US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken warned Russian President Vladimir Putin he would be making a “serious mistake” if he invaded following a build-up of Russian troops, tanks and artillery near the Ukrainian border. And US Vice President Kamala Harris said the “eyes of the world” are on the border. Meanwhile, the EU has accused Belarus dictator Alexander Lukashenko of forcing migrants to make illegal crossings into Poland in a cynical attempt to destabilise the bloc using vulnerable people as his weapon. In response, Polish armed forces moved 15,000 troops to the region. Mr Lukashenko was reported to have said: “They are Kurds, and the Kurds are militant. When Poles beat them, cut them, torment them, etc, they become desperate. One rifle, one gun, and armed conflict is ready.” news@dailystar.co.uk Man saved from 15hr 999 delay AN elderly man who fell and broke his hip was taken to hospital by neighbours after they learned an ambulance would take 15 hours.

The character, who came out as gay in 2016, will start a relationship with billionaire fashion mogul Michael De Graaf. The episode has been created by Rob LaZebnik and his son Johnny, who inspired him to write about Smithers’ coming out. Johnny said: “Getting to sit down and write jokes with him was so much fun. There were some moments where I was like, ‘Dad, that’s disgusting – we can’t put that on television.’” DREAM: Former Doctor Who actor is launching a debut single SPACE rocker Peter targets POP chartS ACTOR Peter Capaldi is hoping to storm the charts with his debut single – 40 years after first dreaming of pop fame. The former Doctor Who actor, 63, is releasing his first record next week after he spent years in punk group Bastards From Hell. But he insists he is not after a chart battle with his singer-songwriter second cousin Lewis Capaldi, 25. Peter said: “I’m an enthusiastic amateur having a go. “It’s largely the same stuff that was floating round my head post art school, Glasgow, circa 1979, set in neon and rain. Except I’m 40 years older.” Capaldi’s upcoming St Christopher album is emblazoned with an image of a staff-wielding martyr carrying a child through a fierce storm. A fan said one tune on ■■ by aaron tinney Capaldi’s record is “full Outer Limits” and left them clueless about what he will do next. The track, titled The Great Magnificence, features lyrics that would have been perfect for mock prog rock morons Spinal Tap. They include: “I walk the streets and alleyways, I creep upon the stair, I am the great magnificence, The lord of fire and air.” Capaldi, who played spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in The Thick Of It, said he is reinventing himself as a rocker. He said: “I enjoy the freedom of music. You can respond to a sound or a tone or a chord and try to construct something that goes with that or against it.” He also revealed he had wanted to bring darkness and mystery to his portrayal of Doctor Who. news@dailystar.co.uk HIGH NOTE: Capaldi

4 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 DS1ST XMAS MEAT CRISIS ON MENU Truckers drive off ALMOST three quarters of lorry drivers expect to quit the industry in the next three years. A survey of more than 2,500 truckers found most of those likely to find other jobs blame poor working conditions. Driver recruitment firm Pertemps, which commissioned the research, said it would “fan the flames” that are disrupting UK supply chains. John Poliquin, from the company, added: “I was bowled over by the starkness of how these people feel. “It’s important to value these people for what they do and have done all through the pandemic. “There has to be that level of respect, that level of professionalism and we need to show the value they have.” Short of tablets DON’T overdo it at the Christmas knees-up... Britain is suffering a shortage of painkillers. As the traditional festive parties loom, official figures have revealed shortages of tablets such as ibuprofen and paracetamol as shoppers stock up to cope with possible Covid symptoms, flu and colds. Researchers for the Office of National Statistics visited hundreds of stores and found 15.6% of shops were low or out of ibuprofen while the figure for paracetamol was 14.5%. Retail analyst Fraser McKevitt said: “Consumers are stocking up on products to make them feel better. “Cold treatment sales this month doubled year over year, while cough fluids rose 147%.” Nanny’s £9k gig A FAMILY is looking for a nanny to take care of their fiveyear-old twins over Christmas and New Year – for £9,000. The successful candidate would earn £600 per day – more than the UK’s average weekly take home pay. But applicants have to be willing to give up seeing their own family over the festive season, and be on hand 24/7 between December 22 and January 5 to tend to the twins. The job ad said it would be in a castle close to Edinburgh, where the family is staying. The nanny, who will not be required to cook or clean, will be in charge of “generally ensuring children are entertained” with possible activities including outdoor walks, games, crafts and day trips. ★A clever mum cuts her carbon footprint and spending by renting her kids’ presents and sending them back when they get bored.

WE’RE NOT HAPPY TURKEYS are gonna be stuffed after all this Christmas, but cows and pigs will get off lightly. Extra birds are being brought in from abroad to meet demand amid an HGV driver crisis, lack of packaging staff and CO2 supply, as well as global supply chain delays. But other foods, including beef and pork will be harder to get hold of this festive season. And pubs and eateries have been told to keep Christmas menus vague to avoid customers being disappointed. Rachel Dobson, boss of Lynx Purchasing, warned: “The challenge is as soon as one gap is plugged, another one opens somewhere else. “There were fears of a turkey shortage as British producers deal with labour shortages and It pays to swap around GOBBLED UP: Turkeys will be available this year ■■ by marc walker the problems with CO2 supply, but it now looks like suppliers will be able to meet demand through imports. “However, there are similar issues facing producers of beef, pork and salmon.” She added: “It’s not always clear exactly where and when shortages will become an issue.” Meanwhile, Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney has urged the world to ditch meat in favour of plant-based diets. Macca, 79, was joined by daughter Stella, Hollywood stars Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara and Brit actor Peter Egan in calling on leaders at COP26 to sign the Plant Based Treaty.

DS1ST ORDEAL: Davis Steph’s stalker is guilty A MAN has admitted stalking former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis. Alex Boston had been “bombarding her with messages via social media, delivering letters and gifts, and loitering outside her home”, a court heard. The Celeb Big Brother star had panic attacks and quit her property due to a “frightening and distressing campaign of obsessive and unwanted contact”. Boston, 43, of Moreton, Wirral, pleaded guilty to stalking at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court yesterday, prosecutors said. He was identified through his Instagram account and fingerprints on letters after harassing the actress between April 2020 and July this year. When police searched his home they discovered more letters intended for Stephanie, 28. The actress is best known for playing Sinead O’Connor on Hollyoaks and found fame on talent series Over The Rainbow. She has a four-year-old son with reality star Jeremy McConnell. Boston will be sentenced on December 22.

But earlier this week Bozo demanded his MPs devote themselves “above all to your constituents” instead of moonlighting.

6 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 Says We’re Brit of a turkey YOU can just imagine what those poor turkeys must have been thinking. Well, apart from “gobble, gobble, gobble” anyway. They must have thought that this was their year off from the Christmas dinner table amid worldwide shortages of literally everything. But because of a huge effort to import the birds from other countries, we’ll all be able to tuck in to one like usual. The only problem is that by putting so much focus on turkeys, there are now shortages of all the other meat or fish staples of our Xmas meal. Beef, pork and salmon are all now in short supply from abroad. For the love of all that is holy. What a shambles. It just goes to show how we’ve come to rely far too much on cheap imports. Our markets are so used to getting everything for a quid from countries like China we’ve got no plan B. We barely seem to grow or manufacture anything on a mass-scale anymore. It’s a joke. We are fast turning into a second-rate country. Markle on the mark NONE of us knows the real story when it comes to Thomas Markle and his publicity-shy daughter. An awful lot of mud has been slung from both sides. However, you can’t blame the bloke for having a pop at her and her hubby. From the start he looked an ill fit for the Royal Family. Scruffy, estranged and outspoken. It didn’t take long for him to be off the wedding list. And neither his daughter nor her ultrawoke ex-Prince have seen him since. Yet every time Thomas gives an interview he is consistent. He wants to make peace with his daughter and meet his grandkids. Most people would see this as a reasonable request. But instead the couple refuse to even acknowledge his existence. So if he wants to make jokes about the publicity-shy man being dropped on his head as a baby, then fair play to him. It’s an easy assumption to make, given some of the daft things he says. However, the real reason for the shy one’s “stupidity” is much easier to explain. It’s because he’s an upper-class twit born with a silver spoon in his mouth! Fok offed THE alcoholic spirit called Fok Hing Gin has been deemed “offensive” in a landmark ruling.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 7 JAIL: Henderson Sala trip boss is caged THE man who organised the flight in which footballer Emiliano Sala died has been jailed for 18 months. David Henderson, the plane’s operator, was convicted last month of endangering the safety of an aircraft. The businessman, 67, of Hotham, East Yorks, admitted another charge of trying to arrange a flight for a passenger without permission or authorisation. Yesterday his wife wept at Cardiff Crown Court when he was sentenced. Stephen Spence QC, defending Henderson, said: “He feels very strongly that he has completely let her down. That is something he finds very, very hard to bear.” Sala, 28, and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, died when their plane crashed into the English Channel in January 2019 following the Argentinian’s £15million transfer to Cardiff City from Nantes.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 11 things looking up for uk BOUNCE BACK SCEPTICAL: Mabbott Bug ‘not so super’ AN infectious disease expert said there is no evidence of a “super-cold” doing the rounds – people have just forgotten what it’s like to be unwell. Prof Neil Mabbott said the absence of most viruses last year due to lockdown had led to waning immunity. Prof Mabbott, from the University of Edinburgh, said: “I don’t think we have any evidence there is a super-cold. “We’ve had so little exposure immunity will have waned. We’ve also forgotten what it’s likely to have a cold. “I can’t remember the last time I had one – so far I’ve managed to dodge it.” A Further 145 Covid deaths took the UK total to 142,678. Another 40,375 cases were confirmed. The Government says 11,823,643 people have had booster or third jabs. WARNING: Mr Crabtree Care chief jabs blast A CARE home boss has warned that the Government’s no jab, no job rule will bring the sector “to its knees”. David Crabtree, of Crabtree Homes, in Ilkley, West Yorks, said: “I am in favour of people being vaccinated. “I’m pro-vaccine but I’m against it being forced onto people. It’s anti-democratic. “There’ll be staff shortages like nobody’s business “The social care industry will be on its knees.” Staff and volunteers in care homes in England are now legally required to be fully Covid jabbed unless exempt. The Government says it will protect vulnerable residents. JOY FOR BRITS a lotto love ★A COUPLE who pocketed a £2million Lottery jackpot say they plan to have “a wonderful time with the people we love” after losing relatives in the pandemic. Andrea Law, 43, and husband Mike, 50, won the cash on a Lucky Dip ticket bought online. Andrea, from Bromsgrove, Worcs, said: “We have lost a number of close family members, including Mike’s mum. ★ “It’s made it even more important for us to make memories. It isn’t about houses and cars, it’s about staying grounded and having a wonderful time with the people we love.” RETURN: Empty lockdown high street Economy’s on the up again as Europe hit ■■ by Aaron Tinney BRITAIN’s economy is headed for an astonishing bounce back by Christmas as Covid deaths and hospitalisations keep sliding. It comes as a deadly fourth wave of the disease rips through Europe, which could spark lockdown across the waters and devastate finances. Economist Simon French said: “It’s quite an achievement. The Chancellor intervened to prop up the UK economy on an unprecedented scale, spending in excess of £400billion. The result has been a very fast economic recovery. “Whilst the Bank of England must remain vigilant on inflation – set to rise to around 5% – it is also giving the recovery in both output and jobs every chance.” Booster The UK economy beat expectations by growing 0.6% in September as the construction sector picked up. But Prime Minister Boris Johnson last night warned of “gathering storm clouds” if Brits don’t get their booster vaccines amid Europe’s new Covid explosion. He said: “I’ve got to be absolutely frank with people, we’ve been here before – and we remember what happens when a wave starts rolling in. What I’m saying today is the urgency of getting that booster jab is more evident than ever.” Europe is back at the epicentre of the pandemic, with Germany, Norway, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia this week reported their highest daily infection rates to date. news@dailystar.co.uk OUT-OF-ORDER TEXTS bosses have been banned from sending staff out-of-hours texts and emails thanks to new “right to rest” laws.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 13 ‘IN OUR HEARTS’: Jack Tribute to dog kill boy THE family of a 10-yearold who was killed by a dog have said they are “absolutely heartbroken”.

Two men have both been released after voluntarily speaking to police. The attack happened in Penyrheol, Caerphilly. Paramedics arrived at the house on Monday but were unable to save Jack.

Shy chap ‘dropped on his ginger nut’ JIBE: Thomas Markle on GB News DAD SAYS HE TALKS RUBBISH THOMAS Markle claims ■■ by jack wetherill a publicity-shy man was “dropped on his head as a baby” because “everything he says is stupid”.

Mr Markle told GB News: “I refer to [his] ignorance. “I don’t know what happened, maybe he was dropped on his head as a baby, but the bottom line is everything that comes out of his mouth is always kind of stupid.” Meanwhile, the bloke’s actress wife reckoned her husband was always being attacked by the Royal Family over problems she had with her dad.

DS1ST with DANIEL JAMES CABOOTER’s BIRD ★YE, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, went into “personal exile” in Japan after gate-crashing Taylor Swift’s 2009 MTV Video Music Awards speech. The rapper was vilified for suggesting that Beyoncé deserved the award instead of Tay. ★Ye said: “Everyone was like, ‘You wrong for this one. You won’t win this. You shouldn’t have ran on stage – you were rude.’ God forbid.” Paul vamps it up for album! ...well there was a lot at stake DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 15 MIX MISS SI ROAST THE only thing Little Mix miss about losing Simon Cowell as their boss are his roast dinners. The girls wrote about the acrimonious break-up in tongue-in-cheek single Not A Pop Song, but have no hard feelings. Mixer Jade Thirlwall said: “There’s no bad blood. To be fair, we hardly ever saw him throughout our whole career. We only popped round his house a few times for a free dinner, do you know what I mean? But yeah, he does do a great roast dinner.” Little Mix play housewives with useless robot husbands in the hilarious video for new single No, which is out now. DANCE music legend Paul Oakenfold became a vampire to complete his new album. The Londoner, who now lives in LA, had been working on new LP Shine On for years, but went to extreme lengths to complete it during lockdown. Paul told me: “That was the moment where I went, ‘OK, I’ve got time to do this now’. My studio is in my house – I got lost in music. “Because I put bin liners on all the windows in my house, it got a little bit weird. I never knew what time it was. I didn’t even pick the phone up. I stayed isolated. Just me and music. ‘So I would wake up at three in the morning and go asleep at three in the afternoon, it kind of got a little bit mad because I never left the house and it was always dark. “But I could focus and I finished my record – 17 songs – then I tore all the bin liners down and thought I was going crazy.” Before we get to hear the album, DJ Oakie is performing as a special guest at Ministry Of Sound Classical tonight. The huge show at London’s O2 Arena celebrates the 30th anniversary of the world’s most iconic dance brand. He told me: “We have lost iconic club locations around Britain – Cream obviously, Gatecrasher, but Ministry is still going. “I have many great memories because I opened Ministry. It was designed to have the best sound and it’s like a tourist destination for clubbers.” And having spent so long in the States, it will be a celebration for his family too: “I was born and bred in London, so to come back home in front of an audience that you know and love is a big deal for me. “I’ve invited all my cousins, my friends, and I’m going to give a shout out to my mum.” We promise we’ll never put down a healthy dog. Tay wins war TAYLOR Swift is having the last laugh in her battle with Scooter Braun. The music mogul famously bought the rights to her first six albums against her will, but didn’t think she would actually go through with re-recording the music to reclaim them. According to reports, he thought she was “bluffing”, but Taylor has already released a re-recording of 2008 album Fearless and now 2012’s Red: Taylor’s Version featuring a slew of bonus material including new tunes with Ed Sheeran, pictured with Tay. At first Braun was benefiting from the dispute and said: “The message was: the controversy has been great for us. Every time she lights us up online, people go listen to those songs.” But now Taylor’s new recordings are outperforming the original versions by two to one, meaning Braun’s investment is becoming less and less profitable. ★TAYLOR will make more pop videos for her re-recorded Red album, at the behest of fans. The star debuted a 10-minute short film for her track All Too Well last night and hinted at more to come. ★She said: “(Fans) will let me know which songs should’ve been singles. They let me know which song did not get a video but should’ve got a video. I’m listening.” But Taylor did admit that she was in a “sad and upsetting” time in her life making the original version of All Too Well, which is about the end of her relationship with actor Jake Gyllenhaal in 2010. 8612 7453 or email james.cabooter@dailystar.co.uk Please promise to help us with a gift in your Will.

