Prix Ganay at Longchamp
on April 29, will work before
racing at Newmarket today.
Mark Johnston?s Elarqam,
a top 2,000 Guineas fancy,
will also have a spin as he he
continues his preparation for
the May 5 Classic.

when his nap bet Make It

GREYHOUND SELECTIONS AND SP CHECK
Paul Nicholls? star, owned

Cogry a neck last year to
follow up his 2016 win
over Alvarado.

late withdrawal from

ED?S SUN DOWNER
ITV racing anchor Ed Chamberlin says he was
?cursing? when he saw the sun on Grand National
Day. Peak viewing figures reached 8.5million for the
5.15 Aintree thriller, up 300,000 on last year but 1.5m
less than the last time it was on Channel 4 in
2016. Chamberlin (right) reckons the good weather was to blame as families went out in the sun.
He said: ?When I saw the sunshine on Saturday
morning I was cursing!? The good news for ITV
was a whopping 60 per cent audience share.
Chamberlin said: ?To get that is fantastic.?

TEMPLEGATE?S TOP TIPS
HAVE your Say in Newmarket?s Fielden Stakes.
MSAYYAN (4.45, nap) was unlucky not to win on
debut but made no mistake next time. The easy ground is
not a worry and he is bred to improve this season for the
top team of John Gosden and Frankie Dettori (below).
HISTORY WRITER (2.25 Newmarket, nb)
caught the eye on debut last year at
Sandown. He will be a better three-year-old.
MAFAAHEEM (4.10 Newmarket, treble)
can get his season off to a flyer. He put
in some decent performances last year and,
having been gelded over the winter, can take a
big step forward today. This trip suits.

GARCIA?S TEXAS HOPE
YOU cannot accuse Sergio
Garcia of looking for a soft
touch as he returns from his
horror 13 at The Masters.
The Spaniard will tee off this
week at the Texas Open in San
Antonio ? the course where Kevin
Na set a PGA Tour record SIXTEEN
at one hole.
Na?s train wreck came at the 474yard par four ninth, a treacherous
tree-lined hole that also features
rocks and scrubby brush.
The American ran into all those
hazards as well as playing three off
the tee ? and picking up another
penalty when his second ball
bounced back off a tree and hit him.
After a couple of left-handed
swipes he found the fairway with
his 12th shot, took three
more to reach the green
and sank a five-footer to
end his misery.
Na (left) showed a
good sense of humour
by returning the next
year with a chainsaw
and asking if he could
perform tree surgery on
the ninth.
Garcia, 38, certainly knows how
tough San Antonio can play ? he
took his first steps into golf
course design as a consultant
when the Texas track was given
a major facelift eight years ago.
Like Na, he reacted well to
the humiliation he endured on
the par-five 15th at Augusta,
where five balls disappeared into
the lake by the green.

to
the
feel-good

OLDIE & CROCK STEAL THE SHOW
ONE is an old age pensioner
and the other is an old
crock.
Yet strikers Peter Crouch and
Andy Carroll showed the next
generation
of
highly-tuned
athletes a few old tricks in East
London last night.
Back in January the football world
was sniggering quietly as first West
Ham?s injury-prone Carroll and then
Stoke?s
37-year-old
Crouch
were
linked with shock moves to Chelsea.
It was never more than transfer
window mischief but after this match
it does not seem so laughable now.
For it was not until the big men ?
6ft 7in Crouch and 6ft 4in Carroll ?
came off their respective benches
deep into the second half of a
tedious
match
that
there
was
anything on display resembling the
self-billed best league in the world.
From frustration to 20 minutes of
utter chaos and a frantic end to a
night which ultimately helps the
home side far more than the visitors.
Joe Hart?s cock-up will dominate
the debate, but under the radar, two

DILLON
old soldiers proved their worth to
their clubs.
The closest Crouch and Carroll
will get to the World Cup this
summer is watching on TV and that
will suit their clubs just fine.
As someone put it succinctly last
night in the post-match debrief ?
Carroll would get injured playing
Question of Sport.
His appearance on the bench last
night was a shock in itself. An ankle
injury was meant to keep him out
for the rest of the season. Last night
was the first showing of any kind
for his club since January 4.
He has scored only three goals in
another campaign blighted by his
sickness record.
But all that will be forgotten for a
while after he equalised in the 90th
minute with a sweeping half volley
from Aaron Cresswell?s cross.
Before that the hosts looked to be
undoing all their recent good work
against Southampton and Chelsea by
losing at home to a team struggling
in the bottom three.
Stoke have not won an away
match since October 28 ? at Watford
? but they looked on course for that
after Hammers stopper Hart handed
them a gift-wrapped goal.
Crouch had only been on for nine
minutes when he pounced on Hart?s
error. With his build he could never
move easily at the best of times but
at his advancing age it is an
achievement in itself for him to lace
up his boots.
Yet the former England forward
showed remarkable athleticism to
react quickest when West Ham failed
to clear their lines properly.
While the back four dithered,
Stoke?s Joe Allen was alert enough to
spot Xherdan Shaqiri and laid a tidy
pass back to his team-mate on the
edge of the West Ham box.
Shaqiri?s shot threaded through a
crowd of players but should have
been easy meat for Hart.
Instead, the on-loan Manchester
City keeper fumbled and planted the
ball right in front of Crouch who
merely had to prod the ball across

