It’s a good time to be glued to your phone. The flame-haired and ever so stylish and wonderful Grace Coddington has joined Instagram, although she did first get banned for her pains. Her inaugural post was an illustrated nude ‘selfie’ which the Instagram powers-that-be removed and then revoked her account over. All is well now though – both the account and photo have been restored, much to the relief of Grace’s 24,000 followers.

Instagram explained themselves thusly: “When our team processes reports from other members of the Instagram community, we occasionally make a mistake. In this case, we wrongly removed content and worked to rectify the error as soon as we were notified. We apologize for any convenience."

And in reply, Grace posted hopefully the first of many cat illustrations, captioned: "Good grief Pumpkin, Mother drew a nude selfie for her very first Instagram. no wonder they shut her down......she is much fatter than that".

Welcome to Instagram, Grace. Good to have you with us.
