“Well, everyone’s dying you know” chirped Debbie Reynolds halfway through what was possibly our favourite interview ever. A bona fide Hollywood legend who starred in Singing In The Rain when she was just 18 and served nearly two decades at MGM during the age of the musical, Reynolds is a fountain of gossip, grim wit and good cheer. She lost her first husband very publically to her old school friend Elizabeth Taylor, and spent a year and a half living in a car after her second spouse gambled away all their money. She watched numerous high profile friends succumb to drink and drugs, and now, at 78, finds herself one of the last living survivors of Hollywood’s golden era (although she still chats twice a week with Taylor). But Reynolds is first and foremost a movie fan, with the largest collection of memorabilia on the planet. And when she arrives in town next week on her first UK tour in 36 years, a large part of her variety show will be impressions of the likes of Betty Davis and Katharine Hepburn. As she joked, “I learnt from the best”. In other strong woman news, we’re giving away a £180 place on Fitbitch boot camp in Competitions; and this month’s Wave features nutritionist Jacquie Lane’s tips for surviving – and maybe even enjoying – the menopause. Apparently in many cultures it’s a cause to party. No doubt we’ll have a festival dedicated to it here in Brighton soon enough. Other extremely useful stuff this issue: a heads up on the Theatre Royal’s new season in Bookings, how to get the most out of your pumpkin seeds (see Food & Drink – condensed read: chew), and eight pages of Easter TV treats.

’ve started listening to modern music, or as my friends call it... music. I’ve avoided it ever since I bought a Kooks album on the same day as Razorlight’s album and realised that I couldn’t tell the difference between any of the songs on either CD. They all seemed to mould into a droning, indie blur. So I started listening to only retro music. I learnt that as long as it was more than 10 years old then it was definitely cool. Whilst it is unacceptable to listen to Busted, The Monkees are totally in. I used to know nothing about music. I thought Queens Of The Stone Age were a Rolling Stones tribute act and that Fleetwood Mac was something you bought at Thorpe Park when it was raining. When I first went to see the musical We Will Rock You, I had to ask my parents on the journey up who these ‘Queen’ people were and why everyone kept talking about someone called Freddie. Now, Queen are one of my favourite bands. I’ve seen We Will Rock You four times. In my purest hypocrisy I will now ridicule anyone who hasn’t listened to the Live In Frankfurt bootlegs – have you been living under a pile of your own melodic ignorance? My friends kept recommending bands to me that I’d never heard of, like the ‘Thing Things’. I wasn’t interested. One of the safe aspects to listening to retro music is that the musicians are either dead, happily married or post-rehab.

“I used to think Fleetwood Mac was something you bought at Thorpe Park when it was raining” There’s no nasty fear that my favourite singer will be found in a ditch, reeking of Corona and insisting that his clothes have been stolen. Eventually, one friend persuaded me to get Spotify and sent me a playlist of some of his favourite songs. I was forced to face the inevitable – musical talent didn’t die after Wham split up. Best of all, my friend is cool enough to have mainly sent me brilliant obscure music that nobody else has heard of, so I appear ridiculously cool and down with the kids. There is one reason why I will always be an oldie at heart. To be a true modern music fan requires going to gigs where you have to try to avoid the mosh pit and stand around as there is never enough room for chairs (so I’ve read). As utterly delightful as that sounds, and as much as I am enjoying listening to musicians that aren’t insured with Saga, I do like a nice sit down.

days of headlines with Phil Mills

Sussex workers in BA strikes, Brighton woman wins gold medal in fat carving, and Albion scheme acclaimed t never ceases to amaze me just how much talent there is in Brighton and Hove.Take Naoko Sukegawa, for instance. She has lived in the city for 14 years and and works as a pastry chef. Nothing particularly special you might say – until you see the Oriental dragon she created from pastry margarine for Hotelympia catering show, the UK catering industry’s biggest exhibition, held in London. Chefs from around the country competed and Naoko, a first-time entrant, collected a gold medal and best-in-category. She spent four months creating the 74cm-high sculpture in the hallway and garage of her home in Buckingham Road. Naoko, 31, a black belt kickboxer, started her catering career in a sandwich shop before taking a catering course. Not such happy news at Gatwick Airport, where the BA strike brought pickets for the first time in years. Many flight crews live in Sussex and one cabin worker contacted Latest 7 to apologise: “We didn’t want to take this action but we were being bullied by the management. There was no other way.” Talking of high-flyers, Brighton and Hove Albion have climbed out of the relegation zone with impressive wins at the same time as collecting the best community project title from the Football League. Its Making a Difference scheme was one of the first of its kind in the country to give disabled children and adults a chance to

play football. The board, staff and players can all take credit. It was a shame, then, to see an Albion fan banned from the new Falmer ground even before it is opened – the 21 year old has been ordered to stay away from the club for five years because of his bad behaviour. The bad behaviour of dog owners also made headlines with a new get-tough approach by the city council. Patrols by the council’s welfare officers have been stepped up to catch owners who fail to clean up after their pets. Fines of £80 have been dished out along the seafront and patrols are now focusing on the Queens

Brighton and Hove City Council leader Mary Mears on Easter holiday activities his week is the start of the Easter school holidays and I know that for many families this can mean frantically looking for things to keep their children occupied for two weeks! I hope that some of the following events and activities will give you some inspiration. In terms of the more traditional Brighton and Hove attractions, both Preston Manor and the Volks Railway will be opening again for the summer season and the Royal Pavilion is as stunning as ever. It’s amazing how many local residents I meet who have never experienced

Park, Hangleton Park, Palmeira Square and Knowle Estate areas. And there’s another crackdown in the city – trading standards and police are issuing warning stickers to residents to put on letter boxes to deter unwanted doorstep callers. Crime Reduction Officer Paul Knight said: “They will reinforce the message to rogue sales people that they are not welcome in Brighton and Hove, while at the same time showing support to those people who may find it difficult to persuade a persistent and overbearing caller to leave their property.” There was some welcome news on the business front: Brighton has won another big conference, expected to earn the local economy around £1million. The European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy will bring 600 delegates to the Brighton Centre in October 2011. It is the fifth major professionals’ conference the council has won this year – with others including events for accountants, psychiatrists and various branches of medicine. There’s an unusual conference in the city on Wednesday (March 31) aimed at people who work with children and want to get more of them singing. ‘Singing City’ at the Brighton Dome brings together a range of nationally recognised music leaders to run workshops with practical tips on making singing accessible and getting young people excited about it. And there was more positive news on the cultural and entertainment front when council planners approved the council’s plan to stage artistic and cultural events in the empty former wholesale fruit and veg’ market in Circus Street. Another venue to show off the city’s ever growing supply of talent.