DS1ST GAME: Vorderman Carol keeps Count CAROL Vorderman has made it clear she still has a soft spot for Countdown. The TV star shared a picture of the show’s letter cards laid out on a table to spell out “Countdown”, “springbok” and “flankers”. Flankers refers to the rugby union position and Springboks is the South African rugby team’s nickname so named after the antelope.

Makers of the booze have been rapped after a member of the public complained. The moaner said: “The name is clearly intended to shock and be pronounced as an offensive term. “Marketing comments I’ve seen online include ‘Fokthehaters’ and ‘those who don’t like the name can FOK OFF’. “Despite claims this is a Hong Kong language term meaning good luck, it’s obvious the intention is to offend those who find swearing undesirable and unacceptable.” Incognito Group Limited, which produces the gin, said the name came from “Fuk Hing Lane”, a street in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. They also said “Fuk” had been changed to “Fok” to make it less offensive. The Fok Hing Gin website ■■ by samantha bartlett reads: “Our name sounds like a popular western profanity, you say? “While that is a remarkable coincidence, we are actually named after a street in our Hong Kong hometown; a name the locals have long since stopped guffawing at. “But many visitors to our fine city still see the funny side. We laugh at ourselves, so why not let visitors in on it?” Nicola Williams, chairman of the Independent Complaints Panel, said: “This is the first time a product’s name and packaging was considered under the rule in terms of offensive language. “It is not appropriate for marketing materials to purposefully link a name to profanity.” Incognito Group Limited said it would change Fok Hing Gin’s labels.

DS1ST £100k cheque scams A prolific fraudster who scammed a bank out of around £100,000 has been jailed. Samantha Jenson used fake identities to pose as business people and deposit counterfeit cheques at branches of Lloyds Bank in the midlands and north of England. Prosecutors said in the time between depositing the cheques and them being declined, the 55-yearold would withdraw cash. Derby Crown Court was told this was the most recent in a long line of frauds committed by Jenson. The latest offences took place between 2019 and 2020. Jenson, of Barnsley, South Yorks, was jailed for three years and nine months. Granny killer is caged A student who admitted in a truth or dare game to murdering his step-gran has been jailed for life. The family of Mary Gregory, 94, thought she died in a blaze after she dropped a cigarette at home in 2018. But police reopened the case a year later following a confession from Tiernan Darnton, 21, during a counselling session. He had also told two pals he killed Mrs Gregory – his stepdad’s mum – by using a lighter to set a curtain on fire at her bungalow in Heysham, Lancs. Sentencing Darnton to at least 15 years, Mrs Justice Yip told him at Preston Crown Court: “Murder had been on your mind for some time. You were fascinated by serial killers and their crimes.” Trott off with Del Boy’s van TELLY LEGENDS: Rodney, Del & Grandad ■UNDER THE HAMMER: Memorabilia including items from Del’s flat ★CUSHTY!

The 60-year-old star has admitted plans are in place in case her fellow Tiger King star, 58, is released from his 22-year term sooner than expected. Exotic is four years into his sentence, after being found guilty of a murder-for-hire plot against Carole and violations of animal welfare law. Carole said: “We have taken all kinds of precautions to protect me and my family and the sanctuary, and so we may have to step those up even further. “But right now we’ve done about all that we can do to ensure our safety.” The Big Cat Rescue founder claims the Netflix show only told part of the DS1ST PROTECTION: Carole is scared of Joe, left story of how she has been intimidated by Exotic and others.

Here is a brief and bizarre history of British seals. We have two different species of seals resident in the UK, the harbour (or common) seal, and the grey seal. The harbour seal is smaller, silvery grey with freckles all over, and has a dog-like face. The grey seal is not really grey. They are mottled brownish. They grow much larger than the harbour seals and have a pronounced “roman nose” compared to their smaller cousins. There are twice as many grey seals as there are harbour, and the UK holds a large proportion of the world’s population of greys. Harbour seals, as you may have guessed, tend to stay closer inland, while the greys venture further out. This is reflected in the Shetland Tip of the week Ivy is one of the last wild flowering plants at this time of year that is giving the vital nutrition insects need to survive the winter hibernation. Look islanders’ local names, the “Tangfish”, meaning seaweed fish, and “Haaf-fish”, meaning deep-sea fish. People in the Shetlands were not the only ones to consider seals fish, as, historically, wealthy Catholics on the mainland would eat them during lent and on Fridays. Against the trend, occasionally grey seals will show up almost for the last winter bees and butterflies on their flowers. anywhere. They are commonly seen in rivers and, after storms, sometimes even in ponds. Seals have historically always been hunted in the UK, thankfully something that officially stopped after the passing of the Conservation of Seals Act in 1970. Seals have never made themselves popular to fishermen, especially since they have a taste for salmon and are smart enough to take advantage of the free food a fisherman’s full net provides. In fact, plans to build a seal sanctuary on the Isle of Islay in 1999 were scrapped because of pressure from salmon fishermen. Shetlands families have always maintained that “seal folk” exist. Seals in the water, “selkies”, can take off their skin and become a human on land, and have to put the skin back on again to become a seal. If they lose their skins, they can never return to the sea. And there were many people who claimed to be the descendents of selkies.

DS1ST Pair hit by gold swindle Two elderly people were conned out of a total of £450,000 in life savings in a gold bullion scam. They were called by fraudsters claiming to be from the police and told their bank accounts had been compromised. The scammers then ordered the pair to buy gold bullion. They said it would be collected by a “police courier” for safe keeping. North Yorkshire Police said a 26-year-old man had been arrested as he tried to sell one of the gold bars to a pawnbroker in London. He has now been charged with fraud and money laundering. Anglers in shark ‘shock’ A FISHERMAN has told of his shock as a shark at least 10ft long circled his boat. Andrew Grabham, 67, son John, 34, and two others were landing cod in the North Sea off Hartlepool, Co Durham, when the beast appeared. Andrew said: “My friend saw it first. He said: ‘Oh there’s a shark over there’ and I thought: ‘Blimey’. “You could see the fins out of the water. I just got a bit of a shock. “We got closer to it so we could have a good look. It was going quite slowly.” According to the Shark Trust, at least 21 species live in British waters all year round. Tattoos rapist is caged A rapist with “forgive and forget” face tattoos who punched and throttled one of his victims has been locked up. Ashley Lloyd, 29, put his hand over the woman’s mouth to stop her screams as he sexually attacked her.

Lloyd, of Ackworth, West Yorks, switched his plea to guilty at his Leeds Crown Court trial and was jailed for 10 years and six months. Det Con Nicola Dovey, of West Yorkshire Police, said: “Lloyd is a very dangerous man and I am pleased that the court has recognised his predatory behaviour.” DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 25 I WENT BANANAS AT KILLER SPIDER hit and mist ★red deer stags practise their rutting skills on a misty suburban morning.

When Joe Stein, 37, opened the bag he discovered a 2in “dark mass” hanging from the fruit. Terrified, he threw it in a bin outside. He later retrieved it, Googled the hairy specimen – and discovered it appeared to be a Brazilian wandering spider. The Guinness Book of World Records has named it the most venomous spider in the world for wielding the most active nerve-and-brain damaging venom. Joe, from Beckenham, Kent, said: “I opened the bag, everything fine, turned the bananas over and all I saw was this huge dark mass hanging on to the bananas. “I sort of had to refocus my eyes so I could see his big bony, hairy legs. “Obviously I was shocked, my girlfriend was a bit shocked. “Luckily, I think it was dead, but it was enough to make us both jump. “I want to make people aware and to be careful.” Joe bought the bunch of Columbian bananas from the Sainsbury’s store in West Wickham, south-east London, on Monday. A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said: “We are in touch with the customer to apologise for their experience. “Incidents like this are extremely rare and we have processes in place to prevent them.” news@dailystar.co.uk

26 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 DS1ST LADY GAGA IN NEW MOVIE PLAYS BITTER WIFE OF Black Gucci ■MURDER: Driver and Gaga as the doomed couple, and, left, Patrizia following her arrest in 1997 ■■ by NADINE LINGE SHE was dubbed the “Black Widow” – the luxury-loving wife who arranged for her fashion heir husband to be bumped off after he left her for another woman. Now Lady Gaga is playing Patrizia Reggiani in new film House Of Gucci, which had its London premiere this week. Gaga spent 18 months in character bringing Patrizia to life and the movie is packed with glitz and Seventies glamour. The Gucci dynasty began in 1921 when Guccio Gucci opened a leather goods shop in Florence, inspired by his time working at the Savoy hotel. Global It was his sons Aldo and Rodolfo who turned it into a global brand loved by the rich and famous but behind that famous intertwined G logo, the family was at war. In 1972, Roldolfo’s son Maurizio, played by Star Wars actor Adam Driver, married against his father’s wishes. His bride Patrizia was an Italian socialite and Elizabeth Taylor lookalike but Roldolfo – portrayed by Jeremy Irons – dismissed her as “a social climber who has nothing in mind but money”. When the pair started dating, she was so unimpressed with Maurizio’s car, she demanded he buy her a Ferrari. And she once confessed in an interview: “I’d rather weep in a Rolls-Royce than be happy on a bicycle.” The couple shared a jet-set lifestyle and had two daughters, Allegra and Alessandr before Maurizio’s poor business dea ings lost the Gucci empire millions the 1980s. At the same time, their marria was falling apart. In 1985, Mauriz told Patrizia he was going on a sho business trip to Florence. The following day, he sent a frien to tell his wife he would not be retur ing and the marriage was over. He started dating former mod Paola Franchi and asked Patrizia for divorce in 1991. She was furious, telling anyon who would listen that she wante Maurizio dead, even asking her the lawyer: “What would happen if I g rid of him?” Maurizio was then murdered in

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 27 FASHION GURU WHOSE EXECUTION SHE ORDERED Widow and her assassination ■MUGSHOT: Patrizia’s police photo; inset, an earlier snap of her; right, scene from film ■ ROMANCE: Driver and Gaga, and, right, Maurizio and Patrizia in happy times a, l- in ge io rt d n- el a e d n ot a crime which shocked Italy. At 8.30am on March 27, 1995, as he entered his office in Milan, he was shot three times in the back by a waiting gunman. As he collapsed on the floor, a final killer bullet was pumped into the 46-yearold’s head. As it later emerged, the hitman had been hired by Maurizio’s ex – it was said she feared he would marry new lover Paola, and threaten her and her daughters’ status. Without evidence, the crime went unsolved for nearly two years. A tipoff led to Patrizia’s arrest LOVE RIVAL: Paola, now 67 in 1997, along with four others, including the hitman. Her Cartier diary was found to be marked with the date of Maurizio’s murder and the word “Paradise”. After Patrizia was arrested, wearing a fur coat and dripping in jewels, she was dubbed “La Vedova Nera,” the Black Widow. She was found guilty of ordering Maurizio’s murder and paying 600million lire, around £265,000. Sentenced to 29 years in jail, Patrizia passed her time reading, sleeping and exercising a pet ferret called Bambi. Her lawyer had negotiated the privilege but the creature died when an inmate sat on it. With credit for good behaviour, she served 18 years and was released in 2016. Afterwards she was asked why she hadn’t killed her ex-husband herself. “My eyesight is not so good,” she replied. “I didn’t want to miss.” Patrizia is now 72, estranged from her daughters and living in Milan with a pet parrot. She has criticised Lady Gaga for not meeting her but it seems the star will carry Patrizia with her. “I don’t know that I’d ever let her go,” says Gaga. “I feel her inside of me all the time.” ● House Of Gucci is released on November 26.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T F E A T U R E The world’s first gold one-eighth sovereign in tribute to all those who served Britain during the Second World War. On Remembrance Day each year we pay respect to those who have fought to defend this country. Each passing year becomes more significant as the number of men and women who saw service in the Second World War on land, at sea and in the air and who are still with us become ever fewer. Sadly, most are no longer with us. Now, a new gold one-eighth sovereign coin has been struck, the first of its kind ever to celebrate the everyday ranks of our armed forces that fought in the Second World War. A TRIBUTE TO ALL WHO SERVED IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR Coins commemorating the Second World War have, in the past, often focused on the heroic deeds of an individual, such as the recipient of a Victoria Cross. However, the defence of this nation was made possible by the millions of service men and women, many of them of ordinary rank, each of whom played their part with courage and resolve. Just about every family includes someone who NEW COIN’S DESIGN IS INSPIRED BY THE 1939-45 WAR MEDAL The 1939-45 War Medal was awarded to all who served in the Second World War. Featuring its distinctive ribbon with red, blue and white stripes, many people remember with pride a member of their family receiving this medal. The design of this medal has inspired that of the new gold one-eighth sovereign. ‘did their bit’ for the nation. However, their stories of the war years will soon be lost to time. So, how do we ensure these experiences are anchored for the younger generations, for whom the Second World War is now in distant history? A permanent reminder of the courage and endurance of this wartime generation has now been made in solid 22 carat gold. DESIGN BASED ON THE MEDAL AWARDED TO ALL WHO SERVED The design is inspired by the 1939- 45 War Medal (shown below) which was awarded to all who fought in the Second World War. The motif of a lion trampling an eagle is simple and yet clear. It is the first time this motif has appeared on a gold sovereign coin, giving it collector-appeal.

32 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 JUST JANE JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY ... AND EVERY DAY DS1ST £5,000 went on nothing When I was asked to contribute £5,000 towards my son’s wedding fund, I was told that my money was for drinks and the evening buffet. Well, it turned out to be a pay bar and the evening buffet consisted of a few sausage rolls and curly sandwiches. It felt like a rip-off, so I wrote him a friendly letter suggesting he ask the hotel for a refund or an explanation. I wasn’t being nasty. I simply couldn’t work out where my cash had gone. Now he’s refusing to talk to me. His sister says he’s angry because I “always have to spoil everything” but surely, I’m allowed to raise a valid point? JANE SAYS: I suspect your £5,000 went into the general mix and was used for all sorts of expenses throughout your son and new daughter-in-law’s wedding day. The chances are he was as disappointed as you were with the evening spread and is now angry with hotel. Maybe he feels you are “rubbing salt into the wound” by pointing out the obvious. Make it clear that you meant no harm. Suggest a face-toface catch up in order to clear the air and remember that he’s probably feeling embarrassed. is still there. He swears they’re “just good mates” but do “good mates” kiss on the lips when they meet or huddle, whispering in corners? When I ask him how long she’ll (potentially) be with us for, he’s vague and mutters that there’s no rush.

