OUTRAGE OF COMMONWEALTH
WINDBLUSH
By STEVE HAWKES
THERESA May was
dragged into the Windrush row last night
as it emerged old
landing records were
binned on her watch.
A
whistleblower
revealed
thousands
of
slips documenting the
arrival of West Indians
and their kids in the
1950s and 1960s were
destroyed in 2010 when
she was Home Secretary.
It came just 24 hours after
it emerged immigrants who
sailed to the UK on the
Empire Windrush and other
ships
faced
deportation
unless they could prove residency and ?build up a picture? of their time here.
The row forced the PM to
rip up her plans and meet
Commonwealth heads of state
for peace talks in London.
She said she was ?genuinely sorry? for the anxiety
caused and dispelled the
idea the Government was
trying to clamp down on citizens from the region.
But Jamaica?s PM Andrew
Holness publicly shamed her
by winning a round of
applause when criticising the
Government over its handling of the affair.
Mrs May?s spokesman last
night said the landing slips
were destroyed on the orders
of officials in the nowdefunct UK Border Agency
as part of an office move.
He insisted they would not
have been able to prove residency ? unlike a utility bill
or marriage certificate.
But Labour MP David
Lammy stormed: ?This revelation reveals the problems
being faced by the Windrush
generation are not down to
one-off bureaucratic errors
but as a direct result of systemic incompetence, callousness and cruelty within our
immigration system.
?Who is going to take
responsibility

or access to healthcare.
On Monday, Home Secretary Amber Rudd apologised
for the ?appalling? treatment.
She said no one would be

the Commonwealth summit.
The
Aussie
Commonwealth Games, which ended
on Sunday, banned plastic
balloons
and
provided
refills for water bottles.
PEERS last night demanded Theresa May
find an extra �0million to help migrants
learn English and heal broken communities.
The Lords citizenship committee panned
the Government over the shelving last month
of the delayed Integration Strategy.
It urged the PM to agree to
the demand by Dame Louise
Casey, right, for more cash for
English courses for ?speakers
of another language?.
Lords said councils could
help find the money by cutting
the number of documents
translated without any idea if
people want to read them.

being axed from a cabinet role.
The Tories have tabled a debate
on the matter today. But Labour

the Welsh Assembly?s Presiding
Officer Elin Jones stating that
she had ?acted unlawfully? by
accepting the motion.

She said she ?deeply

Mrs May urged them to

She

?Nobody should face discrimination or persecution because of who they

EXCLUSIVE by KATE JACKSON
A MAN was who battered, stabbed and starved by his
girlfriend from hell revealed yesterday that he was ten
days from death when he was finally rescued.
Alex Skeel was repeatedly attacked by control freak Jordan
Worth, who also poured boiling water on him and threatened to
run him over and kill him if he tried to escape.
She made him sleep on the floor for nine months and kept him from
talking to his family and friends. But Worth was the first girlfriend Alex
had ever had. Yesterday he told The Sun: ?I suppose I thought to myself
this was how relationships were, but I know now it wasn?t normal.?
Even when worried neighbours called police, 22-year-old Alex pretended
his injuries were self-inflicted.
He was taken to hospital with
burns to his arms and legs, which
he had tried to treat by wrapping
in cling film.
Medics found further burns and
stab wounds, but still Alex returned
to the house he shared with Worth,
also 22, in Stewartby, Beds. Finally,
days later, a police officer persuaded
him to tell the horrific truth.
Alex said: ?He saved my life. He
sat me down in his patrol car and
said, ?Look, I know what?s going on.
These wounds were not committed
by you. Just tell me the truth?.?
Worth was arrested and Alex was
taken to a hotel for the night and
given a McDonald?s meal.
He said: ?I hadn?t eaten properly

it was the best meal I?d had in all

THE
SAYS
Build for future
IF the Tories don?t solve the housing
crisis, they won?t just be guaranteeing
their own downfall.
They?ll be destroying a whole generation?s trust in capitalism and the free
market whilst they?re at it.
A new report suggests that more than
a third of ?Generation Rent?, those aged
between 21 and 38, may never have the
chance to buy their own home.
The blame can?t just be placed on this
Government. But the Prime Minister
and Housing Secretary Sajid Javid have
had more than enough time to think.
Fiddly changes to planning law and
endless re-announcements of new
towns aren?t enough.
Tearing up planning restrictions; linking up new housing developments with
cash to build decent infrastructure;
and giving proper incentives to councils
and local people to let developers build
must all be part of the solution.
As for the Green Belt, the Adam Smith
Institute reckon you could build a
million homes within walking distance
of existing railway stations, barely
touching our pleasant pastures.
The Tories are odds-on to take a
kicking in cities in the upcoming local
elections. The lack of decent, affordable
housing is the biggest reason why.
It?s time for a little less conversation and
a little more action, please.
Warm to Brexit
BRITAIN?S thermometers are set to soar
this week and the economy?s on the up, too.
Employment is at an all-time high, the
IMF?s finance wonks have upgraded
their forecasts for the UK and finally
wage growth is higher than inflation,
boosting Brits? spending power.
It comes on the back of surveys last
week confirming British businesses are
as confident as they?ve been in months.
Even Goldman Sachs boss Lloyd
Blankfein last week admitted he was
wrong about the impact of Brexit.
The Remoaners who still can?t turn
their frowns upside down are now
surely only grumpy because they?re
choosing to be.
Global Britain is revving up nicely.
Mac-wrong
EMMANUEL Macron has been described
as a French Tony Blair. He certainly shares
our former PM?s disdain for democracy.
Just as Tony can?t quite believe people
voted to leave the EU, Macron has been
busy telling the continent?s bigwigs that
Europe is in a ?civil war? between
nationalism and globalism.
What he meant was that Hungarians,
Poles and others who?ve been ignored
for years have stood up to Brussels.
We?re not necessarily fans of some of
Europe?s strongmen leaders, but they?re
in power because people voted for them.
Macron?s answer, predictably, was
more Europe. Plus 鏰 change.
Thank heavens we?re on our way out.

A WITHERING VERDICT ON OUR
TROUBLED HOME SECRETARY
AMBER DUD
By
DAMIAN
THOMPSON
OUR
ambitious
Home
Secretary Amber Rudd
was called ?the Silver
Spoon? by her former
husband, the sardonic
restaurant critic A.A. Gill.
The nickname still fits his
former wife to perfection ?
and never more so than
this week.
The Home Office has been
sneakily
trying
to
deport
members of the Windrush
generation
of
Caribbean
immigrants and their children
who arrived here in the 1950s.
It
was
an
unspeakably
shabby thing to do, as Ms
Rudd was forced to admit
when she apologised to the
Commons on Monday.
?Frankly, some of the ways
they have been treated has
been . . . appalling and I am
sorry,? she said.
But was Ms Rudd really
sorry
for
this
?appalling?
behaviour? MPs didn?t think so.
Instead, the Home Secretary
seemed
anxious
to
shift
responsibility on to her junior
ministers and Whitehall staff.
She sounded like the lady of
a country house blaming her
butler for forgetting to decant
the claret.
It?s a tone of voice that
comes naturally to her ? the exinvestment banker spent her
childhood in an exquisite 17th
Century mansion near Bath.
Elegant detachment
Ms Rudd moves in the same
circles as her brother, the PR
schmoozer Roland Rudd, who
is one of Britain?s richest and
most fanatical Europhiles.
She?s unlikely to encounter a
Windrush immigrant as she
digs into her quinoa souffle at
a Holland Park dinner party.
And I doubt that she has
spent much time in Hither
Green,
the

Mr
Osborn-Brooks and launched
a murder investigation. Charges

of Sun readers signed a
petition against this absurdity.
Amber
Rudd,
meanwhile,
maintained
her
elegant
detachment from it all. This
is not her world.
Fair enough, you may say.
She isn?t the first Tory Home
Secretary to grow up in a
country house. There?s nothing
wrong with that, so long as
they roll up their sleeves in
government and implement
Conservative policies.
But Ms Rudd is not on top
of her brief ? and that?s
putting it politely.
There have now been 60
murders in London this year,
meaning it has overtaken New
York for homicide rates ?
and jeopardising the Tories?
reputation as the ?party of law
and order?.

Earlier this month, Ms Rudd
went on television to deny
that a terrifying 20 per cent
annual rise in knife crime
and other violent offences
in England and Wales had
anything to do with cutting
police numbers by more than
20,000. Pure coincidence.
Then, the very next day, a
leaked Home Office report
said the opposite. The police
cuts were ?likely? to have
encouraged the use of guns
and knives by street thugs.
The Secretary of State?s
response? ?I haven?t seen the
document. There are lots of
documents that go round the
Home Office.?
Yes, she really said that ?
this time in a tone of voice
that suggested it was the head
gardener?s fault for not telling
her about the deer chewing
up the flowerbeds.
Say what you like about

Tories
make
her shudder. Ms Rudd, by
contrast, is sailing her sleek
yacht under a Conservative
flag of convenience. There is a
story that has rumbled around
Westminster for years that
when Rudd decided to enter
politics, her only hesitation
was over which party to join.
All that interests her is the
destination: No 10. The only
mystery is why she is so
glaringly unsubtle about it.
Ms
Rudd
has
barely
hidden her ambition to enter
Downing Street.
Time to schmooze
Earlier this month, The Sun
revealed how she hosted a
secret
fundraiser
where
millionaire Tory donors paid
�000 each to attend, amid
Cabinet speculation that she
has been courting up to 80
backbenchers in preparation
for a tilt at Downing Street.
She has been turning up at
other MPs? constituency events
to help campaign but also
finding time to schmooze with
Tory association chairmen who
have a key role in choosing
the next party leader.
The PM also quipped that
David Cameron had warned
her to ?worry about ambitious
female Home Secretaries?.
Rudd
has
recruited
the
CAPITAL IN CRISIS . . . police at the scene of fatal stabbing
pollster Lynton Crosby?s firm
to run her next election
campaign in Hastings and
Rye, further fuelling speculation of a leadership bid.
But perhaps most startlingly
indicative of her ambition was
the grotesquely rude comment
she made about Boris Johnson
? an often touted possible
future leader ? during the
televised Brexit debates.
In an apparent reference to
the ex-London Mayor?s tumultuous love life, she said:
?Boris, he?s the life and soul of
the party. But he?s not the man
you want to drive you home at
the end of the evening.?
As for hiring Samantha
Cameron?s stylist to boost her
?power dressing?? Why doesn?t
she
just
start
measuring
the curtains for No 10 now.
(Answer: Because that?s the
housekeeper?s job.)
Fortunately, it doesn?t look as
if she will make it to No 10.
She can?t power dress her way
out of her recent calamities.
And
frowning
petulantly
is hardly going to win over
Tory MPs or the Labour
Eurosceptics she despises.
If Amber Rudd wants to
sulk, I know just the right
place for her ? that sour
corner of the Tory backbenches
occupied by Anna Soubry and
other over-promoted Europhiles
who can?t contain their fury at
the loss of their careers.
If Ms Rudd loses her job,
come the election she?ll be
defending a tiny majority of
346 in Hastings and Rye. Or
possibly not. This is a lady who
wants the top job or nothing.
If she falls victim to a
reshuffle, she?ll have air-kissed
her way out of Westminster
long before polling day.

