Lady Kitty lover's ex dates his dead ringer: Property developer's former wife reveals her new boyfriend 

Earl Spencer’s daughter Lady Kitty, 25, is not shy about parading her millionaire boyfriend 20 years her senior, Niccolo Barattieri, at society events.

Now the Italian property developer’s ex-wife, society jeweller Sofia Barattieri, is proving she, too, has moved on after their marriage ended in 2011 by revealing her new lover — who is also a dead ringer for Niccolo.

Sofia, 50, who has three children with Niccolo aged seven, 11 and 14, shared this snap of her dashing boyfriend, American-born financier Brian Weinstein, 51, as she plants a kiss on his cheek.

‘Life is a collection of moments,’ Sofia captions it.

 

Fabulously wealthy actor Sir Ian McKellen, 77, gives advice to less successful thesps on the fraught matter of auditions: ‘Try to avoid them,’ he says, adding: ‘Don’t be too depressed when you finish if you don’t hear from them again — would you want to be in a production where you weren’t welcome, anyway?’ 

Not much chance of that for The Hobbit’s much-lauded Gandalf, who is said to be worth £50 million.

Lingerie model Daisy Lowe admits that since appearing on Strictly Come Dancing she has shed weight

 Is Daisy Strictly slimmer than ever?

Lingerie model Daisy Lowe admits that since appearing on Strictly Come Dancing she has shed weight.

And, indeed, yesterday she appeared noticeably slimmer while taking time out for a stroll near her home in North London.

The 27-year-old wore a short floral mini dress and her favourite black military-style lace-up boots while walking her dog, Monty.

‘My weight yo-yos so much. It always has,’ she says. 

‘Now I’m trimmer because I have been dancing for about four hours a day. But I love food.’

 

Well-preserved model Elizabeth Hurley remains on remarkably good terms with her exes.

The actress’s former fiance, Australian cricket lothario Shane Warne, 47, reveals that he recently spent three hours on the phone to Hurley, 51. Perhaps the old goat was regaling poor Liz with details of his latest conquests . . .

 

 Springwatch Kate's chilly reception 

If wildlife presenter Kate Humble invites you over for dinner, it would be wise to slip on your thermals.

‘I try to put off the moment when the central heating comes on — not just because of the cost, but because my skin hates it,’ says Humble, 47, who lives on a farm in the Wye Valley with her husband, TV producer Ludo Graham.

‘I’ve done a huge amount of travelling this year — lots of flights and long days working outside — and it’s taken its toll.

‘So my poor skin needs all the nourishment it can get.’ Humble has spoken of how much she enjoys naturism, gushing: ‘There’s something joyous about it, and I urge everyone to try it.’

Only if you switch the heating on first, Kate.

 

Thandie: 'My costume is an invitation for sex'

Actress Thandie Newton, 43, admits she felt more at ease naked than in a corset on the set of her new tv series, Westworld, in which she plays a robot prostitute.

‘I was more comfortable naked, because the costume, by its design — and this is all completely conscious on their part — was to be the most potent objectification of a woman, with the boobs pushed right up, the tiny waist,’ says the married mother-of-three.

‘It’s an invitation for sex. The fishnet tights, the little heels with the laces. It’s all about sensuality. It’s about eroticism. It’s about look, but don’t touch. It’s all there to make the invitation for sex as provocative as possible and then the promise of satisfaction is practically just there.

‘They even made our skin shimmer, literally. That was part of our costume, to have skin that glowed as an invitation. It’s like we’re chocolate or huge burgers, just in the window of some restaurant.

‘But we’re fast food. And we’re sugar. And we’re salt. And we’re saturated fats.

‘We’re all those things that are just pretty much on the market for you to get addicted to them.’
