Oh dear, oh dear. Another day, another data security issue in celebsville. Following on from news of BBC Top Gear car hack Jeremy Clarkson’s touchingly naive approach to data security, publishing his banking details in a newspaper column, now another esteemed BBC Jeremy – Jeremy Paxman – has got his knickers in a twist, so to speak.

The pants in question come from the nation’s favourite underwear supplier, Marks & Spencer. In a leaked private email to M&S boss Stuart Rose, Paxman claims that M&S “pants no longer provide adequate support”.

Neither, it seems, do Paxman’s IT advisors. Private email? No such thing!
