Deborah Ross: 'It's time to get your bikini body orders in'

If you ask me, now that newspapers and magazines are giving tips on "how to get a bikini body in 14 days", it is time you put in your order, which may take 14 days but does not have to. If you pay extra, most companies will send out a bikini body by special delivery, and some even offer a next-day service.

Dom Joly: I've seen the Sugababes and the world's first fireplace

Two days back home and then it was off to Central Asia again. This time my destination was Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. As guest of one of the new tycoons this area seems to be producing, this was no ordinary trip. I was put up at a swanky London hotel, wined and dined and then, the following morning, whisked over Europe in a private jet towards Azerbaijan. It was a little like a de luxe special rendition.

Grimm Tales, Library Theatre, Manchester

It's Grimm up north. Manchester's Library Theatre is presenting Carol Ann Duffy's adaptation of several of the tough moral tales created by the Brothers Grimm. Her taut story-telling has lost none of its bite since she and Tim Supple collaborated on this script for the Young Vic in the 1990s. Into the dark woods we go, following paths of gleaming words that unfold with tremendous energy in Rachel O'Riordan's vivid production.

Consuming Issues: The A to Z of Christmas

A Allspice. Traditional Christmas pudding contains the unripe fruit of Pimenta dioica along with other imports: nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, sultanas, raisins, and brown sugar. Natural England would rather we feasted on Kentish cobnuts or vanilla ice cream. If there's any day to celebrate our fortune in consuming food out of the reach of a medieval king, it's 25 December.