latest inbox comment@thelatest.co.uk Dear Latest 7, preparations are underway for the annual Artwave Open House Festival, taking place across the Lewes District from Saturday 28 August until Sunday 12 September. We’re looking for individuals and groups willing to open a studio, living room, lobby, garage, garden, greenhouse and pretty much any other accessible space, within the Lewes District area and suitable for visitors to experience engaging pieces of art! The entry forms are now available (the closing date is 12 April) either on our website or by emailing. Thanks in anticipation, Serena Costello, artwave@lewes.gov.uk, www.artwavefestival.org People are being misled by Mephedrone’s legal status. From what I’ve seen on the news, they’re saying it gives similar effects and is similar in chemical structure to cocaine and ecstasy. However, its chemical structure is more similar to the far more dangerous drug, crystal meth than any of these drugs. If people assume that what they are taking is going to be safer because it’s legal, this could mean that those who would never choose to experiment with these drugs would take Mephedrone because of its legality. Mephedrone has had users report of the urge to redose and take excessive amounts, some users report taking as much as five grams a day. It has been known to cause heart palpitations and chest pain, suggesting it could be more cardiotoxic than originally thought. One thing’s for sure, I’m never taking it again.

And on the subject of nature, the new Wild Planet exhibition on the seafront is well worth a look – there are some absolutely stunning and inspiring photos on display. As ever, the city’s great strength is its variety – it may be a cliché but there really is something for everyone. Whatever you do I hope you enjoy the break and have a safe and relaxing time.

You probably will have seen all the posters plastered round Brighton for this year’s show, as new event organisers Media 10 have really upped the ante after taking over from previous owners the Daily Mail. A brand new line-up of faces are hosting this year’s show, including interior designer Linda Barker, BBC Gardener Monty Don, ex-GMTV presenter Fiona Philips, Masterchef judge Gregg Wallace, and of course our very own Suzi, who was the face of the Ideal Home Gadget House. But the highlight for Suzi (see our other exclusive pic) was supporting the troops as part of the Ideal Homes For Heroes Appeal, with 50p for every ticket sold being directly to the appeal. The show is on until 5 April – for more info visit www.idealhomeshow.co.uk

ONLY JOKING!

Bare cheek Brian Mitchell & Joseph Nixon’s thoroughly scurrilous Brighton column

Who you gonna call? Local ghost hunter Richard Fraude reveals all or the last twenty years paranormal expert and ‘ghost hunter’ Richard Fraude has been investigating spooky goings on in Brighton and Hove. “I’ve been interested in the strange world of the uncanny since I was a young lad growing up in Rottingdean,” says Fraude, 44. “I vividly remember the first ghost I ever saw. I was eight years old and had come home from school early one day because the pipes had burst. “My father was away on business at the time, so I was very surprised when a man walked down the stairs, buttoning up his flies. The stranger reached the bottom looked

F

at me, blanched, and bolted out the front door. I ran upstairs and questioned my mother, who was in bed, but she swore no one had been in the house all day. I am convinced the figure I saw was an unhappy spirit – perhaps someone killed in the Second World War, or a knight who perished in the crusades – although the fact that he was wearing a pork pie hat would seem to make the latter theory unlikely. “Brighton is particularly rich pickings for a ghost hunter. Of all the places in Britain I’ve investigated, only Dronfield in Derbyshire has more spectres per square mile.”

RICHARD’S TOP FIVE HAUNTED BRIGHTON SPOTS

NEWS IN BRIEF

ST. NICHOLAS’ CHURCH This Dyke Road church is haunted by the spirit of Sir Oliver Delagardie, a nobleman who conspired to depose King Edward II, and was beheaded in 1362. He can be seen wandering through the vestry, eternally looking for his keys.

• Supreme Being: “Pimp my ride!”

KOMEDIA THEATRE Haunted by Chris Hipgrave, a comedian who committed suicide in his dressing room in 1998 after a particularly unsatisfying gig. On nights when there’s a full moon, he performs, again and again, the set that led to his untimely death. Unfortunately, they’ve changed the position of the stage since then, so all you can see is his arse and part of his back protruding from the wall. CO-OP STORE, LONDON ROAD Haunted by Ian Pilbrow, another ghost hunter, who I actually knew quite well, and worked with on a number of occasions. He had a heart attack at the super store (which has since closed down) in 1989 while investigating the possibility that it might be haunted by Winston Churchill. Oddly enough, though now a ghost himself, he still operates as a ghost hunter. THAT CORDONED-OFF SECTION ACROSS FROM THE WEST PIER THAT HAS A ROTTING OLD CARAVAN IN IT Haunted by the spectre of Aubrey Beardsley’s mum, doomed to forever walk a triangle between there, the ruins of the pier, and the nearby playground, wailing, weeping, and singing selections from Thoroughly Modern Millie. Spotting Mrs Beardsley tends to mean the spotter will shortly die, come into money, or be sexually humiliated by a Welsh person. SEA LIFE CENTRE Haunted by the ghost of actor F Murray Abraham who, oddly enough, is still alive. Weird eh?

Ariens – eggs or bunnies? Definitely eggs for Aries, hard shelled but with a soft interior. But beware, that soft interior can easily go off and cause a right old stink. Taureans – eggs or bunnies? Bunnies for Taurus but slightly aggressive ones with pronounced canines and a taste for flesh. In this case, chocolate simply will not do.

Geminis – eggs or bunnies? Oh, definitely eggs, shared ones, twins from one egg rather than two is the order of the day. Avoid bunnies at all costs, two together can cause havoc.

Cancerians – eggs or bunnies? Eggs all the way for our crabby little friends. Again, that brittle shell is the key but once inside things can be pretty tasty.

Leo – eggs or bunnies? Bunnies, simply for the fun of seeing big beastly Leo deal with fluffy ickle wabbitkins. Lord, where did that come form, I must be going soft. Virgos – eggs or bunnies? Eggs of course, definitely chocolate and with no indication that they might be in any way connected to the reproductive process.

Librans – eggs or bunnies? Eggs and bunnies here in equal measure. Librans are capable of taking both in their stride so be confident, go mad, perhaps a bunny astride an egg? Scorpio – eggs or bunnies? Eggs without any shadow of a doubt. Scorpio is likely to toy cruelly with a bunny and that is not a pretty sight or one to be encouraged. Sagis – eggs or bunnies? Eggs for sure, but for safety’s sake pasteurised or powderered. If you must do bunnies then do them as a hot water bottle cover.

Capricorn – eggs or bunnies? Take no risk with dangerous Capricorns and give neither eggs nor bunnies. Send a message instead that you have sent chickens to a poor third world village.

