Katie Price is rumoured to be making a return to the TV show where she met Peter Andre

The Mirror reports that the glamour model has been offered almost half a million pounds to return to the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle. When Katie first appeared on the show in 2004, she met and fell in love with Peter Andre. The pair went on to get married and have two children together, but have recently divorced.

It has been said that Katie is trying to win back credibility from the public, after the messy ordeal with Andre. However, if Katie is in the jungle this time, she won’t be looking for love due to her relationship with cross-dressing cage-fighter, Alex Reid.  

The popular ITV show sees celebrities compete against each other in the Australian jungle, and includes bushtucker trials such as eating insects and kangaroo testicles. The new series begins on Sunday November 15 on ITV1.

Kym Marsh is the Celeb Mum of the Year

Kym Marsh, PA PhotosThe Celebrity Mum of the Year was announced today, and the lucky winner was Coronation Street actress, Kym Marsh.

The mum-of-two was up against the likes of Katie Price, Holly Willoughby and Samantha Cameron, but she beat them all to the prestigious title. On receiving her award, she said: "It is a real honour to get this award. It is nice to know I have got a lot of support out there – it has been a really difficult year. I have been a single parent in the past and I have had struggles, so hopefully people still think I have done the best by my children.”

Kym tragically lost her baby boy Archie (who was fathered by Hollyoaks actor, Jamie Lomas) earlier this year, when he was born 18 weeks early. She already has two children from a previous relationship; David, 14 and Emily, 11.

The 33-year-old also used today to announce her reconciliation with her ex-boyfriend, Jamie Lomas. The couple split recently, following the unfortunate loss of their son, but now they are back together. Things are looking up for Kym!

Coleen and Wayne have baby boy

It has been reported by The Sun that Coleen went into labour earlier today, and gave birth to a boy at 2:20pm. A spokesman for the couple has said: "Mother and baby are both absolutely fine. Wayne and Coleen are thrilled with the wonderful addition to their family life."

The new parents have named their new addition Kai Wayne Rooney, Kai meaning ‘ocean’ in Hawaiian.

The young couple, who have been together since they were just 14 years old, married last year in a spectacular Italian wedding ceremony. The birth of their first child comes just over a year since they exchanged wedding vows.

New mum Coleen has been in the public eye for a few years now, with her own TV show, her book deals, her advertising campaigns and her own magazine column. However, just before she announced she was pregnant, she admitted she would love to be a full-time mum: "I would like to have a family – maybe three or four children – and I would be happy to be a full-time mum. I do enjoy my work but I’d be happy when we do have children to just get on with that."

Whatever happens to one of our favourite celeb couples, we wish them and Kai all the best!

Jude Law’s baby finally revealed

Samantha Burke, the ex-lover of Jude Law, has finally revealed their new daughter to the world, despite Law never having met her.

Samantha Burke, an American model/actress, hit the headlines earlier this year when she announced she was pregnant with the illegitimate baby of Jude Law, after a brief relationship. He has now been proven via DNA testing that he is definitely the father of baby Sophia. Featured in the latest issue of Hello magazine, Burke shows off their new daughter, and admits that there have been no plans made (as yet) for Law to meet her.

"There are no plans for it to happen at the moment, but I know he’s busy,” she has said.

In the exclusive interview and photo shoot, Burke also reveals how emotional the birth was, and that she would definitely like Law to be involved in Sophia’s life; "I think of my relationship with my father, and I think it’s just as important as your relationship with your mother. I’m very hopeful that it’ll work out, for Sophia’s sake."

Burke has also hit back at claims that she is a gold-digger, saying; "It really hurt. People who know me will testify that I have never dated a guy for money."

So, should he make the effort to meet his new daughter, or is it best for the actor to stay out of her life altogether?

Katie Price’s unusual book launch

Katie Price has hit the headlines again, by dressing her boyfriend up to look like her for the launch of her new book, Standing Out.Alex Reid (Rex)

The glamour girl persuaded her cage-fighter boyfriend, Alex Reid, and three other male friends to dress up like her in one of the most unusual photo shoots that has ever taken place. The other (very obliging) men to take part in the stunt were her trainer Andrew Gould, her brother Danny and her friend Phil Turner. The mum-of-three dressed up too, in a Marylin Monroe style wig.

As shocking as this stunt might seem, it seems that Reid’s love of cross-dressing might be the catalyst for it. It was recently revealed that the 34-year-old is a fan of dressing up in women’s clothing.

When asked about the whole event, Price said: "This is all tongue-in-cheek, we’re all having a laugh and we really enjoyed it.”

Price has recently gained a lot of media attention due to her comments earlier this week about her ex-husband Peter Andre’s alleged affair with their manager, Claire Powell. Both Andre and Powell have denied her accusations and are said to be taking legal action.

Katie Price’s ex-manager to take legal action

Recent claims made by Katie Price, that her ex-manager was having an affair with ex-husband Peter Andre during their marriage, have been vehemently denied by the other parties.

The glamour model appeared on The Graham Norton Show, and made some comments about ex-manager Claire Powell (pictured) and Andre that were slightly unsavoury. BBC bosses were forced to censor a lot of what was said, but Price has still managed to ruffle some feathers.  She claimed that her ex-husband had cheated on her with Powell and that their alleged ‘affair’ was part of the reason for the breakdown of her marriage.