the line. Crouch was more surprised
than anyone at the ease with which
he helped himself to his first goal
since last November. He moved even
quicker to leap into the away end
and celebrate with the Stoke fans.
They in turn rounded on 30-yearold Hart by chanting ?England?s
number four? at the man who was
once nailed on as our country?s No 1.
That position now belongs to
Jordan Pickford. But there is still a
fight on to be the Everton keeper?s
understudy at the World Cup.
And even more agonising for Hart
is that Stoke?s Jack Butland, 25, is
his main rival to be first reserve.
Moments earlier he had pulled off
a stunning save to push clear a
forceful Cresswell free-kick, with
England
boss
Gareth
Southgate
watching in the stands.
Butland was beaten a further three
times but two were clear offside
decisions against Marko Arnautovic,
who seemed too eager to prove
something against his former club.
The other was when Carroll
handled while tangling with Ryan
Shawcross in the build-up to Javier
Hernandez?s last-gasp strike.
Crouch and Carroll are England?s
past but there wasn?t a great deal on
display last night that will cheer
Southgate in the here and now.
The most composed performer on
the pitch last night was Declan Rice.
West Ham?s 19-year-old defender
is already a mature, elegant and
reliable performer.
What is most frustrating for
Southgate is that Rice was born in
London and is eligible for England.
That is still the case despite him
having played a first-team friendly
for Ireland in the last international
break ? but Rice is nailing his
colours firmly to the tricolour.

?It is dangerous

if

is
good,
how do you sign him?
?Sometimes you need
to anticipate and say, ?OK
this player can be good

to the World Cup.
?But you need to sign
before
the
tournament
starts because he is doing
well and then you have a

Guardiola never doubted himself or
his style of play which had produced
such outstanding successes in Spain
and Germany.
But, privately, he admitted to those
close to him he had perhaps underestimated the competitiveness of the
Premier League.
As those friends know, with Guardiola
the highs are very high but, equally,
the lows are very low and he had
some serious thinking to do.
City had finished the season with
four straight wins to at least guarantee a Champions League spot, but he
had wanted ? and expected ? more
from the season.
Just two days after the final
game came another trauma for
Guardiola as his wife, Cristina,
and daughters were caught up
in the Manchester Arena attack.
They were attending the ill-fated
Ariana Grande concert which saw 22
people killed by a suicide bomber.
Yet rather than letting the tragic
events of May 22, 2017 affect him and
his family, Guardiola has embraced
life in Manchester all the more since
then.
He was instrumental in the design
of
new
state-of-the-art
dressing
rooms at the Etihad which were
ready for the start of the season.
On the walls, is a line from the
poem written and read out by Tony
Walsh in the days after the bombing
? ?Some are born here, some drawn
here but we all call it home.?
In addition, Guardiola has insisted
on the players listening to Wonderwall,
one of the biggest hits from legendary
Mancunian band Oasis, when they
arrive in the dressing room before a
game ? as SunSport revealed earlier
this season.
A close friend of Noel Gallagher,
Guardiola?s own favourite song is
Don?t Look Back in Anger ? a song
that took on a special meaning to
Mancunians after the horrific events
at the Arena.
The older Gallagher said earlier
this season: ?Pep?s a dude. I have
been watching this club since I was
seven, 43 years now.
?To be part of it a little bit is like
every little kid?s dream.?
Guardiola has also started to put
down some roots in the city.
He
bought
the
�7million
apartment he initially moved into in
Salford Quays, while several of his
coaches have also invested in the
same block.
Cristina has made it into a home,
while their three children are happy
and settled at school, meaning Pep ?
a big family man ? is more relaxed.
Along with Ferran Soriano and
Txiki Begiristain, he is investing in a
swanky new city centre Catalan tapas

By OSCAR PAUL
GARY NEVILLE slammed
Manchester United?s stars
? claiming Jose Mourinho
cannot fix their problems.
United?s shock 1-0 loss
to West Brom on Sunday
gifted the title to bitter
rivals Manchester City.
Boss Mourinho blasted
his players? attitude after
the game ? which came
just a week after their 3-2
win over City at the Etihad.
And
United
legend
Neville believes Mourinho
must go out and buy ?big?
players this summer.
He rapped: ?It was an
appalling performance.
?Jose mentioned the
words ?inconsistency? and
?attitude?. That?s difficult
to coach out of people.
?He has to identify the
issues in his squad causing this and deal with it at
the end of the season.?
Discussing United?s summer plans on Sky Sports,

