Apprentice couple get engaged

Apprentice pair Kate Walsh and Philip Taylor have got engaged according to reports. According to The Sun, Walsh has been spotted wearing a £3,000 ring from London’s Hatton Garden. “They are very much in love and this was always more than a work fling. Neither of them wanted to split,” said a source. “Phil had been known as a womaniser but Kate has ended all that. He loves her to bits and is smitten.”

The couple fell for each other while filming the BBC reality show and rekindled their relationship when the series aired. It was confirmed last month that Walsh had landed a presenting job on GMTV to talk about women’s office fashion.

Cowell to quit The X Factor?

Tabloid reports have claimed that Simon Cowell will quit The X Factor after the current series. According to The Mirror, Cowell will leave the show to focus on his rumoured new entertainment company with Topshop owner Sir Philip Green. Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh and Dannii Minogue will apparently remain on the judging panel. Cowell’s contract with ITV ends in December and he is allegedly reviewing his future TV plans. The music mogul reportedly wants to keep his post on fellow ITV1 series Britain’s Got Talent. “He has found X Factor increasingly draining and it leaves him little time for serious business,” said a source. “Now he’s decided this will be his last series and he’s moving on. In future, he will have a more overseeing role.”

Top Five Celebrity Drink Drivers: Cos DUI’s are hawt dah-ling

We can’t help it, part of our idolisation of celebs comes with a possibly unhealthy helping of glee every time they mess up, and they make it soo easy for us to jeer at them. Currently the Hollywood trend seems to be drinking whilst driving, which is neither cool nor safe, as not only are they endangering their own lives, they’re threatening ours, which is why the next trend- celebs with prison sentences has been occurring. Now who are the worst offenders?

Number One: Mischa Barton

Oh Marissa, how could you? You were meant to be the Hollywood model child, who had great taste in clothes, groomed hair and a string of hotties trailing you, not an unkempt boozehound in the style of Ms Lohan and Hilton. Just for the fact that you’ve saddened us you get the number one spot, as your history of clean living and 8 hours sleep is suddenly under doubt now. She was caught driving UNLICENSED and under the influence, and possibly in possession of MARIJUANA as well. She’s now been bailed for $10,000 and spent seven hours behind bars before her release. To be continued…

Number 2: Lindsay Lohan

We all know about this troubled girls stint with the law, and her subsequent rehab and relapse into a fuzz headed fruitcake. She gets the number two spot as she managed to make an alcohol monitoring device look like a fashion accessory, pout in her mugshot, and most recently is seen going off the rails with multiple men in one night. This lush lovely is sure to reoffend again, but we hope we’re not anywhere near her when this train wreck waiting to happen tootles into the station.

Number 3: George Michael

He faces the charge of should have known better and really, at your age? Tut, tut. Fortunately he gets to ‘go outside’ (see what I did there?), well stay outside anyways as no jail terms have been given so far. Honestly Georgie you’re 43, can’t you get a driver or something, this is just embarrassing. He’s just had his ‘third vehicular incident in eight months’ which isn’t good however you look at it, and had his second time of being CAUGHT ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. For real!I I mean it’s kinda the end of the road for you man, why not retire to California and buy a beach somewhere with a nice little Thai Bride?( Boy or girl optional).Come on man, act your age. Let’s stop all this Wham Bam thank you Mam stuff.

Number4: Paris Hilton

Now with Ms Hilton you will find a public lack of sympathy for the poor little heiress but I think this is unfair.

So she was born with a platinum spoon up her arse, well that just encouraged her to participate in dubious porn videos with ugly men, and all her money? Well if the Simple Life is anything to go by it certainly buy you brains, so how can we blame the poor lass for driving drunkenly multiple times? She’s just a victim of the society that heralded her as a role model for Pretty Woman wannabees everywhere, and now she cracked under the pressure. I vote we start a save the heiress campaign and all coat ourselves in her latest scent, Can Can, cos if she can, so can you. What’s a DUI between friends, yeah?

Number 5: Nicole Richie

Now here’s a sad tale of a copycat drunk, one who was forever in Paris’ shadow wherever she went, so lost half her body weight so she’d become even more invisible. A terrible case of green eyed envy between friends and a ‘Whatever she can do I can do better’ attitude doesn’t exactly win friends. Skipping the country when you have a deposition doesn’t work wonders either, and then getting preggers to avoid jail? Tut tut.
Now she’s all yummy mummy but that doesn’t fool us- watch this space.

Preston’s no Ordinary Boy – he’s Doherty’s boy!

Butter wouldn’t melt, would it? This sweet-faced cherub, known for his band The Ordinary Boys and his Missus Chantelle, recently filled in for Pete Doherty at Gatecrasher’s Summer Sound system. This Leeds-based event was almost ruined when Doherty failed to show up for the £40-a-ticket gig, so our Preston saved the day by taking centre stage. And he’s pretty easy on the eye, too…

Lindsay Lohan loves hair extensions

Ahh Linsdsay. Great makeup? Check. Stylish clothes? Check. Glossy hair? Well, kinda. True these extensions look shiny and well maintained without a hint of WAG ness about them, but the length just seems so unneccessary- creating the impression of a life size Barbie with a bad boy habit. Give them the chop Li’lo- your hotter without them.

Ronan Keating: “Louis Walsh tried to ruin me!”

It was one of the most spectacular celeb fallings out of all time, when bosom buddies Ronan Keating and Louis Walsh parted ways. It’s fair to say it wasn’t the most amicable of splits and the resulting war of words has been entertaining to say the least. Louis told the press: “He wasn’t the most talented one – he’s not a great singer and he’s got no personality.” However, that was awhile ago, but it appears Ronan isn’t over it yet!

He told Closer magazine: “That man absolutely tried to ruin me and if he thinks we can ever hug and make up – he can forget it. I haven’t heard from him in three years and I wouldn’t have a problem if I never saw him again. He’s not a nice character.”
