MOLLY-MAE Hague has been accused of faking feelings for Tommy Fury after she secretly sniped that the thought of kissing him made her sick. My sources say the social media influencer — who is now favourite to win the ITV2 show with Tommy — made the jibe to another contestant off camera days after entering the villa. Molly-Mae has been accused of playing a game in the Love Island villa And it sparked a flurry of questions from sceptical Islanders, who I hear have been quizzing her since the beginning on her reasons for taking part. Our revelation will shock millions of fans who have bought into Molly and Tommy’s fairy tale romance on screen. It comes as Molly was also accused of being a fake by a close pal, who claimed she confessed to having a game plan before jetting to Majorca. My source said last night: “Molly does seem to be besotted with Tommy. But that definitely wasn’t the case at first. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae are the only in the villa to have made their relationship official “Soon after she arrived, she quietly told one of the other Islanders that if Tommy, who liked her from the start, was to kiss her she would probably be sick. “To go from there, to a full-blown romance is a hell of a U-turn.” The source continued: “From the minute Molly entered the villa, all of the Islanders were asking if she was really there to find love or if she was just faking it. “It wasn’t just one person. Everyone was suspicious of her motives from the outset. So she did have to field a lot of awkward questions about why she was there. Molly-Mae entered the villa on Day 4 of the competition “They wanted to know if she was really interested in finding love or if she just wanted to boost her profile and collect the £50,000 prize. “Molly’s job as an Instagram influencer didn’t help matters because the Islanders felt that the fact she is paid to have a social media profile spoke volumes. “Molly never confessed to the others she was playing a game but she also never managed to convince them that she was there for genuine reasons. “The fact that she was so cold to Tommy at first, and then suddenly switched her feelings on, hasn’t done much to dispel the rumour that she is putting it on.” The couple are the current favourites to win the ITV2 show Earlier this month viewers saw Molly and Tommy become official after the boxer asked her, on a terrace scattered with rose petals, to be his girlfriend. They were also the first couple to declare their love for each other, as they lay cuddling in bed. But a pal of Molly’s, who has known her for years, cryptically warned that her actions may be more calculated than they seem. The friend told me: “Molly had her reasons for going into the villa, and she decided in advance how she was going to play things. Sources claim that Molly-Mae initially didn’t want to kiss Tommy “I could tell you now — based on conversations before she went in — how real she is with Tommy.” A spokesman for Molly-Mae: “She has gone there to find love and we have no doubt Molly and Tommy are genuinely attracted to one another.” Next Monday will see the couple up against remaining contenders in a bid to win the show and collect the £50,000 prize money. Other couples tipped to finish on top are Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames, and Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard. Anton sock shock Love Island’s Anton Danyluk once bared all as a naked butler – covering his privates with just a sock. The Scottish lothario, who worked for Angel Butlers near Falkirk, was providing his cocktail- making services at an Ann Summers party three years ago. Before entering the villa Anton worked as a naked butler for Ann Summers parties A guest at the party said: “Anton was lapping the attention up. He and the other butlers were making drinks and getting us to play games. He charmed everyone.” It seems he was quicker off the mark serving up booze at the risque bash than he was finding his match in the Love Island villa. Island fakery There were more accusations of fakery after former Love Islander Olivia Attwood laid into Curtis for dumping Amy Hart. On the professional dancer, who is now coupled up with Maura, Olivia said: “Curtis is playing a game. Love Island 2017 contestant Olivia Atwood finished third place with Chris Hughes “I think he dumped Amy because he heard she was unpopular on the outside.” Olivia, who has just launched tan line SOSU Dripping Gold Body Tune, continued: “As soon as they weren’t voted into the top three couples, he jumped ship. He wants to win.” Bella romance may have Hadid. . . again Model Bella Hadid’s relationship with singer The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – has had more ups and downs than her hemlines on the catwalk. But my sources tell me the couple’s four-year on/off romance is on its last legs after a series of furious rows. Bella Hadid’s relationship with The Weeknd could be coming to an end One said: “Bella and Abel have had their rough patches in the past, and always managed to make up. But things have now reached an all-time low. “They are constantly fighting, and friends and family on both sides are beginning to wonder if the relationship might not be what’s best for them. “They are now hanging by a thread.” The couple were first spotted together at California’s Coachella Festival in April 2015. They made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Grammys in February 2016, but broke up nine months later after their hectic schedules made it difficult for them to spend time together. The famous couple went public for the first time in 2015 The Weeknd moved on with Selena Gomez in 2017, before reuniting with Bella last year. Last February, they appeared to be more loved up than ever – posting an Instagram snap of themselves in matching camo outfits at Abel’s birthday party. But on a low-key night out in Malibu last month, Bella looked pensive as the pair were whisked away in a car. And the source went on: “There are a lot of feelings there obviously, so they could still turn things around. But they have not been happy for a while.” Late Bey’s way out of lion Disney bosses are definitely not Feeling The Love Tonight for Beyonce after The Lion King star snubbed interviews at the recent UK premiere.

