The pair - who starred together in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' trilogy alongside Johnny Depp - are to appear in 'The Fever Returns', a new film based on cult disco movie 'Saturday Night Fever'.
The original film, which was released in 1977 and starred John Travolta, was set in Brooklyn but movie bosses are reportedly planning to base 'The Fever Returns' in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, England.
It is not yet clear if the movie will be a sequel or remake of 'Saturday Night Fever'.
Earlier this week, Keira admitted she is unsure of the type of movie roles she wants to take on next.
She said: "I haven't quite found what I'm looking for yet. What I'm not capable of doing is saying, 'For my career, I should be doing this right now.' I can't do that because I can't try and be interested in something that I'm not.
"It has to be about something that I do actually want to talk about. It can be really embarrassing and depressing and very cynical if you sit there and go, 'Well, I got a really big pay cheque.' "

'The Duchess' actress - who is often criticised for her slim figure - believes she would get a break from her detractors if she had a baby.
She said: "That's a good reason to have a kid. They won't say I'm anorexic any more. S**t, I've got to have a child."
The 23-year-old actress - who recently revealed she has been feeling "jumpy" after a passer-by jumped out and screamed abuse at her while she walked alone near her London home - also claims the constant questions about her weight are "not appropriate".
She added: "I can't win. One week I'm anorexic and now my curves are too big. I mean really? It's a joke. What's next? Am I too tall, too short? Well, I'm sorry I'm me.
"It's so predictable to be asked about it, but to me it's not appropriate."
The star's actor boyfriend Rupert Friend - who she met on the set of 'Pride and Prejudice' - recently revealed he is in no rush to have children and is not planning to propose to Keira any time soon.

Keira Knightley has hired a bodyguard after being verbally abused on the street.
The actress has been left shaken after a passer-by jumped out at her and screamed obscenities as she walked alone near her home in Richmond, London.
The 23-year-old star spent much of her time in a private room at the after-party following the premiere of the 'The Duchess' on Wednesday (03.09.08) as she feared for her safety.
She said: "The other day I was walking down the street and was really thinking about this book I'd been sent. You know when you're really in another place. Somebody jumped out and went, 'Keira Knightley!'
"I got such a shock, I couldn't say anything because I'd been thinking about the book and this guy took incredible offense and started hurling the most amazing abuse.
'He said, 'Who the f**k do you think you f***ing are? You're such a ****.' All this, and I'm completely on my own."
The star - who has played several strong female leads in her acting career - took boyfriend Rupert Friend to the premiere and party for extra support.
She added: "It's a weird thing to have to deal with, not on a day-to-day basis, but it's happened enough to make me quite jumpy."

The stunning 23-year-old actress - who wore a strapless blue dress and Chanel jewellery - signed autographs for screaming fans as she walked down the red carpet in London's Leicester Square.
Keira revealed her costumes for the film - in which she plays Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire - were far less comfortable than her outfit choice for the glitzy event.
She told BANG Showbiz: "It was fantastic wearing the costumes in the film. Georgiana was a huge fashion icon in the 18th Century so it was so important we got the costumes right.
"I think they were like an armour for her, she was an incredibly vulnerable character. They were obviously integral to the film.
"Not very comfortable, but very beautiful."
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star also revealed she loves portraying spirited characters.
She added: "I find strong women more interesting to play. I also think you rarely get the opportunity to work with other women in films so I always find it great to work with other actresses."
The premiere was also attended by Keira's co-stars Ralph Fiennes, who plays the Duke of Devonshire in the film, and Dominic Cooper.

