Kate Middleton keeps her vices well hidden - a wise move for any royal-to-be. No one would guess from her slender frame the two-bag-a-week sweetie habit revealed by her family’s local shopkeeper.

Others with a penchant for Haribo include singer Justin Bieber, who favours the Sour Strawbs variety, and Cheryl Cole, who’s distressed they “don’t taste the same” across the pond.

With Kate’s favoured varieties, Starmix and Tangfastics, packing in more than 900 calories per 275g bag, she must be running around like a headless chicken to burn them off.

If she’s eating them, that is: Amy Winehouse is rumoured to have stuffed a couple of mini-bags down her dress at a concert a few years ago to boost her cleavage. Keep your eyes peeled on the big day, Haribo-watchers.