COULD it be that neither Tom nor Scott is right for you? Tom is safe but boring and not the man you crave, although he’s tried to make an effort, it’s not enough for you to commit to him for ever and if you tried it would all end in tears. While Scott is mad, bad and dangerous to know, he’s clearly not the settling-down type. You’ve experienced love at both ends of the scale so why not look for someone nearer the middle of the spectrum? It’s not impossible to find a guy who is great in bed, with a bit of edge to him who is also considerate and kind. What you’re doing isn’t fair on Tom and it’s leaving you confused. I suggest you free yourself from both these inappropriate men and start again. Terms & conditions: Calls cost £1.54 per minute from landlines. Calls from mobiles will be higher.

And, if you get the slightest hint he is messing around behind your back, then he can clear off and find somewhere for the pair of them. If they have unfinished business then that’s for them to work out but you refuse to be intimated, embarrassed, or shoved out in the cold – physically or emotionally. Sickened by selfish sister I’m furious with my sister who recently came to my birthday party with a filthy cold and made us all ill. She suffers from the worst form of fomo (fear of missing out) that I have ever encountered. We can’t do anything without her expecting to be included – and if she’s not, she sulks. Arrggh! JANE SAYS: Your sister needs to hear that there will always be another meal or party. She doesn’t have to do everything, every time. Giving the family her rotten cold was inconsiderate and childish. Live your life on your terms and don’t ever feel guilty for having separate friends. You’re not joined at the hip.

34 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 DS1ST RAVEL Time travel by VICKY LISSAMAN La Plagne celebrates 60 years of fun on the slopes Charismatic local doctor Pierre Borrione is considered to be the grand creator of La Plagne, one of the world’s biggest ski resorts, located in the Tarentaise Valley in the heart of the French Alps. As the younger generation were finding it more difficult to make a living from traditional farming, his goal was to save the communes in the valley from depopulation by creating more than 500 jobs in a ski resort. Construction began on the new resort village of La Plagne in the spring of 1961, but operations stalled when the initial developer went bankrupt. The project was taken over by Robert Legoux and architect Michel Bezançon was brought in, who designed the resort from scratch with all the facilities at the bottom of the slopes, above the forest in the mountain pastures. Plagne Centre, the first of the resort’s sites, opened in December that year, with two drag lifts and four ski runs. Benefitting from government aid in 1964, Plagne Centre developed rapidly and was joined by the sites of Plagne Bellecôte, Plagne Aime 2000 and Plagne Villages in the late 1960s and early 70s. In 1969, Champagny en Vanoise opted to become part of La Plagne, with a site on the south-facing side of the mountain with an unobstructed view of the Vanoise Massif. Between 1970 and 1974, Bellentre with Montchavin and Longefoy with Plagne Montalbert were created. Les Coches came along in 1981, as did Belle Plagne. Plagne 1800 opened in 1982. Plagne Soleil was the last site, opening in 1990. In 1992, during the Albertville Winter Olympics, La Plagne hosted the bobsleigh and luge events. In 2008, Bezançon’s “snow ocean liner” building of Aime 2000 was awarded the 20th Century Heritage label for its modern architecture. Just in time for its 60th anniversary, La Plagne is welcoming its first five-star residence, the luxury White Pearl Lodge & Spa in Plagne Soleil. The ski-in, ski-out accommodation has a heated indoor/ outdoor pool, spa, fitness room and a ski shop. A week costs from £914 for four sharing an apartment. en.la-plagne.com Brits’ bookings to the Caribbean winter sunshine are surging say Skyscanner. Holiday searches for the Dominican Republic are up 181% week on week, with Barbados rising 37% and Antigua 35%. Flight searches from Manchester to Bridgetown, Barbados, soared 75%. skyscanner.net ICE WORK Izzy gets ready to climb Canada’s frozen parks leave Isobel Dickinson with a warm glow inside When my tour guide asked if I fancied some bubbles in the heart of the Canadian Rockies I was naturally keen. But unbeknown to me, he wasn’t talking about the ones that come in a flute. I was standing, tentatively, on top of the frozen Abraham Lake, in Clearwater County, Alberta. And the bubbles he was referring to were the strings of pearl-like ones cocooned in the ice under my feet. Although beautiful, this amazing natural phenomenon is caused by decomposing dead plants and animals from the murky depths. It produces a slow and steady fizz of methane gas which freezes when the temperature dips to -20C in winter, trapping it in an icy chamber until the ice thaws again. During the summer this artificial lake is piercingly turquoise and people come here to hike and fish. But in winter, folk flock from around the world to see the incredible sight on the North Saskatchewan River. I’m in David Thompson Country – a rugged area between Alberta’s more touristy Banff and Jasper National Parks, known for its wild beauty and named after one of the country’s greatest explorerers. Just down the road we stop for snow-shoeing at the Cline River Canyon. The snow crunches like Styrofoam under my feet, which appear to have tennis rackets strapped to them, as we make our way through thousands of pine trees. When we reach the bottom, Ice cold with a twist challenge Heading up a frozen waterfall ‘‘ As close to Narnia as I think I’ll ever get. I keep expecting to see Aslan FAIRYTALE The icy landscape is breathtaking frozen waterfalls drape the jagged rock walls around us. I tell our tour guide, JP from Pursuit Adventures, that this ravine is as close to Narnia as I think I’ll ever get. It’s so enchanting, I keep expecting Aslan the lion to pop out and say a quick hello. I’m here for five days travelling from Jasper to Banff via the Icefields Parkway, which is officially called Highway 93. This super-scenic road stretching 144 miles is a regular on lists of the world’s most beautiful road trips. Gazing at endless snow-dusted mountains and mirrored lakes, craggy glaciers and soaring pines I can see why. The three-and-a-halfhour drive through the backbone of SLOPING OFF Endless opportunities for skiing ON A HIGH Cable car soars above Banff scenery the Rockies is breathtaking, bucket-list stuff. We had started our journey in Jasper, a charming town with just a few thousand residents and a lot of moose. Jasper is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies – 4,250 square miles of untamed wilderness. The town stands in the shadows of the 12,972 ft Mount Robson, the highest peak in the range spanning British Columbia and Alberta. It’s also rumoured to be where Megan and Harry honeymooned in 2018. A relaxing yoga session at the Jasper Wellness Centre limbered us up nicely for the next morning. At -16C, most people would be hibernating, but in Alberta they venture into the great outdoors to make the most of winter. So, wrapped in as many layers as I could

This is the deepest canyon in the Rockies, and if climbing up a waterfall sounds hard, first we have to get to it. For that we need crampons, terrifying-looking devices covered in steel pins that slip over your walking shoes for traction. And I thought walking in heels was hard. They take some getting used to, but thankfully the rest of the group is too distracted by the fantastically fresh air and stunning scenery to notice my Bambi-on-spikes-on-ice impression. Maligne Canyon is a Mecca for ice climbers and luckily the team at Rockaboo Mountain Adventures show us how it’s done. It’s hard work and nerve-racking, but the LUXURY Four-star Chateau Fairmont perfect tonic was soaking our aching limbs in the hot tub at the Mount Robson Inn afterwards, and looking up at the illuminated night sky. Jasper isn’t just a natural beauty during the day, it’s also a Dark Sky Preserve, the second largest in the world, making it ideal for stargazing. ‘‘ Jasper isn’t just a natural beauty in the day, it’s also a Dark Sky Preserve After a whirlwind of activity, I’m ready for some relaxation at our next stop – the four-star Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, a three-hour drive away in Banff National Park. It’s a classic picture postcard, a frozen lake back-dropped by the chateau-style hotel and the Victoria Glacier. From my bedroom window I watch tiny figures glide on skates, while across the lake I can hear the clash of hockey sticks. I decide I’ve earned my ice in a glass so head to the outdoor bar carved from more of the cold stuff for cocktails. The hotel was originally built as a base for outdoor enthusiasts and alpinists more than 100 years ago. During the summer you can hike or canoe on the enticing emerald waters and in winter it offers world-class skiing. Marilyn Monroe was a regular guest in the 1950s. It’s easy to see why, with a luxury spa and the fabulous Fairview restaurant, where we feasted on mouthwatering elk ribeye steaks. Our next and final stop was Banff town, a 45-minute drive away, home to hot springs and some of the world’s best ski runs. There are three ski resorts in the region. We picked Lake Louise’s 4,200 skiable acres, one of the largest in North America. The majestic slopes are suitable for all levels, whether you’re braving black runs or shuffling about the baby hills. Luckily, all it took was a few ‘Burt Reynolds’ – shots of spiced rum and butter schnapps – in the après bar to get me feeling like Izzy the Eagle. Banff is great to explore, with boutiques, restaurants, bars and the beautiful Bow River. At Park Distillery they make their own whisky using water from surrounding glaciers. One night we dined in the sky after taking the Banff Gondola up to the Sky Bistro at the summit of Sulphur Mountain, 7,000ft above sea level. Afterwards we sang along to live music at the Rose & Crown pub before collapsing into our beds at the delightful Mount Royal Hotel. The temperatures here might be freezing, but the beauty of the Canadian Rockies and the warmth of the people will melt your heart.

Galahad, 31, won the IBF belt back in August when he stopped Jazza Dickens. It had been his dream to win a world title since he met Hamed at a mosque in Sheffield. He was a troubled kid and asked the British great how he could follow in his footsteps. Hamed told Galahad – real name Barry Awad – to go to Brendan Ingle’s Wincobank gym. He got to train alongside WBO, WBC and IBF champion Hamed, one of the most exciting fighters to ever come from Britain.

There is also a potential bout with Nottingham’s Leigh Wood or Belfast’s Michael Conlan, who are due to meet next year. And Galahad is on a mission to collect the same belts as Hamed, who was a long-reigning WBO champion before collecting the IBF and WBC titles. “He told me I have to get the others he won now,” added Galahad. “I said, ‘Don’t worry slowly but surely I’ll get them’. ” mark’s moggie a monsteR of the week with a ■ 17lb 10oz beauty.

He has beaten top-10 players Jannik Sinner and Hubert Hurkacz in the last month but failed to win three matches at the same ATP event. “It’s positive that I’ve had that kind of run of tournaments,” he said. “I had a few niggles but nothing that affected me in the matches.” langer management ■■ by DARREN WITCOOP COACH Justin Langer has backed Australia’s “fearless” mindset to overcome any hurdle ahead of tomorrow’s T20 World Cup Final against New Zealand.

Jones made the remark as he outlined the importance of the fixture to the nation of his birth, insisting that the success of their season hinges on today’s clash with England. Hooper said: “I don’t feel that way. What an occasion it’s going to be. ‘‘Understanding what the scene is going to be like is important. This will be a level up on Scotland last weekend. “We’ve got a lot of players who haven’t played up here so we need to understand that the crowd is going to be vocal and loud.

But Jenkins said: “It just so happens in the game it was highlighted – and they kept going at him.” He also knows what a threat the Pacific Islanders pose in attack, adding: “Yeah, they are unpredictable in what they do defensively and they are the same when they are attacking. “You can get a break from anywhere with their offloads. “They are so skilful in that part of the game.”

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 41 his Whizz-kid Smith can go far says skipper OWEN FARRELL insists England fans have nothing to worry about with Marcus Smith running the show against Australia. The young fly-half starts the biggest match of his life this evening when two of the world’s top-four ranked nations clash at Twickenham. A week ago Smith, 22, shredded a 14-man Tonga team already beaten and gasping for air when he came off the bench. That apart, his experience in an England shirt is restricted to summer runarounds against minnows USA and Canada. Yet England have rearranged their back line to accommodate him, leaving out George Ford, denying Farrell the No.10 shirt he loves and moving Manu Tuilagi out onto the wing. And the biggest compliment Smith can be paid is that everyone seems to agree the time is right to give him this shot. Farrell tends not to go overboard on any subject yet, on the eve of his 100th international, he could not have been more effusive in praise of his new team-mate. “Marcus is a fantastic player who’s been playing unbelievably well and has come in here and put his stamp on it,” said the England captain. “He’s running the show in terms of attack. “I’m here if he needs anything but, as far as him being himself and getting his game out there on the pitch, I don’t think that’s something people need to worry about. “I really don’t think he needs encouragement. He’s got a brilliant head on his shoulders.” England have won all seven games against Australia under Eddie Jones, most recently sticking 40 points on them at the 2019 World Cup. But they have lost two props to Covid this week and are up against opponents who have beaten world champions South Africa twice this year. Time will tell whether Smith is ■■ by ALEX SPINK ready but Farrell is not a man prone to hyperbole and clearly believes he is. He said: “Marcus loves working the game out, how to control games, get the best out of people, improve. But probably the most special thing is his ability to unlock a game on his own. “He has an ability to control a game and his team but with a sharpness to rip a game open in the blink of an eye. Obviously he’s just started but hopefully he keeps that going for the rest of his career.” Jones has taken his time with Smith, who he first saw play in a schoolboy Farrell ready for test Andy Farrell has urged Ireland’s players to embrace the “privilege” of taking on New Zealand. The All Blacks arrive at a sold-out Aviva Stadium in Dublin this afternoon having lost only two of the previous 32 meetings between the nations and on the back of scoring a world-record 675 points this calendar year. Ireland are on a sixmatch winning streak and head coach Farrell is eager for the challenge ahead. He said: “What a time to be alive, to be an Irish IRELAND v NEW ZEALAND Kick-off: 3.15pm rugby player – the opportunity to play in front of a full house against the best team in the world. “This is where you want to be. We’re coming up against a different beast, we know that. “It’s the challenge that we get excited about. “Like it always has been, it’s a privilege, we’re unbelievably fortunate.” MARC ■LEADING MEN: Coach Eddie Jones with Farrell match in Brighton days before his Japan side caused the biggest shock in World Cup history by beating South Africa in 2015. Less than a year later Jones was in charge of England, took them back to the south coast for a camp and invited Smith to join them, fresh from an A-level exam. The 17-year old did a kicking session with Ford, after which the Leicester star tweeted: “Great to meet you Marcus, hell of a talent, keep working hard mate!” Five years on, Ford is on the outside looking in. Great Scott talk of Town Gregor Townsend has praised Matt Scott for fighting his way back into contention for Scotland. The Leicester centre (inset) will earn his first cap in four-and-a-half years against South Africa at Murrayfield today. He is one of four changes to the starting XV from last weekend’s win over Australia, with Rufus McLean, Nick Haining and Stuart McInally also added to the team. “There were areas of his game we needed to see ENGLAND v AUSTRALIA ENGLAND: Steward; Tuilagi, Slade, Farrell (capt) May; Smith, Youngs; Rodd, George, Sinckler, Itoje, Hill, Lawes, Underhill, Curry.

