largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history”.
The US ejected 60 as

EXCLUSIVE:
By EMMA PIETRAS
TRANS newlyweds Hannah
Winterbourne and Jake Graf
tied the knot with a romantic white wedding — saying:
“We’re just like any other
bride and groom.”
Captain Hannah, who served
her first few years in the Army
as a man, wed Jake, who used
to be woman, in a ceremony
that she described as “like a
Disney movie”.
Hannah, 31, who will now be
living with Jake in Army married
quarters near her barracks, added:
“To me, I’m just another girl married to another guy. As you transition and meet someone new you
kind of forget about your past.”
Actor Jake, 40, said: “We’re
just the same as everyone
else, with our flaws and
ups and downs — but a
little bit different.”
Hannah
and
Jake
revealed they first got
together because of a
Sun front-page story in
January 2015 telling of
her courageous decision
to become a woman
while still on Army
active service.
Jake said: “I saw Hannah
in The Sun and thought she
was beautiful. She was on the front
cover so it was hard to miss her!”
He told a mutual friend named
Rebecca that he thought Hannah
looked cute.
Jake said: “A week later I saw
Rebecca again and she said, ‘I spoke
to Captain Winterbourne and she
thinks you’re quite cute too!’ So it
really was school playground stuff.”
The pair made contact on Facebook and swapped messages and
finally phone numbers.
Jake, who was in Eddie Redmayne
movie The Danish Girl, said: “In our
first phone conversation I asked, ‘Do
you think you’d like to have kids
because I really want them?’
“It seemed like the right thing to
do before we even met. I like to get
things out in the open quite early.
She said, ‘I’m certainly not adverse
to kids.’ Had she said, ‘No, I hate
kids’, that would have been that.”
Hannah said: “I thought, ‘Wow
this has got serious very quickly’.
But I quite admired it because Jake
wanted something serious. He didn’t
want a fling.
“He wasn’t asking me to have kids
with him there and then as long as
I was happy to have them in future.”
She admitted she was “absolutely
terrified” ahead of their first meeting on London’s South Bank —
because she had never had a boyfriend, let alone been on a date.
But the fact that Jake was also
trans made things easier.
Hannah, who is in the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers, said: “I
didn’t have to explain myself. He
knew how to deal with it. I’ve got a
low voice but he understood.
“All that unsaid stuff made me
relax. Before then, the idea of opening myself up to someone was
really difficult.
“I was really insecure
about dating. But I decided
now was the time to
push myself out there
and see if there was a
person out there who
could love me.
“And I hit the jackpot first time.”
For Friday’s wedding
at Chelsea Town Hall
she wore a strapless
figure-hugging dress.
Hannah said: “Growing
up, I’d watch Disney films
and there would always be a beautiful woman in a beautiful gown.
“You’d always look at feminine
things and wish it could be you but
I wasn’t able to express it.
“There are not many more things
that are feminine than a bride in a
beautiful wedding dress.
“I never thought when I was
young it could happen to me. It was
a pipe dream. Until I met Jake, I
never realised it was a goal I could
achieve. It’s not sunk in yet.”
Jake added: “I never thought any

partial to a bit of a cry anyway.”
The couple, patrons of transgender
children’s charity Mermaids, got

“By and large we pass through life
without the abuse and harassment

Both prefer not to reveal their
previous names. He said: “We’re try-

Jake, who stars alongside Anna
Friel in the upcoming ITV series
Butterfly, admits he went through
hell growing up.
He said: “I used to pray every
night I’d wake up a boy. It made
me very angry and I cut myself off.”
But at the age of 25 he met a
trans man while visiting New York
and realised there was hope.

rather than later. I’ve definitely got

friends have got kids now. We’ll

JEREMY Corbyn apologised
to the Jewish community
yesterday as hundreds protested outside Parliament

In a searing attack, she also

Just an hour before the unprecedented protest, the Labour leader
had insisted he was a “militant

sorry for “wrongly questioning”
the removal of an anti-Jewish
mural in East London in 2012.

He said: “The meanstested system is creaking.

than what it is spent on.”
He told the Commons
Health Committee that
those needing care are
“terrified” and likened
paying for it to going in
a shop “with no prices”.
He said: “Although you
know what the price is
per week or per month
you don’t know how long
you’re going to have to
go on paying it.”
It led to a growing
sense of unfairness as
people go for the cheapest option unless they are
very wealthy, he added.

He had joined the “Labour Party

THE
SAYS
Backing Britain
THE British-led mass global expulsion of
Russian spies is an unprecedented, hugely
powerful action against Putin’s rogue state.
The credit lies with Theresa May and
Boris Johnson, whether their critics like
it or not. They have galvanised our allies
against a regime that violates international law and all norms of behaviour
with vicious force and thuggish arrogance.
It took the Salisbury outrage to at last
wake the civilised world — and a Prime
Minister who did not hesitate to rouse it.
So much for Remoaners carping about
“little” Britain retreating into impotent
isolation. Like so many other Brexit
“warnings”, it was self-serving rubbish.
If Putin was testing our strength and
alliances since the vote, well, he has his
answer. We are the world’s sixth largest
economy and a global security power.
He cannot unleash a chemical weapon
on our soil unpunished. Our allies, from
the US to Ukraine, have recognised that.
We must never forget their solidarity.
Racist Labour
IT is a shaming sight for Jeremy Corbyn
and his rancid extremists: hundreds of
Jews marching alongside moderate Labour
MPs against their own party’s racism.
And, all of a sudden, Corbyn’s sorry.
But he still doesn’t get it — pathetically
arguing that left-wing Jew-hatred is
harder to spot than the far-right’s.
What drivel. It’s the same thing.
And how sincere was his apology?
Was he sorry yesterday morning when
he was STILL a member of yet another
Facebook group rife with anti-Semitic
posts? Or back when he defended that
sickening mural? Or when he befriended
Arab extremists bent on killing Jews?
If he now accepts Labour has an antiSemitism problem, and he should know,
is he also sorry he garlanded Shami
Chakrabarti with a peerage after she
hastily whitewashed his party over it?
The hard-Left attracts bigots who
think Jew-hatred is no big deal. A few
Corbynistas even chose to demonstrate
AGAINST the anti-Semitism protest. It
is appalling they have engulfed Labour.
The stench is rank.
Do Leave off
THE hypocrisy of the Remain ultras’
obsession with finding illegal spending in
the Leave campaign is off the dial.
Not only did the Government spend
£9million urging a Remain vote before
the campaign, but its total spending
vastly outstripped Leave’s.

upset the post-Brexit British passport, returning to its iconic black-blue
colour, has been awarded to Gemalto.
The Franco-Dutch firm prevailed over
De La Rue and a German rival.
But it is surely right the Home Office
awarded the contract after a “blind
tender”, where the identity of each firm
was concealed.
Gemalto won because its bid was
deemed superior on technical and cost
grounds, saving the taxpayer £12million
a year over the next decade.
You can employ almost 500 NHS
nurses for £12million. That’s why this
decision amounts not to “betrayal” but
common sense.
Trying to whip up discontent, De La
Rue dubbed the Government’s choice
“shocking”. Yet the company itself makes
passports for dozens of other countries,
so is no stranger to the concept of
passports being made abroad.
While Gemalto may produce the body
of new UK passports outside Britain, the
Home Office has confirmed all technical
aspects of the document, including the
personalised data chips, must be made
here, so there are no security risks.
There is legitimate concern over job
losses in De La Rue’s Gateshead factory,
which employs 600 people.
But only around a sixth work in the
passport
division,
and
they
make
documents for a range of countries.
“I’d like to ask Theresa May or
Amber Rudd to come to my factory and
explain to our dedicated workforce why
this is a sensible decision to offshore the
manufacture of a British icon,” said De
La Rue boss Martin Sutherland.
Perhaps Sutherland should explain
why, in losing a £490million contract,
his
firm
was
so
comprehensively
trounced on price by Gemalto.
It strikes me De La Rue, thinking the
contract was in the bag because the
Government would buy British by
default, jacked up its price.
It is right ministers and civil servants
stuck to the rules and put taxpayer
value first and foremost.
De La Rue is entitled to appeal and, if
it wins the right to resubmit its bid, and
can
beat
Gemalto,
perhaps
the
Government
might
reconsider.
Or
maybe, if De La Rue can make savings, the contract could be split
between two firms.
That would be a good demonstration
of ongoing competition, the kind of
efficiency-boosting arrangement that
is so often woefully absent when it
comes to public procurement.
Hailing from the Channel Islands,
De La Rue has a history that is itself
an amalgam of French and British
influences.
Having
first
published
Guernsey newspaper Le Miroir Politique
in 1813, Thomas de la Rue set up as a
London printer in 1821 and first made
British passports during World War One.
The English language, too, is an
Anglo-French hodgepodge, with around
a third of our words hailing from
France.
From menus to cafes, chauffeurs to
clichés, French influence is all around
us. Even the word “passport” has
French roots.
The British people, in fact, while having chosen to be self-governing in our
historic Brexit vote, remain proud of the
countless overseas influences that make
up modern Britain.
We like German cars and French
footballers — but we also recognise the
importance of value for money.
So congratulations, Gemalto — felicitations! And let the world recognise that
Britain is open for business.

often considered quitting
acting because he “just
hated it” for years.
The Love Actually star,
68, said: “I thought of
quitting, if not daily, then
weekly. I was so unhappy
— I just hated it.
“It’s not unpleasant all
the time, and you work
with great people and I
am proud of some of the
things I’ve done.
“You get a degree of
satisfaction
when
it’s
over, but the actual process is never satisfactory.”
He kept going because
he “couldn’t think of anything else to do”. He
said: “I flunked school —
not that that would prevent you from doing anything in life, but I didn’t
have any other ideas.”
Nighy also told Radio
Times he avoids watching
himself on screen, saying
it’s “bloody awful”.

