Mr & Mrs Smith threw their second annual Smith Hotel Awards last week at Bankside Vaults. Everyone had fun, especially when Norman Jay (MBE) of Good Times arrived to DJ.

Here are a few of the nice people there, from superbly coiffed hoteliers like Piero Zolin of Uxua Casa in Brazil to Sue Perkins off Bake Off (who everyone was very excited to see).

I’ve been shooting in Morocco. I’m back in London now.

We were in Essaouira (see above), then Marrakech, then the Atlas Mountains, staying at Dar Maya, Jardin des Douars, Dar Zemora, La Mamounia, El Fenn and Kasbah Tamadot, and enjoying some intriguing soft-rock mix CDs on the drives in between. We ate a lot of delicious food and swam in some stupendous pools. There were horses, mules, camels, turtles, tortoises, cats, dogs, cows, sheep, goat and very loud frogs. There will be pictures.
