Furious Frank’s own goal
I’VE heard of celebrity couples staggering their arrival at events, but rarely do they leave separately as it hints at disharmony. But former England footballer Frank Lampard had no such qualms about storming away from the Nextsponsored Glamour Awards without his wife Christine Bleakley.
The pair had posed on the red carpet, right, but later a stern-looking Frank was seen leaving the West London bash in a hurry while pal Dan Baldwin tried to pull him back, as my picture shows. Christine and Dan’s wife, This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, left in a taxi, setting tongues wagging about a possible falling out.
However, Frank’s spokesman stressed that all was well in the Lampard household that night. Still, I’d say rushing off in an ungentlemanly fashion is a bit of an own goal, Frank.
