this week in your fab value

We’ve come a long way from the days of ‘tramp stamps’. Remember them? That bloomin’ rude name for a tattoo on a woman’s lower back. You might have one, and why not? We’ve thankfully all stopped being so judgy and now see ink as art and expressing ourselves. Women can have full sleeves, decorated legs, even face tattoos and hardly anyone turns a hair. But I wonder, will you do a double-take at Tyler’s inking – not so much tramp stamp as saucy knickers! Game-for-a-laugh Tyler has had a tat of a thong needled into his skin just above his buttocks. But before you start thinking about how he’ll regret it when he’s old, turn to p44 and read about why he’s had it done. Far from being a beered-up lout…

our mad world!

Cute KIDS GISSA KISS! Here’s my daughter, Lara, making a new friend at the farm. She’s a brave girl! Lucy Cocker, by email AUSTRALIA When MJ, a whopping 15ft croc, died, a post-mortem to discover the cause of death revealed an orthopaedic plate with five steel screws in his gut. A UK-based medical expert believed the device had come from a human bone and could have been in there for years! FULL OF HOT AIR! Ever feel you’re being watched by something much bigger than you? They do in Bristol. A massive Darth Vader flew over for the city’s annual hot air balloon festival, with a giant koala and panther also hovering by. The world is full of peculiar place names... • Batman, Turkey • Eggs And Bacon Bay, Tasmania • The Office Girls, Antarctica • Punkeydoodles Corners, Ontario • Disappointment Islands, French…

soap on a rope

East Enders Hunter’s hiding out in mum Mel’s basement and she’s really feeling the pressure. First priority is fixing him and finding some meds because Hunter is not in a good way. A quick look on Dr Google and a bogus offer to support Sharon (who has an amniocentesis appointment at Walford General) later and Mel has what she needs – apart from a pile of cash and two passports, which she also sorts – so off they go. As if! No, no, no. Ben’s on to Mel. He knows something’s up, plus Hunter’s escape has made front page news. And Hunter himself, it seems, has no intention of being back on the Square and missing an opportunity to exact revenge on Jack. The plot thickens indeed… Elsewhere… If that isn’t enough drama…

water you playing at ?

Water fell on me – a cascade of hot little needles of pleasure. They pummelled my scalp and turned my skin rosy pink... ‘Ahhhh,’ I sighed, feeling the day’s pressures sluice away. ‘Arms up,’ a voice said softly. Lifting them, I felt two big, tender hands get to work, soaping down my pits. They belonged to my fella, Sam Robinson, 22. Boy, was he devoted. But then, caring was, literally, his job. Mine, too. In fact, that’s how we’d met. We worked for the same company and, in 2009, found ourselves at the same training course in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. I’d spotted all 6ft 4in of handsome Sam in the crowd. Then, after the lectures, one of my mates went over and started chatting to him. A mutual friend – bingo! We all piled over to another pal’s that evening…

you dirty rat

The song was a tribute to a man Sam had cared for who’d died recently – the song played at his funeral. Now Sam had insisted on it for our first dance as man and wife. A funeral song for our wedding. Why didn’t it strike me as an omen? Because, clinging to Sam as we swayed, our 120 guests looking on, my heart zinged with love. I told myself everything was going to be OK. We had a trip booked to Cancun in Mexico, but there was no honeymoon period for us. That little kiss – such a nothing, as I’d told myself – was very hard to forget. We began arguing over every little thing, and Sam was so distant. All the nice little romantic surprises dried up. In November 2015, he packed his bags. ‘I’m…
