TALK OF THE TOWN: Wild nights still on offer at Longleat as Emma Weymouth reveals guests can stay in a cottage inside the zebra enclosure

It’s one thing staying at a wildlife park, quite another staying IN an animal enclosure! 

But that’s on offer now at Longleat, where The Marchioness of Bath Emma Weymouth, and husband Ceawlin Thynn, 8th Marquess, have restored three derelict cottages to rent out at the 9,000 acre Wiltshire safari park – one of them in the zebra pen!

Discussing the new cottage, Emma says: ‘Who wants to wake up to zebras outside their bedroom window? Just having breakfast with the zebras! I’ve decided I might move into one of these cottages.’

It’s all part of the couple’s future plans for the estate which they inherited a year ago when Lord Bath passed away, leaving his menagerie and some of his infamous 72 ‘wifelets’ on site.

They stayed at Longleat for several months due to Covid, but have since decided to moved on, I gather. If they want to come back they can always kip with the animals, like the paying guests!

James and Amanda dress for distress… 

They are the stars of Netflix’s new thriller Things Heard And Seen – and I think this picture, right, counts as something I never want to see or hear of again!

It’s James Norton and Amanda Seyfried cross-dressing behind the scenes of their poorly reviewed film in which they play a husband and wife whose marriage has ‘a sinister darkness that rivals their new home’s history’.

It’s quite the departure for Amanda who made her name as a star in Mean Girls, the 2004 teen comedy in which she was convinced her bosom could ‘predict’ the weather!

Yet another of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s US associates has unhelpfully weighed in on our Royal Family.

American TV pundit Damian Holbrook took to Twitter to offer a ludicrously hostile opinion of The Firm, saying: ‘The royals can eat a bag of d**ks.’ Charming.

His contribution came after Meghan’s former Suits co-star Patrick J Adams described the Duchess as ‘enthusiastic, kind, co-operative, giving, joyful and supportive’. Damian replied ‘Yes!’ before making his vile addition.

He added that his support was based ‘not just from delightful professional interactions but from when she was previously married to my friend’s nephew’.

As part of my series on the chilled-out lives of Prince Harry’s former girlfriends, I have uncovered this never-before-seen gem, above, from the archives of his ex Chelsy Davy, showing her cheerleading!

Chelsy, centre, was snapped with her ‘squad’ of girlfriends ringing in the 2018 new year at a party in South Africa, just as Harry and Meghan were wedding planning. I wonder if the Americana uniforms were a nod to Harry’s fiancee at the time?

I gather Chelsy, 35, is relishing her freedom, having hung up her party shoes for a quieter and healthier lifestyle.

But she is still looking for love. ‘She never seems to find men who are good enough for her,’ says one pal. 

Chelsy was at Leeds University back in the day and was often joined for weekend raves by then-boyfriend Harry. 

In the end they split up because she – unlike Meghan – decided early that she didn’t want the Royal life.
