Kate Lawler scolded mummy-shamers and told them to leave her alone after having to defend herself for drinking wine. The 40-year-old took to her Instagram Story to pose with a glass of white wine before hilariously taking a dig at trolls who shamed her.

Wine gets better with age
ALMOST one million workers with multiple jobs are missing out on pension contributions from their employers. Bosses have had to automatically enrol staff into pension schemes since October 2012 to get workers saving for their retirement. However, you must earn at least £10,000 per year from a single employer to be automatically enrolled onto the scheme. It means workers with several jobs that each pay less than the threshold don't qualify for auto-enrolment, even if their total earnings are above this. Anyone earning less than £10,000 can still ask to put onto a scheme, but only those who earn more than £6,240 have to get the top-ups. Almost half of workers with more than one job earning under the £10,000 threshold aren't currently enrolled into a workplace pension, according to new analysis by Scottish Widows.
