Coleen On Me

by | 16th, December 2004

‘MOVE over, Victoria Beckham, there’s a new footballer’s wife who wants to be a singer.

‘In your dreams, Martin Fowler’

The Sun says that Wayne Rooney’s girlfriend, the tanned and highlighted Coleen McLoughlin, intends to make it big in the world of popular music.

In between shopping trips, Coleen has been taking singing lessons from voice coach Jennifer John and spending time at Liverpool’s Sense Of Sound studio.

‘She loves singing and has recorded some tracks,’ says a ‘pal’ of Coleen’s. ‘She has lots of time and money on her hands.’

But while Coleen warbles her cover version of ‘Maggie May’, the song that tells of a young boy caught up in the fading allure of an older woman, and ‘Big Spender’, the Sun has more news of tomorrow’s stars.

In a world where talent seems inextricably linked with how loud you can shout, the Sun says that EastEnders’ walking tree Michelle Ryan is to quit the soap for a career in…

Can you guess? Yes, those of us who have seen Ryan’s acting abilities also said ‘a sawmill’, ‘forestry’ and ‘DFS’, but the real answer is ‘Hollywood’.

And that’s not the Hollywood Bowl in Basildon, nor is it Hollywood in Worcestershire, but Hollywood in America, the one with the big hillside lettering and so much tinsel.

And if that’s not fanciful enough, a ‘source says that agents want to turn Michelle into the next Kiera Knightly’.

Says Ryan: ‘I’d love to do a Bond movie. Sometimes I’m mistaken for Liv Tyler.’

And it’s a likeness that could be Ryan’s route into the big time.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy, in which Tyler starred, featured many talking trees – and how novel it would be if one actually looked like the actress.’
