We’re very pleased to bring you the celebrity ambush of the year (though who’s zooming whom, you may ask) – Callum Lumsden’s Dennis Pennis-style encounter with design’s My Little Pony himself, monsignor Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen.

Not only does LLB look as if he’s been at the China White party pack, but Lumsden proves himself an uncanny impersonator of Keith Allen. The vindaloo’s on us, mate. Maximum respect.
