Jamie Cullen can't lift his wife Sophie Dahl's spirits


Is it that awful, Dahl, Sophie … or are you grumpy with Cullum? Even jazz star Jamie cannot lift his wife's spirits

He has sold millions of records, won a number of awards and entertained countless fans with his dazzling jazz pop.

But lightening his wife's spirits did not seem to be in Jamie Cullum's repertoire – at least if these series of images have something to offer.

Model Sophie Dahl, who was photographed in a restaurant, first shows a brief flash of her pearly white as she rests her face on her hand.

But the smile gives way to a sullen look before she looks decidedly depressed.

The cheap decorations hanging on a plastic Christmas tree may not have helped her mood when she was sitting at a table with the jazz star. Even a large glass of gin and tonic couldn't cheer her up.

But appearances can be deceiving. For starters, December 25th didn't come early for the couple – instead, they attended a photo shoot for a festive campaign at a restaurant last week.

43-year-old Miss Dahl made a series of poses for a camera crew that were shooting in front of Odette's restaurant in the famous Primrose Hill hangout in north London.

Spectators couldn't help but take a look after seeing the crowd of production workers on the street outside. It's a mystery what campaign Miss Dahl shot with 41-year-old jazz star Cullum – known to be seven inches shorter than his 5ft 11in wife. Marks & Spencer denied the couple was involved in their celebratory publicity, while sources at John Lewis said the same thing.

Miss Dahl, who has two daughters, Lyra, nine- and seven-year-old Margot, with Cullum, has made a career in the grocery business after taking a step back from modeling.

Children's author Roald Dahl's granddaughter was the editor of Waitrose Food Magazine and wrote a cookbook, Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights.
