Sally Bercow appears to be slightly annoyed at reports that her column in the Daily Star Sunday has been shelved.

The controversial Labour campaigner - and wife of the Speaker of the Commons John Bercow - was reported to be one of three columnists to lose their gig at the paper.

TV chatshow host Matthew Wright and the former Liverpool footballer Graeme Souness are the other two writers to have their columns axed.

Sally's Twitter page on Saturday morning appeared to confirm the report in the Guardian from Friday night that her weekly take on politics will no longer be gracing the newsstands.

Her column has been quite short-lived, having only started in September of last year.

But Sally appears to be philosophical about being the apparent loser in the shakeup at the paper.

The Daily Star Sunday recently hired the Guido Fawkes team - Paul Staines and Harry Cole - to run a column, which launched on the same day as the Sun on Sunday.

Sally is thought to have other TV projects in the pipeline, possibly involving another appearance on Channel 5, which along with the Daily Star is owned by Richard Desmond.

The Labour campaigner - who has tried to win council seats in London at the most recent elections - made a short-lived appearance on Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother last year, an appearance which her husband was said to be uneasy about.

Reports circulated last year that she was also writing a bodice-ripping novel about the saucier side of parliament - but so far no book deal has emerged.
