Mr & Mrs: Charlie & Sophie Leigh Adam


Liverpool’s Charlie Adam married his WAG of three years, Sophie Leigh (née Anderson), on the banks of Loch Lomond on 16 June 2012. Their reception followed immediately after – held at the five-star Cameron House – while our coverage of their big day did not (soz). The groom wore a traditional Scottish kilt, four bridesmaids donned £300 nude Loubs and the bride was outfitted in a fitted lacy number. You can rest easier, Kickettes, knowing her wedding gown wasn’t bad enough to kill anyone since zero fashion-related deaths were reported. That’s something to be thankful for.

Yesterday, all still seemed to be well with the newlyweds as they were out and about in the Pool shopping for designer knickers. We think Sophie was looking rather floaty and happy in her blazer, outdated skull scarf and metallic trainers. And also, nouveau riche. And giddy. And not worried about her recently cash rich bank account in the slightest. And so on.

Congratulations to the couple!

Alex Gerrard: Prime Time Viewing Priorities


Although she’s married (5 years strong!) to the current captain of Liverpool FC and the England national team, athletics (watching or playing) aren’t really Alex G’s thing.

Unless shopping or leisurely lunching qualifies as sport, which, then in both cases, she’d be the reigning world champion.

So while her hubby is lounging around their McMansion, glued to the round-the-clock London Olympics coverage, the mum of three is busy watching the Michael Jackson family feud play out on the telly. Naturally.


The Bored Files: Hidetoshi Nakata


Retired Japanese footballer Hidetoshi Nakata’s was hardly impressed by the Olympics evening swimming events at the Aquatics Centre yesterday. We, however, can always crack a smile at the male swimmers and their wet bodies. Image: PacificCoastNews.com.

Harry Kewell: We’re Torn


Mr Kewell sat court side at The Manchester Evening News Arena during last night’s Great Britain v USA Mens basketball game.

The hair we hate, the smile we love.

For the first time ever, we’re not head over heels with the state of off-the-field Harry’s grooming and dress sense.

Is it us or is it him Kickettes?

Andy Carroll & Stacey Miller: Having A Blast In Brazil


Andy Carroll has reportedly been told by Liverpool FC that he is no longer part of their plans.

That”s ok, though. Having seen these pics of the big front man (ahem), we have spent the morning assembling our own plans for him.

And we can assure you, not one of those plans involves a body board or his girlfriend. Soz, Stace.