Aquarians – eggs or bunnies? Give ’em bunnies and they will try to breed them, give them eggs and they will try to hatch them. It’s a lose lose situation with loved up Aquarius. Pisces – eggs or bunnies? Well the easy answer is soft roes, herrings are best right now and Bardsley’s as yet do not serve Sevruga or Beluga caviar. They do serve champagne though.

L7 INTERVIEW 11

“DEBBIE REYNOLDS: IS SHE STILL HERE?!” As she returns to the UK after 36 years, Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds chats to Bella Todd

You seem as exuberant at 78 as you were at 18 I think energy is really a part of your personality, you have it or you don’t have it. I was just reading a book... now where is it, I wrote it on the back of a Kleenex box. Here: ‘Energy and electricity: to be a star you have to have it’. That’s Katharine Hepburn. People say, ‘Debbie Reynolds: is she still here?!’ They say, ‘look at Debbie, she’s so lifelike!’ I’m like George Burns, I’m never going to retire until I drop dead. And then I’m going to have myself stuffed like Trigger. Roy Rogers was the biggest Western star in America, and Trigger was his horse. They had him stuffed when he died and kept him in the house for years. You’re right dear, I’m 5ft one – I wouldn’t take a lot of stuffing! Was Singing In The Rain as much fun to make as it still is to watch? Oh no, it was exhausting and I was a wreck! I was only 18 and to keep up with Gene [Kelly] and Donald [O’Connor] I had to be whipped into shape. The routines were beaten into me! Years later Gene came to see me on Broadway and said, ‘Well Debbie, you’re really great, you’ve got it!’ 25 years later he thought I’d got it right! He was a task master. My feet would bleed and he’d just say to keep shooting, from six in the morning ‘til 11 at night. It taught me a very strong work ethic. All I know is to work very hard. It’s frightening the control the studios had over you in those days: MGM changed your name from Mary to Debbie and even arranged your dates... Oh yes, they always changed your name if it was un-commercial or unmemorable. Streisand would be changed today, and Renee Schwarzenegger. [Zellweger?] Yes! Renee Zellweger! The dates were set up for publicity. But we got to meet a lot of attractive boys that way. And we always had chaperones and they’d send a car for us. So I didn’t mind it at all. For someone to pay you a salary and to take care of you was a very wonderful arrangement I thought. It was a burden on Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland though. They put them in every movie and really overworked them. MGM had two doctors, Dr Jones and the one we called Dr Needles. I never took the injections. They called them vitamin shots, to keep the actors going because everyone was working so hard, but I think they were speed. Your reputation was always terribly wholesome I am that and I was that. I was a party girl, I loved to go to parties and I still do, and when I discovered wine I liked it very much, but I was never a drunk and I was lucky not to fall into an addiction. I was so busy learning, like an athlete, and you can’t party too much and be a really good dancer, you can’t fall apart. You have the world’s biggest Hollywood memorabilia collection – what’s your latest acquisition? I bought recently the black and white Audrey Hepburn Ascot dress from My Fair Lady, when she says ‘move your blooming arse!’ And I had the Rex Harrison suit. And I’m trying to buy Johnny Depp’s pirate outfit. It’s hard to get hold of the different pieces of that one. It all started because MGM was having an auction, and I just thought it should all be saved and kept as a collection. I have the ruby red slippers from The Wizard Of Oz and Marilyn Monroe’s subway dress... I’m still trying to find a museum for it and I will keep trying. I’m a movie buff!

A question for the fan in you, then – who’s the starriest star you’ve known? I was star struck with everybody! I was great friends with Judy Garland. I remember her sitting in her home, singing to her records; we would visit for hours and hours and hours, just sing and dance around the room and act silly! Frank Sinatra I would visit in Las Vegas, and we would tell stories and horse around on the stage. It was really joyful. That’s the fun thing about show people – most of them were a little crazy. Marilyn [Monroe] was a very dear girl, very sweet, very vulnerable. She fell in love with two famous brothers, and then she threatened to reveal these affairs, and that ended her life. Oh yeah, she was murdered. I don’t think the men fell in love with Marilyn, they just wanted to go to bed with her, use her. I think Joe DiMaggio loved her but when they were married he used her as a maid. How often do you get to sit round the kitchen table with your daughter, Carrie Fisher? I just went up on Sunday – I live right below my

“Singing In The Rain was exhausting! My feet would bleed and Gene Kelly would just say to keep shooting”

daughter – and I got to hug my granddaughter. She’s 17. She looks more like me than Carrie, and ‘cos I’m in show business I must say she has a lot of genetic talent. Carrie always writes about me – I’m her source of material! My mother was very strong and bossy and powerful, but loving, and so am I. But daughters don’t want to hear it! They have to learn it for themselves, I guess; but it seems like such a waste of time. Carrie wrote These Old Broads for, and about, you and Elizabeth Taylor. There’s quite a history there... Oh, well we went to school together on the MGM lot. She was a big star but still young – everybody had to go to school three hours a day, it didn’t matter if you were a star or not. And then when I married Eddie Fisher her husband was Mike Todd, and the four of us became friends – and came to London as a matter of fact, to Ascott. You could wear fur then, there was no problem about furs. We looked both of us pretty nifty! The way I found out about the affair, I called Eddie and heard Elizabeth in the background: ‘Who is that darling?’ So I said, ‘Eddie, roll over, I want to talk to Elizabeth’. And then he came home and told me he loved Elizabeth and he didn’t love me anymore and he wants out. I say, ‘Well there’s the door – but I’m not giving you a divorce’. But then the press were pressuring me: ‘Let them be together, this wonderful couple’; never mind my children. Finally I caved in after two years. I said go ahead. I said, ‘She’ll throw you out in a year and a half’. And she did. She met Richard Burton. They both got their just-dos, and I didn’t do anything bad back. But that’s long ago and far away. We talk once or twice a week now. We don’t visit daily because she’s not really well and I don’t really... we’re not lunch girls. But we talk. Carrie has been tweeting about your ex-husband Eddie Fisher’s mental health today [‘Eddie Fisher thinks he is locked in a bakery and needs to attend a charity fundraiser that he has organised with President Barack Obama and a famous baseball player’]. How is he? Carrie calls it mental health, I call it old age. He’s entering into the last phases of his life. Well, everyone’s dying you know. We’ve just lost Katherine Grayson and Jean Simmons. But that is inevitable. That is the way the world goes round. And that will happen to me too. But Eddie led a very sedentary life. He didn’t keep working. You have to keep working and keep interested, keep your mind busy in order to not fall apart. I’m on the road 42 weeks a year, and I’ve raised five children, three step children and Carrie and Todd. When musicals went out, Gene Kelly got very unhappy and had a stroke. People who stay busy seem to live longer. What films do you most enjoy watching now? I love Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and all the dancing. And I enjoy very much the love stories. But you’ve sworn off real life romance? Oh, well because I marry such awful men! So I just decided I shouldn’t do that anymore. I make too many mistakes and I haven’t got time to make another one. My second husband lost all of his money and all of my money, which was over $50 million. So I slept in my cheap old car a year and a half, ‘til I could save up enough money for a little house. I had too much pride to ask my friends to help. They never knew, until later when I wrote a book. It took me ten years to dig out. My career doesn’t steal all my money and leave me sleeping in the car with my children to support! My career is not fickle. I’m alone but I’m not lonely. I’m quite content. Good, because you really deserve to be happy! Thank you. I think you’re right!

