in 9D I think the by=at around(hiding)
The one I can't parse is 15D lost=l?
Thanks Ixion, that was the best I could do for 9D but I feel by is only at in the North of England - am I right? I'm a soft Southerner, so it doesn't mean that to me at all. And I still feel 'hiding' is in the wrong place.
Yeah, I just assumed the 'l' was for lost - no idea why.
And I assumed it was the footballer rather than the fashion designer but why, from the clue? No idea except h(ot) + soup gives you posh + u but where does that leave you? Leaves me nowhere.
Oddly unsatisfying, this one. Wish I hadn't got up in the middle of the night to look at it now.