They claim a ?drugfuelled swingers party?
took place at their

to take their young

8.15am. Then, when she
returned, they had a

Luna then fell asleep
until 1.25pm, saw that
Ivana, inset, had gone
and promptly fell asleep
again until 5pm, when
the police woke her to
say the teenager had
been found dead on a
sixth-floor balcony.
The authorities say it
was an accident or
suicide, but Ivana?s
family believe a crime
was involved and are
investigating further.
I hope they get the

Just six years ago Jessie J was
the marque signing of the Beeb?s
new big-budget singing competition The Voice, taking her place
alongside music royalty Sir Tom
Jones and super producer Will.i.am
as one of the coaches.
At that time the Londoner, whose
real name is Jessica Ellen Cornish,
was the most talked about pop star
in Britain, with her early hits Do It
Like A Dude and Price Tag becoming teen anthems.
So what was Adele?s old Brit

Jessie, 30, explained: ?I feel so grateful that I was given the opportunity
to spark some kind of gap between
the two cultures. I feel like China, to
me, is another home now.?
And after her victory at the weekend, she declared: ?This show has
changed my life and made me a better person and a better performer.?

It has certainly made her a more
relevant performer again, albeit more
than 5,000 miles away from the
country that first embraced her ?
and where the rising star once had a
2010 session for The Sun?s Bizarre.
But tapping into the Chinese market could be a canny move and a
financially rewarding one. Showbiz
experts reckon Jessie now stands to
rake in around �MILLION.
Singer is huge in China. The show
is designed to give artists with some
experience of the music industry
another shot at fame. And the
winner?s prize is mega exposure to a
massive potential market.
Jessie certainly made the most of
her chance, progressing over eight
weeks into Sunday?s final ? watched
by more than a billion viewers.
A source close to the singer said:
?Jessie was entered just to remind
people what she could do.
?Also, in China they?re only bothered about her voice, not by what
she?s wearing or who she?s dating.
?But there was also a huge financial factor which can?t be ignored.?
Critics argue that the Asian market
could be a last throw of the dice for
Jessie, who is widely seen to have
hacked off audiences in the West.
They point to her once breathtaking arrogance and diva-like demands.
Towards the latter end of her time
on The Voice her backstage behaviour
even began to overshadow her unique
? some would say OTT ? judging
style, which grated increasingly on
viewers as the series went on.
The first sign that the show had
created a monster was when Jessie
banned boss Danny Cohen, then the
most senior figure at BBC1, from
entering her dressing room when he
tried to PRAISE her performance.
Her ego got so out of control she
stopped one of her solo performances
mid-set and insisted her band start
again. It was all captured on live TV.
Insiders believe her growing sense
of entitlement was enhanced by the
team in place around her, who ?constantly blew smoke up her a***?.
A TV source said: ?The diva in
Jessie wasn?t helped by her inner
circle. They refused to make her
accessible, despite her being on a
mainstream show. They made her
feel like the special one.
?She is a very intelligent girl and
extremely into her craft. Her pre-

preparations
and
aftershow recoveries could never be interrupted and that quickly became
known on set.
?She was the ultimate diva, which
irked producers because Tom and
Will were by far the more seasoned

kid on the block.
?But lots of people also thought she
was very conflicted.
?Behind the scenes she was unsure
and lacking in confidence but then
she?d act like a diva, screaming, ?I
don?t need to rehearse!? when the
offer was put to her.
?She was inwardly nervous but outwardly full of bravado.?

how to deal with it, especially when

The strange
resurrection
of Jessie J
her how great she was.? In March
2013, just before her second series
on The Voice, Jessie showed a more
humane side when she shaved off
her long black locks for Comic
Relief, raising �0,000.
But it wasn?t enough for the British public, who were now falling
out of love with her music, too.
After the monumental success of
the singles Price Tag and Domino
from her debut album, her second
album, Alive, flopped.
Feeling
unappreciated,
Jessie
moved to America.
In 2014 she hit No1 with Bang
Bang ? a collaboration with Nicki
Minaj and Ariana Grande ? but in
the same year Burnin? Up, from
third album Sweet Talker, scraped
to No73. And Masterpiece, the
album?s third single, only got to
No159. Meanwhile, there was continued speculation about her sexuality ? which she often fuelled.
Jessie, who proudly labelled herself bisexual when she burst on to
the
scene,
also
backtracked,
describing it as ?a phase? and saying she wanted to marry a man.
?Jessie will be the
Man City of singers?
She also said: ?In America they
see me as a singer, whereas people
here don?t appreciate my voice.?
Two years later she hit out at the
Brits organisers for failing to
recognise her achievements.
She blasted: ?It makes me sad.
I?ve
done
the
Grammys,
The
VMAs . . . My profile in America is
that I?m considered as one of the
greatest singers and I love it. I
wanna be up there with the Celine
Dions, the Whitneys, the Beyonces
and Arethas. I go hard because I
hope and pray that one day, people
look back and go, ?She could really
f***ing sing, you know?. Which is
why I keep going.?
While working on her songwriting away from the spotlight in
the US, she took a break Down
Under as a judge on the Australian
version of The Voice. During this
time she had a change of management, handing the keys of her
career to brothers Joel and Benji
Madden ? her fellow Voice coaches
? of US band Good Charlotte.
After an enforced break from the
spotlight due to ?health issues?, Jessie embarked on a low-key comeback with a few minor releases and
a return to her familiar pop sound.
Then the Maddens entered her into
Chinese talent show Singer.
The move could prove a masterstroke, simultaneously grounding
her while feeding her ravenous ego.
One source said: ?There?s no
doubt a lot of that diva-ness went
on but she?s stripped it all back.
?She?s far more grounded now
and level-headed.
?Jessie knows she made some
errors and would approach things
in a different way now.
?She?s a changed woman and that
was reflected by her exploits in
China. She?s now extremely loved
over there. Her whole comeback
plan is going to change, with China
now at the centre.?
Jessie?s earnings are set to rocket,
too, on the back of lucrative

endorsements, record sales and

Entertainment expert and showbiz manager Professor Jonathan
Shalit said: ?If she gets it right, it?s

?We shouldn?t underestimate the
Chinese market, it was a genius
move by her and her management.
?Jessie had the courage to enter
and good on her.
?This will make her a global star
and move her right to the top of
the premier league ? she?ll be the
Man City of singers.
?She?ll sell out stadiums and
could become a huge TV star, while
also reinventing herself all round
the world.?
Hopefully this time without so
much of the ego.

JAKE AND DANIELLE SPLIT
DANCING on Ice hunk JAKE
QUICKENDEN has split from
fianc閑 Danielle Fogarty
seven months after popping
the question.
I can reveal the pair called
time
on
their
three-year
romance during a break in
Rome on Tuesday.
The split comes after a series
of explosive rows over Jake?s
partying with newly single Love
Island hunk and Dancing On
Ice co-star KEM CETINAY, with
Jake below.
Danielle, daughter of superbike legend CARL, who Jake
befriended
during
their
time together in the I?m A
Celeb jungle in 2014, is
distraught.
A source said: ?Jake
and Danielle have been
joined
at
the
hip
since her dad introduced them.
?But
winning
Dancing On Ice
has meant Jake?s
had other priori-
ties. He?s been touring the
country with Kem on the
show?s tour and getting a lot of
female attention, which hasn?t
been easy for Danielle.
?Things aren?t going to get
any easier on that front either,
with Jake set to join THE
DREAMBOYS strip group.
?It?s caused a lot of friction
and they?ve both decided to
take a breather.
?They are now in the UK and
are spending time with their
families. The wedding is very
much off for now.?
In awkward timing for the
pair, together below right, they
were due to pose for a
glossy mag feature yesterday but
sent photographers packing.
Jake
and
Danielle
have
looked every inch the perfect
couple since they fell for each
other in 2015, when Jake was
taken into the Fogarty fold.
Jake and Foggy hit it off in
the jungle when Jake came
second to the motorcycle ace.
But Jake, who proposed in
September, hinted at issues in
his relationship during his stint
on ITV?s Dancing On Ice in
January.
He was crowned winner with
skate partner VANESSA BAUER
but admitted his five-hour daily
rehearsals had left him too
tired to make love.
He said at the time: ?At

and I?m in pain, so it?s
on hold at the minute.
?I?m trying to protect
my groin.?

By MATT WILKINSON

AN injured rambler in
his
60s
handed
his
mobile to a passer-by to
call an ambulance ? and
the man stole it.
The walker, who had
slipped and broken his
ankle, could not get a
signal on his phone.
So he asked the passerby, who called himself
Harry, to take it, find a
signal then dial 999.
Harry agreed, wandered
away from the coastal
path near Swanage, Dorset, and never returned.
Another walker eventually came to the aid of
the injured rambler, who
was airlifted to hospital.

to drive, and doing all the
normal stuff you?d expect a
17-year-old to be doing.
But I want to tell you about what
happened to me when I was 15.
Because that wasn?t ordinary, or
anything that a 15-year-old should
have to go through.
It started on Twitter. It was the
Christmas holidays, and I tweeted
about feeling sad I wouldn?t see my
friends for a while because we live
far away from each other.
To get a reply from Michael, even
though I didn?t know him, was nice.
He seemed caring and understanding. I didn?t know he was more
than twice my age. I didn?t know
he was married. I didn?t know what
it would lead to.
I didn?t know about grooming.
Over direct messages on Twitter
Michael offered to send me Coldplay tickets, he complimented me,
and asked me to send him pictures.
We were messaging every day for
three months. Sometimes he?d block
me to try to manipulate me.
When I said I wasn?t ready to
meet, he emotionally blackmailed
me saying, ?You?ll never want to
meet me?.
Eventually one day when my
mum and stepdad were at work he
came to my house.
He told me what to do and I was
so scared I just did what he said. I
just stayed silent. He took advantage of me not being able to speak
and had sex with me. I felt like a
rag doll.
This went on for a few more
months, but eventually with the
help of my best friend and my
family, I told the police. Michael
was sent to prison. It?s a relief that
after all that?s happened that some
justice was done.
The reason I want to tell you this
is because I really want you to
make things better. I don?t want
anyone else to go through what I
went through. The police can only
help after something awful has
happened. But if social media sites
were safer, this sort of stuff might
never happen in the first place.
You?re in charge. You?ve got the
power to force Twitter, Facebook,
Instagram, Snapchat and all those
other sites to protect young people
from being approached by people
like Michael.
They should have to do something
if accounts used by adults are
being suspicious, or creepy or inappropriate with young people.
If there?s anything you can do,
rules you can make, or punishments
you could give social networks to
force them to protect young people
please just do it. You can stop this.
I?m a big fan of Wigan Athletic. I
use Twitter to follow football news
and I use Facebook to keep up
with my friends. I should be able to

?I have now deleted all my

?I?d say to any other girl that

Wood
contacted Gemma on Twitter after
sensing she was vulnerable.
He sent messages for three
months before travelling 45
miles from St Helens to her
Blackpool home while her parents were out.
Gemma later moved with her
family to Hastings, East Sussex,
and she finally went to police.
But even after being arrested
Wood set up a new Twitter
account to contact her.
She said of the original contact: ?He sent a message after I
tweeted I was lonely. I thought
it was a potential relationship.
?It started off with compliments
but
quickly
became
vulgar. I told him I was 15 and
he kept on until I agreed to
meet him. When he came to
my house there was nothing I
could do about it.?
In January Wood was jailed
for three years after admitting
three counts of sexual activity
with a child.
Now Gemma, studying for
A-levels,
is
backing
the
NSPCC?s #WildWestWeb campaign. It demands tough action
backed by a regulator with the
powers to issue fines.
A year ago a law banning
sexual communication with a