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK 15

Food & Drink Andrew Kay pretends to get healthy with a breakfast at old favourite, Bill’s

Bill’s thrills ill’s is an institution; a place of pilgrimage and a huge business success. The word is that it is about to go global – well, national at least – and good luck to them. I popped in for breakfast, my favourite time to visit, and the lovely waiter happily informed me that sites have already been secured in Horsham – which will open in a few months time – and also in Reading. Who would have thought that such success could be sparked by that terrible Lewes flood? Bill’s in Lewes has to be my favourite. It was the first and attracts a fantastic crowd of very mixed clients. If ever I I am over there I invent a reason to pop in, even if it is just to do a spot of light shopping. Of course, by light I mean luxurious, as I can seldom resist the goods on offer. I had a job as a teenager in the local greengrocers and, as good as it was back then, it was never like this: such variety, so many delicious choices and great old fashioned deli goods, bottled fruits, exquisite conserves. It comes pretty close as a shopping experience to my favourite, which is the food hall at Fortnum & Mason in London’s Piccadilly.

B

I ask the waiter if she can make sure that there is no devil food, by which I mean pineapple, and she assures me that this is no problem. Pretty soon I have a massive soup plate of freshly made fruit salad with no trace of pineapple being there or having ever been there. How good of them to accommodate my faddy request. Lesser joints might simply have attempted to pick it out, but this tasted for all the world like it had been made to order. The yoghurt, too, was good, thick and creamy in the Greek style and, in hindsight, perhaps not as healthy as I would have liked it to be, but what the heck. As for pumpkin seeds, I love them, but you do need to chew. I recently read that no amount of seeds of any kind will have any healthy benefits unless you give them a good chew, and chewing we are not doing. I chewed away in the hope that the efficacy would be increased. I did, however, spoil the healthiness of the whole by downing two piping hot lattes, both of which came with a small temptation in the form of a cube of chocolate brownie. Delicious but very naughty – you need to be so careful or you can find yourself taking away cakes simply by suggestion. Friends may tell you that I complain about Bill’s. I do. But it’s not the place I dislike, but the fact that it is so successful that at lunchtime it has become hard to find a seat and to negotiate the number of buggies that are there. The food, however, is always good, always fresh and always tasty. It’s a real temptation, one that I can confirm as I see a chef placing two glorious looking cakes in the cabinet, one decorated with strawberries and bay leaves, and the other with daffodils and sprigs of rosemary. All is left for me is to pay the bill: £8.60 for a huge fruit salad and two excellent coffees. Bill’s, 56 Cliffe High Street, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2AN, 01273 476918 Bill’s, The Depot, 100 North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YE, 01273 692894 brightonfoodawards.com www.billsproducestore.co.uk

“Bill’s comes pretty close as a shopping experience to my favourite, which is the food hall at Fortnum & Mason” Not long ago I was in Lewes and felt the draw. Before I knew it I was tucking into a rarebit of quality, properly made and packing a hefty punch, and all grilled on really good bread. Rarebit is a fabulous dish, but too often is badly represented by lazy establishments who think that to toast a slice of cheese is enough. It is not. Mr R, with me on that occasion, had the appetite for a full English. It’s a monster of a meal at Bill’s and built of extremely high quality parts. Too much for my delicate constitution that day, but I have been known to do more than justice to its magnificence. My second favourite meal at Bill’s is the steak sandwich, a very good lunch for those of us with a hearty appetite and, given the quality of the ingredients, not overly expensive. It’s not always on the menu; I know that because as I type this in I’m in the Brighton branch and can see that it is missing. There are plenty of other tempting choices though: risottos, quiches and the like. Oh I know, quiche can be so wet, but I can vouch for Bill’s quiches, as I also can for the well-made cakes that are so terribly tempting. I am, however, having the most healthy of breakfasts today; well, fairly healthy. I have chosen a bowl of fruit salad with yoghurt and pumpkin seeds.

DRINK UP The bottles of water that just didn’t cut it during those cold winter months(a hot chocolate was the only way to go) are now easier to handle. The weather’s – a touch – milder, the evening’s lighter, meaning we feel happier, have more energy, and find the clear stuff easier to guzzle down. But what about other natural drinks out, providing energy as well as great taste? The month of March has seen Clipper Teas and Firefly Natural Tonics become firm favourites here at Latest Towers. The recently re-branded range of Firefly Natural Tonics are natural energy drinks, started up by two school friends in 2003. The bottles are bright and eyecatching; the drinks are refreshing and delicious. What’s more, you can choose the one to suit your mood such as ‘Wake Up’ (green tea and peach), De-tox (lemon, lime and ginger)

and Sharpen Up (grapefruit and passion fruit). Firefly drinks are served up in a stylish glass bottle that adds a touch of glam to your beverage break and is easily recycled too. For your tea break, the organic and Fairtrade Clipper hot drinks are a firm favourite since first hitting the market 25 years ago. Indulge in refreshing pure green tea – the first green tea to hit supermarket shelves here in the UK was Clippers’; or try something different with the orange and coconut from their infusion range. Also, check out their new ‘Alice’ blend, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s popular story. Tea suddenly got a lot more interesting than “milk and sugar?” Firefly Natural Tonics are available from leading supermarkets and www.clipper-teas.com Firefly Natural Tonics are available from Holland & Barrett and Waitrose.

BY GUM Chewing gum just got better – both for you and the environment – at Planet Organic. The Peppersmith English Natural Chewing Gum (£1.49) contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. It’s made with peppermint from a small farm in Hampshire, and sustainable sourced natural chicle from South America.