?They?ll be big players.
Defence needs reshaping,

JOSE
AN OASIS OF CALM . . . City?s dressing room with Tony Walsh?s poem
bar which is due to open this
summer.
But Pep?s major concern was what
would be on the menu on the pitch
at the Etihad this season.
Together with Soriano, Begiristain
and chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak,
they set to work on plotting their
path to glory this season.
Guardiola, a man who once ordered
that all pitches at the Etihad campus
should be cut to a length of 19mm,
did not let the grass grow under his
feet.
The
first
signings
?
�m
Bernardo Silva and �.9m keeper
Ederson ? arrived within weeks of
the season finishing.
With
his
children
at
school,
Guardiola
stayed
in
Manchester
rather than heading off on holiday
during the close season. He worked
long hours to start the preparations
for the 2017-18 season and began to
think how he could improve things.
He has encouraged his players to
learn English, noticing the likes of
David Silva and Sergio Aguero still
spoke little despite their long spells
here.
And he also tried to foster a sense
of togetherness, urging the players to
walk out and back in as one, while
always celebrating goals together.
On Pep?s instructions the players
now have breakfast and lunch at the
training ground as he wants their
eating habits to be monitored so they
avoid weight gain.
It is fruit and cereals for breakfast,
fish, lean meat and vegetables for lunch.
Along with his sports psychologists,
he has tried to get the message
across about what it means to be
from Manchester ? and represent
City. Skipper Vincent Kompany is
one who has put that into practice,
talking about the character traits of
Mancunians in his many media
interviews.
On the pitch, the season itself did
not get off to a great start with City
beaten by neighbours Manchester
United in Houston in the first game
of their USA tour.
Guardiola told his players in the
dressing room afterwards to remember
that feeling of losing a game and to
take it with them into the season.
It must have stuck with them,
though, as it would be early December
before they experienced it again ?
and even then it was in a Champions
League dead rubber against Ukrainians
Shakhtar in Donetsk.
Pep has also learned to trust his
players more over the last 12 months
and has cut a relaxed figure around
the City Football Academy. The players
have been allowed to spend the night
before home games with their families
rather than in CFA accommodation.
He brought in a female dietician
last year from Munich and he still
feels the squad eating together at the
Etihad is important.
However, players are also taking
personal responsibility for their diets
away from the training ground ?
showing they trust in Pep?s methods.
The likes of Kevin De Bruyne and
Ilkay Gundogan have even enlisted
dietary personal chefs who come in
to cook for their needs and keep
them primed.
When he arrived at the Etihad
ahead of his unveiling 21 months ago,
he rolled up in a black cab.
Now he can look forward to enjoying
the view of his adopted home from
an open top bus.

?If I play a player

he plays the semi-final.
?It

because rotating looks like

Mourinho was livid with
the way his team threw
away all the good vibes
from the 3-2 derby comeback at City.
He added: ?I only know
one criteria for a manager
to choose a team ? the
way they play.
?Or do you want me to
go for the price they cost,
their salary or their

?Consistency has nothing to do with age, it has

OUR COLUMNISTS
IT doesn?t take much for
people to start putting the
boot in ? even when there?s
nothing to actually moan
about.
Pep Guardiola was probably
still teeing off at Sandiway on
Sunday when the snipes started
about his champions.
Forums were flooded and phone-ins
went into overdrive almost the second
Manchester
City
were
crowned
Premier League kings.
Of course, there were plenty of
punters keen to pay tribute to as
exciting and entertaining a side as
we?ve seen in many, many years.
But what amazed me was the
number trying to claim it was
nothing special because, with all that
money, City had just bought the title.
I have to say that is absolute
RUBBISH and always guaranteed to
get my blood boiling.
Yes, City HAVE spent cash ? but so
have pretty much everyone else.
And if it was that easy, how come
those sides haven?t had crowds on the
edge of their seats and ? if not
taking City to the wire ? at least run
them closer?
Chelsea

�7.2million for Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger,

So don?t try to tell me putting your
hand in your pocket is the way to
guarantee success.
It simply doesn?t work like that.
The real art is not simply paying
big fees, it?s getting those players who
suit your structure and system.
Those players who will improve
what you already have and take it
forward.
Pep hasn?t always got it right in
the market but this year he most
definitely has.
It?s hard to find fault with any of
his buys.
There just seems to be an innate
jealousy
among
other
fans
and
an insistence on picking holes in
anything and everything. We should
be saluting Pep for the football he?s
played, his determination to do it the
right way, even when everyone said
he?d find the Prem too tough after La
Liga and the Bundesliga.
Well, he hasn?t just disproved that,
he?s made it look even easier ? City
really have been that impressive.
And while we?re at it, I don?t think
it?s fair to draw comparisons with
Arsenal?s Invincibles, United?s Treble
winners or any other past champions.
We KNOW you have to do it for
years to be considered true greats, so
let?s just hold fire on that score,
because City aren?t about to fall off
the mountain here.
Just be thankful to Pep?s team for
entertaining us so much, just like we
should be grateful to Jurgen Klopp
and Mauricio Pochettino for how
Liverpool and Tottenham play. Arsene
Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson
always produced sides that were great
to watch back in the day, too.
But let?s be honest, this season ?
beyond City, Liverpool and Spurs ?
there haven?t been too many others
who have played football the way we
love to see it.
For too many it has been a case of
avoiding defeat, rather than trying to
win . . . it?s
why
certain
managers
continue to survive.
So fair play to Klopp, fair play to
Poch and, most of all, to Pep.
That trio are responsible for most
of the thrilling moments and most of
what we?ll look back on with a smile.
We want the Premier League to be
packed with excitement and entertainment ? if it hadn?t been for them,
we?d have been very short of both
over the last eight months.

On
the

previous
occasions they failed to build
on their success.
But this time they have a

who feel this year?s
two trophies are just

will

summer,
with

defensive midfielder
and attacking player
the top priorities.
But there will be no
spending spree or squad
overhaul
as
the
building
blocks are already in place.
For so many years, they
relied on a core of longserving players like Vincent
Kompany, David Silva, Sergio
Aguero, Yaya Toure, Pablo
Zabaleta and Joe Hart.
But a new generation has
emerged in the last three
years which has the potential
to eclipse what that legendary
group achieved.
City have defenders who
could see them through the
next five years with Ederson,

