£1m for car is Vir­tual In­san­ity!

Cor­rie babe slammed for call­ing coun­try bor­ing

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

JAMIRO­QUAI singer Jay Kay has sold his beloved Maserati for more than £1mil­lion.

The stun­ning 1955 Maserati A6G/54 Frua Ber­linetta took pride of place at the Vir­tual In­san­ity star’s house.

But af­ter win­ning awards and com­pet­ing in vin­tage races, the mu­si­cian, 42, de­cided to part ways with the Ital­ian sports car.

He put it up for auc­tion at Good­ing & Co’s pres­ti­gious Peb­ble Beach event in Cal­i­for­nia and the ham­mer went down at £1,050,000 af­ter fren­zied bid­ding.

Jay said: “This Maserati has been one of my favourite cars.”

The Maserati – which was in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion – was one of 155 clas­sic sports cars sold by Good­ing & Co over the week­end.

To­tal sales reached a stag­ger­ing £72.7m – thrash­ing last year’s record fig­ure of £50m.

The high­est price re­ceived was £7.5m for a 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Spe­cial Road­ster, while a 1960 Fer­rari 250 GT LWB Cal­i­for­nia Spi­der Com­pe­tizione fetched £7.2m. HERE’s a bit of ad­vice, fel­las: If you are mar­ried to a 33-year-old teacher called Amanda, and live in Chorl­ton, Manch­ester, keep a close eye on her.

Ac­cord­ing to a dat­ing web­site, she’s the most likely to cheat on her hubby.

What you need to do to make sure she’s not tempted to stray is get fit, treat her well, and keep her busy in the bed­room with nice lin­gerie and finely-honed sex skills.

(No need to thank me, Mandy, I’d do it for any girl!) TELLY stunna He­len Flana­gan has out­raged football fans af­ter be­ing ac­cused of try­ing to get her soc­cer star boyfriend to move clubs – be­cause she’s “bored”.

Ex- Coro­na­tion Street babe He­len was yes­ter­day at the cen­tre of a storm af­ter her fella Scott Sin­clair was tipped to move from Swansea back near her friends in Manch­ester.

WAG He­len, 23, sparked the row af­ter tweet­ing: “Started to get bored now, been in Wales too long, must take ac­tion.”

But Swansea fans were fu­ri­ous as Sin­clair, 23, has re­fused to sign a new con­tract and is be­ing tipped to join Premier League champs Man City.

One user wrote to He­len: “You’re the rea­son he wants to leave to leave Swansea, he’ll go to Man City and his ca­reer will rot away.” An­other said: “Go back to Manch­ester then. I’m sure you can get Sin­clair a job on Cor­rie be­cause he ain’t go­ing to do much at Man City.”

He­len was born and lived in Manch­ester while star­ring as Rosie Web­ster in the north­ern soap.

And she again took to Twit­ter, this time to de­fend her­self.

She said: “My tweet was not meant to of­fend or be in­sen­si­tive. Some peo­ple need to chill out. I have al­ways loved Swansea.”
