UK celebrity chef’s pubs under administration

Four pubs trading under Marco Pierre White’s name are in financial trouble after suppliers were allegedly let down and bills went unpaid.

Staff at one of the country inns said the administrators just walked in without warning on Monday, while another employee said the celebrity chef began stripping the businesses of fixtures and fittings last week.

Three Norfolk pubs that trade under Pierre White’s Wheeler’s of St James’s brand – The Chequers Inn, The Wayford Bridge Hotel and the Lifeboat Inn – have gone into administration, as has The Acle Bridge Inn, also in Norfolk.

They are all part of the Horatio Inns Ltd group of which Pierre White is listed as a director.

The development is the latest in a difficult chapter for Pierre White, who has severed links with five pubs over the last few years.

Celebrities bag limelight with very own designs 

It is not every day you can pick up a Fendi bag designed by Rihanna or Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw herself, Sarah Jessica Parker. But thanks to the Italian brand’s latest project – and bank balance permitting, of course – you now can.

The singer and actress have joined British model Jourdan Dunn, Man Repeller founder Leandra Medine and artist Rachel Feinstein to create their very own versions of the 3Baguette, the newest member of the Fendi bag family, launched in December.

The five exclusive designs will be auctioned off via Fendi’s website from February 13, and all the proceeds from the sales will go to the charities chosen by the stars.

Until they are sold, the bags will be on display in Fendi’s new Madison Avenue, New York, flagship store.

getimage (1)Different concept for Live Ear th’s climate concerts

Pharrell Williams and former US vice-president Al Gore have announced a second run of Live Earth concerts to raise awareness of climate change.

The events, on June 18, will take place across all seven continents.

Creative director Williams, who won the Grammy Award for producer of the year in 2014, said: “Instead of just having people perform, we are going to have humanity harmonise all at once. In the 2007 concerts you had pundits and comedians who didn’t understand global warming. We wanted to do something very different this time.”

Katie Price tells of overly well endowed boyfriends 

Katie  Price said that she once dated a man who was so well endowed that it “kept hitting” her cervix resulting in her getting cystitis. She said it was difficult to broach the subject with him because he did not speak English very well.

Speaking on reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother , the singer said: “When you have sex with someone you can’t speak along with it’s weird.”

There is now speculation as to who the man could be, but it’s not likely to be Danny Cipriani, about whom she did not talk in a favourable light.

“In my experience he was a bit – erm – lean in the most obvious departments. That is why I nicknamed him Danny Chipolata.”
