Time for a double brother date night: Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner — who will return to screens in the final series of the acclaimed drama soon — was at 34 in Mayfair on Monday night with her boyfriend Joe Jonas, frontman of pop band DNCE. They were joined by Nick Jonas, Joe’s popstar brother, and his girlfriend Priyanka Chopra, actress and star of Quantico.


The next night Nick and Priyanka, who only recently had been keeping their relationship under wraps, had dinner on Tuesday evening to celebrate Priyanka’s birthday. They were seen at Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone. Chopra is a close friend of The Duchess of Sussex and was at the royal wedding earlier this year. No sign, as yet, of an under-the-radar girls’ night out while she’s in London.


Nigella Lawson, cookbook author, and TV star ventured east to Shoreditch on Tuesday night, having heard good things about the recently opened restaurant Brat from acclaimed chef Tomos Parry.

She enjoyed the grilled bread with anchovy so much that she had to order three. She also had the langoustines and the cheesecake.


Hugh Jackman, the all-singing, all-dancing star of The Greatest Showman, was at Sexy Fish for a bite with his family on Wednesday. The X-Men actor was apparently a complete gentleman to all but was nevertheless oblivious to fellow celebrity Aubrey Plaza — who played the wonderfully acerbic April in Parks and Recreation. She was also eating on the street terrace of the Berkeley Square Japanese restaurant.


Last week, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets to tell U.S. President Donald Trump that he’s not welcome in the United Kingdom. His daughter, Tiffany Trump, evidently didn’t get the memo: she dined at The Arts Club in Mayfair on Wednesday night. She made the visit with her mother, Marla Maples.


The British public may be addicted to Love Island but some of its departed contestants are evidently happy to watch it on catch-up. Zara McDermott and Adam Collard, who have already been dumped from the ITV2 romance show, put on a united front on Wednesday evening. They ate at Aqua Kyoto, the Argyll Street Japanese restaurant which offers rooftop views of Regent Street.


Model Jodie Kidd started early on Thursday morning: she was seen at Westminster boozer The Red Lion. But she was pulling pints rather than drinking them, as part of an attempt to persuade the Chancellor of the Exchequer to amend the Beer Tax. Kidd has vested interests: she owns a pub of her own in West Sussex and can frequently be found behind the bar.
