Paper Monitor

11:29 UK time, Wednesday, 11 August 2010

A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.

All together now:

"And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
whether I'm right or wrong..."

There's your earworm for the day.

No, no need to thank Paper Monitor - it's Mr Robbie Williams to whom you owe a debt of gratitude for bringing this delightful ditty to the attention of your humble columnist once again.

When the former Take That dancer wed actress Ayda Field in a secretive - read "sold to Hello!" - ceremony at the weekend, on the soundtrack was that traditional wedding favourite Angels.

Only difference was, he sang it himself, reports the Daily Mirror, flicking through its own copy of Hello! Bless.

No carping at the back - it's easy to criticise other people's weddings, and if your pets were well behaved enough to wear flower collars and walk down the aisle, well, no doubt you'd want to do the same.

Such a stunt is indeed a gift to the headline writers, with this in the Sun: "Robbie bridesmaids were pack of dogs... But bride looked so beautiful"

No mention of the nuptials in the Daily Express, but given the paper is stablemates with Hello!'s arch rival OK!, no surprise there.
