London, Apr 30 (ANI): Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has become a fan of the TV show "This side of Pineapple Dance Studios Glee". And his first exposure to the song and dance spectacular came courtesy his wife
The American series, which is broadcast on Channel 4, follows the ups and down of a High School Glee club, a choir that specialises in singing popular songs rather than classical works.
Alex Curran insisted her husband watch it with her when it was first aired and now he can't get enough of it.
"Stevie has developed quite a passion for Glee. Alex loves it and made Steven watch it with her. At first he was always moaning about it as it wasn't his kind of show.
"If he had his way he would have the footie on 24/7. But after a bit of perseverance from the missus now Stevie doesn't miss an episode," The Sun quoted a friend of the England ace, as saying.
"He can't get enough of it. It's all a bit cheesy but Stevie finds it funny, he has a good laugh about it. Even when he misses the show Alex always has it on Sky Plus so Stevie can catch up," the friend revealed.
Such dedication is also a tactical masterstroke from the midfielder. "It has scored him major bonus points with the wife, so when he fancies watching a bit of Sky Sports Alex doesn't mind," the friend said. (ANI)
