People think we’re strange to party with our taxi driver...

Still the greatest - the Boys of ''66

SIMON CARTER: Southgate and Co have made us fall back in love with England

Have your say

Last Sunday we went to the White Hart at Denmead to meet our family taxi driver – Phil – and his family who were celebrating his 60th birthday.

Phil asked the Gibbs lot to go because, in his words, ‘you’re my second family’, which I thought was rather sweet.

Some people don’t quite get the way we are – after all who else goes out to celebrate their taxi driver’s birthday? But there again I think we’re a unique bunch of people.

I think Phil feels like this because despite the fact he is our taxi driver, he’s also someone the family look out for – like plating up meals for him or inviting him to our wedding reception.

Family and friends come in all shapes and sizes and I hope Phil had a very special 60th birthday.
