Tube Photo of the Week

Kara Tointon from Strictly Come Dancing in her curlers and dressing gown at Charing Cross London Undeground station. The mind boggles.

Basically some bright spark thought it would be a good idea to get the ex EastEnder to pose at the disused Jubilee Line platform at Charing Cross to promote
BT's WiFi service & a new iPad App.

She's pictured leaning casually against the roundel ready to use BT broadband at one of the 2 million free WiFi hotspots. As you probably know, last year a trial hotspot was introduced at Charing Cross station.

Ianvisits who kindly sent me the picture doubts that WiFi is actually working on the disused platform anyway.

Kara's actually no stranger to being pictured in weird situations on the London Underground. In 2007 when she was playing pregnant Dawn in EastEnders, her waters broke on the Tube.

EastEnders Tube Baby?

So it's good to see she's recovered nicely from the incident, although still not enough to realise that people normally wear more clothes on their Tube commute.

Next week expect to see Kerry Katona posing at Aldwych disused station wearing fluffy slippers & pyjamas promoting an iPad app for Iceland.
