Diary: PR blonde says Hoddle could be on to a Shaw thing

The tabloids went into a bidding frenzy last week over Pippa Rodger, account executive at London PR firm Shaw PR.

The tabloids went into a bidding frenzy last week over Pippa

Rodger, account executive at London PR firm Shaw PR.



Rodger is pictured here on the Sport’s pages at England’s recent World

Cup warm-up against Saudi Arabia. Her cheeky banner led the Sport to

launch a reader appeal to reveal the identity of the mystery blonde. An

unnamed colleague tipped off the paper and its rivals of her whereabouts

and sparked a bidding war for Rodger to appear topless on their

pages.



Currently the best offer stands at pounds 500 leaving Rodger feeling a

little undervalued. Instead she has offered to appear at England’s

opening match of the World Cup wearing only body paint in England’s

colours if a newspaper pays travel and ticket costs.



’Nobody is willing to take me,’ laments Rodger. ’They obviously think

this is too high a price to pay.’



Rodger also tells me that the meaning of her banner has been

misconstrued.



Apparently it wasn’t an invitation for ’Mary Poppins’ to drop his shorts

but a plea to Glenn Hoddle to take her to France as a player. Rodger

says she is tall, fast and can control the ball. Come on Glenn, she

sounds better than Sheringham.
