Russell Brand's "comely" fan

The Indy's guest media diarist Guy Adams reports that a certain "comely broadsheet columnist" went to bed with Russell Brand after being sent to interview the satyr last February. Adams refrains from naming the woman or newspaper because he's a gent.

It was in fact the Telegraph's Bryony Gordon.

A Telegraph reader of her recent piece on Heather Mills McCartney asked: "Why is this drivel appearing in my cherished newspaper? It's just page-filler nonsense. Who hired Bryony Gordon, and why?"

I can't answer all that but the fact she's the daughter of Sunday Mirror columnist Jane Gordon and aged 25 will not have been unhelpful in these anti-ageist and meritocratic times.

Speaking of drivel appearing in cherished spaces, let us hope that you yourself, Madame, are shortly revealed in all your glory. First, the Girl With a One Track Mind; then Bryony Wossname; soon ... the Seer With the One Track Crystal Ball.

My identity must perforce remain a secret. Rumours may fly about but nothing can be proven, I deny everything, I lie through my teeth. A certain newspaper is employing illegal means to find out who I am; they should be warned that Madame Arcati's revenge is swift and terrible upon all trangressors. Every story I tell is just the tip of the iceberg.
