Amy Williams, a 21-year-old Law student from Glasgow, regularly sends sugar daddy ‘Richard’ photos of her feet – and in return he offers her the chance to ‘drain’ his credit cards

Amy went on a shopping spree with Richard’s credit card after he said she could treat her friends…and picked up more than £1,000 of clothes for herself and the 15 pals in her chat group

When Amy’s friend, Sarah Connolly, tweeted images of the haul the post quickly went viral 

Amy’s arrangement recently went viral after her friend Sarah Connolly tweeted about the bumper Missguided order.

Sarah tweeted photos of the order last week with the caption: ‘Amys ‘sugar dad’ just treated the whole girls chat to clothes hahah.’

Screenshots of the girls’ order show it included various items from a £55 bomber jacket down to a £12 pair of leggings.

The post, which has since clocked up more than 12,000 likes, was followed by another photo the following day.

Sarah tweeted a picture of two large boxes with several Missguided parcels balanced on top with the caption: ‘It’s arrived.’

Fellow social media users were quick to express their envy. @Beckylouisee replied: ‘Okay how can I get in on the girls chat?’ 

@chloewalsh071 added: ‘Where did she find the sugar daddy?? Help I need one.’ And @mcalpss said: ‘Okay well I also want involved.’

Generous Amy joked back: ‘At least I was nice and gave him the £176 student discount.’

More photos followed the following day of Amy’s stash of items being delivered to her home

One of the orders made by Amy with Richard’s money; she says sending photos of her feet for sexual gratification is ‘really strange’ but says ‘it’s only feet’

The posts have sparked online retailer Missguided to launch a competition giving other lucky group chats the chance to win their dream wardrobe.

Missguided tweeted: ‘Amy’s sugar daddy works hard, but Missguided works harder/ We’re giving away one girls group chat their entire wish list. Comment below why we should pick you and your squad.’ 

Speaking to MailOnline, Amy said: ‘There was so much stuff, I had to label it all up in my room with everyone’s name on it so I didn’t get confused!’

‘I’ve had the arrangement since May. I tweeted saying I was skint and needed a sugar daddy and he direct messaged me straight away offering money in return for feet pictures.

‘I thought he was talking rubbish, as there’s loads of fake people like that on Twitter, so I said “money first”, and he sent me one of his credit cards and told me to buy myself something so I did and it worked.

Opportunist: Missguided shared Sarah Connolly’s posts about Amy’s purchase and turned them into a competition, offering another ‘squad’ the chance to win their own fashion choices

The student continues: ‘As time went on, he started sending me money literally just for pictures of my feet, which I’m sure anyone would do.

She adds: ‘Then just recently he’s sent me credit cards with big amounts on them like £2500 and told me to ‘drain’ the lot of them and treat me and my friends.

‘He also sends me money for the feet pics quite regularly which is just really strange but definitely not complaining, it’s only feet.’

First the sugar tax now there might be a 'calorie tax' on chocolate, cake and biscuits

THE government is being urged to introduce a "calorie tax" on chocolate, cake and biscuits..

Brits who like fizzy drinks have already been hit with higher prices following the sugar tax, but campaigners say it isn't enough to tackle obesity.

Processed snacks should be limited to how many calories they can have per 100g or manufacturers have to pay extra to sell them, argue Action on Sugar and Action on Salt.

It'd force them to change the recipes, or increase the prices for shoppers.

Fat contributes more to the calories in people's diets than sugar, so manufacturers should reduce both, according to the campaigners.

They suggested the tax could be based on a Mexican model that adds 8 per cent tax if a product has more than 275 calories per 100g.

This means the cost of a 400g jar of Nutella would increase from £2.90 to £3.13.

By the same rule, a four-pack of 110g Magnum Classic ice creams would rise by 13p from £1.60.

The estimates are based on today's cheapest price in the big four supermarkets, and assume the tax would be added directly on the shelf price.

It would follow in the footsteps of the sugar tax, which has added up to 24p to the price of a litre of pop if the manufacturer refused to change the recipe.

What is the sugar tax?

HERE'S everything you need to know about the sugar tax.

The sugar tax is a levy put on drinks companies to crack down on high sugar levels in soft drinks.

Companies are now taxed according to the sugar content of their wares.

One is for drinks with a total sugar content of more than 5g per 100ml, while a second, higher levy is imposed on drinks with 8g per 100ml or more.

The sugar tax came into force on April 6, 2018, after hopes of a U-turn by PM Theresa May were dashed.

The tax is estimated to raise around £520million which will be used to fund sports in primary schools.

The government revealed in November 2018 that the sugar tax had raised close to £154million.

Katharine Jenner, of Action on Sugar and Action on Salt, said: "Manufacturers are simply not doing enough.

"If the government is really committed to helping the less well off, they need to tackle the food industry."

Professor Graham MacGregor said: "The sugar tax has been remarkable and unique in that it allows for significant product reformulation by manufacturers in order to avoid paying the levy.

"The same could be achieved in creating a levy to reduce excess calories, but we need a firm commitment from HM Treasury and the Department of Health and Social Care to make this a reality."

Yet the government said there are no plans to introduce a calorie levy on biscuits and chocolate.

But in December, it was reported that it will crack down on calories in ready meals such as pizza and sandwiches.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Social Care said: "There are no plans to introduce a calorie levy.

"We are already reducing exposure to fatty and sugary foods, and are now consulting on further plans to offer clear labelling and more support for individuals to manage their weight."

Shortly before becoming Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said that he may axe the sugar tax.

Meanwhile, Labour plans to extend the sugar tax to milkshakes.

That would drive up the cost of every half-litre bottle by 12p – adding roughly 10 per cent to the current price.
