On The Grapevine…..

*News from the loos. My spy tells me Rod Stewart’s missus Rachel Hunter was caught short in the loos at the exclusive Chateau Marmont Hotel in LA this week and was forced to reach a hand out to another punter for some loo paper under the doors. She was very grateful not to be left in ahem, a sticky situation.

*I hear June Brown and Jerry Hall have struck up a close bond over their mutual love of nicotine while starring in West End show Calendar Girls at the Novello Theatre. The unlikely duo have been popping out for cheeky cigarette breaks together between scenes.

*V Festival organisers have been inundated with complaints from trendy celebrities that they can’t wear their high heels on the grass. So VIP area Virgin Mobile’s Louder Lounge have come up with the solution of installing an Astroturf dance floor to stop stars like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga sinking in the mud.

*Top chef Heston Blumenthal is a fussy little man. He held up the entire queue at the supermarket in Majorca’s exclusive village Deia while I was there this week trying to decide what wine to buy!

*Radio One’s Annie Mac is feeling the pressure to keep fit and healthy because fellow DJ Nick Grimshaw has upped his game with getting fit. She told me: “This week alone Nick’s done three bikram yoga session, two personal training sessions and he’s off dairy and sugar. I mean – that’s just out of control.” It certainly is!

*The Booty Luv girls were on flying form when I partied with them in Ibiza at the Hed Kandi night at Space last week. Vernon Kay was also in the house with me to party the night away. Nadia from the band told me the real reason for going out to Ibiza to perform. She said: “There’s always loads of fit guys with their tops off dancing in the crowd, what more could a girl want to see! We nearly missed the gig because our flight was delayed, so we were freaking out at the airport. We had to get into our stage clothes on the plane and go straight to the club. We were getting some funny looks on the plane from the other passengers!” I bet! Booty Luv’s new single Say It is out August 31.
