We're surprised Madonna has gone to the million-quid expense of buying the house next door to hers: isn't her usual way leaning on the government to get them to redraw boundaries and just include the house in her property?

Still, the motivation for buying a new house in the same street is curious: the official line is it's for staff - yes, she now believes she's so regal she's providing grace and favour homes for her people, just like the Queen. But we do wonder if she's just getting ready for a 21st century update on the classic sitcom My Wife Next Door, where a newly-divorced couple live in adjoining houses.
Imagine the lucrative income from a reality-TV makeover of that, eh?