Itoje, 27, will lead England out at Twickenham on the day when he will win his 50th cap. He does so with England again plunged into pre-match turmoil by a positive Covid result. Ellis Genge has followed Joe Marler in contracting coronavirus – leaving Eddie Jones to hand a debut to youngster Bevan Rodd. Itoje said: “England v Australia across any sport – even drinking beer – is always fairly intense. The fans let you know about it. “I might not be in the 23 for the beer drinking squad but I’d back our boys. We’re ready to go.” England are odds-on favourites to make it eight wins out of eight in the fixture under head coach Jones. They give a debut to 21-year-old Rodd at prop and have young fly-half Marcus Smith calling the shots for the first time from the off. “We need to have our heads screwed on because Australia are a country who keep on coming at you,” added Itoje. “If we look at past games thinking we’ll win this game then we will be in trouble. The team that dwells on those most will suffer.” ■STRETCHING IT: Itoje and Jamie George yesterday well. Where he is in relation to the last time he played for us, there’s much more competition at centre. “Even though he’s playing his best rugby, he’s now competing against other very good centres. “His big strengths are his carrying, his work-rate and defensively he’s really improved over the last 12 months. “Those three elements are going to be massive this weekend.” SHORTS Panther hell over ■ UFC ‘The Panther’ is finally back on the prowl at UFC Vegas 42 tonight.

The Doctor (right), regarded as the most successful motorcycle racer ever, will call time on his racing career after tomorrow’s race in Spain, to concentrate on becoming a father and running his own team. But as he lines up for his 432nd Grand Prix, the man who has won nine world championships said: “I fought a lot to try to win the 10th championship when I was able to race at a good level. “I always thought I would be very happy if I can win another title. “I thought it was important and number 10 is like a ■■ by zoe burn finish, a close to the circle. But I have had a great career. “My last podium at Jerez in 2020 was my 199th and I wanted to try for 200 but it’s okay. I can’t complain because it’s been a long, long career and a great pleasure.” Rossi, 42, made his World Championship debut on an Aprilia 125cc in 1996. The Italian took the title the following year before moving up to the 250cc class in 1998 and winning that in 1999. In 2000 he moved into the premier class and won the first of five titles in a row, the first two with Honda in 2001 and 2002. His move to Yamaha brought five titles between 2003 and 2009. A high-profile move to Ducati in 2010 ended his dominance and he returned to Yamaha three years later. But, despite taking another 10 race wins, he missed out on that elusive 10th title. Australian Jack Miller ended the last Friday of the 2021 MotoGP season on top as just 0.068secs separated the leading three riders at Valencia. Miller clocked a best lap of 1min 30.927secs to beat Pol Espargaro, with newly-crowned World Champion Fabio Quartararo down in 11th after a crash. BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIX lewis just braziliant Hamilton sprints to the front Lewis Hamilton kept his world title hopes alive by qualifying first for today’s sprint race at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Hamilton will be dropped back five places for tomorrow’s main event after Mercedes changed his engine for the fifth time this season. But with the new power unit, and sporting a helmet in his hero Ayrton Senna’s colours, Hamilton sent out a message to championship leader Max Verstappen by taking top spot in qualifying, finishing almost half a second clear of his Red Bull rival. Hamilton said: “I am so happy to be back here in Brazil. “One of the guys that works here said I should use the Senna colours more often because that is my first pole in a long time. It has been such a while, it feels like the first. “Today was a really good session and I am super-happy. We have got the penalty on Sunday, but I will give it all I have got. I will do my best to get through the field.” Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas will line up third ahead of Sergio Perez in the other Red Bull for the sprint race. ■■ by SIMON CASS Hamilton, 19 points behind Verstappen with four rounds to go, has never won the championship when trailing at this stage. His second grid penalty, a month after he was demoted 10 places at the Turkish GP for his fourth engine change, is unlikely to have enhanced his mood. However, at a grey and windy Interlagos – scene of his maiden title triumph 13 years ago – his emphatic performance will provide him with hope of a historic eighth world title. Hamilton’s team believe taking the engine punishment now will at least allow their driver to compete for points in Saturday’s 24-lap dash. The winner is awarded three points, the runner-up two and third place one point. The result also determines the grid for the grand prix on Sunday. But even if Hamilton wins the shortened race, he will start the 19th round of this record-breaking 22-round season no higher than sixth. Should Verstappen take second, he will be promoted to pole, putting him in the driving seat to extend his championship lead. ■ HEADY DAYS: Hamilton salutes grabbing pole for the sprint race ahead of Verstappen (left) and (below) his tribute helmet to Senna F1 championship Drivers 1 M Verstappen (R Bull) 312.5 2 L Hamilton (Merc) 293.5 3 V Bottas (Merc) 185 4 S Perez (R Bull) 165 5 L Norris (McLaren) 150 6 C Leclerc (Ferrari) 138 7 C Sainz Jr (Ferrari) 130.5 8 D Ricciardo (McLaren) 105 9 P Gasly (AlphaTauri) 86 10 F Alonso (Alpine) 60 CONSTRUCTORS 1 Mercedes 478.5 2 Red Bull 477.5 3 Ferrari 268.5 4 McLaren 255 5 Alpine 106 6 AlphaTauri 106 7 Aston Martin 68 8 Williams 23 9 Alfa Romeo 11 10 Haas 0

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 43 PAUL MERSON Villa a hop to Kop job for Gerrard Reds role awaits if steve’s a success ASTON VILLA is a stepping stone to Liverpool for Steven Gerrard. And if things go his way he could even be at Anfield this time next year. Stranger things have happened. Gerrard will be Liverpool manager one day. He is on the right path. I’m sure that’s his aim. He will have a plan. This is part of the journey. Sitting here today you would think he’s got no chance of being Liverpool manager next season. But things change quickly in football. If you’d said to me this time last year that Dean Smith would be out of a job I’d have said no chance. It’s all about timing. If Liverpool start next season badly or Jurgen Klopp wakes up one morning and decides to walk away, who else are they going to go for? If Gerrard does well at Villa in the Premier League then surely he is the first one Liverpool would turn to. This is a much tougher job than Rangers because there is so much competition. And it’s a nightmare start because the players are away on international duty. He has a hard first game too in Brighton. They are a good team but the fans will expect to beat them at Villa Park so there’s a bit of pressure on his debut. The thing is, Villa surely don’t think they are getting into the top six this season. If Arsenal and Tottenham are struggling why should Villa think they can walk right in there? So all he really has to do is steady the ship, get them safe, and if they finish mid-table he’s had a result in my opinion. They’re not going down. They wouldn’t have gone down under Smith either. So it’s not that hard of a job really. I was surprised they sacked Smith. I thought he’d have enough brownie points in the bag. He kept them in the Premier League last season. He’s bang unlucky. They’ve just been on a bad run at a bad time. But I’m sure he would have turned it around. It looks to me like he’s paid for bringing in the players he did. Danny Ings hasn’t really worked out. Neither has Leon Bailey. Nobody has filled Jack Grealish’s boots. But it’s not easy selling a £100m player, buying a load of replacements and getting them to gel from the off. Smith will be back in the game before long I’m sure. He’s too good a manager. There are other Premier League clubs who would be lucky to have him – like Norwich for example. Villa did it now because they knew Gerrard might be available too. Leave it a couple of weeks and they could have turned things around and then it becomes difficult. Villa really ■ DISASTER DEALINGS: Ings and Bailey both failed Dean Smith INTERVIEW ■■ by paul brown wanted Gerrard. He’s done an unbelievable job at Rangers but he’s going to an unbelievable club at Villa. This is a big, big football club. If you’re Gerrard you have to take a job like that in the Premier League when it comes up. No disrespect to Rangers. They’re as big as many Premier League teams. But how much further can Gerrard take them? They’re not winning the Europa League. They’re not winning that for the next 10 years. They just don’t have the TV money to compete in European competitions. Gerrard can’t lose really. Villa are not in serious danger. They’re just on a bad run. Steady the ship and you’ve done your job for the season. ■RED DREAD: Klopp leaving would be a big blow to Liverpool ■GER THE MAN: Former Anfield great could one day manage his club OUR TOP COLUMNIST SHOOTS FROM THE LIP HOWE has to home in fast EDDIE HOWE has three games to save Newcastle. They’ve got Brentford, Norwich and Burnley in their next three home games and he needs seven points from those at least, or they’re in massive trouble. Arsenal play them as well at the Emirates but that’s almost a free swing because no-one will expect them to win there. It’s a nice start for him really – but after that it gets messy. There’s Leicester and Liverpool away, followed by both Manchester clubs at home. If you go into that and you’re still in the bottom three, it could be curtains. Eddie (above) has had a few months off so he will bring energy and positivity. Steve Bruce had to get them in the top half. Eddie just has to keep them up. But it feels like he’s up against it because the fans seem underwhelmed. I didn’t see hundreds turning up to welcome him. conor snub is lions’ loss CONOR Gallagher should be in the England squad and it’s shocked me that Gareth Southgate has snubbed him. He’s been one of the best players in the country this season for Crystal Palace. I don’t think Gallagher (inset) could have done any more to earn a call-up. If he hasn’t got one now I don’t know how he will. He affects matches every time he plays and is on top of his game. I don’t think you should pick players who aren’t really playing for their clubs, so I’m a bit surprised at his treatment of Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho as well. The winger got picked last time almost to help his confidence when he wasn’t doing well. Now he’s out again. It’s strange.

44 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 Dortmund circling as ziyech wants out CHELSEA winger Hakim Ziyech wants to leave the club in search of regular first-team football. Ziyech was signed from Ajax for £40m 18 months ago but has started just two Premier League games this season. The Moroccan (inset) has already helped Chelsea to become Champions League and Super Cup winners. But he has suffered in the ferocious fight for places at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel with Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic. Borussia Dortmund are among the clubs aware that he is open to a loan move abroad in January ahead of what could be a permanent exit. Ziyech, 28, believes he should be playing regularly for a club in the Champions League. A switch to Dortmund ■■ by darren lewis would see him providing the ammunition for marksman Erling Haaland, a player hugely admired by Chelsea. Their boss Marco Rose and the German club’s transfer consultant Matthias Sammer are understood to be ready to make their move in January. Dortmund are keen on Ziyech’s team-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi, but the 21-year-old academy product is highly regarded by the Blues and it’s thought he would only leave for a sizeable fee. Chelsea’s chief negotiator, Marina Granovskaia, has established a reputation for recouping huge sums of money for players that the club will to sell.

The EFL have already taken 12 points off the Championship basement outfit for going into administration in September. Business advisory firm Quantuma, who are currently running the club, had appealed against the penalty but that has been adjourned and is expected to be dropped. The Rams are now set to accept the nine-point deduction for other FFP ■■ by JAMES NURSEY breaches under outgoing owner Mel Morris (inset). The protracted row relates to the way Derby cut the values of their players over the length of their contracts, which upset rival clubs. Rooney’s side will be on minus three if the deduction is activated, 18 points from safety. They will almost certainly drop into League One after only staying up on the final day last term but administrators hope the club will be a much more attractive proposition for a takeover without the constant threat of action from the EFL. American businessman Chris Kirchner is keen on buying Derby and has attended two recent games at Pride Park. Morris filed for insolvency after blaming £20m in lost revenue due to Covid and Derby missing out on promotion in 2019. They also have a suspended three-point penalty hanging over them if they are late paying wages again.

The former Manchester City striker, 33, has been told to rest for three months after suffering chest pains playing for Barcelona on October 30. Barca said at the time his health and treatment would be monitored throughout that rest period “in order to determine his recovery process”. Now reports in Spain have claimed that the condition is more serious than initially thought which could force the Argentinian to quit. Aguero said: “Given the rumours, I say of them that I am following the indications of the club’s doctors, doing tests and treatment and seeing my progress within 90 days. Always positive.” He was making just his second start for Barca when the issue arose at home to Alaves. He fell ill on the field and was treated for several minutes before being taken to hospital. Aguero has made just five appearances for the club, scoring once.

He was watched by West Ham manager David Moyes and Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder this week.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 47 stars find three-dom Maguire, Kane and Sterling given a new lease of life with country retreat NOT that long ago the prospect of joining up with England would fill some players with dread. The greatest honour in the game felt like such a chore, some stars would find an excuse to pull out of squads. Mysterious injuries became the norm – the stuff of fictional legend. Even current boss Gareth Southgate admits that when he first took charge in 2016 he struggled to persuade some individuals to be part of the Three Lions ranks. More fool them – because how times have changed. Team England has gone from resembling a madhouse people wanted to avoid to a rehabilitation centre housing some of the most famous and expensive patients in the world. Three names spring to mind when it comes to seeing them seek salvation with England. Instead of running a mile, it’s safe to assume Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Harry Maguire would have walked over broken glass to be involved in this latest international camp. Kane has performed like a drain for Tottenham this season and the same goes for Maguire at Manchester United. As for Sterling, has hasn’t even been given a proper chance to emulate those two, having spent most of this campaign sitting on the sidelines. The trio have been calamitous at club level, but stick them in an England shirt and all of them become lions again. Sterling has started just six games for Pep Guardiola in all competitions but Gareth Southgate wouldn’t dream of ignoring someone who remains one of the first names on his teamsheet. It took him just a matter of minutes to terrorise the Albanian defence with a blistering run. He was an absolute menace all night, while Kane’s first touch of the game was a sublime flick into the path of Jordan Henderson. As for Maguire, he looked like an imposter in comparison to the one that’s been on show for United in recent weeks. Maguire has been so bad for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side that some United supporters have called for him to be stripped of the captain’s armband. But JEREMY CROSS CHIEF SPORTS WRITER last night Maguire was back to his commanding best. Rock solid and unflappable at the back while putting England ahead with a towering header. Kane then joined in the fun with a hattrick, meaning he has now scored six times as many international goals this season (six) than he has Premier League ones. The ironic truth is that on current ■SLAB HEAD: Maguire nods home the opener club form, all of them shouldn’t have even been starting against Albania. But Southgate deserves huge credit for ignoring all the noise and seeing the bigger picture, by keeping faith with three players who rarely let their country down. Southgate isn’t in the habit of helping out club managers because he has to be selfish, being in one of the biggest jobs of the lot. But, who knows, his ability to provide an environment that acts like a sanctuary for the likes of Kane, Sterling and Maguire might just have done a huge favour to Antonio Conte, Guardiola and Solskjaer in the lon g run. ■BLUES CRUISE: Sterling speeds away from challenge INFORMATION STATION FIFA World Cup European Qualifying Group C Italy (1)................ 1 Switzerland (1).1 Di Lorenzo 36 Widmer 11 N Ireland (1)........ 1 Lithuania (0)....... 0 Satkus 17 (og) P W D L F A Pts Italy........................... 7 4 3 0 13 2 15 Switzerland................ 7 4 3 0 11 2 15 N Ireland.................... 7 2 2 3 6 7 8 Bulgaria..................... 7 2 2 3 6 10 8 Lithuania.................... 8 1 0 7 4 19 3 Group F Austria (0)............ 4 Israel (1)............ 2 Arnautovic 51 (pen) Bitton 32 Schaub 62, 72 D Peretz 58 Sabitzer 84 Denmark (1)......... 3 Faeroe Isles (0).. 1 Skov Olsen 18 Olsen 89 Bruun Larsen 63 Maehle 90 Moldova (0)......... 0 Scotland (1)....... 2 Patterson 38 Adams 65 Group I Andorra (1).......... 1 Poland (3)........... 4 Cervos 45 Lewandowski 5, 73 Jozwiak 11, Milik 45 England (5).......... 5 Albania (0).......... 0 Maguire 9 Kane 18, 33, 45 Henderson 28 Hungary (2).......... 4 San Marino (0)... 0 Szoboszlai 6, 83 Gazdag 22, Vecsei 88 Sky Bet League One Bolton (0)............ 2 Crewe (0)............ 0 Sheehan 50 (pen) Att: 13,804 Bakayoko 54 P W D L F A Pts Wigan...................... 16 11 1 4 30 13 34 Plymouth.................. 16 9 6 1 28 14 33 Rotherham............... 16 9 4 3 29 12 31 Wycombe................. 16 9 4 3 26 20 31 Sunderland............... 15 9 1 5 25 21 28 Oxford Utd............... 15 8 3 4 26 17 27 MK Dons.................. 15 7 4 4 27 21 25 Sheff Wed................ 16 6 7 3 20 15 25 Ipswich.................... 16 6 5 5 34 25 23 Bolton...................... 17 6 4 7 24 26 22 Cambridge............... 16 5 7 4 22 24 22 Burton Albion........... 16 6 4 6 16 21 22 Accrington............... 15 6 3 6 19 25 21 Lincoln City.............. 16 5 5 6 20 20 20 Portsmouth.............. 16 5 5 6 19 21 20 Cheltenham.............. 16 5 5 6 20 27 20 AFC Wimbledon........ 15 4 5 6 20 24 17 Charlton................... 16 4 4 8 21 24 16 Gillingham................ 16 3 7 6 15 21 16 Morecambe.............. 16 4 3 9 25 30 15 Shrewsbury.............. 16 4 3 9 15 22 15 Fleetwood................ 15 3 5 7 26 27 14 Doncaster................ 16 3 3 10 11 29 12 Crewe...................... 17 1 6 10 12 31 9 Sky Bet League Two Hartlepool (0).... 1 Newport (1)........ 2 Ferguson 63 Baker-Richardson 32 Att: 5,764 Telford 90 P W D L F A Pts Forest Green............ 15 9 4 2 27 13 31 Port Vale.................. 15 8 4 3 27 15 28 Northampton............ 15 8 3 4 20 11 27 Exeter...................... 15 6 8 1 25 15 26 Newport Cty............. 16 7 5 4 27 19 26 Swindon................... 15 7 5 3 22 15 26 Leyton Orient........... 15 5 8 2 25 12 23 Harrogate Tn............ 15 6 5 4 27 20 23 Sutton Utd............... 15 7 2 6 23 18 23 Hartlepool................ 16 7 2 7 18 22 23 Tranmere................. 15 6 4 5 11 10 22 Bradford.................. 15 5 6 4 21 18 21 Rochdale.................. 15 5 5 5 19 19 20 Walsall..................... 15 5 5 5 19 19 20 Barrow..................... 15 4 6 5 20 20 18 Bristol Rovers........... 15 5 3 7 17 23 18 Colchester................ 15 4 5 6 12 19 17 Crawley Town........... 15 5 2 8 17 25 17 Salford City.............. 15 4 4 7 16 17 16 Mansfield................. 15 3 5 7 14 20 14 Stevenage................ 15 3 5 7 11 26 14 Oldham.................... 15 3 3 9 11 22 12 Carlisle.................... 15 2 6 7 11 24 12 Scunthorpe.............. 15 2 5 8 11 29 11 cinch Scottish League Two Edinburgh C (2)... 3 Stranraer (0)..... 1 Robertson 22, 40 Yates 53 Hilton 90 Golf AVIV Dubai Championship (Jumeirah Golf Estates, UAE)—2nd Rnd (Gbr & Irl unless stated, Par 72): 129 A Rozner (Fra) 65 64, 130 J B.

