Paris Hilton correctly identifies UK Prime Minister

'I had lunch at his restaurant yesterday'

Paris Hilton has pulled off a bit of a blinder at the London launch of her ITV2 show Paris Hilton's British Best Friend by fingering Gordon Ramsay as Prime Minister, the Telegraph reports.

The talented amateur grumble vid performer responded to a request to name the PM with a confident: "I had lunch at his restaurant yesterday - Gordon Ramsay."

We're sure the foul-mouthed pan botherer is delighted to have been promoted from the kitchen to head of the Cabinet, and equally certain that Amy Winehouse will be relieved to learn she was not considered for the role of Hilton's Brit top chum.

Quizzed as to whether the copiously-inked lovechild of Helen Shapiro and Keith Richards had been "considered" to participate in the programme, Hilton said: "I love her music but I don't know if I could handle that lifestyle." Instead, she insisted she'd been looking for someone "who had a fun personality, someone who was real, someone who looked like they could be a lot of fun, someone I could trust. Someone who enjoys life."

Just who that fortunate mere mortal is will be revealed in due course. As of Thursday, excited viewers will be able to see 11 women and a lone chap* battle for Paris's affections - desperately performing "tasks" in an attempt to avoid the weekly boot which sees one contestant shown the door with a perfunctory: "Talk to you never - TTYN!"

Hilton claims that she and the eventual winner, whose name is being kept tightly under wraps, really are "best friends". She said pretty much the same about Brittany Flickinger, who won MTV's My New BFF, although she unceremoniously dumped her at the Sundance film festival in favour of sucking face with MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe.

In the end, Hilton did demonstrate that her time in London while filming British Best Friend was not a complete washout in the acquisition of new knowledge department, and she confirmed she now knew the meaning of "minger" and "fit", even if she can't tell a right pair of Gordos apart. ®

Bootnote

*Gay, we gather, because when filming on the show started "straight men were banned from competing by her boyfriend at the time Benji Madden".

Madden's fears were, of course, completely unfounded, cos our Paris has only had sex with a couple of people - probably true if you consider the "Clinton Lewinsky Defence" a legitimate argument for carnal deniability.