Keira Knightley collapsed in a fit of giggles while filming a sex scene for new movie 'The Duchess' because her co-star Dominic Cooper had to wear a flesh-coloured nappy.Keira Knightley's co-star wore a flesh-coloured nappy for their sex scene in their new movie.
The 23-year-old actress collapsed in a fit of giggles when Dominic Cooper, 30, stepped out in the unflattering underwear for 'The Duchess'.
Keira said: "We are all meant to be supportive of each other in these difficult and embarrassing scenes, but I took one look at him and just lost it.
"I couldn't stop laughing because Dominic was trying to be dignified and aloof while looking completely ridiculous. The director came over and said, 'Pull yourself together. This is serious work.' "
Despite being embarrassed by Keira's reaction, Dominic admits his costume was not the most attractive of items.
He said: "On screen, it looks as if I am naked, but in reality I was wearing a flesh-coloured nappy which is held in place by being taped to my inner sanctum.
"And what did Keira do when she saw me? She burst out laughing. Unbelievable!"
August 11, 2008 3:33 PM
Keira, who played Vera Phillips in the Dylan Thomas biopic, revealed the pair have drifted apart, despite enjoying a close friendship on set.
She said: "I love Sienna, I think she's a wonderful actress, but we've been like two passing ships in the night recently.
"I think that's lovely but also sad about acting. You get incredibly close to people and as soon as it's over you don't see each other.
"I don't think I'm very good at figuring out female friendships. I think they're quite tricky to navigate."
The 23-year-old star also said she discusses her sex life with her mother, playwright Sharman Macdonald.
She added to Britain's Glamour magazine: "Mum and I would always talk about sex. She'd come up to my room, have me roll her cigarettes and then tell me I'd have to have one with her.
"It's not the typical mother-daughter thing but we're extremely close.
"Mum's a bit mental in a good way. She's this chilled-out hippy mother. My house was always the one where my brother and his mates would be drinking when they shouldn't be."

Lads mag FHM has announced its annual list of the world's sexiest women as voted for by their horny readers and the results make for interesting reading (if you’re into that kind of thing). Transformers star Megan Fox has nabbed the top spot with her first time on the list, proving that boys like girls that run around fighting shiny machines while resembling Angelina Jolie without the children.
Other newbies on the list include opera singer Katherine Jenkins, supermodel Agyness Deyn and Prince Harry's lady friend Chelsea Davy. However, at Star Trip we're most excited by the new entry coming in at number 91 – none other than Location, Location, Location (did we say that enough times?) property expert Kirstie Allsopp. Maybe it's that domineering, know-it-all school mistress vibe she's working.
The top five was rounded out by last year's number one, Jessica Alba at two, glamour model Keeley Hazell at three and American TV actresses Elisha Cuthbert and the barely-legal Hayden Panettiere at four and five respectively.
Established totty such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley, Hilary Duff and Cheryl Cole made the top ten, but there was no love this time for new-mums Jennifer Lopez and Myleene Klass and Kate Moss.
Speaking on the results, FHM's editor-in-chief Anthony Noguera said: "This year, after 9.7 million votes from around the world, [the poll] has never been more authoritative. Megan Fox is a very deserving winner... From out of nowhere, she's captured the hearts - and fantasies - of British men to capture the number one slot."
So congratulations to Megan Fox, who is now officially the most wanked over woman in Britain. Oh for such a noble accolade…

When you were a kid who did you look up to and admire? Chances are they were slightly more inspiring than the current crop of celebrities that British children claim are their top role models. A new poll conducted by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) found that a whopping 53% of sprogs want to be David Beckham. With his footballing prowess, hoards of lusty female fans and impressive bank balance – Mr. Beckham is one of the more understandable and logical choices found on the list. Unlike other names…
David's Spice Girl wife Victoria was inexplicably voted the second choice with 30% of the vote. Yes, she too enjoys a life of celebrity luxury and was once a hard-working pop star – but a role model for young minds? Still, it could be worse – Paris Hilton made it to number six on the list.
Elsewhere, sporting stars such as Chelsea's Frank Lampard and Formula One rookie Lewis Hamilton proved popular as are actors such as David Tennant and Keira Knightley, with music being represented by the Sugababes, Leona Lewis and Nadine Coyle.
Being in double digits, the idea that these celebrities are worthy role models has me scratching my head in confusion (not cos I have nits – urgh!), however the general secretary of the ATL, Dr. Mary Bousted, is far less surprised.
"It reflects the current media obsession with celebrity and the effect of celebrity culture on society as a whole," she explained. "However, we are deeply concerned many pupils' believe celebrity status is available to everyone. They do not understand the hard work it takes to achieve such status and do not think it is important to be actively engaged in school work as education is not needed for a celebrity status.
"Celebrity culture can perpetuate the notion that celebrity status is the greatest achievement and reinforces the belief that other career options are not valuable."
And let's be honest – not every girl aspiring to be a WAG is going to be pretty enough to pull it off.

It seems that Keira Knightley is now such an accomplished actress that she has nothing else to learn or achieve in the world of cinema and so is turning to music for her next challenge. Of course I jest, Keira is not giving up acting (shame), but is going to give her vocal chords a good workout. The pouty star will appear on the soundtrack of her new film The Edge of Love singing three songs, yet she maintains she's no singer.
"I can't really sing," admits Keira in that gosh-I'm-so-jolly-normal way of her's. "I had to have a few lessons, but once I started doing it, a sound emerged that wasn't too disagreeable." Be honest love, you couldn't think your voice too rubbish or else you wouldn't be putting it out for there for every man and his dog to sneer at. Oh, how I hate such faux celebrity modesty.

