Angela Saunders Footie Girl With Va Va Voom She's Tash Parker in Sky's Dream Team and she used to be an Arsenal fan but saw the light: meet Angela Saunders 'In my time as a Grand Prix girl I've held Ralf Schumacher's, Jacques Villeneuve's and Rubens Barrichello's. I'd say Barrichello's was probably the longest.' In my time as a Grand Prix girl I've held Ralf Schumacher's, Jacques Villeneuve's and Rubens Barrichello's. I'd say Barrichello's was probably the longest Angela Saunders is clearly not the sort of girl to take a back seat where sportsmen are concerned. Although, disappointingly, she is talking about her three-year stint as a grid girl, where she was charged with holding up the names of Formula 1 drivers in the sauciest manner possible. Now playing footballer's wife Tash Parker in Sky's Dream Team, the 25-year-old from Bromley is still turning heads. Dating Spurs footballer Stephen Clemence, the slinky blonde would appear to be perfectly cast. 'I wasn't going out with Stephen when I got the part, so at least that never influenced their decision,' she laughs. 'The strange thing was I also had a few recalls to play Chardonnay in Footballer's Wives but as I was still under contract to Dream Team, I had to opt out. At the time her character was a blonde called Cheryl - I think they changed it because it was too close to Sheryl Gascoigne.' Given that her life appears to be immersed in football, does she have a fondness for wearing a football strip in bed? 'I have got an England football shirt but I only wore it during England's World Cup matches,' says the former hospital worker. 'It's not that I mind dressing up in the bedroom but I think guys should be willing to do the same for us. If I had my way I'd have him in a soldier's outfit because I'm a big one for uniforms.' Formerly a big one for Arsenal, she switched allegiance after meeting Stephen. 'I couldn't have been a huge Gooner because I got easily swayed out of it. But I hate admitting that I'm living with a footballer because it's such a cliche. And when people realise he's Ray Clemence's son they always ask if, like his father, he's good with his hands.' A cheap shot and no mistake. So has he ever been known to fumble? 'He knows what he's doing,' she laughs, 'so I guess some of it's rubbed off.'
