England boss Steve McClaren is celebrating his first victory as new team boss. England trounced Greece 4-0, with goals by newly appointed captain, John Terry, Frank Lampard (hope he’s exorcised those World Cup demons), and Peter Crouch (goals 2, cocaine snorting breast-flashing, unfaithful girlfriends – 0). John Terry says that David Beckham sent him a text message wishing him good luck, and that it was a dream come true to have a result like that.

Colleen McLoughlin has revealed her top fashion tips for the new season:

Victoria Beckham’s Burberry wrist-slap


Burberry Creative Director, Christopher Bailey, is rumoured to have been given a talking to after spending paparazzi face-time hanging out with Victoria Beckham recently.

It’s said that the label has worked very hard recently to rid itself of the dreaded “chav” images associated with Burberry since every tracksuit-wearing, sovereign ring rocking gel-head began sporting their hats, scarves and jackets.  The damage the WAGs did at the World Cup continues to rock the fashion world – many labels are straight up freaking out if a footballers’ wife touches their stuff and gets photographed with it.

Mrs B isn’t seen to be the “right” sort of woman to be wearing their clothes.

On skinny jeans: “The problem with skinny jeans is if you wear them with flat shoes, like flip-flops or trainers, you end up looking like a golf club.“

On knickers and lingerie: “I hate those silly lacy bras with all those bits poking out beneath your top. You end up looking like you have four breasts.“

On wearing wedge heels: “Some wedges are great but you can look like your feet are encased in cement.“
