Daily Mail writer Samantha Brick is trending on Twitter again for her controversial opinions. Sarah Vine reports

Samantha Brick is at it again. This time the self-styled too-beautiful-to-have-friends writer is ruffling feathers with her assertion that if a woman wants to stay beautiful, she must do like Joan Collins does and diet every day of her life. According to Brick, "nothing signifies failure better than fat".

She goes on to explain how, when guests arrive proffering a box of chocolates, she throws them straight in the bin; how, at the age of 42, she has been weight-watching for 30 years; how she has only ever dated men who prefer slim women, thus handily combining the roles of boyfriend and weight-loss coach; how she banished her puppy fat by observing a strict diet of Polo mints: a packet for breakfast and one for lunch.

Later, while living in LA, she "made a point of renting a house without a kitchen". These days, she stays slim with the help of her husband, the extravagantly moustachioed Pascal, who, she says, has told her that if she puts on weight their marriage is over.

There are two possibilities here. Either Brick is a functioning anorexic who will, if she continues on this way, very shortly find her bones crumbling to dust and her teeth falling out; or (and this is my own personal theory), she is the Ali-G/Borat-style creation of a comedy genius. Come to think of it, that Pascal's moustache looks suspiciously familiar...

Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http

I couldn`t agree more with your last para. And throwing a present away when it`s offered is just plain rude.