WE splash out on beauty
products to look like a
million dollars ? but all
those cosmetics we amass
and never actually use
could be turned into
hard cash.
I accumulated tons of stuff
in my years as a beauty
blogger and journalist. And
when I had a major clearout,
I made �0.
Research from Avon shows
that women spend around
�,000 on make-up products
during their lifetime.
So why not declutter your
bathroom cabinet and free
up some money while you
are at it?
Here is how I made a
mint selling off my unused
cosmetics.
DEPOP: I used this app
to sell unwanted highend beauty items. The seller
and PayPal fees, plus postage and
packaging costs, means it is more
worthwhile listing top brands such
as NARS, Mac and Estee Lauder
rather than drug store brands.
I MADE: �0
EBAY: Better for more unusual
stuff. A Veet waxing kit of
mine sold here within a week, but
it didn?t get a look-in on Depop.
I have also sold unused fake tan
discontinued make-up products on
eBay.
I MADE: �
CAR BOOT: Selling unwanted
stuff at a car boot is always
an option. But be warned, buyers
are reluctant to pay more than
50p for anything.
I MADE: �
FRIENDS AND FAMILY: Hosting
little parties is a great way to
sell your unwanted make-up. But
be prepared to lower your prices ?
the buyers are your loved ones,
after all.
I MADE: �
SOCIAL MEDIA: Pitch your
unused beauty and make-up
products for sale to a wider circle
of friends on sites like Facebook.
When using Instagram, make sure
you add hashtags of the brand
and product so your item surfaces
in users? feeds.
I MADE: �

HER STORY
WE have never considered taking
Viagra before because we don?t
have any issues at all in bed. We have
a great sex life.
But when Ed first told me he was
going to take Viagra, I was
very concerned because
he is ? how can I put
this?
?
very
protective of his
manhood.
I was worried
about the effect
of it.
In the chemist I
had serious issues
with my self-control,
which I admit was a bit
childish, but I had to spend a
lot of time browsing other
products to hide my
laughter while Ed asked
for the Viagra.
The
whole
?consultation?
took about ten
minutes,
and
seemed to go
very smoothly.
I
wondered
what
would
happen when he
took the pill.
Would
he
get
bigger? Would it
feel different?
We
were
actually a bit
tense around
each
other
when we were
having
dinner,
because there was
this burning issue in
the air. It was a bit like a
weird first date.
After our meal Ed was extremely, er,
enthusiastic.
He is always very keen on sex, we
both are, but this was something else
entirely. I kept asking him throughout
the meal, ?Are you feeling anything
yet? Is it working??
I definitely felt he was more turned
on and, from a girl?s perspective, the
main difference was that he
kept going for a lot longer.
He
was
so
concentrated, if that
is the right word,
and
it
was
definitely a great
experience.
Then after the
first bout of lovemaking, he was very
keen to get going
again.
Overall, the sex session
was lengthy ? around a
couple of hours ? and
very passionate.
But was it better?
Possibly from the
view of it lasting
longer, but on
balance it wasn?t
so much better
than our normal lovemaking.
I think it was Ed who
really felt the difference.
I then had to go out and
meet my friends for a
drink. When he rang me
in the pub to tell me
about his eventful
bike ride to the
shop (see right) I
choked on my
drink
I
was
laughing so much.
It was a hilarious
day, all in all.
I don?t think we will try it
again, though. We don?t need it,
whereas there are lots of couples out
there who do.
I?d worry about dependency and
the long-term effects of Ed taking it.

down to eat and I felt a bit flushed. I
found myself staring at Jess?s breasts
at the table. My mind was racing.
I wanted sex! I wanted sex now!
I made myself calm down. This was
psychological. The pills couldn?t work
that fast.
We?d barely cleared away the plates
when I was taking Jess by the hand
towards our bedroom, pulling off my
clothes and tripping over my trousers.
We started kissing, and I was so
aroused. Sex is always great between
us, so it?s very hard to quantify just how
much of this was normal desire and
how much was the pill.
Jess is so gorgeous I would have
been aroused anyway.
We started to make love and I felt a
definite difference. Normally I have to
work hard to control my response and
keep going but
with the Viagra I
felt that I could
go on for ever.
The key thing
it gave me was
longevity, meaning I could
spend
more
time
giving
pleasure
to
Jess.
We made
love for about
an hour, roughly
twice as long as a normal
sex session.
Then we had a rest and a cuddle ?
and I was ready to go again!
My recovery time was much quicker,
and again I could last a long time.
We then collapsed exhausted on the
bed. Jess turned to me and said,
?Wow.? I smiled. She then told me she
was going out with some friends.
I pottered for half an hour then
decided to nip out on my bike to the
shop. Only there was a bit of a problem.
Actually, quite a lot of a problem. My old
man was still ready for action.
Twice was clearly not enough, he
wanted more.
I?m not sure if you have ever tried to
ride a bike with an erection but I can tell
you it?s quite hard. I weaved down the
road then shuffled around the shop in
an odd, crab-like movement, hunched
over my trouser region.
On balance, we had a lot of fun.
Would I take it again, though? No. If
it ain?t broke, don?t fix it.

I WAS shaking when I approached
the pharmacist at Boots.
Jess and I have no issues in our sex
life and I?ve never had erectile dysfunction, or ever taken any pills to try to
boost my sexual performance. So I was
very worried I would be turned away.
I began rehearsing phrases in my
mind. ?Er, can you help me with some,
issues I have??
To me, Viagra has always been marketed at older guys who are ?past it?,
not young, fit, healthy blokes of my age.
I was really worried he would think
we were making it up and just buying
the Viagra for fun . . . which we were.
At first my voice came out rather
squeaky, so I decided to take the direct
approach: ?Do you sell Viagra over
the counter??
I was aware I was trying to sound
as manly as possible. Jess walked
away, taking a concentrated interest in

was very kind and

voice he said, ?Yes,

me a questionnaire
and ushered me into a
quiet area away from
the few customers in
the store.
The questions were very general,
about whether I had a heart condition,
any liver and kidney problems or if I was
taking any other medication. I also had
to show I was over 18.
The pharmacist then took me
through all the instructions on the box.
After paying, I grabbed Jess and we
all but ran out of the store. We had a
slightly hysterical moment outside, as I
realised just how tense I had been and
what a relief it was to finally get the pills.
On the way home on the bus I sat
there, my mind whirring. I?m always up
for a laugh, but what if the pills had a
negative effect? What if it was way too
strong? What if my penis exploded?
I didn?t confide any of these thoughts
to Jess.
Back home we busied about making

our minds.

WHAT? Loose Women,
NADIA?S
REGULAR
RECIPES
AFTER, 2010
LAST year Nadia stripped off
with some of her co-stars for
Loose Women?s empowering
Body Stories photoshoot ? a
huge deal for her after she was
?haunted? by body shaming
early in her career.
She said: ?I was doing a
sitcom. I was 9st 7lb and my
sister (Ab Fab actress JULIA)
was in the show as well and
very, very thin.
?The wardrobe mistress took
me out to get my clothes. She
said to me, ?You?re such a
difficult size, you?re nothing like
your sister.? I was devastated. It
haunted me for
years, that.?
Now Kaye
and Nadia ?
who has admitted that losing
4st for her 2010
fitness DVD
made her ?miserable? ? have
written a recipe book for
?regular? people. Nadia said:
?We love seeing these Instagram
posts of food with these
beautiful people, the perfect
avocado garnished with a kiwi ?
how many people live like that?
?We always look like a bag of
s***, our house is a tip.
?That?s how we wanted our
cook book to be.?

GIRLS UP FOR A
PARTNER SWAP
NADIA and Kaye have given
a new meaning to the term
?close
friendship?
by
admitting they would even
swap blokes for a night of
passion.
Kaye has revealed she
has her eye on Nadia?s

...and Denise makes
us weak at the knees
SINCE making their Loose
Women debut 19 years
ago, NADIA SAWALHA
and KAYE ADAMS have
seen plenty of strong,
glamorous females come
and go.
But some have left more
of an impression on them
than others.
The
hilarious,
straighttalking duo, right, poked fun
at the idea of becoming
?late-life lesbians? with fellow
panellists KELLY BROOK and
DENISE VAN OUTEN as I let
them loose on Bizarre TV.
Nadia said: ?I?ve never had
any tendencies, but I?ll tell
you who I think is really gorgeous is KELLY (inset below).?
Kaye
agreed:
?She
is
gorgeous. I sit and look at
her sometimes.
?But actually I wouldn?t,
as I don?t go for the
big-breasted woman.
?Most
people
have
thought
about it ? if
you did, what
type would you
go for?
?I don?t think
I could go for
JANET
STREETPORTER, as I?m
not into the older
woman.?
The pals eventually
said they would both pick
Denise, inset far right, as
their ?Loose Women crush?.
But Kaye insisted: ?Not at
the same time ? we?re not
that weird.?
The pair also told how
Loose Women is one big

Kaye added: ?It would

?But that?s not in any way

the pair discussed the
oddest places they have
had sex, with Nadia
admitting she once got
covered in bites ? but sadly
not of the love kind.

Lover is bigger
? and far better
Dear Deidre
I HAD an affair with a guy
who I met at a party. The
sex was awesome and I
can?t get it out of my head.
My husband and I had split for
a while and we desperately needed
that break. It was nobody?s fault
but so much had gone wrong, such
as him hating his job and his big
brother dying, then my best friend
moved away.
I?m 26 and he?s 28. We have two
little children to care for on top of
it all and the stress got too much
for us both.
We were arguing morning to
night and it got to be violent, I?m
really ashamed to admit. Not real
nasty stuff, just some pushing and
shoving but, when I hit him, I
knew that he had to move out.
He went to stay with a friend
and I missed him so much but we
both knew that we needed to have
time apart.
I went to a party one night
while my mum stayed the night to
look after the kids. I didn?t expect
to have fun but I did.
I met this amazingly goodlooking guy who turned out to be
the same age as me. We spent the

ONE or both partners in

night flirting and he gave me his
number. I called him when I got
back home.
We met up at lunchtime the
next day and had sex in his car.
He is so well endowed and it was
totally awesome ? and totally
wrong, I know.
For two mad, crazy weeks we
met up when we could and we
somehow had sex every time.
Then my husband found out. He
saw the guy dropping me back off
at home. We both cried and we
got back together again.
I love him so much. He?s my
soulmate and rock and we?ve not
argued since. So why can?t I put
that guy out of my mind?
I don?t really like him but the
sex was like nothing on earth and
I still can?t get over his size.
My
husband
isn?t
so
wellendowed and I know I won?t have
sex as good as that ever again.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Sex was amazing
but then it came without strings and
with no questions asked, no
complications on the side, simply sex
on a plate. If you stayed with that guy,
then the magic would very soon fade.
So forget about him, use your head
and your heart and focus on your sex
life with your husband. It can be just as
good and, in fact, so much better as it
comes with real love.
Your husband may not have the
inches the other man has but good sex
isn?t just a question of size.
My e-leaflets Manhood Too Small?
and Real Secrets Of Great Sex will give
you both lots of ideas.
Make time for each other, and not
just in bed. Not easy, I know, with two
small children but do call on your mum
to help out regularly so the two of you
get to unwind. Don?t wait for a crisis.
If tempers start fraying again, stop
and take ten. Don?t go back to
behaving the same way.

