SECRET EDEN: Chelsea dinner to the stars is no longer on the menu


It was the end of an era in Chelsea, where one of the trendy area’s most popular restaurants closed after 28 years.

Family-owned L’Antico, in King’s Road near Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge stadium, is a favorite hangout spot for celebrities including Olympic gold medalist Lord Coe, designer Stephen Bayley and former England manager Roy Hodgson.

Its owner, Francesco D’Alessio, told me the proposed huge rent increase was to blame. “Rent used to be £78,000, but they are proposing to increase it to £100,000,” he said. ‘Now they’ve got their own real estate agent to sell the place.’

D’Alessio adds: ‘There is so much history and all the famous people. But things are growing and that’s becoming impossible.’

Hewitt embarks on a courageous journey to save Ukrainians

James Hewitt may have been hoping to hit the Alps at the first sign of snow and snowboard to enjoy the thrill of the downhill.

But not this Christmas: instead, he is intent on creating a very different adrenaline rush.

I can reveal that the 64-year-old former Household Cavalry officer – notorious since selling the story of his five-year affair with Princess Diana – is driving thousands of miles through Ukraine to rescue civilians displaced by Russian artillery.

The mission is on-going for Help4Ukraine, a group founded by writer and campaigner Lord Monson to deliver ambulances, aid and get those in need to safety.

‘James Hewitt is not here for personal glory,’ Nicholas Monson, 67, told me at the launch party of Rory Knight Bruce’s memoir, An Unanchored Heart. ‘He is doing good work for the cause and will be in another run before Christmas.’

Hewitt, who teamed up with former Coldstream Guard officer Mikey Stewart-Richardson before joining Help4Ukraine, is fully aware of the challenges ahead.

In his first public statement about Help4Ukraine, he explains that each mission begins in Lviv, where the convoy — ‘four vehicles: two drivers in each’ — is filled with ‘hospital beds and equipment. essential medical care’, before embarking on a grueling journey east.

Hewitt aims to return by Christmas - to be reunited with the woman in his life.  Monson told me: 'He has to take care of his mother'

“We covered 2,500 miles in three days,” he said of his final mission, when the convoy arrived within six miles of the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhia, still in Russian hands. They took the ’36 refugees on board — [and] a cat and a dog’.

Among them is teacher Irene, who has been living underground for more than a month, with no fresh water, no electricity, no heating, no cooking gas, no clean clothes. Her apartment was destroyed.

‘She’s smart, polite and incredibly grateful that she can finally experience freedom.’

MAMMA MIA! Abba star Bjorn Ulvaeus is begging dedicated bands to stop using Swedish accents. “That’s the only thing I don’t like very much, when people sing Abba,” said the 77-year-old musician. “Because we don’t have a Scandinavian accent – or not pronounced like theirs.”

Gardeners’ World star Peter Seabrook has been quietly building a fortune. The horticulturist, who died in January at the age of 86, left behind £1.65 million. Probate documents reveal that Seabrook left a total estate of £2.9m before his debts were paid.

His estate will be divided among his two children. He had planned to leave most of his fortune to his wife Margaret, but she passed away from Covid-19 in 2020.

Sir Rod Stewart is mourning the death of his second brother for the next few months. Singer Maggie May announced yesterday that Bob has passed away, having split from Don, 94, in September. Sir Rod, 77, said: “I am deeply saddened to announce the death of Bob’s brother. me last night, who played with my brother Don on the wonderful ballpark in the sky. of two months. RIP Irreplaceable Friends.’

Bad holiday for Lady Branson

He’s ballooned over oceans, skydived parties, gone into space — and kite-surfed with a nude female model.

But while 72-year-old Sir Richard Branson shows no signs of being on the slow track, his wife, Joan, has no choice.

“She had an accident in London recently,” Branson told my New York spy at the premiere of his new documentary series, Branson.

Branson has been hospitalized for six weeks with a severe broken leg after falling off the sidewalk while holding two grandchildren, he added. “She’s recovering,” he insisted.

Sounds like kitesurfing would be safer.
