Because living like a celebrity doesn’t have to cost the Earth…
We don’t usually have a lot of praise for the Geordie Shore, but last week they certainly made us stand up and take notice. The party-hard cast set up a pop-up beach in the middle of Liverpool Street Station to brighten up commuters’ mornings. They even got on the tube and posed in next to nothing.
One commuter said: “I couldn’t believe it when I walked into the station and saw the cast on the beach. It was like a mirage! It definitely brightened up my day and was a talking point when I got into the office.”
It’s great to see Geordie Shore doing it in public… now if we could only get them to stop using so much fake tan…

So in the famous words of The Sundance Kid… “Don’t you get sick of being right all the time?”
Victoria Beckham has found herself in our bad books this week after her 24 hour turn around in London. Posh Spice was in the UK for the Spice Girls reunion to launch the new musical Viva Forever. But just as soon as she had cosyed up to her old bandmates she was already back on a plane home. Becks’ missus was papped flying into Los Angeles airport, just a few hours after Posh, Ginger, Baby, Sporty and Scary had been reunited once more. Just a tad wasteful if you ask us… tsk tsk!
Here comes the science bit…
