Ron’s potty for Cor­byn

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & - By Karen Rock­ett

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.
