Here's Charlotte Church stuffing crisps into her face for a new Walkers ad campaign, due to debut on TV this evening.
It's strange to think, is it not, that less than a year ago Charlotte Church looked as if she might save pop.
She had a great first single, her vocal talents were beyond question, and she spoke her mind. As it turned out, Charlotte failed to get any of her subsequent three singles into the Top 10 and her album disappeared without a trace, her 'pop voice' turned out to be no more distinctive than that of your average ex‑S Clubber, and Charlotte's 'frank views' quickly became boring, meaning that her interviews are now as tedious and predictable as those given by the popstars Charlotte cluelessly pits herself against.
Hilariously, you can imagine that she still thinks she's better than Girls Aloud.
You can watch the Walkers ad online at MediaGuardian.co.uk (you might have to register, but it'll probably be on YouTube shortly).
