Scratching around for evidence
Another grim story, but the celebrity news of the day seems to be of a darker hue than normal. Anyway, kids' TV presenter Mark Speight has been let off the hook after being held on suspicion of murdering his fiancee, who was found dead in the bath last week.
It did seem deeply unlikely that he had anything to do with the tragic event, which sounds far more like an awful accident. But we suspect the police might have been influenced by his terrifyingly sinister performance in children's show of yore Scratchy and Co. Man, that guy gave us nightmares.
Speaking of more things proving untrue, the McCanns have categorically denied the film story we commented on yesterday. The brown bread plans, however, they maintain a studious silence about.
