With March almost here, it’s time to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring. From greenery galore to Japanese prints and layered rugs, interior designer Linda Barker has picked out the season’s top trends and the high street’s best offerings, giving our green room a makeover in the process.
She also tells us about her new ITV show, The Home Game.
Hero dog Vidar saved the lives of hundreds of soldiers when he served in Afghanistan, sniffing out roadside bombs and enemy weapons. But after two years of loyal service Vidar became ‘Gun Shy’ - a term used to describe dogs who are frightened of loud noises and comparable to PTSD in humans. Army medic Angie McDonnell saw him cowering in his kennel during her tour of Afghanistan and the pair formed a special friendship, with Angie eventually taking him home so he could swap a life dodging bullets on enemy lines for chasing balls in the park.

Obesity expert Steve Miller doesn’t believe in mincing his words when it comes to weight loss, and says telling someone they’re fat is “an act of kindness”. It certainly worked for him. Previously four stone overweight, he went on to shed it all when an old friend told him he’d got “so fat” that he was losing his looks. But nutritionist Kirsten Davies is horrified by Steve’s militant stance and says being negative about someone else’s appearance only causes damage - as she knows herself after a doctor told her she was fat.
