Famous rich person Cherie Blair is to join the cast of Ugly Betty for the next season of the programme.

Blair, who works as a full-time beauty salon customer, also has a part-time job as a lawyer. However, since her husband Tony ("Trust me") Blair resigned as Prime Minister, she's been losing many of her cases. One judge recently told her:

"Since you're no longer the Prime Minister's wife, I'll say something I've wanted to say for over 10 years. Fuck off out of my court room!"

Without the backing of her husband, her career has taken a turn for the worse, as clients have been deserting her. The clerk at her barristers' chambers said:

"One solicitor client rang up asking for Gordon Brown's wife to represent him."

Mrs Blair's agent said that the role in Ugly Betty was just perfect for Cherie.

"We all know what she looks like first thing in the morning. Everyone remembers that video clip of her opening her front door to take the milk in, with her hair dishevelled and bags under her eyes. She was new to Downing Street then and apparently thought the house had a porch."

Mrs Blair's character will be a long-lost ugly sister of Ugly Betty from Jersey. The producer of the show said:

"Unlike America Georgine Ferrera, who plays the role of Ugly Betty and is beautiful in real life, Cherie is an eyesore to look at, even after 3 hours of make-up. She's just what we wanted."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
