Who said the Royal Baby was good for nothing? Coverage of the baby has given Mail Online its best ever day for unique users with 10.57 million whilst the rest of the UK web traffic to news sites hits 94 million. Maybe we can get back to real news now? Or will that mess with the stats too much?

In a pointless piece of journalism, The Independent sent out Ellie House to fake a pregnancy since the world (note the world meaning the media) has gone “pregnancy mad”.