I AM squandering hundreds
of pounds talking to a guy in
a chat room. He says he?s 21
and I?ve told him I?m a 25year-old fireman. In fact, I?m a
54-year-old dad.
I?m divorced with two sons
and a daughter, who could
do with the money I?ve spent
as she has had a terrible
time getting free from an
abusive marriage.
I?ve been looking at porn
for a year and gay porn is
what I like best. I?ve created a
fantasy persona that I use
when I talk to this guy.
I know he?s telling a pack of
lies, too. It?s all just fantasy
but still I?m convinced I?m in
love with him.
I feel so ashamed but I
can?t seem to stop. Is this a
mid-life crisis?
Is there a link between this
and the anger I feel with my
poor daughter?s ex?

be part of it. Perhaps you
felt powerless to help your
daughter and unable to be
who you wanted to be in

taking power back.

guilty for feeling attracted

MICHELLE?S RELATIONSHIP NIGHTMARE
My best pal

SHOCK . . .
Michelle
was
stunned
by the
ultimate
betrayal
By LYNSEY CLARKE
and RIKKI LOFTUS
IT
is
the
ultimate
betrayal ? your husband
and best friend getting
together.
For Michelle Bragger, 51, this
nightmare became a reality.
She had been happily married
to electrician John for 18 years
and never believed he would be
anything but loyal.
She says: ?We had a solid
marriage and not once in all
those years did he give me reason
to suspect he was cheating. I
assumed we?d be together for
ever.?
Michelle and John first met in
their thirties, when he popped into
her office to fix the computers.
Despite her noticing his wedding
ring, they soon hit it off. They
began secretly seeing each other
but Michelle made it clear he
needed to leave his wife if they
were to make a go of things.
The administrator, from Braintree,
Essex, says: ?Even though I was the
?other woman?, he convinced me
there were plenty of issues in his
marriage, so I didn?t feel like I was
the one tearing him away.
?I felt such a fool but
needed the truth?
?We waited to be intimate until
he?d left his wife and that made me
feel like we?d done the right thing.?
John and Michelle loved to
socialise and, in between raising
their daughters, now 18 and 14,
were the life and soul of the party.
They would spend as much time
as possible with family and friends
? especially with her best pal
Jennifer (not her real name).
In fact, Michelle says: ?Jennifer
spent nearly every day with us,
often tagging along on day trips or
nights out.?
But in November 2015, John
dropped his bombshell ? he did not
love Michelle any more and was
leaving her.
She says: ?It came out of the blue
and I just couldn?t understand why
he didn?t want to make it work.
?I managed to get him to stay for
Christmas but those few weeks
were the worst of my life.
?I spent the holiday begging John
not to leave us ? and was in floods
of tears over his harsh responses.
I?d been so upset that by the time
it came to breaking it to the kids,

they thought I was going to tell them I
had cancer.?
Devastated and confused, Michelle
confided everything in her best pal.
She says: ?Jennifer was the only
person I could trust. She was just as
shocked as I was, asking me if I
thought there was any way we
could work it out.
?But when John left, he wouldn?t
even tell me where he was going. I
couldn?t understand why he was
being so secretive, but it broke my
heart.
?Jennifer was a shoulder to cry
on but she seemed to think
there was no hope.
?After 18 years, I thought
there had to be a way to fix
things.?
Determined to find out
the truth about what was
going
on,
Michelle
decided on Valentine?s
Day 2016 that she
needed
to
find
John. She says:
?I drove up and
down and was
stunned to find
his car in a
driveway I knew all
too well.?
Finding John?s car outside Jennifer?s
house, Michelle decided it was time to
get some answers. She says: ?I
marched up her driveway and saw
three vases of roses on the windowsill.
Jennifer was supposedly single.
?John opened the door and admitted
everything. I was crushed.?
Michelle adds: ?I was mourning the
loss of two relationships. The two
people closest to me had completely
betrayed my trust.
?But I did have some empathy for
John?s first wife. How our relationship
started wasn?t ideal and I now
appreciate how she must have felt.
?But I didn?t know John?s first wife,
whereas for my best friend to be so
disloyal made it horrific.
?When our daughters found out,
they were crushed and I?m just trying
to keep life positive for them.
?I?ll never get over it but, once the
divorce is finalised, I?ll finally be able
to draw a line under the ordeal.?
When asked about the betrayal,
John, 48, only says: ?I?m not going to
comment on it, thanks.?
Jennifer, 45, adds: ?John had left [the
marital home], so while technically still
married he wasn?t in a relationship.
Divorce proceedings take time, I?m
sure you are aware. She was and
never has been my best friend. That
is her attempt to make a drama.
?John will tell you he was married
and in a relationship with his first
wife when Michelle seduced him.
Does Michelle feel bad? John had a
child with his first wife, too. Sounds
familiar, right??

HEALTHY RECIPIES LET
Chinese -- beef in
oyster sauce
(Serves 2)
YOU NEED:
1-2 tbsp sunflower oil
200g beef stir-fry strips
200g tenderstem
broccoli
1 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
2 tbsp oyster sauce
METHOD: Heat a
wok until smoking,
pour in the oil then add
the beef. Stir-fry for 2 minutes, then tip on to a plate.
Add the broccoli with a splash of
water
and cook until the veg is bright green.
Add the onion and stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the
garlic and cook for 1 minute more.
Pour in the oyster sauce and 125ml water. Bring to the
boil and cook until reduced to a sticky sauce.
Stir in the beef, along with any juices from the plate,
then serve straight away.
Rhiannon says: ?Beef is a great source of protein, as
well as being an excellent source of iron. Served with
vegetables and essential fats, this makes for a great,
well-balanced meal.?
Beef burger
(Serves 2)
YOU NEED:
� small onion, diced
250g lean beef mince
1 egg
1tsp vegetable oil
2 rashers bacon (optional)
2 large burger buns
lettuce, tomato, red onion, to
serve
METHOD: Tip the beef into a
bowl with the onion and egg and
mix together.
Divide the mixture into two. Lightly wet your hands.
Carefully roll the mixture into balls, each about the size
of a tennis ball.
Set in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze down
to flatten into patties about 3cm thick. Put on a plate,
cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge to firm up for
at least 30 minutes.
Lightly brush one side of each burger with oil. Place
the burgers, oil-side down, on a frying pan.
Cook for five minutes until the meat is lightly charred.
Don?t move them around or they may stick. Oil the other
side then turn over using tongs. Don?t press down on the
meat, as that will squeeze out the juices.
Cook for another five minutes for medium. If you like
your burgers pink in the middle, cook one minute less
each side. For well done, cook one minute more.
Meanwhile, fry the bacon if using. To serve, place patties on buns and top with the bacon and salad.
Rhiannon says: ?Beef burgers have historically been
deemed unhealthy, but making your own can guarantee
a well-balanced and nutritious burger.
?When you include ingredients like lean beef, egg,
olive oil and vegetables, you are ensuring you include all
essential food groups that make up a balanced dish.?
WE all indulge in a weekend takeaway or lazy
night-in delivery every
now and then.
But what if we could enjoy our
favourite
dishes
every
night
without worrying about all the
bad stuff they contain?
Nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert
reveals we CAN ? but the secret
is all in the cooking.
She says: ?Takeaways have this
reputation for being unhealthy
but people don?t realise these
popular dishes are some of the
most perfectly balanced meals
you can eat.
?Any meal with a good mix of
carbohydrates, proteins, vegetables
and a small amount of fat is
By JENNY FRANCIS
exactly what we should be feeding ourselves to stay healthy.
?The problem is your local
takeaway adds trans fats ? the
bad ones ? chemicals, salt
and

the

versions of the nation?s
favourite nibbles.

Chicken kebabs with pitta and yoghurt
(Serves 2)
YOU NEED:
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
2cm cube of fresh ginger, roughly
chopped
� orange, grated zest and juice
40g spring onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp clear honey
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into
cubes
10 button mushrooms
10 cherry tomatoes
1 large red pepper, cut into ten pieces
2 wholemeal pittas
100g natural yoghurt
METHOD: In a food processor, grind
the garlic, ginger, orange zest and
spring onions to a paste. Add the honey,
orange juice, soy sauce and oil, then
blend again.
Pour the mixture over the cubed
chicken and leave to marinate for at
least one hour, but preferably overnight.
Toss in the mushrooms for the last half
an hour so they take on some of the
flavour, too.
Thread the chicken, tomatoes, mushrooms and peppers on to 20 wooden
skewers, then cook on a griddle pan for
seven to eight minutes each side or
until the chicken is thoroughly cooked
and golden brown.
Turn the kebabs frequently and baste
with the marinade from time to time until
evenly cooked.
Toast the pittas, and arrange kebabs
on a platter with yoghurt and the pittas.
Rhiannon says: ?This recipe contains a whole variety of flavours and
nutrients that all work together in creating a well-balanced meal.
?Tomatoes, mushrooms, ginger and
garlic all contain a huge amount of
micronutrients that help to maintain
optimal health.
?Chicken and yoghurt are excellent
sources of protein.?

healthy treats
Fish and chips
(Serves 2)
YOU NEED:
2 large floury potatoes, such as King Edward
3 tbsp olive oil
50g plain or fine wholemeal flour
1 medium egg, beaten
30g breadcrumbs
� tsp hot or smoked paprika
2 x 150g white fish fillets
Salt and black pepper to taste
METHOD: Preheat the oven to
200C/180C fan/gas mark 6.
Peel and slice the potatoes into
chip shapes about 1-2cm thick.
Toss in the olive oil and season
with salt and pepper.
Tip out on to a baking tray and
cook for 45 minutes or until
browned all over and cooked through.
Turn them halfway through cooking so
they colour evenly.
Prepare three shallow bowls ? one with flour, another
with the beaten egg and a third with the breadcrumbs,
paprika and some salt and pepper.
Dust the fish in the flour, dip into the egg then
transfer to the breadcrumbs, making sure you
cover the entire surface with the crumbs. Place
on a lined tray, drizzle with olive oil and bake
for 15-18 minutes until browned on the outside and opaque on the inside.
Serve with lemon wedges, tomato ketchup
and pea and mint puree.
Rhiannon says: ?Fish is an excellent source of
lean protein while potatoes are high in B-vitamins,
fibre and magnesium. Together they make for a lovely
nutritious meal when you avoid the chippy.?
Ham and
mushroom pizza
Indian prawn curry
(Serves 4)
YOU NEED:
3 tbsp olive oil
2 onions or 4 shallots, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, very finely chopped
8 large tomatoes, chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
3 tbsp curry paste (check label for no added
sugar)
200ml canned coconut milk
360g raw or cooked prawns (if frozen, defrost
fully before using)
bunch of coriander, roughly chopped
400g rice to serve
METHOD: Heat the oil in a wok or large pan. Add
the onions or shallots and saute for three to five
minutes until soft and translucent. Add the garlic
along with the pepper and tomatoes and cook
for another five minutes.
Stir in the curry paste and cook for one minute,
stirring all the time, then add the coconut milk.
Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a
simmer.
If you are using raw prawns, add them now
and simmer for ten minutes until they are pink
and cooked through. Keep stirring the curry to
stop it sticking and keep the prawns submerged
in the liquid.
If you are using cooked prawns, simmer the
vegetables for just five minutes, then add the
cooked prawns and simmer for one minute until
heated through.
Taste and add a little more curry paste or salt if
you think it needs it. Add half the coriander and
then serve with your choice of basmati or brown
rice. Scatter over the remaining coriander.
Rhiannon says: ?Curries seem to have landed
themselves an unhealthy reputation.
?Granted, when you get a big greasy takeaway
version, they may not be nutritious, but homemade ones are a great option for a well-balanced
dinner. This recipe includes a balance of carbs,
protein, veg and essential fats.?
(Serves 2)
YOU NEED:
100g white flour
100g wholewheat flour
1 tsp yeast
125ml warm water
For the topping:
200g can of chopped tomato, juice drained
60g mushrooms, halved
1 slice of ham, torn
25g mozzarella, torn
8 green olives
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
METHOD: Mix the flours and yeast with a pinch of salt in
a food processor fitted with a dough blade. Pour in the
water and mix to a soft dough, then work for 1 min.
Remove the dough and roll out on a lightly floured
surface to around 30cm across. Lift on to an oiled
baking sheet.
Spread tinned tomatoes over the dough to within 2cm
of the edges. Arrange the mushrooms and ham over the
top, then scatter with the mozzarella.
Mix the olives and garlic, then scatter over the top.
Drizzle evenly with the oil and leave to rise for 20
minutes.
Heat the oven to 240C/220C fan/gas mark 9, or
whatever the highest setting is.
Bake the pizza for 10-12 minutes until crisp and golden
around the edges.
Rhiannon says: ?Pizza, if done properly, is actually
perfectly balanced.
?You have your source of carbohydrate in the base,
cheese as a source of protein and your extra veggie
toppings for additional micronutrients.
?Homemade pizzas are a perfect way to pack in more
vegetables. Remember, the more variety you have in
your diet, the happier your gut.?