Sorry ladies, it looks like that sexy beast Rhys Ifans is soon to be off the market. "Dear God – say it's not so", I hear you cry, but I am sorry to report that the grungy Welsh actor is now engaged to Sienna Miller. The boho (euphemism for dirty and unwashed) couple has been dating for a year, during which time Notting Hill star Ifans has proposed to Miller on three occasions, and now on his lucky third attempt, Jude Law's ex has said yes.
A source close to the couple (though, let's hope not too close, as they probably smell of joss sticks) has revealed: "Rhys has admitted he and Sienna are getting married. Everything is supposed to be hush-hush, but Rhys is over the moon and finding it hard to keep quiet... he can't believe she finally said yes." Me either – just look at the scruff of a man. How is possible to go from Jude Law to that? Anyway, as long as they're happy.
"Although Si and Rhys have a lot of famous friends, they will keep it low-key," added the chum. "They won't be signing up to some magazine deal." These famous friends include the likes of Keira Knightley, Kate Moss and Noel Gallagher. Of course they won't want a magazine deal – how can they all get trashed with an OK! magazine photographer in their faces?

Keira Knightley has turned out in a peach coloured Rodarte dress for the Atonement premiere in Los Angeles last week. Glowing with good heath, the actress showed off her new bangs, which is fast becoming a Hollywood trend. While the Rodarte dress still drapes a little awkwardly across her chest, Keira looks a lot healthier than she did 3 months ago when she showed off her rib cage and hollow eyes at the London Atonement premiere. The bangs look fantastic on her, with her porcelain features she looks almost doll like in the full-skirted dress.

-Kate Nash refuses to be labelled, as she says she's far to posh to be considered a chav. “I think the press really wanted me to be a chav because of the way I sing. I’m way too articulate to be a chav. I’m the new Posh, me.” [Daily Star ]
-Hot to trot Jessica Biel is set to play Wonder Woman (a stretch for her then) in the hotly touted Justice League of America. We can't wait for the skintight costume shots...[E ]
-Trailer trash superstar Courtney Love is in talks to design a clothing range. I'm envisaging a safety pinned Amy Winehouse meets Barbarella ensemble with added accessories from jilted boyfriends. Far be it for me to say she's unqualified, as she fights back at criticism with the following statement of her suitability as a future fashionista. 'I know a lot of people are doing lines but my first job, other than stripping, was on 'Mommie Dearest' as an assistant in wardrobe'. Um, OK. [Jezebel ]
-Keira Knightley may look super fine, but herself esteem is slightly less. She's bugged about her presence, and hates being called anorexic. "I haven't got a clue about how much I weigh. I do not own any scales. And I have noticed it creates an anger in people who are not skinny. People like to blame their insecurities on other people." [Daily China ]
September 21, 2007 10:00 AM
- Keira Knightley might have established her name with Hollywood blockbuster films such as the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy and King Arthur, but the actress with body issues (she did call herself “big”) is keen to move away from them. She says, "I can't imagine ever doing another one. I had five months off from Pirates during the summer last year, when I made Silk and Atonement, and it was so great - I want to be able to explore emotions in smaller projects." So she wants to blight quality, mature films with her ‘acting’ instead of expensive American ones – got it. [IMDb]
- Paul Weller has defended tabloid favourite Amy Winehouse, calling her a “great role model.” The Modfather, who has worked with Wino in the past, is obviously hoping for a musical reunion: "She is an amazing, great talent and, despite what all the papers say, she is a great role model for people and I don't think the drugs and the drink and all that make a scrap of difference really." Tell that to the fans she regularly disappoints by cancelling her gigs. [Female First]
- Obviously determined to make the nation feel nauseous, Sharon Osbourne has been talking about her and husband Ozzy’s sex life. According to the X Factor judge, Ozzy is “like a rabbit, he’s terrible. Every song gets him in the mood for love. He’s just like that battery. Instead of that little rabbit they should have Ozzy’s willy banging a drum.” An image guaranteed to make stomachs lurch. [The Sun]
- Kerry Katona hasn’t been in the papers for a few days now and so has opted for the failsafe headline grabber: badmouth another celebrity. Over to Kerry: “I can't believe that stupid cow Jodie Marsh has married Matt Peacock. I think she's spent her whole life trying to be Jordan and now she's married Kate's ex. She's got sloppy seconds. How low can you go?” I don’t know Kerry, you tell me. [Now magazine]

