Katy Guest: My name is Katy, and I suffer from AGPS Jealousy Disorder

Figures are not yet in on how many couples have survived the long wet summer holidays together, but the latest publication from the Department for Spurious Statistics brings further cause for relief that the circus is over for another year. It will come as no surprise to anyone who drove to Cornwall/Ayrshire/Marrakesh with their (possibly former) beloved this summer, but researchers at Seat, the car manufacturers, have found that couples often argue on long car journeys. One in five has pulled over and told their partner to get out; 3.5 million relationships have ended following an in-car row; and the average driving time before the fireworks start is 22 minutes. It almost makes Ryanair look like the easier option. (I said almost)

Last Night's Television: Jamie Does...Marrakech, Channel 4<br />Human Target, SYFY<br />Desperate Housewives, Channel 4

There was just enough time in the opening minutes of Jamie Does... Marrakech – a lurid, cacophonous whirl of chained monkeys, hawkers, Sufi dancing and charmed snakes – to recall the last time that primetime television sent a wide boy to the Moroccan city. That was two years ago when, how could we forget, Sir Alan dispatched his hapless apprentices to the heart of the souk to test their bartering skills and buy a kosher chicken, whereupon self-proclaimed "good Jewish boy" Michael collared a butcher, made the sign of the cross a few times and asked him to say "Allah!" over the doomed fowl.

Best for getting lost: Fez

Every great city is entirely itself and nowhere else. At the same time, they're all like ... somewhere. Somewhere that doesn't exist. A Platonic copy, perhaps; an embodiment of the idea of the city, whatever that may be. Morocco has several versions – all different – but in the end Tangier, Rabat and Marrakesh seem to me just rehearsals for the world's great masterpiece, Fez. In particular, the Bali Medina, the walled Old City, of Fez. The traditional Great City – traditional now, in our post-Enlightenment eyes – is a place of visual harmony, of vistas and prospects, squares, spires and domes. Old Fez is the exact opposite. The alleyways of the medina are so sinuous, straitened and overbuilt that there is, quite literally, no view. You never know what is around the next corner as it tilts down towards the river. You barely know where the next corner is. There is no angle that can lead the eye upwards more than 30ft. The rooflines are a mystery. The medina from the air reveals nothing about the medina on the ground. The eye is made useless.
