*I hear Sarah Harding’s been on a strict bikini body diet whilst out playing in the Barbados surf. A source tells me: “She’s been on a strict no carbs diet and is only eating fresh fruit, vegetables and quaffing champers.” Alright for some. The Girls Aloud star paid for eight of her pals to fly all expenses to Barbados with www.lastminute.com – and apparently got an uber cheap deal!
*James Blunt knows how to party. Fact. All these stories about him being boring and geeky are just utter tosh. I spent an evening with the star at Raffles nightclub this week and he’s a right giggle. He tells me he’s been working flat out on his next album’s and it’s going to be a corker – and I don’t doubt him!
*Actress Lisa B and model Yasmin Le Bon have been busy setting up charity Mothers4Children lately. They’ve even teamed together with Elemis to give a percentage of takings to the ladies that fund children charities mainly in the UK! Lisa told me: “We want to give every child in the UK love – and love starts right at home. So we’re funding UK based charities first and foremost.” Good for them!
*Those celebrities love dem ribs! In fact Chicago Rib Shack in London’s posh Knightsbridge is becoming a haven for the A-List. In the past few weeks they’ve played host to Jimmy Page, James Corden, Jamie and Louise Redknapp and Alexandra Burke. I can’t think of anything better than tasty ribs with a dollop of celeb on the side. Yum!
*Jude Law and Sienna Miller’s rekindled romance continues to spark a flame. The pair looked romantic and close as they dined with friend at Blakes Hotel last week. Good for them. I hope it works for them this time around!
*Congratulations to fashion creative and stylist Grace Woodward. I hear this lucky lady – who’s worked with everyone who’s anyone as a stylist in the industry – will be joining the panel on the next series of Britain’s Next Top Model this series alongside new host Elle Macpherson. The show’s having a proper shake-up before the start of the new series later this year – and Grace will be a great addition.
*Reality takes another pigeon step into the ridiculous with a brand new show called 71 Degrees North where celebrities with be dumped in freezing conditions and forced to find their way to the North Pole. I hear the show will be shown during the World Cup in June and celebs are being approached right now to take part. Contracts are on the table for GMTV front man Andrew Castle and Rolling Stone offspring Tyrone Wood. It sounds like compulsive viewing!
