Prosecco is top blackout juice

EVERYBODY is getting wasted on Prosecco this year, supermarkets have confirmed.

Traditionally consumed by Italians as a springtime aperitif, the sparkling wine has become the fast track to lightly sparkling oblivion for millions of UK drinkers.

Wine expert Francesca Johnson said: “Prosecco is great for when the sun’s out and you want to get wrecked in the day without feeling like a tramp.

“You can have six or ten glasses in a session because it’s a light fun drink.

“Sometimes my friends and I laugh so much that we feel dizzy and vomit down our fronts.”

Joanna Kramer of Brighton said: “The bubbles get you drunker, especially if you neck it fast, and after three bottles I was already finding myself places with no clear idea of how I got there.

“Perhaps it makes you teleport.”

Prosecco fan Stephen Malley said: “I woke up this morning in the garden, a four-inch cut on my forearm from where I punched the glass of the back door out trying and failing to get in the house.

“I chuckled to myself and said ‘Oh, that cheeky Prosecco’.”

Prince George shoots his first butterfly

PRINCE George has been introduced to the world of country sports by shooting a butterfly.

The Prince was given a tiny antique shotgun, originally owned by Edward VII, and a selection of brightly coloured cartridges from Mayfair gunsmith Goebbels and Hock.

With the help of his father he then took aim at a live butterfly that had been stapled to a fence post.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “He missed twice – it was adorable – but on the third attempt the butterfly disintegrated, much to everyone’s delight.”
