Congratulations to Next chief executive Lord Wolfson who got married to Kate Middleton lookalike Eleanor Shawcross, an adviser to Chancellor George Osborne, last week.

Held in Whitehall, the happy occasion went well for the couple. Weddings are expensive, inducing a sweat to the brow of every bride-to-be’s dad, but Eleanor’s father, writer William Shawcross, had some help. Wolfson had sold £3.8m of Next shares to help pay for the nuptials and his new home.
