Frankie Bridge Calls Out Media Double Standards After Refuted Loose Women Drama Rumours
Loose Women panellist Frankie Bridge has called out media double standards following reports about behind-the-scenes drama at the ITV daytime show, which several of its presenters have already denied.Earlier this month, ITV bosses and Coleen Nolan both shot down a story in the Mail On Sunday claiming that some members of the show’s on-air team had specifically requested not to share the panel with her.Since then, almost all of the Loose Women presenting team have shown support for Coleen, including Frankie, when asked about the matter in a new interview with The Sun.“My friends asked me about [the rumoured rows]. I genuinely don’t experience it or see it,” the former Saturdays singer told the tabloid.Frankie went on to suggest that she and her co-stars were easy targets for false “feud” stories because the show’s panellists are all women.“When I first went on the show, I was nervous because I’ve read about all these feuds,” she admitted.“I think it’s sad that this doesn’t happen on something like A League of Their Ownwith a group of men. It’s just not mentioned. And coming from a girl band, it’s exactly the same thing.”“Everyone always wants women to fight and it’s a real shame that it undoes all the good that Loose Women does,” she continued.Referring specifically to Coleen, Frankie added: “There’s not one person that I would say: ‘Don’t put me on with them.’ Even during a heated debate on the show, during the break everyone’s fine.“So I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I’ve just never experienced it. I get on really well with Coleen.”Coleen recently revealed she’d been “really hurt” by the recent reports about her in the press, stating: “None of us on Loose Women have ever said we wouldn’t work with anyone else. It was just so upsetting.”Dismissing claims in the original story about her supposed attitude backstage, Coleen also insisted: “I could never be ‘high and mighty’ because my mother would jump up from her grave and batter me.“I can’t stand divas of any kind. I’ve had enough drama in my life, I don’t need any more.”“This is my time to enjoy myself, and I’m not going to let anyone spoil it. I just want a quiet life, feeding my goats and doing Loose Women,” she added.A spokesperson for Loose Women previously told HuffPost UK that the Mail On Sunday’s story was “untrue”, adding: “Panellists are chosen for each show by the Loose Women Editor and senior production team, not the panellists themselves.”READ MORE:Coleen Nolan Explains Decision Not To Address Refuted Claims Of Loose Women Drama Live On AirColeen Nolan 'Really Hurt' By 'Untrue' Loose Women Drama Claims: 'It Was Just So Upsetting'Loose Women's Coleen Nolan Admits Show Has Become Less 'Free' Over The Years

OPINION - Rishi Sunak should resign and stand for leadership if he really wants to be PM
If there is to be an assassination, then there must be an assassin. The plot against Boris Johnson, conducted by a rather random assortment of backbenchers without a plan, might carry enough force to displace the Prime Minister. But, without a little help, it probably won’t. Sooner or later, whether in public or in private, a member of the Cabinet is going to have to let it be known that he or she thinks Mr Johnson’s number is up. All eyes this week should be on the Chancellor.

Reaching for military metaphors won’t help Britain learn to live with Covid | Philip Ball
There will be no ‘victory’ or ‘armistice day’ – the reality of how pandemics end is far more complicated than thatThe Covid pandemic has entered a perplexing phase, challenging our beliefs about what the best responses are and how we should behave. Is Omicron now “just like the flu”, meaning we can relax – or does that overlook the continuing crisis in hospitals, the record hospitalisation rates for children, the continuing deadly danger for elderly and clinically vulnerable people, and the lengthening shadow of long Covid? Is it time, as the government has decided in England, to throw away our masks and perhaps to abandon self-isolation rules, or is that recklessly optimistic (if not just politically expedient for the prime minister)?Our pandemic narratives are splintering. Once, aside from a handful of noisy libertarians who insisted that lockdowns and mask mandates were violations of civil liberty, most people accepted that restrictions were necessary to prevent the health system from imploding and to reduce the risks for vulnerable people. Now, even some experts who previously advised caution and criticised lax and tardy government strategy, such as the public health expert Devi Sridhar of Edinburgh University, have suggested that the virus has been largely “defanged” and that it’s time to “move forward” with our lives. Others react to such suggestions with horror, pointing out that this isn’t an option open to all. There’s much talk of the virus having become “endemic” – a nonsensical suggestion if you know what the word actually means, but one that reflects an increasing sense that, one way or another, we will have to learn to live with the virus, as the health secretary, Sajid Javid, said this week.Philip Ball is a science writer. His books include The Water Kingdom: A Secret History of China Continue reading...

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for Roman broccoli cutlets | A kitchen in Rome
A rustic neighbourhood cafe is the inspritation for these fat wedges of crisp broccolo romanesco, floured, egged and breadcrumbed before being fried until goldenIf you asked for a caffè after lunch at Trattoria Zampagna, it would arrive a couple of minutes later on a metal tray from the bar next door. We never found out how the message was relayed, but assumed it was a knock on the wall or a secret bell. Then, when you asked for the bill, la signora Maria would come over with her pad, unclip the ballpoint from her housecoat pocket and do the sums between the oil and crumbs on a paper cloth.There was a time when we’d go to Trattoria Zampagna in San Paolo at least once a month. Occasionally it was my idea, but generally it was Vincenzo who pushed for lunch at Maria’s. He loved everything about the place. Its form, function, frank attitude and the steady food from local ingredients. And the fact that it was always full of the mechanics who work under the arches farther down Via Ostiense. There was a menu, but between the daily specials and limited quantities, it was usually better just to let Maria tell you there were three portions of lasagne, two of breadcrumbed cutlets and one of pollo dorato left.UK readers: click to buy these ingredients from Ocado Continue reading...
