MGI Software is to parade a top 'Page 3' girl at next week's Internet World 2000 show in a bid to make its products look more alluring.

The Canadian outfit reckons that employing Jodie's not inconsiderably assets will really make a difference.

"Page3.com and MGI Software to reveal all at Internet World!" the company teased in a press release.

But fingered by The Register, MGI was keen to play down its softcore fling.

"It's all in the best possible taste," said Jenny Hodge, MGI's communications manager.

"It's not as sordid as it sounds... we're not going to be parading topless girls around the show... she's not going to get her kit off," she said.

Apparently, she's there as a "celebrity". Jodie, 20, from Kent, is being lent to MGI as part of an agreement with Sun spin-off, Page3.com, part of Rupert Murdoch's digital outfit, News Network.

In another alliance with News Network courtesy of the FiredUp.com, MGI will also be displaying images of Posh Spice's wedding crown (valued at 120,000), a Chatila diamond and sapphire necklace inspired by the 'coeur de mer' from the film Titanic (1.2 million) and a Sunseeker yacht worth 160,000 as featured in the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough.

The items will be auctioned and the money raised donated to the Red Cross.

Asked whether it was fitting to make such a fuss over this stuff, Hodge said: "People love Posh Spice and David Beckham."

Well, that's all right then. ®
