It must have been a bad afternoon for Frank Lampard after seeing his team surrender a goal lead to plucky Blackburn Rovers and only take a single point from the game, as opposed to the three he expected. He was then harrassed by local Blackburn folk.
Lampard was emerging from Ewood Park with The One Show presenter Christine Bleakley, according to witnesses, when the harrassment broke out.
"It must have been pretty scary for them," a reporter from The London Evening Paper told us. "They were just walking to their car when they found they were surrounded by people wearing donkey jackets with ferrets in the pockets. And I've never seen so many whippets in my life. There were hundreds of them."
We were told that a grim-faced Lampard took Christine Bleakley out of The One Show - who he denies he's having a relationship with, at least he does to us - by the arm and guided her safely across the car park, which was crowded with local Blackburn folk, as they say oop north.
A witness told us that the Blackburn folk were smiling and laughing in an unnaturally upbeat manner, and speaking in a strange foreign language. According to some observers there were Blackburn folk wearing flat caps and mufflers and mumbling about mills.
It must have been a terrifying ordeal for Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley out of The One Show. Our sincere best wishes are extended to the couple and their families.
More as we get it.
