Miss World, a horse of the year show with one eye on world peace, is back. No need to applaud
Friday 27 November 1998
THEY SAID there would be no swimsuits. This was going to be the new, cool, post-modern Miss World. No swimsuits and stilettos! They were so yesteryear, so old beauty pageant, so sexist. And Miss World was anything but sexist. Obviously. Just listen to the show's producer: "Swimsuits on stage, now that was always really offensive. That smacked of cattle market - or even worse, some awful 1950s seaside beauty contest."

THE PLEASURE of LWT's "Audience with" strand lies less in the spotlighted celeb, than in spotting which B-listers are going to get their faces on screen. An Audience with the Bee Gees (Saturday) was wall-to-wall soap stars. Bianca from EastEnders danced round her handbag, accompanied by Walford neighbours Ricky and Mark, Fiona and Judy from Coronation Street, and Jackie Dixon out of Brookie.

At a bus stop outside a Tube station, the Wino Lady approaches. I must look like a soft touch, because I spend an inordinate amount of my spare time in conversation with beggars. Wino Lady is wearing a sweatshirt that from a distance looks like an exotic piece of tie-dye but close up proves merely to be scattered with stains - ketchup, oil, bits of street - and aa pair of tracksuit bottoms with the knees out. Her hair is held up in a ponytail with what appears, appropriately enough, to be a Pony Club tie. She stands over me, as I am sitting on the pavement with my back against a pub, and grins blearily down at me.
