Tottenham striker Peter Crouch may often get mocked by fans for his lanky appearance and lack of coordination on the pitch, but his achievements off it should be highly commended. At a time when Chelsea’s John Terry has infamously been playing the field and Crouch’s Spurs teammate Jermain Defoe has been working his way through every girl who throws themselves at him, Crouch is bucking the trend and is actually in a long-term relationship.
Since his days at Liverpool, Crouchy has been dating leggy blonde Abbey Clancy who can only be described by one word, hot. And the people across the pond certainly agree as Clancy this week followed in the footsteps of many esteemed models and appeared in the highly revered American magazine Sports Illustrated. So whilst Crouch’s lankiness and robot celebration are the source of much hilarity, it looks as though the lucky sod is having the last laugh!
Possibly Liverpool’s finest export, Abigail Clancy has left behind her pop career in which the ‘highlight’ was supporting boy band Blue, and has gone on to put her stunning looks to good use by working as a Lingerie and Catwalk model. Since appearing in Britain’s Next Top Model in 2006 Clancy has appeared on the front of dozens of magazines and fronted many ad campaigns, but her SI swimsuit shoot will now rightfully ensure her worldwide exposure. Crouch’s fiancé has been flying the flag for England and has done a commendable job and firmly put Sarah Brandner (German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger’s other half) and Melissa Satta (the girlfriend of Italy’s Christian Vieri) in the shade.
Clancy’s SI shoot was no ordinary shoot, as the few clothes that she was wearing were actually painted on! A unique experience indeed, Abbey told the Liverpool echo that “At the beginning of the day when I was naked I was thinking, ooh my bottom and my boobs are out.” Behave yourselves! “But by the end you’re just walking around because you actually feel clothed and I was tempted not to wash it off – to fly home to England with it all on!” Well, I’m sure Peter wouldn’t have complained, but I think Harry Redknapp might have been a bit peeved when Crouchy coincidentally didn’t turn up for training. So Clancy has the honour of modelling for Sports Illustrated, but it is Crouch himself who has the ultimate honour of dating the beautiful Scouser, making him the envy of men up and down the country!
