Back to Marylebone for a crowded week at Chiltern Firehouse.

On Saturday, The Only Way Is Essex’s Chloe Sims headed to the hotspot for dinner with Adil Rami, the French footballer and ex of Pamela Anderson.

Cheryl (formerly Cheryl Cole, formerly Cheryl Tweedy) was there on Sunday night, celebrating the birthday of her fellow Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts. Kimberly Walsh was also among the well-wishers.

A few days later, Cheryl’s ex Liam Payne (formerly of One Direction) was there too. He took his new girlfriend, Maya Henry, for dinner there on Tuesday.

Keira Knightley has become a fixture at Stoke Newington’s beloved Jolene of late. But she does go elsewhere on occasion. The Oscar-nominated actor, currently starring in Official Secrets, was spotted at Brawn on Tuesday. The outstanding Mediterranean restaurant is on the famed Columbia Road.

Oprah Winfrey, actor, presenter, and mogul, used to love nothing more than giving away exorbitantly expensive items on her talk show. But sometimes she treats herself. According to Tom Kerridge, she loves a bit of fish and chips and was recently at his Bar and Grill. “Oprah Winfrey was in a few weeks ago and she had Matson sauce,” he told fans at the Cheltenham Literature Festival. “I love the fact Oprah Winfrey has had fish and chips with Matson sauce. She knows Matson.” Matson, for the record, is a suburb in Gloucestershire.

The knives came out on Tuesday night, for the premiere of new murder mystery caper Knives Out. Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjian, and Don Johnson of TV classic Miami Vice, left the red carpet and headed to Covent Garden for a celebration at Sushisamba.

Laylow continues to be a favourite among the Notting Hill set and those beyond. Model Kate Moss was there for lunch on Wednesday, catching up with her old friend Fat Tony, the DJ.

Top Boy has returned to our screens thanks to a Netflix revival led by rapper Drake, and its star Ashley Walters — formerly of So Solid Crew — is back too. He was out in London on Wednesday evening, grabbing a bite at the Holborn Dining Room. Executive chef Calum Franklin couldn’t resist asking for a pic.
