The Best Man Beatdown: Alex Curran
It’s every bride’s not-so-secret fear: the best man’s speech at her wedding.
Let’s be more specific: the fear of the speech is largely based out of the possibility that someone will embarrass the crap out of you.
Or, even more specifically: fear of the potential drunken ramblings of someone with inside information who happens to be given a huge public platform, like at your wedding which is packed to the rafters with WAG wannabes, player haters and those who are texting the gossip columns every detail of your wedding shenanigans.
And by shenanigans, we mean the entire room being informed that you have breast implants.
So, after that long-winded introduction, we bring you the snap of the year, from Steven Gerrard’s mate, Boggo during the speeches at their wedding on June 16:
Jonathan “Boggo” Boggan praised the Liverpool ace’s successes, “none more so than when you got Alex’s jugs done”.
The gaffe stunned guests, especially the bride’s gran who did not know about the op.
But Boggo had Stevie, 27, and Alex, 24, in stitches on their big day at Cliveden House, Berks, by adding: “I wish you both the best in the world!”
Embarassing, yes? But not terribly scandalous, as Alex admitted in 2005 that she moved up from a B cup to a D cup, saying, “I did it to make me feel better, not for anyone else. Although I’m sure Steven doesn’t mind them!“
Even with her admission, if this happened to us, we’d be introducing Boggo to our friends, beat and down.
