Martin Compston claps back at troll over Vigil finale ending

The actor was not happy after a viewer hit out at the ending (Picture: BBC)Vigil has prompted all kinds of reactions after coming to an end on Sunday night, and Martin Compston was even forced to clap back at a troll after he hit out at the finale.  The sixth instalment of Suranne Jones’s submarine drama from the makers of Line of Duty arrived yesterday, and it wasn’t long before social media users were sharing their thoughts on the episode.  One of them even hit out at actor Martin, whose role in the series was the subject of much discussion online following his shock death in episode one.  After the Twitter user criticised the ‘cr** endings’ of both Vigil and Line of Duty, Martin wasn’t having it.  ‘So that’s #vigil and #lineofduty that had really cr** endings, choose the n...

Suspicious mark on clubber’s face has everyone remembering life before Covid

Waking up after a night out to see the pics taken is often highly entertaining (Picture: Mosh)Some hilarious photos can emerge from a good night out – and one Leicester club appears to have a knack for them. A snap from Mosh nightclub of a young man and woman posing together has the internet in hysterics. Standing side on to the camera, he seems blissfully unaware of the makeup of hers which has found its way onto his nose and cheek. The orange glow drew inevitable food and drink analogies from amused social media users. One person said: ‘You know when you’ve benn Tango’d,’ channelling the fruity fizzy drink’s slogan. Another said the lad looked like he’d ‘had a bag of Wotsits’, while a third wrote: ‘Spaghetti bolognese all round his chops.’ Others said the photo made ...

Miss Manners: They insist it’s correct to answer the phone to say you can’t talk

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Does no one observe the dinner hour anymore? My dear grandmother, the etiquette expert in my family, instructed me at an early age that it was impolite to call anyone between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. unless the matter was urgent, because it was assumed that most families ate dinner during that time. I understand that times have changed (not necessarily for the better, in my opinion) and many people don’t cook or eat at home on a regular basis. Not that it matters — the advent of the cellphone has made it possible to interrupt someone’s dinner wherever they may be having it.

The Last Of Us Part 2 multiplayer game is bigger than anyone realised

Not your average multiplayer spin-off (pic: Sony)It sounds like The Last Of Us Part 2 multiplayer spin-off is bigger and more ambitious than originally thought. It’s been two years since Naughty Dog announced that The Last Of Us Part 2 would release without the planned Factions multiplayer mode, with the studio opting to focus its efforts on the single-player campaign. Instead, it was decided to release a separate multiplayer spin-off, but it’s still never been shown in public and there’s been almost no real information on it. In a recent community update, made to celebrate The Last Of Us Day, Naughty Dog’s senior manager of communications Rochelle Snyder acknowledged the fan demand for the multiplayer game. And although the team still isn’t ready to show anything, it sounds like

Dear Abby: I can no longer put up with his old girlfriend’s obnoxious gift

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together 20 years. In the middle of our living room sits an albatross of a coffee table. My husband’s girlfriend made it for him in the late ’60s/early ’70s. I think it weighs 500 pounds. Jeanne Phillips I am finally redecorating the house and I want this table out of my life, but he won’t hear of it. He says there will be absolutely no negotiating on the subject. I have tried every approach. I feel like I’m second fiddle to his past. How can I move forward without such resentment? HATES THE RELIC IN CALIFORNIA DEAR HATES: Congratulations on redecorating your home. Rather than argue with your husband about the albatross, it may be time to rethink how you use the space.

Turn your makeup bag green with refillable makeup, skincare and hair products

Keep your favourite beauty products out of the bin – and save money at the same time (Picture: Metro.co.uk)Most of us will feel guilt over throwing away empty pots of cream or defunct mascara tubes. But the waste generated by our love of lipsticks is staggering. The beauty industry creates an estimated 120 billion packaging units per year, which is accountable for up to 40% of all landfill waste and much of which also ends up in the ocean. Clearly, this isn’t a sustainable state of affairs. ‘There is such a problem with recycling beauty components, however hard we try,’ says Rakesh Aggarwal, owner of online retailer escentual.com. ‘Many parts, such as spray caps, are non-recyclable.

Dear Amy: My good friend just found out that her husband has a grown child he’s never known about. Amy Dickinson This person was born many years before my friend and her husband even knew each other. He was not in a relationship with the mother of this child. My friend is shattered. She has always been proud of her long marriage and their great kids, who are all doing well. Now she believes the reality of her “perfect” family has been shattered. She can’t seem to believe the man she thought she knew could have been so sexually casual. I have stepchildren that I enjoy, and I’d like to convince her that this is not the end of the world. I hope she can get back to enjoying her marriage and family.
