And finally… what’s law got to do with it?

Rock and roll star Tina Turner has launched legal proceedings against a tribute act who she claims looks too much like her.

Lawyers for the 81-year-old star say concertgoers could be misled by posters for Simply the Best – The Tina Turner Story because its star looks so much like the real deal.

Dorothea “Coco” Fletcher, who has fronted the tribute show for years on its tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, is about 50 years younger than Tina Turner.

The outcome of the case could have serious repercussions for tribute shows and lookalike acts in Germany, The Times reports.
