HE?S BACK
Victims? fury as rapist
switched to London jail
EXCLUSIVE by TOM WELLS
BLACK cab rapist John Worboys
is back in London ? where the
vast majority of his sickening
attacks on women took place.
He was secretly driven to Belmarsh
jail from HMP Wakefield at the weekend ahead of his impending release.
The revelation that Worboys, 60,
who is feared to have attacked 200
women, is back in the capital will
spark uproar. One victim said: ?I?m
terrified he?ll come after me.?

?I.S.
MAKE ?EM PAY UP FBGAFFE?
FACEBOOK should pay news
outlets for using their stories,
Rupert Murdoch has said.
The Executive Chairman of The
Sun?s owner News Corp said news
publishers ?are enhancing the value
and integrity of Facebook through
their news and content but are not
being adequately rewarded?.
Mr Murdoch said the social media
giant should recognise ?trusted? news
publishers and pay them ?a carriage
fee?. These are used by cable TV
companies to pay channels whose
material they use.
Mr Murdoch said: ?Carriage payments would have a minor impact
on Facebook?s profits but a major
impact on the prospects for publish-
ers and journalists. Facebook and
Google have popularised scurrilous
news sources through algorithms that
are profitable for these platforms
but inherently unreliable.
?Remedial measures that both
companies have so far proposed
are inadequate commercially,
socially and journalistically.
?I have yet to see a proposal
that truly recognises the investment in and the social value of
professional journalism.? Calling on
Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to
act, he added: ?If Facebook wants to
recognise ?trusted? publishers then it
should pay those publishers a
carriage fee similar to the model
adopted by cable companies.?
Facebook, with more than two
billion monthly users, has been
battling to stem a flood of
so-called fake news and hoaxes.
Time to act . . . Zuckerberg

In a clear dig at

rebranded France as

for foreign companies.
THE Prime Minister will today face fresh
pressure from Boris Johnson to make good on
Vote Leave?s claims that NHS spending can be
increased after Brexit.
The Foreign Secretary will use the Cabinet?s
weekly meeting to urge Theresa May
to divert �0million-a-week of the
money we currently give Brussels
towards the Health Service.
Britain is expected to continue
making contributions to the EU
until 2021. But Mr Johnson, right,
wants the NHS to get the extra
money ? �illion a year ?
from next March.

But he said it was
because ?the world is

He said the UK

But he also insisted
he had not changed U-turn . . . O?Neill

and that, financially, Brexit is ?a weird

His remarks came as the International Monetary Fund said US growth
would accelerate from 2.3 per cent last
year to 2.7 per cent in 2018.
The IMF also upgraded its forecast
for the world economy by 0.2 per cent
to 3.9 per cent for 2018 and 2019.
But the UK?s outlook was slashed

PLUSH loo roll brand Velvet

Prowling . . . Worboys? black cab
HMP Belmarsh
EXCLUSIVE by TOM WELLS, Chief Reporter
London
THE return of serial rapist John
Worboys to London is his terrified victims? worst nightmare.
Worboys, 60, prowled the city?s
streets for years in a black cab seeking his prey ? and the vast majority
of his victims were attacked there.
Secret move
to London
will horrify
his victims
Legal bid . . . Wistrich
is fighting for victims
After the shock news that the Parole
Board was to release him, those victims
begged for him to be banned from London.
The Sun?s revelation he was secretly moved
from Wakefield Prison, West Yorks, to HMP
Belmarsh, South East London, at the weekend pending release will horrify them.
Worboys is known to have kept a record
of some victims? addresses. And many have
spoken publicly of their horror at the
thought of him returning.
One said: ?I am genuinely terrified he is
going to come after me.
?Why should we think he won?t? He
knows where so many of his victims live.?
Another said: ?Surely one of the conditions of his licence must be that he cannot
come back to the scene of his crimes??
News of Worboys? prison move emerged
hours after Parole Board chairman Nick
Hardwick said he had an ?open mind?
over calls to ban Worboys from London.
London MPs led by Boris Johnson and
Zac Goldsmith last week signed a letter to
the Parole Board calling for Worboys to be
excluded from the capital. It was backed
by one of his victims who was attacked by
Worboys in 2007 when she was 19.
A source said of the move to Belmarsh:
?This represents Worboys? first major step
towards freedom. The wheels are now in
motion. Barring a remarkable intervention
by the courts, there is nothing that can be
done to stop him being out in February.?
Worboys, of Rotherhithe, South London
was jailed indefinitely in 2009 for 19
offences including rape and sex assault.
But police believe he attacked as many as
200 women. He has served less than nine
years. He will be held at Belmarsh before
being found temporary lodgings at one of
England?s 101 probation hostels.
Newly released cons normally spend
around three months in the halfway houses
before moving back into the community.
The fury over the decision to free Worboys means he is likely to be housed outside central London. The Belmarsh move
suggests somewhere in the Home Counties.
In recent years notorious criminals have
been placed in jail hostels far from their
former haunts.
Karen Matthews, who faked the kidnap
of daughter Shannon in Dewsbury, West
Yorks, was placed in Reading.
Tracey Connelly, jailed over the death of
baby son Peter Connelly in North London,
was sent to Lancashire.
tom.wells@the-sun.co.uk
Beast freed
by 2 women
TWO of the three Parole Board
members who ordered Worboys
to be freed are women ? including the chair of the hearing.
The identities of the panel
members that made the controversial November ruling have
been kept a strict secret, along
with the report itself.
Worboys? victims launched a
crowdfunding campaign to pay
for a lawsuit to get the information disclosed. Almost �,000
has been raised so far.
On Friday Justice Secretary
David Gauke told the Commons
he would not launch his own
judicial review.
Victims? lawyer Harriet Wistrich launches a legal challenge
tomorrow with a possible separate move to keep Worboys
locked up while it is heard.

Beatrice, 29, has red

The elder sister is seventh in line to the throne
and Eugenie eighth.
Beatrice, who had a
ten-year relationship with
businessman Dave Clark
until 2016, is thought to be
single. Eugenie is engaged.
Look of love . . . couple and right, Eugenie with
Sienna Miller, Margot Robbie, Poppy Jamie,
Cara Delevingne and Prince Harry, front

announced their engagement via
Buckingham Palace, will marry in
the autumn at St George?s Chapel,
Windsor.
It will be the second royal wedding at the chapel this year. Prince
Harry and Meghan Markle are to
marry there in May.
Yesterday Eugenie?s dad Prince
Andrew, 57, said: ?I?m just completely overjoyed for them and wish
them every happiness.?
But he added: ?We can?t fix a
date yet, we?ve got to look at
everyone?s diaries. It?s a bit more
complicated than that.?
Mum Sarah Ferguson, 58, wrote
of her ?total joy? on Twitter. She
posted snaps of the couple.
With one of the pair on a boat,
she wrote: ?They float with laughter
and love . . . although a boat helps.?
Jack?s parents, Nicola and George,
said in a statement: ?We could not
be more delighted.?
Within hours of yesterday morning?s announcement, the couple
released a set of engagement pictures taken in Buckingham Palace.
Eugenie showed off her engagement ring ? a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds ?
which the couple designed together.
She recycled a �288 floral dress
by Erdem, which she also wore for
a 2016 shoot with Harper?s Bazaar
? in stark contrast to the �,000
couture gown Meghan Markle wore
for her engagement photos.
Eugenie matched her dress with
Jimmy Choo shoes, while Jack wore
a dark suit and red tie. The wedding celebrations, excluding security, will be paid for privately.
Jack?s relationship with Eugenie
survived the embarrassment of
X-rated photos of his 21st birthday
leaking online.
A female pal published six
pictures of him blindfolded, groping
a stripper?s breasts as he had candle wax dumped over him.
They emerged in 2013 ? when the
relationship was in full swing. A
year later his 27th birthday party
at Osteria Dell?Arancio restaurant
in Chelsea got so raucous Fergie
had to apologise to other diners.
Jack worked his way into the
royal set after choosing hospitality
over a job in the city.
While posh pals from Stowe, his
�,000-a-year private school, went
off to Oxbridge universities, he
went straight to waiting tables.
He was at upmarket City restaurant, Devonshire Terrace, ? popular
with bankers ? when he first met
Eugenie. It was at Prince Andrew?s
50th birthday on the Swiss ski
slopes of Verbier that they first
brushed shoulders. At the time
Eugenie
was
studying
English,
politics and history at Newcastle
University.
With her own reputation for hard
partying, the pair got on famously.
Jack worked at two pubs in
Chelsea where he served Sloane
Ranger clientele
He met Prince Harry and club
baron Guy Pelly, who hired him to
manage at exclusive night spot
Mahiki, in Mayfair.
Jack left in 2010 to start his own
wine merchants and is now brand
ambassador of Casamigos Tequila,
co-founded by George Clooney.

Simon Bailey, Chief
Constable of Norfolk
Police, said online
firms had failed to
take steps to stop
their sites being used
to groom children.

Chief Con Bailey
He said: ?These companies are making sums of
money which are huge.
But the fact is that
Chatrooms ?not safe?
children are being abused
and not enough is being
done to make chatrooms safe
places for our children to go.
?Not enough is being done

?Absolutely no question at

Mr Bailey acknowledged
that internet giants were

essential that obscene images
were swiftly removed.
And he told ITV News that
the threat from sex offenders
online was growing at a
?phenomenal pace?, leaving
children
at
?really

Government figures show a
700 per increase in the number
of
indecent
images
referred to law enforcement
agencies since 2013.
Mr Bailey said chatrooms
needed to be scrutinised to
make sure young people can
safely use them without the
risk of an adult attempting
to groom them.
He said internet companies
have a ?moral and social
responsibility to make their
platforms safe?.
Mr Bailey added: ?They are
making some progress but it
is nowhere near enough.?
Facebook and Instagram
said they have ?zero tolerance for child exploitation?

firm guilt
over pilot
tragedy
By ROB PATTINSON
THE firm behind an
ejector seat that fired a
Red Arrows pilot to his
death has admitted blame
over his parachute failing
to open.
Flt Lt Sean Cunningham, 35, died after it sent
him 300ft into the air

his jet was parked.