By MARTIN BLACKBURN
Stones and Aymeric Laporte,
who are all 23.
Then up front they have
Raheem Sterling (below), 23,
Leroy Sane, 22, and 21-yearold Gabriel Jesus.
Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne
is almost a pensioner at 26
but believes they have a team
for the future.
City?s Player of the Year
said: ?The club has planned
for this and we want to make
that happen now.
?It?s no coincidence that
the
type
of
players
brought in over the
last year or two have
all been of a similar
age and we will
look to build as a
group together.
?The
feeling
amongst the squad
is great. We have
enjoyed the season a
lot but there is work to
do if we want to achieve
more in future.
?That can be the trickiest
thing in football, to not only
win but keep winning.
?Having such a young squad
will hopefully help us to
achieve that.?
For many, this is their first
Premier League medal and
midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is
sure it will give them the taste
for more.
The German said: ?It?s our
first title as a group of players
under the new manager.
?We have developed together
and there is a lot of potential.
What we all have to do now is
work hard and believe in our
ability to keep succeeding.?
At least one more midfielder
is likely to arrive in the
summer
to
give
more
competition for Fernandinho
and Gundogan.
And De Bruyne knows it is
important not to stand still
and to push on.
The Belgian added: ?We
will see what happens in
the summer.
?Of course it?s important for
the club to add new players
and to keep getting stronger.
?Hopefully that will take us
on to another level.
?Competition will be even
tougher next season and we
have to be ready for that, not
only in the Premier League
but in the Champions League
and cup competitions too.?
Gundogan warned it will be
a huge challenge to retain the
trophy next season.
The
midfielder
saw
Guardiola?s
Bayern
Munich
side win three back-to-back
titles in Germany.
He added: ?The competition
in the Premier League is much
harder than in Germany.
?We have five or six teams
who are all able to win the
league and that makes it
incredibly difficult.
?But we are ambitious and
we aim to win every game.
?If we continue with this
mentality,
then
there?s
no
reason we can?t continue in
this way.?
No aggro for Aguero
SERGIO AGUERO was delighted to
finally win a Premier League title
without a nail-biting finale.
The Argentine (right) scored one
of the most famous goals in the
history of the competition in 2012.
His 94th-minute winner against
QPR at the Etihad saw City nick
the trophy from right under the
noses of Manchester United.
Two years later, Manuel Pellegrini?s men beat West Ham on the
final day to hold off Liverpool.
This time City won it with a
record five games to spare and
By MARTIN BLACKBURN
Aguero said: ?This is my third title
with City and it?s just a relief not
to have to wait until the final day.
?For players like David Silva,
Vincent Kompany and Yaya, it?s
even more special because it?s
another title we?ve won together.
?This season?s been incredible,
the football has been the best I?ve
been involved in at the club.
?Now the trick is making sure
we kick on again next season and

LEICESTER have warned
rival clubs eyeing Harry
Maguire to START the
bidding at �million ?
or stop wasting their time.
Arsenal, Tottenham and
Manchester United would
love to prise the centrehalf, 25, away from the
King Power this summer.
SunSport can reveal the
Foxes have already had
TWO verbal offers of over
�m for Maguire this
term and felt confident
enough to say ?no thanks?.
Leicester believe a good
World Cup for England in
Russia this summer would
allow them to TREBLE the
�m they paid Hull for
him last summer.
Since then Maguire has
blossomed into one of the
best ball-playing central
defenders in the country.
United
boss
Jose
Mourinho could try and
tempt
Leicester
into
selling by offering Chris
Smalling as part of a
player-plus-cash deal.
In the meantime, Foxes
chiefs are stepping up
their own efforts to bring
West Brom skipper Jonny
Evans to the club.
They failed to land the
30-year-old
last
year
despite
bidding
�m
for the Northern Ireland
international.
Evans has a get-outclause in his contract
which allows him to leave
for just � this summer,
once the Baggies? relegation is confirmed.
The Foxes are preparing
a bumper package worth
�0,000 a week in basic
wages plus a � signingon fee for Evans.

HUDDERSFIELD boss David
Wagner is being offered a
new deal to stay on as
their miracle worker.
Club owner Dean Hoyle
hopes to talk the German
into staying by giving him
a two-year contract on
better terms and bonuses.
Wagner is about to pull
off the remarkable feat of
beating the drop in the
Terriers? first Prem season.
Huddersfield had him
tied down for another year

