Tuesday, May 8, 2018 2GM CABINET CUSTOMS STORM M BORIS SAVAGES No10 TRADE BID By LYNN DAVIDSON and STEVE HAWKES BORIS Johnson has piled pressure on Theresa May’s “crazy” plans for an EU customs deal. He accused the PM of betraying Brexit and is said to be fed up with her dithering. Under fire . . . Mrs May In an interview, Mr Johnson said a customs partnership — where Britain would collect Brexit plan lashed taxes on behalf of the EU — would create “a whole new web of bureaucracy”. The Foreign Secretary told the Daily Mail: “It’s totally untried and would make it very, very difficult to do free trade deals. “If you have the new customs partnership you have a crazy system whereby you end up collecting tariffs on behalf of the EU at the UK frontier. That’s not taking back control of your trade policy, it’s not taking back control of your laws. It’s not taking back control of your borders and it’s actually not taking back control of your money either, because tariffs would get paid centrally back to Brussels.” Mrs May’s inner circle of ministers last week voted six to five against her plan, which Eurosceptics said would effectively keep Britain in the single market. Business Secretary Greg Clark said the lost vote had not killed it off. Tory MPs have accused No10 of reviving former Chancellor George Osborne’s anti-Brexit Project Fear. Friends close to BoJo fear he could quit the Cabinet in frustration at being one of the only Leave champions left. One said: “Boris is completely fed up. He thinks he is the only one pushing Brexit now. I don’t think it’s a resignation thing at the moment.” Thanks for being hair DONALD Trump should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Boris Johnson said yesterday. He reckons the US President deserves the top accolade if he manages to “fix” the hotspots of Iran and North Korea. The Foreign Secretary also urged Mr Trump not to rip up a deal with Tehran to halt its nuclear weapons programme. Mr Johnson launched a charm offensive in Washington to try to save the 2015 agreement. He said of President Trump: “I don’t see why he is any less of a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize than Barack Obama.” Mr Obama was awarded the prize in 2009, less than a year after entering office. THE boss of UK Power Networks was quizzed over a £75million IT deal handed to his son’s firm. KPMG investigated Basil Scarsella’s deal with Enzen, where son David is a director, but found no wrongdoing as he had declared a conflict of interest. JEREMY Corbyn secretly backed Scottish independence, it was claimed last night. The SNP’s Mhairi Black said that from “talking to him”, she knew he did not accept Labour’s official policy. Ms Black blasted: “He has sold his soul, especially in terms of Scotland.” A Labour spokesman told the Huffington Post the claims were “complete nonsense”. A TRADE union chief yesterday urged Jeremy Corbyn to bring down Theresa May’s government by voting to stay in the EU. Manuel Cortes at the TSSA transport union said Labour should be “digging the Tories’ political grave”.

Lags will also be forced to Cell checks, clean-up, sniffer dogs & scans clean up yards to remove piles of rubbish. A Prison Officers Association dossier said it was easy for drugs and mobile phones to be smuggled into jails — and claimed some cells are not checked for months. Officers confiscated 500lb of narcotics in England and Wales in 2016 as well as 13,000 mobile phones. Governors say the increase in drugs is the reason for record levels of violence — with assaults on officers now averaging one every hour. Association chief Steve Gillan said: “We’ve gone from security to appeasement. “The prisoners are running the show. The public would be outraged if they could see what little was being done. “It’s open season for drugs and it’s fuelling the record levels of violence.” The crackdown is being masterminded by Prisons Minister Rory Stewart after meetings with the Association. Under a working title of “Decency, Safety, Security,” he also wants to ensure all repairs are done and increase the quality of education. email@example.com Karen & sugardad Jailed . . .

He was seen for the first time since his arrest after a “domestic incident” at the home he shares with fiancée Louise Gibbons. Le Vell, 53 — who plays mechanic Kevin Webster in the ITV soap — has been staying at the £70-a-night Holiday Inn in Manchester. He popped out into the Bank Holiday sunshine to have a cigarette yesterday. The night before, Le Vell — who has battled booze — was seen drinking pints of beer at a bar alone. A source said: “It’s been a turbulent few days and Le Vell wants to get back on his feet. “Everyone’s really worried about him. It’s sad to see him on a beautiful day looking so sad. “Things haven’t been great with Louise but it’s not the first rocky road they’ve come across.” Le Vell had spent Thursday night in a police station on suspicion of assault but was released without charge. The actor was treated in hospital after a 999 call at around 11pm from the house in Timperley, Gtr Manchester, he shares with Louise, 42. It was reported that he fell down stairs. Le Vell, who joined Corrie in 1983, told show bosses it was a “silly row that got out of hand” but faces crisis talks this week. He split with wife Janette, the mum of his two children, in 2011. He popped the question to Louise, who he met four years ago, after he said she helped him turn his life around. Le Vell has had a turbulent few years. He was cleared of child abuse claims and has fought alcoholism and bankruptcy. firstname.lastname@example.org Star engagement fears Cast ‘raw’ on suicide story HAPPIER TIMES Michael says that Louise helped to turn his life around ON HIS LONESOME Star enters £70-a-night hotel where he has been staying BLING FOR A FLING FLASHY types in souped-up cars and bling make great one-night stands but lousy husbands, a study suggests.

Men had the same impression. Some 233 US volunteers, average age 19, had to rate a bloke with a reliable car and a boyracer in the Michigan university study.

Mike Curtis, 32, took his life in 2015 — days after the death of actress Anne Kirkbride. An insider said it was “a terrible time” for those on the show and the ratings-boosting suicide plotline involving Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward) brought the memories flooding back.

Fireﬁghters £81k Teachers £78k Social workers £66k Nurses must save £98,000, firefighters £81,000 and primary teachers £78,000 before a bank will offer a loan on a new-build home. HOUSE BUYING 1 Housing charity Shelter said it showed home ownership was out of reach for most working Brits unless they first saved for years. It based its figures on the total salary of two workers on the same wage, estimating that brickies earned least at £23,597. This was timesed by 3.25, a mortgage multiple banks often use. The total was taken off £271,915, the typical cost of a new-build, to give the deposit. It comes after figures revealed new homes are at their most unaffordable — 9.7 times the average salary — despite a Tory vow to solve the housing crisis. Shelter say, in the rush to help, ministers have unwittingly removed an obligation on developers to build their quota of affordable housing. Boss Polly Neate said: “We need to be building affordable homes for the families who desperately need them. “We are concerned government reforms designed to help might do the complete opposite. “There’s still time for the Government to fix this by closing the viability loophole and strengthening the official definition of affordable housing.” email@example.com The Sun Says — Page Ten Deposit plan . . homes ‘Give all £10,000 at 25 for a home’ HOUSE BUYING 2 By LYNN DAVIDSON ALL 25-year-olds should get a £10,000 “inheritance” payment towards a first-time house deposit, business start-up, training or their pension, a think tank declares today.

They could keep the first £125,000 of inheritance, then face between 20-30 per cent tax on the rest.

The true figure may be even higher as 17 of 43 police forces, including Police Scotland, did not respond to our request. Offences doubled in Merseyside and Durham and there were almost 100 per cent increases in South Yorkshire and Kent. There were significant rises in the West Midlands, Cheshire, Warwickshire, Hampshire and Northumbria. In Dorset and Leicester, police questioned fiveyear-old boys over alleged knife offences. Child safety campaigners said the increase was deeply worrying. Theresa Cave, who campaigns against knife and violent crime in schools, said she has lowered her target age group to start at ten-year-olds. Theresa, whose 17-yearold son Chris was stabbed to death in Cleveland in 2003, added: “I know of seven-yearolds taking huge knives into primary school. “A lot of this is also down to older gang members getting younger children to commit serious crimes. “Seven, eight, nineyear-olds are stabbing each other on the streets over drugs rackets.” Under current law, under-tens cannot be prosecuted but can be given a curfew, a child safety order or taken into council care.

FairFuelUK’s protest is set to coincide with the delayed launch of the Government’s Clean Air Strategy. The campaign group instead wants lower public transport costs and cleaner refinery fuel. Co-founder Howard Cox said: “Motorists are sick of being singled out for poor air quality. “The Government hasn’t listened so far to drivers, it needs to start doing so or it will lose the support of an entire section of society at the very heart of our economy.” A poll of 30,000 FairFuelUK members found 88 per cent would pay 5p per litre more for cleaner petrol or diesel.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been blessed beyond words in my life so far. “Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 years with me and my family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie. Last night was the best night of my life.” Revellers were given old-fashioned life jackets. Comedian Alan tweeted: “Most parties you leave with a goody bag!!! But a life jacket?!!!! WTF?!! Ha!” firstname.lastname@example.org Snowflakes’ icy reaction SNOWFLAKE fans hit out on social media about Adele’s Titanic theme. The movie told of the 1912 disaster when the luxury ship hit an iceberg in the Atlantic. One critic wrote: “Isn’t this kinda/very inappropriate?” A second said: “1,500 people died. Not a good party theme.” Another added: “I love the movie Titanic but this seems just a little wrong to me. ‘Hey lets have a bday theme about a tragic event where a bunch of people died’.” DEPP ‘FIGHT’ ON SET JOHNNY Depp attacked a location manager on the set of his new film after drinking all day, it is claimed. The star, 54, is said to have tried to strike the veteran production pro and yelled at him: “I’ll give you $100,000 (£74,000) to punch me right now!” Tempers flared on the “toxic” set of detective drama LAbyrinth when Depp took over directing duties during a scene in LA. A street was closed off, but when the permit ran out, Depp wanted to keep the cameras rolling. When the location manager told him no, Depp allegedly tried to punch him in the ribs before being pulled away. 10 ............... Tuesday, May 8, 2018 1GM Sun We’ve paid EU £16bn THE SCHEME THAT COULD DERAIL BREXIT SAYS Let’s break free THE ridiculous idea of the UK staying in a restrictive customs pact with the EU must be put to bed once and for all. As MPs return to Parliament this week, Tory rebels think they can twist the Prime Minister’s arm and force her into membership of the customs union, or at least an imitation of it. They’re all over the airwaves slamming their free-trading colleagues as “hard Brexit” ideologues. But those pushing for us to strike out on our own are far from rabid extremists. They’re following the only possible logic of the Referendum result, the Prime Minister’s own speeches and the Tory manifesto – a document that those remoaning rebels seemed perfectly happy with when they were re-elected off the back of it last year. If a deal between the UK and Brussels stops Britain making independent trade agreements with the rest of the world, or leaves us subject to rules over which we have no say, then it would be a betrayal of the 17.4million people who wanted out of the EU. The Europhile backbenchers know that. If they win this battle, they’ll have succeeded in keeping us in Europe by the back door. They’ll mark it up as a victory, but this isn’t a political game. It would be an insult to democracy and hold our economy back. We must start work on building a truly Global Britain — now. in tariffs for non-EU goods...customs union is a racket THAT brickies and nurses are now having to scrimp and save for six-figure deposits is nothing short of a national scandal. No recent Government has been willing to grasp this particular nettle. Our housing crisis has been brewing for decades and sorting it will require real radicalism from the new Communities supremo James Brokenshire. He must fight the Nimbys head-on and demand Treasury cash to unleash a building programme. He must also tear up planning laws and look again at the Green Belt. The Tory leadership will be worried about their voters in the shires. But that’s nothing compared to the hit they’ll take for generations if they don’t face up to the challenge. No toxic taxes MOTORISTS have been treated like cash cows for far too long. Plans for new “toxic taxes” rub salt in the wound, especially for diesel drivers. It wasn’t that long ago punters were told it was greener to buy diesels, so fining them years later in the name of environmentalism is especially unfair. It must be possible to “go green” without piling misery on hard-working Brits who rely on their motor to get to work, take the kids to school and visit the GP. Time for a u-turn on yet another fuel tax. £ The home front SHAMELESS . . . EU chief Juncker has picked the pockets of British shoppers ON seeing the initials NCP, most of us think about parking. National Car Parks is, after all, Britain’s largest parking provider. To political insiders, though, NCP now means the New Customs Partnership — an unworkable scheme cooked up in Whitehall that could topple Theresa May and derail the UK’s European Union exit. It refers to May’s bright idea about what to do about our departure from the EU customs union. During the referendum campaign, Brexiteers prevailed by arguing for Britain to “take back control of our laws, borders and money”. But NCP will mean we remain ensnared within EU tariff structures, with Britain charged with collecting tariffs for Brussels and applying EU rules at its ports. The scheme relies on an untested “track-and-trace” technology to judge if goods are destined for UK or EU markets. Repayment mechanisms will then hopefully settle differences between UK and EU tariffs later — something even the EU has dismissed as “magical thinking”. It is an idea riddled with problems. And if you think it sounds ludicrously complex, that’s because it is. Nevertheless arch-Remainer civil servants surrounding May are pushing the scheme inces- By LIAM HALLIGAN santly — egged on by proBrussels ministers who have never accepted Brexit. Getting out of the EU customs tangle is vital for Britain’s prosperity, post-Brexit. The EU’s customs union puts a tariff wall around all member states, imposing charges on goods brought in from the rest of the world. That means UK shoppers pay more, often to protect inefficient producers elsewhere in the EU. Almost 40 per cent of all EU tariff revenue comes from imported clothing and footwear — raising prices on goods accounting for a high share of poorer households’ spending. EU tariffs also make food more expensive. Grocery bills could fall by up to 20 per cent once we leave the customs union, according to the Policy Exchange think-tank. It is scandalous that four fifths of the tariffs on non-EU goods bought by UK shoppers go directly to Brussels. Over the past seven years, Britain has sent European Commission president JeanClaude Juncker and his EU pals £16billion in such tariffs — enough to pay for 100,000 extra nurses over that entire period. Poor UK households paying over the odds for nonEU imports have footed much of this bill. We’re often told that being in the customs union means Britain benefits from the EU’s “60-plus” freetrade agreements with other nations. But only around half of these deals are in force — and most are with minnows and microstates. All the EU’s trade deals combined cover less than a tenth of the global economy. The EU is bad at striking trade deals as member states’ interests often conflict — and the French always dig their heels in on agriculture. Alarmist nonsense That’s why, after years of trying, there is no EU free trade agreement with the US, China, India or any really large economy. Britain has more chance of securing valuable consumerfriendly agreements negotiating alone with big nations — as Switzerland did with China in 2014. London can cut deals favouring sectors where we are strong, such as services, not skewed towards French and German interests, as EU deals often are. And sizeable nations with EU trade agreements, such as South Korea and Mexico, say they now want bespoke post-Brexit UK deals. Big business lobbyists such as the Confederation of British Industry want to keep Britain in the customs union. They care more about protecting incumbent, inefficient corporations than democracy. Leaving the customs union will boost the UK’s smaller, dynamic firms, as new trade agreements help them export to the world’s fastest-growing Eastern markets. In the early 1970s, when Britain joined what became the EU, the bloc comprised 30 per cent of the global economy. That figure, once Britain leaves, falls below 15 per cent — despite the EU now having more member states. It makes no sense for a diverse, competitive economy such as Britain to hide behind a tariff wall harming our consumers. Which is why we need to leave the EU’s backwardlooking customs union — as voters said in June 2016. And we certainly don’t need NCP to save Northern Ireland from renewed conflict. This is alarmist nonsense. Practical solutions exist, as the head of the UK’s border authorities and his Irish equivalent have made clear. The EU’s customs union is a racket that Britain must ditch in its entirety. Pro-Remain fanatics have parked their tanks on the lawn of democracy — and Mrs May needs to drive them off. l Liam Halligan is an economics expert. Follow @liamhalligan.

