Twink has gone too far in her publicity quest

MOVE over EL James, because there's a new steamy tome in the bookshops. Only the leading lady in this one is Twink, a grand old dame who never passed up a chance to talk about herself.

In recent days we've read newspaper extracts from her new autobiography.

If saucy revelations of sexual antics with ski instructors and swarthy Egyptian doctors are your thing, you'll be in seventh heaven.

The rest of us might pass on it, thanks anyway. But amid the bonkbuster details is a seriously and shocking revelation.

Apparently Twink contemplated the murder/suicide of her daughters after her husband's affair. She considered murdering her kids as a "valid option".

Serialising shocking details like these were a bridge too far for me. Is there any boundary Twink is not prepared to cross in her ceaseless quest for publicity?
