Shilpa Shetty is rumoured to have sacked her recently appointed PR guru Max Clifford following comments he attributed to her about celebrity numbskull Jade Goody.
Miss Shetty, 31, made it clear that Clifford's comments in no way represented her own views. A spokesman added 'Jade Goody came to India trying to make amends, and whilst being completely pointless, her actions have showed true remorse and considerable personal courage. Had Shilpa not been working flat out to finish painting her toenails, she would have been delighted to see her in Mumbai'.
Shilpa, known for her kind heart and forgiving nature thinks that Jade Goody's visit to India was ill advised rather than the 'complete disaster' Max Clifford described. Our source continued 'Everyone knows she is as thick as two short planks, but we had thought that her muppeteers were competent !'.
Keen to get in on the action, Richard Branson has offered Miss Shetty a lift back to London on Virgin Airlines. After that she is to meet with Miss Goody for lunch at the Dog and Partridge pub in Chipping Ongar.
A source has indicated that they are now considering starring together in an advertisement for Oxo Cubes to be screened weekdays, and well after the watershed.
