Jenkins Fumes Over Political Endorsement

Welsh soprano KATHERINE JENKINS is "absolutely furious" after her local member of parliament (MP) claimed she was endorsing his re-election campaign.

The 24-year-old opera star was shocked to find her image on an election leaflet for Welsh secretary PETER HAIN, who represents Jenkins' native Neath, and has forced the minister to apologise.

Her agent says, "No permission has been sought or given for this picture to be used. This is tawdry. I've spoken to Hain's agent who says he is anxious to get hold of Katherine to explain.

"But she is not interested in an explanation. What she wants is an apology."

Hain responds, "The photo was taken at a local event. Katherine is from Neath and we are all very proud of her. I am sorry that this has become an issue."
