A notable absence at the launch of Alexa Chung’s new collection with fashion brand Superga: Chung herself didn’t make it down to the breakfast event at the Covent Garden outpost of Peterham Nurseries last Friday morning. Model Amber Anderson and style blogger Betty Bachz were able to attend though.
Ant McPartlin – aka one half of Ant and Dec – is having a break from television while he deals with well-publicised personal problems. On Friday, he had a quiet lunch in Chelsea, where he was spotted with a friend at the Côte on Sloane Square.
The Grenadier, the Belgravia pub which does a mean Beef Wellington, had a surprise visitor on Wednesday night. Lady Gaga dropped in for a drink after a screening of her new film A Star Is Born.
Hello Possums! Barry Humphries, the Australian comedian best known for playing the terminally perky Dame Edna Everage, was a doting grandfather on Sunday. He and his family were at Daphne’s, the Italian in South Kensington, for a Christening lunch.
Sexy Fish in Mayfair has clearly become a favourite of model Kate Moss. She was seen there again on Sunday, this time hosting a birthday dinner for her teenage daughter Lila Grace.

Brexit Ministers are, evidently, just like busses: you wait for one to come along and then two show up at once. David Davis, the former Secretary of State for leaving the European Union, was seen dining with his successor Dominic Raab on Tuesday evening. The pair ate at Belgravia pub Thomas Cubitt. They also polished off a bottle of wine which, it can be assumed, was much needed.
