I should be so latte (latte latte latte!)
The pint sized pop-star recently revealed her go-to Sussex coffee shop is little indie Marmalade Café in Brighton. Kylie, 53, also claimed the city is her favourite seaside resort in the U.K when talking on Radio 2 of memories of her storming performance at Pride. The cute cafe in Kemp Town is currently having a major face lift, but you can still get their great coffee at a pop-up over the road. A case of can’t get brew outta my head?
Three Bridges Primary School pupils were in the limelight on Strictly Come Dancing last weekend as they starred in Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova’s training video. The dancing duo visited Dan’s old school in Crawley to get inspo for the School Disco theme that week and danced the Cha Cha Cha to MC Hammer’s You Can’t Touch This.

Holly bears all
TV star Holly Willoughby was in East Sussex for her daughter Belle’s 10th birthday recently and treated her to a stay at a pop-up Winnie The Pooh house in the Ashdown Forest.

Decorated by Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator, Kim Raymond, the house was made to celebrate the bears 95th anniversary this year.
