VERITY LUSH: Spending squillions to point out the blindingly obvious

Have your say

So this documentary I’m making for ITN has meant that I’ve spent a considerable amount of time looking through archive video footage of featured celebrities.

I have to admit that trawling through the endless clips of celebs being hounded by the press does make you wonder why so many people want to be famous.

There isn’t a part of me that envies the lifestyle.Although the cash and all that comes with that would be nice, when I see footage of Kim Kardashian pushing her baby daughter through a scrum of media with flashing bulbs going off left, right and centre and bodyguards surrounding her just so she can walk a few feet, I don’t think for one second that I’d want that for myself or my child.
