SNP ministers have demanded that Boris Johnson drop the words 'Britain' or 'UK' from the branding of a nationwide cultural festival being planned for 2022. Whitehall insiders said the Scottish Government had also objected to 'British' being included in title or promotional material for the celebration of the "very best of modern Britain." The row is said to have delayed the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) commissioning around £3 million of work from creative agencies tasked with drawing up the material. UK Government sources said the SNP's stance was "incredibly petty and hugely frustrating", with the festival expected to give Scotland's struggling cultural sector a £12 million boost. Talks with the Scottish Government are now said to have stalled over planning for the event, which was envisaged as a successor to the hugely popular 1951 Festival of Britain.

Which country will be removed from the 'green list' next? ‘Border Control actually laughed at me’: The shambolic reality of the UK's quarantine policy Coastal towns call for their own minster to aid recovery How to get travel insurance should you choose to ignore Foreign Office advice Greece has imposed new travel restrictions on the popular party island of Zante, as an entire plane of British tourists were advised to quarantine after returning from the island to the UK. Health officials originally stated that seven people on Tui flight 6215 from Zante to Cardiff last week tested positive for Covid-19. The number of cases linked to the flight has since been revised to 16. Public Health Wales (PHW) is contacting all 193 passengers and crew on board. The Foreign Office has updated its advice for travel to Greece, adding information about local restrictions in Paros, Antiparos and Zante – including the suspension of live events, a ban on gatherings of nine or more people, and a limit of four people per table at restaurants. There is currently no quarantine advisory for travellers returning from Greece, though with cases rising it looks increasingly likely that the UK may strip the country of its ‘green’ status this Thursday. Last week, a group of teenagers returning from Zante to Plymouth also tested positive for the virus. The holidaymakers, aged 18 and 19, had few or no symptoms of the virus, and were advised to self-quarantine immediately. Of the flight from Zante to Cardiff, Tui said all passengers complied with Covid protocols "for the duration of their flight", and that all aircraft have "state-of-the-art, hospital standard air filtering system", as well as being deep-cleaned between flights. The planes are also "fully disinfected at least once every 24 hours", in accordance with European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) protocol. Tui has launched a full investigation into claims that masks were not enforced on flight 6215 from Zante to Cardiff. Scroll down for more updates.

Out of all of the stars in attendance at the MTV VMAs, we expected the most out of Lady Gaga. She's had so many iconic fashion and beauty moments over the years, and just when we thought we'd seen it all from her, she pulled out something else completely unique. For this Sunday's award show, she was not only headlining, but she was also nominated for nine categories, including video of the year, artist of the year, song of the year, and best pop. Casual. To help her get ready, Gaga had Joico celebrity hairstylist Frederic Aspiras. As her go-to stylist, Aspiras has had a lot of experience creating out-of-this-world hairstyles for the singer. "Gaga's avant-garde style allows me as an artist to think outside the box," Aspiras told POPSUGAR. "She has a sharp creative mind and knows exactly what she wants." A lot of thought went into choosing the two hairstyles for Gaga's performance. "This year's VMAs hair looks were inspired by her freedom to really express her art down to every detail," Aspiras said. "With the hair color, it was a canvas of watercolors mixed with a splash of a bold color. For the style, I wanted her to show her strength and vulnerability." "Lady Gaga's journey throughout the years has inspired me to create hairstyles and color combinations that encapsulate this journey." Gaga's first silver and blue-tinted hairstyle was inspired by the sky at dusk. Aspiras used a combination of Joico Color Intensity in Mermaid Blue and Clear Mixer for the all-over color, plus Joico Color Intensity Blush and Violet Pearl for a pink and lavender marble effect. "Love inspired the looks," he said. "Bringing all the elements of earth, wind, and fire. Lady Gaga's journey throughout the years has inspired me to create hairstyles and color combinations that encapsulate this journey. She is tough, brave, a musical genius, a visionary, and overall kind human being that believes in love and kindness in the world." To change up her look ever so slightly for the second half of her performance, Aspiras added pink to Gaga's roots with the Joico Color Intensity Hot Pink to "mimic the sun going down and the pink becoming more intense in the sky."
Czech Senate speaker Milos Vystrcil will "pay a heavy price" for making an official trip to Taiwan, the Chinese government's top diplomat said on Monday, prompting Prague to summon China's ambassador though Vystrcil said he didn't seek confrontation. Vystrcil arrived in Taipei on Sunday on a visit to promote business links with Taiwan, saying the Czech Republic would not bow to Beijing's objections. China considers Taiwan a breakaway province ineligible for state-to-state relations.
My relationship with mascara is similar to my relationship with working out. I always feel better afterward, but I'm not always excited to grab my sneakers (or the tube). After all, no matter how steady my hand is when applying liquid eyeliner, when it comes to mascara, more often than not, I end up with this product on my lashes . . . and my upper lids, too. It's almost enough to make me want to skip it altogether (though I'm not sure what my gym excuse is). Plus, as an infection-prone contact-lens wearer, I need to be extra careful about what I put nearby. My eyes tend to water if it's even a little windy, leaving cute streaks on my face. That means most of the time when I'm wearing mascara, I opt for a water-resistant formula I know will stay on until I want to take it off. Since nowadays I can barely fully wash my face twice a day, I rarely want to bother removing stubborn waterproof makeup with another step, too. So, even though I wasn't particularly in the market for a new mascara, the fact that this new Roen Beauty Cake Mascara is a clean option made me more willing to test it near my sensitive eyes in case things got runny. Ahead, see what's inside this formula - and how my "after" lashes compare to my "before."
The mullet haircut has been staging a comeback this year, but tonight may be the first time that we've seen the throwback style hit a red carpet all year thanks to Miley Cyrus and her appearance at the 2020 Video Music Awards. The singer has been wearing the haircut for a few months now, but somehow when she showed up to the show's virtual red carpet on Sunday night, her hair looked even more mullet-y than before. Cyrus's style for the event mimicked the '80s glam that seemed to inspire her latest music video for "Midnight Sky." She wore a strapless, mesh maxi dress with jewel accents and matching elbow-length gloves that she paired with bright red lipstick and black eye makeup. Read ahead to see more photos of Cyrus on the red carpet.
