World Cup: Wag watch

While England's band of stars were busy being humiliated by Germany, their WAGs were out in force.

Frank Lampard's girlfriend, Christine Bleakley, and John Terry's wife Toni Poole both arrived in South Africa and were at the game yesterday to support their partners.

Bleakley recently announced her departure from the BBC to join Adrian Chiles as the face of morning television. She posed for pictures with fans at the game, but will have been disappointed that her boyfriend had a legitimate goal overlooked.

Chantelle Tagoe, Emile Heskey's partner, was also in Bloemfontein, visiting the "Cheetah Experience", a sanctuary for the endangered species.

Back home, Coleen Rooney took her mind off Wayne's woes with a trip to Chester racecourse after deciding to stay at home with son Kai. Also back in Britain is Steven Gerrard's wife Alex Curran, while Peter Crouch's fiancée, Abby Clancy, is currently working the crowds on ITV's World Cup Live.
