    How to throw a Game of Thrones party

    HBO’s epic fantasy Game of Thrones is the sort of thing that was once reserved for the super geeky, but has now hacked and dismembered its way to the mainstream. With the eighth and final season well and truly kicked off, what a better time than right now to throw a Westeros-themed party filled with chalices of mead and ale.

    Is this the hippest scarf in south London? How Dulwich Hamlet F.C's accessory became a style must-have

    Michael Fabricant, the politician who looks like the curious love child of Anthea Turner and Worzel Gummidge, isn’t the first to spring to mind as a style setter, despite that signature sweep of sandy locks that could double as floor mop. But the Conservative MP was spotted today in a scarf that’s become something on a phenomenon amongst a small pocket of south Londoners; the football scarf of Dulwich Hamlet FC.

    Male makeover: how to find the perfect wedding suit

    I can’t be the only one whose friends’ children are preserved in chrysalises of nostalgia. For years I’d watched my friends get married and spawn offspring, but I’d never considered that their kids might fancy getting hitched, too. So, when the invitation to my friend’s daughter’s wedding slopped onto my doormat, it wasn’t just an ‘invitation’, it was a memento mori. Was I terrified? Slightly.

    How common are you? Interior designer Nicky Haslam on what's vulgar in 2019

    I must make myself cut-crystal clear. This is not about ‘common’ in the hackneyed U and non-U sense. Nothing to do with whether one says toilet or mirror or mantelpiece… though a few words – ‘meal’, for instance, or ‘pardon’ and ‘serviettes’ – do, I fear, carry the stigma, to which I would add going ‘bless you’ when someone sneezes.

    The unsung hero of the Indian pilot story? His moustache

    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. And in homage to his bravery, a curious trend has swept social media across the world; emulating Varthaman’s thick, fulsome moustache

    Sex Education's Connor Swindells on dating his on-screen partner: 'There is no confusion between our sex scenes and our personal life'

    The opening scene of hit Netflix series Sex Education leaves you in no doubt about the show’s subject matter. The first two minutes are, shall we say, full-on. For Connor Swindells, who spends the opening scene on his back, the only way to get through it was to imagine that his character was a dog who needed to be tamed. “It sounds so ridiculous but it’s true,” explains Swindells, who plays high school bully Adam Groff in the new show, a kind of 2019 version of a John Hughes film — all double denim, big hair and 80s decor. “The idea behind it is to not take anything from your own personal life when you’re doing a sex scene. You don’t want to show people how you have sex, so you think about what animal your character would be.”
