Celebrities ‘may be fallible’

COMMENTS by actor Bill Roache have led the public to question the infallibility of celebrities.

The Coronation Street star’s remarks on victims of sexual abuse have raised the possibility that celebrities may not be 100% right about everything all the time.

Office worker Tom Logan said: “Normally I’d unquestioningly believe everything celebrities tell me.

“But I’m having difficulty with the suggestion that terrible things happen to us because of what we did in past lives, due to a nagging suspicion it may be utter cock.

“What’s worrying is that if a soap actor is wrong about the karmic cycle of rebirth, maybe other celebrities are wrong about things.

“What if Jeremy Clarkson is wrong about foreigners and the environment? That would mean I shouldn’t have run over that Frenchman in my 4×4.

“Or what if the Spice Girls were wrong when they said that if you believe in yourself you can achieve anything? Does that mean I’m never going to be an astronaut and have space sex with Lucy Pinder?

“Suddenly the world seems a very dark and lonely place.”

Marketing manager Nikki Hollis said: “If Tom Cruise is wrong about Scientology, then thetans and the galactic dictator Xenu might not exist and I’ll have spent the last 10 years paying a fortune to fill my head with rubbish.

“Frankly I’d expect a more rigorous approach to metaphysics from the star of Top Gun

Shop assistant Donna Sheridan said: “I hope all those celebrities weren’t wrong about lip enlargement and tattoos. Because now I look like a carp that someone’s scribbled on with a black marker pen.”

I can see clearly now the rain has gone. I can see all obstacles in my way. But I should still get that windscreen wiper fixed.

Aries (21 MAR-19 APR)
As an up-and-coming bishop, you’re gutted when the Pope uses one of your blessings in a Mass. Now people will think you nicked it from him.

Taurus (20 APRIL – 20 MAY)
Your latest project involves Russell Brand and James Corden completing a number of increasingly arduous and dangerous tasks. What television program?

Your nan fails to thank you this week for the sweater you get her with the ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ logo.

Sagittarius (22 NOV-21 DEC)
Your parents did a terrible job raising you. What? Wolves, you say? Oh, fair enough.

Capricorn (22 DEC-19 JAN)
Your growing maturity this week means you look at a pack of ‘Blacksticks’ cheese in the supermarket and don’t immediately say the word ‘fucksticks’ out loud.