MUMS have shared their horror over how dirty their clothes and sheets really are after strip washing them revealed disgusting amounts of grime still festering in them. Even if you use your washing machine regularly, it seems layers of filth are still lingering in our clothes. One woman was horrified at the amount of dirt which came out of her freshly washed bras Strip washing is where you soak your linens in a tub with detergent for hours, which draws out all the dirt. One mum decided to try the tip on six of her bras, and horrified at the result. Posting on Facebook, she shared a photo of a tub filled with brown, murky water. She captioned it: “I did the soak thing on 6 of my bras… ewwwww.” Other mums decided to try the tip on their sheets But she added that she strip washed them fresh from the washing machine, revealing the amount of dirt regular washing didn’t remove. Explaining how she got them so clean, she wrote: “I did just a tablespoon of Cold Power and a tablespoon of soak stuff. “Diluted that first in cold water.

MUMS have shared their horror over how dirty their clothes and sheets really are after strip washing them revealed disgusting amounts of grime still festering in them. Even if you use your washing machine regularly, it seems layers of filth are still lingering in our clothes. One woman was horrified at the amount of dirt which came out of her freshly washed bras Strip washing is where you soak your linens in a tub with detergent for hours, which draws out all the dirt. One mum decided to try the tip on six of her bras, and horrified at the result. Posting on Facebook, she shared a photo of a tub filled with brown, murky water. She captioned it: “I did the soak thing on 6 of my bras… ewwwww.” Other mums decided to try the tip on their sheets But she added that she strip washed them fresh from the washing machine, revealing the amount of dirt regular washing didn’t remove. Explaining how she got them so clean, she wrote: “I did just a tablespoon of Cold Power and a tablespoon of soak stuff. “Diluted that first in cold water.

Celebrities really do get everything. The glam squads, the invites to the Met Gala, the freebies from designers, entrance to the most exclusive parties… and the food. Dear lord, the food. Being a showbiz fiend, I have become aware of countless restaurants I have never been to thanks to pictures of Kardashians strutting out of them. Whether it’s LA eateries The Nice Guy and Craig’s, or London restaurants like Nobu and Zuma, I am green with envy as I think about what the stars have been tucking into. So, I often indulge in my favourite hobby – reading menus online. I usually do it before I go to a restaurant, but in this case, I was critically reading the menus of £££ venues with waiting lists as long as my arm. And that got me thinking – which celebrity haunt is the best of them all? In search of the answer to this difficult question, I looked through hundreds of starters and entrees and mentally savoured every last imaginary bite to decide who is the champion of champions when it comes to feeding the famous. So take a deep breath, grab your trousers with the loosest waistband and remember – it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Nobu Robert De Niro is co-owner of Nobu (Picture: Stuart Wilson/Getty Images) Where is it? Where isn’t it, tbh. There’s branches in London, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, Monte Carlo, Dubai and the Bahamas, to name but a few. Star-spotting value? David and Victoria Beckham, the Kardashians, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber are just a few of the stars who regularly rock up to Nobu – and it’s co-owned by Robert DeNiro. What’s on the menu? Nobu is all about Japanese fare, with a wealth of sushi and sashimi on the menu. And for anyone who likes this kind of food, you are in for a treat, because it sounds INSANE. The Nobu menu is split into classic and ‘now’, so I perused both and have come up with just a few things I want. From the cold classics – yellowtail tartare with caviar and tuna sashimi salad with matsuhisa dressing. From the hot classics – spicy garlic scallops and their signature black cod miso. From the ‘now’ cold options, king crab and tuna tostadas sound unreal, as does the crispy rice with tuna. From the hot menu, the soft shell carab kara-age with ponzu sounds divine, and what’s a trip to a high-end