made him a target. Southampton are big admirers.
He will collect around

bonus this season. But
that would go up if he

With 12million UK
households owning a pet,
we are clearly a nation of
animal lovers ? and would
do anything for our
beloved cats or dogs.
But what happens when
our furry friends have a
tough start in life or a
terrible accident?
We speak to six owners
about their incredible
animals who all beat
amazing odds to survive ?
and thrive.
Phoenix
TINY Phoenix was rescued from the
flames after being trapped under a
burning shed.
An RSPCA inspector found the
terrified six-week-old kitten in a garden
in Sunderland in June 2017.
She was rushed to RSPCA Felledge
Animal Centre, in Chester Moor,
County Durham, where she needed
round-the-clock
care.
The
tortoiseshell cat suffered severe heat
damage and lost fur on her ears,
paws, toes, tail and face.
Reception
supervisor
Luka
Atkinson, 29, and her partner Daniel
Brimer, 31, who works for the civil
service, adopted Phoenix after helping
her back to life.
Luka, from Sunderland, says: ?There
were so many times when we didn?t know
if it was kinder to put Phoenix to sleep,
rather than try nursing her back to health.
?She was weak and required
24-hour care. She needed antibiotics,
eye drops and daily bandage changes
on all four of her burnt paws. But I never
saw a hiss or a growl from her and I felt
sick at the thought of her not surviving.
Whyy ou
always
ys
But it was difficult to tell
what kind of life she?d have. Two weeks
into Phoenix?s recovery she purred for
the first time. She was bright and starting
to act like a normal kitten. Her skin began
to heal and her bandages came off.
?Now, although she looks a little
unusual and has little hair around her
eyes, she?s a normal cat ? just like my
other two Rory and Inca.
?Phoenix is a fighter - she?d have to be
to survive her horrific injuries.?
William
WHEN William was found, he weighed
just 3.2kg and had to wear a jumper to
keep him alive ? but now he is top dog
at his new home.
The greyhound-Saluki cross was so
thin he couldn?t even stand when
RSPCA officers rescued him from a
life of cruelty and neglect in
September 2015.
Now, the three-year-old pup lives
with press officer Rachel ButlerMallett, 30, her journalist husband
Chris Mallett, 34, and their other
pooch, 11-year-old Harry, a Westie.
Rachel from Burton-on-Trent,
Staffordshire says: ?When I first saw
William he was a bag of bones and
couldn?t stand. For the first 24 hours, vets
thought he wasn?t going to survive.
?William needed a jumper to keep him
warm. He was dangerously dehydrated
and malnourished, and his tiny body was
covered in sores because he didn?t have
the strength to move. Eventually, he
started to show signs of recovery and
was able to keep some food down.
?I adopted William to give him a better
life. He still has scars on his legs that will
never heal ? but he?s
now a completely different dog. Like all
greyhounds he?s a bit lazy ? but when
he?s not asleep, he?s running around my
back garden with my 11-year-old Westie
Harry. They adore one another.
?Both dogs were a big part of our
wedding in October 2016. Harry had the
more responsible role of ring bearer,
while William was our page boy.
?William is like our child ? and I feel
proud that he?s overcome so much.?
Romney
LITTLE Romney was abandoned by his
mum and found in a skip when a
mechanical digger was sorting
through rubbish last year.
Sadly, one of his siblings was killed ?
but Romney and three others survived
and were hand-reared at a Blue Cross
Rehoming Centre in Suffolk.
Now, the black and white kitten
lives with stay-at-home mum Fen Garrard, 43, and her husband, self-employed window cleaner Luke, 43, and
their three children George, 18,
Lewin, ten, and Darcy, eight, near
Woodbridge, Suffolk.
Fen says: ?Romney is an absolute
star. His eyes were still shut when he was
found by builders in a skip. One kitten
had sadly been killed by the mechanical
digger ? but it?s amazing to think that four
of them survived. The litter of kittens
were just days old and tiny. They would
have been very difficult to spot.
?When we first got Romney in January,
he was 13 weeks old. His whiskers were
very short and stubbly as he?d missed
out on nutrition from his mother?s milk
and he?d also lost some fur. But two
months on and his fur is
lovely and his whiskers have almost
grown back. Romney has fitted into our
family home just perfectly. He has built-in
playmates with our Bengal cat Mouse
and ginger puss Rufus. Romney has the
loudest purr out of all our cats.
?He?s a sweet kitten, loves to climb and
follows me around the house because
he knows I?m in charge of the food.
?Romney defied all the odds to survive
? it?s just fantastic.?

Annie
ANNIE was just a week old when she
was found trapped in a hole and left to
die. The abandoned foal was discovered by walkers in a badger?s den in
May 2015.
Thankfully, RSPCA officers managed to pull her free and the pony was
hand-reared at the Millbrook Animal
Centre, in Chobham, Surrey.
Now, the two-year-old lives with
owners Danielle Edge, 34, and her
husband Steven, 36, and their two
children Abigail, seven, and Kyle,
five. The couple run Animal Edge, a
small farm, and live in Luton, Beds.
Danielle says: ?Not many animals
can survive without a mother at a week
old, but Annie is a fighter. It?s a mystery
how she ended up in a badger?s den. Did
she fall? Or was she placed there?
?It?s obscene to think that someone
could do such a cruel thing. And how she
survived, I just don?t know.
?When I first saw Annie I thought she
was beautiful. She was gentle with my
children and nothing seemed to stress
her out ? you?d never imagine what she
went through as a foal. At first, she did
not bond with our other
four horses but now I?ve had her a year
and she?s learnt how to be a horse.
?Annie is a gentle giant and loves nothing more than a good scratch and having
her belly tickled.
?Annie is a character, she?s part of our
herd and I?m so excited to bring her on.
I?m just glad we could offer her a loving
home with us after her horrid start in life,
she really deserves it.?
Alfie
ALFIE has a horrific history. He was tied
up and dragged behind a moving
car, then dumped on the streets of
Peterborough.
The Staffy cross was found by
RSPCA officers in November 2015
with deep wounds to his legs and feet.
Now, the four-year-old pooch has
been given a second chance at life by
owners Donna Lester, 32, a nanny,
and her partner Joseph Taple, 38, a
clinical pharmacist, and their
11-month-old son Cruz.
Donna, from Milton Keynes,
Bucks, says: ?I?ve got two babies ?
Cruz and Alfie, too. They?re like Tweedledum and Tweedledee and follow one
another around the house.
?Cruz watches Alfie?s every move. And
when I put Cruz to bed, Alfie will fall
asleep on the floor next to his cot.
?When I first heard that Alfie had been
tied up and dragged behind a moving
car, I cried. All of his skin had been
ripped off his stomach and back legs
and he was 24 hours from death. Who
could do that? He?d only been at the