?MOSQUE

INSPIRED
BY BEEB
DRAMA?
By MIKE SULLIVAN, Crime Editor
A VAN driver ploughed into a crowd near a
mosque to kill as many Muslims as possible
after being inspired by a drama about the
Rochdale sex abuse gangs, a court heard.
Darren Osborne, 48, killed Makram Ali, 51, and
injured nine others after becoming obsessed with
Muslims having watched BBC drama Three Girls,
jurors were told.
He also poured scorn on
pop star Lily Allen and
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, accusing them of doing
nothing to prevent another
sex scandal in Rotherham.
Osborne?s former partner
Sarah Andrews said they
watched Three Girls, about
young girls being exploited
by Muslim men, last May.
She told Woolwich crown
court: ?He was angry about
seeing young girls exploited
in this way. He said all
Muslims are raping kids
and are capable of doing so.
?I think he was a ticking
timebomb. I should have
realised what was going on.?
The court heard Osborne
researched far-right group
Britain First and watched
videos of former English
Defence
League
leader
Tommy Robinson.
Shortly
before
the
attack, alcoholic loner
Osborne is said to
have told a serving
soldier in a pub
that
he
was
going
to
take
matters into his
own hands.
He then got in

EXPERT ARGUES FOR EXTRA CASH
�bn
100,000
SAYS
Defend this
WE know the MoD is short of money. But
the rises in allowances for veterans and
their widows and children are derisory.
Why has the Government targeted them
for penny-pinching when the Triple Lock
still guarantees all OAPs a decent hike?
The winter fuel allowance is doled out
to every pensioner, some worth millions.
But a fallen soldier?s orphaned kids get
75p extra a week. It is disgraceful.
The Triple Lock must protect them
too. That?s the least we should do.
Theresa May must find the money to
fund defence properly. The aid budget is
the place to look.
Poor thinking
IT is a tragedy that Oxfam has become a
front for anti-capitalist Corbynistas.
The charity?s mission is to alleviate
poverty. But its bosses think that?s done
using socialist controls on the economy.
?Narrowing inequality? by hammering
the rich does not help the poor.
Capitalism does. Over 30 years it has
dragged more than a billion people out
of dire poverty in India and China.
By contrast, socialism is starving citizens to death in once-rich Venezuela.
Oxfam?s website was blindly praising
the country?s fight against inequality in
2010, just before its economy collapsed.
And yet, like Corbyn, it still attacks
?extreme capitalism? and wants the rich
to ?pay a price?. Perhaps its boss has
already divvied up �0,000 of his own
�7,000 salary among his junior staff.
Somehow we doubt it.
Mob justice
IT should surprise no one that vigilante
gangs are springing up to take on duties
police chiefs have shamefully abandoned.
The volunteer army patrolling Wickford, Essex, will be just the start.
Guess what happens when forces
nationwide decide burglaries are too
time-consuming to investigate? They
soar ? up a fifth in London alone in one
year ? and people no longer feel safe.
Cops will blame Tory cuts. And money
IS tight. But they always have enough
staff for politically correct stunts, or
ancient and unprovable sex abuse
cases, or to nick Twitter trolls.
Chiefs must focus on the basics ?
protecting citizens who pay their wages.
Brexit U-turn
IT must make George Osborne queasy to
see an old Treasury mate U-turn on Brexit.
Remainer Lord O?Neill now says even
our losses from a ?no-deal? should be
wiped out by trading opportunities with
giant and booming economies abroad.
And, though still not keen on leaving,
he admits he?s ?embarrassed? our economy has proved far more ?robust? than
the Treasury?s Project Fear claimed.
We rejoice when a spinner repents.

DARKEST HOURS
. . . a Royal Marine
in Afghanistan
Our smallest Army
since Waterloo. Any
more cuts will kill it
DEFENCE is once again a
monumental mess.
Nearly eight years since the
Conservatives
came
into
government, we have selfinflicted a strategic loss of
fighting power and reputation.
We
are
facing
another
serious black hole in the
defence equipment programme.
What is going on?
Some recently retired defence
chiefs, traditionally the only
ones allowed to speak the
brutal truth in public, have
been scathing about the impact
of year-upon-year cutbacks.
General Sir Richard Barrons
assesses that our Forces are
not fit for purpose and that
the Army is 20 years out of
date in terms of serious warfighting capability.
Admiral
Sir
George
Zambellas worries we are in
danger of becoming a Third
World
nation
in
military
terms and says the Navy is
hollowed out.
Then
yesterday,
in
an
extremely
rare
public
admonishment from a serving
general, current Army chief
Sir Nick Carter declared the
country would struggle to deal
with Russia on the battlefield.
If more money is not found
and cuts to frontline forces go
ahead, we risk losing two
vital
components
of
our
national security: The critical
mass and corporate morale of
our Armed Forces.
Our Armed Forces are part
insurance policy, part deterrent,
and they deliver considerable
soft power. Their core and
defining role is hard power ?
all the way to last-resort
aggressive homeland defence.
Thus the critical mass of
armed
forces
is
about

fighting power. This consists
of
mainly
young
people,
weapons systems, logistics and
networks integrated into highly
trained and tuned teams.
The physical component of
military
power
is
highly
visible and measurable. More
important,
though,
is
the
invisible moral component.
This fighting spirit and
determination to win depends
upon
quality
recruitment,
high standards of training,
leadership and unit spirit.
Here is the rub. We have
already
dropped
beneath
critical mass. Any further
frontline cuts will take us
significantly beneath it.
Defence corporate morale,
which has been fragile for
some time, would take a body
blow. Cutting today?s 78,000strong Army (last this size
post-Waterloo) and reducing
our one Royal Marines brigade
and some of its specialist
shipping, as proposed, will
break the camel?s back.
Other departments of state
reaching crisis point can be
turned
around
relatively
quickly. Not so defence. The
timelines
for
procuring
equipment,
recruiting
and
developing trained personnel
and units are much longer.
The lasting impact of failure
in the meantime can be
catastrophic.
We already face a serious
problem
recruiting
and
retaining servicemen. Tommy
Atkins?
parents
are
not
encouraging Tommy to
End the
frontline
cuts
join up, and Tommy is not
signing up in anything like
the numbers required. An
atmosphere of near-permanent
decline has taken root.
We
have
sacrificed
too
much in terms of size and
numbers to pay for some topof-the-range ?exquisite? weapon
platforms and have much less
resilience than we need.
We have just 19 destroyers
and frigates. No matter how
capable the ships, they cannot
be in two places at once.
Ships forced to leave post for
mechanical reasons have not
been replaced.
World-class assets
In the age of drone and
missile swarm attacks, overall
size and numbers have a
quality of their own.
Our Army does not have
the vehicles that enabled the
French army to conduct a
brilliant campaign in Mali in
2013. It is years behind French
armoured force capability.
Comparisons of some key
equipment and formation-level
training are embarrassing.
The hopeless and facile
Government response to all
this has been to trumpet our
standing as the world?s fifthhighest defence spender, and
to point to some of our
world-class defence assets.
The claim that we are one
of few allies that meets the
Nato two per cent defence
expenditure target convinces
few serious commentators. It
is based on very creative
Spending
review every
five years
accounting. Nevertheless, we
spend a lot on other elements
of national security, including
GCHQ, intelligence services,
cyber, border force and police.
With
the
NHS
needing
�illion (King?s Fund charity
estimate), and housing, prisons
and transport high priorities,
is it realistic to expect defence
to get an extra �illion?
YES, for the reasons outlined. Further frontline cuts
would imperil our national
security, alienate a significant
number of voters, including
2.5million ex-servicemen, and
ruin
another
Conservative
core brand and competence.
So what would be the smart
things for the PM to do?
She should announce that
there
will
be
no
more
frontline cuts, trigger a formal
defence
review
and
an
informal, quicker report on
defence
availability,
sustainability and resilience.
She should further shake up
the
defence
procurement
system to include adjustment
of
the
wasteful
and
bureaucratic annual defence
costings exercise to every
three or five years.
She should call for options
for part use of the aid budget
for ?dual use? of defence
personnel and assets.
Finally, she should do what
Tony Blair concluded but
never
applied,
solve
the
recurring defence elephant in
the room issue by creating a
separate budget for Trident.