HOW TO . . .
BELIEVE IN
YOURSELF
DOUBT . . .
women
underrate
their
abilities
IF you are a woman who is not too sure
of your talents, you could be a victim of
the gender confidence gap.
US researchers have found that while
men tend to overestimate their abilities,
women routinely believe they are less
capable than they actually are.
Known as the confidence gap, this
self-doubt can even lead women to seek
fewer promotions or opportunities and
to receive less pay.
But you can stop a lack of self-belief
holding you back and ditch the doubt
with our expert advice.
Here, confidence coach Jo Painter, of
website confidencecoachingfor
women.co.uk, tells how you can boost
your self-esteem in any situation ? and
close the confidence gap for good.
CHALLENGE YOURSELF
Set yourself a challenge to take a small,
regular step out of your comfort zone. The
quickest way to increase confidence is to
do something that makes you feel
uncomfortable.
It could be speaking out in a meeting at
work or attending a group event alone.
The most important thing is to celebrate
your bravery afterwards.
TRUST YOURSELF
Lacking self-confidence can cause us to
mistrust our decisions and opinions.
Remember, you know yourself best.
Practise being aware of your gut instinct
and then following its advice. Reaping
rewards from doing so will result in a big
confidence boost.
SILENCE YOUR INNER CRITIC
Be aware when that nagging critical voice
pops up in your mind, creating doubt. You
can?t control these thoughts, but you don?t
have to listen to them either. Instead of
overthinking it, simply distract yourself
until it is replaced by another thought.
USE BODY LANGUAGE
When we lack confidence, our body
language tends to shrink. In contrast,
actions such as standing up tall and proud
and looking people in the eye will tell
others you are feeling assured.
This sends a positive message to your
brain ? and boosts confidence levels even
more.
MAKE A LIST
Write down ten things you like about
yourself and ten things you have achieved.
These could be from work, your social life
or relationships.
Keep the list somewhere you will
regularly see it, so you are focusing on
positive things. It is common to spend
more time analysing our flaws.
LOOK IN THE MIRROR
Study your reflection every day and find
something in it that makes you feel good
about yourself.
This could be your eyes, your skin or
your fabulous haircut. Don?t look for the
things you dislike or want to change. True
confidence comes from within.
SPEAK UP
Be brave and voice your wants and needs
to others. You are entitled to have them
acknowledged, just as much as anyone
else. By speaking up for yourself others
will respect you, and in return you will give
yourself a huge self-esteem and
confidence boost.

THE judge gave Ant McPartlin a

offence and he pleaded guilty.
The
other
parties
of
the
accident got their say and my
heart goes out to them. People
might moan that he is very rich
and the fine means nothing.
However, I think that he feels
genuine remorse and shame.
ANT McPartlin is ashamed and
mortified over his drink-driving,
and rightly so.
He earns around �6,000 per
week, so his fine will be paid off
already, and he will no doubt be
allowed back on TV.
He could so easily have been
facing charges of causing death
by dangerous driving.
Depression is an illness, but
drink-driving is not.

You have extra physical energy that gets you through jobs
faster. But it?s your emotional control, plus a logical way of
looking at life, that convert problems into great challenges. As
for love, you have a more relaxed attitude and instead of pushing for promises, enjoying the moment gets rewarding results.
Strict Saturn slams into reverse and two projects open up. One
would fulfil your secret, daring ambition. The other would help a
friend deal with a sensitive situation. And you have to prioritise.
To get the best result, help the friend first. Luck, love and work
are all linked to a high building that has a ?K? name.
The moon moves into your sign at midday and straight away
you feel people?s moods mellow and constructive talking
replaces disagreements. As Saturn travels in a new direction,
someone you never thought of as partnership material now is ?
it?s a romance that surprises friends, but is very good for you.
The day?s dilemma is delivered by Saturn as it does an aboutturn in your business chart. Instead of doing deals by being
persistent, you?re tempted by a faster way of working things
out. It may not seem fair but it does get the right result.
Someone who always avoids love talk now gets romantic.
Friendship is the focus and there will be work and prize reasons
for friends to celebrate together ? but what counts for more is
discovering that forgiving isn?t always enough, because it?s
understanding why a problem happened that heals friendship.
Venus attract you to a Libra who wears designer suits.
As Saturn ? which usually pushes you to take life seriously ?
slows down you are able to schedule more time for love. If you
are starting the day single, a friendly lunchtime smile can lead
to a hot date. The Venus effect means couples see each other
as if for the first time and flirty fun rekindles love.
The moon of faraway faces and places sets up links of luck with
people working abroad and a chance to learn new skills is
important. Your chart of key relationships is looking good
because instead of just chatting, you talk about what matters to
you both. Luck is on a ticket waiting to be checked.
There is a receptive atmosphere when you talk about finances ?
especially to the family. Quietly go through the facts and you
will get people to pay what they can. At work your ideas are
forward-looking and your words are effective. New love has the
same name as a former partner, but a more generous heart.
Instead of being held back by people who dislike making
choices, you are ready for the responsibility of being the
decision taker. And you do it in style. When it comes to love, be
ready for surprises as someone whose feelings are a
mystery asks a deeply passionate and sincere question.
Your mood is independent, your ideas are innovative and these
prove appealing when you get down to the details. Propertywise, it?s good to stick to a budget but listen to your emotions
when you view a house and feel that you could be happy there.
Partners share exciting, if unexpected, news.
Saturn?s light shines on the hidden part of your chart and those
secret ambitions are ready to be tested. Yes, you are aiming
high, but this time you are primed for success. On the subject of
romance, Venus sets up a meeting with a former neighbour who
now has found fame, and the attraction is strong.
Saturn, the work-master of the planets, is rewinding and
second tries go well, at work and at home. The hottest clues to
new love are a job in finance and a gift for dancing, while established couples discover, perhaps to their surprise, how good
the settling down phase of a genuine relationship can be.

CLOSURES
LLOYDS BANKING GROUP
is shutting 49 high street
branches this summer, with
the loss of 305 jobs.
The jobs will be
cut across its branch
network as well as some
central functions.
Lloyds blamed the
closures on a growth in
digital banking.
It said it hopes to
redeploy affected staff
where possible, with
compulsory redundancies
a ?last resort?.
The group is cutting
more than 1,200 roles in
total, but will be creating
925 elsewhere.
Branches will close
across its Lloyds and
Halifax banking brands
between July and October.
Lloyds pledged to expand
its mobile branch network
by another seven to 36 to
help offset the closures.
It still has 1,750
branches ? the largest
network in the UK.
Lloyds said 70 per cent
of customers use more
than one of its channels to
bank, including branches.
Last year the bank said
it would shut 100 branches
with hundreds of jobs
affected.
And in February, it
announced another 465
roles were being cut.

trading
division has bounced back
to
form
in
the
bank?s
latest results following recent
market volatility.
Net income at the Wall
Street titan jumped 27 per
cent to $2.74billion in the first
quarter, beating analyst estimates. Trading revenue alone
rocketed 30 per cent from a
year earlier when it had
recorded a two per cent fall.
Global
markets
were
rocked by volatility in February following prolonged calm
in 2017.
That affected stocks, bonds,
currencies and commodities ?
to Goldman?s benefit. It was
triggered by fears over US
interest rate rises.
Goldman?s trading struggles
in 2017 raised questions about
the bank?s strategy.
But chief executive Lloyd
Blankfein, left, has maintained
that many of the issues in the
company?s
biggest
business
are
cyclical
and
would
improve with more active
markets.
Meanwhile,
the
succession race to replace
long-standing CEO Blankfein
became clearer last month.
David Solomon was named
sole president of the bank and
Harvey Schwartz ? president
and co-chief operating officer
? said he was stepping down.

MARKS & SPENCER is to
close its distribution centre
near Warrington, putting
450 jobs at risk.
The decision is set to
take total job losses at
M&S this year to more
than 1,300.
The retailer is seeking to
save costs as part of a
five-year turnaround plan
spearheaded by chief executive
Steve
Rowe
and
chairman Archie Norman.
The Hardwick site in
Cheshire is operated by
XPO LOGISTICS and DHL.
It has become surplus to
requirements in part due
to M&S?s decision to automate operations at its factory in Bradford, West
Yorks, which can handle
more capacity ? speeding
up the supply chain.
M&S
director
Gordon
Mowat said: ?We will do
all we can to support our
partners through the consultation process.?
JD?S HIGH

RETAILER JD SPORTS
FASHION has seen annual
profits jump ? defying the
gloom afflicting much of
the high street.
The chain reported a
better-than-expected 24
per cent leap in pre-tax
profits to �4.5million for
the year to February 3.
Comparable sales rose by
three per cent across all
its stores.
JD Sports is poised to
enter the US market after
agreeing to buy up American sportswear firm FINISH
LINE for �8million.
Executive chairman Peter
Cowgill said there was a
core range that sold well
globally which was adapted
to suit local tastes.
WINE IDEA
A CORKER
MAJESTIC WINE is to double its rate of investment
in luring new customers in
a move that will affect
profits short-term.
It spends �million a

Yesterday it announced
plans to invest an
additional �illion to
�million in winning over
wine lovers.
The extra investment
would reduce its adjusted
operating profits for 2019
by between �illion and
�illion. Dividends both
this year and next are
unaffected.
Its shares rose 9.6 per
cent on the plan to close
at 435p.

GOOGLE?S
market
dominance is facing
a
fresh
challenge
after
a
start-up
launched legal action
against it.
The US tech giant is
already at the centre of
several investigations by
European regulators.
Now Australian technology firm UNLOCKD ? which
counts Tesco Mobile as a
customer
?
is
taking
Google to court in the UK.
It is a platform backed
by Lachlan Murdoch, son of
The Sun?s owner Rupert
Murdoch,
that
rewards
smartphone users for viewing
adverts
when
they
unlock their phone.
Google has sought to cut
off the supply of its advertising content to Unlockd.
It
also
threatened
to
remove
the
Australian
firm?s apps from the Google
Play Store.
Unlockd co-founder Matt
Berriman told The Sun:
?Our legal advisers have
confidence that the threats
made by Google represent
an abuse of its dominant
position and a breach of
competition rules.
?These
warnings
from
Google emerged earlier this
year at a time of speculation around our imminent

chain

Owner
ASSOCIATED
BRITISH FOODS called it
?remarkable in the cir-
cumstances?. It credited
?an increase in selling
space and the breadth of
our consumer offering?.
Across the wider Primark group, like-for-like
sales fell 1.5 per cent as
bad weather hit Europe
more severely.
Primark has 352 worldwide outlets with 184, just
over half, in the UK.
their conduct is preventing
the company from raising
capital to scale and be in a
position to compete with
Google going forward.?
Winning the case would
mean continued access to
Google and further expansion in the UK and beyond.
Mr Berriman added: ?We
have ambitious plans for the
UK with a strong pipeline
of partners either at commercial terms or close to.
?Having been live in the
UK market since November
2016 and with a team in
place on the ground we are
keen for our business here
to continue to grow.?
Last year the European
Commission, the EU?s antitrust
regulator,
fined
Google a record �illion
for manipulating shopping
services in its favour.
The EC is still investigating
the
practices
of
Google?s advertising division
and those relating to the
Android operating system.
Separately, Google is facing a class action in the UK
over allegations it unlawfully
harvested personal data. The
first hearing in the case,
over where it should take
place, is next month.
A group led by the former executive director of
consumer
body
Which?,
Richard Lloyd, and advised
by City law firm Mishcon
de Reya is seeking compensation for those it says were
affected.

