The pledged motivation for Heather Mills' appearance on Dancing With The Stars is simple:
Her participation was "nothing to do with the money", he added. "It's just to do with the challenge and fun of it."
Well, that, we imagine, and the desperate hope that it'll make people like her a little bit more. And the money.
Let's hope it's not as terrible as her last major appearance on US TV, when she sat in for Larry King. There are still an estimated five thousand Americans still hiding from that programme behind their sofas.
