Talk of the Town: No body does it better for Murray than Nial

Have your say

GRAPHIC designer Nial Smith hit the headlines earlier this year with his Crocodile Dundee-inspired poster starring Andy Murray ahead of the Australian Open.

He was all set to publish his latest version for the French Open – which begins on Sunday – when the Scot announced he was pulling out through injury.

Nial’s body-less Murray kit, right, would probably still be British No.2.

Young diners pull a fast one on chef Dean

CHEFS are feeling the heat in the kitchen thanks to fast-food culture, says a city restaurateur.

Dean Gassabi, boss of Maison Bleue, told how a group of young diners ordered chicken breast wrapped in jambon de Bayonne and served with a Gruyere cheese sauce – which takes at least 20 minutes to cook – then complained after it wasn’t served up in ten.

Mr Gassabi said: “Those who are looking for a fast-food lunch should instead stick to McDonald’s and Burger King.”

Show’s a smash hit

FESTIVAL-goers beware – a theatre critic in New York got so fed-up with an audience member’s mid-show texting, he smashed her mobile.

Columnist Kevin Williamson said: “I go to the theatre every week, and I’m used to bad behaviour. But this was over the top.”

Train firm CrossCountry found in its research that 76 per cent of us will shift seats to avoid overwhelming odours.
