EMILY PRESCOTT: Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones drags her father along to test drive a quite ordinary electric Mini Cooper
It’s a small car for a big star. Normal People actress Daisy Edgar-Jones was seen giving a new electric Mini Cooper a test drive last week. And the 25-year-old – dressed down in denim shorts – dragged her father, Sky TV executive Philip, along for a second opinion.
It’s no wonder Daisy needs new wheels as she’s going places, with starring roles in the upcoming blockbuster Twisters and a new biopic of musical icon Carole King.
Daisy has also confirmed her romance with Ben Seed, the photographer who recently split from actress Anya Taylor-Joy. They were pictured, right, embracing in London last week.
Jodie’s match made in Devon
She’s been engaged for almost two years, so I am happy to report that Jodie Kidd has finally set the wheels in motion for her wedding to former Royal Marine Joseph Bates and has chosen a location.
The obvious choice would have been her pub, The Half Moon in Kirdford, West Sussex, but it seems the model, right, is keen not to mix business with pleasure as she tells me: ‘I’m so bloody sick of my pub.’
Instead the location is Devon, where Joseph hails from. Not even the prospect of rain will deter Jodie, 44, who adds: ‘I like the idea of a Glasto-style wedding.’
Jodie has a crack team behind her. Her sister Jemma, Countess of Mornington, will be maid of honour, and rocker Ronnie Wood’s daughter Leah is a bridesmaid.
