Several days ago it was revealed that footballer Jermain Defoe and his mother Sandra St Helen had won the right to build a £4.5 million mansion out in leafy Essex, and also won the right to build a nightclub in the basement, a hair salon, card rooms, an underground swimming pool and a giant outdoor hot tub.
Many of you are still shaking your heads in disbelief and laughing.
Anyway today a friend reminded me about the TV footage below filmed last year during the 2010 World Cup. Jermain managed to score a last-minute goal for England and the following day the now defunct morning breakfast show GMTV paid Jermain’s family a visit. GMTV were behaving as if the England team (a bunch of over paid waste men) had actually won the World Cup and Jermain had scored the winning goal.
Anyway I still find this interview highly amusing.
Also check out ridiculous Jermain with his former “fiance” on the TV show A Million Pound Place In The Sun. Two weeks after this show aired they split up.
