Theo Walcott has bought his WAG – the eminently likeable Melanie Slade – a Ferrari California supercar for her 21st birthday. For most of us, buying a Ferrari means saving up for several years. For Theo, it’s a couple of weeks’ wages.
A source close to Slade told the Sun: “Melanie is over the moon. She loves the car and has even got a personalised number plate for it. She was scared of driving it at first, but she took it for a spin in London to get rid of her nerves.”
Good call. Traffic-free London is exactly where I’d want to drive my new £140,000 supercar to get rid of my nerves. Gulp.
