Laugh ‘Til He Cries

‘THERE’S no nice way of putting this, so we won’t try. Jamie Oliver spent 29 grand on a pair of David Beckham’s boots at the auction during Posh ‘n’ Becks’ World Cup party.

Poisoned by his own fish pie

He bought them as a good luck charm to hang on the wall of his new restaurant, but he couldn’t resist putting them on for a kick-about with his friends.

Then disaster struck. ‘I hit the ball on a volley,’ explains James, ‘and now I have the same thing as David.’

What, a silly voice and a terrible haircut? No, stupid: a damaged metatarsal.

‘Jamie still thinks the boots are great,’ says his agent. Then again, he thinks saying ‘pukka’ is great, and calling his baby Poppy Honey is great.

As that Oscar Wilde geezer said, you’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.
