Is there a more beautifully British word than 'snogging'? It's so redolent of tongues and teenage kicks.
Which is why we are delighted to read - on twitter of course - that Pippa Middleton has been spotted not just 'snogging' but 'aggressively' snogging her new boyfriend Nico Jackson in bar in a Swiss ski resort.
Mike Goldstein tweeted: “Pippa Middleton snogging her boyf aggressively next to me at the bar.”
And chalet firm Mountain Exposure posted: “Pippa Middleton wandering round Zermatt. Let’s hope she’s enjoying the snow!”
Nico was the man whom Pippa was photographed with on the Caribbean island of Mustique with William, Kate and her family.
Nico's dad owns a ski shop in Folkestone, Kent.
This news anyway explains why she wasn't at the Issa show.
Sixty years and hardly a slip.
