Kristin Scott Thomas caught Covid while directing her first movie

EMILY PRESCOTT: Kristin Scott Thomas recovered at a £15,000-a-week spa in Switzerland after catching Covid while directing her first movie

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas has revealed that directing her first movie – and catching Covid during filming – left her so exhausted that she fled to a £15,000-a-week spa in Switzerland once the final shot was in the can.

‘When we finished filming in England I dragged my exhausted body to Clinique La Prairie in Montreux,’ says Dame Kristin, 62, whose directorial debut, My Mother’s Wedding, stars herself, Sienna Miller and Scarlett Johansson.

‘There the magical powers of the amazing massage and beauty therapists, doctors and cuisine brought me back to life.’ 

Well, you’d certainly hope so at that price…

Bag luck, India

I don’t know if the heat got to Soho heiress India Rose James last week when she took to Instagram to accuse thieves of stealing three of her precious handbags during a house move.

India, granddaughter of Soho property and porn mogul Paul Raymond, alleged someone had pinched a £1,800 crystal embellished Prada bag that she got for her 30th birthday in May.

‘Two other bags were also stolen but were not as sentimental as this one,’ she said.

After all the hoo-hah we contacted India to ask whether the bags had been retrieved. Turns out she had simply misplaced them, as they turned up in a bundle of other belongings.

Hoaxed Victoria set to tell all

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter says she is writing a book following her experience with broadcasters who let her down by bowing to ‘cancel culture’ trolls.

The 48-year-old has been banished by TV channels including CNN after she was fooled by YouTube pranksters into commenting on Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan two days before it was aired.

She revealed a network withdrew an offer for her to commentate on Prince Philip’s funeral, only to offer the job to her father – the Queen’s ex-press secretary Dickie Arbiter – even though he was also a subject of the prank. 

Victoria admitted that she was disappointed that CNN did not take her working history into account before they ‘succumbed to online hate’ and fired her.
