All the gossip from the Guinness 250th Birthday celebrations

*T4 presenter Rick Edwards isn’t a fan of Mariah Carey if his comments at the Guinness celebrations are anything to go by! He told me: “I went to watch the Oprah Winfrey show and she was on. Fortunately I left before she started rubbing her fragrance on her breasts. Just the thought makes me feel a little sick.” Ouch!

*I asked David Gray what it was like being beaten in the album chart battle by Peter Andre and Dame Vera Lynn last week. She snapped: “I’ll be here long after that f***er has gone.” I think he meant Peter Andre.

*Estelle’s new album is well on it’s way to being released the singer tells me. Speaking at Arthur’s Day she said: “The last album took four years to complete and release but this one will be out within a couple of years from when we started.” The star, who nowadays lives in New York, tells me she’s upping her style for the promotional tour of her as yet to be titled single. She added: “I’m channeling Bianca Jagger this time around. She’s got great style. I won’t be doing a Lady Gaga though – I did mad outfits last time around so that’s old for me.” Ewwww.

*Alek Wek summed up my thoughts entirely on London fashion Week and this loborious debate over the size of models. Speaking at the Guinness celebrations she said: “As models, we’re like roses. We come in all sorts of different shapes, sizes, religions and colours. It’s out job to represent the designers clothing.”
