Following on from news of Michael Gove's indiscretions with cocaine, Liverpudlian former TV host, and potential future Prime Minister, Esther McVey, has told us of her secret teenage sherbert dip habit.
In her scouse accent, she told us 'I was only 14 when I was addicted to them, that liquorice stick, the sweet, sticky powder. It was an entry drug to so much worse. Before I knew it, I had moved onto the harder drugs, Liquorice Allsorts, Monster Munch, Frazzles, the tuck shop at lunchtime was my downfall, it was.'
This follows news that other beloved Liverpudlians also had a secret life as well.
