Bond. Jane Bond. It's time for a new 007. After Daniel Craig reportedly left the franchise, the world felt a distinctively large, sexy man-shaped hole in the film industry. That hole should be reshaped. A fan created a poster for Gillian Anderson as the new 007, which she later tweeted with this response: It's Bond. Jane Bond. Thanks for all the votes!

  After a recent round trip into the murky world of dating, I’ve arrived back with an assortment of souvenirs such as a mildly wounded pride (from the guy who implied I was fatter in real life than my photos online indicated), an empty purse (from all the drinking I had to do to get me through the bad dates) and an acceptance that I'm much better off single.Of course, like on every good trip, I definitely learnt some new things about the world around us. Like any night spent in a hostel dorm room, you’ll meet some pretty cool people with interesting life stories.

Simone is in her early twenties and looks like any other university student. She's pretty, but in ripped skinny jeans and trainers, you'd never guess what she did for a living. Simone works for a high-class escort agency in Europe, making more money in one night than most students will earn in a month.
