Express up blind Alley

"Kirstie Alley: I ate 28,000 calories a day" screams a Daily Express headline today. The story is lifted from the US Life magazine - though with the newspaper's customary embellishment.

Life reported that the 55-year-old actress actually ate up to 8,000 calories a day. Quite where the extra 20,000 came from is anyone's guess - probably some moron in subs decided that 8,000 didn't sound dramatic enough, though that's a lot more than your average truck driver gets through in 24 hours.

Or perhaps the paper has now extended its Diana principle (ie make it up) to the rest of the news.
