A selection of headlines from stories in the news. They use English in a way that you might think is intended to confuse but it’s all perfectly clear to the native speaker.

‘The Ender Peggy’ is a headline in the Daily Star newspaper about the news that the cockney actress Barbara Windsor is to quit her role of Queen Vic’s pub landlady, Peggy, after 15 years in the popular BBC TV soap EastEnders.  The 72 year old actress says she wants to spend more time with her 46 year old husband Scott. The headline is a play on the phrase ‘ the end of Peggy.’
