Gordon Smart pulls a concerned face as Sarah Harding gives him an exclusive interview about her addiction to pills and booze.
If there's any doubt that this is an interview dictated by a flipchart with the words "Comeback: Media management" at the top, you just have to count off the clichés as they roll by:
She said: "I've been to hell and back.[...] My drinking was out of control [...] I was drinking to deal with my emotions after the split."and so on and so on. You could probably write most of her quotes yourself.
How awkward for Gordon, though. The split which sent her over the edge was from Tom Crane. And what did Gordon say back when she broke-up in September?
By GORDON SMART, Showbiz EditorOddly, Gordon seems to miss the opportunity to apologise for not only adding to the pressure on Sarah by banging on about her love life in a national newspaper, but also wishing that she'd be out on the streets getting pissed.

SARAH HARDING isn't moping about after her split from Tom Crane.The Girls Aloud star is keen to start a new chapter of her life after calling off her engagement to the DJ earlier this month.
The singer said: "I'm ready to take another leap. Hopefully the best is yet to come.
"I feel a little more at ease with what's going on in my life.
"I know where my career's at. I know what I want out of life."
Hopefully Bizarre's former Caner Of The Year will soon be back doing what she does best ... drinking bars dry.
