A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exit

One of the things that we were nudged about via our new tip button and email (thanks Heather!) was the story of Hoff turned away from Wimbledon - something which there is now some confusion/spin over:

The All England Club has denied press reports that a "drunken" David Hasselhoff had to be removed from the Wimbledon tennis championships. Security guards "knew nothing" of the claims, said a spokeswoman, adding the former Baywatch star "wasn't ejected". He tried to enter the press centre while searching for Court 13 but was not correctly accredited, she added.

This is what our anonymous tipster had to say:

a pal of mine is in security, and he claims that he uttered the immortal words when challenged over his rowdy behaviour... "Don't you know who I am? I'm the Hoff!!". What a fanny.

Quite. Our advice is to try again tomorrow, but this time in the persona of Garthe Knight (the handsome chap pictured above). No one would dare turn Garthe away from the gates in case he had Goliath as backup.

Still, at least it gives the press something to report on besides the bloody tennis.
