In what is being hailed in press circles as the most valuable set of snaps ever taken, a rogue paparazzo has secured the ultimate coup by papping Pippa Middleton, Kristen Stewart, Pixie Lott, Demi Lovato and Michelle Keegan out of Coronation Street, all together, in the skimpiest bikinis that anyone could ever imagine in their wildest imagination.
Quite how the rogue paparazzo managed to snap some of the world's most beautiful women, gathered within a few feet of each other on a sun kissed Seychelles beach remains a mystery.
Although the snapper insists that he employed tried and tested methods, and there was nothing remotely mysterious about it.
Some of the more vociferous critics insisted that the photograph has been photoshopped, as it is a fairly well kept secret that the world's most cunning paparazzo has been under house arrest in Canning Town for days on end.
Luigi Fanchini was unavailable for comment.
A police spokesman insisted that it would have been impossible for the super-snapper to sneak away, in secret, for the three days required to take the photographs.
But he did admit that he isn't all that sure where Fanchini is right now.
More when the snaps get developed. Probably next week sometime.
