  • Stephen Hawking warned us about contacting aliens, but this astronomer says it's 'too late'

  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).

  • The X Factor 2016: the manipulation is unbearable, and other things we learnt from Saturday's Six Chair Challenge 

    Samantha Lavery, 16, with her wild hair and powerful voice, stood out throughout the earlier stages of the show, but tonight her journey came to a brutal end. While Louis Walsh told her she had “great stage presence and a great voice”, Simon Cowell – the one who really mattered here (let’s face it, he’s always the one who really matters…) – was not impressed. “Samantha, here’s the problem,” he said. “You have no idea who you are, you have overstyled yourself, the song was horrible and so I’m now in a really difficult position”. Of course, she has no idea who she is – without wishing to sound like Louis Walsh, she’s only 16 years old! – and isn’t it part of the job of the mentors to help her figure

  • EastEnders: Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell to be killed off

    Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell leaving EastEnders is going to be the end of an era for the BBC One soap, especially now that we have learned that it’s going to be a permanent departure. Actresses Rita Simons (Roxy) and Sam Womack (Ronnie) are said to be upset by the news that the Mitchell sisters are being bumped off as they’d hoped to have the option to return at some stage in the future. The exit comes under new producer Sean O’Connor’s ruling, with Sean already killing off much-loved character Paul Coker as well as announcing the departures of other favourites, including Babe Carter, Masood Ahmed, Lee Carter, Claudette Hubbard, Buster, Briggs, Pam and Les Coker and Kyle Slater.

    “I always have a look out the window in the mornings to show my daughter the birds and noticed this strange object in the sky.  “At first I thought it was a plane that leaves a trial behind it but realised quickly it wasn’t because it was just hovering.  “There were other planes flying high near the object but the object was above the planes and was stationary.  “I observed it for around 20 minutes. I thought it might have been the Chinese Space lab [Tiangong-2, which was launched on the same day] but the launch happened at 2pm GMT.  “Personally, I’m not sure what the object was. All I know is that it had to have been a massive object to appear as big as it did in the sky.”

  • Brexit warning: US bank bosses from Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and BlackRock threaten Theresa May with relocation

    There followed “frank exchanges” in which bosses warned they could not wait to discover the final outcome of the two-year Article 50 negotiations before making major investment decisions that could see thousands of UK jobs shift to Europe. “The message was clear from at least some of those present: if Theresa May cannot provide some early clarity about where the negotiations will end up, the only way to avoid that uncertainty would be a move towards Europe – there will not be time to wait,” said the City source with knowledge of the meeting. Before the June 23 vote to leave the EU, the heads of several major foreign banks including JPMorgan and UBS warned that “significant” numbers of jobs could be shipped to Europe when the impacts of Brexit became clear. Estimates of possible City job losses from a “hard Brexit” have ranged widely from 40,000 to 80,000 over the next decade, with JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley saying they could shift over 1,000 employees.
