BRIAN Coleman, the Conservative London Assembly member for Barnet and Camden and the politician boss of the capital’s fire brigade, thinks he has the inside gossip behind actor Sean Bean’s fourth divorce. Reviewing newspapers with old foe Ken Livingstone on LBC radio on Saturday, he revealed:
I was drawn to the Daily Express, not I have to say to their front page which carries yet another story about Princess Diana but to page 25 which reports that the 51 year-old actor Sean Bean, the star of Sharpe and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, is about to divorce his fourth wife.
I’m not surprised because I canvassed Mr and Mrs Sean Bean in Belsize Park the other week and Mrs Bean was a Conservative pledge and he told the Tory canvassers to politely f off. So not surprised that they are getting divorced, as no doubt he can’t stand being married to a Tory voter.
Who knew the Frognal by-election, won emphatically by the Conservatives, would reveal such tensions.
