Lembit Opik, the Liberal Democrat MP who swapped his weathergirl to date Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia, wants to go on tour with his new love - as part of the band!
Sian Lloyd, Opik's dumpee, said she had heard from friends that her ex had said that he wanted to be a Cheeky Boy with Gabriela. It is not known whether or not he has written any songs, but it's a safe bet that if he has, they will be awful - just like the Cheeky Girls!
Having changed his name to the slightly less strange Kip O'Timble, the MP says that looking weird and having a funny name are "two of the most important attributes a pop star must have". Another is 'singing ability' which, he claims, he is working on.
Asked whether he thought the Cheeky Girls were crap, he replied, "Of course they are! But who cares? They wear no knickers!"
