Nato-backed forces from

counter a Taliban comeback by locking down

said it is ?committed to

A defence source added:
?The debate is live and its
mainly a matter of who is
going to pay for it.?
The news comes as figures show the Army has
shrunk to its smallest in

However she said it was not for sale and

She told a US TV talk show of
the �5 ?penis facial? she and
Ocean?s 8 co-star Cate Blanchett,
49, got in New York.
Hollywood A-lister Sandra said
the serum was ?an extraction from
a piece of skin that came from a
young person far, far away?.
And host Ellen DeGeneres
pointed out it was from the
foreskins
of
circumcised
South Korean babies.
Sandra added: ?I call it
the penis facial and when
you see how good it is to
your face, you too will run
to your local facialist and
say, ?Give me the penis.??
The process sees cells
taken from the foreskin and
cloned in a laboratory.
Currently only available in
the US, the treatment is
supposed to boost skin proteins elastin and collagen.

IT is 5am and I?m stone
cold after a night sleeping
rough on the streets of
Windsor when a Spanish
photographer bends down
and takes a picture of me.
My back hurts and I have a
cold after kipping in a camping
chair with just a sleeping bag to
protect me from the elements.
But if I stick with this for another
two nights I might get a slightly
better view of Meghan Markle than
the rest of the gathered crowd. Could
it possibly be worth it?
I am camped out with an army of
diehard Royal Family devotees on a
corner of Windsor High Street, opposite the castle, hoping to have
bagged the best spot for the big day.
Some had grabbed a prime position as early as last Sunday.
The camp, dubbed Crazy Corner, is
a ramshackle collection of folding
chairs, foam roll mats and sleeping
bags after Thames Valley Police
banned tents for security reasons.
It looks like the Calais Jungle
migrant camp, only with more flags,
bunting and home-made signs.
One of the fans, John Loughrey, 63,
of Streatham, South London, claimed
to have the perfect spot.
He
said:
?Prince
Harry
and
Meghan will have to slow down to
come round the corner and we?ll be
able to see them close up.
?We?ll all be singing and toasting
them with Champagne. Diana would
be proud of her son. It will be worth
all the nights in the cold.?
Skye David London, 57, of Paddington, said: ?People call us mad.
Well, we are mad but we always get
the best seats.?
I arrived at Crazy Corner dressed
the part in a snazzy Union Jack suit.
The world?s media have descended
upon Windsor for tomorrow?s nup-
tials and as soon as I start unfolding
my camping chair an army of photographers begins snapping away.
But the camp is the very definition
of jubilation. Even in the evening,
when the temperature is starting to
drop, spirits are sky-high.

He said: ?I?ve been doing this since

outside the hospital at every birth.
?It is hard to sleep, it is cold and
uncomfortable. But you only need one
thing, a good sense of humour. We all
help each other out and have a good
time. It makes it worth it.?
Cheered, I got into my sleeping bag
for some much-needed shut-eye. But
the night was long and miserable.
I finally nodded off at around 4am
but was woken less than an hour
later by the rising sun and TV broadcasters interviewing other campers.
The residents of Crazy Corner will
stay glued to their spot until Saturday. They are either completely nuts
or incredibly devoted.
But I?ll take a comfy bed over a
pavement any day, even if that
does mean having to watch the

DEVELOPING our North Sea

But North Sea volumes are

It is right to continue to

We cannot meet our energy

the country needed to find new
supplies of gas. The Govern-
By STEVE HAWKES
Deputy Political Editor
ment said it now wants shale
gas exploration to be treated as
a permitted development by
councils to quicken the search
for new reserves.
Ministers also want to add
fracking to a list of nationally
significant projects to force
town halls to stand up to campaigners and approve drilling.
Furious green campaigners
said it would make it as easy
to explore for shale gas as
building a conservatory.
But officials said it was critical to reduce reliance on gas
from countries such as Russia.
Only a handful of exploration
projects have been approved
despite
former
PM
David
Cameron?s call for a fracking
revolution four years ago.
Ms Perry told The Sun protestors from out of town were
intimidating local communities
and decision makers.
She said: ?Shale gas extrac-
tion could provide a big economic
boost
for
local
communities sitting atop the
shale fields.?
Energy giant Cuadrilla welcomed the announcement, saying its bid to drill four
exploratory wells in Lancashire
took three costly years.
Fracking involves fracturing
rocks deep underground with
water and chemicals to extract
natural gas.

PLANS for a total ban on

by ministers yesterday.
Housing

the Government would

It came after a report
into the tragedy, which

branded a whitewash for
failing

recommend
axing such materials.
Tory ex-Housing Minister Mark Prisk said: ?All

Dame Judith Hackitt?s

building regulations said
a raft of measures were
needed to fix the system.
Her report hit out at

above safety. But she said
it had not looked at

Toxic fudge
ENOUGH is enough. Locking Britain for
years into some customs pact with the EU
is not Brexit. It is a road to ruin.
We are told it would be ?time-limited?.
But the ?transition? was time-limited.
This effectively extends that.
When would it ever end? When the EU
finally decides it is happy for new
technology to monitor the Irish border.
Never, in other words.
It is already sneering it will take till
2085. It will use any excuse.
We are told Britain would be free to
sign trade deals during that time. But
how could we negotiate without the
flexibility to diverge from EU rules?
We would be nominally ?out?, yet
forever marching in lockstep with it
over trade. ?Perpetual purgatory?, as
Jacob Rees-Mogg rightly calls it.
Theresa May is under huge pressure.
But this is not seizing the opportunity
Brexit presents. It is defeatism, attempted
damage limitation without realising the
REAL damage of a half-Brexit.
The Cabinet is running scared of
Brussels and Tory Remainers, as the EU
ratchets up the panic. The alternative is
to leave with no deal. But we are failing
abjectly to prepare for that.
It will cost us dear.
All hail shale
IT is a national disgrace that shale gas
was successfully demonised by a
campaign of hysteria and lies.
This is a potentially immense energy
resource beneath our feet which could
power the country cheaply for decades.
But eco warriors? baseless scaremongering about the environmental risks,
amplified by social media and grossly
irresponsible politicians, has prevailed.
The tall tales were debunked, but the
public remains afraid of fracking.
We salute the Government, then, for
finally grasping the nettle with
measures to help firms explore for shale
and compel councils to approve it.
Not long ago we were self-sufficient for
energy. Now we partly rely on the murderous, flaky Putin regime?s gas. We have
to get cracking with fracking, like the US.
And the Government must launch a PR
offensive to convince a doubting nation it
is clean and safe.
Never again
IT would be insane not to ban combustible
cladding on tower blocks after Grenfell.
And it should be mandatory to test
panels physically.
We know the tragedy had several
causes. We accept Dame Judith
Hackitt?s damning view of a building
regulations system unfit for purpose.
But 71 people died. Why risk more
lives with dodgy panels?
The Government is already spending
�0million removing them nationwide.
It must thank Dame Judith for her report
? then swiftly take far tougher action
than she has in mind.

WHAT TORIES MUST DO TO SURVIVE
5
By WILL TANNER
and NEIL O?BRIEN
ways the PM
can get
readers? votes
ROAD MAP . . .
Theresa May
THE next general election
is still a few years away.
But the challenge for the
Conservative Party is already
clear. It needs to change to
survive.
Prime Minister Theresa May
won as many votes last year
as Margaret Thatcher did in
her prime.
She earned the party its
biggest share of working-class
votes since 1979.
The Conservatives are now
back ahead in the polls.
But across some of the
parts of the population that
are growing the fastest, the
Conservatives are still trailing
behind Labour.
In
last
year?s
General
Election,
Jeremy
Corbyn?s
Little Red Book did not just
win over university students.
He also won over half of
people in their thirties.
A recent poll showed only
nine per cent of those aged
25 to 39 say they will
definitely vote Conservative.
The
Conservatives
are
behind among people who
rent their homes privately ?
and there are twice the
number doing that as there
were in 2000.
Nearly four times as many
people from ethnic minority
communities
voted
Labour
than voted Tory ? and those
different communities are a
growing
part
of
our
population.
YOUTH APPEAL . . . Corbyn
why we, as a party, must do
much more to reach out to
ethnic minority communities.
It is why, in government,
we must make sure that
everyone, no matter their
background,
gets
help
to
speak good English so they
can get a good job and be
part of a united country.
FOURTH, we need to do
much more to help places
that have suffered in recent
decades. Not just by aiding
big cities such as Liverpool,
Manchester and Birmingham
? some of which are now
growing faster than London.
But
also
by
tackling
deprivation in the neglected
smaller towns and coastal
communities where opportunities have been hard to come
by for years.
FIFTH, we must build an
economy that really does
work for everyone, not just
the well-off.
It is brilliant that unemployment is at a 40-year low.
But wages fell a long way in
the last recession and though
they are growing, working
people have been through a
very difficult decade.
Hard yards
So if the Conservative Party
does not broaden its reach, it
is finished. It is that simple.
That does not mean the
Prime Minister should copy
Corbyn?s empty promises.
Let?s
not
forget
that
Labour?s
most
recent
manifesto proposed to raise
taxes to their highest level
since World War Two.
Or that Corbyn?s plans to
borrow huge, unprecedented
sums of money to embark on
a spending spree would put a
millstone of debt around the
necks of younger people.
Or that the only thing he
wants to cut is our defence
budget ? and from the
Falklands to Russia, he has a
bad habit of siding with
Britain?s enemies.
The Tories have spent eight
years cleaning up the mess
Labour left behind. We do not
want to repeat their mistakes.
We remember the dangerous
situation
where
the
Government was borrowing a
quarter of all the money it
spent.
We did the hard yards
slashing
the
dole
queues
Labour left behind, and now
we have got more people in
work than ever before.
But we can not just rest on
our record. There are five big
challenges we need to solve if
we are going to deserve the
votes of Sun readers at the
next election.
The FIRST is obvious ? we
have to make a success of
Cut energy bills
Brexit. We should ignore
pompous members of the
House of Lords who say we
should
just
override
the
democratic
result
of
the
referendum.
But we should make sure
we listen when businesses
and exporters say they want
sensible arrangements to keep
business
flowing
between
Britain and Europe. That?s
exactly what the PM is
negotiating.
The SECOND is to give
young people at least the
same chances to get on in life
that
older
people
have
enjoyed.
That means reversing 15
years
of
falling
home
ownership and building more
homes that young working
people can afford.
But it also means reforming
taxes to focus on growing the
number of homeowners, not
just expanding the amount of
rented property.
The THIRD challenge is to
build a united Britain and
make the Conservative Party
feel like the natural home for
working
people,
whatever
their race or religion.
We
believe
we
must
continue to strongly control
immigration and stop illegal
immigration. But we also
believe in making sure everyone can feel part of Britain.
We admire those who have
come here with nothing and
built amazing businesses ?
and
we
know
that
the
Conservative
priorities
of
enterprise,
family
and
education
are
often
their
priorities, too.
Many feel very patriotic
about this great country that
is now their home. That is
Policies
such
as
the
National Living Wage and tax
cuts for the lower-paid have
helped those who want to
work, earn more and keep
more of their earnings.
But now we have to find
ways to raise average wages
and help businesses invest in
their workers.
Government
should
be
taking more of a role in
helping people to retrain
between jobs or to work in
new industries to reduce the
impact of new technology.
And we must do more to
help working families with
everyday costs of living. That
means cutting high energy
bills and helping working
families who face some of the
most expensive childcare in
the developed world.
If we do these things and
govern always in the interests
of working people, we can
beat Corbyn?s tried-and-failed
1970s politics.
By becoming the party
for
working
people,
the
Conservative Party can earn a
solid
majority
and
make
Britain fairer ? and more
united.

