Topic Of Cancer

‘“STARS ARE BACKING HER EVERY WAY,” shouts the Sun, as they return to the biggest story of the week – their pink wristbands in support of Kylie’s battle with breast cancer.


Ordinary people can “show they care” by buying the bands from the Sun’s 60p-a-minute phoneline, and by sending texts and emails to the paper.

Celebrities, on the other hand, get a nice colour picture of themselves.

Cherie Blair is shown wearing hers – and given that it’s the first day of the campaign, she probably got it from a bona fide source, rather than eBay, where she often shops.

Nell McAndrew is shown too, as are Lorraine Kelly, Wendi Peters and Maxine Carr. Oh, hang on, forget the last one.

“Out of 20,000 bands, 10,000 are still available,” says the paper. Although if all you want to do is show you care, you could just wrap a piece of pink paper round your wrist and spend the pound on fags.
