um, Bardot anyone ? They have kicked on despite being ditched by the
fame-hungry red head Kate, who chose to selfishly pursue her acting career,
which sadly(?) stopped before it started when the stage production of Hair
she was meeant to star in, got the chop. Must be a red head thing.

Now Bardot have been left to plough on regardless, appearing on The Panel
and being asked about their thoughts on Lennon & McCartney, only to reply
with "I haven't heard of them" (seriously). Now Kate would never have let
that happen.