Japanese restaurant without some wagyu, here offered in gyoza? Then there’s the tempura, nigiri and sashimi and sushi rolls on offer – I’d be inclined to opt for a California roll, spicy salmon nigiri and shrimp tempura. There’s also a dessert menu with some delicious sounding options of Nobu’s chocolate tart, Kumo (a proscecco mousse with lemon and thyme sponge and sorbet) and an apple crumble with toffee sauce and peanut ice-cream), but after all that imaginary fish I just ate, I’m not sure I could handle it. Value for money? Now, here’s the sad part. Nobu is PRICEY. It’s owned by Robert De Niro, of course it’s pricey. If I ordered my dream menu up there, it would set me back £241. And that’s before you even consider the Japanese A5 Wagyu, which costs £58 for 75g. And the portions are not big. The black cod is more like ‘finger food’, according to food writer Grace Dent, and without a lot of starchy carbs like rice and fried dumplings, you may leave this mega-bucks restaurant not absolutely fit to burst, which is a pre-requisite for me for any dinner. Giorgio Baldi Rihanna is a huge fan (Picture: Getty) Where is it? Santa Monica, California Star-spotting value? It’s one of Rihanna’s favourite restaurants, so any chance to eat in the same room a Riri is good enough for us. Kylie Jenner, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and the Clooneys are all frequenters too. What’s on the menu? I trust Rihanna with my life, so I’d assumed Giorgio Baldi must be good before I even opened the menu. The girl has taste. But this Italian eatery in California is basically a dream come true for any carb-lover, and I fit firmly into that category. This is all homely traditional Italian food against a fancy setting, which means carbs and cheese and tomatoes and oil and yumminess. Perusing the menu, I was getting pre-choosing nerves about missing out on something spectacular, and, I cannot stress this enough, I wasn’t even there. Salads include lettuce and endives jazzed up with artichoke hearts, radicchio and plenty of mozzarella, or you can have a minestrone soup or ravioli in a veal broth to start your meal. The delicious-sounding antipasti menu included vongole alla marinara (sauteed clams with parsley, garlic and white wine), aragosta di Gio (Maine lobster served with sorana beans on a bed of mash) and granchio croccante (fried soft shell crab), as well as the usual bruschetta and burrata. There are meat dishes (steak, veal and lamb chops) and fish (lobster, Dover sole, scampi and calamari), but reader, we are here for the pasta. Ricciarelle al Tartufo – homemade short pappardelle with white truffle sauce? Yes, please. Tortelli di Zucca – homemade ravioli filled with pumpkin in a butter and sage sauce? Pile it on my plate. Gnocchi al Vostro Gusto – gnocchi with meat sauce? Inject it into my veins. Might wash it all down with mushroom risotto. Value for money? Celebrities may love Giorgio Baldi, but as a traditional Italian restaurant, your bill won’t be extortionate. Antipasti starts at $16 (£12) for clams, and goes up to $35 (£27) for Ahi Tuna, while the most expensive pasta dish (agnolotti; ravioli filled with sweet white corn in truffle sauce, and the ricciarelle al Tartufo) are $25 (£19). You and your date could each get a filling main and a salad or soup for under $90. I will be upping my bill by immediately catching the next flight to California, but I’ll accept that. Chateau Marmont Is there a more iconic venue? (Picture: AaronP/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images) Where is it? West Hollywood, Los Angeles Star-spotting value? Lindsay Lohan practically lived here for a time, with Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto also frequenting the restaurant. It’s the CHATEAU MARMONT. It’s practically built from celebrity scandal. What’s on the menu? The Restaurant at Chateau Marmont would surely fill you with smugness, knowing you’re at the Chateau Marmont. But there’s food to try too. The menu is a fairly classic affair, with ‘for the table’ options of dinner rolls, crudites, olives and cured meats, while I would shun them all for several servings of bacon-wrapped dates. The mains are all tried and tested – poached shrimp, wild salmon tartare, caesar salad, roast chicken, bolognese, beef bourguigon and steak frites with shallot bordelaise. Seasonal options sound more lip-smacking, though – from miso