TWO Premier League teammates bullied over talk they are

One star found a note saying

His alleged lover was then abused when
a phallic sex toy was left on his car.
Six team meetings called by senior players to stop the homophobia have failed.
The anti-gay stunts have continued since
The Sun revealed, below, in March how the
club was at war because of the scandal.
One African-born ace told colleagues he
objected to men having a sexual relationship on religious grounds.
Some furious players have accused the
club?s management of doing nothing.
It has been left to established stars to
rein in ?four or five poisonous? people.
A club insider said: ?The

and
the targeted players left
distraught.
?A lot of players are

DANNIELLA ON CAR
By
GEORGETTE CULLEY
DRAMA is never far from
Danniella Westbrook, the
former soap star whose
battles with drugs, love
and surgery have been
played out for all to see.
But after ?years of putting crap
in my body? she says she has
cleaned up her act for good.
In fact, noting her past life as a
cocaine addict, she says during our
chat: ?I?ve been here for two hours
and I?ve not been to the toilet once.?
Although she has disappeared several
times outside our East London studio
for a cigarette, and shocked shoppers
by going to buy more while wearing
just a dressing gown.
The 44-year-old, who was last week
pictured while out for a jog in just
her bra and knickers, continues: ?I?m
in a good place. I?m boxing three
times a week, running ? yes, in my
underwear because I get too hot ?
and practising yoga.
?I?ve been so healthy recently. I?m
eating lots of eggs, greens and
coloured fruit, because that?s where
you get your antioxidants from.?
The
former
EastEnders
actress
declared last week that doctors were
planning to use one of her ribs to
replace her cheekbone and stop her
face crumbling from osteoporosis.
She says: ?It?s not ideal but I?m just
looking forward to getting it done so I
can move on with my life.
?The osteoporosis wasn?t due to
cocaine, I would admit it if it was, as
I never lied about my nose. It was
caused by botched dental implants.?
Danniella then pulls down her lip
and reveals black bolts in her mouth.
She says: ?It?s so painful, I have
dentures now.
?Jail was terrifying ? no
water, no food, no toilet?
?I went on Celebrity Botched Up
Bodies in 2016 for dental implants
after losing my teeth in a car crash.
?It was the worst decision I ever
made and I?m hoping the new surgery
can fix it. But it?s terrifying.
?Originally surgeons wanted to take
bone from my skull to put in my
cheek because it would be
stronger, but I begged
them to take it from my
ribs. I am terrified.
?I?ve had cosmetic surgery
I
haven?t
needed,
including seven boob jobs,
an eye lift, a face lift,
Botox and liposuction on
my knees. I?d like to say
that I wouldn?t have plastic
surgery again in the future,
but I probably would.?
In January last year Danniella admitted suffering a
cocaine relapse to ?numb the
pain? following her appearance on the botched bodies
show, which, she says: ?I?m
still suing. It?s been a long
battle.?
But she denies reports from
earlier this year that she
begged a friend for cocaine on
a break to Gran Canaria and,
during a holiday in Spain,
offered selfies for free drinks.
The mum of two says: ?There?s
a lot of rubbish printed about
me, I have nothing to hide.
?I?ve relapsed, I?ve been on
drugs but not for a long time.?

aged 16, Danniella was axed six
years later over her drug problems.
She returned in 1999 but was
sacked again in January 2000. The
troubled actress was later pictured at
the British Soap Awards with her
septum missing.
She once admitted her cocaine habit
was costing her �000 a week and
that she had spent around �0,000 in
total fuelling her addiction.
But as she beats one problem, it
seems another is always waiting. Last
month Danniella was arrested twice,
once in the UK and once in Spain,
over two separate offences.
Police here held her for ?malicious
communications and witness intimidation? amid claims she stole �,000

weeks but I?ve got it
back after they found
nothing on there.?
Last week the charges
were dropped and she
was pictured swigging
champagne in an Essex
nightclub and flashing her
knickers to celebrate.
She also spent two-and-a-half
days in a Spanish jail last month
after she was arrested over an
outstanding warrant in relation to
an alleged driving offence.
She says: ?It was over an unpaid
petrol bill for 30 euros. I?d got
robbed in Benidorm some days
before
and
cancelled
all my
cards. So when I
went to pay for the
petrol I only had one
card on me and it got
declined. I gave them
my

with my address on so
they could track me
down for payment and
didn?t think any more
of it. Six months later I
was arrested at the airport and charged with fraud. It
wasn?t fraud really but they needed
something to call it. It was terrifying in the jail. I had no water, no
food and no toilet and I was in
pitch darkness. All I could see was
a tiny red light from the CCTV.?
It has not been an easy few
weeks for Danniella ? but it is only
when she recalls the moment last
week that she found out about
Barbara Windsor?s Alzheimer?s battle that she breaks down in tears.
The
80-year-old
played
her
on-screen mum Peggy Mitchell in
EastEnders.
Danniella says: ?I saw it on the
front page of The Sun.
?This is a devastating illness but
I?d rather that than the pain of
cancer because at least she
doesn?t know. So in a way it?s
quite a nice place to be.
?Barbara is the button of life
and remembers everybody. She
has taught me so much.?
Danniella dropped a card into
Babs earlier this week after
husband Scott Mitchell, 55,
spoke of his wife?s diagnosis.
She adds the veteran actress
inspires her ?on and off? screen,
saying: ?Me and Barbara are so
similar, we both love a toyboy.?
Danniella has children Kai, 21,
from her romance with Robert Fernandez, and Jody, 16, by second
husband Kevin Jenkins. She tells
how ex-boyfriend George Arnold is
still ?the love of my life?, despite
their 19-year age gap, and admits:
?I never got over George. We don?t
speak but I still love him.?
Danniella is in touch with former
toyboy fiance Alan Thomason, 35,
despite their relationship ending
because ?he liked partying and
alcohol too much, and was a bad
influence on me?.
Her luck with men has not
improved much since. She says:
?God it?s been so long since I had
sex. The last time was with a guy
in Spain in December.
?I?m
on
Bumble
sometimes,
swiping through potential guys, but
I?ve not slept with anyone on there
yet ? although there is a guy I?ve
got my eye on.?
It is hard not to feel sorry for
Danniella. She goes on to describe
how a stalker has plagued her life
for years. She scrolls through
dozens of sick messages from her
alleged tormentor.
She says: ?A few weeks ago the
stalker threatened to kill my kids
and send them home in a box in
small pieces.?
Admirably,
Danniella,
who
appeared on I?m A Celeb in 2003,
is determined to focus on positives
in her life and is eyeing another
return to EastEnders as Sam. She
is so focused on getting her old
role back that she has adopted her
fitness routine, but nearly ?broke
my arm? weightlifting last week.
Wincing as she tries to take her
injured arm out of her jacket, she
says: ?I?m doing 250 sit-ups in one
session, and can hold a plank for
eight minutes. I?m a size eight and
I?m feeling amazing.?
Her hard work is paying off, as
she shows off her taut tum while
getting changed for our shoot.
Slipping into a cream jumpsuit
and posing in front of the mirror,
she recalls her soap days and says:
?This is so Sam. I love that character ? she?s a cow but she?s great.
?I?d love to get the chance to
play her again and would love to
do Strictly Come Dancing. But they
haven?t asked me yet.?
Her arrests, surgery and love
woes aside, Danniella insists she
could not be happier.
She says: ?I don?t need a man.
I?ve got a new one-bedroom flat in
Epping, Essex, and it?s just me by
myself and I couldn?t be more
excited. I can shut the door and
walk around in my knickers.
?I don?t have to share the remote
control or worry about the toilet

MIRACLE OF MAN
WITH 6 KIDNEYS*
By GREG WILFORD
A DAD with chronic renal failure has been
given five new kidneys in 30 years and
has only had one removed.
Darren Ferguson, 37, says the organs can dissolve, but has no idea how many are inside him.

He said: ?I know when I had my last transplant they
were talking about where

?To take out a kidney

never felt it necessary.
?As it stands I can?t

I?ve inside me, whether
it?s five or three or one.?
Darren was born with
blocked kidneys and had
his first transplant aged
five and his second at 16.
At times his condition
put him in hospital three
times a week and on
dialysis three times a day.
He met Princess Diana
at Great Ormond Street

being treated as a teen.
A transplanted kidney
at age 21 lasted just eight
hours and needed to be
removed. He has had two
other new ones since.
Now, medical developments allow Darren to be

Bianco (� Morrisons) is a delicious Italian
fizz made from grapes grown just outside the

Co-op?s wine buyer BEN CAHILL endorses
the Vuestro Spanish Sparkling, �99. He says:
?A modern, lemony and refreshing fizz from
Spain, which looks and tastes like prosecco.?
An ALDI SPOKESMAN says the chain has

?The bitch is dead.
Come and get me?
The prosecution had argued th
ha
att
the popular and gifted student, th
hen
n
18, strangled Hae in a fit of ra
age
e
because she had ditched him.
But following a spectacular invesstigation by journalist Sarah Koenig for
the ? rst series of Serial, a three
n
judge panel has found Syed did no
get a fair trial as he was let down by
his lawyer, Cristina Gutierrez.
In March the judges ruled that he
h r
?deficient
performance
prejudic
ced
d
Syed?s defence?.
Gutierrez, who died in 2004, did
dd
not challenge the reliability of some
e
possibly flawed mobile phone evi
e dence ? and also failed to conttac
ct
Syed?s potential alibi, high sch
hoo
ol
pupil Asia McClain.
No date has been given for the
e
retrial
but
Syed?s
new
lawy
yerr,
C. Justin Brown, said: ?It?s been
n a
really long wait and that?s been ha
ard
d
and stressful not just for us, but for
Adnan, who has now been in prisson
n
for 19 years, going on 20.
?I ? rmly believe he is innocent and
a d
our goal is to get him out of priso
on.?
Handsome athlete Syed and pre
etty
y,
hockey-playing Hae had fallen fo
or
each other in 1998 when students at
a
Baltimore?s Woodlawn High.
Hae had moved to the US from
m
South Korea six years earlier, wh
hile
e
Muslim Syed was born to parents
who had migrated from Pakistan.
They tried to keep their roman
nce
e
secret from their parents becauses of
o
the families? cultural differences.
But that did not stop them from
proudly posing for photos in April
that year for their school prom ? at
which Syed was voted the title of
?prom prince?.
However, by December that
year, they had broken up.
Pals of the pair say the two
remained friends, but the
prosecution in Syed?s trial
would argue that he was
harbouring hidden rage and
jealousy.
What is known for sure
is that Hae was last seen
alive on January 13, 1999.
Her body was discovered
a month later in Baltimore?s Leakin Park.
Syed, said to be a
l
normal eenager with little in the
way of vices apart from occasional
marijuana
ij
use, quickly
i kl b
became th
the
prime suspect.
The prosecution argued that after
school on the day Hae disappeared,
he had strangled her in his car. Then
they said he had called his
former classmate Jay Wilds and
told him: ?That bitch is dead.
Come and get me. I?m at
Best Buy.?
Drug dealer Jay testi?ed
that
Syed
showed
him
Hae?s body in the boot of
the car in the car park of
the computer shop and
joked that he had
killed
her
where
they used to have
sex.
Jay also claimed
he

were on the day Hae disappeared,
And it seemed to place them at the
burial site.
However, this evidence is now
thought to be unreliable. The judicial
review found Syed?s original lawyer
Christina Gutierrez ?fell below the
standard of reasonable professional
judgment? when she failed to raise
questions about this at his trial.
Seen at local library at
time of the murder
The review also found Gutierrez
made another unreasonable mistake
by failing to contact Syed?s classmate
Asia McClain, a potential alibi.
Syed himself failed to come up
with a convincing explanation about
what he was doing at the time of
Hae?s disappearance, with his memories of the day frustratingly vague.

