I think they probably had to credit MN (as they cynically leeched off the webchat) but they probably don't want to lead people to the site (as they don't come out too well on here funnily enough grin) so they wanted to throw people off the scent a bit, or at least not feed it to them on a plate. I don't think it was an accidental error at all. We don't like to up their clicks so I'm sure they don't like to up ours.

It's also made the Standard so not just the Fail. I wonder if any of the weekend columnists will pick up the webchat to use?

Is there an award for the laziest journalists in the World? The Daily Fail's must surely be in the running for it?

What a surprise. I will resist giving them the hits they crave.

I love her! There is a rumour that at Cambridge she used to ride down the halls of her college on a motorbike. I can so imagine it being true.

She just comes across as so lovely - has she been nominated on the universally loved celebrity thread? She should be!

Aw... no-one asked her what her favourite biscuit was sad

MNHQ- I hope one of you did!

I'm guessing she had a typist, no?

Thank you- we spend our lives trying to be successful, but it is our failures that make us who we are.

Emma I love you. You are fab.

Anywho what advice would you give your younger self?
Don't ever go on a diet. Just don't. Walk away. From the diet. Ignore the books. Ignore the magazines. Make the diet the D word. Diets are the spawn of satan.
