Confectionery heir Orson Fry 'splits from Alexa Chung'

Confectionery heir Orson Fry 'splits from Alexa Chung'

EMILY PRESCOTT: Confectionery heir Orson Fry sings the blues at Glastonbury after ‘split from Alexa Chung’

She rarely misses a Glastonbury, and model Alexa Chung was back at Worthy Farm this weekend, turning heads in vintage Barbour jacket and hardy lace-up boots.

But when Orson Fry, the confectionery heir she started dating in 2019, took to one of the festival’s smaller stages on Friday night, she was notable by her absence.

That’s because, I am told, the pair have gone their separate ways.

Orson, 25, might even have dropped a hint about a break-up as he introduced one track by saying: ‘This next song is called Ways Of A Woman – not that we’d know.’

While I didn’t spot Alexa, 38, in the sparse audience for Orson’s band Some People, another model, Tigerlily Taylor, the daughter of Queen drummer Roger Taylor was there – but left halfway through.

Alexa started dating the scion of the Fry chocolate dynasty in 2019, shortly after splitting from Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard. Orson was working part-time as a waiter when he was introduced to Alexa through mutual friends.

The photogenic pair were first snapped together at London festival All Points East in 2019.

A public display of affection in front of the cameras announced their romance.

Until recently, Alexa was a familiar presence at Orson’s gigs around the capital, and the two were once spotted sipping cocktails with ex-Oasis star Noel Gallagher, who’s also at Glastonbury this weekend.

Alexa was scouted as a model aged 16, and later shot to fame as a presenter of Channel 4’s Popworld.

She has been the face of DKNY Jeans and Lacoste, and launched her own fashion label in 2017, but it collapsed earlier this year after suffering £11 million losses.

Crush of the week: Rosie Tapner

She may have turned heads with her Royal Ascot outfits, but racing presenter Rosie Tapner tells me that her main style concern is protecting herself from the elements.

‘I will always wear bright pink running shorts under any of my outfits because it is windy on race days,’ she told me at the launch of the restaurant Core on Course by Clare Smyth.

And she has learned by experience: her skirt once flew up at Cheltenham as she was making cocktails in the posh Orchard enclosure.

Rosie might have regretted her signature undergarments last week with the searing temperatures at Ascot, but she says men fared worse. 

Rugby royalty Mike Tindall told her he was jealous of her attire as he sweated away in his formal suit.

My lips are sealed, but…

Which A-list thespian has such a relaxed attitude to the tiresome process of learning lines that writers on a major period drama had to make last-minute script changes to work around the problem?
