Pride And Premiership

By Michelle Gayle

The diary of Remy Louise Bennet, age 17

Remy Louise Bennet has one goal in life to be a WAG. And as every true wannabe WAG knows, there are rules. One: pretend you don't know he's a footballer. Two: Don't get drunk (or he won't trust you while he's off on pre-season tour). Three: Never dispute a thing his mum says. (They worship their mums.) When Remy starts dating Netherfield Park Rangers' Robbie Wilkins (not Premiership, but good for starters), it seems like all her dreams have come true. Or have they? Remy soon realizes that being a WAG isn't all it's cracked up to be, that Robbie's balls aren't quite so golden ... and that maybe there are smarter dreams to pursue.

  • Michelle has already participated in workshops with The Reading Agency up and down the country, promoting literacy among teenage girls and encouraging them to aspire beyond the WAG myth
  • Michelle is an ex-EastEnders star, chart-topping pop diva and popular TV celebrity