Yet Asia ? tracked down in a

atic episode
of Serial ? say
ys she does
remember seeing him.
h
She says he was
w
in the local
library at the same
e time the prosecution claimed he was
w
murdering Hae.
Asia sent Syed two
t
letters immediately after his arrest
rrest saying she ?
along with her boyfriend and her
boyfriend?s friend ? could remember
seeing him that afternoon. Yet Syed?s
lawyer failed to talk to her.
Asia testi?ed at the 2016 hearing ?
which began the process to determine
whether Syed would get a new trial
? and said afterwards: ?Do I think
Adnan
killed
Hae?
Honestly,
I
couldn?t tell you.
?By coming forward, I hope that I
was able to provide enough information to the judge for him to be able
to make a rational decision. Whatever
Hae with Syed

April 1998
that might be is in
s hands.? Then
there iis S
th
Syed?s
d? motive
ti
? which
hi h th
the
prosecution argued was his anger
over her getting a new boyfriend,
fuelled by his possessiveness.
Excerpts from Hae?s diary, which
seemed to suggest this kind of
brooding jealousy, could have been
cherry-picked and there was little
other evidence to support the theory.
In fact, there is no physical evidence linking Syed to Hae?s murder
and there are no witnesses who saw
them together around the time of her
disappearance or the alleged time of
the murder. All these inconsistencies
the pro
osecution?s case
ave already
l
d b
been d
debated
b d at
ngth by Seriall?s fans.
Even Judge Marrtin Welch, who
resided over the 20
016 hearing and
found in favour of a retrial ? a
decision now con? rme
ed by the threejudge panel ? ack
knowledged the
impact Serial had
had.
He wrote: ?This case represents a
unique juncture between the criminal
justice system and a phenomenally
strong public interest caused by
modern media.?
Ahead of the new trial, it is up to
state prosecutors to try to plug the
holes in their case ? and any new
ones to emerge in the Sky series.
Syed, meanwhile, remains in prison
having not been granted bail. Yet for
the ?rst time in nearly 20 years,
there is a serious possibility he will
not be there much longer.

C4 PLANS
WEDDING
BUST-UPS
JUST a day after I told you
about NICK KNOWLES?s
Home Is Where The Art Is, TV
bosses have commissioned
another show where they
clearly thought up the name of
before the concept.
I?m told Channel 4 is making
a new five-parter called Bride
And Prejudice, which will
follow six couples as they
confront deeply held
opposition from their families
about race, religion, class,
age and sexuality.
The series, which will be
shown later this year, will
include heated debates and
face-offs as the couples try to
win over their loved ones in
the run-up to the big day.
Producer Duncan Coates
said: ?There?s nothing like a
wedding to flush out a family
drama, especially when it
crosses traditional divides.
Bride And Prejudice is a
timely reworking of an age-old
love story.
?Warm, witty and searingly
honest, it?s a brilliant insight
into the struggles for
acceptance played out across
Britain today.?
l
ROMESH
COMIC
RANGANATHAN is
about to front his own
show for BBC2.
And he is on the hunt for
members of the public to
make up a panel for the
show, which will be called
The Ranganation.
A source close to the
comedian said: ?Romesh
is very excited about the
project, which begins
filming next month, and is
hoping it gets made into a
series but it?s early days.?
It comes with the news
that his first US comedydocu, Just Another Immigrant, will be screened
there next month.
Sounds like someone
won?t have time to watch
the World Cup.

DURRAMATIC RETURN
THE final episode of The
Durrells went out earlier this
month, but I?ve got good news
for fans of the ITV series ? it?s
coming back for a fourth outing.
The Corfu-based show, which
is set in the Thirties and stars
KEELEY HAWES and JOSH
O?CONNOR, saw 3.6million
people tune into the finale. And
with viewers eager for more,
bosses haven?t hung about.
A set source said: ?Producers
are happy that the series has
picked up a fanbase and fills the
tough Sunday night slot.?
The new six-parter will still be
based on GERALD DURRELL?s
books, and will be written by
Simon Nye.
Producer Sally Woodward
Gentle said: ?We are delighted
to be making more of The
Durrells on magical Corfu. It?s a
dream come true.?
It doesn?t sound like work.

Fools reunion
FANS have been crying out
for an Only Fools And
Horses reunion for years
and now they have one ?
sort of.
The legendary DAVID JASON
and
SUE
HOLDERNESS,
who
played Marlene Boyce in the
classic show, will be working
together very soon.
I?m told Sue is joining the cast
of Still Open All Hours, the BBC1
RONNIE
comedy
sequel
to
original
from
the
BARKER?s
Seventies and Eighties, which has
FINALE . . . Josh as Larry Durrell
SUE JOINS DAVID IN STILL OPEN ALL HOURS
started filming its fifth series in
Doncaster this week.
It?s the first time Sue and
David, inset, have worked
together
since
2003,
when Only Fools sadly
came to an end after a
run
of
Christmas
specials.
A
TV
source
said:
?Sue
and
David have kept
in touch over the
years but this is
the first proper
project that they have worked on
together since Only Fools ended
more than 14 years ago.
?The BBC are delighted
they?ve
managed
to
convince her to come on
board for Still Open All
Hours.
?She will be seen
over several episodes
in
the
series,
alongside other bigname guests.?
A BBC spokeswoman told me last
night: ?We?re excited that Sue
Holderness will be a recurring
guest on the next series of Still
Open All Hours.
?She will bring a huge fan base
from her work as Marlene in Only
Fools And Horses.?
Only Fools broke records for a
sitcom
by
having
the
mostwatched episode ever, pulling in
more than 24.3million viewers for
the last one featuring Uncle
Albert in 1996. No surprise they
are trying to bring a few of those
viewers along by hiring Sue.

BEAR ISLAND
soapbox
IT is decision time for Martin
in EASTENDERS as he
realises he wants to move on
from his relationship.
He?s struggling to forgive
Stacey over her deception
with Hayley and decides it is
the end of the road. But after
speaking to Kush, he ponders
a reunion with Sonia.
Stacey struggles to be
around Martin during a kids?
party and rushes off.
Meanwhile, with the Royal
Wedding festivities imminent,
Linda is livid when Stuart
breaks her favourite royal mug.
In CORONATION STREET
Kate is desperate to take her
mind off the loss of Aidan. She
and Sophie head to town and
get drunk.
A group of lads try to play
drinking games with the pair
but when Kate tells them to
get lost they turn nasty.
BEAR GRYLLS? Celebrity
Island is famed for being
tough, but conditions this
year have led to a mass
walkout by the female
contestants.
Love Island?s MONTANA
BROWN threw in the towel
just days after filming
began and now actress
ROXANNE PALLETT, left,
and journalist PARIS
LEES are out too.
The last woman
standing is JO
WOOD, the ex-wife of
rocker RONNIE, who
at 63 is the oldest
ever contestant.
Tough Jo has
stayed on the
uninhabited
island off the
coast of
Panama to
see it
through with
the lads, who
include actor
MARTIN
KEMP, boxer
ANTHONY
OGOGO and Olympic
rowing champ JAMES
CRACKNELL.
A production source
said: ?The show is in
crisis as a mass walkout
has never happened
before.
?Bosses have lost a
large chunk of their cast,
which include a lot of the
younger stars.
?Some of the celebs
had just had enough.
?With little food and
sleeping outdoors, the
challenge was just too
much for them.
?Producers
have been really
impressed with
Jo for sticking it
out.?
After all
those years
touring with
THE ROLLING

Island is
probably a

Foreign lover?s
growing family
Dear Deidre
I AM having wonderful
sex with a friend but the
mother of his children is
expecting another baby.
I have known him for nearly ten
years. I am 32 and he is 35.
One night he knocked on my
door, obviously having had a few
drinks, and said he had fallen in
love with me. I made a joke of it
and made him a coffee.
But it stayed in my mind so the
following week I asked him if he
remembered saying it.
He said he did and he meant it.
He knew it was not right but he
had to tell me how he felt and
wanted to know if I was seeing
anyone else.
That evening was the first time
we had sex.
Of course I asked about his
children?s mother. She lives in
their home country of Bulgaria so
her family can help with their
three children.
He said he loves her but that he
didn?t feel guilty about sleeping
with me because we go back a
long way.
We
have
been
having
sex

regularly for six months and he is
more open with his friends about
staying over at mine. He even told
his partner he was spending his
birthday at my place.
But it?s mixed messages. He
often says he loves me but if I say
the same to him, he tells me not
to as he?s not worth it.
Now his partner is pregnant
again. He went home to Bulgaria
for Christmas.
He said he is pleased about the
baby but dreaded telling me as he
was worried it would change
things between us. I said it
wouldn?t but it got me thinking.
He stays at mine most of the time
now and he phones and texts me
every day to see if I am OK.
We spend weekends together,
sometimes going out, sometimes
staying in to watch TV.
We are comfortable in silence
together. He says I know him
better than anyone.
But I don?t know if I am just his
bit on the side or if we are in a
proper relationship.
I didn?t think I needed to know
but lately I have been wondering
where I stand.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: This guy owes it to
you to be more honest. Currently he
has the best of both worlds and this
isn?t fair on you.
You are putting your life on hold for
someone who clearly has committments elsewhere.
While you go along with this without
complaint he feels no need to choose.
You need to find the courage to say
firmly you want to know how he sees
the future of your relationship.
You could give him an ultimatum or
simply decide that you will finish with
him if he is still leading a double life in,
say, three months? time.
I think the baby should and will win ?
but you deserve a better relationship.

I HAVE discovered that my

threesomes with her
male friends.
They have been sexting,
exchanging porn videos and
using WhatsApp to arrange
group sex.
I am shocked as I was

When I said I could not
tolerate her slipping out to
meet other men she was full
of remorse.
We agreed to move on and
things were OK for a while.
Then I found out she was
back to her old tricks.
I think I have no choice but
to end my marriage. I keep
thinking it is because I am 43
and she is still only 28.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: The age
gap is not the problem.
When you first
discovered what she was up
to, she promised to change
but as a couple you did
nothing to tackle the
underlying issues.
Do you two share an
active sex life? Did her
parents have a faithful
relationship?
My e-leaflet Cheating ?
Can You Get Over It? could
help. But you have to spell
out that any more cheating
? on or offline ? means
divorce.
YOU DON?T HAVE TO KEEP
REMINDING ME. BUT IT?S
NOT NICE HAVING TO
SHARE YOU WITH YOUR
OTHER FAMILY
nearly every time we have sex.
I know it is a risk.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It may be
as your fiancee is so special
to you, you worried about
the condom interfering with
your love life and now the
worry itself is causing the
problem.
It can help to practise putting on a condom by yourself
so you know you can do it.
But as a faithful couple,
another form of contraception could suit you better. My
e-leaflet Guide To Contraception explains options.

