Sir Cliff Richard wins a phallic victory against the BBC and remains left out of pocket; elsewhere the condescening crooner went overboard with a menu that included three salmon dishes
When he’s not crying on his kitchen floor or observing the yellow ribbons on his gates, the sanctimonious Christian crooner Sir Cliff Richard is likely to be found bleating with the old harpies on ITV1’s Loose Women.
A ‘bestie’ of ‘In-Glorious’ Gloria Hunniford – a presenter of the aforementioned tawdry television show – and a man photographed with the paedophile Lord Boothby on several occassions, Sir Cliff, it was revealed today, has had his damages award against the BBC increased from £850,000 to £2 million. Sadly for him, his costs amounted – he somewhat innocuously claims – to £4.5 million, so he’s still left £2.5 million out of pocket. We say: Diddums.
Elsewhere recently, someone called Joy Forbes-Wake organised an event bizarrely named “The Diamond +1 Summer Ball” in honour of this eternal pest.
According to an email newsletter from photographer Edward Lloyd, “friends and fans flocked” together and “greeted [Sir Cliff] with a standing ovation.” Gloria Hunniford reportedly “got involved in the fun” and the “hero… took to the stage for an energetic performance of his hits.” Fans allegedly “danced to the well-known and loved music” and “a wonderful evening, full of friendship, enthusiasm and music” was had by all.
The menu for the night included: “A delicious dinner of Royal Lancaster trio of salmon with cured salmon, smoked salmon and a salmon fish cake with sour cream and caviar, followed by Dingley Deli roasted pork loin with salt baked beetroot, celeriac and potato gratin, and finishing with raspberry cheesecake with chocolate ice cream and a raspberry macaron.” Talk about pushing the boat out; it sounds like the chef went over the Cliff.
