Woody fills his boots - allegedly

Last updated : 07 September 2003 By Martyn Elliott

The Sunday Mirror claims that Woody is having a fling with Big Brother beauty Kate Lawler and enjoyed “a marathon 14-hour love-in” at the £500-a-night Sanderson Hotel in Soho on Friday.

No way of knowing if there is any truth in it, but it’s good to see that one of our players' off-field activities have made the tabloids for what he must think are the right reasons!

Using top-quality investigative journalism, the paper quotes an anonymous friend as saying: “They share a lot of interests. Kate’s always been into watching football and they both like going clubbing. You can tell they’re really well suited, Kate loves calling Jonathan by his nickname, Mudball.

“You don’t think of Jonathan Woodgate as being the kind of guy who goes in for that sort of stuff.

“She thinks he is really sexy. Even though he gets a lot of stick from his mates, who call him Big Ears, Kate thinks he’s the most gorgeous thing she’s ever seen.

“Jonathan has always attracted a lot of female interest, and it’s fair to say he’s a bit of a ladies man.

“But he’s actually a very shy person. He is quietly spoken and really buzzes off the fact that Kate is so gregarious.”

And they say romance is dead. But anyway, well in Woody!

Or should that be, well in Mudball!