Dear Deidre
MY boyfriend says I am too
quiet when around his
parents and I shouldtry to be
more confident and chatty
with them.
We have been seeing one
another for two years. I am 20
and he is 22.
I think his mum has said
something to him about all
this because he keeps
hinting to me about how she
?wants to get to know me
better?.
I am shy and I do find his
mum a bit difficult.
But I am always polite to
her and she chats enough for
both of us.
I think it is normal not to
get on as easily with your
in-laws as you do with your
parents.
But this is causing rows
and tension between me and
my boyfriend.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: If you feel
judged and your boyfriend
criticises you, no wonder
you find it hard to relax
around his parents.
My e-leaflet, Shyness And
Social Anxiety, gives hints
on raising your confidence.
You could help break the
ice with his mum if you ask
her to go shopping with you
for a dress, say.
Say you would value her
opinion, and you?ll rocket in

This is perfect if
you are a wedding
guest. The luxe
fabric and mustardyellow tone are fit
for a princess.
Plastic is a hot
trend, so embrace it
by trying it in pastel
pink. This mini will
keep you looking

Ingredients
For the sponge:
225ml cooled espresso
250g light brown sugar
230ml olive oil
Pinch of vanilla
2 eggs
250ml whole milk
110g cocoa powder
2tsp bicarbonate of soda
240g plain flour
Pinch of sea salt
25ml Baileys Original Irish
Cream
For the crown:
A bag of ice
A bowl
300g dark chocolate
Gold lustre dust
MAKE up the coffee and leave to cool. Beat
together the olive oil, sugar and vanilla.
Add the eggs and milk and beat gently
until well combined.
Sift together the cocoa, bicarb, flour and
salt. Stir until evenly combined, then beat
into the batter until smooth.
Slowly add the cooled coffee and
Baileys until just combined evenly.
Pour into two well-greased 9in cake tins.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out
clean. Stack and ice with your favourite
buttercream and begin to decorate.
To make the crown, melt the chocolate
over a medium heat. Put the ice into a bowl
or tub. Tip the melted chocolate over the
ice and wait.
Once the chocolate has set and the ice
has melted enough to remove it safely, dry
the chocolate, then dust with gold.
Position on top of your chocolate cake to
create a treat fit for royalty.
l Recipe from Lily Vanilli and Baileys
THE TOOTH IS
OUT THERE
PASTA SAUCE
THE tomato-based sauce at your local
Italian may seem harmless but it is
not good for your gnashers.
The acidity of the tomatoes makes
enamel porous, so teeth more easily
absorb the red colouring. So create a
protective layer on teeth first, by eating a
side salad or adding green veg such as
broccoli to your meal.
TEA
THE higher tannin content of
your morning cuppa makes
it a bigger villain than
coffee because the plantbased compounds make
it easier for stains to stick
to enamel.
Use a reusable cup for
a takeaway drink ? sipping it through the hole in
the lid lessens the extent
your teeth are exposed to
tea?s harmful substances.
WHITE WINE
SIPPING this with a meal can
have a really
damaging
effect
on
your teeth. A
team at the
New York
University
College of
Dentistry
WHEN it comes to pearly
whites, it pays to be careful
what you eat and drink.
Dentist Rhona Eskander
says: ?Chromogens in food
have strong pigments that
can stick to tooth enamel.?
Here?s the worst offenders.

found that acids in the alcohol create tiny
gulleys and rough spots on your teeth that
lead to stains from darker foods penetrating deeper into them. So drink some water
too, to wash the acid off your teeth.
MARMALADE
EAT this on your toast every day and over
time it can expose the yellow dentine
beneath your tooth enamel.
Citric acid from the oranges, plus the
high sugar content, thins the enamel to
reveal more of the dentine.
Best to wait half an hour after
eating for the enamel to harden,
then brush away the sugars that
could cause damage.
DIET DRINKS
DIET and sugar-free drinks
often contain high levels of
citric and phosphoric acid ?
these erosive chemicals are
used to give the drinks their
tangy taste.
NHS guidelines suggest that
chewing gum which contains
xylitol ? a sweetener
made from birch
trees ? can help
neutralise the
acidity these

BADOO is my new favourite thing. I
spend my life muttering evils about
the dating apps I?m on but this one is
genuinely ace.
There are two main reasons for my
new crush ? laziness and the horn.
First up, laziness. On most dating
apps, I panic every time I match with a
guy then need to say hello.
I agonise pointlessly over whether
to say ?Hi? or ?Hey? or ?Hiya?.
Like a puberty-dodging buffoon, I
nail-bite over the best use of an emoji.
(In fact, there isn?t one ? we should
ban the bastards.)
But Badoo has nixed all that crazy
misery by messaging men for me.
That?s right. Dating is now so lazy,
you don?t need to participate in the
process at all.
Just let the Badoo algorithm do its
thang, nudge your thumb twice
(swipe right, press the ?yes? button to
message) and kick back with a beer.
Hell, you could almost be in a
vegetative state and still make solid
plans for a Friday night.
So with newfound confidence, I
swipe right and ?message? guys in
the same breath.
Badoo automatically sends my
blokes a variety of openers, most of
them super-chill with a waving emoji.
And it works!
Within seconds, the replies are
coming in thick and fast.
Now for the second reason Badoo
is rocking it: The horn.
Those clever little filthpots have
introduced a video messaging
function on their app.
?This is me without
pants? moments
The PR lot reckon this is a lovely,
civilised way to vet potential dates
before meeting up.
But my dirtbag siren started up the
second I heard about it.
Because clearly most people will
use the function purely for ?This is me
without pants? moments. I decide to
put that premise to the test.
I get talking (sorry, Badoo gets
talking) to Andy and ask how his day
has gone.
Andy is a carpenter and uses
?Babe? at the start of every reply.
We tap-dance around the usual
pleasantries until I suggest: ?Hey, do
you fancy a video chat? I?ve not used
this on here yet.?
Andy-Babe replies with a photo of
himself in just briefs sitting on a bed
in front of the ugliest curtains I?ve
ever seen. Urgh!
There is no way I can indulge in live
video sex chat without breaking off to
howl: ?Good god, man, redecorate!?
I ditch Andy-Babe and switch to
Allain. This spelling of Alan troubles
me but I soldier on and, finally,
suggest we video-chat.
He says he is in bed (?Here we go,? I
think) but can get up and speak five
minutes from now.
I dash into my lounge, frantically
get the lighting to its most flattering ?
just this side of pitch-black ? and wait.
Allain calls . . . and he?s gorgeous.
He?s wearing jeans with no top and
has a very good bod.
I suddenly feel painfully shy, but
take a deep breath and start
talking . . .

Is it not time to renationalise
other lines when private contracts
end, resulting in better services
for passengers? Or would this just
make the Labour Party gloat?

Your smartest ideas ever are conjured up by Mercury, setting
your mind at maximum power. Saturn gives you the persistence
to keep going with a project until it works. When finding new
love, the only drawback to having Mars in your chart?s most
sociable part is having to choose between two atttractive Leos.
You are such a good communicator as the moon moves across
your talk chart. You can speak confidently about your skills and
ambitions without sounding arrogant. Money you didn?t expect
to see again could be back ? and with it, an unusual explanation.
Single? The luckiest love location is where live bands play.
A chance to learn more about websites and social media grabs
your interest and it could lead to a job that brings out creative
skills you never guessed you had. Later, love takes over and as
Venus completes its stay in your sign, you are ready to make a
crucial decision about how serious a relationship is.
Your leading light, the moon, gives you a certain something that
means you can coax co-operation from even the most stubborn
people. Then the projects that really matter to you will progress.
As for love, three subtle questions will reveal the level of
commitment in a partner?s heart.
As brain-booster Mercury and strict Saturn link the two job
zones of your chart, your ability to think fast and get all the facts
helps you make progress. Single? When you meet someone with
your dream job, love sparks fly. Already involved? If one partner
earns much more than the other, talk it through to avoid tension.
This is a day to dream, as Venus steps closer to your zone of
highest hopes and suddenly you see the future you could create
for yourself. If true love is a major factor, you can find it with a
sociable but secretly shy Capricorn. Already loved up? Try not to
compare partnerships ? each is special in its own way.
There is a strong strand of ambition in your chart, so make this
your moment to stop overthinking and get things done. You will
feel such a sense of achievement, plus this new you has an
intriguing job programme. Watching movies together helps a
couple feel at ease and ready to make a big decision.
Neptune and an ultra-creative moon get together to bring your
ideas into the light. This time they will shine so bright. Don?t let
doubt hold you back. On the subject of romance, as Venus
arrives in your truth chart, it is easier to interpret your feelings
and know if it is warm friendship or complete love.
You can look at the way a house is decorated ? or how an event is
organised ? and come up with the right solution to any
problems. Share your thoughts, as people will be better off for
hearing them. But be tactful. Venus helps partners rediscover
what makes their relationship special.
Your loyalty is admirable and everyone knows how much they
can rely on you . . . except you. Start being your own best friend
and celebrate your achievements. When you make this switch, a
partner will fall more deeply in love with you. If you are looking
for love, a message across continents could be from The One.
Get set for action and success, with Mars priming your personal
zone and Venus getting ready to take charge of work and
wellbeing. Finding an activity you rate should be your priority.
After that, pace yourself in love and in life. Single? Your new love
raises money for a wildlife charity.
Letting a partner know how you feel, or falling for someone you
are just getting to know, is like gambling with your heart. It
should be done with great care. Swift responses are needed
when a new assignment goes on offer at work. A name your
family used in the past could prove valuable for your future.

When depression hits I feel I?m
at the bottom of a well. Talking
about stuff helps deal with it
SAYS GARY LIGHTBODY
SNOW PATROL
IT is seven years since
we last heard from Snow
Patrol ? and a lot has
changed for singer Gary
Lightbody.
Wildness marks the return of
the
multimillion-selling
band
known for mega-hits Chasing
Cars and Run.
?At the end of the last tour we
were burnt out,? says Lightbody.
?We?d been in a cycle of ?album,
tour, album, tour? and we needed
a break. We needed a rest from
the road.?
In particular, Lightbody, 41,
needed time to sort out his
personal
problems.
He
had
struggled
with
depression
for
years and tried to numb the pain
with drink and drugs.
We meet at a cafe in Hollywood
where he?s just finished radio
interviews
promoting
Snow
Patrol?s comeback.
Chatty and friendly, he says he
is enjoying the band?s return and
is very proud of Wildness.
He is open about his personal
issues and the changes he has
made to his life.
?Talking about stuff is a really
good way of dealing with depression,? he says.
?The more open you are about
the things that are going on in
your life, the more you are able to
cope with it.?
Lightbody has lived in Santa
Monica, California, during his
time away from the band he
formed at the University of
Dundee 25 years ago.
Appearing lean and healthy,
By JACQUI SWIFT
wearing a blue and white Adidas
jacket, he looks like he is on his
way to the gym rather than
returning to the stage.
?I?ve been running, playing
football and I meditate every
day,? he says.
?Acupuncture has been amazing
and I speak to therapists when I
need to.
?I wasn?t able to drown in
booze any more. I do a lot of
things now to temper that.?
The wake-up call for Lightbody
had come before football?s European Championship during the
summer of 2016.
?I had my tickets and flights
booked for all the matches and
was going to France with four
friends,? explains Lightbody.
?Hurtful things?
?I woke up one morning and
wasn?t feeling very well ? physically unwell.
?I was doing my exercises and
I bent down to touch my toes
and when I came up, it was like
it was an earthquake.
?I was dizzy and everything
was moving. I phoned a friend
who lived nearby and went to see
a doctor.?
That was the first step in
Lightbody?s recovery. The doctor
referred him to a specialist and
further investigations.
Lightbody says: ?I had tests and
basically my whole head, eyes,
ears, nose and sinuses were
infected. I was told I needed an
operation and there was no way I
could get on a plane.?
His pal, an acupuncturist, asked
to treat Lightbody for six weeks
to help him get back on track.
?She also asked me to calm
down on the drinking,? he says.
?So I stopped. That was two
years ago and I credit my friend
with saving my life. The song
Heal Me is written all about the
experience.?
Tackling his drinking helped
Lightbody deal with the depression he had battled with
since he was a teenager.
?In the past I?ve
drunk to deal with
the darkness and
it?s got me into
trouble,? he now
admits.
?Drinking never
made me aggressive, it only really
made me goofy.
?I
would
fall
over. I had a really
bad fall down some
steps years ago and
ended up in hospital.
?That was really bad
but besides that, most things
I did drunk were just embarrassing. I?ve said some hurtful things
to people, which I wished I?d
never said.
?I?ve apologised for my mistakes, which is what AA teaches
? and I?m all for it. Atoning for
your mistakes is important.?
Lightbody says he had battled
with the booze for years and
would return to drinking again
and again.
When I interviewed him in
2008, he insisted he was ?no
longer the chaotic, crazy person
with his finger on a self-destruct
button ? though chaos can be fun
at times?.
Today, he admits things carried
on in the same way after that ?
and his drinking got out of
control when he first moved to
Los Angeles.
Then the chaos stopped being
fun and Lightbody?s depression
took him to dark places, even
contemplating suicide.
Lightbody admitted recently
there were times he ?used
to
think
about
not
existing?.
Now he tells me:
?When it hits, it?s
extremely
dark
and I feel I?m at
the bottom of a
very deep well.
?But I haven?t
had
that
deep,
dark
depression
for