The Spurs star, enduring one of the worst ALBANIA 0 barren spells of his career, made his critics eat their words last night. Kane was simply sensational, bagging a other heroes too, including fellow goalscorers scintillating hat-trick by half-time to pass Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 13, 2021 49 ■HATTABOY: Kane completes his hat-trick with a right-foot volley Hooray Harry From Back Page campaign away to San Marino on Monday night. England need only a point but the minnows will be there for the taking against an England side boosted by this rampant display. Kane netted the perfect hat-trick in the first half – header, left foot, right foot – as he overtook Wayne Rooney as England’s record goalscorer in competitive games. Kane said: “It was an incredible performance really. Obviously the pressure was on, we needed to get this result today. “Whenever you put on an England shirt you want to do everyone proud, your family, the fans. “Maybe we had a little point to prove after the last camp, we didn’t perform to the standard we know we can. “Everyone was ready for this one, we came out on fire and got the three points. “Whenever I get chances I feel like I’m going to score – we had a few shots and could have had six on another night. “I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing, working hard for the team.” a scorcher Red-hot Kane smashes Wayne goal record Maguire’s early goal from a brilliant Reece James free-kick got England going before Henderson presented Kane with the simplest of finishes. Phil Foden played him in and the Liverpool man, in for Declan Rice after he returned to West Ham through illness, stood up a tidy cross from the byline which Kane nodded home. Just as well he did too because in between the goals came an atrocious error from Kyle Walker who presented Myrto Uzuni with a gilt-edged chance. Uzuni was clean through on goal but Jordan Pickford stood tall and made the save. Henderson made it three soon afterwards after playing a one-two with Kane to slot home himself. And when Kane bagged a virtuoso fourth it suddenly looked like England could end up with a cricket score. This time Sterling was the provider, storming through the middle again before slipping the skipper in, and Kane’s finish made him look like a man suddenly full of confidence. He could have had another too but his volley from another pinpoint Sterling pass whistled only just wide. Poor Albania were clinging on for dear life but England showed real killer instinct by not letting up, with Kane leading the way. His third goal was the pick of the bunch, a flying volley from a corner which left the Wembley crowd gasping in awe when it was replayed in slow-mo on the big screen. After that it was a walk in the park as England took their foot off the gas and played out the second half in second gear. Albania never looked like troubling Pickford, and even though John Stones and James suffered a nasty clash of heads, both men were fine to continue. And Gareth Southgate had the luxury of clearing his bench long before it was over to give run-outs to fringe players, including a debut for Emile Smith Rowe. All in all this was the perfect way to bounce back from the disappointing, disjointed 1-1 draw here with Hungary, and the World Cup is now within touching distance. ■POINT MADE: Henderson salutes his second goal for England

But Page has declared him fit to start tonight against Belarus and probably against Belgium on Tuesday too. Page said: “It is not just myself who has made that decision. “There is a lot of dialogue going on with the medical team and Gareth himself. “He has had a great week’s training and a couple of training sessions coming into camp. “He has pushed himself and he is 100 per cent at this moment in time and more than happy to start the games. “We just have to manage the minutes accordingly after that. “We will see how he goes after the first game and take it from there.” Wales are guaranteed a play-off spot for Qatar 2022 after winning their Nations League but Page still hopes to clinch second place in Group E and an easier play-off tie. He said: “It is great for the supporters to know that we have a play-off. “It feels very good and takes the pressure off a little bit. “At the moment we have two games left and an opportunity to give us a more favourable tie in a play-off. “Our full aim is on that, we want to finish second and win both games. “We want to build that momentum and take it into March.” DS1ST The NO.1 pullout that scores EVERY time 100 caps an incrediBale achievement ■■ by JAMES NURSEY ■GOAL RUSH: Bale hides the ball after a treble in China in 2018 made him Wales’ record scorer GARETH BALE has faced many questions in his illustrious career. Yet the four-time Champions League winner’s love of playing for Wales has never been in doubt. In fact, it was among the many bones of contention in Spain where Real Madrid fans often felt Bale should have prioritised them more. Despite his glittering trophy cabinet and success there, the star has often faced criticism abroad. But you won’t hear any grumbling in Wales tonight. The only noise is likely to be applause for the nation’s record scorer, who stands to win his 100th cap at home to Belarus in Cardiff. It is the latest milestone in a memorable love affair which has taken Wales to the Euros twice, including the 2016 semi-finals. Bale admits he is never happier on a pitch than when he is in red and he remains focused on helping Wales achieve more by reaching their first World Cup finals since 1958. He said: “Coming away with Wales is a highlight of my year and my season. “I love being with the boys, the staff and playing in front of our fans.

We always loved to go to watch Wales and wanted them to do well. “When a fan plays for your own national team you kind of bring that passion with you. “It is such a special bond between the players, the staff and the fans. “I’m very proud and honoured to be a Welshman.” Bale has been tipped for greatness with

But few could have envisaged how he would be the driving force behind a surge up the FIFA rankings and historic Welsh success at tournament football. Bale (right) added: “To get 100 caps will personally be an incredible achievement and one you never think about when you start out. “It has been an amazing journey and one that started very young. “We have been through the lows when I first joined before we tried to grow Welsh football to put it on the right path and inspire the generations coming through. “I think even now the youngsters in the team have watched us come from a lower-ranked team to a higher-ranked team and it has given them a drive to push to get better.” But Bale knows there is another famous chapter still potentially to be written with him and Wales. The nation have not been to a World Cup since 1958 but are now guaranteed a play-off spot after winning their Nations League. Four points from their final two games will clinch second spot in Group E and a more favourable draw. Bale said: “We’re trying to push for the World Cup now, that is something at the top of everyone’s list. “It is the next thing we want to do – the thing we haven’t done before.” Wales (3-5-2): Ward; Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Roberts, Ramsey, Morrell, Allen, Thomas; James, Bale. ■DREAM TEEN: Debut against Trinidad (left) while Slovakia were his first goal victims in 2006 ■ ONE OF THE BOYOS: Bale has a laugh with team-mates during training this week ■GOOD SCHOOLING: Bale’s PE teacher Gwyn Morris morris proud of top-class pupil GARETH BALE’S 100th cap will stir memories and a sense of pride in Gwyn Morris. And the PE teacher who helped send him on his way from Whitchurch High in Cardiff says Bale’s devotion to the Wales cause will never be forgotten. He has been a driving force behind getting to successive Euros and is aiming to take Wales to next year’s World Cup. Family friend Morris said: “It will be massive for him and his family and the whole of Wales. “I can remember him getting his first cap and how proud we were as a community and school. “To do it 100 times is an incredible achievement and shows how much he cares and wants to play for Wales. “It is brilliant to see for any kid coming through because of the dedication and commitment. “It will never be forgotten. I think he has been a world icon for kids. “That is very special for a small country like Wales to produce such a top-class athlete with a superb work ethic and devotion.” Morris remembers Bale helping Whitchurch win the Cardiff & Vale Senior Cup as a 16-year-old playing for their Under-18 team. He has gone on to win La Liga and the Champions League four times with Real Madrid. Morris (right with Bale) said: “I knew we ■■ by JAMES NURSEY might have someone special when Gareth came to me and said, ‘I am sorry sir I can’t play for school tomorrow because I am playing for Southampton in the FA Youth Cup Final.’ “When he is 15 in the 2005 FA Youth Cup Final that tells me he is a hell of a prospect. He was a year younger than David Beckham when he did the same feat. “I also remember we didn’t often play year 11 boys for the seniors but he played in a cup final for us and was outstanding. “We stood back and smiled and said, ‘If he has a bit of luck and opportunity, then he could make it’. “It is nice to see what Gareth has achieved. You need dedication, attitude and skill and Gareth has those three in abundance. But he had that extra sprinkling of talent.” And Bale has not forgetten his roots. Morris added: “When Gareth has since come back to school he has brought a Southampton shirt, a Spurs shirt and a Real Madrid match-worn shirt and none of these we asked for. “He’s remembered where he has come from. It has been lovely to see him.”

He scored 10 times for his country. When he retired from playing, Ron ran a sportswear shop in town. That is what they did in those days. The trappings of the profession, the trappings of fame, were meagre. Not that it mattered to giants of the game such as Flowers, who has passed away, aged 87. Having served his country in the RAF, Flowers signed for Wolves in 1952 and the midfielder was a cornerstone of the club’s golden era, winning three league titles and an FA Cup. He is fifth on Wolves’ all-time appearance list. And Flowers served his country on the football field, scoring England’s first-ever European Championship goal, in a qualifier against France in 1962. He scored two more in the World Cup in Chile that year and of those 49 appearances, 40 of them came in succession. By the time the 1966 World Cup came along, Flowers was an elder statesman of the squad and did not play a minute of the tournament, although, on the eve of the final, Ramsey had told him he would be in if Jack Charlton had not recovered from a cold. Big Jack woke up feeling fine and the rest is history. Not that Flowers ever felt a twinge of bitterness or regret. “We were a band of brothers,” Flowers would say when, in 2009, he eventually received his World Cup winners’ medal. “I was just happy to be part of one of the greatest days in English football.” No... THE greatest day. And every man in that squad of 22 played his part in it. As mortality takes them away – only six are still alive – we are reminded of their immortality. Their achievements, Flowers’ achievements, will live forever. DS1ST The NO.1 pullout that scores EVERY time ■GOLDEN DAYS: Flowers starred for Wolves in the 1950s Warrior Ron was a giant of the game ■ REWARD: Flowers, in his later years, had to wait 43 years for a World Cup medal Torment of Sir Geoff’s saddest loss... but hurst will honour his but he will honour fellow fellow World cup heroes EVERY year, the band of brothers would take it in turn to organise a reunion and convene for a round of golf and dinner with their wives. Sir Geoff Hurst always looked forward to England’s 1966 World Cup squad teeing off and breaking bread, renewing the unbreakable bonds forged in a summer which defined them as national treasures. But as the unstoppable march of time took its toll, the Boys of ’66 gatherings petered out. One by one, they have been consigned to the celestial dressing room and now, among Sir Alf Ramsey’s untouchables, there are only three left: Sir Bobby Charlton, 84, George Cohen, 82, and Hurst, who turns 80 next month. But if Hurst misses the camaraderie of those reunions, he is saddened beyond measure that at least four of his friends – Nobby Stiles, Jack Charlton, Martin Peters and Ray Wilson – were ushered into the sunset by dementia. And 12 months ago, Sir Bobby’s wife Lady Norma courageously shared with the world that the great man had also been diagnosed with a condition that now affects 850,000 people in Britain – enough to fill Wembley 10 times over. Dementia’s cull of his fallen comrades has turned Hurst into a man on a mission. “It is painful simply to lose team-mates who were friends for life because of what we achieved together,” he said. “But it saddens me even more that a high percentage have had issues with Alzheimer’s EXCLUSIVE ■■ by mike walters or dementia-related illness. If I can help to do something about it, and help to establish support for current players and their families, it’s the least I can do to honour my former team-mates. “We all have reasons to get involved with charities, and my motives for supporting the Alzheimer’s Society and Sport United Against ■BROTHERS IN ARMS: Bobby Moore lifts the Jules Rimet trophy ■NATIONAL TREASURES: England’s World Cup-winning team Dementia movement are as strong as you can get.

