Following this piece last week, where Vicky claimed "my army" of Bizarre readers had been asked to help find Lily Allen's dog (they hadn't), the story reaches a conclusion today with even more outlandish claims on Vicky's part.
Not only does she claim some of the credit for the dog being found ("But the offer of a reward, plus an army of Bizarre readers sniffing out the culprits after my call to hunt the dognappers, encouraged the thieves to get in touch with Lily."), but ends the piece with "Last week when I revealed that Maggie had vanished, Lily told me:" followed by direct quotes lifted from Lily's MySpace blog (the same ones she used last week). "I revealed"? "Lily told me"? You didn't reveal, and Lily didn't tell you.
Then add the following: "Emotional Lily rushed back from her hols to be reunited with her pet yesterday, as my picture shows." It wasn't yesterday, it was Wednesday - but then Vicky should know that, as "my picture" has again been nicked from Lily's blog, posted at 5pm that day.
Needless to say, every quote from Lily in today's piece regarding the return of her dog has also been lifted, word for word, from her MySpace blog.
There certainly has been a lot of theft going on, hasn't there?
