SPRING is usually the time to watch flowers bloom into fabulous cascades of scent and colour.

SPRING is usually the time to watch flowers bloom into fabulous cascades of scent and colour.

This year though, it is a chance to observe the celebrity career of young Henry Conway blossom before the lenses of Britain's carnivorous paparazzi.

The son of disgraced Old Bexley and Sidcup MP, Derek Conway, adorned the pages of newspapers and magazines yet again this week by posing for 'provocative' snaps in women's clothing.

Readers of high-brow Tatler magazine may have dropped their monocles when they saw pictures of the happily and openly gay young Conway dressed in a corset.

The 25-year-old told the magazine of his support for his father, who was thrown out the Conservative Party for his opaque account-keeping.

Good to see a son proudly supporting his father, and not in the slightest way cashing in on the scandal.

We just wonder what the have-a-go-celebrity will do next to get his next delicious five minutes of the limelight.

We think Mr Conway is surely prime meat for this summer's Celebrity Big Brother. It's the next logical step on his career ladder.

Perhaps Conway senior could even enter the house as a surprise guest halfway through.

It's not unthinkable - the former boss of the Cats Protection League could purr like a cat in the same way the lovable George Galloway did when he entered the house.

Still, the dashing young Conway is still no Madonna yet, even if he does dress like her. The Diary is relieved to report that he doesn't even have a Wikipedia entry... yet. Watch this space.
