ITALIAN giants Juventus have pulled off quite a signing – they’ve managed to arrange for Miss Italia 2004, Christina Chiabotto, to put pen to paper.
Sadly the Italian beauty queen, a long-standing Juve fan, won’t be lining up alongside the likes of Carlos Tevez and Andrea Pirlo for the Turin Serie A side next season however – she’s been brought in to front the club’s newly-launched JTV channel.
NEWCASTLE full back Danny Simpson says that his relationship with popstar Tulisa is giving him the X-Factor on the pitch.
The WAG – or should that be WAF – has given the footballer a love of life he hasn’t had this season, he says.
The player said: “The papers are the papers and they say what they want. But everybody around me knows the truth.
“Sometimes when all of that is going on around you, it is the best time to play football. You go on the pitch and you can forget about everything.
“If anything, in the last couple of games I have really enjoyed it. I feel like I am getting back to my old self from last season. I am pretty pleased with that.”
It’s a unique form of coaching, for sure, but still, Tulisa for QPR manager, anyone?
LAST night’s X-Factor threw up a shock in the form of Bianca Gascoigne.
Bianca, famous for her previous TV outing Celebrity Love Island as well as being the offspring of outrageously talented footballer and terrible comedian Paul Gascoigne, was auditioning for the TV talent show to break away from her public perception.
She said: “I’ve always been a singer, this is something that I’ve wanted to do and it’s been years and years I’ve thought this through to do it and now I’m here I’m just like ‘oh my god!”
But singing Mary J Blige’s I’m Going Down, she failed to make the cut and left with four ‘no’ votes from the panel.
Gary Barlow said: “In general it was a bit of a mediocre audition.”
And Rita Ora said: “I just think we’ve seen better singers.”
MANCHESTER City look dead set to snaffle up yet more young homegrown talent in the form of Swansea City’s Scott SInclair – as his other half is “bored” of Wales.
The winger, who scored in the 5-0 Swans win on the opening day, looks likely to move to Manchester rather than sign a new contract.
The Welsh club’s first-team coach Alan Curtis admitted yesterday: “He’s not really interested in signing a new contract and I think Man City have made a bid.
“So it’s just a matter of time now before it happens and it’s good for both parties.”
However the surest confirmation yet has to come from Helen Flanagan AKA Rosie from Coronation Street, who is Sinclair’s partner.
She tweeted: “Started to get bored now, been in Wales too long, Lol.
“Must take action.”
Actress, model, and football agent.
WOLVES WAG Danielle Lloyd’s dream of “nicer boobs” for her wedding to Jamie O’Hara went bust – after her breasts exploded.
The model had her first boob job seven years ago, and decided to go under the knife again ahead of her wedding to the midfielder.
But the operation left her breasts swelling out of control, until one day she woke up to find one had burst due to the new mum producing milk under the implants.
She said: “I was terrified. I lost over a litre of blood.
“Afterwards I needed an emergency blood transfusion because I had half the haemoglobin level of a normal person. I was in hospital for five days.”
The problems continued and a second operation was needed.
But despite the ordeal, the wedding is still set to go ahead in May. Danielle said: “The wedding is happening – with or without boobs”
THE coveted Foxy Bingo Mum Of The Year award has shortlisted a large WAG contingent for 2012.
Among those up this year for the title, previously won by the maternal likes of Stacey Solomon and Jordan, are Abbey Clancy, Danielle Lloyd, Nicola McLean, Victoria Beckham, and, er, Natasha Giggs, if she counts as a WAG.
I’ll ask my lawyers.
Anyway, fingers crossed for a WAG winner – it’ll be another poor excuse for posting a nice photo.
FIREFIGHTERS were called out to Emile Heskey’s home after his other half, Chantelle Tagoe, set the kitchen alight.
The WAG – a former Come Dine With Me contestant, no less – set a roast pork joint alight while practising ahead of preparing the Aston Villa man’s Christmas dinner.
She tweeted: “OMG set the fire alarm off + almost burnt me pork! Smoke evrywer! SHAAAME the firemen av turned up.”
Followed shortly by: “At least I no me fire alarm works! Me mum was made up with all the hunky firemen in me kitchen! hahaha.”
DON’T mess with Roberto Mancini’s missus!
The wife of Manchester City’s manager Federica Mancini single-handedly chased off a trio of masked gem thieves from the couple’s luxury island villa in Sardinia.
The WAG confronted three men believed to be part of a gang who have knocked out a string of previous victims with sleeping gas – hitting an emergency alarm after hearing them break through a door before shouting at them.
The gang fled empty-handed.
CROATIAN WAG Nives Celsius – famous for having sex with her husband Dino Drpic in the centre circle of a stadium in Zagreb after an international match with England – is set to turn the tables and take part in a men’s football match.
The raunchy model has been added to the Slaven Belupo squad taking on Zagreb FC in a pre-season friendly tomorrow.
And although Celsius – who earlier this year released a single talking about her fantasies of romping with famous footballers like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – is starting on the bench, it has been promised she will come on as a sub.
Nives Celsius – making strides for women’s equality. There’s a sentance I never thought I’d write.
WAG Victoria Beckham has given birth to a baby girl – the first daughter for the former Spice Girl and her footballing husband David.
The baby, named Harper Seven, was delivered yesterday at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.
In a statement on his Facebook page, England footballer Beckham said: “I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham.
“She weighed a healthy 7lbs 10oz and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA. Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister xx
The Beckhams, who married in 1999, already have three boys – Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five.
