The Victoria's Secret models may box, ballet and bootcamp their way to the 1000 foot Swarovski beaded runway, but they also enjoy a few little guilty pleasures along the way. And most of them are edible.

When 32 of the models were asked to reveal their 'Guilty Pleasure', 20 of them admitted it was something naughty but nice to eat. And we're not talking granola and coconut water, we're talking Coca-cola, McDonalds, cake, pizza and Hilary Rhoda's personal favourite peanut M&M's. (Which she later burns off during her favourite hobbies, fitness and dance classes - so not quite as humbling).

However, the list of pleasures is sugar, additive and cocoa rich. It's okay girls...tell us everything. Chocolate and candy make seven appearances, cake and cookies make three. Ice-cream, pizza, pastries and peanut butter are just as pleasing to the models, while unsponsored confessions of Coca-cola and McDonalds come up too.

Brit girl Lily Donaldson admits to a red wine failing, while Jourdan Dunn likes a little chipotle sauce on her snacks. Cara Delevingne does however list playing Grand Theft Auto video game as her bad fix, but then again her workout is more likely to be done drum kit side than in a gym.

Only one of them, Brazilian model Izabel Goulart, who loves nothing more than Pilates and kickboxing, stuck to her angelic guns. She shamefully unveiled her guilty pleasure was buying workout equipment(?) Pass the M&M's Hilary.

Latvian beauty Ieva Laguna said her guilty pleasure was booking in for a massage. Yes, probably more to do with undoing the damage done by your gruelling pre-show body plan dear girl. As are the long lie-ins that Ming Xi, Kasia Struss and Jac Jagaciak, (who just loves training with her international athlete for a sister) all enjoy in secret.

While the models don't give anything away about how guilt ridden their rationing is - is that a whole cake Caroline, Maryna? an entire chocolate bar Constance? - a chocolate problem shared with an Angel feels like a problem halved. We thank you.
