Celebrity something or other, Katie Price went absolutely ballistic this morning when she opened the newspapers, after seeing her fake tan compared with a Ronseal finish in the Sun newspaper. Which also had published her photo, made changeable into different shades of the popular woodstain at the click of a mouse.
According to sources, it wasn't quite the news story that Katie had engineered to hit the headlines. Rumour has it that Katie was sporting a flashy diamond engagement ring, which is what she wanted to publicise, but unfortunately for her, the biggest attention grabber was the antique walnut shade of her fake tan.
When Ms Price saw the newspaper this morning, she went ballistic, and knocked a sugar bowl and a glass of orange juice off the breakfast table onto the kitchen floor.
According to a neighbour, she could be heard early this morning screaming at the children to get back in their rooms, and swearing repeatedly at the top of her voice.
"There were terrified rabbits legging it in all directions on the South Downs," a neighbour remarked. "She could curdle milk with that voice."
A spokesman from the Sun said that the newspaper hadn't intended to cause Ms Price any upset, adding that the click-on Ronseal woodstain picture was just a joke, and that the editor hoped that she'd take it in the spirit in which it was intended.
There seems little chance of that happening.
More as we get it.
