Amanda Holden ‘furious after being falsely linked to diet pills’
The telly star said she had been the victim of a “scam”.
And Hollywood actor Russell Crowe was also falsely linked to the products.
Amanda, 48, said: “I have been made aware that a company is using my name (amongst many others) to sell a Keto Diet. I have no partnership with this company. This is a scam!
“So please be careful and do not sign up to this as they will take your money.”
There are sites online pushing “Amanda Holden Keto Pure” products alongside adverts for diet pills promising to help users lose weight “without diet or exercise”.
The high-fat, low-carb diet claims to help people lose weight.
But Lily Soutter, a nutritionist on ITV series Save Money: Lose Weight, warned: “It’s important to remember some of this weight loss will be down to water loss which accompanies a very low carbohydrate diet.”
She also said dieters could be missing out on vital nutrients.
Gladiator star Russell Crowe also denied any involvement with the diet.
The 55-year-old had been asked on Twitter if a testimonial quote reported to be from him was genuine.
In her blast, Amanda posted a photo of the ad for the diet’s pills. It claimed: “The new business project Amanda is referring to is her up and coming diet line Keto Pure.
“The actress has spent the past two years developing a line of highly effective diet and wellness products.”
It also fabricated a quote attributed to her, saying: “With Keto Pure, there’s a ridiculously easy way to lose weight without having to make any lifestyle adjustments!”
Last night it was unclear who had posted the fake Amanda and Russell adverts to the web.
