Prisoners, politicians and players do it

The art of writing love letters may not be dead, but it might be in need of a spin-doctor. Free association brings the words "stalker" and "sleaze" to mind. It also invokes such high-profile correspondents as MP Jerry Hayes (who favoured House of Commons notepaper for his missives to the doe-eyed boy researcher Paul Stone) and Darius Guppy, the high- class convict who carried on a besotted daily correspondence with his wife, Patricia, while banged up for fraud.

Sarah Thomas is leaving school to model. Good move?

In her autumn half-term, 16-year-old Sarah Thomas earned pounds 6,500 a day on the New York catwalks. Her intention was merely to dabble in modelling as a way of earning money in the school holidays. Some dabbling. Thomas quickly found herself being offered the new Cover Girl cosmetics campaign, a post previously filled by the Danish/Peruvian supermodel, Helena Christensen. Despite a rumoured six-figure sum, the girl from Norwich turned it down, determined that nothing should interfere with her school work.

WHY ARE THEY FAMOUS? NO 10: BROOKE SHIELDS

Main Claim: Unearthly infantile beauty with a soft porn patina. Brooke Shields was the ultimate symbol of American hypocrisy - soft porn starlet and born again virgin, exploited and guarded by her puritanical Rottweiler of a mother. Baby Brooke modelled in ads. Pre-pubescent Brooke was photographed in a bath in nothing on but her make-up. She has been amazingly famous for amazingly little ever since.

Henman gets a grip on reality

Sixty years of hurt, the Challenge Cup's still gleaming, three stripes on his shirt, but Tim Henman insists that dreaming is not for him. Henman, the last surviving British competitor in the men's singles at Wimbledon after completing his third-round win over his compatriot Luke Milligan yesterday, is being asked to take over from the England football team and bring tennis home for the first time since the last of Fred Perry's three championship wins in 1936.
