THE soon-to-be ex-wife of Formula One tycoon Bernie Ecclestone has vowed to buy a taller husband or two midgets that can be bolted together.
Slavica Ecclestone is expected to receive enough money in her divorce settlement to buy any man, or combination of men, that she wants.
She said last night: "When I was a young girl my idea of the perfect husband was a man who was suave, sophisticated, about six foot tall and had a billion pounds.
"But unfortunately at the age of 26 I found myself in the position where I had to choose between a man who was nine foot tall but skint and a three foot midget with two billion pounds.
"I chose Bernie Ecclestone."
She added: "We had many happy years but there's only so long you can be a climbing frame for a monkey. Even a very, very rich monkey.
"But soon I will have the money and I can choose. I suppose the easy thing would be to have one very large husband but I really like the idea of two midgets in a boiler suit.
"Then they can take it in turns to be the one on top. It'll keeps things fresh."
