This is why they call it surveillance

It's usually irritating when gossip columns describe "someone phoning in having seen someone vaguelly famous going into a shop" as surveillance, as if it's information that has some intrinsic purpose. But hearing who was at The Fratellis gig at the weekend does actually fit the bill as a kind of grisly warning to steer clear of the band.

They attracted Peaches Geldof, Kate Lawler, Will Young and. of course, Victoria Newton. Sometimes it's handy to know whose shoulders you'll be rubbing.
