Sun on Sunday reveals more signings as the Eye takes cyncial view of Murdoch's new venture

The Sun on Sunday has named its latest signings in the run-up to its launch at the weekend.

Nancy Dell'Olio will write a weekly style column while TV chef James Martin will provide SoS readers with recipies. In February, Martin had to pay his former stepmother damages and pulp copies of his autobiography after branding her "the ugliest woman I have ever met."

Guido Fawkes is reporting that Toby Young, Telegraph blogger and author of How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, is joining the SoS as a political columnist.

The Sun's Bizarre showbiz column will go seven days a week for the new Sunday which will also have a TV Biz pullout with local listings, a money column, travel tips, puzzles and agony aunt Deidre Sanders.

SoS has already announced that former Man United star Roy Keane will be its football pundit.

Meanwhile, Private Eye (top) has taken a somewhat cynical view of Rupert Murdoch's new venture.

I would have thought any work for The Sun would be in conflict with James Martin's weekly column in the Mail on Sunday - although the prospect of reciPIES is quite appealing

Pulp the book in February, yeah but about 8 years ago! Very old news!

You are well behind the times with the pulping of James's book, that was years back - keep up eh?
Anyhow,he had major family issues at that time, everyone is allowed one gaffe in their life and to put their foot in should know that feeling very well Private Eye. What's that saying about folk in glass houses?
