Room for one over the top
BOOKMAKERS Paddy Power found itself in hot water last week when it broadcast an ad calling for Cheltenham Ladies Day “chavs” to be SHOT.
The Irish bookies pledge to “take care of the chavs – veterinary style” came just a week after its Ladies Day advert was pulled from TV.
In the 40-second promo, an expressionless hitman floors loutish men and women with a tranquiliser gun.
But as these pictures clearly show, there’s nothing wrong with girls in skimpy outfits at the races.
Ladies Days at Aintree, Ascot and Cheltenham have become more colourful over the last few years.
Instead of toffs taking over – especially at Royal Ascot – all eyes have been on the everyday working class girls and boys who turn the races into one long party.
When its Ladies Day advert was suspended from TV last week, Paddy Power said on their website: “Shockingly, our last TV ad has been banned after just four days.
“That’s some kind of record, even for us.”
On the chav tranquiliser advert, which is not intended for TV, the blog added: “We never really expected to get past the regulators.”
Gemma Porter, 29, and pal Louise Van-marle, 21, became firm favourites with racegoers on the first day of the world’s most famous steeplechase at The Grand National Festival last year.
The pair dodged stewards to gain access to the track, stripping off to bare all to thousands of delighted onlookers.
Both girls were arrested by Merseyside Police and each fined £80 for breaking a public order offence.
But that didn’t stop the gorgeous pair stripping off for an EXCLUSIVE Sport photoshoot! A BUS driver ordered all his passengers off after a woman spilt some coffee.
Ten passengers were travelling on the Bournemouth service when their journeys were cut short.
A woman buying a ticket accidentally spilt a small amount of her hot drink – and all passengers were told to exit the vehicle immediately.
The driver is said to have declared the small spillage “dangerous” – and had to be mopped up by specialist cleaners from his depot.
Passenger Robert Readman, 71, said: “The bus driver said it was for health and safety reasons.
“He shut the doors, pulled the bus to the kerb, ordered everybody off, and phoned to somebody at the depot to come and clean it.”
Bus firm Wilts and Dorset are investigating.
