His 'lovely' wife will now be referred to as Lady Wiggins?

Is there something about a picture of a women laughing in the back of a car with her husband that justifys your use of the phrase 'lovely' wife?

She looks like a lady who's had a few drinks, having a laugh and enjoying herself. Like loads of women on a night out in fact.

Yes, she will be Lady Wiggins. Does it bother you OP?

Yep, that's what I'm seeing too, a happy couple on a night out.

Congrats to him.

She looks great! What is it with this forum sometimes. If she was sat in the back of the car with a face like a smacked A*se you'd all complain.

Nowt wrong with having a few drinkies and a giggle with the hubby...hell I should know. Typical Saturday night out for me

I know Kath and she is a really nice lady.. There is no airs and graces about either of them and he won't let this title go to his head.

I think she is great. She came across very well in the documentary, a mix of incredibly supportive, self-reliant and a healthy amount of cynicism.

They seem to have a lovely family.

Me too, except I wouldn't look half as good as she does, my mascara would be all round my eyes, my dress would be crumpled and I'd have spilt at least one drink on it

'Sir Bradley Wiggins'?
Sounds like a made-up name on Horrible Histories!

Sir Bradley, not `Sir Wiggins`! Yes, his wife can call herself Lady Wiggins if she wishes. She looks like a nice lady.

It does sound a bit Dickensian.

It said in my paper that Bradley said a knighthood is good but a Paul Weller gig is better!!!!

I haven't had time to go right through the list of names yet, but re Katherine Grainger getting an award in the Honours' list, does her partner Anna Watkins get anything as she never gets a mention... it's always about Katherine but it took two of them to win the Olympic medals!!

His wife does seem a bit mouthy to be fair. She's started a few fights on Twitter and had a go at that woman who knocked him off his bike without knowing the full story.

What a nasty, spiteful thread.

Delighted for Bradley and Catherine, he deserves that Knighthood, amazing sportsman.

She didn't start the 'fight' on Twitter, Chris Froome's girlfriend did.

The Daily Fail chose to highlight Bradley Wiggins in the title, making it look like his wife had started it.

What's the full story then? I seem to have missed it!

She probably made the same assumptions as nearly everyone else, by the way...

She's a real woman, not some airbrushed skeletal thing with a face like fourpence, and well done to Sir Bradley of Wiggins.

Obilgatory attack on thin women.

The Duchess of Cornwall always behaves with decorum.