There had been no official update on his condition from his former club or his family since the procedure. Fergie, 76, is understood to have suffered a fall on Saturday at home in Wilmslow, Cheshire. He was taken to Macclesfield District Hospital before being rushed to Salford Royal in Gtr Manchester and put in a medically induced coma. He had the surgery the same day. Wife Cathy, who he wed in 1966, and their sons Mark, Darren and Jason are thought to be at his bedside. Former United legends Wayne Rooney, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo have all sent their best wishes to the manager, who led the club to 38 trophies. Becks, who made his debut at Man Utd in 1992 Battling . . . Ferguson aged just 17, posted a throwback photo on Instagram on Saturday night which said: “Keep fighting boss, sending prayers and love to Cathy and the whole family.” The club’s current stars, meanwhile, have vowed to win the FA Cup for Sir Alex — and are hopeful he may be able to watch them lift the trophy on TV. The aces have pledged to beat Chelsea on May 19 as a tribute to the Old Trafford legend. Midfielder Juan Mata, 30, said the side would work hard to honour Sir Alex’s “winning mentality” in the season’s final three games — “especially in the FA Cup Final”. Sir Alex won the trophy five times with United. A source said: “The prognosis for him is good and his closest friends in football are being kept abreast of developments.” Prof’s C4 cops rap THE academic whose clash on Channel 4 News saw host Cathy Newman receive death threats has rapped the broadcaster for calling in the police. Followers of Canadian Prof Jordan Peterson bombarded Newman with abuse after she challenged the psychologist’s views on gender selfidentification in January. He told the Radio Times: “You could call the police in for anything; that isn’t evidence of a credible threat. “I thought, ‘Oh, now they’re going to spin this as a victim narrative’. Which I was appalled at.” But he said he had tried to stop the abuse. SAVED OUR BACON A driver and “80 per cent” of 200 pigs on an overturned lorry were rescued in Heighington, Co Durham, yesterday.

The mercury hit 83.66F (28.7C) in Northolt, West London, at 4.05pm — smashing 1999’s previous record of 74.48F (23.6C). It allowed Brits to strip down and soak up the rays like pals Kalimba and Caroline on Boscombe Beach, Bournemouth. The scorcher made Britain hotter than Miami, Ibiza and Hawaii.

The contestants, on the other hand? Jeez. Not only have they become noticeably thicker, they’re also slightly more reckless and inclined to build their part, in the apparent belief they might just be able to go pro with the “thick bell end” routine. That’s why Clarkson is the perfect choice to host the 20th anniversary run of Millionaire. He swivels round in disbelief when it’s revealed eight per cent of the audience actually think “vent your intestines” is an expression of anger. He cuts Ricky’s phonea-friend dead when he tries to give it “personality” instead of an answer. And, best of all, he has an “ask the host” lifeline to riff about his hatred of cricket when the same contestant is asked: “Who plays at The Oval?” Clarkson is the authentic voice of viewer despair and he clearly loves the show as well, if not the contestants. Admittedly, he did also become the first person to say “Och aye the noo,” on television, since Russ Abbot, in about 1978, but I’ll leave others to vent their intestines about that one and urge ITV to sign him for an extended run, with this assurance: Your jackpot prize could not be any safer if you had Abu Hamza throwing for the speedboat on Bullseye.

Genderquake has a variety of sexes but they all talk out of the same hole IT’S nearly eight years since Channel 4 had the good sense to ditch Big Brother, and it remains one of the smartest things it’s ever done. The show was toxifying the entire brand. Like a phantom itch from an amputated limb, though, it still takes the odd scratch at Big Brother by randomly putting a bunch of attentionseeking a***holes, with stupid names, into a house together and getting them drunk. Take last night’s Genderquake, the first part of a season of programmes based on the assumption “Gender is changing in 21st Century Britain”. That’s a matter of opinion, I’d have thought. Channel 4, though, has sensed a gender-fluid bandwagon is very much rolling. So it’s hired a fancy-looking house in the Sussex countryside and filled it with 11 attention-seeking a***holes, like transwoman Cambell, who appears to be missing a P, as well as an ’enis, as she’s not shy of explaining, and describes herself as: “A woman who is fearless, complicated, emotional and kind of like . . .” Self-absorbed? Dense? Egotistical? No. “Glamorous”, apparently. Cambell, however, is far from being the most annoying person in the Genderquake house, which would probably come down to a toss-up between stroppy Saffron, resident pot-stirrer Markus and Phoenix, who “feels 70 per cent female” and claims: “I’m a gender-fluid, non-binary freaky alien child.” Phoenix can spout this unhindered nonsense, of course, because in Channel 4’s world, feelings often trump science and hypocrisy dictates you can claim there are any number of genders you like, just so l TV GOLD: Clarkson’s brutal honesty already reducing Chris Tarrant to a distant memory on Millionaire.

This is probably why they also booked Filomena, who has the production team playing sinister music when she suggests you need a womb to be a woman, and token working-class straight lad Tom, who needs to be shown the error of his provincial ways because he actually thinks, “There’s only male and female”. Controversial, I know, but if Channel 4 was hoping to open up Tom to its metropolitan ridicule, it hasn’t worked, because he’s not just the nicest housemate — he’s the only one with a world view that extends beyond himself. The most interesting, however, is definitely Brooke, who was actually born with both male and female chromosomes, grew up as a boy, but now lives as a woman and would’ve made an interesting documentary on her own. It’s all lost, though, to the mob-handed Big Brother approach, which always craves one thing above all. Conflict.

Channel 4 kept plying them, though, and eventually it kicked off after Markus discovered Romario was a secret trans-man, packing a prosthetic penis of equine proportions, and grassed him up to everyone because: “I don’t beat about the bush.” Nor does Romario, for that matter and, in time-honoured BB fashion, the episode ended with threats, abuse and people being pulled apart. How the conflict resolves itself, though, will have to remain an eternal mystery, as I’m not prepared to miss tonight’s episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for another Channel 4 hour of drunken, bottlespinning victimhood with this lot. I guarantee you, though, Genderquake will not conclude with the news: “The housemates have accepted the biggest single problem with their lives is their own failure to grow up and, until such time as they do, just as others must respect their right to describe themselves as ‘freaky alien children’, so they must respect the right of others to roll their eyes and mutter, ‘Bloody students’.” lllll GREAT Sporting Insights.

It started with a burger, ended with a poached egg and the only point I woke up in between, was when a contestant called Trevor gazed longingly into his fridge and sighed: “I’d love to cook with all that, but then I’d just be banging some nuts in.” Brace yourself, Mary.

They discovered that cholesterol in he formation the brain is a trigger for the of clusters of amyloid-beta. They eventually lead to the formation of amyloid plaques in a toxic chain reaction that results in the death of brain cells. An international team led by Cambridge University researchers said the identification of a new “pathway” in the brain where amyloid-beta sticks together, or aggregates, could represent a fresh target for potential treatments. Until now, researchers had been baffled as to how amyloid-beta starts to aggregate in the brain, where it is typically pr present at very low levels. Study leader Professor Michele Vendruscolo, of Cambridge University, said: “The question now is how to control cholesterol’s role in Alzheimer’s disease through the regulation of its interaction with amyloid-beta. “We’re not saying that cholesterol is the only trigger for the aggregation process, but it’s certainly one of them.” 1M people in UK are expected to have dementia by 2025 1GM Mazda’s easy win MAZDA’S CX-5 SUV has been voted Britain’s most comfortable car.

BRAVE GIRL WHO EXCLUSIVE by ROD MCPHEE WITH tears rolling down her face, Sarah Lockey held baby daughter Tilly for the last time before the tiny girl was taken to have her hands amputated. Celebs who gave Tilly a helping hand The mum had watched helplessly as a rare, devastating strain of meningitis had ravaged the 15-month-old’s body. Now, as she prepared to hand her girl over to surgeons, she made a solemn pledge. Sarah recalled: “I told her, ‘You’re going to lose your hands, but I promise I’ll get you some new ones’.” Fast forward a decade and Tilly, now 12, does not just have the promised prosthetic hands — she has the most innovative bionics in the world. The pioneering “Hero Arms”, named for their likeness to superhero limbs, have independently moving digits and function as normal hands. They even come with easily changed snap-on casings in different colours, so Tilly can coordinate her arms with her outfits. She has chosen six colour options, including a snazzy rose gold with LED lights and a black set based on the robo arms of a character from video game Deus Ex. More importantly the super-cool new hands have given Tilly, who is one of four sisters, a massive confidence boost. The schoolgirl said: “Every time I went out I’d get stared at by every person in the world. I’d hear other kids say: ‘Where are her hands?!’ HAND MAID . . . Emma Watson MAGIC TOUCH . . .

