Big Sister

The news that Posh Spice-looky-likey off of Big Brother Chanelle went to LA dressed as Posh Spice, but Posh Spice wouldn't see her really ought to set me off on a Baudrillardian flight of fancy about how many simulacra you can fit on a size zero dressmaker's dummy. But instead I'll just point out that if Chanelle looks like anyone, it's Angela Rippon.

Posh Spice wouldn't see her because she doesn't want to see what she'd look like should she eat a ham sandwich every once in a while.

She looks more like a young David Beckham than Posh.

Can we have her reading the news instead of Natasha Kaplinsky?

Annie: Posh Spice wouldn't want to see her in the same way bad hair metal bands don't like Spinal Tap.

Hey, Geoff, we can't have the Plinsk replaced with a shikse!

Let me guess, 9/10: Jeremy Paxman just asked one of those complicated maths questions, where he pretends to understand. And you just shour random numbers at the telly, like a drunk tic-tac man.

Wasn't fake-celeb Chantelle a Posh-spice lookielikey too? Or am I confused?

No, Billy, Chanelle was a Paris Hilton lookalike, the difference being that Paris Hilton is actually famous for something (although not the kind of thing you might want to put on your CV).

There are worse morbid compulsions you could have, 9/10. In fact, I suspect you probably do.

A couple more degrees of forehead decline and she could do a passable Princess Di.
