‘IF we locked people up to spare us from their publicity stunts, former S-Clubber Rachel Stevens would be another one looking at a spell in chokey right now.

”Do you want me to sing?”

And last night the Star tells us that ”raunchy” Rachel caused ”royal blushes” as she pranced around stage at the Royal Variety Performance with whips and chains.

”The Royals glanced away uncomfortably when the performance turned too blue,” says the paper – although, from what we know about life inside the Palace, that was probably because the act was so tame.

Why these onlookers (all of whom sound suspiciously like Star journalists) persist in the idea that the Queen is shocked by the latest wannabe trying to grab a bit of publicity we don’t know.
