Not all the kids eat as much as Dunny so don't be put off! Is this his first film role since the Venkys ad?

England star! Ha!

Maybe if he'd taken his career seriously and laid off the nights out, pies and beer he might have been a regular, but he was happy just to tootle through his career being nothing more than a mildly technically gifted midfielder.

Such a waste.

I think this is fantastic. Wwhat a great guy David is for stepping up and giving up his own time to support this campaign. Why do people always have to be so negative? Get a life and say something positive for once!
