Bri­tain’s No.1 show­biz col­umn

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

THE panto season will soon be upon us – and guess who will be play­ing BUTTONS at THE NEXUS ART CENTRE in Daven­ham? Only GE­OFF HOOP! The former JATTERS bad boy, who fa­mously jumped off TOWER BRIDGE while ex­per­i­ment­ing with le­gal highs and diesel, may not be the first choice for a top role in a kids’ pan­tomime – but there’s a rea­son…

“I need the money”, he said. PRETTY Hat­tie Ross of JUDDER has un­der­gone a bit of a change of im­age after join­ing the youth group of her epis­co­pal church in Ch­ester. Hat­tie, once known at the “Pre-teen wild child of Christle­ton”, has taken her gui­tar skills to the church and led the con­gre­ga­tion in a cho­rus of Kum-by-Yah. The lat­est news is that she’ll front the har­vest fes­ti­val. Quite a difference from the Hat­tie who did that stunt with a mar­row in posh eatery L’ENODDER! WHO was spot­ted throw­ing some curves at TOE JAM, the final nish- hop fes­ti­val of the year? YUM KEARSLEY, of teen drama LOWER MID­DLE.

Yum, who joined the soap last year after 10 years play­ing DUGGIE in TORN AV­ENUE, had been in re­hab after that business at Stret­ton.

He looked back on top form, chat­ting with fans and sip­ping Tizer. Just a pity he ap­peared to have soiled him­self. BABS FINDUS, half of techno-dub- host duo SPLIT, has been lined up to this year’s BOPPS AWARDS after first-choice host, LENNY BATT, dropped out for “per­sonal rea­sons”. While Babs is glad of the gig – her was last pre­sent­ing job at THE NIDDS a dis­as­ter – it’s bad news for Lenny, who needs cash after his split from DAR­LING HOOFE. I’m told that the “per­sonal rea­sons” in­volve an egg whisk and a Ger­man Shep­herd. Let’s hope those pho­tos don’t end up in the next leak of celebrity sex pho­tos… AN­OTHER dis­ap­point­ment for GRETTY INCE in her bid to be­come the first wo­man to push a wheel­bar­row from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Gretty, pre­sen­ter of kids’ ad­ven­ture show DON’T TELL YOUR PAR­ENTS, is do­ing the stunt to raise money for the crit­i­cal­lyen­dan­gered Wo­gan Vole. But after three punc­tures be­fore even get­ting out of Corn­wall, Gretty’s lost a han­dle out­side Bris­tol.
