Liberty X-Men

‘WHO are the two most redundant words in showbiz?

‘Back a bit more, Kevin. And you, whatsyername…’

“I do,” uttered by Jennifer Lopez as she pledges her future to yet another husband?

“Andrew Ridgeley”?

No, the answer is “Kevin” and “Tony” – the names of the two blokes who can sometimes be seen in the background on Liberty X videos.

Even OK! struggles to remember their names as it catches up with bandmates Michelle Heaton and Jessica Taylor celebrating their joint birthday party “with their famous friends”.

In fact, it appears that the magazine has completely forgotten Tony’s name, failing to give him a single mention in the whole of the eight-page feature.

That wouldn’t be so bad if he weren’t ranked lower down the celebrity pecking order than Marco from Big Brother, James Fox from Fame Academy, John from The Salon and Andy Scott-Lee from the Job Centre.

In truth, Andy only gets in because he is Michelle’s boyfriend, although we are sure that great things are round the corner for this twice-failed star.

“He’s written and recorded some songs and they sound great,” Michelle says.

“He just needs a deal now. There aren’t many deals being offered at the moment for various reasons, but he’s just a money pot waiting to happen.”

All he needs to do is find his very own George Michael…’