TV STATUES ON EDGE

£42k for
autism
scout, 11
STATUES stand on top of
ITV yesterday, representing the UK weekly toll of
84 male suicide victims.
This Morning’s Phillip
Schofield and Holly Willoughby helped highlight
the Project 84 campaign
at their London studio.
By NICK PISA
AN autistic boy scout
with a spoons phobia has
won £42,000 compensation from the organisation
in a discrimination case.
Leaders banned Ben
Gleeson, 11, from camps
and other activities unless
he had one-to-one supervision. It came after he
quit an egg and spoon
race because of his fear.
Mum
Beverly
complained the heavy oversight
was
unnecessary
and left Ben excluded.
She said: “He didn’t
have this level of supervision at school.”
Ben’s family sued the
Scout Association and it
settled out of court.
The
10th
Harpenden
group in Herts disputed a
number of claims.
But the Association said
the handling of the case
was
“completely
unacceptable” and said: “We
are very sorry.”
It will now train all
volunteers
on
working
with kids with developmental disabilities.

POP star Will Young is

Young, who won Pop

careless driving in the

She has now

complete with an
emotional video.
MY TEAM: Stuart Pink,
IT wasn’t long ago JENNIFER
LAWRENCE was considered
the golden girl of Hollywood.
But I understand the Oscarwinning actress is now on the
brink of being considered a
risk by major studios as she
has not had a non-franchise hit
for five years.
Her latest film, spy thriller
Red Sparrow, made just
£5million in its first month on
release in the UK.
And it comes after a string of
other financial and critical
failures including Mother!,
Passengers, Joy and Serena.
A movie insider
revealed:
“Hollywood
has realised
people don’t
go and see
‘the new
Jennifer
Lawrence
film’ just
because she’s
in it.
“People used to
do that with the likes of
JULIA ROBERTS or SANDRA
BULLOCK at the height of their
careers, as people do for WILL
SMITH and THE ROCK films at
the moment.
“Her Hunger Games and XMen franchise movies have
done brilliantly, but it’s the
other films – which she is the
selling point for – which have
failed to create a spark with the
paying public.
“Casting her as the lead in
the hopes it will make a movie a
success is a real risk now.”
Her last non-franchise
success was American Hustle
back in 2013.
She could do with a bit of
hustling now, too.

LIAM KILLERS IT

IBIZA Weekender
star CHYNA
ELLIS quit the ITV2 hit
this month.
But that hasn’t
stopped her dishing
out some secrets
about its future.
In an exclusive

Love Island star said:
“I’ve heard rumours it’s
not going to be in Ibiza
any more. I don’t know
where it would be, but
it’ll be a party place.
“I would definitely go

Chyna is going to

LIAM GALLAGHER may have enjoyed a few too
many caipirinhas in Brazil on Sunday.
Liam, inset, gave THE KILLERS frontman
BRANDON FLOWERS the shock of his life
when he invaded the stage midway
through their tune All These
Things That I’ve Done during
their Lollapalooza set.
A source said: “He gave
Brandon quite a fright as
the band had dealt with a
real stage invader
earlier, who had to be
escorted off by security.
“He genuinely had no
clue Liam was going to
appear.”
As the pair stood on stage,
Brandon’s shock turned to awe as
he addressed the crowds with: “Liam
f***ing Gallagher!”
Still, he didn’t offer Liam a microphone.

DANCER TO REIN IN HIS LATE NIGHTS
BRENDAN COLE better get used to

The axed Strictly star’s orders come two
weeks after The Sun reported his marriage was under strain following his regular drinks with female dancers on tour.
The final straw for Zoe came this
month when Brendan insisted on partying
with golfer Carly Booth at a showbiz bash
just 18 hours after the birth of son Dante.
At his All Night Long show in Bromley,
South London, Brendan said: “I had to

course, but it’s been a hard
couple of weeks. Sleepless
nights take their toll.”
A source said: “Brendan
knows he needs to rein in his
late nights and Zoe clearly
has got through to him.”
The Sun told how Brendan
had left Zoe to attend the TRIC
telly and radio awards at London’s
Grosvenor House just hours after
welcoming a little brother for their first
child, daughter Aurelia, five.
Brendan has landed his first gig since
his Strictly contract wasn’t renewed in
January — a place in USAIN
BOLT’s World X1 to play England
at the Soccer Aid For Unicef
match at Old Trafford in June.
He said: “For years, I have
been a massive fan of the
match. To be able to finally
announce I will be swapping
my dancing shoes for football
boots feels incredible.
“What’s
bigger
than
the
nation’s love of dancing? The
nation’s love of the beautiful game.
I’m aiming for tens across the board.”
His teammates will be hoping hot-head
Brendan can keep his cool on the pitch
better than he did on the dancefloor.
PETE’S TOUGH ROLE
PETER ANDRE wouldn’t lose his
temper even if somebody nicked
his Iceland discount card.
That’s why former Hollyoaks
bad boy JAMIE LOMAS is
teaching him how to be mean for
a new film role.
Jamie, runner-up in last year’s
I’m A Celeb, has been driving all
the way from Manchester to
Pete’s Sussex home for the
lessons. A source said: “Jamie’s
been secretly tutoring him for
the past six months.
“Pete hasn’t been able to
reveal too much about the movie
script but the character is
absolutely nothing like him.”
The director is the man
behind films including chiller
Hellraiser III. Sounds like Peter

A grant of £154,000

VICTIMS of black cab

a

A ruling in the landmark action will be issued

Ex-cabbie Worboys, 60,

The lawyer said: “There will

Daniels, 39, was sent a cease

lawyer Michael Cohen yesterday. But she reiterated she
had unprotected sex aged 27
with Trump, then 60, in 2006.
She had signed a nondisclosure agreement and was
paid £93,000 to keep quiet,
and now faces a £14million

In her interview, seen by 23

of spanking Trump on

She also said she was

much red tape for event organisers and

counter-extremism Prevent strategy.
The report said: “Universities must be
places where open debate (within the
law) can take place so students can
develop their own opinions on unpopular,
controversial or provocative ideas.”
The study comes after several guests
were prevented from speaking. Tory
Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg was recently
involved in a scuffle with
protesters at the University of the West of
England in Bristol.
The report said “intimidation
is
deplorable”,
adding police and university disciplinary bodies
should take action if free
speech is threatened.
MPs also called for the
Charity
Commission,
which oversees student
unions,
to
review
its
“restrictive” guidance.
Committee chairwoman
Harriet
Harman
said:
“There is a problem of
inhibition of free speech.”
Chris Hale, of Universities UK, said: “Universities are absolutely committed to promoting and
securing free speech.”

