Mail Diary

A cry went up from Mrs Joyce Wilde as she arrived with her singer daughter Kim at the party to celebrate the first night of the revived rock opera Tommy. Jostled in the crush of 1,500 guests trying to get into the bash, she realised one of her earrings had been lost. Mrs Wilde was inconsolable… the pearl earring had been a 30th wedding anniversary present from her husband Marti. But just before the matinee yesterday, a photographer rang the Shaftesbury Theatre to say he was astonished to have found it in his pocket.