Refreshing and full of flavour, Peppersmith’s is also accredited by the Dental Health Foundation as it helps prevent cavities too. Planet Organic also stock the GoGo Guaranza Buzz Gum (£1.19), a natural energiser that improves concentration and energy levels; and Chicza Organic Mayan Rainforest Chewing Gum (£1.49), the first rainforest-produced, 100 per cent biodegradable gum. Chew with pride. Available from Planet Organic stores and www.planetorganic.com

MUSICAL INSPIRATION Already Here is the newly released debut album by Anna Taylor and US music producer Robert Berry. The album, whose sound has been likened to Sarah McLachlan, has a wonderful back story of production. Anna, who has Cerebral Palsy, had ongoing health issues during her teens, which made it difficult for her to sing. It was when she was introduced to sound and song therapy that her love for singing was rediscovered. Anna sees music as a universal language, and knows firsthand the incredible healing effects it can have, on the mind, body and spirit. To raise money to record her album, Anna created a ‘Wall of Love’ – 111 hearts that were each sponsored for $111 each. These hearts, filled with the initials of her supporters, feature on her website and CD booklet. Already Here came to life, being deeply personal, reflective and full of hope. www.annataylormusic.com

HEY, DIMPLES

Unwanted cellulite? Latest 7 puts the best lotions for shifting orange peel to the test

ESTEE LAUDER BODY PERFORMANCE SLIM SHAPE ADVANCED VISIBLE CONTOURING SYSTEM £30.50 available from Boots, Debenhams and wave www.esteelauder.co.uk This is easily applied without the need to massage into the skin, drying quickly and leaving no greasy or sticky residue. It has a minty smell,which goes as soon as it’s dry, leaving the skin with a cool, tingling sensation. My skin feels smoother and I can see an improvement in its appearance. The only downside is you can't see how much product is left in the bottle.

ELEMIS CELLUTOX ACTIVE BODY CONCENTRATE £30 available from www.timetospa.co.uk I have only ever tried the wave Elemes facial products before this. I love their fragrance and texture,and this is very similar. It feels quite greasy but does absorb evenly. I don't feel there has been a reduction on the cellulite areas, but my skin feels a lot smoother and radiant. I would recommend this product as more of a massage oil; you only need a small amount, so it’s good value for money, and comes in an elegant bottle.

DOVE SPA DE-DIMPLE INTENSIVE CELLULITE MINIMISER £49 available from www.dovespa.co.uk A two-week treatment, perfect for pre-holiday. You don’t need to worry if you’re using too little or too much as there are 14 small bottles. This also means you won’t skip a day with being ‘too tired’ as an excuse. Teamed with the effort of drinking more water, skin definitely had a healthier glow and smoothness both to look at and to the touch.

PAUL PENDERS BODY FIRMING CELLULITE SERUM £32.25 available from www.thenaturalskincare company.com A gorgeous rich lotion from the Malaysian rainforest, with herb and cocoa bean shell extract. This had a lovely scent – light and herbal with a hint of sweetness.The pleasant green lotion felt lovely and smooth when massaged onto the skin, leaving it immediately softer and smooth.

The whole area felt toned and I have high hopes of good longterm results. LAIDBARE NATUROCEUTICALS ‘BUTTER ME UP’ ORGANIC SHEA BODY BUTTER £15, available from www.touchmyface.co.uk With no complicated instructions it was just left to me to slather this waxy luxury on. Feeling substantial to grab, it didn't run and needed working in a bit. The benefits of the shea butter combined with the

massage left my skin feeling soft, smoother, and smelling lush. Shift the orange peel:anti-cellulite products are just the start in treating/preventing cellulite. Along with daily product use: • Drink plenty of water • Eat a low-sugar diet • Cut down on alcohol and cigarettes • Exercise regularly • Use a body brush and exfoliate follow me on twitter

Dear Jacquie Your health queries answered with Jacquie Lane from the College of Naturopathic Medicine “I’m 50 years old and facing the dreaded menopause. Is HRT the only solution to the problems that may follow?” SB, Brighton Marina Please see the start of the menopause as the beginning of freedom! This is how it is viewed in many other countries. Natural therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine and homeopathy

can be enormously helpful in treating menopausal problems. However, since dietary and lifestyle changes can have such a huge impact on the classic menopause symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats and low moods, I suggest that you start by making some everyday changes to help yourself. An area to pay particular attention to is your bone health to help prevent osteoporosis. Oestrogen is very protective of bone health and declining levels during and after the menopause can cause the classic symptoms mentioned above. You can help protect your bones by having a good selection of naturally occurring calcium and vitamin D foods. Good levels of calcium are found in broccoli and green leafy vegetables, sesame seeds, almonds, dairy foods, and tinned salmon with the bones mashed in. Vitamin D is plentiful in oily fish, eggs and dairy products. And don’t forget to get natural daylight every day, even when the sun is absent

from Brighton! Vitamin K, boron, zinc, and magnesium are also essential for keeping bones strong. Reducing fizzy drinks, saturated fats, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and salt would be helpful for bone health, heart health, and to prevent or reduce hot flashes. A group of foods called phytoestrogens are useful for helping the body replace some of its naturally lost oestrogen levels. Foods containing these include soya, flax seeds, oats, chick peas, lentils, sage and red clover. Weight-bearing exercise is also very protective of bones. Combine this with some regular walking/cardiovascular exercise for heart health. Adequate soluble fibre, found in fruit and vegetables, and clear fluids are required for good bowel health, and essential fatty acids found in flax seeds and oily fish are good for joints and heart health. Our moods can also fall at this time and many women find relief with St. John’s Wort. However, as with all medicinal herbs, a health history case-taking consultation would be required to ensure that the herb would be safe and useful for you. If you have a general health query that you would like to raise here you can email Jacquie at healthqueriesforWave@naturopathyuk.com. Please note that Jacquie cannot enter into individual correspondence unless your query is chosen for publication.

Jacquie Lane is a lecturer at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) and the Director of Studies at CNM in Brighton. Jacquie also runs her own nutrition clinic in Brighton and manages a biological testing lab specialising in digestive issues.

> Tuesday 30 March to 5 April > But Icarus gets carried away and flies too close to the sun, which melts the wax. Falling from the sky into the sea, he drowns. Using individual stories relating to Icarus’ parable, the company are promising an emotional journey using strong visual and physical imagery. In the intimate space of of the studio, audiences will be invited to make their own path and explore these different stories and perspectives, eventually becoming a part of the journey. Saskia Ulrike Schilling says: “In this brief story I not only see my life reflected, but I want to look at the emotional voyage of Icarus and give him a voice.

