Katie Price and Jamie ‘Afro’ Archer?

PA PhotosIt seems that Katie Price is enjoying being newly single, and is taking full advantage of it.

On a night out at top London club Mahiki, it has been reported in The Sun that the glamour model and I’m A Celebrity contestant made a beeline for ex-X Factor contestant Jamie Archer, where they drank together and ‘flirted’.

The rumours come less than two weeks after Katie publicly dumped her cage-fighter boyfriend Alex Reid, after she quit the I’m A Celeb jungle. It’s also slightly shocking to see rocker Jamie knocking back the booze with another woman, after he had allegedly been seeing Coco Lloyd from X Factor girl group, Kandy Rain.

Maybe they’re just friends, or maybe it’s something more? Stay tuned folks.

Tiger Woods admits “transgressions”

Golfer Tiger Woods has confessed to “personal sins” and publicly apologised to his wife after three women came forwarding claiming to have slept with the father of two.Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren (PA)

“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” Tiger wrote on his website. “I have not been true to my values and the behaviour my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect.

“Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions,” he continued. “I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.”

The series of events that led to Tiger’s admission began when his car hit a tree outside the couple’s Florida home on November 30. Suspicions arose when the world number one refused to talk to police about the accident, cancelling three planned meetings. Reports speculated that the golfer’s facial injuries weren’t sustained by the crash, but by a fight with wife Elin Nordegren, who had become enraged when it was reported Tiger was having an affair.

Since then, several women have gone public with accounts of affairs with the world number one.

John and Edward get a makeover

It seems that John and Edward (more commonly referred to as Jedward) have grown up! 

Thanks to Grazia magazine, the 18-year-old ex-X Factor contestants have been treated to a makeover. Gone are the huge quiffs and suit/hi-top trainer combinations that we usually see them with. Instead, they have a sleek new image, complete with side partings, tailored suits and sunglasses. LEE STRICKLAND/GRAZIA MAGAZINE

In the space of weeks, Jedward have morphed from unknown, slightly off-key wannabes to international pop icons with fans ranging from David Cameron, Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Lott and Henry Holland, to Will Young and Agyness Deyn.

The boys are preparing their next move with speculation they’ll do everything from appearing in the next 118 advert to becoming the new Ant and Dec. They’re certainly in demand – last week, they had to charter a private helicopter to enable them to make all their public appearances around the UK.

"We love fashion," says Edward. "We don’t really wear specific designers as we can’t afford them. But when we were on the show it was more about us having a slick solid image that had impact rather than a label. We hardly ever wore T-shirts – only shirts with ties."

The boys are styled by Britain’s most influential male stylists Mark Anthony, Frank Strachan and Tom Stubbs in this week’s issue, on sale now.


What do you think of their new image? Hot, or not?

Susan Boyle breaks record

8078235The unlikely star of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, Susan Boyle, has smashed all previous first-week debut album sales with her first release.

The Scottish singer who has fans everywhere from the UK to America has sold 410,000 copies of I Dreamed A Dream, her debut effort, in the first week. Not only that, but she beat the likes of Queen, Black Eyed Peas and JLS to the top of the charts.

The 48-year-old singing sensation’s first single is a cover of Rolling Stone’s hit Wild Horses, and reached number 9 in the charts last week.

Simon Cowell, the man responsible for her discovery, has said of her success: "I’m incredibly proud of Susan as well as being delighted for her. The success could not not have happened to a lovelier person. She did it her way and made a dream come true.”

Well done SuBo!

Robbie Williams: did he really propose?

Robbie Williams has managed to cause a bit of confusion by apparently asking his girlfriend to marry him on an Australian radio show.

The singer, who has been a bit of a bachelor throughout his career, was on Sydney 2Day FM on the Kyle and Jackie O Show last week with Ayda Field (the girlfriend in question) when he reportedly popped the question.

He said: "Will you marry me? I love you so much, would you mind being my betrothed until the end of time?" and she replied: "I would love to be your betrothed until the end of time."

However, before you get too excited at the idea of an A-list celebrity wedding, the proposal has been written off by Robbie’s spokesman. He claimed it was just a joke. Despite this, Robbie’s mum Jan is adamant it was a genuine engagement. In a radio interview, she said: "He wanted to do something different. She’s a lovely girl and I’m really pleased for them. I’ve got a daughter-in-law."

We wait with baited breath for the truth. Is Robbie finally going to be united in holy matrimony?

Katie Price’s bad luck continues

It’s fair to say Katie Price isn’t having a good week. She endured bushtucker trial after bushtucker trial in I’m A Celebrity, despite begging the public to give her a break, until it finally got too much and she quit. Katie Price in Australia (Rex)

During her time in the jungle, Katie endured being showered with 60,000 cockroaches, she burrowed through a tunnel filled with bugs, and attempted to eat a kangaroo anus and testicles, among other horrors. Faced with her seventh consecutive bushtucker trial, Katie gave up and left the jungle for the luxury of the nearby Versace Hotel.

But there were more dramas to come – in her live TV interview with Ant and Dec the following day, Katie announced she was no longer dating Alex Reid. “I’ve done a lot of reflecting,” she said. “I think it’s best I’m on my own, I just don’t want to be in a relationship. I hope we can remain friends.”

Katie admitted that memories from her first jungle visit in 2004, when she first met Peter Andre, may have contributed to her decision. "The whole place reminded me of Pete from the moment I woke up, the afternoon to the moment I went to sleep, every second it was Pete, Pete, Pete.”

And now a report in The Mirror states that Katie’s £30 million business empire isn’t growing at the expected rate. According to the newspaper, the model’s new children’s book range is selling poorly, with one book, Mermaids and Pirates: All Around, only selling 19 copies! The figures, from Neilsen Bookscan ratings, also reveal that the latest series of Perfect Ponies books has sold under 1,000 copies, compared with 26,000 for the series debut in 2007. Katie’s bed linen range is no longer being stocked in some stores, and her lingerie range for Asda is reportedly "under review”.

If eating worms and burrowing through cockroaches isn’t going to endear Katie to the British public, what will?

Ali Bastian gets festive with dance partner

The Bill actress Ali Bastian still hasn’t confirmed she is dating her Strictly Come Dancing partner Brian Fortuna, but the two are spending an awful lot of time together, both on and off the dancefloor.Brian Fortuna and Ali Bastian

Despite spending all week together practicing their moves, the cute couple found time to step out together at the Magic Bing Dome in Covent Garden, to celebrate the launch of Bing, the new search engine from Microsoft. They got into the festive spirit, scoffing mince pies and searching for the best gift deals online and ideas for what to cook this Christmas.

Ali is one of the favourites to waltz off with the Strictly Come Dancing crown (along with Ricky Whittle) so it’s unlikely this dancing duo will be separated any time soon.