Sophie, who works at a

complaint last Friday.
She said: “I was horrified. I’m a 34C cup and
was
wearing

It added: “Not only can
they wreak havoc on rivers, seas and countryside,

Post-Brexit changes to

But the force yesterday
passed the inquiry to cold
case detectives.
Suffolk Police said: “The
records relied upon are not
comprehensive. Investigative
inquiries
identified
the
landfill site areas where
Corrie was most likely to
be. This does not rule out
the possibility of him being
elsewhere within that site or
at another landfill site.”
Det Supt Katie Elliott
added: “There is one other
site where we know the
body was possibly taken.
“But the area we searched
is most likely to be where
he is.” It means Corrie’s
remains could be lost forever under 10,000 tons of
rubbish at Milton, Cambs.
Officers believe no third

BASQUES, BABES A
EXCLUSIVE by
GEORGETTE CULLEY
TUCKED away in a corner in
a North London pub, a
group of women huddle
around a bottle of prosecco.
They giggle as they show each
other adorable pictures of their
children and gush about their highearning husbands.
With their polished nails, glossy hair
and designer clothes, they look like any
other group of yummy mummies on a
night away from their little darlings.
But looks can be deceiving. An hour
later, they peel off their coats to reveal
suspenders, stockings . . . and a great
deal of themselves.
Now they are at a secret female-only
sex party in a Georgian townhouse, just
a stone’s throw from Regent’s Park —
and I have joined them in the guise of
a shy newbie.
The sound of champagne corks and
corsets popping fills the room, and
wedding rings glint in the candlelight.
Welcome to Her Other Self — a
monthly event thrown by private members’ club Skirt, which claims to cater
for beautiful women only.
On this evening’s evidence this seems
true — nearly everyone has a gymhoned, size 10 frame and they are aged
between 28 and 40.
One of them jokes: “We are the Desperate House-Bis,” before plumping up
her cleavage and winking at her friend.
“We all do it but we don’t talk about it.”
Behind her, a naked blonde lies on a
white fur rug, a slice of lime between
her red lips, offering herself to the
room like a sacrificial animal.
A brunette gently pours tequila over
her breasts and thighs. A group of
women surround her, like a pack of
hyenas, arching their backs as they lick
tequila off her body and nibble greedily
at her. She writhes in pleasure.
‘My husband thinks I
am at a spa weekend’
“Release your alter ego,” the brunette
tells her, “Find your inner goddess.”
I am only here for research — no one
asks me what I do for a living — but
with the women all looking amazing,
for a moment, I consider getting
involved in the action.
On the periphery a woman is watching the seductive scene unfold while
nervously twisting the key tied around
her wrist — a bracelet given to new
members on arrival to let “regulars”
know it is their first time.
Behind them, another group of women
are playing spin the bottle and reading
erotic poetry.
The
club,
staffed
exclusively
by
women, does wonders for your confidence. Several women compliment me
on my corset and tell me they admire
my boobs. One says I look “edible”.
But of course the compliments have a
purpose — they would much prefer to
see my corset lying on the floor.
Downstairs, five women are soaking in
a free-standing bath in the wet room.
In between rubbing each other’s breasts
and planting kisses all over their bodies, they pause to sip champagne.
A woman wearing a black basque
lingers nervously at the doorway,
debating whether to join them.
“Jump in,” the women shout, beckoning her over.
“I’ve only just had a baby,” she
tells them.
They help her to relax with
words of encouragement and
bombard her with an avalanche of compliments
until she too is wearing
nothing
but

tionship. Some husbands know. Most
don’t.” The sex soirees are held at sumptuous locations, usually in trendy penthouses
or townhouses in quiet, affluent areas.
The founder, Geneviève LeJeune, 37,
set up the organisation after finding
existing swinging parties a turn-off.
She said: “Most of our members
are married or have long-term
partners, and Skirt Club is a
place for them to have a wild
night playing with other likeminded girls before going
back to their grown-up lives.”
From what I have witnessed
tonight, this seems to be
true. Everyone speaks highly
of their partners or husbands.
“It’s just escapism,” explains one
woman, as she leads a naked redhead to a nearby bed.
It is now midnight — but for these
women, the night is just beginning.
A petite burlesque dancer dressed as a
nun shimmies through a room.
She stops in the middle and slowly peels
off her costume, revealing a gem-encrusted
thong and sparkly nipple tassels.
A 30-something woman appears in the
doorway, giggling. “I’m a unicorn,” she
beams, pointing at the pink, glittery horn
on her head.
She goes on to tell me “sex unicorn” is
the term for a third person who dates a
couple or indulges in threesomes.
“It’s called that because it’s a mythical,
magical role for someone who is up for
anything,” she continues, pointing at her
horn. Later, I find her breathless . . . and
hornless — wearing nothing but an
enchanted smile.
In a bedroom downstairs, a dozen
women twist and turn in delight, oscillate
back and forth, kneading each other.
Synchronized
cries
of
ecstasy
rise
through the three-storey house.
“It’s so liberating,” says a voyeur, sipping
a cocktail. “We are more than just mums
and housewives, bosses and employees.”
A couple of members are following me
around, pestering me to join in, but it is
all just flirty and fun. There is no, ahem,
hard sell. Nothing is ever done against
your will.
A few more hours and maybe they
would have turned me. Fortunately, they
accept that I am just the shy newbie I am
posing as.
I should be mortified by the orgy but the
setting is so serene and the women all so
beautiful that it does not feel at all seedy.
It is now 3am and the strong smell of
incense hangs in the air, masking the
musk of sex.
Flustered women with smeared lipstick
crawl out of the bedrooms, their lingerie
strewn over the floor.
Tonight they have explored their sexuality and fulfilled a fantasy a million miles
from their daily lives.
Tomorrow they will be back to their
other selves — respectable women who
wave to their neighbours and exchange
pleasantries about the weather.
But for these few hours they have been
free from the shackles of marriage and
motherhood. Next month they will return
and lose themselves all over again.

I clicked on its publicly

to submit two full-length pictures
and fill out a form detailing a few
personal details, plus my sexua
preferences. Approval, which isl
free, took a couple of days, after
which I was able to join forums

Parties are generally once a
month and held in London.
There are sister Skirt Clubs in,
among other cities, Paris, New
York, Sydney and Berlin.
Normal tickets cost £70 but a
VIP one, including champagne
and cocktails, is £90.
The location was emailed to
me a day beforehand, plus a
secret password to say on the
door. Phones are banned.
The fun began at 9pm and
finished just after 3am.

SONG FOR

GERI HORNER already has

now she will be extra busy
after bagging another series
of BBC1 singing contest All
Together Now.
The Saturday night
primetime show regularly
attracted four million viewers
and has now been
commissioned by Australian
TV bosses too.
Geri, above, said: “I loved
making the first series, it was
so much fun. It got the nation
up on their feet and singing
along on a Saturday night.”
Her co-host, comedian ROB
BECKETT, joked: “I am
absolutely delighted. After
making 100 new friends on the
show, the Christmas presents
cost me an absolute fortune,
so it’s great to be back in
employment.
“I can’t wait to get started.
I’ve also requested a stair lift
for the next series to help me
get to the top row of judges.”
He had better get saving for
another pricey Crimbo . . .

ASHLEY BANJO will soon be giving First Dates
maître d’ FRED SIRIEIX a run for his money.
The Dancing on Ice judge will be playing
matchmaker and bringing people together for
Channel 4’s new show Flirty Dancing.
DIVERSITY choreographer Ashley, below, will
teach two singletons a dance routine tailored to
their personality. They will then perform it for
each other on a date like no other.
UP FOR MASTERCHEF
THE Celebrity MasterChef kitchen just got
hotter – with singer
JOSH CUTHBERT signed
up for the new series.
Producers
hope
the
Union J heart-throb, who
is also in contention
for a Strictly place
later this year, will
attract
more
female viewers.
I can reveal
he
will
be
joined on the
BBC1
show
by
fellow
singer FRANKIE BRIDGE of
girl group The Saturdays.
A source revealed: “BBC
casting agents thinks it’s a
great shout to soft-launch
Josh to viewers on a

mainstream
show
like
MasterChef ahead of a
possible Strictly stint.
“It means that housewives will be familiar with
him
too
as
well
as
younger music fans.
“DEBBIE McGEE did the
MasterChef and Strictly
double last year, and they
hope he will too.”
Frankie will be able to
give Josh some dance tips
over the saucepans as she
took
part
in
Strictly
herself in 2014.
And she hinted at her
culinary move in December, saying: “I think in
2018, I’m finally going to
learn how to cook.”

won’t

otherwise.

CORRIE legend
CHARLIE LAWSON
has given the clearest
hint yet that he will return
to the soap – after show
boss Kate Oates teased
plans for a “well-known
character to return”.
Charlie, who was last
seen on the cobbles as
Jim McDonald in 2014,
refused to deny the claim.
Instead he tweeted me
after I discussed his
potential comeback on
ITV’s Lorraine. He said:
“I couldn’t possibly
comment. Everyone
keeps telling me I am.”
Kate has yet to confirm
which soap star it will be
– but has revealed that
the returning character is
a very familiar face.
She said: “We are
having a discussion about
bringing back a wellestablished character.”

