Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet


Fernando Torres, the man that put the “phroar” in freckles, turned 26 this weekend. In honour of the sexy Spaniard’s big day, let’s all take a moment to reflect on what colour highlights we prefer with our Nando. We call these, “sunshine dreams”.  Happy birthday, Fern, and here’s wishing you a fantabulous year full of good hair days and epic bitchfaces. Nub nu!

- Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs gave an interview to NOTW about his behind-the-scenes preferences to media attention when he’s off the pitch. Commendable. But sad, really. We reckon he’s got at least a few shirtless calendar shots left in the tank. Think of the fans, Giggsy!

- Most of you have probably seen the brilliant James Corden skit that aired during the Sports Relief charity event, but just in case, here’s the full length version for your giggling pleasure.

- Miguel Torres and Cristina Pedroche have gone from “could it be?” to “the way their lips are touching may indicate a relationship of sorts.” Back to black clothing we go.


- Alex Gerrard was spotted buying (and very openly carrying) a jar of sea kelp diet pills. We’re sure the Shake Weight folks will love this.

- Cheryl Cole’s PR reps were able to push aside the will she/won’t she divorce chit chat to bring us the news that she’s been voted the Most Inspirational Woman of the Decade… by a “leading cosmetic treatment review site”.

- Christine Bleakley says she’s not going to South Africa for the World Cup because she doesn’t want to be classed as a WAG. As you were.

    nando looks like a soccer mum here

  2. Emily says:

    Nandito easily out-scores TorstenF. on my scorecard. He would be a more than adequate replacement.

  3. HJ says:

    ok, somewhat irrelevant but still about the Nando: sometime before he made his move to Liverpool, he and Olalla called it off(I think they were engaged at that time too). Why did they break up????I’m dying to know!!

  4. Mayita says:

    what an interview Giggs *bow*

  5. aps says:

    Happy Belated NANDO! LOVE YA!

  6. Mrs.Roni says:

    Happy b’day Nanditoo :)
    Great man, Great Footballer , Great father , Great stiker , Great Great Greatttttt and Hootttt , sexy , sweet , hair perfectooo , cuteee… :D
    me encante ^.^

  7. BTW, Nando still looks like a teenager, I wonder what he will look like when he's 40 lol

  8. Erin says:

    Beautiful Fernando. Always Finest Five for me. Happy Belated birthday!

  9. Dominique says:

    I love this guy but i'll love him more if he come's to realmadrid.

    • amanda says:

      he never go to real.never ever.because he hate real

      • Trisha (Mrs Iker Cas says:

        Amanda, u know i heard that before. When his baby was born and they interviewed him he said he would prefer to support athletico madrid rather than RM.

        I wonder why though because its not like the galatico or money issue with RM should bother him because he has the same with Liverpool so he cant really point fingers. I wonder why he feels so strongly about that.

        I mean its the same city!

        • senora ramos says:

          he played for atleti. that's the biggest reason. i mean, they are HUGE rivals! can't wait for the derby this weekend. i think it was also him that complained about how much spanish teams pay for galaticos and how underpaid spainish players are in comparison (which may have been cesc, but am pretty sure was nando's comment)

  10. julia says:

    happy birthday gorgeous :)

  11. Baby Freya says:

    Anyone else realise the absence of a wedding band?

    • jpod says:

      I believe he wears his on his right hand not the left as we do. I had a friend who was a spanish exchange student & she got married right after school & visited & she & her husband wore their rings on their right hand as is their custom she said.

    • Spanish people don’t normally wear their wedding bands. My parents have been married for more than 25 yrs and neither of them wears it. Some people even opt for wearing the ring with a chain gold around their necks, as they don’t feel comfortable wearing rings.

  12. sounderslove says:

    Fernando to replace Miguel on the F5? Never really saw the Miguel appeal to be perfectly honest…and you’d still have a Torres on the list :P

  13. Keyla says:

    btw, nando should buy some new clothes!! i see him with the same shirt in every photo! :s

  14. Keyla says:

    *sigh*!! i love hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim!! more than olalla do,.LOL! and yes i love his freckles and everything that involves him :) :)! wish i could meet him *sigh*

  15. Happy birthday Nando. Please stay with Liverpool. Pretty please.

  16. imhereforthenando says:

    I had a Nano Birthday Party on Saturday, where I read excerpts from his autobiography, wore my jersey, and drank Torres wine. I’m not sure why I still have anyone to live with.

    • Molly says:

      Aww cute!!! Where was my invite?? (lol just kidding). But why didn't I think of that?

      • imhereforthenando says:

        Wouldn't it be amazing if Kickettes around the world could get together to celebrate things like Fernando's birthday, World Cup, or that day that we all found out that Canna's package had to be shrunk? Neither the bars nor the shoe stores would ever be the same again.

        And by the way, I meant Nando. Man, I'm tired.

  17. Liz says:

    Miguel :( that’s ruined my day

  18. MrsNesta says:

    Happy B Day Nando xxxx

    Smithy is a legend :)

  19. Mayita says:

    Happy one,Fer :D
    and there goes another top5 man,migi :(

  20. Allie says:

    Does Nando dye his hair?

  21. Merel says:

    Happy birthday Nando!

    But seriously, Christine needs to shut up. If she does not want to be seen as a WAG, why the hell bring it up again and again?
    I might start to believe she does want to be one.

    Oh yeah, she and Melanie can totally be normal and unhappy with their status together. Cry cry.

  22. Giggsy is the Man. It was lovely to see him back on Sunday sans cast.

  23. Ella says:

    Oh shut UP, bleakley! Puhleeeez. I guess she and melanie slade can hang out and start their own ludicrous non-wag club.

    • Molly says:

      Lol so true!!! I can just see the two of them PRETENDING not to be wags together lol.

  24. Linda (Gooner till I says:

    Ooooh Fernandoooo :) He's such a beauty.

    Alex looks as orange as always.

    As for Christine Bleakley… gosh… how can one woman be so annoying? You are a WAG, baby. Deal with it.

  25. Anya says:

    Alex had botox?

    Her face looks puffed up.

    That Smithy with Becks thing is hilarious.

  26. tammyv says:

    Umm Chrissy… yeah, Lamps already told the world you were not invited. There is no face to save at this point, but nice try

    And again, it is tacky, passive-agressive, stupid to attack the mother of your new boyfriends beloved children. She can make your life miserable as she holds the cards.

  27. Molly says:

    Happy 26th birthday Nando. He should be put into the F5 as a birthday present!!! :)

    • ElNino9 says:

      Ooh what a good idea! It’s not like he doesn’t deserve it! Those freckles…that hair…the sexy shirt… :)

  28. senora ramos says:

    aww nando, another cutie spanish march baby!! march babies really are awesome!

    this bleakly chick sucks, btw
