Buy Another Day

‘WE have yet to get Darren Day a wedding gift and, it follows, an anniversary present of any kind.

What do you buy a girl who’s already got Darren Day?

Many is the time we’ve gone back to Mr Byrite, clutching our receipt for some must-have item, ready to ask for our money back as another Day wedding is called off.

To date, we have bought Darren: a cuddly chimpanzee, a Trivial Pursuit board game, a signed copy of Cliff Richard’s Living Doll and a one-way ticket to Lagos.

But each time, the wedding plans have been cancelled and we’ve been forced to go back to seek a refund.

But there may be no need ever to buy Darren a gift. Although Darren’s girlfriend, the former of Hear’Say band member Suzanne Shaw, is pregnant, there will be no engagement.

‘I have never owned a house with a girlfriend before,’ says Darren, who shares the deeds on his pad with Shaw. ‘We’ve got a dog together, and now a baby on the way, so I think we have already made a fairly serious commitment to each other.’

Suzanne agrees, sort of.

‘We’ve both been engaged before and have done that so I think we will just go off and get married quietly,’ she says.

‘But I’ll wait till after the baby is born as I don’t want to be a fat bride!’

Does that not sound like she is planning a wedding after all? Which means yet another trip to the shops of us and the hunt for inspiration.

We mean, just what do you buy the couple you’ve bought everything for and then taken it back to the shops already?

A his ‘n’ hers boomerang?’
