There’s been quite a lot of press recently about celebrities using the London Underground. Rihanna’s been spotted several times now. Most recently when she was papped with blonde tresses, skimpy hotpants and wearing sunglasses underground (that’s a big no no Ri-Ri – just makes you look more self conscious than you already do). This prompted a certain red-top to say that she was Tube obsessed and close to becoming a ‘greasy haired trainspotting anorak‘!
London’s own Alexandra Burke ran into trouble on the Tube as she had no permission to film her latest video there. She was pictured on an escalator smiling before officials booted her off and threatened to arrest her if she didn’t go.
But we prefer celebs who use the London Underground just like your average commuter. Take Doctor Who’s time travelling Alex Kingston for example (rumoured to be returning to the show as River Song soon). Here’s a lady who would be more at home on the Tardis than on the Tube, However, we recently spotted her travelling back from Heathrow on the Piccadilly Line. Just like the rest of us she looked pretty bored on her journey, but thankfully she didn’t have that ‘look at me, look at me’ air about her. She wasn’t even wearing shades! Annie Mole