BIG CUTS
PUBLISHER
JOHNSTON
PRESS is preparing for
further cost-cutting after
revenues fell nearly ten per
cent in 2017.
The group, owner of the
i, The Scotsman and Yorkshire Post newspapers, said
income fell from �2.7million to �1.6million.
Total advertising revenue
fell 18 per cent, down from
2016?s
�2million
to
�0million in 2017.
Print advertising took the
biggest hit, falling 20 per
cent to �million, while
digital ad revenues rose
8.1 per cent to �.1million.
The company said: ?The
trading
environment
remains challenging.?
WPP ?NEGATIVE?
AD giant WPP suffered
another blow as its outlook
was
downgraded
from stable to negative
after the shock departure
of boss Sir Martin Sorrell.
Credit ratings agency
MOODY?S said Sir Martin?s exit sowed ?uncertainty over the strategy
and ultimately the structure of the group going
forward?.
WPP?s
chief
executive stepped down
over the weekend after 32
years amid allegations of
personal misconduct.
WPP
is
reportedly
poised to hire New Yorkbased executive search
firm RUSSELL REYNOLDS

2017: William Henry 7-11-4 D N Russell 8-15 Fav (N Henderson), 5 ran.
BO AN ARROW . . . Nebo
(yellow cap) can go well for
in-form Charlie Hills
SI?S THE STAR
NAWASSI should push her
Classic claims in the Lanwades
Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes (3.35).
John Gosden has won Newmarket?s
1,000 Guineas trial for the last two years
and he can complete the hat-trick.
NEW: Losing his conkers can
spark BARRINGTON back into life
on his first run for Mick Appleby.
The gelding op often does the trick
with sprinters and he is nicely treated.
Ekhtiyaar won on both Newmarket
tracks last summer but Roger Varian?s
runners have looked in need of the run.
NEW: Charlie Hills is in great
form and NEBO looks a likely
improver. He had some good placed
form in Group races and finished the
year beating Tangled in the Horris Hill.
Soft ground is ideal and he stays.
Hey Jonesy had a progressive twoyear-old campaign. His third behind
Tangled in a valuable York Sales race
makes him closely matched with Nebo.
CHE: KALONDRA beat Coo Star
Sivola over course and distance
1.50

2.40
Templegate?s TV tips
By STEVE JONES
in December and drying ground is in his
favour. Stablemate Shantou Village
would prefer it even faster so he is one
to watch for when the weather improves.
NEW: Rob the bookies of some
cash. ROBIN OF NAVAN does
most of his racing in France. He was a
Group 1 winner there a few years ago
and landed a Group 3 last summer. He
warmed up for this with a third behind
subsequent Kempton Listed winner
Junaina at Chantilly last month.
Deauville is the class horse in the race. If
he?s ready he will surely go close.
NEW: John Gosden is in it to
Gwyn it. His NAWASSI was well
backed for her debut but bombed out in
spectacular fashion. Her impressive win
over course and distance was much more
like it. Altyn Orda was a 25-1 Group 3
stunner but Varian?s runners seem to be
in need of their first run of the season.

CUE CARD, one of the
most popular horses of
recent years, has been
retired.
The 12-year-old was
expected to have one final
hurrah at Sandown a week
on Saturday but trainer
Colin Tizzard decided to
draw stumps after some
below-par gallops.
His final run was when
pulled up in the Ryanair
Chase at last month?s
Cheltenham Festival.
That was a rare poor run
for a horse who had mixed it
with the very best for an
astonishing eight years.
Owner Jean Bishop said: ?If
it wasn?t for Sprinter Sacre
he might have had another
three or four Grade 1s.
?He took them all on. For a
few seasons he was the highest-rated chaser in Britain.
?As recently as February
he ran right up to his best
when second at Ascot to
Waiting Patiently.?
Cue Card?s 40-1 win in the
2010 Champion Bumper was
a sign of things to come.
He went on to win the
Betfair Chase three times,
beating
the
likes
of
Silviniaco Conti, Long Run,
Bobs Worth and Coneygree
as well as the Ryanair Chase
in 2013 and the Betfred Bowl
at Aintree.
His finest hour probably
came when flying home to

catch Vautour on the line to
land the 2015 King George.
The one race that got
away, though, was the
Cheltenham Gold Cup.
In 2016, when chasing a �million Triple Crown bonus,
he was cruising when crashing out three from home.
He was to fall at the same
fence the following year.
But when great chasers are
discussed in bar rooms
across the land Cue Card?s
name is sure to crop up.
He?s just the sort of horse
loved by jumps fans for
returning year on year without losing their appetite.
Trainer?s son and assistant
Joe Tizzard, who rode him to
both Cheltenham Festival
wins said: ?It takes a lot for
a horse to be at the top as
long as he has.
?His first Betfair win at
Haydock is the one that
stands out. He won by
20 lengths and it
brought Dad to tears
? I don?t think I?ve
ever seen that.?

Dog?s life
for cheats
By MARTIN LIPTON
POLICE sniffer dogs are
set to be unleashed in the
fight against drug cheats.
Cycling, athletics and
weightlifting are three
sports where the canine
detectives could be used
as part of a new approach
by UK Anti-Doping.
As part of a four-year
plan, backed by an extra
�1million in public funding, Ukad has promised to
undertake 50 per cent
more drug tests by 2022.
Ukad chief Trevor Pearce
said: ?If athletes know the
dogs will be at an event, it
may have an effect.?
DANIEL RICCIARDO
P
says winning the
Chinese Grand Prix
has not convinced him
to stay with Red Bull.
The Aussie?s contract

he said: ?I want to be

because the weekend
proved I can pull it off.?
RUNDERDOG
But Brit record is
still in Mo?s sights
By VIKKI ORVICE
MO FARAH is happy to
be an underdog for the
first time in almost a
decade.
The double Olympic champ
makes his first serious marathon outing on the streets of
London on Sunday, having
quit the track last summer.
His
London
Marathon
debut in 2014 saw him miss
out on the British record of
2hr 7min 13sec ? set by Steve
Jones in 1985 ? and finish
eighth.
But having dumped controversial coach Alberto Salazar
and teamed up with Gary
Lough,
who
guided
wife
Paula Radcliffe to a marathon world record in London
in 2003, Farah admits he is
in a better place than he has
been for a long time.
The 35-year-old, who has
four Olympic titles and six
world golds over 10,000m and
5,000m, said: ?It?s a great
feeling not to be the favourite, not having as much pressure as I did on the track.
?I was expected to win on
the track and now I?m not
BRIDGING THE GAP
. . . star does Mobot
near Tower Bridge
even ranked in the world?s top
ten in the marathon. There
are guys who have run 2:02,
2:03. This is the biggest
marathon race and there is
only one way to run ? and
that?s to mix it with them.
?If they go out at worldrecord pace, I?ll have to go
with them.?
Farah, who clocked 2:08.21
in 2014, also has the European record of 2:05.48 ? set
last December by Norwegian
Sondre Moen ? in his sights.
That would see him hold
every European record from
1500m up. He said: ?The
initial aim is that British
record. Since 2014 I?ve learned
a lot, I?m more relaxed now.
?You have to enjoy what
you do, otherwise what?s the
point? It?s all or nothing for
me and I?m enjoying everything more than ever.?
At times last year, Farah,
who plans an autumn marathon this year and has Tokyo
2020 in his sights, seemed to
cut a despondent figure on
the track despite his success.
But he has enjoyed a new
lease of life since moving up
to the marathon, adding: ?I
was watching the Common-
wealth Games and part of me
thought, ?Maybe the Commonwealth 5,000m and 10,000m??.
?But you have to find a
new challenge, something that
gets you out of bed.
?I?ve won lots of medals but
the marathon is something I
always wanted to do.
?A lot of athletes have gone
from
the
track
to
the
marathon and I believe I can
be a great marathon runner.
?If everything goes right,
I?m capable in the future of
running 2:03, 2:04. But now
it?s one step at a time.?

EDMUND . . . early exit
Loss real
Ed ache
ONE of the best weeks of
Kyle Edmund?s career has
been followed with a
second loss in three days.
The British No 1 reached
a career-high world ranking of 23 at the weekend
after making his first ATP
Tour final in Marrakesh.
But he followed up his
disappointing defeat to
lowly-ranked Pablo Andujar by losing to Italy?s
Andreas Seppi in the
opening round of the
Monte Carlo Masters.
Edmund trailed 5-1 after
a lacklustre start but
rallied to force a decider.
But Seppi, one of his
victims during his run to
the Australian Open semifinals, finished the stronger to win 6-3 5-7 6-2.

. . . Khan trains
yesterday and
(inset) Alvarez
Let?s Can all
the cheats,
urges Khan
AMIR KHAN claims letting off drug cheat Saul
?Canelo? Alvarez will give fighters a green light to
dope their way to glory.
Bolton star Khan makes his long-awaited return to
the ring in Liverpool on Saturday in a tune-up with
Canada?s Phil Lo Greco, two years after Mexican
Alvarez knocked him out cold in Las Vegas.
Canelo ? infamous for ballooning in size after the
final weigh-in of bouts ? failed two tests last month
for fat-stripper Clenbuterol ahead of his cancelled
rematch with Gennady
By WALLY DOWNES Jr
Golovkin on May 5.
The 27-year-old blamed
those red flags on con- bodies say but, in my

point on the night Mauricio
Pochettino virtually conceded
it is about time he won a
trophy.
The German, as you would
expect, held his nerve to beat
Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris
in the 50th minute.
Spurs had only taken the lead less
than three minutes earlier when
Harry Kane scored an effort which
will NOT need to be referred to the

Pochettino clearly now realises he
does ? although he was lucky his
selection did not backfire completely
as Brighton pushed them all the way.
As it turned out, the draw means
fourth-placed Tottenham are eight
points clear of Chelsea with four
games to play.
The Blues have a game in hand
but it would take something very

But time is running out for the

GARRE . . . City starlet
Champs
cleared
over Ben
By MARTIN LIPTON
MANCHESTER CITY have
been cleared of any
misconduct
over
the
controversial signing of
teenager Benjamin Garre.
The
newly
crowned
Premier League champs
were accused by his
former club, Argentina?s
Velez Sarsfield, of illegally
landing the winger.
They complained to Fifa
and argued that Garre had
been ?trafficked?.
World football chiefs
found in City?s favour so
Velez appealed to the
Court of Arbitration for
Sport in Switzerland.
And
yesterday
CAS
refused to uphold the
case and also backed City.
Velez had claimed the
Etihad side made contact
with Argentine Garre when
he was 15 and then signed
him just days after his
16th birthday in July 2016.
Velez president Raul
Gamez accused City of an
?immoral?
act
that
opened Garre to a potential ?situation of vulnerability or abuse in a foreign
country, without family or
somebody to protect? him.
The South Americans
claimed City had offered
them a compensation payment of �,000 if the
lad made his first-team
debut, plus further payments of around �illion.
Fifa rules allow players
under 18 to move only
between clubs in Europe.
But City pointed out
Garre, who is now 17, has
an Italian passport and
could join them under EU
law because he was over
16 and had not signed a
professional contract.
Aguero?s
op shock
By MARTIN BLACKBURN
SERGIO AGUERO revealed
he has had keyhole surgery
on his latest knee injury
in a bid to be fit for the
World Cup.
The Argentina striker,
29, has not started a
game for Manchester City
since March 4.
He is not expected to play
for the Premier League
champs again this season
? leaving him stuck on
199 career goals for City
? after yesterday?s op on
his right knee.
He tweeted: ?Recovering
from an arthroscopy on my
knee. Fully motivated to
get back soon to the field.?
Aguero, with 30 goals
this season, damaged his
left knee in training in
mid-March and was sidelined for four weeks.
His comeback was as a
sub in the Manchester
derby ten days ago ? but
he was clattered on his
right knee by United?s

OK, but the goalscoring talisman of
City?s glory years, Sergio Aguero, must
have regularly made it into the PFA
Team of the Year?
Nope, Aguero has NEVER been
included in that XI despite seven
prolific seasons at City.
And the last time they won the title
in 2014, the PFA team included just
two of their players, fewer than
Liverpool or Chelsea ? and the same
number as Southampton.
But surely City?s managers have been
decorated by their union, the LMA?
Again, no. In the 25-year history of
the Manager of the Year award, no
City boss has won the thing.
When Mancini claimed the title, Alan
Pardew won it. When Pellegrini was
champion,
Brendan
Rodgers
was
honoured by the LMA instead.
And this year there is every chance
Burnley?s Sean Dyche could beat
Guardiola, given the LMA?s tendency to
go British whenever possible.
Of course, that award must take into

disposal ? and City?s bosses have been
drowning in cash.
But there is no reason why a club?s
wealth should impact on them winning
individual honours.

