Stewart Ferris, TV dating expert, said:
ANDY is only 18 and still in short trousers, so he is clearly going to find the forthcoming flood of female attention somewhat bemusing. He'll be wondering if the girls like him for his personality, his looks or for the things he can do with his forehand.

The reality is they will be attracted to him because he is a winner. At an instinctive level we are all attracted to people who win: we want to be associated with their success. Andy will have to remember that any girl he talks to should also be treated like a winner. He mustn't take for granted his elevated status and look down on female companions. His aura of celebrity will dissolve once a girl gets to know him, and that's when he'll have to use charm and be romantic like the rest of us.

Fiona Firth, menswear controller at Harvey Nicholssaid, said:
Unfortunately his age goes against him, and, in this day, you have to take your profession seriously. For him, this means looking older. We don't want to pile the pressure on him too much, but the media are looking for the new David Beckham. His grooming is imperative here: he needs to adopt a skin-care regime and stick to it.

Fiona Firth is suggesting he should maybe wear some Pringle?  Yuck, he's 18 he'd be better off with Quiksilver or Vans something a bit more trendy than Pringle.  Let him wear what he wants, there's nothing worse than having to wear something you feel uncomfortable in, I can just see him in his shirt and tie pulling at his collar all night.

I so agree. Hopefully Queen Judy will give sound advice. I hope he doesn't go all fame whory like Becs. The only bit I agreed with was the PR bit- the media adviser. In this day and age that's going to save him a lot of hassle.

I think he'd look blinking awful in a suit. It's just not him.

Let him be the age he is, not some corporate brand.  :twisted:

^^^  duh totally agree! FOOLS!! age.. hair.. skin.. a new becks.. NOO!! that's what we don't want! no more Becks.. no more beautiful hair.. no more good skin!! Good thing about Andy is that he doesn't go around in 100 dollar rolls royces, changing his hairstyle every second and thinking about what skin cream to try next.. personally i love his skin!  Embarassed  wink  Rolling Eyes he's a teenage for christ's sake!