Puffing out his cheeks, he said: “At West Ham, in the gym we had a ball hanging from the ceiling, and we would practise our heading technique for up to 45 minutes. “Clubs should limit the amount of time players head a ball in training. If we are going to bring the link between dementia ■RALLY CALL: RALLY Hurst CALL: is hoping to raise Hurst awareness is hoping for to raise dementia awareness sufferers for dementia sufferers and football out of the shadows, and release the stigma attached to it, now is the hour.” Two of Hurst’s goals at the 1966 World Cup – the winner against Argentina in the quarterfinal and the equaliser to make it 1-1 in the final against West Germany – were glancing headers. He does not advocate a wholesale ban on heading the ball but he said: “The passing of several of my team-mates has made me, and many others, more acutely aware of the problem. “I remember some of the 1966 squad was having dinner when Ray Wilson told us – very matter-offactly and without any fuss, because that’s the type of character he was – that he had been diagnosed with dementia. “And talking about it can only be a good thing.” CLUBS NEED TO LEAD THE WAY ■ FOOTBALL has already shown it is a force for good in the advance of medical science by installing defibrillators at every ground. Now Sir Geoff Hurst wants to make the game more dementia-friendly – with clubs leading the way. He said: “This year we have seen the value of a defibrillator, which probably saved Christian Eriksen’s life at the Euros and the Newcastle fan who collapsed at the game with Tottenham the other week. “Now football has another opportunity to make an impact which is felt beyond the game itself. “Clubs can play a part by making visits ■ by mike walters to their stadium more dementia-friendly. Going to matches, and maintaining lines of communication that were broken during the pandemic, is an important way of keeping people with dementia in the flow of everyday life. “Some clubs are leading the way. Watford are a proactive, dementiafriendly club with a fantastic programme called Golden Memories, Everton and Burnley are on the ball as well. “If every club did something similar, you will reach thousands of people who live with dementia and their carers. It would be a big step forward.” Hero’s brain research pledge SIR GEOFF HURST revealed earlier this year that he had pledged to donate his brain to medical science to help with research into degenerative illness. He admitted: “Without giving it any thought I just said ‘Yes’. ‘‘I did so without first discussing it with my wife – as I normally would on major issues. Fortunately, she ■■ by mike walters reminded me that I had already signed a form about four years earlier to say I had already made the pledge. “But if my brain can be used to help with any strain of research into what is such an important issue, I’m very happy to help.”

Rivals deserve Moore respect ■■ by DAVID ANDERSON DARREN MOORE has told his Sheffield Wednesday players they must be humble if they are going to win promotion straight back to the Championship. Wednesday are in the third tier for the third time since 2005 and Moore said: “You have to pay homage to the league and your footballing peers. “There are some wonderful clubs at this level and I’ve got the utmost respect for the other 23 clubs in League One. First and foremost, be humble and respectful and from that have a competitive edge.” Moore knows League One from his 20 months spent in it with Doncaster before taking over at Hillsborough in March and insists Wednesday are a big scalp. He says the Owls must embrace the added pressure and feels they are beginning to achieve the consistency he wants after going nine games unbeaten. Moore said: “We’ve found there’s an added edge to our opponents because of our name and size of this football club. “There is more expectation on us but we have to look forward to that and warm to it. “We want to be ultracompetitive, to gain momentum and get that consistency.” Wednesday ■edge: Moore says his side are seen as a big scalp can climb into the play-off places with victory over Gillingham at Hillsborough today. in grave danger THEY were one of the Premier League’s founder clubs in 1992 and beat Chelsea, Liverpool, manchester United and Tottenham in one season. But now Oldham are facing the prospect of becoming the first former Premier League club to drop out of the top four divisions and slide into non-league. The Latics lie above the League Two relegation zone on goal difference with their heady days as a top-flight club a distant memory for supporters. Fan protests against the current owner, Abdallah Lemsagam, have drawn attention to Oldham’s plight but have yet to achieve the desired aim of forcing the Dubai-based former football agent to sell up. More than 500 fans protested before a game against Hartlepool last month, with more direct action planned. In last month’s protests, a coffin bearing the words ‘RIP OAFC’ followed by a fan posing as the Grim Reaper, was laid to rest by the main entrance at Boundary Park by four mock pallbearers. It illustrated the demise of the Lancashire club, which has been at the heart of the local community for 126 years. Oldham fans fear that unless Lemsagam is forced out, their Fans in a desperate fight to save Latics ■■ by DAVID mcDONNELL club could go the same way as nearby Bury and Macclesfield Town, and cease to exist. Steve Shipman, spokesman for fans’ group Push The Boundary, said: “The owner takes no accountability or responsibility for everything that’s gone wrong. “The atmosphere at home games has taken a turn for the worse, a lot of apathy has set in. “We’re rooted to the bottom of the Football League, we’ve got fans walking away and a guy in charge who will kill the club. “The challenge is to keep people energised and make them realise we could drop out if we don’t all come together.” If Oldham relinquish their EFL status there is no guarantee of a return. Since 1999, 39 clubs have been relegated and only 20 have made it back. Shipman (inset) added: “We’d be the first founding member of the Premier League to drop out of the Football League, which is unthinkable. “You look at some of the teams in the National League – Wrexham, Stockport, Chesterfield – they’re league teams with pedigree and they struggle. I don’t think we’ve got the infrastructure in place to even contemplate getting back up if we went down.” Oldham have appointed nine managers since Lemsagam bought the club in January 2018, including Manchester United legend Paul Scholes. He lasted 31 days before quitting, claiming he was misled over the amount of control he would be allowed. Ex-England defender Keith Curle, who replaced axed Aussie Harry Kewell in March, is in charge but has little chance of achieving success with such turmoil behind the scenes. Many believe Oldham’s demise can be traced to 1994 at Wembley. Leading Manchester United in an FA Cup semi-final, a Mark Hughes equaliser in the 120th minute earned a replay and floored Andy Ritchie and Co. United won that 4-1 and Joe Royle’s side failed to win any of their remaining seven Premier League games and were relegated – and have never returned. Whether they can survive the drop remains to be seen. But Oldham are certainly staring into the abyss, with little hope of an escape. ■COFFIN FIT: Angry Oldham fans fear their club could go same way as Bury ■DOOMED: The message to owner Lemsagam (below) is clear

It stopped everyone being a handyman is key to his Wycombe longevity. The Chairboys chief celebrated nine years in permanent charge at Adams Park this week. He is the second longest serving manager in England but not afraid to get his hands dirty. Ainsworth (left) said: “My best weapon is talking. I believe that I’m a good communicator and I can adapt to situations. “You have to look for different ways to get around a problem. I’ve done the work of a handyman and a groundsman at this club. “Why should I throw my toys out of the pram when I can just do the job and crack on? “I jump-started the coach at Blackpool on an away trip once. The driver had to get in the cabin and I put the jump leads on. “It was also snowing once at the training ground. “The chef didn’t get in, so me and David Wates, the sports scientist, cooked breakfast for the boys of being hungry.” Wycombe were starved of money for a number of years but now have backing thanks to American owners the Couhig Family and are hunting an immediate return to the Championship. Ahead of today’s home clash with Portsmouth, Ainsworth added: “I will give everything for this club. “It is all about challenging for the Championship. That will keep me in a job rather than doing all those jobs that we now have people to do.” TOL ROVERS ■TOP MAN: Taylor with boss Barton after winning his award and (left) in action BRUISE Connor loving League Two tough life Connor Taylor put his hand up for the school of hard knocks to try to further his education. And it certainly seems to have paid off for the 20-year-old Stoke defender who is on loan at Bristol Rovers. Taylor made the deliberate decision to get game time in the lower divisions to toughen up. Now he’s been rewarded by being named the EFL’s Young Player of the Month for October and being chosen in the League Two team of the week. Two clean sheets, 34 clearances and only being dribbled past once clinched the deal for the six-footer who says he’s loving every minute of life under boss ■■ by DAVE ARMITAGE Joey Barton. Taylor said: “The way the game has gone, centre-halves now have to be decent on the ball but there is another side to the game. “In League Two it’s very physical and you’ve got to be able to handle that. “There are a lot of seasoned pros in the lower divisions and the gaffer has been showing me how you have to concentrate on the striker and not just the ball.” Taylor comes from a family of Stoke fans and says is still trying to get used to being in the same dressing room as ex-Potters star Glenn Whelan (right). The 37-year-old midfielder, who was capped 90 times by the Republic of Ireland, has been one of Taylor’s heroes for more than half of his young life. He adds: “Ever since I’ve been here I couldn’t have asked for more. The gaffer has been class. I speak to him regularly. “Then there’s Glenn of course. I was a season ticket holder at Stoke and watched him week in, week out. “I saw him play in the 2011 FA Cup final at Wembley, so to be here with him is brilliant. It brings home how far I’ve come. “I speak to him about his career. It’s good to be around a top professional who has played almost 100 international games.” Carlisle v Barrow Bristol Rov v Northampton EXETER v OLDHAM Port Vale v Bradford Rochdale v Leyton Orient SCUNTHORPE v SALFORD Stevenage v Mansfield Tranmere v Sutton WALSALL v HARROGATE TEAM TALK Carlisle keeper Lukas Jensen is unavailable for the Cumbrian derby with a wrist problem.

Rovers boss Joey Barton has suffered another blow, with the news Harvey Saunders is set to be absent for two months after tearing ankle ligaments. Northampton will continue to assess the fitness of defender Aaron McGowan who has a sickness bug. Sam Stubbs (right) (knee) is hoping to start for Exeter after an injury-hit nine months, as is Jack Sparkes (collarbone). Oldham boss Keith Curle is currently dealing with an injury-hit squad but hopes to have Nicky Adams fit to start, while Isaac Modi may be handed a chance. Veteran defender Leon Legge (knee) is pushing for a place in the Port Vale squad after making his comeback from a 10-week absence on midweek. Bradford will be boosted by the returns of Abo Eisa and Liam Ridehalgh (both hamstring). DALE striker Josh Andrews is hoping to feature after recently returning to fitness. Alex Newby and Max Taylor could also return to contention. Orient forward Paul Smyth is pushing for a starting place and Aaron Drinan should return. Keith Hill takes charge of his first league game with Scunthorpe, but has been a dealt blow with Harry Davis’ calf injury more serious than expected. Alex Kenyon could be involved, though. Salford manager Gary Bowyer will check on Ash Hunter (left) and Corrie Ndaba (both knocks). Stevenage forward James Daly is hoping to make the bench after a lengthy injury and Max Melbourne is ready to step up his return following coronavirus. Mansfield will assess Elliott Hewitt (glute), George Lapslie (thigh) and Rhys Oates (groin). Striker Danny Johnson could start. Tranmere boss Micky Mellon is expected to recall a host of players after making 10 changes for the Papa John’s Trophy win against Oldham.

High drama at Cheltenham PAGE 3 ■OVERDUE: Midnight Shadow has been threatening to win a big race ■■ by JASON HEAVEY THE time is ripe for MIDNIGHT SHADOW (2.15) to bag the big race he has been promising to win. Everything looks perfect for Sue Smith’s eight-year-old in one of the most competitive Paddy Power Gold Cups for many years. Most of the 20 runners have some sort of chance but Midnight Shadow ticks every box. He loves Cheltenham, is fairly treated and he ran an excellent race on his seasonal return at Aintree. His second to handicap blot Chatham Street Lad in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup (he was 12 lengths clear of the third) off a higher rating last December is stand-out form.

2 Saturday, November 13, 2021 StarForm DS1ST britain’s number one Byrnes’ Blazing success ■■ by CHRIS GOULDING IRISH trainer Charles Byrnes put his six-month ban behind him when saddling Blazing Khal to victory in the Ballymore Hurdle at Cheltenham. Byrnes, a renowned punter, was warned off after his runner Viking Hoard failed a dope test when pulling up at Tramore in October 2018. The Limerick trainer (above) plans to return to the Cheltenham Festival in March with the Donal McInerney-ridden Blazing Khal. “I’d be thinking of the Albert Bartlett, but if the ground was soft he could go for the Ballymore,” said Byrnes. It was a landmark winner for a delighted McInerney, who said: “It’s my first winner here, it’s brilliant. “I was happy enough with where I was but it was getting a bit tight for him and I just had to sit. “He’s still a bit green and novicey over his hurdles, but he was good there.” Time for Midnight From Page 1 The new Paul Nicholls recruits Lalor and Simply The Betts cannot be discounted. It will be interesting to see if Bryony Frost can get a good tune out of Simply The Betts, who likes to front run and will be dangerous if given an easy lead. Protektorat has been aimed at the contest, although he tends to have two ways of running, while Nietzsche should outrun his odds of 18-1. There is masses of each-way value, especially with those bookies offering a place for the first six. But last year’s winner Coole Cody looks the best each-way play at a generous 14-1. He is running off just a 4lb higher mark than 2020. pYRAMID SCHEMER Place looks an ace for in-form Milton IMAGING DGGDGD DGDGDGDG VIEW FROM THE COUCH By Mark Winstanley IN the From The Horse’s Mouth Podcast Novices’ Chase run over two miles at Cheltenham, it’s hard to get away from the chances of THIRD TIME LUCKI (1.40), who jumped like Bob Beamon – come on, surely you haven’t forgotten Mexico City 1968? – when making a successful fencing debut over course and distance in October. With Dan Skelton’s horses in great form, this exciting creature looks a penalty kick if he is in the same mood. With 20 animals lining up for the Paddy Power Gold Cup over two and a half miles, hunt down a benevolent bookie who is paying six places and back MANOFTHEMOUNTAIN (2.15) each-way at 20-1. Emma Lavelle’s fast, fluent jumper boasts form figures of 2124112 when racing on good ground and showed his liking for Prestbury Park when obliging over today’s trip off a perch of 137 in April. He runs off a revised ledge of 144, but he had an ideal prep over an inadequate trip at Chepstow last month to put him cherry-ripe for this, and his stable had a welcome winner at Lingfield on Tuesday. James Nash may not be one of the more fashionable Irish trainers but he rode untold bumper winners for Willie Mullins so is bound to have picked up a thing or two from him. He sends SCHEU TIME (2.50) to Gloucestershire to contest the three-mile Paddy Power Games Handicap Hurdle, so the horse is worth an each-way nibble at 20-1. The eight-year-old was fifth off a rating of 124 on his last spin at Gowran Park in October, and the second and third have franked the form by subsequently winning. Racing off a mark of 127 with the ■IN FORM: Pyramid Place ran a cracker at Chepstow last time excellent Gavin Brouder taking off 5lb, the County Kildare raider will think he is running loose with only 10st 2lb on his back. Ideally housed in stall one of 11, the 106-rated HARRY’S BAR (3.05) looks a corking each-way wager at 6-1 to at least hit the frame in the Betway Golden Rose Stakes run over six furlongs at Lingfield Park. This six-year-old is 2-3 on the sand dunes at this track, and I’m sure Ado McGuinness is not coming over from County Dublin for a three-hour wait at the adjacent Gatwick airport. Having the excellent Tom Marquand in the IMAGING DGGDGD DGDGDGDG saddle seals the deal, as he has twice steered the hold-up performer to victory. Milton Harris and Paddy Brennan teamed up to capture the Paddy Power Handicap Hurdle over two miles and five furlongs at Cheltenham last year with a 128-rated beast, so I’m hoping the bang in-form Wiltshire handler can repeat the trick with an inmate racing off a perch of 123. PYRAMID PLACE (3.25) is the name of the horse and he ran a cracker on his seasonal bow over two miles at Chepstow last month when second of 11 – beaten less than a length – under a 3lb claimer ■GOLD STANDARD: Manofthemountain has each-way claims in the Paddy Power Gold Cup off a ledge of 119. He stayed on very strongly from the last, suggesting this longer trip will see him in an even better light. On Remembrance weekend, what better race title to have than the Betway Churchill Stakes run over a mile and a quarter at Lingfield Park, where I’m hoping Hollie Doyle will be giving the V for victory sign after the 108-rated FELIX (3.40) passes the post in first position. Well drawn in stall six of 10, Marco Botti’s animal has form figures of 221 over track and trip, so the 7-2 on offer with the layers looks the each-way wager of the season.

