PARTY OF THE WEEK

Irish Sunday Mirror - - WATTS THE GOSS -

For­mer Eas­ten­ders ac­tress Rita

Si­mons has re­vealed she wants to di­rect her next flick.

Rita, 41, who played Roxy Mitchell and now stars in gang­ster film The Krays: Dead Man Walk­ing, tells me: “I’m re­ally keen to do it and its some­thing I’ve been eye­ing up for a while now.”

She par­tied at film’s pre­miere in London last week with co-star

Ja­nine Nerissa. And Krays pro­ducer Jonathan Soth­cott reck­ons Rita “would be a nat­u­ral di­rec­tor” hav­ing worked for a decade on Al­bert Square. Get in.

“Ap­par­ently Mark Wahlberg gets up be­fore he goes to bed, does 250,000 star jumps, eats a baked bean for din­ner and then runs up a wall.” Life ac­cord­ing to Matt Lu­cas.

Have you ever spot­ted rub­bish in some of the art world’s most iconic paint­ings? I mean, prob­a­bly. But this week, artist Paul Karslake has re-cre­ated some of Pi­casso, Monet and Rothko’s mas­ter­pieces us­ing plas­tic waste at London’s Af­ter Nyne Gallery. Bizarrely bril­liant.
