Drunk footballer strikes blow for equality
Warning to all mums: Prepare to feel inadequate. That paragon of motherhood, Victoria Beckham, has been offering helpful tips on after-school snacks. Toasted seeds doused in a fancy version of soy sauce called Liquid Aminos is just perfect for those peckish weans. She even shared a picture of what looked like the bottom of a budgie cage. Yum. Bet they’re still so hungry that they rifle the crisps cupboard when she’s busy boasting on Instagram. Buckfast-flavoured sweeties. What bright spark came up with this idea? Here we are trying our best to turn around Scotland’s terrible record with alcohol by introducing a minimum pricing policy and issuing endless guidance on safe drinking limits. Meanwhile, big jars of sweets are being produced, flavoured like the notorious tonic wine. Genius. Let’s introduce our kids to the taste whileile they’re still too young to bevvy. Er, no. Let’s get back to soor plooms. The collapse of Monarch is devastating enough to its 860,000 customers, some 85 per cent of whom now face a refund battle. But it will ease their pain not a jot to learn airline boss Andrew Swaffield has set up a new firm. His new consultancy business was incorporated on the day the airline went into administration. It’s named Alcedo, after his polo team, if you don’t mind. Every man for himselff – and chief executives first. I’m loving Craig Revel Horwood’s makeover as ghastly Miss Hannigan in a stage production of the musical Annie. The 6ft 2in Strictly judge is remarkably convincing as a redhead with a vicious streak. Can’t think where he practised his nastiness… Craig says he’s not doing a drag queen act, he’s playing the part as a woman. We noticed. Is it me or is it quite annoying that he looks so darn good? He’s a quick roots dye-job away from leaving the Strictly judging panel to join Loose Women.

Plus, the player involved was a US Olympic gold medallist called Alex Morgan. And that’s Alex as in Alexandra.
Yes, the “rowdy” reveller was a member of Team USA ladies’ soccer squad. Witnesses say she yelled about knowing the Orlando SWAT team as she was escorted from the Disney pub.
Bet she’s feeling a bit Goofy now. Still, we can claim this episode as a blow for equality: The day women footballers got to behave as badly as male players.
