SERVES me right, I suppose, for arriving for my hospital outpatient appointment without buying a newspaper first. So there I was, in the waiting room, unable to use my phone to browse the web, with the only available reading material being an old copy of OK! magazine.
So I’m brousing its glossy pages full of pictures of celebrities and, of course, “celebrities”, when I come across the jewell in the crown: Kerry Katona’s OK! Diary. It’s genius. This passage in particular caught my eye:
Heath Ledger has to win an Oscar for his role in The Dark Knight
It goes on:
I haven’t seen it yet…
Hmm. Not that much of an endorsement, then, is it?
…but I’ve read some reviews and apparently he’s the best Joker yet.
Best Joker yet, eh? So the best since, well, since Jack Nicholson in 1989. And before that, of course, there was Cesar Romero…
So, assuming the Academy is paying due attention to Kerry, that posthumous Oscar looks a cert.
And she signed off with this: “Don’t miss my brilliant column exclusively in OK! every week.”
Oh, I won’t, Kerry, don’t you worry. (I wonder if she’s watched The Dark Knight yet? Probably wait for it to come out on DVD…)
