Figures released by airport governing body AENA show that the most-used carrier this year across all of Spain's terminals was Ryanair; by a considerable margin. So it comes as a surprise that the low-cost airline is considering closing its bases in Tenerife South, Las Palmas and the Costa Brava. Some of the redundancies are said to be due to the likelihood of air connections between the UK and Republic of Ireland, the firm’s most heavily-frequented route, being affected if a no-deal Brexit prospers on October 31.

JAMIE OLIVER: THE NAKED CHEF BARES ALL
on Wednesday on Channel4 at 9pm
It's been 20 years since Jamie Oliver exploded onto our screens and into our homes with The Naked Chef and gave culinary culture a radical shake-up. Jamie has changed how we cook and eat over the last two decades, but how have the past 20 years changed him? Presented by Davina McCall, this 60-minute documentary highlights memorable Jamie moments from over the years: his accidental discovery at The River Café, his rise to fame as iconic Brit-pop chef, his restless campaigning to improve the food system, and the more recent closure of his restaurant group. While filming this documentary, Jamie's UK restaurants went into administration. Cameras follow Jamie at work and at home, as he discusses with Davina what went wrong. The programme gets under Jamie's skin, uncovering emotional revelations and personal insights along the way, and showing viewers the true Jamie as never seen before.