- Everyone is abandoning the sinking ship that is Britney Spears's career. Her manager Jeff Kwantinez has quit and so has her attorney, Laura Wasser who has been representing Britters throughout her custody battle with ex Kevin Federline. Maybe she should advertise for some replacements on YouTube like P Diddy. [People]
- “Weight is a big issue in Hollywood because I’m twice the size, height and everything else, of most of the girls who are going in to see the director for a part. When you realize that I am, at my size, one of the largest actresses there, you start to think, ‘I don’t think it’d be healthy for me to stay here much longer.” - Keira Knightley. Is she getting herself confused with someone else or does she have one of those wobbly fun-house mirrors? [Perez Hilton]
- Victoria Beckham is not going to be throwing any welcome parties for new L.A. resident Rebecca Loos. Mrs. Beckham is said to be devastated that her hubbie’s reported past bit-on-the-side is moving in on her turf and possibly jeopardising her acting aspirations. As an Oscar was practically her’s, eh? [Digital Spy]
- I love Dave Grohl. Not in a creepy stalker way, but even non Foo Fighters or Nirvana fans have got to hand it to the guy – he’s got style. And just to prove my fan worship worthy, the rock god has spoken out against socialite/ sex video star Paris Hilton: "Paris is f***ing lame. She's more offensive to me than anything. She's a total, raging, disgusting, rich, lazy party slut. I pray that my daughter will not turn out like her." Yeah, I’ll bet she does too after that outburst. [The Sun]

Well OK it's just a film, but she is getting hot n heavy with two blokes at the tender age of 15. Enjoy..

Keira Knightley, seen at the premiere for Atonement, is looking a little hallowed out. Of course, that's not a reference to her slender build, but rather, she's looking a little soulless... a bit like Mumm-Ra from Thundercats.
Dressed in what can only be described as something between toilet paper and bandages, KK managed to look like someone who has been sleeping in a crypt.
Website DListed referred to this picture as "the ghost of Christmas gross..." and it's hard to disagree. If only Ziggy from Big Brother would chase her down the street shouting "SWORD OF OMENS, GIVE ME SIGHT BEYOND SIGHT!" That would make my bloody year!
September 3, 2007 11:08 AM
Keira Knightley's new film premieres this week, so here's a little preview to entice you!
In the news: Keira Knighgtley likes kissing her Atonement co star and Courtney Love denies dissing Amy Winehouse
- Courtney Love says she never dissed Amy Winehouse! "I said no such thing. I care deeply about her talent, I love this record tons, but I wouldn't comment even if I did have any knowledge. She hasn't hurt anyone I care for and she hasn't hurt me. My deepest apologies to anyone who believes this nonsense".[NME ]
-Is this the strangest love match of the decade? Pouty Renee Zellweger and wrinkly Paul Mc Cartney have been spotted being intimate on a dinner date! [Monsters and Critics ]
-Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams have ended their 3 year relationship. 'It's been rocky for a while,' says a source. [IOL ]
-Keira Knightley has kissed some of the worlds hottest men, but apparently her Atonement co-star is the best snog so far. "James [McAvoy] is the best kisser ever!" she says. Sadly he's married! [MetroMix ]
August 31, 2007 12:17 PM
- Who doesn't like lusting after fresh faced 16 year olds? Zac Efron, star oh High School Musical 2 is ever so cute, and if he's hot now, just imagine when he's drink legal... Mmm.[Daily Mail ]
-Mel B's been blushing lately, as she was showed upon the Jimmy Kimmel show. When asked about her fellow celebrities from Dancing with the Stars she admitted she didn't know any of them, not even fellow Brit Jane Seymour! [Sky Showbiz ]
-Keira Knightley says she is sickened by drunk celebrities. "The whole celebrity thing is not magic. They're real people proving they're s**ttier than everybody else because they don't even wear knickers.” Well said Keira! [India Times ]
- Rustlers is signing Gemma Atkinson to promote their microwave snacks for the campaign 'Eat Late, Eat Safe', to stop oven fires. [Now ]
Keira Knightley likes her knickers! The Pirates of the Caribbean actress is at the Venice Film Festival to promote her new flick Atonement and has been talking to the press on those celebrities that forget to put on any undies before they leave the house. Britney and Lindsay – she means you.
The posh-voiced bean-pole blabs: "I'm not going to get blind drunk and then stumble out and fall over and puke up in front of people. I'm not saying I don't do that in private, but I try not to.” I like that – the image of Keira with dried vomit in her hair as she hobbles about drunkenly with the remains of a kebab down her clothes. That’s a picture I wanna see! She adds: “The whole celebrity thing is not magic. They're real people proving they're s**ttier than everybody else because they don't even wear knickers." I agree lady after all, it must get draughty down there without any pant protection.
August 21, 2007 11:27 AM
- Pete Doherty is back in court again today, charged with breaking bail conditions. He was arrested yesterday, accused of possessing restricted substances. Oo-er. [NME ]
-Keira Knightley is a girl after our won heart, not letting fame and fortune change her one whit. "It frightens me when kids go, 'I want to be famous'," she said. "Why? Because you can get into a restaurant? You know what? If you book, you can get into a restaurant! 'I want to be rich and famous'. Go and work on the stock market." [RTE ]
-Louis Walsh claims credit for X Factor success. He says his return to the show is the reason for the ground breaking 11 million that tuned in . "Well I wouldn't want to say, 'I told you so', but I think nearly 11 million people is a fair indication that Simon should never have sacked me." [This is london ]
-Jessie Wallace hasn't left the leopard skin dresses that Kat Slater used to wear totally behind her, as she may be airing them out for her new role as an Essex girl in ITV's Wild at Heart. [The Sun ]