CPS guv:
?No rape?
if victims

By TOM WELLS
WOMEN who stay silent
during rape are likely to
see their cases dropped,
the UK?s top prosecutor
has warned.
Crown Prosecution Service chief Alison Saunders
said not speaking out at
the time could give suspects a ?reasonable belief?
women had consented.
And she added accused
men could also avoid
charges if ?other actions?
by the alleged victim led
them to think both parties had agreed to sex.
Ms Saunders spoke out
after three recent cases
collapsed against young
men charged with rape.
Tory MP Anna Soubry
condemned her ?ill-informed comments?.
Deputy head Kato Harris ? cleared of rape in 15
minutes by a jury due to
lack of evidence ? called

star Malcolm Hebden is
taking an extended break
from playing the soap?s
nosy Norris Cole.
The 78-year-old actor has
been a familiar face on the
cobbles since 1994.
But he has now been allowed
prolonged time off ? with ITV
producers and the show?s cast
unsure when he will return.
A ITV source said: ?Malcolm is
not getting any younger.
?He booked a bit of time off
just before Christmas, but that
annual leave has now become
longer than first planned. Bosses
do not know when he?ll be back.
?It?s easy to cover a period of a
few weeks without mentioning
Norris on screen but any longer
and fans start to question why a
character is not there.?
Insiders say there is no deadline for Malcolm?s return.
His absence comes six years
after he fell ill on set and was
taken to hospital ? an incident
later confirmed as not serious.
Last week he was the victim of
a sick hoax after a US website

NISH IS
NOT UP
TO MASH
THE Mash Report is back
for a second run, even
though the first one wasn?t
just unfunny ? it was anticomedy.
One of those shows
that?s less concerned with
making viewers laugh than
with listing all the things
they shouldn?t be able to
think, say or do, such as
voting for the
Conservatives and Brexit.
Nothing, of course ?
including the welcome
presence of token Tory
Geoff Norcott ? can
immediately cure the
crippling left-wing bias of
television comedy units,
who require no memo to
put Jeremy Corbyn, Diane
Abbott and the Labour
gang off-limits.
But it would improve The
Mash Report by about
50 per cent if it ditched
host Nish Kumar, who isn?t
satirising anything here.
He?s just spewing out his
own political propaganda,
which is every bit as dumb,
witless, twisted, smug
and egotistical as the
Donald Trump tweets he
mocks.
Quite apart from missing

the satirical point of the

thinks he?s a dangerous,

force of comedy nature,
rather than a bland,
box-ticking pillar of the
safe-space comedy
establishment, screaming
?RACIST? at regular
intervals and calling out
everyone for their
imagined sexism.
Everyone, that is, apart
from the one organisation
that?s currently at the

ASOS has become the first
major brand to tell its
skinny models to fatten up,
following the backlash over
Victoria Beckham?s use of
skeletal catwalk stars.
The fashion website has told
several models who regularly
work for them to put
weight on their arms and
collarbones if they want
to continue being booked.
One model pictured on the
site was informed that she
looked ?too thin? in photographs ? and that Asos
needed to tread carefully
after Victoria was accused of
portraying a ?dangerous and
unrealistic? message to women.
Last night Felicity Hayward,
Fury . . . Victoria and Sun
story on super-skinny girl
By SARAH PACKER
Bizarre Reporter
plus-size model and founder of
body positivity movement Self Love
Brings Beauty, backed the move to
eradicate ultra-skinny models.
She said: ?There are no two
humans on this planet that are the
same. We are all different and
beautiful in our own way and it?s
about time brands listened.
?They need to make sure
every young eye can see a
role model they can relate
too, whether that be by the
colour of their skin, their disability,
their curves or their birth marks.
?If everyone was represented,
there would be more self love and
confidence in this world.?
The Sun revealed earlier this
month that Victoria used stick-thin
Lithuanian Giedre Dukauskaite, 29,
to model a pair of oversized glasses
from her Spring/Summer 2018 eyewear range. Giedre?s skinniness
prompted one critic to accuse Posh
of using ?a model who looks like a
teenager with severe anorexia?.
And after the photographs were
released on the official Facebook
page for Posh, 43, fans were also
quick to slam her for ?promoting
eating disorders?.
Lorraine Sharpe said: ?The model
looks very poorly. This look definitely should not be promoted. She
looks dangerously thin.?
But after Asos revealed their new
approach, some models insisted they
were happy with their slender figures and were upset by the firm?s
new rules. One said: ?I was told
that I needed to put weight on my
arms and collarbone if I wanted to
work for them again.
?The feedback Asos gave my
booker was that I look too small in
photographs and they had to clamp
down on using ?skinny models? after
already receiving an online backlash
when using smaller girls.
?I?ve worked for the brand before
and my body shape hasn?t changed.
?I?m a normal size eight and it
was upsetting that they had an
issue. They feel forced to be politically correct after Victoria was scrutinised for using a skinny model
and it feels unfair.?
An Asos spokesman declined to
comment but the firm?s website
insists the company adheres to a
model welfare policy.
It states that they ?closely monitor
models and raise any concerns
about
their
health
with
their
agency? and adds that the firm only
?employ models who are a healthy
weight and shape?.

the corporation has the
ability to sort out the

former BBC China editor

resign this year.
Speaking about the
need for change, he said:
?I?m all in favour of it. It?s
obviously long overdue.

for it. You always want the

WILLIAM ORDERED FAMOUS ?DERMOT HUG?
DERMOT O?LEARY, who hosts
tonight?s NTAs, has told of an
extraordinary royal request.
As he visited Bizarre HQ to guest
edit today?s column, the TV presenter
revealed PRINCE WILLIAM asked him
for a ?Dermot hug?.
It happened as he, NICOLE SCHERZINGER and LOUIS WALSH queued to
meet the Duke of Cambridge at the
2017 Pride of Britain Awards.
Dermot said: ?Everyone who?s getting an award meets the royals.
?When it was PRINCE CHARLES
there was more of a semi-circle,
with everyone waiting to shake his
hand, but William was more chilled
and was saying hello to everyone.
?Nicole told him her code name in
PUSSYCAT
DOLLS
was
Prince
William, which he loved.
?Then he came to me and said,
?You know what I need? I need a
Dermot hug?, and I said, ?Right,
bring it on?. So we had a hug and
he went, ?Oh that?s a good hug, and
it?s important to hug?.?
Dermot thinks Wills must watch X
Factor after knowing about his
trademark hugs, which have consoled hundreds of failed contestants.
He added: ?If he was briefed he
was exceptionally well briefed. It
was a touching moment, we brought
it in together. He?s a good hugger.?
He went on to praise William and
PRINCE HARRY for their work with
mental health charities, and for
reaching out to ANT McPARTLIN
after he opened up about his own
battles.
Host Dermot admitted he will be
rooting for Ant and DECLAN DONNELLY to scoop Presenter Of The
Year at tonight?s National Television
Awards at London?s O2 Arena.
?Tough time?
He said: ?I desperately want them
to win. One of the things I?m most
excited about is to announce that
Ant is there.
?It?s great to see a friend fit and
healthy.
He
looks
great,
he?s
obviously been through a tough time
but his health and his happiness are
important.
?I won?t hound anyone but I?ll
send him a text from time to time,
just saying, ?Ant, how are you doing?
Sending you love?.?
Dermot exclusively revealed that
SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH will bag
the Impact Award for the momentous success of Blue Planet II.
He said: ?He is an icon. We?re
honoured to have him in the room.?
Dermot will also be on hand to

?We?re also doing musical tributes.

KATE JACKSON
Although she had excitedly tweeted the
news that she had made the shortlist,
Rachel is now remaining coy about her
chances of winning.
But she did say: ?It would be really
good for this subject to be more highprofile and in front of a mainstream
audience, which I believe it should be.?
The story was mainly filmed at
Tunstall Stych Farm, in Rachel?s home
village of Caverswall, Staffs, and was
paid for through crowdfunding.
Its leading lady is six-year-old Maisie
Sly, who is deaf and won the part after
her hearing parents answered Rachel?s
Facebook ad for a deaf child actress.
Speaking in sign language, Maisie said:
?It was hard work because sometimes I
had to film things again and again.
?I wanted to show people that deaf
children can do anything.?
She added: ?I think we?re going to go
to the Oscars.?
While the storyline is based on a
friend who Rachel met in America, her
passion for raising awareness of the
struggles faced by deaf people came
from her late father.
She said: ?Dad tried to put on a brave
face for us and pretend everything was
fine but it meant a huge adjustment for
the family.
?There are so many everyday things
that you take for granted, such as
answering the telephone or chatting
round the meal table.?
It is not clear what caused Geoff?s
deafness, but for the last 18 months of
his life he could not even hear with the
help of hearing aids.
Rachel said: ?One explanation was that
it was a side-effect of successful chemotherapy treatment he?d had for throat
cancer, but that was years earlier.?
After deafness struck, Rachel watched
as Geoff, who ran a haulage firm,
suddenly struggled to drive, unable to
hear sirens or car horns.
She said: ?I witnessed my superhero
dad for the first time seem vulnerable
and I noticed how easy it was for people
to leave him out, not intentionally but in
a group conversation made up of
speaking and listening.
?When someone?s ears don?t work, how
included can they be??
?French is learnt in schools
? but not sign language?
And so, at 16, she started to learn sign
language. She persevered for five years,
eventually becoming a qualified interpreter. She recalled: ?I found it a helpful
way of dealing with what had happened.
?It made me more aware about the
things my dad might have gone through.?
Rachel was also pursuing an acting
career. Having started drama and dance
lessons at six, she went on to land small
parts in Waterloo Road and Holby City
before Hollyoaks came along in 2010
with the role of glamorous schemer
Mitzeee Minniver.
During her three years in the Channel
4 soap Rachel started working with the
National Deaf Children?s Society. She
said: ?I?d followed their work for a few
years and just said if there was anything
I could do to help, let me know.
?I?ve been actively involved in fundraising and campaigns ever since.? That
includes a sponsored skydive and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania.
Rachel is also a patron of the charity
dDeaflinks Staffordshire, for which she
completed a ten-day fundraising trek
along the Great Wall of China.
And she is continuing her mission to
help deaf people. One of her biggest
concerns is the lack of provision for deaf
children in mainstream schools, with figures showing 78 per cent of them do not
receive additional support.
She said last year: ?The statistics of
children failing GCSEs is far too high
and completely avoidable.
?In 2003 the Government recognised sign language as its own
language, yet 14 years later
we still don?t learn sign
language in schools but we
learn
French,
German,
Spanish and more.
?There is a huge lack of
awareness within education
in mainstream schools and
I will do everything I can
to change that.?
Rachel?s commitment
to deaf causes continued when she was cast
in
American
TV
drama
series
Switched At Birth
in 2014, playing a
student
teacher
who was fluent in
sign language.
Her three years
in
the
groundbreaking
teen
drama included an
SOAPERSTAR . . . as
Mitzeee in Hollyoaks
entire episode conducted in sign language. Rachel recalled: ?American sign
language is quite different from British,
including the entire alphabet, so it
meant some extra learning.?
Living in LA for months at a time, she
became pals with Brit TV host and fellow expat Kelly Brook, and developed a
taste for the healthy Californian lifestyle.
She said: ?Healthy food is more accessible there. It?s easy to get a smoothie or
a really healthy meal. When I come
home I invariably put on a few pounds,
then run it off again afterwards.?
She added: ?There can be a social
pressure on women to look a certain
way, but as long as I?m happy with
myself,
then
it
doesn?t
matter.
?Like all women, I put on
my jeans sometimes and
think they?re a bit tight, so
I go for an extra run.?
And she always seemed
unlikely to succumb to
the Californian fitness
world?s size-zero fixation.
Rachel is now back
in the UK and has
been
filming
the
second
series
of
BBC2
comedy
White Gold, but in
LA in 2015 she
said: ?I miss my
mum and my family most of all but
in terms of food, I
miss
proper
tea,
baked
beans,
Wrights
pies
and
Staffordshire oatcakes
with cheese and bacon.?

