I really wanted the Queen. Yes (we tried) but she wouldn’t do it... tried several times over 25 years
As she prepares to step down from her position tomorrow as editor at British Vogue magazine after 25 years, Alexandra Shulman joined Good Morning Britain to tell us why she made the big decision and how she feels as her last day approaches.
Alexandra told us that putting together a special publication for the iconic fashion magazine's 100th birthday made her realise it was a good time to move on.
She told Ben and Susanna: “It was when I was looking at a book that I’d published about the 100th year when I realised I’d sort of packaged it all up between these covers and it was all neat and there, and I thought, ‘Listen, if you’re ever gonna go, now is the time to go, otherwise you’re going to be 100.’”
I was offered cheek fillers, acid peels - it's just crazy all this was offered to a 15 year old

Extraordinary footage has appeared from a zoo in South Korea showing two elephants immediately reacting to save a calf from drowning.
The adults acted with haste as the baby elephant lost its footing and plunged into the enclosure's pool and struggled to keep its trunk above water as it tried to swim to the other side.
A human level of panic is seen as the elephants rush over to the baby before sensibly running to the shallow end of the pool, where they made their way over to the calf and gently pushed it to safety.
