Katlaughing - "She has withdrawn from public life" - you are having a laugh, no? This is your Jade Goody joke?

Melodeonboy -
She came to "fame" by exposing her vagina to the cameras in "Big Brother" with immortal words "Oops, I just got out me kebab". I forget exactly how but she confirmed the impression given by displaying spectacular ignorance about matters of fact politics and geography (and indeed, every time she opened he mouth, speech habits).

She reinforced the impression on a later "Big Brother" by referring to Silpa Sheti (not sure I have the name quite right) as "Silpa Poppadom" and a remark to the effect of "You may be the Queen of Sheba where you come from..."

For some reason (I cannot imagine what) the press seemed fascinated with her, and without any merit or virtue she managed to remain in the public eye and become undeservedly rich on the proceeds.

How different from the home life of our own dear Queen (NB that is a quote). In comparison Christine Keeler, Mandy Rice-Davies and Pamella Bordes were models of propriety (and a lot more decorative).