But now when they see me kids still stare, but they’re like, ‘Wow, it’s a robot!’ And I don’t mind that so much. “Some kids have even said they want to have bionic hands fitted on their arms just like me, which is a bit weird. But in a way it’s cool to hear too.” The bionic hands, developed by Open Bionics in Bristol, are tailormade for Tilly on a 3D printer. They are the first medically approved prosthetics of their kind in the UK, and are controlled by sensors which detect the tiniest muscle movements in her arms. And they allow such precise, delicate finger movements that she can do things none of the other prosthetic hands she has used in the past could manage. Tilly said: “I can brush my own hair, my own teeth, do my make-up. And all I really wanted to do was be in a picture with my friends and be able to put my thumbs up — which I can now do. “And there’s this game on the Wii called Just Dance, and you’ve got to hold the remote in one hand. “Before I had to sticky tape it to my arm and it would really hurt when they took it off. But now I don’t have to.” Tilly’s new arms are all down to the tireless fundraising by mum Sarah, 39, and dad, Adam, 38, from Consett, Co Durham, who set up the Give Tilly A Hand campaign. By selling donated handprint art made by celebrities — including Emma Watson, JK Rowling and Tom Hanks — they raised the £150,000 needed to buy their girl a succession of increasingly advanced prosthetics. Along with financial help from their NHS Primary Care Trust, their quest for the best possible hands culminated in Tilly taking part in a trial for the cutting-edge Hero Arms. And now, thanks to their success with Tilly, documented in tonight’s edition of Davina McCall’s ITV show This Time Next Year, the £10,000 hands hit the market last month.

After spotting the tell-tale dark blotches on her skin, she was rushed to hospital where Sarah received the news every parent dreads. She said: “They sat me down and said, ‘It looks like a very serious case of meningitis septicaemia and we think she will die.’ At that point they said: ‘This is the worst case of meningitis we’ve ever seen.” To help her body fight the infection Tilly had the first of ten blood 1GM Tuesday, May 8, 2018 ...............

People used to stare but now they marvel at my superhero arms Over the next seven years she had five pairs. As well as outgrowing them, the family tried to buy increasingly developed hands. But they quickly realised the existing technology could not give her what she needed. Sarah, who’s now a full-time fundraiser for the charity Meningitis Research Foundation, said: “We were just buying the same old stuff. “Every appointment I went to, I’d be saying, ‘Can we add this in? Or could we do this? Can they not open a bit more?’ It just didn’t move fast enough for her. “She still couldn’t even pick up a Fruit Shoot drink or brush her hair. But they just said, ‘Sorry, there’s just nothing else around.’” Then, two years ago, Sarah came across an advert by Open Bionics bosses, who were looking for a young amputee to help in the development of their breakthrough concept for a prosthetic. The company’s slogan is “We turn disabilities into superpowers” and the resulting Hero Arms, which cost £10,000 per hand, were fitted five months ago. Tilly has now become a role model for how being different can be cool, and she has even showed off her Hero Arms at a ComicCon convention in California. The youngster is also an ambassador for the new technology, raising awareness of what is available to other youngsters with missing limbs. Sarah said: “Our goal now is to keep pressing on to fulfil the dream that one day all kids that need prosthetics like this can get them on the NHS. “Tilly’s story shows what leaps and bounds have already been made — and what could yet be made.” l This Time Next Year, tonight, ITV, 8pm.

Married Brendan, 42, said of Jenna-Lee, a backing singer on his All Night Long tour: “She does wear a fine catsuit.” In the same interview Brendan told why he does not take wife Zoe, 36, and their two young children on tour. He added: “I’m not in bed before 2am on a show day. That’s not conducive for a family life.” The Sun on Sunday showed Brendan cosying up to Jenna-Lee outside a central London bar in the early hours. His wife is believed to have been at home at the time. Salt ‘tec’ lifesaver PEOPLE with potentially fatal high blood pressure could soon monitor their salt intake via a sensor in their mouth. For those with hypertension, too much sodium raises blood pressure and may lead to heart trouble. But boffins have developed a flexible electronic wireless sensing system to be worn in the mouth. Ultra-thin and resembling a dental plate, it reports salt consumption to a smartphone or tablet. Assistant Prof WoonHong Yeo, of the Georgia Institute of Technology, US, said: “It could help people restrict sodium intake and change diets.” Cops go electric A POLICE force hopes to save £450,000 in three years by introducing electric cars. Twenty BMW i3s go into service in Hampshire today with 20 more by the end of the year. Each will cost £1 a day to fuel, compared with £3.50 for petrol cars. Inspector Andy Tester said: “That type of saving is almost impossible to argue against, especially when you look at environmental benefits too.” The cars, which have a petrol tank back-up, will be used by investigation teams for attending interviews and conducting day-to-day administration.

Bogdan, circled, watches Maradona and Shilton shake HAND OF CLOD Maradona punch was given as a goal Lino tormented by cheat THE World Cup linesman who failed to flag Maradona’s infamous Hand of God goal against England died tormented by his error, his widow says. Bogdan Dochev even scrawled on the back of a photo of the Argentine star: “Maradona is my gravedigger.” Bulgarian Bogdan, who died a year ago aged 80, wrote it in anguish weeks after Maradona used his hand to knock the ball past England’s Peter Shilton. Bogdan’s failure to flag the clear handball meant England were knocked out of Mexico ’86 by Argentina, losing EXCLUSIVE by NEIL SYSON 2-1. He later admitted spotting the handball — which Maradona later slyly described as “the hand of God.” But Bogdan’s widow Emily claims match referee Ali Bin Nasser ordered her husband not to make any major decisions. She added: “The referee said ‘You don’t have to do any work — it will be all my calls’. I’ll never forgive that referee and I’ll never forgive Diego Maradona. “After the World Cup our life was ruined. Bogdan withdrew into himself and friends never said hello to me again.

DEAFNESS caused by loud noise can be cured by injecting a salt or sugar-based solution into the ear, scientists claim. Researchers discovered loss of hearing after a loud concert or explosion is caused by the inner ear filling up with fluid. But injecting a salt or sugar solution through the eardrum within three hours can reverse the fluid build-up, say University of Southern California experts. Professor John Oghalai said: “I can envision soldiers carrying a small bottle of this solution and using it to prevent hearing damage from a roadside bomb.” 1GM RIHLY RISQUE Tuesday, May 8, 2018 ...............

But fans shouldn’t get too excited after seeing Simon, Jay, Will and Neil back together again as their meeting was only to celebrate the show’s ten-year anniversary. SIMON BIRD revealed on TV last week: “We’re all so happy and proud of what we did with it and don’t want to spoil it by going back.” KHLOE KARDASHIAN’s boyfriend TRISTAN THOMPSON was caught cheating on the star just a week before she gave birth to their daughter, True. But that hasn’t stopped her from supporting the basketball player at his game on Saturday where she was snapped sitting in the stands – appearing to confirm the romance is still on. She was later seen for the first time with her newborn daughter, whose face she kept covered underneath a blanket. MOST kids first learn about sex in school or on TV – but WILL SMITH’s daughter WILLOW discovered the truth about the birds and the bees after finding her parents at it. In a recording of their motherdaughter series Red Table Talk, JADA PINKETT SMITH was shocked to learn her daughter had accidentally walked in on them. After Willow confessed to seeing her folks getting jiggy with it, Jada replied in a panic: “How did that happen? What did you see? Thank God I have a therapy fund put aside.” Email: email@example.com HE HAS never been shy about campaigning on controversial issues but actor BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH’s latest stand might get a few of his fellow colleagues’ backs up. The Doctor Strange and Sherlock star says blokes in the entertainment business should reject work if female counterparts are taking home less pay than them. Benedict has even suggested they ask what the actresses are being paid to ensure complete equality. He said: “Equal pay and a place at the table are the central tenets of feminism. Look at your quotas. “Ask what women are paid, and say, ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.’” In the Radio Times interview, Benedict also claimed he would be happy to turn the tables and be an objectified man in a femaledominated movie.

She’s returned to her day job as a stuntwoman and landed a role on her first Hollywood film. Sophie appears alongside Bond Girl ROSAMUND PIKE, who starred opposite 007 PIERCE BROSNAN in Die Another Day, and actor CLIVE OWEN in action film Three Seconds, which is out in August. It is believed Sophie filmed her scenes for the movie last summer, weeks after winning Bake Off. A source said: “After her bi MY TEAM: Nic for CHRIS PINE in Wonder Woman, it’s good enough for Benedict Cumberbatch. “Yeah! Definitely. Like, just in your pants? Slow pan up from the feet to the head, with sexy, screaming saxophone music in the background? “Ha ha ha, yes! So long as it was fun. I’d have to be in good shape, though. Prepare.” Benedict was talking ahead of his new Sky Atlantic TV drama Patrick Melrose, which starts on Sunday, and in which he plays the title role. The character is based on writer Edward St Aubyn, who is even more upper-class than the Harrow-educated actor. Benedict said: “He’s properly posh. Everyone goes on about the posh thing with me but despite looking it, I am not that class. “That class is landed gentry. I had to posh up for this.” I didn’t think anyone could be posher than Benedict. victory Sophie could have pursued loads of deals. Instead she focused on her stuntwoman training. Perhaps she feels she’ll have more success in film-making than baking – or it’s where she’s more in demand.” Sophie, an expert in taekwondo and equestrian stunts, admitted: “I’m not an amazing actress but I love being on set and I love the physical side of it. I love being behind the scenes.” Given how quiet she’s been since winning Bake Off, that’s probably for the best. ticker T KATY’LSOGVO ’ N I T A TH FRILLING KATY PERRY made a frilling entrance in Los Angeles in this vibrant red dress with shoulder detail.

She told Texas rocker Cade, who views his music as Christian ministry: “I know you’re a man of God but honestly I was feeling a little backslidden watching over you. “I don’t know what is coming over me – I could be your babysitter.” l Towie’s Mario Falcone and Murphy months after Celebs t bi IT was the weekend of extravagant A-list parties.

ALEXA’S ’EX APPEAL Howell Davies, Lucy Jones, Sarah Packer and Daniel Sperling AT LAST – KATE’S BEST MATES WITH THE STATES ONCE MORE KATE MOSS has spent the last 13 years missing out on A-list Hollywood events after struggling to secure a US visa. But now the supermodel has finally been allowed back into the States after resolving the issue. Problems with Kate visiting America started in 2005 after she was pictured snorting a white powder, thought to be cocaine. In 2013 US magazine Playboy even had to relocate its 60th anniversary celebrations from Los Angeles to London after realising its cover star – Kate – wouldn’t be able to attend otherwise. And it sounds like Ms Moss – who wore this leather jacket, right, with its provocative slogan painted on the back – made up for lost time by appearing at New York’s Met Gala again, having first attended the fundraising fashion bash back in 1995. Hopefully she will be on her best behaviour this time around. YOU’VE got to hand it to ALEXA CHUNG – she’s a fast mover. The model was last pictured with Swedish actor ALEXANDER SKARSGARD in March but has since moved on with her former flame MATTHEW HITT. Alexa and model Matthew, who dated in 2014, still looked like a perfect match as they were snapped sharing a giggle out in New York at the weekend, right. It’s not the first time that Alexa has gone back to an ex after she was spotted with ARCTIC MONKEYS frontman ALEX TURNER last November. She clearly has a thing for men named Alex. Hawkeye given Avenger el RENNER DID FILM INFINITY WAR SCENES BUT MIFFED STAR MISSED FINAL CUT THE new Avengers movie is called Infinity War – and I imagine that’s what JEREMY RENNER had with the creators when he saw it. The American actor, who plays Hawkeye in the franchise, shot scenes in Edinburgh last year but embarrassingly had his character completely cut from the movie. He turned down a part in Mission: Impossible 6 to be part of the Marvel blockbuster and suffered a fractured elbow and wrist on set, yet is nowhere to be seen in the latest instalment. It passed the $1billion (£737million) mark at the international box office on Saturday, having had the biggest global opening of all time the weekend before, when it pulled in £465million. But Jeremy, right as Hawkeye, has missed out on being part of its phenomenal success. A movie insider said: “Hawkeye was very much a part of the original script and Jeremy filmed scenes last year. Marvel films vast amounts of footage and it was eventually decided his character was superfluous and his sections were cut. “The only mention of him is one throwaway line where it’s explained that his character is on house arrest. “That was put in during reshoots to cover their backs after it was decided Hawkeye was to be removed.” It’s the latest blow for Jeremy’s character Hawkeye. Two years ago he moaned about the storylines for the archer. He said: “In the first Avengers . . . I was just getting to know who Hawkeye was, and then zap, I go round like a zombie, I’m like Loki’s minion. “So I’m a little frustrated, because I was so excited to figure out who Hawkeye was.” A Disney spokesman refused to comment. Director Joe Russo has promised Hawkeye will return for the concluding part of the Avengers next year. Perhaps he will have more luck then. instaglam cola Fahey, fiancée Becky Miesner expecting first baby l Frankie Cocozza marries girlfriend Bianca Go Dating stint l Taylor Swift hints at Kanye feud as she unveils snake mic ahead of tour 24 ...............

