“Although today is going to be hot, tomorrow will be hotter.”

Carol then took to Twitter and told her followers that she has never seen temperatures like this in her entire career.

She said: “In all my years presenting the weather I have never before mentioned a temperature of 40 Celsius anywhere in the UK. This is unprecedented heat.”

Sunday Brunch host Simon Rimmer sparks concern as female toilets scrapped in restaurant | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Simon Rimmer is at the centre of a social media storm over the toilets at his restaurant. The Sunday Brunch presenter and chef opened Greens on Stanley Square in Sale alongside Simon Connolly earlier this month.

But a social media user was less than impressed to find the restaurant only provided unisex toilets.

Twitter user, @Lulabell tweeted: “Just been to @simonrim’s lovely new restaurant where I was disappointed to discover gender-neutral toilets. Men and women awkwardly shuffling round each other wondering if they were in the wrong place. Yeuch.”

Simon, 59, took to the micro-blogging site on July 16 and addressed the situation adding it was not a decision he made lightly.

He also shared a photo of the toilets and stressed, that although there is a communal area, all the cubicles are separate.

In view of his 275,000 followers, the Sunday Brunch chef explained he listened to customer feedback before going forward with the plans.

He tweeted: “Our decision to have unisex toilets was not taken lightly. We have trans and non-binary customers and staff. We also have a separate accessible toilet for any person who finds the unisex toilets unacceptable. We listen to feedback from customers constantly.”

Simon’s decision sparked a divide in the comments as many social media users reacted to his post.

Amongst his critics was Maya Forstater, a researcher renowned for a gender critical stance that stresses the distinction between biological sex and gender identity.

Simon responded: “Correct me if I’m wrong but we were told by building control that an accessible toilet is for disabled people and anybody requiring a more private environment due to religion or embarrassment or anxiety?”

@IanGee wrote: “So people with disabilities will likely have to wait to use the toilet specifically made for their needs because you care more about looking woke? Cool, cool. #DisabilityPrideMonth.”

But a number of others came out in support of the restaurant instead.

Former Great British Bake Off contestant Ruby Tandoh said:  “I’m not sure how anyone is managing to take issue with this.

“I hope more businesses follow suit (and stand their ground against the ghouls who seem to think that Simon Rimmer’s restaurant’s loos are the Somme and not, in fact, a place to p*** after a Campari and some garlic bread).”

@FunPhil commented: “The first unisex toilet I ever went in was in a club in Amsterdam in 1975 … can’t believe almost 50 years later some Brits are making a fuss about it.”

@AbsoluteTerror tweeted: “Everyone’s toilets at home are unisex, amazing how suddenly it’s an issue to have unisex toilets outside of that isn’t it.”

Sunday Brunch airs on Sunday on Channel 4 at 9.30am.

The Truth About Camilla’s Life Before She Ended Up With Prince Charles

Up until then, thanks to Camilla and Andrew’s concerted efforts, Tom and Laura Parker Bowles thought they had a perfectly happy family; they also got along great with Charles, whom they had known all their lives.

After the Morton book came out, the queen insisted that Diana and Charles still take a planned trip to Korea together that November. When they got back, Diana made Charles cancel a planned shooting weekend for him, William and Harry and various friends, including Andrew and Camilla. It was an annual trip and the boys were looking forward to it—subsequently, Charles was livid.

That was the last straw, and on Dec. 9, 1992, British Prime Minister John Major announced in the House of Commons that the Prince and Princess of Wales had separated. Their official split followed the separation of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and the divorce of Princess Anne and Mark Phillips earlier in the year. (Anne then married Timothy Laurence on Dec. 12.)

In January 1993, the Daily Mirror published snippets of leaked phone conversations between Charles and Camilla, the infamous “Camillagate,” or, less delicately, “Tampon-gate,” due to the prince’s expressed desire to “live inside [Camilla’s] trousers or something.” “What are you going to turn into, a pair of knickers?” she joked as they both laughed. “Oh, you’re going to come back as a pair of knickers.” 

“Or, god forbid, a Tampax,” he quipped. “Just my luck!” Camilla jested back, “You’re a complete idiot. Oh, what a wonderful idea!”

