The Sun was delighted when Heather Mills took a job on Dancing With The Stars. The public, Emily Smith and Emily Cox were certain, were preparing to give her a bloody nose:
Sir Paul McCartney’s estranged wife was hoping to win new fans by appearing on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing.
But Mills is ODDS ON at 5-6 to be the first to go and is the 50-1 rank outsider to win, according to Ladbrokes.
A spokesman said: “Regardless of how well Heather can dance, she’s public enemy number one.”
Blimey, that's definitive.
That was March 14th; a week later, Victoria Newton joined in, readying her knitting as she waited for the tumbrils:
AMERICAN viewers have told HEATHER MILLS to Foxtrot Oscar after her first appearance on a celebrity ballroom TV show.
Heather agreed to appear on Dancing With The Stars in a bid to win over the US public after becoming one of Britain’s most hated women following her split from SIR PAUL McCARTNEY.
But the plan has backfired already.
While viewers of the US version of Strictly Come Dancing have not yet had the chance to kick her off the show — the first elimination is next week — they have been letting rip with a barrage of scathing comments.
And now there's been a public vote, by now Mills must have been dumped out on the street round the back of the ABC studios, right?
Erm... not exactly. E! Online reports:
Doubtless The Sun will be first with this news tomorrow.