marinated black cod, to linguini and clams, to pears with endive and stilton. The Vadouvan spiced rack of lamb with beluga lentils also sounds like the perfect dinner to share while ogling a former child star on a date with a Playboy model. Value for money? In spite of the iconic surroundings, the bill won’t give you a nosebleed. The ‘for the table’ starters range from $8 (£6) for dinner rolls and olives to $26 (£20) for a cured meats platter, while the mains range from $16 (£12) for market greens or a Caesar salad, to $45 (£35) for steak frites. Plus, I cannot stress this enough – you’ll be at the Chateau Marmont. The Nice Guy It may not look like much, but The Nice Guy is a celeb fave (Picture: Google) Where is it? West Hollywood, Los Angeles Star-spotting value? The Kardashian-Jenners are a main-stay here, with Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber all big fans. Having dinner here, you’re guaranteed to see someone famous, whether that’s an actual A-lister or a Real Housewife. Bragging rights in the bag. What’s on the menu? The Nice Guy is also a nightclub, so don’t be expecting foie gras or poisonous fish on the menu. This is elevated burger and pizza fare, and it even does delivery on Postmates, the US version of Deliveroo. HANDY. But you won’t see any stars that way, will you? The starters include old favourites of garlic bread, fried mozzarella, calamari and meatballs, with fancier options of beef carpaccio and hamachi crudo (an Italian method of preparing raw fish) and salads also on the menu. The pizza menu starts with the old faithfuls margherita, pepperoni and mushroom, then remembers that the Kardashians eat here, so throws in a pizza of lobster and vodka sauce and a Tuscan kale option. Meanwhile, classic pasta dishes are available, including fusilli with meat bolognese, cacio e pepe and spaghetti pomodoro. However, the meat options look the best – the chicken parm looks delightfully filthy, while The Nice Guy burger is made up of a burger, maple glazed bacon and caramelised onion. Pop a few truffle fries on the side and you’re good to go. Value for money? The Nice Guy is prime celeb-spotting real estate, so we knew it would be pricey, and maybe the pizza, pasta and burgers are better than any pizza, pasta and burgers you’ve had before. But in comparison to Giorgio Baldi’s authentic $25 (£19) pasta dishes, $30 (£23) seems a bit steep for fusilli bolognese. Pizzas start at $21 (£16) for mozzarella and go up to $30 (£23) for lobster (which is fair enough), while garlic cheese bread is $12 (£9). Not super, super pricey, but way more than a Domino’s. All we’re saying is, we better see a celeb couple having a screaming match on the dancefloor. The Ivy There are countless Ivy venues (Picture: Jeff Blackler/REX ) Where is it? There are 14 venues in London, as well as 18 more in the UK and one in Dublin. Star-spotting value? Kate Moss, Madonna and Chrissy Teigen have all been there, and you’re guaranteed to get major posh points by having lunch here. Who isn’t impressed by The Ivy? What’s on the menu? The a la carte menu is very big, which can either be seen as a good thing or a bad thing. Good thing – lots of options and choice. Bad thing – lots of options and choice. This is one that needs studying a week before a dinner date. Luckily, that is my favourite hobby. Starters at The Ivy includes European fare like girolle risotto, squash soop, burrata and squid salad – with San Daniele ham teamed with white peach piquing my interest. Or you could have a ‘classic’ – whether that’s steak tartare, dressed Cornish crab (my fave), prawn and avocado cocktail, or Bang Bang chicken, which I wouldn’t have classed as classic but sure, Ivy, whatever. OR, opt for an Asian dish of sticky barbecue short ribs, tiger prawns or Nori dusted popcorn rock shrimp. Controversially, while Asian food is some of my favourite, I can’t imagine eating spare ribs at The Ivy. I feel like I’d be shamed for getting sauce on the tablecloth. Onto the mains. The classics are the best at The Ivy – Chrissy Teigen was a big fan of the shepherd’s pie, which contains both lamb and beef mince, so that’s a solid choice. Stick to classics with fish and chips or braised salt beef, or swim into the sea section – the linguine with snow crab and the roasted fillet of cod with artichokes and broad beans sound particularely moreish. Value for money? Considering the