Celebs quake cringe.
ALL right, I know I'm a nasty old cow but the sight of all these celebs doing their bit for Haiti is beginning to stick in my craw.
And, yes, I know they've raised a lot of money which might - but there again, given the immediate generosity of ordinary people, only might - not have been forthcoming, but for their well and possibly over publicised efforts.
So call me bitchy - and you usually do - but I don't think I'm the only one who gets the strong impression that it's as much about improving their PR as helping the Haitians.
Charity, as the Good Book says, isn't puffed up.
I think it was the sight of John Travolta, in his personal jet, flying in with his grinning, gruesome Scientology missionaries in tow, which finally did it for me.
Why not just send the plane, John, packed to the gunwales with medical supplies and other essentials - but minus you and definitely without the creepy disciples.
Still, it could be worse.
Neither Madonna nor Angelina have swooped in to bag themselves a photogenic orphan. Yet.
