A 72-YEAR-OLD aristocrat looking for a young "breeder" wife to provide him an heir has labelled British women "fussy" in a desperate appearance on Italian TV. Sir Benjamin Slade, a millionaire from Somerset, also claimed that all men want to sleep with Italian women but he didn't want any applicants from "the jungle".

In just over three weeks time, thousands of people will take on the 52 mile journey from Manchester to Blackpool by bike as part of the British Heart Foundation's (BHF) Night Ride. The cycle, which raises money for the charity's life saving research, sets off from Old Trafford at midnight on Saturday, October 6 and ends on the seafront, where participants will ride under the famous Blackpool illuminations in the early hours of Sunday morning.
