The Tin Lid

‘TODAY OK! dusts off its trumpet, puckers its collagen–enhanced lips and prepares to do as Marilyn Monroe once instructed and just blow.

Where will they be in ten years from now?

It’s been something of a journey from the first days of OK! when Joan Collins graced the cover of Issue 1 of the weekly edition (from 1993-96 the magazine was monthly) to talk about her “courtroom hell”.

Back in 1996, we thrilled to “Princess Di, James Hewitt And Me”, and wondered if perhaps a thoroughbred pony would add its weight to that menage of flesh.

And we listened attentively while Bob Hoskins talked of fatherhood, Meryl Streep of motherhood, and Mike Reid, then of EastEnders, took us on a tour of his home.

No wonder editor Nic Mc Carthy (as written) sits proudly upright to tells us how happy she and her magazine are and looks forward to another 10 years.

But we cannot be more pleased for them.

Here’s to another ten years of Ulrika’s men, Jacko’s noses, Catherine and Michael’s photos, Posh’s career relaunches, Sarah Ferguson’s weight problems and the many failed marriages and delicious lunches enjoyed by the good, the bad and, thanks to surgery, the not-quite-as-ugly-as-they-once-were.’
