No More Pippa

Pippa's Daily Telegraph contract ends

Is Pippa's journalism career hitting bottom?

It certainly seems her Midas touch is wearing off.

Her book bombed, and now Pippa Middleton's unmissably awful bi-weekly column for the Daily Telegraph has, all connoisseurs of truly terrible journalism will be sad to learn, been dropped.

The 'Court and Social' column which saw Pippa dress up in silly outfits - lederhosen for example - and do silly things - aqua-spinning classes, put up the Christmas lights on Bond Street and , er, flipping pancakes - has been finally put out of its misery after a reader reaction so unfavorable that the editors didn't even risk young Pip's pieces having a comments section.

At least there was no doubt that she really did write it herself.

The Telegraph confirmed her contract had ended.

A spokeswoman told the Daily Mirror: “The column was great. Pippa Middleton is a professional freelance writer and has gone on to do other things for other publications.”

When asked whether the decision was Pippa’s or the paper’s, the spokeswoman said: “As far as I am aware it was just one of those things."

She wrote the column for the paper for just six months.

Pippa still writes for Vanity Fair. In a recent column for them about cricket, she used a bunch of jokes about the game you will often find written on a tea towel in most British houses.

"A batsman goes out and is then in until he gets out. This goes on until the last batsman is out, apart from one who is still in and therefore not out."