prestige of The Ivy, I would count the prices reasonable. The servings are big, particularly on the mains, and £19.50 for a shepherd’s pie amd £24 for crispy duck confit is decent value. Starters range from £8.75 for summer squash soup to £18.50 for Cornish crab – and considering the ingredients, I wouldn’t be too annoyed at that. The Ivy is accessible! Who knew? Chiltern Firehouse Who wants a crab donut? (Picture: Jeff Blackler/REX ) Where is it? Marylebone, London Star-spotting value? The Beckhams, Simon Cowell, Rita Ora, Priyanka Chopra, Princess Beatrice… pretty much every celebrity ever was there within six months of it opening. What’s on the menu? Chef Nuno Mendes is a huge culinary star, and the menu at Chiltern Firehouse reflects his time spent between the US and Europe. This means that lunchtime ‘snacks menu’ sees carrot blunts (odd choice of phrase) and oysters sitting alongside bacon cornbread and KFC. One of the most popular plates on the menu is the crab stuffed donuts, which sounds like something I want in my mouth immediately. Then you get to the dinner starters (yes, none of those things are starters). Like any fancy restaurant, there is steak tartare and lobster, although the latter comes in a taco, so you’re also down with the kids. Even the salads sound a bit jazzed up. Beetroots? Have with a few pistachios, mate, you’ve earned it. Garden peas? Yeah, add in bacon lardons. Note – nothing cannot be improved with bacon lardons. Onto the mains. I’m impressed with the split between vegetarian and meat – a lot of restaurants throw in a mushroom and declare themselves veggie friendly. But the mains menu at Chiltern Firehouse is split evenly – veggies are offered chargrilled cauliflower, ricotta and spinach gnudi, glazed cod, roasted brill or monkfish, while meat-eaters can have chicken, iberico pork, ribeye steak, beef fillet or Xinjiang lamb, which sounds phenomenal tbh. (All of these dishes are subject to change, of course.) You know what isn’t on the menu? Desserts. I need to know what I am ordering in advance at all times (in this case, a native lobster taco and glazed cod, thanks), so this is not on, Chiltern. Value for money? For the quality of the food and the level of patrons it attracts, the Chiltern Firehouse isn’t mind-blowingly expensive. Yes, more than a takeaway, but you’re having crab-stuffed donuts, so what do you expect? Starters range from £14 for a salad to £26 for the lobster taco, while mains start at £22 and go up to £47 – with the Xinjiang lamb to share coming in at £90. A meal for two, without wine, would probably come in at around £110, which is reasonable for a special occasion. Hakkasan Hakkasan is also a nightclub (Picture: Denise Truscello/WireImage) Where is it? There are two branches in London, as well as venues in Las Vegas, Miami, New York and San Francisco, and Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Mumbai, Shanghai and Jakarta. Star-spotting value? Kim and Kanye, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have all been seen attending. May not be as guaranteed to be there on a night there’s a star there, though, seeing as there’s so many venues. What’s on the menu? Hakkasan is Cantonese fine dining, and I’m rather sceptical, because I reckon the best Cantonese food in London is found at 3am in Chinatown. But perusing the menu, my stomach rumbled loudly, so I will have an open mind. Starters of crispy duck salad and crispy bean curd peel and classic soups including sweetcorn and lobster and hot and sour sound appetising. And the steamed and baked dim sum platters – involving morsels like langoustine har gau with Prunier cabiat, king crab dumpling with peppercorn sauce, wagyu beef dumpling with water chesnut and gold leaf lychee and lobster dumpling – are far from the offerings of your local takeaway. ‘Small eats’ include sesame prawn toast (get in my belly), vegetable lettuce wraps and soft shell crab, while you can also have Hakkasan’s ‘signature’ Peking duck with caviar if you fancy. The mains are divided into fish – roasted silver cod, Chilean sea bass, and spotted bass – seafood – prawns and lobster – poultry – satay chiken, Sanpei chicekn, roasted duck, and Peking duck – and meat, which includes rib eye beef stir fry, Mongolian style lamb chops, wagyu rib eye beef, smoked beef ribs and sweet and sour pork. There’s also a tofu and vegetable section, as well as the