Glamour Tie

‘THIS may turn out to be the smuttiest series of I’m A Celebrity so far, but it will surely not be the best unless last year’s star John Fashanu is airlifted back into the bush.

“People ask: ‘What can John Fashanu bring to Northampton?’” he once said during a failed bid to buy Northampton Town football club. “In a word, glamour.”

And glamour he could have again brought to the jungle, as well as providing the viewing public with an opportunity once again to vote for him to undertake every single Bushtucker Trial.

[Not, we hasten to point out, because we think the ex-Wimbledon striker is a vain and deluded berk of the highest order, but because he has star quality and we want to see him on our screens every minute of the day.]

That is why so many people tuned in to cable channel Bravo last night to watch a charity football game hosted by Fash.

It was nothing to do with the fact that the game marked John Leslie’s first scheduled appearance in front of the cameras since his spectacular fall from grace.

All the papers were there to see the Scot do his country’s goalkeeping tradition proud by letting in five goals before being substituted.

And the Mirror particularly enjoys the interview by Caroline Flack who asked Leslie: “Have you played in front of the cameras?” and “You’re in goal…I hear you’re good with your hands.”

The Sun also reports that “sex-shame blonde” Abi Titmuss, who was at the game to support her boyfriend, is to be quizzed by police after admitting buying cocaine for Leslie and a friend.

Of Fash, however, there is no mention at all – a journalistic oversight, which John Fashanu can only attribute to the hacks being too star-struck to approach John Fashanu for an interview.’
