Just when you thought it was bad enough for people to be injecting rat’s poison into their foreheads to get rid of wrinkles, along came a new celebrity fad that involves getting hooked up to an intravenous drip in order to get rid of a hangover. Moral objections aside, this sounds bloody marvellous to us, the second coming, the best thing since sliced bread! Ahem, what we mean to say is: ‘has the world gone mad?!’ Whatever happened to a good old full English and a spot of ‘hair of the dog’?!
The controversial treatment hit the headlines after Rihanna tweeted a photo of various wires going into her arm recently, feeding a strong concoction of vitamins and minerals into her body to combat the after-effects of a heavy week of partying and gigs.
And now Joe Bloggs is starting to use it as a way of carrying on partying even when feeling like a small man called Bill is drilling holes inside your head. Air stewardess Nicky Bailey (pictured) has been having the treatment every month, as she spends a lot of time in Ibiza partying, stating that she feels any lethargy and sickness literally filtering out of her. Maybe us blokes could factor it into a Ibiza stag do, enabling us to carry on partying when everyone else is feeling the effects of eight hours on the dance floor at Cream? Ahem.
It ain’t cheap mind, a single treatment hitting the sky rocket for a whopping £225, the equivalent of about fifty hangover-busting fry-ups!
Speaking of the sunshine Balearic isle, we’ve got some exciting Ibiza stag weekends-related news coming your way in the next few weeks involving boat parties, steak dinners, strip shows, casinos and all-manner of other sordid stuff.
On second thoughts perhaps the ‘party girl drip’ wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all!
