Where There’s A Will…

by | 18th, August 2004

‘PARENTS tell their children a lot of lies – that Father Christmas exists, that we are nearly there yet and that Dad and Mrs Adamson really were looking for a dropped contact lens when you walked in on them.

Anything’s possible if you put your mind to it. Even this.

But surely the biggest fib that adults insist on trotting out to their progeny is that you can be – or do – anything if you really put your mind to it.

What a crock of shit! It doesn’t matter how hard you try, if you’re only 5ft 2in tall, you’re not going to have a career in the NBA.

Unless you have the God-given ability to spout mindless drivel for hours on end and still think you’re amusing, you ain’t going to become a radio DJ.

And unless you’ve got breasts the size of beachballs, you’re not going to be the new Jordan. Sad it may be, but it’s true. Deal with it, junior.

However, it is true that anyone can become former Hollyoaks star and Celebrity Fame Academy winner Will Mellor if they put their mind to it.

It helps of course to have a head-start if you are to emulate the 28-year-old who can also put shows like Casualty and Night Fever on his CV.

And no-one has more of a head-start than Will’s baby son, Jayden – not only has Jayden got his dad’s genes, but he’s also got his dad’s name – Jayden Will Mellor.

No wonder Will has got such high hopes for the young tyke.

‘Being streetwise feels very important,’ the multi-talented Mellor tells Hello! ‘Being good at school less so. I was a terrible pupil and lucky to stay in school.’

So, Lesson 1 to any kids wanting to follow in Will’s footsteps – get kicked out of school.

As for Lesson 2…

‘I want him, above all, to go for his dreams and recognise that anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it.’

Including if he’s really lucky a role alongside his dad in that seminal drama, Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps…’
