Very sad news about TPT. I just love this story though…

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has been reliving her arrest in Switzerland for being in possession of gun shaped shoes.

The troubled it-girl turned singer was in a sharing mood on Twitter as she discussed with her followers why she was detained last year as she returned to the UK following a stay at her holiday home in Klosters.

Naming her Chanel shoes – which have fake guns as heels – the reason for seeting off security alarms.

‘Was arrested [at] Zurich airport with my Chanel killer heels in my luggage… not a good look on the x Ray!!’ the 41-year-old socialite tweeted, accompanied with a pic of the offending heels.

But it sounds like her arrest turned out to be less of an ordeal and more outrageous fun as she claims to have entertained the cops that came to shackle her.

‘I actually played backgammon with the cops for 7hrs!!’ she tweeted after, before revealing a novel way she avoids getting into trouble with the law.

‘I always send police stations coffee machines to say thank u and just in case I end up there!!’ the Zurich branch can probably expect a delivery from Nespresso soon, then.
