It's a particularly sad day for Frankie Lamps, with news (in The Sun) that a great big pile of golden iPods emblazoned with his extravagant autograph have been "melted down" and replaced with a popular Japanese cartoon character, called Hello Kitty.
For those who don't know, Hello Kitty is some kind of weird animated bobtail cat that doesn't do much to speak of, beyond smiling aggressively at you, whilst simultaneously making you want to purchase products that you weren't aware that you wanted a few moments ago.
Like golden iPods, for example.
Speaking out on the matter, a spokesperson said this:
"We may have over-ordered."
