Bikinis! In Brit Another Bank Holiday, another coast-load of the UK’s hottest sun-seeking girls in their best bikinis. And the even better news? We’ve still got another Bank Holiday to come! SPOTTED IN… Wales! Proof that girls just can’t run. Still, 18-year-old Megan proves that, as long as they’re in tiny bikinis and feigning interest in ball sports, we’ll stare anyway.

SPOTTED IN… Brighton! Where Brighton Tourism failed, Charlotte Lincroft, 22, succeeds, transforming the horizon from “knackered old pier” to “tidy young brunette”. Give her an award.

SPOTTED IN… Brighton! A butt that’ll crack walnuts, pins that deserve attention. All obscuring a man in silly shorts. Which is no great loss, to be honest.

SPOTTED IN… Wales! Nicola and Carrie, both 21, practice the ancient art of “identical walking” on Barry beach. Partial success. Top Gun shades: less so.

Write Off Typewriters have run out of ink after the last factory making them in the world, in Mumbai, stopped production. What will we use to type out ransom notes now?



part 2 SPOTTED IN… Wales! Porthcawl beach and Aimee Phillips, 20, with nice leg extension, praying a man uses that huge earring as an ice-breaker. “Wow that’s an earring! I’m Bob. Er… snog?”

100% all real girls!

SPOTTED IN… Devon! Students Yvette (brunette) and Cat (not an actual cat), both 19, both openly perving at local Croyde surfers. Play it cool, ladies. Play it cool.

SPOTTED IN… Brighton! Katy, 19, picks the perfect moment to show off laser-smooth pits a Gillette Venus can only dream of. Nice rack, too. Obviously.

In the gym with the Pa man! We went along to the Wild Card Gym in LA to watch boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao train – and see if we could pick up a couple of tips


t’s not very often you walk into a gym to find it’s standing room only. But then, it’s not very often you get to see the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world going through his paces at his local sweatshop. This was the position we found ourselves in when eight-weight world champion Manny Pacquiao opened the doors to his gym in LA for an open workout ahead of his title fight with Shane Mosley this weekend. The world’s boxing press packed into the Wild Card Gym – home of the Filipino fight machine and his battle-hardened trainer, Freddie Roach – as the sport’s dynamic duo went through drill after drill with such ferocious intensity you worried for the punchbag. Just as in a real fight the bell sounds every three minutes, bringing a short one-minute break before the Pacman goes to work on the skipping ropes, punchbags and speed ball. The excitement reaches a crescendo when legendary trainer Roach dons the body pads and mitts to join Pacquiao and act as a human punchbag. He’s not

shown any mercy as the champ fires off one six-punch combo after another in what seems more of a workout for coach than fighter. Luckily for the veteran trainer, Pacquiao takes a break from proceedings to talk about his impending dual with Mosley, meeting Barack Obama and whether he’ll ever fight Floyd Mayweather Jnr… How tough is your next fight, Manny? I consider Shane Mosley to be one of my toughest opponents yet. He is bigger than me and he’s got fast hands; in fact, he’s faster than most of my opponents. He’s a former pound-for-pound king and he’s also preparing hard so you can never underestimate him. Are you ever going to fight Floyd Mayweather Jnr? For me, there’s a chance. It’s up to him

“Mayweather’s waiting till I get old”

if he wants to fight. I think he’s trying to wait for me to get older. Are you trying to beat the same guys to prove you’re better than him? I never compare myself to anyone. I don’t look at my accomplishments in relation to anyone else’s. I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished in boxing. What was it like meeting President Barack Obama? It was a big honour for me to meet with the President of the United States and to go to the White House. We just talked about basketball and boxing. He’s a good guy. Having released a song last week, is your career as a pop star sorted for when you hang up the gloves? I love singing, but when I finish boxing in a couple more years, I will focus on serving the people as a congressman. So can we expect a knockout this weekend? I’m just going to punch him and do my best. If the knockout comes, it comes. My first concern as a boxer is to try hard and give a good performance for the fans.
