Royal flush

Only two people have access to an exclusive upstairs loo at Claridge's, which is reputed to put most other lavatories in the shade. One is the King of Spain. The other? No, not Kate Moss, who held her decadent birthday party at the Mayfair hotel. The honour belongs to Young Fogey financier Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Noticing that her co-star William Chubb was attempting to play the hospital consultant responsible for her care while wearing an M&S suit, she called in a few favours. 'Kim had a word with her friend Giorgio and, as a result, two Armani suits turned up at the theatre,' says William.

But since the suits crumple rather easily, he has been instructed only to wear them on stage. 'Most of the time I am walking around backstage in my underpants,' he laments. …
