WHAT A STRANGE, surreal and scary week it’s been. Like a lot of you, the entire Grazia team is now working from home; simultaneously worrying about our family and friends, not to mention the heroic frontline workers battling this pandemic, all while navigating a world where work now means dressing from the waist up for video conference calls and negotiating with flatmates/partners about who gets to set up their laptop where. Earlier this week, we asked you online what you wanted from Grazia in these uncertain times. The answers ranged from covering coronavirus in a way that matters to you, to providing useful information and light relief. I hope this week’s issue goes some way to answering that mix. We’ve got advice for cooped-up couples (p12), a tailor-made workout you can…

Yes, I’m firmly Labour, despite its current condition and have kissed a Tory and didn’t conceal my political allegiance, but that’s what got me in that situation in the first place. Besides, doesn’t that just make for angry, self-satisfying sex for both parties? Pun totally intended. A total win-win as far as I’m concerned.

letter of the week

UK MUST DO BETTER Of course we are all living in unprecedented times, but reading Italy: Living In Lockdown (23 Mar) I couldn’t help but think that other countries are taking the coronavirus more seriously than the UK – and this worries me greatly. The pandemic is wreaking havoc. No one is immune or safe from getting seriously ill. But the UK doesn’t seem to be doing enough. I was shocked that my elderly mother (who lives in London in sheltered housing) had a visit from an engineer for an annual boiler service. Couldn’t this have waited? We’ve been telling her to stay in but what can she do when the local council is sending people to her home? PR…

To the heroes on the frontline: thank you “As we settle into a new world of social distancing, it’s easy to complain about cabin fever or cancelled plans. But it is the workers on the frontline who we need to think about: from our doctors, nurses and pharmacists to the supermarket workers, drivers and delivery people risking their health for our online shop. The vital work they are doing leaves them more exposed than most – and if we ignore advice to take this seriously and stay inside where possible, we will only make their jobs harder. But we will get through this, thanks to their sacrifices and dedication and our commitment to pull together and look out for society as a whole.”…

coronavirus: a brand new moral framework

HOW’S YOUR GLOBAL pandemic experience going? Roller-coaster, right? Me: I’m fluctuating between epic, pointless, existential fear, and pre-emptive irritation in case my fancy yoga holiday to Portugal gets cancelled. I’ve scoffed at Twitter for being, essentially, a squillion people screaming AAAAARGH WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!, then fully freaked out because uh… when, exactly, did I get these weird ridges on my tongue-tip? Why are there weird ridges on my tongue-tip? Someone google weird tongue-tip ridges and coronavirus symptoms NOW! But when I’m not doing that … I’m mesmerised by us. Have you seen us lately? How we’re managing. How we’re exposed (moral compass-wise, not virally). Where once we were right or left, Leave or Remain, Metropolitan Elite or provincial realness, Piers Morgan or Jameela Jamil, we are now divided along entirely…

1. Up JÜRGEN KLOPP Responded to the Premier League’s decision to put all footballing on hold with extraordinary equanimity, despite Liverpool being on the verge of an epic triumph. We need more of this. 2. Up DAWN WARD The Real Housewives Of Cheshire returns, and thank the gods of ITVBe! The uncompromising, unfazable, literal and metaphorical nails of DW is what we need right now. 3. Non-mover NAOMI CAMPBELL No one did social distancing better, or more stylishly, or earlier, than NC. We thought she was mad. Now, we think she Knows Stuff. 4. Non-mover DONALD GLOVER Providing some excellent light relief by live streaming a new album in the midst of everything, and being gracious enough to still look as he does. 5. Up TREVOR NOAH The Daily Show’s comely and funny comedian whose existence had passed us by until recently, for which…
