Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes

The movie couple's split up is 'entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement' said their lawyer. 'They ask that the media respect the privacy of the family.' Only total cynics would read that as, 'they had terrible rows and they're hiding something'.

The £200k Broom Cupboard

An 11ft by 5.5ft ex-storeroom in Knightsbridge, just opposite Harrods, was converted into Britain's tiniest flat and is now the home of Ray Barker, who said: 'I can wash up, answer the door, make a cuppa and go to the loo all at the same time'. No tea for me, thanks, Ray.

Mother, Mum, Ooh Mama

Whatever you call her, it's her day on Sunday. Last minute rememberers can find some ideas on how to give thanks here.

Anna Nicole Smith

The life and death of the stripper who married a billionaire is to be turned into an opera, written by Mark-Anthony Turnage and Richard Thomas, one of the people behind Jerry Springer: the Opera. Called simply Anna Nicole, it's set to open at the Royal Opera House in February 2011.

Nicklas Bendtner

From zero to hero for the Arsenal striker, who netted a hat-trick in his side's 5-0 win over Porto in the Champions League last night after missing chances galore against Burnley a few days ago.

Simon Cowell

Finally confirmed his engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy. 'I kinda made a decision this year to make somebody happy,' Cowell told US TV host Jay Leno. 'I am blushing'. If they ever split up, he can call her his X Factor.

John Terry

After scoring the second goal in Chelsea's 2-0 FA Cup win over Stoke yesterday, pointed to his skipper's armband. But Blues coach Ray Wilkins didn't think that had anything to do with Terry being demoted from the England captaincy, instead putting it down to, 'taking stick from the Stoke fans'.

Mickey Rourke

Confessed he once 'had 14 women in one night' on a bender in London and said that compared to Hollywood stars, naughty footballers like Ashley Cole are 'pussycats'.

Ashley Cole

Has another shot at persuading Cheryl to fight for their love when she visits him today at his rehab lair in France. In other Cole news, the couple have agreed split custody for their two pet Chuihuahuas.

Naomi Campbell

No charges for the supermodel after she allegedly whacked her driver in New York, causing his head to bash against the steering wheel. 'There is more to the story than meets the eye,' teased La Campbell's spokesperson.

Lady GaGa

Celibacy is the way forward for the raunchy singer, she says, due to lack of time on tour. For those that can't manage abstinence, the advice is condoms. 'You have to be really be careful,' she said. Sexed-up or not, GaGa plans a return to the O2 later this year.

Zero-Carbon Vicarage

St John's Church in Wembley is to build the first vicarage in the UK, probably the world, to go completely green with a new solar-panelled house for the Reverend Francis Adu-Boachie. Sunworship used to be called blasphemy.

Lily Allen

Confirmed a five-year break from music to concentrate on a retro clothes shop. On the plus side, she posted on Twitter that she is 'slightly delaying my retirement till june. my last gig will be supporting Jay Z @ wireless in london'. Before that, she's on stage with Dizzee Rascall next month.

Stephen Hester

The Royal Bank of Scotland boss blames lack of big bonuses at his (taxpayer-funded) firm for its losses. 16,000 staff still managed to share £1.3 billion – about £80k each - as RBS lost £3.6 billion.

Lindsay Lohan

She's coming to live in London. 'Moving to the UK is in my near future. Better DJs/music and Paris is just a Chunnel away!' read her announcement on Twitter.
