living life to the full

As I write this, I am on holiday in Turkey. It was a last-minute decision to pay for a holiday abroad this year. Normally, I wouldn’t write about my ‘time off’ – but looking out from my balcony onto the mountains around Kalkan, it was worth it. I’m buzzing with positivity – and there are still a few weeks when you can do the same (see page 86) – or at least plan your break for next year. I hear there aren’t many countries on the Red List now, so my advice (if you can), is go for it. We live but once… … Or twice, as a Bond film once said! In keeping with the new film, ‘Wendy Bond’ is living her best life on page 24 – a secret agent…

start your week with a smile

1 RUBY, YOU LITTLE DIAMOND! Look at this adorable endangered red panda kit! Born at Edinburgh Zoo, her name is… Ruby! Jo Elliott, animal collection manager, said, ‘We wanted a name which pays homage to red pandas and fits nicely with our previous kit’s name, Ruaridh. As she grows, Ruby’s fur will get redder.’ Visitors may have to wait a bit to spot three-month-old Ruby, as red panda kits stay in their den for four months. See edinburghzoo.org.uk 2 Who wowed the crowd? The carpet is red, but yellow is the current celeb choice. Amanda Holden, 50, channelled her inner Belle at a Disney event in Suzanne Neville, while No Time To Die star Lashana Lynch, 33, dazzled at the premiere in a Versace gown. She may have hung up her Strictly shoes,…

the woman making ulrika weep

Swedish star Ulrika Jonsson, 54, was left less than amused when she discovered what Victoria Beckham’s favourite meal was recently. The fashion designer admitted to a spectacularly bland go-to dish, confessing that she’s a restaurant’s ‘worst nightmare’. Mum-of-four Victoria, appearing on River Cafe’s Table 4 podcast, spoke of her love for wholegrain toast with salt on it – even when she’s out for dinner! Ulrika – who was a contestant on Celebrity MasterChef in 2018 – admitted that she was shocked by the former chart-topper’s foodie revelation… and claimed that hearing of Victoria’s stark menu choices made her ‘want to weep’. ‘I don’t wish to add to her woes, but to hear the ex-Spice Girl talk in a podcast about how she is sure she’s every restaurant’s worst nightmare as she likes simple meals…

‘she deserves our mercy’

In just the latest chapter in her roller-coaster existence, Katie Price was arrested when her BMW flipped on its side near her Sussex home – and subsequently pleaded guilty to drink-driving without insurance. The mum-of-five, 43, will be sentenced on 15 December, and could even face time behind bars – her sentencing was deferred so she can attend rehab (for the third time) at the Priory. The reality star who has admitted using cocaine in the past to ‘block things out’, is lucky to be alive after writing off her car on a country lane. But this is only the newest episode in a turbulent life, of late. Katie appeared with facial bruising in August after police were called to an Essex house, and a man was then arrested. Her current house is to be…

kate’s dramatic power move and a secret message…

She married Prince William in a fairytale ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 2011, but 10 years of Royal life and three children later – in which she has always been the loyal, measured, elegant wife – it feels like Kate Middleton has ‘arrived’. The world’s eyes were on the Duchess of Cambridge recently when she hit the No Time To Die premiere in that dramatic, floor-length, glistening gown. And from her sartorial body swerve at least, the 39-year-old is sending off a signal that this time, she means business. She made such a splash that it has since been revealed that the dress, which launched a thousand headlines, will now go on display as part of its designer Jenny Packham’s 007 collection. Mother-of-three Kate, whose former private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton said, ‘brings…

andrew and the queen’s millions

As Prince Andrew’s legal fight intensifies, reports have emerged that suggest that The Queen is going to personally foot the bill for his legal costs. As is well known, the Duke of York is defending himself against a claim by Virginia Roberts Giuffre that he sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, which he vehemently denies. He has expanded his legal team, with his counsel said to cost nearly £1,500 an hour. And with no income of his own, the Queen has stepped in, agreeing to fund it from her annual income from her private Duchy of Lancaster estate, which is worth more than £23 million.
