It's come to the light that VIP tickets for Britney Spears' London O2 gigs, originally priced at £100, were being flogged in a manic fashion for the grand sum of £2 last weekend.

A source told The Sun: "The shows on the weekend still had a number of unsold tickets by the end of last week. Organisers were mystified as to why (because she's effectively a miming shell?), but really did not want a bare arena floor. It could send out a message that the star's run in London hasn't been a complete success... They all went, but taking a £98 hit on each sale wasn't particularly pleasing for anyone concerned."
Super. Maybe now they'll stop flogging the husk of a show pony with a sequined suspender belt.
