It’s true! Well, the rumour’s true. Apparently.
If Obama wins President Idol he will be sending none other than Oprah Winfrey to the UK as American ambassador. The world is agog. The world is ordering up extra showbizzy autumn wardrobes for the ambassador’s reception.
What next? Diana Ross as Archbishop of whatever their equivalent of Canterbury is? Chaka Khan as Head of the Supreme Court? RuPaul taking over the armed forces?
This all comes with the official stamp of the Financial Times on it, so it’s not made up like Kelly Brook going out with the Cipriani fellow (oh, did we say that out loud?)
