Stringfellow's dogs fly by private jet: Nightclub magnate reveals his Chihuahuas will fly on their own from Italy to Spain
Nightclub magnate Peter Stringfellow has hired a private plane to transport his beloved dogs from his holiday home in Spain to Italy
Are these four dogs the world’s most pampered pooches?
Nightclub magnate Peter Stringfellow has hired a private plane to transport his beloved dogs from his holiday home in Spain to Italy.
They will have their own stewardess, two pilots and VIP escorts at either end.
The Tory donor will not be joining chihuahuas Cindy and Ollie and Yorkshire terriers Rocky and Millie on board, but aims to follow them later on an easyJet flight.
‘I might be a man of the people, but my dogs aren’t,’ says Stringfellow.
‘The dogs have spent their lives in Majorca and wouldn’t like English weather. They live better than I do. They were all born in Spain, but speak very good English,’ he jokes.
Stringfellow, 76, who has two adult children from previous marriages, became a father again three years ago when his third wife Bella, a convent-educated former ballerina 41 years his junior, gave birth to a daughter. The couple’s second child, a son, was born last year and named Angelo.
The table-dancing impresario divides his time between London and Majorca, but is selling his Spanish home, where his pooches currently reside, and is relocating to Puglia. The dogs will live in Italy with his sister-in-law, who runs kennels, until he buys a new holiday home there.
Stringfellow, who owns the eponymous club in Covent Garden and Angels in Soho, is said to pay himself £1 million a year from the revenues of his clubs. The lothario famously invited Margaret Thatcher to tour Stringfellows in 2005 and donated the use of the club for the Iron Lady to hold a fundraiser.
To spare her blushes, the pole-dancing poles were removed and the scantily clad dancers given a night off.
Tate boss Sir Nicholas Serota disclosed yesterday an unlikely visitor to the Turner Prize exhibition. ‘My assistant said: “You’ll never guess who was here — Michael Gove. He was looking very carefully at one piece and when I came back to check, he was still staring at it.”’
Former Tory minister Gove had slammed this year’s winner as producing ‘modish c**p’. Sadly for Sir Nicholas, despite Gove’s extended engagement with the Turner contenders, he saw little to alter his view that the prize represented the tedious efforts of a ‘smug clique’.
Kate Moss's model half-sister Lottie has jetted off on a winter holiday to Barbados with her friends.
The 18-year-old Calvin Klein model paraded her slender physique on the beach in nothing but a skimpy grey bikini.

She is pictured with her friend Jess Woodley, 24, who stars in the reality series Made in Chelsea. Awkwardly, they were also joined by Jess’s co-star Alex Mytton, who is currently dating Lottie, but once had a fling with Jess.
‘How the hell have I ended up on holiday with my ex and his new girlfriend?’ Jess asked in a post online. Quite.
Fashion is mourning society photographer Tessa Codrington, wife of Ukip treasurer Stuart Wheeler and mother of top model Jacquetta.
She has died at the age of 72 after losing a decade-long battle against a rare form of cancer — a neuroendocrine tumour.
Two years ago she appeared in an advertising campaign alongside Jacquetta (right).
Jacquetta, 35, paid tribute to her mother on social media with a picture of her holding her first-born, Sam, by husband Jamie Allsopp.
‘Mummy how I wish you’d lived for much, much longer,’ she wrote. ‘Thank you for being a true inspiration. I will miss you so much.’
