Spit that gum out, Telegraph editor is told

Details have reached Monkey's ears about the UK national newspaper editors' Vanity Fair photo shoot by Lord Snowdon, which took place earlier this week. In the end it proved impossible to assemble all the great men and women of Fleet Street simultaneously. Absent for various reasons were the Daily Mail's Paul Dacre, the Sun's Rebekah Wade, the Mail on Sunday's Peter Wright, the Independent's Simon Kelner, the Independent on Sunday's Tristan Davies, the Daily Star's Dawn Neesom and the Daily Star Sunday's Gareth Morgan. But the rest were there, including incoming Observer editor John Mulholland. Lord Snowdon was so delighted by the look of the editors in their winterwear that he insisted that all overcoats, and in one case an anorak, remain on. But Snowdon was not that pleased to note that one editor arrived chomping on a stick of chewing gum, and ordered it removed instantly. The culprit? A very chastened Daily Telegraph editor in chief Will Lewis, who had to dispose of the offending article into a blue napkin. Chewing gum? Will, you really are a total modernist, aren't you?