GENDER ROW HITS BOOKS 25 Filming . . . TV Simon I nursed battered refugee By NICK PARKER BBC travel host Simon Reeve helped a refugee who was beaten by Myanmar’s military while filming a new series. Simon, 45, treated the injured man at a camp of displaced Rohingya Muslims on the border with Bangladesh. The victim was caught as he went back to check on his farm in what used to be called Burma. Simon said: “He’d been very badly beaten up and threatened with his life. “His skull was fractured and he crawled back across the border. “I had to bandage up his head which was bleeding heavily then take him to a field hospital.” The man’s plight left Simon angry and upset. A military operation in Myanmar drove hundreds of thousands of ethnic Rohingya Muslims from their homes last summer. The two-part Burma With Simon Reeve starts on BBC2 next Monday.

Jon Snowflake’s Offensiveness Scale: 10/10 KIDS’ FAVES ‘ARE SEXIST’ THE Mr Men and Little Miss books are branded sexist by “snowflake” researchers. They analysed plots, characters and language in 81 of Roger Hargreaves’ tales. They found Little Misses were By SHAUN WOOLLER often given demeaning names such as Bossy and Stubborn and had to be “saved” in over half of stories. Just a third of the Mr Men need rescuing, and they have bold names like Mr Strong. They also have 12 more words to say on average, Lincoln University boffins found. Study leader Madeleine Pownall said: “Female characters were more passive and relied on being saved more.” But the Campaign for Real Education’s Chris McGovern said: “The books do no harm.

Rail fares best split TOP rail bosses have admitted passengers are better off buying two separate tickets for some single journeys as they promise an overhaul of their “frustrating system”. The Rail Delivery Group, which represents train companies and Network Rail, admitted if part of a journey is in peak hours, the entire journey is charged at that rate. Transport Focus, the independent rail watchdog, said passengers can save as much as 90 per cent by splitting tickets. A public consultation starting on June 4 aims to find ways of simplifying fare regulations.

By LAUREN PROBERT B eing versatile is something that comes in handy being a vet in Yorkshire, and this week was no exception as I was called into a wildlife park to help dart a deer. The deer needed moving to another area and the only way to safely do this was to use a tranquiliser gun to sedate the animal. In the run-up to this I had to undergo training at a shooting range. On the day, I had to hide in a trailer as the deer came to feed, I had to be very still as deer will run if they feel threatened or hear a noise. As the deer got closer, I took aim, but what happened next was staggering. They are such beautiful animals but at close quarters can be dangerous to humans. You’ll have to tune in tonight to see how I HAD TO BE this story ends.

After putting Hope under anaesthetic, we were able to look at her leg via the x-ray. This confirmed that Hope would have to undergo surgery. Elsewhere, Julian [Norton, Wright’s costar on TYV V ] paid a visit to a llama trekking centre to see Gus (above), who had a problem with his mouth. As ever with llamas it was not an easy job and Julian needed to do some assessment on him before he could confirm what was wrong. Another tricky job for Julian was stitching up a cow with a nasty cut. It’s always difficult dealing with these animals because if they panic they could break the vet’s arm. Find out how we both got on in tonight’s episode of The Yorkshire Vet. t The Yorkshire Vet is on at 8pm tonight on Channel 5 A JUDGE ordered a teenage bully to be locked up after she turned her back on him in the dock. Xena Randell, 19, had admitted assault after shoving a frail 70-yearold woman to the ground in a row at a market. Judge Anthony Potter told Randell, who has 13 previous convictions: “You are a bully. Pushing with force a woman old enough to be your grandmother is disgraceful.” When Randell, of Walsall, turned around and refused to face him at Warwick crown court he adjourned the case and remanded her in custody. He said: “She has to understand that whatever acts the juvenile court have taken, she’s in the crown court now. The crown court will not be bullied.” 2 FREE TICKETS DOOMED . . .

They both came to England 12 years ago. The friend said: “He was there on the pretence of visiting his son. But the visits left her feeling intimidated.” Skupien got a medal in the London Marathon after picking up a dropped bib number. DAVE’S JOB LOT Top jobs go to men called David while women named Rebecca have the most academic success, data claims. CROWD PLEASER . . . on a trip to Spurs’ White Hart Lane ground in London in 1959 But the publicity stunts led the film star, who claimed to have bedded US President John F Kennedy and his brother Robert, down a dark path towards SATANISM — and a curse some say was to cut her life tragically short at the age of 34. Now documentary Mansfield 66/67 — in cinemas from Friday — has examined the story behind the screen goddess’s mysterious final months. As Jayne’s career floundered in 1966 she hooked up with Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey, posing at his Black House in San Francisco. Devotees of oddball LaVey, revered by singers Kurt Cobain and Marilyn Manson, would strip naked on his altar and preach sexual freedom. Jayne became a high priestess of the Devil worshipper’s church and was rumoured to be one of his many lovers. That did not sit well with her jealous boyfriend and lawyer Sam Brody, who then got on the wrong side of “the evilest man in the world”. Black magic after son mauled by lion After supposedly falling foul of a LaVey spell, Sam was involved in six serious road accidents. The final time proved fatal, killing him, driver Ronnie Harrison and Jayne when their 1966 Buick Electra 225 ploughed into the back of a tractor. Jayne famously once said: “If you’re going to do something wrong, do it big because the punishment is the same either way.” In 1963 she became the first actress to appear naked in a major Hollywood film. When Playboy founder Hugh Hefner published nude images from the set of the movie, called Promises! Promises!, he was hauled up in court on obscenity offences. Married three times and a mother of five, Jayne cheated on all her husbands, and they were said to have cheated on her in return. Her relaxed attitude to sin was shared by LaVey. Nicknamed the Black Pope, his philosophy was: “If you’re H stt M en n in n saa see cu u dee Soo kii Blon going to do something naughty, do it and enjoy it.” Rather than telling people to follow Satan, he told them to follow their sexual desires. His daughter Zeena, 54, who turned her back on his cult three decades ago, told The Sun he treated his female followers as sex slaves, who could earn him money by sleeping with other men. Zeena said: “He was a pimp. There was a category of women he called his ‘students’, but that was a euphemism. “Basically, these were women who would give him a portion of their earnings and he would give them a supposed consultation on how to be more seductive. Then he would turn them out. They were impressionable.” But she questions whether Jayne was one of LaVey’s lovers, saying he did not like his women to have “big boobs”. Instead, Zeena thinks both her father and Jayne’ss to exploit t a Jayne wa Beatles we e trip to the most like replied: “Ja a And p complained d about her Second Com m Although “dumb blo o blonde norr She was IQ of 160. hair and a model into Girl Can’t h Handle.

It was dubbed the Pink Palace after she painted all the rooms pink and filled it with pink furnishings, including a fountain spurting pink champagne. When the scripts dried up, she turned to LaVey to get her what she wanted — more tabloid column inches. But according to the documentary, she started to take him seriously after her six-year-old son Zoltan was mauled by a lion at a theme park in 1966. She asked LaVey to use black magic to save her little boy. The Satanist is said to have headed for a mountaintop to perform an incantation. Hours later doctors said Zoltan would pull through. Jayne also sought the Devil’s help in securing custody of her year-old son Tony during her divorce from final husband Matt Cimber. She eventually won the case weeks before her death. Both her controlling lawyer boyfriend Sam and LaVey tried to take the credit. It was their battle for her devotion which is said to have led to the deadly curse. ‘I could deal with Charles Manson more rationally’ LaVey’s oldest daughter Karla, 65, once said: “Jayne wanted to get rid of (Sam) Brody, but he wouldn’t leave. “He was touching certain implements in my father’s ritual chamber and he lit a candle in the shape of a skull, and my father said no one is supposed to do that. It’s a curse.” Curse or not, Sam’s luck ran out on the night of June 29, 1967. He was killed along with Jayne and driver Ronnie when their Buick crashed. The impact ripped the top of the car off, killing Jayne instantly. It has long been rumoured that she was decapitated, but cause of death was given as massive brain trauma. Three of Jayne’s children, Zoltan, six, Mickey Jnr, eight, and three-year-old Mariska — who went on to become a successful US actress — were sleeping in the back of the car and survived. Artist Zeena, who used to practise magic and is now a Buddhist, claims it was beyond her father’s powers to cause the crash. She said: “His curses were fits of anger. This needed a focused ritual.” But she is in no doubt LaVey was a man you would not want to cross. Zeena, who also knew serial killer Charles Manson, said: “I could deal with Manson in a more rational way than I could with my father.” The film dwells on LaVey’s kooky TV persona, yet Zeena describes a “brutal” man who almost killed her mother Diane Hegarty more than once. LaVey died in 1997 aged 67, but still has followers across the globe. His book The Satanic Bible is taken seriously by occultists. His fame was achieved on the back of his association with Jayne. But while she remains a beloved screen goddess, referenced in movies such as Pulp Fiction, Zeena warns it is wrong to treat LaVey as a piece of pop culture, too. She says: “It is damaging to present my father as a playful, benign figure, because his philosophy continues to negatively affect people’s lives.” l Mansfield 66/67 (15) will be in cinemas from Friday. 30 ...............

Kurupt FM crew PIRATES PLAN TO SET SAIL CULT BBC comedy People Just Do Nothing is yet to air its fifth and final series later this year, but its creators are already planning to make a movie about the pirate radio Kurupt FM crew. And there’s a twist – as the producers of the mockumentary series plan to take the show to America. Makers Roughcut TV have signed a licensing deal with Amazon Studios so it can be made Stateside. A telly source said: “People Just Do Nothing has become a runaway success, hitting a niche comedy style. “Producers have seen US remakes of other Brit comedies, such as The Office, do really well and think a pirate radio station setting is really translatable. “Obviously the language and characters will have to be tweaked, but there’s real potential for it to mirror the popularity it’s had in the UK.” bi bit EXPLORER LE WOOD reckon VISON should be mores there adventurers on female said: “Girls don’t TV.

In EASTENDERS, Mel sees a suspicious car in the Square and, when Hunter fails to turn up at school, she fears the worst. Could Aidan be back for revenge? Elsewhere, cracks begin to show in Max and Rainie’s facade, Billy gives Honey an ultimatum about their relationship and Sonia enjoys looking after Martin, reminding daughter Bex of happier times. Meanwhile, in HOME AND AWAY, Ash is served with a summons to testify as a witness, while Martha reveals she has borderline personality disorder. Justin leaves Ava alone with Willow, but later regrets it. my verdict SHAYNE WARD’s excellent acting proved why soaps are right to tackle big issues. He managed to find a way to show businessman Aidan Connor’s decline without ever being crass or insensitive. The final shot of him sitting bi on the sofa with tears rolling down his face is testament to Corrie’s power. It’s a difficult topic that will have affected many viewers and the show should be proud for doing such a stellar job telling Aidan’s story. It’s now up to the rest of the cast to carry this sensitive storyline forwards. DISTRESS . . . final moments Road trip hip hooray GORDON, GINO & FRED GET OWN SHOW GORDON RAMSAY better have a decent sat nav – as the sweary chef‘s new ITV series will see him take a road trip with fellow cook GINO D’ACAMPO and First Dates’ FRED SIRIEIX. The Ultimate Road Trip will be his first primetime cookery show in the UK since Ramsay’s Costa Del Nightmares for Channel 4 in 2014. The new programme, which will see the trio travel to different cities to take on food challenges, was snapped up by ITV after viewers loved its festive one-off Gordon, Gino And Fred’s Great PALS . . . Ramsay, D’ACampo, Sirieix Christmas Roast and praised their unlikely bromance. A TV source said: “Gordon has had huge success across the pond and gone down a storm with US audiences. But he’s keen to get back to his roots and do something for UK fans.” Fiery Gordon has a long- running partnership with ITV, after he helped create Hell’s Kitchen for the channel in 2004. Last year, Gordon also signed for three new shows with the network, including cookery competition Culinary Genius with FERN BRITTON. ITV’s director of television, Kevin Lygo, said: “Gordon is not only a world-class chef, but a world-class TV presenter. “It’s a great thing to have him back where it all started, with some brand new shows. “He’s an irrepressible talent and we are really looking forward to his return to ITV.” I hope Gordon doesn’t get road rage, otherwise all his dialogue will be have to be bleeped out. ticker l Tribute to footie’s John Motson on BBC2, May 19 t bi THESE are the harrowing final scenes from last night’s shocking Coronation Street double-bill, which saw SHAYNE WARD’S character Aidan Connor take his own life. The actor hopes the storyline will help others suffering from mental health issues and suicidal thoughts. He tweeted: “Help is always there. Talking about your feelings can and will save lives. “I would like to thank Coronation Street and its amazing cast, crew and team for breaking the stigma and for using their platform to continue to raise awareness for male suicide.” And CATHERINE TYLDESLEY, who played Shayne’s on-screen lover Eva Price, said on Instagram: “Heartbreaking, phenomenal performance from @shaynetward tonight . . . Here’s hoping the work that yourself and our wonderful #corrie team have put into this week’s episodes get people talking and help save lives.” NOT Going Out funnyman LEE MACK always knew he’d inherited some of his great grandfather’s ability to make people laugh. But after taking part in the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? he discovered just how incredible his ancestor’s foray into comedy was. In an episode set to air this summer, Lee finds music hall entertainer Billy Mac joined one of the Pals battalions in Liverpool when war broke out and then honed his craft entertaining troops at the Battle of the Somme. He also found out his maternal grandad, Joe, was raised by his grandparents in County Mayo during the time of the Irish Civil War. It will be interesting to see the normally deadpan Lee’s reaction. l Line of Duty’s Craig Parkinson in BBC Three’s Killed By My Debt bit MIDSOMER Mu NEIL DUDGEO rders’ ons ITV isn’t payN reckenough.

