VERITY LUSH: Oh, the indignity of an x-ray toilet

Have your say

So the eagerly anticipated Take That tour with Robbie is underway, their first as a five piece since 1995. And they’re taking 14 chefs on tour with them.

I think that’s a real indictment of the food you get in the football stadiums and arenas where they’re playing.

They’ve actually worked out that it’s cheaper to employ 14 full-time chefs to cook gourmet meals for the band and crew than it is to buy everyone burgers from inside the stadia. That’s how outrageous the prices are at these places.

Coldplay have posted a series of mysterious tweets through their official Twitter page, triggering speculation among their fans, with the majority agreeing that they could be potential single or album titles.

The first read: ‘Maybe the trees are gone.’ A second states: ‘Maybe the streets alight.’ A third, and – so far - final, tweet teased: ‘I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song.’ Of course, they could just be being pretentious!

Shaun Ryder from the Happy Mondays is convinced the Stone Roses are on the verge of signing a big money deal to seal their comeback. He said: ‘I think it’ll happen, I really do.’

Adele has said that she is ‘mortified’ that she has had to pay so much tax when she doesn’t think it goes to good use. She said: ‘I use the NHS, I can’t use public transport any more, doing what I do.

‘I went to state school. I’m mortified to have to pay 50 per cent.

‘Trains are always late, most state schools are rubbish and I’ve got to give you, like, four million quid? Are you having a laugh?’

Adele, welcome to the real world.

And, finally, a GaGa kooky offering of the week. Showing her compassion for Whoopi Goldberg after learning she had fallen ill last week, the pop star had a fresh batch of chicken soup delivered to the actress’ door.
