Anna Friel has revealed she replaces solid food with cups of maple syrup, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and water in a bid to stay thin.

Celebs and their crazy, crazy diets.

If you have a feeling of déjà vu, it's because the master cleanse detox or lemonade diet has previously been touted by celebs like Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Campbell as a good way to lose weight.

Friel told Grazia magazine that she takes the drink 12 times a day as part of a detox and anti-ageing regime.

The actress said, 'I've been drinking it for two months and I feel so much better and my skin has really benefited.

'If you're vain, as you get older you start thinking, "I've got to do everything I can to save my skin". I've tried everything,' she told the mag.

Providing less than 600 calories a day, we're sincerely hoping that the actress doesn't mean she's been doing it solidly for two months – as that would just be silly.

Hard core folks that try it usually aim to make it to 14 days before slowly reintroducing solid foods like soup and juice.

The diet has come under serious attack from nutritionists for being devoid of protein, vitamins, minerals or fibre.

Side effects include headaches, fatigue, dizzy spells, tooth decay, irritability, or constipation due to the complete lack of fibre. Sounds delightful.

Beyoncé first made the diet popular when she slimmed down for Dreamgirls – however nutritionists also warn that this type of crash diet will not achieve long term results because as soon as people start eating real food, that weight will go back on.

Sounds pretty bonkers to us.