New Venture Theatre are taking Ovid’s Icarus on a new journey, writes Andrew Kay ith a Brighton Festival programme boasting perhaps the best showing of theatre for many years, it is heartening to see that Brighton’s strong independent theatre scene will be putting on an equally strong programme. The excellent New Venture Theatre this year presents its production of Icarus. Devised and directed by Saskia Ulrike Schilling, the perfomance has been inspired by

W

Ovid’s poem but also draws on personal experience. The myth of Icarus, his flight and his subsequent fall, is explored by three performers within a promenade setting. Imprisoned in the labyrinth of the Minotaur with his son, the inventor Daedalus crafts wings from feathers and wax in order to escape. Daedalus warns Icarus, his son, to follow his route and not get too close to the sea or the sun.

THE TRUDY + PUSSYCAT AND THE DIRTY JOHNSONS

MUSIC 23

With Jeff Hemmings

The long-running femme pop’n’soul Da Doo Ron Ron club night are launching a live music night, kicking off with new wave pop combo The Trudy. Maximising guitar crunch with melodies, they feature ex-Cardiacs Richard Targett. Meanwhile, Basingstoke’s Pussycat & The Dirty Johnsons are a scuzzy ’n’ fuzzy punk, rockabilly and blues explosion, fronted by the somewhat extroverted and leather catsuit-clad Pussycat. Ooh-err. Saturday 3 April, Hope

SON OF DAVE Canada’s SOD is one Benjamin Darvill, a oneman band who has become something of a cult figure here in the UK. Blowing a hot electric harp whilst keeping time with a digital looping delay unit, the legendary Steve Albini recorded and mixed his latest album Shake A Bone. A musical chameleon with plenty of meaty hooks to get your teeth into. Wednesday 31 March, Hector’s House

Dir: Susanna White

She’s ba-ack! Warts and all, as the less alluring Mary Poppins turns up to help out harangued young mother, Maggie Gyllenhaal, who’s struggling with her own kids and a pair of city cousin evacuees. Hubby’s at war and it’s all a tad too much on her own. Cue the magic and lessons learned, followed by a race to save the farm. Emma Thompson reprises the title role. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon

Showing this week Kick-Ass (15) Dir: Matthew Vaughn

Ever wondered why comic heroes don’t help in everyday life? If so, you’re in good company as teen nerd Dave (Aaron Johnson) – invisible to girls – straps on his homemade outfit and weapons and strikes out to help the helpless, inspiring all manner of vigilantes and do-gooders (including Nic Cage). The local crime boss is a tad put out, though. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon & Duke of York’s Picturehouse

How To Train Your Dragon 2D & 3D (PG) Dir: Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders

Animated vikings eh? Marauding and fighting anything that’s big enough to hit. That’s what teenager Hiccup has to look forward to, until he befriends an injured dragon and turns expectations on their head. From the studio that brought us Shrek and Madagascar. Showing at Odeon, Cineworld and Worthing

The Blind Side (12A) Dir: John Lee Hancock The feel-good drama that earned

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (18) Dir: Niels Arden Oplev

Clash Of The Titans 3D & 2D (12A) Dir: Louis Leterrier

Putting aside the ridiculous tagline (Titans. Will Clash.), this is one of the most hotly anticipated tickets of the year, telling an epic story with phenomenal effects. Rather fitting, then, that our hero Perseus should be played by Sam Worthington, last seen as hi-tech whiz film Avatar’s leading man. Perseus is born a god but raised a man and, rather unfortunately for him, bears the wrath of Hades, god of the underworld himself (Ralph Fiennes). Facing this, he gathers a group of his best men around him and journeys forth into the forbidden worlds to battle with demons and all manner of beasts – a bit mean of him, what with them being mortal and him not. And there lies the crux of the difficulty. He’s got to embrace his birthright and face his destiny. Big story. Big film. Can’t wait. (Oh, and Nicholas Hoult from Skins is in it too!) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon from Friday 2 April.

Sandra Bullock her Best Actress Oscar sees her take a traumatised and withdrawn teenager under her wing in

this based-on-a-true story flick. Bring a box of Kleenex. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon

Journalist Mikael decides to get a bit of distance from his work when he’s done for defamation, but ends up employed by Swedish industrialist tycoon Vagner to investigate the disappearance and murder of his 16-year-old niece. His research picks up several skeletons, and a lady with a remarkable talent for discovering the undiscoverable. Showing at Duke of York’s

Lourdes (U) Dir: Jessica Hausner

Winner of numerous awards at the 2009 Venice Film Festival, Hausner's latest release tells of wheelchair-bound Christine’s journey to the holy station and her relationship with stern head nun Cécile when she gets there. With plenty of self-discovery and faith, Hausner has not baulked at provoking reaction. Showing at Duke of York’s

FUNNIER FARM: 2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY his brilliant club has had its obstacles – being unexpectedly pushed out of its previous venue being just one. But as happens with most things that are hard work but seem effortless, Funnier Farm landed on its feet. With a lovingly programmed night, initially each month and more recently, fortnightly, you can be sure of a bang-up show with top notch acts tipped for the top, as well as your above average headliner. Previous names who’ve finished off a raucous night at this club include Richard Herring, Tom Wrigglesworth, Angelos Epithemiou, Rob Heeney, Danielle Ward, Josie Long, Robin Ince and Mark Steele. In fact, with the Funnier Farm programmer’s eye for quality, quite a few who aren’t headlining are playing top clubs around the country and breaking through onto the main circuit. This is where the ones to watch go to get booked. So, to mark two years of fun and laughter and hilarious comedy, Funnier Farm is having a brilliant line-up of comics with added party atmosphere. Headlining is the fantastic character Brian Gittins, whose sold-out show in Edinburgh last year made quite a splash –

T

so much so that he ended up supporting Ricky Gervais for part of his 2009 tour. As a Pycombe roadside café owner who the regulars have called ‘quite funny’, Gittins has been a pioneer of the popular ‘anti-comedy’ genre. The supporting cast for the evening includes Krater regular Paul McCaffrey, who won the London Paper comic of the year in 2008, as well as Dan Mitchell (see him in mate Rhod Gilbert’s DVD amongst the special features), and some others who’ll more than surprise you. It’s so good of the folks at Funnier Farm to share this tasty birthday treat with us all. Wednesday 31 March, 8pm, Caroline of Brunswick, £5 follow me on twitter

AUTECHRE

The Editors entered the stage on fine form, blasting into the title track from new album In The Light Of The Evening. The deep, dark voice of frontman and songwriter Tom Smith took us back to the days when Cabaret Voltaire ruled the airwaves, and the stage looked like a musical battlefield, littered with strange looking noise-making machines: electronica meets the darkside in an industrial machine. Mid-set the band were fully entwined in a Throbbing Gristle/Joy Division heavyweight scrap. Then the calm, as the beautifully haunting ‘Weight Of The World’, a sit-down piano tune for the masses, brought an atmosphere of solice. The Editors know how to do it, and did it with ease. Dome Concert Hall, 20 March ✪✪✪✪✪ Andy Forward