ALF’S life hangs in the
balance in HOME AND AWAY
as he wakes up trapped
under a slab of concrete after
the explosion.
He is buried at the bottom of
a sinkhole in the Summer Bay
High science lab and soon
realises he’s not alone. But he
slips into unconsciousness
before he can speak to them.
In EASTENDERS, Mitch is
on the charm offensive as he
tries to worm his way back
into Karen’s good books.
Despite his smooth-talking
she receives a shock and is
not sure if she can trust him.
Meanwhile, Jack is
determined to impress Mel as
he cruises around Albert
Square in a rented sports car
and offers to whisk her off to
Paris for a date.
But his act fails when his
motor won’t start.
MY TEAM: Andy Halls, Hannah Hope, Rod McPhee and Benjy Potter
HE only won Dancing
on Ice a couple of
weeks ago, but TV
execs have already got
their skates on to bag
JAKE QUICKENDEN for
his next big gig.
I can reveal the former
I’m a Celeb runner-up and
X Factor contestant has
met with Hollyoaks bosses
about
a
role
on
the
Channel 4 soap.
An insider said: “Jake is
someone who the casting
directors
have
had
in
mind for a while.
“He
was
approached
several years ago but there
wasn’t really a suitable
role at the time. Now
there are opportunities for
him to join and he’s very
well liked.
“He
has
convinced
people he’d be a great
addition to the cast.”
Bosses are expected to
make a decision soon.
Jake was the runaway
star
of
the
revamped
Dancing on Ice when it
returned earlier this year.
He
proved
such
a
natural that he’s already
discussed going back in
the future as one of the
skating experts.
In an exclusive interview
after winning the contest,
he
said:
“I
would
absolutely love to come
back as a pro.”
It sounds like he might
already be booked up.

Bro won £275k
and I got zero
Dear Deidre
WHEN my brother won
£275,000 on the Lottery, he
gave money to everyone
in the family except me.
I am the oldest of my parents’
children. I am 30 and happily
married with twin sons of seven.
My husband is 31 and has his own
business.
I have a 27-year-old sister who
is single and the 22-year-old
brother who won all this money
last month. I know I should be
pleased for him but I am jealous
and annoyed.
He was always spoiled as he is
the only boy and was my parents’
favourite.
Whenever
he
was
naughty, my folks always laughed
and said how cute he was.
He has always been irresponsible
with money. He lives in a council
flat with his girlfriend and baby.
They are constantly in debt.
He will only fritter all the
money away on stupid things.
My husband saw my brother
bragging about his win in our
local recently. He acted the great
hero and was buying drinks for
everyone in the bar. He just loved

the limelight. He changes his car
frequently. It is always on credit
and has to be bigger and better
than the last. I tried to warn him
about getting into debt but he
always does the opposite.
His girlfriend is addicted to
clothes shopping online and hardly
a day goes by without her
ordering something.
My brother gave £5,000 to my
parents, which I know will help
them, but he has also given our
sister £5,000, even though she stole
£1,500 from our parents to pay off
a credit-card debt. I don’t think
it’s fair. To me it is not about the
money. It is just not right that a
thief in the family gets £5,000.
My mum said it’s OK that my
brother hasn’t given me any
money because my husband and I
don’t need it.
It’s true we have a nice home
and no cash worries but we have
worked hard for everything, which
my mum ignores.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: I can understand
how annoying it is, but you cannot
make your brother act sensibly.
He has had a lifetime of being
indulged and is unlikely to learn until
he has to face up to reality. You cannot
make that happen.
It would be sad to become resentful
about this. You have a good life with
your husband and children, don’t risk
souring that by harbouring bad feeling
about your brother.
Has this brought painful feelings
from childhood to the surface for you?
Call the Samaritans (samaritans.org,
116 123) for a safe way to get everything off your chest rather than risk
exploding to someone in the family.
Then it will be easier to focus on the
good in your marriage and your
children, and see that this is more
valuable than any amount of money
your brother fritters away.
Dear Deidre
I LOVE my wife but I let her

erection but there is never
time for sex in the mornings.
And at night I struggle.
I am 35, my wife is 32 and
we have a son aged eight.
If I do get an erection at
night, I climax very early. If we
try a second time, I lose
interest and we both end up
disappointed.

I CHEAT AS
I HATE MY
LIFE WITH
COLD WIFE
Dear Deidre
MY wife said our marriage
was over but now she is in
bits and wants to try again.
We are both 38 and have
children aged 14 and 12. She
refused sex after they were
born. Out of frustration, I
cheated a few times.
I joined a dating site last
summer and started seeing a
woman. At first we agreed it
was just for sex but we have
fallen in love.
Life at home is unbearable.
We lead separate lives and
don’t talk. My wife said if I
didn’t leave, she would. After
I said I’d go, she started
begging me to try again.
I have told my lover the
truth about my cheating in
the past. She said my wife
has never loved me but that if
I leave, it has to be for my
own sake, not hers.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Your wife
was making an empty threat
but at least her regrets
mean she is open to making
a serious effort to save your
marriage. It is worth trying,
even if it is for your
children’s sake to start with.
Your lover sounds as
though she will understand.

lot of baggage, so best see

IS IT OK TO
SEEK LOVE
BEFORE
DIVORCE?
Dear Deidre
IS it wrong to look for
someone else before I am
divorced? My marriage is
dead and I don’t want to be
on my own.
I am 58 and my husband is
59. Our marriage was over 15
years ago but when he was
given a cancer diagnosis, I
couldn’t let him go through it
on his own. He has been in
remission for five years now.
He moved back to his
home town at the other end
of the country and says he
isn’t coming back. We have
talked about divorce.
I live alone in a one-bed
flat. I see my children and
grandchildren regularly but it
is not like having that special
someone to share my life.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t set
out to look for your “special
someone”. That would put
you under too much
pressure. Start by looking
for friendship, as that is
how good relationships
most often start. My eleaflet Widening Your Social
Scene has good ideas.
Contact your husband
about starting divorce
proceedings soon.

WHEN you are a child you
smile about 400 times a day
but by the time you become
an adult, it is down to a
paltry 20 daily grins.
Not only is that a shame,
it turns out that cracking a
smile can work wonders for
mind and body, too.
Here, JON AXWORTHY
explains what turning that
frown upside down can do
for you.
SMILES
BETTER
HEALTH
MAKES YOU A BETTER
RUNNER: Want to crush your
personal best? Then smile
when it starts to hurt.
Researchers at Ulster and
Swansea universities found
that club-level runners who
smiled for six minutes while
pounding the treadmill
had a more economical
running movement.
They also felt like they had
made less effort.
SPARKS CREATIVITY: If
you are suffering a mental
block, grin.
A study found that students
who watched a film that made
them smile and laugh were
then better at performing
mental arithmetic tasks.
It also concluded that
happier workers were 12 per
cent more productive.
CUTS STRESS: Even just
forcing a smile, as 169
students were told to do in a
University of Kansas study, is
enough to lower heart rate,
which is a clear indicator of
the body’s stress response.
They were asked to
perform a difficult multitasking activity during which
they had to smile to a greater
or lesser extent. The group
that beamed most reported
the biggest drop in heart rate.
IMPROVES DECISIONMAKING: In a study
published in the journal
Cognition And Emotion,
older adults were made to
smile by being given a bag of
sweets and a thank you card
when they arrived.
They then performed
significantly better during a
decision-making experiment
than those who weren’t
greeted with anything at all.
MAKES OTHERS TRUST
YOU: It is thought humans
evolved to smile to signal
trust. This was backed up by
US research, which found
that people were more willing
to share money with someone
who smiled while trying to
persuade them to do so.
The study authors believe
smiling narrows the field of
vision and gives other people
the impression that you are
positively focused on them.

