Oliver Callan is at it again.

Never one to mince his words, the comic has hit out at former Miss World Rosanna Davison's new career venture as a healthy eating guru and questioning her expertise.

The model released her debut cookbook Eat Yourself Beautiful - featuring her trademark  all natural, vegan recipes - in December and immediately topped the charts. But Callan, who recently entered into a war of words with Alan Hughes, slammed her book cover and content in a new column with the Irish Sun.

"Gurning out from the preposterously girly cover, the irony of someone wearing more makeup than Ronald McDonald spouting about keeping things natural was clearly lost on anyone who bought and read it," he wrote.

"Rosanna's demographic are the sort of people who photograph themselves on Facebook sitting on a pilates ball with an unread Caitlin Moran book in hand. Out of shot is usually a family size bag of Maltesers, a box of white wine and a packet of Kleenex."

Callan was focusing on Rosanna in response to her most recent anti-dairy comments. He waxed lyrical about the dangers of foodies dishing out health advice without qualification. Unlike others with nothing more than a passion for food and a large social media following, Rosanna is a qualified nutritional therapist and studied at Griffith College for three years to obtain her degree.

The 30-year-old, who is a vegan, has encouraged people to avoid dairy and, as usual, has come under fire from the National Dairy Council,among others, for the comments.

Rosanna spent three years studying for her qualification in nutritional therapy and said she's not trying to act as anyone's doctor.

“I don’t want people to take my advice as medical advice, but to show there are ways to help themselves through diet," she said.

Rosanna did not immediately respond to request for comment.
