Actor Emilia Fox is interviewed in the Times today, not to talk about her sterling work in BBC1’s Silent Witness but to talk … butterflies. No, not the BBC sitcom classic either, but Butterfly World in St Albans. “When I married in 2005 we released rare butterflies at our wedding,” she tells the paper. She’s less keen on spiders, though. “In Australia a flying spider landed on the windscreen of the car I was in and I threw myself out because It thought it was inside.”

The fish are considered more rare than the giant panda or tiger but are still served as a delicacy in sushi restaurants.
However, following a long-running campaign, it is expected to become illegal to sell Atlantic bluefin tuna between different countries.
The ruling will effectively stop a multi-billion pound industry and prevent restaurants serving the delicacy.
In the past celebrity restaurants such as Nobu, where Leonardo DiCaprio and Madonna dined, served the expensive dish.
But the population has plummeted in the past 50 years with fears it could die out altogether.
Supermarket chain Tesco yesterday unveiled a range of designer dresses made from recycled fabric.
The collection of six dresses for F&F was designed by eco fashion label From Somewhere, and uses discarded pre-consumer textile waste such as off-cuts and remnants which would otherwise be burned or buried in landfill sites.
The designs, available in sizes eight to 18 and starting at £16, feature the label’s well-known figure-hugging styles. From Somewhere fans include Peaches Geldof, actress Emilia Fox and presenter Lauren Laverne.
Label founder and designer Orsola de Castro said: “It is a way of managing waste in a creative way, rather than pretending the problem doesn’t exist.”
The dresses were launched exclusively online at www.tesco.com/clothing.
