‘That’s probably why she’s deaf, from all that chanting she does.’

‘You’ve got some food in your hair. Oh, it’s just truffle mayo.’

‘I’ve only got a two-inch Princess Margaret and I can’t hang her above the kitchen window.’

‘You can be vegan in your next life.’

‘You would not believe how much vomit a Primark bag can hold.’
