The annual flower show, which is held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, attracted a vast array of famous faces. The Queen made her yearly visit to the show and found herself wandering through trenches, in a garden created to commemorate the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. The ‘No Man’s Land’ garden, features a crater hole as a pond which acts as a stark reminder of the damage made to, not only the soldiers embroiled in the conflict, but the land on which they fought.

The 'Newsnight' presenter didn't shave for once, so what?
Newsnight presenter, Jeremy Paxman has said that he may keep his beard firmly attached to his face after he finally decided to jump on to the ubiquitous trend for facial hair. The BBC journalist, who had previously dismissed opportunities to discuss his uncharacteristically hairy face, was forced to respond after the trending term "Paxman beard" took hold on Twitter.
Paxo Has Stirred Up A Twitter Storm By Choosing To Ditch His Razor.
The phrase started to trend mere minutes after the late-night news programme began airing on BBC2 on Monday (12th Aug). "I have grown a beard for the last few summers, and suddenly wondered whether I really needed to shave it off," said Paxman to BBC News prompted by the huge reaction to his sudden change in grooming. "I may keep it or I may shave it off, but I think I'll make my own decision," he added in his typically bristly style.

Wildlife and travelling TV presenter Ben Fogle loves a good trip – but this is ridiculous! The 39 year-old, who is known for hosting such programs as Countryfile and Swimming With Crocodiles, found himself about to jump out of a window into the sky (with diamonds) after apparently taking LSD during a trip to a country pub with his wife while staying with friends.
However, before you all start getting outraged (or impressed) with Fogal’s acid taking, it turns out he was spiked – and it was actually quite a dismal experience for the usually mild-mannered TV Host. “I don’t like using the word, but I was acting like a stereotypical madman. I thought I was doomed, I thought I was going to die” Fogle told The Daily Mail, after spending three days in hospital following the incident, having tests on his heart and brain, as well as seeing psychiatrists. They came to the conclusion that he’d taken LSD, although Fogle says that he’s never voluntarily taken recreational drugs.
“I started feeling hypersensitive and I knew something was wrong. I picked my daughter up and she felt incredibly light, like a grain of rice” said Fogle of how he started feeling once they’d returned home. “I suddenly had this compulsion to jump through a window. I went back into the bedroom and asked my wife, ‘Are you feeling OK’. she said ‘yeah, are you?’ and I said, ‘Look at me’. I was staring at her and then I just flipped and had a full on psychotic episode. I was ranting, marching up and down, hitting walls, trying to jump out of windows. My wife ran out and had to get my friends who had to restrain me.”
