this week in your fab value

Welcome to the Real People Naked Issue! More through luck than design, there seems to be all sorts of bits on show this week. I’m not one for PDAs myself – Public Displays of Au naturel – as my buns, baps and rolls see less daylight than the back of the kitchen odds-and-sods drawer. But when others do it, well, I don’t complain! Lisa certainly didn’t on p6. A fun-loving mum, she was living on borrowed time but was determined to go out with a bang. So she exploded with laughter when the ‘fireman’ at her living wake showed off his ‘hose’! And did she keep her hands to herself? What do you think?! A rude awakening of another kind visited poor Mel on p44, who liked to let it all hang…

our mad world!

Comedy TOT BUBBLE TROUBLE Ever wondered what happens when a foot spa goes wrong? My little girl Mia found out the fun way! Richard Adams, Halesowen, West Midlands UK When special constable Keith Smith tried to stop a suspicious driver, he gave chase in his cop car. When the criminal stopped and did a runner on foot, Keith did likewise and caught his man – 45 years his junior! Keith is the UK’s oldest copper at 74. NEW FOR GENTS Breastfeeding for fellas has taken a technological leap forward with a state of the art Japanese invention called the Father Nursing Assistant. Great, but when did blokes resting a feeding bottle on their moobs go out of fashion?

EastEnders Ben pushes on with his plan to fleece Phil, despite hitting obstacles at every turn: Jay and Lola are getting close again, Phil asks Keanu to get involved in the new venture, and even when Ben offers to do a job for Danny, that Phil turned down, Mitchell Jr gets a knockback – initially. But new Ben (literally, in every way!) is resilient and determined. New Ben has got a very nasty streak and will do what it takes to get what he wants. Watch out Walford! Elsewhere… Mel does all she can to get Jack to change his mind about evicting her. Although Jack cares for Mel, he isn’t a walkover and sees through her games. So Mel only has one trick left up her sleeve and genuinely apologises for…

not dead yet!

The door of the sunbed salon where I worked opened and my cousin, Lisa, appeared. ‘Hi, Hel, I’ll just sit and read my magazine until you’ve finished,’ she said innocently. ‘She’s got that look in her eye,’ I thought. ‘It’s going to be one of those nights.’ Sure enough, a few hours later, after a pub crawl, we were in a club, downing sambuca shots. Dragging me onto the dance floor, Lisa whipped a hat off a lad’s head and put it on hers to do her crazy ‘funky chicken’ strut, which always had us in stitches. Then we carried on partying at a friend’s place, getting home at first light to crash out for a few hours. At 2pm, Lisa cooked us a full English breakfast and we reviewed her antics. ‘You were…

the party’s over

We realised it was 6am. My terminally ill cousin and I had partied all night long. She was covered in bruises the next day, but that just amused her all the more. Racing through her emergency bucket list, we had a few days with another cousin in Fuerteventura, then the two of us went back to Majorca. I could see Lisa was going downhill, but she said, ‘We’re leaving cancer in a locker at the airport. Let’s not talk about it while we’re away.’ She was struggling to walk, but no one except me would have known it, as she lay on her sun lounger, jiggling to loud music. ‘You’ll have to drink for two,’ she told me. ‘One way or another, we’ll be carrying each other home.’ Back in the UK, failing fast, she…

His black Corvette screeched to a halt in front of the ice cream parlour, and all the waitresses pouted as Paul Snider swaggered in. It was 1978, and Paul, 26, with his pencil moustache and leather trousers, honed in on one girl. He knew a meal ticket when he saw one. Blonde Dorothy Stratten, 17, had the face of an angel and a killer body. Everyone knew she was the most beautiful girl in Vancouver, Canada. And everyone knew Paul Snider worked in modelling… Over dinner, he told Dorothy she was gorgeous and convinced her to pose for nude photos, which he sent off to Playboy. Soon, she was on a plane bound for Los Angeles and stardom. Her rise was meteoric. She was Playmate of the Year for 1980, aged 20. Paul, who she’d married, stuck to her…
