Following a catastrophic £11,000 visit to a Hollywood hairdresser, which seemingly led to her hair breaking off all over the shop, sources close to the reality TV star Katie Price, say that they are genuinely concerned that her entire head may fall off at some point in the near future.
"Let's face it," said one. "If her hair can break off, just like that, as Tommy Cooper used to say, then it could happen to her entire head too. It isn't entirely beyond the realms of possibility."
Entertainment industry historians admit that despite extensive research into a myriad of dead celebrities, there is no evidence of any deceased celebs meeting their demise because their heads have fallen off.
"We found one who died on the toilet, eating a quadruple cheeseburger," historian Dorian Grey told Skoob Entertainment News. "And a couple who managed to throttle themselves locked in wardrobes having a crafty auto-erotic wank, but so far we haven't found any examples of people's heads falling off. We can only conclude that there doesn't appear to be a precedent."
But the news did little to allay the fears of Katie's army of fans, many of whom will be closely monitoring her head, in case it shows signs of falling off.
"I hope her head doesn't fall off," diehard fan and convicted gerbil abuser, Eric Stickleback, of Kidderminster opined. "It would be a right tragedy that. In fact, if that was to happen, I don't think I could handle the trauma. I started self-harming when I heard her hair was breaking off. I felt so sorry for her. But if if her head was to fall off, I'd probably not be able to handle it, and I'd just have to top meself in a really melodramatic way. Her means the world to me does Katie."
As indeed she appears to do for her legions of adoring fans.
Apart from Peter Andre and Alex Reid.
More as we get it.
