Ronnie Baxter / Nikki Sanderson (Blackpool)

Blackpool's unlikely ascent to the Premier League has led many to conclude they are not anything like ready for top flight football. Ian Holloway has been desperately scouring the market for new recruits and we can testify attracting big names to the town that brought you rock and the tower is no easy feat. We've trawled back editions of the Blackpool Gazette in a bid to bring WAG-style glamour to the seaside resort but turned up only blind alleys. Even finding celebrity fans has proved tough, with cauliflower head Bill Beaumont the best we could muster. It was then with absolute delight that we discovered one-time Coronation Street actress and all-round glamour puss Nikki Sanderson hails from within spitting distant of Bloomfield Road. Fans of the cobbled streets will know Sanderson's character Candice played a WAG on the show, dating Danny Baldwin - one of Weatherfield Town's brightest talents no less. Whether Nikki is pleased with her stag - Blackpool-born darts hunk Ronnie Baxter - has not been confirmed at the time of going to press.

Ivan Klasnic / Patricia Klasnic (Bolton)

Bolton striker Ivan Klasnic is one of life's battlers having become the only player to ever participate at a major tournament after a kidney transplant, scoring twice at the 2008 European Championship. Behind every good man is a great woman and Ivan is ever willing to pay praise to his wife Patricia. The big man admits one of his pre-match rituals is to call his better half, who throughout two kidney transplants stood by his side. Our German is limited to 'Ich mochte ein bier bitte' (look it up) so we can't really explain why Patricia has had plenty of column inches in the German glossies, but our research (it's a tough gig) suggests she was well liked over there during her hubby's spell at Werder Bremen.
