  • Zoe Ball’s boyband toyboy says there’s ‘no way’ she’d stay faithful

    Remember when Zoe Ball was caught snogging a fresh-faced boyband singer in a club last year? Well, 23-year-old TayTay Starhz certainly does – he was the man in question, after all – and he’s rather unhelpfully waded into the almighty fallout following Zoe’s separation from DJ Normal Cook. 53-year-old Norman gave his missus the benefit of the doubt on that occasion, which Zoe, 45, dismissed as a “silly moment”.

  • ‘It took me 35 years to get over boarding school’

    Thirty years after I left school, I was invited back for an old girls’ event. I packed my overnight bag, kissed my husband goodbye and made the drive there from my home in Suffolk. Hours later, I was standing in my old dormitory – I’d been curious to look around – and was hit by an overwhelming desire to escape. I’d been a bit nervous to come, but nothing could have prepared me for the rush of distressing memories. I’d planned to stay at a nearby hotel, catching up with other former pupils. Instead, I got in my car and drove straight home. Walking into that dorm had uncovered feelings I’d buried for years – fear, loneliness, worthlessness. And although I was a grown woman of 46 with three children,

  • The photo that sums up the devastating impact of the Olympics on Brazil's street children

    A photograph of a Brazilian child sleeping rough on a Rio de Janeiro street below banners for the 2016 Olympic Games symbolises the devastating impact of the sporting event on thousands of children and young people in the city, according to a rights group.

According to Rio City Hall's official data 22,000 families were evicted from their homes after Rio was chosen to host the Olympics, which had an official slogan of "New World".

  • Sorry, but a degree is a rotten investment

    Almost half a million students start-university this month. It’s an exciting time: the launch of adult life and independence. But the sad truth is that most of them shouldn’t bother packing their bags, because their degree will prove a terrible investment. I’m sorry to be the harbinger of doom at such a momentous time, but many of these new students have been sold a false dream. They’ve been encouraged to put themselves massively in debt to fund an education that is supposed to lead to great career prospects, but too often doesn’t. The majority of graduates (59 per cent) end up working in non-graduate jobs, according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. These are real people

  • Theresa May orders review of employment law as labour market changes

    Britain's vote to leave the European Union was driven in part by a backlash against the political establishment among working class voters who believed their prospects had been badly damaged by the 2007/08 financial crisis and years of austerity. The review will look at whether existing employment law can cope with the country's growing number of "non-standard forms of employment", such as self-employment, temporary work or "zero-hours" contracts, which offer employees flexibility, but no guaranteed work. Earlier this year, politicians condemned British retailer Sports Direct for effectively paying workers less than the minimum wage, while working conditions at taxi firm Uber have come under legal scrutiny. "New forms of employment have many advantages for workers and consumers but there are challenges and risks," said Matthew Taylor, head of an arts charity and former government policy adviser who has been asked to lead the review.

  • Ben Needham: Picture taken in 1991 could hold clue to whereabouts of missing toddler

    Detectives searching for Ben Needham on Kos believe a photo taken at the time of his disappearance could hold a clue to his whereabouts. Police believe a tree currently growing near the farmhouse where the 21-month-old toddler was last seen in 1991 was not there at the time of his disappearance. Officers have been examining a press photograph taken at the time as part of their investigation. Detective Inspector Jon Cousins, from South Yorkshire Police, told reporters: "A photograph was taken by one of your colleagues a short time after Ben disappeared. We've been able to analyse that with the experts who are here now. "We're having a look at the area around a tree that's down at the base of the farmhouse because we believe that may not have been there at the time."