WHAT? The National
Television Awards 2018,
ITV1, 7.30pm.
WHY? The cream of the
crop in the world of British
TV gather at London?s O2
arena to battle it out for a
coveted gong. Hosted by
DERMOT O?LEARY.
McMAFIA
IS NORT
FOR US
WITH a �million budget,
JAMES NORTON as the star
and a primetime BBC1 slot,
McMafia promised so much
but totally failed to deliver.
The thriller debuted on New
Year?s Day with a respectable
5.9million viewers tuning in,
but just 3.1million were still
watching by the end of the fifth
episode on Sunday night.
According to my team, who
have watched from the start, it
looked like it would be packed
with sex, violence and jetsetting glamour. But you would
get more drama on a Sunday
night by watching Countryfile.
Viewers have blamed the
slow-moving, complicated
storyline, and many were
disappointed it was not a
successor to The Night
Manager, which starred TOM

WARING
and
SYLVAIN
LONGCHAMBON have slammed Dancing
On Ice judges JAYNE TORVILL and
CHRISTOPHER DEAN for breaking the rules.
Pro skater Sylvain claims that if a celebrity
stumbles during the skate-off they must
immediately get the boot. But the former
Olympic champs chose to save singer
LEMAR from elimination on Sunday ? despite
his near fall ? and axe Steph and Sylvain.
Sylvain said: ?The rules say if there?s a stumble in the skate-off they should be out, if the
other couple skate well. This happened five
years ago with PAMELA ANDERSON. She
had a stumble and was voted out.
?They gave Steph better marks on her main
routine and he stumbled and they chose him.
It is hard to understand when you have two
judges that pick you and the other two don?t.?
I was joined by Sylvain and Steph on
Lorraine yesterday morning, where the
Hollyoaks star showed off her injuries, far left.
Steph added: ?I am going to have a hole
in my life now.?
You can?t cover that with a novelty T-shirt.
PLENTY of people have written off The Apprentice
as a fading show over the past couple of series ?
but I could not disagree more.
The LORD SUGAR-fronted business reality show
(less business, more reality these days) remains a
must-watch for me every year.
That is why I am over the moon with BBC bosses for
giving the Lord their ultimate backing by renewing the
show for three more series. The new deal takes it into
2020 ? and I hope there will be more beyond that.
THE BBC is the first to admit
that some of its Saturday

having your main rival poke

So torn since
my festive fling
Dear Deidre
I HAD sex with a guy at
work after our Christmas
party. It was wonderful
and now I can?t stop
thinking about him.
I?m 24 and I have a boyfriend of
23. But when he mentions our
future, I don?t have any feelings
about it either way.
He?s my safety net because I
don?t want to be alone ? but that?s
the only reason I?m with him.
We?ve fallen out a lot over the
past five years and now I just feel
numb towards him.
I work in the call centre for a
big online store. I was asked to
show a new guy the ropes a while
ago and the sexual tension was
there from the beginning.
He?s 27 and lovely looking. We
got along so well that I actually
looked forward to going to work.
He began messaging me privately
and we were together all night at
the work Christmas do and we
kissed loads. I didn?t care that my
colleagues could see us.
He took me back to his place
and I stayed over. I had never felt
so up for sex in all my life. He

was so loving and I had the best
orgasm ever. I?d not had anything
like that with my boyfriend in
months. He?s not big on foreplay.
I went home when I woke up
the next morning ? it was a
Saturday ? and told my boyfriend
I?d stayed with a female colleague
as I?d had so much to drink.
Back at work on the Monday, I
felt bad for the lad at work, like
I?d used him. He came up to me
and said we needed to talk so I
went outside to the smoking shed
where we kissed and cuddled.
He came round to my flat when
my boyfriend was away for a stag
night with some mates. We started
to get it together but suddenly he
stopped and got out of bed and
said, ?I can?t do this any more.?
We then just lay together not
speaking. He?d left by the morning.
I?ve been working at a different
site since the year started, so I
haven?t seen him since and I?m not
due to go back to my old place for
another three weeks. I don?t know
what to do.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Your lover sensibly
does not want to be drawn into a
relationship while you are with
someone else.
What?s clear though is that your
relationship has probably run its
course. You?re together for the sake of
it. We change a lot in our teens and
neither of you are the same people of
five years ago.
Talk to your boyfriend about your
feelings and ask him whether he?s
happy with things as they are. If you
decide the spark has gone, my e-leaflet
on Ending A Relationship will help you
to do this in the least painful way.
Enjoy some single time again and
then, if the guy from work is still
around and you feel you?re ready,
contact him and you can take things
from there.

Dear Deidre
I WISH my son and grandson
would leave home, though I
feel like the worst mother in
the world for saying that.
My lad?s girlfriend got
pregnant when she was 16
and my son was 18.
She has mental health
problems and left after her
baby?s birth. It was tough for
my son but he?s a fine dad .
I am 59 and about to retire
and my husband is 62.
My son has low-paid work
so we?ve never asked him for
board money. We do their
washing, feed them and buy
my grandson?s school
uniform. He is now eight.
But it?s time for us to enjoy
our retirement and for my lad
to stand on his own two feet.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: I doubt
your son and grandson can
move out instantly but
putting the wheels in
motion would relieve some
of your emotional pressure.
Tell your boy you need
him to be working towards
living independently.

SIMPLE FOODS
ITALIAN SEA BASS
PARCELS
DAILY
Charlotte says:
(Serves four)
A RIDICULOUSLY easy
and nutritious dinner that
tastes sumptuous.
The sea bass is baked in
a foil parcel so it steams in
its own juices and keeps
all the flavour.
Perfect served with
couscous, new potatoes
or a crisp green salad.
YOU NEED:
4 frozen sea bass fillets
4 tbsp olive oil
2 lemons
4 garlic cloves, peeled and
crushed
4 tbsp finely chopped
fresh parsley
4 tbsp finely chopped
fresh basil
32 cherry tomatoes, on
the vine if possible
METHOD: Preheat the oven to 200C/fan
180C/Gas Mark 6.
Cut four pieces of foil, 4cm longer than
the fish fillets and triple the width.
Place a fillet in the centre of each piece
of foil and, on top of each, drizzle 1 tbsp
olive oil, the juice of � a lemon, 1 garlic
clove, � tbsp parsley, � tbsp basil and
eight cherry tomatoes.
Seal the parcels by folding the foil over
and scrunching it tight, leaving some air
above the fish to allow it to steam.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until the
fish is cooked through.
Cooking times may vary according to
how thick the fillets are. The thicker the
fillet, the longer the baking time.
Serve the fish sprinkled with the
remaining parsley and basil.

Here, interior designer FAYE
ROBINSON-HEY picks out six highsheen products to help you create a
high-impact home.
UPHOLSTERER Charlotte, from Crewe, is
married to Mike, 33, a warehouse worker. She is
mum to Leon, nine, and seven-year-old Josh ?
both from a previous relationship ? as well as
Nicky, two. She says:
When people ask me how I met my best mate,
Bekki, I say: ?She slept with my boyfriend
behind my back.? At first they laugh and think I?m
joking. But when they realise I?m being serious,
they look so confused.
Our five-year friendship is all thanks to my ex ? an
electrician called Richard who was a serial love rat.
When I first met him in a nightclub in October
2011, Richard was everything I was looking for ?
funny, charming and with a cheeky glint in his eye.
We soon started a relationship and two weeks
later he moved in with me and my sons. It was
lightning-fast but it seemed perfect.
Then, one month after he moved in, I
received a Facebook message from Bekki,
who was Richard?s ex and the mother of his
son Jake, who is now nine.
It read: ?You need to stop seeing
Richard. You?re breaking up a family, you
big-chinned freak!?
I could not believe this girl?s nerve.
Richard promised to have a word with
her and tell her to back off.
I didn?t reply to her spiteful
messages and after a couple of
months, she stopped sending them.
In July 2012, Richard and I flew
to Majorca for a family holiday with
our kids.

?I was devastated?
When we returned, Richard took Jake
back to Bekki?s and didn?t return home. I
was frantic with worry. Was he with her?
The next day he insisted he?d been
lying in bed with Jake and had just
drifted off.
I angrily asked him if he was cheating
on me with Bekki. He denied it but then told
me he didn?t want to be with me any more and
ended our nine-month relationship. I was
devastated.
I then found out Richard had moved back in with
Bekki. I was furious. All my ?paranoia? had been
completely justified.
Bekki had bided her time until she got the
chance to sleep with my man and steal him away.
Two weeks later, I was shocked to receive a call
from her. She said: ?I know you don?t want to speak
to me, but Rich has cheated on me. You?re the best
person in the world to talk to because we?ve both
been hurt by the same guy.?
My first instinct was to hang up. How dare she
think I would console her? She stole my man. But
she sounded so hurt, I kept listening.
She had found messages on Richard?s phone
from another girl. We chatted for two hours. The
next night, we went to the pub together.
My friends thought I was mad but we had tons in
common and although we bonded over our hatred
of Richard, we were also both young mums who
enjoyed letting our hair down every now and again.
When Mike and I got married in August 2014,
Bekki was my first choice for maid of honour.
I never thought I?d be happy to be cheated on,
but Richard?s two-timing introduced me to my
best friend. I wouldn?t have it any other way.

