‘WITH Posh and Becks’ marriage moving in the same direction as her singing career, it’s good to see that one other celebrity couple are going great guns.

‘This shandy don’t ‘alf taste funny’

The Sun brings news of Madonna and Mrs Madonna, aka Guy Ritchie, and how the singer threw a party for the Cockney geezer’s 36th birthday.

No swanky champagne do for Guy, though, or bubbly jubbly, as he’d doubtless call it. Just an honest-to-goodness bash in a pub room, which ‘er indoors had hired for 30 nicker.

The Punchbowl in London’s Cockney haven of East Mayfair was just the ticket for Guy to let his hair dahn, roll aht the barrel and have a crackin’ knees-up with some of his old chinas and a two-piece Irish band.

There was Madonna, singing her little ‘eart aht, dressed in baggy jeans, a flat cap and “hardly any make-up”, knocking back ‘alf pints of real ale, while ‘er Guy drank Guinness.

“He stayed on until 3:30 and was in a right old state,” says a mate of his, “telling all his pals how much he loved them and singing at the top of his voice.”

It sounds like a great laugh, and if anyone wants to hire the pub for their own themed marriage, we have learnt that it’s available for birthday parties, weddings and Kabbalah-styled Bar Mitzvahs.

Drinks and red bracelets can be supplied, but you’ll have to bring your own genuine Cockneys…’
