Daily Mail Online is running the most bizarre "celebrity" story of the year so far. It involves Jonathan Ross's brother.

Ready? Okay, here's the headline:

Married BBC presenter Paul Ross admits he cheated with man he met dogging and snorted meow meow drug off his face - but his wife stands by him


The sub-headings are also pretty entertaining:
  • 57-year-old admitted to cheating with former English teacher Barry Olivier
  • Met at known dogging spot near to Thicket roundabout in Maidenhead
  • Says he became hooked on mephedrone snorting it six times a day
  • Was also pictured snorting the drug from Mr Olivier's face 
  • Mr Olivier says they penned notes to using pet names Puck and Pea  
A roundabout in Maidenhead? Really? 

In the unlikely event that you wish to read the full story, it can be found here.


  1. I'm gonna have to pass this one on to Martha. You talk about somebody that don't have time for foolishness...and this????

    We'll see what she has to say and report back.

  2. Martha said she should first get tested for the AIDS...and second, see if he can get her George Michael's autograph.

    1. I'm not sure whether George Michael is part of the Maidenhead dogging set...but I'm sure if anyone can get that autograph for Martha, Paul Ross can. It might help if we lie and tell him she's in a gender reassignment programme.

  3. I wonder whether Mr Ross has the same problem with his R's as his more famous brother.

  4. Ex-KCS, I very much wish I had said that. Very witty.

  5. I may have got the wrong end of the stick from the headline - I confess to not having read the full story - and am not au fait with dogging etiquette but it seems a bit much to snort meow meow off someone else's face while your wife stands by you. At the very least he ought to have considered providing her with one of those folding chairs more often used for family picnics. I recall that they were inexpensive, not heavy to carry and used to fit neatly into the car boot along with the wicker basket and assorted rugs.

    It does make you wonder what sort of upbringing the Ross boys had when one of them frequents roundabouts in Maidenhead for pink oboe-type activity and the other hangs around with bearded revolutionaries and prank calls elderly Spanish waiters.

    1. Like you, I'm not au fait with dogging etiquette, but I presume somebody has to look after the dog while all the snorting is going on.
