Dangerous pro-anorexia websites have found a new ‘thinspiration’ in Pippa Middleton to target women and young girls.

The Duke of Cambridge’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, who caused a sensation with her rear view as bridesmaid at the royal wedding in April, has become the latest celebrity target for the sites.

It comes just days after the Daily Star revealed Kate, 28, featured on pro-anorexic sites which urge women and young girls: "Starve Pippayourself to look this good."

And it follows shock reports that a record number of patients were admitted to hospital last year with life-threatening eating disorders after a 10% rise in cases.

Pictures of pretty Pippa, 27, wearing her bridesmaid dress appear on one of the websites under the shocking title: "Thin – or die trying."
