Mum-to-be Jess has the ultimate clean diet

A mum-to-be has developed a bizarre pregnancy craving – eating SOAP.

Jess Gayford is over eight months’ pregnant with her second child and regularly munches bars and liquid soap.

She now gets through up to two bottles a week of the cleaning fluid.

Jess, of Bristol, said: “It came out of nowhere. I wanted to lick a bar of Dove soap.

“I went to buy a bar and started licking it. It sounds disgusting but it’s really nice.”

Jess, 26, has a five-year-old son, Alfie, with partner Lee Trimby, 31.

Lee was worried at first but they have been told it won’t harm their unborn daughter.

She added: “In my first pregnancy I wanted to eat baked beans and cheese but nothing weird.”

The condition pica, which mainly affects children and pregnant women, causes people to eat non-food items such as sand, ice or paint.