?Being in rehearsals with the

We meet before the tragic news
of the deaths of Swedish DJ and
producer Avicii and Frightened
Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison.
Lightbody
paid
tribute
to
Hutchison on Instagram, calling
him ?one of Scotland?s most
extraordinary songwriters?.
He added: ?He wrote with such
profound insight into loss and
longing, and listening to his

INTERVIEW
words always made me feel
this heady mix of wonder, elation
and pain.
?That pain that also makes you
feel someone understands what
you?re going through and you
don?t feel so alone.
?He was willing to hurt in his
songs so the listener hurt less.
But when you live on the edge of
that pain, it can sometimes get to
be too much to bear.
?I just wish he knew what he
meant to so many. Thank you,
Scott, for every extraordinary
song you ever wrote and for the
times we shared.
?Your music brought light to
the world and always will. So
much love to all your family,
bandmates and close friends. I
am so deeply sorry for their loss.
The world is less today without
you Scott. x?
There were plenty of times
when Lightbody thought he?d
never write another Snow Patrol
album again.
He says: ?It wasn?t writer?s
block, as I was writing music
scores and songs for other people.
?Going through what I went
through gave me something to
write about.
?In the past, I wrote love songs
or songs about heartbreak.
?But I haven?t been in a

?And it was really important I
said something different on a

when I stopped drinking almost
two years ago.?
Lightbody has no fears about
drinking again, saying: ?The
only time I do think about
drinking, I think about hangovers immediately, and I don?t
want to go back there.
?It was my health to begin
with and then my sanity after
that. Giving up drinking is an
intuitive thing.
?The only problem is, it
makes you more insane to
begin with.
?You feel completely at the
mercy of your own mind.
?But talking about it is a
really good way of dealing with
it. The more open you are about
the things that are going on in
your life, the more you are able
to cope with it.?
As well as battling problems
with
drink
and
depression,
Lightbody has struggled seeing
his dad deal with dementia.
?That hurt inspired the song
Soon on the new album.
?It?s been tough,? he says, ?but
also beautiful in ways because
my dad reminisces a lot.
?Your long-term memory is
the last to go, so he?s now
talking about his childhood a
lot and we have conversations
about him being a boy and I
hear stories I?ve not heard
before.
?It?s a journey
through my psyche?
?It?s been illuminating and
touching to have a renewed
connection at a time when it
feels some of it is slipping
away.?
The album Wildness is full of
deeply
personal
songs,
the
two best being the widescreen
opener Life On Earth and
the majestic A Youth Written
In Fire.
The latter is about ?the alcoholfuelled days and the more
sedate days of now?.
Once again, Lightbody made
Wildness with Garret ?Jacknife?
Lee ? Snow Patrol?s producer
since 2003.
Lightbody credits Lee with
?understanding
where
he
wanted to go with this album?.
He adds: ?He just gets me
and he has a way of drawing
things out of us all.
?He?s not just a producer,
he?s a cool writer and a brother-in-arms.
?One day in the studio, I was
trying to write a song when he
put on Nick Cave?s Jesus Alone,
which is an extraordinary piece
of music and written about
something horrendous.
?But it set me into a trance
and that?s where A Youth
Written In Fire came from.
?It was the song that allowed
me to find my way into the
Q& A
MT. DESOLATION
I started Snow Patrol at
18, it?s been my life and
everything?s invested in it
album.? Making Wildness has been
a personal journey for Lightbody
but he is keen to stress it is ?a
band album?.
Snow Patrol boasts another highprofile
songwriter
in
Johnny
McDaid, who has also written
for Ed Sheeran, Robbie Williams
and Pink.
I ask how the politics of songwriting works within the group.
?I don?t let him do anything,?
Lightbody laughs.
?I?m kidding. Johnny, Garret and
I wrote (new single) Empress
together ? and a whole bunch of
other songs for this record that will
no doubt come out at some point.
?Johnny is the busiest man in
showbiz. He?s working with a lot of
different people and is an amazing
songwriter ? and an amazing guy
as well.?
Lightbody himself has written
songs for Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift
and One Direction. He says Sheeran
is his favourite person to write with
away from Snow Patrol.
?Ed is so much fun to write
with,? he says. ?He?s so easy-going,
so fast and such a quick thinker.
?He is an endless well of imagination and energy.?
Lightbody says he finds it easy to
keep
his
extracurricular
work
separate from the band.
He says: ?I started Snow Patrol
when I was 18. It?s been my whole
adult life, so I have everything
invested into it.
?I don?t mean any disrespect but
film work or anything else just
doesn?t have the same investment
soulwise.?
Lightbody is excited about the
release of Wildness ? and for fans
to hear what he says represents his
proudest body of work.
?Anyone who listens to the album
as a whole hopefully will feel like
they?re on a journey through my
psyche ? and hopefully it?s not too
disturbing,? laughs Lightbody.
?It?s someone trying to find their
way back to the truth, back to
clarity, back to a reality that seems
more hopeful.?
lWildness is released on May 25.

RYLEY WALKER
Deafman Glance
THE word ?grower? could have been
invented for albums by guitar maestro
Walker.
His latest album typically draws on jazz
and folk to weave strange, otherworldly
patterns of sound.
Even the flute, a unusual rock instrument unless you?re Jethro Tull?s Ian Anderson, comes into play with ethereal
effectiveness on opener In Castle Dome.
Then 22 Days meanders seemingly aimlessly and one?s attention wanders, but it
draws you back in with moments of precious beauty.
It?s certainly a grower of an
album and Walker proves himself a grower of an artist.

STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE
JICKS Sparkle Hard
FORMER
Pavement
frontman
Stephen Malkmus has a unique
style of art college rock that hasn?t
changed a great deal since Crooked
Rain, Crooked Rain back in 1994.
Fans will not be disappointed by
the sonically adventurous Sparkle
Hard. It is light and breezy AND
melancholic and reflective, showcasing Malkmus?s lilting vocal style,
catchy melodies and jangly, sometimes discordant, guitar work.
Different styles dip in and out of
the mix from the quirky fuzz guitar
pop of Bike Lane to the
anthemic Shiggy. Middle
America is a twangy and
low-key ?ode to underdogs everywhere?.

COURTNEY BARNETT
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
THE Aussie singer continues to tell it like it
is on solo record No2.
After an engrossing duo album diversion with Kurt Vile, here?s another dose of
her deadpan but telling observations on
life in the complicated 21st Century.
Backed by confident, urgent arrangements, she turns her focus away from herself to impressions of other people, loved
and loathed, that she encounters.
Her indie/punk attitude and aesthetic is
never more present than on the fired-up,
slightly disturbing first single Nameless,
Faceless.
But the biggest takeout is
that this is a singular artist
who still has plenty to say.
Courtney Barnett is in it for
the long haul.
HHHH SC
THE early part of Springsteen?s
recording career was flawless ? one
stellar album after another.
The second chapter, represented by
this fabulous vinyl box set, is more
complicated, yet just as intriguing.
It begins with bruised Boss in a dark
place on Tunnel Of Love, an Eighties
album by a major rock artist that
actually stands the test of time.
The unloved, simultaneously released
pair Lucky Town and Human Touch
repay a listen, particularly the latter with
its raw energy. A couple of slight EPs
and an MTV live album flesh
out this set, but sparse,
gritty The Ghost Of Tom
Joad seeps into your soul.

Tell Me How You Really Feel
Album Collection Vol 2: 1987-1996
?We all know
that feeling
of yearning?
MT. DESOLATION began as a bit of fun
for Keane?s Tim Rice-Oxley and Jesse
Quin. Eight years after the pair?s debut
album, they tell JACQUI SWIFT about
follow-up When The Night Calls . . .
When you made the first album, did
you think there would be a second?
JQ: We wanted to. We had no idea
when or whether it would be similar.
Are the songs recent? Or from over
the past eight years?
JQ: A mixture. I?m terrible at starting
songs then not finishing them for ages.
But you end up with lots to choose from.
What was the songwriting process?
JQ: We write separately then send
songs to each other for soul-destroying
criticism. We do pretty full demos, so we
already have a rough idea in the studio.
This album deals with growing up.
JQ: It digs into the reasons why things
happen. I don?t know if that is a sign of
growing up but it feels more rewarding.
You have also called it the sound of
friends doing what they love.
JQ: If you push to keep improving, it
always feels like a challenge. The more
you do it, the more
tools you acquire.
Why such a gap?
TRO: We started
about four years
ago. But we wanted
to find a sound that
felt exciting and
authentic for us
now, rather than
Mt DESOLATION
revisit the altcountry feel of the
When The
first album. We did
Night Calls
a lot of writing, a lot
HHHH
of demos and
ended up with a
story we were
happy with.
Does it feel odd making such
American music in England?
TRO: This feels a lot less American.
The first album started off as a
conscious attempt at Americana . . .
indulging our fantasies of being Neil
Young or The Band. But Mt. Desolation
has grown into something more than
that ? something more important to us.
We wanted this to show a true picture
of who we are. So I?d say it?s a very
English album, set in the small towns
where it seems like nothing happens but
actually everything happens.
Why the title?
TRO: Lyrically, there?s a sense of
things lurking just out of view, ready to
lure you away from the good stuff. It
could be you?re yearning for a different
place, a different lover, a different time ?
we all know that feeling. Jesse?s line,
?And when the night calls, you always
answer? summed up that temptation
and distraction.
Did any one song determine the
album?s character or direction?
TRO: By The River and Valentine
cover our experimental, atmospheric
side as well as the more classic, epic
side. Hopefully we?ve captured a bit of
both. After You?re Gone may point to
where we?re going next sonically.
Tom Chaplin recently told SFTW a
Keane return might be on the cards.
TRO: I think the four of us recognise
we make great music together and
there?s definitely a feeling in the air that
we?ve still got more to say.