Bromley
HE may only
have three legs
but that doesn?t
stop Bromley from
being the fastest
dog at the park.
The loveable mutt
was hit by a car in
December 2016 that left
him with a shattered pelvis and
close to death.
Two weeks later, vets at the
Blue Cross Victoria animal
hospital had to perform an
emergency leg amputation to
stem internal bleeding and save
the pup?s life for the second time.
Now, two-year-old Bromley lives
with veterinary nurse and animal
management lecturer Denise
Laughlin, 33, near Salisbury,
Wiltshire.
Denise says: ?I drove almost
200 miles to meet Bromley after
hearing his story. It?s awful to think
that he ended up homeless and
on the brink of death, twice.
?Bromley is incredibly lucky.
When I first brought him
home from the rehoming
centre in Suffolk in
February 2017, I had to train
him to be less anxious
around cars.
?But now Bromley is the
fastest dog in the park. He
is constantly on the hunt
for another dog who
wants to run and run.
?Most people don?t
even notice he has three
legs. It?s only when he
stops and stands still
that their jaws drop.
?But no one should
feel sorry for him ?
having three legs
doesn?t bother him.

Bromley waiting for
homes at rescue
centres is awful.

FROM hamsters to
alpacas, the vets at
Skeldale treat all animals
? regardless of their size
or shape.
But what happens on an
ordinary day at the former
practice of James Herriot?
We hear from former
Herriot-trainee Peter
Wright, 61, who has been
a vet for nearly 37 years,
about a typical day at
the surgery . . .
6.15AM: I wake up to the phone ringing. It?s a poorly calf that has suspected pneumonia. I immediately head
downstairs for a quick bowl of porridge with some rosehip syrup and a
cup of Yorkshire Tea because I never
know when I?m going to eat again.
I hop into my trusty Land Rover
Discovery Sport and drive the six
miles to nearby Kepwick. I give the
calf some intravenous antibiotics and
something to help the lungs improve.
7.30AM: I?m about to leave when I get
a call from a farmer who?s caught a
vicious feral cat. He?s noticed there?s
something unusual hanging from the
cat?s rear and is concerned.
Farmers are very kind and they
don?t like to see suffering. I tell him to
bring the cat into the surgery.
8.30AM: At the practice, the cat is
very unhappy about being caught. It
spits and swipes at me and I can?t
take a proper look.
I need to anaesthetise him ? but I
have to wait until his stomach empties
which could take several hours.
9.15AM: I?m heading out to the foot of
the Hambleton Hills. I?ve received a
call from a farmer about a ewe that
has recently given birth to three
lambs. The poorly ewe is suffering
from toxic metritis ? an infection of
the uterus ? something I see frequently
during lambing season. I treat her
with antibiotic pessaries and give her
some injectable antibiotics.
A grumpy cat, a
bloated bunny
and an enema
for Woody the
Jack Russell ...
day in life of The
Yorkshire Vet
12.45PM: I manage to anaesthetise the
grumpy feral cat. The wild tom has
somehow managed to slice his scrotum
open and has clearly been in pain for
several days. I castrate the animal and
the farmer returns to pick him up
later that afternoon so he can be
returned back to the wild.
1.30PM: I?m off to help a client?s cow
to calve at a nearby farm. Limousin
cows are fairly large and they?re very
good mothers but this little calf was
upside down and in the wrong position. I need to turn him around so
that he can be delivered. By the time I
leave, the bull calf is sitting up quite
happily.
Any birth of an animal gives me the
most wonderful feeling. It?s a sign of
springtime and fresh hope. Even after
37 years in practice, I still get a tremendous buzz from bringing animals
safely into the world. It puts a real
spring in my step.
2.35PM: A hard-working Border Collie
is brought into the surgery with a suspected broken leg. But an X-ray
reveals that arthritis in his toes and a
sprain is the reason for his limp. Some
anti-inflammatories will settle the pain.
3.10PM: Sometimes my job does get
me down. I have to put a little Yorkshire Terrier to sleep who is very old
and has started to have seizures.
Although the owners are expecting it,
you?re never ready to lose a pet. And
it?s hard to see people lose a member
of their family.
3.45PM: I dash home for a bite to eat
and a cup of tea but I?m not there
long when I receive a call from an
owner who is frantic because one of
her three dogs has eaten rat poison ?
but she doesn?t know which. Rat
poison is an anticoagulant and stops
the blood from clotting. If left, it can
cause an animal to bleed to death.
At the surgery, I give all three dogs
an injection to make them sick ? and
it doesn?t take long before one little
Frenchie is throwing up bright bluegreen vomit. I give the guilty party a
Vitamin K injection in case any poison
has been absorbed and some Vitamin
K tablets, before sending all three dogs
home.
4.40PM: I see a little cat called Rosie.
She belongs to an elderly lady who
lives alone and the moggy is her dearest companion. As soon as I see Rosie,
I know she is very poorly. I take some
bloods which reveal that she has kidney and liver failure and will need to
be put to sleep. Giving that bad news
was painful as I could just see the
pensioner not realising that her companion would no longer be around.
10AM: I?m called back to the surgery
to see a Jack Russell named Woody.
Poor Woody is quite distressed. The
day before, he?d been given a mild
laxative for constipation by a colleague
but it hadn?t helped. Much to his
disgust, I give Woody an enema by
passing a tube up his bottom and into
his colon, flushing it out with 20ml of
soapy water.
Off Woody went to produce huge
piles of poo in our car park ? and
both Woody and his owner went home
with smiles on their faces. I like an
instant cure.
5.25PM: A poorly rabbit is my next
emergency patient. The bunny is suffering from a potentially life-threatening condition called bloat where the
stomach inflates. I ask the owners to
bring the rabbit into the surgery immediately, but as I am waiting, I receive
a call about a dog that has collapsed
in the middle of a field. Another vet
sees the rabbit, while I shoot off to
help Meg, a Bernese mountain dog.
Sadly, Meg has gone into heart failure
very suddenly and there is nothing I
can do but put her to sleep.
11.10AM: There?s no time for a break
before I?m off to see a young Boxer
called Eddie who we?ve been treating
for cancer for three months. Eddie is
very down and his owners wonder if
his time has come. But you have to
be absolutely certain about euthanising a pet as there?s no going back.
Eddie is not in pain, so together,
we decide to give him something
to make him feel better in the
short term. We know that it?s only
temporary but the owners want to
spend as much time with him as
possible.
6.30PM: I head back to the office to
write up my notes. I?m on my toes the
whole day because I don?t know what?s
coming through the door next ? but
I?m never bored.
12PM: It?s midday when a cat
called Trillion is brought in that
has passed blood in her urine. She
shows typical signs of cystitis and I
treat her with painkillers and some
antibiotics, before sending her on her
way.
8PM: I arrive home to a meal of beef
bourguignon that my wife Lin has lovingly made for me. It?s been a long
day and I?ve barely stopped ? but I
wouldn?t change my job for anything.
This is where I belong ? I?m a
Thirsky, born and bred.
HERRIOT A THIRSK HERO
THE beautiful Yorkshire
countryside, with its rolling
Dales and heather-filled
moorlands, is another star of
The Yorkshire Vet.
And the market town of Thirsk
features prominently in the
show. One of the most famous
?Thirskys? was a man named
Alf Wight. He is better known to
the world as James Herriot ? a
young vet who wrote eight books
based on his experiences in the
Yorkshire farming community.
His glorious tales of veterinary
life at Thirsk?s Skeldale, left ?
where The Yorkshire Vet is
filmed today ? have sold more
than 50million copies worldwide.
Later, his books, including It
Shouldn?t Happen To A Vet and If
Only They Could Talk were
adapted for the hit television
series All Creatures Great And
Small, which first aired in 1978.
But fame and fortune didn?t
matter to him. Wight once said:
?If a farmer calls me with a sick
animal, he couldn?t care less if I
were George Bernard Shaw.?
Alf Wight died in 1995 at the
age of 78 from prostate cancer.
But his legacy remains, with

