The actress ...no that's wrong, supermodel ...wrong again, TV presenter ...nah, best make it celebrity, has come in for some stick in this column before, merely because we have never been able to fathom exactly how she manages to make a fortune out of being famous for no reason.

HARD luck to the woman we know who followed the advice in yesterday's Record to "lose 10 years in your lunch hour". She went out as a manager and came back as the office junior.
