WAG No. 48: Roxanne Pallett
The Premier League welcomed another WAG to its fold this week, as Roxanne Pallett has been seen out on the tiles with Manchester United defender Danny Simpson. Ms Pallett is an actress most known for her role as Jo Stiles in Emmerdale, although I’ve never actually met anyone who admits to watching the top agricultural soap, so I’m unable to confirm this.
Roxanne is a 25-year-old Cumbrian, who holds a degree from Liverpool John Moores University and was the founding member of underappreciated girl band Urban Angel. After landing a role in the ITV soap, however, she quit the music scene and started dating Corrie actor Richard Fleeshman. She blamed a hectic work schedule, and not his stupid surname, for their break up last year. Her unnerving taste in swimsuits probably didn’t help.
As if being named after a French prostitute in a Police song weren’t enough, Roxanne is also the first WAG of the Day to have a rose named after her – the “Roxanne Pallett Rose” is a deep red coloured hybrid tea rose.
