Better Late Than Never

‘KATE LAWLER graces the pages of OK! this week, and the Big Brother winner’s chosen venue for the photo-shoot is Highbury, home of Arsenal Football Club, the great love of Kate’s life.

Arsene – just a minor figure at Highbury

But she reveals that there is no Gooner tradition in her South London family. ”My dad’s Charlton, my twin’s Millwall, my mum’s Crystal Palace, my sister’s Millwall and my brother’s Tottenham,” she explains.

Kate started supporting Arsenal because a friend of hers did. ”And we loved Ian Wright!” she enthuses. And Ian visited the Big Brother house while Kate was incarcerated there during the summer, greeting her through the one-way mirror.

The Arsenal talk continues for a while, but eventually, like all good things, it has to come to an end. And when it does, Kate remarks casually that she hasn’t been to see the Gunners for a while.

How long’s that, then? ”I haven’t seen a match since Arsene Wenger’s been in charge,” she says.

Oh well, not to worry, Kate. You haven’t missed much.
