Girls can be so two dimensional

Not since Betty Rubble hit television screens has the Diary wished so hard that it had one less dimension.

News has arrived from Glasgow of Avastar, “the world’s first entertainment agency for virtual characters”.

The agency has four luscious lovelies on its electronic books, although from the pictures it received, the Diary can only assume that the Glasgow fashion scene is 20 years behind the rest of the world.

The girls are available for work (no, not that sort of work) and the idea of having these lovelies, rather than Jamie Oliver, on our screens advertising products can’t be a bad thing.

But where are the male models? Surely there must be a demand for a virtual Diet Coke man?
