What Gordon Ramsay's wife should do over his 'mistress'

As more seedy claims about Gordon Ramsay’s cheating are made by his alleged mistress, I wonder if his wife Tana is now beginning to rue all those instant, hand in hand, ‘business as usual’ glued-on-smiles photocalls with her grinning husband?

Sex, lies... and the curse of 'This Morning' presenters

It's the curse of sex, lies and daytime TV. Britain's best known psychiatrist, Dr Raj Persaud, became the latest face connected with This Morning to run into trouble when he began a three-month ban on practising on Friday for plagiarism. He joins a list of presenters and guests of the show to find themselves in a pickle; others have faced theft and rape allegations. Former This Morning anchors Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, who helped to make him a household name, have offered Dr Persaud their support; he was told they would welcome his work as "a valued contributor". Presumably as long as it hasn't been swiped from anybody else.

Brian Viner: Sven's massive strides at City suggest Capello could be facing uphill struggle

Sport, a little like politics, has a habit of making hardened cynics of even the most cheerful optimists. But the same alchemy also works in reverse. Over the past few days I have read the opinions of some of the nation's most worldly sports writers, fellows who have seen it all, and pretty much without exception they reckon that Fabio Capello might just be the man to lead English football out of the wilderness and into the Promised Land, which would be reason for hosannas all round were it not that Sven Goran Eriksson, a similar high achiever at club level, received exactly the same ringing endorsement in January 2001.