134mins (U)
TO celebrate its 50th anniversary,
the Stanley Kubrick classic is being
re-released in 70mm, unrestored
format, which is as close to the
original as you?re ever going to get.
This means we get a chance to
revaluate what can be regarded as
the most important sci-fi film ever.
Without it, we would arguably
have had a very different Star Wars
experience, Christopher Nolan
would be a fair few films light and
?sinister robots? would only be a
local pub band rather than an
entire sub-genre. But this doesn?t
HHHH
mean it?s perfect. I found it
incredibly hard to watch and it
feels, to these 2018 eyes, like a bit
of an indulgent chore. I
appreciated the craft without a
doubt, but by God I just wanted it
to get the hell on with things.
As astronaut David watches his
life flash by in an instant as the film
climaxes, I knew how he felt.
It?s a glorious technical and
creative achievement, and its
impact on the arts is incalculable ?
but I found myself fidgeting. Yes,
I?m a heathen, bite me.

BASED on the 2007 Ian McEwan

Florence and Edward ? newlyweds
spending their wedding night in a

For a traditional couple in 1962, a
marriage consummation was a
fraught exercise but here we have
inexperience mixed with baggage.
The result is a heartbreaking
episode which changes the course
of their lives for ever. It packs an
incredible emotional wallop.
You cannot help but chuckle at

Saoirse Ronan acts everyone else

Maine are original, intelligent
and very scary.
In the 16th title, he investigates after a woman?s body is
found ? but not the baby she
had before dying. Meanwhile,
a small boy is receiving
spooky calls on a toy phone.
As Parker tries to find out

Dead good
DEADPOOL
has
always
gone against the grain of
superheroes.
Forgetting his god-awful debut in
X-Men
Origins,
Wade
Wilson?s
depressed, snarky alter-ego offered a
refreshing break from the selfaggrandisement
often
associated
with grown men bounding around
in costumes.
His first solo outing in 2016 ? a
huge passion project for Ryan
Reynolds, who has been given a cowriting credit this time ? raked in
�0million at the box office and
was the highest-grossing R-Rated
film of all time.
So the sequel which is Deadpool 2
was ordered immediately.
The danger this film faced was
the compelling but slightly lazy urge
to just do the same thing with more
people and louder noises.
On the one hand, this is largely
what it does. There aren?t any
DEADPOOL 2

HHHH
surprises in terms of tone or plot,
no one looks particularly stretched
at any point and there is a
tendency to rest on laurels.
But luckily no one is turning up
for Infinity War 2 here ? we?re still
pretty bruised after that saga.
I found myself pretty grateful for
some smut, smirks, swearing and
gratuitous violence ? all of which
Deadpool 2 offers in spades. I
bloody loved it.
Early on, a scene of love-laden
bliss is rudely interrupted as a
tragedy causes Deadpool to give up
on life ? relatively annoying when
you?re someone who can?t die.
The
film
is
framed
around
Russell, an angry mutant teenager
played by awesome Julian Dennison
(Hunt for the Wilderpeople) who is
seeking revenge on the orphanage
that treats their children with
wicked cruelty.
He is so volatile and dangerous,
a time-travelling part-cyborg called
Cable (Josh Brolin) arrives with the
aim of doing a Terminator and
changing the world?s cataclysmic
future. Deadpool sees Russell as his
surrogate son so sets out to protect
him ? forming an X-Force team.
Barbra Streisand gag
The team features the impossibly
lucky Domino (briliantly played by
Zazie Beetz), Shatterstar (Lewis
Tan),
Zeitgeist
(Bill
Skarsgard)
Bedlam (Terry Crews) and Peter
(Rob Delaney) ? a normal dadbod
bloke who just answered the ad out
of boredom.
Brolin manages to create a villain
with a story and pathos rather than
a hunk with a fist.
But the film?s calling card is also
its downside ? there is almost too
much to cope with. So many people,
so many gags, so much violence ?
you really do have to just lean back
and
let
it
pummel
you
into
submission.
By
the
time
you?ve
stopped
chuckling at a Barbra Streisand gag,
you?re staring agog at possibly the
most
hilariously
tasteless
Basic
Instinct parody ever.
It?s relentless and all the more
fabulous for it, battering you with
pop culture references.
Viewers never know which bits to
be taking seriously ? the frivolous is
mixed with the facetious and put
right next to the serious.
This action-packed laugh slightly
lacks the surprise we felt with the
first Deadpool and sometimes feels
like it traded its sharpness for scale.
But it is easily in a different class
to pretty much everything else out
there in its genre.
Will there be a third? Doubtful ?
but I doubt Deadpool himself would
give a damn.
A WHOLE cell block of criminal
talent has ganged up to mark
the tenth anniversary of

It covers everything from

A WHODUNNIT worthy of

If you can overlook the

it?s a solid hard SF

Jobs risk . . . Mothercare
SHOP AXE
AS PROFIT
PLUNGES
MOTHERCARE is to axe 50
underperforming stores as
its pre-tax profits crashed
to just �3million.
The figure for the year
to March is 88 per cent
lower than the year before,
mainly due to what the
retailer called a ?very difficult second half?.
The planned closures,
which will result in hundreds of job losses, will be
done through a company
voluntary arrangement,
which lets companies shut
loss-making shops and
secure rental discounts.
Mothercare has about
3,000 staff at 137 outlets.
As part of its CVA
restructuring, Mothercare
also announced a refinancing package worth up to
�3.5million. Shares shot
up nearly 24 per cent following the announcement.
Chairman Clive Whiley
said: ?These measures provide a renewed and stable
financial structure for the
business and will drive a
step change in Mothercare?s transformation.?
In a move that will stun
many observers, Mark
Newton Jones, axed as
chief executive last month,
will return to the job.
The man brought in to
replace him, David Wood,
will be managing director.

COMMENT
A COMPANY Voluntary
Agreement (CVA), a type of
insolvency procedure,
should be a last resort.
But a string of retailers
and restaurants ? such as
New Look, Byron and now
Carluccio ? have undertaken CVAs which allow
them to repay creditors
over time as well as shut
underperforming outlets
The process leaves landlords out of pocket.
So far, all the CVAs
proposed have won the
backing of creditors. But
House of Fraser bosses are
scrambling to secure the
backing of landlords. A
wider backlash looms.

Last year e-commerce giant AMAZON took

Ocado boss Tim Steiner, right as Star Wars?
Han Solo, hailed a ?transformative relationship
which will reshape the food retailing industry
in the US in the years to come?.
The tie-up with Kroger, the largest
US grocery chain, will see the Brit
firm recreate 20 automated warehouses in three years.
Kroger will also take a five

Ocado?s shares, shorted by
investors gambling it could not
deliver expansion plans, closed

ALLIED HEALTHCARE, one

for elderly and vulnerable
people, has been thrown
a lifeline by its creditors
as it battles rising costs.
The firm, which has
almost 9,000 staff caring
for 13,500 people, has
secured a company voluntary arrangement with
creditors that allows it to
continue to operate.
More than 80 per cent
of
Allied?s

continuity of care?.
But there are no plans

TEES-ING A
NEW IDEA
A GAME-changing �illion
careers initiative linking
almost 100,000 young peple
with more than 1,000 local
businesses has been
launched.
The scheme by Tees Valley
Combined Authority will
involve every school and
college in the North East.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben
Houchen hopes it will shake
up careers education across
the country.
The unemployment rate for
young people in Tees Valley is
well above the UK average.
Businesses point to a
shortage in skills needed to
help them grow.
Research shows just four
instances of contact with
employers ? such as career
insights, mentoring and work
experience ? reduce a pupil?s
chances of becoming
unemployed and mean they
earn 22 per cent more.
The initiative will see all
people aged 11 to 18 receive at
least seven such employer
contact activities.
Mr Houchen said: ?Career
education can be a postcode
lottery. We are going above
and beyond to equip our
young people with skills to
flourish and businesses with
expertise to grow.
?This initiative will provide a
blueprint for careers
programmes across the UK.?

WORK AFTER STROKE
ONE in four strokes hits people of
working age ? and the employer
is legally bound to do all they can
to ensure it does not stop the
person keeping their job or

stroke in 2015 that paralysed her ?
but after six months? rehab she
walked out of hospital. The

Londonderry, began a phased

collected an adapted car.
Clodagh, presented with the

LION IS
DAN ?N
DUSTED
STEVE JONES at York
ROARING LION stormed
to Dante glory ? but
John Gosden warned
punters to hold their
Investec Derby bets.
Bookies rushed to
slash his Epsom Classic
odds to 6-1 second
favourite behind red-hot
odds-on Saxon Warrior
after his success in the
York Group 2 contest.
He looks a credible
opponent to Aidan
O?Brien?s 2,000 Guineas
hero but trainer Gosden,
saddling his third Dante
winner in the last four
years, revealed Roaring
Lion could head to the
French Derby instead.
He said: ?That has confirmed Saxon Warrior is
THE horse.
?He beat us in the
Racing Post Trophy at
MURPHY . . . Lion strike
Doncaster and in the
2,000 Guineas, which is
the best trial. We?ve
won the second-best
trial in emphatic style.
He has been training
beautifully at home ?
he?s got himself mentally in the zone. He?s a
complete playboy, his
trick is rearing up.
?We just have to work
out whether we go to
Epsom or to France for
the Prix du Jockey Club.
?There?s plenty to
think about. There?ll be
no decision made in a
hurry.?
Oisin Murphy cruised
through the field on the
3-1 favourite. He took
up the running two out
and scooted four and a
half lengths clear.
Gosden was completing a double after star
filly Coronet, the 2-1
favourite, made a winning return in the
Middleton Stakes under
Frankie Dettori.
The successful jockey
beamed: ?She?s the best
ride. She?s brilliant,
she?s honest and she
has an engine.
?It?s just nice to be
around her. When you
get up in a morning and
see your name down to
ride her it?s a privilege.?

EACH-WAY THIEF
SNAZZY (2.20 York) met trouble on debut at Newcastle
yet still won with plenty in hand. She is a well-bred filly
to follow from an upwardly-mobile yard. Have an eachway double with CAPTON (4.05 York). Henry Candy has
his string in fine form and Ryan Moore is an eye-catching booking for this five-year-old who likes to dominate.

MANY a good tune is played on a STRADIVARIUS.

