TALK OF THE TOWN: Ellie Bamber on her way to stardom … or the junkyard because her old BMW is older than her

“I didn’t expect that at 68 you can have an affair after twenty years,” says Rossellini of New York, whose exes are Gary Oldman and Martin Scorsese. ‘I have to say that it was very pleasant and very surprising.
‘We were caught in my house in those early months and now he’s gone back to the west coast, where he lives. So I always quote to this guy in Casablanca style, “We will always have Covid.” ‘
My lips are sealed, but …
