Judging the X Factor must make you hungry: singer — and face of Muller yoghurt — Nicole Scherzinger finished filming the talent show on Saturday night and headed straight to Estiatorio Milos with her boyfriend, tennis player Grigor Dimitrov. The high-end Mediterranean restaurant on Regent Street specialises in fresh seafood and seemed to put a smile on her face ahead of Sunday's final.

Kelsey Grammer really seems to like Boisdale, the Scottish chain of steak restaurants. The star of Frasier is in town starring in Big Fish, and was at the Belgravia outpost in November. On Sunday night, he was at the Canary Wharf branch, where he dined on crab salad and beef wellington with Tom Parker Bowles at the Cigar Smoker of the Year Awards.

The Royal Albert Hall hosted the Fashion Awards on Monday night but dinner must have been underwhelming: model Jourdan Dunn and singer Sam Smith were among a crowd of guests to journey up to Marylebone after the ceremony to let their hair down at Chiltern Firehouse. Model Winnie Harlow, who was nominated for the Model of the Year prize, also joined them.

Lady Kitty Spencer and model Lottie Moss were at Ralph's on Tuesday night. The café, found in the Polo Ralph Lauren store in Mayfair, hosted a festive feast as the fashion brand threw a dinner party to toast the Christmas season. Actor Jamie Campbell Bower seemed to find the portion sizes a little paltry, though: a fellow guest filmed an Instagram story of him describing a plate of what appeared to be just a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Singer Pixie Lott was at Mews of Mayfair, the British brasserie on Lancashire Court, on Wednesday night. She came for a bite after attending Stella McCartney's tree-lighting ceremony on nearby Bruton Street.

American actress Kristin Davis was in Mayfair on Thursday night, spending the evening feasting at Hush. She played Charlotte York in Sex and the City so is used to sipping on Cosmopolitan cocktails, so must have felt right at home enjoying a drink in the Aviator bar. She was then seen heading into the brasserie for a bite. She also reportedly booked under the name Samantha Parker, natch.

The Ivy is known as the ultimate celebrity haunt, and it doesn't disappoint. Charles Spencer, historian and brother of the late Princess Diana, was seen having a spot of lunch there on Thursday afternoon. Minutes later, Only Fools and Horses legend David Jason walked in for a bite with some friends, and then Antiques Roadshow host Fiona Bruce wandered in too. Bit of an old-school crowd, but not bad for a 100-year-old restaurant.

Bella Hadid, model and social media sensation, is in London this week. She dined at China Tang on Thursday night, the art deco restaurant at The Dorchester. The experience presumably marked a stark change from the strict diet she and her fellow Angels were reportedly restricted to ahead of last month's Victoria's Secret show.
