It has been hailed as a step in the right direction for victims of domestic violence – last week Sally Challen, who killed her husband Richard after decades of psychological abuse, won an appeal to have her murder conviction quashed, to the relief of her two sons, who have campaigned tirelessly on her behalf. There will now be a retrial for Sally, 65, who had sought to have her conviction reduced to manslaughter. She has already served eight years in prison, despite enduring 40 years of abuse. The decision suggests the criminal justice system now understands the seriousness of coercive control and, finally, victims are being given the justice they deserve. Let’s hope this sets a precedent for how future victims are treated in the courts.…

1 UP MAHERSHALA ALI IN SPECS At last week’s Oscars. Maybe prescription; maybe, pretentious-clear. Who cares? They were the thing we didn’t realise his beautiful face was missing, until now. 2 NON-MOVER CARA DELEVINGNE Has spent something in the region of $25,000 (or £19,000) on takeaways since 2014, according to the courier service app that wrangled them. Gosh. 3. UP VICKY MCCLURE Line Of Duty is about to return, which means more V McC, a prospect that always makes us happy. We love her, and very much hope she doesn’t die in this series. (They do, you know.) 4. NON-MOVER BARACK OBOMBER How we shall refer to him forevermore, or until our memory of him, pictured last week en bomber, fades; which might well be never. 5. NEW IN BENJAMIN CLEMENTINE Poet, artist, man who turned up in Milan in double-breasted mint-green Gucci last…

It’s International Women’s Day soon; I can tell because I’m inundated by phone calls from people asking me to work for free. ‘We know how much you love inspiring young women,’ they say, a sentiment intended to flatter me, only it doesn’t, because when have I ever said I love inspiring young women? I don’t ! Next comes the bit where they ask me to do something unpaid, out of the goodness of my feminist heart, for International Women’s Day, aka a day where women should gather and volunteer our time, wit and wisdom FOR FREE. When I turn ’em down on the grounds that the excellent hair and wardrobe they’d expect me to wear while appearing on their panel/speed-mentoring/hastily-cobbled-together-faux-award-giving event won’t pay for itself… Oh! They get affronted! How dare I…

1 truth behind gaga and bradley’s romance rumours

WHEN LADY GAGA and Bradley Cooper performed at the Oscars last week, fans on social media went wild over their ‘intense chemistry’. The performance was so intimate that a barrage of memes and rumours followed, speculating that the A Star Is Born co-stars were secretly dating. ‘Um, should we leave? Seems like they want to be alone,’ wrote one Twitter user, while another said: ‘I’m sorry, but if you’re Bradley’s [girlfriend], aren’t you… just… slightly… nervous?’ The next day, photos of Bradley, 44, and Gaga, 32, at an Oscars after-party surfaced, showing them deep in conversation with their arms around one another. Speculation intensified when Bradley’s ex-wife, Jennifer Esposito, joined the conversation (she wrote ‘Ha’ on an Instagram post of Bradley and Gaga performing). It then reached fever pitch when Irina…

plus, what is the etiquette behind the insta-unfollow?

Uh oh, the unfollow. Poor old Irina is supposedly so bored of the rumours about her boyfriend Bradley and Lady Gaga that she’s unfollowed the singer on both Instagram and Twitter. Unfollowing’s a brutal move, these days, when we all have two lives: real and online. Clicking that unfollow button – or realising someone’s done it to you – can make you feel winded, like you’ve been punched in the throat. The playground equivalent of ‘I don’t want to be friends with you any more’. It may be for a variety of reasons – fallouts, break-ups, irritation with that person’s incessant posting of their dog, their baby or their frigging hair. But now that Instagram’s given us a ‘mute’ button, as on Twitter, an unfollow is a more public, provocative declaration. If you’re…
