Go Figure

‘ODD isn’t it that Abi Titmuss is now more famous that John Leslie. Odder still that she is no friend of Michelle Heaton.

But Abi can’t have everything. She can try. But she can’t. It just wouldn’t be fair on the rest of womankind.

What’s this? Abi has depression? No, dummy, Abi has Brazil nuts. But if she was feeling a little low, who could blame her after the press called her “Flabby Abi”.

“I mean,” says Abi, 29, “what sort of message is it sending out of young girls saying that being 10st is fat? For my height, I’m not fat.”

Although it’s hard to gage her height when she’s lying down, and in so doing setting an example to young girls that being what she calls a “normal curvy girl” is no barrier to success. In fact, Abi’s kind of success positively demands such a figure…’
