In the age of outrage, a recent article by former Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman taking a dim view of 50 year old model Helena Christensen wearing a lace bustier has fed the social media shark chum. Smelling blood in the water, everyone has piled on to defend Christensen, including a range of A-listers.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has returned home to India to a hero’s welcome. In a story line straight from a Bollywood version of The Dam Busters, fighter pilot Varthaman was shot down over Pakistan and taken captive. It’s reported that he swallowed confidential documents before being beaten by a mob and captured, filmed and paraded on video - in one clip, bizarrely, drinking tea - before being released by the Pakistani military on Friday.
