Carla Bruni To Be The New Face Of Ginsters

CARLA Bruni, the incredibly hot wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, is to be the new face of Ginsters savoury treats.

The Cornish firm said the former supermodel and singer would bring a touch of continental finesse to its irresistible range of bakes, pastries and spicy tortilla wraps.

The first television commercial will feature Bruni as a plumber, driving down the A34, when she is suddenly overwhelmed by an insatiable desire for a Ploughman's Roll and a Buffet Bar.

She pulls in at a petrol station near Didcot, runs into the shop, tears the wrapper from the Ginsters savouries and starts devouring them.

A member of staff approaches, but soon backs off when she snarls at him with the sound of an angry tiger. The commercial ends with the slogan, 'Imagine Smearing a Cheese and Onion Slice Across Carla Bruni's Bum'.

Bruni said she first dreamed of working with Ginsters while writing her third album, Bring Me a Steak and Mushroom Pie.

The French first lady said last night: "Whenever Nicolas and I travel to meet foreign heads of state, I always ensure ze fridge on our official plane is stocked with at least two dozen Mexican Spicy Chicken Pasties. I eat zem cold."

She added: "I have to admit zat when I attended ze official banquet at Buckingham Palace I could not finish my dinner because I had spent all afternoon is ze bath with a copy of TV Quick and an enormous pile of scotch eggs."

Elvis Tried To Eat My Mum, Claims Tommy Steele

ELVIS Presley made a secret visit to Britain during which he tried to eat the elderly mother of British singing star Tommy Steele, it was revealed last night.

Steele said the King of Rock and Roll visited London in 1958 after learning of the East End delicacy of steamed whelks in a bucket of gin.

He said: "As soon as he got off the plane we headed straight for whelk district. 'Course it didn't take long before they ran out of whelks. At one point I thought he was gonna eat the buckets.

"Any road up, I says to him, 'Elvis, my old mum would leave to meet ya'."

"There she was, sittin' in the front room, next to the fire, just like always. And Elvis, well he couldn't have been lovelier. 'Honour to make your acquaintance m'am', he says.

"Then he turns to me and goes, 'Tommy, I never knew your momma was gonna be so big and tasty lookin'. You got any barbecue sauce?'

"I laughed it off and went into the kitchen to make us all a cuppa. Before you know it, I hear me old mum shoutin' 'Tommy! Tommy! Your mate Elvis is eatin' me foot!'

"I says to him, 'Elvis, leave it out', and he let go of the foot and we all sat down and had a lovely cuppa tea."

Steele added: "Then Elvis, crowd pleaser that he was, picked up my old guitar, sang us a few verses of Wooden Heart and then ate the cat. Happy days."
