It's one of those stories that has the ring of inevitability about it: Lembit Opik to star in Celebrity Big Brother.
Alas, sources close to the man himself say it's totally untrue. This comes as a slight blow to those of us for whom Lembit is good for trade, and possibly an even bigger blow for those Lib Dems who rely on newspaper stories of varying veracity to fill their blogs.
Mind you, on past form I'll wait for the next edition of Hello! magazine before discounting the prospect entirely.
