Paul Burrell continued to combine his two obsessions of headline grabbing and vulnerable women by having an affair with Kate Moss .
"I was able to offer my support because I had worked for Diana (sigh) who had an eating disorder and unsuitable boyfriends. I think that is what has drawn Kate and me together. I said that I could be Kate's rock - but I would need her to write some personal letter for my safe keeping to sell in the future."
"Paul's lines may be corny - but they don't get up my nose as much as Pete's."Moss said. Journalists seeing her perplexed reaction to their sneering laughter had to explain that she had been accidentally witty.
Paul Burrell's book: "Secrets that I stole from Kate Moss" was published yesterday.
