EMILY PRESCOTT: How confectionery heir Cosmo Fry and his son Orson once fought to save their holiday home in the south of France in a game of dice

I’m not saying the Fry family are reckless when it comes to betting, but the head of the confectionery dynasty Cosmo and his son Orson once fought to save their vacation home in the south of France in a game of dice. .

Cosmo, who brought Perudo’s ancient Perudo dice game to England in 1982, offered the house as the prize when they both faced a complete novice – who quickly won three games and knocked Cosmo out of the contest.

Kate, 39, and her entrepreneur boyfriend Paul Forkan, 32, who welcomed a baby boy last year, have revived plans to create a play area, TV and media room, home office and study at their Edwardian property in leafy Barnes.

Neighbors also say Kate failed to improve on the initial application, which was rejected last year.

Planners are expected to make a decision next month.

He may be a multi-millionaire, but Live Aid organizer Bob Geldof is always pretty down-to-earth when it comes to vacations.

But at least the legend offered himself a quick boarding…
