What a strange few weeks it’s been. My new pastime seems to be queuing outside petrol stations, only to get to the front and be told, Sorry, we ve run out. Who knew that 2021 would be full of such delights? Or that being a qualified HGV driver would be the job of the year? Another cohort of people who should be given key-worker status, for without them we come to a standstill. In the madness, though, we need some time out – and this week’s Woman provides the ultimate distraction! With all the hours waiting at fuel stations, I know I’ll be taking our food team up on their lazy baking recipes (p41) and I might even treat myself to a new winter coat (p18). It s been a…

what a week!

REBEL’S TRANSFORMATION Aussie actor Rebel Wilson, 41, rose to fame when she starred as ‘Fat Amy’ in Pitch Perfect, regularly making gags about her weight and, in some ways, holding the torch for larger women. But after dubbing 2020 her ‘year of health’ and losing 30kg (5st) Rebel’s transformation is nothing short of incredible. Just days after she posted a swimsuit snap to Instagram, she lit up the red carpet when she attended the Vanity Fair Museum Opening Party wearing a low-cut blazer dress. Rebel told fans, ‘It’s never too late to improve yourself – to improve your health, your heart, your happiness, your harmony.’ PET OF THE WEEK By blending into her coat, Laura Whitmore’s pooch can travel everywhere with the presenter. Dog or coat, the Uber driver will never know… Holly to quit This…

i will always stand my man by ’

The crisis-hit Duke of York continues to enjoy the unwavering support of the woman he divorced a quarter of a century ago. Throughout the summer, as the crisis has deepened, the Duchess of York has barely left his side. Now sources close to the duo – who have been pictured together in Balmoral over recent weeks – say Fergie is willing to do ‘whatever it takes’ to help Andrew fight the potentially devastating civil case in America. The Queen’s second son is being sued by Virginia Giuffre for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager. She is seeking unspecified damages, but there is speculation the sum could be in the millions of dollars. Virginia’s case hinges on claims she was trafficked by Andrew’s former friend, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, to…

wear your cake and eat it

MULTICOLOURED MARY Mary Berry’s floral bomber, worn during the 2017 series, showed striking resemblance to baker Kate’s incredible rainbow meringue creation from the same series. Mary’s choice of jacket went viral and fans soon found out it was from Zara – bargain! DAME PRUE’S COLOUR-BLOCKING The lipstick-red tunic Dame Prue wore during the 2018 run of the popular C4 show appeared to have taken inspiration from the 2013 series, when the bakers were given the difficult task of creating a hidden design inside their cakes. DAME PRUE’S BOTANICALS Looking lovely in colourful florals, Dame Prue Leith’s brightly coloured wardrobe choices were apparent again when this year’s GBBO began. Her vibrant tunic reminded us of Jane’s botanical-inspired cake from the 2017 series. NOEL IN TURQUOISE Taking vibrancy to a whole new level, Noel Fielding’s jazzy optical-illusion shirt from…

the royal insider

WARDROBE WARS: KATE V MEGHAN When is an outfit more than just an outfit…? When it’s worn by a duchess. If ever you need proof of how important the choice of clothes plays in royal life, then look no further than Meghan and Kate’s recent outings on opposite sides of the Atlantic. In New York, the Duchess of Sussex – self-appointed patron saint of worthiness – glided through Manhattan to read extracts of her new book to underprivileged pupils at the PS 123 school in Harlem. But emerging from her gas-guzzling entourage of blacked-out vehicles, the duchess’ arrival at the inner-city academy was more Hillary Clinton than Mother Teresa. Venturing into a school where nine out of 10 children are from families too poor to buy them lunch, you might think a celebrity visitor would…

why are we still not safe?

Six months since we mourned Sarah Everard, 33, we’re grieving once again, this time for primary-school teacher Sabina Nessa, 28. Sabina was walking through a park five minutes from home in south-east London, going to meet a friend, when she was killed. A man, 36 – thought to be a stranger – has been charged with murder. A horrific, tragic, yet painfully familiar story. The outcry following Sarah’s abduction, rape and murder was inflamed following recent revelations that Metropolitan police officer Wayne Couzens, 48 – now serving a whole-life sentence – used his warrant card to handcuff and ‘arrest’ her under the guise of breaking lockdown rules. Yet, as Sabina’s family grieve, it’s clear nothing has changed to end this epidemic of violence against women and girls. With 97% of young women…
