Intelligence experts in Moscow and London are puzzling over whether the lovely Anna Chapman has been acting as a Double Agent in her dramatic spy activities.
A clue has been discovered because of her urgent coded message to Channel 4 to put her on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here'!
Executives have passed on all evidence to MI5 who are trying to decide if this is the real Anna Chapman or someone cunningly using her name.
Anna has even been seen in Sidcup, Barnsley and St Albans in recent days, putting in doubt claims from Moscow that she is safely in Putin's arms.
Meanwhile Britain's secret services are on the look out for Anna equivalents. Unemployed university graduates and those not getting places, who fit the MI5 criteria, are being sought. They will be given crash courses in Russian if selected.
Worried official fear however that MI5 could be infiltrated by a foreign power. But a new system, claimed to be foolproof, is being brought in to find out if applicants are the genuine thing.
Readers of tea leaves are being assembled to 'read' the motives of applicants in the tea leaves they leave in their cups! MI5 have overcome strong doubts from the Government about this system. George Osborne who argued that in these stringent times the extra expense of loose tea leaves over tea bags was likely to endangered his austerity measures was over ruled by David Cameron and Nick Clegg who in unison cried : 'We must spare no expense in finding our very own Anna!'
Applicants are already waiting at secret rendezvous with those having a proven record of reading tea leaves. Among them is the famous Mystic Meg who predicted the events that would take place in the World Cup final.
It is only a matter of time before, as the Prime Minister put it : 'We are drinking tea in the highest circles of the secret world of espionage.'
