This year it feels like we've been speaking an entirely new language; the vocabulary of our day-to-day would have been unrecognisable last summer. Familiar words and phrases have shifted: distance, cocoon, household, indoors; and we've had to make up some new ones to fit the moment: quar', covidiot, doomscrolling.

And we've had to call 'himbo' out of its 1980s retirement. Lockdown pushed the he-bimbos out of the gym and on to the internet, into our hearts: this is to be the summer of the himbo, the golden age of big, dim, lovely boys.
