Written by Celia Walden. Celia has begun the awkward process of keeping an eye on the famously charming, but unpredictable, George Best. It's a relationship based on the commercial demands of celebrity journalism. George needs the money and the paper needs readers. But underneath the wine-soaked veneer is wit and intelligence and a man still in love with his estranged wife.

Written by Celia Walden. The public affection for the womanising, hell-raising, often charming and mostly drunk George Best has begun to wane in favour of a macabre fascination with his disintegrating life. The last couple of occasions on which Celia meets George prove that as well as the aggressive egotist flashes of the old humour are still there alongside the wine-fuelled death wish.
