EMILY PRESCOTT: Jack Whitehall’s ‘on the bun’

EMILY PRESCOTT: Jack Whitehall’s ‘on the bun’ after walking out of a posh bakers without paying for £70 of treats

Most of us get excited by the prospect of a sticky bun. But Jack Whitehall was so keen to tuck into goodies from a posh London bakery that it seems he forgot to pay for them.

I’m told that the comic picked up a £70 box of treats at Buns From Home in Notting Hill – but was unable to settle the bill as the store’s card machine wasn’t working. 

He was pointed towards a nearby cashpoint, and left with his buns, but never returned. ‘It was manically busy,’ says a ex-employee who was there. ‘We all make mistakes, but he could have come back another day.’ 

However, there’s no bun fight, with the bakery saying: ‘It’s buns on the house for all when our card machines are down, not just celebs!’

We tried to contact Jack’s team for a comment but got no response.

Ben’s good bash

The beaver-based installation he sponsored has just won top prize at the Chelsea Flower Show, and now Tory environmentalist Ben Goldsmith is staging a £500-a-head party to help save the dam-dwellers.

Wittily titled Saturday Night Beaver, though it takes place on Wednesday, the bash will be hosted by Joanna Lumley and Stephen Fry. Ben’s wife Jemima, left with him, will treat 150 guests at her London restaurant Wild By Tart to a feast, although she is seven months pregnant, while a folk band will perform Bring Back The Beaver, a song that Ben admits contains ‘a bit of innuendo’…

In the TV adaptation of his best-selling book This Is Going To Hurt – a diary of life on an NHS maternity ward – celebrity doctor Adam Kay was creator, executive producer and the model for the main character, played by Ben Whishaw. Kay even had a cameo role in one episode.

So why was he a no-show at a party the crew held at the end of production? In fact he wasn’t the only absentee as a number of people on the show seemingly didn’t go.

Not a healthy sign…

Mayfair goes top of the tables

Is this Britain’s poshest street party? While neighbourhoods across the country will be putting out plastic chairs and sarnies for the Platinum Jubilee, in Mayfair they’re laying out gourmet food and Earl Grey cocktails.

It will sprawl across the district on Thursday and Friday, with a huge table designed by aristo sisters Alice and Jemima Herbert, who run the ‘table-scaping’ firm LAY London, blocking North Audley Street.

‘We’ve never done a table that’s 200ft long before,’ Lady Alice, pictured left, tells me.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is expected to draw 20,000 visitors – even though there are only 150 places at the table!
