Picking Liz Hurley’s Brains

‘WHAT is going on at Channel 4? On Tuesday night, we were treated to Seven Days That Shook The Spice Girls, which was only topped last night by an hour-long programme entitled Elizabeth Hurley’s Brains.

Liz always struggled on her seven times table

Biologically, it is certainly true that the model does possess a brain, but (as far as we are able to ascertain) it is very much in the singular. Legs, breasts and eyes she possesses in the plural – all of which we are used to seeing lovingly photographed in our newspapers and magazines.

But brain has she one. The brains in question in fact referred to Ms Hurley’s intelligence, sufficient apparently for Channel 4 to devote an hour of its prime time schedule to their examination.

Had we missed something? Had Ms Hurley, in between appearances in Austin Powers and the remake of Bedazzled, devised a new economic theorem that would henceforth be known as Hurley’s Law?

Had the model’s famous Versace ”safety-pin” dress given rise to a new Theory of Gravity, or had she taken a break from being the face of Estee Lauder to complete three across on the Times crossword?

None of the above, it seems. After one hour of television, we had learnt that La Hurley is not just a pretty face – in fact, as one contributor opined, she is very intelligent and has a fine business sense.

While BBC1 was showing a remarkable documentary about the World Trade Center bombings, this was Channel 4’s fascinating insight. We look forward to further offerings of this type – Albert Einstein’s Legs, for example. At least he had two of them…
