TALK OF THE TOWN: Lady Monckton, 92, swore like a sailor when bailiffs 'wrongly' turned up at home

She may be a terribly grand 92-year-old Viscountess, but that didn’t stop Lady Monckton swearing like a sailor when bailiffs turned up at her home in Kent last week.

Her outburst delighted daughter Rosa – wife of Dominic Lawson – who said her mother has been wrongly accused of owing £1,500 to a water firm. 

The Viscountess explained: ‘A van and a car came down my driveway. I went up and asked who they were and the man said he was here to collect money that Viscountess Monckton owes. At this point I blew and used my father’s best naval language. I won’t repeat what I said...’

Suffice to say the burly bailiffs fled empty-handed!

Lost love

Is Iris Law trying to get someone’s attention by posting a flurry of flirty pics? 

I hear that actress Iris, 20, has split from her model boyfriend Jyrrel Roberts, so perhaps it’s no coincidence she’s been in overdrive lately, posting bikini pictures like this one, in which she appears to have turned her top upside down for extra eye-catching cleavage points. 

The only problem? Jyrrel, 24, who is in a band with Iris’s brother Rafferty, no longer follows Iris on social media – so he can’t see what he’s missing. Good job I’m here to help out, Iris!
