He cut quite the sharp figure whilst schmoozing with the great and the good at the Venice Film Festival last week. But it seems that Jim Carrey has had his fill of pomp and pageantry for the time being, as he gave E! News one of the most awkward interviews EVER on Friday night at New York Fashion Week. Having turned up on the red carpet at Harper's Bazaar's bash, the 55-year-old Bruce Almighty star proceeded to put presenter Catt Sadler on the back foot as he circled her whilst proclaiming there was "no meaning" to the glitzy party. In what might be the most toe-curling red carpet chats of the year the Canadian star completely rubbished the party, celebrating Icons, he'd bagged an invite to.

Passengers on Thomas Cook’s inaugural trip, 175 years ago on Tuesday, didn’t travel first class... and they certainly travel thirst class either! That small step on the road to becoming a global holiday giant saw Cook – a Baptist minister in Market Harborough, Leics, who developed an eye for a business opportunity – host 500 paying people on a 12-mile trip by train from Leicester to Loughborough for a Temperance meeting.
