    Could Prince Andrew Go To Jail?

    Could Prince Andrew Go To Jail?

    Prince Andrew has escaped further investigation from the UK's Metropolitan Police over the allegations raised in Virginia Giuffre's sexual assault lawsuit, in which she claims he forced her to have sex with him on multiple occasions while she was underage.

    But that doesn't mean the legal battle is over for the Queen's favourite child, as he has until October 29 to formally respond to the lawsuit, and could face serious consequences if found guilty.

    The Quicky speaks to a Royal expert to find out what his potential punishment could be, and what is happening to Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman accused of grooming young girls for billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his high-ranking friends.

    Australia Is Reopening, So Where Should I Go?

    Australia Is Reopening, So Where Should I Go?

    NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet made a shock announcement on Friday that NSW will abolish all quarantine for people who are double vaccinated from November 1, in addition to the Federal Government's messaging that Australia will finally re-open to the world next month.

    But not everyone looks set to be jetting off as many domestic borders remain closed.

    The Quicky speaks to a travel expert to find out for those who can take to the skies, where the safest destinations are in the world, and which ones are already proving most popular as we feel increasingly secure in booking new travel arrangements.

    Gwyneth Is Now Selling Libido Boosters, But Do They Work?

    Gwyneth Is Now Selling Libido Boosters, But Do They Work?

    Goop, the lifestyle website founded by actor-turned-wellness-guru Gwyneth Paltrow sells all sorts of weird products supposedly designed to help women improve their sex lives, and their latest is 'DTF' aka Down To F*ck, a libido booster that comes in the form of pills.

    But do these kinds of products - which includes things we can find in the supermarket like Horny Goat Weed - really work and if so, how?

    The Quicky speaks to an expert in sexual health to sort the facts from the sell, and find out if we are experiencing problems with our libido whether we should self-medicate, or be speaking with a doctor about what's going on in our minds, as well as our bodies.

    The Demise Of The Office & The Things Worth Saving

    The Demise Of The Office & The Things Worth Saving

    As many of us start to return to work in the office as restrictions ease, it seems unlikely for a lot of businesses that we will ever fully go back to the traditional 9 to 5 work day, but does that mean we should ditch every aspect of office life?

    The Quicky speaks to a productivity expert to consider whether there are some elements of the daily commute and grind that are in fact worth keeping, even if a hybrid of working from home and the office becomes the new normal.
