You're not going to see this judging panel for the Booker 

Evaluating the shortlists for the WH Smith Book Award:

Journalist Martin Bashir, known to all for looking on in horror as Michael Jackson rhapsodized about the joys of sharing his bed with children.

Fergie, the Duchess of York, famous for toe-sucking and weight-watching.

Robson Green, an actor who is a lot shorter in person than he appears to be (shared an elevator with him at the Harrogate Festival and he barely came up to my shoulder, and I'm 5'7".)

Linda Barker, of "Changing Rooms" fame.

Janet Street-Porter, editor-at-large of the Independent.

I wonder what the judging panel of a similarly themed People's Choice Book Award in the US (which, thank heavens, doesn't seem to exist) would be....?
