Keeping Up With The Joneses

‘CHARLOTTE Church claims she turned down a plum film role after she was told she would have to lose weight.

”Is that you, Ms Feltz?”

It’s just a pity for her that she was not being auditioned to play the title role in the follow-up to the 2001 film, Bridget Jones’s Diary.

According to the Mail, Renee Zellwegger has agreed to reprise her role as the plump, lovelorn Londoner for a reported £15m fee.

But most of that money looks set to disappear down the actress’s throat as she tries to pile on the pounds for the part.

The paper says her daily diet includes 20 doughnuts, pizza, a Big Mac and chips, spaghetti with meat sauce and potatoes swimming in butter.

”It’s easier for me this time round because I know what I have to do and how to do it,” she says.

”I have to stick to it because I found out last time that one doughnut doesn’t do a thing. You’ve got to at 20 a day for five weeks before you get results.”

In this day and age, when every Hollywood actress has a slimming coach, do we spot a large gap in the market here through which Vanessa Feltz might squeeze her bulky frame?

Who better to pass on the secrets of a lifetime of overeating?
