Stick One On a Celebrity
- Council encourages gum-attacks on stars

STICKING one on an annoying celebrity is to be offered free of charge by Ealing Council. Stars Peter Andre, Jordan and Shane Richie, and others who get on many people's nerves, are to the targets of the campaign in the west London borough.

Fortunately for the celebrities in question, they won't be there in person to field the attacks, nor will those attacks be in the form of punches on the nose. Instead, posters of the stars are to be used to encourage chewers to deposit their finished gum somewhere other than the pavement.

The gum-encrusted posters will be removed at least once a week and new sheets put up in their place. Trials of the innovative scheme have already yielded positive results in Bournemouth and Luton.
