Kylie Minogue is, according to the Star, the best-seller for the fourth year in a row but Williams is second ahead of the girls from Hollyoaks and the boys from Busted.

Others in the Top 10 include Jennifer Ellison, who celebrates by posing for the Star in her underwear, Abi Titmuss and Kelly Brook.

There’s no place, however, for Coronation Street’s Jimmi Harkishin – possibly because his fans tend to just stick the calendar up their shirt and walk out of the shop without paying.

But the news in the Sun is that the man who plays Dirty Dev has been sent by soap bosses to rehab, where he can enjoy reading how he bedded redhead Kim Lee after a five-hour coke binge.

And while on the subject of drugs, Robbie Williams is busy telling the Mirror how he’d still be drinking and taking drugs now if they didn’t make him fat.
