Sienna Miller has enjoyed an emotional reunion with her ailing father.
The Hollywood star, 41, joined her sister, bridal wear designer Savannah, 44, in New York, where they huddled round their father, art dealer Edwin Miller, with his sons, Stephen and Charles, from a previous relationship.
‘For the first time in six years, we’re all together with our dad,’ Savannah says.
‘A lot has changed in that time, with his declining health, but at the same time nothing at all. Love feels the same, as deep and true as it ever did. We may be oceans apart but our love for each other and our papa transcends it all.’

Norton’s £3million payday
Gary Lineker might be named as the BBC’s highest-paid presenter, on a salary of £1.35 million, but there’s one who earns far more.
Chat-show host Graham Norton’s name doesn’t appear on the annual rich list because he’s paid via his production company, So Television.

Although known as the Sport of Kings, horse racing is said to hold little appeal for King Charles. However, Queen Elizabeth’s trainer Nicky Henderson says her son will keep up the royal tradition.
‘I don’t think the King is as passionate about horses as the Queen was,’ he tells me at the Randox Grand National.
‘But he is interested in the studs and the breedings.’ He adds: ‘The flat season is around the corner and they have some very exciting prospects.’
Bill Nighy’s refusal to watch himself on screen led to a confrontation with one of the makers of the films in which he’s starred.
‘One director actually phoned me and said, “Grow up, this is ridiculous”,’ says Nighy, 73, who was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in Living.
Speaking at the Fulham Road Picturehouse in London, he tells me of the unnamed director.
‘He sent a courier with a DVD of the film we made.
‘He handed me the delivery and I threw it on the side and waited for two-and-a-half hours and I phoned him up and said it was incredible. He said, “It wasn’t so bad, was it?” ‘

‘I’m exhausted,’ wails the former England cricketer, who became a TV regular, appearing on shows such as Strictly and winning I’m A Celebrity.
‘After I get off here, I’ve got a dark wash to put on, I’ve got to make the dinner, haven’t even thought about ironing or dusting yet.’
Speaking on the White Wine Question Time podcast, Tuffers, 56, adds: ‘Dawn’s had a tough four or five weeks. I’m absolutely shattered — I’ve been up and down. I got her a bell — that was a mistake.’
