We gawped in confused wonder last night as Mighty Boosh’s Noel Fielding and co. clad themselves as old ladies to perform such musical delights as Charlie Bubblegum at Stella McCartney’s annual Christmas lights switch-on. 'Jingle my balls!' they cried, maturely. (We giggled.)
Never mind all the candy-coloured exterior and festive pints of erm, Guinness on offer, there was just one thing on our minds: is Stella really planning to hook up with Leona Lewis and produce a spin-off fashion range?
We took it upon ourselves to ask the lady in question about the reports circulating yesterday – which said the unlikely pair chatted backstage at the Children in Need gig and were considering working together on a new line – but Stella nipped all the rumours in the bud, telling us: 'I’ve never heard anything about it – it’s news to me!'
That settled, it was back to our Christmas shopping…
