Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins opened the Harrods annual January sale yesterday to boos and chants of "Shame on Katherine" from anti-fur campaigners outside the store. The 28-year-old vegetarian, wearing a strapless black and white lace dress, took on the duty a year after Leona Lewis turned down the same role (and £1 million paycheck) - apparently due to Harrods' policy of selling fur.

She was presented with a pair of diamond-encrusted Christian Louboutins by Harrods owner Mohamed Al-Fayed for her troubles (lucky girl!) and said of the protests happening outside: "Personally I do not eat meat or wear fur, but people are entitled to their opinions. I was very excited to join the sales - I am a girl's girl, so obviously this is my idea of fun." What do you think of her decision?