It has been reported on Heatworld that Powell has fought back and threatened legal action: "This is a total lie. I’m seeing my lawyers now. No one can take what she says seriously. She has to find someone to blame for the marriage break-up. I am not that person."

Andre has also released an official statement, ending with a word of warning to his ex: “I have said once before that if anybody slanders my name I will not hesitate in taking legal action and that is exactly what both Claire and I will do." (Read the whole statement here.)

Katie’s recent comments are just another twist in the tale of the overly publicised divorce between her and Andre. We wait with baited breath to see what will happen next…

Dawn French and Stephen Fry top popularity survey

A recent survey, in association with the new Freixenet Cava Week campaign, has revealed a lot about how us Brits are feeling about the recession.

Over 2,000 British adults were asked which celebrity would be the most fun to spend time with. Dawn French topped the female poll with an astounding 40% of the votes, and Stephen Fry, our favourite Tweeter, received 20% of the male celebrity vote. Clearly in times as hard as these, people would rather be around someone funny and ‘larger-than-life’ than someone like Sienna Miller, who only received 1% of the vote for female celebs.

X Factor darling Cheryl Cole came second after French with 11% of the vote, and it turns out that charming chat show host Paul O’Grady is also popular, receiving 14%.

Camilla Dallerup, the current Strictly Come Dancing champion, is the face of the campaign, and is hoping to inject a bit more fun and glamour into the lives of us beaten-down Brits with the launch of the new Cava ‘Elyssia’.

Other results showed that a sizable 23% of people would rather have a glass of fizz in their bed than any other kind of food or drink, such as a cup of tea, which only got 6%of the votes. Sounds alright to us!

Sugababes Amelle in private clinic

Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah is being treated for nervous exhaustion in a private clinic.

Sugababes - Jade, Amelle and Heidi (Rex) The band’s management has blamed Amelle’s ill health on the stresses of the last few months, which lead to founding member Keisha Buchanan being sacked from the Sugababes.

A statement on the group’s website said: "It seems that with all the recent events in the band right up to Jade joining us a few weeks ago, the stress over a period of months has unfortunately taken its toll on Amelle and she is now suffering from a severe bout of nervous exhaustion. For the next three weeks, Amelle will be staying at a private health clinic in Europe where she will be able to rest and recuperate under expert supervision."

Heidi Range and new member Jade Ewen both added their own messages to the above statement: "Both Amelle and I have been through a very traumatic time together in recent months and particularly over the past few weeks." Jade added: "We’re glad that Amelle is getting the right support now to help her return to work."

Amelle’s illness means two performances have been cancelled – one in Leeds and one on German television. The new Sugababes line-up had also been due to perform at the Scottish Royal Variety Performance last week, but pulled out due to "a number of legal issues to be finalised".

Leona’s attacker ‘X Factor reject’

The man who punched Leona Lewis in the face at a London book signing on October 14 had previously auctioned for X Factor, it has been revealed.

Leona Lewis (PA Photos)Scotland Yard confirmed Peter Kowalczyk had been charged with assault and sectioned under the Mental Health Act after hitting Leona at Waterstone’s in Piccadilly, where the former X Factor champ was signing copies of her new autobiography, Dreams.

His father told The Sun the 29-year-old was jealous of Leona’s fame, after trying out for X Factor but failing to get past the first round. “He wants to be a singer. He went along and queued at X Factor. How far he got with it? Nowhere.” Tomasz Kowalczyk was quoted as saying.

Following the incident, Leona released a statement to fans, saying the attack had left her shaken and in pain. “Thank you so much for your support. It was a horrible shock and left me extremely hurt and upset. I’m sorry to those I wasn’t able to meet at the signing. Love you all.”

Kowalczyk will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on October 26.

Cheryl to mime on X Factor: reports

Cheryl Cole will perform her debut solo single on X Factor this weekend, but, according to reports, the Girls Aloud star won’t be singing live.

Cheryl Cole on X Factor (Rex)An X Factor spokesperson has confirmed the performance of Fight For This Love won’t be totally live: “Cheryl will be recording her music performance earlier in the day with a live studio audience to ensure she can fully continue with her judging commitments on The X Factor later that evening.”

This comes after Alexandra Burke was accused of lip-synching during her performance of Bad Boys on last week’s X Factor results show, while, just minutes, later, Robbie Williams clearly sang 100% live.

In my opinion, Alexandra seemed to be singing live (in some parts, at least) but over the top of a pre-recorded backing track. If Alexandra did mime, I’m sure it wasn’t her idea – the whole marketing campaign for Bad Boys is based around the dancing and the spectacle, more than the song itself. I have no doubt that when the time comes to promote Alexandra’s next single, thought to be the ballad Overcome, she will belt it out on telly without any need for a backing track.

As for Cheryl, her vocals aren’t as strong as protégé Alexandra’s, so I’m not surprised she’s decided to take the safe option and pre-record her performance. What do you think – should a judge on a live talent show, where all the contestants are made to sing 100% live, be allowed to lip-synch? Leave a comment below.
