EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Will home alone Boris Johnson poach G7 chef Emily Scott?
Facing the prospect of rattling around Downing Street without his wife now that he’s had to abandon his West Country holiday, Boris Johnson has been courting a private chef.
I can reveal that the Prime Minister sent a personal note to charismatic Cornish cook Emily Scott after enjoying her menu when she prepared dinner for him, Carrie and U.S. President and First Lady, Joe and Jill Biden, at the G7 earlier this summer.
Not only that, but at the weekend, Scott was invited to a special event in her honour at No 10 with her boyfriend, wine maker Mark Hellyar.
Boris had rushed back to Westminster from his summer break to attend an emergency Cobra meeting about events in Afghanistan.

Boris, 57, had personally written to the 46-year-old chef to thank her for her efforts at the G7, where she cooked dishes including turbot roasted with Cornish new potatoes and wild garlic pesto followed by English strawberry pavlova, and petit fours of clotted cream fudge.
‘The menu was truly delicious and your style complimented [sic] the beautiful surroundings perfectly,’ he enthused.
Scott replied that it was an ‘honour’ to cook for him, adding that it was a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity.

This menu is sure to have delighted pescatarian Carrie, who has followed Scott on Instagram. The chef, who has appeared on the BBC Two show Great British Menu, recently opened a new restaurant at the plush Newquay hotel Watergate Bay, where diners can enjoy turbot with black truffle and roast chicken sauce for £55 per person or monkfish for £50.
The PM and his wife love fancy food and have regularly been spotted dining at London’s trendy restaurants. However, neither likes to cook, so spent £12,500 on food from Daylesford Organic over the course of a year.
Carrie has told friends she will be staying on in the West Country until September — not that she ever cooked for Boris anyway.
Perhaps, Scott could provide ‘home alone’ Boris with some ready meals?
Growing old disgracefully, Madge hits 63 with toyboy
The Queen of Pop marked the occasion by sharing a snap of her with her 27-year-old toyboy, dancer Ahlamalik Williams, licking an ice cream while he clutched her thigh
While some might spend their 63rd birthday having a party with their grandchildren or visiting the local garden centre, Madonna enjoyed racier celebrations.
The Queen of Pop marked the occasion by sharing a snap of her with her 27-year-old toyboy, dancer Ahlamalik Williams, licking an ice cream while he clutched her thigh.
‘Let the birthday games begin,’ declared Madonna, who was once married to British film director Guy Ritchie. She has been dating Williams for more than two years, after meeting him when he auditioned for a role on her Rebel Heart tour in 2015.
Also at the bash was her daughter Lourdes, who’s three years younger than Williams, her son Rocco, 21, and her adopted children David Banda, 15, Mercy James, 15, and eight-year-old twins Estere and Stella Ciccone.
Celebrated cellist Julian Lloyd Webber won’t be in the audience for the Proms, even though he lives only a short walk from the Royal Albert Hall.
Lloyd Webber, who was forced to give up playing in 2014 after developing a herniated disc in his neck, tells me: ‘I find it more difficult going to concerts. They remind me of what I have lost, and I really miss that incredible contact with a live audience.’
Hollywood roles are murder for killing Eve Jodie’s family
The Liverpudlian actress has claimed that she needs to have a shower after finishing filming each day to remove all traces of the character she’s been playing
She’s only appeared in one Hollywood film so far, but Killing Eve star Jodie Comer already appears to have come over all ‘La La Land’.
The Liverpudlian actress has claimed that she needs to have a shower after finishing filming each day to remove all traces of the character she’s been playing.
‘What I do now, even if I have like a night shoot, I get a boiling, piping hot shower and that’s my kind of rinsing the day off and kind of stepping out of it,’ says the actress, 28, who stars opposite Ryan Reynolds in the action film Free Guy. ‘Having a little ritual has made the difference.’
She adds of her acting: ‘In the last year, I’ve definitely noticed how it affects my mood in the slightest way. It’s my family that get the brunt of it because it’s just that my head is in a completely different space.’
Most stars would be flattered to have their performances emulated by Beyonce and Lady Gaga, but Barbra Streisand is not among them.
Asked about the tribute Beyonce had performed when Streisand received a U.S. honour in 2008, she replies: ‘Well, she first sang it once, and I didn’t think it was good enough, for her.
‘I always think like a director, and I want the best for my actors and singers. I know she did it over, and she did it beautifully the second time.’
Of A Star Is Born, which starred Gaga in the screen role she’d previously performed, Babs says: ‘I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to the version that I did in 1976. I thought it was the wrong idea.’
Dame Judi’s plea to save Afghan vets
Dame Judi Dench is desperately worried about those working for Nowzad and is lobbying the Prime Minister to issue visas for them
Dame Judi Dench loves animals so much she once gave her poorly goldfish mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. So it has caused her great heartache that women who were trained as vets for a British-run animal charity in Afghanistan are marooned out there and at risk of death.
She’s desperately worried about those working for Nowzad and is lobbying the Prime Minister to issue visas for them.
‘So much constructive work will be destroyed,’ she tells me. ‘All of their lives are now threatened by the Taliban.’
This time, Dominic Cummings has driven further than Barnard Castle . . . Boris Johnson’s former right-hand man was a sight for sore eyes on holiday with his family in Ullapool, Wester Ross. It’s believed Cummings, who memorably claimed to have made the 30-mile trip to Barnard Castle to ‘test his eyesight’, may be doing the North Coast 500 road trip.
