Jolene, the new bakery on Newington Green from Primeur and Westerns Laundry founders Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim and David Gingell, added a VIP customer to their list of fans this week. Actress Keira Knightley and her husband James Righton of The Klaxons popped in on Wednesday morning.

Keeley Hawes and Richard Madden clearly got on well on the set of BBC hit Bodyguard. The actors dined out together on Saturday night, heading to Scott’s in Mayfair. No major security incidents, luckily.
Mark’s Club is usually a place for classy fare, but Victoria Beckham mixed things up a little for dinner there on Sunday night. She chose a menu of fried chicken and chips as sustenance following her latest fashion show earlier that day. Her husband David Beckham and Vogue editor Edward Enninful were among the well-wishers.
Victoria had a good time: she posted a video of herself singing along to her Spice Girls classic Spice Up Your Life. She was a little calmer the next morning, though, when she hosted a breakfast at the nearby Annabel’s.
We may not know if Justin Bieber has married his girlfriend, model Hailey Baldwin, but we at least know their juice supplier of choice. They sat in at the Joe & The Juice on Soho’s Old Compton Street on Monday afternoon. Bieber must have enjoyed his experience at one of the brand’s New York outposts last year: he was filmed dancing behind the counter in December.
The pair were also spotted at a less mainstream spot later in the week: they dined at Zuma in Knightsbridge on Tuesday evening.
Gareth Southgate was distinctly waistcoat-free on Monday. The footballer-turned World Cup saviour was with model Lara Stone at the opening of the new Hublot boutique flagship, before the brand whisked them over for a slap-up meal at Beck, the restaurant at Brown’s Hotel.
Holly Willoughby, co-host of This Morning and the temporary stand-in for Ant McPartlin on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’s next series, ate out with some female friends on Tuesday evening. They washed dinner down with champagne at Quaglino’s in St James’s.
What’s a week of celebrity spotting without an appearance at Gymkhana, the popular Indian restaurant? Hard man actor Jason Statham and model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley were there for a date night on Wednesday evening.
