Celebrity (com)motion

posted by David | 1606 GMT |
TV's Sian Lloyd is basking in the glow of parliamentary recognition for her latest accolade.

Sian is "weather presenter of the year" in the annual television and radio industries club awards.

A Liberal Democrat backbencher has tabled a Commons motion congratulating her for winning a category which, the MP says, reflects the "world class standards achieved in the British media".

The motion, tabled by the Montgomery MP Lembit Opik, "particularly applauds the winner of the award for weather presenter of the year".

What the motion doesn't say is that the winner of that award is getting married later this year - to Lembit Opik, who curiously does not appear to have declared an interest before sponsoring the motion.

Who says you need to read Hello! magazine to keep up to date with all the latest news on Wales's top celebrity couple?!