It?s all

wrong
for City
Well, history suggests he would
literally need to break his NECK.
Bert Trautmann, the heroic German
goalkeeper who played on with that
potentially lethal injury during the 1956
FA Cup final, was the last City player
to win the award outright.
City?s Tony Book shared it with Dave
Mackay in 1969 ? but since then, 49
years ago, nothing.
Not when City won the league under
Roberto Mancini in 2012, nor under
Manuel Pellegrini in 2014.
And this time, with Pep Guardiola?s
men likely to rattle up a record points
haul, Liverpool?s Mo Salah is still hot
favourite to win the gong.
We?re talking about the original
Football Writers? Association award
here, so you?ll doubtless be imagining
this is all the cunning work of the
agenda-driven, London-based media.
And, yes, we do all conspire together
on a weekly basis, with our fancy
London ways, to work out how we?re
going to derail whichever football club
you happen to support . . .
But what about the PFA Player of
the Year, the one they all want to win
the most because it?s voted for by
their peers?
Surely the actual footballers aren?t
biased against City? Well, since that

the Year or Player of the Year winners

So the next time you hear a City fan
grumbling that their club is harddone-by, do not simply write them off
as bitter grudge-bearers with chips on
their shoulders.
Just because you?re paranoid, doesn?t
mean they?re not after you.
While Salah?s 30 Premier League
goals ? especially as a winger and a
Liverpool rookie ? make him an
excellent candidate, the City duo of
Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are
still more likely to make you purr.

De
Bruyne?s

And while Dyche has worked a
minor miracle by leading Burnley into
a
likely
Europa
League
place,
Guardiola has shown more imagination
and brought more joy, however much
oil money has been sprayed about on
his behalf.
So we really ought to vote for City?s
title-winners this time ? without the
need for anybody breaking their neck.
VAR SIGHTED
CONGRATULATIONS to Premier League clubs
for voting against the introduction of the Video
Assistant Referee (VAR) next season.
For once they?re in tune with paying punters,
few of whom support the system ? especially in
its present form.
In the Bundesliga at the weekend, Mainz and
Freiburg players were called back out on to the
pitch when the VAR awarded a penalty AFTER
the half-time whistle.
Yet Fifa have saddled the World Cup with
VAR despite it tanking in every trial. They will
get exactly what they deserve ? chaos and farce.
THE campaign to have
Jonjo Shelvey included
in Gareth Southgate?s
World Cup squad has
great merit.
England are likely to
face packed defences
in their opening two
fixtures
against
Tunisia and Panama,
and the Newcastle
playmaker has the
most incisive range
of passing.
Despite what you
might
have
heard,
Shelvey is no out-andout wrong ?un either.
He is a dedicated
footballer, the son of a
committed youth coach,
who brought him up to
play the right way.
England don?t have
the
central-midfield
creativity to ignore him.
THE
Leicester
players appear
to be conniving
against a manager
again, hoping Claude
Puel goes the same
way as title-winning
miracle man Claudio
Ranieri.
Last season, Southampton?s
players
successfully unseated
Puel
despite
an
eighth-place
finish
and an impressive
cup final appearance.
That?s turned out
well for them.

dreadful 1-0 home defeat to rockbottom West Brom.
That blew the doors wide open for

The trio all started out at Old

two of them reached a crossroads.

they show off secret handshakes,
dabs and dance moves.
Rashford ? five years younger
and more reserved ? cannot
resist the infectious humour
Lingard provides, which often
helps lift the stresses of playing
for the world?s biggest club.
While Pogba is in a constant
spotlight due to his �million
price tag, Rashford?s travails are
something of a sideshow.
His future at Old Trafford was
thrown into doubt after the
arrival of Alexis Sanchez in
January and Romelu Lukaku last

He may be benched tonight against

United are aiming to bounce back
from the dismal loss to Albion ?
with an FA Cup semi-final against
Tottenham looming on Saturday.
Boss Jose Mourinho decided his
team will not return to Manchester
tonight and instead will prepare for
the Wembley tie by training at
Fulham for two days.
Keeper David De Gea said: ?What
we have got to make sure of now is
that we finish second this season.
?That?s what we?ve got to hope for
league-wise. We?ve got to make sure
we put in a good performance, get
the win and hold on to second.?
United have announced a fivegame pre-season in the USA,
including three matches in the

and AC Milan.
Mourinho?s men will also face

one their worst performances of the
season as they crashed out. Since
then, Rashford has played just 53
minutes as a sub in four games.
Yet whenever Rashford?s name
comes up, Mourinho is quick to
point out he is always in his squads,
reminds everyone of his age and
that he is learning every day. And
his 12 goals this term is already
better than his 11 last season and
eight in his sensational debut year.
It was Rashford?s sparkling start
to his first-team career that raised
the expectation levels.
He arrived as a late replacement
for Martial in a Europa League tie
with Midtjylland ? and scored twice
in a 5-1 victory.
Three days later, he scored two
and set up another on his Premier
League debut to beat Arsenal 3-2.
United and England fans had seen
the future. But big-name arrivals
such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic,
Lukaku
and
now
Sanchez
blocked his path.
Gareth Southgate has told
United boss Mourinho he still
expects Rashford to be in Russia
with the Three Lions.
Pogba will be there, too,
central to French hopes.
But then, he was supposed to
be central to United?s hopes.
He was hauled off again on
Sunday and has been subbed or
left out of the starting line-up
in eight of the last 13 games.
He could be sidelined again
tonight ? and even at Wembley
on Saturday ? with Scott
McTominay ready to step back in.
While Pogba and Mourinho
are not happy with each other,
the midfielder chose United
ahead of Real Madrid because
he wanted to be back at the
club where he started.
He enjoys being in Manchester and is determined to
stay and make a success of it.
Mourinho wants to get the
best out of the player.
Perhaps it is the frustration boiling up in both of them over his
form that makes them clash.
United?s hierarchy certainly do not
want to lose a player they worked
so hard to buy from Juventus after
just two seasons ? especially not to
the club they fought off to get him.
Spanish giants Real remain keen
to sign him two years on.
As for the third home-grown star,
Lingard has similar stats to Rashford, with 42 appearances, 25 starts
and 13 goals this season.
But his all-round play with
those quick feet and eye for
the spectacular goal make him
stand out and could see him
being voted United?s player of
the year.
For Mourinho, that is as big
a source of celebration as
Pogba?s form is a frustration.

ON THE way to meeting
Leonid Slutsky, there was no
escaping the news stands
proclaiming the escalating
tensions between the West
and Russia over Syria.
Add the Salisbury poisoning of
Sergei and Yulia Skripal to the
general unease about the regime
of Vladimir Putin (right), and it is
easy to see why English fans are
hardly enthusiastic about going to
this summer?s World Cup.
But Slutsky, a former boss of
the Russian national team and
Hull, had an upbeat message.
Gesturing like he was handing
out banknotes, he said: ?I make
you a guarantee, I?m ready to pay
insurance on each potential problem. It will be the best World Cup.
?This is football, not politics.
Russian people are the most
friendly people in the world.
?For English fans, there will be
special attention.
?We had some problems in the
last Euros and now we must
bring back opinion about it.
?For us, this is a matter of
national pride ? to show our
friendliness and openness.?
Slutsky was in the Russia
dugout when some of his countrymen clashed with England fans
before, during and after the Euro
2016 match in Marseilles.
Recent
videos
from
the
LEONID
motherland suggest Russian thugs
are busy preparing the wrong
kind of ?special attention? for
English supporters in particular.
And former CSKA Moscow
boss Slutsky said: ?Each country
has small problems.
?When Spartak play against
CSKA, there is serious fighting.
?But when we are speaking
about the national team, this is
another situation.
?Away from home, I agree
there are sometimes problems.
Russian fans try to show their
level, their fighting, their power.
?But at home, it?s a completely
different situation.
?Normal people support the
national team, 99.9 per cent. Each
country has 0.1 per cent of people
who don?t like football and only
use football for violence.?
During
Slutsky?s
successful
reign at CSKA, the club was
punished by Uefa for racist
chants directed at Manchester
City?s Yaya Toure during a
Champions League match in
Moscow in October 2013.
So what about players and
fans worried about suffering
intimidation or violence because
of the colour of their skin or
their sexuality?
Slutsky
admits
that
the
attitudes
of
some
Russians
remain problematic but believes
the country will show its ?best
face? during the World Cup.
He said: ?In England, you
stopped war and everything else
hundreds of years ago. You have
had democratic government for
eight centuries, we for 25 years.
?For
some
Russian
people,
thinking in a democratic way is
alien. Some make an incorrect
joke or tell a story they think is
funny . . . but it?s not racism.

We will show you our best face.
?Like, I don?t know, Leonardo
DiCaprio, very beautiful, friendly,
open, smile!
?It doesn?t depend on black,
white, homosexual, female ? it
doesn?t matter.?
Slutsky is understandably keen
to be positive about his country
and the World Cup.
And he very much toes the
party line when it comes to
doping in Russian sport, claiming
the World Anti-Doping Agency is
yet to prove that it was a statesponsored conspiracy.
Politics and sport, he maintains, must be kept, separate. Yet
he also concedes that they have
long been intertwined in Russia.
Born in 1971, Slutsky is old
enough to recall the Americanled boycott of the 1980 Moscow
Olympics and the Soviet Bloc?s
tit-for-tat response in missing the
1984 Games in Los Angeles.
He said: ?In Russian people?s

?The competition between the

?And there was propaganda, of
course. That you were dangerous
for us, there might be war, that you
needed everyone together against
Europe and the United States.
?Now everything is more open.
It?s a different time, a different
opportunity.
?The 1980s was the time of the
Cold
War.
But
why
must
sportsmen be involved in political
situations? Like the situation
now. You have a government, we
have also.
?You are politicians, this is
your job, please decide your
problem.?
It is not as easy as that, of
course. But if all Russians were
like Slutsky, then fans of all
nationalities would be guaranteed
a great time this summer.
He is fine company, his English
good enough to put his point
across and to let his fun and
quirky personality shine.
So, Leonid, this is your final
pitch. How would you convince
English fans scared about coming
to Russia 2018 to change their
minds and make the trip?
Puffing out his lips in his
trademark way, Slutsky said:
?First reason, it?s a very cheap
price by aeroplane.
?Second, it will be the biggest
performance of all time.
?This is our national pride. You
had the World Cup in 1966 and
you
would
use
the
same
stadiums. For us, this is our
first experience. It?s like the
first time you get married.
?Second
time,
not
so
interesting. First time, really
good, you have good expectations, serious preparations.
?It?s a big country, a different
experience
geographically.
Everything is new.
?You have a good reason to
see Russia. When will you next
go to Russia?
?And there is not one favourite for this World Cup.
?I think eight teams have the
same chances ? Brazil, Argentina, England, France, Spain,
Germany, Belgium and Portugal.
?Another reason to come ? it
might be the first time since 1966
you can watch England in the
final! There is a Russian saying,
?Soedinat priyatno s poleznym?.
?It means. ?It?s necessary and a
pleasure at the same time.??