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 dear deidre Head to thesun.co.uk/deardeidre to read more readers’ letters. To find how my problem page works, see thesun.co.uk/deardeidrefaqs So guilty over stripper romp Dear Deidre I BOUGHT a drink for one of the dancers in a strip club and ended up cheating on my wife. I have never done anything like that before. I have loved my wife since we met at college. She is beautiful, kind and sexy. We soon fell head over heels for each other and got married when we were only 20. We are now 22 and live in a rented flat but are saving for the deposit on a house of our own. I came home from work early one afternoon and my wife’s sister was there. There were bags of designer clothes and shoes everywhere. They had clearly been out on a spending spree. My wife’s sibling is 28 and her husband has a great job. They never seem to be short of money, while we are struggling to save quickly enough. I was furious. After my sister-inlaw left I had a big argument with my wife. She insisted that she had the right to buy herself what she called “a few things” but it added up to hundreds of pounds. I was topic4today SEX therapy may sound scary but it involves chatting with an understanding person who has constructive suggestions. And 93 per cent of couples who saw a Relate therapist found it helped. For my e-leaflet How Sex Therapy Helps email email@example.com. firstname.lastname@example.org angry because I have stopped going out with my mates to try to save money and there she was buying things she does not need. I left the house and went to a strip club. One of the dancers came over to my table and asked me to buy her a drink. One thing led to another and we went out to the back of the club and had sex in a room there. I felt terrible afterwards and just went home. The next morning my wife said how sorry she was. She said she knew she was wrong but she just got carried away and would take some of the things back. I do not know what to do now. I would die rather than do it again. People say honesty is the best policy but I am terrified of losing my wife if I tell her what I did. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: You made a terrible mistake but what matters is that you learn from it and never repeat it. If there is no chance that your wife will find out, ask yourself what your marriage would gain from confessing to her. It would ease your conscience but it would destroy your wife’s trust and peace of mind, and that could cost you your marriage. It would be more constructive to look at your relationship and work out how to avoid arguments such as that. Have an honest talk together about money and draw up firm figures on how much you are saving and how much you can each allocate to your own spending. If there is any chance that your wife will find out from someone else, though, it would be best to tell her yourself first. She may find it in herself to forgive you and my e-leaflet Cheating – Can You Get Over It can help, whether you confess or not. Dear Deidre I HAVE made mistakes and push people away and now I feel so lonely. I am a single gay man of 23. When I came out to my parents, they told me it was disgusting, horrible and wrong and they disowned me. I moved away and met my now ex-boyfriend. He swore he loved me but he was having casual sex with other men. Then he told me had caught HIV and tests showed he had passed it on to me. I am still in Dear Deidre MY boyfriend cuddles up with me but, lately, he does not want sex. We used to have lots of amazing action when we got together eight months ago. We are 29. Whenever I try it on with him these days, though, he turns away. I stopped trying, thinking I would wait for him to instigate it but he never does. I have seen some of his ex-girlfriends and they are all different from me. They are all very skinny. Now I worry that CALLUM’S BAD HABIT: DAY 2 CALLUM IS SO CUTE, I CAN’T BELIEVE MY LUCK. HE’S ONLY GOT ONE BAD HABIT – HE SMOKES the problem is that I do not have a nice body. I tried speaking to him about it but he shut down. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: Your boyfriend liked your body enough to get together with you and have sex with you. He still likes to cuddle, so your body isn’t the problem. It is devastating for a man to lose interest in sex but raise the subject again, telling him you love him.

I am 35, my ex is 37. I already had my son, who is nine, when we got together. We later had our daughter, who is three. Then my ex’s older brother got divorced and everything changed. His family started telling him he could do better than me, because I work part-time and he could be with a career woman who earns mega bucks. He said our family holiday was too expensive and cancelled it. Then he immediately booked a lads’ holiday without telling me. I realised that I could never be happy with him and ended it. Now he and his family ignore my son but spoil our daughter rotten. My boy is confused and hurt. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: You cannot change your ex’s attitude or his family’s but you can tell him how hurtful he and his family are being to your son who is innocent in this situation.

I am 39, she is 34. Our sons are ten and eight. I ran a successful business and we had a good life with no money worries. But I sensed something was not right and she eventually admitted to cheating. We decided to try again but in the end she left me, taking the kids and all our money. I now live in a tiny flat but still do things as a couple and as a family. We are both single and I’ve asked her to try again but she just tells me to move on. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: If she insists she will not get back with you, you cannot make her. You can only accept it. Being very closely involved with her is keeping you tied to her emotionally and making it harder for you. Of course you still need to carry on being a father but also need to get your own separate social life going again.

Above, lad as a newborn weighing just 1lb 10oz The 27-year-old was admitted to hospital to await a miscarriage. When she did not go into early labour, she was advised to terminate the pregnancy.

It’s astonishing doctors said there was nothing they could do, yet something so simple may have saved his life.” Vital for survival ‘Less than one per cent chance of survival’ Full-time mum Cally and partner Jason Clark, 26, an IT manager, already had Oliver, nine, and Holly, five, when they found out they would be parents again. Having already suffered four miscarriages, Cally was terrified when she started bleeding early in the pregnancy and doctors diagnosed a blood clot in the womb. To not tempt fate, superstitious Cally avoided taking photos of her bump. At 16 weeks, the bleeding seemed to have stopped. But just two weeks later, Cally was folding washing at home when she realised her waters had broken. At hospital, a consultant told her the baby could not be saved and to expect a miscarriage. She says: “Jason and I clung to each other and cried. “It was heartbreaking to think our baby would soon be gone, especially as I could still feel him moving inside me. “He was too small to survive labour. They called it a miscarriage but, to me, it didn’t feel like that.” It was then she realised she had no pictures with her baby bump, so she got out her phone. She recalls: “I cradled my bump and was saying goodbye to him as the picture was taken. I was so upset that this was going to be our first and last ever photo.” By the next morning there was still no sign of labour and a scan showed her son’s heart was still beating. She says: “I was told a termination ‘I had nothing to lose so I just kept sipping’ I saved my baby drinking15 pints of water a day was the best option because they said he had a less than one per cent chance of survival with my waters having broken so early. They said the small amount of fluid was not enough for him to survive.” Desperately seeking information, Cally headed to Facebook and found a group called Little Heartbeats, which supports women who suffer from pre-term pre-labour rupture of membranes, known as PPROM. Cally says: “When I read that other mums believed drinking more water had helped, I knew straight away I couldn’t give up on my baby. “I kept researching and read that the more the mother drinks, the more the baby urinates which increases the amniotic fluid, so it made sense that drinking more might help replenish some of the waters at least. “I had nothing to lose so thought I would try.” Doctors accepted her decision but warned there was a high chance of infection. Following advice on the Little Heartbeats website she rested as much as possible and drank 15 pints — nine litres — of water a day. The average recommendation is to drink six to eight glasses (1.2 litres). She says: “It wasn’t easy drinking that much but I had to try for our baby, so I forced it down.” To her and Jason’s delight, their unborn son continued to grow. Cally says: “I was desperate to get to 24 weeks, which is when Leo would be recognised as viable and given medical assistance to stay alive, so I just kept sipping away.” At 24 weeks she was given steroid injections to boost Leo’s lungs. Finally, at 28 weeks, contractions started and Cally gave birth to Leo at Royal Bolton Hospital on July 16, 2016. He was unresponsive and needed resuscitating but kept fighting and was finally allowed home a week before his due date in October. By then he was a healthy 6lb 1oz. Now just a few months short of his second birthday, he has been given a clear bill of health. Cally says: “All mums think their kids are a miracle but Leo really is. “Don’t get me wrong, he’s a little terror sometimes, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.” A spokeswoman for Little Heartbeats said: “Many mothers we support who have experienced PPROM believe that drinking water has helped. “But tragically we acknowledge this might not always be the case, as there are many contributing factors and each pregnancy is unique, which is why we continue to fundraise for more research.” l For more information about Little Heartbeats, visit little-heartbeats.org.uk.

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 CRITICS and audiences are loving new movie Tully, which centres on overwhelmed mum-of-three Marlo, played by Charlize Theron, below. Marlo is offered, by her wealthy brother, a night nanny for her newborn baby – and her life is changed as a result. But did Fabulous Daily’s NIKKI WATKINS, mum of one-year-old Wilf, inset bottom, find Tully a moving insight into the world of new mums? Or is it a motherhood misfire? LIFE with a newborn is TOUGH. It is the hardest thing I have ever done – and never has this rollercoaster been so honestly portrayed as in Tully. There is no Tinseltown glitter sprinkled over Charlize Theron’s portrayal of frayed mum-of-three Marlo. It is raw and very real. With its hints of pre and post-natal depression, there is an important message in this entertaining movie. Theron, herself a mother of two, piled on weight for the role and her candid performance taps into things new mums won’t know are universal. I am often left biting my fist in fury at others’ lack of sensitivity – like “helpful” older ladies in cafes guilt-tripping you about the caffeine you are drinking and the immaculate post-pregnancy women who maintain they went to the gym every day until their little miracle was born. Tully has them all. Often in movies, maternity wards are sanitised areas where beautifully coiffed goddesses painlessly pop out new life. Extreme highs and lows Not so in Tully. Her broken waters leak down Marlo’s leg. She suffers the brutal throes of labour and the horror of cracked nipples. It is searingly honest and excruciating to watch, as if whipped from WhatsApp chats with my mum-mates. Mums everywhere will feel empathy for Marlo when she emerges from the maternity unit and her husband says he is going away. Her eyes fill with tears at the prospect of facing this monumental struggle alone. I felt that moment in the pit of my stomach. The portrayal of blundering dad Drew is also brilliantly acted as a hapless coparent plugged into his Xbox, oblivious to the chaos around him The film hits hard by highlighting the extreme highs and lows of parenting. In a scene that will stay with me a very long time, Marlo is tussling with the grim monotony of night-time nappy changes. This quickly morphs into a shot of her baby’s tiny hand wrapped around hers. The rollercoaster of being a new mum has never been captured so accurately – those leaps from the souldestroyingly gross to blissful feelings of wonder. It tells an important message – that mums cannot do it all alone. It is the most compelling insight into motherhood I have ever seen, warts, nappies and all. l Tully is out now.

The former Bake Off judge slammed schools for failing to prepare kids for flying the nest, saying: “Every child, when they leave school, should be able to create ten dishes they enjoy that are healthy, aren’t expensive and are nutritionally good. But schools have let go of their home economics departments.” We asked kids’ cookery writer Annabel Karmel to provide her top ten recipes for youngsters. Then we roped in Tara Matthews, 45, from Romford, Essex, and her children Remi, 13, and Mason, 15, to try some of them. Tara, who works in promotions and is married to surveyor Andrew, also 45, says: “I encourage my children to cook but busy families don’t always get time in the week. “It’s really important for them to know how to cook a By KATE JACKSON few recipes before they leave home and that they understand it’s cheaper to cook than getting takeaways. “We’re lucky that Remi is doing a GCSE in cookery but that’s not possible in all schools. She’s good at shepherd’s pie, brownies and rhubarb crumble. “My son is getting more independent and can do bacon sandwiches and pancakes.” Annabel, inset below, adds: “It’s important to remember that cooking from scratch doesn’t have to mean producing elaborate meals. “Get your teen in the kitchen to help cook these foodie feasts and wait to see that wonderfully proud smile develop after they tuck into a meal they have prepared themselves.” Here are ten recipes teens should be able to master — plus ratings out of five on how tasty and straightforward they are to make. l FIND more inspiration and recipe advice at annabelkarmel.com. 5.

