Brits want to holiday with Adele the most

British holidaymakers would love to have fun in the sun with Adele. Research by Travelex has found that 'Hello' hitmaker has topped the chart as the most desirable celeb to go away with and is a highly sought after travel pal thanks to her "fun and down to earth" nature.

However, those surveyed were most envious of Elton John, followed by Rihanna's holiday destinations when shown pictures of the stars in their luxurious getaways.

Meanwhile, camera-loving Kim Kardashian is considered the "biggest holiday show off" by a quarter of Brits, followed by Taylor Swift and Rihanna.

And despite his riches, Lewis Hamilton came last in the poll as the least envied celeb.

Clive Owen stars in new Campari ad

Clive Owen has teamed up with Campari Red Diaries for their new campaign. The hunky British actor follows the likes of Kate Hudson, Eva Green and Jessica Alba in lending his suave persona to the liquor's theme of "every cocktail tells a story" in a new short movie.

The 52-year-old star said of the project: "I was honoured to be chosen to shoot Killer in Red as part of the 2017 Campari Red Diaries campaign, particularly since this year represents the brand's first foray into the world of cinematography and film. Working with Paolo was a real pleasure."

Want some potato cheese?

A man claims he can turn potatoes into cheese. Andrew Dyhin, the founder of Potato Magic, has invented the CHATO, which stands for cheese and potato, and claims his version of the smelly but delicious food will eventually be used to top pizzas, make dairy free milk, ice cream and custard.

He explained the process to and said: "Like a lot of great inventions, an incident in the lab during research and development experiments on another project was not consistent with the results expected.

"Several years later, The Incident was revisited and we found that the texture was cheesy - but not the taste.

"A few more years' work and we now have a robust process for making CHATO out of any potato. And it melts like cheese."

Andrew is confident his version of dairy-free cheese will beat traditional vegan cheeses because he's able to add flavour.

He said: "I love the look on a person's face when they try CHATO cheese for the first time. Their brain wrinkles their brow in rejection with the knowledge that the material in their mouth is mostly potato."

Coffin couture

A range of clothes has been designed for dead people. The 'Over My Dead Body' collection aims to reassure folk at death's door that they'll look amazing for eternity because according to new research, 85 per cent of Brits have thought about what they'll wear at their funeral.

The range of mens' and women's clothing, jewellery and accessories were modelled by women in coffins.

The survey carried out by Lyst found over a half of women would choose a high-fashion couture outfit, while a third would opt for their nightwear. Almost a quarter of those surveyed would pick sportswear and for ladies, stilettos are the popular footwear of choice.

Katherine Ormerod, editorial director of Lyst, told The Mirror newspaper: "What we wear is such a huge reflection of who are and our personalities that it's unsurprising that people now have a clear picture of what they want to be buried in. They say life's too short for boring clothes, we agreed and took it one step further. Death is too long to get your last outfit wrong."
