The online EastEnders teen spin-off is to return for a second series, the BBC has announced, to the 'delight [of] the 17,000 fans who've been calling for more episodes on the E20 Facebook page,' as the channel put it.

Sammy the Seal

East London's own water-based mammal has turned up again, in Millwall Inner Dock. 'It shows that the water is clean and supports a variety of fish," said British Waterways.

Circle Line Computer

Had an extended holiday this morning, causing the whole line to close down. 'Computers were not working for the start of services today but we hope to have them up and running later this morning,' said Transport for London, making it sound like all they need is a nice cup of tea.

Philippa Vaughan

Handed £215k of her ex-husband's £5M fortune by the Court of Appeal, 25 years after the couple were divorced. "First wives cannot be swept aside at the whim of the rich and powerful," said Vaughan, 66, who lives in a £1M house in Hammersmith and inherited £770k from her parents.

Thierry Henry

The Arsenal legend comes home as part of Barcelona's side in tonight's Champions League quarter final. 'It is a strange feeling,' said Henry.

Rage Against the Machine and Susan Boyle

X Factor clobberers RATM want the Britain's Got Talent star to perform Killing in the Name at their Finsbury Park gig on 6 June. 'We love Susan Boyle, she is hot,' said the band's Zack de la Rocha.

Kate Moss

Set to act in the Old Vic's production of The Tempest. Rumours suggest she'll take a minor role, which is likely to mean one of the goddesses, possibly Iris, the rainbow goddess.

Ian Tulloch

Swindled £100k off his company, spent the lot at a London Spearmint Rhino (equates to 5,000 lapdances at £20 a time) and walked free from court. In short, a classic financial bubble story. If you see him near a strip club, that'll be a sure sign the double dip recession is on the way.

Kate Moss and William Shakespeare

Not a couple you'd automatically put together, but according to The Mirror's source, 'Kate is keen to follow her pal' Sadie Frost into acting in a Shakespeare play at the Old Vic. Titania from A Midsummer Night's Dream maybe, or Desdemona, with Pete Doherty as Othello?

Stevie Wonder

Confirmed as the headliner for the Hard Rock Calling festival, on Saturday 26 June in Hyde Park. Jamiroquai, James Morrison and Corinne Bailey Rae are on the undercard for that day, the middle one of the event. Pearl Jam top the bill on Friday 25 June and Sir Paul McCartney on Sunday 27. Tickets for Stevie here.


Plans to move back to London, at least for this summer while she directs W.E., the film about Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. 'She still owns her place in Marylebone and will be moving back there,' said a source.

Pete Doherty

Arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs to Robin Whitehead, the heiress who died of an overdose in January. The Babyshambles singer 'was bailed to return on a date in April pending further inquiries,' said the police.

London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival

Picks up speed this weekend with the screening on Saturday of Two Spirits, a gripping film about Fred Martinez, a native American gay man murdered in 2001. The festival continues until 31 March.

P Diddy

The multi-millionaire rapper is in the market to buy struggling south London football club Crystal Palace. 'He liked the name,' said a source. 'Diddy was in London meeting football fixers a couple of weeks ago. The finance is in place.'

Rebecca Hall

The actress named as the other woman in the Kate Winslet, Sam Mendes split. Hall has worked on 'projects' with Mendes for the last year, though the Mendes camp says the duo are 'just good friends'.