DS1ST Saturday, November 13, 2021 3 PULLOUT FOR BIG WINNERS in association with ■HAPPY FAMILY: Proschema and Third Time Lucki (below right) can make it a good day for the Skelton brothers GO WITH THE PRO VIEW FROM THE COUCH By Mark Winstanley ■CRAFTY BET: Fox Tal can land the Churchill Stakes at Lingfield Double on cards for Skeltons PROSCHEMA (2.50) can spearhead a good day for the Skelton brothers at Cheltenham this afternoon. The six-year-old produced a career best when second to Indefatigable in a Grade Two race at Wetherby last month. He faces a simpler task in the Paddy Power Games Handicap Hurdle, will relish the good ground and has winning form at Prestbury Park. He looks a cut above his rivals, although Dragon Bones ran well at the Showcase meeting last month and is a danger, along with Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Ballymillsy. Dan and Harry Skelton take the wraps off the exciting THIRD TIME LUCKI (1.40) in the Grade Two From The Horse’s Mouth Podcast Novices’ Chase. He could not have been more impressive when bounding clear to win on his fencing debut last month, when he jumped really well and looked like a natural. Third Time Lucki will not be by JASON HEAVEY much of a price but better value is MACKELDUFF (3.25, nb) – a comfortable winner at Aintree 20 days ago. Olly Murphy’s progressive grey appeals in the Paddy Power Feel Like A Favourite Intermediate Hurdle. He won with a bit in hand on Merseyside and is another who will appreciate the decent surface. He has easy Wetherby victor Unexpected Party and Brian Ellison’s well treated Punxsutawney Phil to beat. The ITV cameras are also at Lingfield, where HARRY’S BAR (3.05), who likes the track, is tipped to win the Betway Golden Rose Stakes, while the enigmatic FOX TAL (3.40) might just be the answer in the Betway Churchill Stakes. RACHAEL’s miracle CHRIS GOULDING GRAND NATIONAL heroine Rachael Blackmore performed a minor miracle after her mount Gin On Lime crumpled on landing at the secondlast fence at Cheltenham – but still managed to win. Victory looked certain for the odds-on favourite My Drogo in the two-horse affair as he breezed into the lead approaching the obstacle. But he slithered on landing and handed the prize on a plate to Blackmore. Gin On Lime clouted the fence but Blackmore somehow managed to sit tight and stay in the saddle. It had looked game over with no winner declared but the golden girl from Tipperary saved the day and was applauded by the Cheltenham racegoers and her weighing room colleagues. Tom Scudamore, watching events unfold in the weighing room, said: “Phenomenal, just an incredible bit of horsemanship. She’s a phenomenal jockey. “Extraordinary things happen to extraordinary people, don’t they? I have never seen anything like that before. “I sat watching with Brian Hughes [former champion jockey] and we looked at each other and both said did that actually happen?” Blackmore, never one to get carried away, played down the moment. “It was a very strange race,” she said. “The ball bounced right for me. “It was quite a slow-motion thing. Those ones are okay.” Winning trainer Henry de Bromhead summed it up best when he said: “It’s just madness to be honest. You don’t expect that to happen, do you?” Dan Skelton, trainer of My Drogo, the horse he considers a future Cheltenham Gold Cup contender, observed: “He would have won – we all know that – but at least he is all right. “I’m frustrated he has ended up not completing his race and that goes on his record, but that doesn’t mean he is any less of a horse.” ■ Phenomenal: My Drogo (right) and Gin On Lime both crumple but Rachael Blackmore (below) manages to stay on

4 Saturday, November 13, 2021 StarForm Gite’s star quality Editeur Du Gite evoked memories of the great Sire De Grugy when winning the Mucking Brilliant Paddy Power Handicap at Cheltenham yesterday. The seven-yearold, trained by Gary Moore, runs in the same silks as Moore’s 2014 Queen Mother Champion Chase winner for the Preston family. After Editeur Du Gite had beaten Stolen Silver by a neck under Niall Houlihan, Steve Preston (above) said: “It’s another dream ■■ by CHRIS GOULDING come true. Sire De Grugy wasn’t this good at this stage and we have our fingers crossed that this one can be as good as anything. “He was so good today and the jockey said he was idling late on, so we hope he’s going to be better. “He’s certainly getting better with every run he has. “Sire wasn’t special until he was eight and this lad turns eight in January, so maybe he’s got some more improvement.” REDHOTBOOKIEBASHER SUPERBWINNERSMONTHAFTERMONTH FROMMYWELCONECTEDCONTACTS BIGWINNINGDAY>LINEDUPTODAY Cal09061749389 Lineupdatesat 10amand4pmdaily Linesupdatedat10am&4pmdaily.Calswilcost£1.50perminuteplusyourtelephonecompany’snetworkaccess charge.SP:Spoke.Helpdesk03332023390.BookieBashermaycontactyoubySMSwithofers-Tooptinto receivingadviceandinformationtextBBYESsendto84902(networkchargeonlyapplies) PUNCHESTOWN 12.00 WOLVERHAMPTON DS1ST TRACKFACTS A right handed undulating, rather rectangular looking track that extends 2 miles.

On Festival running there is little between him and Put The Kettle On – but what swings it is the tip’s hugely impressive seasonal debut in 2020. A repeat of the display which saw him defeat former champion Altior, on ground that suits, should book his ticket to the winner’s enclosure. JESSE EVANS (2.55) can keep the Irish bandwagon rolling on at Cheltenham in the Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle. Noel Meade has spied the £56,270 first prize for the smart performer, on his first run away from home. He is fit from the Flat, having justified short odds at Navan, and his trainer suggested a couple of big handicap targets in the post-race debrief – and committed to SUNDAY SERVICE Melissa Jones batters the bookies the Cheltenham challenge. Fellow Irishman Emmet Mullins landed the pot last year with The Shunter and the selection has what it takes to back it up. He was fourth at a big price in the Galway Hurdle, just two-and-a-half lengths behind the winner, and has the ability to quicken and pick his rivals off. The booking of 5lb claimer EJ Walsh takes his weight down to a plausible mark on his latest hurdles effort. Albert Bartlett runner-up OSCAR ELITE (1.10) is the mallardjewellers.com Novices’ Chase pick, after being a shining light for his stable last season. The Tizzards won this with The Big Breakaway 12 months ago and their horses are in much better form now – and the gelding looks an exciting recruit. 9

12 Saturday, November 13, 2021 DS1ST StarBets BRITAIN’S NUMBER ONE BETTING GUIDE bale to cap YES HE ZAN: Zanza is a Cheltenham fancy Zan’s the man in Gold Cup Another rollover from last week means there’s an estimated combined pool of £275,000 up for grabs in he Scoop6 today. Leg one is the super-competitive Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham, where Zanza gets the vote. He was given a good shout by Tote ambassador Richard Johnson on our weekend preview and big things are expected. Proschema ran a big race to finish second in the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby a few weeks ago and can go one better in leg two. The Skeltons are really starting to find these top Saturday horses and they can add another to that list. The third leg takes us to a Listed all-weather contest at Lingfield, and the Irish raider Harry’s Bar can strike with the notable booking of Tom Marquand. The course and distance winner had no luck in running at Dundalk last time. There’s another Cheltenham by LUKE PARKINSON handicap to tackle in leg four and this can go the way of Gowel Road. He was twice a winner at Newbury last season and although he’s disappointed since, he’s worth another chance up in trip. Lingfield’s Listed Churchill Stakes looks a classy race in leg five, but it’s hard to get away from Pyledriver, who won the Coronation Cup back in June. The Scoop6 finale takes us back to Cheltenham and Martha Willow is an interesting northern runner. She’ll need to improve, but that can be expected given her trip south. Tips Cheltenham 2.15 Zanza Cheltenham 2.50 Proschema Lingfield 3.05 Harry’s Bar Cheltenham 3.25 Gowel Road Lingfield 3.40 Pyledriver Cheltenham 3.55 Martha Willow his big day Wales centurion has Qatar in his sights ■HISTORY MAKER: Gareth Bale will win his 100th cap for Wales today Steve Anderson tipped Manchester City to be leading half-time and full-time last weekend in the Manchester derby with rivals United. WALES hero Gareth Bale has the perfect chance to mark his 100th cap in style against Belarus. The Real Madrid forward scored a hat-trick the last time Wales met today’s opponents – including a 93rd-minute match winner – in a 3-2 victory in September. Don’t expect another treble at the Cardiff City Stadium but I wouldn’t be surprised if Bale gets his name on the scoresheet again. Belarus are the whipping boys of Group E in the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup with six defeats in a row, although their odds for the Cardiff clash have been shortening this week. Wales are still big favourites at Sky Bet’s 2-9 for the win, with Belarus 12-1. The draw is 9-2. Bale and his colleagues are likely to qualify for the play-offs for Qatar thanks to their Nations League efforts but finishing second in this group could earn a home draw in the knockout. But first they have to see off Belarus and that may not be as easy as the Dragons fans will be hoping. Since they were trounced 8-0 by Belgium back in March, Belarus have tightened up at the back and in September both the Belgians and Czech Republic laboured to 1-0 wins against them – while Wales only edged that 3-2 win on neutral territory in Russia. by STEVE ANDERSON More recently, today’s visitors fell to 2-0 defeats to Estonia and the Czechs – but Wales own form has been erratic. They disappointingly drew a blank in their last home game against Estonia but bagged a decent 2-2 draw away to Czech Republic – then sweated their way to a 1-0 win in Estonia. I reckon Rob Page’s men will bag the three points today but they will have to work hard for them. I’d take Sky Bet’s correct score group betting odds of 11-8 that Wales win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1. The 2-0 scoreline is probably the most likely and that is 9-2 with Betfred, while you can get 11-4 on Sky Bet’s handicap that it’s a draw with Wales giving up a two-goal start. Aaron Ramsey found the net against the Czechs and he could well open the scoring – he’s a tempting 9-5 to score at any time and 5-1 to get the first. If you take the Juventus ace to net first in a 2-0 win, then you’ll get 17-1 for the scorecast. But it’s all about Bale today and he could be the man to round things off. He’s just 7-10 to net any time but I’d go for the 23-10 that he scores the last goal. In other qualifers tomorrow, for a 2-1 treble take Greece to beat Kosovo, Portugal to edge out Serbia and Spain to see off the challenge of Sweden. It’s hard to see past the deadly darting duo The Grand Slam of Darts, one of the final tournaments before next month’s World Championship, gets underway this afternoon at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton. Jose de Sousa is the reigning champ but the seventh seed has been drawn in a tough group alongside Cool Hand Luke Humphries, Mensur Suljovic and Canadian Matt by MARK PEARSON Campbell. He’s a 16-1 shot and will likely struggle to retain his title. Gerwyn Price (right) won this tournament at this venue in 2018 and 2019 and is 10-3 joint favourite with Michael van Gerwen. He has reached at least the quarter-final of every TV tournament this year and the reigning world champion and world No.1 should progress to the knockout stages with the minimum of fuss. The top seed has a huge favourite’s chance, but Betfred’s offer of 6-5 about either Price or Van Gerwen winning the title looks a cracking piece of value. Despite MvG failing to reach the winner’s spot in PEARSON’S TOP PICK Michael van Gerwen or Gerwyn Price have won five of the last six Grand Slam of Darts tournaments and the 6-5 that either wins this year is too good to pass up front of the cameras this year, he did get to the European Championship final last month and surely his turn is near. We have spent years having to take odds-on quotes for Mighty Mike to win tournaments, yet here we can get 6-5 about him or Price striking. MvG is the third seed, so the pair will be kept apart in the draw and the 6-1 that they meet in the final is another bet to consider. Of those at bigger prices, James Wade (28-1) is a three-time GSOD finalist and should progress from Group C, along with recent European Championship winner Rob Cross (16-1).

Jeff lowe is among the familiar faces returning S eccentric zoo owner Joe exotic was a hit with fans sink your teeth into a second series chronicling the madness and mayhem in the bizarre world of big cat owners Gripping the globe with more than 64 million households tuning in to watch within a month of its release, Tiger King quickly became the roaring success of 2020, catapulting the people it featured to fame overnight. Netflix promised it would return for a second season, and the streaming giant is finally delivering. In September, a tweet had assured Tiger King fans the second season would be packed with “just as much mayhem and madness” as the first. And, going by the trailer, that was no overstatement. The Emmy-nominated saga continues its twisted tale as new revelations emerge on the motivations, backstories and secrets of America’s most notorious big cat owners. In this latest chapter, Joe Exotic is back and on the hunt for the truth... albeit from his prison cell in Fort Worth, Texas. The disgruntled cat fanatic – who is serving a 22- year sentence after being exotic is serving a 22-year jail term convicted of a plot to have a hitman kill his critic, Carole Baskin – wants to know why his enemies are all raking in cash while he is caged. Also this series, familiar faces Jeff Lowe, Tim Stark, Allen Glover and James Garretson return for more mayhem and madness. Plus, it looks like the docu-series delves into the enigma that is conservationist Carole’s late hubby, Don Lewis. But with her suing the production company for featuring her in the trailer, who knows what will make the final cut? Two things are for certain, though. We were wrong to think we knew the whole story – and Tiger King remains the cat’s whiskers of reality TV. The welfare of big cats has been a show focus While Netflix dives deeper into the madness that is Tiger King, Carole Baskin is determined to show viewers another side to her. In this Discovery+ docu-series, she and her husband Howard get their hands dirty in an attempt to end big cat cruelty in the United States. They and their team of conservationists probe the cruelty inflicted upon big cats and come toe-to-toe with the most dangerous operators. Since Joe Exotic – who ran the infamous GW Zoo in Oklahoma – was arrested for trying to have Carole killed, the conservationist has been awarded custody of the property. In this gripping twopart series, Carole and her team search the zoo for hidden evidence of animal trafficking and abuse. Assisting Carole is none other than Joe’s niece Chealsi, who spent the majority of her childhood working at the zoo and has first-hand knowledge of what went on there. Chealsi’s unique insight helps Carole’s team unearth some unbelievable evidence of the horrors that occurred at the zoo on Joe’s watch. “This is a unique opportunity for audiences to come behind the scenes with us for an unfiltered look at how we expose the cub-petting exploiters and roadside zoos we feel are mistreating animals,” says Carole. “This is our real-life work within a dangerous world and viewers will see it comes with our people being threatened, guns pointed at us and the bad guys shooting at our drones.” Discover a new side to carole Baskin as she keeps up her fight against big cat cruelty caRolE basKIN’s caGE fIGhT From saturday, Discovery+ SHOWiNG HER TRuE STRiPES • Editor-in-chief Caroline Waterston (maternity) • Acting editor-in-chief Karen Cross • Acting deputy editors-in-chief Rowan Erlam and Lizzie Smith • Acting celebrity & entertainment director Lisa Jarvis • Acting deputy celebrity & entertainment director Jenny Kyte • Celebrity editor Sarah Morton • TV editor Jenny Rodger • Entertainment editor Clare Fisher • Creative director Polly Brown • Art editor Lauren Richards-Ozzati • Deputy art editors Chloe Reeves and Louise Robinson • Acting deputy art editor Alexandra Hurst • Picture editors Sal Jackson, Abby Wells and Sarah White • Senior picture researchers Jeanne Terblanche and Lina Darton • Production director Jennie Wignall • Chief sub editors Becky Ward and Natalie Bowen • Deputy chief sub editors Melanie Hancill and Sam Kistamah • Group image quality manager Simon Spann • Senior studio manager Lee Edwards Photos: Getty HOT TV 3