One-pot noodles MASON says: REMI says: I DON’T do a lot of cooking at the moment but I am trying to learn a few things. I think the one-pot noodles sound like the easiest one for me to start with. I really like the idea of the chicken and potato pie and the chicken curry. I prefer home-cooked food and these look pretty straightforward. I’m sure with a bit of practice I could manage them. And they will be cheaper than getting ready meals and take-aways. I ENJOYED the meatball pasta bake. It’s similar to other recipes I’ve cooked before. It was straightforward and delicious. I’ve done crumbles before and anyone could do this apple one, even if you’ve never baked a pudding before. The enchiladas sound tasty and I only marked them down because there are a lot of steps. Perhaps it’s one to do when you’ve practised with the others. The one-pot noodles isn’t one I’d eat but it’s the easiest for someone who never cooks. 6 7 6 7 (Makes: 1 portion) YOU NEED: 70g fine Chinese-style dried egg noodles or straight- to-wok thread fine noodles; 125ml chicken stock; 1½ tsp dark soy sauce; 25g frozen peas; 35g drained tinned or frozen sweetcorn; 50g chicken, cooked and shredded; ½ tsp cornflour; 1 tsp cold water.

Bring to a simmer and cook for two minutes. In a small cup, mix the cornflour with the water. Add to the pan and stir over the heat for one minute, until the liquid thickens slightly. Add the noodles and mix everything together. When the noodles are heated through, transfer to a bowl to serve. Taste: 10. Apple crumble 6. Tasty chicken & potato pie (Makes 4 portions) YOU NEED: 500g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks; 25g butter; 100ml milk; 50g Cheddar cheese, grated; 25g butter; 1 leek, thinly sliced; 1 large or 2 small shallots, finely chopped; 25g plain flour; 300ml chicken stock; 100ml double cream; 300g shredded cooked chicken; 75g frozen peas; 1 tbsp chopped parsley; 1 tbsp lemon juice; Salt and pepper. METHOD: Pre-heat the oven to 180C/Gas 6. Put the potatoes in cold salted water, bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for ten to 15 minutes until tender. Drain and mash with butter, milk and the grated cheeses. Melt the butter in a saucepan and cook Ease: the leek and shallots gently for eight to ten minutes until soft but not coloured. Stir in the flour and cook for one minute, then stir in the stock a little at a time, to make a smooth sauce – you may find it easier to do this off the heat. Stir in the cream, then cook, stirring until the sauce just comes to the boil. Stir in the chicken, peas and parsley, then remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and season to taste. Spoon into a 1.5-litre dish and top with mash. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes and then finish off for a few minutes under the grill until golden brown. It’s a good idea to place the dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips.

Melt the butter in a large pan, drain the apples, reserving the orange juice, and saute the sliced apples with the sugar for about eight Ease: minutes. Then stir in 2 tbsp of the reserved orange juice. Meanwhile, to prepare the topping, whiz the flour, salt, butter and sugar in a food processor for a few seconds until it resembles breadcrumbs and then stir in the ground almonds. Alternatively, mix together the flour, salt and sugar and then rub in the butter using your fingers.

Alternatively, you could make four individual portions in ramekins. Taste: TAROT CARDS KNEW MY LIFE By KRIS HALLENGA I VISITED a clairvoyant recently. You know, a psychic who somehow knows where you are heading in life. Now, I’m not necessarily a believer in such wizardry and I’d never been moved to see a psychic before. But I’d heard some insane stories about the stuff she’d come up with for other people and I thought: “Why the heck not?” She used tarot cards to read my life. I gave nothing away before the reading so she had no idea I had cancer, didn’t know I was a twin, nothing. Yet the way she described me and how I tackle certain situations was spot-on. How my sister Maren and I differ was really accurate and she brought up some bizarre truths about my parents too. There would have been no way she could have known that. But of course my more sceptical mind wondered whether coincidence was at play too. It was the cancer thing I was obviously most curious about. Health didn’t really come up . . . only that I need to start doing more regular yoga. She was convinced I was going to fall in love in the not-too-distant future. She somehow knew I was single. Could it perhaps have been my cat-emblazoned fleece jumper? Load of baloney She told me the letter C was coming up really strong. She wasn’t sure whether it represented his name, where he was from or if he might be Canadian. My mind went to cancer. It’s not a conventional relationship but it’s the only relationship I see myself having, although I didn’t let on. The very last card of the deck was the dreaded Death – and that is when I lost it. I must explain, though, I was exhausted at that moment from a couple of long work days. The Death card in tarot actually rarely represents physical death, and more a new beginning. My rational mind couldn’t comprehend that, though, and I think I may have needed a cry. However, looking back, it seemed poignant to have drawn the card at the end, as if everything else had to come first – even the falling in love bit and the fact she said my twin is going to be pregnant within the next nine months. You might think this is all a load of baloney and actually, I am still not sure how I really feel about it. Whether I or you believe in some higher power controlling everything is irrelevant. It’s more the power and comfort in believing in something – knowing I, and you, can still go on with life with the same kind of conviction and purpose as ever. It was kind of handy that the very next day I was heading to Canada on a little holiday . . . so who knows? I might even find my Canadian husband here. I will keep you posted. 38 ...............

Is this the UK of today? £50 LETTER I didn’t have my own bed until I was in my teens and only got one as my sister left home to get married. After many years in my parents’ bed, I had to sleep in a cot with my knees bent — but that was 70 years ago, just after the war, and times were hard. I never thought that in this day so many children would have no bed of their own to sleep in. It’s so sad. A big well done to The Sun and to Judge Rinder, who is supporting your Beds For Kids campaign, for bringing it to our attention. ROSALIN HILLIER Wooburn Green, Bucks THESE children who do not have a bed to sleep in should not be forgotten. Help from the Government should be a priority.

There are not enough public broadcasts to show youngsters what will happen if they carry or use a knife. There should be adverts that show real prison life, where inmates can be locked up for 23 hours a day and have to queue for food. We have to let them know the consequences or these crimes will continue. WHY do we have an outbreak of shootings and stabbings if the number of police officers is OK, as the Government says? In less than two weeks, all manner of police officers will be pulled on to duty as Prince Harry gets married. The greater the status of the people, the more police get assigned and the great unwashed get a service on the cheap. It’s disgusting. This Government has no clue what it is like for those of us who aren’t millionaires with a country pile. BARRY JOHNSON Hornchurch, Essex THE worrying thing about British justice is the inconsistency and the pointless “concurrent” sentences which do nothing by way of punishment. Saul Linton received a prison sentence of 59 months for a protest that stopped trains, yet Andre King, who was 16 when he killed a man with a single punch, was locked up for just 39 months. We see an alarming rise in crime across the board yet shoplifters and scooter criminals mustn’t be chased in case they fall and get hurt. The UK is becoming a villain’s paradise.

He said: “To win a Group 1 is massive for me. I still have to pinch myself it actually happened!” a preparation for the Arc.” Enable had been as short as 4-7 for the Epsom Group 1 next month. The shock news means Gosden’s other superstar Cracksman has been cut to 11-4 favourite from 9-2 for the Arc by Ladbrokes who pushed Enable out to 4-1. Aidan O’Brien’s brilliant 2,000 Guineas hero Saxon Warrior - evens to win the Derby - is next at 8s. Ladbrokes’ Nicola McGeady said: “Everyone hopes Enable will come back fighting fit and ready for the Arc. “However news of the setback spread fast and we have seen more money for Cracksman. He is the new favourite for Longchamp.” 4.15 1 2 3 4 5 6 B105433172P00P9P/5- MARES HANDICAP HURDLE (4); winner £5,458; 2m 4f. (6 runners) APACHE SONG 19 J Eustace 5-12-1 ..........

She improved when fitted with a hood for the first time on her handicap debut at Market Rasen in March. That was her first run over 2m4f and she will love to see some sun. YOU don’t have to look into the future to see MYSTIC MEG (2.20 Thirsk, nb) has a great chance. Her only start to date came when second to the smart Magic Lily who went on to place in the Group 1 Fillies' Mile. That maiden looks strong and she is the type to have improved over the winter. MANGO CHUTNEY (5.25 Thirsk, treble) looks tasty. He flew home on his seasonal reappearance to finish second, beaten just a head. Off the same mark and at a track where he has gone well at before he should be bang there.

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 1GM ROUGH RIDE . . . Woods is struggling to find fairways Tiger is driving me mad BUTCH SPEED RAP IN THE POO CORNER I WANT TO FIGHT LOO! in KEEPS HIS EAGLE EYE ON association THE WORLD OF GOLF with JASON DAY was wobbling in the final round BIRDIE of the Wells Fargo — but he set up his win OF THE by hitting the flagstick with a seven iron at WEEK the 223-yard par-3 17th to leave 2ft. NICK WATNEY had a chance to pile the pressure on Jason Day but he dumped his tee shot into the water at the long 15th and had to settle for a tie of second. BOGEY OF THE WEEK to return — if we’re invited.” SAY “We’d love Charley Hull hopes to play again THAT at England’s GolfSixes. The women’s teams lit up the AGAIN event, so an invite should be in the post. By BEN HUNT TOTO WOLFF is not looking to cheat on his “wives” at Mercedes by trading them in for a newer model. Both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are out of contract at the end of this season and have yet to agree new terms. Mercedes also have Esteban Ocon and George Russell waiting in the wings should either of the current drivers depart. It leaves boss Wolff with a potential headache of trying to find seats for his current stable of stars. He said: “We are not looking at drivers outside Mercedes because we have to give support to our guys, that is the priority. “It is like if you are happy with your wife, you don’t look elsewhere!” By IAN GORDON TIGER WOODS must forget the need for speed if he is going to crown his comeback with more victories. TURKISH AIRLINES flies to more countries than any other airline — and carries golf clubs free. Toto’s hits ’n missus Froome to hit peak David Facey That is the opinion of his former coach Butch Harmon, who says Woods should stop trying to launch tee shots like Exocet missiles and concentrate on finding the target instead. Harmon (below) pointed out that Woods, 42, keeps boasting about how his clubhead speed of more than 129mph is the fastest on the PGA Tour and quicker than when he first turned professional 22 years ago. But Harmon’s point about him sacrificing accuracy for extra oomph is borne out by the statistics — Woods is 206th when it comes to finding fairways, hitting the short stuff just 50.83 per cent of the time off the tee. That compares to 76.80 per cent for PGA Tour leader Henrik Stenson, who regularly reaches for the three wood rather than driver to make sure he is in prime position to go for the greens. Harmon, who has been commentating for Sky on the Players Championship for more than 20 years, says Woods will have no chance of winning at Sawgrass for the third time this week unless he slows things down. He explained: “If you watch him, his swing looks a lot better. But I think he’s still enamoured with distance with the driver. “If he were to back off the speed and not try to hit it so far, just try and put it in play, he would have a better chance of winning. “Every interview we hear he talks about his speed and how far he’s driving compared to the young guys. “But I think if he gets off of that and just gets back to putting the ball in play with the driver and accept whatever distance it is — because he still hits a long way — I think he would play more consistently. “He has won two times at Sawgrass but he’s not going to contend again unless he can put the ball in play off the tee.” HAMILTON . . . contract Briggs on toilet as Fury called By OSCAR PAUL TYSON FURY lined up a heavyweight clash with tlemanly.” Fury has not fought Shannon Briggs while the since his stunning victory over American was on the loo! Wladimir Klitschko when he The Gypsy King broadcast himself live on Instagram and invited the veteran bruiser to join him. But to Fury’s surprise The Cannon, who lost to Lennox Lewis in 1998, was rather preoccupied. However, it did not take long for the two to agree to a September showdown. When Briggs, 46, got involved on the live chat, Fury asked: “How are you doing? Having a shave, are you?” Briggs replied: “No, I’m having a s**t. But I’m ready to fight champ — let’s make it happen.” Fury (below), 29, then said: “September. That’s what I’m saying. “I will give you a fight, but I don’t want you to make any excuses after you beat me up and knock me out. “When you KO me, I don’t want you to start celebrating up and down the ring. “I want you to be very gen- grabbed the WBA Super, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles in November 2015. He was suspended the following October by the British Boxing Board of Control due to “anti-doping and medical issues”. The undefeated Manchester fighter accepted a backdated two-year anti-doping ban and had his licence reinstated in January. Fury announced his comeback for next month but is yet to name his opponent. And in the same video on social media, Fury also called out Tony Bellew, who beat David Haye at the weekend for a second time. He added: “I don’t think he could beat me with both hands behind my back. “Tony, after I knock you out in one round, I’ll give you a job cleaning my shoes.” Bell tolls for Fury TONY BELLEW has vowed to knock out Tyson Fury. The Liverpool heavyweight, 35, stopped David Haye in the fifth at the O2 on Saturday, but hinted he is ready to call time on his career. Yet he has been tempted by the prospect of fighting Fury, the returning former world heavyweight champ. Despite being six inches smaller than 6ft 9in Fury, Bellew says the 29-year-old Gypsy King would NOT last the distance. Bellew told talkSPORT: “Tyson is back on the scene and of course I would fight him. “But he doesn’t want to come anywhere near someone like me. “I believe I could knock out Tyson Fury. “Everyone would laugh or say I don’t have a chance, given the size of him, but timing is everything in boxing and styles make fights. “I am a lot harder to hit than he is and I am quicker than him. I also hit hard.” CHRIS FROOME aims to blow the Giro d’Italia wide open when the race resumes in Sicily today. The Team Sky rider is in 19th spot, 38 seconds down on Australia’s Rohan Dennis after the opening three stages in Israel. But the next three will be hilly — and include the Giro’s first summit test on Thursday on the slopes of Mount Etna. And Froome, 32, said: “I haven’t thought back to the last time I was trying to make up time but I’m not giving up. “The majority of the race — all the racing in the mountains — is still to come so a lot can happen.” Froome crashed on a practice ride in Jerusalem then lost 37sec in the opening time-trial. Hundred ’n debaty By JACK ROSE COUNTY cricketers and the ECB will today debate plans for the new 100-ball competition. Representatives from the 18 counties and senior figures from the Professional Cricketers’ Association will meet ECB chiefs at Edgbaston in what promises to be a lively discussion. Since the ECB unveiled its idea to replace Twenty20 cricket with ‘The Hundred’, reaction has been mixed. The idea to conclude each innings with a tenball over, possibly using more than one bowler, is particularly controversial. PCA chief Daryl Mitchell said he was “open-minded” but the PCA noted “a lack of clarity regarding the new tournament”. SNOOKER SPECIAL L FAMILY JEWELS! Willy-ams: My wife stopped me quitting BRAVE Mark Williams won a stunning third world title — then true to his word he stripped off. CHEST THE BEST . . . Williams whips away his towel and (left) celebrates with wife Jo and kids season — with this a fourth title. And he owes much of his ‘nude dawn’ to coach Steve Feeney and his SightRight technique that has transformed the lefthander’s fortunes. This showpiece between two of the ‘Class of 1992’ had captured the imagination, with the third of the Holy Trinity that turned pro 26 years ago — Ronnie O’Sullivan — watching on. In a tight contest Williams missed a pink in frame 33 and Higgins brilliantly cleared up to peg it back to 17-16. Undeterred Williams fired a 70 break only to then fluff an easy brown, which gave his rival one more chance. But he gathered himself superbly to edge over the line. Defeat was a huge blow for Higgins, 42, who lost in the final for the second year in a row after blowing a 10-4 lead against Mark Selby 12 months ago. He had been hoping to win a fifth world title and equal the Crucible trophy tally of O’Sullivan. He said: “Obviously I am disappointed but it was great to play in such an occasion in front of this crowd and Mark is a brilliant champion. “The red he potted at the end was ridiculous and it was one of the best breaks under pressure. I didn’t want to lose with a session to spare and at 14-7 that looked possible. “I tried to put him under pressure tonight but it just wasn’t enough.” This was the oldest Crucible final in history, the combined age of the pair coming to 85 — two more than the Reardon v Perrie Mans final (83) in 1978.

