The hot and the not.

Byline: Lesley Roberts

Roy Larner, the Millwall fan who tackled the London Bridge terrorists with a cry of "F*** you, I'm Millwall". And Sergio Farina, who saved 28 lives by blocking the attackers from his restaurant. Scottish tourist David Anderson, who gave CPR to a dying victim. And every single hero who emerged from everyday life to help others. Terror on our streets ends up showing us the society we all want. One where heroes live and evil fails.

Thank heavens for little girls (and boys). While the world goes crazy, babies just keep being born, bringing a bit of joy with them. So news of the arrival of George and Amal Clooney's twins brought welcome relief from bad news. At 56, gorgeous George is no youthful first-time dad. So what? The lucky kiddies have emerged from quite a gene pool. And when dad's energy levels flag, his bank balance will forever be buoyant.

Husbands everywhere...proof of what your wives are always telling you. Marriage is a life-saver. Having a partner helps you live longer (and, no, it doesn't just feel that way). A large-scale study has found you're less likely to die of common conditions such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes if you have a spouse. See. It's not nagging, it's caring. Didn't we tell you? If only you'd listen. You never actually listen...

"Where there are wars or problems, fashion gets more important," he tells us. "A shoe is protection against morosity." They're high heels, love. They are only protection if used as weapons. And at about PS500 pair, they can leave you skint and sad.

Well, did you join the bikini rush? Wednesday was the most popular day of the year to buy holiday swimwear. Annually, sales now peak on June 7. We spend three times longer browsing for cossies than any other fashion item. Then nearly half of us take them back. That's when we realise our Baywatch years are behind us and our full-body-control one-piece with built-in boob enhancers years are ahead. Anyone know where to buy one? scrapped Davidson private.

Taxpayer-funded RBS spent PS1billion saving disgraced ex-boss Fred Goodwin. He was due to give evidence in a civil case taken by out-of-pocket shareholders. Because the bankers learned nothing, they threw money at the disgruntled investors. They accepted a PS200million settlement over the chance to grill Goodwin in court. Yet he's the man who sold them down the river. Where is the integrity in this?
