RITA ORA, Michelle Keegan and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have agreed to be upfront when they plug products on Instagram for money – or face court. In an unusual move, the Competition and Markets Authority has named the trio and 13 other celeb “influencers” as having been at risk of breaking the law if they did not make changes to their posting habits. The stars will now make it clear on posts when they have been paid or received gifts or loans of products from brands in return for endorsing goods or services. Not sticking to the pledge could lead to court action — where they could end up with a fine or even a two-year prison term. The names emerged yesterday after the regulator launched a probe last year to see “whether influencers were clearly disclosing paid-for endorsements”. Undisclosed ads are illegal.

Spy chief Oleg Martyanov ran an elite technology department developing military robots, bullet-proof uniforms and undetectable poisons. He has now disappeared amid claims his experts produced the Novichok perfume bottle used to poison double agent Sergei Skripal, 67, and his 34-year-old daughter Yulia. Martyanov, 58, fought in Afghanistan like ex-paratrooper Skripal, and was outraged at the betrayal by his former brother-in-arms decades later. He had risen to become commander of Russia’s sinister Special Operations Forces when agents attempted to kill traitor Skripal. But he quit suddenly in October, days after the two Salisbury assassins were unmasked as elite agents from Russia’s GRU foreign intelligence service — and has not been seen since. Aftermath of mysterious helicopter crash that killed … [Read more...] about Russian spy chief and answer to 007 gadget whizz ‘Q’ vanishes amid suspicions Novichok guru masterminded the Salisbury attack
