In the last few hours I have learned from my sources in New York that Amanda Holden, recently seen shopping in the big Apple for nothing in particular "coz I got everyfink," has been involved in "a scare". The scare arrived totally out of the blue without any warning and at least twelve people telephoned the New York police department to report it.
A spokesman for Ms Holden tried to play down the scare by only answering our questions in a whispered voice - however my persistent questions brought about an admission that the scare was indeed that.
Pressed further the spokesperson admitted that there had been no advance warning or tell tale signs that a scare was on the way - although he confirmed that a monitoring procedure was now in place and would remain so until this scare was over and to prevent further scares.
"I will say no more", said the spokesperson - "except to say that there is no reason to link Amandas scare with the recent scare involving Katy Price - although at first glance he agreed, the scares did appear to be related.
I have tried to verify this story, however the rear doors of the Pizza Hut in Plaistow were firmly closed so my normal "delivery boy" source for such things was unavailable to comment.