We had only broken up three months before

get back together. In that moment, I clicked
through all her pictures. I couldn?t even see why
he was going out with her.
A week later, I was at home by myself and was
a bit tipsy, so I sent her a mean message telling
her she was breaking up a family. I threw in
some insults too, but infuriatingly, she didn?t
take the bait. I must have sent six messages
and she didn?t reply to a single one.
After a few months went by, I decided to
make peace with her. I had my son to think
about and didn?t know how long she would be
in Richard?s life. Whenever I saw her while I was

HEARTBREAK LED TO A LASTING FRIENDSHIP
WORKING late, secretive calls and
feeling distant. These are a few of the
tell-tale signs that a partner may be
cheating. After weeks or maybe
months of denial, you finally
unearth the devastating truth
and naturally want answers.
The first question: Who is
to blame?
According to a recent
study by Cardiff Metropolitan
University, women tend to blame ?the
other woman?, while most men blame
their cheating wives.
Charlotte Prestwich, 32, knows that
feeling all too well.
When she found out Bekki Dyde, 27,
had slept with her boyfriend Richard
Clewes, 33, behind her back, she
thought she would hate her for ever.
But in a twist of events, the pair
became best friends after finding
solace in one another. Two years
later, Bekki was maid of honour at
Charlotte?s wedding to a new man.
Here, they share their extraordinary
story with GEORGETTE CULLEY and
ISOLDE WALTERS and explain why
women should stick together, not tear
one another apart.

I became best pals
with woman who
stole my boyfriend
(...AFTER HE CHEATED ON HER TOO)
picking Jake up or dropping him off at her
house, I was civil. But I never stopped thinking
about getting back with Richard.
He had been my first proper boyfriend and
even though he had broken my heart multiple
times with his wandering eye, I still believed he
would grow up and change.
I gritted my teeth when I heard he was going
on holiday to Spain with Charlotte.
The whole time they were gone, I couldn?t
help picturing Richard, Jake and me playing on
a beach and swimming in the sea on a proper
family holiday.
?Ripping off my clothes?
When he dropped Jake off after the trip, I
asked Richard if he fancied a drink.
This was my chance. I told him: ?You should
be with me. I love you, I?ve missed you and we
should be together. You know we should.?
Richard didn?t even let me finish my speech
before he pounced. Soon we were making out
like old times and he was ripping off my clothes.
I didn?t feel any guilt and Richard didn?t seem
to either. I kept telling myself I wasn?t in the
wrong ? Richard had been with me before he
was with Charlotte so I was just taking back
what was mine. But while I thought we were
getting back together for good, Richard clearly
had other plans. Three weeks later, he started
coming home late, smelling of alcohol while
insisting he had been working.
Then I spotted a text flash up on his phone. It
read: ?I can?t wait to see you, baby,? followed by
a long row of kisses.
Richard was a cheat through and through.
When I confronted him, he didn?t even bother
to deny it and left the same day.
In all my pain, I realised this was how
Charlotte must have felt when Richard left her
for me. I knew I had to apologise.
My hands shook as I dialled her number.
Would she hang up on me? Shout at me? Tell
me I deserved to be cheated on?
To my surprise, she accepted my apology.
She even said: ?I?m in love with a good man
now, Bekki, and you?ll find one too ? if you keep
away from Richard.?
Soon we were seeing each other every week.
Richard knew we were friends. I don?t think he
liked it but he never dared bring it up with me.
I learned an important lesson: Sometimes
you can be swept away with passion and think
that love conquers all.
But I now know that friendship can get
you through anything.

We all have them and they are
simply a part of the human form.
Although we?ve had big
breakthroughs, it?s still apparent we
have some way to go, particularly on
social media. Twitter regularly
censors our tweets because they
contain ?sensitive material?.
We are baffled that a pair of boobs,
in the name of life-saving awareness,
can come with a warning when people
can so easily be subjected to racist
abuse, rape threats and horrific videos
that don?t get taken down fast enough.
What message are we putting out
when we tell them the subject of
boobs is a sensitive matter?
It certainly doesn?t help in the fight
to get people talking about boobs
and ultimately checking them for
early signs of breast cancer.
Public uproar
Despite lodging complaints with
the social media giants, we are left
with censored tweets that people are
warned against.
We had similar issues with
Facebook when our most recent
campaign video depicting boobs,
including a mastectomy, was taken
down as it was deemed inappropriate.
After a bit of hassle the video was
restored. But we are not the only
breast cancer organisation that has
faced this battle.
In 2016, a Swedish cancer research
organisation had a pair of cartoon
boobs temporarily taken down.
In response, the cancer fund posted
a square version of boobs with an
open letter to Facebook which, after
some substantial sharing, was taken
seriously by the censor teams.
It seems that after a bit of public
uproar things can change.
Censorship challenges us to be
more creative. But pussyfooting
around a subject that can so easily
save lives is not OK.
Perhaps if we didn?t have so many
taboos we wouldn?t be seeing such
crazy teenage pregnancy rates, male
suicide and, in our case, death from
late diagnoses of breast cancer.
By not talking about it we change
nothing and achieve nothing.
It?s probably time Twitter got with
the programme. I hope you agree.
Just coppafeel and look
out for the following...

THE death of Abi Branning in

I?m sad that Lorna Fitzgerald,
who played Abi, has been written

thought that the character had

EastEnders is back on top form.

Mars and Saturn make you a mix of action and determination.
And at work you?re the one racing towards success. You feel a
relationship is going somewhere and uncertainty no longer
keeps you on edge. The relative most likely to draw luck into
your life is the one who knows most about league football.
Your mind is working faster and when you spy an unusual
opportunity at work you go for it, instead of spending so long
weighing it up. Impulsive Mars sets up an instant attraction
that can turn into a lasting love. If you?re already attached,
love that seemed one-sided is becoming a mutual passion.
Pluto, planet of the unexpected, sees money from the past
coming to light. Mars patrols your job chart and instead of
choosing the easy option, it?s the one that really tests you that
also brings success. But it?s the quiet words of affection that
could take a love relationship to the next level.
Now you show you believe in your talents without sounding
boastful, others will start to notice. If you?re ready for a new
romance, don?t ask or tell too much about past relationships.
Settled partners realise it?s the different opinions they have
that add spice and make the relationship interesting.
You may not see yourself as the artistic type but when it
comes to a makeover for your home, or yourself, Neptune
ensures you will be. If you?re single, your new love has a sense
of adventure and does the kind of job that fascinates you.
Luck travels north to celebrate an award or a prize.
You?ll have a surge of energy that drives you to pick up a halffinished project and complete it. It could make a difference to
your earning power. If you?re single, love that once promised
so much wants to try again. Couples in strong relationships
win prizes by showing how well they know each other.
From falling in love with a person you once disliked to a work
project that goes from failure to success, this is a day of big
surprises. With the moon only interested in serious relationships, be honest but tactful when a relative announces some
unusual wedding plans and asks for your true opinion.
At work, your blend of creative ideas and understanding of
costs will get you noticed by the right person. At home, you
can encourage a gifted but unsure relative to enter a talent
contest. But when it comes to romance, you just have to let
the doubt go and discover how wonderful passion can be.
The link between the moon and Pluto fuels ideas for making
extra money. At home, you agree on a budget and have the
determined attitude that ensures everyone keeps to it. The
moon of love helps you decide a partner?s true feelings and
you feel close. Single? You meet where jazz music fills the air.
Venus settles in your values chart. Showing you rate the love
you give as highly as the love you receive encourages a
partner to do the same. At home, you want to be certain you?re
getting the best deal, then you will make your move. Good
luck is hidden in an envelope that looks like a bill.
You?re ready to let your boldest ambitions show and these
may be different to what other people expect you to have. With
the sun in your sign you will achieve so much. If you start the
day single, read between the lines of a text to uncover deep
love feelings. Already involved? Romance can be revived.
Sharing success with pals makes it more precious, so say yes
to taking your place in a community project others will find
entertaining. At work, you come across as calm and ready for
promotion. However busy life gets, be sure a partner does not
feel neglected. Single? Your new love speaks four languages.

New boss . . . Alex Baldock
PHONE X
APPLE OF
DIXON?S i
APPLE?s iPhone X gave
revenues a boost at
DIXONS CARPHONE in the
run-up to Christmas.
The retailer?s mobile
sales in the UK and Ireland grew by around eight
per cent.
For the ten weeks to
January 6, total revenues
rose four per cent.
Chief executive Seb
James said: ?Our Boxing
Day sales did not quite
mirror the promise of
our very strong Black
Friday week, but we are
confident that we grew
market share in pretty
much every category.?
Mr James has led the
firm since it was created
by the merger of DIXONS
RETAIL and CARPHONE
WAREHOUSE in 2014.
But he is leaving to run
BOOTS and will be
replaced by SHOP DIRECT
boss Alex Baldock in April.
Nicholas Hyett, analyst at
HARGREAVES LANSDOWN,
said: ?The mobile market
is changing rapidly and
while initial signs are
good, with strong growth
in SIM-free handset sales,
margins are struggling.?
Pressure on margins led
the retailer to trim its full
year profits before tax
forecast from �5million
to �5million.
MIDLANDS
RENT HIGH
LANDLORDS in the East
Midlands are benefiting
from a surge in rents ?
while those in London are
still having to make do
with less, Homelet says.
The East Midlands saw
the highest rate of rental
price inflation in December, with rents 4.6 per
cent up on the year
before, the firm found.
Meanwhile, rents in the
South East were one per
cent lower year-on-year in
December 2017.
Homelet CEO Martin
Totty said: ?We continue
to see a very mixed picture regionally.?
On average, rents last
month across the UK rose
by 1.7 per cent.