SLUTSKY ON
ABRAMOVICH
DESPITE having been Russia
manager, Leonid Slutsky has
NEVER met President Putin.
But he counts Chelsea owner ?
and Vladimir Putin loyalist ?
Roman Abramovich (above) among
his pals, and they speak regularly.
Slutsky said: ?I?ve known him
for a long time. He had a lot of
football projects in Russia.
?He opened about 150 artificial
pitches. He had the biggest youth
academy.
?I worked in football so we
spoke about developing young
players and football in the country.
?He?s very clever, very open,
and very demanding, like every
rich man ? this is normal.
?If he wants to call me, I?m
always ready to answer.
?Only about football ? players,
methods,
relationships
between
coach and owner, my opinion after
matches, not just Chelsea matches.?
Slutsky, who resigned as Russia
boss after Euro 2016, said: ?Ice
hockey is more popular in Russia
than football. If I had been coach
of the national ice hockey team,
maybe I?d have met Mr Putin.?
SLUTSKY ON
ENGLISH GAME
WHILE he may have had only
six months at the KC Stadium,
Leonid Slutsky still dreams of
returning to the English game.
The ex-CSKA Moscow boss
won only FOUR of his 20 league
games in charge of the Tigers.
And after Slutsky?s interview, a
woman in the hotel lounge who
had just been told who he was,
said: ?So you?re the one to blame
for Hull being so bad??
Slutsky laughs good-naturedly
but claims he enjoyed his spell at
Hull, which ended in December.
The 46-year-old, who will start
his new job at Dutch club Vitesse
Arnhem next season, said: ?Hull
was not the most successful time
in my life but, as an experience,
it was an unbelievable time.
?It?s the best level of organisation, of players, of supporter
interest, it?s top, top, top. Maybe
one day I will come back.
?I continue my foreign career. I
work eight hours a day on
English lessons. In Holland, the
language of the dressing room
will be English. I dream of working in English football again.?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the winner at

Chicago Fire.
That followed the dazzling derby double
he got on his debut, a stunning equaliser
and headed winner to turn a 3-2 deficit
into a memorable 4-3 victory over Los
Angeles FC.
And that is where United academy
product Thorrington is having a massive
say behind the scenes.
While Zlatan is bringing the glitz to
cross-city rivals Galaxy, Thorrington is
general manager at LAFC ? helping to
shape the MLS newcomers, who are
backed by movie star Will Ferrell.
And the South African, who still calls
on Sir Alex Ferguson for advice, is using
his United experiences to help him along
the way.
Thorrington, 38, was at United to see the
club?s famous Class of 92 fulfil their huge
potential,
winning
an
unprecedented
Treble in 1999.
He
told

?That was the time where David

educational.

for

England for a three-year Huddersfield stint.
He also had a short spell at Grimsby

Fergie. Thorrington said: ?I hadn?t seen

Ant saves ref

By KEN LAWRENCE
ANTHONY GERRARD saved
referee Peter Bankes from
being assaulted by a crazed
fan just seconds after the
official had awarded a
penalty against him.
Only the swift actions of the
Oldham defender ? cousin of
Steven Gerrard ? prevented
the supporter making contact.
Ref Bankes ruled that Gerrard, 32, had fouled Rochdale
attacker Joe Thompson.
Gerrard, at first stunned by
the decision, headed towards
the centre of the box.
At the same time, the pitch
invader made a 40-yard run
to the same spot.
Gerrard, sensing the danger
the referee was in, baulked
the thug, who slipped.
The Latics hero and players

attacker
before he was hustled away
by security men.
Rochdale will now face an

Oldham boss Richie Wellens
said: ?I didn?t see all of what

was awarded.

?It was a fair point but I am disappointed we didn?t get all three.?

WILL GRIGG flickered
into life with a late,
great
goal
to
take
Wigan within touching
distance of promotion.
The forward was left on
the bench until the 67th
minute by boss Paul Cook.
But there was still time for
the super striker to keep up
his amazing scoring streak.
Skipper Sam Morsy sent
fellow sub Devante Cole away
in the 87th minute and his
unselfish assist let Grigg tap in
his 25th goal of the season.
It was a huge relief for leaders Latics, who are eight points
clear of third-placed Shrewsbury with four games left.
Cook could celebrate promotion at Fleetwood on Saturday
and said: ?It?s an outstanding
win because three points were

?It?s such a rollercoaster but

Karl Robinson looked set to
shut out Wigan on their home
soil for the second time after a
goalless draw in December
with old club Charlton.
He was Grigg?s boss at MK
Dons and said: ?I know what
Will does. When you bring

?We had grown in confidence
but the problem is we have

Latics took the restart and
Morsy ran towards the empty
goal but referee Trevor Kettle
blew his whistle to stop him
scoring a controversial opener.
The incident heated up the
game, with both managers told
off by Kettle for arguing about
decisions as the tackles flew in.
Wigan midfielder Max Power
moved to right-back in a
reshuffle and nearly caught out
Simon
Eastwood
with
a
30-yarder the keeper fumbled
before saving his blushes.
Then Michael Jacobs rattled
the bar as the gaps slowly
emerged in the U?s back line.
Power brought a flying save
out of Eastwood before Alex

the line from Oxford old boy
Chey Dunkley.

Oxford a shock lead with a

Their best hope was from

from making that plan work.
Wigan could have made it
2-0 at the death when lively
Cole was denied by Eastwood
touching his shot on to the
post in injury-time.
Oxford are four points clear
of the drop zone and still looking over their shoulders.
They should be safe but will
feel sick to have lost a precious
point so late.

IS BOWYER?S ACE
into the play-off places ? a point
clear of Scunthorpe and Plymouth
and two ahead of Pompey ahead of
this weekend?s crunch clash.
The home side started in lively
fashion with Mark Marshall unlucky
to see his goal-bound drive rebound
off Mat Sadler for a corner.
Shrews kept pushing but could not
find a way through an Addicks
defence ably marshalled by Pearce
and Patrick Bauer.
Stephy Mavididi missed a glorious
chance to score on 25 minutes. The
Arsenal loanee cut in from the left
and found himself with just Dean
Henderson to beat ? only to shoot
straight at the Shrewsbury keeper.
Carlton Morris then went close for
Shrewsbury with a searing drive that
was bravely blocked by Bauer.
But the home side lacked the
imagination to turn prolonged periods
of possession into even a single goal
and paid the price as the deadlock
was broken on 74 minutes.
Jake Forster-Caskey was fouled on
the Charlton left and took the freekick himself, whipping a ball into
the home six-yard box where Pearce
braved flying boots to fling himself
forward and head home.
Charlton enjoyed their best period
of pressure after the goal with Ezri
Konsa and Magennis both going close
and Henderson saving at his near post
from the impressive Forster-Caskey.
Keeper Henderson went forward in
a desperate attempt to force an
equaliser ? and Charlton cashed in
on the extra space in injury time
when
Henderson
lost
the
ball
35 yards from goal and Magennis
chipped into the home net.
Shrews stayed third but are still
five points adrift of second-placed
Blackburn with four games to play
each.
Boss Paul Hurst admitted: ?This
was a tough result to take.
?We were good in patches, particularly in the first half.
?But I will not be critical because
if someone had told us last August
that we would be occupying a prime
play-off place, we would have taken
that.?

one league win in 14.
City boss Simon Grayson
said: ?The mood in the
camp has improved.
?There?s
no
getting
away from the fact the
last few months have been
difficult and that confidence had been hit.
?It was a big result and
a big performance. We
had to go to another level,
you?ve got to do more
than the last game.?
Portsmouth boss Kenny
Jackett said: ?It?s a blow

felt we had the ball and

?The goals we conceded
were criminal really.?
Nat Knight-Percival nodded in the opener on 14
minutes, his first league
goal since September 30.
Brett Pitman?s 23rd this
term, his eighth in seven
matches, levelled for Pompey just past the hour.
But Burton loanee Lund
slid in his first City goal
on 71 minutes to keep
alive their faint top-six bid.
City?s Tyrell Robinson
was given oxygen and
taken off on a stretcher
after a clash with Nathan
Thompson.

the ones who deserve it.
The striker chipped in with
two goals in as many minutes to
shake up Yeovil and extend the
Reds? unbeaten run to 14 games.
It meant club owner Andy
Holt would again be digging
deep to keep his promise of
giving the players �0 for
?McDonald?s or the like? when
they win.
And as the promotion party
started, Kee said: ?You can see
what it means to everyone here.
It?s brilliant.
?We have worked so hard this
season and my intention now is
to get very drunk!?
Boss John Coleman, who has
worked wonders on the Football
League?s second-smallest budget,
added: ?It would have been my
dad?s 91st birthday today so I
feel he played some part in it.
?We were absolutely fantastic
and could have won 16-0. I?m so
?What we have here is young,
hungry players who want to

?I don?t know how high this
model will take us but I can?t
wait to try it in League One.?
Yeovil started well and it was
home keeper Aaron Chapman
who pulled off a stunning save
to keep out Rhys Browne.
But Kee headed home Sean
McConville?s 26th-minute corner.
Then, on Accrington?s next
attack, a Jordan Clark effort
was fumbled by keeper Jonny
Maddison and Kee pounced for
his 25th goal of the season.

Cow and grate
By ANDY BAKER
IMPS boss Danny Cowley accused
referee John Brooks of costing his
side victory.
The official ruled out Matt Rhead?s
header on the stroke of half-time for
a push by the striker.
But Cowley said: ?I thought the
referee got a few key decisions wrong.
?I?ve seen the incidents back ?
Matt?s goal clearly should have stood
and in the second half Harry Anderson was brought down in the area.?
In extremely blustery conditions,
both sides struggled to get a foothold
in a game littered with fouls.
Wycombe were dealt a blow when

Adebayo Akinfenwa limped off in the

After the break, Nathan Tyson
tested Ryan Allsop in the Lincoln goal
with a thumping drive from 35 yards.
At the other end Sam Habergham
and Matt Green almost caught out
Wanderers with a neat free-kick.
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth
said: ?I?m really proud of our players.
?We were so resilient ? and we

GARRE . . . City starlet
Champs
cleared
over Ben
By MARTIN LIPTON
MANCHESTER CITY have
been cleared of any
misconduct
over
the
controversial signing of
teenager Benjamin Garre.
The
newly
crowned
Premier League champs
were accused by his
former club, Argentina?s
Velez Sarsfield, of illegally
landing the winger.
They complained to Fifa
and argued that Garre had
been ?trafficked?.
World football chiefs
found in City?s favour so
Velez appealed to the
Court of Arbitration for
Sport in Switzerland.
And
yesterday
CAS
refused to uphold the
case and also backed City.
Velez had claimed the
Etihad side made contact
with Argentine Garre when
he was 15 and then signed
him just days after his
16th birthday in July 2016.
Velez president Raul
Gamez accused City of an
?immoral?
act
that