CECH . . . battling
Loser Petr

By DAVID COVERDALE
PETR
CECH does not
have a clue why Arsenal
are so bad on the road.
The Gunners are the only
top-flight team yet to pick
up an away point in 2018,
having lost five straight
Prem games after Sunday?s
2-1 defeat at Newcastle.
Keeper Cech, 35, said:
?It is very difficult to
explain why because until
last season we were one
of the best teams in terms
of the away record.
?Somehow it completely
reversed this season.
?We?re battling but still
haven?t found the answer.?
Arsenal boss Arsene
Wenger put defeat against
the Toon down to their
Europa League exertions
in Moscow on Thursday.
And Cech says he has a
point. He said: ?We?re in
two competitions, so we
must keep switching. It?s
difficult because everybody
else has a big advantage.?

OLDIE & CROCK STEAL THE SHOW
ONE is an old age pensioner
and the other is an old
crock.
Yet strikers Peter Crouch and
Andy Carroll showed the next
generation
of
highly-tuned
athletes a few old tricks in East
London last night.
Back in January the football world
was sniggering quietly as first West
Ham?s injury-prone Carroll and then
Stoke?s
37-year-old
Crouch
were
linked with shock moves to Chelsea.
It was never more than transfer
window mischief but after this match
it does not seem so laughable now.
For it was not until the big men ?
6ft 7in Crouch and 6ft 4in Carroll ?
came off their respective benches
deep into the second half of a
tedious
match
that
there
was
anything on display resembling the
self-billed best league in the world.
From frustration to 20 minutes of
utter chaos and a frantic end to a
night which ultimately helps the
home side far more than the visitors.
Joe Hart?s cock-up will dominate
the debate, but under the radar, two

DILLON
old soldiers proved their worth to
their clubs.
The closest Crouch and Carroll
will get to the World Cup this
summer is watching on TV and that
will suit their clubs just fine.
As someone put it succinctly last
night in the post-match debrief ?
Carroll would get injured playing
Question of Sport.
His appearance on the bench last
night was a shock in itself. An ankle
injury was meant to keep him out
for the rest of the season. Last night
was the first showing of any kind
for his club since January 4.
He has scored only three goals in
another campaign blighted by his
sickness record.
But all that will be forgotten for a
while after he equalised in the 90th
minute with a sweeping half volley
from Aaron Cresswell?s cross.
Before that the hosts looked to be
undoing all their recent good work
against Southampton and Chelsea by
losing at home to a team struggling
in the bottom three.
Stoke have not won an away
match since October 28 ? at Watford
? but they looked on course for that
after Hammers stopper Hart handed
them a gift-wrapped goal.
Crouch had only been on for nine
minutes when he pounced on Hart?s
error. With his build he could never
move easily at the best of times but
at his advancing age it is an
achievement in itself for him to lace
up his boots.
Yet the former England forward
showed remarkable athleticism to
react quickest when West Ham failed
to clear their lines properly.
While the back four dithered,
Stoke?s Joe Allen was alert enough to
spot Xherdan Shaqiri and laid a tidy
pass back to his team-mate on the
edge of the West Ham box.
Shaqiri?s shot threaded through a
crowd of players but should have
been easy meat for Hart.
Instead, the on-loan Manchester
City keeper fumbled and planted the
ball right in front of Crouch who
merely had to prod the ball across

