‘my kids are mortified by me!’

Claudia Winkleman has a wonderful self-deprecating sense of humour that makes her instantly likeable when you meet her. In person, the Strictly presenter is exactly like she is on TV – amusing, vivacious and eager to put others at ease. But she confesses she never watches her shows, so doesn’t view Strictly or Best Home Cook. ‘I’ve never watched myself and I can’t imagine how irritating I am,’ confesses the 47-year-old presenter and mum of three, who’s been married since 2000 to film producer Kris Thykier. She continues with the joke. ‘I don’t even believe Best Home Cook goes out on telly. It’s just something my parents have created to make me feel good about myself, so I’m delighted Barry and Eve got you here today so that I don’t feel like my…

what happens if the queen retires?

Big birthday The Queen will turn 95 in April 2021 and it is increasingly speculated that after a lifetime of service she might use this milestone to take a well-deserved but unofficial ‘retirement’ from official duties – while still remaining as the British monarch. In Charles at Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams, Robert Jobson suggests the Queen could ‘trigger a period of regency’ at the age of 95 that will give her eldest son the ‘full power to reign’. So she wouldn’t be abdicating, but the Prince of Wales would carry out royal duties in her name. Abdication Despite a palace insider saying she had given ‘considerable thought’ to ‘passing the reign to Charles’, a separate royal expert reveals that’s not officially possible. ‘The Queen cannot retire without abdicating,’ they insist. A ‘shadow king’? While…

the queen’s top 10 moments

1 Elizabeth ascended the throne aged just 25 after learning her father, King George VI, had died. 2 Her coronation on 2 June 1953 was a national event and the first ever to be broadcast on television. 3 She juggled the early years of her reign with raising a young family. 4 The Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977 marked 25 years on the throne. 5 In 1992, Windsor Castle caught fire. The Queen was widely praised for showing strength and dignity in a difficult situation. 6 In 1997, she paid a touching tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, after she died in a car crash. ‘She never lost her capacity to smile and laugh, nor to inspire others with her warmth and kindness,’ she said. 7 The Queen became, in 2011, the first monarch to visit…

8 nutrition truths & myths

1 Eat little and often The fact is, constant grazing is one of the main reasons health experts think that we have an obesity problem. And our obsession with snacking has spawned a multimillion-pound industry that encourages us to eat even more between meals. Try to stick to three balanced meals a day without snacks to help keep your weight under control and give your digestion a rest, says GP Dr Melanie Wynne-Jones. ‘Fasting – no snacking and/or prolonging the time between your evening meal and breakfast the next day – can help blood sugar and insulin levels and other metabolic processes.’ 2 Fat is bad On the contrary, fat is absolutely essential to health. ‘It’s really important to eat optimum amounts of good-quality fats, such as olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds,’ says…
