|PaddyPower.com has been busy delving into the private lives of the UK’s top footballing love stories to see which couple will be the first to break up in 2007.|
The marriage of David and Victoria Beckham is once again under the spotlight with the website offering 6/1 odds on them parting company early in 2007, however they are not, as one would expect, the overwhelming favourites.
That rather dubious honour belongs to England and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard Jr and his partner Ellen who are at 10/11 to be the first footballing casualty of the New Year. Following close behind is Lampard’s international colleague Peter Crouch, who’s relationship with girlfriend Abi isn’t expected to last too long into 2007.
In Crouch’s considerable shadow, comes Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and his girlfriend Alex, whose relationship is posted together with his former captain Beckham at 6/1, with Wayne Rooney and Coleen at 8/1 and newlyweds Ashley Cole and Cheryl Tweedy at 10/1.