NEW MUMS RESPOND
Why
we’re

‘I don’t
have a problem
showing off
my stretch
marks and
wobbly bits’
SMUG celebrities cannot
get enough of sticking
sleek “post-baby body”
snaps online just weeks
after giving birth.
Kylie Jenner, 20, did so
on Snapchat recently,
wearing only knickers and
a crop top, above, just a
month after her daughter
Stormi was born.
Critics claimed the shots
could make other new
mums feel inadequate.
But rather than moan
about the star, some new
mothers would prefer to
post their own far more
realistic snaps of their
new figures.
Here, four women who
have given birth in the
past six months show off
their mum-bods – and tell
JENNY FRANCIS and
SAMANTHA BRICK why
they believe other recent
mothers should take pride
in their figures.
Claire Bentley, 30
WAITRESS Claire, from
Haywards Heath, Surrey, lives
with husband Matthew, 34, a
fitness account manager,
Imogen, six, and Jasmine, four
months. She says:
My body isn’t perfect but I’m
very happy and grateful with
how I look after giving birth to
two children.
Before becoming pregnant I
was a size six. I’m naturally slim
and carried no weight on my hips
or tummy at all, while my breasts
were tiny.
After childbirth I’m only a size
eight but I have stretch marks,
curves where I had none before
and wobbly bits everywhere.
My boobs have shrunk even
more. They went from an A-cup to
a C-cup and now back to an A,
which was a surprise.
At first I was a little bit
uncomfortable with the changes,
6
but I’m much more accepting of
my body now.
When I go swimming with
Imogen, I don’t have a problem
showing off my stretch marks.
I’m doing the 16:8 diet (eating
within an eight-hour period, then
fasting for 16 hours) and when
Jasmine naps I do a high-intensity
interval training workout.
My mum and I are really close
and I took a lot cues from her. She
prepared me for the changes my
body would undergo after
pregnancy and childbirth and I’m
always asking her questions.
It’s a massive help that my
husband Matthew is always telling
me how great I look.
There’s real pressure on social
media to only post pictures of
specific body types. The reality is,
most mum’s don’t look like that
and all different shapes are just
as beautiful.

Jasmine Mbye, 38
FITNESS trainer
Jasmine Mbye, 38,
went up two dress
sizes after having
daughter Lily-Lainer
four months ago. The
size 12 mum, who lives
with construction site
supervisor husband
Solomon, 36, in
Luton, Beds, says:
I didn’t put on much weight
during pregnancy , although I
made a point not to look at my
weight in my maternity notes and
not step on the scales at home. I
didn’t see the point worrying
about the numbers.
Since I gave birth, I’ve noticed
my thighs are bigger. My body
hasn’t “snapped back into
shape” like celebrities claim
and my tummy still bulges,
so I look a bit pregnant. I
had pert breasts before
6
and now they’re bigger
and have dropped. While
half of me desperately
wants my pre-pregnancy
body back, the other side
tells me to chill out. It’s
only been a few months.
I remind myself of my
gorgeous baby girl and
realise how much I love
her – and that makes me
love my body. I’m a firsttime mum and an older mum too,
so I accept my body will be more
vulnerable to change.
Family and friends are very
supportive, telling me I look good.
And although my husband made
a joke about me still looking
pregnant, he also tells me I’m
sexy. It’s important for us
mums to show off our
bodies so other mums
can feel confident
about theirs too.
MY RAE OF
SUNSHINE
By KRIS HALLENGA
IF you were watching the mammoth
fundraiser Sport Relief on the BBC on
Friday evening, you would have seen
the incredibly talented musician – and
my pal – Rae Morris singing a beautiful
song while playing the piano.
She’s also an ambassador for
CoppaFeel! – and a legend. We’ve
known each other for almost six years,
since she performed at our music
festival Festifeel, and I fell totally in
love with her awesomeness.
On Saturday, I got to see her in all
her glory performing on her latest tour
at a venue in Bristol. I have watched in
awe at how much she and her music
have grown, and there have been so
many times when her tunes have
brightened an otherwise grey day.
Recently, I have been thinking about
the extra-curricular cancer treatments
I take part in. Treatments that the
doctor doesn’t necessarily order but,
nonetheless, help me to get on with an
almighty cell war inside my body.
I’ve been partaking in hypnotherapy,
healing, reiki, massage, reflexology,
and also less conventional treatments,
such as retail therapy and bingewatching crap TV shows. They all play
a role in keeping me happy.
Another is music. And science
backs up the profound effect sound
can have on us.

Claire Reynolds, 25
SUPPORT worker Claire was a
size ten before pregnancy. Now
mum to 21-week-old daughter
Ella-Maria, she has gone up to a
size 16. Claire, from Southampton,
who lives with sales coach partner
Luke Eagle, 28, says:
I knew my body would change
with pregnancy but it’s been a
more extreme change than I had
ever imagined.
I have put on weight in all the
usual places, such as my hips, and
have gone up three dress sizes –
much more than I thought.
But being bigger doesn’t faze me,
as I’m lucky to have Ella-Maria.
I had an ectopic pregnancy six
years ago and one of my Fallopian
tubes was removed, so it’s a miracle I
fell pregnant again.
That’s why any negative thoughts
about my bigger body immediately
get pushed out of my mind.

Vanesa Macia Domene, 37
my old skinny jeans, my partner
Luke helps me to focus on the
positives and that really helps me to
stop fretting.
My best friend was worried I’d
panic about being bigger but she is
proud of how I appreciate my body
for what it’s achieved.
I go to a slimming club to make
sure I eat healthily.
I don’t want my daughter to grow
up hearing me moan about my figure.
If I have a positive outlook about my
body then she’ll have one, too.
Celebrities only show off their
post-pregnancy pictures when they
think they’ve slimmed down.
However, I think that more people
should show their body off when they
are still naturally recovering. It would
be a lot closer to reality.
I had a C-section during the birth
and whenever I see the smiling scar
on my body, it’s as a reminder of
the beautiful little life I’ve created.

NEW mum Vanesa lives with partner
Samiul Ali, 34, a chef in Colchester,
Essex. The teacher, who was a size
eight, gave birth to son Aidan Macia
Ali in December and now wears a
size 14. She says:
Women have it a lot harder today
than our mums did. Previous
generations were expected to be
bigger and dress in baggy shirts
during the first year of their baby’s life.
Today, we are constantly made to
feel like we’re supposed to
immediately slim down. That is
physically impossible for most of us,
including me.
Celebrity mums such as Kylie
Jenner and Ferne McCann don’t help
by parading their thin bodies in selfies
on social media barely a month after
giving birth.
Seeing that sort of thing while I’m
still having to wear my maternity
clothes certainly doesn’t make things
6
any easier. Before I became a mum, I
was a size eight but now I’m more
than a stone heavier and three dress
sizes up.
My breasts and my tummy are a lot
bigger than I expected them to be but
I’m slowly but surely getting used to
how I look.
Part of me wants to lose weight but
the other part wants to enjoy these
precious moments with my baby. He
comes first.
I don’t have time for exercise and
don’t want to put pressure on myself
to change too quickly.
Unlike celebs who rush to change, I
think it’s important to give your body
time to recover. That’s why showing
my body after pregnancy is
important. It lets other people know
the realities of pregnancy and birth.
I’m really lucky that my partner is so
supportive and he loves me the
way I am.

The nervous system controls the
body as it receives information from
the brain, essentially telling us how to
react in any given situation. For
example, when you hear the sound of
an alarm, your whole body reacts in
seconds to a perceived threat.
I can relate, as hearing my phone
alarm in the morning always fills me
with panic. A variation of this same
sound can send a signal to the brain
that makes you feel excited.
Music has positive physical effects.
It can help to reduce heart rate, blood
pressure and cortisol levels.
We now know from studies that
playing music is a potent treatment for
mental-health issues, such as
depression and anxiety.
Rae’s ability to make me and so
many other people feel joy, love and
happiness is SO powerful.
It’s ironic, then, that she wrote a
song on her new album about me and
the frustration she feels at not being
able to make me better, because her
epically gorgeous song has helped me
more than she would know.
If you don’t believe that all this runs
deeper, put on your favourite tune and
let me know how much happier you
feel after. Then listen to Rae’s new
album, because I can guarantee it will
make your day 100 per cent better.
Just coppafeel and look
out for the following...
LOOK for changes
in skin texture
such as puckering
LOOK for swelling
in your armpit or
around collarbone
FEEL for lumps
and thickening
LOOK for constant
pain in your
breast or armpit
LOOK for change
in discharge
LOOK for a
change in size
and shape
LOOK for nipple
inversion and
changes in
direction
LOOK for a rash
or crusting of the
nipple or
surrounding area

WILLIAM JAGGS should not be
allowed out of jail as part of a
phased release. He stabbed Lucy
Braham 66 times and she won’t
get the chance to live her dreams.
I hope, for the safety of the public
and for Lucy’s grieving family,
that he remains incarcerated.

INSTEAD of a new tax to fund
the NHS, why can’t the money be
raised by cutting the foreign aid
budget? I am fed up with this
country suffering yet again.
I HAVE to ask, do MPs think we,
the public, are stupid? There is
no reason to increase any taxes —
be it an NHS tax, council tax,
fuel tax or any other tax — while
we are giving away £15billion a
year in overseas aid.
Dramatically reduce overseas
aid or stop it completely, until we
can afford it without reducing the
standard of living for the workers
of this country.
CHRISTINE SMITH

CALLING for a new tax to boost
the NHS is not the answer,
unless you address the problems
within the health service.
The NHS must stop paying
vastly
inflated
prices
for
medicine, equipment and catering.
It should stop people from
MICK PALMER

specifically for the NHS, is a
good idea. Jeremy Hunt claims
the tax would be guaranteed to
go to the NHS and that the
money would be “spent wisely”.
We all know that the NHS
budget has been misspent for
decades,
starting
with
Tony
Blair’s harebrained idea of having
private developers build hospitals
and the NHS then rent them.
They should also cut back
manager numbers and have more
frontline staff.