than anyone at the ease with which
he helped himself to his first goal
since last November. He moved even
quicker to leap into the away end
and celebrate with the Stoke fans.
They in turn rounded on 30-yearold Hart by chanting ?England?s
number four? at the man who was
once nailed on as our country?s No 1.
That position now belongs to
Jordan Pickford. But there is still a
fight on to be the Everton keeper?s
understudy at the World Cup.
And even more agonising for Hart
is that Stoke?s Jack Butland, 25, is
his main rival to be first reserve.
Moments earlier he had pulled off
a stunning save to push clear a
forceful Cresswell free-kick, with
England
boss
Gareth
Southgate
watching in the stands.
Butland was beaten a further three
times but two were clear offside
decisions against Marko Arnautovic,
who seemed too eager to prove
something against his former club.
The other was when Carroll
handled while tangling with Ryan
Shawcross in the build-up to Javier
Hernandez?s last-gasp strike.
Crouch and Carroll are England?s
past but there wasn?t a great deal on
display last night that will cheer
Southgate in the here and now.
The most composed performer on
the pitch last night was Declan Rice.
West Ham?s 19-year-old defender
is already a mature, elegant and
reliable performer.
What is most frustrating for
Southgate is that Rice was born in
London and is eligible for England.
That is still the case despite him
having played a first-team friendly
for Ireland in the last international
break ? but Rice is nailing his
colours firmly to the tricolour.

Guardiola never doubted himself or
his style of play which had produced
such outstanding successes in Spain
and Germany.
But, privately, he admitted to those
close to him he had perhaps underestimated the competitiveness of the
Premier League.
As those friends know, with Guardiola
the highs are very high but, equally,
the lows are very low and he had
some serious thinking to do.
City had finished the season with
four straight wins to at least guarantee a Champions League spot, but he
had wanted ? and expected ? more
from the season.
Just two days after the final
game came another trauma for
Guardiola as his wife, Cristina,
and daughters were caught up
in the Manchester Arena attack.
They were attending the ill-fated
Ariana Grande concert which saw 22
people killed by a suicide bomber.
Yet rather than letting the tragic
events of May 22, 2017 affect him and
his family, Guardiola has embraced
life in Manchester all the more since
then.
He was instrumental in the design
of
new
state-of-the-art
dressing
rooms at the Etihad which were
ready for the start of the season.
On the walls, is a line from the
poem written and read out by Tony
Walsh in the days after the bombing
? ?Some are born here, some drawn
here but we all call it home.?
In addition, Guardiola has insisted
on the players listening to Wonderwall,
one of the biggest hits from legendary
Mancunian band Oasis, when they
arrive in the dressing room before a
game ? as SunSport revealed earlier
this season.
A close friend of Noel Gallagher,
Guardiola?s own favourite song is
Don?t Look Back in Anger ? a song
that took on a special meaning to
Mancunians after the horrific events
at the Arena.
The older Gallagher said earlier
this season: ?Pep?s a dude. I have
been watching this club since I was
seven, 43 years now.
?To be part of it a little bit is like
every little kid?s dream.?
Guardiola has also started to put
down some roots in the city.
He
bought
the
�7million
apartment he initially moved into in
Salford Quays, while several of his
coaches have also invested in the
same block.
Cristina has made it into a home,
while their three children are happy
and settled at school, meaning Pep ?
a big family man ? is more relaxed.
Along with Ferran Soriano and
Txiki Begiristain, he is investing in a

and chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak,
they set to work on plotting their
path to glory this season.
Guardiola, a man who once ordered
that all pitches at the Etihad campus
should be cut to a length of 19mm,
did not let the grass grow under his
feet.
The
first
signings
?
�m
Bernardo Silva and �.9m keeper
Ederson ? arrived within weeks of
the season finishing.
With
his
children
at
school,
Guardiola
stayed
in
Manchester
rather than heading off on holiday
during the close season. He worked
long hours to start the preparations
for the 2017-18 season and began to
think how he could improve things.
He has encouraged his players to
learn English, noticing the likes of
David Silva and Sergio Aguero still
spoke little despite their long spells
here.
And he also tried to foster a sense
of togetherness, urging the players to
walk out and back in as one, while
always celebrating goals together.
On Pep?s instructions the players
now have breakfast and lunch at the
training ground as he wants their
eating habits to be monitored so they
avoid weight gain.
It is fruit and cereals for breakfast,
fish, lean meat and vegetables for lunch.
Along with his sports psychologists,
he has tried to get the message
across about what it means to be
from Manchester ? and represent
City. Skipper Vincent Kompany is
one who has put that into practice,
talking about the character traits of
Mancunians in his many media
interviews.
On the pitch, the season itself did
not get off to a great start with City
beaten by neighbours Manchester
United in Houston in the first game
of their USA tour.
Guardiola told his players in the
dressing room afterwards to remember
that feeling of losing a game and to
take it with them into the season.
It must have stuck with them,
though, as it would be early December
before they experienced it again ?
and even then it was in a Champions
League dead rubber against Ukrainians
Shakhtar in Donetsk.
Pep has also learned to trust his
players more over the last 12 months
and has cut a relaxed figure around
the City Football Academy. The players
have been allowed to spend the night
before home games with their families
rather than in CFA accommodation.
He brought in a female dietician
last year from Munich and he still
feels the squad eating together at the
Etihad is important.
