That "cry for help" in full

Those pictures of Amy Winehouse in today's Sun are proper chilling, aren't they? Lucky there was a photographer from paparazzi agency Big Pictures outside her house at 5am to capture her "anguished stumbling in the street", or the "pals, already worried for her safety" would not know they needed to be "horrified".

But what's this in a quote from her spokesperson? "Amy had been asleep and heard a noise. She went outside to investigate. She didn't realise the time."

You know, it almost sounds as if a photographer decided to kick over a dustbin outside the house of a vulnerable young woman living alone, just to be able to get a picture of her when she freaked out and came outside to see what was going on, doesn't it? And actually, doesn't that picture look rather like a frightened 24-year-old pleading with someone to go away and leave her alone?

I'm sure it wasn't like that though. I mean, it's not like the Sun would collude with something like that and then try and dress it up as a sympathetic intervention. No way.

We may safely conclude that no Sun snapper is likely to catch Christopher Biggins semi-naked in the street at 5am or whatever - not nearly vulnerable or sexy enough. Indeed, even when presented with the opportunity of photographing Biggins kissing a 44 year old man in a public place, the Sun fails to run the pic - as was the case when he emerged from the jungle camp the other day to be greeted by his partner with a lippy kiss.
