TV comedy recreates Princess Di’s death
Star Stories, the British TV program that dramatizes the lives of celebrities for comic effect, has filmed an episode recreating Princess Diana's death.
Previous installments of the Channel 4 show have included re-enactments of the love affairs and breakups of famous people like Madonna and Jennifer Aniston.
The newspaper said the episode shows someone playing Paul doing shots of alcohol before taking the wheel and an actor playing Prince Philip, Diana's former father-in-law, riding a scooter alongside Diana's vehicle and causing the wreck.
'Star Stories' is not making a joke out of the death of Diana and Dodi in the car crash scene -- it is satirizing the conspiracy theories that continue to surround the event, a Channel 4 spokesman told The Sun newspaper.
