*James Morrison sounds like he had a frosty reception from SuBo when he met her recording his lines for the Hope for Haiti single, Everybody Hurts. He revealed: “She was cool. I leaned in and gave her a kiss – I don’t think she was too keen on giving me one back but I didn’t mind – I was polite and stuff – that’s all you can do really.”
*Ricky Gervais has gone so Hollywood these days. He’s lost weight, mixes with all the A-List and hosted the Globes recently. But now he’s discussing his work out regime in interviews! He told Capital’s Kevin Hughes: “I often do a bit of working out to Gaga – that’s on the shuffle. I’ve not got around to working out to Susan Boyle. Ha ha. Well maybe she’ll be on my iPod one day!” I don’t think I could work out to SuBo!
*Congratulations to ITV at the Movies host Lizzie Cundy and her footballer hubby Jason who renewed their wedding vows in a private Indian themed ceremony on Friday evening at London’s plush Taj Hotel. Guests included Sarah Cawood, Bianca Gascoigne and Vanessa Feltz. It’s good to know true love can last the distance!
*Abbaworld is the one stop pit stop for any Abba junkie. The exhibition at Earls Court Exhibition Centre had stars including Boy George and X Factor’s Lucie Jones there this week – as well as Frida and Bjorn themselves! Tickets are on sale for up until, March 28 at www.abbaworld.com.
*Eeeeek. Katy Brand wants to pull a Shakira in the next series of her comedy show. She said at the Loaded bash: “I’ve got a yearning to put a nude leotard and writhe about in a cage ala Shakira. Let’s hope the British public are ready for that. I’d love to do Prince too.” I’m not sure I’m ready for that one!
*What is it with comedians and running? First Eddie Izzard and now Frank Skinner has confessed he’s started working out. Frank revealed at the Loaded Laftas: “Eddie Izzard told me that he was running and he was doing a marathon. I said I hadn’t run since 1987. He said it would all come back to me – which is not necessarily true. Anyway I ran with Eddie and did six and a half miles and since then I’ve started running again.” Good for him!
