The Sun:
"THIS rise in numbers of children with eating disorders is tragic. What is going on in our society?"

Nikki:
"I think there is so much pressure because of airbrushed images and a lot of thin people appear in magazines."

"I do not think it helps that there are also stick-thin models on the catwalk. You see these emaciated models and think. They are being paid thousands of pounds to look like that. How can that be justified?..."
