Alleluia! One of the great plot twists – perhaps only rivalled by Harold Bishop returning to Neighbours with amnesia (look it up) – is celebrated the world over today by people smashing umpteen chocolate eggs down their gullets.

Also this week, the cringe-gasm that is corporate April Fools day gags. Volkswagen – a company already known for its complicated relationship with the truth – should perhaps have steered clear of attempted PR lolz.
