I love the idea of upcycling and giving a new lease of life to the less aesthetically pleasing items around my house then, in turn, granting them pride of place in their new form. But, if I’m honest, I am all talk and rarely indulge the persistent desire to create a masterpiece. Does this resonate with anyone? This week (p44) we talk to Miffy Shaw, who upcycled recycled (yes, really) materials to create her dream kitchen. Proof you really can turn trash into treasure. I’m not sure I’m ready to take on the kitchen, but she has inspired me to drag our old chest out of storage and make it look loved again. Also this week, are you sleeping too much? Unlikely in this house, but find out with our quiz…

IT’S REVEALED THAT MERYL AND ANNA ARE RELATED! It turns out that her starring role as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada is not Meryl Streep’s only connection to the world of fashion. The platform MyHeritage, who explore family histories, claim that the actor and the Vogue mogul Anna Wintour are, in fact, cousins! Eighth cousins, that is – the famous pair share their seventh great-grandparents on their maternal side. It’s a small world… PET OF THE WEEK It looks like David Walliams was enjoying quality time with his pets before bed, perhaps more than they were! SUSANNA Dumped! Ever since Piers Morgan made his dramatic exit from Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid has been without a permanent partner – having had Richard Madeley, Adil Ray and Alastair Campbell joining her on the ITV show…

The Royal Family is bracing itself for new bombshells as Harry and Meghan’s lucrative deals in America start to blossom. By the time celebrations to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee get into full swing next year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be well and truly in the limelight. Far from living a quieter life away from the media, the Sussexes are expected to stay firmly front and centre as their many projects come into fruition. Last week, we revealed how the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s palace staff were struggling to second-guess what the Sussexes would do next. Here we look at some of the key endeavours in the pipeline that may just cause some sleepless nights at the palace… The reality show Netflix is expected to release the first of several fly-on-the-wall-style…

Their story started nearly 50 years ago and, despite launching their career back in the 1970s, ABBA – made up of Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – are still one of the best-known groups on the planet. Now the band are set to break their 40-year hiatus with their new album Voyage as well as their groundbreaking concert ABBA Voyage. Set to take place in a purpose-built arena in London, the show will feature holograms, new music and live performers. To celebrate the band’s reunion, we’ve taken a look back at their biggest career moments… Name change 1973 The two couples – Björn and Agnetha, and Benny and Anni-Frid, known as Frida – went on holiday in 1970, and gave an impromptu performance to United Nations soldiers. It gave…

KATE AND CAMILLA GO HEAD-TO-HEAD The stark contrast between our two ‘queens-in-waiting’ was laid bare this month when Kate and Camilla went head-to-head. Privately they share a bond in knowing that both their husbands will one day be king. However, it seems that’s where the similarities appear to end. The gulf between the two women was exposed when a diary clash pitted the Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to the Lake District against the Duchess of Cornwall’s engagement in Scotland. On the one hand, the Duchess of Cambridge sent royal fans into a frenzy when pictures of her joined by Holocaust survivors in a small wooden boat were picked up and published all over the world. Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cornwall’s visit to an art gallery with Prince Charles in Aberdeen went virtually unnoticed. Of course, Kate…

There’s no doubt the most crucial issue facing the future of our planet is the climate-change crisis. A man-made ticking time bomb, it’s a race against the clock to cut carbon emissions and ensure the world is still inhabitable by 2050, and activists are doing all they can to draw attention to the issues. But when eco-warriors belonging to the group Insulate Britain blocked the M25 several times last month, gluing themselves to the tarmac and causing hours of traffic jams, resulting in an elderly woman suffering a life-changing stroke when her son was unable to get her to hospital, they were met with hostility and a lack of support from the public. Protesting is a key element of pushing for change, but when lives are put in danger, it’s easy to…
