Perhaps startled by a close encounter with a giant soya bean, top broadcaster Vanessa Feltz put in a bravura performance in the CNBC hospitality tent at Wimbledon last week.
She swept into the marquee with a flourish, decrying the rain that had suspended play, and explained she was doing the rounds of the hospitality tents after growing tired of the BBC’s.
Meanwhile her companion, personal trainer Dennis, coralled the bewildered guests into an impromptu game of charades, as Ms Feltz sidled up to various bystanders and made it known that she could organise celebrity “favours” for them if they so wished.
Then, after a couple of refreshing glasses of Pimms, La Feltz whooshed off into the ether, leaving the tent in a state of discombobulation.
Little wonder they soon after ran out of alcohol and had to send for more.
