The pub full of Rooneys

All this week I’m putting a different favourite TV report on my site each day. It’s a sort of advent calendar without the chocolate.

This year, being a World Cup year, I did a lot of quirky football reports for the BBC.

I had a drink in a pub where all the bar staff were called Wayne Rooney.

The only one not called Rooney was the manager, who despite being a woman had changed her name by deed poll to Fabio Capello.

I love the shot of all the Rooneys sat in a line all claiming to be Rooney in a scene reminiscent of Spartacus.

The face of David Beckham on a melon

A man has been carving the heads of footballers onto melons, in support of the England team at the World Cup.

Come with me as I visit the studio of the melon artist.

Watch out for my impressions of Steven Gerrard, Rio Ferdinand and David Beckham.
