A lot of celebrities (though I wouldn't call her a celebrity) do stuff for charity. Many of which just don't see the need to tell everybody ..

I always think he comes across as brighter and more switched-on than the average footballer so I have no doubt it'll be interesting.

Charity or not, some of the abuse she gets is ridiculous. Just because she chooses to publicise it, why does she deserve to have all kinds of vitriol and abuse handed to her?

I dunno, I'm not justifying it. She's irrelevant to me but I guess people like to criticise others publicly.

This is during the international break.

He's knocked his England career on the head to do this???

 

Or they've realised he's now bookable because he's got some free time now...

I know, it’s weird criticising someone for doing good stuff, even if they boast about it (not saying she does). it’s infinitely better than doing nothing which 80% of us do.

All due respect, what has she got to talk about on the same stage that has hosted world greats?
