Victoria Beckham’s thin because she hardly eats, and other shocking facts
Hilary Fannin: You never know what you’ll learn at the beautician’s

I was flicking through the magazines on the waiting-room table, waiting for my name to be called. I began by reading an illuminating piece about why Victoria Beckham is thin. “Victoria Beckham,” the article boldly stated, “is thin because she eats very few calories!”
Well, gag me with a spoon, I thought, you learn something every day. According to the article, there was a time when “Victoria exclusively ate only peas”. (Or maybe she ate only exclusive peas; I can’t quite remember.) Anyhow, she jettisoned the exclusive-pea diet on the advice of her husband, David, who probably feared she might turn into a little frozen green orb and roll under the freezer.
