Let it be, Heather! Mills twists and shouts over McCartney's 'girlfriends'

Whoever thought their divorce settlement would mark the end of the vitriolic exchanges between Heather Mills and Sir Paul McCartney was proved wrong yesterday when the former glamour model launched an astonishing attack on her ex-husband.

First the split, then the court fight. What now for Ms Mills?

Joan Smith: Bullies love a weakling – and Heather fits the bill

For anyone who imagined that apologies to Kate and Gerry McCann in two popular newspapers marked a new era of decency and compassion in the British media, the front page of yesterday's Daily Express was instructive.

The genius of Larry David knows no bounds. As soon as you think his HBO comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, cannot get any funnier, it does. Take "The Freak Book", an episode from the latest, sixth series, currently screening on More4, in which Larry, his long-suffering wife, Cheryl, and his closest friends decided to buy a burial plot together so that when their individual days of reckoning arrived, they would all be buried next to one another. Of course, in true Curb style, Larry proceeded to irritate, annoy and aggravate every person in his inner circle of friends with his pronounced social peculiarities.

Strange liaisons: The Prince, the ring and the Bermondsey bruiser

In conclusive proof that opposites attract, the odd couple of the week were Prince Azim, multisquillionaire prince of Brunei, and Bermondsey bruiser Jade Goody. The pair hung out in nightclubs, accompanied at all times by her dimwit boyfriend Jack. "He wanted to meet me, we met and got on like a house on fire," she said coolly. "He gave me a ring and it is huge, full of diamonds. He said, 'Take this' and I was like, 'I can't'."