This $23 Travel Cosmetics Organizer Has Over 26K 5-Star Amazon Reviews

Here’s what Amazon reviewers are saying about this toiletry travel bag.

“This is the best travel make up bag I have ever had, I am so impressed I am buying them for gifts. Just took this bag to Europe it was easy to hang up in ever hotel and folds down to a great size but fit way more than I even thought it would, plus one plastic water proof section for a wet loofa.” 

“I’m a frequent traveler for business and have burned through countless (cheaper) cosmetic/toiletry bags bought at places like Target, etc. so wanted something with better organization, access and more compact. This is it! Love how it keeps everything in place. Plenty of room for cases/bottles of all sizes, plus skincare and makeup products. Hoping this will last years.”

“Wasn’t certain what this bag would be like but decided to try it. It’s awesome. Well made, zippers are solid and the pockets are perfect for everything. In addition, the compartments are great for all different sizes and product types which allows you to segment all this “stuff” as you need or use it. For example – eye makeup section, face cleaning products, misc cosmetics and more. Definitely recommend this product!”

“This toiletry bag is better than expected. It is very sturdy, and has plenty of room for all of my products. While I haven’t travelled with it, it was purchased as a space saver since my boyfriend moved in, and it’s definitely perfect for my needs there. It’s great quality, and actually pretty cute, too. I also really like the bands that keep my products upright and in place. I would most certainly recommend this item!”

“Love this will be buying another one.”

“This is a nice quality bag. It’s well laid out and I can see everything at once. It definitely beats toting everything around in a canvas bag where I can’t find anything.”

“This bag really holds bottles of all shapes and sizes. I ordered real and itasca true deep color. I had it so loaded with lotions, I was afraid it wouldn’t close….surprised but it did!!!!”

“Awesome case for anyone who travels often and likes to separate products by category. I LOVE the attached hook too, it is really convenient- no need to take up counter space with this bag since you can hang it on the door, handle or hook. The bag seems very durable, I do not see it tearing or breaking any time soon. Zippers are great quality. I got the MEDIUM size bag and think it’s perfect for a weekend trip or long vacation. It fits full sized bottles of shampoo/conditioner, toothbrush and toothpaste, everything. The whole bag fits perfectly in my backpack or duffle without taking up too much space. The large is unnecessary for one person- but if you are packing for two or a family, it would make sense. If you are wanting this product for daily use or your purse, I would recommend the small size.”

“I use multiple products everyday for my skin and hair because I love to layer products. As you can imagine, I have a lot of containers and bottles in my little skincare collection. I also travel and I do not like all of the time and energy it takes to put things in travel bottles, and it’s easier for me to just take everything with me back and forth. This is why this product was so attractive to me. I am glad I bought it! This fit everything perfectly. All of my items, including my glass SK-II bottle arrived perfectly. The caps did not even loosen during transport. This also hangs nicely on the door hook in the bathroom which saves me so much counter space. The finish on the outside of the bag is soft and stylish. I purchased another one for makeup products exclusively.”

“I have tried to organize my toiletries and makeup using many different options and this is by far the best! To compare, I unpacked my current bag and was amazed at all the extra room still left in this bag. I don’t travel with full size bottles, but use the travel size containers. I was able to put all of the shower items in one section, the sun screen products in another and used the other 2 sections for skin care, moisturizers, makeup, makeup brushes, eye shadow palette, etc! When I folded and zipped up, it was still a thin profile. I’m so happy with this bag. (I purchased the large bag)”

“I’ve travelled for months with this thing and it still looks brand new. My biggest worry when buying it was that the structure would become flimsy over time or it wouldn’t fit that many items. Believe me–I have huge, big bottles I take with me on planes and this can pack a lot that it feels like a clown car. As far as the structure, sometimes I come back from trips and I’m too lazy to take things out because I have another trip in 2 weeks. So I just leave it hanging in the bathroom, which holds up extremely well. I am also glad the hanger at the top swivels because when you go to hotels you’d be surprised how creative you can get when you can’t find a proper hook.”