FEATURES Acclaimed author Irvine Welsh’s crime story is brought to the small screen crime BritBox, streaming from Thursday Dougray Scott plays troubled DI Ray Lennox in this gritty new drama, in which the police are investigating the disappearance of a 13-year-old girl. Lennox is quickly convinced the disappearance is linked to a serial killer nicknamed Mr Confectioner – a case he’s become obsessed by. And as he delves deeper, he must put his own problems – including drink and drug addiction – to one side. “Stuff happened to Lennox as a kid, so he went into being a copper because he felt that was the best way to avenge what happened,” Dougray, 55, says. “What makes him a great copper also makes him a bad copper, because he’s impetuous and he works off the cuff.” Ex-Corrie star Angela Griffin plays his girlfriend A textbook cAse Trudy, while Joanna Vanderham stars as his new partner DS Amanda Drummond. “Lennox is reluctant to see his old partner retiring and he wasn’t expecting the new partner to be Amanda,” Dougray tells us. “He likes her but he’s trying to educate her about the reality of life. Amanda is a modern police person, Lennox is a realist.” It’s the first time Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh has adapted one of his own novels for TV, and Dougray is also an executive producer on the show, which he’s had a long association with. “I’ve been involved with this project for 10 years,” he reveals. “I went to Irvine Welsh to get him to write something for me. He said, ‘Have you read Crime?’ I was blown away by it. “My wife said to me last week, ‘What do you think you’d have done if you weren’t an actor?’ And I said, ‘A cop!’” ‘Trudi Thinks she can fix him’ hi, angela! Tell us about your character… Trudi is someone who started at the bottom and has worked and achieved her goal of becoming management. She wants the life and she wants the man. She and Lennox haven’t been together long and this case awakens something in him Trudi didn’t know about. She thinks she can fix him, but she doesn’t understand the depths of the darkness. Dougray’s character Lennox is in deep as he probes a child’s disappearance her dream job doesn’t work out the way she hoped… She really needs some advice from Lennox, but he doesn’t necessarily take the straight road when he is solving problems, which takes her to the dark side. With co-stars Jamie Sives, Sarah McCardie, Joanna Vanderham, Ken Stott and Michael Abubakar Angela plays Lennox’s girlfriend, Trudi how did you find working with dougray? Because of Covid, we didn’t do anything face-to-face before shooting. It was like, “Hello, we have to look like we’ve been together for six months.” He just took my hand and it was instant. He’s amazing. did you read irvine’s book before you took the part? I did. But the book is set in Miami, so I thought I’d signed up for Miami! Although Scotland is lovely. 6 HOT TV

Lots of new famous faces will be spinning around with fun categories – Richard E Grant on movies, Bill Bailey on birds, John Bercow on Parliament, Claudia Winkleman on art, Michael Ball on musicals. Penny Lancaster on Rod Stewart is a fun one. And there are returning guests like Dermot O’Leary on Jaws and Carol Vorderman on maths. Reverend Richard Coles didn’t get spun in to answer a question on the first series and came back and didn’t get spun in again! Did any of the celebs surprise you with their knowledge or lack of knowledge in subjects? Big Narstie came on the show with his expert subject being dogs – all I can say is what he lacked in knowledge he more than made up for with humour. Peter Andre had a similarly disappointing but hilarious time on The Wheel. And Melvin Odoom, who came bottom of the celebrity rankings in the first series has obviously been revising ever since. Michael Mcintyre’s the Wheel Saturday, 8pm, BBC One If you were one of the experts, what would your specialist subject be and why? I genuinely seem to have no particular area of expertise. I am useless at trivia and never know the answer to any of the questions on The Wheel. Even when I watch the shows back, I forget what the answer was. Where you surprised at the reaction to the first series? We made the first series in the pre-vaccine time of the pandemic. It was so exciting to be working with a semblance of normality again. I loved the show from the first recording and am so pleased it was not only an instant success but continues to grow in popularity. Do you enjoy hosting a game show? Before the pandemic I had no plans to ever host a game show. Unique circumstances led to the creation and hosting of this show and, totally unexpectedly, I think this might end up being the best vehicle for me. There is so much for me to play with comedically on The Wheel – the celebs, their subjects, the contestants, the questions. I also get to dance. What’s not to like? What do you hope viewers will take away from the show? For me the Holy Grail of great TV is to make viewers laugh and cry, the full spectrum of emotion. That’s what I tried to do on The Big Show and it can be the same on The Wheel, as there’s lots of laughs as well as highly dramatic gameplay. Can you describe The Wheel in three words? Spinning, laughs, drama. The much-loved comic is back with a new series of the show that gets celebs in a spin Give it a Hands up if you’re addicted to watching the explosive drama unfold on The Real Housewives – in every version of the hit format?

start your engines Paddy, you endure an epic slip-up at Silverstone that costs you and the boys the race. Is it fair to say the pressure got to you? [Laughs] We only had the F1 drivers for 15 minutes and that put me on edge. I definitely had a few Covid kilos on me as well. Did Chris and Freddie feel for you at all? They loved every moment of it! You also got to meet your hero, Eddie Kidd. What was that like? It was emotional. I watched him on telly as a kid and everyone had the Evel Knievel toy when we were growing up. To walk into his house and meet him… well, I got a bit choked up. top gear Sunday, 8pm, bbc1 The BBC car show is back with more speed, stunts and side-splitting laughter than ever before Presenters Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris return for another thrilling series of Top Gear. This time around, Paddy, 48, realises a childhood dream, while Fred, 43, tests his mettle on the track and Chris, 46, bites off more than he can chew. In addition to all the usual shenanigans, petrolheads can look forward to plenty of supercar speed tests and four-wheeled phenomena. To kick off the show’s 31st run, the boys head to Silverstone to take on Formula 1 superstars Paddy McGuinness Freddie Flintoff Chris Harris Freddie, we see you earn a racing licence in this series… I didn’t realise how hard it was! I was of the opinion that the fastest car wins, but there’s so much skill and concentration involved. In cricket, you concentrate for two seconds at a time and switch off. If you do that on the track, you’re in trouble! You ate the world’s hottest chilli. What was that like? It’s the worst thing I’ve ever had. I’ve not drunk milk for eight years but I couldn’t get enough of it. It was awful and then that night... I’m not even gonna go into it. Are any of your kids into cars? My daughter’s just started learning to drive – she actually loves cars. Chris, what was it like going up against the F1 drivers? It was an absolute dream come true. The drivers had really good chat. From the moment we got there, they were dishing it out – which is exactly what we wanted. How was the chilli challenge? It was pretty horrendous and, without going into too much detail, there’s another part of the process you’ve got to deal with as well. It was just a nail-the-presenters challenge and it really did work. And the other eating challenges? There was some bad stuff in there. Rams’ testicles for one. But I had to step up. Paddy wasn’t going to do it, so it was left to me. Freddie, Chris and Paddy host the 31st series of Top Gear FEATURES Antonio Giovinazzi, Lando Norris and Sebastian Vettel. Paddy experiences an alltime low on the track, but it’s soon remedied when he gets to meet his childhood hero, former stunt driver Eddie Kidd. Expect tears, joy and a jaw-dropping stunt sequence performed by the best in the biz. Also in this series, the lads test electric caravans in the Northumberland countryside where they’re subjected to “hot laps” – a chilli-eating challenge.

grave danger FEATURES Gillian Millane with a family photo of her daughter Grace (below) Power Diana: qUEEn of StylE Monday, 10pm, Channel 4 ITV’s new true crime series brings three shocking homicide cases to life Social MEDia MURDERS Monday-Wednesday, 9pm, ITV2 Many of us flick through social media and apps without a care in the world, but ITV2’s new series looks at the terrifying role they can play within society. True crime show Social Media Murders follows three distinctly different murder cases over three nights. But there’s one thing that ties the tragedies together – the chilling way in which social media brought together culprit and victim. The first film opens the case file of British backpacker Grace Millane, who mysteriously went missing during her trip to New Zealand’s Auckland in 2018, following a Tinder date the night before her 22nd birthday. Just one week after the young girl’s disappearance, police arrested her date – Jesse Kempson, 26. He was later charged and sentenced to life in prison for her death. Combining CCTV footage of Grace’s last appearance with police interview tapes, the eye-opening show will look at how her killer was brought to justice, and how the case even changed laws here in Britain. The second case focuses on Alex Rodda, who was horrifically murdered when he was just 15 years old at the hands of 18-year-old Matthew Mason in December 2019. Mason began grooming Alex by messaging on apps like Facebook and Snapchat, before the pair embarked on a sexual relationship. But six weeks later Mason, who had a girlfriend at the time, took unforgivable actions to hide his sexuality. Meanwhile, the last film tells the story of Molly McLaren, 23, who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend Joshua Stimpson in 2017. The former couple met on Tinder but a few months into their relationship, Molly called things off, explaining that Stimpson was growing increasingly more controlling. Then, in a cruel Killer Stimpson twist of fate, Stimpson began harassing Molly on Facebook, before using the site to track her movements. He then followed her to her gym and killed her. Each of the three powerful films are tough to watch, but the victims’ families say that they hope they can highlight a valuable lesson that will help to change things for future generations. dressing A new documentary looks at how Princess Diana’s outfits made the news, and set the agenda From a shy teenager to a global style star, Princess Diana’s clothes helped her reveal her feelings and connect to the public. And today she’s still influencing fashion designers and modern royals. This show tells the story of Diana’s life through her WEDDING WONDER Elizabeth and David Emanuel found fame designing one of the most legendary wedding dresses of all time, with a train so long it barely fitted in Diana’s carriage to St Paul’s Cathedral. The entire world watched the stunning bride, and crowds still flock to see the dress on display now. DANcING WITH TRAVOlTA When Diana danced with John Travolta at a White House dinner in November 1985, the photographers went wild. The midnight blue velvet dress was designed by Victor Edelstein, and it’s been on display since Kensington Palace bought it at auction in 2019 for £264,000. most famous outfits. Covering the fairy-tale ballgowns, the “Revenge Dress” and her iconic 80s knits, Diana: Queen Of Style uses Diana’s relationship with clothes to give a window into her changing feelings and show how, way before social media, she knew the power of an image. THE REVENGE DRESS Diana had turned down an invitation to the charity dinner at the Serpentine Gallery in London in June 1994. But following days of coverage about Prince Charles’s infidelity, she changed her mind. On the night the famous interview – in which he admitted adultery – was screened, Diana wore this showstopper, and it became known as the “Revenge Dress”. Later pictures – like this of Diana at the ballet in 1997 – show how much her style had evolved. She went from the young “Sloane STylE Ranger” in EVOlUTION blouses and ballet pumps to the honed icon happy to flaunt her figure, with the best hairdo of her life.

FEATURES Kelly is forced to sleep rough after leaving jail Kelly’s nightmare Kelly may be out of prison now but her life is still on the skids Frightened Kelly finds herself having to sleep rough after her release from jail in Coronation Street. And when she later takes refuge in a hotel foyer and accepts help from a male guest, she puts herself at further risk. Millie Gibson, 17, who plays the troubled character, tells us more... Hi, Millie! Is Kelly at rock-bottom yet again when she finds herself on the streets? Yes, and in some ways it’s even worse than when she was in prison, which is really shocking to see as you wouldn’t have thought it could get any worse – but it does. She’s free but in a way she’s still locked into this nightmare because of what she’s done. She still can’t escape it and feels more alone than ever. At least in prison she had Toyah and Imran’s support, but now they have to focus on Elsie and she finds herself on her own. Why doesn’t she reach out to Imran and Toyah? She can see they have turned their attention to Elsie now but also I think she wants to learn to stand on her own two feet. They’ve helped her for so long that I think she wants to prove to herself she still has that in her after everything that’s happened. But she’s still so young and it feels like the whole world is against her now. Were you surprised to read what’s next for Kelly? And as an actress were you pleased that her release isn’t just the happy ending it could have been? I knew she was going to have a tough time when she got out of prison and everyone wouldn’t be welcoming her back with open arms. But her being homeless and finding herself thinking about turning to this strange man in desperation was quite shocking. As an actress, I’m so grateful that they think I can manage storylines like this. It’s been amazing to get my teeth into it. What happens at the hotel with the man, Alan, who invites her to his room? Kelly does have trust issues with men after her dad leaving her, She grows closer to Aadi then what happened with Corey she’s got a form of PTSD since and now this. She’s desperate for the attack, which triggers when help and I think she knows his she gets certain reminders. She’s intentions are not right – but in definitely going to have the scars that moment she feels she’s out for a long time. of options. After this, I think she’ll have even more trust issues with men. She’s been left with scars and she’s almost quite territorial over the need to protect herself. It’s I do really love their friendship. going to be hard for her to open They’re like two lost souls, but also up to anyone at this point. very different in their upbringing and morals, so I do think he’s quite well suited to Summer as they’re both on the same wavelength. Aadi She might not show it too much is possibly a bit out of his depth externally but inside I think this with Kelly. She’s complicated. But has really changed her. I think I love their friendship and how he’s there for her. How damaged is she after what she’s been through? We’re seeing a friendship developing with Aadi. Would you like to explore that more? What sort of reaction are you getting to Kelly now? Do you think people are starting to have sympathy for her? At first everyone hated her, but now we’ve seen the other side and what actually happened, some people do feel the way she was treated in court was harsh. It’s a hard judgement to call – is she villain or victim? I think she’s both. She did start things off that night with the slap and the vindictive behaviour. But now that we’re starting to see her vulnerability I think some people are warming to her. 12 HOT TV

HOROSCOPES Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19 Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20 RUSSELL GRANT Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 Discussions go round in circles. You’re aware of other people’s opinions as they make sure their voices get heard. But now you’ve heard them, you will make your own decisions. Someone who’s new to your workplace is good at hiding their true feelings. Your intuition rarely lets you down, but at present you just can’t work them out. Before taking up a senior colleague’s proposal, think carefully. It’s tempting but are they motivated by what’s best for you, or what’s best for themselves? You’ll find it less stressful to stick with jobs you’re familiar with. Taking on overtime will give you a great excuse to pull out of social plans you hadn’t been keen on. 0905 789 3651 0905 789 3652 0905 789 3641 0905 789 3642 Gemini May 22 – June 22 Cancer June 23 – July 23 Leo July 24 – Aug 23 Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23 A shopping trip with a friend will be productive. They will not only help you save money but they’ll also spot something you’ve been looking for at a price you can afford. A family member is asking you to part with your cash. Whether it’s to buy something they can’t afford for themselves or to give them a loan, don’t feel obliged to agree to their proposal. You and your family will be discussing the possibility of relocating from the city to the countryside or vice versa. Only take action, though, when you all agree. You’d rather take your time with a task and get it right. You know that one small error could take ages to correct and that’s why you are annoyed with someone who’s careless. 0905 789 3643 0905 789 3644 0905 789 3645 0905 789 3646 Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23 Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 22 Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 21 Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20 A colleague is leaving you to do all the work. You don’t like to say no but you don’t like the way they’re taking your kindness for granted. It’s time to stand up for yourself. You’re impatient to see results, but the more care you put into what you do, the better it will be. If you rush into anything, it’s very likely the wrong decisions will be made. You prefer to get on with things rather than sit around talking about other people’s intentions. If they don’t take action soon, you will move forward without them. You don’t want to take over a job that puts you in the limelight – you much prefer working behind the scenes. But be prepared to step in at the last moment for an absent colleague. 0905 789 3647 0905 789 3648 0905 789 3649 0905 789 3650 **Calls cost 80p per minute plus your telephone company’s network access charge – maximum of five minutes duration.
