People are just realising why Wetherspoons have quirky carpets in each pub
Wetherspoons pubs are usually the go-to for a cheap meal with booze. Often when people go for a drink with their pals, they don't notice much about the decor at the place they're in.And in this case, there's a design feature which many people might not have spotted with Wetherspoons. READ MORE: 'Worst Wetherspoons in UK' has 'cremated food' and is like going 'back into the 1970s' In each pub, there's a carpet design which is unique and there's a reason for it.Speaking previously, Jon Randall, head of property development and acquisitions, said bosses think carefully about their carpets.He said: "We place particular emphasis on the design of our new pubs, investing heavily in every aspect."With more than 900 pubs, that is a lot of carpet."All of our new pub carpets are individually designed, some with details to reflect aspects of the building's history or local area."It is great to see some of our customers, who are obviously loyal fans, taking an active interest with this unusual online collection."Although most of us might not have noticed it, Kit Caless has spent some time compiling a list of as many of their rugs as possible.He set up a blog and asked people to send in their snaps.Kit said: "I read this book, Will Wiles, The Way Inn; in that novel, the main character visits the same hotel chain everywhere he goes."In each hotel, there's a piece of art outside the lift, and he figures out that the art all matches up into one big, massive art piece."He added: "I was reading that book while I was in a Wetherspoon pub in Canterbury."And when I finished it, I just looked down at the carpet and it was really complicated."I wondered whether the carpet matched another Wetherspoon one.

Love Island fans fume over 'embarrassing' clips as Danica exits ITV2 show
Love Island viewers have criticised spin-off show Aftersun for "embarrassing" former contestant Danica Taylor with a rejection montage on the latest episode of the show.During Sunday night’s live show, presenter Laura Whitmore welcomed recently dumped contestants Danica and Jamie to reflect on their time in the villa.But fans were stunned when the pair were shown a compilation of Danica being rejected by the likes of Davide, Jacques, Luca and Andrew, before Jay and Josh, with the clips edited into a spy movie-inspired video called Danica’s Mission Impossible.READ MORE: Love Island's Ekin-Su hailed 'next Maura Higgins' as brands 'line up' for bombshellThe male singletons were labelled as her targets, with the words “fail” stamped across clips of them turning down Danica’s advances.While Danica didn’t appear to be bothered by the clips and laughed along, fans on Twitter jumped to her defence.“Can they not show Danica’s actual best bits ? Like don’t embarrass her with the rejections it’s so unkind,” one commenter wrote.“‘That clip was NOT Danica’s best bits!! Rejection after rejection compilation is not someone’s BEST bits!!!’ blasted a third,” another tweet read, while one Twitter user added: “Not Aftersun bringing up Danica’s interviews.”Another commenter wrote: “Why are all of Danica‘s best bits her being pied off.”“Producers did Danica dirty,” one fan complained, while another remarked: “If I was Danica I would’ve screamed when watching that montage.”Eventually, however, she found a connection with Jamie, and the pair are enjoying continuing their romance on the ‘outside’.Ahead of the footage playing, presenter Laura Whitmore told the former islander: "You were a woman on a bit of a mission, take a look at this."Before
