Hello? Is it OK You’re Looking For?



Take warning, fellow Kickettes.  When the time comes to book a wedding singer, choose carefully.

At Toni Poole and John Terry’s wedding this weekend, Lionel Richie was the guest of honour, paid nearly £250,000 to perform at the reception.

After being heckled by the crowd – who by this point were stonking drunk – Richie had to ask everyone to pipe down so he could finish his set. Toni Poole looked on in horror – obviously by now she knows what footie boys are like, especially considering John Terry’s penchant for gambling and alleged affairs. It’s said that she was very “anxious” when Mr. R was on stage.

The Sun newspaper reports:

“It was really embarrassing. Toni was looking very anxious about the lads making a real fool of her. When he started singing Hello the boys started chanting back to him as if they were on the football ground terraces. They had downed so much champagne at the reception the guests became really lairy and started shouting over his set.”

Things got worse for poor Toni and her stress levels when Lionel made a joke at the start of his set, saying, “I had better open the show with Hello since it is going to be in that magazine next week.” Er, no, smart guy, it’s OK! Magazine actually. Why don’t you stick to the singing and spritzing the Jheri curl, and leave the jokes to us.

Congratulations: Frank Lampard & Elen Rives



Less than 24 hours after Frank Lampard celebrated Chelsea’s victory over Man U in the FA Cup, his girlfriend Elen Rives gave birth to their second child, Isla.

Isla was delivered by C-section at 1.52 on Sunday and weighs 6 lbs 8oz.

Reports say that Elen went into labour after a night out with Frank and the crew to celebrate the Chelsea win on Saturday – Elen stayed out until just before midnight. 

Did Isla decide to come early to celebrate with her pops, or was it the common “MILB” scenario? Or, did Elen read our post on Friday and give in to the gods of labour?  You decide.

Congratulations, it’s a wonderful time to be the Lamps right now: a new dad, the FA cup, and the winner of Round one of the Thigh-Off.  Live the dream, Frank.  Live the dream.
