New TV series Chums will focus on the Oxford University days of Boris Johnson


EMILY PRESCOTT: Where BoJo got his mojo: New TV series Chums will focus on the Oxford University days of Boris Johnson, David Cameron and Dominic Cummings

The Tories’ strained relationship with broadcasters may be about to get even frostier. 

Chums is a forthcoming TV series about the Oxford University days of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, David Cameron, George Osborne, Dominic Cummings and Jacob Rees-Mogg. 

Unseen pictures from photographer Dafydd Jones’s library also feature in the six-part series, including one similar to this snap of Boris at the Sultans Ball.

The series is based on a book by Simon Kuper, who says: ‘When you see these people at 18, you immediately recognise them. It’s spooky how they haven’t changed. 

‘Oxford is a virtual film set. Harry Potter was filmed there. Boris and Co were like wizards without the magic. Certainly, they were as far removed from the lives of ordinary folk as Harry Potter.’

Refugee finds home at Yana’s mansion

One teenage Ukrainian refugee has landed on his feet – he’s being put up at the pile of model Yana Max and her Russian husband, fashion tycoon Leon.

Yana, who is from Ukraine, bravely travelled to the Polish border to bring 16-year-old Artem back to Easton Neston House in Northamptonshire, a property which cost Leon a reported £15 million in 2005.

They were helped by former MP Brooks Newmark, who has aided thousands of refugees, including a mother and daughter now living at his lavish Belgravia townhouse. 

On arriving, the woman asked: ‘Isn’t this where all the Russian oligarchs live?’ Brooks replied: ‘Not any more!’
