England captain Millie Bright thought OBE letter was parking fine


Millie Bright thought OBE letter was parking fine confirmation as England star reacts to New Year Honours

England’s World Cup captain Millie Bright thought a letter she received about being made an OBE in the New Year Honours List was a parking fine confirmation.

The 30-year-old Chelsea defender, who got engaged to her partner Levi Crew on Christmas Day, said: “Levi opened the letter for me because I was at training.

“He saw what it was straight away and he was like ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to tell her’. So he sent me a message saying ‘you’ve got a letter, it’s really important’.

“I thought ‘Oh God, what have I done? Am I in trouble again? It’s probably a parking fine or something like that.”