OWEN FARRELL will frighten
England back to winning ways
the team. He is a different character
as captain in South Africa.
and has a different cultural backRed Rose boss Eddie Jones com-
pared the Red Rose star to his former
Wallabies general George Gregan ?
who ruled Australia with an iron fist
even though he was just 5ft 8in.
Ex-Oz coach Jones tips hardman
Farrell ? who is currently preparing
for Saracens? Premiership semi-final
against Wasps tomorrow ? to
emulate the scrum-half?s scary style
against the Springboks next month.
Jones said: ?I have never seen a
stronger winner than George.
?He was super on the field, not as
good off it. He demanded
stuff from the team ? and
they were frightened not to
give it to him.?
Gregan (right) was skipper in
the 2003 World Cup final when
Jones? side lost to England.
He won an Oz record 139
caps and equalled the record
of England?s Will Carling for
most Tests as captain with 59
? since passed by John Smit, Brian
O?Driscoll and Richie McCaw.
England are still smarting from
finishing a shocking Six Nations
with three defeats in a row.
Jones? squad is shorn of 20 players
either injured or resting ? including
regular skipper Dylan Hartley, who
is recovering from concussion.
Farrell, 26, will lead the Red Rose
in the Tests on June 9, 16 and 23.
And when asked if the Saracens
star has the same drive and fearfactor as Gregan, Jones said: ?That
is probably close to the mark, so we
need to find people who can work
off the field to help him.
?Owen will put his own stamp on
ground. Dylan is from Rotorua,
Owen is from Wigan.
?We don?t want him to lose the
great work Dylan has done. We want
to keep the good things and then
bring his own flavour to the table.
?You don?t expect a captain to
immediately be this all-conquering
figure. It takes time.
?Owen has got the job for South
Africa so he has five weeks to find
his own style and influence the team.?
Jones packs up his training camp
in Brighton today ? his first there
since Wasps? Sam Jones, 26,
had to retire as a result of a
leg injury suffered during a
judo session with England on
the South Coast in 2016.
Jones no longer has judo in
his training programme but
he added: ?I regret any player
getting injured. But I don?t
regret
anything
on
the
training that day at all.
?We consistently do wrestling, I?ve
coached since 1996 and every coach
does wrestling. It?s an important
part of the game.?
Jones insists he will not turn into
a ?nut case? worrying about losing
his defensive guru if Paul Gustard
lands the top job at Harlequins.
Gustard, sevens specialist Ben
Ryan and Wales coach Shaun
Edwards are on Quins? shortlist.
But Jones said: ?If I dealt in
rumours I would be a nut case and
I?m close enough to that as it is.
?If don?t have a contingency plan ?
if a situation arises, I?ll deal with it.?

Raf out to

Toon bill
By DAVID COVERDALE
RAFA BENITEZ could dodge
a �illion bill if he quits
Newcastle ? by claiming
constructive dismissal.
West Ham target Rafa?s
Toon deal states he owes
the club a year?s salary if
he breaks his contract,
which has 12 months left.
But SunSport understands Benitez?s lawyers
believe he would win a
case against Newcastle if
he was to walk away.
They think owner Mike
Ashley has broken promises made to the Spaniard.
Rafa could therefore
argue he had no option but
to resign, thus avoiding the
� penalty.
At this stage, Benitez?s
preference is to stay at St
James? Park, providing he
gets budget assurances.
And if he did go, it would
more likely be because
another club had come in
for him and paid Toon �
compensation, rather than
him having to quit.
But the fact Benitez?s
legal team have looked
into grounds for constructive dismissal show how
frustrated he has become.
Benitez, 58, spent around
�m last summer, less
than expected. He further
lost trust in Ashley in the
January window when just
three loan signings arrived.
It means Benitez will not
sign a new deal unless he
receives cast-iron guarantees about transfer funds
and how he can spend it.
Talks over a new deal at
St James? have made little
progress since they began
at the end of last month.
This deadlock has led
West Ham to believe they

FA CUP FINALL
TOMORROW, 5.15pm, BBC1 & BT SPORT 2 AND LIVE COMMENTARY ON
EXCLUSIVE
RIFT . . . Conte gave Costa the boot
ANYONE who tells you an FA
Cup final no longer means
anything to teams has clearly
not played in one.
I did in 1999 and I can tell you
it
is
something
special,
something unique.
Ask Manchester United
or Chelsea?s players after
tomorrow?s
Wembley
showpiece and they will
tell you the same.
Its history and importance still resonates.
I played at Wembley for
Aston Villa in the 1996
League
Cup
final,
beating Leeds 3-0.
That was special
but to be part of the
1999 FA Cup final on
the way to the Treble
with
United
was
something else.
I was named as a
sub that day because
Sir
Alex
Ferguson
had told me he was
saving me for the
Champions
League
final ? but I still got on
after an hour and loved
the experience.
We pretty much cruised
that game against Newcastle,
winning
2-0,
sandwiched
between winning the league and
European Cup.
You only had to look at our
celebrations to see what it meant.
People more likely remember the
incredible semi-final when we
beat Arsenal in extra-time with
Ryan Giggs? wonder goal.
What I recall about that night
was the incredible atmosphere at
Villa Park and the scenes at the
end. If there is one thing wrong
with the current competition, it is
that those neutral club venues are
not used for semi-finals.
Wembley should be special and
not a venue for the last four.
It should be the icing on the
cake for players and fans.
It will still be special today and
I fully expect United to win.
I?m not being biased ? I just
believe they are the better side.
Chelsea have had a really poor
season and seem to be ending it
with something of a whimper.
Of course they?ll lift themselves
for this ? but so will United.
They just need to do that for
every game next season.
I think the fact they haven?t
always been able to do that has
been the major cause of frustration for the manager this season.
There is no way Manchester City
are 19 points better than this
United team.
This is a very good side that
Jose Mourinho has assembled.
The proof has been there with
victories over Spurs at Wembley,

WHO WAS AN FA CUP WINNER WITH UNITED 19 YEARS AGO
the comeback against City in the
derby and home wins over both
Chelsea and Liverpool.
The away win at Arsenal was a
cracker, too. You cannot tell me
those were not top performances.
But you can never take your
opponent for granted and I think
the manager has seen performance
levels drop based on the opposition at times this season.
What the players must recognise
is what I did very early on from
my time at the club, that every
opponent raises their game to play
Manchester United. Aston Villa is
a big club but it was nothing like
what you faced as a United player.
The
extra
effort
opponents
seemed to put in because it was
Manchester United was amazing.
You could see it in their eyes
how much they wanted to beat us.
Sir Alex said what we had to do
against the so-called lesser side
was match them for desire and
effort. If we did, our superior
ability would win the game.
And there is no lack of ability
in this team. You look at Lukaku,
Rashford, Sanchez, Lingard, Pogba,
Mata, these are all great players.
It has the league?s second-best
defensive record and, in David De
Gea, the best keeper in the world.
They just need to get that
mentality right for every game.
United have gone from sixth to
second and are now in a third
major final in two seasons.
Mourinho has got the club going
in the right direction again.
Wembley today will provide
another example of that.

WOODWARD . . . revenue
The pair traded insults
most of the season. But the
Old Trafford chief claims he
settled his differences with
the boss of his old club after
Manchester United?s 2-1 win
over Chelsea in February.
Mourinho
said:
?He
stretched out, I stretched, we
got bored.
?After the game here in
nothing's wrong.?
Mourinho revealed he has
picked a new No 2 to replace
Rui Faria ? despite claiming
last week the job would be
left open for newly-retired
midfielder Michael Carrick.
Faria quits after tomorrow?s
final and Mourinho had said
he would wait until Carrick
had completed all his qualifi-
cations before promoting him
from the coaching set-up.
But yesterday the Portuguese
said: ?It?s a person coming
who worked with me before. I
can?t say the name because
he?s still linked to another club.
?Michael Carrick becomes a
coach but I?m looking for two
new people on the team.
?There
are
many
good
coaches but I like to make
my assistants.
?I do not like trained
coaches, I like to shape them
in my way of thinking. They
grow with me and I
grow with them.?
United finishing second
to rivals Manchester City
in the Premier League is
making no difference to
their finances.
The
club
raked
in
�7.1million between January and March 2018 ? up 8.1
per cent from last year.
Executive vice chairman Ed
Woodward admitted: ?Playing
performance does not really
have a meaningful impact on
the commercial side.?
That is the view of former Blues
and Nigeria star Celestine Babayaro,
who reckons not even winning the
FA Cup against Manchester United
tomorrow would be enough to save
the Italian?s job.
Conte?s two years in charge have
been marred by run-ins with Diego
Costa ? who was born in Brazil but
chose to play for Spain ? plus
David Luiz and Willian.
Babayaro, who spent eight seasons
at Stamford Bridge from 1997, says
it has led to wider discontent.
He added: ?With the Brazilians, if
you touch one of them, then you
touch all of them.
?They are like a family. Conte got
rid of Costa, doesn?t
play Luiz and Willian struggles to get
in. These are players
he won the Premier
League with.
?The years have
gone when managers
had all the power.
It?s not like that any
more. Conte has not
helped himself.
?When you see press conferences
you pick up on his attitude. His
players will sense that too. It?s like
he doesn?t want to be there.
?If he can give a striker at the
level of Costa a text message saying
we don?t need you any more last
summer, then fans would have
expected
someone
like
Robert
Lewandowski to replace him.?
But Babayaro is excited to see his
home country take on England next
Saturday with more than 6,000 Super
Eagles fans expected at Wembley.
Babayaro (above), 39, added: ?It?s
the place everyone wants to play.?

PAY . . . Low gets less
Low pay
a shock
IT will come as a surprise
to Germany?s World Cupwinning manager Joachim
Low
that
his
basic
salary is less than Gareth
Southgate?s.
Low?s pay packet ?
which is slightly below the
�5million-a-year paid to
England?s head coach ?
is boosted by commercial
arrangements negotiated
by the German FA.
The Three Lions have an
informal
information
exchange with Germany,
which includes the wages
of some of the top
earners in each organisation, as well as training
and
sports
science
developments.
Although Southgate is
already on a good whack,

THE idea Massimiliano
Allegri

an
interview for the Arsenal
job seems all the more
remarkable,
considering
he was approached about
the post last summer.
Former
midfielder
Allegri, 50, has won four
successive Serie A titles
with Juventus.
And he already had
one in the bag from his
stint at Milan by the
time he arrived in Turin.
The Italian coach has
also made it into two
Champions League finals
with Juve.
He hardly needs to put
on a Powerpoint presentation to get a job with
the sixth-best team in
the Premier League.
Ditch the
invasion
FANS of Fulham and
Aston
Villa
can
be
forgiven
for
getting
caught up in the moment.
But invading the pitch
after reaching the play-off
final is all a bit much.
Fulham?s players went
along with it after they
beat Derby at Craven
Cottage when they were
hoisted into the air by
their excitable supporters.
Fortunately boss Slavisa
Jokanovic soon brought
them back down to earth
by reminding his players
they still have it all to do
in the final.
The two sides meet at
Wembley on May 26.

