Have your say

Rooney’s better half (in SO many ways) seems nice enough.

She’s one of the least flashy of the WAGs and has had to put up with more than most of her cohorts. But a stressful life? Oh come on.

How does she manage to juggle marriage, her “career” as a fashion designer (err, it’s for Littlewoods) and columnist, all her charity work AND motherhood, ask Tesco, who have appointed her ambassador for their Mum of the Year Awards 2014 - in breathily reverential tones. Nauseating or what?

The irony is these awards give much-deserved accolades to ordinary women who have done the most amazing things. Far more amazing achievements than marrying a footballer. And all without having millions in the bank and a team of nannies, cleaners, chauffeurs, stylists and, I expect, their very own shopper paid to trundle the aisles of Tesco with a wonky trolley.

Finalists include Rotherham mother Michelle Fudge, who decided something had to be done when her son was driven to the brink of suicide by school bullies.

She set up The Silent Voice charity, supporting parents and children through the confidence-sapping trauma of bullying. Michelle even took on the government to ensure the ways schools deal with bullying changed. Now, how did she manage to juggle all that along with motherhood?
