    ďAfter a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion. To try and prove this I came with an idea. I blocked everyone from viewing my Instagram stories except one account.
    ďOver the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper. And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about basement flooding in my new house.
    Cunning.

    I liked you a lot Coleen and Iím so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when Iím heavily pregnant. Iím disgusted that Iím even having to deny this.Ē

    I imagine trying to stay hidden from the police is more difficult when your head is melted.

    I didnít realise a corporation with a beef could put you in prison (or a YOI in this case). Scary.

    I think they were within reason, especially as they already had performed an injunction against him climbing the fucking thing. It's dangerous and he was putting other people at risk here.

    And if he falls, even if he doesn't hit anyone, it'll fuck up people witnessing it and rescue workers etc. There are reasons why this is illegal and he knew it was.

    I am not sure I have any idea why anybody would think to test whether you can de-stress rats teaching them to drive tiny cars, but I feel weirdly appreciative that somebody made the effort/

    It's all fun and games until they stick them in traffic jams with tiny little horns to beep.

    @RichDC If a Romanian circus ever stole my chihuahua, I would definitely drink a litre of vodka and pass out in some bushes near a prison in the middle of the night.
