In Friday’s Daily Mail, the rather wonderful Ephraim Hardcastle introduced Axegrinder to an entirely new concept: the former ex-girlfriend.
Ephraim asked: “Who are the women prancing behind Michael Winner in the new TV ads for esure? They’re Vanessa Perry and Lorraine Doyle, former ex-girlfriends of the boulevardier.”
So does the phrase “former ex-girlfriends” mean they have both now rekindled their passion for the Death Wish director?
Or does the “former” refer to their gender? No, it can’t be that.
Perhaps Ephraim will explain all in his next column.
