I’d like to state, for the record, that picking a winner for the Champion Sports giveaway – of a pair of Puma BodyTrain shoes – was difficult. I really felt for Eimear H @ 50, for example, who offered to bully her nearest and dearest into following Fash Mob, although, she added, “they probably are already”. Now that’s charm.

I also had a soft spot for Antoinette Collins @ 51, who composed a very long and almost-all-rhyming poem, and Shoeless @ 28, who has no shoes whatsoever. But there had to be one winner, and that winner is: Colin O’Leary @ 52, who cunningly insulted his girlfriend in order to win her a pair of shoes. I like your style, Colin. If she reads this and decides you’re dumped, call me.

Commiserations to the rest of you – but for the record, I (a) dislike the word “cougar”, (b) dislike the pressure put on women to lose weight post-pregnancy and (c) am entirely against terms that are made up specifically to describe women’s fat bodies, such as “bingo wings”. So the inclusion of (a), (b) or (c) – although I really wonder how (a) got in there, twice – will automatically have put you in the “not likely” category. But I still love you all. The end!
