They're watching us. We're being watched. I don't just mean out there, on the streets, though did you know that a quarter of the world's entire supply of CCTV cameras are trained on us Brits. Apparently. Now they're watching us in our homes and offices too. Whenever we're using the web, in fact. They're tracking our journeys, seeing where we go, what sites we visit, where we like surfing.

Ange, we have to hand it to you. You are extraordinary. Less than three months after giving birth to twins, the mother now to six children, you look jaw-droppingly beautiful, and no amount of silly tattoos – the map co-ordinates of the new babies' birthplace, on show this weekend when you and Brad made your first public appearance – take away from your perfection. All those rumours about post-natal depression and strains on your relationship seem so unlikely, now that we see you more radiant than ever, with your swishy hair and sparkling complexion. Oh, hang on. Hold still. You've got something on your arm. Ew. Something a bit brown and funny-looking. Brad Pitt.