NET YOOX
RICHEMONT has launched
a bid to take full control
of YOOX NET-A-PORTER,
the Italian online fashion
retailer.
The Swiss luxury group,
famous for its bangles and
watches, wants to increase
its 49 per cent stake in
the Milan-listed upmarket
retailer to at least 90 per
cent and acquire the 75
per cent of the voting
rights it does not own.
The bid values the whole
of Yoox Net-a-Porter at
more than 5.3billion euros
(�7billion).
Richemont plans to take
the online firm private but
the online group will continue to act as a separate
business.

OCADO LANDS
CANADA DEAL
Tuesday, January 23, 2018 ...............
KIDS? SALES TOT UP
ONLINE grocer OCADO has reached a
deal with Canadian retailer SOBEYS.
Ocado said the partnership, the
second recently after its tie-up with
French firm GROUPE CASINO, will
involve building an online grocery
business in Canada, where Sobeys
operates more than 1,500 stores.
The two firms plan to build a
warehouse in the Greater Toronto
area within the next two years.
Ocado?s shares went to the top of
the FTSE250 on the news, rising
more than 12 per cent.
PERSONALISED
shopping has helped boost
sales at nursery range
MAMAS & PAPAS.
They rose 2.7 per
cent in the six weeks
to January 13.
Personalised
shopping, where customers
make bespoke visits,
forms 18 per cent of
its UK trade, up from
ten per cent last year.
A new website also
helped a double-digit
growth in online sales.
Popular items included its Ocarro pushchair, Mia Furniture
range and Welcome to
the World clothes.
Its stores also offer
prenatal and postnatal
exercise classes.

JOBS TO
GO AT TESCO
TESCO is cutting 1,700 jobs in a bid
to simplify its operations.
People managers and compliance
managers from its large stores and
fulfilment centres, and customer experience managers face the axe.
But
the
UK?s
biggest supermarket is also creating 900 new roles
in
distribution
centres and stores
? making a net
loss of 800 jobs.
BRIT BOSSES
FULL OF HOPE
ALMOST nine in 10 UK CEOs are
optimistic about their firm?s growth
in the next year, says a PwC poll.
Three-year
confidence
is
even
higher, with 96 per cent of the 193
bosses expecting their
revenue to rise. This is
higher than the global
figure of 91 per cent.
PwC chairman Kevin
Ellis,

said:
?Robust
confidence
points to resilience in
uncertain times.?
CHIPS DOWN
FOR HOUSING
A RECORD shortage of bricklayers
and carpenters threatens the Government?s plans to build 300,000
new homes a year, the FEDERATION
OF MASTER BUILDERS has claimed.
Its poll of the construction industry?s smaller firms found 68 per cent
struggle to hire brickies and 63 per
cent have trouble finding chippies ?
the highest figures since 2008.
Plumbers, electricians, plasterers
and floorers are also lacking. The
FMB said: ?Who?ll build the homes
the Government is crying out for??

CHRISTMAS
revellers
helped REVOLUTION BARS
post a record set of festive trading figures.
The group, which was
last year the subject of a
takeover tussle between
rivals DELTIC and STONEGATE, said revenue for
the 26 weeks to December 30 rose 10.6 per cent
to
�.7million.
The
results
were
achieved
despite a backdrop of
?inclement weather?, the
company said.
Executive

LADBROKES CORAL nosedived yesterday
amid rumours that maximum bets on
high-stakes terminals will be cut to �
The Association of British Bookmakers
warned it would ruin the trade, cause 21,000
job losses and fail to tackle problem gambling.
A three-month consultation
on
fixed-odds
betting terminals (FOBTs),
which let punters bet up
to �0 in a single 20second flutter, ends today.
Ministers have proposed

that new Culture Secretary Matt Hancock, below,
thinks the machines are
a ?social blight? and will
pick the lowest cap.
A source said: ?His
attitude to them is very
negative
because
they
take money from reasonable, mature betting, like
on the horses.?
A crackdown on highly
lucrative FOBTs would hit
high street revenues and
profits. In early trading
yesterday, William Hill
was down 15 per

later moderated.

ramped
up
its
defence of a hostile bid
yesterday by revealing its
automotive sales will be
�5million by 2020.
That is more than a
third up on the �0million previously forecast
for the division, which
makes parts that transmit

The company revised
its forecasts thanks to
recent big contract wins.
It emphasised the success was down to heavy
investment in research

H
TEMPLEGATE?S TOP TIPS
DON?T be a Fool by missing a great bet in the 3.05
at Southwell. FOOLAAD (nap) was progressive last
season and picked up where he left off with a straightforward win over course and distance in a Class 4 last
month. He is up 6lb for that success and this is a hotter
race but he had plenty in the tank and can follow up.
LEAN ON PETE (3.40 Southwell, nb) is one to rely on.
He goes very well at this track and looked good
when winning over slightly shorter here last month. He
has been nudged up just 3lb for that and is nicely drawn.
SHROUGHMORE LASS (4.20 Leicester, treble) can
make it the lucky last. Lightly raced for a sevenyear-old, she ran well on her last start in a competitive
affair over two miles. She was second in three point-topoints so this step up to two and a half miles should suit.

The eight-year-old is set to
give Cheltenham?s Cleeve
Hurdle the heave-ho in
favour of Saturday?s Sky Bet
Chase at Town Moor.
And that news has sparked
a massive plunge on Nicky
Henderson?s Grade 1 winner
last seen chasing home Sam
Spinner in the Long Walk
Hurdle over Christmas.
Put in at 10s by some bookies for the Doncaster feature,
L?Ami Serge was soon cut to
9-2 favourite for his first run
over fences in over a year.
And Jacob reckons punters
are on the right track.
He said: ?I recently schooled
him over ten fences and he
jumped very well.
?He felt in great nick and
his coat looks excellent. His
confidence is sky high after
By TOM PEPPER
running over hurdles and the
ground at Doncaster should
be better than elsewhere.
?The race will suit him. It
will be a good gallop and I
can work him into the race.?
Another Henderson star
who will give this weekend?s
big Trials meeting at Cheltenham a miss is Whisper.
He had been expected to
line up in the Cotswold
Chase but Henderson doesn?t
want his star to get in a war
on bad ground with hot
favourite Bristol De Mai.
Henderson said: ?Whisper
doesn?t need to be running at
Cheltenham in that ground.
?The Grand National is
where we will be going.?
Dual Liverpool Hurdle
winner Whisper - second to
stablemate Might Bite in last
season?s Mildmay Novices
Chase - is 33-1 top-priced for
Aintree with William Hill.
RACING RESULTS ROUND-UP
nTOM PEPPER was hot stuff
with 5-2 winning nap Holly

That raised hopes
he could be a real force in the
game despite four back operations.
And Rose, who finished tied fifth
in the same event just three shots
ahead of Woods, admitted the top
players are just excited as golf fans
about the former world No 1?s return
to competitive action.
English ace Rose is also teeing it

And he will be fascinated to see
how Woods plays at a venue where
he was won EIGHT times.
Rose (below) said: ?It?s great that
Tiger is playing here, because it
ramps up the excitement a notch.
?It will be terrific to see him play
competitively again. There?s tons of
anticipation.
?The Hero seemed to go really
well for him and there was a real
buzz. That was the perfect ?soft?
return, a way to dip your toe in the
water ? but this week is for real.
?It?s a tougher, championship-style
golf course but one where we know
he has done really well in the past.
?So he will be able to measure
his game a little more accurately by
the end of the week.
?But from what I hear, the way
he?s swinging a club and hitting the
ball sounds very positive. He seems
to have all his speed back which
tells you a lot about someone?s
physical condition.
?Obviously we?ve been starved
of Tiger golf, not just for the
past year but for the past five
years really.
?All the players admire him
and what he?s done and we are

World No 6 Rose, 37, is kicking
himself after his streak of ten successive top-ten finishes ended with a
share of 22nd behind fellow Englishman Tommy Fleetwood at last week?s
Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
If he had kept his run going, he
would have arrived in San Diego

There were un-Djokovic-like groundSouth Korea?s Hyeon Chung grew up
idolising Djokovic and beat the stricken
six-time Australian champion at his own
game, 7-6 7-5 7-6, in a stunning display.
Only two months ago, Chung won the
inaugural NextGen Finals for players
aged 21 and under. Now he is mixing it
with the big boys.
This is his first Grand Slam quarterfinal, with every chance of going further.
Chung, nicknamed The Professor as
he wears glasses on court, said: ?When I
was young I was just trying to copy
Novak because he was my idol. I can?t
believe this. Dreams came true tonight.?
But while Chung?s future looks bright,
Djokovic?s must now be in serious doubt.
Neither the compression bandage on
his right arm nor the treatment he got
after losing the first-set tie-break were
enough to keep at bay the injury which
forced him out for six months.
Will he now have to take another
break? Djokovic, 30, said: ?I really don?t
know. I have to reassess everything with
my team, medical team, coaches everybody. Scan it, see what the situation is.?

In fact, the man at the other end of the
court was more Djokovic than he was.
As they traded blows in jaw-dropping
rallies, it was like seeing a reflection. But
man-in-the-mirror Chung was winning.
Whatever Djokovic was lacking, he
still fought like a champion and was
graceful and honest in defeat.
Djokovic said: ?Amazing performance.
He was a better player tonight. He
deserved to win, no question about it.
?Whenever he was in trouble, he came
up with some unbelievable shots.
?I felt the pain was not that high I
needed to stop the match, even though
it was obviously compromising my serve.
?I wanted to challenge him to earn it,
without me handing it to him. That?s
what he has done, so, well done.?

