Stunning Abbey Clancy has been voted Football’s Sexiest WAG. The blonde girlfriend of Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch beat Cheryl Cole who’s the wife of Crouch’s England team-mate Ashley Cole into second place.
Liverpool-born Abbey Clancy, 21, shot to fame when she began darting the 6ft 7in bean-pole England striker. Since then she has starred in TV program, Hell’s Kitchen, and has just finished shooting her own calendar.
Joe Cole’s gorgeous fitness instructor fiancee Carly Zucker, 26, was third, Elen Rives, Spanish-born fiancee of Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard was fourth. Melanie Slade, 18-year-old partner of Arsenal wonderkid Theo Walcott came fifth.
Sadly the poll won’t make pleasant reading for poor old Victoria Beckham, wife of LA Galaxy footballer, David Beckham. Self-proclaimed top WAG Posh Spice, 33, limped in towards the bottom of the league at number 17.
Carl Christensen (corr), MD at The People’s Club who conducted the survey of 3,000 football fans, said: “Abbey Clancy was a clear winner and it’s not hard to see why. She has just about everything that a young multi-millionaire footballer could want in a woman.”
“I guess the only question football fans might want answered is: why on earth is she with Peter Crouch?”
“It was good to see that a couple of down-to-earth WAGs like Melanie Slade and Carly Zucker, who are either juggling careers or working hard to get good qualifications, featured in the poll as well. It is little wonder so many girls aspire to being a WAG, and why so many boys aspire to being footballers if they know they could end up with someone as sexy as any of these WAGs.”
Outspoken Girls Aloud singer Cheryl, 24, married former Arsenal defender Ashley Cole last year.
Other stunners to make the top 20 include Wayne Rooney’s missus Coleen McLoughlin, 21, who was voted in at number six. Coleen has been at the side of Manchester United and England striker Wayne since he was first signed to Everton as a schoolboy.
Jermain Defoe might be out of favour at Spurs at the moment – but his fiancee certainly isn’t. Charlotte Mears, 25, made it in at number seven.
Alex Curran, 25, who married Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in the summer, is at number eight followed by former Emmerdale star and wife of Liverpool’s Aussie winger Harry Kewell, Sheree Murphy, 32.
The new wife of England and Chelsea skipper John Terry, Toni Poole, 24, completed the top ten.
Unfashionable Reading have a ‘representative’ in the shape of Big Brother wannabe Imogen Thomas, 24-year-old girlfriend of Royals defender Ibrahim Sonko.
And even fans of League One outfit Yeovil Town have something to shout about with WAGS Boutique beauty Jadine Bircham, 32, – wife of midfielder Marc – creeping in at number 13.
The fittest Championship WAG was named as Julie Phillips, 36, – wife of crocked West Bromwich Albion and England striker Kevin.
Mrs Beckham was sandwiched between two other WAGS who play for a club which lacks LA Galaxy-style glamour – Bristol City.
Singer Jamelia, 26, who is engaged to marry the Robins striker Darren Byfield and former Atomic Kitten star Liz McClarnon, also 26, lives with Byfield’s team-mate Lee Trundle.
Despite her hubby Jamie now concentrating on his career as a pundit Louise Redknapp, 33, crept in at number 20.
