And Finally - Mad about the Daddy

SnapShop does not usually embroil itself in ethical nightmares, but as this brushes the edges of our retail world, we thought we ought to bring it to your attention.

Apparently some likely lad wanting to cash in on our celebrity-obsessed culture has decided it would be a good idea to get a few famous chaps to hand over their sperm, to enable slightly misguided (but undoubtedly very rich) young women to force the hand of fate and offer their offspring the genetic equivalent of a silver spoon.

At SnapShop we’re very aware that the best online sellers are those where you know what you’re going to get and you know it will be/do/fit exactly as you expect – why do you think Amazon launched with books! As everyone knows, very few children follow in their parents’ footsteps and these cash-rich, but otherwise very poor young women may find that the faceless father might be a premiership footballer, but might also have the looks of a pumpkin and the IQ of a goldfish.

Fame Daddy CEO Dan Richards said: "Our vision is to help women give their children the very best chance in life.” At fifteen grand a pop, might there be better ways of investing that money in your child’s future. What do you think?

SnapShop has learnt that ITV, who interviewed Dan Richards earlier this week, are now investigating what is potentially a spoof. Phillip Schofield of This Morning said: "There is no doubt it was an incredible tale. Well, we're conducting our ongoing investigations into Dan and there is a possibility that Dan may not actually be who he says he is and the fact that the whole story may not be what it says it was."
