EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Greying hair, the younger wife and now Hugh Grant has the Italian motor

He’s got the greying hair, he’s got the wife two decades his junior — and now Hugh Grant has got the motor.

The foppish actor, 61, was snapped returning from golf in a new sparkling silver £240,000 Ferrari.

Grant, who is married to Swedish sock entrepreneur Anna Eberstein, 41, loves the Italian car brand and recently sold his black convertible Ferrari for £79,950.

It’s certainly a step up from the white BMW convertible he was arrested in after being caught in a compromising position on Sunset Boulevard in 1995.

Four-times married former ITN war correspondent Brent Sadler wrote about the ‘difficulties’ of being a cheating husband in this newspaper earlier this week.

Now, his third wife, Tess Stimson, has revealed that she became so unhealthily obsessed with her appearance that she went on a ‘mirror fast’.

Stimson, 53, says: ‘There’s a reason a woman’s eyesight starts to go when she hits 40; it’s to soften the blow when she looks in the mirror.

‘So I decided to do a “mirror fast” and give up mirrors for a week.’

But did it work?

The author of The Adultery Club and One Good Affair says: ‘I’m not looking in the mirror nearly as much, but it’s nice to be able to put lipstick on properly again.’

Some women feel a million dollars in a slinky dress and pair of heels. For Marcella star Anna Friel, it’s a denim jumpsuit.

The 45-year-old actress has posed for what she calls a ‘shameless mini photo shoot’ in her trailer while filming a new television drama in America.

Friel has Farah Fawcett-inspired hair for the drama, Monarch, in which she’s the daughter of a country music star played by Hollywood star Susan Sarandon.

Leaning on a studio chair emblazoned with her name, she says: ‘Anyone feeling they wanna little kick in their step, grab a onesie/catsuit. Did for me.’

Dellal breaks in her latest shoes

The shoe designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal, whose designs have been worn by everyone from the Duchess of Sussex to pop star Taylor Swift, is used to setting trends.

Her latest look, though, might struggle to catch on.

‘Pretty in pink with Gigi,’ she says. Talk about putting your best foot forward . . .

  • Elizabeth McGovern, who plays Cora, Countess of Grantham, in Downton Abbey, is also a musician and complains that her ill-mannered audiences talk or sing ‘all the way through’ her performances.
