From experience, if anyone is thinking of redecorating their house anytime soon do NOT paint any bedroom wall bright pink.

Not only does the colour remind everyone of a bottle of Pepto-Bismol, it is an absolute bugger to paint over, is so much darker on a wall than in the tin and will make you have nightmares of being trapped inside Barbie's dream house for eternity.

Believe me, my 14-year-old self learned this lesson the hard way.

However, Victoria's Secret model Kendall Jenner is now swearing by the paint colour, and has revealed some seriously dubious information about the effect it has on curbing her appetite.

Yes, you read that right, Kendall Jenner reckons her pink walls are a weight loss aid.

In a post on The Kendall Jenner Official App titled 'The Story Behind My Pink Wall', the 21-year-old revealed why she opted for such a bold colour for her living room wall inside her £5.2 million Los Angeles home.

According to Jenner, '[T]here's actually a funny story behind the color of my living room!'

The catwalk star went onto explain how some friends had told her about the colour 'Baker-Miller Pink' and encouraged her to use the bold hue in order to help her stop reaching for the biscuit tin.

'Baker-Miller Pink is the only color scientifically proven to calm you and suppress your appetite. I was like, 'I NEED this color in my house!' I then found someone to paint the room and now I'm loving it!' she wrote.

Personally, this colour reminds me of Krispy Kreme glazed donuts, Party Rings, strawberry bon bons and Hubba Bubba and would, in fact, have me wanting more food, but according to science, Kendall's theory isn't completely bonkers.

In the 1980s, the U.S. Naval Office of Research published research from scientists at the Health, Weight, and Stress Clinic at Johns Hopkins University who embarked on a four-year long study into the colour's affect on appetites.

The study found that one third of nearly 1,700 subjects noted Baker-Miller pink reduced their appetite.

Meanwhile, in the 1970s, scientist Alexander Schauss discovered the color – referred to in his study as 'Drunk Tank Pink' may have a calming effect on prisoners.

While it might stop Kendall reaching for the fridge door, we can't help think a lounge wall painted candy-colour pink would have us gorging on Flumps and Percy Pigs all day long.