WHY do parole boards pander to
brutal killers such as William
Jaggs? That monster stabbed poor
Lucy Braham 66 times.
Now he is allowed on shopping
trips to Primark.
Whatever is the parole board
thinking of?
Lucy’s devastated dad Jason
says that Jaggs is “still a danger
to the public”.
Which
right-minded
person,
anywhere, would disagree?
It’s high time parole boards
were brought to book for their
decisions.

TAKING something on to a
cricket pitch to try to alter the
ball, which Australian players did
against South Africa, is no
different to taking drugs to gain
an advantage in sport.
It is obvious that Aussie cricket
captain Steve Smith is a dab
hand at cheating and should be
sacked.
The Aussies won The Ashes but

Progress at work means showing you are taking things more
seriously. Strict Saturn and energetic Mars will help. In love,
someone with a reputation as a joker asks you a romantic
question that is sincere and deserves a straight answer. Luck
lingers on a lottery ticket waiting to be checked.
The moon in the property section of your chart reveals your
gift for turning houses into stylish, welcoming homes. If you
are single, when a friend introduces you, the conversation
flows and there is an emotional connection. Settled down?
Venus helps you read each other’s minds and hearts.
Even if you aren’t a fitness fan, you will be thrilled with a family
decision to share a healthy-eating and exercise plan. Your
positive energy ensures you make more progress than ever
expected at work. Love is out there, as you will see when you
meet a sexy and sincere Sagittarius who makes you laugh.
You feel steady Saturn keeping you focused when you talk
about the most realistic ways to organise financial and other
shared responsibilities. There is a sense of working together
to solve problems. Single? New love starts with flirty glances
while taping a TV show. Cousins can win together.
A new project transforms what starts as a routine day at work
into a challenging one. It is just what you need to show what
you can do. Single? An invitation to a glamorous event comes
from the wrong person . . . or does it? For partners, talking
the way you used to revives that loving feeling.
The Venus effect promises that whether you have just met or
have been together for years, you will be as emotionally close
as it is possible to be. What you learn about each other
amazes and pleases you. Cash-wise, check facts and figures
for yourself. Any kind of job interview should go well.
Instead of letting work tick over, your energy and enthusiasm
are back. You are ready to pitch your ideas to the bosses and
really push on with a project. A language you hear for the first
time brings new romance into your life. Family-sized luck is
linked to a relative you haven’t met yet.
Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and generous luck, takes a
new route through your sign, so be ready to give a confident
“Yes” when you are given a tricky task or are asked to speak to
a roomful of people. The quiet moments of tenderness and
togetherness confirm you are with the right partner.
Venus and the moon give you a spirit of adventure for love and
life. Romance is a journey, so don’t rush to reach a destination. Something you do just for the fun of it could develop into
a successful career. The real surprise is the pleasure you get
from getting your savings to grow.
When you are asked for your opinion of someone’s new love
interest, be tactful. Mars and Saturn in your own sign create a
blend of energy and enthusiasm that ensures you are taken
seriously at work. If you are ready for a love that lasts, you
meet when you both view a show flat at the same time.
You are a successful communicator, guiding conversations
where you want them to go, knowing when to talk and when to
listen. Venus reminds you the relaxed side of love matters as
much as passion. Single? Smile back at that person you keep
bumping into – the one who dresses to get noticed.
What at times seems like a one-sided relationship can change
into a mutual love now you and a partner know what you really
want from each other. At work, first you think the offer of a
new role is brilliant . . . then you see it as undervaluing your
skills. But just think of where it could lead.

GKN’S IN
A SPIN ON
BIG VOTE
ENGINEERING group
GKN has been forced to
retract comments about
shareholder support for
management and its plans.
It comes just days
before Thursday’s crucial
vote on an £8.1billion
hostile takeover by
restructuring firm
MELROSE.
British company GKN,
which makes parts for
cars and aircraft, is
understood to have been
challenged by The Takeover
Panel over comments to
newspapers last weekend.
Chief executive Anne
Stevens was reported as
saying she was convinced
that investors would back
the business as it fought
off the Melrose bid.
Group finance director
Jos Sclater added that
long-term shareholders
were “mostly supportive of
existing management”.
GKN said yesterday it
“confirms that these
statements of shareholder
support in respect of GKN
were not verified and are
hereby retracted”.
Yesterday, GKN upped
the ante, pledging a
£700million handout to
shareholders if they back a
sweetened offer for its
auto business from US
firm Dana.

He added: “This is a
landmark day for JD — we
are a company from the
Link-up . . . Finish Line and JD boss Peter Cowgill

the backyard of the US.
The time is right.”
The outlets acquired are
expected to stay under
Finish Line branding but
JD is planning to trial a
number of its own stores
across the US.
It will also benefit from

with Macy’s, which it supplies with athletic shoes
both online and in-store.
Finish Line chief executive Sam Sato said: “We

TEMPLEGATE’S TOP TIPS
H
VOLATILE (4.00 Southwell, nap) has blown his rivals
apart in his last three runs including over course
and distance last time. He is up 5lb for that success but
can confirm form with Holiday Magic.
BRIDANE REBEL (4.15 Hereford, nb) easily won over
three miles at Market Rasen. She was in first-time
cheekpieces and wore a tongue tie and both stay on.
Jennie Candlish’s mare has bags of stamina.
THEGLASGOWWARIOR (6.10 Newcastle, treble) is
two from three runs here and has a fitness advantage over most of his rivals. He has climbed the weights
but this is not the hottest of races for the grade.

ENGLAND HUMILIATED
D
TRAVEL SICK*
IT’S GETTING
STU-PID . . .
Broad trudges
off after defeat
Away-day blues getting ridiculous now
WHEN it comes to going
overseas, England’s Test
cricketers seem to leave
their skill, nous and brains
at the departure gate.
Their recent record away
from home is so bad as
almost to beggar belief.
They have lost ten of their
last 12 Tests — and five of the
last eight by innings.
This is not mere travel sickness. It is a contagious disease,
infecting batsmen and bowlers
alike, with the cure looking
increasingly like a change of
personnel.
There is no question that, if
England lose again in the
Second
Test
against
New
Zealand starting on Thursday
night, there will be loud calls
for head coach Trevor Bayliss
to quit Test duties and concentrate on white-ball cricket.
But team supremo Andrew
Strauss appears to retain faith
in Bayliss and the Aussie is
likely to retain all facets of his
job until he stands down in
September 2019.
Ironically, Australia’s balltampering scandal — and likely
removal of their coach Darren
Lehmann — makes it more
From JOHN ETHERIDGE
likely Bayliss will stay. But the
likes of Alastair Cook, Mark
Stoneman, Moeen Ali and
maybe even Chris Woakes are
starting to feel some heat.
If he plays in Christchurch,
James Vince is another in desperate need of a performance.
Since England beat Bangladesh in Chittagong in October
2016, their sorry Test sequence
through
Bangladesh,
India,
Australia and New Zealand
reads LDLLLLLLLDLL.
It equals England’s longest
run with no away
OUT . . .
Anderson
is last man
to fall
win, set either side of the Second World War from 1939-48.
New Zealand had beaten
England by an innings just
once before — in Christchurch
in 1984. Yet, sure enough, the
tourists plummeted to defeat
by an innings and 49 runs in
the First Test yesterday.
Even
the
near-complete
washout of days two and three
could not save them after
being routed for just 58 all out
in their first innings.
Ben
Stokes
and
Chris
Woakes mounted decent rearguard actions and defied New
Zealand for more than 100
balls — but nobody could find
a match-saving innings.
Stokes (66) and Woakes (52)
both fell to short balls from
aggressive left-arm paceman
Neil Wagner, whose tactics
involve a big heart, boundless
stamina
and
a
non-stop
barrage of bouncers.
Captain Joe Root claimed he
was pleased with the fight
England showed on the final
day. But it did not wash —
and it certainly could not
make up for the terrible
batting on day one.
Root said: “I asked the
guys at the start to show
everyone
how
much
it
means to play for England and
to represent your country. I
thought we got that today.
“It’s obviously a massive task
coming back from the start we
had in that first innings,
which was bitterly disappointing, and we were always fighting back in the game.
“But
the
character
we
showed was a step forward.
“We know our record overseas is not good enough. We’re
always looking at ways of
improving, it’s not for lack of
trying. We must continue that
work ethic and do some soulsearching.
“We must make sure a couple of guys stand up and take
it on themselves to put in that
match-winning performance.
“We do it quite frequently in
our own conditions.”
Stokes suffered from a sore
back in the later stages of his
innings — the problem that
prevented him bowling — and
twice needed treatment.
Root added: “It’s a day-today thing with Ben. We’ll
decide nearer the time if he is
fit to play in Christchurch.
“But I thought he showed
great control and restraint
from his natural game.”

