‘Who would do that?’ Zoe Lucker on Footballers’ Wives storyline that shocked her the most
Express.co.uk while discussing the series’ return to TV screens via BritBox, Zoe said: “I mean, I think, in terms of shock, I suppose, where she killed Frank, that was quite a shocking moment. “And I think, you know, the other thing was putting fake tan on a baby and baby swapping.” Zoe went on to admit that as a mum herself, she now finds that particular storyline even more worrying.The star is mum to her teenage daughter Lilly, who she shares with husband Jim Herbert.She continued: “Yeah, I think, obviously, especially now being a mum, putting fake tan on a baby and swapping it for someone else's baby for their own benefit is just so outrageous.“But within the confinement of that world, that was exactly what Tanya needed to do for her, so she just did it. “And I think that's why, you get the script and you think, ‘Oh my gosh, who would do that?’ “But then the character would definitely do it, because, you know, she would do what she had to do to get on in life, that's what she always did.“So, for her, that wasn't inappropriate, it was just what she needed to do at that particular point in her life.”Zoe also revealed she doesn’t know whether the series will be “appropriate in this day and age”.The actress said: “Something we've been thinking about is how that will translate now, you know, because back in the day, there was no social media and no streaming.“So it’s going to be interesting whether it still is appropriate in this day and age, for this generation, whether they’re going to love it and enjoy it as much as our generation did.“Because I think it did come at a very specific time, the whole wives and girlfriends thing, and everyone was really into the football and fascinated by the lives of footballers and their

Jeremy Clarkson slams ‘nimby’ neighbours for crushing his Diddly Squat 'restaurant dreams'
Clarkson’s Farm star Jeremy Clarkson has called out “assorted moaners” from the local area around Diddly Squat Farm after he was prevented from opening a restaurant there.The former Top Gear presenter wrote all about how his plans were unexpectedly foiled in his latest column for The Sunday Times. Jeremy, 61, had big dreams of opening a “small wood 'n' sawdust cafe” in his old lambing barn before his hopes were dashed by his local council. The famous farmer explained how he mistakenly thought getting permission to open the restaurant would be “a shoo-in”, but that his plans were in fact blown altogether by “assorted moaners and a man called Phil”.His ambitions to open a new restaurant on Diddly Squat Farm, which is located in West Oxfordshire, were dashed at the beginning of this week, much to Jeremy’s annoyance. On January 10, the Clarkson’s Farm host saw his plans decisively thrown out by the council, with seven out of 10 councillors condemning the scheme.The main point of contention appeared to be over what the restaurant could add to the community, including the creation of jobs and more opportunities for farmers to sell their produce, versus how it might disturb the area and surrounding environment. Councillors weighed in on the controversial plans soon after Jeremy delivered a speech explaining his application for the Chipping Norton restaurant. Plans to convert the lambing shed were savagely branded a “trojan horse” by a solicitor representing one couple named Mr and Mrs Dewar.Others argued that the restaurant could cause traffic issues, while Jeremy’s long-time pal Councillor Postan dismissed these claims on the basis that there were “no statistics to prove it".Some people raised concerns about how late the

Neil Robertson 'completely helpless' as he speaks out on wife's mental health struggles
Neil Robertson is currently competing against Barry Hawkins, 42, in the final of the Masters in London.The Australian has opened up in the past about the “really tough” time he’s had with snooker, as he has also been busy supporting his wife during her mental health struggles.In 2017, Neil admitted that his career in professional sports had been tricky to balance with issues at home, as his wife was battling anxiety and depression for several years.Remembering the last few years with Andy Goldstein on Eurosport’s vodcast in 2020, the snooker player revealed just how tough life had been at times for the couple.The issues they experienced reportedly saw him drop down to 20 in the world rankings and miss the Masters for the first time in 10 years.Speaking to Andy he said: “What Tyson Fury did a year or so ago when he did that documentary where he discussed his issues with mental health, his anxiety and depression… “Watching that, I felt as though I was watching Mille talk. He was talking about the exact same thing more or less,” Neil explained.“She wasn’t substance-abusing with drugs, but with anxiety one of the big things people do is drink alcohol to try and settle it down, and that is what Mille was doing, which was very tough for me to try and juggle that and try and be one of the best snooker players in the world.“For a few years, I was doing that without really talking about it.
