Someone is moving z-list wannabes to the d-list - 'd' for dead, that is. Several truly gruesome murders have occurred and the public and media are utterly hooked - proving that for those who are desperate to be famous, dying really can be a great career move.

Despite having brains, looks and tight leather trousers, Jessie is in trouble.
