Want to sleep with David Beckham? The former England captain co-designed the “David Beckham Suites” in a Macau hotel, the “Las Vegas of the East”.
Not only do all 14 rooms have a portrait of a brooding Becks on the walls — as well as one of his wife, Victoria, holding a camera — but the bed linens are monogrammed with his initials.
Part of The Londoner chain, the Chinese hotel says the suites “reflect the best of the star’s discerning style and sophistication and offer the comforts he appreciates when he travels”.

Worryingly, perhaps, for the royal family, the suites are being promoted as more desirable than those at Windsor, which cost £756 a night. The Beckhams are “by invitation” only.

His daughter, the Queen’s bridesmaid, Lady Pamela Hicks, has revealed her father took the ‘dirty Duchess’ in a car.
“She wanted an ice cream but he bought her a cone,” says Lady Pamela, 92.
“He was so young – he had this terrible schoolboy sense of humor – and while she was putting the cone to her lips, he braked. This beautiful face was covered in ice cream. She never spoke to him again.

Super-rich tech moguls such as Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg have partly attributed their success to wearing the same outfit every day so they don’t have to waste precious intellectual resources choosing clothes. . The same goes for BBC presenter Monty Don, who is always seen in a crinkled navy shirt and colorful scarf on his show Gardeners’ World. He explains to a viewer, “I have eight identical shirts, that’s a week’s supply.” However, when accused of always looking scruffy, he joked, “At least I’m consistent.”

Circus boss Cottle rewards his betrayed wife with £5.7million
The wife of Britain’s greatest showman, Gerry Cottle, once told him that he was “not a real husband”.
Betty Cottle suffered for decades from feminization and the circus impresario’s cocaine addiction before splitting up in 2001. He then moved in with Carters Steam Fair’s Anna Carter. Now, however, there are dramatic apologies from beyond the grave.
I can reveal that Betty was named as beneficiary in the will of Cottle, who died of Covid last January at the age of 75. And he left an astonishing gross estate of £5.7million despite being declared bankrupt twice.

Newly released probate papers reveal that Cottle, who ran away from his middle-class Surrey home to join the circus aged 15, left behind assets including the caves of Wookey Hole, which bought in 2003.

The amount each beneficiary will receive has not been made public. Cottle clarified: “As regards the financial sums that I would like to see paid to certain people, I express the wish that my trustees take into account any letters of will kept with my will or with my papers at my death.

“I haven’t been in an Uber in ages,” the comedian says. “They put my dog in the trunk once and it pissed me off. I said, ‘Do you take dogs?’
“He said, ‘Yeah,’ and then Bev walked into the trunk. I said, “Get the dog out of my boot.” It was like in the movies when you kidnap people.
