The pair, linked by a certain duo of football-playing brothers, are bitter rivals in the dog-eat-dog (no offence intended, ladies) world of celebrity hangers-on.

The needling started a week ago, when Imogen tweeted of Celebrity Big Brother: “Just watching cbb catch up. I love Natalie Cassidy and her task.’Wag’ Nicola McLean is a fake. And as for the other one…….”

Natasha obviously took this to mean her and tweeted back: “As for the other one what?”

Lads’ mag fave Imogen didn’t reply to her rival, bur did tweet a list of not-too-subtle hashtags, including #shittingonyourowndoorstep , #keepingitinthefamily and #potkettleblack.

Natasha, in typically high-minded and witty fashion, replied: “*botheredface*”.

With intellectual prowess like this, is it any wonder that multi-million-earning footie stars can’t get enough of them?

Here are some more thoughts on ‘celebrities’ and Twitter.