Air-brushing, good lighting, constant supervision from a make-up artist (how very Victoria Beckham) – there are many ways for celebrities to look better on the front cover of a magazine than how they look first thing in the morning. What is quite depressing is how many of them take it a step further and get cosmetic surgery. Slebs, with the media, present the world with unattainable ideas of beauty and then struggle to meet their own standards. For those of you having a spot break-out today, hate your wonky nose or wish you had fuller lips, never fear as Star Trip is at hand to make you feel better. We present a quite revealing YouTube clip of stars who have had a bit of help from their surgeon, from those you knew had, to those that you didn’t. According to this, no-one in Tinseltown is actually naturally good-looking – score!

Now you C it, now you don't.. . The C string challenges the G string for knicker domination, and saves Keira Knightley from flashing
Sisqo sang the thong song in 2000, and ever since then the humble G string has been elevated far beyond its measly material, making it onto the most prominent of bottoms, and saving us all from the dreaded VPL. However, it still falls short at the wayside with some of the thigh slashing dresses we've seen around. Going knickerless is always an option, but if you'd rather not flash your nethers at the waiting paparazzi/ mum n dad, then the C string may be just the thing for you. It keeps you covered ( barely) and has no sides to it, clipping on by *ahem* hugging the body very tightly. Put it this way, you probably want to sit down slowly to avoid unwanted intrusions. It comes in a variety of colours and would definitely help prevent those annoying tan lines. It seems just right for our Keira, helping her wear those skimpy frocks without a hint if a knicker line; and if its good enough for her, it's good enough for us. Pick one up at Love Honey for under a score, and add a little glam to your underwear draw.

Keira recently won £3000 from the Dail Mail, after they printed a story which suggested she was anorexic and that her figure was responsible for the death of a teenager. She says she is 'relieved' to have won, and will donate the money to Beat, a charity for eating disorders and mental illness.

Keira Knightley (no, wait! COME BACK!) is tired. Tired of fame. Who can blame her? When she's not pouting and trying to speak at the same time, or starring in the mind-bogglingly dismal Domino, she's wondering what this life is really all about. Keira's first cry for freedom was sneaked under the radar on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Screw acting... playing Bacharach tunes on yer teeth is where it's at!
Keira Knightley's never made much of an impression on me, which probably depresses her no end. After all, while I may loathe and despise all celebutards, at least I'm thinking about them. As for Keira, she's such a gossip non-entity that I had to double-check to see if we even had a category for her.
Either way, Keira's bored of fame and wants to slip nicely back into obscurity thank you very much. (Shouldn't be too hard, love.) But she doesn't want to do it right now, presumably because she's happy to milk the seven-figure paycheques and freebies for as long as possible. I would be. But then, if I was contemplating giving up my life of stardom and slipping into life as a Home Counties hostess somewhere in Surbiton, I wouldn't put out a press release about it. Or tell Elle, which is what she did.
"I couldn't have kids in the situation I'm in now. But I could just do something else. That's probably what's going to happen. I'm just not so hungry any more. I made a decision very recently that I wanted a life instead."
Good on you, love! Now how's about some chips?

