Desperately Seeking Pauline

NEWS that EastEnders miserabislist Pauline Fowler is to hang up her dishcloth marks the end of an era and, perhaps, the start of new chapter for Madonna.

Looking at the Star’s picture of the singer/actress (Madonna) sporting a new crop of platinum hair, the suggestion is that she is already getting into character.

But she will not have it all her own way. And while husband Guy Ritchie gives his ‘trouble and pears’ a quick learnin’ in Mockney English, the Sun introduces the competition.

Alongside a shot of Madonna as Pauline, the Sun produces a picture of the original thing. But reading on we relise that we are mistaken. That’s not Pauline, harridan of the laundrette – it’s Sharon Stone.

And she might not be the only one on the casting couch hoping to appear in the BBC’s flagship soap. The Mirror, which produces ten pictures of Madonna’s changing looks since 1984, says her new hairstyle has more than a hint Victoria Beckham about it.

The competition to be the new maven of the laundrette promises to be intense. And bring a little glamour into all our lives…
