Because the six-year-old has started talking with an American accent, like the guys narrating the popular game where kids place blocks on screen to build things. Don’t let her watch EastEnders!

WHO lost their heart at the TW Food and Drink Festival?
That would be the blonde who chatted up a visiting Italian wine merchant after he told her he was ‘single’. Hours later it transpired she had misheard. He had actually advised he was a ‘singer’. Yeah, right!

WHO has to get rid of their cherished collection of beer mugs?
Answer: The chap who has just set up home with his girlfriend. She has no love of the 40 glasses that were  ‘liberated’ from bars across Europe over the years and has ‘requested’ they be removed from their home. Cheers!

WHY do these party goers feel somewhat out of pocket?
They were invited to a colleague’s farewell bash on The Pantiles where they were encouraged to enjoy the open bar. End of the night, though, they were also encouraged to contribute to the cost of the evening. That sobered them up.

WHICH Indian restaurant needs to brush up on its spelling?
The one that offers customers lamb tikka as an option. Unfortunately that’s not quite what it says on the menu which offers hungry patrons limb tikka. You couldn’t make it up.
