The troubled star turns up , along with the likes of Jarvis Cocker and Justine Frischmann, at the premiere of footy film 'Mike Bassett: England Manager'...

CERYS MATTHEWS made her first public appearance since the CATATONIA

split at the celebrity premiere of British football movie ‘MIKE BASSETT: ENGLAND

MANAGER’ last night (September 25).


A mixed crowd of pop stars, actors and football personalities descended on London’s

Leicester Square to see the movie, a comedy

about a no-hope coach plucked from obscurity to try and help England’s

football team land the Jean Remy trophy. Atomic

Kitten, who play themselves in the movie, were also at the premiere, along

with Justine Frischmann, Jarvis Cocker, Sugababes


and Simply

Red’s Mick Hucknall.

“I’m here because I’ve got a song on the album,” Jarvis Cocker

told NME.COM. “It’s a brilliant song, actually.” The solo Jarvis

track, ‘Everybody Loves The Underdog’, appears on the soundtrack to ‘Mike

Bassett: England Manager’, which was released this week. The album also features

contributions by Robbie Williams,

Justine Frischmann & British Meat Scene, Cerys Matthews

with All

Seeing I and Supergrass.

‘The Royle Family’ dad Ricky Tomlinson has the title role in the film, and

he posed with co-star Keith Allen, who wore fake breasts as a mocking

tribute to Liz Hurley’s notorious arrival at the 1994 premiere of ‘Four

Weddings & A Funeral’. Allen told reporters: “This is

an exact copy of Liz Hurley’s dress and it obviously works because

everyone is pointing their camera at me.”

The film goes out on general release this Friday (September 28).
