Jade Jagger's 14-year-old daughter Assisi prepares to board the London-Paris connection at Waterloo
Also taking the train that day was Sir Bob. The Live 8 organiser is just one of a host of personalities to have travelled on Eurostar since its launch over a decade ago
It may not immediately suggest the same glamour or cachet as a stretch limo, but these days the Eurostar train is a clear favourite with celebs when it comes to Channel hopping.
Kate Moss was famously spotted bickering on board with Pete Doherty recently, while just last weekend Sir Bob Geldof, Lisa B and Jade Jagger, accompanied by her 13-year old daughter Assisi, all used the express service to the French capital.
Over the years the Eurostar, which celebrates its eleventh anniversary next month, has carried a roll-call of celebrities. Other famous faces known to have enjoyed its relaxing first class facilities range from royalty and politicians to Hollywood stars and musicians, including Hugh Grant, Johnny Depp, Paul McCartney and Thierry Henry.
