Experiment Result: Spinach Makes You Stronger

As lab technician George readied the inaugural experiment, Faria was called upon to become the first participant.

Upon entering the lab she was required to don a pair of white boxing gloves, then asked to punch a special power-measuring machine, kind-of like the ones you see at fairgrounds but without the bells and whistles.

Big Brother had given Faria some advice inspired by the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali: 'Remember, float like a butterfly, sting like a bee'. However, it might have been more helpful to have said: 'Smack it for all you're worth!'

An average strength rating was recorded after three attempts, and the London lass then moved on to the next stage of the experiment.

"You must eat nothing but spinach all day. You have to eat spinach every 15 minutes, and you must wheel your spinach with you at all times," said George, reading from a laminate.

The purpose of this experiment was to find out if, like Popeye, eating spinach really makes you stronger. Of course, it probably doesn't make you feel too good if you eat it all day long, but incredibly it did make her slightly stronger.

In fairness though, this was probably more to do with the fact that during her first attempt, pre-vegetables, one of her punches landed off-target on the measuring machine.

So, experiment No. 1 was a success, but the former PA is probably going to need that extra strength to get her to the loo and back several times today!