World No 97 Sandgren, whose mum
Lia cracked a rib celebrating one of his
earlier wins, said: ?I definitely had a
real pinch-me moment.
?Wow, this is hopefully real. If I wake
up now, I?m going to be real upset!?
Sandgren, previously better known for
his right-wing views than his tennis,
added: ?I don?t know if this is a dream
or not. Maybe guys aren?t sure what to
expect and don?t know how I go about
playing points.
?I am using that to my advantage and
I am just trying to ride the wave.?
All the drama relegated another routine win for Roger Federer to a footnote.
Federer beat Hungary?s Marton Fucsovics 6-4 7-6 6-2 and has not dropped a

JIMMY ARMFIELD 1935 - 2018
GREAT . . . Armfield
with World Cup
winners and (below)
serving his many
roles within football
By VIKKI
ORVICE
SUNSPORT reporter gives her personal
tribute to Jimmy Armfield, who died
yesterday aged 82.
STANDING in the hallway of his
modest bungalow in a leafy
street behind Blackpool?s South
Shore, I asked Jimmy Armfield
if I could see his 1966 World
Cup winner?s medal.
I assumed it would be tucked away
with the 43 blue felt caps on show
in a cabinet.
He looked taken aback: ?I didn?t
get one. Only the 11 who started did
back then.?
While the knighthood many felt he
deserved in addition to his OBE ?
the certificate hanging on the wall of
his hall ? eluded him, a campaign
by then-Sports Minister Richard
Caborn eventually ensured he and all
the other substitutes from every winning team back to the first World
Cup final in 1930 got their medals.
This, after all, was the man once
regarded as the best full-back in the
world. England captain, FA kingmaker, manager, esteemed broadcaster as well as a football writer.
Appreciated,
admired,
respected.
Who else could have persuaded Billy
Bremner to play Buttons in panto at
the City Varieties Music Hall in
December 1974 as part of a teambonding exercise having replaced
Brian Clough as Leeds boss after 44
turbulent days of The Damned United?
And turned around such a poisonous atmosphere at Elland Road?
Jimmy, by the way, even wrote the
script for the two-night showing of
?Cinderella?. But most of all Jimmy

was a true gentleman. No ego
despite the enormity of his achievements, he was never happier than
watching his beloved Blackpool FC
or playing the organ at his local
church, where he was also treasurer.
I first got to know him almost 11
years ago. Jimmy had been diagnosed with cancer shortly before my
own diagnosis.
Until then he had been THE MAN
WHO STOLE TONY CURRIE from my
own team Sheffield United when the
maverick midfielder was sold to
arch-rivals Leeds back in 1976.
More than 30 years later I would
find myself comparing notes on chemotherapy side-effects with Jimmy
and his wife Anne, a Blackpool
Tower of strength to him throughout.
Just weeks ago ? despite being seriously ill himself ? he still asked in a
phone call how my own treatment
was going. A gentleman to the end.
When he first returned to the airwaves I would bump into him at
matches where he was working for
the BBC as an expert summariser.
More than 30 years older than me,
I remember thinking, ?Well, if Jimmy
can still get to matches so can I?.
One long trip to the North-West
on the opening day of the 2010 season was particularly memorable.
In their first-ever Premier League
match on August 14, Blackpool beat
Wigan 4-0 at the DW Stadium.
Jimmy was sat behind me in the
press box but despite usually being
the consummate professional, even he
struggled to contain his emotions by
the fourth goal, standing to join in
the celebrations. The result made the

for a few hours ? for the first time
since opening their 1957-58 top-flight
campaign with a 3-0 win over Leeds.
Jimmy had made his Blackpool
bow at Portsmouth three years earlier
before helping them to finish second
in Division One in 1955-56 ? still
their best league campaign.
Then there was that voice. Rich,
warm and distinctive. Driving to
matches on winter afternoons with
the car radio on, just hearing a snippet of him made the world seem safe,
evoking all that is good about football.
Jimmy himself insisted in a documentary last year that he believed he
had lived and played at the best time.
A one-club man with Blackpool, he

skippered England before Bobby
Moore and was voted best right-back
at the 1962 World Cup in Chile where
England lost 3-1 to Brazil in the
quarter-finals.
Understudy to George Cohen in
1966 (hence the missing medal) he
went on to briefly manage Bolton and
Leeds, taking the latter to the 1975
European Cup final in Paris where
they lost 2-0 to Bayern Munich.
A new generation got to know him
through the radio but not before he
had also helped set up the PFA
coaching department and worked as
a technical consultant for the FA,
recommending Terry Venables as
England boss. But it was his modesty

? Sir Geoff Hurst
that always stood out. As Duncan
McKenzie, cast in the title role of
Cinders for that panto, said: ?He was
almost too nice to be a manager.
?Jimmy was like the nice neighbour that everyone wants next door.
?But he was also wily. I remember
Norman Hunter coming in once after
finding out he?d been dropped by
Jimmy and he was absolutely fuming.
?He stormed right into Jimmy?s
office and Jimmy was sitting there
with a cup of tea. He said, ?Good
morning Norman, how are the wife
and kids??. They had a chat about all
of that and after ten minutes I?m not
sure Norman could remember why
he?d gone in there in the first place!?
FOOTBALL greats lined up
to pay tribute to Blackpool
icon Jimmy Armfield, the
former England skipper and
Leeds and Bolton boss.
SIR BOBBY CHARLTON,
a squad-mate at the 1966
World Cup, said: ?He was
one of the most honest
and genuine gentlemen I
had the good fortune to
meet.
?It is still a privilege to
think I played for Manchester United in Jimmy?s
final match for Blackpool
in 1971.
?Although he didn?t play
in the 1966 finals, he was
never less than a positive
influence on the squad.
?I will miss seeing Mr
Blackpool around.?
England?s World Cup

SIR GEOFF HURST added:
?Jimmy was the established full-back prior to
the World Cup and then
George (Cohen) came in.
?Typical of Jimmy, he
always dealt with it over the
years with great dignity.?
EDDIE GRAY, who played
for Leeds under Armfield
in the 1975 European Cup
final, said: ?It wasn?t an
easy time for him to come
in at Leeds because the
team were getting older.
?But the way Jimmy
conducted himself at the
club was terrific.?
Current England boss
GARETH SOUTHGATE said:
?I first met Jimmy at Euro
96. He was a special football man and always had
time for you.
?I was always enthralled
by his commentaries on
the radio. He had strong
opinions but judged it just
right every time.?
How the
cap fits !
JIMMY ARMFIELD once
famously got one over
Howard Wilkinson ? a
fellow Leeds boss.
Wilkinson, under fire as
Sunderland chief in 2002,
was fuming at criticism
and asked a group of
reporters: ?What do you
lot know anyway? How
many caps have you won??
Sitting near the back of
the room, Armfield, a
national newspaper journalist as well as a BBC 5
Live
co-commentator,
responded:
?Forty-three
actually, Howard.?
Even Wilkinson could
not help but laugh.
Jimmy was just
terrific at Leeds

?It does feel like we are a Premier
their high line.
Johnson, 36, hopes to become the top
flight?s youngest manager by leading
Bristol City to promotion from the
Championship.
But first he must plot the downfall of
Pep Guardiola?s mighty Manchester City
tonight to land his Robins a Carabao
Cup final trip to Wembley.
And Johnson will never forget talking
coaching tactics with the ex-Barcelona
and Bayern Munich super-boss.
Pep was seen on TV giving his
young rival words of encouragement
after Sergio Aguero?s injury-time winner
had given the Premier League leaders a
2-1 win in the semi-final first leg.
Johnson revealed: ?I also had a
good 20 minutes or more with him after
the game and enjoyed his company
immensely.
?He?s very enthusiastic, very bright
and really took a keen interest in us,
the club and the staff, which was nice.
?He was very knowledgeable on
Bristol City, had done his research on
us, as you would expect, on the way we
play and the way we use certain things
to our advantage.
?It was dreamland for me to be able
to share 20 minutes with Guardiola in
the semi-final of the League Cup.
?As it was effectively half-time in the
tie, we couldn?t give away any secrets.
But the chat was huge for me personally and will help us going forward.
?We scored a good goal against them
and nearly scored another from a
?And that was one of the funny things
me and Pep shared because I told him
had we scored from that, I would have
retired there and then!
?We were having a good laugh about
it and I told him, ?Watch out next time
? we will have a new one for you?.?
Pep racked up three La Liga
titles and tasted Champions
League
glory
twice
at
Barcelona. The Spaniard
also led Bayern to three
Bundesliga crowns.
And Johnson said:
?Any ideas shared with
a man like that, as
well as sharing tactical
battles
against
him, you can?t help
but learn from it.
?Whether
we
had
won, lost or drawn on 7.45pm, live on
the night, it was a great
experience for me and my
players.?
The Robins have beaten FOUR
Premier League sides to reach the last
four ? Watford, Stoke, Crystal Palace
and Manchester United.
But it is their ties with the two Manchester clubs which have really whetted
Johnson?s appetite to reach the top.
He added: ?These games have got my
adrenalin going even more to manage
in the Premier League.
?For me, dealing with the pressures of
League club in training, it really does.
?I never had the opportunity to
play in the Premier League and I
think I?m a better manager than I was
a footballer.
?It?s a burning ambition of mine to
get there and this club is set up for it.
?I will do everything I can to try
to fast-track the Bristol City
project ? and the players are
doing that too.
?That?s why I enjoy coming to work every day
because I?m learning and
I?m learning with good
people.?

