  • Naked Attraction: How low can this Channel 4 dating show go

    We’d barely met host Anna Richardson (the only one who didn’t get her kit off, having flatly refused) and the first contestant, 32-year-old Aina, before the screens in front of them shot up and revealed six specimens of naked manhood from the waist down. Not much of the conversation that followed focused on feet, knees or thighs – and that was about the size of it. As the screen rose higher to reveal chests, then faces, the emphasis remained on flesh, though other features – especially eyes and voices – eventually came in to play. Nudity on television has come a long way since, say, the furore over Patrick Malahide’s bobbing bottom in The Singing Detective 30 years ago. Current drama series such

  • Which Parts Of Britain Get The Most Money From The EU? (10 photos)

    In the build up to the Referendum, we heard a lot about the amount of money Britain puts into the EU – but little about how much we get out of it.  While the hotly disputed figure of £350m a week was widely circulated, the Remain campaign failed to articulate what comes back. In fact, it’s only since the Brexit vote that those who benefit from EU funding have begun to ask: what now? One council – in an area that voted to Leave – notoriously asked for reassurances that this money would not be cut. But who gets the most? These are the areas that, between 2014 and 2020, are scheduled to receive the most money from the EU Structural and Investment fund.

  • Fraud: eBay buyer lied about Louis Vuitton bag and sent back fake 

    As a first-time mother, I need extra money – I no longer work as I take care of our baby. I put several bags and some unwanted items from around the house up for sale on eBay and this went well.  Then I listed a Louis Vuitton Trouville bag for £450 with best offer accepted. Complying with eBay’s listing policy, I took photos of every angle of the bag, showing that it was in excellent condition. The zip ran smoothly and there was no damage to the canvas. I included a detailed description on the details page. A buyer made an offer of £330, which I accepted because I needed the money to pay the bills for that week.  They wanted to pay through PayPal outside eBay. I didn’t agree to this as I thought
