Fashion: A royal deal of approval

Issa became famous as Duchess Kate's label of choice, and is now capitalising on its seal of royal approval by diving into its back catalogue with the launch of an exclusive – and affordable – range of reworked dresses from previous collections at online store The Outnet. We especially like their green jersey dress (£232). theoutnet.com

Face to watch: Max Irons

While dad Jeremy sounds off on gay marriage, his 27-year-old actor son is proving less controversial, with a heartthrob role in upcoming "new Twilight" The Host and a regal role in BBC historical drama The White Queen

Lexpionage: Clashtag, n.

When the lack of punctuation in a web address or Twitter trend leads to confusion, misunderstanding and untimely rumours of a pop star's demise. Did you 'Believe' #nowthatchersdead?

App watch: The Dandy

Kids and big kids alike lamented the closure of the UK's oldest comic last year, so hurrah for its resurrection in the form of a weekly digital issue, which promises animation, games and the chance to hear cow-pie enthusiast Desperate Dan speak for the first time. Taster issue free from iTunes Store and Google Play

Theatre: The Powder Room

Oh daalings, we're usually more Pinter people, but we can't wait for Nancy Dell'Olio's bio-play, which will premiere in London before a national tour. From 1 June, Arts Theatre, London WC2 artstheatrewestend.co.uk

Food: Pieminister

Our fave pie company is earning its crust with the relaunch of its flagship Bristol site as a funky pie-and-cider restaurant-bar. Let's hope this idea rolls out as readily as the pastry. 24 Stokes Croft, Bristol, pieminister.co.uk
