Renee munches 20 doughnuts a day

Renée Zellweger says she's eating 20 doughnuts a day in a bid to pile on two stones for the sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary.

The actress has six weeks to go from a size six to a size 14 before playing the neurotic character in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.

She has ruled out any form of exercise during her 4,700 calorie-a-day diet.

Renee, who is set to earn £15million for the film, told The Sun: "One doughnut does not do a thing - you've got to eat 20 a day for five weeks to get results."

She put on 20lb in three months for the original movie. It took months of running and yoga to lose weight.

Her diet includes a Big Mac with large fries, savoury scones with gravy and a high-fat milkshake for breakfast.

Lunch is pizza, peanut butter and chips, followed by doughnuts, and dinner is a giant plate of spaghetti and meat sauce with potatoes and butter.
