Celebrity MMR

‘AFTER a story of biting arms, we now hear a tale of a shot in one.

Three jabs or one?

Or, rather, a non-shot, since the story in the Mirror is of how Charlie Sheen and his estranged wife, Denise Richards, rowed about giving their child the MMR jab.

Richards wanted their couple’s two-year-old son Sam to have the three-in-one injection for measles, mumps and rubella.

And Sheen, worried about its possible links to autism, did not.

A source says that the pair argued in front of medics to such a degree that one doctor refused to work with them.

And this played a part in Denise and Charlie’s separation, – earlier this month it was announced that they were divorcing.

Sad for them, indeed, and just rotten for baby Sam, but at last it seems the MMR debate has a much-needed celebrity face.

And that can only be a good and positive thing…

Paul Sorene is the Anorak’