It’s a bit cold in here! “But if I never win another tournament I won’t care, I have done something I thought I’d never do.” Renaissance man Williams, who almost quit last summer, beat four-time winner Higgins in a Sheffield thriller described as “the best final” by legend Steve Davis. Williams — who pocketed a huge £425,000 cheque — became the oldest winner of the Betfred World Championship since compatriot Ray Reardon in 1978. He added: “Last year I wasn’t even here but in the caravan having a beer having failed to qualify. “My game was c**p and I was seriously thinking of giving up but my wife Jo convinced me to carry on. “I don’t think she wanted me in the house 24 hours a day! “So it is unbelievable to be winning this again 15 years after the last time.” Incredibly, none of Williams’ three kids were born the last time he lifted the trophy 15 years ago — the biggest gap between world titles.

The Portuguese coach, players and staff paraded the Sky Bet Championship trophy through Wolverhampton yesterday in front of tens of thousands of fans. And Nuno, who has coached big European clubs such as Valencia and Porto, said: “I have experienced many moments but this is really special for everybody, it means a lot. “It’s about the players. They had a task and they helped each other to achieve that.” Ruben Neves is keen to play for Wolves in the Prem, despite speculation over his future. The midfielder said: “I came here to help the club and the club has helped me. I’m happy.” By PHIL CADDEN Happy Ether after A survival Blue-print IS THE SQUAD GOOD ENOUGH? CARDIFF boss Neil Warnock is confident. He claims that “after the top six in the Prem ier League, anybody can beat anybody on their day”.

WHO WILL SHOCK THE PREM SOL BAMBA, 33, has been ? a man-mountain for the Bluebirds in central defence. Warnock has branded him “a colossus” and quipped he would not swap the Ivorian for anyone in the Prem, including the world’s most expensive defender, Liverpool’s £75million man Virgil van Dijk.

It’s a very hard promotion with Cardiff. industry to be in and a very hard when Neil Warnock picked up Yet just four years ago he almost quit football and returned to the Philippines after being released by Fulham and failing to find a new club for FIVE MONTHS. Being out of work forced keeper Etheridge to sell his house and car to pay to train at Charlton, before moving to Oldham where he slept on a mate’s sofa. Reaching the top has been made all the sweeter, given he has done it the hard way via the lower divisions, only joining the Bluebirds from League One Walsall last summer. Etheridge, 28, said: “I was close to the goalkeeping coach at Charlton and just trained as hard as I could industry to stay in. It’s all in the past now and will never leave me. It has made me a lot stronger and is maybe why I am here today. “I’d sold my house and car and was about a week away from going back home. “I got offered a contract at Oldham, I think in the December. I took it and was living on a mate’s sofa, but that’s what you have to do. “From then on, Charlton took me in the transfer window Etheridge for a song last summer, save for a few Cardiff fans wondering if the 59-cap Philippines keeper would be good enough. But as with Junior Hoilett, Sol Bamba and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Etheridge proved another freebie masterstroke by Warnock. The ex-Chelsea academy keeper (left) played 47 times this season, recording 19 clean sheets as City finished second behind Wolves. Asked if he imag- ined 15 years ago at Chelsea that making the top flight would have happened sooner, he said: “When you’re an academy player you definitely feel it’s never going to end. “I went from Chelsea to Fulham — two Premier League teams at the time — and was sitting on the bench for the Europa League and Premier League and you don’t think it is going to finish. “A lot of people see the highs but not the lows. But I’ve always believed in my ability and that’s why I got through my rough patch. It has definitely been an emotional rollercoaster and I’ve massive respect for the manager here for taking me on. “He obviously saw potential and, hopefully for the supporters, I’ve repaid them. We are now Premier League players.” VINCENT TAN has finally admitted he was wrong to change Cardiff’s colours from blue to red. The Bluebirds owner rebranded the club in 2012 before making a U-turn back to their traditional blue in January 2015 after fans protested. Cardiff sealed their Premier League return on Sunday after a four-year absence and the Malaysian businessman has now publicly acknowledged his mistake. He said: “My message to our fans is thank you very much for continuing to support the club. “I made a mistake by changing the colour and I’ve reverted back to blue and rectified it. “There will be no more tinkering with the colours. “I feel the club is united again. We are all pulling in the same direction. The board, the team, the fans. “The feeling of making the Premier League is amazing — the second time around is better than the first.” Boss Neil Warnock will ask for half a dozen new players as he strengthens over the summer. Yet Tan claims Cardiff will be cautious in this summer’s transfer market. He said: “We’ll spend wisely. We’d like to learn from Leicester and from what Burnley have done. ‘Maybe Crystal Palace and others — they stay in the league. They don’t buy players for ridiculous money that makes it very difficult for the owner. “You can do it without paying the daft money.” Little bit of bother BOLTON’S Mark Little was breathing a huge sigh of relief yesterday after his terrific show of generosity almost backfired. Bolton avoided relegation from the Championship with a dramatic late comeback in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest. And defender Little, 29, was so ecstatic that he was moved to give a fan his jacket. But Little later realised his wallet and wedding ring were still in it. The former Peterborough and Bristol (left) City right-back pleaded on Twitter for the fan to return them. He was reunited with his wallet and it is understood his wedding ring has also been found and will be handed back today. Bolton were on the brink of relegation as they trailed Forest 2-1. But two goals in the last three minutes saved them. 2GM CHELSEA’S LATE SURGE E TOP QUATRE Tuesday, May 8, 2018 ............... 51 IPSWICH could TONY MOWBRAY P fears Blackburn look to former P could be heading for Spurs and Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood to take charge.

The Wales midfielder (right), 28, is attracting interest from top-flight trio West Ham, Newcastle and Swansea. As revealed by SunSport last month, promoted Wolves are also keen on Allen — one of the few shining lights in the Potters’ dismal season. La Liga outfit Sevilla also retain a strong interest after missing out on him when he quit Liverpool in 2016. Stoke’s demotion to the Championship was confirmed by a 2-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday. But despite dropping into the second tier, they would want good money for Allen, who cost £13m in the summer of 2016. Allen signed a five-year deal but there was no relegation clause so Paul Lambert’s men will not accept a cut-price fee.

And Jurgen Klopp’s Kop team are now just three points ahead having played a game more. Arsenal were experts at mounting late surges to scrape into the competition for years while Giroud was at the Emirates. And the Frenchman wants to repeat the trick with his new club. He said: “I can be the lucky charm for the Champions League race in the final sprint. “We don’t have this situation in our hands but I have experience about these end-of-season situations. “We need to give everything and wait for the other results. “I’m confident because if we play with that kind of mentality, we can have nice things.” Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat at West Brom and Chelsea’s 1-0 win over the Reds has reignited the top-four race. But if Giroud pulls this one off, it will surpass any finish he managed with the Gunners. A month ago Chelsea looked out of it. Spurs play Newcastle and Leicester at home in their final fixtures and Liverpool host Brighton on Sunday. With the pressure on you would back those teams to get the points required. Then again, you would have thought Spurs would have beaten West Brom on Saturday. All Chelsea can do is their bit by beating Huddersfield at home tomorrow and Newcastle away on the final day.

City allowed Hammers’ top brass into the directors’ box on Saturday in what appeared to be a gesture of goodwill between the feuding clubs. But the cold war has been reopened after the bigwigs were placed at the back of the VIP area in rows 11 and 12 — instead of at the front where the seats are better quality with more leg room and padding. A Hammers insider said: “Some Leicester fans said it showed a lack of class.” Relations have been strained since West Ham vice-chair Karren Brady’s comments about City’s Thai owner buying £500,000 of wine after deciding to sack former boss Claudio Ranieri. West Ham apologised and feared they would be banned from the directors’ box entirely. They were allowed in but the positioning of their seats has been seen as a snub.

And that time is now for Swansea and their colourful manager, Carlos Carvalhal, as they meet Southampton tonight in a survival shootout. When Carvalhal arrived in South Wales at the end of December, his madcap analogies were fun, original and made everyone laugh. Despite the club’s league position, people were talking about him, rather than about relegation from the Premier League. There were stories about By BEN HUNT swimming with the fishes and being able to see the safety of the shore. Then after one game against Burnley, when he finished the match with four attackers and a 1-0 win, he spoke about “throwing all the meat on the barbecue” — essentially a new take on all or bust. Carvalhal was comical and it was light relief after the gloomy end to Paul Clement’s spell in charge. But it also masked the perilous situation Swansea faced, as they looked certain for relegation from the top flight. Whether it was an intentional distraction tactic or not, it worked as Swansea kept on winning. But just like his time at Sheffield Wednesday, the wins dried up and the pressure has returned. The analogies were not so funny any more. Now, he needs to get serious if the Swans are to stay up. The Welsh club face relegation rivals Saints tonight and, fortunately, Carvalhal is in no laughing mood. He said: “All the time it is serious. I don’t need to scream at the players to concentrate. “If I must scream, I scream but I am not like that all the time with them. We must keep organised, we must play with confidence and keep emotional control. “It is not a time to scream. “It is a time to be focused and do the proper things. This is an important game and we must not make mistakes. This is the way. “I believe in myself. I believe in my players. My target is to try to get them to believe in themselves and believe in their colleagues.” You would think Swansea would not need any added motivation to stay in the Premier League.

