Alice: Wimpy stars will see punk re­turn

THIS WEEK IT’S... SHOW & TELL

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By ISO­BEL DICKINSON

BIG-BOOBED Ruth HIgham is enough to drive you nuts!

The Bolton babe was an in­stant suc­cess when she first peeled off her top for her first glamour shoot in 1998.

And she was a reg­u­lar on the pages of news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines un­til she re­tired in 2004.

But she be­came mega-fa­mous thanks to her time as the Big D nuts girl, where she was seen by mil­lions of Brits as her fig­ure was dis­played in pubs up and down the land.

Thanks to her, sales soared 37 per cent as pun­ters bought ex­tra pack­ets of nuts to glimpse more and more of her bikini-clad body.

The stun­ning blonde, born in 1978, also starred in a British Tele­com ad­vert with Top Gear’s Jeremy Clark­son and in 2003 she ap­peared on ITV’s Blind Date – where she was amaz­ingly the first girl to be re­jected.

She was also seen on screen in the Sky One’s Mile High and BBC1 drama Mur­phy’s Law with James Nes­bitt. VET­ERAN rocker Alice Cooper has slammed to­day’s rock’n’roll stars for be­ing BLAND and WIMPY.

The leg­endary hell-raiser, real name Vin­cent Furnier, said: “In our day bands were much more cre­ative. To­day’s bands have lost their bite. Bands no longer have that swag­ger. They don’t have that rock’n’roll punk at­ti­tude they used to have.

“Rock’n’roll is sup­posed to be played from the crotch not the brain.”

And the 64-year-old reck­ons the iden­ti­cal acts pro­duced by shows like X Fac­tor could see a new re­vival of old­school punk rock­ers.

He added: “I want to see a re­bel­lion to all this wimpy rock. I know there are some 17-year-olds in a garage some­where play­ing The Who. You’ll see a whole new surge of bands.”

He added that re­al­ity con­tes­tants were only good enough to be­come cruise ship singers.

CHEST SO TASTY! Ruth gave Big D nuts a huge sales boost
