Prince Philip savages Phil: How king of daytime TV Schofield met his match when he was offered the interview of a lifetime with the Duke of Edinburgh
He may be the king of daytime television, but presenter Phillip Schofield met his match when offered the interview of a lifetime with Prince Philip. In a one-hour special to be shown tonight to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE), the notoriously dour - and sometime cantankerous - prince made clear he had little time for Schofield's apparent sycophancy. When the presenter revealed he would take part in a wing walk to raise funds for the scheme, Philip, in his typically pithy manner, asked: 'Who is trying to get rid of you?' In the programme, members of the royal family and celebrities including actress Joanna Lumley (top right) and Comedian David Walliams (bottom right) share their anecdotes of the 95-year-old Duke.
When Mrs Pot called Mrs Black extravagant! Anti-Brexit ex-minister Nicky Morgan attacked the PM for wearing £995 leather trousers - but walks around Downing Street with a £950 Mulberry bag (although she's keen to point out it was a gift)
The MP - nicknamed Ms U-turn for her frequent changes of policy when she was Education Secretary - has been pictured on numerous occasions (right) carrying the luxury oxblood brown leather Bayswater bag from upmarket brand Mulberry. Last week she laid into the Prime Minister after Mrs May wore designer leather trousers worth £995 for a magazine photo-shoot (left), suggesting it would not go down well with her constituents 'in Loughborough market'. The row led to Mrs Morgan being banned from a No 10 meeting after a spat erupted with one of Mrs May's most senior aides.
Coffee shop festive treats that are full of sugar: How those cream-topped, syrup-flavoured drinks can contain up to 13 teaspoons
Last week we learnt that cakes at High Street coffee shops can contain astonishing amounts of sugar. Now, as Christmas draws near, they have rolled out their cream-topped, syrup-flavoured 'festive' drinks, costing more than their normal equivalents and also super-sweet. MATTHEW BELL tried some... He said of Starbucks' fudge hot chocolate: magine putting a Crunchie bar in a blender, then adding sugar and cream. The gold curls create a cheerful first impression but dissolved into a film that clung to my lips, leaving a strange synthetic flavour. I tried a classic hot chocolate afterwards and it tasted bitter compared with this sugary (but heart-warming) slurry.
Christians under siege: Funeral for 24 worshippers slaughtered by Islamist suicide bomber as they prayed at Coptic chapel in Cairo
Egypt's Coptic Christian community held a funeral service today for 24 Christians killed as they worshipped at a chapel next to the faith's main cathedral in Cairo - one of the deadliest attacks against them by Islamist terrorists. Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said today the atrocity had been carried out by a 22-year-old suicide bomber, who walked into Sunday Mass at a chapel adjacent to St Mark's Cathedral, seat of the ancient Coptic Christian church. The coffins of the victims were laid in front of the altar today (pictured, left) as the spiritual leader of Egypt's Orthodox Christians, Pope Tawadros II, led the service. Grief (top right) and anger (bottom right) was etched on the faces of relatives of the dead. Egypt's President identified the suicide bomber as 22-year-old Shafik Mahmoud Mohamed Mostafa (inset, left).
This e-cig is the bomb! North Korean guard is amazed by electronic cigarette after finding it in British tourist's bag and mistaking it for explosives - before giving it a try
A baffled North Korean border railway guard took his first puff of an electronic cigarette that he confiscated from British tourist Del Dinsdale (inset). The official thought the e-cig was a 'bomb' but gave it a try once Mr Dinsdale explained it was a vapour cigarette. Strict rules in the communist country means tourists are usually forbidden from taking photos of officials but the guard was so amazed that he happily posed for photos.
