Editor-At-Large: At last, the perfect job for Andrew ... He can be a dummy

Imagine the scene at Windsor Castle this weekend. The Queen, not known for talking intimately with her children, will be desperately hoping that someone can come up with a suitably face-saving solution to the Andrew problem.

O'Reilly claims that Jay Hunt, the former controller of BBC 1, dumped her because her face could not survive the age of high-definition television. It is perfectly possible, however, that Hunt took against O'Reilly for individual rather than general ageist reasons. Plausibly, it is not that Hunt "hates women", as a fellow female presenter alleged, but that she didn't rate her.

Is Liverpool owner's wife the new queen of the WAGs?

The glamorous face peering down from the directors' box at Liverpool's Europa League match on Thursday night wasn't a pop star or gossip column regular. Linda Pizzuti had the looks – and was credited with inspiring the impressive hat-trick from captain Steven Gerrard in his side's 3-1 defeat of Napoli – but the new darling of the Kop is far from an average WAG.
