Sources close to the Mirror told Guido yesterday that the breaking of their scoop was not part of some conspiracy to get Clarke and Hewitt out of the limelight. They spent a lot of time with the angry boyfriend. When they put it to Prezza it was blankly denied. He lied when caught. Little did Prezza know that the Mirror had certain legal difficulties proving what it knew to be true, after all, the diaries where not the boyfriend’s property. But Prezza caved in much to the shock of the Mirror team, who were by this time “banging our heads against the walls”. Media students will note that the scoop was not broken by the Mirror’s lobby journalists.
If Prezza had stuck to his story and Tracey had kept quiet, Guido is assured that the Mirror would not have been able to run with the story, despite the diaries and photos. He would not have been humiliated about his tiny todger.
Tracey has already received offers for Love Island and Endemol’s Big Brother. She will easily make a million if she wants, as a sort of Chantelle/Abi Titmuss/Rebecca Loos tabloid hybrid. Welcome to “reality” Tracey.
