It's embarrassing enough having your financials splashed across the papers, but spare a thought for poor Sir Stuart Rose (okay, that's enough).

This week he fell victim to a kiss-and-tell story (of sorts) from sometime love-interest Kate Reardon. Her sex book - Top Tips for Girls - was all the excuse The Sun needed to unleash the "marks and sparks in the bedroom" and "dining in for £10" innuendos.

But as for the headline - 'This isn't just M&S, it's S&M'... you can only admire master-craftsmen at work.
