Tv Bosses Battle Over Mills' Story
A massive bidding war has broken out over the rights to HEATHER MILLS' first TV interview since her split from SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY. British broadcaster BBC and commercial rival ITV are both flaunting their biggest interviewers in the hope of obtaining what could be the most sensational TV interview since MARTIN BASHIR interviewed DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES for the BBC in 1995. In their attempts to woo the 38-year-old former model, ITV are in talks with two of the UK's most experienced interviewers: inoffensive chat show host MICHAEL PARKINSON or legendary newscaster SIR TREVOR MACDONALD. An ITV spokesman says, "We're looking at Parkinson, but most probably Sir Trevor, because Heather has expressed admiration for his methods in the past. It's sure to be a massive ratings-puller." The BBC are hoping key news anchor FIONA BRUCE will be enough to tempt Mills to reveal all the details of the couple's four-year marriage on air.
