Making a bid to become bakers’ public enemy number one is ageing ex-supermodel (miaow) Cindy Crawford, whose baker-baiting bread abuse was snapped for a photoshoot in the April issue of US women’s magazine Allure. The image of 43-year-old Crawford tearing up a loaf in the mag’s ’anti-ageing issue’ was captioned with: ’White bread may be slang for innocuous, but not for your diet’.

The story was picked up by The Daily Mail, which ran the headline: "Want to look like Cindy Crawford? Then ditch bread". Well, we don’t, but we wish Ms Crawford all the best in her efforts to defy gravity, wrinkles and an ever-decreasing pay packet.
