Laurène Pineau, designer As a child we didn’t have a lot of money and couldn’t afford to buy a Halloween costume. So, every year, my mum made me a homemade witch’s dress out of black bin bags. I didn’t mind, though, I felt like the spookiest little witch in all the land and hit my local streets for a trick-or-treat crawl with the biggest smile on my face! Matt Lister, writer My favourite Halloween costume was my attempt at being Trixie [Mattel], until she messaged my friend to tell him I looked busted… So, the year after, I went as a Cock Destroyer and, this time, Rebecca More LOVED it. I guess Halloween is the one night of the year we get to dress up as total sluts — but I definitely manage…

I’m doing… OK. On a scale of one to ten, where zero is outright, ‘cannot-get-out-of-bed’ dread, and ten is joyful, ‘singing-show-tunes-from-the-rafters’ glee, today I woke up hovering around a six. (And yes, maybe that sounds bad, but it does make me wonder whether we are conditioned to think we should always be running around with elated grins on our faces, or am I merely justifying my regular melancholy? After all, if we’re forever at a glowing ten, can we really appreciate being happy if we don’t know what it’s like not to be? And aren’t those eternally optimistic people skipping around at the ten end of the scale the kind you just want to push under a bus?) But I digress… Today, I slipped into some shorts, shot off to the gym to…

PADDY HOPKIRK MINI It was a giant killer’s tale made real — Northern Ireland’s Paddy Hopkirk at the wheel of a humble Mini Cooper S won the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally, a surprise victory that took the little British car from outsider and crowd pleaser to motor-racing legend. And now, almost 37 years since car number 37 made history, you can grab a slice of it yourself with one of just 100 limited-edition, modern era Paddy Hopkirk Minis produced to mark the moment. Deliveries of the Chili Red Mini Cooper S cars start in November, priced from £27,405, and carry Hopkirk’s signature on bonnet stripe and dash, plus a series of commemorative features including the original car’s 33 EJB registration embossed within. mini.co.uk LACOSTE X ARÓN PIPER Lacoste has played an ace by serving…

KEEP YOUR DICK IN YOUR PANTS. Movie serial killers tend to be massive slutshamers (eurgh) and the virgin always makes it to the end. Have OnlyFans? Sorry, hun, bye-bye . NEVER SAY “I’LL BE RIGHT BACK” — because, bitch, you won’t be. Like when your dad left your mum and said he’d still see you at weekends. It ain’t happening. TURN AROUND, YOU STUPID COW — yes, he’s behind you. Tip: pretend you’re in an episode of America’s Next Top Model, constantly serving over-the-shoulder realness. DON’T GO INTO THE BASEMENT OR THE GARAGE. You may have found yourself in a tight hole before, but this is a much stickier situation. HAVE A SPRING CLEAN. Clear that corridor and stairwell. If you’re being pursed by a masked murderer, the last thing you need is to…

Why might an actor be cast for a role? Characterisation, height, hair colour, voice quality, availability and… sexuality? In 13 years of being an actor, I have never been asked about my sexuality in an audition, and I have been chosen for both straight and queer parts. Yet this seems to be a hot topic for discussion in the light of various gay roles in high-profile films being played by publicly straight actors. Take Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding, who landed a role in Monsoon, playing a gay character. Golding has had to defend this casting decision by saying that the journey of the character doesn’t hinge on the fact that the person is gay. But would it be a problem if it did? Acting can be an extremely tough…

“If I could be any inanimate object in the world, I would be a stapler. I like to keep things together” What were your rejected drag names? I have none – Priyanka was the perfect one! Describe yourself in three emojis. Describe your drag style in five words. Iconic. Popstar. Unpredictable. Chaotic. SEXY! Best pick-up line someone has said to you? “Are you Priyanka from Canada’s Drag Race? I’ll make you say my name.” What’s the worst thing someone could say to you in bed? I love this question. The worst thing they’ve said was: “Don’t tell Tynomi we slept together!” How would (or does) your Grindr profile read? I don’t have Grindr, but if I did, it would say: “Message me if you’re a starfucker.” Biggest turn-on? When a guy holds the back of my neck when he’s kissing me. Or a…
