Nigella Lawson and five other people who have never, ever farted

THERE are the disgusting, flatulent multitudes who blow off all the time, and those who roam the earth like perfect, wind-free angels. Here are six of them: 

Nigella Lawson

Despite gorging herself on rich, creamy food from breakfast to midnight, the bum cheeks of the UK’s most alluring chef have never been tarnished by anything as base as a fart. Indeed, many believe that she does not even shit.

Joe Wicks

The flawless diet and physique of Joe Wicks, developed to never let down the nation by guffing off during a live lockdown exercise session, have allowed his spacious home to remain gut-odour free. However, he is a frustrated non-farter. You can see in his eyes he is desperate for the joy of releasing a real window-rattler.

The Duchess of Cambridge

Only the fair maiden who hath ne’er broke wind could win the hand of the prince who is heir to Britain’s throne, and win it she did. Meghan, however, farts like a squaddie after Curry Club. She and Harry only left the UK because they were sick of Kate pointedly opening windows. She’s a major factor in climate change.

Topsy and Tim’s mum from Cbeebies

A patient angel of good parenting, this lady has definitely never let one rip during family movie night. And even if she did, it would smell like a punnet of Waitrose cherries.

Sir Keir Starmer

Despite being raised in a working-class area where everyone around him farted from dawn to dusk, Keir dared to dream of better and held them in. Now, as a successful barrister and knight of the realm, he has promised to make Britain a country free of flatus.

Russell Brand

Used to fart, back in his dissolute heroin-addicted days, but after a year at a fart detox spa now meditates, treats his own guts as an equal, and is completely in control of his own anal emissions. Believes we all should be too, the condescending prick.
