Who didn't eat all the pies for a change?

If you're anything like us, there's nothing you like better than when once-svelte celebrities get really fat.
We've laughed at Robbie Williams as he tries in vain to hold in his wobbly bits.
We've looked at Feltz and thought: "Size 12 my (fat) arse".
We've watched in horror as Jason from Footballers Wives gets chunkier with each passing week.
There's something about the expanding waistlines and multiple chinnage of high-profile celebrities that makes us feel better the fact that lowculture only needs to look at a plate of chips to put on half a stone.
On the other hand, we're not completely heartless, which is why we felt all warm and fuzzy inside (no, not like THAT) on seeing this picture of former Boyzoner Stephen Gately looking all toned for his role as Joseph, of Technicolour Dreamcoat fame.
Don't worry, though, we've not gone soft or anything. We bet he still sings like a chipmunk on helium.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
