THOR Blimey! The dou­ble Os­car win­ner looked stun­ning this week at the world pre­miere of the lat­est Marvel movie, Thor: Rag­narok. The Aussie ac­tress, right, out­shone the rest of the red car­pet in this glit­ter­ing gold Gucci dress. PREG­NANT women, in­fants and the el­derly can safely eat runny eggs car­ry­ing the Bri­tish Lion mark fol­low­ing new ad­vice from the food safety watch­dog al­most 30 years af­ter the sal­mo­nella cri­sis. Any­one for sol­diers? THIS pretty Miche­lin-starred pub in Old­stead, North York­shire, beat com­pe­ti­tion from the likes of He­ston Blu­men­thal’s The Fat Duck and Ray­mond Blanc’s Le Manoir to be named best restau­rant in the world ac­cord­ing to users of the web­site Trip Ad­vi­sor. THE trailer for new movie, The Last Jedi dropped this week – show­ing Rey get­ting a bit handy with her lightsaber and Car­rie Fisher in her fi­nal role – and it has fans of the clas­sic sci-fi se­ries all hyped up for its De­cem­ber 14 re­lease. Tick­ets are al­ready on sale. THE Hol­ly­wood ti­tan’s fall from grace this week has been of epic pro­por­tions as more and more ac­tresses have come for­ward to ac­cuse him of un­wanted sex­ual ad­vances. Barack Obama and Hil­lary Clin­ton have joined those con­demn­ing his be­hav­iour and now his Bri­tish wife Ge­orgina Chap­man has an­nounced she is leav­ing him. SOME 18% of us only visit the den­tist when we think we have a prob­lem. Men are the worst at 21% com­pared with 15% of women, ac­cord­ing to con­sumer an­a­lyst Min­tel. Peo­ple blamed time pres­sures and fears that check-ups would “hit them in the wal­let”. FOOTWEAR we have seen creep­ing into stores for win­ter has in­cluded stilet­tos with spiked heels, an­gled heels and even heels shaped like the de­sign­ers’ ini­tials. They do re­alise we have to try and walk in these things, right? SALES of the stuff plunged by a mil­lion bot­tles af­ter the Bud­get tax rise of 3.9% ear­lier this year. Sales in the six months to June dropped to 36.7 mil­lion af­ter the move in March raised the av­er­age price of a bot­tle by 36p to £12.77 – £10.18 of which is tax.
