Stanley Johnson — the 77-year-old author, campaigner and dad of Boris — had lunch at Boisdale of Belgravia on Monday with Georgia “Toff” Toffolo, the 23-year-old Made in Chelsea star.

The pair met on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, and have been seen on many a jaunt since, possibly the most surprising friendship ever to emerge from the jungle since Mowgli and Baloo.


MNKY HSE, the lively Latin American restaurant on Dover Street, hosted grime artist Stormzy and his girlfriend, TV presenter Maya Jama, on Monday night. They may have rushed home to catch the end of Love Island: Maya revealed that the pair love nothing more than to sit home watching the ITV romance show.


Spice Girl Mel B continues to churn the rumour mill, promising that the 90s girl band will tour again soon. But she may not have received the memo about this week’s mini reunion: Geri Horner (nee Halliwell, aka Ginger) was at Annabel’s for dinner on Monday night with Melanie C (aka Sporty). They were there in support of Childline and the NSPCC, and even performed 2 Become 1.


The ever intriguing gastronomic adventures of David Beckham continue: He took a break from World Cup fever to pay tribute to his dear old mum Sandra on Tuesday. He took her for a birthday tea at the Ritz, bringing along sons Brooklyn and Cruz.


Jessica Alba, star of Sin City, Fantastic Four and Dark Angel, flew into London this week for a new film project. She was spotted in Marylebone on Tuesday night, swilling cocktails at Chiltern Firehouse.


Downton Abbey actress Daisy Lewis and cookbook writer Melissa Hemsley were at Ruya on Tuesday night for a spot of dinner. They were at the Anatolian restaurant in Mayfair for the launch of For Good Causes, a new charity campaign.


TV presenter and former member of HearSay Myleene Klass and original Countdown Queen Carol Vorderman had lunch together in the sun on Wednesday afternoon. They chose Scott’s, in Mayfair, taking selfies as they sat on the terrace.


History Boy turned U.S. chat show star James Corden was also seen at Scott’s, also at Wednesday lunchtime. He shared a bite with his wife, producer Julia Carey.


Chucs, the Italian restaurant in the grounds of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in Hyde Park, hosted a sportswear launch on Wednesday night. Kelly Osbourne, daughter of Ozzy and Sharon, joined the celebrations, as did radio DJ Nick Grimshaw, who just announced that he will soon be hosting a series of brunch parties at Mayfair’s Sexy Fish.
