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 Sun had a right Royal laugh with the headline ‘Camilla is Vera Duch-worth’:  Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was visiting the set of long running ITV soap opera Coronation Street as part if its 50th anniversary celebrations. The headline is a play on Vera Duckworth, a character who for many years ran the fictional Rovers Return pub on Coronation Street.
