You can’t beat a pint and a bite at Hampstead’s cosy pub, The Holly Bush. Emma Thompson, star of Sense & Sensibility and The Remains Of The Day, spent a sunny Saturday afternoon there this week, where she caught up with Antipodean comedian Hannah Gadsby, best known for her Nanette stand-up show. Having enjoyed a few bevvies, the pair treated a waiting paparazzo to a spot of Robot dancing.


Singer Alexandra Burke, the X Factor winner who has since gone on to compete in Strictly Come Dancing, dined at Hutong at The Shard on Sunday evening. She was spotted there with her new footballer boyfriend Angus MacDonald, who plays for Hull City, with both posting the visit on the Instagram stories.
