Model Olivia Inge is using an unusual technique to treat her nine-month-old daughter Jemima’s cough
A descendant of former prime minister William Gladstone, model Olivia Inge is using an unusual technique to treat her nine-month-old daughter Jemima’s cough.
The 38-year-old, who has modelled for Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, is pictured below pricking her daughter with needles as part of an acupuncture treatment.
‘It doesn’t hurt babies — Jemima didn’t even blink,’ she insists.
‘It’s a really fast and effective way to treat them.
‘The needle I used was 0.2 by 15mm, which is far less brutal than vaccine needles.’
Olivia, who is married to financier Peter Davies, has trained as an acupuncturist.
‘I treated a patient who was two, who was born with asthma — his symptoms all cleared up a week later.’
Sceptics claim acupuncture is a theatrical placebo and that waving a magic stick would have a similar effect.

The Tatler snapper has sent friends a card with an image of himself in the style of a Looney Tunes cartoon
Royal photographer Hugo Burnand, who took the loving picture used by Prince Charles and Camilla for their Christmas card, has a droll festive offering of his own.
Each Christmas for the past 25 years Burnand has sent cards featuring pictures of his children, but they have all grown up and left home.
So the Tatler snapper has sent friends a card with an image of himself in the style of a Looney Tunes cartoon with a #FlownTheNest hashtag.
‘I cannot believe I will not be having my children on my own card again,’ he tells me.
‘The years have sped by, but luckily I will still be taking pictures of other people’s children, so the Christmas spirit is not over.’
With the Freddie Mercury film, Bohemian Rhapsody, becoming the highest-grossing music biopic in cinematic history, movie moguls are desperate for similar box office hits.
And who better for a subject than David Bowie, the ‘Chameleon of Rock’ who died in 2016?

His son, Duncan Jones, is, however determined to thwart producers’ plans.
‘They insist I take a meeting on a biopic about my dad,’ Jones says, adding that he plans to tell them ‘to shove it where the sun don’t shine’. Owie!
Yet for lunch at the weekend, Clarkson clad himself in combat trousers and a green coat and took control of a vehicle which intrigues members of the top brass
Jeremy Clarkson and his Grand Tour co-presenters have destroyed cars, buildings and helicopters.
But perhaps none of it has satisfied his military passion, which once led him to write and present a documentary about VC winners, including the late Major Robert Cain, father of his then wife, Frances.
Yet for lunch at the weekend, Clarkson clad himself in combat trousers and a green coat and took control of a vehicle which intrigues members of the top brass.
‘Some sort of military all-terrain flatbed, based on — or over — a quad-bike chassis,’ says one.
Clarkson successfully made it to his objective — lunch at the Daylesford Organic Farmshop, Gloucestershire. Not quite Arnhem.
Tory peer Lord Crathorne recalls that his mother had a painting exhibited at the Royal Academy’s 1936 summer exhibition.
‘With so many pictures to fit in, some have to be hung quite high, and people like to be hung ‘on the line’ — at eye level. One of my mother’s paintings was of a model called Zelda.
‘My father received a telegram from her which simply said, ‘Zelda hung on the line.’ It was delivered by a policeman, who demanded an explanation.’
Eighties charmer Nigel Havers admits his bedroom technique leaves something to be desired.
The 67-year-old actor still hasn’t learned to change a duvet, he confesses.
‘Now I’m pretty confident in the bedroom, but there is one thing I haven’t tried before,’ he says.
‘You know I can’t do duvets. No — too hot.’