usual noodle and rice sides. If it were me, I’d feast on black truffle roasted duck, after sesame prawn toast, lettuce wraps, royal sweetcorn soup and a steamed dim sum platter. Value for money? If you think a Chinese takeaway is pricey, Hakkasan is ready to make you think it’s a steal. That signature duck on the ‘small eats’ menu? £110, bumped up to £320 if you want Beluga caviar on. I didn’t even know you ate caviar with duck, because I am a commoner. To be fair, this is an A-list venue, but it had want to be mind-blowing sesame toast for twenty quid. A dim sum platter is around £39, while the mains are slightly more reasonable, ranging from a very good £21 for the Sanpei chicken claypot to £49 for the cod and seabass. For two people sharing a dim sum platter and getting a starter, one or two small eats and a main, you’re looking at well over £200. TAO Many awards and celeb party dinners are held at Tao (Picture: Getty Images/Getty Images for Strategic Group) Where is it? Vegas baby! There’s also a London branch, and restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Star-spotting value? DJ Khaled, Shawn Mendes and Ryan Gosling have all attended. Perhaps not as much of a magnet for the celebs but you would get to see the star guests partying, and who doesn’t want to see a reality star let loose after a main course? What’s on the menu? This Asian menu features so many delicious-sounding starters, sushi and sashimi and small plates that I’d gladly fill up on them in lieu of a mane. The restaurant offers an array of sushi and sashimi, from unagi (fresh water eel), ikura (salmon roe) and shiro maguro (white tuna) to tako (octopus) and hamachi (yellowtail), while the special dish of tuna pringles with truffle aioli sounds bonkers but I want it in my mouth. Over on the small plates, there’s roasted shishito peppers, rock shrimp lettuce cups, lobster wontons and chicken wing lollipops, while a dim sum menu offers crispy pork bao buns that the description of filled my mouth with saliva, egg rolls and pot stickers. Main wise, crispy orange chicken sounds yummy, with Thai Buddha chicken, diver sea scallops with red curry and wasabi crusted filet mignon with tempura of onion rings all making my tummy rumble. The sides are also impressively thought out – sake braised shiitake mushrooms, spicy hoi yin aubergine and roasted sweet and sour cauliflower are highlights. Value for money? It’s a mixed bag. If you really want to splash the cash, there’s a $91 (£70) imperial wagyu ribeye steak with yuzu butter to order. But the small plates and sushi aren’t sky high for its location and clientele. Each piece of sushu ranges from $4 (£3) to $9 (£7), while the small plates start at $10 (£10) and work their way up to $21 (£16). We’ve paid for similar in a casual Shoreditch restaurant. Not super cheap, but maybe you’ll win a few quid on the fruit machines in the hotel lobby. Balthazar Balthazar serves classic French fare (Picture: Keith Bedford/Getty Images) Where is it? SoHo, New York City Star-spotting value? This classic New York restaurant counts fans among Robert DeNiro, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cara Delevingne and Taylor Swift. Less reality stars on the reservations, so maybe one for when you’re truly unbothered by A-list clientele sharing a bread basket across from you. What’s on the menu? Serving traditional French fare, there’s a host of menus for breakfast, brunch and the like but we’re sticking to dinner for this experiment. And it’s very, very French. ‘Hors d’ouevres’ include onion soup, escargots (snails to you and me), steak tartare, warm goat cheese and caramelised onion tart and, of course, chicken liver and foie gras mousse. You can also hit the oyster bar to pick up some shellfish, whether that’s the oysters du jour or neck clams, king crab or lobster. Onto the entrees. They’re as classic as you can get, which means you can’t really go wrong. I love knowing I can’t screw up my order. It’s so comforting. French classics like salade nicoise, steak frites, duck confit a l’orange and steak au poivre are sure to fill you up, although the addition of the Balthazar cheeseburger is a bit off-putting. I want culture! Value for money? Pretty reasonable, actually. The dearest main is the steak au poivre for $47 (£36), which is pretty standard, with all the other mains around the $30 (£23) mark. For the hors d’ouvres, be