BALL-TAMPERING SCANDAL
By SAM MORGAN
AUSTRALIA’S cheating attempts
were foiled by an eagle-eyed
cameraman — when he was
tipped off by South African
commentators.
TV lensman Zotani Oscar is the
talk of cricket after he picked up
disgraced
Cameron
Bancroft
hiding yellow tape down his
pants — a foreign object used to
tamper with the ball (below, left).
But were it not for former
South African fast bowler Fanie
de Villiers (below) giving Oscar
directions from the commentary
box, the Aussies may have got
away with it.
De Villiers had Oscar scanning
the movements of Steve Smith’s
men for 90 MINUTES.
He said: “We actually said to
our cameramen, ‘Go out, have a
look if they are using something’.
“They searched for an hour
and a half until they saw something and they started following
Bancroft.”
Fellow commentator Neil Manthorp added: “You wouldn’t have
picked it up from the stands. You
wouldn’t have picked it up from
normal television coverage.
“We had guys who were trying
to do their job, filming the
entirety of the event. It took a
pretty skilled cameraman to pick
it up in the first place.”
Oscar’s new-found fame will
not faze him — he is already
well known for his dapper attire
during shifts.
The SuperSport channel cameraman bizarrely decides to don
a three-piece
suit

filming.

“Then
my

me to help out.
“I went wearing a
suit and tie.
“And from there on
he said he wanted to
see me wearing that in every

“So it started like that. I only
do it on the first day, when there
is no chance of me having to
pull rigs to pull cameras.”
He added: “I actually feel more
comfortable wearing a suit rather
than having to expose my skin
to the sun.
“People started laughing at me
but now it actually excites them.
I usually get good compliments.”
probe after Smith confessed he
knew Oz team-mate Cameron Bancroft intentionally scuffed the ball
in the Third Test in South Africa.
Smith, who stood down from
leading the side in Cape Town
after the explosive revelations, is
expected to be permanently
sacked as skipper.
He has been banned by
the ICC from the Fourth
Test
in
Johannesburg,
which starts on Friday.
Aussie cricket chiefs
are under pressure to
hand severe punishments
to Smith and vice-captain
David Warner — and suspensions of up to 12 months
could now follow. Verdicts are
likely within the next 24 hours.
A lengthy ban would see Smith
miss Australia’s five one-day internationals in England this summer.
Bancroft, who used tape and grit
to try to alter the condition of the
ball, will probably be dealt
with more leniently.

JOSHUA v PARKER
MURPHY . . . words
Cell hell
helped
AJ to top
By WALLY DOWNES Jr
ANTHONY JOSHUA’S first
trainer reckons a night in
the cells helped put the
Brit on the road to
heavyweight glory.
In a nightmare 24 hours
in 2011 which almost
wrecked his career, Joshua
was detained by police
after getting into trouble.
And after his release the
following morning, he was
duly KO’d in a sparring
session with David Price,
Britain’s former heavyweight champ.
But boxing coach Sean
Murphy claims that whirlwind day did the 2012
Olympic gold medallist
the world of good.
Murphy, who runs
Finchley Amateur Boxing Club where AJ first
trained, said: “He was
going wayward so I had
words with him and he
went
back
on
the
straight and narrow.
“But he had a bit of a
relapse and that’s when
he got in trouble.
“It could have cost him
his career. It was a shock
to the system and he realised it could all be taken
away from him.
“He went to court and
the judge said it was
only because he was
dedicated to boxing
and fighting for Team
GB that he was OK.
“It was a godsend,
the kick up the bum
he
needed
to
straighten himself out
and realise he could
make something of
himself — which he
has done.”
Joshua,
28,
has
been
training
at
Finchley ABC every
Monday in preparation for Saturday’s
world title showdown
with Joseph Parker.
And AJ wants to
return to the gym
after his career is
over to help Murphy
unearth
the
next
generation of talent.
He has even made
enquiries about buying
the land and property
to help them cope with
the drastic expansion
he has helped to create.
Murphy added: “I’d
have him back 100
per cent.
“I want to keep
him
a
big
part of the
club.”

Joshua: I want to be the
smartest NOT the baddest
ASK Anthony Joshua if he hopes
to be regarded as the ‘baddest
man on the planet’ by unifying
the heavyweight division and
he’s having none of it.
The Brit wants to be respected for
brains rather than brute, so instead of
taking on Mike Tyson’s old mantle,
he’d prefer to follow the lead of that
smartest of boxing businessmen, Floyd
‘Money’ Mayweather.
There’s a steely seriousness about
Joshua

a

And that

By DAVE KIDD, Chief Sports Writer
ing with his desire to emulate the
unbeaten Mayweather. “No, I don’t
want to be the baddest man on the
planet,” says Joshua, “I want to be the
smartest fighter on the planet.
“Look at Mayweather, he’s not so
much the baddest, he’s known as the
smartest, he’s got TBE (The Best Ever),
TMT (The Money Team) around the
ring. He’s got a boxing IQ, so yeah.”
While Mayweather opened up the
potential for crossover with mixed
martial
arts
by
boxing
Conor
McGregor last year, Joshua intends to
wait before heading in a similar direction — despite interest from the UFC.
Joshua, the 28-year-old WBA and
IBF
champion,
said:
“Mayweather
opened that door up. He is a guy who
likes trial and error. He trialled it and
it worked really well.
“Providing I’ve got to the end of my
career
and
achieved
what I want
to — remember Mayweather did it at
the end of his career.
“I’ve said it would be an option but
it’s for down the line. I’d have to
complete the goals in boxing first.
“If not it becomes a pantomime
doesn’t it? You have to show respect to
your sport.”
Most sportsmen who gain worldwide
celebrity
insist
that
fame
hasn’t
changed them.
Yet Joshua is disarmingly honest by
admitting he is different in his dealings with the public than he was
before last year’s epic victory over
Wladimir Klitschko.
Asked whether he deals with people
differently, Joshua replied: “Yeah. My
time is limited. I’ve got goals now.
“Everything had been a rush, amateurs was rushed, my pro career had
been quick. I thought, ‘Woah, this is
great’. Now this is it. This is focused.
“Since I’ve started watching a lot
more athletes, I’ve learned you have to
be disciplined. You learn how to
improve and what your goals are and
how to achieve them.
“What I’ve learned about interviews
is they give your game plan away
because it’s an insight into your mind.
“A lot of people do a lot of
interviews. That means I can listen to
a lot of people. Everyone talks about
success but not their mistakes.
“I don’t do long interviews on the
phone any more. You have to get
smarter with this s***.”
Yet the Watford star is adamant he
has not been seduced by the trappings
of fame.
“Do you see me out anywhere?” he
asks. “Do you hear anything about me?
You don’t hear anything like that.”
It seems Joshua has been bruised
by criticism of his last performance
in October, when he took ten rounds
to dispose of unsung Frenchman
Carlos Takam.
He said: “I won against Takam, I
controlled it for ten rounds with a
broken nose but because I didn’t
knock him out, people say, ‘Has he
got stamina issues?’
“In Mayweather’s day, he goes 12
rounds in every fight and people
say he’s a purist, I go past ten
rounds with Takam and I’m not
as good as I should be because I
didn’t knock him out in round
two. It’s a different dynamic.
“All I hear is that heavyweight
boxing is about power and having a
good chin. It’s never about technical
ability, the will to win, his understanding of the game, his inside work.
“I want to go out on March 31 and
establish that jab, don’t worry about
not being a knockout merchant or
impressing anyone but yourself.
“Think
only
about
how
you’re going to win the fight
and if it doesn’t work, you
go again. Nowadays it
feels like you’re defined
after one mistake.”

The Everton striker, 21,
was widely tipped to get
his first Three Lions cap
against Italy tonight.
Instead, he will be leading the line for the Under21s in their Euro 2019
qualifier against Ukraine.
Asked if he was gutted
at missing out on a senior
call-up, he said: “No, no.
I’m still young. I know
there was speculation but
I need to be scoring goals

“It’s my dream to play for
England at senior level but
this time it was not to be.”

