The Verdict: the press release – the members of the celebrity rape jury

My earlier post on the celebrity rape jury programme, The Verdict, has generated some interest mainly asking who the hell are these people?  Fortunately the Beeb have issued a press release for our information.  They identify the jury members as

Jeffrey Archer Former Tory politician and bestselling author – served two years in prison for perjury.
Honor Blackman Actress best known for her role in The Avengers and as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger. 
Stan Collymore Former Premiership footballer. 
Jennifer Ellison  Actress and performer who starred in Brookside and is currently appearing in Chicago in the West End.
Jacqueline Gold Chief Executive of Ann Summers and Knickerbox – regularly voted one of Britain’s most powerful and inspirational women. 
Alex James Blur band member and Independent columnist, now lives on an organic farm with his wife and three young sons. 
MegaMan Founder member of chart-topping rap collective So Solid Crew – recently acquitted of murder after three trials and spending 18 months on remand in Belmarsh Prison.
Dominic McVey 21-year-old entrepreneur – imported micro-scooters to the UK and became the country’s youngest self-made millionaire at the age of 14.
Patsy Palmer Actress, best known for her role as Bianca in EastEnders.
Sara Payne Mother who campaigned for Sarah’s law following the murder of her daughter by a known paedophile.
Michael Portillo Former Tory MP, journalist and broadcaster.
Ingrid Tarrant  Journalist and tv presenter, separated from husband Chris Tarrant.

My own description of the members differed  Needless to say I don’t expect my description or that of

to be used by the morning press.

    It says something that Honor Blackman apart, the only other name that really provokes any sense of interest is Portillo.