Former Juventus ace Lemina, 24, said: “The club have given me everything to perform and I need to give back with all my heart. “When you join a team I don’t think you can expect that you will be fighting relegation. “But now this is our situation and we have to just keep going and work a lot to save the club. “For me it is a good pressure because the fans expect a lot from us and we have to give it back. “The main thing is to save the club and every single one of us knows that.” Southampton face a daunting final-day visit from champions Manchester City so manager Mark Hughes knows it is crucial his side win in South Wales. Hughes said: “We’ve got two games left and everybody is writing the Manchester City one off. “We’ll give that one TRAIN OF THOUGHT . . . Saints players focus in practice yesterday Saint Mario will give heart ’n soul a go as well but clearly the Swansea one is the one in which we can really decide our own fate.” It will also decide Hughes’ fate. He is only contracted until the end of the season and relegation means he may not be offered a new deal. Sparky is pinning his hopes on Nathan Redmond regaining his confidence and hitting form at the right time. Redmond (right), 24, came off the bench to head Saints into a 1-0 lead at Everton on Saturday. But a 96TH-MINUTE Tom Davies goal saw them leave Goodison Park with a frustrating draw. Hughes said: “I haven’t been at the club that long and I think Nathan is basically an outstanding player. “But he lost a little bit of FORM Swansea L L L D D last 5 in league Southampton DWD L L UPS 'N DOWNS Prem positions since December Swansea Southampton SWANNING AROUND . . . but joker Carvalhal knows now is the time to get serious about survival no laughing matter serve as an incentive on its own. But they should also be mindful of the cost of relegation. Not just financial, although that is a sobering thought for shrewd chairman Huw Jenkins. Swansea would miss the £100million they get from the Premier League each season. The parachute payments — around £90m over three years — do not go far, either, just ask the likes of Blackburn, Wigan, Bolton, Sunderland and Portsmouth, who have all tumbled down the football pyramid and struggled to make it back. Swansea could go that same way, unless they beat Southampton and take matters back into their own hands. Carvalhal, of course, knows his job is to keep the club up and he is not interested in how to plug the £50m deficit. He added: “I don’t think about money when I manage a team. I try to think about winning games. “My job is to try and win games and in this moment try and stay in the Premier League.” And that is the task he is faced with and only then, once the club's league status is secure, can the joker return and enjoy the last laugh. LIKELY LINE-UPS — SWANSEA: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Ki, King, Clucas, A Ayew, J Ayew, Abraham. SOUTHAMPTON: McCarthy, Stephens, Hoedt, Bednarek, Cedric, Lemina, Romeu, Tadic, Bertrand, Redmond, Austin.

Sometimes he was being too sure, rather than being the natural player he is. “I thought he was excellent when he came on against Everton. “He clearly understood what was required of him and when we made the change. “That shows he is engaged and focused on what is happening out on the pitch. “I had to make the decision not to start him, so he was disappointed with that. “But it didn’t affect his focus on the game itself because that was why he was able to make the impact he did.” Saints must do without Maya Yoshida for their Swansea trip, with the Japan defender suspended after his red card at Everton. But Hughes refuses to get hung up over points dropped against Everton. He said: “It’s a quick turnaround so we can’t dwell on that result. We can’t feel sorry for ourselves. “I don’t think we’re in any way damaged by the consequences of the game in terms of confidence, so we’ll be ready to go again and it’s up to us to get the job done.” Should the South Coast club go down they face losing their quality players — and the £100million income that goes with being in the Premier League. Midfielder Dusan Tadic, maybe their one star player, is already a target for Ajax — and they will not be the only club circling. Southampton are paying the price for selling off their prized assets, mostly recently in January when the offloaded Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk for £75m to Liverpool. Lose tonight and that policy may have finally caught up with them.

But Ki is refusing to panic, with another home clash against already-relegated Stoke on the final day offering a possible last escape route. He said: “I don’t think there’s a problem with scoring goals, everyone has to help the strikers. We produced a good second-half display against Chelsea and must maintain that in the next two games.” PUEL . . . Foxes blast Puel fires warning By GRAHAM HILL CLAUDE PUEL has warned Leicester to ‘sack me at your peril’ — branding the Premier League a “piranha club”. The Frenchman is under pressure following the Foxes’ run of just four wins in 19 league matches — despite the public support of the chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. And boss Puel, axed by Southampton last summer, claims the Saints’ struggles this term should be seen as a warning to the King Power hierarchy. Ahead of Leicester’s home clash with Arsenal tomorrow, he said: “I finished eighth with Southampton. We can see where they play now. “I came here to a team in difficulties. But we’ll finish in the table’s top half. I am pragmatic about this. The Premier League is like a piranha club. “I try to have dignity and integrity in my work and to develop the club. “But speculation can create a problem.” Sport ENGLAND beat Italy 2-1 in the Under-17s Euros at Walsall.

To celebrate their title victory, each player, plus boss Pep Guardiola, had a unique light projection displayed in their home town. Sunday’s surprise illuminations were spread across 25 CITIES over THREE CONTINENTS. The light show kicked off with an image of the squad on Manchester Town Hall. Each location had a personal connection to the player, from the first pitch they ever played football on to their childhood school. There was the favela in Sao Paulo where Gabriel Jesus first learned to play, the beach in Gran Canaria where David Silva used to practise and the site of Kevin De Bruyne’s first club in Belgium where kids compete in the Kevin De Bruyne Cup each year. There were further tributes across the City Football Academy in Manchester to recognise the players who have graduated from the youth ranks to the first team this season. The illuminations were planned over the last couple of weeks following the club’s title win.

PREMIER LEAGUE NEW BOSS SORT OUT THIS MES But Three Amigos can lift Gunners THEY have arrived too late to save Arsene Wenger but Arsenal’s Three Amigos might just be the future for the new manager. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan started together for the first time in Sunday’s 5-0 rout of Burnley. And the way the superstar trio instantly clicked suggests they could be a force to be reckoned with next season. Now the headache for the next Gunners boss is finding a place for £350,000-a-week Mesut Ozil in his starting line-up. Ozil’s injuries and illnesses are winding up some of his teammates. If the new gaffer takes a dim view of his unreliability in terms of availability, he could be missing even more games next season than this — by being put on the bench. When Aubameyang signed for a club record £60million from Borussia Dortmund in January, it was widely assumed that he had been bought to replace Lacazette up front. The Frenchman had struggled to justify his £52m price tag during his first six months in England and was already in danger of being written off. Yet rather than accept his fate as Aubameyang’s pricey back-up, Lacazette has responded with the kind of form which prompted Wenger to sign him in the first place.

The England central defender 23, returned for Manchester City’s 0-0 draw with Huddersfield on Sunday after two months on the sidelines. And Stones, who has started just 15 league games this season, admits it has been a challenging campaign. The former Everton star, signed for £47.5million in August 2016, said: “It was frustrating, I had a bit of bad luck. “I suffered concussion coming back from England duty, then I got ill, so that kind of had just a knock-on effect. “I came back in, was training and got injured so it wasn’t an easy time. I’ve I really enjoyed it, although it would have been nice to celebrate it with a win.” Having picked up his first league winners’ medal, he added: “It doesn’t seem real — these kind of things you’re used to just watching it on the TV. “It will sink in, I think, eventually, but I’m just going to try and enjoy it and think about the season and what everyone’s done. “I think we’ve thoroughly deserved getting the title and how we’ve done it — the amount of points and everything. “To be honest, you could not see it going to anyone else. “It’s a special moment for me, my family and the team. I’m overjoyed.” MUST SOLVE OZIL DILEMMA By MARK IRWIN confirmation Lacazette is far too good to sit on the bench. And now he is relishing the opportunity to play alongside Aubameyang in a partnership which promises to be Arsenal’s most prolific since the days of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Robin van Persie. Mkhitaryan, a straight swap for Alexis Sanchez, has also hit the ground running after being dumped by Manchester United. It was head of recruitment Sven Mislintat rather than Wenger who drove the January deals for Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan. Arsenal’s new transfer chief knew both players from their time together at Dortmund and convinced them to move to the Emirates despite the absence of Champions League football. Wenger gave his approval to both signings but the deals would have gone ahead without his say-so if necessary. No one at Arsenal thinks all their problems have been answered by one decent home game against a half-hearted Burnley side. But the basis of next season’s team is already starting to take shape, with Wenger insisting this squad will challenge for major honours with the right summer signings. If the new manager retains the 4-3-3 formation which so impressed at the weekend, it is From Back Page have recurred regularly over the past 18 months. There had been no mention of an injury in the aftermath of Thursday’s Europa League defeat by Atletico Madrid. Ex-Arsenal defender Martin Keown snapped: “I don’t know how many illnesses he’s had but he’s not giving everything. There is much more under the bonnet.” Ozil has not started 25 of Arsenal’s 58 matches this term. He has become an increasingly divisive figure, communicating with only a handful of team- mates and avoiding promotional activities whenever possible. Some Gunners fans chanted “Mesut Ozil, he’s ill when he wants,” during Sunday’s game. Boss Arsene Wenger admitted: “I don’t think he’ll be available for the rest of the season.” But one former player claimed: “It’s interesting he now has a back problem because that is the one injury which is impossible to disprove. “But you can bet that he will be fully fit and available to play for Germany in the World Cup next month.” SICK OF STAR hard to see where Ozil fits in. He could play on the left of midfield alongside Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka. But his reluctance to track back or make a physical challenge would leave Arsenal vulnerable in the middle of the park. He could also work on the left of a 4-4-2 but does not enjoy playing wide and would struggle to give much defensive support to his full-back. That is why there is a growing realisation at the club that it would be a huge mistake to allow Jack Wilshere to leave as a free agent this summer. Wilshere is in the final few weeks of his contract and is keen to stay at the Emirates. But the contract he has been offered still requires him to take a wage cut and would pay him little more than a quarter of Ozil’s salary. Arsenal are still hoping to convince Wilshere to stay. The club’s hierarchy are also keen to give a more prominent role to emerging midfielders Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson. The Arsenal jigsaw is slowly falling into place. But Ozil — despite having the fattest salary — may no longer be the key piece in the picture when the new boss looks at his options. Ian Wright OUR COLUMNISTS ARE THE TALK OF FOOTBALL ARSENE WENGER needed broad need a centre-half, a keeper and another midfielder. shoulders more than once during possibly What the new boss has to do is the final years of his reign. arrive with the knowledge he must They came in handy for plenty of others at Arsenal too, in fairness. Not least the likes of Ivan Gazidis, Stan Kroenke and the rest of the Gunners top brass, who hid behind Arsene when the flak was flying. Now Arsene is going that safety net is going with him. So the time has come for all those who’ve been so quiet over the years to show their true colours. By that I mean for them to get vocal, get public, get behind whoever the new man is — and, most importantly, hold their nerve if he doesn’t get off to a flier. Whoever fills the vacancy will have a heck of a job on his hands, simply because the old manager was there for so long. But the goalposts have moved since Arsene arrived. These days it’s all about quick fixes, immediate success. And if it doesn’t happen, getting someone else in. We know there is no huge war chest for the next boss. Around £50m has been quoted — not in the same league as Chelsea or the Manchester clubs. By my reckoning, Arsenal develop what’s already there and turn them into Premier League stars. I do think there’s the basis to do that, though. I love the look of centreback Konstantinos Mavropanos, Ainsley Maitland-Niles is a player, and Alex Iwobi continues to improve. Young Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson are great prospects, too. So it isn’t a case of starting from scratch. Arsenal need someone with strength of character, confidence, tactical and coaching ability and an affinity for youth. From the top, it needs patience and nerve, plus the courage to speak up for the manager. Let’s be honest, there was precious little of that when the abuse was flying in Arsene’s direction, some of it personal, disgusting and shameful. I’ve no problem when criticism is constructive, I can look myself in the mirror when it comes to that, because I have only ever said what I think will benefit the club. But some of those fans who were cheering Arsene’s name on Sunday have shown more faces than the town hall clock. That’s out of order. It’s interesting chief executive Gazidis has suddenly become very public now he’s got what he wants. He should remember with great power comes great responsibility. Gazidis and the board failed to support Arsene in times of trouble. They mustn’t make the same mistake again. 56 ...............