“I do believe I’m ready to

Aidy Boothroyd’s Young
Lions are five points clear
at the top of their Euro

And the U-21s are
unbeaten in THIRTY since
losing to Belgium in 2011.
Calvert-Lewin has only

ITALY come to Wembley tonight after
failing to qualify for a World Cup for the
first time in 60 years. CHARLIE WYETT
finds out what went wrong from ex-AC
Milan and Derby winger Stefano Eranio . . .
SO WHAT HAPPENED?
Football, like life, is a wheel. This is
not a good period for Italian football
but it has happened with other
countries, like you would know.
England were not at the 1994 World
Cup or Euro 2008. Holland will not be
in Russia. Italy were unlucky
being put in Spain’s qualifying
group then lost to a weaker
team, Sweden, in the playoffs. This is the beauty of
football. If it was predictable there would be no
point playing games.
ANY LIGHT AT THE
END OF TUNNEL?
Yes. Our federation has
created

players, like they did in
Germany. They started

rather than try and force

“But that will come, the
more guys play together and
they get that understanding
of the runs each other make,
then we will create more
chances.
“And if we create chances, we’ve got guys who will
finish them.”
Southgate
is
hugely
respectful of Italian football,
despite the Azzurri’s failure
to qualify for Russia.
He got all dreamy about
the qualities of the Italian
greats he faced such as
Paolo Maldini, Fabio Cannavaro
and
Alessandro
Nesta and spoke of the
‘underrated art of defending’.
But Southgate knows the
public will only go so far in
their appreciation of bodies on
the line and the joy of keeping
sheets clean.
He said: “We want to build
on the performance in Holland.
“We’ve only played this system a few times but this is a
really good test because, against
the 4-3-3 of Brazil (in November), we didn’t play out of
pressure so well.
“We’ve got to cope with that,
got to have the confidence to
find the solutions to play
through them. We’ve got to try
to be more effective in the final
third of the field.
“But I think we’ve advanced a
lot, the players are a lot clearer
on the messages of how we
want to play, and that showed
in the (Holland) game.”

and actually there are not enough
spaces to play.
You also have PlayStation and the
internet. In southern Italy, you can still
find some children playing on the
street — and that’s why the most
talented players are coming from there,
such as Lorenzo Insigne at Napoli.
IS IT HARD FOR ITALIAN KIDS TO
GET A CHANCE TO PLAY IN SERIE A?
in Serie A, it was the best league in
the world.
I had the chance to train alongside
stars such as Marco van Basten or
Ruud Gullit. And in that period you
could even find in Serie B players like
Batistuta or Hagi. Working every day
with such players helps you improve.
Now, the Premier League is much
richer and, if you are a top talent, you
would obviously move to England. And
maybe Spain, Germany or even France.
That is a problem. Marco Verratti is a
real Italian talent but Italian clubs cannot compete wages-wise with PSG.
But he now plays in a league with no
competition. This is stopping his growth.
Claudio Marchisio reckoned he would
not have played for Juventus had they
not been relegated in 2006.
Bigger clubs in Italy want immediate
results,
they
don’t
have
patience.
Marchisio and Giovinco played only
because Juventus were relegated.
But let’s take a look at Milan. The
club started to launch young players
since their budget was reduced.
They had to save money and tried
youngsters. Now they have developed
keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, Davide
Calabria and Patrick Cutrone.
I say to Italian clubs: ‘Take a risk,
trust young players’.
Yes, it’s true. The street was the gym
for all youngsters. It helped you to
become comfortable with the ball and
do unpredictable things.
Now in Italy, we can’t see children
play in the street. It’s more dangerous
much more competitive than our
Primavera (Italian U-19 championship).
Also, Italian clubs should let more of
their players go to Serie C. There is
certainly a lot of improving to do but
eventually, things will improve.

“Our team has less experience and the level of
Serie A, apart from the top
three teams, is not as good
as the Premier League.
“You cannot compare
our players born in 1993,
1994, 1995, 1996 and
1997 to the English ones
born in the same years.
“I don’t think we will
grow too fast. Italy starts
not from zero, but near
zero. Patience is the key.
“It will be hard in the
summer, not being at the
World Cup. Then, it will
hit home. It will hurt.
“Personally, you never
stop learning and playing
at a World Cup is important for personal growth.”

the World Cup for the first
time in 60 years after
losing in the play-offs.

He is a natural on the ball, full
of confidence after scoring 20
times during City’s march towards
the Premier League title.
England could do with some of
that. Sterling’s last goal for his
country was in October 2015,
when he hit the target from close
range in a 2-0 victory over
Estonia at Wembley.
In fact, he has only scored
twice in 36 games for the Three
Lions — his other goal also coming in 2015 against Lithuania.
To play in England’s front three,
to be in such an influential position on the pitch, Sterling must

“A manager like that brings the

“He makes sure to tell you

England are benefiting from

Sterling was easily the best

win over Holland on Friday night.

and is much harder to knock off
the ball now.

All we need is love
to give us a boost
RAHEEM STERLING has urged England fans to “give love” and cut
out the negativity.
The Manchester City star was battered by Three Lions fans at Euro
2016 — there was even an internet hate campaign to bring him
home early from the tournament.
Ahead of winning his 37th cap against Italy tonight, Sterling told
BBC Radio 5 live: “I feel sometimes there is too much negativity.
“I’d love to hear some positive notes coming in, just to let the
boys know everyone is behind them. Make the boys go off to the
World Cup with a clear head knowing everyone is behind them and,
trust me, you would see a better England.
“If we get behind those players, give them love,
you wouldn’t know how much that would boost
their confidence. It’s disappointing when you

but it’s what the fans want — to see
you perform well.”

the gaffer, Gareth Southgate, takes
me off early! It is a different
environment.
“I should be scoring a lot more
for England and I put a lot of
pressure on myself.
“I have done that at my club, I
wasn’t scoring a lot of goals there
as well, but I’ve turned that
around.
“It is the same with England. I
put a lot of pressure on myself to
do well and score more. And it
will be a matter of time.
“Once I get back into that
rhythm, balls start to drop. I do
have that feeling that it is going
to come soon.”
Still, he has other qualities.
The City star was substituted on
Friday, with Southgate making a
point of speaking to Sterling as
he walked off the pitch.
England’s head coach wanted
him to know that he had done
nothing wrong, that his legs were
being saved for Italy tonight.
Sterling added: “It was reassuring. Obviously I wanted to finish
the game, some of my goals even
when I was at Liverpool came
late into games.
“I’m always thinking I am going
to get a chance soon but I was
more happy we played a good
game.”
Sterling is still learning, mastering his art during his second
season under Guardiola.
The
fierce
competition
for
places has also helped, with
Bernardo
Silva,
Leroy
Sane,
David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne
jostling for position in that City
forward line.
Sterling added: “When I feel

that brings the best out of me.
“Sometimes

might not be in the squad and I
think, ‘OK then, cool, we’ll see

Plenty of people were quick to
knock their 1-0 win over Holland
on Friday and I know it was against
a Dutch side which didn’t even
make the World Cup.
But there was enough in the performance to fill me with optimism —
not least the fact there is bravery in
their game once more.
Gareth Southgate deserves plenty
of praise for getting his team to play
without fear, especially when they’re
bringing it out from the back.
In the past, it has been more of a
case of getting rid quickly, booting
it long and, invariably, giving the
ball away.
I remember the great Johan Cruyff
saying once how he never
minded
losing
possession
when England were the opponents because he knew they’d
soon have it back again.
Under Gareth there is an
increasing feeling those days
are long gone. So fair play
to him for that.
When he was appointed,
it’s safe to say it was hardly
to a chorus of cheers and optimism.
To many he was just a safe pair of
hands, an FA product who only got
the call because he would say the
right things and not offend anyone.
But I know Gareth from the time
he came to Crystal Palace at 16, and
it was clear early on he was a
strong character.
Maybe people thought the

Now the players are taking his

those baby steps will turn into giant

With Southgate there are no airs

is coming, believe me.
And I do love the way he’s got us
playing from deep. There are bigger
tests, teams will press us higher, but

he’s another who can drive forwards.
It’s probably a bit late for defenders Lewis Dunk and Ben Mee,
which is unlucky for them, but the
other side of their disappointment is
because it’s down to the form of
Alfie Mawson and Harry Maguire.
I’m not saying we’re going to bring
the World Cup home, but we’re not
the soft touch some believe and I
think Italy will discover that tonight.
Let’s hope the only fear and panic
we see in Russia are in the eyes of
our rivals.
It’s been a long enough wait.
