from the editor

i have been hundreds of different Claires in my life. There was the Spice Girls superfan. Goth Claire (aged 14 to… well, still now, really). The wannabe fashionista I tried so hard to be (before I realised high-end fashion magazines were just not my natural home). I’ve been blonde, brunette and fuchsia pink. In the space of a single day I go from wearing the floaty dress that makes me feel confident for a meeting to the sweats and scrunchie that make me feel off-duty when I’m at home. But just between us? Sometimes I feel like a fake – somehow guilty for wanting to try new looks, new hobbies, new personalities. I worry I should have figured out which exact version of “me” I am by now, that I’m…

the infinite influence of will smith

TOM CRUISE Long-standing rumours that Tom had recruited Will (and Jada) into Scientology have been vehemently denied by the pair, but rumour also has it that they once played hide and seek in Tom’s mansion. OPRAH WINFREY Perhaps the most influential friend a person can have, so it’s a huge deal that Will and Jada were two of the guests invited to appear on the grand finale of The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2011. The Hollywood equivalent of being selected for lunch with The Plastics. KERRY KATONA Yes, THE Will Smith met our Kezza in the green room of The Jonathan Ross Show in 2007, where she claims he blurted out, “Your breasts are massive!” To which Kezza replied, “I know, love.” We doubt they’re pen pals but she’s been nothing but nice about him…

truth or scare?

THE SHINING (1980) What’s it about? The Torrance family move to an empty hotel so dad Jack can work as a winter caretaker, but he becomes increasingly violent. Blood spills follow. But what’s it about really? It’s based on spooky happenings at The Stanley Hotel in the Rocky Mountains, USA, where guests claim to have seen ghostly children playing in the halls. Apparently the infamous room 217 is home to the ghost of a chambermaid who endlessly cleans the room she’s trapped in. Like a scary Mrs Hinch. And now? You can still stay at the hotel. Their wedding package includes a complimentary dancefloor. How romantic. How scared should we be? You’ll be safe in your (far from empty) Holiday Inn, don’t worry. VERÓNICA (2017) What’s it about? Teenage Veronica and two friends try to…

ask me anything

What do you love most about Brits? I’m obsessed with the UK and have been since I was 13. I know the difference between accents. I fancy the Northern accent a lot. I love the British sense of humour. And I love Simon Cowell! You shared a house with Katie Hopkins on Celebrity Big Brother in 2015. How was that? She had the opportunity to become the nation’s sweetheart and decided to make a deal with the devil for a paycheque. That made me sad for her and for her family. When she was given a secret task to rub Perez Hilton’s feet… I saw a lot of memes of me looking at her not buying a word she was saying – because I didn’t. I’m thinking: “This bitch isn’t going to touch…
