Lexis Digest: Farewell Cilla Black, Diet Coke by J.W. Anderson launch party and Cara Delevingne’s awkward interview
In response to Katie Hopkin’s awful reaction, we’ve put together our favourite Cilla Black tributes from across social media so far. The well-loved national treasure, who passed away yesterday whilst in Spain, will be dearly missed by generations of Brits who remember her from her acting, modelling and presenting days.
Celebrity tributes have poured in worldwide including this great blog piece by Brian May: http://www.brianmay.com/brian/brianssb/brianssbaug15a.html#01
Our personal favourite – this touching video of Bruce Forsyth talking about Cilla.

Everyone had a great time at the launch party for the J.W.Anderson and Diet Coke bottles.
Wait a minute, is that Hayley we see with The Saturdays singer Vanessa White?
What we’ve been working on
After unveiling the fashion collaboration between J.W Anderson and Diet Coke, we helped Diet Coke throw a star-studded launch party in Shoreditch on Thursday. Celebs, including Vanessa White and Laura Whitmore, were in attendance to see J.W Anderson unveil the limited-edition designer bottles.
What are we watching?
Supermodel Cara Delevingne has been making headlines with her controversial Good Morning Sacramento interview. The model, who’s been doing the rounds to promote her latest film ‘Paper Towns’, was conducting an interview for the morning show and… well it didn’t go so brilliantly – the interviewers called the model ‘Carla’ and things went downhill.
While some called Cara out for being rude and unenthusiastic, other people jumped to the model’s defence, including John Green, director of ‘Paper Towns’, who took to Medium to defend her.

Did you know Canada had a hitchhiking robot? Neither did we! Unfortunately the robot, who had already toured Canada and Germany, met a not-so-nice end after being destroyed while touring the US. You should have looked after him better, Philadelphia. http://www.theverge.com/2015/8/2/9087171/hitchbot-cross-country-trip-comes-to-unfortunate-end