Kev signs
new deal
By MARTIN BLACKBURN
KEVIN DE BRUYNE has
signed a new five-year
deal with Manchester City
? and been earmarked as
a future captain.
The Belgian put pen to
paper on the �0,000-aweek contract that will
keep him at the Etihad
until summer 2023.
And during negotiations,
the midfield genius was
told by boss Pep Guardiola he is viewed as a
possible skipper.
KDB, 26, said: ?I feel
very honoured and blessed
that I can go on for the
next 5 years here.
?Hopefully, there?ll be
some good times.?
SunSport revealed yesterday the final details of
the deal had been agreed
and he signed on the
dotted line last night.
His wages could even
top �0,000 per week if
City win some silverware.
KDB is the fourth player
to sign a new contract at
the Etihad following deals
for Fernandinho, Nicolas
Otamendi and David Silva.
City?s commitment to
the players who have got
them to the top of the
table is one of the
reasons why they stopped
pursuing Alexis Sanchez.
De Bruyne added: ?At
the moment we are one of
the best clubs in the world.
?The way this club is
working as a unit is unbelievable. I?ve never witnessed it anywhere else.
?I feel very happy here
and I wanted to stay.
?Hopefully, at the end of
the season we can celebrate with a few titles.?

But the ex-Manchester

to want reassurances of
regular football before he

Chelsea star Eden Hazard claims his team will
go for Arsenal?s throats in
their Carabao Cup semifinal second leg tomorrow.
The Blues drew 0-0 in

Deeney, 29, has scored just three goals in a

The Brummie is also having sessions with a
sports psychologist to try to sort out his loss
of form and confidence.
West Brom and Newcastle are keeping a

the striker.
But Baggies chief Alan Pardew would need
to raise cash from the sale of Jonny Evans to
raise the �million Watford will demand.
And the Magpies are still in disarray after

Following a blistering start to the season
that saw them win four and draw three of
their opening eight games, Watford have taken
just five points from their last 11 games and
have slumped to four points off the drop zone.
Gracia knows he needs to revitalise his

But he also realises a fully-focused Deeney

Alexis leads new dawn
ALEXIS SANCHEZ has shaken up
plenty of defences over the years
? now he?s done the same to
the entire transfer system as we
know it.
Forget the whys and wherefores
of his move to Old Trafford ahead
of the Etihad. Ignore the rights and
wrongs of whether or not he had
given his word to Manchester City.
In years to come we will look
back on his transfer to Manchester
United as a ground-breaker ? one
I feel will become the norm.
Namely that more and more
world-class stars will run down
their contracts and move for
nothing or, at best, a fraction of
their real worth in the closing
months of their deals.
We all know players hold all
the power these days and it
makes total financial sense to
them ? and the buying club.
Of course you will still get the
odd astronomical transfer but
they will be very much the
exception.
Just look at the logic involved.
A player worth, say, �million
with 18 months left can move for
nothing at the end of that time.
He can then pocket a signing-on
fee upwards of �m, on top of
sky-high wages ? money that would
have gone to the selling club in a
fee otherwise.
And if, as in Sanchez?s case, you
DO move in the closing months
before your contract is up, then the
salary reflects that.
The buyers pay for the privilege,
knowing they?re still getting you
cheaper than if there was a long
time left on your terms.
If you?re someone like Paul
Pogba, earning upwards of �0,000
a week, it actually works in your
favour in the long term NOT to sign
another one.
It?s not as if they?re struggling to
make ends meet. These players are
multi-millionaires already.
It just makes more sense to sit
tight and pick up even more when
your contract is up or, at the very
least, in its closing stages.
All it takes is a signed commitment to buy from one side and a
similar agreement to join as a free
agent from the player on the other.
That?s something which can easily
be arranged.
The only gamble for the player is
avoiding serious injury between
times.
But they earn such huge money,
they are already so well off, that
it?s a risk worth taking. Arsenal

That save puffed him up, giving
him confidence to dart off his
line to catch corners or leave his
area to head away the danger.
It brought a whole new
meaning to the phrase sweeperkeeper.
Klopp sent for reinforcements,
with Adam Lallana replacing
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain when
the midfielder ran out of puff.
He was so subdued out there.
Carvalhal had already made
his first change, a progressive
one, when Tom Carroll came on
for Nathan Dyer.
Whatever Swansea supporters
made of this strange appointment to replace Paul Clement,
he is afraid of nobody.
The players, lacking self-belief
by the time Clement got the
bullet after they were smashed
all over the park by Everton in
December, have responded.
Finally, they are up for a
fight.
They survived the odd secondhalf scare, including Firmino?s
injury-time header that cannoned off the base of the post.
Lallana reacted but his effort
was somehow deflected away for
a corner.
Sometimes it goes that way,
with too many players struggling
to find the magic touch.
When that happens, the 4-3
starts to feel like a fluke.

GRIN THE MONEY . . .
Sanchez move made sense
have become something of the
unwilling flag-bearers of how it?s
going to go, with Mesut Ozil well
down that road already.
But in the end it?s something
which will see all buying clubs
benefit. They will save a fortune on
transfers, while players and agents
will coin it.
The sellers will miss out but
they?ll offset that with a similar
deal for someone else.
I know Paris Saint-Germain paid
silly money to sign Neymar but
there aren?t many PSGs out there.
Deals like that will be seen less
and less over the years, while Sanchez-type transfers will increase.
Mark my words, there will be a
complete shake-up of the transfer
system as we know it.
Alexis is merely the tip of the
iceberg. This is the dawn of a
whole new age.

Some of the game?s legends have

So for me to get this recognition
is fantastic. I didn?t win too much as

Bob Wilson and his Willow Foundation, who organise the event, do
unbelievable work with seriously ill

general manager Michael

But hopes of a quick
deal have been frustrated
by the Bundesliga club?s
refusal to lower the

Dortmund have hinted
they may even wait until
the summer to cash in on
28-year-old Aubameyang.
But Arsenal remain confident a deal can be done
this month ? even with a
club-record fee.
Aubameyang returned to

He remains keen on a

THE TRANSFER THAT

History not

Alexis deal
By NEIL
CUSTIS
ALEXIS SANCHEZ has hit
back at those calling him a
mercenary
for
joining
Manchester United.
The Chilean superstar claims
it was about the history of
United and the fact they
showed how much they wanted
him that made him reject
the blue side of the city for
the red.
And he told those who have
criticised him for the move,
including ex-Gunner Martin
Keown, that they do not
know what they are
talking about.
Talking on social
media, Sanchez, 29,
said:

Sanchez (right) ? who has been
handed the iconic No 7 shirt at Old
Trafford ? also revealed he had a
conversation with Thierry Henry to
prove not all the former Arsenal
greats were against him.
Henry quit Arsenal to join Barcelona in 2007 and went on to win
the Champions League with them.
He clearly thought it was a step
up and so does Sanchez as he
swaps the Emirates for Old Trafford.
He said: ?I remember a conversation I had with Henry, a historic
Arsenal player, who changed club for
the same reason ? today is my turn.?
Keown clearly did not agree it
was about ambition, but purely
money as Sanchez turned his back
on league leaders Manchester City
and agreed a contract which will be

?But he probably thought he will
not get a better offer if he waits
until the summer, so he might as
well take the best deal on offer
now. It has been all about the
money.?
Not according to Sanchez. Yesterday he was at pains to emphasise
that it was the draw of one of the
world?s biggest clubs, Jose Mourinho
and the Portuguese?s desire to sign
him that won him over.
Sanchez said: ?The chance to play
in this historic stadium and to work

?Alexis Sanchez is here! He?s hungry to win all
the trophies, Premier League, Champions
League . . . United fans, enjoy Alexis Sanchez.?
SunSport was first to reveal United?s interest in
Sanchez last September (below) after a �million
offer from Manchester City had been rejected in
the summer.
It seemed the Etihad would still be his
destination but United
swooped to land the
29-year-old.
Sanchez
added:
?Since I was a young
lad I?ve always said
my dream was to play
for United and I?m
not just saying that
because I?m here.
?I am thrilled to be
joining the biggest
club in the world. The
chance to play in this
historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho
was something I could not turn down.?
Sanchez has signed a 4-year deal to the end
of the 2021-22 season on an incredible �5,000
a week as part of a swap deal with Henrikh
Mkhitaryan going the other way to Arsenal.
Red Devils chief Mourinho said: ?Alexis is one
of the best attacking players in the world.
?He?ll bring his ambition, drive and personality,
qualities that make a Manchester United player
and a player that makes the team stronger.?
SHIRT
STORY
HERE is a selection of players to have worn the iconic Man Utd No 7 shirt. Sanchez will look to
end its troubled recent history after Memphis Depay and Angel Di Maria flopped under its weight.
Note: Before players were assigned shirt numbers, the No 7 could have been worn by multiple players in the same season.

things that attracted me to come
here, along with the manager, who
is a person who won everything in
Italy, the same as he did in Spain.
He?s a manager who likes to win.
?I?ve always been motivated by
this club, by their red colours,
which always stood out for me.
?I?m genuinely saying this from
the heart when I tell you that this
is like a dream come true for me,
playing for Manchester United.
?It makes me feel really happy
and I?m so pleased to be here at
the Theatre of Dreams.?
Sanchez has revealed that a
past conversation with former Red
Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson
helped to keep the idea of playing
for United in his mind ? even
when he was turning out for
Arsenal. He said: ?I always said as
a kid that I?d like to play for
United and I once spoke to Sir
Alex Ferguson about it.
?We chatted for around 20 minutes. And I told him that my dream
was to come here to United.
?It really is a massive club, very
powerful.
?When I got the opportunity to
come here, I looked at the badge
and my hairs just stood up on end
because it?s the biggest club in
England.?
Their next port of call will be
League Two Yeovil Town this
Friday where Sanchez could make
his United bow in the FA Cup
fourth round.
Then it is the small matter of a
trip to Wembley to face Tottenham
next Wednesday ? what a welcome
that promises to be.

ARSENE WENGER did not quite compare and
contrast Henrikh Mkhitaryan with Alexis
Sanchez ? then again, he did not need to.
By highlighting the qualities of Arsenal?s new
signing, Wenger made it clear why he feels he is
getting the better of the extraordinary exchange
deal with Manchester United.
And he believes the articulate team player he
has brought in will be a more than adequate
replacement for a disruptive loner.
Boss Wenger explained: ?We?re going into
