Cricket fans Lily Allen and Stephen Fry have returned to Twitter.com after a Christmas break to salute England's cricket heroes, after they defeated Australia Down Under to retain the coveted The Ashes trophy.
Pop star Allen jumped on her BlackBerry early on Wednesday (29Dec10) to celebrate England's fourth Test Match win in Melbourne, which means the visiting team retains the cup for the first time in 24 years.
The Smile singer wrote, "Whoooooooo, hooooooooooo. England retain the Ashes on Aussie soil. Didn't get to see any of the last 2 tests but very proud! Well done!!!"
And cricket-mad Fry wrote, "We've retained #theashes!! Yahoo!!"
