Not to be outdone by football sex scandals, MP expense debacles, French lingerie models or Scientologists preaching to Haitian earthquake victims, fans of Aussie pop song strangler Peter Andre, the former husband of Katie Price have been flexing their cyberspace muscles by demanding the instant dismissal of Sky News host Kay Burley after she caused the big mardy arse to burst into tears live on the air.
A campaign to have Burley axed has been carefully coordinated across a raft of social networking and just plain daft websites. These clearly deluded individuals seem to forget that Ms Burley is an iconic figure in TV news broadcasting, the face that brought us 9/11, the recession, the expenses scandal, and more recently the war in Afghanistan. Sky execs are hardly likely to give her the chop because she made some sadsack Z-list celeb burst into tears on air.
The incident occurred as Ms Burley interviewed Andre about his ex, Katie Price tying the knot with CBB winner Alex Reid in Las Vegas this week. She asked Andre if this could mean that the cross-dressing cage fighter might be tempted to apply to adopt Andre's two kids by Jordan, as well as the one she had with Dwight Yorke, the footballer.
At which point, Andre came over all melodramatic and said that such a scenario would never happen, vowing to fight to the death for his kids if necessary, before unexpectedly bursting into tears and blubbing in the manner of a little girl who has just had her pigtails pulled, and hobbling brokenly out of shot.
A colleague of Kay Burley's who did not wish to be named told us that she was merely doing her job by asking questions that the public wanted answered, and that she was unrepentant and almost certainly would not be fired by Sky.
Katie Price and Alex "Rocky" Reid, the cross-dressing cage fighter were said to be unavailable as they were on their honeymoon in Las Vegas arguing furiously like two little bitches.
More as we get it.
