'Lockdown made me feel like I'm not a person in my own right any more.'
Hold on - is this artwork created by Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen images of actual models, new Bachelorette contestants, or Disney princes? The artist and graphic designer, who beautifully reimagined what Disney princesses would look like if they were real women, did it again - but this time with the sexy dudes of our favorite fairy tales. Can we just say that Prince Eric is looking FINE?

The Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has told how at the peak of her fame she was so anxious she called Samaritans constantly for support. Moffatt, 30, said she went through “a bad time” in the wake of winning I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2016 when, despite everyone around her assuming she was “living her best life”, in fact she was struggling with a crippling spell of bad mental health. Speaking to Bryony Gordon for the latest episode of her podcast, Mad World, which you can listen to using the audio player above, Moffatt said at the time she felt she “didn’t have a right to be sad”. “I’d just been through a wonderful time where I’d won I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and I was getting really cool roles on the TV. “I didn’t dare tell any of my family and friends because they just thought I was so happy.” Describing the first time she called Samaritans, Moffatt said she rang “20 times”, hanging up every time before she finally got the courage to speak to an adviser. “I spoke to this wonderful woman and it was the first time in about two weeks I had slept properly and I was like, wow, that really helped,” she told the podcast. “It was like a little voice of hope and reassurance that there was light at the end of the tunnel. “I remember ringing them the next morning as soon as I woke up, which gave me the courage to speak to my family and friends and my GP.” Moffatt, who has recently become an ambassador for Samaritans, said she didn’t know “what would have happened” if she hadn’t called them, adding that speaking to an impartial person was easier than speaking to loved ones; that way, she said, “I felt like no one was getting hurt”. “The woman on the other end of the phone made me feel so brave. I remember calling off and just thinking, wow, actually I am quite brave for doing that because it’s hard.” Moffatt told how she struggled to cope with trolls when she first became famous, speaking about a time when things got so bad she felt she wanted to “disappear for a while”. “My little nan called me because there was some awful stuff in the paper and online... she rang me crying. “I just remember pretending like, ‘oh, it's fine, don’t worry about it’. But really, I just wanted to be like, this is awful. I just want to come home.” Now, she told the podcast, she sends the Samaritans number to anyone that sends her an abusive message. “I just think if you’re projecting that much onto the world, you’re not happy yourself.” Samaritans’ helpline is free, and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year: call 116 123 Listen to Scarlett Moffatt's full interview on Bryony Gordon's Mad World podcast using the player at the top of this article, or on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or your preferred podcast app.

A few years ago, Make Up For Ever was the brand that all trusted beauty experts were obsessed with. Makeup artists would speak highly of the products on shoots or backstage at London Fashion Week and it was impossible to find a beauty enthusiast who didn't own the HD foundation or an array of the iconic eyeliner pencils. The brand's cult status meant it was up there with the likes of Urban Decay and benefit Cosmetics thanks to its Instagram-worthy packaging, long-wearing formulas and impressive shade ranges. If you too were a big fan, you'll know that the brand suddenly dropped off the radar, much to the dismay of beauty lovers everywhere. Excitingly, Make Up For Ever is finally back in the UK and it's bigger and better than ever before. Now exclusive to Feelunique, you can shop over 300 Make Up For Ever products, from eyeliner to lipstick and even beauty tools like makeup brushes and sponges. The brand's Ultra HD face range has also undergone a transformation and now delivers even better results across 50 different shades, while a number of new colours have been added to the eyeliner collection. Sarah Miles, CEO at Feelunique, said of Make Up For Ever's hotly anticipated UK relaunch: "We are really excited to be working with Make Up For Ever to bring this iconic brand back to the UK.

The big reveal has come and gone: overseas holidays are back on from May 17. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, has delivered, as promised on April 9, a ‘traffic light’ system. This is the first and most significant step towards the resumption of travel. From next Monday, we’re no longer banned from going abroad without a “valid” reason. Yet, the small fizz of excitement has settled, leaving behind plenty of concerns. The initial ‘green list’ is very meagre, and beyond the green, amber and red ratings, there was little clarity for Britons who wish to take a foreign trip this summer. Here, we outline some of the most pressing queries for holidaymakers, and try to answer them as best we can. When will tests be made cheaper for all? Everyone will need a negative Covid-19 test result to return to England, a current rule that is to remain in place after May 17. Even those coming back from green list destinations will need to take another PCR test on or before the second day of their return. Many have commented on the fact that PCR testing costs will price some out of foreign holidays, particularly those travelling with teenagers. Some testing providers have cut costs following Telegraph reporting of firms profiteering from PCR test requirements. The tour operator TUI has negotiated the best deal to date: a £20 test package for green list countries. Yet holidaymakers who choose to travel independently, or with the smaller operators who cannot negotiate as attractive discounts as TUI, still have to pick from the Government’s approved providers. The prices are coming down, but even at £45 – the cheapest test available without booking through an operator – it still adds £180 to the cost of a holiday a family of four. The Department for Transport confirmed with Telegraph Travel that anyone over the age of five will be subject to any testing rules.