expected to shell out $20 (£15) a dish, with the onion soup costing $16 (£12) and the mushroom risotto costing $24 (£18). But for a fairly standard bill, think of how fancy you’ll feel. Zuma Even the outside looks fancy (Picture: Tony Kyriacou/REX) Where is it? Knightsbridge, London Star-spotting value? Jordyn Woods, Jose Mourinho, Lindsay Lohan and the Kardashian-Wests have dropped by for meals here. Plus, it’s Knightsbridge, so you know you’re surrounded by wealth. What’s on the menu? This Japanese menu had my mouth-watering from the get-go, and it’s pretty brief, so you won’t spend time poring over 1,000 different options of small plates you can’t afford. How considerate. ‘Snacks, cold dishes and salads’ includes fried tofu, warm aubergine with miso, seabass sashimi, fried squid and a seaweed salad. And amongst the ‘robata skewers, signature dishes and tempura’ section, you will find sake chicken wings, shrimp and vegetable tempura, Chilean sea bass and rib eye steak. The ‘robata seafood, meat, beef and vegetables’ part of the menu (you know where you stand, I like it) features king crab with ponzu lime butter, spiced duck breast, sirloin steak and asparagus with wafu sauce – while in the sushi, sashimi and maki roll section, there’s chef’s selections and spicy yellowtail. The entire menu took three paragraphs, and for that I commend Zuma. Value for money? It really depends what you order. The snacks and cold dishes are very good value, peaking at £13.50, with veggie tempura under a tenner and chicken wings coming in under £7. But if you fancy the king crab dish, you’ll be shelling (sorry) out £54 and the seven-variety sashimi moriawase costs £53.80. So if you want to be thrifty, it’s doable. But if you want to be fancy, be our guest. Craig’s All the stars love Craig’s (Picture: Valerie Macon/Getty Images) Where is it? West Hollywood, Los Angeles Star-spotting value? Pretty much every celeb. The Kardashians, George Clooney, Paris Hilton, Mariah Carey, Iggy Azalea… the list goes on. What’s on the menu? Craig’s is AMERICAN. That’s what you need to know before crossing the hallowed gates. That’s why the salad menu contains a ‘classic wedge’ (wedge, a term I don’t want with my food unless it’s potato) and the appetisers have pigs in blankets with ketchup and meatballs. A pizza menu follows up, with sausage, vegan sausage, margherita and pepperoni among the options, while the pasta options include the very intriguing Jerry Weintraub’s Spaghetti Clam Show, which I would obviously order because of the name. Chicken lovers can choose between honey truffle, southern-fried chicken, chicken parmigiana or roasted half chicken, while the seafood menu offers cioppino (shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels and calamari in a spicy broth), scallops, whitefish piccata and sesame crusted salmon. The grill features beef from ‘Murica, including filet mignon, a New York steak and prime rib-eye, and of course meatloaf with mashed potatoes. Vegans aren’t left out though – Craig’s caters for the plant-based with vegan takes on puttanesca alla vodka, chikcen marsala, spaghetti bolognese, cheeseburger and chicken parmigiana. America jumped out. Value for money? Mains start at $20 (£15) for a pizza, and go up to $60 (£46) for prime ribeye, with fish dishes around $42 (£32)and chicken around $32 (£24). But there’s something that doesn’t sit right with me paying that much for food you can get at pretty much any chain restaurant. Frankie and Benny’s wouldn’t charge that. Sure, the celeb spotting could convince me, but paying that much, I’d want the meal to be super special, and it doesn’t sound like it would be. [metro-tag-post-strip] And the winner is… It’s a tough decision, considering a) they’ll all prime celeb-spotting real estate, b) they all sound amazing and c) we’ve not actually eaten any of the food. But I have come to a decision, and that decision is… … Giorgio Baldi’s! Sorry to all the other competitors, but nothing can beat the combination of pasta and Rihanna. Throw in a reasonable receipt, and I am sold. BRB, looking up flights to Santa Monica.

I love celebrities that love themselves. I just love them! Both ironically and not at all ironically. Vain celeb accounts on Instagram are my first meal of the day and my final yawn before I hit the pillow. On my deathbed, when all my teeth are gone (idk why, they just are) and my IV […]
