It should come as little surprise that the MD of Vizzavi UK was in the audience of TV "talent show", Pop Idol, on Saturday night – after all, Vizzavi does sponsor the programme.

However, according to one vulture-eyed reader, Geraldine Wilson was picked from the audience to ask a question and used it to launch an "eloquent" attack one of the judges, Simon Cowell.

"Can this be right?" we asked Vizzavi.

That's right, confirmed our Vizzavi spokeswoman, who insisted Ms Wilson received no special treatment at being singled out from the crowd to give him a piece of her mind.

"So, why exactly did she have a pop at Simon 'Mr Nasty' Cowell anyway?" we asked.

"She wanted to know whether the voting was fixed against Gareth," replied our Vizzavi spokeswoman.

"Gareth? Which one's Gareth," we asked.

"The cute one," she said.