This weekend ViralVideoChart.com released its top ten list of the most watched celebrity videos. Top honors went to Britney Spears, as the
stoned video of her burping and contemplating time travel was viewed 3,311,19 times. ("HUH?!?!")
Lindsay Lohan's "Paris Hilton is a C**t" video, as well as the video where Keira Knightly plays "Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head" on her teeth made the cut. However, I find the most interesting video on this list to be Paris Hilton "singing" to Hugh Hefner on his birthday. And by "interesting" I mean "so disgustingly untalented that I burst into giggle fits of glee". Her talents as a singer are absolutely breath taking. Enjoy!

Sorry, that may sound harsh – and could cause a few problems for our entire system of parliamentary democracy – but it's the inescapable conclusion from a couple of stories in today's papers. First, Victoria Beckham has been voted the country's top "yummy mummy" on account of "always looking perfectly groomed". That's not grooming, that's not-eating! Second and third places were taken by Nigella Lawson and, er, Angelina Jolie. Who's not even British.
More proof that us humans are just too stupid to be allowed to vote on anything comes in a poll for Yahoo to find the greatest ever movie starlet. Keira Knightley takes the prize, just ahead of Judy Garland and Scarlett Johansson. Yahoo defines a starlet as "an actress who people instantly think of as being young, vivacious, stylish, popular and – most of all – talented." So what Lindsay Lohan (yes, yes, yes, hmm, and er...) is doing at number six in the chart is anyone's guess.

Kelly Osbourne fake marries in an inflatable church at a music festival in Ireland. Well, when in Ireland...
Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are apparently over, whilst Angelina Jolie is pregnant again - too much information to take in all at once!
The Arctic Monkeys are the favourite to win tonight's Mercury Music Prize, even though last year's favourite was Kaiser Chiefs, and well, we all know what happened there.
Sharon Osbourne's dog bites Patrick Swayze on her chat show. No, not her pussy. Her dog. Although I wouldn't put it past her to let the pussy out of the trousers with the likes of Swayze around.
If you're wealthy enough, and flamboyant enough, you can bag yourself some of Cher's very own outfits at Sotheby's auction house in London.
Keira Knightley is stunned she actually has to pay for something. Life is hard, doll.
Madonna is auctioning off her wedding tiara on eBay, reports that this is due to bankruptcy are entirely made up.
The video of Kate Moss for Agent Provocateur has apparently crashed their server, undoubtedly due to the millions of horny pubescent boys.
Pamela Anderson launches her own makeup line, because the kids aren't slutty enough these days.
You can pick up Syd Barrett's house in Cambridge for just £300,000 where the former Pink Floyd-er lived for 25 years.

Dreaming of being whisked off by a fantasy pirate? Improve your chances by buying a pair of shoes worn by Keira Knightley in the first Pirates Of The Caribbean film, which Bayraider has found for sale on eBay for $499. You even get a pair of stockings thrown in for free. Clothing is a theme today on the eBay-mad blog, which has also turned up one of Michael Jackson's white gloves hand-sewn with hundreds of Swarovski crystals. Now that's $40,000 worth of bling. And more affordably, Bayraider has also found a vintage Beatles lunch box from 1965, thankfully without any similarly-aged sammidges inside.

As if having to return from shopping nirvana in Baden-Baden due to the rubbish football efforts of her hubby and his useless chums, Victoria Beckham has now been voted as having the least desirable body in Britain, by the readers of Closer. She narrowly edged out Kerry Katona and Jordan, apparently. Who has the best bod? Kate Winslet, followed by Charlotte Church, Keira Knightley, Coleen McLoughlin and Sienna Miller. No mixed messages there then. Most of the women I know think Posh has actually got the most desirable body in Britain anyway. At least, when he's not playing away in Madrid etc etc. [Stuart Dredge]

Keira Knightley reckons she turns into "a camp man" once a month, having revealed her 'PMT playlist' during an interview with Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley. Whe n PMT strikes, the actress turns to gay anthems from Shirley Bassey, Arethra Franklin and Liza Minnelli to stop her feeling "moody and sulky". Speaking as a man, this is an education - I thought women went roller-skating, rock-climbing and extreme skateboarding at that time of the month. Damn those mendacious tampon TV ads... [Stuart Dredge]
