He is one of the world’s most famous artists. But Damien Hirst doesn’t want fans to forget who he is.
The former enfant awful of the art world, 55, is depicted wearing a name badge and a bowl on his head while dining out with his girlfriend, former ballerina Sophie Cannell, who is 28 years younger than him.
Hirst wore a face mask around his chin and a bottle of antibacterial hand gel around his neck as he stuffed himself into a plate of chips and a whole crab at Scott’s Mayfair restaurant.
Fortunately, the crab was not pickled in formaldehyde.

Keira Knightley officially drops her famous last name
Keira Knightley is one of the biggest names in show business, but not for long.
I can reveal that the Hollywood star has decided to drop her famous last name. She has informed authorities that she will be taking the name of her husband, James Righton, eight years after they were married.
This week, the playwright’s daughter filed documents with Companies House to register the change.

It comes six years after Keira said she was considering the move but was too ‘scared’ to go ahead with it. ‘I was going to do the passport,’ she explained, ‘I thought,’ Shall I do it? It will be helpful. “
But you actually have to see it written down, and I found out I couldn’t. I couldn’t go there. ‘
Keira, 36, who has starred in movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, Atonement and The Imitation Game, has two daughters with former Klaxons singer, 37: Edie, five, and Delilah, one.

Despite mentioning the details of Prince Harry’s courtship with Meghan Markle in his sycophantic biography, Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie does not appear to be a detailer.
I have heard that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s cheerleader has received formal notice that his publishing house, Meyou Ltd, will be removed from the Companies House register and dissolved.
This suggests he would have been fined £ 1,500 for failing to submit his bills on time. Scobie declines to comment, but criminal action may follow, with property and rights belonging to the Crown.
Fight against royal for the title Earthshot
When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced their £ 50 million Earthshot environmental award, they signed up national treasure Sir David Attenborough and pop superstar Shakira as judges.
Now they may need Attenborough’s gravitas and Shakira’s charm to help them win a bitter battle.
I can reveal that the royal couple is in a dispute with an American gambling company called Earthshot. The nonprofit, which was founded to “inspire climate action through video games,” has formally objected to an application by William and Kate’s Royal Foundation to use the term “Earthshot Prize” as a trademark.
A source from the Royal Foundation says it is “working with the American organization to fix this.” Let the fight begin!

Say hello to the new Nigella! Jude Law and Sadie Frost’s daughter, Iris Law, hope to become a house goddess.
The 20-year-old Burberry model has launched her own YouTube channel which, she says, will cover “ food, beauty and everything in between. ”
In the first video, she presents a recipe tutorial for the strange-sounding blueberry and blue cheese focaccia, which she describes as ‘delicious’, before playfully blowing a kiss at the camera.
Iris clearly wants a finger in every pie: she’s also going to be getting a big role in Danny Boyle’s upcoming television drama about the Sex Pistols.

Chilling out in the sex-and-dragon drama Game Of Thrones, Charles Dance can also be daunting in real life if you ask him for a selfie.
“Hate it,” admits the actor. ‘I try to refuse as nicely as possible, but I prefer not to. Most people accept it, but some say, “Oh, really?” As if it is mandatory, which it is not. ‘
Dance fumes: “I can be in a car, at night, in the rain, at traffic lights, and someone on the other side of the road points and says,” Hi Charlie, are you okay? ” Sounds like road rage to me.
Ab Fab star Joanna Lumley (right) has played numerous roles, but the real role she craves is that of a rag man.
The actress wants to collect used plastic from people’s homes. ‘I hate litter with such a passion,’ she says.
‘I want to become a ragman. I want a horse and a cart and a bell, and I’d say, “Hi guys, it’s Joanna here, bring out your stuff,” and they’ll all come down and I’d pay them for it.
“I’ve found that if you give people money, they’ll do anything.”
They already has an astonishing 13 godchildren, including supermodel Cara Delevingne, and now Dame has added Joan Collins to her dynasty.
The actress, who turns 88 this month, has just become godmother to child No. 14: Beau Bamford. He is the infant son of California ranch owner Alice Bamford and her American partner, Ann Eysenring.
Beau’s grandparents are JCB billionaire Lord Bamford and his wife, Daylesford organic food magnate Carole.
The smart set is talking about … Parker Bowles spilling the tea
The American Revolution was sparked by the Boston Tea Party, and now Prince Charles’ stepson, Tom Parker Bowles, claims that tea still marks the great divide with this country.
“Forget that over-sweetened American shit,” explains the son of the Duchess of Cornwall, who has written a new book for the Queen’s grocer, Fortnum & Mason, called Time For Tea. “Tea is generally bad in America.”
No matter how much you’re willing to pay on the other side of the Atlantic, it makes no difference. “Even if you go to the Carlyle or Beverly Hills Hotel, you can’t get a decent cup,” Parker Bowles claims. That’s why friends always ask you to bring tea bags. I love America. Nothing gross is meant about anyone at all. But come on, American iced tea is sh ** e. ‘
Fortnum created a special tea blend to mark the birth of Prince George, but no such honor has been bestowed on his cousin Archie. Conscious Anglo-American relationships are a royal pain point after Prince Harry and Meghan move to California, insisting, “You should ask Fortnum why there isn’t another special blend.”
