Ritchie show explores crime spree

Former Page 3 girl Samantha Fox went on a pickpocketing spree in a London bar as part of a new TV show created by Madonna's husband Guy Ritchie.

Fox tried to steal as many wallets as she could without being stopped as part of a stunt for the Five show Swag.

The show, which films people being tempted into committing illegal acts, is described by its makers as a "cross between Police Camera Action and Trigger Happy TV".

Each half-hour instalment includes a Celebrity Crimes section in which famous faces test the tolerance of the general public.

"It's amazing to see just how much celebrities can get away with," said a Five spokesman.

The eight-part series begins on 23 March.
