    Prince Harry reveals ‘biggest struggle’ after Princess Diana’s death in documentary

    Oh, how about some empathy? I don’t for a moment condone Harry and Megan’s behaviour in recent years, but I and my two younger brothers were left bereft when our mother died when we were 16, 14 and 8 and our father three years later, and I can tell you how that experience affects your life...

    Your Android phone could be at risk: This malware can unlock your device and wipe out your bank account overnight!

    This is scary! I use my phone as a tool, not a toy. I use it for calls, texts and directions and that’s about it. I don’t have banking or email on my phone. Still, if tech-savvy criminals get access to any of your details, who knows what they could do with it.

    This woman reveals how much she spends at Coles than at the local fruit market

    I did a cost comparison recently - I compared my local greengrocer with WW, taking the prices from their catalogue and buying from the greengrocer’s shop. The difference was less than $2, with WW coming out cheaper. I felt the quality was comparable.

    Discover ALDI’s new service that will revolutionise your shopping experience

    I did online shopping during lockdown and wasn’t a fan. By the time I’ve gone through and selected what I want I could have driven to the shop, picked it up and been home again.