This was a long, strenuous evening, night and early morning of lead-heavy, rib-fracturing beats, bleeps and industrial cacophony – an aural soundscape fashioned by Bosch. When Autechre finally appeared, letting in some welcome light and air, they demonstrated how effective a little imagination, thought and creativity can be when harnessed to musical technology, ridding it of the sterility present in much of what had gone before. The mixed crowd seemed pleased they’d braved the sudden chilly drizzle. They certainly got an awful lot of sounds for their pounds. Corn Exchange, 18 March ✪✪✪✪✪ Gary Mepsted

MOJO FINS

RORY BREMNER

Saturday night at the movies: it’s possible that the late hour and bad weather may have kept some people away, but those who like popcorn with their pop were in for a rare treat. The surrounds of Brighton’s 100-year-old cinema provided the perfect setting for the launch of the ‘Fins latest single, ‘Meet Me At The Pictures’, while more familiar tracks also got an outing in re-jigged versions, which won over an appreciative crowd. Gorgeous support, too, from The Half Sisters, which attracted some geek-sexy dancing in the aisles. All in all: good looks, good sounds. Duke of York’s Picturehouse, 19 March ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Allen

The Old Market 23 March ✪✪✪✪✪

THE TIGER LILLIES The Tiger Lillies have built up a fantastic following over the years for their Brechtian punk cabaret, and the Komedia venue presented a truly atmospheric backdrop as the trio relived their Shockheaded Peter songs, and other ‘gory’ verses they've come up with over the last 20 years. Having always been intrigued by the claim that their music is not for the faint-hearted, I was rather disappointed at how light-hearted the whole show was. Martyn Jacques' shrill, Terry Jones-meets-Antony Hegarty voice lends itself well to the largely funereal pace of the songs, but the tragi-comic asides were rather weak and suprisingly clumsy. Komedia, 20 March ✪✪✪✪✪ Jeff Hemmings

SMARTY PARTY CABARET WIFE AFTER DEATH Tom Conti led a great company in what might have been rather an old fashioned farce but turned out be a ripping comedy filled with clever twists. Eric Chappell, best known for TV sitcoms, has written a play filled with great jokes and heart-felt sentiments that thundered along with never a dull moment. The form may be a little dated but when handled this well by writer, director and cast, you leave the theatre aching from laughter. Conti was, as always, excellent, although his northern accent did slip into Scots from time to time. But the star of the evening was Diane Fletcher, whose world-weary delivery and dead-pan panache made for comic perfection. Theatre Royal, 17 March ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Kay

Cabaret nights are always a mixed bag, but Smarty Pants Productions have a knack for mixing in some sublimely stupid comedy alongside the ridiculously awkward interludes. Highlights included neat sketches from Melons a Trois, the endearingly scatty wit of Victoria Nangle and the ribald audience-bashing of Louise Conran. But it was the dumb-ashell chav-rap of Milky T that stole the show. Unnervingly convincing in his white tracksuit and cap, this crotch-clenching B-Boy from Hove managed to keep the audience rapt. The night finished with an unexpected but hugely entertaining double-bass and ragdoll-style tap-dance. Hanbury Ballroom, 18 March ✪✪✪✪✪ Ben Bailey

Did you see Rory Bremner at the Old Market? comment@thelatest.co.uk

here is much to despise and condemn about those whom we elect to govern us. Evidence of corruption, incompetence, venality and self-interest are exposed on a daily basis. Perhaps we do have cause to be grateful to our politicians, though, for the rich and fertile seam of comic material they unwittingly provide. Few comedians have mined that seam so assiduously or successfully as Rory Bremner, whose Election Battlebus Tour 2010 kicked off in Hove. The sold-out show, divided into stand-up followed by a Question Time-style debate, displayed the full range of Rory’s talents as both peerless impersonator and lethal satirist. The hilarious and pitch-perfect take-offs of the Labour and Tory old guard (Tony Blair, David Blunkett, William Hague, John Major et al) drew huge laughs and applause from the mostly middle-aged and middleclass audience. Rory’s five-year absence from the touring circuit might have produced the odd wobble or bum note, but his routine was as slick and sharp as you could wish. He rocketed through his repertoire with a confidence and class that was breath-taking. Non-political figures such as Les Dawson, Louis Walsh and Graham Norton where tossed casually into the mix. Ironically, Rory’s creaky, non-PC Les jokes got some of the biggest guffaws of the night.

T

The show’s second half brought Caroline Lucas (Green Party, Brighton Pavilion); Charlotte Vere (Tory Party, Brighton Pavilion); cartoonist, Steve Bell and surprise guest, Geoff Atkinson (Rory’s long-standing producer) to the stage. During the (over-long) interval the audience had the opportunity to jot down any questions they’d like answered. This part of the evening was less engaging and more scrappy than the earlier gleaming, machine-tooled stand-up. Predictably, the pair of politicians offered platitudes rather than answers (although Ms Lucas acquitted herself well and was a hit with the crowd). Steve Bell and Geoff Atkinson provided the bulk of the humour, aided and abetted by Rory in his role of Paxman-lite. During the final minutes of the show an elderly member of the audience, Alfie, raised the issue of the closing of the Special Needs School in Ovingdean. He spoke haltingly but passionately, and praised Rory Bremner for his Godgiven talent, which momentarily left Mr Bremner speechless and blushing (or perhaps that was a trick of the light). So, a brilliant and highly enjoyable evening. If you weren’t there, do try and catch Rory Bremner at another Battlebus venue. The show should heat up nicely as the election draws closer.

Beyond The Boundary Andy Winter surveys Sussex’s new squad

With Victoria Nangle

t seems as though it was just yesterday that we were slipping and sliding through the icy streets of Brighton but next week, with the arrival of spring, the cricket season begins. Supporters of Sussex County Cricket Club can look forward to another season of success in limited overs cricket. Last season saw Sussex established as the number one side in the country, retaining the Pr040 trophy, winning the Twenty20 Cup for the first time, and being finalists in the 50 over competition. The squad has been re-enforced, not least by the signing for the Twenty20 Cup of the Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan, of whom cricket website Cricinfo say, “with his relentless aggression, strong wrists and natural timing, Dilshan is one of the most exciting batsmen in the game today”.