JOSE?S LOST FANS? LOVE
THE special bond is
broken.
Jose Mourinho, winner
of three Premier League
titles at Chelsea, does
not mean very much at
Stamford
Bridge
any
more.
When the Special One
leads Manchester United out
at Wembley tomorrow, he will
be greeted with a mixture
of indifference and disdain
by Blues supporters.
The great shame is that
all the goodwill has gone.
These days, just being Jose
is enough to make him
the sworn enemy of every
Chelsea fan at Wembley.
Managing
United
only
makes it worse.
The genuine affection, the
adulation and the love for
the man who led Chelsea to
their first league title in 50
years has disappeared.
He
turned
a
dressing
room
of
under-achievers,
including John Terry, Frank
Lampard
and
Joe
Cole,
into serial champions under
his leadership.
Mourinho promised trophies and delivered them in
bucket-loads.
He is the greatest manager
in Chelsea history yet he
does not command respect
or appreciation at the Bridge.
It did not help when he
antagonised
Chelsea
supporters by repeatedly patting
United?s badge after Antonio
Conte?s side walloped them
4-0 when he returned to the
Bridge in October 2016.
A few months later, on the
night N?Golo Kante scored
the winning goal in an
FA Cup tie at Chelsea,
Mourinho was taunted
with cries of ?Judas?
from the East Stand?s
shallow low tier.
It was only a few
idiots
but
it
was
certainly loud enough
for Mourinho to hear
them baiting him a
few rows back from
United?s dug-out.
He reacted, reminding the fans who
remained loyal to him right
up until his second spell
ended in December 2015 that
he was ?still No 1?.
The reality, as much as
Mourinho will hate it, is that
Conte (above) has replaced
him in the affections of
Chelsea?s fans.
There are some who still
wish Mourinho?s relationship
could one day be repaired.

would

of their matchday ritual.

but pie and mash at one of
the catering stalls outside
the Stratford venue will set

Leave it out, squire.
the
Chelsea
Supporters
Group, still speaks warmly
about the man who made
the modern Chelsea.
She said: ?A lot of Chelsea
fans hate him, but we
should be building statues of
him at Stamford Bridge.
?The Judas chants were
derogatory, unnecessary and
disrespectful to his achievements. Some Chelsea fans
actively hate him. The great
shame is that the
relationship has been
soured.
?I?ve no doubt some
people will boo him
at Wembley, but I
won?t be one of them.
?If he acts up, or
runs down the touchline, then it will only
antagonise people.
?The reality is that
both
sides
should
take responsibility because it
should not be like this.?
Fiorellino,
who
backed
Mourinho right up until the
end of his second spell at
Stamford Bridge, is right.
For all the dramas, the
arguments and the bust-ups
down the years, he is an
excellent football manager.

knows all of that will be

ENGLAND
BEFORE
Euro
96,
the
last time England were
even remotely successful
at a tournament, Gareth
Southgate spent three days
on the lash in Magaluf.
He did swerve the infamous
?dentist chair? drinking session
in Hong Kong later on in that
summer?s build-up.
But England?s manager is not
willing to play the strict moralising
disciplinarian with this year?s World
Cup squad.
In fact, Southgate is determined
not to allow himself or his players
to be crippled by the self-doubts,
paranoia and fear of failure which
have affected too many England
teams at tournaments.
Sure, Southgate is blessed with
low expectations ? but he is also
relaxed in the belief he is giving
England the best opportunity to
enjoy relative success in Russia.
For the first time in 14 years, you
feel, England could go to a major
tournament and not stink the place
out.
England?s players are currently
enjoying a week?s holiday before
those not involved in the FA Cup
and Champions League finals meet
up on Sunday.
But when asked whether he was
worried what they?d get up to,
Southgate replied: ?I?m not interested
in what they do. It?s four weeks
before we have a competitive game.
?Before Euro 96 I had three days
in Magaluf with Aston Villa, so
it would be a bit hypocritical
to discuss what the correct preparation was.
?But I went for a run on a couple
of mornings. It might have been a
run back home at night!?
Southgate sounds like the sort of
boss you?d enjoy working for in any
walk of life ? treating his men like
adults and not cluttering their minds
with management jargon.
?Everything in a player?s life now
is, ?Fill this bloody form in?, ?How do
you feel?? ,? he said.
?There?s a danger we overfill them
with professionalism and ?doing the
right thing?.
?A lot of them don?t drink but
some do and some need to wind
down in a different way.
?I have a drink at times when I
need one, maybe there will be more
of that in the future, I don?t know . . .
?They need a switch off and I
don?t see an issue with it in the next
few days, most have gone away with
their partners and have young kids
anyway.
?But those that don?t, they are
physically in good shape, they need
a mental switch-off.
?Then when we?re in, we work, it
will be spot-on. The focus will be
intense.
?But, blimey, they get two days off
with their clubs nowadays and
they?re jetting everywhere.
?That?s the world they can live in
because of their finances.
?You see players all around the
world posting pictures so travelling
is not a big issue.
?They?ve had a long season. The
mental freshness is key.?
Part
of
Southgate?s
relaxed
demeanour is that he trusts these 23
players ? perhaps unlike some of
the big-name casualties of his reign,
such as Wayne Rooney and Jack
Wilshere, as well as Jonjo Shelvey,
who was touted as a potential wildcard. And on a personal level,
?I?d be hypocrite
to ban players
from drinking?
Dave Kidd
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
Southgate seems determined to disprove the old adage that this
?impossible job? sends them all mad
in the end.
He said: ?The thing that bothers
me is everybody keeps asking me
about the pressure and I start to
think, ?Bloody hell, maybe I?m not
seeing what it should be?.
?But I think, ?Where does pressure
come from??. The more you read and

would probably feel more anxious.

worrying about what might happen
and what we might lose, we have to
have a positive mind-set of, ?How far
can we go?? .?
Southgate acknowledges his squad
has weaknesses.
No experience or form in the
goalkeeping department and little
creativity in central midfield.
Yet in the tournament opener
against Tunisia on June 18, he will
send out a team with pace to burn
? and ?Pace always bloody frightened me as a defender because I
didn?t have any?.
At England?s Russian base-camp,
Southgate
favours
a
laid-back
approach ? expecting his men to
play the Fortnite video game which
is gripping the world?s youth, as well
as taking strolls to the seafront. He will not ban
mobiles from team meals
nor forbid social media ?
although he will advise
players not to read responses
because
?You
can?t
but
think about the one bu**er
who gives you advice you
don?t want to hear, even if
there are 50 good things?.
There will be plenty of
bu**ers
willing
to
give
Southgate
advice
this
summer.
But England?s unflappable
manager is determined not to
let them grind him down.

He said: ?Two games on the

?We didn?t want a third game.

Watford?s Nathaniel Chalobah

England?s under-21s.
Southgate added: ?We wanted to

?We might have brought a couple
more who couldn?t go to Toulon.

From Back Page
weeks ago at Crystal Palace. He?s
having a huge impact on the game
and there?s still more to come.
?He?s 6ft 4ins, technically outstanding, he can beat players,
dribble past players, retain the
ball and slide passes.
?I?m thinking ?go on, go again?.
He just needs to keep progressing
and time to do that.
?That applies to so many of
them. That?s the beauty of the age
they?re at.?
Only five of the England squad
were in Brazil for the disastrous
2014 World Cup and keeper Nick
Pope and full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold are both uncapped.
Southgate said: ?I don?t see it as
a gamble and I don?t think being
free of inhibition is gambling.
?I think it?s being fearless in
how we want to play, being brave
enough to put people in and not
think ?well, he?s the best player
but he?s young, maybe we should
pick a lesser player who?s a bit
more experienced?.
?You can make excuses at times
for not putting young people in.
?You
accept
they?ll
make
mistakes because of the way we?re
asking them to play.
?There?s not a player in the
squad I would have any concerns
about starting in the first match.
That?s why we have picked them.?

STARS? PIP TALK
THREE LIONS stars will be able to
have sessions with psychologist
Pippa Grange in Russia.
She arrived as the FA?s head of
people and development earlier
this year.
Psychiatrist Steve Peters worked
with Roy Hodgson?s squad at the
2014 World Cup finals
England boss Gareth Southgate
said: ?We have a department who
work on the development of people
and teams, both staff and players,
so Pippa Grange is head of that
department. She was with us in
By CHARLIE WYETT
March and she will come with us to
the finals.
?She is not just there for
psychology and it is not the answer
to everything that we might do.
?I think she will be a strong
and important addition to the
team.?
Dr Grange has been briefed with
?creating a high performance culture and psychological resilience
across all men?s and women?s
national teams?.
Lions are disadvantaged by the
lack of Englishmen playing in the
Premier League.
He said: ?Maybe it?s brave to
take players without a number of
caps but we have to give these
guys belief.
?We?re picking them not because
they?re young but because they are
the best in their positions.
?We pick from 33 per cent of the
Premier League. It is quite unique.?
Southgate was also unimpressed
by the FA mocking Harry Kane.
A tweet after Manchester United?s
2-1 FA Cup win over Tottenham
asked Chris Smalling ?What?s in
your pocket?? and featured a clip
of him saying ?Harry Kane?.
Southgate added: ?There was a
good internal discussion and we
made an apology pretty quickly to
Harry and to Tottenham..?
Gareth tells
lads to lead
THERE is nowhere to hide.
On the pitch, in the dressing
room, or in the canteen, Gareth
Southgate wants to hear from
some big personalities in this
England side.
A World Cup is no place for
the meek and mild.
Southgate wants his young
team to have enough about
them to kick, bite, scream and
shout at each other if anyone
steps out of line.
Jordan Pickford, John Stones,
Gary Cahill, Jordan Henderson,
Eric Dier, Harry Kane and the
rest of the gang will police the
dressing room in Russia.
England?s boss said: ?There?s
one or two who are closer than
others ? you rarely see Jesse
Lingard or Marcus Rashford
without them holding hands.
?They get on and that is a
starting point. At times I think
they get on too well.
?The next stage of a team is
they start to pull each other in
the right direction, raising the
standard of how we train and
getting hold of each other on
the pitch. But getting on is not
enough, we?ve got to go deeper.
?They cannot be afraid of
upsetting each other ? the key
is to be brave enough to have
conversations that need to be
had at certain times.?
Those alliances are crucial.
Gary
Neville
often
spoke
about the bond he formed with
David Beckham, the trust that
existed between them as they
made their way through the
Manchester United set-up.
When they progressed to play
for England they looked out for
each other.
When things went wrong, they
backed each other up.
Southgate wants his players to
speak out, to know that they
can get things off their chest
without risking relationships or
jeopardising their place.
He added: ?It is one of the
things that makes a winning
team if they are comfortable
enough with each other so that
when you have those conversations it is not held against you.
?You move on quickly. Unless
By NEIL
ASHTON
Chief Football Reporter
you are close it is difficult to
have that conversation because
you don?t know how the guy
next to you is going to react.?
England?s players are selfregulating, establishing a series
of social rules within the camp.
For instance, mobile phones
are frowned upon ? but not
banned ? at mealtimes.
Southgate wants to watch this
squad grow, to have enough
confidence and self-belief to
step out of the Big Brother
house when they land in Russia.
He added: ?The environment
is important.
?People take the lead from the
leader ? how relaxed in terms
of opportunities to go out of the
hotel, to go sightseeing, just to
escape the bubble. It can?t just
be football 24 hours a day.
?They might do a couple of
things they are criticised for, but
I have to be brave enough to
say I?m prepared for them to go
into Saint Petersburg to sightsee, see families or whatever.
?We are creating an adult
environment. Most of them have
young children. I am not going
to treat them like children.?
Southgate is putting his stamp
on this squad, putting a relaxed
but respectful framework in
place for his players.
He said: ?I am at a stage in
my life where I can be positive
because I?m free of the shackles.
?I think the public recognise
where we?re at. To give this
team a bit of space would be
good. Allowing these players to
grow and fulfil their potential is
the right thing to do.?
If he is right, they might just
have something to shout about.

Chelsea defender Cahill (left),
32, has captained England on
five occasions but looked set to
miss out on Russia until Liverpool?s Joe Gomez was injured.
Laughing, Southgate said: ?I?d
left Gary Cahill out of the
squad in March and I had a
little bet with myself that if I
called he wouldn?t pick up.
?He didn?t pick up at first
was nice.
?He?s got himself back in the

and
has
performed well.
?He looks happier in himself
and in his game.
?So that was nice to be able
to at least let him know that
the reason for the call was a
good one.?
Defender Kyle Walker posted
an image on social media
implying that he also missed a
call from the England boss.
Former Three Lions skipper
Bryan Robson feels Manchester
United?s 31-cap defender Chris
Smalling should also have been
called-up.
United icon Robson said: ?I
was surprised. I don't think
England have a better defender.
?People should take note of
how good Chris is as a
defender, making tackles, great
clearances ? I think it?s a
mistake not taking him.?
