Deborah Ross: 'It's time to get your bikini body orders in'

If you ask me, now that newspapers and magazines are giving tips on "how to get a bikini body in 14 days", it is time you put in your order, which may take 14 days but does not have to. If you pay extra, most companies will send out a bikini body by special delivery, and some even offer a next-day service.

Minor British Institutions: The flat cap

Government intervention in the world of fashion is rare, but can have long-lasting effects. In 1571, parliament passed legislation that required all males, excepting noblemen, over the age of six to wear a woollen cap on Sundays and holidays, on pain of a fine. In those days, the wool trade was the foundation of the English economy, and the Tudors were determined to protect it.

Englishman nears end of 1,000-mile race

Since a week ago last Monday, William Sichel has been running around a 1km circuit of road at a disused airport outside Athens in an attempt to become the first man in more than a decade to finish a 1,000-mile running race.

Wild Beasts, Koko, London

It wasn't supposed to be this way. Wild Beasts were never supposed to get so big. Or that's what they thought, anyway. This is a band whose recent single, "Hooting and Howling" includes the line "A crude art, a bovver boot ballet – equally elegant and ugly/ I was as thrilled as I was appalled, courting him in fisticuffing waltz".
