Cherie Blair seems to be almost unembarrassable, but even she must cringe at the antics of her half sister Lauren Booth. Miss Booth sees the sunsetting on her career as a media pundit, for after Cherie dances off into the sunset, Lauren's unique selling point disappears. No longer is she the sister-in-law of the British Prime Minister. Hence her appearance on I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here. It's a last desperate throw of the dice designed to keep her in the media spotlight.
Yesterday she appeared to let slip that Tony Blair was intending to depart the scene in January. She then paused, and said 'oh, February, or March, or it might be April'. The intention was to make us all think that she is 'in the know'. The fact of the matter is that Cherie and Blair are more likely to confide in David Cameron than they are to talk to Lauren Booth about this or anything else. So if you become an addict to I'm a Celbrity and Lauren mentions anything to do with her famous relatives dip your fingers into the salt bowl and take a massive pinch.
