The actor and model Cara Delevingne has added her voice to the Harvey Weinstein allegations, accusing the film producer of sexual harassment.

She describes feeling “very powerless and scared” when invited to his room, after hearing him “brag about all the actresses he had slept with”. She recounts how, when in his hotel room, he asked her to kiss another woman in the room, and then tried to “kiss me on the lips”.

It’s a chilling story, and one to add to the grim and growing list of sexual assault and harassment allegations against Weinstein (the film producer has lost his job and his wife since the allegations emerged, but says that some are "patently false").

It’s only right, then, that the UK press should cover the British actor’s story. And how better to do so than the Daily Express, which has taken a bold, pioneering angle on one of the biggest stories of the day: how much is Delevingne worth?

No, really.

This is the newspaper’s headline:

And so urgent does it feel this is that it’s tweeted the same question twice in half an hour, adding rather irrelevant pictures of Delevingne and a big red NET WORTH stamp, to boot:


You can always trust the Express to get to the heart of the story, and ask the Big Questions.
