Calorie-conscious quaffers can now enjoy a new "skinny" champagne.

Grand Cru Cuvee Champagne has half the calories of the average bottle of bubbly, according to former BBC broadcaster and the founder of champagne sales company Thomson & Scott, Amanda Thomson.

The diet-friendly tipple is produced by champagne maker Alexandre Penet.

Ms Thomson said: "We know that the British have a history of loving champagne, but in today's more calorie-conscious market, I've found a producer who delivers a deliciously dry champagne, but with no added sugar.

"The champagne making world is notoriously difficult to penetrate but in Alexandre Penet I've found a French partner who is both world renowned yet also innovative.

"The fashion crowd especially loves the idea of drinking fizz with less fat. Momentum for skinny champagne is really growing and I am proud to be the one to launch it."
