    You could probably knock someone out with an ostrich egg.

    Or you could head on down to your local Waitrose, bag one, and feed a whole family with it.

    That’s because one ostrich egg is the equivalent of 24 chicken eggs. So forget about lugging around a dozen or two hen eggs, pick up an ostrich one and have the most bougie brunch imaginable.

    Britain’s poshest supermarket clearly knows its audience and is using the season to flog 2kg eggs, each for a tidy sum of £19.99

    On second thoughts, maybe just go back to the chicken ones.

    A pregnant mother had her baby’s gender revealed to her and the rest of the restaurant by a chef who laid pink and blue clues throughout her dinner.

    Haifa and Mike Varju, from Banbury, Oxfordshire, already had two young boys and wanted to know if they were due a third.

    So 35-year-old Haifa got in touch with Knife and Fork, a local restaurant that she had wanted to eat at for two years, and asked if they could create a special gender-reveal menu.

    Owner and chef Tanya Young claims she was left ‘tearful’ upon realising she was the only person in the world – barring the ultrasound technician – who… Read the full story

    Two sisters have become millionaires after selling makeup brushes to Hollywood movie companies.

    Sophie Pycroft, 30, and sister Hannah, 28, started making makeup brushes in their garage, turning it into a business, Spectrum Collections, which is now worth £12 million.

    The sisters have signed a deal with Disney to produce a collection of colourful brushes based on The Little Mermaid.

    Alongside this, the women also have a similar deal with Paramount with a Mean Girls range.

    Hannah said: ‘It is an incredible honour to be working with a global brand so rich in heritage.

    A chauffeur got so fed up of driving luxury vehicles that he decided to buy himself a £200 car and cover it in fur.

    Justin Scrutton, the owner of a chauffeur company, bought the wrecked old Volkswagen Golf because he fancied driving something that he didn’t mind if his two dogs ruined.

    But the 46-year-old decided to go one step further and spent £180 covering the ancient Golf in ten metres of teddy-bear fabric.

    A peacock keeps walking into people’s gardens because he’s looking for a mate.

    Lovelorn bird Bertie, an all-white peacock, is often mistaken for a ghost as he wanders the village while on the hunt for a girlfriend.

    Every year during peacock mating season, Bertie makes the mile-long walk from his home to a neighbouring village – where he goes from house-to-house to find his love.

    Last year Rose Botting, 55, had her first encounter with Bertie when he caused a week of havoc blocking roads, hopping onto rooftops and startling locals.

    Exactly a year later, Bertie flew away from home again and is once more terrorising villagers – by sitting on their… Read the full story

    Quddus - fasting feature for Faima.
    (Picture: Alexander Crawley/Metro.co.uk))

    Muslims Who Fast is our mini-series looking at the rituals, traditions, and lives of Muslims observing Ramadan.

    During the month-long period, Muslims abstain from food, drinking, smoking, sex, and other things that may be considered vices such as swearing and listening to music.

    Earlier we spoke to Lina who celebrated, and is adjusting to, her first Ramadan as a vegan.

    Quddus, a religious leader, or imam, in the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, speaks to Metro.co.uk this week about Ramadan and iftars with his family.

    Here’s what Quddus and his family ate for iftar, the meal that breaks the fast:

    There are many reasons we’d love to go to Japan.

    The food. The cherry blossom. The hot springs.

    But now we have a reason to put one particular hotel at the top of that list: An inn in Yugawara offers guests the option of renting a cat for their stay.

    Here’s how it works. You book a stay in the hotel, then before you head to your room you visit the hotel’s cat cafe. There, you meet plenty of cats and see if you form a connection with any of the kitties. If you do, you can pick that cat to be your buddy during your stay.

    Vintage bride
    Your wedding day should reflect your ethical beliefs (Picture: Getty)

    The next generation, the millennials and Gen Z’s, are demanding that businesses become more diverse and ethical in order to earn their trust and therefore their loyalty.

    These real-life proposal stories prove that any proposal can be perfect

    This is in all sectors, from fashion to catering, so it makes sense that when it comes to their wedding, they want a day that reflects their values.

    But so many wedding businesses are yet to embrace this change, leaving couples asking questions before booking due to a lack of transparency on their marketing and… Read the full story

    **ILLUSTRATION REQUEST** Reasons why I don’t like receiving oral sex (Almara Abgarian)
    (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Searching for an orgasm? You’ll need to sniff it out like a little truffle hog. Sexy.

    According to research, women with a better sense of smell tend to have much better sex – likely because they’re more able to smell all those sexy sex scents such as vaginal fluids, sperm, and sweat.

    A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour gathered 70 participants, – 42 women and 28 men all deemed young and healthy – blindfolded them, then rated their ability to smell based on their identification of differently scented ‘sniffin’ sticks’.

    The participants were then… Read the full story

    Picture: E6PR Six pack rings that feed turtles rather than killing them
    (Picture: E6PR)

    In the fight to make the world a better place for creatures great and small, the plastic rings that hold six packs of cans together have been a key battle point.

    We know that those rings can cause serious harm to marine life, injuring turtles, suffocating dolphins, and entangling birds.

