Life and Style

At the risk of straying into territory staked out by my more lurid male counterparts, I once saw a strip bar in Nashville with a neon sign outside advertising '99 Beautiful Girls! And One Ugly One'.

The Fried Chicken Shop

TV review - The Fried Chicken Shop (Channel 4) served up something surprisingly tender

The Fried Chicken Shop should really have been the worst kind of junk-food TV. Consider the concept on paper: a fly-on-the-wall camera crew pitch up for three weeks at a south London fried chicken takeaway to film the finger-lickin' goings-on of its (more often than not) loud, drunken patrons. Imagine the poetic symmetry if it were aired late on a Friday: drunk people eating a takeaway on their sofas after a night out, watching drunk people eating a takeaway in a takeaway shop after a night out.

Old golden boy: Leigh Griffiths milks the applause for his second Wolves goal

Wolverhampton Wanderers 4 Gillingham 0 match report: Leigh Griffiths quick to lift the gloom over Molineux

Three and a half months can be a long, long time in football. On the final weekend of April, Molineux witnessed an angry pitch invasion after Wolves' last home fixture of the old Championship season brought a defeat by Burnley which all but confirmed their relegation. Players were jostled, a hole punched in the dugout and obscenities sung. If that was despair, yesterday hope raised its head once more in this corner of the Black Country.