Easter TV treats T

“Ed Joyce is likely to miss the first 10 weeks of the season through injury, but Sussex has quality in depth”

Are you looking forward to watching new signing Monty Panesar? comment@thelatest.co.uk

Pic: Clare Calder

Dilshan has pioneered a new cricket Ed Joyce stroke, the Dilscoop, a scoop shot over his head which is almost impossible to defend against without placing a fielder immediately behind the wicket keeper. The main disappointment last season was Sussex’s poor performance in the County Championship, which saw it relegated to the Second Division. But Sussex can expect to bounce back and an immediate return to the top flight is a reasonable expectation. The side is maturing well, a blend of youth and experience. After a relatively poor season last year, Murray Goodwin will once again be one of the leading run scorers in the Championship. Ed Joyce is likely to miss the first 10 weeks of the season through injury, but Sussex has quality in depth. Chris Nash will continue his development and should join team mates Matt Prior and Luke Wright in the plans of the England selectors. Certain to become an instant favourite with supporters is new signing Monty Panesar, the first Sikh to represent England. He is hoping that the change in counties will help to re-establish him in the national side, but Sussex supporters will hope that this will not happen before he has taken a huge haul of wickets at Hove. One area of concern is the retirement of Jason Lewry with no obvious successor emerging through the youth ranks. There are a number of young fast bowlers on the cusp of the first team, but the question of who will take the big step up remains uncertain. One possibility is new signing Craig Young, a 19-year-old Irishman recommended by Ed Joyce, who has the potential to make a big impact. So get down to the County Ground. Weather permitting, it should be a great season for Sussex and its supporters. And you can join in the new chant of “Monty Monty Monty Monty Pan-e-sar”.

he bonding force at Easter in our house was always television. After bounteous amounts of chocolate promises gave us a less than pure motive to do the rounds of the relatives, and I was trying to convince myself that the funny feeling in my tummy had nothing to do with the tasty feeling that had previously been in my mouth, my brother would hide away his goodies to taunt me with another day and we’d slam on the old tube. Viewing treats have always fallen into two camps, but generally there are so many treats on offer that remote control battles are kept to a minimum. Firstly, your one-off specials. Sometimes these cheat and split themselves in to two parts, but we know what they are. Obviously the cream of this lot is the much anticipated Doctor Who. New Doctor, new assistant, wrecked TARDIS, broken sonic screwdriver and 20 minutes to save... well, everyone! Classic Easter weekend family viewing, with much ‘shush!’ing of elders alternating with bounteous elevating of the volume. Pensioners want to know the finer details of alien infiltration too. Other gems from this catagory include the return of Jonathan Creek, ably assisted by Sheridan Smith (taking a break from being Legally Blonde in London’s West End), as well as the last (ever!) in the A Touch Of Frost series, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala... oh, and topically for Easter, a BBC1 show asking Are Christians Being Persecuted? Add to that the kick start of the new series of Ashes To Ashes on Friday and an entire evening of Extras on Monday and your original telly quota will have been met for the

month (and then some) in one fell Bank Holiday weekend. The second category of telly content that pops up over such extended periods of escape from work is movies. From Friday’s classic Sound Of Music to Saturday’s Pan’s Layrinth and Pearl Harbour, through to Sunday’s Eragon and Four Weddings And A Funeral and Monday’s The Greatest Story Ever Told, there’s one heck of a mixed bag. The new and the old, the classy and the trash. Some will be terrestrial premieres and others old favourites rolled out each year. Personally, I’m looking forward to a full tum and an afternoon of Howl’s Moving Castle on Saturday afternoon. Aside from being entertaining and underlining the indulgent slothfullness of the long weekend, these shows also provide a valuable function. Sometimes, when spending vast amounts of time with family, it’s best not to speak. Good to have periods of quiet comradeship. Just before my brother offers to trade me one of last year’s Easter eggs for the latest A-ha picture disc. Sometimes I’ve loved choclate too much.

tuesday 30 The Delicious Miss Dahl BBC2, 8.30pm Nigella Lawson has a lot to answer for. Cookery presenters on telly used to look like your mum and tell it to you straight. They wore pinnies and looked like they ate and loved the food they cooked. Tonight former model Sophie Dahl talks us through her perfect romantic dinner. Would she eat it all up?

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Five, 9pm Not topical at all this one. Nope. Pure coincidence. A former pro golfer’s head turns up on a golf course and the suspects include his angry ex-wife. No crystal ball in the mix here. There’s also a cross caddy and other suspects but we like to think inspiration came from the news a bit.

Caprica Sky 1, 9pm The prequel to cult remake Battlestar Galactica continues on apace, only a couple of days behind broadcast in its home planet of the US of A. The human/Cylon war hasn’t happened yet, but is this the story of the first Cylon? Maybe. Anyway, Daniel’s all ready to reset the Zoe-bot. Nooooooo!

wednesday 31 The Business Inspector Five, 8pm Buck up! If people said that more often then these shows would have far less advice to dole out. Self-made millionaire Hilary Devey adds authority to the words when she tackles the businesses of a pole-dancing fitness instructor and a dog lover. Other pearls may be: “It’s a business”, and “how much?!”

Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience BBC2, 10pm In which the comedian dosses the cap of a celebrity to the people who do some of the hardest jobs in the country. He’s already had a shot at bin men and mothers, now it’s the turn of the squaddie as Rhod joins the British Army on training exercises in the Brecon Beacons.

Gossip Girl ITV2, 9pm XO XO. So says Gossip Girl, and no one seems too bothered about who Gossip Girl is anymore. There are much more important things afoot. Like Eleanor’s fashion show that Blair’s been asked to ensure runs smoothly. Or Rufus’ further attempts at saving the brat from hell that is Jenny. Or Chuck’s eyebrows. Yup.

friday 02 Ashes To Ashes BBC1, 9pm It’s a new series and DI Alex Drake wakes up out of her coma! Woo hoo! In 1983. What?! Yup, it seems that when Gene Hunt shot her it just put her in a coma in the ‘80s and left him in the very brown stuff. Luckily she’s woken up though, and is back at work before too long on the case of a kidnapped girl.

Film: Flash Gordon ITV1, 1.30am The 1980 camp Queen-fest gets a late airing, but it’s Easter weekend so staying up late shouldn’t prove too disruptive. Former marine and Playgirl centrefold Sam J Jones stars as the prospective saviour of the Earth, Flash, having adventures with Brian Blessed’s birdman and Timothy Dalton’s prince. Such fun.

Frank Sinatra: Arena BBC4, 10pm The true lowdown on ol’ blue eyes from Arena. Interviews with friends, family and associates chart his rise to the top in both his musical and film career, his difficulties there, alleged relationship with the Mob, and of course his four marriages and friendship with the Kennedys. Not much of the quiet life here.
