A Russian man divorced his wife of 18 years after finding she had been feeding him cheap pumpkins instead of courgettes.
Ivan Dimitrov, 47, was devastated to find the pies he had been eating for six months were made of pumpkins and not courgettes.
Mr Dimitrov, from Voronezh, said when he realised the truth, after finding pumpkin rinds in the bin, he immediately hired a lawyer to organise a quick divorce from wife Irena, 38.
He said: “She knows I absolutely hate pumpkins and she lied to me for months about it just because the pumpkins were cheap.
“What else has she been lying about? What man could trust a woman who fed him pumpkins for half a year?”
