Bono to give Turlington Away...

Supermodel Christy Turlington has asked Bono to give her away at her wedding to fiance Ed Burns. She made the plea to the U2 singer because she lost her father Dwain Turlington to lung cancer two years ago. A delighted Bono has agreed to the request of his long-time pal and will walk her down the aisle at the June wedding in San Francisco.

Turlington is close friends with both Bono and his wife Ali and has regularly stayed at their mansion in Dublin with fellow supermodel Naomi Cambell.

She and actor Burns got engaged after dating for three months. 'They are both overjoyed and can't wait for the big day,' said one friend of the couple.

Turlington was previously in a relationship with actor Jason Patric for five years who only finished his run in Ireland's Gate Theatre last Saturday.

U2 GET MATCH OF THE DAY Exclusive Eugene Masterson

SUPERGROUP U2 has won the race to pen the theme tune for the new look 'Match of the day'.

Bono and his band who are currently on tour in north America - have been chosen over a string of top acts. ITV will start screening premiership football highlights when 'match of the day's switches from the BBC in the Autumn and were forced to find a new theme tune after the Beeb refused them the original because they want to keep it for England games and FA cup matches.

ITV insiders say they were "very impressed" with U2's upbeat track. "We only had one small stipulation, which was to change one line in the song, 'I'm not a hopeless case', to something like 'I'm going to run this race," one ITV insider told the Ireland on Sunday newspaper.

ITV received a good response when they approached record companies and publishing houses last Autumn looking for new music for their Premiership programming.

U2 were on a shortlist of more than a dozen, which also included New York dance guru Moby, who has already been successful for TV and films. Robbie Williams and Mercury music prize winner Badly Drawn Boy are also believed to have submitted tracks for consideration.

The famous original 'Match of the day' music was composed by Barry Stoller after being commissioned in 1964 and first used in the 70s. Larry Mullen is said to be the most thrilled member of U2 about the news - he regularly attends Ireland international games and invited Roy Keane to U2's recent show in London's Astoria.

The other U2 members are said NOT to be big footie fans, although Bono did attend the World Cup final in Paris between France and Brazil.

But to pull off the achievement of penning the theme tune to what will be a hugely popular programme is seen as a massive coup for the band. A U2 spokesperson told Ireland on Sunday that they have still to be officially informed the band has been picked. ITV are believed to be scheduling their 'Match of the day' for a teatime slot around 6pm on Saturday evenings, as well as an occasion Sunday night and weekly Monday nights highlights programme plus a show on Wednesday night.

Des Lynam is being lined up to present the main Saturday programme, with Gaby Yorath being given the highlights shows. ITV has already raided most of the BBC's 'Match of the day' back-room team for its new look version.

ITV won the rights of Premiership highlights from the BBC for the huge sum of UKú61m a season.