    But the majority of brands have done sod all to remedy the problem, instead relying on customers to take the time to snip up the plastic rings before chucking them away.

    One brewery has come up with an alternative solution.

    ILLUSTRATION REQUEST: How my depression has tested my friendships (Lucy Dimbylow)
    There’s a sense of guilt in telling a friend you’re not feeling well (Picture: Liberty Antonia Sadler for Metro.co.uk)

    I’m not an easy person to be friends with.

    I say that without even a smidgen of self-pity. It’s the truth.

    In my head, I know the sort of friend I want to be: warm, reliable, loyal, dependable, good company.

    But, in reality, I’m none of those things.

    In fact, it’s a mystery to me that I have any friends left at all, let alone such good ones.

    Frankly, they all deserve a medal.

    My mental health issues have put untold strain on my friendships.

    If you want kids, or you’re trying for kids, chances are you’ve thought about what flavour you’d like them to be. 

    Personally I would like them to be extremely attractive so I can make a fortune from putting them in catalogues and talented enough that I can live my dream of being a stage mum.

    But, back to the point, most of us have a c’est la vie attitude towards gender, but if you’ve had oodles of boys already, or you’ve always dreamed of having a daughter, you might be hoping for a girl.

    Is it possible to make that happen?

    Tummies bloat and change size - get used to it

    I’m midway through getting a massage* when all my worst body-related fears are realised.

    *This isn’t a regular occurrence, to be clear. I’m not fancy enough to spend money fixing my sore shoulder.

    The masseuse asks me to turn over, looks at my stomach, and stalls.

    ‘Are you pregnant?’

    When I hastily assure her that no, I’m not pregnant, and wonder why she only asks after she’s pummeled my back, she apologises: ‘Sorry, I had to ask! It’s just you look…’

    What it feels like to confront a traumatic memory if you have PTSD (Imi) Picture: Ph?be Lou Morson Phebe
    (Picture: Phébe Lou Morson)

    Preoccupations with diet and nutrition are turning Britain into a nation of nutrichondriacs, according to a new study.

    Findings released by a leading wellness genetics company, DNAFit, show that almost half of British adults believe they have a food intolerance, despite only 15% having medical confirmation of this.

    The DNAFit study defines nutrochondria as a ‘pre-occupation with negative details of one’s diet and a propensity to self-diagnose food intolerances or allergies based on supposition or flawed evidence’.

    One in three adults (32%) stated that they are lactose intolerant, while one in… Read the full story

    However, we’re now super excited to tell you that it’s made its way over to the UK.

    The limited edition Baileys creation is hitting UK shelves in June – however it’s only going to be around for a short time, so you’ll need to get your hands on it as soon as it’s out.

    Strawberries and Cream Baileys is described as having blended the ‘fresh, sumptuous taste of strawberries with light and creamy vanilla, together with the luxurious taste of Baileys Original… Read the full story

    double standards of objectification
    Pictures: PA

    Aidan Turner has done the shirtless thing again. 

    You know the one, where he’s photographed without a shirt on, the photo apparently makes women start burning their knickers (though I’ve not actually seen any evidence of this) and we all have to talk about the double standard of objectification.

    Or rather, straight cis men who’ve spent their lives never having to feel worried about being sexually assaulted or being passed over for promotion because their bodies are ‘too tempting’ throw tantrums about how unfair their lives are.

    ‘Women are allowed to talk about how attractive that Poldark is’ complains a certain type of man. ‘But I’d be in… Read the full story

    What men think about to stop themselves coming
    (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Usually reaching orgasm is considered a very good thing.

    But sometimes it happens a little sooner than you’d prefer, either out of a penchant for delayed gratification or a worry that you’re not lasting long enough.

    In those moments there’s the scramble to delay, delay, delay. What do you do to stop the speeding train? What do you think of to slow things down without making sex come to sudden halt?

    According to research by ZavaMed, the majority of men change positions, hit pause, or masturbate pre-sex to make romantic entanglings last longer.

    But just after those techniques comes… Read the full story

    Bright Sky could change the lives of domestic abuse victims all over the UK.

    In Britain, one woman in four will experience domestic violence at some point in her lifetime. Two woman a week are killed by a current or former partner. Men can also be victims of domestic violence, although in significantly smaller numbers than their female counterparts.

    Abuse in a domestic setting, whether physical or emotional, is happening every single day, all over the country.

    London-based domestic violence charity Hestia has been providing support for women and children in crisis for nearly 40 years. In partnership with the Vodafone Foundation, Hestia has launched the Bright… Read the full story

    (Picture: SWNS/RSPCA)

    An adorable deer found itself stuck between some railings after getting half of its body trapped.

    The RSPCA were called out to rescue the deer, which had found itself lodged in between some railings behind an apartment block.

    The deer was believed to have been trying to get to some woodlands around the back of the apartments in Sheffield, before getting itself stuck.

    Luckily, the little thing was freed by the RSPCA, and happily ran off into the woodland without any trauma.

    He was released by RSPCA inspector Kristy Ludlam on 28 May.

    She said: ‘This poor deer obviously thought he could get… Read the full story
