News of this has reached the Echo:

You’re fur it now Coleen!

ANIMAL rights activists are planning to confront Coleen McLaughlin before a Liverpool signing of her autobiography.

Protesters drenched in fake blood carrying gruesome banners with pictures of skinned animals were set to wait for Wayne Rooney’sfiancee outside Waterstone’s bookshop tomorrow.

The members of Merseyside Animal Rights are targeting Coleen, 20, after she was photographed shopping in “fur retailer” Cricket in Cavern Walks.

Croxteth-born Coleen, who will celebrate her 21st birthday at a £150,000 party in Thornton Hall, Wirral, this month, has also worn outfits trimmed with fur.

A statement released by MAR said it hoped to convince Coleen to ditch real fur clothing.

It said: “MAR hope that fashion icon Coleen, when she realises exactly what the rest of her boots and coat look like, will renounce her allegiance to real fur retailers Cricket and realise the future is fabulously fake.

“MAR is campaigning for a fur-free Liverpool before 2008. Will Coleen opt for compassion and true culture, or Cricket and all that’s vulgar?”

Spokeswomen for Coleen McLaughlin and Cricket both declined to comment.

    to the person who left the ‘get a life’ comment, first of all we all have a great life and we have got better things to do with saturdays but feel we must make a stand against this cruelty, life is more than just shopping and drinking and the other things that you probably do in your spare time!!! maybe you should take a hard look at yourself! hopefully coleen will look at herself also and think about the poor animals being skinned alive just for fashion!

    Get a life must be so ashamed of themselves as to not even leave their real name. So sad.
