Another PR twist in 'Shilpa-gate' saga

Diary would like to move on from the 'Shilpa-gate' debacle that defined this year's Celebrity Big Brother. But the story refuses to die.

It turns out that the former PR man for Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has defected to her former nemesis.

According to the Daily Star, Jazz Barton is now part of the team overseeing Jade Goody's tour of India.

Diary wonders if this brazen switch of allegiances has been prompted by a disagreement with Shetty. Could it have something to do with the fact that Shetty's family was last heard threatening to take Barton to court over contract disagreements?

But confusingly, Goody's agent John Noel Management insists: 'He doesn't work for us.'

We do hope this saga keeps going. At least until the next BB, when something equally mind-numbing takes its place.
