It’s one of those days where every news story we read annoys the crap out of us. Or, perhaps we’re just very hungover. Regardless, it can only mean one thing: a lazy link day. Enjoy the randomness.
Peter Crouch was spotted coming to collect a very drunk Abigail Clancy from the BabyCream bar in Liverpool. Abi’s on the cover of this month’s Arena.
Charlton’s Marcus Bent is getting slayed on a regular basis by his team-mates after Danielle Lloyd revealed they were dating. He’s getting the whole sloppy seconds, Teddy Sherringham’s “cast off” wind up. He’s not happy about it and has let Dani know as much.
Victoria Beckham has been babysitting lambs for celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey. The story has it that Ramsey asked her to give the lambs a nice space to roam on the Beckham’s country estate in Hertfordshire, and she agreed. What Victoria didn’t know was that Ramsey plans on slaughtering the lambs to use for meat in his one of his reality TV episodes of The F Word. The Mirror is reporting that Victoria will be horrified as she is a staunch vegetarian and anti-fur individual. We’re sure we’ve seen stories about Victoria existing on a diet of lettuce and sashimi, so not sure if fish no longer qualifies as an animal or what, but Lord knows we sure can’t be bothered to research that. Victoria’s rep said: She was more than happy to let the sheep roam around her grounds but, as a devout vegetarian, she will be distraught to learn that they’re going to be killed.“

Popbitch has an interesting blind item about a footballer who hasn’t playing much this season… on the pitch, anyway.
“This footballer hasn’t seen much action on the football pitch this season but hasn’t missed out in his private life. Over Easter he was closely cuddled up to a beautiful brunette in a South London wine bar, with girlfriend and baby tucked up safely at home.“

A source says the words, Pray For Me, on David’s right wrist is about the LA move.
“It’s how he feels about the massive move from being an English boy through and through, who has represented his country for many years and is now turning his back on England to embrace America – the move was never an easy decision and it wasn’t really David’s, it was Victoria’s from day one. The tattoo is not something Victoria wanted him to go ahead with as she felt it would not be a good start to their time in LA, but David was adamant that he would show his true feelings about the move and stop covering it up, even if it is rather cryptic.“
