Defoe back with Charlotte Mears – romance lives!
Romantic settings are hard to come by in this vicious war-torn world. There’s the Empire State Building (Hanks/Ryan territory), the Eiffel Tower (a Crouch/Clancey favourite), beachy sunsets (any idiot who travels to Thailand in their “gap year”) and, of course, Embassy nightclub in fashionable London. It’s the place where Jermain Defoe practices his romance.
Not so long ago, he brutally chucked Charlotte Mears in favour of kindly Danielle Lloyd – their romance was sealed with a massive snog in the VIP bit (perhaps), and now he’s re-romanced his former girlfriend, Mears, with a trip to Embassy, presumably as a way to say “sorry” and “let’s have sex”.
But should she really forgive him? And is romance actually dead?
