CELEBRITY SPOTTING is a favourite pastime of TS. When out being wined and dined by members of the profession - another favourite pastime - TS was taken aback to lose the interest of its esteemed dinner guests when they became decidedly distracted by the arrival of a well-coiffured young man. That man was Michael Bublé.

Not wishing to knock the undoubted charms of Canada's favourite son, TS could understand the reaction of its female PR guest but was left a somewhat confused and dismayed by the apparent excitement of the married men among us, who just had cut TS off in order to have their photo taken with Mr Bublé.

TS has promised to keep the identity of its guests secret to protect them from their own eternal shame. But rest assured, they know who they are.
