  • Cheryl, I love you - but it's time to quit

    Encouraged by her mother from infancy, Cheryl won Bonnie Baby competitions, appeared as a child in television adverts – including one for British Gas – and frequently took the top prize at local beauty pageants.

    Basically, it's one big barney about bloomin' air conditioning, with Posh and Becks spending an entire eighteen months preparing the plans to transform their £3.15million Victorian mansion in Holland Park into a luxury family home. The Mirror cites the neighbour as writing: "The council must identify our deep concerns about all adverse impacts on living conditions from noise, vibration, dirt, pollution and dust from construction and from associated traffic, in addition to concerns about impacts on drainage, on appearance and landscape, on structural stability, and on historic buildings. The Beckham family, which includes sixteen-year-old Brooklyn, twelve-year-old Romeo, ten-year-old Cruz, and three-year-old Harper, had their plans for "internal alterations at all levels" approved earlier this year and they are reportedly intending to totally reboot the house so that the finished project boasts six bedrooms, a playroom, and a cinema to name a few.

  • Zayn Malik And Perrie Edwards Look Loved-Up On Family Holiday = CUTE

    When Perrie Edwards, Zayn Malik, and his family were seen leaving the grey skies of England behind on a private jet yesterday, we a) really wanted to join them and b) spent a good two hours debating where they could be off to. Zayn looked happy and loved-up with his beautiful fiancée, who posted the kissing photo to Instagram. Relaxing is definitely what the doctor ordered for these two after the tough few weeks that they've had, and it should put all that confusion about Zayn wanting a 'normal 22-year-old's life' to bed (holiday, normal etc etc).
