They say a week is a long time in politics but it's also a long time in love because if reports emerging tonight are to be believed, then it's all gone down the tubes for Lib Dem MP Lembit Opik.
Only last week he was telling us that he'd found the new love of his life in Gabriela Irimia, one half of the Cheeky Girls top pop duo, but now sadly we can report that love is as cold as a cold snap that his former TV weather girl girlfriend, Sian Lloyd, might report on any day of the week.
It was thought by some commentators that Lembit might have been used as a pawn to facilitate visa applications for the twin sisters but now as Romania will join the EU from January 2007; there is no need for them to hang around with him any more. Gabriela told The Spoof:
"He is certainly cheeky boy all right! Always he is wanting to touch my bum like our song says but I am saying that I have the headache sometimes and that's good. I not sure how long things will last between us"
Sian Lloyd was believed to be cock-a-hoop tonight when she heard the news and a close friend said:
"She is of course very saddened by these developments but she is being very brave and laughing through the tears. In fact she hasn't stopped laughing since she heard the news. What a trooper"
The Spoof can certainly report that when Miss Lloyd announced the weather this morning on ITV she looked very happy indeed.
