Lily Allen explains her tears at football match

Thursday May 13, 2010

Having been pictured crying her eyes out as Fulham lost the Europa Cup final on Wednesday night, Lily Allen has explained why she got so emotional.

"I was upset for my granddad. He's been a fan since the Thirties and been going to see them since the early Forties. I really wanted them to win so he could see them win for once," the Smile singer told ITV's This Morning.

"I woke up this morning and my phone had been charging overnight and I had all these text messages going 'Don't cry Lil'. I was going, 'What's everyone talking about?'

"I cry at EastEnders, I cry at John Lewis adverts, I cry at pretty much anything."
