Have celebrities destroyed the Cotswolds?

The front page of the Independent newspaper today (Tues 1st November) asks Have celebrities destroyed the Cotswolds?
The story is split into two parts.
Clive Aslet, editor of Country Life magazine writes that you are more likely to bump into Kate Moss in the ladies or Liz Hurley riding down a country lane than a farmer talking about silage making. He says that if you are looking for the Cotswolds as it used to be... forget it.

The other side of the story comes from Dom Joly, the comediam made famous by the Trigger Happy TV series, who seems to be enjoying his life in the Cotswolds.
Joly moved to Gloucestershire from London a few years ago. He comments on the fact that Anne Robinson is selling her house near Bibury and quips that Liz Hurley (another Cotswold resident now) is a much lovelier sight in the Cirencester Waitrose than Ann Robinson anyway!
