Newspaper Mogul Takes Well-Earned Break

by our Society Editor R Slicker

Thanet media mogul and celebrity superstar Richard Eastcliff was spotted sunning himself in the south of France this week, taking a well-deserved break from his hectic, showbiz life.

Our moles spied Mr Eastcliff, 36, one of the most talented and successful businessmen the world has ever seen, indulging in a spot of R&R on the Croisette in Cannes. Looking fit and relaxed, the philanthropic superstar was enjoying a gin and tonic while chatting to Sir Bob Geldoff, no doubt as a prelude to establishing a substantial charitable trust to benefit the poor of Thanet and beyond, including his own deserving children by four wives.

Mr Eastcliff is 29.
