Ron’s potty for Corbyn
SNOOKER legend Ronnie O’Sullivan has backed Labour again and said people should give Jeremy Corbyn a break.
The five- times world champ said yesterday: “Jeremy Corbyn is a man of his word.
“He is unwavering in his beliefs whether he is criticised for them or not. I’d like to be his friend.”
Father-of-three Ronnie has backed a Labour leader before – once playing snooker with Ed Miliband on the campaign trail.
The 41-year-old star – engaged to actress Laila Rouass, 45 – also talked about his children, saying he doesn’t get to spend much time with them because of a difficult relationship with his ex-partner.
He added in a magazine interview: “I had them for a week once and I became so attached I broke down in tears at the end. I didn’t want to say goodbye.
“They came and cuddled me and I told them I would miss them. They know their dad loves them and I know they love me. I’m there for them no matter what.” A 35stone Aldabra tortoise called Darwin will celebrate his 100th birthday today with a party at Blackpool Zoo – his home since 1972.
